Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is currently shooting in Germany with one week of production left, and while Marvel Studios stayed home from San Diego Comic Con International 2015, they did show up to Disney’s fan convention D23 Expo 2015 with Captain America (Chris Evans, who got a standing ovation), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and perhaps most importantly, footage from the 2016 release.

Last week, Universal announced that Frank Grillo would return for The Purge 3. Grillo starred in the second film in the series, The Purge: Anarchy, which was the sequel to the surprise hit The Purge starring Ethan Hawke. Spoiler alert, but Hawke was not available for the sequel due to plot-related incidents in the first movie, although producer Jason Blum has said he would like to do a prequel which could revisit Hawke’s character before the incidents of The Purge.
I had an interview with Grillo on Sunday, August 9 for his DirecTV series Kingdom at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. He told me he was asked back before they had a script featuring his character, and then writer/director James DeMonaco wrote another story for Sergeant (Grillo). Read More »
On Sunday, August 9, Grillo was giving interviews for the Television Critics Association on behalf of his DirecTV original series Kingdom, in which he plays the owner of a MMA gym and trainer to a fighter. During a one on one, I had a chance to ask him if he’s just in Captain America: Civil War to fight, or if he gets to do some drama too.
I also asked if The Raid remake had been delayed to allow him to film the role in Civil War, but it turns out that wasn’t the case. Grillo said the studio never found a lead with whom they were happy, and suggests the film has been stalled as other projects intervene. Read More »
Writer/director James DeMonaco won’t be the only one returning to purge again when The Purge 3 hits theaters next summer. The creator of the sleeper Blumhouse franchise made the first two films in the series and will make the third, and he’s bringing The Purge: Anarchy actor Frank Grillo with him. Read More »
Production is underway on Captain America: Civil War right now down in Atlanta, Georgia, and with a whole bunch of The Avengers (new and old) on the cast roster, it’s safe to say we can expect a pretty massive flick. And while the movie doesn’t arrive until May 6th, 2016, one of the cast members is wasting no time driving a wedge between our superheroes.
Jeremy Renner, who plays the skilled archer and former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye), took to Twitter yesterday with a little welcome card that teases the coming battle between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans).

Originally, James Wan was supposed to have two films out in 2014: Furious 7, which he directed; and Demonic, which he produced. Alas, both got pulled off the calendar. Furious 7 has at least found a new date in April, but we’re still waiting for release details on Demonic.
In the meantime, though, we do have a new Demonic trailer that offers a taste of the creepiness to come. Frank Grillo and Maria Bello star as a detective and a psychologist (respectively) investigating the deaths of five college students who perished while looking for ghosts. Will Canon directed. Watch the Demonic trailer after the jump. Read More »

The best memory I have about 2010 film Skyline is the possibility that it is actually Skyfall. Every time I see the word “Skyline” I think it’s the misprinted title of the infinitely superior James Bond movie. Then my mind resets to the 2010 Brothers Strause film starring Eric Balfour. “Oh, right, that’s a movie.”
Well, that movie – which was about an alien invasion seen from inside a Los Angeles skyrise – is getting a sequel called Beyond Skyline. Three new cast members actually have our interest piqued for the second story. The first is Frank Grillo, the bad-ass star of Captain America: The Winter Solider and The Purge: Anarchy. The others are Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian, two of the stars of The Raid and The Raid 2. Read more about the Skyline sequel cast below. Read More »
