Reese Witherspoon To Star In Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus

Bryan Buckley returns to features on the Reese Witherspoon vehicle Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus at Lionsgate Summit. The film is based on the John Gray self-help title, a guide to relationships and marriage that is the best selling non-fiction hardcover book of all-time (excepting the Bible and Koran) with over 7 million copies in circulation. Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont have written the script and Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun are set to produce with Andrew Mittman co-producing and Meredith Milton overseeing for Summit. Plan is to shoot the film in January.

While Buckley has stuck mostly to commercials, you’ve likely seen his work. Called “King of the Super Bowl,” he has directed over 40 spots for the annual NFL title game. In the process, he has won 37 Cannes Lions, and gotten 6 Emmy nominations. He’s directed everything from the recent Siri campaigns for the Apple iPhone to the American Express spots with Ellen DeGeneres and Conan O’Brien, and the baseball rivalry camp…

The Prototype Trailer From The Bandito Brothers

The first teaser trailer for the new sci-fi action flick The Prototype has been released—showing off a humanoid cyborg you do not want to mess with. So what happens when it goes rogue?

The film, from Act of Valor creators the Bandito Brothers, follows a humanoid combat drone that gets loose, and the manhunt that ensues. Plus, there appear to be some conspiratorial undertones to boot.

The effects look stellar, and the heads-up display (HUD) for the robot looks awesome.

The film stars Neal McDonough (Captain America), Joseph Mawle (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and Anna Anissimova.

Charlie Sheen Is The President In Machete Kills

His father is still considered among the best – if not the best – fictional US Presidents ever seen, which we guess in a weird, meta sense is why Charlie Sheen has been cast as the leader of the free world. The person responsible for this irresponsible act? Robert Rodriguez, who has added Sheen to Machete Kills.

Hitting Twitter to break the news (which was then picked up by Collider), Rodriguez wrote,

 “I just cast Charlie Sheen in Machete Kills as the President of the United States! Who better? More soon…” along with a picture of himself with Sheen.
Which just goes to show that there's no such thing as unemployable in Hollywood if you're sufficiently high-profile (see also: Mel Gibson, who is among the Machete sequel’s cast). We don’t yet know what Sheen will be getting up to as El Prez, but you’ve got to figure Rodriguez has something batshit insane in mind, especially given what tends to happen to people who come into contact with Machete.

Full Trailer For DREDD. Judgement Is Coming!

Machinma delivers the first full trailer for DREDD. The cast consists of Karl Urban as Judge Dredd and Olivia Thirlby as Judge Anderson. Dredd is due to be released on 21 September 2012


Dredd takes place on a fictional Earth created as a result of the Atomic Wars. Survivors of this period are living in Mega-Cities, which protects its citizens from the Cursed Earth, a radioactive desert environment populated by mutants. The main story takes place in Mega-City One, where the police who are now called judges have the power to use police brutality to some extent to fight extreme murders. One man, Judge Dredd (Karl Urban), a senior law enforcement officer, teams up with a cadet called Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) to track down a terrorist organization lead by Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), who is responsible for selling a reality-altering drug called Slo-Mo.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER Review By: MattINRC

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER Review By: MattINRC

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER is a wickedly-fun, over-the-top vampire slashfest that requires total suspension of disbelief.


The world of historical fiction has been the subject of many classic novels, which use real historical time periods but fictional characters and situations to tell its story. In those worlds, reality is skewed just enough to make its existence in the real timeline plausible. Novels like Horatio Hornblower, I Claudius, and Patrick O'Brien'sMaster and Commander series were all eventually made into movies that experienced varying levels of success. But the movie ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER is different, existing in a highly-stylized world of ultra-violence and slow-motion edits, but told from the perspective of an actual historical figure. Taken from the novel by author Seth Grahame-Smith (who also wrote the screenplay), Hunter is historical fiction on steroids, requiring total suspension of disb…

BRAVE Review By: MattINRC

BRAVE Review By: MattINRC
BRAVE is a visual delight that misses at too many key points and doesn't take enough chances.


If there's one studio that's absolutely dominated in the past 15 years, it's Pixar. From their 1995 classic Toy Story to the equally heart-warming Up, the company has taken animation to new levels, pulling gems and instant classics with amazing consistency. While animation is their acumen, their key has always been in strong storytelling: who would have thought that toys, cars, rats, fish, and monsters would have such wide-ranging appeal. It's Pixar singular ability to breathe real emotions into their animated characters that makes everything they touch turn to box office cash. Well, almost everything: that road has recently been pitted with a few critical disappointments: Cars 2 was unappealing and Toy Story 3 was downright creepy (toys holding hands in the fiery hell of a compactor is weird). With the release of BRAVE, the animation juggernau…

Taken 2 Trailer. Now They Are After Him

While he was understandably miffed that slave traders kidnapped his daughter back in 2008’s Taken, Liam Neeson is now learning that his violent, stabby / shooty reaction had consequences. Here comes the trailer for Taken 2, which finds the heroic Bryan Mills in a spot of trouble thanks to Rade Serbedzija’s Murad and his need for revenge.

After a pleasant surprise visit from daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) and wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) in Istanbul, Bryan gets a less enjoyable shock when Lenore is targeted and he’s threatened. Guess what he’s going to do? Go on, we bet you can’t figure out that he’s going to use his particular set of skills to try to save his family (and himself) once more.

LOCKOUT Interview Part 2 With Maggie Grace-

Olivier Megaton takes over the directing chores this time around and delivers almost exactly what you’d expect based on this footage. We know Neeson can deliver the action goods, so the only real question is, will this live up to the original?

Watch the trail…
