Piranha 3D – Official full trailer. How fast can you swim?

Posted by LiveFor on May 1, 2010

This does look like it is going to be hugely fun to watch when it gets released. A nice cheesy horror with a fantastic cast.

They’re back! Every year the population of sleepy Lake Havasu explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for a single, wild weekend – the 4th of July, a riot of sun, drunken fun and sex-crazed mayhem. But this year, theres something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers. Havasu sits in the crater formed by a prehistoric volcanic eruption, and when earth tremors tear open a crack in the lake floor, all hell breaks through. Piranhas – a million ravenous, razor-toothed monsters, unchanged since the dawn of time. Unstoppable killing machines acting blindly under one primeval impulse: to hunt down anything that moves and strip it to the raw, bleeding bone

Death Race: Frankenstein Lives – Sean Bean, Ving Rhames and Danny Trejo join Luke Goss

Posted by LiveFor on February 16, 2010

Well I thought this was going to be a low budget straight to DVD prequel to Paul W S Anderson’s 2008 film, but casting news from STYD makes me think that they are chucking a lot of money at this one as a few famous faces are joining Luke Goss (Hellboy 2) and Tanit Phoenix. Filming began over the weekend in South Africa on Death Race: Frankenstein Lives.

Goss plays Carl “Luke” Lucas, a man framed by the mob for the murder of a police officer. Sean Bean will co-star as Luke’s old mob boss; Ving Rhames is the man responsible for giving the greenlight to the Death Race (he’s apparently a “Rupert Murdoch” type); Danny Trejo is Luke’s pal in prison and Frederick Koehler will reprise his role as “Lists.”

Danny Trejo’s stock is on the rise with a starring role in Predators and Machete this new Death Race film is shaping up to be better than the first one.

Piranha 3D – Official trailer

Posted by LiveFor on January 19, 2010


The bootleg version of this trailer was out last week, but know it is out for real.

The LA Times recently had the news that The Weinstein Company was delaying the premiere of Alexandre Aja’s Piranha 3D, moving the action thriller from 16thApril 16 to sometime in August at the earliest.

This is being done to get out of the way of Lionsgate’s movie Kick-Ass, which also opens that weekend and may appeal to the same young audience. This could be very good thinking on their part. Although if it was released at the same time if there was any overflow from one film it would feed into the other.

Piranha 3D stars Elisabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss, Christopher Lloyd, Dina Meyer, Brooklynn Proulx, Quinn Lord, Riley Steele, Jessica Szohr, Jerry O’Connell, Cody Longo and Ricardo Chavira.

In the film, a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on beautiful Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents. But our heroine (Shue) is seriously outnumbered, and with only one chance to save the lake and her family from totally being devoured, she must risk everything to destroy the aquatic carnivores herself

Looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. What did you think of the trailer?

Surrogates, 2009 – Movie Review

Posted by LiveFor on September 27, 2009

Surrogates_lDirector: Jonathan Mostow
Starring: Bruce Willis, Radha Mitchell, Rosamund Pike, Boris Kodjoe, Ving Rhames
Running Time: 88 minutes

Score: 6 / 10

This review by Raymund Salao

Surrogates is a sci-fi movie about a future where every human being can connect their bodies into machines & they instantly live a different life through their robotic human-looking surrogates. Anybody can just stay home all day while they are connected online with their surrogates that can just easily live outside in the real world. But when a surrogate was killed along with its user, FBI agent Greer unravels a conspiracy that can lead to the death of billions of lives.

The storyline of this movie falls somewhere around the categories where movies like Blade Runner, Minority Report, and I-Robot belong. A movie that talks about how future technologies can affect human life and provide some philosophical point-of-view that is worth pondering on. The idea of technology progressing into and reaching the boundaries that it becomes an abomination of nature. The movie tends to be thought provoking, but does not make it good enough to be worth an entire evening of discussion.

There were some moments that seemed preachy, but could have been delivered more effectively if given a proper execution or interpretation. I am talking about the moments when our main character realizes the beauty of a world free from technological complexities. We also have the minor subplot of a corporation just concerned about safeguarding their own products. And a main character coming to the realization that these products eventually diminish the humanity of a person.

It is surprising that the weaker point of this movie is the action. The terminator rip-off scenes seemed bland and there was a chase scene with a female surrogate that looked goofy because it employed a “superhero” type of action. To make it worse, there are some visual effects that look like they’ve been rendered 15 years ago.

With the main character of Bruce Willis running around in his actual human form for most parts of the movie, we realize that he basically is the weaker person in this world of robotic mannequins, and yes we do see him bleed a lot in this movie (it is funny to note that Willis is one of those actors that just look cooler when he gets more scars and bruises, it’s like John McClane only without the crazy action). With him being the frail character, that alone clearly reminds you that this is not your regular Bruce Willis action flick. The movie just basically starts out as a futuristic detective-type movie then progresses into the same mood as Willis was in films like “Unbreakable” where he stumbles around a maze that leads him to some enlightening truth.

The high points of this movie lie in the storyline. Second is the way the movie creates this amazing-looking world of a future inhabited mostly by surrogates. The surrealism of the movie is not too far-out that most of what you see seem like they exist in the present world; there are no flying cars or rockets everywhere; its just the simple existence and presence of mannequin-like robots everywhere. The storyline may be good enough to be enjoyably satisfying, but it certainly is not the best, or perhaps not good enough to be groundbreaking.

All in all, SURROGATES is one of those good sci-fi movies that will simply entertain those who are fans of smart sci-fi movies. Action junkies may be a little disappointed though. This is a far cry from Blade Runner, but this certainly gives you a cheaper version of that kind of enjoyment. I loved it. But it is definitely not unforgettable.

The Tournament – Lots of assassins trying to kill each other

Posted by LiveFor on August 17, 2009

tournamentbCheck out the trailer for this film by Scott Mann as it looks very cool in a Hard Target kind of way (was that cool? Probably not but you get the idea). Although Mann appears to have directed a few episodes of Stars in Their Eyes which just seems a bit weird!

It stars Robert Carlyle having a very bad day, Kelly Hu (X-Men 2, Martial Law), Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction), Scott Adkins (Ninja, Wolverine), Ian Somerhalder (Lost) and Sebastien Foucan who is the cool parkour dude from Casino Royale.

Every seven years (although the poster says 10) in an unsuspecting town, The Tournament takes place. A battle royale between 30 of the world’s deadliest assassins. The last man standing receiving the $10,000,000 cash prize and the title of Worlds No 1, which itself carries the legendary million dollar a bullet price tag.

Give ’em Hell Malone – Cannes Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on May 7, 2009

I first mentioned the Russell Mulcahy (Highlander) film, Give ’em Hell Malone, back in September of last year.

Then there were teaser trailers, photos, and posters.

Now the new trailer for its Cannes debut has been released and it is below for your viewing pleasure.

Starring Thomas Jane, Ving Rhames, Elsa Pataky, Chris Yen, French Stewart, Doug Hutchison, Leland Orser, Eileen Ryan, Gregory Harrison and David Andriole.

I’m digging the look of this film. I love the whole pulp noir style of it all. What are your thoughts on it? Are you a fan of Thomas Jane? Will you be watching the film when it is released?
