In news that should shock no one -- he scored Man of Steel, all three Nolan Bat films and probably enjoys getting payed money -- Hans Zimmer has confirmed that he'll be returning for Batman vs. Superman. The prolifi...

Review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The First Avenger is my favorite film out of the Marvel line up (which is why I claimed this review). Captain America has always been my personal favorite Marvel character due to a mix of that cool Saturday m...

First trailer for Scarlett Johansson's 'Lucy' is amazing

Luc Besson's (The Fifth Element) upcoming action thriller Lucy has it all; Scarlett Johansson kicking serious ass, telekinesis, explosions, designer drugs, superhuman strength, and Scarlett Johansson kicking serious ass. Did...

Expendables 3 rolls out a whole ton of posters

The cast for the Expendables films just keeps getting larger and larger, and in this very rare instance that is a completely awesome thing. You can tell it's completely awesome because despite the absurd amount of charac...

Scarlett Johansson looks badass in first 'Lucy' image.

In director Luc Besson's upcoming action thriller Lucy, Scarlett Johansson stars as a drug-mule turned telekinetic kill machine by way of designer drugs, and if that doesn't sound awesome then I don't know what does...

New screenwriters of Splinter Cell movie

Things seem to be rolling along for Tom Hardy's Splinter Cell film, which has a director, but evidently not a strong enough screenplay. Up in the Air writer Sheldon Turner has come on board to rewrite the screenplay...

Review: Sabotage

I've been hyping Sabotage since I first heard about it. I'm a huge Arnold Schwarzenegger fan and a huge David Ayers (End of Watch) fan so the two together sounds like sweet, sweet cop action bliss. Ayers is great and mel...

New poster for Transformers: Age of Extinction looks surprisingly cool

I'll be honest and admit that I've never really been into any of the Transformers movies. A lot of the past movies in the franchise have seemed like blundering, all flash, no substance action-y movies, and for the most part t...

Review: The Raid 2: Berandal

I will admit that I have not seen every movie that has ever been made. I have not seen every action film, martial arts film, or even all of the most revered of the action and martial arts films. I’ve seen my fair share,...

Review: 300: Rise of an Empire

When a not-sequel/prequel to 300, a film that hit theaters over eight theaters ago, was first announced, I was the first to complain about how boring the whole thing looked. And as time went on, and trailers were slowly ...

First Hercules trailer lets us know exactly who it's about

I've already dubbed the first Hercules that came this year as the worst movie of the year (a crown it still holds), but the second Hercules movie, Hercules, I have much higher hopes for, especially after this trailer. W...

See Sabotage early and free

I might be hyping Sabotage more than most other movies, but that's because it isn't getting the respect it (hopefully) deserves. Arnold is awesome and director David Ayer is even awesome..er. So get excited! And then gra...

The Rock is the only Hercules I'll ever need

New Red Band Sabotage trailer brings us more Arnold

I'm not quite sure we're all actually excited enough for Sabotage, because we really should be. After the last red band I thought we'd all be on board with Arnold taking on a drug cartel with a bunch of other awesome people ...
