the shadow - a Russell Mulcahy interview

Although you might not recognize the name Russell Mulcahy, you almost definitely would recognize his work. Especially if, like me, you grew up in the 80s. Because Mulcahy directed over 400 music videos during the decade. I spoke with Mulcahy about how that journey began. From directing the first ever music video that appeared on MTV to regularly working with the likes of Duran Duran, Billy Joel and Elton Joel.

I never realized that I wanted to see a remake of the market sections of The Mist where Stephen King’s crazy monsters are played by tiger sharks.

Give ‘Em Hell Malone Cannes Promo Trailer

Give 'em Hell Malone

In March, we posted the first promo trailer for Give ‘Em Hell Malone. Set to the song “Bad to the Bone”, the trailer was basically a montage of blood squirting and guns firing. Yes, it was pretty frigging cool. AICN has a look at a new promo trailer, which was cut for the upcoming Cannes Film Market. This trailer is much more traditional, giving us a better look at the film’s story. The last trailer was just for fun, this ailer is to sell the film. I love the old school action movie look and feel of this film.

Directed by Russell Mulcahy, the filmmaker who brought us the Highlander series, the movie stars the very underrated and underused Thomas Jane as a tough as nails private investigator. Malone takes a job retrieving a case containing a mysterious secret, and goes through hell to protect the information but he dishes some hell as well… Bullets, fists, and blood fly as he fights through an army of thugs to protect the secret. I’ve embedded the trailer after the jump, leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Resident Evil: Extinction

I’ve never really been a fan of the Resident Evil movies. So it came as a huge surprise that I actually enjoyed the The Resident Evil: Extinction teaser trailer. The teaser opens with an incredibly cool constructed visual of the extinction of Las Vegas. Does this mean it’s going to be a good movie? Way-way–Wait a minute. I never said that.
