I personally don’t mind Muse as a band but throughout their career they’ve always managed to produce some of the more inventive and entertaining music videos.Their latest for the single Pressure is no exception.
Directed by filmaker Lance Drake it stars the band and legendary actor Terry Crews and is rammed full of pop culture and movie references from the 80s, ranging from the more obvious Back To The Future and Critters to the more obscure like The Exterminator and Fright Night.
It merits a couple of watches to catch them all. Good luck.
Here’s the official trailer for the star studded movie Reach Me, which looks like a hybrid of Crash and 2 Days In The Valley, which is probably more than a coincidence as the writer/director of this feature, John Herzfeld also wrote and directed 2 Days In The Valley.
Reach Me tells the story of a group of people who all have a connection to a self-help book authored by a reclusive former football coach, played by a weather beaten Tom Berenger who fills out a cast which includes Sly Stallone, Lauren Cohan, Kyra Sedgwick, Terry Crews, Thomas Jane, Kevin Connolly and Danny Trejo, to name a few.
If you don’t know who Terry Crews is then hang your head in shame. The man is a mobile muscle cake, he’s like a gigantic Awesomatron sent from another planet to save mankind and apart from appearing in movies, (The 6th Day, Friday After Next, White Chicks, Idiocracy, The Expendables), he is now the face and body of a hilarious collection of Old Spice adverts on American TV. Of course there is another reason why these commercials are so popular and that’s because they’ve been directed by the bat-shit insane duo of Tim & Eric.
We can only watch and dream of adverts as crazy as this, here in the UK.
This is less of a teaser trailer and more of a glorified cast list. So who’s left? Well for the third installment of this overblown, testosterone fuelled, fap fest they could draft in Steven Seagal, The Rock, Vin Diesel or how about The Chuckle Brothers? You’ll notice in the trailer that it announces every star’s surname and that ‘Hemsworth‘ pops up. Yeah, that’s not Chris Hemsworth the star of Thor, it’s his brother Liam, the star of…?
If the first film was anything to go buy the sequel will have about as much direction and plot as an eight year-old playing with his action figures in a sand pit.
After taking a seemingly simple job for Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) the Expendables find their plans going awry and one of their own is brutally murdered. The Expendables set out into hostile territory — with their new members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) — to put a stop to a deadly weapon and gain their revenge against the villain who killed their brother.
Here’s the poster for the sequel to The Expendables movie; EX2. Loving the whole compact abbreviation in the title.
Starring Sylvester Stallone, The Stath, Terry Crews, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The only way this film could become any more manlier would be if Lee Marvin’s dead ball-sack popped up in a cameo role.
