John Wick 2 TV Spot

Ensuring that there will be at least one great action movie this year, John Wick: Chapter 2 is hitting theaters in about a month. Keanu Reeves is back as the titular assassin, and he looks even deadlier this time.

A new John Wick 2 TV spot has arrived online, featuring a couple awesome new moments of action, including a sequence that takes place in a room full of mirrors, and a chase that doesn’t end so well for one motorcyclist. As Ian McShane cautions to a soon-to-be-dead bad guy, “You stabbed the devil in the back, and now he’s coming again.” So Keanu Reeves will really be the devil this time, instead of The Devil’s Advocate.

La La Land Featurette

Last weekend, La La Land won all of the Golden Globes it was nominated for, setting a new record for the most Golden Globes won by a single film with seven trophies taken home. There’s a good chance that the movie, including stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, will get plenty of Oscar nominations when they’re announced on January 24th too.

In the meantime, more and more people are seeing the musical now that it’s in wide release across the country. That means there’s no better time for a new La La Land featurette to show how director Damien Chazelle blended his love for classic musicals from decades ago with a contemporary romance set in the heart of Los Angeles.

la la land stage musical

We’ve reached the point where everyone should be getting pretty sick and tired of hearing about the greatness of La La Land, but here’s the thing: it is pretty darn great. Damien Chazelle‘s second film was one of my favorite movies of 2016, ranked number three on the overall /Film top 15, and has been making bank at the box office while picking up awards right and left. It’s probably going to win a bunch of naked golden men at the Oscars next month.

In fact, I like La La Land so much that not even the news that Lionsgate may capitalize on its success by transforming it into a stage musical can dampen my enthusiasm.

New Power Rangers Putty Patrollers

Despite the existence of a longer teaser trailer, we still haven’t seen any footage from the new Power Rangers movie that shows the titular heroes suited up in their colored gear. Furthermore, the only villain we’ve seen on-screen is Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, but only taunting one of the Rangers as they lie in bed. In fact, the best glimpses that we’ve gotten of the villains have come in the form of the upcoming toys from the movie, and another has just been revealed.

In the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series, Rita Repulsa consistently sent a batch of clay being known as Putty Patrollers to cause trouble for our heroes. They were pretty stupid, but gave just enough trouble to the multi-colored team to keep them busy for a little while. Now we have confirmation that they’ll be appearing in the movie, but they’ve been given a bit of a makeover.

John Wick Chapter 2

There are many, many reasons to look forward to John Wick: Chapter 2, but one is the fact that it’ll be a The Matrix reunion in miniature. As we reported last year, Laurence Fishburne has joined Keanu Reeves in the action sequel — which is being directed by Chad Stahelski, a stuntman and stunt coordinator on the Matrix trilogy. The earlier trailers have already given us a peek at Fishburne’s character, the Bowery King. Now today, a new image shows the former Neo and the former Morpheus together again.  Read More »

John Wick Comic

Right now, the more we see of John Wick, the better, so the news of a John Wick comic is nothing but music to our ears. We’ll see the character’s eagerly-awaited return early next year in John Wick: Chapter 2. There’s already some talk, thank Heavens, of a John Wick: Chapter 3, but on the big screen isn’t the only place fans can find the dog lover, thanks to Dynamite Entertainment and Lionsgate Entertainment. They’re bringing the hit man to your local comic book store sometime next year.

Below, learn more about the John Wick comic.

the expendables 4

The Expendables was less of a movie and more of an excuse for Sylvester Stallone and his various aging action movie co-stars to pose and preen. Like a former high school quarterback returning to his old stomping grounds to rally the new team at homecoming, these movies represent a nostalgic eagerness with a dash of vanity – you can feel everyone involved muttering “Let’s show these kids how it’s really done” between the frames.

It was charming for a little while. And then it wore off. The Expendables 3 didn’t make nearly as much money as the first two films, but those international numbers were apparently high enough to justify one more sequel. It looks like The Expendables 4 is happening and it will be in theaters in 2018.

Arsenal Trailer - Nicolas Cage

Adrien Grenier is best known for starring in the HBO series Entourage as movie star Vincent Chase. Throughout the series, we’re treated to teases of the movies Grenier’s character has made during his career. Now a trailer for a new action thriller looks like it came straight out of the world of Entourage, complete with a role for Adrian Grenier.

Arsenal follows two brothers (Adrian Grenier and Johnathon Schaech) as they get caught up in the wild antics of a ruthless crime boss — one that just so happens to be played by Nicolas Cage, reprising his character from the 1993 film Deadfall, directed by Cage’s brother Christopher Coppola. Yes, somehow, this is a real movie.
