Eric Walkuski Biography
As the summer dwindles away, so too do the big must-see movies of the season. We're in the home stretch now with the options getting slimmer and slimmer, but this weekend offers up one more highly anticipated sequel in the form of 'Kick-Ass 2.' When will you get your ass kicked by it?
Mark Wahlberg recently floated the concept of taking over the role of Tony Stark in the 'Iron Man'/'Avengers' films when Robert Downey, Jr. is (eventually) through with the gig. Can you picture Marky Mark donning the iron armor?
Bryan Cranston recently indicated that he would be more than happy to shave his head (again) to potentially play the villainous Lex Luthor in 'Man of Steeel 2.' While there's no concrete evidence to suggest he's been offered the job or that Luthor will even appear in the sequel, it's still a fun question to ponder. Would the man who broke bad so well on TV be an ideal nemesis for Superman?
If Bruce Willis wasn't feeling enough heat for his recent feud with Sylvester Stallone -- it actually isn't much of a feud since it's pretty one-sided -- the actor is sure to feel the glare of the spotlight a bit more now with his recent comments about the action movies for which he's so well known. He says he's now bored of explosions but still likes earning those big paychecks for running away from them.
'The Expendables 3' continues its casting blitz. Recently, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas were confirmed for the muscular sequel, joining fellow newcomers Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey and Victor Ortiz. Today another name has emerged, although this one isn’t quite as big. A young man by the name of Glen Powell.
By now you’ve likely heard the rumor that Marvel is set to offer Hugh Jackman approximately $100 million to reprise his Wolverine character at least four more times beyond 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' We all love Hugh, and we all love Wolverine, but we’ve still got to ask: Is Jackman as Wolverine really worth that kind of money?
This summer has been filled with question marks. We've seen a surprising number of films underperform, even when they looked for all the world like winners on paper. The latest is 'Elysium,' an ambitious, original sci-fi action film, starring bankable actor Matt Damon and directed by 'District 9' maestro Neill Blomkamp. It just debuted to a so-so $30 million, surprising since it appeared that it would provide the boost the summer box office has needed lately. So this begs the question: Why didn't 'Elysium' fare better?
Vin Diesel has been very coy when it comes to details regarding his ties with Marvel. He's teased possibilities before (is he starring in 'The Avengers 2'?!), but we've still yet to get anything resembling a confirmation. Well, we have now learned exactly what Marvel film he's joining, courtesy of the man himself. Is Vin lending his voice to one of the 'Guardians of the Galaxy'?
This Friday, Neill Blomkamp returns with the sci-fi action film 'Elysium', starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. How excited are you about the new movie from the director of 'District 9'?
The long-awaited (?) film adaptation of 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' is still trucking along, even though it has faced many obstacles during its journey to the big screen. The film cast Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer months ago, and now it has added a big-name supporting player: Hugh Grant.
