The ‘Die Hard 6’ Title Is Now ‘McClane’

Die Hard 6 title

Die Hard 6, the unnecessary Die Hard prequel/sequel, has a new name. The working title for the latest Bruce Willis action flick was Die Hard: Year One, but you can now officially call the movie McClane. The film will follow both the present-day John McClane in his 60s, and a younger, 20-something McClane just starting out on the force.

Bad Times at the El Royale interviews

In June, I visited Lake Tahoe, California to attend an early press day for Bad Times at the El Royale, a new crime thriller from writer/director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods). That’s the setting for the new film, a mystery that unfolds in 1969 and centers on a run-down motel on the state line between California and Nevada. That duality is an integral part of the movie – characters aren’t always what they seem, and their shaky allegiances can switch sides in an instant when things go wrong (and naturally, things go very wrong).

During the junket, I jumped in a small boat and was taxied out to a yacht on Lake Tahoe, where I interviewed Goddard about why surveillance plays a large part in his movies, how he makes movies that reveal more layers on multiple viewings, and more. I also had the chance to speak with stars Jon Hamm, Dakota Johnson, and Jeff Bridges about the details in Goddard’s script, how the setting informed their physicality, and a lot more. Read More »

Drew Goddard gives new meaning to the term “hotel horror stories” with the trailer for his stylish new thriller, Bad Times at the El Royale.

The Predator Featruette

The Predator is getting closer to theaters, and its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival is even sooner. That means 20th Century Fox is ramping up their marketing campaign to get butts in seats for the revival of the franchise that kicked off all the way back in 1987.

A new The Predator featurette goes behind the scenes of the film’s set to talk with co-writer/director Shane Black and his ensemble cast about bringing the galaxy’s most feared hunter back to the big screen. Plus, the cast also has some fun predicting whether The Predator would win in battles with some of pop culture’s most iconic characters and creatures, and a new TV spot gives us a taste of the new hell hounds that will give the film’s characters some trouble.

The Predator box office tracking

Shane Black‘s The Predator is using the titular alien’s triangular laser targeting system to zero in on a $25-$30 million opening weekend for the upcoming sci-fi sequel. That’s a far cry from Iron Man 3‘s gigantic opening, but a significant improvement over Black’s previous film, The Nice Guys. Read more about The Predator box office tracking below, and see how the sequel stacks up against the other movies in the franchise. Read More »

The 20 Best Marvel Movies of the Last 20 Years

In recent years, the sheer wealth of Marvel movies being released — including but not limited to entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — has made ranking Marvel superhero films an annual tradition. The /Film staff most recently came together in May 2017 to compile a vote-based list that reflected the tastes of the site’s contributors as a collective. Since then, a number of films that would qualify as top-tier Marvel have hit theaters.

The 1998 superhero vampire flick Blade starring Wesley Snipes doesn’t inhabit the same upper echelon as any of those, but historically, it’s significant as a forerunner of the modern superhero film and the first decent Marvel movie we ever got. Prior to Blade, the superhero film genre was still in its nascent form and Marvel could only watch from the sidelines as its “Distinguished Competition,” DC Comics, enjoyed an early run of success with Superman and Batman on the big screen.

This week marks Blade’s 20th anniversary and that’s as good an excuse as any to offer an updated ranking of both the best MCU and non-MCU films. This ranking isn’t the Word of God but rather a subjective list from one friendly neighborhood Marvel librarian who grew up frequenting the comic book store on new-release Wednesdays and who now turns up as early as possible at the theater to see the latest Marvel movie releases.
