Kingpin MCU

Whether a character from DaredevilJessica Jones, or any of Marvel’s other shows could cross over into Marvel’s movies is just a matter of timing, Marvel chief Kevin Feige always says. If there’s one actor from one of those shows that’d like to make the jump, it’s Vincent D’Onofrio. The Kingpin actor admits, however, it’s “pretty much been said it’s not going to happen,” or at least not for a long, long time.

Below, read what else D’Onofrio had to say about the MCU.

CHiPs Trailer - Michael Pena and Dax Shepard

The more we see TV shows like Baywatch and CHIPs turned into movies, the more realization sets in that the success of 21 Jump Street as a quality comedy was a small miracle.

While Baywatch doesn’t look bad, it just seems to be trying too hard to have the same blend of R-rated comedy and action that directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller delivered wonderfully with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. And now we have the first CHIPs trailer, revealing Dax Shepard (who also directs the comedy) and Michael Peña as unlikely partners in the California Highway Patrol. And if Baywatch is trying to be 21 Jump Street, than CHIPs is trying even harder to be its cool PG-13 cousin.

Watch the first CHIPs trailer after the jump. Read More »

Emerald City trailer

If you’ve ever watched The Wizard of Oz and wished it played more like a low-rent version of Game of Thrones — or, conversely, if you’ve ever watched Game of Thrones and thought it could use some Wizard of Oz insanity — then Emerald City might be for you. The new NBC series from Tarsem Singh reimagines L. Frank Baum’s classic adventure as a grown-up fantasy drama. A young cop named Dorthy Game is whisked off to a far-off realm where she must contend with witches, warriors, sky portals, and Vincent D’Onofrio.

Watch the Emerald City trailer below.

Vincent D’Onofrio's Kingpin will Return

One of the best parts of Daredevil Season One was Vincent D’Onofrio as New York City crime lord Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin. The character had a significantly reduced role in the second season as Punisher and Elektra were brought into the mix. And now that Netflix has put Daredevil on hold to launch Luke Cage (which premieres on September 30th) and Iron Fist, leading into their 2017 superhero team-up event The Defenders, we don’t know if Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin will appear again in Marvel’s Netflix universe. But D’Onofrio seems to know that Kingpin will return, but he’s not saying when it will happen.

death wish cast

I’m still not sure if Bruce Willis is the right man to star in a remake of Death Wish. Hell, I’m still not sure if Death Wish is a movie that needs to be remade at all. And yet, I’m interested what a director like Eli Roth, a filmmaker with a penchant for getting really ugly, does with material this inherently dark and toxic. I’m especially interested now that he’s started filling out his supporting cast with character actors I would happily watch read the phone book. Vincent D’Onofrio and Dean Norris have joined the cast of Death Wish, which means the production has officially met its quota for stocky men who make that bald thing look really good.

Rings trailer

Not to be outdone by the Blair Witch, Samara is also mounting a return this fall. Paramount has unveiled the first trailer for Rings, starring Matilda Lutz and Alex Roe as the latest victims of that eerie video from 2002’s The Ring. And if you’re wondering how Samara’s curse could possibly continue in an era where no one watches VHS tapes anymore, you may be pleased to see she’s made some technological upgrades. Watch the Rings trailer below.

UPDATE: We’ve added a Rings international trailer below which contains a bit of new footage.

Magnificent Seven Trailer

Even though the blockbuster summer will be over in just a few weeks, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of excitement yet to come this fall. In fact, the arrival of the forthcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven looks just as good if not better than some of the best releases this summer has seen.

Denzel Washington rounds up Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Martin Sensmeier to help save a small town from a ruthless industrialist. In the new Magnificent Seven trailer, the whole crew gets a roll call with plenty of new footage to be glimpsed from the western action remake. Plus, there’s also an international trailer with a completely different cut that you can check out as well. Read More »

Denzel Washington;Chris Pratt

Yesterday brought us our first look at Antoine Fuqua‘s The Magnificent Seven in the form of some photos, and today the very first trailer has ridden into town. Denzel Washington leads the Western as Sam Chisholm, a gunslinger hired to protect a small town from a ruthless industrialist (Peter Sarsgaard). He rounds up a group of six other outlaws, played by Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Martin Sensmeier.

The Magnificent Seven is, of course, a remake of John Sturges’ 1960 classic, which was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. So how do the likes of Washington, Pratt, and Hawke stack up against the original all-star cast that included Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, and Charles Bronson? Watch the Magnificent Seven trailer after the jump.
