A couple of new character posters have been released for director Dean Parisot’s (Galaxy Quest) Red 2, a much-anticipated sequel to an indulgently fun summer blockbuster franchise.  The new posters showcase stars Bruce Willis and John Malkovich in all of their “retired” glory.  The sequel finds Frank Moses (Willis) pitted against Victoria (Helen Mirren) when M16 gives the go ahead to his assassination by declaring him Interpol’s “most wanted.” All the while, Moses and his team work to track down a missing nuclear device.  Mary-Louise Parker will return while Catherine Zeta Jones, Byung Hun, and Anthony Hopkins join the cast.

Although Red 2 looks indulgent (much like The Expendables franchise), we all can admit that we like to watch Willis blow stuff up and we enjoy seeing Malkovich, well, be himself.  Hit the jump to check out the new posters and to read the full synopsis.  Red 2 opens on July 19th.

We’re happy to debut three new images from director Jon M. Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation today.  The exclusive shots feature looks at Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, and D.J. Cotrona and in uniform, and one thing’s for certain after looking at these images: G.I. Joe is packed with some incredibly intimidating gentlemen.  The sequel’s story finds the Joes disbanded and outnumbered as they must square off against not only the Cobras, but also threats within their own government.  The trailers promise some incredibly theatrical fight sequences and ninja avalanches, so Retaliation should hopefully be quite the entertaining moviegoing experience.

Also starring Elodie Yung, Ray ParkByung-hun Lee, Ray Stevenson, Walton Goggins, RZA and Adrianne PalickiG.I. Joe: Retaliation opens in 3D on March 28th.  Hit the jump to view the new images.

New G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Featurettes Focus on Bruce Willis’ Joe Colton and Byung-hun Lee’s Storm Shadow

Two character featurettes for director Jon M. Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation are now available. One centers on the Joe’s namesake, Joe Colton (Bruce Willis) who re-enlists to join the team in their fight against Cobra.  While it’s fun to listen to Willis talk about playing with the titular toys as a kid, the really entertaining featurette centers on Storm Shadow (Byung-hun Lee).  We get to see a revisit of the origin story between Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes (Ray Park), plus commentary from Lee, Chu, Park and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Definitely worth a watch, especially since we get a previously-unheard bit of dialogue from RZA.

Also starring Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson and Adrianne Palicki, G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens March 28th.  Hit the jump to watch the featurettes.

The last weekend of March promises to be an exciting one. Not only do we get the return of Game of Thrones , but the long-delayed G.I. Joe: Retaliation finally blasts its way into theaters. A new minute-long clip from the film debuted online earlier today, featuring none other than Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis.

The clip’s not so very different from what we’ve seen in the various trailers and TV spots, though this clip shows a little bit more of the scene in which Willis’ Joe Colton announces his decision to reenlist. Oh yeah, and he’s got a pretty sweet pair of wheels too. Directed by John Chu, the film also features Channing TatumRay StevensonWalton GogginsRay Park, and, of course, a whole other host of ninjas.  Hit the jump to see the boys in all their badass glory. G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens in 3D on March 29th.

Joe Carnahan Doesn’t Have a DEATH WISH; Studio Wants Bruce Willis to Star

Last summer, macho director Joe Carnahan (The Grey) talked about his vision for a remake of Death Wish, but it looks like that view didn’t jibe with the studio.  As of August, Carnahan was still in the process of scripting the reboot of the 1974 movie starring Charles Bronson that kick-started a five-film franchise.  Originally based on the Brian Garfield novel of the same name, Death Wish centers on Paul Kersey, a man who becomes a vigilante after his wife is murdered and his daughter is sexually assaulted by muggers.  The studio wanted Bruce Willis to step into the role while Carnahan had other ideas, thus leading to a split over creative differences.  Hit the jump for more.

TOP 5: A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES Set Visit, VES Awards Interviews, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, Toy Fair 2013

Before I dive headfirst into what could be considered overselling to the “nth degree”, I have a disclaimer: I’m a total sucker for nostalgia-inducing, high school-centric, coming of age films. With that out of the way, I cannot recommend enough that you watch author/writer/director Stephen Chboksy‘s adaptation of his own novel, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, as soon as possible. The pic hit Blu-ray/DVD this past week and over the course of 24 hours I rented it, watched it, loved it, returned it (yes, somehow late fees are still a thing…), and purchased it for my own collection. I could go on and on about the emotional note the movie hit for me at every turn but I’ll spare you the fanboy torment. Suffice to say that I’ll be looking back fondly on this one for quite a while.

My “Blu-ray/DVD pick of the week” aside, this week’s installment features a week of Die Hard that includes Matt revisiting the entire franchise and A Good Day to Die Hard interviews with Bruce Willis and more, coverage from Steve’s visit to the set of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, a slew of video interviews from this year’s VES Awards including talks with Ang Lee and Wally Pfister just to name a few, Beautiful Creatures interviews with Emmy Rossum and more, and a healthy amount of images from the floor of Toy Fair 2013. Yep, you guessed it, a brief recap and link to each of the above can be found on the other side.

A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD Review

by     Posted 1 year, 63 days ago

a-good-day-to-die-hard-5-willis-courtney-koch

Over the last few days, I’ve looked back at the Die Hard franchise, and tried to explain what makes these films unique.  The obvious answer is John McClane (Bruce Willis).  Willis helped to craft a memorable character who was the wise-cracking, scrappy, desperate hero we can all root for.  But it’s not simply an attitude.  Die Hard is a matter of circumstance and response, and the two best films—Die Hard and Die Hard with a Vengeance—back McClane into a corner and force him to rely on his wits and strength to survive.  He gets the shit kicked out of him, swears constantly, but laughs in the face of near death.  John McClane’s personality lives in A Good Day to Die Hard.  Everything else dies horribly.

Dying Hard: Matt Revisits DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE

[With A Good Day to Die Hard set to open this Thursday, we'll be taking a look back at the first four Die Hard movies.  These reviews will contain spoilers since the movies have been out for years.  Click on the respective links for my look back at Die Hard and Die Hard 2.]

I like to consider Die Hard with a Vengeance the true sequel to Die Hard.  It’s bigger, bolder, darker, but still retains the same sense of desperation, humor, and intensity of the first movie.  Unlike Die Hard 2, the purpose of Die Hard with a Vengeance isn’t to copy the plot elements of the first film, but to take the spirit of the original and paint it on a broader canvas.  Die Hard with a Vengeance takes what could have been a stolid, safe entry, and instead shakes up the formula to keep John McClane (Bruce Willis) alive and kicking, which is impressive for a guy who should have died many times over.

Bruce Willis Talks A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, the Popularity of John McClane, Hans Gruber, SIN CITY 2 and Luc Besson

Opening this weekend is director John Moore’s A Good Day to Die Hard.  The fifth Die Hard film has John McClane (Bruce Willis) teaming up with his estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney), to settle their differences and take down the bad guys.   The film also stars Yulia Snigir, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Sebastian Koch, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn Echikunwoke, and Anne Vyalitsyna.

During the recent Los Angeles press day I got to speak with Bruce Willis.  We talked about how John McClane is one of the most popular characters in movie history, what McClane is up to in the fifth installment, how the first Die Hard had one of the best movie villains and that they never should have killed him, and more.  In addition, Willis talked about Sin City 2 and what it will take to get him to work with Luc Besson again.  Hit the jump to watch.

Dying Hard: Matt Revists DIE HARD 2

[With A Good Day to Die Hard set to open this Thursday, we'll be taking a look back at the first four Die Hard movies.  These reviews will contain spoilers since the movies have been out for years.  Click here for my look back at the first Die Hard.]

There wasn’t a shred of doubt that after Die Hard became one of the biggest hits of 1988, a sequel wouldn’t be far behind.  Two years later, Die Hard 2 (with the tagline “Die Harder”, although this is sometimes erroneously believed to be part of the title) opened and became one of the biggest hits of 1990.  But the rush came with a lack of ingenuity, and Die Hard 2 is mostly a retread.  Rather than focusing on John McClane (Bruce Willis) as the outsider, Die Hard 2 is about how he can’t catch a break.  It has to be due to the chronological proximity to the first movie.  However, while the sequel lacks originality, its biggest problem is misunderstanding the motives of McClane, and ignoring the conflict between his drive to do the right thing, and once again saving his wife.

Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney Face Off Against a Helicopter in New Clip from A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD

20th Century Fox has released a new clip from director John Moore’s sequel A Good Day to Die Hard, and it demonstrates exactly why it’s probably not a good idea to think you can best a helicopter full of guns.  Bruce Willis’s John McClane and Jai Courtney’s Jack McClane square off against said helicopter in this clip, giving fans a tease of the kind of action they can expect from the fifth film in the Die Hard franchise.  I’ll say this: the CG effects don’t look terrible.

Hit the jump to watch the new clip, and if you missed it click here to read the first entry in Matt’s ongoing Die Hard retrospective series.  The film also stars Sebastian Koch, Yulia Snigir, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn EchikunwokeAnne Vyalitsyna, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.  A Good Day to Die Hard opens Thursday, February 14th.
