‘The Expendables 4' Set to Begin Filming Next Year For a 2017 Release Date

by Mike Sampson 4 days ago
The Expendables 3 was not a big hit. Despite packing in even more all-star action heroes, the film topped out at just $35 million (down from over $100 million for the original). But, the Expendables franchise is still popular overseas and, as we’ve seen recently with Pacific Rim and Terminator Genisys, sometimes that’s enough to keep sequel hopes alive. To keep The Expendables going, Lionsgate has pacted with SSXH Beijing for investment in The Expendables 4, which is now planned to go into production in 2016 for a release some time in 2017.

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Creed, the latest installment in the Rocky franchise, which sees Michael B. Jordan taking the leading role and getting into the ring.

‘Ratchet and Clank’ Movie Acquires Vocal Talents of Sylvester Stallone, John Goodman and Paul Giamatti

by Jacob Hall May 13, 2015 @ 11:23 AM
It’s not surprising that an animated movie based on Ratchet and Clank is happening – the popular video game franchise has spawned 14 official entries and spin-offs since 2002. It’s especially not surprising that that the film has cast the likes of Sylvester Stallone, John Goodman, Paul Giamatti, and Rosario Dawson – every animated movie is chock-full of big names these days. The real surprise to come out of this news is just how much the upcoming film crosses over with the video game talent.

New ‘Creed’ Image Shows Rocky Balboa Back in the Ring

Hey yo, Internet, check this out, y’know? It’s like the first picture from the set of Creed, the new Rocky spinoff about the son of Rocky’s greatest rival and best friend, Apollo Creed, who decides to follow in his father’s footsteps and enter the fight game. Eventually he comes to Rocky and asks him to become his trainer; the way Mickey was a mentor and teacher to Rocky. Thus the circle is complete; the student becomes the teacher, the son becomes the father. This is some profound stuff, dudes.

‘The Expendables’ TV Series in Development at FOX

by Kevin Fitzpatrick March 5, 2015 @ 12:47 PM
The success of FOX’s 24: Live Another Day event series got the ball rolling on a number of other ideas, from The X-Files to Enourmous, but their latest short-burn effort is even more expendable. Sylvester Stallone is reportedly developing a limited series TV rendition of The Expendables, uniting some of TV’s biggest stars for a new action-drama.

The ‘Creed’ Synopsis Suggests Rocky Balboa May Be Down for the Count

by Matt Singer February 25, 2015 @ 12:50 PM
The last Rocky movie, 2006’s Rocky Balboa, turned out about as well as humanly possible for a story about a former heavyweight champ getting back into the ring at the age of 60. That Rocky Balboa was watchable at all was a credit to Sylvester Stallone’s skills as a director, writer, and star, and to the enduring appeal of the Rocky character. It was a triumph of strong execution over a weak premise.

Sylvester Stallone Promises More ‘Rambo’ (After He First Makes More ‘Rocky’)

by Matt Singer December 30, 2014 @ 3:29 PM
“Nothing is over!” These are the words of Col. John J Rambo, the hero of ‘First Blood’ (better known as ‘Rambo’) and then ‘Rambo: First Blood Part II’ and then ‘Rambo III’ (the only one people call by its actual title and then ‘Rambo’ (better known as ‘Old Rambo’). After what basically amounts to a movie-long chase, ‘First Blood’ concludes with a heartfelt speech from star Sylvester Stallone, explaining how nothing (meaning the Vietnam War) is over for him; that his mind is too scarred from his brutal deeds and by the cruel treatment he’s received on the homefront. It’s a powerful (if occasionally incomprehensible) scene.

‘Expendables 4' Will Return to R Rating, Possibly Include Time Travel

by Mike Sampson November 24, 2014 @ 9:51 AM
‘Expendables 3’ was not a hit; there’s no way around that. After the first film grossed over $100 million, the second grossed $85 million and the third, a paltry $35 million. Most of us would probably point to the fact that the ‘Expendables’ franchise was never made up of particularly good movies and eventually that wore thin with audiences. Sylvester Stallone would prefer to deflect the blame elsewhere though: the film’s PG-13 rating. He says that when ‘The Expendables 4’ happens it will ditch the PG-13 rating and go back to it’s gritty R-rated roots. Also, there's going to be an ‘Expendables 4'??
