Cool Teaser Trailer For Futuristic Korean Action Film Jin-roh: The Wolf Brigade From The Director of I Saw The Devil

I've got a cool little teaser trailer here worth checking out for an upcoming Korean futuristic action thriller Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade. The movie comes from director Kim Jee-woon, who previously directed I Saw The DevilThe Good the Bad the Weird, and The Last Stand. It's been a couple of years since he's made a movie and this one certainly looks interesting! I love this guy's movies so I'm definitely excited about watching this!

The film is an adaptation of the popular Mamoru Oshii manga. This isn't the first time it was adapted, though. In 1999 there was a feature-length anime film.

The story is set in the near future, "the film takes place in a world where the governments of South and North Korea are on the cusp of reunification, following seven years of preparation. When demonstrations opposing the unification turn more violent, a special police force is formed to combat them.

Black Tom’s Deadpool 2 Role Downsized Due To Concerns Over Budget

From Domino to Cable to Julian Dennison’s Firefist, it’s no secret that Deadpool 2 upped its star power quite considerably, and nowhere is this more apparent than cted]’s surprise cameo.

The David Leitch sequel is currently playing across theaters worldwide – and doing gangbusters, we might add – and as part of Empire’s spoiler-filled special, lead star Ryan Reynolds has weighed in on the addition of Black Tom Cassidy, whose role was a lot smaller than initially expected.

Turns out the Powers That Be over at 20th Century Fox had something to do with downsizing Jack Kesy’s screen time, as Reynolds admits that his original role would have meant Deadpool 2 running over budget.

“Black Tom was just in the movie as a supervillain who has incredible powers and all sorts of stuff. It was the f*cking studio that said ‘You guys are over budget, you can’t afford this.

Deadpool 2 Had Ryan Reynolds in a Secret Second Role
If you didn't hit theaters to see Deadpool 2 last night, there will be Spoilers below, with new details about the surprising and secretive second character that Ryan Reynolds portrayed in the sequel. Even if you did watch the movie in Thursday night sneak previews, you likely didn't know that this secretive character was played by Ryan Reynolds. This is your last chance to avoid Spoilers, so if you haven't watched Deadpool 2 yet, stop reading right now.

There had long been speculation that the iconic X-Men character Juggernaut will have a role in the movie, with early reports claiming that Jack Kesy was playing Juggernaut, although he was ultimately confirmed as Black Tom Cassidy. Those who saw the movie last night learned that Juggernaut did in fact make an appearance, and had a much larger role than most anticipated, but perhaps the most surprising part about this character is

‘Deadpool 2’ & Why Fox Are The Superhero Game-Changers We Need

The year is 2000 and Bryan Singer has unleashed X-Men upon the world – a darker, gritty live-action re-imagining of the beloved animated series and comics. Hugh Jackman was largely an unknown; good superhero films were something of legend; the odds were not against this feature. Little did audiences know, Singer’s film would be somewhat of a landmark for the genre… 18 years on, superheroes populate mainstream cinema and Fox have grown to become quite the juggernaut – this weekend welcomes in the hotly anticipated Deadpool 2 after all. But, it wasn’t just the first X-Men film that reinvigorated the comic-book formula.

Of course, Singer’s 2000 superhero film is looked to as somewhat of a genre classic – seminal for its time, its culture, its nature. Today, there is no shortage of superhero films; not only do Fox have their catalogue of X-Men and the like but we have the McU and Dceu

Ryan Reynolds Actually Played Two Characters In Deadpool 2

There’d been rumours that Juggernaut was going to make his long-awaited return to the X-Men franchise in Deadpool 2 for a while and sure enough, the big guy appears in the form of an enormous CGI creation that’s much closer to the comics character than Vinnie Jones’ interpretation from X-Men: The Last Stand.

It turns out Deadpool’s a massive fan of Cain Marko, too, as he refers to him as his “favourite Marvel character” at one stage. He also lists off numerous X-Men comic issues when encountering him for the first time. When about to face him again later on in the film, Wade even comments that “nothing can stop the Juggernaut,” referencing the title of an iconic two-part comic story which saw Spider-Man battle the X-Men villain (see The Amazing Spider-Man #229-230).

Overall, it was great seeing the beloved character back on the big screen, but

X2: X-men United Was Originally Going To Involve Jean Grey's Full Transformation into Phoenix

I was a big fan of X2: X-Men United! That was a great film in the X-Men film franchise, but it almost turned out to be a very different film. Director Bryan Singer originally planned on incorporating Jean Grey's Dark Phoenix story arc and she would have made her full-fledged transformation into Phoenix. 

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, screenwriter Zak Penn explains that he thought it was too soon to take on that storyline so he talked Singer out of it. 

"On X2, part of how I ended up getting the job on it was that originally that was going to be the Phoenix story. I just said ... 'You've built up this real universe and you should establish it more before you go into Phoenix.' "It was too soon to go into the Phoenix story and it was too soon to get cosmic. I would

Review: Mickey Spillane’S Never-before-published Final Novel "The Last Stand" From Hard Case Crime

  • CinemaRetro
By Giacomo Selloni

Published for the first time anywhere, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Mickey Spillane's birth, come two short novels in the same book. "The Last Stand" (Spillane's final novel) is preceded by "A Bullet for Satisfaction," an unfinished manuscript that was finalized by Spillane's long-time collaborator Max Allan Collins. Both stories are satisfying reads. The book has been published by the Hard Case Crime imprint from Titan Books.

Mickey Spillane is best known for his character Mike Hammer, the fictional P.I. that redefined the "action hero" and spawned countless imitators. Unlike private investigators before him, Mike Hammer was a merciless executor of villains who slept with countless beautiful, willing women. Sound like anyone we know? The first Mike Hammer novel, "I, The Jury," was published in 1947, six years prior to Ian Fleming's James Bond debut, "Casino Royale." It may be argued that if Fleming

New X-Men Costumes Revealed on Dark Phoenix Set

New X-Men Costumes Revealed on Dark Phoenix Set
There's been several different X-Men costumes over the years and it has been revealed that Dark Phoenix will include some interesting changes. The new suits will not be the ones seen at the end of Apocalypse. Instead, they will be based on the 2000's New X-Men comic book run. Even in the leaked set photo, the new suits look pretty awesome and like an improvement over the last time we saw the gang all together.

The new leaked photo from the set of Dark Phoenix features Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, Beast, Quicksilver, and Nightcrawler all in matching suits, which are based on Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely's New X-Men run. Mystique is also shown in the photo, but her costume is always the same. The new blue look with the yellow X's over the chest area is a return to the comics that most fans will welcome with open arms.

Ellen Page Would Love To Return For Fox’s Kitty Pryde Movie

Though the studio is set to be swallowed up by Disney in the next couple of years, 20th Century Fox is – as far as we know – still looking to move forward with its ongoing slate of X-Men movie spinoffs. One of the more recent ones to be announced is the Kitty Pryde standalone which Deadpool director Tim Miller is helming.

As fans will no doubt know, Kitty has only appeared twice in the film franchise to date. Beginning with 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, Ellen Page played the young mutant with phasing abilities, a role she later reprised for 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. And if the actress gets her way, she might just be back for the character’s solo outing.

While speaking to CinemaBlend, Page revealed that she “loved” being part of the X-Men franchise and had always wished that she could have done more with the mutant.

Examining 20th Century Fox's franchise slate

Mark Harrison Feb 28, 2018

Mark looks at what franchises are on Fox's slate, ahead of its impending acquisition by Disney...

This feature contains big spoilers for Logan and War For The Planet Of The Apes.

Recently, we looked at how Paramount Pictures was faring with its upcoming slate of movies. But over the past few months, it's been the union between Disney and 20th Century Fox that's been making headlines.

But as negotiations go on between Fox and the Mouse (and it'll be interesting to see what happens following Comcast's announcement that it wants to buy Sky, and whether that affects Disney's interest), the studio is still, for the time being, turning out new films. It's been speculated by some that Disney only wants the studio's extensive library of content to bolster their new streaming service to rival Netflix, (Fox also owns a 30% share of Hulu) but even if

Chris Claremont Says X-Men: Dark Phoenix Could Be The Casino Royale Of Superhero Movies

Even though Stan Lee and Jack Kirby can be credited for creating the X-Men, we also owe a huge debt of gratitude to Chris Claremont, who penned the comics for decades and established a great deal of the modern mythology. Really, one need look no further than Days of Future Past to see how his influence has been felt on the film franchise in recent years.

Continuing that tradition will be the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which we expect to be generously inspired by the Claremont-scripted Dark Phoenix Saga. Of course, it only makes sense that this topic be brought up whenever he does interviews, with his recent discussion with Screen Crush being no exception.

Make no mistake, what’s about to be said could be regarded as hyperbole similar to claims that Dark Phoenix will “revolutionize” the superhero genre, but they’re strong words, regardless. When being asked about

'Jumanji' Seeks to Hold Off Four New Wide Releases Over MLK Weekend
