Braven

Jason Momoa stars in Braven, a film with a dumb name and a whole lot of heart. Braven feels like an anomaly – it’s the type of action movie that was more prevalent in the late ’80s and early ’90s; the type of action movie that used to star Jean-Claude Van Damme. They don’t really make ’em like Braven anymore, and that makes this a film that has to be seen to be believed.

Braven Trailer

Manly men Jason Momoa and Stephen Lang find themselves dealing with drug dealers on snowmobiles in Braven, a film with a clunky title and a whole lot of charm. The Braven trailer is filled with the type of glorious action-movie cheese that used to be prominent in the 1980s and 1990s, and I mean that in the best possible way. You should definitely watch the new trailer below.

avatar sequel budget

Bless James Cameron‘s heart – he’s determined now more than ever to make those multiple Avatar sequels that no one is likely looking forward to. While the first film was undeniably a box office juggernaut, taking in $2.788 billion, people aren’t exactly chomping at the bit for a sequel. But James Cameron soldiers on, shooting four consecutive Avatar sequels at once with a whopper of a price tag. Read more about the Avatar sequel budget below.

Avatar is the franchise that keeps threatening to coming back and it looks like its dead characters are undergoing that same fate.

Not only will the heroes played by Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver be returning, but so will the much more memorable but much less alive villains played by Stephen Lang and Matt Gerald. And if you weren’t spoiled by the news that they died at the end of Avatar (the movie came out in 2009, keep up with the times) James Cameron revealed that Lang’s Colonel Quaritch will be the Big Bad for all four sequels.

isolation trailer

Look, Isolation: you kind-of, sort-of had me with “Stephen Lang is a modern day pirate and a pervert who holds a guy hostage with a corkscrew in one scene.” It’s a shame that the rest of the trailer for this upcoming thriller, which is being dumped direct to DVD and VOD in April, looks so bland. So very, very bland.

But guys: I’m not sure I can say no to Stephen Lang in a goofy hat and a tank top terrorizing Battlestar Galactica‘s Tricia Helfer. Help.

The four Avatar sequels turn Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) into a family man. Director James Cameron called the sequels “more of a family saga about the struggle with the humans.” In Avatar 2, Sully and his family visit unexplored parts of Pandora, according to Sam Worthington.

The actor recently talked about that eight-year gap in the story and the current shooting schedule. Below, read what Worthington had to say about Sully’s role in the first of the four Avatar sequels.

Don't Breathe red-band Trailer

Last month brought the horror thriller Lights Out to theaters, and plenty were terrified by the dark all over again. Now darkness looks to be even more terrifying in the forthcoming horror thriller Don’t Breathe. The film from Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez horrified audiences at the South by Southwest film festival earlier this year, and now it’s coming to theaters in just over a couple weeks. If the first teaser trailer wasn’t enough to unnerve you, then this new red band trailer should really push your buttons. There’s no nudity, just some blood and salty language, so it’s only a little NSFW. Read More »

Stephen Lang as Cable

Even though we know Deadpool 2 is officially in the works with director Tim Miller getting back behind the camera, there’s no official release date announced for the sequel just yet. However, the last update we got on Deadpool 2 was that the script was expected to be finished sometime soon with an eye towards production beginning on 2017. That means the sequel will likely end up hitting theaters in 2018, but it likely won’t have one cast member who was campaigning for a major role earlier this year.

Avatar star Stephen Lang previously took to social media to express his desire to play the mutant known as Cable in Deadpool 2, a character who has been a key rival and ally to the Merc with a Mouth at different points in the characters’ history. However, in a recent interview, the actor cast some doubt on whether he’ll actually end up with the role. Find out why we likely won’t see Stephen Lang as Cable in Deadpool 2 after the jump.
