Fan Bingbing scandal

Normally, we probably wouldn’t have paid much attention to Air Strike, a small World War II thriller starring Bruce Willis. But the film was supposed to receive a theatrical release in China next week, and that has now been scrapped in the wake of the recent Fan Bingbing scandal, which we haven’t really covered yet on the site. Read on to learn about what’s been going on with one of China’s most popular actresses, and how the fallout has affected this movie.

the aftermath trailer

Only a week has passed since the last Keira Knightley period piece, and already another one is on its way. At this point, you’d expect the Colette star to have her hair in permanent early 20th century curls, with a corset at the ready in her closet. But she’ll only be needing the former in The Aftermath, a post-World War II romance drama also starring Alexander Skarsgard and Jason Clarke. See the first The Aftermath trailer below.

Overlord Review

Julius Avery’s Overlord – fatigue-green pulp torn from Wolfenstein video games and sinister sci-fi abominations – delivers *almost* exactly what the words “WWII Nazi Zombie Movie” dare to suggest. Shades of The Thing, Re-Animator, and countless hardcore horror influences mystify sledgehammer-heavy “grunts and grit” military warfare. No sacrificing “one or the other” when it comes to Saving Private Ryan tactics vs. slobbering 28 Days Later speed chases once Bill Ray and Mark L. Smith’s screenplay faces its ultimate breaking point. A massive, bloodcurdling, mangled-faces-and-exploding-heads reach to boil that’s always building. Always seething. Always ready to jump headfirst into (heavy) action.

For a movie that promises Nazi mad scientists and their creations lurking the halls of some creeptacular abandoned church, Overlord packs a superhuman punch that’ll leave a gaping cavity in your chest. Read More »

Overlord peek

So hello, new poster for the J.J. Abrams-produced World War II horror movie, Overlord. You are very cool and clever. Why can’t your peers be more like you?

a private war trailer

Rosamund Pike should have been launched to stardom following her chilling role in 2014’s Gone Girl, for which she received an Oscar nod. But alas, life is unfair and that didn’t happen.

We’ll have to wait and see.

War Pigs

A new World War II revenge thriller is in the works, and as is seemingly the new normal these days, any time a new war project is announced, Mel Gibson‘s name bounces around the fringes.

Welcome to Marwen Trailer

Last year Steve Carell put forth a fantastic performance in the Amazon Studios movie Last Flag Flying. Unfortunately, not enough people saw it to start any real awards buzz, but it’s an outstanding drama that’s worth your time. Apparently looking for some awards buzz yet again, Steve Carell is back with a much stranger dramatic turn, one that comes with an odd blend of comedy, tragedy and animation from director Robert Zemeckis.

Welcome to Marwen follows Steve Carell as Mark Hogancamp, a man who is attacked by a group of Nazi assholes (a prospect that is sadly all too real nowadays), leaving him with severe memory loss and some serious post-traumatic stress. In order to cope with the aftermath of this attack. Mark builds a miniature model of a town called Marwen where he lives out wild fantasies that give him the strength to face his struggles in the real world. It’s all rather surreal and odd, and you can watch the Welcome to Marwen trailer below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »
