It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the planned remake of William Lustig’s cult slasher Maniac Cop, but now Variety is reporting that the project is officially moving forward, with financing secured and principal photography set to take place in Los Angeles this summer.

Blu-ray Review – RoboCop 3: Collector’s Edition (1993)

11 hours ago

RoboCop 3: Collector’s Edition, 1993.

Directed by Fred Dekker.

Starring Robert John Burke, Nancy Allen, Rip Torn, John Castle, Jill Hennessy, C.C.H. Pounder, Mako Iwamatsu, Robert DoQui, and Bruce Locke.

Synopsis:

Shout! Factory has released a Collector’s Edition of RoboCop 2, so it’s not a surprise that they did the same for the third installment, which ended the series with a whimper, rather than a bang. Fans, though, will appreciate the nice audio-visual presentation, as well as the included bonus features.

Sometimes a movie, no matter how successful it is, doesn’t really need a sequel. Or the filmmakers may end up exploring all their premise has to offer after two installments. Of course, such considerations bear just about zero weight in Hollywood, where every studio needs as many franchises as it can handle. And sometimes those movie franchise ends up like the fast food franchises that sell the same bland stuff to everyone. »

Fans of the original RoboCop were intrigued by the notion of Irvin Kershner directing the sequel, as well as the involvement of comic book legend Frank Miller in the screenplay. However, anyone expecting the film to attain the kind of status that The Empire Strikes Back has reached in »

Two more alternative endings for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story revealed

13 hours ago

This past week Rogue One: A Star Wars Story screenwriter Gary Whitta discussed a couple of alternative endings for December’s Anthology movie, including a “happy” ending where Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor survived, and another where Darth Vader killed Director Krennic. And now, speaking to io9, Ilm’s Chief Creative Officer John Knoll (the man responsible for the original pitch for Rogue One) has revealed another couple of endings that were under consideration.

The first ending would have seen Jyn and Cassian escaping Scarif and attempting to lose Darth Vader’s Star Destroyer by making multiple jumps through hyperspace, with Knoll explaining: “And the last jump they do, they try to get lost in the traffic that’s around Coruscant. It’s a giant cloud of ships. Ten-thousand ships coming and going and they’re trying to get lost in that traffic but they don’t make it. There »

Life: One Dread-Inducing Reason to Watch the Sci-Fi Horror Movie

15 hours ago

Samuel Brace on the new sci-fi horror Life

Space is awesome.

And no, that’s not The reason suggested in the title of this piece, but it was certainly My reason for initially buying a ticket. But with that being said, it is a statement that should ease us nicely into this sincere endorsement of the thoroughly enjoyable sci-fi horror movie Life. Because space is awesome; full of miraculous wonders and myriad intrigue, and perhaps this writer’s favourite movie setting of all, it therefore, admittedly, affords any film set in that environment an extra point or two come game time.

I went into Life — a simple thriller set aboard the International Space Station — really knowing nothing about it apart from its location, and the fact that space is indeed awesome. I was looking forward to a film that probably wasn’t going to be great but hopefully would be good fun none the less. »
