1999’s The Boondock Saints overcame bad reviews and an even worse box office performance to become a cult hit anyway, but The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day never achieved quite the same popularity as its predecessor. Put it this way: I’ve never heard a college kid declare the second Boondock Saints to be his favorite movie of all time.
Nevertheless, some fans have continued clamoring for a Boondock Saints 3, and director Troy Duffy has now offered some new details on what it’ll be called and what it’ll be about. Hit the jump for all Boondock Saints 3 plot details and more.

From black lights to best friends, Brooklyn’s Bottleneck Gallery is getting sentimental for their next pop culture art exhibit. It’s called I Love You, Man and is focused on friendships that are prevalent in film or television. Some examples: The Channel 4 News Team in Anchorman, the Ghostbusters, Ferris and Cameron in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Bill and Ted, The Boondock Saints, The Three Amigos, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid or Donnie and the Rabbit in Donnie Darko. Obviously, it’s a theme the gallery allowed to be twisted ever so slightly, but if you’ve ever dreamt of an Encino Man print, this is the show for you.
“I Love You, Man” opens at 7 p.m. Friday May 10 and will remain on display through May 26 at the gallery, which is in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York. Check out a nice, big sampling from the show below. Read More »

Even by cult film standards, Troy Duffy‘s The Boondock Saints is a divisive one. Defenders love the off-kilter McManus boys and their dedication to vigilante ultraviolence; detractors (myself included) find it to be Tarantino lite without any of the master filmmaker’s originality, intelligence, or soul. You need only look at the film’s 17% critics’ approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 93% user approval rating to see that all moviegoers are decidedly not on the same page here.
With the dismal box office performance of the 2009 sequel, The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, it started to look like public opinion had turned against the McManuses. But apparently, some fans remain convinced there’s still more territory to explore with the brothers. And not surprisingly, the director and stars are among them. According to The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus, who played Murphy, a Boondock Saints movie is being cooked up at this very moment. More after the jump.

Despite an initially awful reception both critically (19% on Rotten Tomatoes) and commercially ($30,471 domestic total gross), Troy Duffy‘s The Boondock Saints has become a huge cult hit over the past several years — enough to spawn a sequel in 2009, a comic book in 2010, and a documentary about Duffy in 2003. Now the Irish vigilantes may be getting a television series as well. Read on after the jump.
