The best memory I have about 2010 film Skyline is the possibility that it is actually Skyfall. Every time I see the word “Skyline” I think it’s the misprinted title of the infinitely superior James Bond movie. Then my mind resets to the 2010 Brothers Strause film starring Eric Balfour. “Oh, right, that’s a movie.”
Well, that movie – which was about an alien invasion seen from inside a Los Angeles skyrise – is getting a sequel called Beyond Skyline. Three new cast members actually have our interest piqued for the second story. The first is Frank Grillo, the bad-ass star of Captain America: The Winter Solider and The Purge: Anarchy. The others are Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian, two of the stars of The Raid and The Raid 2. Read more about the Skyline sequel cast below. Read More »

Unlike live-action Hollywood films, animation isn’t star-driven. Stories are the stars in animation and, if you don’t believe it, look at the biggest animated film of all time: Frozen. Talented actors and singers in every role, none of which can yet sell a movie wholly on their own. Still, having big stars in your animated film doesn’t mean it’s bad. Pixar regularly gets some of the biggest names in the world to voice their characters.
Which is to say, the newly announced cast members for the animated film Animal Crackers are a mixed bag. But it’s a great cast none the less. Produced by Blue Dream Studios, Animal Crackers will feature the voices of Sylvester Stallone, Danny DeVito, Ian McKellen, Patrick Warburton, Gilbert Gottfried, Raven-Symoné, Harvey Fierstein and others.

Ben Wheatley (along with writer/editor Amy Jump) has developed a career as one of the UK’s best up and coming directors. But he’s about to make the transition to shooting a film in the US. His next film Free Fire will be an “action shootout movie” with Luke Evans in the lead role and a healthy influence from Sam Peckinpah and hard-boiled crime movies. Read More »
