How ‘xXx: Return Of Xander Cage’ Celebrates International Stars and Fierce Women
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

xXx Return of Xander Cage review

The one film you’d least expect to be so much fun while at the same time smashing the Bechdel test into pieces is xXx: Return of Xander Cage. But the Vin Diesel-starring vehicle does it with ease. Not only that, but it also celebrates some of the biggest global stars without painting them as a villain. It would be way too easy to look past this film, given that it is not part of a very successful franchise. However, the sequel doesn’t care about any of that. Instead, it raises the bar on absurd stunts and pushes the envelope on logic and physics. So much so that the film actually gets meta and pokes fun at itself. But really, if you look past all of that, you’ll see that it is actually a celebration of global stars and fierce women.

We got a chance recently to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to Diesel and some of the cast of the film from Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone, Kris Wu, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, and Nina Dobrev to its director, D.J. Caruso. Each of one of them sharing the Diesel’s sentiment and all of them agreeing that it was so much fun to be a part of. Check out what they had to say here below.

Movie Review: ‘xXx: Return Of Xander Cage’

xXx Return of Xander Cage review

xXx: Return of Xander Cage
Director: D. J. Caruso
Screenwriter: F. Scott Frazier
Cast: Vin Diesel, Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone, Kris Wu, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev, Toni Collette, Samuel L. Jackson
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 115 Minutes
Release Date: January 20, 2017

It never ceases to amaze me how much passion Vin Diesel has in seemingly dead in the water projects. Fast and Furious and Riddick were two Diesel franchise vehicles that never really got off the ground when they launched, but because of his dedication to the fans, they got sequels. The former much more popular than the latter, but the actor took it upon himself to breathe new life into the xXx films with xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

Never let it be said that Diesel doesn’t know how to have fun, because in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, there is plenty of it. There’s no political message, no over-sexualization of either gender, and no xenophobic thoughts. Instead, the film treats us to something everyone can enjoy. My full review below.

Dwayne Johnson To Star In Both ‘Black Adam’ and ‘Shazam’

Black Adam DC Comics

As Warner Bros. unite the various DC heroes for the DCEU, one hero’s spot on the superhero ensemble remained uncertain. It has only been a few years since we’ve heard anything about WB’s Shazam, but early reports say that he might not even be on the team. Since Dwayne Johnson accepted the role of Black Adam in 2014, the actor as called the character an anti-hero, which is contrary to how he’s normally depicted in the comics, which is to serve as a villain to the heroic Shazam.

Now there are reports that Black Adam and Shazam will be two separate films entirely. Not only that, but Black Adam will also appear in Shazam as well. More on the story below.

Latest Wolverine Movie Logan

20th Century Fox has released a second trailer for Logan, the latest and said to be final (unless there’s a change of heart at some point) Wolverine movie starring Hugh Jackman in the title role.

The first trailer released in October focused mainly on Logan. This new trailer focuses more on the young girl we’ve seen hanging out with old man Logan and Professor X (Patrick Stewart). As Xavier says to Wolverine: “She’s like you. Very much like you.

‘Deadpool 2’ Writers Confirm Return Of Colossus and Negasonic; Talk About Cable

Deadpool

It really wouldn’t be much of a Deadpool movie without the Merc with a Mouth mocking his fellow castmates, both on screen and off. But as the title character pointed out in the first film, there wasn’t much of a budget for a lot of X-Men characters. With Deadpool being a box office smash, fans are expecting the sequel to be bigger and better. That means they’ll have to introduce new characters for even more hilarious mockery and insults.

We’re expecting to see Cable and Domino in the film, but their roles have not been cast yet. However, in a new interview with screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, it’s confirmed that Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead will also be making a return. The two scribes also spoke about how they will work Cable into the film, despite his rather confusing timeline. Check out what they had to say below.

‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Peter Dinklage Joins ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Avengers 4’

Game of Thrones Season 6 Images #22

It’s probably safe to say that even though we know most or all of the heroic characters, and some of the surviving evil ones too, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe who will have some sort of role in two of the upcoming Avengers films, Avengers: Infinity War and the currently untitled Avengers 4. While the plot of the films are still very much under wraps, we can pretty much guess that Thanos (Josh Brolin) has finally collected most or all of the Infinity Stones to possibly destroy the universe to win Death’s heart.

Again that is just pure speculation, but as with any sequel, there are bound to be new characters. And it just so happens that Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) will be playing one of these new characters. More on the story below.

‘Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon’ Sequel Teased For 2017
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon

A sequel to the excellent 2006 indie horror flick Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon has been in the works for quite a long time now. The movie is a twist on the slasher sub-genre, following an ambitious up-and-coming slasher who is inspired by legends like Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, and Freddy Krueger, and the film crew he has following him to document what he does.

Unfortunately things simply haven’t worked out in getting it made so far. An attempted Kickstarter campaign back in 2012 only secured a little over $183,000 of the $450,000 goal, which bums me out because I would have totally thrown in whatever I could afford to but never even heard about the crowdfunding campaign until, well…right now.

But now a shiny new year has arrived, and it might just be a good year to make a sequel. The official Facebook page for the sequel, which is currently titled Before the Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon, has dropped the first post since 2015 teasing another attempt at the movie this year. More below.

New ‘Child’s Play’ Movie ‘Cult Of Chucky’ Teaser Trailer
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Cult of Chucky Teaser Trailer

A teaser trailer has been released for Cult of Chucky, the seventh movie in the Child’s Play horror franchise. The last time we saw the evil doll was in 2013’s Curse of Chucky, almost a decade after 2004’s Seed of Chucky.

In the latest entry, Nica (Fiona Dourif) finds herself dealing with Chucky (Brad Dourif) once again, this time in an insane asylum. She’ll have help, with Chucky’s child target from the original Child’s Play Andy (once again played by Alex Vincent) returning, but so will Chucky, whose bride Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) is back as well. It’s not clear if the movie involves an epic tag team wrestling match in the middle of the asylum, but you know you’re hoping it does.

Continue below to read a full synopsis for Cult of Chucky and check out the teaser trailer.
