"The Christmas Chronicles 2" director Chris Columbus describes how much the veteran actor really, really likes playing Santa Claus.
A remake of classic horror movie The Thing is on the way from Blumhouse, but not as we know it.
Sylvester Stallone is certainly no stranger to returning to his greatest hits, and 'Tango & Cash' could be next.
Burt Reynolds, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, and Michael Madsen are in talks to join Quentin Tarantino’s next film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” sources tell Variety.
To many, the "Overboard" remake speaks to a lack of moviemaking imagination — in both storytelling ideas and finding a novel vehicle for a talent like Anna Faris.
Kurt Russell appears in his 1980s pomp in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' but the actor says the "youthification" process owes more to makeup than CGI.
The couple were honoured in front of friends and family including Quentin Tarantino, Reese Witherspoon, and Kate Hudson.
In group visit to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' five of the 'Guardians' cast members zipped their lips about what role their crew might play in pivotal Marvel film
Ten years after it crashed and burned at the box office, exploitation double bill 'Grindhouse' has made a greater impact on movies and pop culture than anyone would have expected.
Robert Rodriguez looks set to become the Duke of New York, A-number one. The revered cult filmmaker has entered into talks to call the shots on the long in-development remake of 1981 sci-fi action thriller ‘Escape From New York,’ according to The Hollywood Reporter. Robert Rodriguez is going to direct ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK.
While chaotic action and sarcastic humor had a lot to do with Guardians of the Galaxy’s huge box office success, so too did its soundtrack, chockablock with old-school hits that underscored the film’s joyous, freewheeling energy. As evidenced by both of its trailers and at least one of its posters (see above), the highly anticipated Vol. 2, arriving in May, will embrace that same rock ‘n’ roll spirit — so it’s only fitting that various cast members have now each picked one song that they’d most want to contribute to an “Awesome Mix” tape compilation as part of the new Vol. 2 cover story for Empire (h/t Indiewire). At Empire‘s invitation, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Kurt Russell, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Elizabeth Debicki, Pom Klementieff, and writer/director James Gunn each select a beloved track that they’d include on an epic Guardians mix-tape.
Looks like the long in-development ‘Escape From New York’ remake will fall in the latter category. The Wrap have published a synopsis of the new take on John Carpenter’s 1981 sci-fi action thriller, which starred Kurt Russell as grizzled anti-hero Snake Plissken, sent into a post-apocalyptic New York City which has been repurposed as a maximum security prison, with 20 hours to find and rescue the President. Potential spoilers for the ‘Escape From New York’ reboot ahead.
Just when ‘Stargate’ fans had a glimmer of hope about a new big screen outing, their dreams have been dashed. Speaking to Empire (via Den of Geek), Devlin revealed that the proposed reboot, again helmed by Emmerich, had been canned.
When Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson first announced plans to remake 1986 Kung Fu action comedy ‘Big Trouble in Little China,’ one of the first things he mentioned was his hope to involve both original star Kurt Russell and original director John Carpenter in the project.
Kurt Russell – yep, Jack Burton himself – has said that no film is ‘too precious’ to be remade. The star was discussing the rumours that barmy 80s fantasy actioner ‘Big Trouble In Little China’, in which he played the bumbling hero. Dwayne Johnson is said to be in talks for the lead, Russell’s ‘Fast & Furious 8’ co-star, but he said that the pair had not discussed the possibility.
After the success of James Gunn’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ in 2014, it’s no surprise fans are drooling over next year’s sequel. While speaking to Empire, director James Gunn revealed it was actually Pratt’s idea to cast the legendary Russell in the role of his father/giant face planet, Ego.
Months of speculation over who Kurt Russell is playing in Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2′ has come to an end, after the first footage for James Gunn’s sequel revealed all at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Along with the all-new logo for the movie (as pictured above), we’ve finally had some confirmation on who Kurt Russell plays in the Marvel galaxy and, importantly, who Star-Lord’s (Chris Pratt) father is. During the first early footage of the adventure film, audiences were privy to a number of moments revolving around our resident guardians: Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot, Gamora, and Drax, as well as Yondu.
When it comes to the ‘Fast & Furious’ movies, we’ve learned to expect three specific things: fast cars, ridiculous action, and bro-down camaraderie. (Oh, and gratuitous shots of women’s bottoms, but that’s another matter.)
Woody Allen has always been slightly frustrated that ‘Annie Hall’ is called the greatest romcom of all-time, mostly because his original concept wasn’t a romcom at all. Editor Ralph Rosenblum has said that the original footage was non-dramatic and too disparate, despite being hilarious and sophisticated. In the end, Allen was convinced that the relationship with Annie (Diane Keaton) was the heart of the movie and while some meta stuff remains (fourth wall-breaking, the subtitles, Marshall McLuhan), the simplified, dare we say more romantic version, has rightly taken its place in comedy history.
