Kingsman: The Golden Circle Trailer

Last week we saw a high-speed first look tease for the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Though no information was given on when we might see a real trailer, it was assumed that one was coming soon.

These assumptions were correct, as 20th Century Fox has released the first official trailer for the movie. This time around, the Kingsman group finds themselves joining forces with an ally spy organization in America called Statesman.

Continue below for more information on The Golden Circle and to check out the trailer.

Movie Review: The Great Wall
eelyajekiM   |  

The Great Wall starring Matt Damon

The Great Wall
Director: Zhang Yimou
Screenwriter: Carlo Bernard, Doug Miro, Tony Gilroy
Cast: Matt Damon, Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe, Andy Lau
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 104 Minutes
Release Date: February 17, 2017

One would expect something like The Great Wall to live up to its title. History tells us that The Great Wall of China was constructed with the purpose of defense, border control, and trade regulation. In Zhang Yimou‘s film, we learn that it had another purpose: to protect the nation of China from the Tao Tei, giant green scaly beasts that have ravaged the country for ages. This would not be the first time that a film has depicted history and mix it with myth and monsters.

Of course, one of the biggest concerns surrounding The Great Wall is the blatant whitewashing that has been a part of the marketing campaign since the very beginning. Matt Damon has been the face of this film. Despite the film’s majority Chinese cast, Chinese director, and Chinese financiers, the film still believed it needed to have a big name in order to be a big seller.

But putting all of that aside, there is some entertainment value in the film. Just don’t expect much of it. Check out my full review below.

NYCC 2016: ‘The Great Wall’ Interview: Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal, Zhang Yimou
Dr. Zaius   |  

The Great Wall Matt Damon Pedro Pascal

After the New York Comic-Con panel for The Great Wall energized the crowd at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, I had the chance to attend a private press event featuring stars Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal, Jing Tian, Wang Yunkai, and director Zhang Yimou.

Damon and Pascal had trouble hiding their total fanboy feelings towards their director, a man whom they both greatly admired for years for his filmography, including Raise the Red Lantern, Hero, and House of Flying Daggers. They routinely cited “pinch-me moments” on set. The first question went to the director about the process of making the film. He replied that it was developed over seven years and that he tried to add something unique to each shot, whether color or a specific action sequence.

NYCC 2016: ‘The Great Wall’ Panel With Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal, Zhang Yimou & more
Dr. Zaius   |  

Great Wall panel, NYCC 2016

It was a packed house on Saturday afternoon at The Theater at Madison Square Garden for New York Comic-Con, for Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ The Great Wall panel and Q&A. From the director of some of the most beautiful kung fu epics eves, Zhang Yimou (House of Flying Daggers/Hero), comes the largest production in the history of China, which makes sense since it’s called, The Great Wall. The film is a historical fantasy based on Chinese folklore about the monsters the Great Wall of China was built to keep out and the army dedicated to killing them. It features an all-star international cast including Oscar winner Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones), Jing Tian, Wang Junkai, Willem Dafoe, and Andy Lau.

Director Zhang Yimou, and cast members Matt Damon, Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal, and Junkai Wang were on hand for the NYCC panel, moderated by Dave Karger.

NYCC 2016: ‘The Great Wall’ Trailer Has Matt Damon Discovering A Great Secret

The Great Wall starring Matt Damon

Any normal film about The Great Wall of China would be otherwise been seen as a documentary or a dramatization of how the wall was built. But add a monster element to it, and it has all the makings of a blockbuster tentpole movie, especially if said film has cast a very marketable name headlining it, like Matt Damon. Universal and Legendary have released the second trailer for The Great Wall.

Check it out here below.

RELEASE DATE: February 17, 2015

Another year has come and gone, and a new season of Game of Thrones is on the horizon—season five, to be specific, which will premiere on April 12th.

As always, HBO has released the previous season, season four, on Blu-ray and DVD just in time to help get us through these undeniably difficult final couple of months of waiting for the new season to arrive. Once again we offer our review without any spoilers—in case you’ve not yet started or finished the latest season—and focus mainly on what fans of the show who are caught up want to know, which is what special features are included on the discs. If you’ve never seen the show at all, why on earth are you reading a review of season four instead of watching season one, episode one? Go now!

Bloodsucking Bastards Header Image

Everyone can appreciate a good horror-comedy, and Bloodsucking Bastards looks like it has the potential to become just that.

The movie takes place in an office workplace environment, where a man loses a promotion to his office rival and it’s a steep downward spiral from there as co-workers begin dying. It stars Fran Kranz (Cabin in the Woods, Dollhouse), Pedro Pascal (the Red Viper, Oberyn Martell, from HBO’s Game of Thrones), Emma Fitzpatrick (The Social Network, The Collection), Joey Kern (Cabin Fever, Super Troopers), Joel Murray (God Bless America, Monsters University), and Yvette Yates (Inherent Vice).

The Movie God   |  

Pedro Pascal as Prince Oberyn Martell on Game of Thrones

A pair of actors have entered into negotiations to join Ben-Hur, the latest adaptation of Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ. The book was of course previously turned into the 1959 classic starring Charlton Heston that went on to win 11 Academy Awards.

It’s being reported that Gal Gadot, who’s best known (though only seen in a single image so far) as the new Wonder Woman for upcoming DC Comics movies beginning with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Pedro Pascal, who won many fans as Prince Oberyn Martell, the Red Viper of Dorne, on the most recent season of Game of Thrones, are both in talks for the movie. Gadot would play the female lead, Esther, a slave Ben-Hur is in love with. Pascal is up for the role of Pontius Pilate.
