‘The Old Guard’ Post-Production Team Was Comprised of 85% Women

Gina Prince-Bythewood‘s new action movie The Old Guard is among the year’s most-watched Netflix original films, and the director made her movie in a way that no other action film of this scale ever has: the film’s post-production team was made up of 85% women. That type of gender ratio, according to Prince-Bythewood, “very rarely happens on any movie, but on an action film, I guarantee you that’s never happened before.” Gina Prince-Bythewood, who has previously directed films like Love & Bask...

‘Knight Rider’ Movie Speeds Back Into Development With James Wan

Knight Rider is one of those properties Hollywood can’t seem to ever fully shake. The notion of a crime fighter using an artificially intelligent, technologically advanced car is evidently just too enticing to let comfortably settle into the ether of ’80s nostalgia, and for the past decade, studios have been trying to make a Knight Rider movie. But after several false starts, a new version is now in the works. Aquaman and Saw director James Wan‘s Atomic Monster production company has teamed up ...

‘John Wick 5’ is Happening, and Will Shoot Back to Back with ‘John Wick 4’

John Wick’s work won’t be done by the end of the fourth movie. During a Lionsgate earnings call today, company CEO John Feltheimer revealed that not only is a fifth Wick movie in the works, but that the studio plans to film that sequel back to back with the upcoming fourth film. Yeah, I’m thinking he’s back (to back). Deadline reports that franchise star Keanu Reeves, who previously filmed The Matrix sequels back-to-back in the early 2000s, is preparing to do it again – this time, with John ...

No, ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ Will Not Be Blowing Up a Historical Bridge and Christopher McQuarrie Has a Very Long Explanation for It

The Mission: Impossible franchise has done it all: it has crashed motorcycles, blown up trucks, and dangled its star Tom Cruise out of planes, helicopters, off cliffs, and out of the tallest skyscraper in the world. So it was almost unsurprising when reports came out that the Mission: Impossible 7 crew were planning to blow up a bridge in Poland. But the film production was met with immediate backlash when it was reported that said bridge was an 111-year-old historical landmark, a piece of the ...

New ‘Tenet’ Teaser Features New Footage and an Introduction From Christopher Nolan

Even though it feels like it’s been a long journey for Tenet to arrive in theaters, in reality, it’s only been a few weeks since the movie was supposed to be released on the big screen. All of the hullabaloo was about whether or not the movie would actually get released this summer by Warner Bros. Pictures, so the movie has been on everyone’s mind. And soon, people will finally get to see it in movie theaters. Since theaters in the United States aren’t yet ready for a new wide release like Tene...

‘The Sleepover’ Trailer: Netflix’s Action Comedy is Like ‘Spy Kids’ Meets ‘National Treasure’ Meets ‘True Lies’

Take the clue-following premise of National Treasure, the kid-centric approach of Spy Kids, and mix a dash of the “spouse doesn’t know about their partner’s secret skills” concept from True Lies, and you get The Sleepover, a new action comedy coming to Netflix later this month. Malin Åkerman (Rock of Ages) plays a former thief who’s pulled back into the game by villains who force her to reunite with her sexy former partner (Joe Manganiello, Magic Mike) to pull a heist. All of this is quite a su...

‘The Man from Nowhere’ Remake Will be a ‘John Wick’ Reunion

John Wick director Chad Stahelski and writer Derek Kolstad are re-teaming for more action. Stahelski will produce and Kolstad will write a remake of The Man from Nowhere, inspired by the 2010 South Korean action film which is, according to /Film managing editor Jacob Hall, pretty much “120 minutes of knife fights.” Sign me up. The Man From Nowhere Deadline has the scoop on The Man From Nowhere remake, which will be produced by Chad Stahelski and written by Derek Kolstad. The project is ...

‘The Matrix’ Was Always an Allegory for the Trans Experience, Confirms Lilly Wachowski

Over the past few years, alternate readings have abounded suggesting that the 1999 science fiction masterpiece The Matrix is an allegory for the transgender experience. Now Lilly Wachowski, one of the film’s writers and directors, has officially confirmed that those ideas were intentional. Watch her speak about how the “corporate world wasn’t ready” to acknowledge such a connection in the video below. “I’m glad that it has gotten out that that was the original intention,” Wachowski said. “...

All Eight ‘Harry Potter’ Movies Will Be Available on Peacock This October

The Harry Potter movies are an extremely important film franchise for Warner Bros. However, just a few months after the launch of HBO Max, Warner’s new streaming service, all eight original Potter movies are leaving the service and shuffling over to a service run by one of WB’s biggest rivals: NBCUniversal. While all eight films will be disappearing from HBO Max later this month, you’ll be able to watch Harry Potter on Peacock starting in October – and you won’t have to pay anything (other than...

‘Starship Troopers’ Honest Trailer: A Satire So Good That People Thought It Was Just a Dumb War Movie

When Starship Troopers came out, it was mostly received as an action-packed sci-fi movie filled with gnarly alien bugs, plenty of graphic violence, and some nudity for the horny teens out there. But slowly people realized that even though the director of RoboCop may not be subtle, he’s certainly not bombastic enough to make such a hollow movie. Instead, as the Starship Troopers Honest Trailer reminds us, this is a smart satire of the propaganda of war and the stupid people who buy into it. Woul...

‘The King’s Man’ May be a Prequel, But It Sets Up ‘Kingsman 3,’ Matthew Vaughn Teases

The King’s Man takes place decades before the events of the Kingsman series, and yet director Matthew Vaughn has found ways for the upcoming Ralph Fiennes-led prequel film to set up the events of a potential Kingsman 3. In an interview with Empire, the director of the upcoming period spy action film The King’s Man confirmed that the prequel to the Kingsman film series will be setting up events that will happen in the potential Kingsman 3: “We’ve put seeds for what’s going to happen in Kingsm...

‘Mulan’ Will Be Released on Disney+ on September 4, But You’ll Have to Pay to Watch It

After delaying the release of Mulan several times, the Walt Disney Company has made an unprecedented announcement about the future of its latest live-action remake. The film will be released on Disney+ on September 4, 2020 – but you’ll have to pay $29.99 to rent it. Director Niki Caro‘s live-action adaptation of the story was originally set to hit theaters back in March, but as the global pandemic began to take hold, Disney thought it would be wise to push it back to July. Then they pushed it...

‘Mulan’ Will Be Released on Disney+ on September 4, But You’ll Have to Pay to Watch It [Updated]

Update: Disney CEO Bob Chapek explained that the company’s distribution approach for Mulan is being viewed as “a one-off” tactic instead of “some new business windowing model.” I’ve added his full statement below our original article, which begins below.

‘Pineapple Express 2’ Didn’t Get Made Due to a Budget Disagreement with Sony

Pineapple Express was one of Seth Rogen‘s biggest hits, raking in over $101 million worldwide on a budget of just $27 million. So you would think that Sony Pictures would have been chomping at the bit to get a sequel off the ground. Well, at one point the studio was very interested in making Pineapple Express 2, but in one of those reminders that the movie business is more about the business and less about the movie, Sony balked at the budget proposed by producer Judd Apatow. Seth Rogen recen...

‘Bullet Train’ Cast: ‘The Kissing Booth’ Star Joey King to Play an Assassin Opposite Brad Pitt

Joey King, one of the stars of the Netflix romantic comedy franchise The Kissing Booth, could end up handing out the kiss of death on screen in a new movie. According to a new report, King is in talks to join Brad Pitt (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) in Bullet Train, an action thriller from Hobbs & Shaw and Deadpool 2 director David Leitch that focuses on a group of assassins who find themselves aboard the same high-speed train.

Amazon Renews ‘Hunters’ for a Second Season, Because Nazis Still Need to Be Taught a Lesson

Earlier this year, Amazon brought the conspiracy thriller series Hunters to their streaming library. The series created by David Weil and executive produced by filmmaker Jordan Peele follows a pack of Nazi hunters trying to track down hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials who are living among us in 1977 New York and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the United States. Now the story will continue with Amazon ordering a second season of Hunters. Amazon sent out a press release announcing...

‘Seized’ Trailer: It’s ‘Taken’ Meets ‘John Wick’, With Martial Arts Superstar Scott Adkins

These days, Scott Adkins is the worst-kept secret in the world of martial arts movies. The ass-kicking English actor flew under the radar for a few years in films like the Undisputed sequels before making enough of an impression on Hollywood to play supporting roles in mainstream films like Doctor Strange, Zero Dark Thirty, and The Bourne Ultimatum. But hardcore action movie fans know him from his low-budget, down and dirty action thrillers like Ninja: Shadow of a Tear and Universal Soldier: Da...

‘Beyond Good and Evil’ Movie: Adaptation of Video Game Coming From ‘Detective Pikachu’ Director

After directing last year’s Pokémon Detective Pikachu movie, director Rob Letterman is sticking in the world of video games for his next film. A new report says Letterman will direct a Beyond Good and Evil movie for Netflix, which is based on Ubisoft’s 2003 video game that’s built a small cult following since its release. The Hollywood Reporter has the news about Letterman’s new project, and they say the film will be a hybrid of live-action and animation. Letterman makes sense as the directo...

‘The Last of Us’ TV Series Will Expand and Enhance the Video Game’s Story, Says Writer/Producer Craig Mazin

The Last of Us, the mega-popular PlayStation game which received a sequel earlier this year, is soon heading to HBO as a television series. Writer/producer Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) has given a brief update about the TV adaptation, promising that it won’t “undo” what fans love about the video game’s story. Speaking with BBC Radio 5 (via IGN), Mazin explained that while he knows The Last of Us TV series will be under scrutiny from fans, the show will “enhance” the story of the game instead of de...

‘Tenet’ May Have Enough U.S. Theaters Reopening to Keep Labor Day Release, Even Without New York and L.A.

Christopher Nolan‘s anticipated new sci-fi action movie Tenet has been the linchpin in figuring out when movie theater chains across the United States will reopen. Whenever Warner Bros. Pictures has moved back Tenet from a previously set release date, movie theaters have pushed back their dates for reopening and other new theatrical releases have shuffled their dates too. The big hold-up has been the uncertainty of when Los Angeles and New York theaters would reopen since those are the two larg...

‘Honest Thief’ Trailer: Liam Neeson is a Reformed Bank Robber Whose Second Chance is Taken From Him

He’s known as the In and Out Bandit, and you won’t sully his good name. Liam Neeson may have declared himself done with action back in 2017, but you can’t retire those particular set of skills. And now the upcoming thriller Honest Thief has got Neeson back where we want him: behind a phone, making threats in his wonderfully gravelly voice. Neeson stars as a reformed bank robber in a movie from Ozark co-creator Mark Williams, who gets unjustly framed for murder and must clear his name. Watch the...

‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2: The Darksaber Will Play a Key Role in the New Season, Says Giancarlo Esposito

Giancarlo Esposito picked up an Emmy nomination yesterday for his work on the Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian, where we last saw his Moff Gideon character holding an ancient weapon known as the Darksaber. Anyone who watched the series without first watching the Star Wars animated shows probably saw that glowing black blade and thought, “Cool, a new lightsaber!” But fans of the animated shows lost their minds, because the weapon actually has a deep history behind it. In a new interview,...

‘Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins’ Delayed to 2021

Paramount Pictures recently pushed back the release of both A Quiet Place Part II and Top Gun: Maverick, two anticipated sequels that already had their release dates delayed previously thanks to the coronavirus pandemic shutting down movie theaters around the world. Now the studio is delaying another one of their major theatrical releases intended for later this year with Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins vacating its October 2020 date for a release sometime in 2021.

‘Back to the Future’ 4K Trilogy Comes With Audition Footage of Ben Stiller, Kyra Sedgwick, and More

The 30th anniversary of Back to the Future took place back in 2015, which somehow feels like it was literal eons ago and only yesterday at the same time. I think it’s because even through multiple generations, Robert Zemeckis‘s time travel comedy has never really left the public consciousness. But to celebrate the film’s 35th anniversary later this year, the entire trilogy is finally getting a 4K release for the first time ever. And while the new Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy box set...

More Evidence Points to ‘Tenet’ Opening Overseas This Summer, Leaving the U.S. in Limbo

Tenet, the movie that keeps getting delayed due to the coronavirus, is now in a kind of limbo. Rather than keep kicking the can down the lane, Warner Bros. pulled the Christopher Nolan movie off its schedule entirely, and are waiting to announce a new date. When the news came that the film was being pulled yet again, it was accompanied by rumblings that Warners would be throwing out the traditional release playbook. Instead, the studio might be considering opening Tenet overseas this summer fir...

Gerard Butler Disaster Movie ‘Greenland’ Delayed in the U.S., Now Opening Overseas First

Is this a sign of things to come? Or just a smart business decision? Greenland, the latest disaster pic featuring Gerard Butler, will now open overseas before it comes to American shores. This is a relatively small production from STX Films, but larger studios – like Warner Bros. – might soon be taking similar approaches to big movies. Greenland Per Collider, Greenland, the Gerard Butler action movie about a comet about to collide with Earth, is moving from its August 14 U.S. release dat...

Michael B. Jordan’s ‘Without Remorse’ May Go Straight to Amazon Instead of Opening in Theaters

Amazon Studios is reportedly in final negotiations to acquire Without Remorse, the Michael B. Jordan-led action thriller based on the novel by Tom Clancy. Paramount currently holds the distribution rights to the project and had a theatrical release planned for later this year, but if the deal goes through, Amazon is expected to drop the movie directly onto its Amazon Prime Video service. A shift to Amazon would also put this new movie alongside the company’s Jack Ryan series, which stars John K...

Tom Cruise is going to do what has never been done before: star in a movie among the literal stars. The Mission: Impossible actor is taking on a seemingly impossible mission of his own, because he’s going to travel to space and shoot a movie on board the International Space Station. Universal Pictures is now in talks to distribute the finished product, which would give the studio a chance to see a real version of its own logo appear on screen in one of its movies.
