In 1982, Walter Hill directed '48 Hrs.,' with Nick Nolte as a loose cannon cop and Eddie Murphy as a fast-talking criminal. The oil-and-water chemistry worked, the movie was a hit, and an entire genre -- the buddy cop movie -- was born. Hill has had a long a varied career in Hollywood, directing tough, lean action movies and Westerns and producing the 'Alien' franchise, but '48 Hrs.' and the myriad imitators it birthed will always be his biggest legacy. That fact alone makes his new movie, 'Bullet to the Head,' interesting, since it's Hill imitating himself, with his first return to the genre since 1990's 'Another 48 Hrs.' The mixed results probably won't inspire a resurgence of buddy cop movies, but they're not terrible either, with enough Walter Hill flair to make some moments quite memorable, even if the movie as a whole has its problems.
'The Expendables 3' is in the works, whether you're excited for it or not. Perhaps the main reason to get excited for the flick is to see who Sylvester Stallone wrangles in to join the ensemble, other than Jackie Chan (rumored cast members have included Harrison Ford, Nicolas Cage to Clint Eastwood!) But perhaps even more crucial to the movie's success will be the man sitting in the director's chair. We're still awaiting word of the 'Expendables 3' director but John Woo, who at one point was unquestionably the most exciting conductor of action, says he "will do it"...
Sylvester Stallone is still flexing those ridiculous muscles of his in 'Bullet to the Head,' an action thriller directed by action vet Walter Hill, and the first poster for the 2013 release has just exploded online! Give it a look after the break!
First of all, yes, there's such a thing as 'Rocky: The Musical.' The show, which was produced by Sylvester Stallone, is expected to debut on Broadway in the spring but kicked off a test run in Hamburg, Germany last night under the name 'Rocky: Das Musical.' So are you curious what the heck a 'Rocky' musical sounds like? And if this thing could possibly be any good? Read on to find out answers to both.
Those 'Expendables' are still truckin'; despite being a combined age of 794 (well, roughly), the creaky action heroes are soldiering on toward 'The Expendables 3,' with Sylvester Stallone leading the charge. However, they just might be too old for this, um, stuff.
Stallone recently implied that the group will have to bring in new blood to keep going - and no, we don't mean a transfusion - we mean a new set of characters to shake things up and give the elder gentlemen a boost. So what does Sly have in mind? Find out after the break!
