Jason Statham says he’d totally be down to do Crank 3, but the very uncomfortable-looking header image has me wondering why. Also after the jump:
- The fearsome matriarch from Winter’s Bone joins Iron Man 3
- SpongeBob SquarePants 2 hires Kung Fu Panda 2 writers
- Jesse Eisenberg looks forward to voicing Blu again for Rio 2
- Ashley Bell promises Last Exorcism 2 is “scarier than the first”
- Watch a (very) brief new clip from Paranormal Activity 4

We’ve seen two teaser trailers for Simon West’s sequel to The Expendables — well, one teaser, and one trailer for this trailer. But now we’ve got an actual trailer, with actual footage showing some of what happens when you put Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Liam Hemsworth, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the same movie.
I don’t think there’s anything else I can say here; see the trailer below. (Header image is, sadly, not from the trailer. Consider it a bonus.) Read More »
Brian De Palma has been actively looking for new film projects, and it looks like he will shoot the film Passion in the next few months. But he’s also setting up something to do later this year: if things work out, a deal in the works at the Berlin Film Festival will see the director behind the camera for a remake of the 1986 Burt Reynolds thriller Heat. (Released in the US in ’87, so you’ll often see it listed as an ’87 movie.)
Jason Statham will be in the Reynolds role. More detail follows, including the reason I’m fairly interested in this remake. Read More »
Here’s a pretty rote teaser trailer for Affliction: The Motion Picture… er, The Expendables 2, which puts Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham back at the forefront of an action extravaganza that also stars Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Liam Hemsworth, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Check it out below if you want to see all those faces for a second or two each. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
I don’t have any belief that The Expendables 2 is likely to be the movie I hope it will be. After the first movie, I’m not even convinced that this sequel is fated to be a solid action movie. But magic can happen. While we wait to see any footage from the movie that Simon West has been directing in Bulgaria, here’s a poster that also acts as the best collage of aging action stars you’re going to see this year.
I can easily see some young action fan having made a similar version of this poster by collaging stills in the late ’80s or early ’90s. This one really ups the ante with leather, flying dirt and a lot of thousand-yard (well, maybe 400-yard for some of those guys) stares.
Check out the full poster below. Update: image has been removed at the request of the studio. Read More »
One of the hoariest action movie plot cliches is the one where a tough guy has to protect a kid against all manner of danger. That’s the old saw used for the latest Jason Statham movie, Safe. He’s a former bad-ass cop who finds himself protecting a young girl who has memorized a string of numbers that everyone in New York city seems to want. Beyond the fact that Statham’s partner this time out is a kid, this looks more or less like most of the other Jason Statham action movies that have hit over the past few years. Check out a trailer below. Read More »
Yesterday the CEO of Hasbro said in an earnings conference call that the company is already in talks with Paramount, Steven Spielberg, and Michael Bay about making Transformers 4. Spielberg produced the three existing films and Bay, as I’m sure you’re aware, directed the trilogy. I assumed, given Bay’s statements over the last year, that he would be involved in only a producer capacity. But a story later yesterday afternoon linked Bay as director to Transformers 4 and 5, which might shoot at the same time.
But the lines of communication aren’t quite clear, because Michal Bay is now saying he has not talked to Paramount about additional Transformers movies. Read More »
Our box office dollars asked for it and now Paramount is hoping to deliver a double dose. Earlier today, news broke that Hasbro is keen on getting director Michael Bay back behind the camera to shoot a fourth Transformers film. Variety is now reporting the plan is much bigger than that. They’re actually considering filming a fourth and fifth film simultaneously – much as Warner Bros. did with The Matrix sequels, Disney did with the second and third Pirates of the Caribbean films and Universal is considering with the sixth and seventh Fast and Furious movies. Transformers: Dark of the Moon screenwriter Ehren Kruger reportedly has an idea for both films and they’re current looking for writers. There’s more after the jump. Read More »
