If you’re looking forward to The Expendables 3, you’re about to be very happy.  Not only did Lionsgate provide us with a new Expendables 3 image featuring Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Sylvester Stallone, director Patrick Hughes, Wesley Snipes, Randy Couture, and Jason Statham, tomorrow morning my set visit embargo lifts so you can expect more photos, my set visit wrote up, and great interviews with the cast.  While I can’t say too much until tomorrow, just know that the movie looks like a very fun action flick and the new cast should add a lot to the picture.  I also cannot wait to see Mel Gibson fighting Stallone.

TOP 5: DRAFT DAY, Early Reactions to THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, Colbert Replacing Letterman, Drew Goddard Directing THE SINISTER SIX, STREET FIGHTER: ASSASSIN’S FIST

by     Posted 5 days ago

collider-top-5-sliceFor the first time that I can remember since I started writing for Collider in 2010, director Peter Weir‘s The Truman Show made headlines this week when we learned that Paramount is developing a TV series adaptation of the film. While I won’t waste any space today discussing my feelings on the adaptation (mostly because there aren’t any real details to dissect as of now), I will absolutely take this opportunity to talk about my adoration of the film. The Truman Show ranks among my all-time favorites with ease and, if pressed to name a lone favorite, it would likely make that cut too. I actually didn’t watch it until my second year of college, circa 2007, but I credit that first viewing as a benchmark cinematic experience for me; one that helped me begin to understand the impact that a movie could have on a person’s outlook and perception of the world around them. I would eventually go on to dedicate my graduate school research to the film, during which I watched it at least 15 more times; wrote this semi-boring perceptual effects analysis; and wrote/recorded this somewhat less boring seven song record. On paper, these projects were a way to fulfill requirements towards my degree. In reality, it was an excuse to delve further into the headspace of a work that, for all intents and purposes, changed my life.

All personal reflections aside, this week’s Top 5 features interviews for and Matt’s review of Draft Day, early reactions to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the announcement that Stephen Colbert will replace David Letterman on CBS’ The Late Show, Sony selecting Drew Goddard to direct The Sinister Six, and the first look at Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist. Keep reading for a brief recap and link to each of the above.

Opening this weekend is director Ivan Reitman‘s sports drama Draft Day.  The film takes place within the span of one day, the day of the NFL draft, as Kevin Costner plays a general manager who has the opportunity to save football in Cleveland when he trades for the number one pick.  As the day’s events unfold, he finds the lines between his personal and professional life becoming blurred.  Draft Day also stars Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary, Josh Pence, Chadwick Boseman, Sean Combs, Sam Elliott, Terry Crews, Arian Foster, Ellen Burstyn, and Frank Langella.

At the Los Angeles press junket I landed an exclusive video interview with Crews and Foster.   They talked about getting to work with Costner and Reitman, if they had to do any research for the role, not wanting to make a puff piece for the NFL, Crews’ Expendables 3 poster, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Lionsgate has released a roll call/teaser trailer for The Expendables 3.  While this footage bills this outing as the “last” time, I have trouble believing that.  But that’s a concern for the future.  Right now, this teaser provides the first footage from the movie (explosions!), and mostly provides a roll call of the many, many tough guys (and gal) populating the movie.  But that’s fine since The Expendables movies are more about a stacked cast than anything else.

Hit the jump to check out the The Expendables 3 teaser trailer, and click here to see some of the character posters/glamour shots.  The film stars (deep breath) Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kelsey Grammer, Antonio Banderas, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, and Glen PowellThe Expendables 3 opens August 15th.

Last year, when director Patrick Hughes’ The Expendables 3 was filming in Bulgaria, I got to visit the set with a few other online reporters.  While I’ve been able to visit a number of movie sets while running Collider, I’ve never been to a set with so many physically intimidating stars.  As most of you know, the next installment has Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.  Returning for the sequel are Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Harrison Ford joining the cast along with Kellan Lutz, Glen Powell, MMA star Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz.

With the film getting released on August 15th, Lionsgate is about to start ramping up the promotion by releasing a new roll call in the coming days and in two weeks they’re going to lift my set visit embargo, so you can expect some great interviews with the cast.  But until then, I’m really happy to be able to offer up four exclusive character posters featuring Harrison Ford, Terry Crews, Jet Li, and Glen Powell.  Hit the jump to check them out.

Terry Crews Talks Old Spice, Tyler Perry’s SINGLE MOM’S CLUB, LUKE CAGE, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, THE EXPENDABLES 3, and More

I’ve been a fan of Terry Crews for a long time, so it’s been great watching his career explode over the past few years with excellent work on TV (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Arrested Development) and in the movies (Expendables) .   With Crews playing a supporting role in Tyler Perry’s latest, The Single Mom’s Club, the other day I landed an exclusive video interview with the actor at the film’s Los Angeles press day.  During the interview, Crews talked about whether he really uses Old Spice, how he’s wanted to be in a Tyler Perry movie for a long time, the way Perry likes to work and how Crews always starts big and lets the director tell him to scale it down if needed, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Expendables 3, his thoughts on playing Luke Cage in Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Terry Crews Says He’s “Game” to Lead Marvel’s LUKE CAGE Series

If you’re a Marvel fan, this is an exciting time.  We’ve got Captain America: The Winter Solider about to hit theaters, Guardians of the Galaxy arriving this summer, and production about to begin in New York City on the first of five planned Netflix shows: DaredevilJessica JonesLuke Cage, and Iron Fist.  In case you didn’t know, Marvel and Netflix have teamed up to produce 52 one-hour episodes based on the Marvel characters, encompassing the four individual series (13 episodes each) and one four to eight-episode mini-series (dubbed The Defenders) that teams up all of the aforementioned characters and revolves around their exploits in Hell’s Kitchen.  The Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director Drew Goddard is spearheading Daredevil as the writer and director of that series, which is likely the first to go into production, and Melissa Rosenberg is shepherding Jessica Jones.  Details on the other shows, though, are forthcoming.

With production beginning soon, many of us have started to wonder who will land the coveted roles.  In the past, fans have been vocal about wanting Terry Crews to play Luke Cage.  The other day I spoke with the actor in anticipation of Tyler Perry’s The Single Mom’s Club, and during our conversation I asked him about the possibility of taking on the role.  While Crews previously took himself out of the running for the role since it wasn’t actually moving forward, now that it is, he definitely sounded a lot more interested despite the fact that he’s under contract for Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, saying “anything can happen” and “I’m game.”  As a big fan of Crews, I’d love to see him land the role.  Hit the jump for what he had to say.

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 Blu-ray Review

cloudy-meatballs-2-anna-faris-bill-hader

It’s a shame that some still feel like animated films are primarily made for children.  The advent of Pixar and films like Shrek and The Fantastic Mr. Fox have more than proved otherwise, and in 2009 directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller delivered a wonderfully goofy animated take on Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs that appeals to adults and kids alike.  That film reveled in its offbeat sense of humor, and while Lord and Miller stepped back into executive producer roles for the sequel, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is a worthy follow-up that delivers a hefty dose of adorable buoyed by colorfully inspired designs and a heartfelt theme of friendship.  Read my review of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 on Blu-ray after the jump.

Check out 3 Super Bowl Ads Featuring Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hiddleston, Ben Kingsley, Mark Strong, Terry Crews, and The Muppets

As the old joke goes, the Super Bowl is three hours of commercials interrupted by football.  For football fans, this year has a great match-up between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, and there’s the possibility of them playing in the snow, which would be awesome.  But you don’t get to dominate the ratings every year by only appealing to football fans.  The ads are the comic interludes where everyone can join with an opinion, and I’m always surprised when they’re released online early.  This year, a Super Bowl spot will cost a record $4.5 million, and companies are deciding to jump to gun in order draw attention before Sunday.  Not that anyone’s complaining, and after the jump you’ll find three ads that will play during the Super Bowl.  As always, celebrities sell, so one ad has Scarlett Johansson (although it will be edited for game night since there’s a dig at major advertisers Coke and Pepsi), another has Terry Crews driving around with the Muppets, and a third ad has Tom Hiddleston, Mark Strong, and Ben Kingsley being villainous.

First Teaser Trailer for THE EXPENDABLES 3

Lionsgate has released a teaser trailer for director Patrick Hughes’ action sequel The Expendables 3.  The follow-up finds Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.  There’s no hint of that story in this first teaser trailer as the cast is simply too large to give everyone screentime in the time allotted.  Taking that into account, everyone and their mother is wheeled out to strike an action pose in what’s essentially a cast introduction.

Hit the jump to watch the teaser trailer.  The film also stars Wesley Snipes, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kelsey Grammer, Antonio Banderas, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, and Glen PowellThe Expendables 3 opens on August 15, 2014.

First Trailer for BLENDED Starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first trailer for director Frank Coraci’s (Click) upcoming romantic comedy Blended.  The film stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore as two single parents who, after vowing never to see each other following a disastrous blind date, end up booking the same African safari vacation and are forced to share a suite with each other’s families.  The film is very much in the vein of Sandler’s other recent string of comedies (it starts out with a pretty sick gross-out gag), but Sandler and Barrymore’s previous collaborations turned out pretty well with The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates, so hopefully Blended can follow more in their footsteps.  It also doesn’t hurt to add the very funny Terry Crews to the mix.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Wendi McLendon-Covey, Kevin Nealon, Bella Thorne, and Joel McHaleBlended opens on May 23rd.

With director Patrick Hughes’ The Expendables 3 due August 15, 2014, I’d imagine we’re getting close to seeing the first trailer/footage from the film.  As most of you know, the next installment has Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.  Returning for the sequel are Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Harrison Ford joining the all-star cast along with Kellan Lutz, MMA star Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz and Glen Powell.  No matter what you think of The Expendables franchise, you have to admit it’s a hell of a cast, and one I can’t wait to see kicking ass next summer.

So while we wait for the first footage to hit, we were sent a promo poster which you can check out after the jump.  It’s got the tag line, “Never send a boy to do a man’s job.”

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 Review

by     Posted 203 days ago

cloudy-meatballs-2-anna-faris-bill-hader-slice

I adore Cloudy with a Chance of MeatballsPhil Lord and Christopher Miller’s adaptation of the classic children’s book is one of the most unexpected and successful book adaptations of the past several years.  Most movies based on children books are belabored, tiresome affairs, and Cloudy turned the simple idea of food falling from the sky into a weird, adorable, and hilarious animated comedy.  It set an incredibly high bar for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, but new directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn have come close to giving us a movie as wonderful as the original.  Everything that made the first Cloudy a success is still in place, even though there’s more reliance on some cheap gags.  The sequel has cemented the identity of the series even though the story leaves some residual guiltiness about being a carnivore.

Andy Samberg and Terry Crews Talk CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2, Voice Recording, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, THE EXPENDABLES 3, and More

Terry-Crews-Andy-Samberg-Cloudy-with-a-Chance-meatballs-2-interview-slice

Andy Samberg and Terry Crews’ animated characters in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 couldn’t be more different. The brilliantly sardonic, not to mention rail-thin, Samberg goes against type as the dense, rotund ‘Baby’ Brent. Crews, on the other hand, co-stars as the hyper-masculine super cop Earl Devereaux. The militant character seems like a natural extension of Crews’ live action persona: a potent mixture of badass masculinity with an often-times-played-for-laughs vulnerability. However it’s Crews who is the newbie to the Cloudy franchise. While Samberg reprises his role from the first film, Crews takes over a part previously played by Mr. T. It’s an interesting duality: Samberg re-playing a character so far removed from himself and Crews stepping into a role seemingly tailor-made for him.

In the following interview with Samberg & Crews, the twosome discuss the vocal performance process on Cloudy 2, whether or not Crews could take Mr. T in a fight and working together on the TV show Brooklyn Nine-Nine.  In addition, Terry Crews talks about working opposite Wesley Snipes on The Expendables 3.  For the full interview, hit the jump.

First Clip from CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2

Sony Pictures has released the first clip from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.  In the upcoming sequel, Swallow Falls is under attack by mutant foods known as “foodimals”, so Flint (Bill Hader), Sam (Anna Faris), Brent (Andy Samberg), Manny (Benjamin Bratt), Earl (Terry Crews), and Steve (Neil Patrick Harris), must contain the creatures before they overrun the planet.  The clip is part of the footage we saw at Comic-Con, and it shows that the movie isn’t just the food puns we’ve seen in the trailers.  The same zany humor is back in full force, and this looks like it will be an incredibly fun ride.

Hit the jump to check out the clip.  Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 opens in 3D on September 27th.
