I don’t think I spoke to anyone at Fantastic Fest who saw John Wick and didn’t like it. I heard praise for Keanu Reeves‘ turn as a killer, for the action and overall direction of Chad Stahelski, who was Reeves‘ stunt double in The Matrix, and stunt choreographer for Man of Tai Chi, and, yeah, for the dog. You’ll see the dog again in this new John Wick trailer, and get a taste of everything else, too, as it promotes the story of a former assassin (Reeves) who goes back into action to target gangsters who have “taken everything from him.” Read More »

Update: Lionsgate has released a Saw 10th anniversary re-release trailer and special poster promoting the event.
Lionsgate is set to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the theatrical release of SAW by bringing the film back to theaters nationwide for a one-week run starting on Friday, October 31st with select screenings beginning Thursday night, October 30th. Complain all you want about the series of films that it spawned but the original is actually a pretty interesting indie film. (I first discovered it the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.) The director of the original film, James Wan, has gone on to create the Insidious franchise, as well as directing The Conjuring and the upcoming Fast & Furious 7. Read the full Saw 2014 rerelease press release after the jump.

Last week, Guardians of the Galaxy became the top grossing domestic film of 2014, and hit that mark in just about four weeks’ time. That feat will probably be bested in even less time starting November 21, when The Hunger Games: MockingJay Part 1 hits theaters. Jennifer Lawrence is back as Katniss, the girl on fire and the symbol of hope for a nation rebelling against its government. In the first part of the final story, the people’s rebellion against the Capital truly begins.
A new poster has been released featuring Lawrence’s character in a “Rebel Warrior” outfit. Or, at least the back of it. See the new Hunger Games MockingJay poster below. Read More »
Michael Almereyda is the latest to tweak William Shakespeare’s work to suit his purposes. Almereyda’s Cymbeline sees him teaming one more with Ethan Hawke, who starred in the director’s Hamlet in 2000. Cymbeline envisions the original text as “an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug dealing biker gang set in a corruption-riddled America.” Ed Harris also stars, along with Milla Jovovich, John Leguizamo, Penn Badgley, Dakota Johnson and Anton Yelchin. Check out the new Cymbeline trailer below, along with a new clip. Read More »

The Expendables 3 is a mostly successful blend of the franchise’s first two films. It’s filled with the wanton mayhem and destruction of the second film, but also plenty of terrible dialogue and overall cheesiness of the first movie. Despite those flaws, the Patrick Hughes sequel works because it’s constantly fun and features a story that builds off the fact the franchise was in danger of getting stale, leading it into a new era. Read the rest of our Expendables 3 review below. Read More »
