Black Panther Action Scenes Draw Comparison To Kingsman The Congressional Black Caucus were recently shown exclusive footage from next year’s Black Panther, and it looks to be even more action-packed than previously imagined. While Marvel fans and general audiences all have the film they’re most looking forward to in the next few years, a large portion of the Internet has been goings nuts for Black Panther. With its predominately black cast, setting in Africa, and mix of real-world culture and sci-fi tech, Black Panther looks like nothing we’ve seen before.

Bruce Willis-Led 'Death Wish' Remake Shooting for November Release Decades before Taken got tooken, Charles Bronson went on a revenge rampage. Liam Neeson had his very particular set of skills, but in 1974’s Death Wish, Bronson had a well-kempt mustache, a dead wife, a hospitalized daughter, and a white-hot grudge.

The Funny Story Behind Vincent D'Onofrio's Crazy High-Pitched Voice in 'The Magnificent Seven' Viewers of Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven remake (or reimagining) will no doubt find action, suspense and a whole lot of bullets flying across dirt-covered paths, but what they may also be surprised to find is just how much humor is packed into the film, too. Many of the laughs come from the ensemble's most charismatic addition, Chris Pratt, playing a wisecracking gambler named Josh Faraday who joins Denzel Washington's Chisolm early in the film -- the duo on a quest to...Read MoreRead Comments
