Renner is the new Jason Bourne that isn’t Jason Bourne

Renner is the new Jason Bourne that isn’t Jason Bourne

It was reported earlier in the month but now it seems like a done deal. Deadline reports that Jeremy Renner is expected to sign on the dotted line for Universal’s The Bourne Legacy, the Matt Damon-less franchise continuation that no one really wanted. Of course, Renner wouldn’t be the Jason Bourne we all know but another pawn in the government’s […]

Rogen, McBride, Ferrell and Black take on the Beastie Boys in Fight For Your Right – Revisited

This is surely the most star-studded short film ever made. Fight for Your Right – Revisited answers that age-old question: what happened after the grand hootenanny detailed in 80’s classic “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)”? The supposed track on the long-awaited Beastie Boys album Hot Sauce Committee Part I is brought to stunning life by an all-star cast […]

Better late than never REVIEW: Scream 4 (2011)

Better late than never REVIEW: Scream 4 (2011)

In a way, the Scream franchise has always struggled to top that opening sequence in the first film. Drew Barrymore’s brief but instantly iconic tussle with Ghostface is a perfectly executed slasher set-piece that set a standard Wes Craven couldn’t match in the above-average Scream 2 and the much-maligned Scream 3. When a fourth film was announced, many were rightfully […]

Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds do the body swap in The Change-Up

Just what is Hollywood’s fascination with the antiquated body swap formula? Between Freaky Friday and It’s a Boy Girl Thing studios are close to mining the well dry. The Change-Up doesn’t look like it will offer a revolutionary spin on the concept but it has two likeable stars in Bateman and Reynolds. The reason for their predicament, hinging on a […]

Batman: Year One getting an animated movie

Batman: Year One getting an animated movie

Few graphic novels are as iconic as Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One. The seminal 1987 series greatly influenced Christopher Nolan’s take on the character, including that scene in Batman Begins when our hero summons his winged friends to help him out of a tight spot. Prior to Begins, a big screen adaptation of Year One had been rumoured for years, even passing […]

Tim Roth to direct another feature

Tim Roth to direct another feature

In the category of underrated actors, few are as versatile as Tim Roth. The former Mr. Orange looks set to make a long-overdue return to the director’s chair, following his 1999 début The War Zone (a lauded and little-seen film that comes highly recommended). The project is an adaptation of Marc Parent’s non-fiction book Turning Stones: My Days and Nights with Children […]

Leatherface will kill teenagers in 3D…

Leatherface will kill teenagers in 3D…

As if we needed another reminder of Hollywood’s creative bankruptcy… Bloody Disgusting received word that Lions Gate are pursuing a sequel to the Chainsaw franchise, last seen with the horrific remake prequel Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. Horrific in all the wrong ways, of course. Fittingly, this isn’t a continuation of the Michael Bay-produced reboot but a distant cousin of Tobe Hooper’s […]

Roles revealed for Cotillard and Gordon-Levitt in The Dark Knight Rises

With production ramping up on Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film, anticipation is slowly starting to mount…before a single second has even been shot. As soon as Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were cast, theories were tossed around by the fan community. Is she Talia al Ghul? Is he Alberto Falcone? Wrong on both counts. Wonder no more, as Warner Bros. issued the […]

“Totally awesome news, dude! Bill and Ted 3 is on the way!”

It’s not exactly hot off the press, but do I give a shit? Nope. All I care about is it’s recently been revealed by Den of Geek that the script for Bill & Ted 3 is currently being written by Chris Matheson & Ed Solomon, and both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are eager to reprise their roles as cult […]
