Like all great action movie duos, Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw started out as mortal enemies. In The Fate of the Furious, they’re a perfect pair, the classic unlikely partners who once tried to kill each other but now have to team up for a greater good. Played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, they exhibit terrific chemistry in the new movie, enough that Universal is interested in giving audiences more of them. Exclusively. While Hobbs and Shaw are expected to return for the ninth Fast and the Furious installment, before that arrives we could be treated to a spinoff involving just those two characters, Deadline reports. Will they continue to get along for some new mission or will they wind up fighting again? Maybe a little of both? Certainly some more trash…Read More

Filmmakers can find inspiration in lots of places. Classical literature, plays, other films. Director Ben Wheatley, however, found the inspiration for Free Fire in two unlikely places: The comptuer game Counter-Strike and an FBI field report. Those obviously aren’t the only two influences on his movie about two gangs having one very long, very bloody shootout over a deal gone south, but they’re certainly integral to the DNA of the latest movie from the director of Kill List. As Wheatley told us, he based the location of the movie – which is largely set all in one space – on a Counter-Strike map that he’s been playing for well over a decade. Combine that single set location with an old FBI report Wheatley read about how actual shootouts go down, and you’re on your…Read More

While both major comic book publishers have gone to great lengths to make their stories accessible to new readers, sometimes the very stories they create to fill those needs don’t always have as low barrier to entry as they might think. In that spirit, here are a few single story recommendations to introduce an uninitiated fan into the world of superheroes, with this week’s edition focused on the characters at the “House of Ideas:” Marvel Comics, specifically as it relates to the characters and situations of Marvel Studios’ cinematic universe. Iron Man — “The Five Nightmares” by Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca Back in early 2008, few likely could’ve predicted just how big Iron Man would become after the introduction of the Marvel…Read More

Clint Eastwood made his directorial debut by helming The Beguiled: The Storyteller, a 12-minute documentary about director Don Siegel that was shot on location during production of The Beguiled, released in 1971. Sadly, it’s not been made available publicly since then. Eastwood directed his first feature, Play Misty for Me, later that year and steadily honed his talents on the big screen, even as he took on a wide variety of projects that reflected his personal interests. As both producer and director, he earned Academy Awards for Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby. In recent years he’s been increasingly attracted to real-life stories, such as Invictus, J. Edgar, Jersey Boys, American Sniper and Sully. Now he’s ready to take on another project that is drawn from…Read More

Long before the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Expendables and maybe even Planet Hollywood, Kurt Russell wanted to unite your favorite heroes. In a new interview promoting his role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the actor reveals that back in the day he pitched a movie where all the big action movie stars of the time — Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and others –would team up as their “one best,” i.e. their most iconic, action hero characters. “It was a little ahead of its time,” he tells Fox 5 DC entertainment reporter Kevin McCarthy. For his part, he would have reprised the role of Snake Plissken from Escape from New York. Even though that character probably wouldn’t be interested in working with any sort of…Read More
