It looks like Bruce Willis is on the verge of following in the footsteps of John Cusack and Nicolas Cage by starring in movies that no one sees or cares about. Did you see The Prince, Vice, Extraction, Precious Cargo or Marauders? Those are all real Bruce Willis movies released in the past few years that almost no one knew existed. Now another entirely forgettable movie is on the horizon for the actor, but this one looks batshit crazy enough that I just might have to see it.
Once Upon a Time in Venice follows Bruce Willis as a Los Angeles private investigator who gets caught up with some dangerous people after they steal his dog. But this isn’t a serious tale of revenge for man’s best friend like John Wick. No, instead this looks like a movie that is desperate to be a Shane Black or Quentin Tarantino movie, but the trailer has been cut by someone who just learned how to use iMovie on their Macbook.

Maybe if I’d seen the Starz show Spartacus: War of the Damned, I’d be on board the Jai Courtney train. But aside from a halfway decent performance in the first Jack Reacher movie and the weirdness of his Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad, I haven’t seen much from the guy that warrants his level of stardom.
But maybe he’s better in smaller films than blockbusters. Let’s test that theory by taking a look at the trailer for a new World War II thriller called The Exception, which stars Courtney as a Nazi soldier who falls in love with a Jewish girl played by Baby Driver’s Lily James. Watch The Exception trailer below.

Suicide Squad has come and gone, but soon enough we’ll see at least one of the bad guy ensemble’s characters return to the big screen with Margot Robbie reprising her role as Harley Quinn in Gotham City Sirens. While we’re waiting to see if the movie ends up getting the greenlight to start shooting this year alongside Aquaman, we can take a look behind the scenes at the visual effects that helped bring the more wild side of the DC Extended Universe to life.
After the jump check out Suicide Squad VFX breakdowns that show how Cara Delevingne transformed into Enchantress, how a subway was destroyed and how Diablo’s big, climactic firestorm was created. Watch the Suicide Squad visual effects videos below. Read More »
There are quibbles to be had with director Matthew Vaughn‘s Kingsman: The Secret Service, but it has such a fresh, bizarre, and anarchic energy – it’s easy to forgive the hiccups and speed bumps and embrace the bigger picture. When the credits roll, you’re ready to see more ultra-violent spy adventures starring this crew. With the set-up out of the way, a sequel can hit the ground running and sprint directly into the craziness of the first film’s third act.
The first Kingsman: The Golden Circle trailer has arrived and, at first glance, it appears to live up to the first film’s audaciousness.

When Steven Soderbergh first read Rebecca Blunt’s script, Logan Lucky, it was to make a suggestion for who should direct. This was in the fall of 2014 after the Traffic and Magic Mike director announced his retirement from moviemaking. After reading Blunt’s script, though, Soderbergh was inspired enough to return to features.
His first theatrical release since 2013’s Side Effects comes out this August. Logan Lucky is another heist movie from Soderbergh, but he describes it as an “inversion of an Ocean’s movie,” without the gloss and cool factor. Below, the director shares some Logan Lucky plot details and discusses his return to directing movies.

Hollywood loves history, but it can be a real challenge to bring a real life event to the big screen, especially when it involves people that some of the public lived through and experienced through the radio and television. Churchill will attempt to chronicle the struggle of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Brian Cox) as he deals with the impending start of D-Day during World War II in 1944. It looks like it could be a typical awards contender, but that might be difficult since the movie hits theaters this summer.

Everyone thinks Bob Kane is the sole creator of Batman. What the new documentary Batman and Bill presupposes is, maybe he’s not.
Even though Bob Kane is frequently and historically associated with the creation of Batman, the more educated comic book fans now know that many of the signature elements of Batman’s long comic book history were created by another man named Bill Finger. But why is his name not nearly as synonymous with the creation of The Dark Knight? A new documentary explores why Finger was omitted from Batman’s history and only just recently started getting the credit that he’s due.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The most recent trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight showed off plenty from the sequel that is supposed to be the last installment of the franchise directed by Michael Bay. However, one character that we still haven’t seen much of is Hot Rod.
The Autobot has origins going all the way back to the 1986 animated movie when he was granted the Matrix of Leadership and became Rodimus Prime in the wake of the death of Optimus Prime. We’re not likely to see that same story unfold on the big screen, if only because it was a storyline that fans hated, but Hot Rod will still play a key role in the sequel.
A new image of Hot Rod in Transformers The Last Knight has emerged online along with a slew of details explaining what role the Autobot plays in the story. It turns out that he has played quite a pivotal role in the life of one of our new human characters. Find out more below. Read More »
Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we bug out in the forest, decide to leave our lives and never come back, find ourselves in the obituaries, get our picture taken by Errol Morris, and try to be a better parent. Read More »
