48 Hours to get the remake treatment from the makers of Good Time

45 minutes ago

Benny and Josh Sadfie are riding the wave of success off the back of the Robert Pattinson crime drama Good Time by signing on to remake Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte cop/convict buddy flick 48 Hours.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that comedian Jerrod Carmichael (NBC’s The Carmichael Show) will co-write the script along with Ronald Bronstein, who also wrote Good Time with Josh Safdie.

The Walter Hill directed 48 Hours was at the forefront of the R-rated buddy movie in the early 80s. It saw Murphy and Nolte play to type as wisecracker and gruff cop, who teamed up to hunt down a pair of cop-killers. The film was a huge hit at the time, grossing $79m at the domestic box-office.

With the recent confirmation of Lethal Weapon 5 it appears that the buddy movie could be making something of a non-ironic comeback. With this in mind, what other properties »

Dwayne Johnson compares Disney’s Jungle Cruise to Indiana Jones

4 hours ago

Dwayne Johnson is set to follow up his adventures in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle by returning to the wilderness for Jungle Cruise, based upon the Adventureland attraction at Disney theme parks.

While details on the plot are being kept under wraps, Johnson has been chatting to Entertainment Weekly about the project, revealing that he will be starring as the captain of a boat on the Amazon River.

“[It’s] full on adventure,” said Johnson. “Think Indiana Jones — those kinds of adventures. I’m very, very excited about it. This is where I really started to understand the power of Disney, just in terms of the deep dives that they do with their projects — with all of their projects. Because obviously they’re a studio and publicly traded, but specifically with projects like this where it’s based off a ride and based off an beloved attraction, like Pirates of the Caribbean, »

Stranger Thing star Joe Keery will shave his head if David Harbour wins a Golden Globe

5 hours ago

Joe Keery, one of the stars of Stranger Things, has said that he will shave his head if co-star David Harbour wins a Golden Globe.

Stranger Things is of course a huge hit for Netflix, and Keery, whose character Steve started out as a quasi-antagonist, has quickly become a fan favourite, thanks to his charm, humour, and impressive 80s hair.

One of his co-stars on the show, David Harbour, has recently received a Golden Globe nomination for the role of Jim Hopper. Apparently finding this quite unbelievable, Keery commented on one of Harbour’s Instagram posts about the nomination, saying, “If you win David the Duffer’s get to shave my head.”

This would of course be a big deal for the fan base and one audience member commented on the same post in response to Keery, saying: “If you let them do this you will break the hearts of so many fans. »

Disney’s Bob Iger says Marvel could make R-rated Deadpool movies

6 hours ago

It was officially announced earlier today that The Walt Disney Company has reached a deal with 21st Century Fox to acquire its movie and TV properties, which – as the official press release stated – “provides Disney with the opportunity to reunite the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool with the Marvel family under one roof and create richer, more complex worlds of inter-related characters and stories that audiences have shown they love.”

While this is of course music to the ears of fans who have longed for a fully-fledged Marvel universe with all of the characters under the same roof, it did immediately raise questions about whether Disney would follow Fox’s successful formula of R-rated superhero movies, with fears that the likes of Deadpool would be “watered down” to PG-13 to fit with the established Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Well, it seems that may not be the case after all, as Disney »

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 9 Review – ‘Silent Night, Deadly Night’

8 hours ago

Liam Hoofe reviews Riverdale season 2’s midseason finale…

It’s Christmas in Riverdale which means this week we were treated to the show’s Christmas special, which also doubled up as its midseason finale.

Gang violence, serial killers and illegal money activities are all stapes of a traditional Christmas, and Riverdale revelled in these this week with ‘Silent Night, Deadly Night.’ The episode’s key talking point was definitely the much-anticipated reveal of The Black Hood, who, after weeks of lurking in the shadows, was finally revealed this week as…. the janitor. Seriously? There is no way that Mr Svenson is the Black Hood – even for a show like Riverdale, it makes zero sense. Why would he chop off his own finger? How would he know about Betty’s childhood? Whatever happened to his green eyes?

The reveal felt like a cop-out, but I think it’s nothing more than a red herring. »

The Walking Dead star Chandler Riggs has revealed when he learned about the demise of his character Carl.

Carl is one of the few original characters left from The Walking Dead season one; over the years, faces have come and gone, but Rick’s son has managed to hang on.

This season, however, we discovered that Carl is not long for his world, having been bitten by a zombie a few episodes prior to the mid-season finale. Rigg’s father wasn’t very happy about development, but the actor himself was a little calmer about his exit.

Speaking to the AMC website (via ComicBook.com) Riggs revealed when he learned that Carl would be leaving the show:

“I was super surprised. I was not expecting it at all,” Riggs admitted. “I don’t think any of the fans were expecting it. I found out during rehearsal for Episode 6, which was back around June. »

Disney’s acquisition of Fox is good for the McU, but bad for the movie industry

11 hours ago

Tom Beasley looks at the positives and negatives of Disney buying up the assets of 20th Century Fox, and what that means for cinema…

After weeks of speculation, it has finally happened. Disney has acquired Fox’s entertainment assets, including its film and television studios. The massive deal, which is certainly one of the biggest in the history of the industry, is officially valued at $66.1 billion. In their predictably fluffy statement to the press, Disney bosses said the deal would “combine some of the world’s most iconic entertainment franchises”.

The question is whether this is ultimately a good or a bad thing for the world of film and TV. The answer, of course, is a bit of both.

The most eye-catching element of the deal is the prospect of uniting Fox’s superhero properties with those of Disney. Many of the characters held under the X-Men movie umbrella have »

The Worst Movie Action Scenes of 2017

11 hours ago

Harrison Abbott on the worst movie action scenes of 2017…

In Absentia Luci, Tenebrae Vincunt – In the Absence of Light, Darkness Prevails.

Likewise, in the absence of competence, asinine garbage will invariably triumph. Which means that for all the recent advancements in cinematic technique and film-making technology, you can always count on some hack to drop the ball.

Make no mistake, professional ineptitude will never go out of fashion. Which brings us nicely to the second (and much angrier) segment of our review of 2017’s movie set pieces. In the last part, I was uncharacteristically positive and complimentary, so in an effort to restore the natural order, here are the Worst Action Sequences of the year.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter – Alice vs Isaacs

This concluding instalment in the much derided series was, for the most part, endearingly stupid. Like a drunk baby. By leaning heavily on telenovela-worthy tropes, including amnesia, »

Peaky Blinders Season 4 Episode 5 Review – ‘The Duel’

12 hours ago

Liam Hoofe reviews the fifth episode of Peaky Blinders season 4…

With 2017 drawing to a close, Peaky Blinders is making a late surge to make it on to our ‘top 10 of the year’ lists. The season’s fifth episode ‘The Duel’ was another tightly packed, high-octane thrill ride that set the show on course for an explosive finale next week.

The show started as it meant to go on, with Luca Changretti and his men ambushing Tommy, only to discover that they had been set up by him and Polly. The sequence was perfectly executed and a thrill to watch. Tommy managed successfully to box in the Italians, coming face to face with Changretta in one of the episode’s most tense moments. Of course, though, we are going to have wait for their big final showdown until the next episode, and this week’s collision was halted by the arrival of the local police. »
