‘The Raid’ Remake is Still Happening and Joe Carnahan Shares New Plot Details

When the scrappy Indonesian martial arts thriller The Raid: Redemption became an instant action classic in 2011, it seemed inevitable that a Hollywood remake would be on its way. Lo and behold, Frank Grillo soon signed on to star in The Raid remake, and director Joe Carnahan signed on three years later. But that was in 2017, and since then, we’ve heard nary a peep about The Raid remake. But don’t worry, Carnahan is here to assure us that The Raid remake is still happening, in a new interview wh...

Frank Ocean Has Turned Into a Boring, Pretentious Recluse, Just Like Lauryn Hill

Frank Ocean, the once red-hot R&B rising star of 2011-2012, has pretty much been a rebel without a cause ever since the release of his debut album, Channel Orange.Like Lauryn Hill, this debut album was lauded as an instant classic and it cemented Frank’s rising star. This was after a man who was co-writing for Beyoncé and collaborating with Jay Z and Kanye West.But after the success of his debut, Frank became quiet, isolated and reclusive. He separated himself from the ragtag collective, Odd Fut...

Spooks crack Frank Sidebottom's code

Frank Sidebottom was a peculiar stage character defined by his enormous papier-mache mask, immortalized in countless UK TV appearances and a fictionalized biopic produced after the 2010 death of creator-performer Chris Sievey (previously at Boing Boing). Sievey included fascinating codes with Frank's promotional material, and British intelligence officers finally cracked it. It was hard to crack because half the characters were nulls. "By letting his kids add nonsense into the message, it delibe...

'This is a bit of a Swiss Army knife': Ad giant Publicis is buying Epsilon for $4.4 billion as it looks to get ahead of its rivals in the data wars

Publicis Group has entered into an agreement to acquire Alliance Data's Epsilon and Conversant to help advertisers manage and use first-party data. Consultants and analysts said that the move is the latest example of agencies beefing up data capabilities, similar to Interpublic Group's $2.3 billion acquisition of Acxiom Marketing Services last year. They cautioned that such big acquisitions can be hard for holding companies to integrate into a network of agencies, and it's not clear how Public...

‘Hollow Man II’ Exists, But Is It Worth Seeing This Invisible Man?

(Welcome to DTV Descent, a series that explores the weird and wild world of direct-to-video sequels to theatrically released movies. In this edition, we take a look at a killer who can’t be seen. Because he’s sneaky. And invisible.) Universal’s The Invisible Man (1933) remains a classic, but unlike the other “monsters” in the studio’s collection, the poor guy never got an official attempt at a reboot. (A new one was finally announced earlier this year from director Leigh Whannell, though.) We i...

Court Ruling Implies That Barr Must Redact Grand-Jury Info from Mueller Report

In disclosing the Mueller report, Attorney General William P. Barr will have to redact grand-jury information. That is the upshot of the ruling today by a divided panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.I flagged this case, now called McKeever v. Barr (formerly McKeever v. Sessions), last week. It did not arise out of the Mueller investigation, but it obviously has significant ramifications for the Mueller report -- in particular, how much of it we will get to see.At issue was th...

On Adam Savage's Tested: "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" and the Voyager Golden Record

In 1979, the USS Enterprise flew onto the big screen in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Without giving away too much of the plot, NASA's Voyager probes, launched in 1977, featured prominently in the film. Of course, the Voyager probes carry the Voyager Golden Record, the iconic message for extraterrestrials that my friends Timothy Daly, Lawrence Azerrad, and I released on vinyl for the first time as a lavish box set. While the Voyager Record isn't mentioned in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, I w...

Salvador Dalí & the Marx Brothers’ 1930s Film Script Gets Released as a Graphic Novel

History remembers Salvador Dalí as one of the most individualistic artists ever to live, but he also had a knack for collaboration: with Luis Buñuel, Alfred Hitchcock, Walt Disney, even, in a sense, with Lewis Carroll and William Shakespeare. But would you believe the list also includes one of the Marx Brothers? Though the film on which they collaborated in the 1930s never entered production, its story has been told by Giraffes on Horseback Salad, a hybrid of illustrated text and graphic novel ...

Opinion analysis: Justices sidestep decision on propriety of “cy pres” class-action settlements

This morning the justices issued a per curiam opinion vacating the decision of the lower court in Frank v. Gaos. They had granted review in that case to consider the propriety of so-called “cy pres” settlements – settlements of class actions that distribute all or a part of the monetary relief to public-interest or charitable recipients instead of the named plaintiffs. In this case, for example, the lower courts awarded $8.5 million in monetary relief in a suit brought by plaintiffs alleging tha...

Granada Hills baseball honors coach’s grandfather by reenacting 50-year old photo

Top 5 Alternative Romance Movies

Top 5 Alternative Romance Movies What is an “alternative romance movie”? We’re talking about films that grab you by the heart and then rip it out. They don’t necessarily have a “happy ending” and they weren’t based on Nicholas Sparks’s novels. These are the movies that simultaneously show the beauty and the ugliness of love. They show how love can inspire you, challenge you and leave you dancing, but they also show how love can leave you screaming into a pillow or crying in the shower. These ...
