Chad Stahelski interview

The summer movie season will remain abuzz after the triumphant arrival of John Wick: Chapter Three – Parabellum. If ever a movie could be a mic drop, it’s the latest chapter of everybody’s new favorite killing machine and dog enthusiast, John Wick. The sequel has it all, starting with another performance from Keanu Reeves that leaves a big fat mark on pop culture.

Director Chad Stahelski attributes the success of the franchise to Reeves, whom he’s been working with ever since The Matrix. When Stahelski says the actor is giving every frame his all in this movie, nobody could ever question that. Reeves brings a believability to the poetic and ridiculous action, a sincerity to the drama, and a powerful presence and sense of ownership to the role. In another actor’s hands, John Wick, as we’ve come to know and love him, wouldn’t be John Wick.

During our wide-ranging interview with Stahelski following the franchise’s biggest opening at the box-office yet, he told us why audiences connect with Reeves as Wick, how he always goes for beauty in his movies, how he shoots action, and more.

With some actors, it’s all in the eyes. Some performers need dialogue to boost their work, and others are able to use their physicality to get across some emotion, whether it’s happiness or sadness or fury or anything in between. But an actor who can just use their eyes to communicate a world’s worth of information is hard to find, and hard to top.

Such is the case with Ian McShane, who’s got himself a couple of major showcase parts out this month that represent the extreme depth he brings to any role, in the gun-fueled fantasia John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and the long-awaited revival of the drama that gave him a breakout part, Deadwood: The Movie.

deadwood the movie review

After more than a decade, it’s time to ride back into Deadwood one final time. Creator David Milch has made good on his promise to conclude his Shakespearian Western, bringing back nearly every character audiences grew to love and hate over the three seasons of the original show. The end result is sweet and melancholy, and definitively finite. The impending future is a running theme through Deadwood: The Movie – a constant reminder to these aging characters that you can’t move forward without burying the past in a shallow grave.

hellboy clip

The first official Hellboy clip has been released, and if you’re already on the fence with this movie, I don’t know if this is going to change that. Here, Trevor Bruttenholm (Ian McShane), adoptive father of Hellboy (David Harbour), lays out a new mission for the big, red demon/superhero. Through it all, Hellboy talks with his mouth full, which is kind of gross. Watch the Hellboy clip below!

deadwood movie plot

After years of waiting, the Deadwood movie is almost here. I still can’t believe it myself, and I probably won’t fully accept it until I’ve actually sat down to watch it. For now, though, I can take solace in some new plot details from Al Swearengen himself, Ian McShane. McShane reaffirmed some things we’ve heard already: that the movie is all about the passage of time, and how much the surviving characters have changed since we last saw them. Get the Deadwood movie plot details below.

deadwood movie photos

When it comes to the Deadwood movie, I’ve always maintained a “I’ll believe it when I see it” mentality. The film follow-up to David Milch‘s Shakespearian Western has been talked about for so long, that I started to think it would never happen – even when everyone involved said that it definitely was. Now I think I can finally start to accept reality, because the first Deadwood movie photos have surfaced, proving that yes, it’s really happening.

deadwood movie production

Tell your god to ready for blood, because it’s finally happening. HBO has announced the Deadwood movie has officially begun production, and the original cast is returning. There have been talks of a Deadwood movie ever since the original show went off the air in 2006. As the years ticked on, it seemed less and less likely that we’d ever return to the foul-mouth world of David Milch‘s anti-Western. But now, it’s really happening.

american gods season 2 trailer

American Gods has gone through some problems behind-the-scenes, but a season 2 trailer has arrived intact. The show, based on the book by Neil Gaiman, follows ex-con Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), who gets mixed up in a plot involving old and new gods wandering the earth. This is a curious trailer, because it spends most of its runtime explaining the plot from season one – almost as if Starz is essentially rebooting the show. Watch the American Gods season 2 trailer below.
