The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)
Its predecessor, The New Order, was a dish of good ideas that wound up feeling a little undercooked. It was daring to be different but also trying to pay lip service to the Wolfenstein legacy. This time around, the wildly talented bunch at Stockholm’s MachineGames have turned up the heat. That doesn’t mean bigger explosions and bigger baddies, mind you. It means a sense of place and a real sense of confidence.
Indonesian and international experts discussed the opportunities for more international shoots to come to the archipelago, in a panel at the Indonesian pavilion in the Village International on Saturday.
Endah Sulistianti, deputy chairman of the Indonesian Agency for Creative Economy, spoke about how the current government is developing the film sector and is working on having a tax incentive in place by 2018.
Five cities have started their own film commissions to offer one-stop shops for filmmakers – they are Siak, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Bojonegoro and Banyuwangi.
Los Angeles-based producer George Zakk, whose credits include The Chronicles Of Riddick, recalled his experience of shooting 2013’s The Philosophers in Indonesia and praised affordability, “extraordinary” locations, and the skill of local crews.
The panel also included Lalu Rois Amri, head of locations promotion at the Indonesia Film Council; and Jakarta-based producer Meiske Taurisia of Palari Films. Screen International
2016 was no exception, either, after the back-to-back flops of Assassin’s Creed and Duncan Jones’ budding franchise-starter, Warcraft: The Beginning. There have been rumblings of potential sequels for both blockbusters, but without any tangible development in almost six months, the thought of revisiting the Animus – and indeed the mystical realm of Azeroth – is about to be chalked up as wishful thinking.
But if Hollywood executives have been deterred by those box office bombs, it doesn’t show; The Division and the Alicia Vikander-fronted Tomb Raider are just two examples of high-profile video game movies incubating in development, and Deadline brings
Zod was previously played by Terrence Stamp in the features "Superman" and "Superman II", Michael Shannon in "Man of Steel" and Callum Blue in the TV series "Smallville".
The character 'Dru-Zod' created by Robert Bernstein and George Papp, debuted in DC's "Adventure Comics" #283 (April 1961), as a warlord from 'Krypton', home planet of 'Superman'.
Like all Kryptonians under a yellow sun, General Zod possesses high-level superhuman strength, speed and endurance sufficient to stand against 'Superman' and other Kryptonians; super hearing; x-ray vision; telescopic, microscopic and heat vision; super-breath and freeze-breath; virtual invulnerability; accelerated healing and flight.
Due to his background as a Kryptonian general, Zod possesses a detailed knowledge of military tactics, battle strategy and competent military leader. Because he was trained
The screenwriter behind Fast & Furious 8 discusses some far-out ideas for future Fast sequels...
The Fate Of The Furious. Fast & The Furious 8. Fast 8. Or, as it's known by its keyboard shortcut, F8. The latest in the long-running, wheel-spinning franchise sees Vin Diesel team up with a super hacker played by Charlize Theron in yet another car-related, action-packed caper. The movie's out this week, and if it's a success, we're sure to see yet more installments roll out of Universal's garage in the near future.

In the run-up to Fast 8's release, screenwriter Chris Morgan's been talking to Uproxx about some of the directions the series could potentially take - and he certainly isn't ruling out the possibility of a sequel set outside Earth's orbit.
Given that half-hearted innuendo, we’re going to assume that means more boring sex scenes, but maybe the unrated edition has an in-depth explanation of The Chronicles Of Riddick poster in Christian Grey’s childhood bedroom. That truly is the movie’s greatest mystery. (For what it’s worth, Jamie Dornan has said that the poster is there because it’s ”kind of funny,” but we have to think there’s more to it.)
Oh, but this is the relationshippy Fifty Shades entry. Right. Christian Grey (A Bucket Of Dry Cement Jamie Dornan) cannot live another day with Anastasia (Dakota Johnson), so he opens contract negotiations. No punishments, no rules, and no secrets. Ana doesn’t take much convincing, and their relationship blossoms under the new respectful boundaries. Sexual desires become less whippy, but something still isn’t right.
Picking up mere days after the events of Sam Taylor-Johnson’s 2015 “Fifty Shades of Grey,” Foley’s film quickly shifts gears away from the doom and gloom of the first film to give audiences something sexier, sillier and a fair bit soapier. After gliding through a series of literally tattered childhood memories that
Asura is an fantasy film loosely based on a Buddhist mythological realm of "pure desire" that becomes threatened by a lower heavenly kingdom, cue epic battles and a $100 million budget.
To mitigate the risk of the film's epic production budget China is tapping Oscar-winning winning talent and Hollywood veterans. Peng Zhang is directing and has 20 years of experience as a stunt coordinator on films like Ant-Man, Kingsman, 47 Ronin, Kick-Ass, and The Chronicles of Riddick. Ngila Dickson is costume designer and won an Oscar for her work on The Lord of The Rings. Charlie Iturriaga is visual effects supervisor
Deadline reports that Tom Engleman (The Chronicles of Riddick, The Lone Ranger) is set to produce. DreamWorks Animation is also behind the animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender, which debuted on Netflix this summer. It isn't known if there will be any connection between the live-action project and the animated series.
There had previously been a live action project called Voltron: Defender of the Universe, which was being developed by Atlas Entertainment several years ago. Thomas Dean DOnnelly and
"...the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000′s hit sci-fi film 'Pitch Black' and 2004′s 'The Chronicles of Riddick' reunites writer/director David Twohy and Vin Diesel, reprising his role as the antihero 'Riddick', a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.
"The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an 'emergency beacon' and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.
"The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while
