Arnold Schwarzenegger Beyond Fest

Late last week, Beyond Fest 2017 hosted a double feature of Predator and The Running Man to celebrate the 30th anniversaries of both films, and star Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared in person for a Q&A session beforehand. It was everything an Arnold fan could have hoped for: great stories, terrific jokes, and even a surprise appearance by Predator co-star Bill Duke.

Read on for some highlights of the event, including a video of Arnold arm wrestling a young fan and the actor’s recounting of how he orchestrated one of Hollywood’s all-time great troll moves during the height of his feud with Sylvester Stallone. Read More »

Alphabitz Art Show

Two of our favorite pop culture artists working today are undoubtedly Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo. We’ve featured their work when they’ve had shows together, and we’ve even featured them when they tackle two different animated shows for adults. Now they’re back for another team show, this time delivering the ABCs of pop culture in a new show called Alphabitz.

Alphabitz does exactly what you would expect it to by having Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo create pop culture pieces inspired by the alphabet. For example, there’s P for Predator, V for Voltron, B for BB-8 and much more. But beyond having these familiar characters from pop culture representing a letter, what they’re doing is also indicative of the letter chosen, which makes for some goofy scenarios, like Freddy Krueger filing his nails in France, or Dracula driving Miss Daisy in a Dodge.

Check out pieces from the Alphabitz art show below, including some debut images given exclusively to /Film. Read More »

Dead Friends - Morning Watch

(The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.)

In this edition, watch an animated short about a zombie and his dog living in a post-apocalyptic world. Plus, check out a remix of The Goonies from Eclectic Method, as well as a video essay focusing on the odd trend in cinema of having characters sliding down mountains, water slides, and mud slides in the 1980s and 1990s, and a hypothesis about why it was a phenomenon at the time.

sterling k brown the predator

Sterling K. Brown is a busy man. When he’s not winning Emmys for his incredible work on American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson or making it clear that he wouldn’t say no to playing Green Lantern in the DC Extended Universe, he’s starring on the critically acclaimed series This is Us and  simultaneously filming Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther and Shane Black‘s The Predator. I’m surprised he found time to stand still for a few minutes, let alone share a few fun details about what Black is doing with the latest entry in the Predator series.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Predator

One of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s favorite catchphrases is “I’ll be back,” but it sounds like that won’t be the case when it comes to reprising his role as the action hero Dutch in writer/director Shane Black’s upcoming revamp of The Predator. After teasing the possibility of a return to the franchise, the actor seems to have made his decision. Read why Arnold Schwarzenegger won’t be in The Predator below.

The Predator Cast

Thomas Jane (The Mist) is in final negotiations for Shane Black‘s The Predator. Once a deal is made, he’ll join an already impressive cast that includes Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), and Olivia Munn (The Newsroom).

Another sequel in the works, director J.A. Bayona‘s follow-up to Jurassic World, has added Daniella Pineda (The Detour) to the cast.

Below, learn more about the Jurassic World sequel and The Predator cast additions.

sterling k. brown

Sterling K. Brown is having a moment. He won a well-deserved Emmy for playing prosecutor Christopher Darden in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, a tricky role that required him to radiate intelligence and charisma while also portraying a man who makes all kinds of poor choices. He immediately followed that with a lead role on This is Us, which has become a big hit for NBC. And like any actor having a moment, he’s been sucked into the world of comic book movies with a role in the upcoming Black Panther.

And the hot streak continues with Shane Black’s The Predator.

the predator keegan-michael key

I’m still not entirely sure what a new Predator sequel directed by Shane Black will look and feel like, but I’m increasingly eager to find out. The cast of The Predator has officially started taking shape and the fantastic Keegan-Michael Key is the latest actor recruited to do battle those crab-faced alien hunters.

Sci-Scapes - Sci-Fi Crossover Poster

For any sci-fi fan, it would be a dream come true to find a place where the characters from all your favorite sci-fi movies and TV shows existed in the same world. But unless we figure out how to travel to a parallel dimension where all those character that have been imagined over the years are real, we’ll have to settle for this new print from the Hero Complex Gallery show Sci-Scapes.

Artists Josan Gonzalez and Laurie Greasley created this insanely detailed piece of work that feels like a sci-fi version of Where’s Waldo. But rather than looking for the bespectacled, red and white striped sweater wearing explorer, you can just look at any part of this image and find someone or something from RoboCop, Total Recall, Akira, Alien, Stranger Things, Blade Runner, Predator and much more.

Check out the sci-fi crossover poster after the jump. Read More »
