the predator to use practical effects

The temptation to rely on CGI is huge these days, but director Shane Black is trying to buck that trend.

For his take on The Predator, the fourth installment in the Predator franchise following Predator (1987), Predator 2 (1990), and Predators (2010), he will be revisiting the practical effects that made the first film so iconic. That means getting a 7-plus-foot actor to don a heavy rubber suit in the jungle heat.

Starlight Sylvester Stallone

Back in 2014, we learned that screenwriter Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) had been tasked with penning the screenplay for a film adaptation of a six-issue Mark Millar comic called Starlight. Since then, things have been relatively quiet about the movie, but a new rumor states that 20th Century Fox is eyeing Sylvester Stallone to play the film’s lead character, a retired space hero named Duke McQueen who is called back into action one last time.

Suicide Squad Criticism

Though there are plenty of passionate fans who absolutely love the movies release in the DC Extended Universe so far, there are also plenty of viewers who have been disappointed with the recent offerings of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, even fans who liked what director Zack Snyder did with Man of Steel.

One of the more rampant pieces of criticism is that Warner Bros. and DC are trying to bite off more than they can chew with stories that are convoluted and all over the place. Part of that problem comes from these movies trying to introduce too many characters far too quickly and expecting viewers to care about them just as fast. At least that’s what Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt thinks one of the problems was with Suicide Squad

Once Upon a Time in Venice Trailer

It looks like Bruce Willis is on the verge of following in the footsteps of John Cusack and Nicolas Cage by starring in movies that no one sees or cares about. Did you see The Prince, Vice, Extraction, Precious Cargo or Marauders? Those are all real Bruce Willis movies released in the past few years that almost no one knew existed. Now another entirely forgettable movie is on the horizon for the actor, but this one looks batshit crazy enough that I just might have to see it.

Once Upon a Time in Venice follows Bruce Willis as a Los Angeles private investigator who gets caught up with some dangerous people after they steal his dog. But this isn’t a serious tale of revenge for man’s best friend like John Wick. No, instead this looks like a movie that is desperate to be a Shane Black or Quentin Tarantino movie, but the trailer has been cut by someone who just learned how to use iMovie on their Macbook.

Avengers Infinity War Set Photo - Thanos

Earlier today, we reported how the full title of Avengers 4 is being kept under guard because it would spoil aspects of Avengers: Infinity War. Now, thanks to some loose lips during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press tour, that title may have just been revealed and it’s going to raise the eyebrow of many comic book fans…while meaning pretty much nothing to most civilians.

Update from editor Peter Sciretta: Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has debunked the title rumor, hit the jumo to find out what he said.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

The Exception Jai Courtney

Maybe if I’d seen the Starz show Spartacus: War of the Damned, I’d be on board the Jai Courtney train. But aside from a halfway decent performance in the first Jack Reacher movie and the weirdness of his Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad, I haven’t seen much from the guy that warrants his level of stardom.

But maybe he’s better in smaller films than blockbusters. Let’s test that theory by taking a look at the trailer for a new World War II thriller called The Exception, which stars Courtney as a Nazi soldier who falls in love with a Jewish girl played by Baby Driver’s Lily James. Watch The Exception trailer below.
