When the first look at the new Death Wish remake brought to us by Eli Roth dropped yesterday the world didn't seem to react much. We'd only seen four images plus an interview with Roth but everything he was saying sounded like every other action movie that is out there right now. Now we have […]
There is a remake for Death Wish coming out this November and it stars one of the premiere action heroes; Bruce Willis. Willis, however, hasn't had a major box office success in quite some time and the movie is being directed by Eli Roth who is known for horror and gore and not action. Yahoo […]
Last Week Tonight's man main John Oliver is joining the great Disney circle of life, and the casting is perfect. Jon Favreau, hot off the success of his live action remake of the Disney animated classic The Jungle Book is bringing the sunbaked world of Pride Lands to life in his next adaptation, The Lion King. It sure looks […]
When you make a movie like Logan a huge critical and commercial success you can pick and choose what projects you want to take on next. It's the type of freedom that is rarely awarded to director and James Mangold appears to be in that position. According to The Tracking Board Mangold has signed on […]
Bleeding Cool was the first news site to mention the existence of the E4 superfiction TV show Misfits and to review it, so I've always felt a little connected. We also were the first to tell you that iZombie's Diane Ruggiero-Wright was to be the showrunner on the ABC/Freeform remake as well as writing the pilot episode – […]
Well that didn't take long – Resident Evil: The Final Chapter released on blu-ray and dvd on May 16th. As of this writing, that's 5 days ago. Less than a week. And now there's word from Variety that German production house Constantin Film is planning to do an original 6-film franchise, effectively rebooting the whole thing […]
Yesterday, we told that iZombie TV show co-creator/producer and Veronica Mars alumni Diane Ruggiero-Wright was behind the new US remake of Misfits. Today, we get a look at that first script. How does it stand up? Well the language has been toned down, the first UK series began with the memorable "I'm gonna kick you so hard […]
We've known for two years that Fox is working on a reboot of the John Carpenter classic originally starring Kurt Russell, Escape From New York. Finally, we have some details on what we can expect from the film, according to an EXXXCLUSIVE report from sandwich-themed Hollywood gossip blog The Wrap. Written by Luther creator Neal […]
When Resident Evil HD Remake came out, a lot of fans were expecting Resident Evil 2 to be the next game to get the treatment. Alas, it was the more obscure Resident Evil 0 next up for the up-rez, leaving some a little disappointed. Here is something else to tide you over until Capcom one […]
I dare say this image is about to go viral across the web. All credit to the sly fellow who supplied it to us. It's the first look at the rebooted Danger Mouse. Well, DM looks a little more posh, somehow, than the original. Penfold looks… identical. Nice way to riff on the 007 iris […]
Not only is José Padilha's reboot of Robocop (and I feel that reboot is more applicable than ever) on UK shelves today, it was also in the Bleeding Cool letterbox. Along with this t-shirt and Bluetooth headset. A far preferable option to having cybernetic functions actually drilled into the skull. We rather liked this movie, not […]
Ghostbusters 3 isn't the only old rehash on deck.
How many monsters are in this thing? What is its relation to Gojira (1954)? And... Rodan!?
The Clint Eastwood role has gone to Ken Watanabe, who is absolutely a match for his American counterpart.
So, now we know: Cyborgs dream of electric Sinatras.
Fargo isn't the only greta 90s movie getting a TV do-over this year, with From Dusk Till Dawn providing Robert Rodriguez's new El Ray Network with what should be, I think, its first proper draw. Everybody has been recast, by the looks of things. I think we'll soon get over that – but will the […]
For most of its running time, this new trailer for the Robocop do-over shows us that there's a man at the centre of this machine. I'm glad they've made space for this message in the marketing – not least because it bodes well for the tragic story of Alex Murphy's exploitation being a well-explored part […]
Small changes can make all the difference, especially if they happen in large numbers. We might see Metastasis take on a whole life of it's own.
What's next, a remake of Mamma Mia?
Still my preferred Chan Wook Park movie, Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance is one of the most brilliant emotional gymnasiums I have ever come across.
