‘Power Rangers’ Reboot Coming In 2016!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 13th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

mighty-morphin-power-rangers-power-rangers-movie-everything-you-know-so-far

 

Kids become infatuated with shows and films that parents, most of the time, wish they hadn’t introduced their kids to in the first place. What begins as a small escape from the incessant need to be entertained, soon turns into an obsession that takes over every facet of their waking time. Remind anyone else of ‘Frozen‘? Before Anna and Elsa took kids by storm was another adventure-filled show. ‘The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ was one of those shows I could never get into. I had no desire to do so when I was younger and when my kids discovered them through Netflix, I began to cringe at the thought of being in the same room with them as they binge-watched their newest obsession. Looks like their interest in the Power Rangers is going to go into high gear again with the latest news release.

Enjoy this Video from ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 25th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Mockingjay

Lionsgate sure has a handle on how to market their films and their new teaser trailer for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1‘ is no different. Instead of the usual 30 second trailer that is filled with mostly text or footage from previous movies, we have a 1 minute and 12 second video from President Snow (Donald Sutherland) from the Capitol, spewing some evil propaganda. It seems straightforward, but as the camera pulls back from President Snow, someone is revealed, and it just got me all excited for this sequel. Fans will be screaming! Enjoy the short teaser trailer. The film opens November 21st, 2014, so we have a while.

Hello Jana here,

Exists

SXSW (South By Southwest) is an annual multi-media festival held in Austin, Texas. It’s the perfect place for distributors to scoop up new material. This is what happened after a Saturday night, sold-out, premiere of ‘Exists‘. Lionsgate bought up the rights quickly after screening and seeing the viewers light up Twitter talking about the film.

Are you a Betty, Joan or a Peggy? How about a Don, Pete or a Roger? These names will have more in common with names like Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross. Once the final season of ‘Mad Men‘ is behind us, we will all have to grieve over our lost favorites just as we did when hits like ‘Friends‘, ‘Seinfeld‘ and ‘M*A*S*H‘ finished their successful runs. Luckily, we’re going to be let down easy. AMC announced today that the final season of the Lionsgate series ‘Mad Men‘ will be expanded to 14 episodes and equally portioned with seven episodes airing in spring of 2014 (“The Beginning”) and the final seven episodes of this iconic series (“The End of an Era”) airing in the spring of 2015.

‘Expendables 3’ Is Coming to a Theater Near You!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 4th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

the_expendables_2-wide

If two films weren’t enough, there will be a third movie to laugh at. That’s right, ‘The Expendables 3‘ has a release date of August 15, 2014, which Lionsgate is proud to get behind. And why shouldn’t they be proud, the first two made over $575 million worldwide, which is the biggest franchise for Millennium Films. This time around, Patrick Hughes will be in the director’s chair, which his only feature credit is for a movie called ‘Red Hill‘, so she has his work cut out for him.

This is pretty huge news.  Not in a long time have two big name actors decided to team up for a tv series for a network channel.  Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer are looking to develop and star in a new comedy project for Lionsgate.  The meetings started before Thanksgiving and we hear that both Lawrence and Grammer have amazing chemistry.  I’d buy that since Lawrence had such great chemistry with another tall white guy, Tim Robbins in ‘Nothing to Lose‘.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Good news for your Tarantino fans out there.  Actually, I don’t know whether to be happy or angry about this.  Lionsgate and Miramax are releasing a big Tarantino movie set on bluray on November 20th.  It will contain 8 films and two bonus discs.  This kind of sucks, because I imagine most of us already own all of these on bluray already individually.  Now we have to purchase all of these again.  And, why are the ‘Kill Bill’ films not in one film like we have been promised for years now.  I will admit, the artwork is cool from MondoTees, but I can’t justify purchasing this, for two extra bonus discs.  These look to be the same blurays that we already have.  And why did they not wait till next year to release this, so they could include ‘Django Unchained’?    Official press release below.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Jason Blum and his Blumhouse production company have jumped into the Haunted House business.  Blumhouse Productions was the company that got behind the ‘Paranormal Activity’ films.  “Visitors will tour the twisting corridors of an eerily haunted theater whose stage was home to one of the world’s most deranged, dark art magicians during the heyday of 1920s vaudeville. That is, until one tragic performance when his assistant climbed into a magical box and vanished forever. The theater was shut down instantly and permanently closed to the public … until now.”  Sounds cool, but not as cool as Eli Roth’s Goretorium.  Press release below.

Amazon’s Prime Streaming Service just got a hell of a lot better.  It will be giving Netflix a run for its money.  EPIX signed a deal with Amazon that more than doubles Amazon’s streaming film catalogue.  This comes shortly after EPIX’s contract with Netflix expired.  Now films from Paramount, MGM, and Lionsgate will be available on Amazon’s Streaming service.  “We think customers will really enjoy watching new titles like The AvengersIron Man 2 and The Hunger Games on their Kindle Fire, PlayStation 3, Xbox, iPad or any of the other of the Amazon Instant Video compatible devices,” says Amazon VP Bill Carr. Epix CEO Mark Greenberg calls the deal “a great line extension” for Amazon.  Read the official press release below.

It’s been over 40 years since the original ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ by Tobe Hooper.  Well, in January, we are returning to Texas with an all new film called ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’.  Lionsgate has unveiled a very cool poster of the new film, which seems to feature all the Letherface masks from the films.  I’m a sucker for these films. John Dugan, Marilyn Burns, Bill Mosely, and Gunnar Hansen will all be in the new film.  How cool is that?  Greg Nicotero will be doing the makeup FX, making this top notch.

Okay, let me get this straight.  A 90’s horror film called ‘Leprechaun’ starring Warwick Davis and a young Jennifer Aniston is getting remade by the WWE?  WWE meaning World Wrestling Entertainment?  The same place that gave us Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock?  From way out of left field, this is absolutely correct.  So, yes, this is happening.  Let’s not forget we have several ‘Leprechaun’ films already in the library including: ‘Leprechaun in the Hood’ and ‘Leprechaun: Innnnn Spaaaaaace’!!! I can’t make this stuff up.  And just in time for St. Paddy’s Day.

Bryan Reviews ‘Nurse Jackie’ Season 3 Bluray!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

The 3rd season of Showtime’s ‘Nurse Jackie’ is here.  And starting in April, the 4th season will start.  I can’t believe it’s been 3-4 years that this show has been on.  Kudos to ‘Nurse Jackie’.  This bluray is top notch.  Showtime really struck gold with Edie Falco as Jackie. She is tremendous in this role.  Even better than her Sopranos role.  This disc has some good extras, and a really fantastic audio/video presentation.  If you are a fan of the show, you know you are already picking this up.

Hi Bryan Here…..

‘Infernal Affairs’ is amazing.  This was the original ‘Departed’ film that Scorsese made.  ‘Infernal Affairs’ was made in 2002 with ‘The Departed’  being made in 2006.  Scorsese must have seen this movie when it came out and quickly wanted to make an American version.  And that’s exactly what he did.  ‘Infernal Affairs’ is exactly what ‘The Departed is, but made in Hong Kong.  It has a lot of the same scenes, characters, and plot lines.  And this bluray release is quite good.  If you are a fan of ‘The Departed’, then ‘Infernal Affairs’ is a film you will love.

Evil Dead 2.  Possibly one of the greatest films ever made.  It has a 98% Fresh rating on rotten tomatoes.  This sequel to the Sam Raimi horror gore fest, is pretty much a re-telling of the first film with a bigger budget and an added humor in the vein of Three Stooges.  This humor and horror mix nicely to bring you one of the best thrill rides of your life.  And let me just say, it seems that they went back to the original negatice of the film and cleaned it all up for this release.  It looks AMAZING.  The best it has ever looked.  This gets my highest recommendation.  Get it.

Trailer Analysis – The Hunger Games

by Justin Cline on Nov 17th, 2011

Translating a book–especially a popular one–to the big screen is a tricky thing.  If you’re in need of confirmation on this, just look to the Harry Potter series, where the movies were just as often accused of getting it wrong as they were praised for getting it right.  Should the filmmakers be more concerned with producing a good movie or being slavishly reverent to the source material?  That’s a difficult question to answer.  For my money, the film must be able to stand on its own while not entirely disavowing the core of what made it popular in the first place.  The cast and crew must continuously walk a fine line between winning over a new audience and alienating the old one.

That having been said, let’s take a look at the most recent trailer for The Hunger Games. Read the rest of this entry »

Rob Zombie To Direct “Lords of Salem”

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 23rd, 2010

Rock God and Film Director Rob Zombie has announced his next film he will direct which will be “Lords of Salem”.  It is about what unfolds when an group of witches plague modern-day Salem.


Zombie says he will write the script and start shooting next year.


Also, Zombie was attracted to the setup by an offer of autonomy — he’s given “total control” over script, casting and final cut. That’s a far cry from working with the Weinsteins and Dimension.


The film will be a thriller, “set in contemporary Salem, where the inhabitants receive a demonic visit from a 300-year old coven of witches.”


Zombie says his best filmmaking experience to date has been with LionsGate on The Devil’s Rejects, and I’d mark the coincidence that Rejects is his best film. He says the battles on the two Halloween movies were draining. (”By the time I got [my way], I didn’t care anymore.”)

Speaking to Deadline, Zombie also namedrops The Shining as an example of a slow-burn film that might not get made by a studio now, which suggests that he might go for a longer, more deliberately paced film while making The Lords of Salem.


Zombie also went on to say, “I wanted to break away from anything related to preexisting material…The remake train is getting pretty tired now and when I made Halloween, everybody complained, either that it was too much like the original or too different. I like that people either love or hate what I do because it’s better than being in the middle, which means forgettable. But when you do an original premise, they take it on face value and after three years of not being able to win on Halloween, I just couldn’t go through that again.”


If only he had total control over House of 1000 Corpses.  I like Rob as a filmmaker, and I can’t wait to see his return to original movies.
