CON AIR Director Simon West Says He’d Like to Make CON AIR 2 a “CON AIR in Space” Sequel

collider.com – One of the more curious sequel possibilities floating around the past few years has been Con Air 2. Director Simon West’s 1997 actioner was a modest success at the box office, grossing $224 million worldwide, and while it was a classic Jerry Bruckheimer actioner with many quotable Nicolas Cage lines and a nutty John Malkovich performance, it was somewhat forgotten as the bigger and more four-quadrant friendly blockbusters of the 2000s started changing the moviegoing landscape. 5 years 19 weeks ago via jetli

New Behind-the-Scenes Featurette for THE EXPENDABLES 2

The Expendables 2
collider.com – Lionsgate has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for The Expendables 2. The new film has Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his gang of mercenaries out for revenge, and also having to deal with a baddie (Jean-Claude Van Damme) who wants some weapons-grade plutonium. This featurette isn't going to change anyone's anticipation for the flick one way or the other, but I do like the emphasis on practical effects and trying to offer a break from CGI-heavy action (although you will also notice green screens in this featurette).
