I loved many things about the first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, but I was especially impressed by Mike Colter‘s Luke Cage. He may have been a guest star in another superhero’s show, but he made a strong case for why he was getting his own solo series. Now, that solo series is a month away from arriving on Netflix and a new clip has made its way online. I was already planning to watch this whole thing in one or two sittings (because this is the life I have chosen), but this clip only helps to further convince me that this isn’t a terrible choice.

This past summer was pretty disappointing in the sequel and remake department, even if the box office numbers weren’t as underwhelming as they may have seemed. This summer’s blockbusters just felt mostly underwhelming, but thankfully there are plenty of smaller independent films that are worth seeking out. However, just because this summer churned out some regrettable sequels and remakes, don’t expect Hollywood to slow down on churning them out.
Next month brings the sequel Blair Witch to theaters, and while it’s a recognizable title, the filmmakers behind it come from the indie world. In fact, the experience of working on a film like this has only solidified why sequels and remakes will continue to be made instead of focusing more on original titles. Producer Keith Calder recently took to Twitter to explain how the kind of attention paid to a movie like Blair Witch compares to his work on movies like The Guest and You’re Next. Read More »

We got our first good look at Justice League when Warner Bros. dropped the Comic-Con reel last month, but today brings another tiny taste of the film thanks to Ben Affleck. The star/producer shared a brief video revealing Steppenwolf won’t be the only villain reporting for duty on the DC superhero team-up movie. It looks like Deathstroke will be showing up as well. See the Justice League villain video below.
UPDATE: TheWrap reports Deathstroke will be the main villain in Affleck’s upcoming Batman solo movie. Read More »

Many of us grew up watching Renny Harlin’s action movies like Cliffhanger, Die Hard 2, and The Adventures of Ford Fairlane. It would be several more years before Jackie Chan was properly introduced to America with the U.S. release of Rumble in the Bronx. The two represent quite different approaches to action, with Harlin embodying the explosive bombastic American style and Chan his own unique brand of comedic martial arts.
Harlin directed Chan’s latest movie, Skiptrace. Chan plays Hong Kong detective Benny Chan, who is mismatched with an American gambler Connor Watts (Johnny Knoxville). Chan has to get Watts back to Hong Kong, but their journey will take them from Russia, to the mainland, through the desert and the cities, all while being chased by bad guys led by Dasha (Eve Torres). Some of Chan’s trademark set pieces include a fight in a Russian nesting doll factory, and another scene has him singing “Rolling in the Deep.”
We spoke with Harlin by phone out of his Beijing office, because he’s staying put there. I had actually corresponded with Harlin on Twitter last year after the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles showed his maligned pirate film Cutthroat Island. 20 years later it finally played to a friendly crowd. We started out talking about the Cutthroat Island screening, and discussed Jackie Chan, American vs. Chinese filmmaking, and more. Read More »
Harmony Korine‘s The Trap is on pause. Al Pacino, Benicio Del Toro, Idris Elba, Robert Pattinson, and James Franco were set to star in the film, which is about an insane-sounding feud between a musician (Elba) and his old, ex-convict buddy (Del Toro). The project was financed and ready to go, but after Korine had some personal problems with an actor who was initially attached to the project, a delay occurred. Until The Trap goes before cameras, Korine has been considering other films, including an adaptation of Alissa Nutting’s novel Tampa.
Below, learn more about Korine’s Tampa adaptation.
