Arnold Schwarzenegger has yet to star in a breakout hit since stepping down as governor of California. 'The Last Stand' and 'Escape Plan' were mostly disappointments, but Arnold has his best chance of success coming up with the action-thriller 'Sabotage' (formerly known as 'The Ten'). In fact, Arnold compares this movie to one of his best ever - 'Predator.' Get a first look at 'Sabotage' with a set of new photos below.
Edgar Wright is a busy man. His apocalyptic sci-fi comedy 'The World's End' hits DVD and Blu-ray today, loaded with an impressive lineup of special features (all curated by Wright himself). Not to mention, he's up very early, pulling double duty and talking to us while eating a quick breakfast, before heading Marvel's 'Ant-Man' production office to start what will begin a long process of making that superhero movie he's been patiently developing for over five years. It's the kind of workload that would make the more temperamental of his peers testy, but Wright is perpetually cheery and polite, even for a Brit.
Below, our chat about why it's important for him to have a great DVD and Blu-ray, his favorite 'World's End' scene that still makes him laugh and what it means to finally get to work on his Marvel movie.
From the 'Hustle' to the horror.
Oscar-nominated director David O. Russell, who is busy putting the finishing touches on this December's 'American Hustle,' revealed that we can soon see another project from him that he won't be directing. Russell has written a horror script that he says Eli Roth actually plans to direct.
Two weeks ago, we heard reports that Fox was developing a 'The Wolverine 2' with director James Mangold. This despite numerous reports from the summer that seemed to indicate that Hugh Jackman was done playing the character and ready to retire the claws after 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' But, now Jackman has spoken out for the first time since those reports and it sounds like he's had a change of heart and now he's excited to return as Wolverine for another adventure.
It's no secret that Ron Burgundy loves three things: poetry, a glass of scotch and his friend Baxter. We already have a Ron Burgundy book and Ron Burgundy's Scotchy-Scotch-Scotch ice cream, so it's time for Baxter to have his shot at the big time. Now 'Anchorman 2' director Adam McKay says he wants to work on a kid-friendly 'Anchorman' spinoff that would follow the adventures of Baxter and the son of Ron Burgundy.
We've seen some odd product placement/endorsement deals in our time, but this one just might take the cake. With a slogan that reads, "Give your little Anchorman the support he needs," 'Anchorman 2' and Jockey have teamed up for a series of Ron Burgundy-inspired tighty-whiteys. Except they're not white and come in colors like "Sex Panther Red" and "Beard of Zeus Blue."
When 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' opens in theaters next summer, Hugh Jackman will have starred as Wolverine in seven different movies. It's a feat few actors have done before (see: Leonard Nimoy, Daniel Radcliffe and Desmond Llewelyn) and impressive that an actor of Jackman's caliber would stick with one character for so long. But, as Jackman enters talks with 20th Century Fox for yet another movie (a follow-up to this summer's successful 'The Wolverine'), we have to ask, is it time for Jackman and Logan to part ways?
If you stuck around in theaters this weekend (and we're sure you did), you saw the 'Thor 2' post-credits scene and might have a few questions. (For the purposes of this article, we'll focus on the more interesting mid-credits scene and not on the sillier sequence at the very end.) So, who was that guy? And what is he talking about?
'The Wolf of Wall Street' doesn't hit theaters until Christmas, but the upcoming Martin Scorsese movie is already winning awards. The film's much-hyped teaser trailer won the Grand Prize at the Key Art Awards for Best Trailer of the Year. See what competition it beat out and let us know if you agree.
Over the years, Netflix has put a massive dent in DVD sales, and, if they have their way, they could be doing the same to theatrical movie ticket sales. The movie streaming/DVD rental service wants more than their library of available titles and original content: they want movies just a few weeks after they hit theaters. But, will it ever happen?
