‘John Wick 4’ Adds Another Certified Badass With Hiroyuki Sanada

Hiroyuki Sanada (Lost, Westworld, Mortal Kombat) was originally set to star in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum as Zero, Wick’s primary adversary in that film. But an Achilles tendon injury took him out of contention, and he was eventually replaced by Mark Dacascos. Now history is righting itself, because Sanada has reportedly been cast in John Wick 4, reuniting with his old 47 Ronin co-star Keanu Reeves. According to Collider, Sanada has been added to the John Wick 4 cast, where he will pla...

‘The Rocketeer’ Star Billy Campbell Reflects on a Superhero Masterpiece as It Turns 30 [Interview]

This month marks a milestone for one of the most underrated Disney films. The Rocketeer arrived in theaters in the summer of 1991, delivering a 1930s-era adventure of a pilot who stumbles upon a jetpack being sought after by gangsters, FBI agents, Nazis, and millionaire industrialist Howard Hughes. Though the film failed to take off at the box office, its fans are legion (and this writer counts himself among them). As the film turns 30, /Film sat down virtually with Billy Campbell, the actor wh...

‘F9’ Behind-the-Scenes Videos Showcase the Movie’s Practical Stunts

F9 explodes into theaters next week, and with more than a year of extra anticipation from fans, many of whom are eager to return to theaters for a big event movie, it feels like this could be one of the biggest box office hits of 2021.

‘Everest’ Will See Ewan McGregor Scale a Mountain With ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Director Doug Liman

Mount Everest, the world’s tallest mountain above sea level, has been the subject of several movies and documentaries, including a star-studded but mostly forgettable 2015 film about the 1996 disaster that claimed eight lives. But Edge of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman is now set to make his own Mount Everest film – the not-exactly-creatively-titled Everest – and Ewan McGregor (Trainspotting, Moulin Rouge), Sam Heughan (Outlander), and Mark Strong (Green Lantern, Shazam!) ...

Vin Diesel, a Terrible Liar, Essentially Confirms He’ll Appear in the ‘Avatar’ Sequels

Last fall, James Cameron confirmed that live-action production on Avatar 2 had been completed down in New Zealand, and the crew was on the verge of finishing shooting for Avatar 3. However, there are still two more sequels slated in the sci-fi franchise, and it sounds like Vin Diesel will be part of them when the time comes. Back in the spring of 2019, Vin Diesel posted an Instagram video from the set of the Avatar sequels. At the time, the Fast and Furious franchise star seemed to hint that he...

New ‘Indiana Jones’ Trilogy Poster Set Gives the Franchise’s MacGuffins the Spotlight

There are so many Indiana Jones posters out there that it can be hard to find a fresh angle to celebrate the beloved adventure movies. But artist Lyndon Willoughby has created a fantastic Indiana Jones trilogy poster set that puts the focus on three of the iconic “MacGuffins” (you know, the artifacts Indy is looking for) from the original trilogy. Plus, he also figured out a way to include a memorable shot from each of the movies. See all of the Lyndon Willoughby Indiana Jones trilogy posters b...

‘F9’ Director Justin Lin on Returning to the Series and How You Top a Rocket Car [Interview]

When Justin Lin was directing 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, the idea of bringing the action series to an end was a pipe dream. Lin was preparing to exit the Fast and Furious franchise, moving on to direct a Star Trek film and episodes of prestige TV like True Detective, and the concept of bringing the Fast and Furious movies to a satisfying close was something better suited to casual chatter with star Vin Diesel, not something that was actually on the table. Cut to nine years later, and Lin is prepa...

‘The Tomorrow War’ Trailer: Chris Pratt Fights for the Future in Amazon’s Sci-fi Blockbuster

Watch the final trailer for The Tomorrow War trailer below.

‘Red Sonja’ Movie May Be Casting Another Marvel Actor

Millennium’s Red Sonja cast may have just added another actor who has previously played in the Marvel Studios sandbox. Hannah John-Kamen, who played the mysterious villain Ghost in 2019’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, is starring in the sword-and-sandal fantasy epic that’s been mired in development hell for years, and now it appears that Thor and Thor: The Dark World actress Jaimie Alexander may be joining her in a whole different type of comic book movie.

‘Spider-Man 4’ Fight Animatic Shows Off an Action Scene From Sam Raimi’s Abandoned Sequel

The year was 2010. Casting news was ramping up about Spider-Man 4, the fourth installment of director Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man film series for Sony Pictures. John Malkovich was tapped to play The Vulture, and Anne Hathaway was in talks to play Felicia Hardy – who, in this iteration, would not have been the catsuit-wearing thief Black Cat, but would instead be the daughter of The Vulture known as The Vulturess. That movie came crashing down and Sony ultimately moved on to Marc Webb’s The Amazing S...

Five Things to Love About ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’ on Its 30th Birthday

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, the 1991 gritty reboot of the Robin Hood legend, turns 30 today. And while there are plenty of warranted criticisms against the film, there’s also plenty of stuff to love, too. Sure, the movie has no real grasp on the historical elements it injects into the mythology, and Kevin Costner‘s attempt at an English accent is laughable. But Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is not without its charms. So here are five things to love about Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. 1...

New ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Logo Video Teases an ‘Into the Spider-Verse’ Connection

Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe appears to be extremely interested in the idea of the multiverse: a series of separate, distinct universes running parallel to one another. Some characters have the ability to jump in and out of those universes, and before we see Doctor Strange grapple with the Multiverse of Madness next year, Spider-Man: No Way Home is primed to take audiences into that chaos by re-introducing familiar heroes and villains from previous iterations of Spider-Man movies in...

How the “Justice for Han” Campaign Was Instrumental in Bringing Sung Kang Back in ‘F9’

When the #JusticeforHan campaign first sprung up in the wake of the eighth entry of the Fast and the Furious franchise, The Fate of the Furious, Justin Lin wasn’t even aware of the fervor that had kicked up around the fan-favorite character that he had introduced in Tokyo Drift. Lin had stepped away from the Fast and Furious franchise with 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, having left Sung Kang‘s Han Lue to his tragic, seemingly random doom in Tokyo. But after the seventh Fast and Furious film introduce...

‘F9’ Director Justin Lin on the Stunt That Was Too Crazy (And Too Expensive) to Make It Into the Movie

For the Fast and Furious franchise, the sky is the limit. Quite literally in F9, a spectacle-filled action sequel in which just one of the many wild action scenes involves sending a car up to space. But director and co-writer Justin Lin — returning to the franchise after eight years away — found that even the sky has limits. This post contains some spoilers for an action scene teased in the trailers. But proceed with caution. Lin and the F9 team have shown their dedication to practical effec...

‘Black Widow’ is Similar to ‘Captain America: Winter Soldier’, According to Director Cate Shortland

For myself and many others, 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a high point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The way that film balances typical Marvel action sequences and solid performances with paying lip service to weighty themes about government, surveillance, and betrayal makes it stand out, but the dynamic, complicated relationship between old pals Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes is the film’s beating heart. If you liked that movie, we have good news. In a new interview about Bl...

‘Toxic Avenger’ Reboot Casts Kevin Bacon as Villain to Battle Peter Dinklage

Kevin Bacon is about to get his hands dirty. The Tremors and Footloose star has been cast in Legendary’s The Toxic Avenger, a reboot of the ultra-low-budget franchise that began with a 1984 film that inexplicably spawned multiple sequels, an animated series, a comic, and a stage musical. Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) has already been cast in the lead role, and Bacon will be playing the villain.

Netflix’s ‘Resident Evil’ Series Casts ‘John Wick’ Actor Lance Reddick as Villain Albert Wesker

Netflix has taken a different approach to casting a key role in its live-action Resident Evil series. Whereas the villainous character of Albert Wesker, the Big Bad of the entire Resident Evil franchise, has previously been portrayed as a blonde white guy, showrunner Andrew Dabb (Supernatural) has opted to switch things up by casting Lance Reddick (John Wick, The Wire) in that significant role.

Netflix has released the Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness opening scene ahead of the CG anime series’ debut in July.
