The Expendables 3 Leaked Online. Will This Effect Their Box Office Results?

Lionsgate is taking legal action against the anonymous individuals who shared online an advance copy of The Expendables 3 , starring Sylvester Stallone . The film company filed a lawsuit in California federal court against "John Does 1-10." Lionsgate reports learning on July 24 that a digital file containing a high-quality reproduction of the film had been stolen and uploaded to the Internet. The Expendables 3 has reportedly crossed more than a million downloads already. All of the copies circulating online are said in the lawsuit to be traced to the original stolen digital file. The lawsuit targets the operators behind,,,, and and uses language that's similar to past mass "Doe" complaints against torrent users. According to the lawsuit, "By downloading one of these 'torrent' files associated with the Stolen Film from , users join a 'swarm' where

#KingConan With Schwarzenegger To Shoot In Spring 2015

Question: What is best in life? If you answered: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women, then you are probably one of the rabid fans of Conan the Barbarian. And, not just Conan, but Arnold Schwarzenegger as Conan the Barbarian. Our buddies over at the  sat down with Fredrick Malmberg the producer behind the abomination that was 2011′s Conan the Barbarian starring Jason Momoa . The producer had some very interesting and exciting news about The Legend Of    Conan , a movie project that many thought had been shelved. “We want to polish up the script, specifically about the characters, but we don’t think it will take long. We’ll probably have this turned in around September after the holiday and then we’ll take it to the studio and if they’re happy, we can hopefully start (production) in the Spring (2015).” Which means that we could see Arnold as the old, grizzled King Conan as soon as 2016. Malmberg was also

Do You Care For Another Kick-Ass Movie?

Mark Millar , whose comic books were the basis for this franchise is uncertain about the possibility of the third installment.. “With “ Kick-Ass ,” it was a no brainer. It was made for $28 million and made $100 million back and then made another $140 million on DVD. So for the money guys, it was a $28 million investment that made $240 million. That’s a slam dunk. You’re getting your sequel. The second one didn’t make as much. It cost a little less at around $24 million, made $61 million and made about $100 million again on DVD and TV rights. It was still profitable. It was by no means “ The Lone Ranger .” But does that mean we’ll make another one again? I don’t know. It’s definitely up in the air, and we’ll just have to see. Matthew is a guy who I trust to make that decision. If he decides he does want to do it, I know he’ll get it done well. And he’s got the movie rights, so it’s ultimately his decision. I speak to Matthew every day, and we haven’t discussed “Kick-Ass 3″ so who kn

TV Review: @TyrantFX “Preventative Medicine”

TV Review: Tyrant “Preventative Medicine” By: Brandon Wolfe After a few episodes attempting, and failing, to craft riveting television out of political intrigue, ‘Tyrant’ moves to that most tried-and-true method of grabbing viewers: murder. Truth be told, it mostly helps. “Preventative Medicine” holds our interest more than episodes of this series generally have. The introduction of juicier stakes for the characters, actions and decisions of more immediate interest to the viewing audience than the legacy-building and political chess games the show usually feeds us, gives ‘Tyrant’ a bit of kick in the seat. We are far from out of the woods here, but a watchable ‘Tyrant’ is certainly progress. Jamal’s impromptu assault on Sheik Rashid in the men’s room has mostly gone in his favor. The doctors find no evidence of foul play and conclude that the sheik’s physical ailment is the culprit behind his nasty head trauma, while the security footage is doctored to remove Jamal’s presence

Eli Roth's "The Green Inferno" Pulled From Release Date

The trailers and stills have been trickling online; the festival screenings have been going well, and there's even a smartphone game. But in a surprise move, Eli Roth's cannibal holocaust The Green Inferno has suddenly been pulled from the schedules in the US, where it was due for a wide release on September 5. A bit of notoriety never hurt any horror film in the long run, but sadly The Green Inferno's woes are nothing to do with its grisly content. The boringly prosaic reasons for the film's - presumably temporary - canning have to do with internal ructions at the financiers Worldview Entertainment. According to Deadline , Worldview's new CEO Molly Conners has baulked at some of the financial commitments made by her outgoing predecessor Christopher Woodrow, among which was a hefty publicity and advertising spend for Roth's jungle opus. Behind-the-scenes talks are ongoing with current distributor Open Road to try to rectify the situation, but whether a th

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Review: Uninspiring Pap Courtesy of Michael Bay

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is uninspiring pap targeted to a much younger people. And that's too bad. WARNING: spoilers ahead For someone who was just a little too old to buy into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when they arrived in the 1990's, I found myself wondering if the newest incarnation would somehow appeal to me. Having never aligned myself with any particular Turtles camp, I could easily see another franchise being added to my 'To-Do List.' Then I read the credits, and three words fill me with dread: Producer. Michael. Bay. Victims of a lab experiment gone wrong (or right?), four box turtles have morphed into six-foot muscle-bound ninjas, aided by their father and lab victim Splinter (voiced by Tony Shalhoub), who keeps them hidden from the public in the sewers under New York City. Michelangelo (Johnny Knoxville), Donatello (Jeremy Howard), Rafael (Alan Ritchson), and Leonardo (Pete Ploszek) are young and impetuous youths whose desire for comba

Into the Storm Review: It's a Disaster

Into the Storm is Pseudo-Science and terrible acting run amok. With Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy proving that our Earth in the throws of something environmentally dire, one would think a disaster picture like Into the Storm would tackle this sensitive subject with more grace. Not so: it's filled with enough silly pseudo-science and poor acting to fill the eye of a tornado and is one of the worst films of the year. As tornadoes batter the Midwest, storm chaser Pete (Matt Walsh) has experienced an uneventful year filled with frustrating misses courtesy of his green team members. Among them is the meteorologist Allison (Sarah Wayne Callies), whose constant miscalculations have prevented Pete from experiencing glory and a large payout for that perfect shot inside the storm. But soon they'll get their chance, as a series of massive storms invade the town of Silverton, eventually forming the destructive weather event F5, with winds of over 300 mph. As Silverton'

Batman v. Superman Moves Release Date

At the same time, Warner Bros. dates no fewer than nine untitled DC Comics titles all the way through June 2020. In order to avoid a direct confrontation with Captain America 3 , Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is moving up from May 6, 2016, to March 25, the beginning of Easter weekend. Batman v. Superman , which stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill , was widely expected to move, since Marvel Studios and Disney had claimed the May 2016 weekend first. Warner Bros. and DC Comics announced the new date Wednesday alongside dates for nine untitled DC Comics titles through June 2020. That means two superhero movies a year from Warner Bros., beginning in 2016. With the move, Warners and DC are essentially declaring war on Marvel and Disney, which have been the most prolific suppliers of superhero titles. The new dates announced by Warners are Aug. 8, 2016; June 23, 2017; Nov. 17, 2017; March 23, 2018; July 27, 2018; April 5, 2019; June 14, 2019; April 3, 2020; an

Terminator 'Genisys' Is the Title For The New Terminator Film

For months now we have been calling the in-production new Terminator film 'Genesis' . Well, it turns out that we were all a little wrong. It will in fact be called ' Genisys ', as confirmed by an Instagram from Arnold Schwarzenegger 's personal account . We can only hope and assume that this title has some sort of meaning beyond being a funky spelling of an actual word. Perhaps there's a reference, in that "sys" suffix, to Cyberdyne Systems. Does the "gen" refer to generations? Or genes? After all, some people must have been used as the models for the Terminators in the first place, so maybe it's about their genes. We're hoping, in any case, that it's more than simply an attempt to be down with the cool kids by showing a flagrant disregard for the normal rules of English spelling. In any case, the cast and crew of the film are extremely promising. In addition to Schwarzenegger himself, the film stars Jason Clarke as John Con
