Thoughts and Prayers I Guess...
Death Wish, an Eli Roth film (not a great sign already), is about Bruce Willis being a lone vigilante gunman going around and shooting criminals. During the opening Sway in the Morning asks us if he’s a hero or a criminal. Criminal. Done. Finished.Read More
Don't @ me.
Eli Roth's remake of Death Wish just dropped its first trailer this morning, and let me tell you: it's the most NRA-centric, Republican thing I've ever seen—and I survived 2016.Read More

"It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage."
If you're not following Sylvester Stallone's Twitter then you have a problem, because tweets sound amazing if you read them in Sylvester Stallone's voice. But more than that, Stallone revealed some amazing news yesterday: Harrison Ford will join the cast of The Expendables 3 for some old-fashioned (pun intended) ass-kicking action.Read More

A proposed mission by the European Space Agency seeks to send a pair of spacecraft out to a nearby asteroid to test the effects of smashing one of the crafts into the asteroid at 6.25 km/second. The primary goal is to see how well a possible method of asteroid deflection would work, but it won't do anything as spectacular as actually blowing up the asteroid. I guess they're saving that honor for Bruce Willis.Read More

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins join the cast of Red 2 with Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, and John Malkovich reprising their roles. They've got a new director this time around though, Dean Parisot. You may know him from such films as Galaxy Quest. And well, that's all you need to know because Galaxy Quest is awesome. (via Deadline) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?Read More
In what will surely turn into a legal bloodbath should it ever actually happen, Bruce Willis is supposedly looking to take Apple to court over who owns the rights to his huge music collection. You see, when folks buy music via iTunes -- or nearly any other digital distributor -- they're not actually purchasing something that they can then hand off. In most cases, they're purchasing a license for personal use. It gets worse: These licenses are typically nontransferable.Read More

Sylvester Stallone Blames the End of Action Movies on Superheroes, Which We Thought Were in Action Movies
Sylvester Stallone is upset, you guys. Upset that action movies just aren't what they used to be. You know, back when men were men, and so were action movies. Now it's just a bunch of magic guys in tights who don't participate in any real action because their magic make it too easy. And that's not action. I mean, look at those freaking arms! Sylvester Stallone never let anyone do any CGI to him, I'll tell you that. But seriously, he said that action films are "fading away." Has he not been to the movies at all in recent years? Man, he's been working hard on Expendables 2, sequestered all the way up in that Tibetan mountain lodge, far away from civilization as we know it!Read More

The trailer for writer-director-auteur Wes Anderson's forthcoming film Moonrise Kingdom has dropped and it looks pretty fantastic. Set in the late 1960s, the film centers around a puppy love romance between two twelve year-olds that culminates in their running away, and the subsequent man hunt. Add Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, and (of course) Bill Murray, and it just gets even better. The 1960s setting and the very young cast are interesting moves for Anderson; he's used a '60s aesthetic in a lot of his movies and had very young actors in his movies before, but it will be interesting to see how his directoral abilities and stylized film making will work with the cast. I simply can't wait for the slow-motion walking scenes and daddy issues. See the trailer, after the break.Read More

In the universe where Pulp Fiction is recast with all Star Wars characters, Jabba the Hutt is obviously Marcellus Wallace, which means that Han Solo is Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis' character) and I am reeeeeally okay with that. For those of you who haven't memorized the entire contents of Pulp Fiction, I'll just mention that this video contains one of its least expletive laden dialogues, which might be useful information to you. (via Gamma Squad.)Read More
