Avatar is the franchise that keeps threatening to coming back and it looks like its dead characters are undergoing that same fate.
Not only will the heroes played by Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver be returning, but so will the much more memorable but much less alive villains played by Stephen Lang and Matt Gerald. And if you weren’t spoiled by the news that they died at the end of Avatar (the movie came out in 2009, keep up with the times) James Cameron revealed that Lang’s Colonel Quaritch will be the Big Bad for all four sequels.

Look, Isolation: you kind-of, sort-of had me with “Stephen Lang is a modern day pirate and a pervert who holds a guy hostage with a corkscrew in one scene.” It’s a shame that the rest of the trailer for this upcoming thriller, which is being dumped direct to DVD and VOD in April, looks so bland. So very, very bland.
But guys: I’m not sure I can say no to Stephen Lang in a goofy hat and a tank top terrorizing Battlestar Galactica‘s Tricia Helfer. Help.

The four Avatar sequels turn Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) into a family man. Director James Cameron called the sequels “more of a family saga about the struggle with the humans.” In Avatar 2, Sully and his family visit unexplored parts of Pandora, according to Sam Worthington.
The actor recently talked about that eight-year gap in the story and the current shooting schedule. Below, read what Worthington had to say about Sully’s role in the first of the four Avatar sequels.

Last month brought the horror thriller Lights Out to theaters, and plenty were terrified by the dark all over again. Now darkness looks to be even more terrifying in the forthcoming horror thriller Don’t Breathe. The film from Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez horrified audiences at the South by Southwest film festival earlier this year, and now it’s coming to theaters in just over a couple weeks. If the first teaser trailer wasn’t enough to unnerve you, then this new red band trailer should really push your buttons. There’s no nudity, just some blood and salty language, so it’s only a little NSFW. Read More »
Even though we know Deadpool 2 is officially in the works with director Tim Miller getting back behind the camera, there’s no official release date announced for the sequel just yet. However, the last update we got on Deadpool 2 was that the script was expected to be finished sometime soon with an eye towards production beginning on 2017. That means the sequel will likely end up hitting theaters in 2018, but it likely won’t have one cast member who was campaigning for a major role earlier this year.
Avatar star Stephen Lang previously took to social media to express his desire to play the mutant known as Cable in Deadpool 2, a character who has been a key rival and ally to the Merc with a Mouth at different points in the characters’ history. However, in a recent interview, the actor cast some doubt on whether he’ll actually end up with the role. Find out why we likely won’t see Stephen Lang as Cable in Deadpool 2 after the jump.

Between Matt Murdock and Arya Stark, you’d think people would have gotten the message by now: underestimate the blind at your own peril. And after Avatar, everyone should definitely know better than to dismiss Stephen Lang. But perhaps the characters of Fede Alvarez‘s Don’t Breathe don’t get the same pop culture we do, because they make the very, very terrible mistake of trying to rob a blind man played by Stephen Lang, with predictably upsetting results.
Don’t Breathe took SXSW by storm this spring, and now the first Don’t Breathe trailer has arrived to show us just why this film scared those festivalgoers silly. Jane Levy (Evil Dead), Dylan Minnette (Goosebumps), and Daniel Zovatto (It Follows) star as the young and not-blind people who unwisely get tangled up with Lang. Read More »
Don’t Breathe revives one of the horror genre’s most convenient tropes: what happens when a group of genuinely rotten characters find themselves up against someone so much worse? It’s like a get-out-jail-free card for any filmmaker with a nasty streak, as they can proceed to punish the lead characters in unfathomable ways without asking the audience to feel too guilty for relishing in their suffering.
And director Fede Alvarez lays that suffering on with a heavy brush. Once Don’t Breathe finds its rhythm, it becomes one of the most relentless horror movies in recent memory, a non-stop assault that finds that fine line between crowd-pleasing and shit-your-pants terrifying. Alvarez already showed horror fans that he wasn’t kidding around with his vicious 2013 Evil Dead remake, but Don’t Breathe is his and his alone, proof that his brand of intensity can operate when removed from a beloved franchise.

20th Century Fox has already announced development of a Deadpool sequel, a decision they made before the first film had even hit theaters. Clearly the audience reaction from early screenings and critical buzz was enough to give the studio confidence in a sequel. Of course, this is the same studio that staked out a date for Fantastic Four 2, but ended up giving it the can when the first movie didn’t perform and was pretty much universally panned.
Thankfully, Deadpool is exceeding expectations at the box office, landing a record February box office haul of $135 million for the Presidents’ Day weekend and has been very well received by critics and audiences alike. So it sounds like Deadpool 2 is a forgone conclusion, and one actor is already campaigning for a pivotal role that was teased in the scene after the credits of the movie. Find out more below.

It’s been well over a century since Mark Twain first released Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn into the world of American literature, but their youthful spirit rages on in the first trailer for Band of Robbers. Written and directed by Adam and Aaron Nee, the indie film reimagines the classic all-American rascals as grown-up men in the modern day.
Huck (Kyle Gallner), fresh out of prison, is trying to go straight, but Tom (Adam Nee), now a crooked cop, drags him into a plot to find the treasure that eluded them in childhood. Other classic characters like Injun Joe (Stephen Lang) and Becky Thatcher (Supergirl‘s Melissa Benoist) also appear. Watch the Band of Robbers trailer after the jump. Read More »
A Good Marriage is based on Stephen King‘s novella from the Full Dark, No Stars collection, and it’s the first King screenplay to hit the big screen in a long time. The film stars Joan Allen, Anthony LaPaglia, Kristen Connolly, and Stephen Lang in a story about a woman who discovers that her perfect, loving husband is in fact a serial killer. Nice concept, but this first A Good Marriage trailer shows that it might falter in the execution. Check it out below. Read More »
