Movie Review: Unfriended: Dark Web 'Predictable and generic'

Underworld TV Series In The Works

After 14 years of either directing or producing the Underworld movies, you might think Len Wiseman would be ready to move on from the universe where vampires battle werewolves and their own internal struggles. Wrongo! He's planning to bring the idea to the small screen.

The movies, of course, saw Kate Beckinsale squeeze into a variety of seemingly uncomfortable rubber suits and run around shooting/fighting like a badass as Selene, a vampire who works as a Death Dealer. She started off by killing the lycans who allegedly slaughtered her family, but things got more complicated when she fell for a man who showed lycan traits. According to Wiseman, the show's tone will be very different – and he's hoping to place it with a premium cable channel stateside or one of the streaming services to allow for the changes. "The series will be a pretty big departure from the films," Wiseman tells Deadline. "I don’t want to say it’s more adult, but it’s definitely less comic book in its tone and character."

Wiseman, who has been active on TV in the last few years, will be a producer on this one. And he also revealed to the site that he's still attached to the Die Hard prequel that has been in the works – or threatened – for a while now. According to him, it's now at the casting stage for the film about John McClane's years in the NYPD. "The right casting for this role is crucial," said Wiseman. "Those bare feet have some very big shoes to fill."

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…

Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
