American Horror Story: Has Winter Been the Key to Stopping Kai's Cult All Along?

American Horror Story's seventh season, Cult, revolves around the charismatic, blue-haired Kai Anderson (Evan Peters) and his dangerously loyal, bloodthirsty group of acolytes. We've known from the start that their masked reign of terror on the town, and specifically on the phobia-prone Ally Mayfair-Richards (Sarah Paulson), was going to reach a boiling point eventually. After five episodes, it seems like it's finally getting close. In episode five, "Holes," Kai and the rest of his killer clowns embark on a mission to kill local newscaster Bob (Dermot Mulroney) and then his gimp, whom they find hanging from hooks upstairs. Although they kill both men, a few members of the cult seem shaken up over it: Ivy (who immediately rips off her elephant mask to puke in the bathroom), seemingly innocent cameraman R.J., and Winter (who leaves her brother to calm down Ivy in the bathroom). Because R.J. shows

Game Of Thrones Sets Record For...Setting People On Fire?

If anticipation could be measured, it’s safe to say HBO’s Game of Thrones would hold the record. Until the time when that becomes possible, the show will have to settle for a different record, that being setting the most people on fire for an entertainment production. Fans must be drooling at the mere sound of this as it implies Daenerys has let her pets loose and they’re just torching the s**t out of everything in sight. Showrunner David Benioff spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the world record:

“In one battle scene we set more stuntmen on fire than have ever been simultaneously set on fire. Our stunt coordinator really wanted to get in the Guinness Book of World Records for this.”

While there isn’t a current record holder, as Guiness doesn’t keep track of these types of things, stunt-coordinator Rowley Irlam, who has seen

22 Actors Who Crossed The Marvel/DC Movie Divide

Marvel/DC

When something becomes as insanely popular as the comic book movie genre, it’s inevitable that a hell of a lot of extremely famous actors will lend their talents to it. And as with the binary split of the fanbases, typical thinking says you’re either Marvel or you’re DC. Crossing the divide would surely be a gross act of betrayal?

Surprisingly, though, there are actually a high number of stars who have appeared in both.

For some fans, they are committing the eighth deadly sin. Such is the rivalry between Marvel and DC that they argue actors should pick a side and stick with it, especially if their first role struck a bum note. Hence why Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman, after murdering Daredevil, initially resulted in a very hostile backlash from comic book movie aficionados.

But Hollywood is a hell of a lot more

Red: Warren Ellis’ comic series is becoming a TV show

It’s already inspired two films, but now it looks like Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's Red is heading to the small screen…

Remember Red and Red 2? The Bruce Willis-starring films based on Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's comic book series Red? Of course you do. Well, now, the same property is being adapted for TV.

NBC is the network behind this idea, and they’ve got Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber - who wrote the 2010 film, and its sequel – at the helm. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian – who produced the films – are involved, too.

There’s no word yet on what the announcement of this TV series means for the rumours of a Red 3 film, but our best guess is that the TV show has taken its place, seeing as so much the behind-the-scenes talent has jumped ship to the telly realm. That’s

Red heading to the small screen courtesy of NBC

Deadline has revealed that NBC is developing a small screen adaptation of Red, which is being produced by the creative team behind the 2010 movie and its 2013 sequel.

Written by Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber, who penned both movies, the small screen take on Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner’s comic book series “will retain the core concept of the films but will be set in a more grounded and authentic world, focusing on the characters’ darkly hilarious struggles to survive civilian life as they simultaneously fight for and against the very organization that threw them out.”

Red tells the story of a group of former CIA agents designated ‘Retired Extremely Dangerous’, who are forced back into action after an assassination attempt.

Lionsgate TV is producing the series, alongside Di Bonaventura Pictures Television.

Bruce Willis Action Comedy 'Red' Is Becoming a TV Show

Before long, ever movie will become a TV show in the future. It's certainly not a new idea, as many movies have gotten the TV adaptation treatment. But over the past year, each network has ramped up this idea, abandoning new ideas to instead focus on series that already have a built in audience and title recognition. The latest movie series to head to the small screen is Red, which debuted in 2010 and was followed by a sequel in 2013. NBC is behind this new iteration, though it's not known if Summit Entertainment has now abandoned the idea of another big screen sequel.

NBC is developing the Red TV series as an hourlong action drama that will be directly based on the feature film franchise. The small screen version is coming from the big screen series' creative team. Jon Hoeber and&#160Erich Hoeber, the duo behind both the Red and Red 2 screenplay,

Elderly action heroes and Hollywood age issues

The arrival of The Expendables 3 leads James to the conclusion that, when it comes to being an action hero, age is just a number...

"All I have produced before the age of 70 is not worth taking into account. At 73 I have learned a little... a little about the real structure of nature, of animals, plants, trees, birds, fishes and insects. In consequence when I am 80, I shall have made still more progress. At 90 I shall penetrate the mystery of things; at 100 I shall certainly have reached a marvellous stage; and when I am 110, everything I do, be it a dot or a line, will be alive." - Hokusai, the Japanese artist who painted the famous 'Great Wave off Kanagawa' and kept on creating astounding art until his death at the age of 88.

"I'm too old for this shit." - Roger Murtaugh, the Lapd homicide detective played by Danny Glover

'Red 2' deleted scene: Helen Mirren speaks softly and carries a big grenade -- Exclusive

'Red 2' deleted scene: Helen Mirren speaks softly and carries a big grenade -- Exclusive
An action movie like Red 2, which is based on characters from Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner’s comic book, isn’t exactly burdened with the restrictions of reality. Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) and his collection of Retired Extremely Dangerous operatives can blow up city blocks, surreptitiously hop-scotch across the globe, and ingeniously escape from the most dire of circumstances; and if some of their Houdini breakouts are borderline unbelievable, well… that’s part of the fun.

In Red 2, which arrives on Blu-ray tomorrow, Moses reunites with aging agents (Helen Mirren and John Malkovich) and his best gal (Mary-Louise Parker

Second Opinion - Red 2 (2013)

Red 2, 2013.

Directed by Dean Parisot.

Starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lee Byung-hun, and Anthony Hopkins.

Synopsis:

Retired C.I.A. agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device.

Without fear of reducing a review to its simplest common denominator, if you liked 2010’s Red then you’re going to like Red 2 just as much, maybe even more. If you didn’t like the first film, then you’re probably not going to get an enjoyment for this sequel.

Thankfully, I enjoyed Red for what it was and thought it delivered enough action and laughs to give this sequel a look. The result was yet another thoroughly enjoyable mix of action and laughs, even surpassing the original in terms of sheer and unabashed fun; not something I have found

Film Review: 'Red 2'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ We've certainly been heavily dosed with geriatric action thrillers in recent years, with Arnie taking on The Last Stand, Sylvester Stallone heading up The Expendables and Bruce Willis popping up in anything his agent prescribes. However, none can boast the hospital waiting room worth of talent of Red 2 (2013). Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins join Willis as contract killer OAPs codenamed REDs - Retired, Extremely Dangerous - who first moseyed onto our screens with the sleeper hit original in 2010. Willis reprises his role as former CIA officer Frank Moses, who's now settled into domesticity.

Alongside sweetheart Sarah (Mary Louise Parker), Frank is now more used to doing the weekly shop at Costco (the first of many shameless product placements) than pistol-whipping hired goons. He's lured out of retirement, again, by his unhinged pal Marvin (John Malkovich), when they are falsely tied with Cold-War era nuclear plot by the name of 'Nightshade'.

Red 2 Review

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Comic book movies have gotten a bit too serious of late. Dark. Brooding. Po-faced. Sure, we all loved Christopher Nolan’s tortured Dark Knight trilogy and Zack Snyder delivered the year’s most intelligent blockbuster (so far) with his gap year Superman slowly finding himself while bumming around being a crab fisherman in Man Of Steel. But does anyone really care if Tony Stark’s having nightmares and panic attacks in Iron Man 3? We just wanna see someone get punched through a building. And yeah, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine may be bad-ass but really he’s just Victor Meldrew with muttonchops and a bad manicure – a grumpy old codger whose memory ain’t what it used to be.

To be honest, if we wanted subtle character studies of damaged people we wouldn’t be watching a movie with the words Marvel Studios or DC Entertainment anywhere in the credits.

Red 2 Review

Bruce Willis is fast becoming the poster boy for retirement-refusal – his Die Hard franchise is perhaps growing a little flaccid but there is no denying the man’s commitment to kicking ass as he draws closer to the big 6-0. In 2010 he good-naturedly embraced the comedy potential of his position and – together with Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Morgan Freeman – was classified Retired Extremely Dangerous aka Red.

Red – based upon the Warren Ellis/Cully Hamner graphic novel – was an entertaining ride, modelled after classic ‘30s screwball comedies, it delighted in offering opposition to the Oap stereotype and made reasonable use of its exemplary cast. Now the team have reunited for another caper: this time they are on a quest to locate a deadly device that has gone astray. The next-generation gadget, nicknamed ‘Nightshade’, has the potential to shift the balance of world power and is being sought by some of

Red 2: 5 Things To Know About the Bruce Willis-Headlined Sequel

Red 2: 5 Things To Know About the Bruce Willis-Headlined Sequel
Bruce Willis, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren return for another go-round at the spies, guns and intrigue thing as the Retired Extremely Dangerous crew. Also back from the original: Mary-Louise Parker as civilian Sarah Ross. As a follow-up to the 2010 surprise hit (which was itself based on the DC comic book), the sequel keeps the one-liners flowing and the Ocean's Thirteen vibe alive in an adventure that spans the globe. The plot concerns some device that threatens one of the world's biggest cities, but don't worry about it. Sibling screenwriters Jon and Erich Hoeber take their inspiration from the cheeky Roger Moore era of James Bond, so nothing's ever so dire that a funny quip by Mirren about weapons of mass...

Ebiri on Red 2: No Movie With This Much Ass-Kicking Should Feel So Lifeless
If the very idea of aging, respected actors going “chuk-chuk” as they pump shotguns makes you titter with glee, then by all means don’t let me stop you from seeing Red 2, because it certainly delivers on that score. What some of us call the Fallacy of the Profane Grandpa — older actors saying and doing wacky, nasty things — has been around forever. (Alan Arkin won an Oscar for it not too long ago.) Now we have the Fallacy of the Locked and Loaded Grandpa (and Grandma). It’s a gag that wore out its welcome long ago; I vaguely recall laughing back in 1993, when Hard Target featured a slow-motion shot of Wilford Brimley riding away in slo-mo from an exploding house. Today it’s just another thing.In case you didn’t know, Red is a code name that stands for “Retired and Extremely Dangerous.” In the previous film,

Review: 'Red 2' Brings Energy and Excitement to a Very Old Novelty

A movie like Red 2 doesn't have to go through much effort to be an entertaining piece of film. With a cast that includes Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Anthony Hopkins, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, the chemistry and dynamic between all the main characters seems somewhat built-in. The guns in their hands and the bullets whizzing by their heads is just an icing on this cake. Without even seeming to try all that hard, Red 2 ends up being loads more entertaining than its predecessor, giving us a constant barrage of bullets and fun actors seemingly having the time of their lives. At least Willis is smiling. As with the first film, the one-time John McClane plays Frank Moses, the former CIA agent and hunter/killer extraordinaire who is now enjoying a peaceful retirement - Red stands for Retired and Extremely Dangerous - with his new girlfriend, Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker). When his old "hunting" buddy,

Film Review: Red 2

It seems like Bruce Willis is the undeniable king of appearing in unnecessary sequels. His conscience as of late has to have gone something like this: “Parts in The Expendables 2 and GI Joe: Retaliation, yeah sure why not?” Or how about, “Another Die Hard movie that’s basically an insult to the fundamental ideas of the original? Well if there’s a lucrative paycheck involved, then okay.” And I know it came out nearly ten years ago, but don’t even get me started on The Whole Ten Yards. Now we’ve got Red 2, one of those head-scratching sequels that make you wonder how it was even an option until you check the box office returns on the original. The first Red movie was made for a modest $58 million and made upwards of $199 million in domestic and foreign ticket sales.

Red 2 – The Review

Review by Dana Jung

In 2010, Red successfully mixed a mostly unknown director, a modest budget, and a cast of actors who were—how to put this delicately—all “of a certain age,” to become a surprise hit (over $200 million worldwide). Well, the entire Red ( “Retired, Extremely Dangerous”) gang of Frank, Sarah, Victoria, Ivan, and Marvin are back with more fun amid the action and blazing gun battles.

Beginning some time after the first film, Frank (Bruce Willis) is eagerly planning all the home improvement projects he can work on now that he’s safe with Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker). Let loose in a hardware store, Frank is like a kid in a candy shop; unfortunately, his enthusiasm is not shared by Sarah, who loves Frank but wistfully wishes for more of the thrilling man of adventure she met in the first film. Enter Marvin, with his usual paranoid fears of being watched and targeted,

Mad Max's Weekend Movie Guide: 'The Conjuring' & More

"The phenomena are there, really there! That’s why I say, either you know or you don’t know spirit phenomena exist. If you don’t know, go investigate the findings yourself, but don’t tell me you don’t believe in spirits." — Ed Warren

Greetings from the apocalypse! Well "Pacific Rim" came and is on its way to "went," but I loved it just the same. Of this week's many new releases only one truly stands out, and it’s the lowest-budget one of the bunch.
