Suicide Squad 2 could start shooting next year says Joel Kinnaman

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Scott Davis

This weekend, Wonder Woman has helped breathe new life in to the Dceu, the expanded cinematic superhero universe created by Warner Bros and DC Comics after a less-than-spectacular start last year. Through its global opening, the Patty Jenkins-directed film grossed over $223million worldwide and is set to top the weekend again come Sunday.

It’s a great result for both the studios given the reactions, both critically and from audiences, to their two previous efforts, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. Both were hits in terms of box office ($872.7million and $745.6million respectively) but there’s some work to do to realign the franchise in the eyes on the fans. WB are still pressing ahead with their films, including Justice League, Aquaman and Batgirl amongst others but one that seems to also be on the radar is a Suicide Squad sequel.

Martha Thomases: Vex & Comics & Rock & Roll

  • Comicmix
Every Monday my Facebook feed is filled with people kvetching about Vinyl, the new HBO series created by Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winters. Every criticism I see is valid (the pace is slow, the characters and the situations in which they find themselves are unbelievable), but I still kind of like it.

If you haven’t watched, you should know that Vinyl is about a record company struggling through the changes in music and culture in the early mid-1970s. I moved to New York full time a few years later, so perhaps some of the reason I like it is that it reminds me of my lost youth.

Bobby Cannavale plays Richie Finestra, the head of the company, a drug addict with no moral code (is that redundant?) who uses people in his pursuit of money and more drugs. We are supposed to believe that his love

LatinoBuzz: Francisco Lorite Receives 2014 Imagen Award Nomination for "Mediation" with Freddy Rodriguez

Award-winning filmmaker Francisco Lorite has received a 2014 “Best Theatrical Short" Imagen Award nomination for his short film entitled “Mediation”. This marks the second time Lorite is nominated for an Imagen - he previously won for his groundbreaking short film “Cuco Gomez Gomez is Dead”.

The Imagen Awards are given annually by the Imagen Foundation to recognize and reward the positive portrayal of Latinos in all media, as well as to honor the achievements of Latinos in the entertainment and communications industries.

The 29th Annual Imagen (Spanish for image) Awards will be presented at a gala black-tie dinner on Friday evening, August 1st, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel International Ballroom.

"Mediation" is the first project released by the brand new Film/TV production company entitled Top Rebel Productions - the brainchild of Francisco Lorite, actor Freddy Rodríguez (“Six Feet Under”, "Night Shift”) and veteran producer Bill Winett.

The short tells the story of a divorce mediation that spirals completely out of control for a husband (Freddy Rodriguez), his soon-to-be ex-wife (Marley Shelton) and their court-appointed mediator (Lola Anthony).

Launched earlier this year, Top Rebel Productions, is not only offering a viable platform for Latin actors to break Hollywood stereotypes, and present characters that are moving beyond the outdated stereotype, but also to tell stories they care about on their own terms while inspiring audiences.

While Freddy Rodriguez is returning to the small screen with the TV series “Night Shift”, which premiered on NBC May 27, Top Rebel marks as well the actor's new business venture and opportunity to increase his presence behind the camera.

The trio immediately went to work shooting "Mediation" - a short film borrowing from the film noire style of the 50s. As the first project released under the Top Rebel Productions marquee, "Mediation" presents and sets the tone for the production company's stable of projects and shows that excellent production can be accomplished with little budget.

The road less traveled has certainly been the path to success for Lorite. Known for his multiple award-winning no-budget short “ Cuco Cuco Gomez is Dead”, Lorite accomplished something few directors have.

Cuco not only screened over 150 times in the U.S. alone, got sold for broadcast and garnered prominent media attention; but it also won five awards --including the prestigious Imagen Award for Best Theatrical Short, "Best Cine Latino" at the DC Film Festival, "Best Edited Short" at the 2005 Manhattan Short Film Festival, and a Special Jury Honor presented by Edward James Olmos at the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival.

Not so bad for a Spaniard who a few years ago packed his bags and moved to New York City with little knowledge of English and just one idea in mind: to write and direct. Lorite admits to teaching himself English, with a little help from a blue pocket-dictionary and "Three's company" reruns, in order to be able to start making a living acting in this country. Similarly, he credits his Vcr for teaching him all he knows about editing, writing, directing and calls Netflix his film grad school!

Bringing a unique passion to his craft and desire to make his mark, Lorite is certainly one talented filmmaker to keep an eye on.

Here is a clip from "Meditation"

Code Name: Geronimo

Stars: Cam Gigandet, Anson Mount, Freddy Rodríguez, Xzibit, Kathleen Robertson, Robert Knepper, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Kenneth Miller, William Fichtner | Written by Kendall Lampkin | Directed by John Stockwell

After the tragic events of 9/11 the world was pushed into the “War on Terror” and we all have our opinions on that. The one thing it started though was the hunt for Osama bin Laden. The public were told how he was being hunted through caves, then years later he was believed to be hiding in Pakistan, we’d be told how he was almost caught once, there seemed to be no proof that he was alive at all. Then came that moment we were told that he was finally dead. The reaction to this was much celebrating, to some it felt over the top but the fact was many people did have a right to celebrate and they did,
