It’s no secret that I love a Statham movie. So, I’m ridiculously excited for Wild Card.
Jason Statham plays Nick Wild, a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss. Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob. Having raised the stakes, Nick has one last play to change his fortunes…and this time, it’s all or nothing. From two-time Academy® Award-winning writer William Goldman (Best Original Screenplay, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, 1969; Best Adapted Screenplay, All the President’s Men, 1976).
The film also stars Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes), Michael Angarano (Almost Famous), Anne Heche (6 days, 7 nights), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), and Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games).
WILD CARD is out in cinemas March 20
Fans have been waiting years to see Ryan Reynolds reprise his role as the merch with the mouth, now we’re one step closer. He and director Tim Miller are in pre-production for Deadpool. The movie finally starts shooting in Canada, in March.
The movie has booked two months at Vancouver’s North Shore Studios, although it isn’t known if the production will shoot in any other locations around the city.
I can’t wait, I’ve always thought that Ryan Reynolds was born to play two roles, Wally West AKA The Flash and, Wade Wilson AKA Deadpool.
I really hope the film can live up to my expectations. Reynolds and Miller has stated they wanted this to be R-rated (18 in proper money). But the pair eventually made a compromise with Fox, who wanted a PG-13 (12A in proper money).
The film will also star T.J. Miller (big hero 6) and Ed Skrein (the upcoming Statham-less Transporter movie).
Deadpool is set for a February 2016 release and will be part of the wider X-Men universe.
Keanu Reeves has often been criticised for his lack of “range” however, when you need a good-looking moody guy who can kick ass, he’s the only one you call.
Below is the first trailer for his upcoming movie ‘John Wick’.
When a retired hit man is forced back into action by a brutal Russian mobster, he hunts down his adversaries with the ruthlessness that made him a crime underworld legend in John Wick; a stylish tale of revenge and redemption.
After the sudden death of his beloved wife, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) receives one last gift from her, a beagle puppy named Daisy, and a note imploring him not to forget how to love. But John’s mourning is interrupted when his 1969 Boss Mustang catches the eye of sadistic thug Iosef Tarasov (Alfie Allen) who breaks into his house and steals it, beating John unconscious and leaving Daisy dead. Unwittingly, they have just reawakened one of the most brutal assassins the underworld has ever seen.
John’s search for his stolen vehicle takes him to a side of New York City that tourists never see, a hyper-real, super-secret criminal community, where John Wick was once the baddest guy of all.
I am ridiculously excited for this film, I love a moody Keanu.
JOHN WICK opens nationwide across the UK on 10th April 2015.
Former Doctor Who scribe Russell T Davies has ruled out returning to write another TV episode, he would however be interested in writing a Doctor Who movie.
During an interview on BBC Radio 2, promoting his new set of shows for ch4, he said: “I think it should be in the cinemas immediately. It would be glorious. Imagine queuing up at the cinema to go and see a Doctor Who film.”
Asked if he would write it: “Yes please. If we could get the lawyers and contracts flying now. You know I would do that because I think there’s a big leap to be made.”
I would love to see RTD return to the Whoniverse, maybe one day we could see he and Moffat team up to write a big screen adventure.
It’s widely known that Marvel had at one time approached Sony about using Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The plan was for him to appear in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, as the character played a huge part in the comic of the same name. But, for whatever reason the deal fell through. Sony is currently in the middle of a “Spidey summit” to discuss the wall crawlers future and, it seems that a deal may have been reached between Marvel and Sony that will see Peter Parker team up with The Avengers in the infinity war.
Latino Review have broken the news about the cross-over and full details can be found here.
At a press conference for the hit CW show, Arrow, John Barrowman revealed that the BBC are producing “three or four” audio dramas based on the series. It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since we last saw team Torchwood.
The actor added:
“My sister and I are discussing the possibility of writing one of them”
Barrowman is now a series regular on Arrow, but he did reveal that the producers have always stated they would allow him to film more Torchwood/Doctor Who, should the opportunity ever arises).
John and his sister Carole E. Barrowman, have co-written several Torchwood novels together as well as some comics.
Barrowman didn’t specify a timeframe for production/broadcast, or even if the events took place pre/after miracle day, but he did say at least one story will feature the original Torchwood team.
Torchwood producers Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner will also be involved.
Are you excited for the return of Torchwood? Let us know below

It’s still unknown if Billy Dee Williams will be returning for Star Wars:The force awakens, personally I think they’re holding off using him until episode 8. He first appeared in the second of the original trilogy, it would be a nice touch to have him re-appear in the second of the new trilogy.
But if you can’t wait for your Lando fix, then good news. He will appear in the eleventh episode of Series 1. The episode is called “Idiot’s Array” and sees Zeb lose Chopper in a game of Sabacc to Lando Calrissian.
I can’t wait to see Lando back in action, Williams is now the third original trilogy star to reprise their role. James Earl Jones and Frank Oz have previously appeared as Darth Vader and Yoda respectively.
During an interview promoting Taken 3, the Irish actor was asked if he’d be interested in reprising his role as Qui-Gon Jinn.
Neeson said “yes,” and spoke proudly of the character. He then asked the interviewer how they would do it since Jinn is dead.
Well, Qui-Gon was the Jedi to become one with the Force, which meant he could return as a “force-ghost”.
The character appeared multiple times, sans Neeson in the animated series ‘The Clone Wars’.
I doubt Qui-Gon will feature in the new trilogy, but there have been rumours of an Obi-Wan trilogy set between Revenge of the Sith and A new hope. It’s possible Neeson could return to mentor Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan.
After being in development for longer than Marvel had a cinematic universe, it’s great to finally see this teaser trailer for Ant-Man.
The film stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, a con-man who inherits a super-suit that allows him to shrink in size but increase in strength.
The thing that struck me most about this trailer is the lack of 21st century technology in the scenes, I don’t recall seeing anyone with a mobile or even a television in Paul Rudd’s house. With Hayley Atwell and John Slattery reprising their roles as Peggy Carter and Howard Stark, it’s a safe bet that this is set pre-Avengers.
It’s long been an ambition of Channing Tatum’s to be in an X-Men movie, he finally has his wish.
He will be playing Gambit.
The actor took to Twitter and asked “how do you say October 7th 2016 in Cajun?”
It’s expected that Tatum will cameo in X-Men:Apocalypse in May 2016, before appearing in his own solo movie in October of the same year.
Gambit is being written by Josh Zetumer, the man behind the Robocop reboot.
