Gi Joe

Joe 3, which may have been delayed due to scheduling. Director D.J. Caruso was attached to direct the film, but he moved on to make xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

resident evil the final chapter clip

When the Resident Evil series was one single mediocre movie, I didn’t care for it. When it was two movies, it could barely hold my interest. And then there were three movies. And then four movies. And then five. And now, sixth movie in the series, titled Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, is due out at the end of the month and damn it, these silly movies have won me over. As the number of films has increased, as their internal logic and mythology has gotten increasingly convoluted, as it became increasingly clear that these movies have a very specific lunatic identity, I began to appreciate them. They’re not good, but man, I sure like talking about ’em.

So yeah, I can behind the newest clip from the movie, which features series star Milla Jovovich battling Game of Thrones star Iain Glen on top of a giant armored vehicle that’s being pursued by a horde of zombies. Sure. Why not?

rogue one tarkin

Last week I had the opportunity to jump on the phone with the visual effects team behind Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. After the jump, you can read a transcript of my full interview with Rogue One executive producer / visual effects supervisor / writer John Knoll, animation supervisor Hal Hickel, and special effects supervisor Neil Corbould.

In the conversation, Knoll talks about his original low-budget pitch for Rogue One. We also find out just how many people and how much time it took to recreate Tarkin, just how much work was put into resurrected Gold and Red Leader from A New Hope, and if we’ll end up seeing more deleted scenes with finished visual effects on the home video release, and talk Princess Leia, miniatures, and much more.

David Brent Life on the Road trailer

It has been well over a decade now since the end of the U.K. Office, which centered around bad boss David Brent and the poor underlings forced to work with him. So what’s the old chap been up to since then? A new Netflix movie promises to answer that question.

Written by, directed by, and starring Ricky GervaisDavid Brent: Life on the Road reveals the former Wernham-Hogg manager is now a traveling salesman for a cleaning products company. When he isn’t pushing mops and brushes, he’s pursuing his dreams of rock stardom with his band, Foregone Conclusion.
