David Leitch Interview

Don’t say the word “grounded” to director David Leitch. The filmmaker behind Atomic BlondeDeadpool 2, and most recently, Hobbs & Shaw, wants his big blockbusters to live in a fantasy land far, far away from gritty reality. He wants his escapism to look cool and stylish, not familiar. It’s probably why his sensibilities were suited for the Fast & Furious franchise, which are basically superhero movies with cars instead of capes.

Hobbs & Shaw is probably the most fantastical entry in the series, with minor elements of science-fiction and superhuman acts performed by the titular duo. Realism has no place in this franchise, which allowed Leitch to have as much fun as possible with all the franchise’s toys and staples. While staying true to the family spirit and ridiculousness of the franchise, Leitch also brought his eye-popping graphic novel style to the Fast & Furious franchise.

Recently, at a press day for the Hobbs & Shaw Blu-Ray release, the filmmaker told us about bringing his style to the series, his fondness of John Woo and Jackie Chan, and his distaste of the word “grounded.”

But times, they are a-changin’, as the highest paid actor of 2018 didn’t even star in a movie last year, and several of the top spots went to actors who worked exclusively with streaming.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Bleeding Steel Trailer

While Jackie Chan may not be as popular in the United States these days as he was during the late 1990s and early 2000s, he’s still churning out plenty of action movies over in his native Hong Kong. Chan may not be a box office draw here in the US, but every now and then one of his movies ends up getting a domestic release, and his latest looks completely bonkers.

Bleeding Steel stars Jackie Chan as a Hong Kong police inspector named Lin, but what’s crazy is that the enemy he’s facing is some kind of technologically enhanced man who looks like one of the Borg crossed with Batman & Robin‘s Mr. Freeze and employs an army that looks like they’re from the grid in TRON Legacy. Apparently, what he needs to survive is some kind of bio-chemical, artificial heart that just so happens to have been implanted in Lin’s missing daughter.

Yeah, we’re totally on board for this nonsense. Read More »
