John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum Review

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is a gunsmoke hazy, bloody-knuckle ruthless, impossibly badass Wickian continuation. Every offered and foreseeable ass is proficiently kicked. Or karate chopped. Or headshot combo’d. Or shotgun blasted into oblivion. Or attack dog mauled. Or body-slammed through glass. Or swordplay carved. Or pulverized. Or…you catch my drift. Director Chad Stahelski and writer Derek Kolstad are three films into their action spectacle franchise, and each has raised the last’s ante. More of the same? Yeah, I’m thinking John’s back…again.

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) finds himself “Excommunicado” on the streets of New York City after killing Santino D’Antonio on Continental grounds. All card-holding rights revoked, blacklisted by Continental employees, and $14 million placed on his head. Can someone with Wick’s assassination skills survive against waves of contract killers hungry for his bounty? Especially while still recovering from his John Wick: Chapter 2 injuries?

Film Review: Monstrum (2018) by Huh Jong-ho

The theme of monsters in the Joseon has become a trend lately, with films like “Rampant” and series like “Kingdom” bringing zombies to the particular era. In the case of “Monstrum”, the zombies have given their place to a monster and a story that reminded me much of “Brotherhood of the Wolf”, although the palace conspiracies remained a central theme, as in the aforementioned Korean titles.

During the 22nd year of Jung Jong reign, the plague has spread to the whole kingdom and fear has taken over the people. When rumors about a monster killing and spreading the disease to its victims also starts spreading, fear turns into panic. As his political adversary, Sim Woon, seems to benefit from the turbulence, King Jung Jong is forced to bring his most trusted servant, general Youn Gyeom, back to the capital. The man retired to the country after a

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum image features Mark Dacascos’ lead villain Zero

Thanks to Empire Magazine, we’ve got a look at Mark Dacascos (Brotherhood of the Wolf) as the lead villain Zero, who will be on the hunt for Keanu Reeves’ titular hitman in the upcoming action thriller sequel John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.

“He’s a huge John Wick fan,” Dacascos tells Empire, revealing that his character Zero has respect and admiration for his fellow assassin. “So you’ll see an essence of, ‘I have to kill you, but you know if I didn’t have to do that, we’d be besties!’”

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons… he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds. The victim was a member of the High Table who ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed,

Industry Mourns Samuel Hadida, Pays Tribute To Distributor/Producer’s Passion
Updated with Cannes Film Festival statement, writethru: The international industry is digesting the sudden news that veteran French distributor and producer Samuel Hadida died following a short illness on Monday at the age of 64. Reactions have streamed in about a man who folks agree was passionate, joyful and one-of-a-kind (see tweets below).

FilmNation chief Glen Basner tells Deadline this morning, “I love Sammy and will miss him dearly. His enthusiasm and passion for all things made him larger-than-life, but it also applied to our friendship that made it more meaningful and have more depth. It was familial and what I will miss most.”

Indeed, I recall one recent Cannes Film Festival which was so plagued by rain that execs were doing deals on their phones from hotel lobbies. When I ran into Hadida in the Majestic, he told me he’d just closed a film with Basner but wouldn’t

Milla Jovovich and Tom Hughes to star in Corto Maltese adaptation

Tom Hughes (London Town) and Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) have signed on to star in an adaptation of Hugo Pratt’s classic adventure comics Corto Maltese, which has Brotherhood of the Wolf and Silent Hill helmer Christophe Gans attached to direct.

“Corto Maltese has been a dream project for me since I was a boy reading comics,” Gans tells Variety. “Now that I have the opportunity to bring this incredible story to the big screen, I can think of no better actor to play the adventurous Corto after meeting with Tom Hughes, whom I followed in the TV series Victoria, and who has emerged as one of Britain’s truly top actors.”

“We are assembling a brilliant and talented cast to bring Corto Maltese to life,” added producer samuel Hadida. “I have known Milla Jovovich for a long time, having produced the Resident Evil films that made her a star.

Gans, whose credits include the French “Beauty and the Beast,” “Silent Hill” and “Brotherhood of the Wolf,” will direct from a script by William Schneider.

Principal photography is slated to begin in January in Europe and China.

Why Mark Dacascos is the best piece of casting in John Wick: Chapter 3

Tom Jolliffe on why Mark Dacascos is a great piece of casting in the third John Wick instalment…

Two John Wicks in and the Keanu Reeves fronted action franchise is firmly established as one of the best in recent years. The first film was great. The second was even better. In fact the second film, which I re-watched recently for the first time since seeing it on the big screen, is a visually resplendent hyper-kinetic assault to the senses with the ageless Keanu kicking all kinds of ass.

In the first film Reeves, among many others, has a pretty savage fight against B movie legend (and occasional stunt guy) Daniel Bernhardt. In the second he has a couple of scraps, the first of which (in Rome) is possibly the most relentlessly savage mano-a-mano since They Live, with Common. Among the many short swift brawls, and gun-fu sequences, I’d like

Replay Level? The Best Video Game Movie Scenes

Matt Rodgers on the best ever video game movie scenes…

The first part of 2018 will see two high profile videogame adaptations hit the big screen in an attempt to do what 2016’s Assassin’s Creed couldn’t, by breaking a curse which has stretched back as far as 1993’s infamous Super Mario Bros. movie.

First we’ll get Sony’s Alicia Vikander starring Tomb Raider reboot (March 16th), followed a month later by Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage (April 20th), an adaptation of the 1980’s single-screen arcade game in which a giant gorilla, lizard, and wolf take down a bunch of skyscrapers.

Who knows whether they’ll break the run of cartridge based catastrophes, but rather than focus on the negative aspects of this much maligned sub-genre, here at Flickering Myth we thought we’d replay the best moments from throughout the history of videogame adaptations, starting with…..

Why John Wick director Chad Stahelski is the perfect choice to reboot Highlander

Tom Jolliffe on why John Wick director Chad Stahelski is the perfect choice to helm the Highlander reboot…

Stunt-man turned director Chad Stahelski has certainly had a good start to his burgeoning career as an action auteur. John Wick began what is now in the process of becoming a hugely successful franchise. Two films in, with a booming and expansive box office appeal. Next up for him is, all being well (as this project has long gestated and had directors come and go, year on year) is a remake of Highlander.

Now I should state two things now. Firstly, I love Highlander. The first film is an underrated piece of brilliance. From the visuals, to the music to the sheer style of it, Highlander is one of a kind. It then spawned four more films (none of which were good) and a TV show, as well as comics, anime and more.

French Beauty And The Beast Movie Premieres Graceful First Clip

You wait for a live-action rendition of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and suddenly two come along at once – only this time, there’s a twist.

Whereas before we’ve clocked eyes on Hollywood’s long-standing case of double vision – Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman spring to a mind as a recent example – this alternate take on the fairytale classic hails from French filmmaker Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf, Silent Hill).

Finding Vincent Cassel and Spectre alum Léa Seydoux as the Beast and Belle, respectively, it appears that Gans is cooking up a darker interpretation of the famed legend. That’s judging by this most recent, haunting clip for Beauty and the Beast, which comes to us via The Film Stage and sees Cassel’s rampaging Beast deliver a chilling promise. Amélie star André Dussollier is also among the ensemble.

Watch: Vincent Cassel Desires a Life for His Rose in Exclusive Clip From ‘Beauty and the Beast’

Ahead of Disney’s live-action version next year, this month a new French adaptation of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont‘s classic tale, Beauty and the Beast, will arrive. Helmed by Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf, Silent Hill) and featuring a cast including Vincent Cassel as the titular Beast and Léa Seydoux as the Beauty, we’re pleased to exclusively premiere a clip today.

Filled with haunting imagery as we follow Cassel’s Beast encounters the father of Belle, who has stolen his precious rose for his daughter. In turn, he vows to kill his family, setting up quite a darker fable than what we imagine Disney will offer next year. Ahead of a release later this month, check out the exclusive clip below.

1810. After the wreck of his ships, a financially-ruined merchant (Andre Dussollier) exiles himself in the countryside with his six children. Among them is Belle (Lea Seydoux), his youngest daughter,
