‘The Suicide Squad’ Star David Dastmalchian is Accomplishing His Dreams, and He Wants the Same For You [Interview]

What a time for David Dastmalchian. For starters, we’ll soon see him as Polka-Dot Man in The Suicide Squad. What was once an obscure comic book character may soon be, thanks to James Gunn and the actor, a character we won’t soon forget. Dastmalchian is also in the adaptation of one of the most celebrated science fiction novels of all time, Dune. It’s the actor’s third collaboration with filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, who previously cast him in Prisoners and Blade Runner 2049. Plus, the actor recen...

‘Dune’ Star David Dastmalchian Says Script is “True to the Spirit of the Novel,” His Character “Not Like Any Human” Encountered Before

Dune may be one of our most anticipated pandemic-delayed movies currently on the calendar. Let’s put it this way: if vaunted filmmakers such as Alejandro Jodorowsky (whose planned project ultimately fell through, though that doesn’t mean he has any shortage of Dune opinions) and David Lynch (whose idiosyncratic 1984 film of the same name, love it or hate it, is set for a 4K release) found the appeal in adapting Frank Herbert’s touchstone novel, we should be on pins and needles to see what auteu...

‘Kingsman’ Director Matthew Vaughn Making New Spy Movie With Samuel L. Jackson, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Sam Rockwell

Matthew Vaughn has spent the past seven years working in the spy genre directing his Kingsman films, and he seems to be extremely comfortable in that arena. In fact, he doesn’t seem to be interested in leaving it any time soon: a new report says he’s actually developing a new spy movie that has Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World, Black Mirror) in talks to play the lead role and a couple of other high-profile actors circling significant parts.  A New Matthew Vaughn Spy Movie is in the Works...

‘Loki’ Head Writer Explains Alligator Loki: “It’s So Stupid, But It Also Makes Total Sense”

Tom Hiddleston isn’t sure whether Alligator Loki – the alligator wearing golden horns in the latest episode of Marvel’s Disney+ series Loki – is actually an alternate universe version of a Loki, or if it’s just an alligator. “The question is, ‘Is he really Loki? Or is he just green?'” Hiddleston said in a new interview. “It’s such a funny question that [the Lokis] all bicker about. One thing about Loki is that Loki loves to be right. And they all have a different opinion about this alligator.” ...

‘The Tomorrow War’ Wants to Be ‘Independence Day,’ But You, Sir, Are No ‘Independence Day’

I love dumb movies and I can’t get enough of dumb movie moments. You know the ones! They tend to aim big and throw “realism” to the wind, all in favor of delivering heightened emotions amid satisfying thrills. What’s more, I don’t think there should be any shame or stigma attached to that statement. There’s plenty of room in a well-rounded palette for all sorts of films, after all — from highbrow to lowbrow and everything in between. Something as iconic as Jurassic Park, for example, may not be...

‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ is Thinking Lance Reddick is Back

I love it when a plan comes together. As we speak, John Wick 4 is currently filming and casting news keeps trickling in day by day. The latest announcement features Lance Reddick’s return as Charon. According to Deadline, Reddick is confirmed to return as Charon in John Wick: Chapter 4. After starting out as the mysterious hotel clerk for the Continental, the New York-based front for Wick’s assassins guild, Reddick finally got to step out from behind the desk and be a part of the action in t...

‘Gunpowder Milkshake 2’ in Development Ahead of First Film’s Netflix Premiere

Netflix’s upcoming action film Gunpowder Milkshake scored a sequel before the first film has even debuted. With that kind of confidence, coupled with the fantastic cast on board, audiences must be in for a really tasty treat. At Cannes, French mini-major StudioCanal celebrated its 30th anniversary with a special presentation. The Hollywood Reporter shared that StudioCanal is working on a sequel to the action-thriller Gunpowder Milkshake despite the first film not being released on Netflix un...

‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’ Will Draw Inspiration From ‘Terminator 2’ and ’90s Action Flicks

Director Steven Caple Jr. is tackling the next installment in the seasoned Transformers franchise with Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and is drawing inspiration from beloved ’90s action films for peak thrills. The 7th film in the franchise will channel the energetic nostalgia of the ’90s and hopefully ignite as many throwbacks as it does explosions. ComingSoon.net reported that director Steven Caple Jr. is setting Transformers: Rise of the Beasts in the ’90s. Caple stated that he loved how...

‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ Clip Sends Bugs Bunny and LeBron James to the DC Universe

We’re just 10 days away from the release of the long-awaited Space Jam: A New Legacy, and the marketing campaign is settling in for its final lap before the film debuts. Today, Warner Bros. and DC released a new clip from the movie following Bugs Bunny and LeBron James as they travel into “DC World,” one of the many distinct planets found in the Warner 3000 Server-Verse that LeBron’s character gets sucked into. And as you might expect, LeBron is not thrilled about being the alter ego he inhabit...

Why John Ostrander’s ‘Suicide Squad’ Run is Essential Reading Before James Gunn’s Movie [Set Visit]

Writer/director James Gunn‘s long-awaited comic book movie The Suicide Squad debuts one month from today, which gives comic fans plenty of time to brush up on some source material before seeing what Gunn has up his sleeve. One particular stretch of comics you should hone in on is writer John Ostrander‘s 66-issue run from 1987-1992, which helped modernize the team after their initial Silver Age appearance and served as a big creative inspiration for Gunn. Here’s how reading John Ostrander’s Suic...

‘The Tomorrow War’ Ending Explained: The Filmmakers Break Down That Wild Final Act

The Tomorrow War starring Chris Pratt is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video and it’s a very silly, very fun ’90s-style blockbuster. It’s an action/adventure story about time travel, killer aliens from outer space, and familial relationships. You know, the usual. It also has a curveball of an ending! What inspired director Chris McKay and writer Zach Dean to take The Tomorrow War in such a surprising direction? We asked them and found out. And be warned — major spoilers for the film follow. ...

‘The King’s Man’ Special Look: Learn the “Bloody” Origin of the Kingsman

If you forgot there was going to be yet another Kingsman movie, that’s okay – I’m sure many others did as well. The film, a prequel called The King’s Man, has had its release date shuffled multiple times – and not just because of COVID-19. The flick was originally due out in 2019, but is now set to open this holiday season. For those who need the reminder, there’s a new The King’s Man special look below that goes behind the scenes of the upcoming Matthew Vaughn movie.  The King’s Man Special...

‘Masters of the Universe: Revelation’ Trailer: He-Man is Back in Action in Kevin Smith’s Netflix Sequel Series

He still has the power. Fans of the original 1980s cartoon rejoiced when the news first hit that Kevin Smith would be leading a revival for the classic Masters of the Universe show. Picking up right where that story concluded all those years ago, Revelation is set to go all The Force Awakens on us and serve as a bridge for a whole new generation of fans.

‘Crime Story’ Trailer: It’s Richard Dreyfuss’ Turn To Pull A ‘Taken’ On Some Fools

I didn’t know I needed to see Richard Dreyfuss go the Taken route until I watched the newly released trailer for Crime Story. Granted, I’m an easy mark for anything Dreyfuss. Jaws is my all-time favorite movie and the man has delivered dozens of bangers since. Who else can still quote What About Bob? word for word? I bet there’s a lot more of us out there than you might think. Now he’s pulling a Liam Neeson and getting into the schlocky action game and I, for one, am here for it. The unoriginal...

‘Fast and Furious’ Spin-Off Starring Charlize Theron’s Cipher is in Development and Vin Diesel-Approved

On the first day, there was 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, and Vin Diesel saw that it was good. Eighteen years later, The Rock muscled his way into the Fast & Furious limelight and spearheaded Hobbs and Shaw, the first official spin-off of the main franchise. He, too, saw that it was good (critics and audiences, meanwhile, were somewhat more divided). Now, the Fast Family is once again set to expand even more. And this time, it involves Charlize Theron’s villainous Cipher. According to Var...

James Cameron Was High on Ecstasy and Listening to Sting When He Created John Connor

The history behind one of cinema’s best sequels is a wild one. In an oral history of Terminator 2: Judgment Day for The Ringer, director James Cameron, star Arnold Schwarzenegger, and others shared some previously-unheard tidbits about the making of the action classic. Cameron wanted T2 to be his Wizard of Oz There’s a pretty massive tonal difference between Terminator and its sequel. The first film is kind of an action-movie slasher, with Linda Hamilton‘s Sarah Connor serving as a machine...

‘The Tomorrow War’ Review: Chris Pratt Fights for the Future in a Surprisingly Fun Blast From the Past

There’s a brand of cheesy, cornball, slightly trashy sci-fi blockbuster from the ’90s that died with the Clinton years as movies gave way to Bush-era cynicism (and Michael Bay-driven cacophony). You know the type: Independence Day and Volcano, movies that revolved around a misfit band of heroes and which naively believed a divided world could be united by a really good speech from Bill Pullman. Maybe they’re not high art, but they’re high emotion and high stakes — and that’s good enough for a f...

The good news for Los Angeles residents is…they can have both! In a promotion for Amazon’s sci-fi flick, The Tomorrow War, the streaming service has deployed a “real” military convoy carrying a “real” White Spike — one of the murderous aliens that have killed off most of humanity in the Chris Pratt-starring feature.

Helen Mirren Agrees With Vin Diesel: It’s Time For Michael Caine to Join the ‘Fast and Furious’ Series

We can all agree that Michael Caine makes any movie he’s in at least 25% better just by his mere presence, right? He’s just that kind of performer. Whether he’s playing a good guy or a bad guy, if he’s onscreen your eyes are going to be on him. Naturally, that makes him a very sought after actor and it looks like there are plans underway to get him into the Fast and Furious franchise.

Emily Blunt’s ‘Jungle Cruise’ Character is a New Take on the Action-Adventure Movie Damsel [Set Visit]

Disney’s Jungle Cruise has its roots in history, but it’s focused on being a little more female-forward. The movie focuses on two leads, curmudgeonly steamboat captain Frank Wolff (Dwayne Johnson) and scientist Dr. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt). Inspiration for the film comes from both the original Disneyland theme park ride and the 1951 film The African Queen. In both, a tenacious woman hires a cynical man to help her travel down a dangerous river. In The African Queen, they’re running from Germ...

Disney is hoping Jungle Cruise will follow the path of success paved by their theme park-based action adventure franchise Pirates of the Caribbean. Not only do they want it to be a box office banger, but producer Beau Flynn says audiences shouldn’t rule out the possibility of seeing Jungle Cruise sequels, perhaps forming an entire universe of stories that take place within the adventure world being explored by Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. When Jungle Cruise was in production, our own repor...

If you’ve never ridden the Jungle Cruise ride at a Disney theme park, the basic gist is that you board a replica steamboat captained by a trusty skipper who constantly makes puns and tells dad jokes as they narrate your voyage through the “dangerous” waters of the attraction. Now that Pirates of the Caribbean, The Country Bears, Tomorrowland, and The Haunted Mansion have been adapted into live-action feature films, here comes Jungle Cruise, which puts Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt on a riverbo...
