Sylvester Stallone is reportedly a no-go for The Expendables 4 and it sounds like his buddy, Arnold Schwarzegger, is taking a pass too. It wasn’t until the 2010 old school action-movie revival/homage The Expendables that ’80s icons Stallone and Schwarzengger finally shared the screen, though at the time Arnold was still governor of California and could only muster a brief cameo. Freed from the responsibilities of political office, Schwarzenegger was available for a larger role alongside Stallone in Expendables 2, and then came back for Expendables 3. The pair also appeared together in Escape Plan in 2013.
Marvel Television is going from strength to strength when it comes to its television properties. Bringing some of the lesser-known comic book characters to the small screen, they’ll continue that theme later this year when Inhumans comes to ABC, following an IMAX double episode premiere. Originally slated to be a film, fellow Marvel series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. did well to introduce the ideas of Inhumans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the movie was canceled (for now, it seems).
Last night’s Oscars were historic for several reasons, but the chief among them was the flub heard round the world. When Faye Dunaway announced that La La Land won Best Picture, that film’s crew came onstage to accept the award only to find out that Moonlight had actually won the prize. Not only was this win historic, but it made for one of the most awkward moments in Oscar history, one which the teams behind both films handled with the utmost grace and dignity.
While the first John Wick has its share of fist-fighting, the action is primarily comprised of intense, close-quarters gunfights. That trend continues in John Wick: Chapter 2, but everything is ratcheted up to eleven.
