    Review: '13' Remake Proves To Be One Unlucky Number (To Put It Mildly)

    It’s unfortunate, but there’s a Movie Content Hierarchy. Great filmmakers don’t pretend this exists -- Darren Aronofsky makes a horror movie and genre-hating critics love it, and former Fangoria mainstay David Cronenberg maintains his integrity and themes of perversion and body modification while becoming a boutique festival filmmaker. But more often than not, directors, screenwriter and producers are beholden to the unimaginative thought of “this is how it is meant to be done.” More specifically, films from other parts of the world, particularly smaller ones, have their own vocabulary, their own rhythms and idiosyncrasies. Gela Babluani’s “1...

    Antonio Banderas Says He Was Asked To Join 'The Expendables 2' But Didn't Have Time To Fit It In

    Nicolas Cage Won't Be In It & Probably Not John Travolta EitherEven though the meat-head heavy "The Expendables 2" is already in front of cameras, with the Ben Gay-sponsored cast ripping it up for next summer's blockbuster, rumors have still been floating about possible appearances in the film. One rumor picking up heat in recent weeks was the possibility of Nicolas Cage and John Travolta joining the cast. Well, we heard from Cage's reps who told us he was not going to be in the film, and reportedly the folks at Think McFly Think have learned that Travolta is out too. Bummer. But they're not the only ones who have been on Sly Stallone's lengt...

    Mickey Rourke And Kellan Lutz To Co-Star In Indonesian Actioner 'Java Heat'

    There's a long history of Hollywood plundering Asian action stars for their own, from Bruce Lee to Jay Chou, but aside from the occasional exception (who could forget Paul Rudd in "Gen-Y Cops?" Answer: everyone), the exchange rarely works the other way. But with investment from China and elsewhere b...

    Grumpy Old Tough Guys: Walter Hill In Talks To Direct Sylvester Stallone In 'Headshot'

    Hard to believe that over the course of their red meat-eatin' action careers, Sylvester Stallone and Walter Hill never crossed paths. Hill has directed the likes of Eddie Murphy, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and the immortal James Remar, but not once has he been associated with the headstrong...

    'Passion Play' With Mickey Rourke & Megan Fox Not Surprisingly Going Straight-To-DVD

    To put it quite simply: "Passion Play," starring Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox, was the worst film we saw at TIFF last year (though Dustin Lance Black's "What's Wrong With Virginia" comes a close second). Our man on the ground called it "a cliche-riddled, risible and utterly painful experience that bo...
