the predator cast

The original 1987 Predator is one of those movies that I can’t stop watching once I see a frame of it. If John McTiernan’s action/horror/science fiction classic is on a screen near me, I will be drawn into its gravitational pull. There’s a special power in how it builds an atmosphere of macho excess before quickly nicking the whole thing, taking deranged pleasure in watching an ensemble of tough guys get completely obliterated for by an alien for two hours.

So while the Predator itself is important in a Predator movie, its victims are even more important. So when director Shane Black (of The Nice Guys and Iron Man 3 fame) reveals the cast of the latest sequel, we should take note. Are we going to like these people enough to watch them get blown to pieces by an extraterrestrial menace that sees them as nothing more than trophies to be mounted on a spaceship wall?

‘Logan’ Images: X-23 Unleashes the Fury

logan images

The latest trailer for Logan continued to help make James Mangold‘s film stand out from the herd. Everything we’ve seen so far from the R-rated comic book movie implies what Mangold has been saying all along: this isn’t your average superhero movie.  Hugh Jackman recently described Logan as a slightly more violent Little Miss Sunshine, which isn’t the typical go-to reference for most comic book movies.

Below, check out some new Logan images.

Logan poster

Normally, when a studio offers us the chance to preview footage from an upcoming film, we’re treated to a handful of clips. In the case of James Mangold‘s Logan, we saw the entire first act — perhaps 30 or 40 minutes of footage. Such a move speaks to 20th Century Fox’s faith in the film, touted as Hugh Jackman‘s very last performance of Wolverine after 17 years. And based on what we saw, that confidence is well placed.

Mangold’s Logan feels unlike any superhero movie in recent movie, and yet its gritty Western vibe feels perfectly suited to Jackman’s world-weary take on the character. If this really is the last time we’ll see his Wolverine, it seems like a fitting end to his tenure. Read our Logan footage review below.

Shane Black's The Predator

It’s understandable that fans get leery when beloved movies from decades past get lined up for the reboot treatment. Even the legacyquel that keeps the original mythology intact and acts more like a sequel than a reboot can be worrisome. However, in the case of The Predator, we’re getting a follow-up to the original 1987 sci-fi action classic that hails from Shane Black, who not only is the accomplished director of Iron Man 3, The Nice Guys and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, but also had a supporting role in the original movie. That should definitely put some fans at ease.

Now Shane Black has opened up a bit about The Predator in a couple recent interviews where he talks about what a Predator movie should be, the casting of Boyd Holbrook in the lead after Benicio del Toro exited the project, and why the movie absolutely had to be R-rated. Read More »

narcos season 3 cast

We know that Netflix has plans for at least two more seasons of its hit crime drama Narcos, but with the big bad transitioning from Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) and the Medellin Cartel to Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela (Damian Alcazar) and the Cali Cartel.

Is There Another Villain in ‘Wolverine 3: Logan’?

Wolverine 3 title Logan poster

We’ve read a decent amount of information this week about Logan, Hugh Jackman‘s eighth and final outing as the Wolverine. The film comes out in less than five months, but because 20th Century Fox and all involved have done a fine job keeping details about James Mangold‘s sequel under wraps, we don’t know a whole lot about the movie. Not until this week did we even know who Boyd Holbrook (Narcos) was playing in the film. Holbrook was confirmed as one the film’s villains, but a new look at Logan shows Donald Pierce (Holbrook) maybe isn’t alone in his fight against the Wolverine.

Below, see the villain a new Logan photo calls to mind.
