Predators – First sneak peak and a poster

Posted by LiveFor on March 13, 2010


A bold new chapter in the Predator universe, Predators was shot on location under Rodriguez’s creative auspices at the filmmaker’s Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and is directed by Nimród Antal. The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators. In addition to Adrien Brody, the film stars Topher Grace, Alice Braga, and Laurence Fishburne. Co-starring are Walton Goggins, Danny Trejo, Oleg Taktarov and Mahershalalhashbaz Ali.

Check out the Predator Dog below via io9 and the poster from STYD.

The footage debuted at SXSW.

What do you reckon? Is this the film to bring the Predator back to the forefront of kick-ass monster action?

Repo Men – New posters for the Jude Law sci-fi film

Posted by LiveFor on January 23, 2010

In the futuristic action-thriller Repo Men, humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you dont pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its propertywith no concern for your comfort or survival.
Jude Law plays Remy, one of the best organ repo men in the business. When he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the companys top-of-the-line heart-replacementas well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his hearts no longer in the job. When he cant make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remys former partner Jake (Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker), to track him down.
Now that the hunter has become the hunted, Remy joins Beth (Alice Braga), another debtor who teaches him how to vanish from the system. And as he and Jake embark on a chase across a landscape populated by maniacal friends and foes, one man will become a reluctant champion for thousands on the run.

Predators – Photos from the shoot. Look at the Predators

Posted by LiveFor on January 16, 2010


Here are some great behind the scenes photos from Nimród Antal directed Predators produced by Robert Rodriguez. You can see Adrien Brody and a whole heap of Predators. Lots more pics here.

The film follows the story of a group of people (soldiers, cops, killers etc) who find themselves stranded on an alien planet and are “hunted by members of a merciless alien race known as Predators.”

The main cast is as follows:
* Royce, a Steve McQueen type – Adrien Brody
* Cuchillo, a Mexican enforcer for a drug cartel who has twin uzis strapped to his back – Danny Trejo
* Nikolai, a bear of a Russian armed with a four-barrel gas-powered rotary machine gun – Oleg Taktarov
* Isabelle, a French woman armed with a sniper rifle – Alice Braga
* Stans, a San Quentin prisoner with a shaved head, a scorpion tatto on his neck and armed with a prison-made knife – Maybe Walter Goggins
* Mombasa, an African member of the Sierra Leone death squad – Mahershalalhashbaz Ali
* Hanzo, a bad ass Japanese Yakuza enforcer
* Edwin, an unassuming man who was formerly on the FBI’s most-wanted list – possibly Topher Grace

So I think we are seeing Mombasa, Nikolai and Royce. Now if we only knew who Laurence Fishburne was playing.

Repo Men – Red Band Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on December 24, 2009


This is the first I have heard of this one. It has nothing to do with the excellent Alex Cox film Repo Man but looks like it could be good.

In the futuristic action-thriller Repo Men, humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you don’t pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its property…with no concern for your comfort or survival.

Jude Law plays Remy, one of the best organ repo men in the business. But when he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the company’s top-of-the-line heart-replacement…as well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his heart’s no longer in the job. When he can’t make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy’s former partner Jake (Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker), to track him down.

Now that the hunter has become the hunted, Remy joins Beth (Alice Braga), another debtor who teaches him how to vanish from the system. And as he and Jake embark on a chase across a landscape populated by maniacal friends and foes, one man will become a reluctant champion for thousands on the run

Adrien Brody to be the lead in Predators

Posted by LiveFor on October 7, 2009

brodyThis is a bolt from the blue. Instead of going for the muscle bound tough guy it looks as if Robert Rodriguez and Nimrod Antal have gone for an Oscar winning actor. That’s right Adrien Brody (King Kong, Giallo, The Pianist, The Jacket, The Brothers Bloom) is heading back to Skull Island or rather Predator Planet.

The news comes from Heat Vision

Topher Grace (That 70s Show, Spider-Man 3) is in negotiations to join the action-adventure movie, to which Alice Braga (“I Am Legend”), Mahershalalhashbaz Ali (“The 4400”), Walt Goggins (“The Shield”), Rodriguez mainstay Danny Trejo and UFC fighter Oleg Taktarov have also been cast.

Written by Rodriguez, Alex Litvak and Michael Finch, the script follows a group of elite warrior-types who are being hunted by members of a race of merciless alien trackers called Predators.

Brody is a man who ends up inheriting the mantle of leader and is known as a hunter of men. Grace would play an accountant-type whose unassuming facade masks a dangerous serial killer.

Braga is the tough female killer. Ali is a man not afraid to die, Goggins is the loose canon of the group and Taktarov is a former Russian special ops agent.

Trejo, already cast, is Cuchillo, a hardened warrior with twin uzis strapped to his back.

So looking at the list of characters we can now put actors to the names.

* Royce, a Steve McQueen type – Adrien Brody
* Cuchillo, a Mexican enforcer for a drug cartel who has twin uzis strapped to his back – Danny Trejo
* Nikolai, a bear of a Russian armed with a four-barrel gas-powered rotary machine gun – Oleg Taktarov
* Isabelle, a French woman armed with a sniper rifle – Alice Braga
* Stans, a San Quentin prisoner with a shaved head, a scorpion tatto on his neck and armed with a prison-made knife – Maybe Walter Goggins
* Mombasa, an African member of the Sierra Leone death squad – Mahershalalhashbaz Ali
* Hanzo, a bad ass Japanese Yakuza enforcer
* Edwin, an unassuming man who was formerly on the FBI’s most-wanted list – possibly Topher Grace

There you have it. The Predators are getting people to hint.

Shooting begins next month in Hawaii then moves to moves to Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin. The movie is slated for a July 9, 2010, release.

I think this is all great news. They seem to be getting a mix of great actors and tough guys involved so fingers crossed we should get a worthy Predators movie.

What do you think about Brody playing the lead? Which character do you think will die first?

Crossing Over – Poster for Harrison Ford film

Posted by LiveFor on January 31, 2009

Bad, bad photoshopping to stick the four faces together on the top of the poster and what’s with Jim’s stubble? Like on of those iron filing magnet game things. Finally I think Harrison Ford has just smelt something bad.

Crossing Over is written and directed by South African filmmaker Wayne Kramer (The Cooler, Running Scared). The film also stars Sean Penn, Ray Liotta, Ashley Judd, Alice Eve, Alice Braga, and Jim Sturgess.
