    New On DVD-- "Blitz"; Rising Star Zawe Ashton Shares Screen With Heavyweights Statham, Considine

    First off, let me express my surprise at the fact that (what seems to be) a pretty decent Jason Statham (The Transporter, The Bank Job) flick is going straight-to-DVD. I saw the trailer for Blitz last spring, and I was sure that it would be another in his long line of profitable "shoot-em-ups". Ba...

    Will Donnie Yen Join 'The Expendables 2'?

    As "The Expendables 2" keeps moving toward a start date, the rumored casting for the elderly action flick continues unabated. It was just about a month ago that we got our last look at the proposed assembled team with Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis set to appear, and John Travolta and Chuck Norris as the supposed new names. However, curiously missing was Jet Li who played the somewhat offensively named Yin Yang, easily the most energetic member of the cast who was mostly squandered as the butt of the joke in the film. So it looks like Sly and co. are trying to find anot...

    Is So Much Choice Really Any Choice At All?

    So many people want to "keep their options open" as opposed to actually committing themselves to something they really believe in. We fill our shelves with 1001 variations and some people think it is freedom, but doesn't it just obscure the real problem that we haven't committed to what we really w...

    Sugar Ray Leonard - The Man Behind "Real Steel"

    Is there anyone who's anxiously waiting to see Dreamworks/Disney's film version of Rock 'Em Sock 'Em robots, aka Real Steel, which is coming out on October 7? I mean that seriously. Anyone at least over the age of 12, and not some 30 year old geek fanboy living in their parents basement, surrounded ...

    Caleb Landry Jones (aka Banshee) Joins Neil Jordan's Vampire Film 'Byzantium'

    No, "Byzantium" is not a sequel or something to Neill Blomkamp's "Elysium" but it's the name of ancient Greek city which just happens to also be the title of Neil Jordan's next film, and the director has just settled on his male lead for.

    Djimon Hounsou Is Abdiel The Angel Of Death In 'Paradise Lost'

    Actors don't come as talented or respected as Djimon Hounsou. The thesp has come a long way from popping up in Paula Abdul's "Straight Up" video, breaking out in Jim Sheridan's "In America," and lining up a diverse array of projects from blockbusters like "The Island" and "Constantine" to more dramatic fare like "Blood Diamond" and "The Tempest" and in the process, he's snagged himself two Academy Award nominations. While his most recent efforts seem to be in dodgy looking international pics like "White Elephant" and "Special Forces," the actor is ready to take on a pretty intriguing role in what is set to be a pretty ambitious literary adapt...

    Brit Nonso Anozie Cast In Season 2 Of HBO's "Game Of Thrones"

    I have to admit that I haven't watched a single episode of Game Of Thrones, despite how much praise it's received; it's been near-universal! And I'm a fantasy enthusiast, so you'd think I'd be all over it; nope, I haven't been. I also haven't read the literary work by George R. R. Martin that the TV...

    Eric Stonestreet To Play Fatty Arbuckle In Barry Levinson Directed 'The Day The Laughter Stopped'

    In the history of salacious Hollywood trials, none have matched the infamy of Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle's battle against charges that he raped actress Virgina Rappe at a boisterous Hollywood party (who died shortly afterward of peritonitis caused a ruptured bladder). It was essentially the first showbiz trial, one that found Arbuckle prosecuted in the press -- and later in court -- thanks to the relentless tabloid journalism of William Randolph Hearst's chain of newspapers, which painted the silent comedian as a lecher who used his girth to overpower women sexually. After three trials -- in which it became apparent that evidence was being manu...
