John Wick Film Universe May Kickoff With Action Movie Ballerina Lionsgate is looking into establishing a John Wick universe by retooling their recently acquired action script, Ballerina. Keanu Reeves returned to the action genre in 2014 by starring in the film John Wick, based on a script by Derek Kolstad, in which he played an assassin who comes out of retirement to exact revenge on the people who stole his car and killed his dog.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre Prequel Leatherface Sets Release Date Leatherface has finally gotten itself an official release date. Cinema history is full of horror franchises that began on top of the pop culture world, only to end up descending into utter ridiculousness as their installments continued. For instance, Friday the 13th‘s Jason Voorhees and Hellraiser‘s Pinhead both went into space, while Halloween‘s Michael Myers eventually abandoned stalking his relatives for the thrills of offing contestants on a reality TV show.

Let’s kick off this Father’s Day with a fun video. With John Wick 2 now out on Blu-ray, this Corridor Digital parody video answers the question: What If John Wick Played Nerf?

John Wick Prequel TV Show Gets A Fitting Title, Keanu Reeves May Guest Star John Wick was one of the big surprises in the year it came out. On a surface level, it looked a lot like your typical cheesy action flick, and while Keanu Reeves has proven in the past to be great in certain roles, he’s also been known to crash and burn in roles that didn’t fit him as well. Luckily for us, the film turned out to be pretty damn great, and it’s since gone on to spawn a stellar sequel. But that’s not the end of the franchise.

Audiences first took notice of Brie Larson’s dramatic talents with 2013’s Short Term 12. Now, after earning her first Oscar and landing the lead in Marvel’s upcoming female-led superhero film, the actress is reuniting with the director who helped bring her into the spotlight. Continue reading…

Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel Leatherface finally has a release date. Leatherface was of course introduced in director Tobe Hooper’s classic 1974 fright fest The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and is in many ways one of the grandfathers of the entire slasher genre, hitting screens years before any of the other aforementioned killers.

ATOMIC BLONDE Red Band Trailer: Charlize Theron Goes, Well, Nuclear! The great lyricist Irving Berlin once wrote, 'Anything you can do I can do better; I can do anything better than you'. If we were wondering if anyone had an answer for Chad Stahelski's John Wick Chapter 2 for action film of the year David Leitch's Atomic Blonde just rolled into town spitting lyrics to the tune of this red band trailer.    Agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on an impossible mission.
