MOVIE NEWS JULY 6TH BIOSHOCK, PREDATORS, MAD MAX, INCEPTION & JOHN CARPENTER

BioShock movie will be rated a “hard R”

IGN spoke with formerly attached director Gore Verbinski, and got a quickie update on the status of the film:

We’re working trying to make it. The problem with BioShock was: R-rated movie, underwater, horror. It’s a really expensive R-rated movie. So we’re trying to figure out a way working with [director] Juan Carlos [Fresnadillo] to get the budget down and still keep so it’s true to the core audience, you know? The thing is it has to be R, a hard R….We don’t want to dumb it down, we don’t want to make it PG-13. We want to keep it really edgy, and it’s a huge bill.

Predator was a sci-fi cinema classic. So after the tedious AvP movies, can the franchise regain its teeth with Nimród Antal’s Predators?

As a Predator fan, I only have memories of the classic 1987 original to cling onto. A film replete with classic moments, memorable characters, and endlessly quotable lines like “stick around”, “I ain’t got time to bleed” and “GET TO DERR CHOPPAH!”, which have long since passed into the movie-going geek’s vocabulary.

Ah, Rodriguez and Antal, the two men on whom all my hopes for Predators are pinned. Can they possibly deliver the sequel to Predator its fans truly deserve?

Two Mad Max Sequels Being Shot Back to Back?

I don’t think it has really sunk in for me yet that a new Mad Max movie is on the verge of going into production next month, and more importantly, that it will be live action, not animated as previously rumoured. With this project being talked about for so many years but Mel Gibson’s involvement unconfirmed, it seemed like it was just another pipe dream that would never actually happen.

However, after Tom Hardy (Bronson, Star Trek: Nemesis) was cast in the lead role, it very quickly became a reality. Now this week we have another exciting nugget of news: if the rumours are true, there is not just one but two new Mad Max movies in development!
