RIP Burt Reynolds

Oh man! Hollywood icon Burt Reynolds sadly passed away yesterday after a heart attack aged 82.

A man who, for most of his career, sported the world’s most famous moustache and cheeky grin he leaves behind a rich and varied catalogue of work ranging from the humour of Bo ‘Bandit’ Darville, (Smoket & The Bandit), to the steely determination of Lewis Medlock, (Deliverance).

 

 

A ton of celebrities have been sharing the fondest memories of Reynolds on social media. Here’s a few of the best. Rest easy Bandit.

Final Predator Trailer Has Predator Dogs

Here’s the very last official trailer for Shane Black’s The Predator which is set for release on September 7th.

This will be the fourth installment of the Predator franchise, (unofficially it’s the sixth, but we’re going to skip past those two horrendous Alien Vs Predator movies).

It’s hoped that if The Predator is successful it will become the first of a trilogy of movies directed by Shane Black

 

The plot of The Predator rattles along like so:

A young boy (Jacob Tremblay) accidentally triggers an alert that brings the Predators back to Earth. The universe’s most lethal hunters have genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other alien species, and it’s up to a team of ex-soldiers and a science teacher to stop them.

 

Big Trouble In Little China Remake Is Now A Sequel.

Will Kurt Russell return? That’s the first question on everyone’s lips now that details have emerged that the Big Trouble In Little China, (BTILC) remake will now be a straight up sequel to the 1986 cult classic.

When a new BTILC movie was announced back in 2005 many fans balked at the idea of a remake. The Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was cast and it looked like concerns about a remake were to be confirmed. However producer Hiram Garcia recently told Collider  that the movie would be a continuation of the original:

“There’s a lot of things going on with Big Trouble in Little China. We are in the process of developing that, and let me tell you, the idea is not to actually remake Big Trouble in Little China. You can’t remake a classic like that, so what we’re planning to do is we’re going to continue the story. We’re going to continue the universe of Big Trouble in Little China.

“Everything that happened in the original exists and is standalone and I think there’s only one person that could ever play Jack Burton, so Dwayne would never try and play that character. So we are just having a lot of fun. We’re actually in a really great space with the story that we’ve cracked. But yeah, no remake. It is a continuation, and we are deep into development on that as well, and I think you’ll start hearing some things about that probably soon.”

So with that revelation will fans get to see Kurt Russell side-by-side with the The Rock battling Lo Pan’s Chinatown’s supernatural foes?

Trailer for Biggie Smalls Murder Movie City Of Lies.

Here’s the first official trailer for Johnny Depp’s new movie City Of Lies, co-starring Forest Whitaker and directed by Brad Furman, (The Lincoln Lawyer).

The movie is based on the Pulitzer nominated novel LAbyrinth by Randall Sullivan which examined the details surrounding the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G and the possible involvement of the Los Angeles police department in their deaths.

The trailer, like most these days, gives away a large portion of the plot which rattles along like so:

Former LAPD detective, Russell Poole joins forces with journalist Jack Jackson nearly two decades after the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. to find out the truth.

Many documentaries have been made theorising what happened and who was ultimately responsible for the deaths of these two young artists, but City Of Lies apparently only deals with the the case work of Poole. A man who unearthed a load of details and information about an alleged conspiracy involving the LAPD.

City Of Lies is scheduled for release on September 7th.

First Trailer For Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur.

Here’s the first original trailer released this week at San Diego’s Comic Con, for Guy Ritchie’s new movie King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword starring Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey and David Beckham…yes, David Beckham.

The plot rattles along like so:

The young Arthur runs the back passages of Londinium with his crew, not knowing his royal lineage until he grabs Excalibur. Instantly confronted by the sword’s influence, Arthur is forced to make up his mind. Throwing in with the Resistance and an enigmatic young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern — who murdered his parents and stole his crown — and become king.

From the trailer it looks like like Ritchie should’ve named it Lock, Stock & One Smoking Sword.

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword is set for a March 24th, 2017 release.
