Zombieland 2 is resurrected (again) by Deadpool writers

by James Buckinghamon 01/09/2016
When Zombieland was released in 2009, it was a smash hit. Its vicious running zombies and pop culture-inspired humour (largely helped by Jesse Eisenberg‘s running commentary, and one of the best cameos in cinema history) was a winning combination for this twinkie-fuelled undead road trip movie. The rights to a series was picked up by […]

The Wolverine – One Last Stand?

by Daniel Delargyon 29/07/2015
This is a debate which has been going on for quite some time now – should Hugh Jackman let those trademark claws stay in, or should he let them out for one last ‘snikt’… Prior to the release of the 2014 film X-Men: Days of Future Past, Hugh Jackman flip flopped between talked openly about his reservations of doing […]

8 Sequels And Remakes I Actually Want, That Hollywood Will Not Give Me

by spikedirectionon 07/07/2015
You don’t have to look hard to find film fans complaining, at length, about the indomitable tide of unwanted sequels or remakes swamping our cinemas and taking funds away from creative or interesting ideas. I’d usually be one of them; I’d much rather be surprised by something new, than watch studio execs, led by focus […]

Who The Hell Is Tom Holland?

by spikedirectionon 29/06/2015
For a little while during Marvel Studios’ search for the next Spider-Man, once they’d announced they were going for a Peter Parker rather than a Miles Morales (Who could ONLY be played by Donald Glover now anyway), it seemed as if every white male of the right age, height and weight was being herded through […]

by Daniel Delargyon 27/06/2014
On the 27th of April 2017, man and machine will once more team up to cancel the apocalypse (…again) in the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. The sequel will have Guillermo del Toro helm the director’s chair, as well as have him write the movie with Travis Beacham (who was a co-writer for […]

Scarface, Rebooting a Legend and Playing with Political Fire

by James Woodheadon 25/03/2014
Last week I let out a little rant about the subject of reboots, it seems this week will be the same. Last night, The Wrap revealed that Chilean director, Pablo Larrain (Academy Award nominee for “No” as Foreign Language film) will be taking over the helm to from David Yates (Harry Potter and the Deathly […]

300: Rise of an Empire – Seize Your Glory Review

by James Buckinghamon 14/02/2014
If there’s one thing that appeals to the general red-blooded male sensibility it’s good old-fashioned carnage. So when Zack Snyder adapted Frank Miller‘s 300 for the big screen, I was in testosterone-soaked heaven… awesome choreography, blood and gore galore and it just looked so damn good. Now, we have the inevitable sequel on the horizon, and with […]

Ben Affleck… Batman?

by Laura Maieron 23/08/2013
Yup, it’s true boys and girls:  the man cast as Batman for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel is none other than Ben Affleck. Reactions to this news have been mixed, with phrases such as “killing off the DC movieverse” [SKB] thrown around the Geek Pride water cooler, but I for one think this could […]

by James Buckinghamon 05/08/2013
When you’ve served your country as long as Frank has, you’ve seen it all… and when you get to your twilight years, you just want to settle down with a nice girl and bask in domestic bliss. Unfortunately for Frank, no-one else seems to want him to enjoy retirement – including his significant other. To […]

Despicable Me 2

by James Buckinghamon 22/06/2013
Gru, Margo, Edith, Agnes, Dr. Nefario and all the twinkie-lookalike minions return for the follow-up to the hugely successful 2010 movie Despicable Me, imaginatively titled Despicable Me 2. “That’s right, baby!” Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud return to direct the sequel to arguably one of my favourite kid’s movies next to Wreck-It Ralph. Despicable Me hit all the […]
