Riddick Review. Riddick Is B-movie Fare That Might Entertain, If You Can Get Over The Cheese.

Riddick Review By: MattInRC
Director and Co-Writer David Twohy and Actor Vin Diesel bring another Riddick to the big screen that's not good enough for the Summer and too cheesy for even the Winter. Continuing after the titular character's apparent death in Chronicles, our story picks up with the hunted outcast trying to heal up while evading every manner of angry animal and alien. On this planet, referred to as 'Not Furya' (Riddick's home planet and the reason for his initial resignation from the Necromongers), the sun is hot and the wind penetrating, which is just how Riddick likes it. Soon, he's fashioning bone weapons, eating slimey rations from an abandoned rest station, and training a CGI dog with zebra stripes. But his past is about to catch up, as two teams of mercenaries descend to return him headless to Vaako (Karl Urban) and his people.


One group of mercs - led by the professional Johns (Matt Nable) - has ulterior motives to the mission, while th…

Tom Hiddleston To Star In Crimson Peak

Tom Hiddleston is replacing Benedict Cumberbatch in Crimson Peak, a gothic film to be directed by Guillermo del Toro.

The thriller, which will also feature Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam, has set a start date of January 2014 to begin shooting.

Legendary, which covered 75 percent of the budget for del Toro's Pacific Rim, will produce and provide financing, while Universal Pictures will have the option to come on board as a finance partner at a later date.

Cumberbatch exited Crimson Peak in late August. There wasn't a reason given for the departure at the time, although sources told THR that it wasn't due to a conflict with another project.

Hiddleston, who played Loki in The Avengers, is set to appear in November's Marvel sequel Thor: The Dark World. The actor was also cast in Muppets Most Wanted, which has set a March 2014 release date.

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN DVD Review

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN DVD Review By: MattInRC
The Die Hard/Air Force One action thriller OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN is fun, exciting fare.


I've always considered Gerard Butler to be one of the least utilized actors in Hollywood. Best known as Leonidas in the amazing visual feast known as 300, Butler's phyique and stage presence instantly won over fans who worshipped him as a bonified action star. He was even considered for the role of James Bond before Daniel Craig was ultimately given the keys to the Aston Martin. Then, something happened: Butler began showing up in RomComs and other lesser action titles, of which none suited or matched his talents. When your film diet consists of Playing for Keeps and The Ugly Truth, one might start to think you're the victim of a cruel joke. Luckily, someone saw the action hero in Butler, and OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN represents the perfect return to the place where he should have been all along.


Butler plays Mike Banning, a Secret Service agent who w…

Here is the first trailer for ROBOCOP movie starring Joel Kinnaman in the title role, with Gary Oldman as Dr. Dennett Norton, Michael Keaton as Raymond Sellars, Samuel L. Jackson as Pat Novak, Abbie Cornish as Clara Murphy, and Jackie Earle Haley as Maddox

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is sti…

The long-in-the-works movie version of 1980s TV series The Fall Guy is coming together once again, this time as a vehicle for Dwayne Johnson.

Johnson is in negotiations to star in a big-screen remake that McG is in talks to direct. Ashok Amritraj's
Amritraj is producing alongside Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, who have held the rights to the property for years. WWE's Michael Luisi also is producing, while McG is also in talks to produce. The film is being presented to buyers at the Toronto Film Festival.

Fall Guy was an ABC series that ran from 1981 to 1986 and starred as Lee Majors as a Hollywood stunt man who supplemented his income by doing bounty hunter work. He was joined on his escapades, which usually involved him transferring a stunt from a movie to the job at hand, by his sidekick cousin (Douglas Barr) and a fetching female stunt actress played by Heather Thomas.

Benedict Cumberbatch Joins Lost City Of Z

Here’s a testament that good projects sometimes rise above development hell. Benedict Cumberbatch, who figures to be a big man on campus at the Toronto Film Festival with 12 Years A Slave, The Fifth Estate and August: Osage County getting big premieres, is negotiating to star in Lost City Of Z, which James Gray will direct from a script he adapted. Panorama Media will finance the film and handle foreign sales.

The film is based on the David Grann bestselling book. Cumberbatch is in talks to play Percy Fawcett, who in 1925 headed into the depths of the Amazon jungles in Brazil. Fawcett was there to map the jungle and, hobbled by malaria, he discovered a mythical city he called The Lost City Of Z. Scorned by peers who claimed that this ancient kingdom was a fraud, Fawcett headed back into the jungle with his son and one other, braving the dangers of disease, insects, snakes, poison darts and other hazards to reinforce his discovery. None of them were ever seen again and it remains one o…

Mad Max: Fury Road Heads For Re-Shoots

After multiple delays caused mostly by weather, George Miller finally got the cameras cranking last year and spent six months shooting Mad Max: Fury Road. But even though he wrapped in December, there has still been no release of pictures, trailers or anything much else from the film. Now we know one reason why: it’s still not quite finished, with Miller planning to reunite the cast for three weeks of additional shooting in Australia this November.

Of course, talk of new shooting always sends warning flares up about troubled productions, and indeed more filming (especially after such a lengthy shoot) adds fuel to that fire. But additional shots have become de rigueur these days for bigger films, and this may have been part of the plan all along. Still, this is one film that, like World War Z, could definitely do without the added negativity surrounding the idea.

While the further delay before getting started on the new material seems odd, don’t forget that the cast includes Tom Hardy…

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Teaser Poster

Today it's been announced that the movie (thanks to a poster up at Yahoo) will be called Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

The title and the sandy design for the poster seem to point towards the Dinobots’ presence, which further confirms what set spies have been reporting.

We also know that Wahlberg is a struggling inventor and single father to Tessa (Nicola Peltz) who in turn is dating race car driver Shane (Jack Reynor). Kelsey Grammer plays bad guy Harold Attinger, with Sophia Myles, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Bingbing Li, Victoria Summer and Geng Han all aboard.

In related Transformers news, the film’s Chinese outreach – including location work done in China itself – has continued apace via the Transformers 4 Chinese Actors Talent Search Reality Show (which really should have been called So You Think You Can Run Away From Giant Living Machines or, more simply, Optimus Idol) locking down Byron Li, Austin Lin, Candice Zhao and Teresa Daley for very small roles.
