Alex Proyas doesn’t make as many movies as we’d like to see from him. The director of Dark City and Knowing is a selective filmmaker. By studio filmmaking standards, he’s an ambitious director. Knowing may not be everyone’s favorite movie, but it does end with the destruction of Earth and the lead character dying, not saving the world. Proyas’ new film, Gods of Egypt, may be his biggest one yet, based on the plot synopsis, but our first glimpse at the project doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. Then again, these are just character posters.
Check out the Gods of Egypt character posters after the jump.

Spike Lee‘s Kickstarter film, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, came out earlier this year. The director behind Do the Right Thing and The 25th Hour caused some controversy — not the first time in his career — when he started the campaign for his “vampire” movie, and the actual film itself was just as divisive. But it’s not the only movie we’ll see from Lee in 2015. There are three Spike Lee movies this year: Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, plus Livin’ Da Dream and Chi-raq.

Johnny Knoxville already brought us the wild antics of Bad Grandpa with his trusty Jackass crew, preying on the clueless public with hidden cameras and prosthetic genitals. Now Robert De Niro is trying to get in the geriatric tomfoolery game with Dirty Grandpa.
The new raunchy comedy from director Dan Mazer (I Give It a Year) sees the iconic star of Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas as the grandfather of Zac Efron, the uptight grandson who is tricked into driving through Daytona Beach during the insanity of spring break. Now the first Dirty Grandpa trailer has arrived, delivering pretty much exactly the kind of debauchery you’d expect. Read More »

John Wick would have been an excellent action film if it took place in a world that was recognizable as our own, but it achieved instant classic status by taking a left turn into The Continental. Once Keanu Reeves‘ retired hitman decided that yeah, he was back, he dug up his weird assassins-only currency and checked into a room at that fancy hotel, an establishment that caters exclusively to professional murderers. Overseen by Ian McShane‘s mysterious Winston, The Continental houses all the resources a working hitman needs and operates with a strict “no violence on the premises” rule that sees violators punished with death. The film’s landscape of killers is just as complex and rich as a fantasy or science fiction and it practically begs to be explored further.
Now, it has been officially revealed that McShane is returning for John Wick 2, which means that The Continental is returning, which means that Chad Stahelski‘s sequel will once again take us into the borderline-fantastical world of the first film. This is excellent news.
What we know about the latest return to the John Wick 2 cast can be found after the jump.

A Power Rangers movie is happening and there’s nothing we can do to stop it. They’ve gone and started casting the Rangers and everything. See what your nostalgia hath wrought, children of the ’90s?
Director Dean Israelite‘s upcoming take on the beloved – if not necessarily good – television series already found its Pink Ranger in Terra Nova actress Naomi Scott, but now it’s gone and found itself a Red Ranger. Chances are strong that you haven’t heard of Dacre Montgomery, but chances are stronger that he was probably just a collection of scattered DNA particles swirling around inside his parents when Mighty Morphin Power Rangers originally debuted in 1993. Insert your own “This makes me feel old!” joke here.
Read on about the new Red Ranger actor after the jump.

When a dog is killed in a movie, it’s generally a cheap ploy to elicit emotion. John Wick, on the other hand, earns your angst. The lovable beagle is only in the movie for 10 or 15 minutes, but when it’s killed off, it means something to both the narrative and the titular character. After the jump, learn why, thank God, John Wick 2 will not kill another adorable puppy.

Ever since Lionsgate picked up the rights to Power Rangers, the project has been described as a reboot. However, there have been rumblings that the story would somehow keep the mythology of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and all the versions that followed intact. When plot details surfaced over the summer, we learned how the original Power Rangers would be utilized in a big action sequence opening the movie. But it turns out some of those details may not have been very accurate.
A new batch of Power Rangers plot details from the opening of the movie, including the villains involved and a link to previous iterations of the team, have painted a different picture, and it sounds much more satisfying for longtime fans of the series. However, beware of spoilers from here on out! Read More »
