It’s hard to know what to make of The Expendables franchise at this point—the first film, while it had its moments, felt a lot like the nondescript straight-to-VHS ‘80s films that it was trying to rise above; the second film felt more like what the first film wanted to be, i.e., an pretty stellar and satisfying men (and woman)-on-a-mission flick; advertisements...

Despite the fact that The Expendables 3 won’t be seeing a release until August 15, 2014, and the film itself just completed shooting this summer, we’ve already got a teaser trailer for a movie that is now still nine months away.  While it doesn’t showcase much action, it does show off the fact that the film stars just about every ‘80s action movie star ever (minus Bruce...

Mad Max: Fury Road may be a sequel/reboot to a franchise that’s been dormant for nearly 30 years, but we’re still pretty excited about it.  First off, the Mad Max franchise is just, well, awesome (OK, well, minus about half of Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome).  Second, if Mel Gibson’s road warrior Max had to be...

The Expendables - The Gang's All Here
After all the hubbub concerning Bruce Willis not being willing to sleepwalk his way through his The Expendables 3 cameo for anything less than $4 million, we finally have a full cast roster and plot summery for the third film in the aging-action-stars-punch-each-other franchise.  And, if the film is directed by Patrick Hughes with a willingness to laugh at itself,...

News has been coming down hard and heavy from the pre-production world of The Expendables 3, the sequel to—you guessed it—The Expendables and The Expendables 2.  First came the news that Bruce Willis was mysteriously bailing on the project, only to be somewhat shockingly replaced by Harrison Ford, of all people.  That was...

Edge of Darkness - Mel Gibson
Due in part to the fact that his age is advancing, and also because of the whole hating minorities thing, and just maybe because of laying the blame for every war ever on the feet of the Jewish populace, Mel Gibson has begun to slip into the career phase in which he stops playing the hero in films and instead gets stuck with being the villain.  Case in point: his turn as “eccentric arms...

There's been a lot of discussion over who will be playing the main villain in the upcoming sequel The Expendables 3, one that in some ways feels completely unnecessary. Nevertheless, the search continues for the villain, but it may be over if the latest rumor surrounding the action franchise is true. Word has it that Mel Gibson will be playing the...

'Machete Kills' Trailer: Danny Trejo Returns to Kill

If Robert Rodriguez's first Machete movie felt like a half good idea stretched a little thin, then his follow-up Machete Kills looks like a no budget remake. The first (minute-long) trailer announces the film's September release date, and shows Danny Trejo looking cool, and the film's list of name actors. But watching this it's hard to...

The Three Stooges
As the schedule for new releases seems to mirror that of their theatrical dates, we’re starting to see some of the spring films that either did okay, or completely missed at the box office. We’re also getting one of the best musicals of all time, and Martin Scorsese’s first masterpiece. Not that bad a week.

It looks like Machete Kills really is happening—after the news that such Hollywood trainwrecks as Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen have actually been cast together in the film, one almost had to wonder if it was all some strange fever dream on the part of director Robert Rodriguez, and not a real film.  However, thanks to a behind the scenes video courtesy of NuevOn, you can actually...

Because the Machete franchise has increasingly become a refuge for failed or disgraced stars—say hello, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson, and Mel Gibson—it makes complete sense that Charlie Sheen has been officially cast as the President of the United States in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete sequel, Machete Kills.

After news broke that Robert Rodriguez was inexplicably filming Machete Kills, a sequel to 2010’s Machete (itself a spin-off from a Grindhouse pseudo-trailer), the question became: who will show up to star in this thing?  A random cavalcade of stars showed up for the last one (Robert De Niro, Don Johnson, Lindsay Lohan); so far, Machete Kills has nabbed...

A sequel to 2005’s Sin City has been rumored and in discussion for so long it’s become a kind of urban legend—the kind of thing that people always talk about (especially director Robert Rodriquez and Sin City creator Frank Miller), but everyone knows would never really happen.  Well, that appears to no longer be the case, as Dimension Films has sent out an official...
