In an almost unprecedented act of genius, Marvel’s long lost, secretly loved but consistently butchered anti-hero The Punisher is finally getting his own ultra-violent spin-off series. And with star of just about every crime/drama movie/series in the last few years Jon Bernthal returning to re-don the skull-soaked tee after his first bow in Daredevil season 2, it feels like the perfect time to revisit all of the temporary Frank Castles that came before him.
Because it seems that Bernthal is actually here to stay, something that can’t be said of any of the hard-nosed actors that leapt into the role before him. In fact, Bernthal’s return to the role is the first time anybody has ever played the character more than once in an official context. Although as you’ll soon see,
The picture thrusts viewers into one of the turning points of World War II, recounting a moment when British forces faced total annihilation at the hands of the Nazis. Shot with Imax cameras and presented in 70mm, it also serves as a potent reminder that some things are best delivered on the widest screens possible. “Dunkirk” not only garnered massive critical acclaim, but audiences around the globe flocked to see the film, which grossed $524 million worldwide.
“At a time when there’s all kinds of storytelling around, movies that gravitate toward things that only movies can do carve out a place for themselves
For a few years, James Franco was everywhere: Hosting the Oscars. Getting college degrees. Teaching college courses. Directing movies. Acting in movies. Writing about movies. Making art. Writing novels. Starting a band. Every now and then, he would penetrate the mainstream, with commercial releases like “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and “The Interview.” By and large, however, the affable face from “Freaks and Geeks,” Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” movies, and “127 Hrs” had grown so ubiquitous it had become difficult to discern the big picture.
Directed by Matt Reeves.
Starring Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Amiah Miller, Judy Greer, Karin Konoval, Terry Notary, Michael Adamthwaite, Gabriel Chavarria, Max Lloyd-Jones, Sara Canning, Aleks Paunovic, and Chad Rook.
The new Planet of the Apes reboot or prequel series, whatever you want to call it, comes to a conclusion with War for the Planet of the Apes, now out on a Blu-ray + DVD + digital copy set. While the film fell a bit short for me, I found the supplements worth a spin, and I appreciated director Matt Reeves’ thoughtful discussion of his approach to the movie.
Before Star Wars came along, the two primary franchises that captured my little-kid imagination in the early 70s were Star Trek and Planet of the Apes. However, being born in 1970 meant that I had to experience the former through reruns and the latter
"Yes, I am playing teenage Groot. I'm having a blast with it. It's really, really fun. I can't say too much about him, but he's coming of age, so you'll see the teenager find a mentor to look up to and to model himself after. The character's great,
Marcus Alqueres (“The Flying Man”) will direct “Snowblind.” The film is developed by the Coalition Group’s Johnny Wunder and Luisa Iskin, who join Traveling Picture Show Company’s Carissa Buffel, Kevin Matusow, and Steve Prince in producing the film under their newly formed alliance, and alongside Ground Control’s Scott Glassgold.
13 Films will introduce the pic to international buyers at the American Film Market, which opens on Nov. 1. UTA is representing the U.S. rights.
Hank Woon adapted the script from Don Roff’s novel of the same name. “Snowblind” follows the story of a U.S. Ranger haunted by painful memories of a family tragedy, who becomes stranded with his platoon in a remote chalet in the woods. As they fight for survival and against their own inner demons, they are torn apart by a discovery they make — a box filled with $5 million

78/52 (Alexandre Philippe)
There’s been documentaries that analyze entire cinematic movements, directors, actors, writers, specific films, and more aspects of filmmaking, but it’s rare to see a feature film devoted to a single scene. With 78/52, if the clunky title addition didn’t tell you already, it explores the infamous shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho with exacting precision and depth. Featuring interviews with Jamie Lee Curtis, Guillermo del Toro,
It was reported just a few days ago that Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski was in talks for Gambit with the studio potentially eyeing Daniel Craig for the role of the villain Mister Sinister. Gambit was previously set to be directed Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow), but they both left the project due to “creative differences”.
While the plot is unknown, Gambit has been described as “the Ocean’s 11 of the comic book
Channing Tatum more or less willed the Gambit movie into existence, given his desire to play the card-throwing, Cajun mutant on the big screen. However, the project has hit a few snags over the years. Originally, Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) was supposed to direct the movie, but he walked away in 2015. Then, Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) spent some time developing the movie,
Should Verbinski sign on to the project, he would become its third director after Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow), both of whom left the director’s chair due to creative differences with Fox.
The script for Gambit has been penned by Josh Zetumer, while Channing Tatum is attached to star in the lead role of the car-throwing Cajun mutant Remy LeBeau, and will also produce with Reid Carolin of Free Association. Tatum has also recently revealed that they decided to retool the project following the success of Deadpool and Logan.
Meanwhile, last month we got an alleged plot breakdown for Gambit,
Bad Moon Rising – A wild smash up of The Wolfman and Sons of Anarchy from writer/producer Scott Rosenberg (Con Air, Gone in 60 Seconds, Jumanji 2, Welcome to the Jungle, and the CBS series Zoo).
ExMortis – An epic WWII action adventure from the minds of Paul + Pete Williams, VFX gurus behind Avatar, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and Chronicles of Narnia.
Humbug – A masterly plotted merry and manic mash-up of Sherlock Holmes and Ghostbusters from A.J. Gentile, the writers and creators of Micronauts and Visionaries.
Nvrlnd – From the creative minds of the writing team, Stephanie Salyers and
Gore Verbinski, the director behind the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films, is in talks to helm the Channing Tatum starrer.
The move kick-starts the stalled project that has seen Doug Liman and Rupert Wyatt come and go as helmers on the long-in-development X-Men spinoff. Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) exited in October 2015, while Liman (American Made) left in August 2016.
Tatum is attached to star in the pic as the New Orleans-based mutant with the power to manipulate kinetic energy and whose weapons...
After shattering numerous domestic records in its opening weekend—including those for the top horror film opening and biggest September opening for any film—”It” is still going strong.
Internationally, “It” has terrified a growing global audience as the film continues to roll out to record-breaking results in overseas markets. Among the records the film has broken, “It” scored the biggest opening weekend ever for a horror film in more than 30 territories, including the UK, Russia, Brazil, Mexico and Australia. In 17 of those territories,
During the San Diego Comic-Con, Tatum revealed that he is still attached to the film, but they have decided to retool their approach following the success of Deadpool and Logan. And now the folks at Splash Report claim to have the inside scoop on the plot for the film, which they describe as “the Ocean’s 11 of the comic book genre”.
