Once Upon A Deadpool Trailer

November 19th, 2018

So, this is a strange one: it’s Deadpool 2, but reedited to achieve a PG-13 rating, and it has a framing device where Deadpool is telling the events of the film to a kidnapped Fred Savage, who is essentially playing the same role he did as the kid in ‘The Princess Bride’. As far as the meta humor goes, it’s pretty Deadpool appropriate. Plus, Ryan Reynolds only agreed to do the movie if some of the proceeds when to a charitable organization.

Once Upon A Deadpool will be a limited release in theaters starting December 12.

Phased Plasma Rifle in the 40 Watt Range

November 17th, 2018

“Just what you see, pal.”

A classic scene from an equally classic movie. But, seriously, having that many weapons out on the counter at the same time is really dumb. Even if your “customer” wasn’t a futuristic killing machine covered in synthetic skin.

For a live-action adaption of a 90s manga series, this actually looks pretty decent.

Newington, N.H. (November 15, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce the expansion of the Legion Series of firearms with the introduction of the P938 and P238 micro-compact pistols. Legion is an exclusive product line developed by SIG SAUER based on input from elite shooting professionals, and designed to exceed the expectations of the serious shooter.

HOTSHOTS 2019 calendar pays tribute to Playboy Magazine founder in Edgar Brothers’ erotic blast from the past

November 13th, 2018

Glamour girls with guns pictured in a variety of retro-style classic Playboy poses make the HOTSHOTS 2019 calendar a sexy blast from the past! Now in its 12th year, the annual production features some of the most desirable models in the UK and the latest military kit distributed by Edgar Brothers in a vintage shoot.

The brainchild of UK-based Edgar Brothers’ Police and Military division, HOTSHOTS has already raised nearly £150,000 for various Wounded Soldiers charities in the UK and United States since launching in 2008.

The 2019 edition, which was shot in Salt Lake City, features exposed tan lines and sexy swimwear from the sixties and seventies in a Hugh Hefner multicam theme. The renowned founder father and editor-in-chief of Playboy Magazine died in September 2017.

Stunning Lucie-Rose Donlan, a 20-year-old professional model and sponsored surfer from Cornwall, is this year’s cover girl. She is particularly proud to be featuring in HOTSHOTS for the first time due to her family’s military connection.

She said: “It means so much to be a HOTSHOTS girl. I’ve always admired the calendar and feel very honoured to model and get the front cover. It’s really special for me to be supporting Wounded Veterans as my dad served in the military for many years before taking early retirement due to injury, and my cousin is currently serving. I desperately wanted to be part of the calendar so that I could feel that I’m helping, in some way, to support such an amazing cause.”

UK-based Rosie Danvers, Katya Sanchez and Sabine Jemeljanova also feature for the first time, while Hotshots favourites Kelly Hall, Stephanie Pietz, Kayla Cadorna and India Reynolds star again in vintage poses.

Mike Newman, Director of Edgar Brothers’ Police and Military Division, said: “Every year we strive to improve on the previous year’s calendar and 2019 is no exception. The Hugh Heffner theme is simply great fun and a tip of the hat to a icon that achieved so much. The girls loved the retro-style shoot in Salt Lake City and are proud to be lending their support to a very worthy cause.”

HOTSHOTS 2019 can be delivered globally and you can purchase the calendar directly in the USA/CANADA – www.hotshotscalendar.com or the UK/Rest of World www.hotshotscalendar.co.uk

Peter Jackson’s Highly Anticipated WWI Documentary ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ Receives Special U.S. Release December 17 and 27, Presented By Warner Bros. Pictures and Fathom Events

November 12th, 2018

Tickets Go on Sale November 16 for This Two-Night Theatrical Event, Featuring an Introduction From World-Renowned Filmmaker Peter Jackson and Followed by a Special Piece on the Creation of This Trailblazing Documentary

DENVER – November 12, 2018 – Fathom Events has partnered with Warner Bros. Pictures to bring Academy Award winner Peter Jackson’s poignant WWI documentary “They Shall Not Grow Old” to movie theaters across the U.S. on Monday, December 17, with an encore presentation on Thursday, December 27. The film is presented in 2D and RealD™ 3D, and tickets go on sale on Friday, November 16, at www.FathomEvents.com and participating theater box offices.

Jackson recorded a special introduction to the film—which he has called his most personal—offering his perspective on why the film is important for audiences, who have never experienced WWI footage as anything but grainy black & white… and silent. In “They Shall Not Grow Old,” Jackson opens a window to the past in a way that has never been seen or heard before, noting, “Restoration is a humanizing process.” The screening will be immediately followed by special content offering firsthand insights into what went into this groundbreaking feat of research, filmmaking and storytelling.

The acclaimed documentary is an extraordinary look at the soldiers and events of the Great War, using film footage captured at the time, now presented as the world has never seen. By utilizing state-of-the-art restoration, colorization and 3D technologies, and pulling from 600 hours of BBC archival interviews, Jackson puts forth an intensely gripping, immersive and authentic experience through the eyes and voices of the British soldiers who lived it.

“We knew that partnering with Warner Bros. to bring this extraordinary documentary to U.S. audiences was essential,” said Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt. “Putting this documentary on the big screen via the Fathom network will further illuminate Peter’s work and allow moviegoers to see the impressive visual detail of the restored footage as though they were a part of that moment in time.”

Carolyn Blackwood, President and Chief Content Officer, New Line Cinema and executive producer on “The Hobbit” Trilogy stated, “This documentary is simply special on every level – it is an arresting and gripping way to humanize and honor those who served so bravely during WWI by using actual footage shot at the time and narrated with the voices of the soldiers who experienced it. Leave it to Peter to come up with a groundbreaking way to reflect back on a period in history that deserves another look.”

Jeff Goldstein, President of Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures, said, “With this being the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, I can’t imagine a more appropriate time to honor the courage of the soldiers who fought in WWI – what was then ‘the war to end all wars’ – many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice. Peter has made history come alive through the medium of film, and we are so pleased to be a part of bringing his vision to today’s audiences.”

Henry Introduces New Finishes and New Calibers

November 3rd, 2018

Henry Repeating Arms, the American firearms manufacturer based out of Bayonne, NJ and Rice Lake, WI is introducing nine new models that include engraved finishes for the Long Ranger rifle series and additional caliber options for the Single Shot rifle series. These new releases come less than a year after introducing over a dozen models at the beginning of 2018 as a result of customer feedback and suggestions.

The Long Ranger Deluxe Engraved Edition rifles are built to the same specs and performance levels as the original Long Ranger rifles announced in late 2016 with the most significant difference being the lightweight alloy receiver finished with a nickel plating, intricate scroll engraving, and lightly accented with 24K gold inlay. The Deluxe Engraved Edition is available in .223 Rem/5.56 NATO (H014D-223), .243 Win (H014D-243), and .308 Win (H014D-308) with an MSR price of $1,850.

The Long Ranger Wildlife Engraved Edition rifles provide another twist to the original Long Ranger finish with highly detailed engravings saluting some of North America’s most revered game. The receivers share the same nickel plating and 24K gold highlights as the Deluxe Engraved Edition rifles. The .223 Rem/5.56 NATO version (H014WL-223) features a single coyote head on the left flat of the receiver and a pair of full-figured coyotes on the right. The .243 Winchester version (H014WL-243) shows a single pronghorn antelope head against a background of rolling hills on the left side of the receiver, and a full-figured pair on the prairie on the right. The .308 Winchester rifle (H014WL-308) depicts a majestic bull elk in a mountain setting on its left, and a grazing pair on its right flat. The MSR price for the Long Ranger Wildlife Engraved Edition rifles is $1,850.

As an expansion to Henry’s line of premium break action single shot rifles and shotguns, both .30-30 Win and .357 Magnum are now available. Single shot rifles are often sought out for their dependable simplicity, lighter weight, or the challenge that they provide to hunters who value the more methodical approach required when only one shot is readily available at any given time. The .357 Magnum version, which can also shoot .38 Special ammunition comes in either a blued steel receiver (H015-357) or a hardened brass receiver (H015B-357). The .30-30 Win rifle is only available with a blued steel receiver (H015-3030). The MSR price for the brass .357 Magnum rifle is $576, and the MSR price for both steel versions is $448.
See more information here »

Until now, Henry’s youth-sized firearm offerings only came chambered in a .22 caliber. The new Single Shot Youth Rifle and Single Shot Youth Shotgun add 2 new options for youth hunters. The rifle is available in .243 Win (H015Y-243) and the shotgun is available in 20 gauge (H015Y-20). Youth hunters often learn the basics of responsible firearm handling with a .22 rifle and then graduate to a milder shooting, but more powerful round for game. Both of these youth models are finished with blued steel metal and American walnut stocks with a length of pull that is 1″ shorter than their full-sized counterparts. The MSR Price for each is $448.

All Henry firearms can be purchased through a licensed firearms dealer. Most dealers offer a discount off of the MSRP. For more information about Henry Repeating Arms and its products visit henryusa.com or call 866-200-2354.

Updated: UK-Exclusive Theatrical 4K Re-release Of ‘Escape From New York’

October 27th, 2018

On November 22nd, for one night only, select theaters in the UK are showing a 4K restoration of the cult classic John Carpenter film ‘Escape From New York’. This is in addition to ‘The Fog’, ‘Prince of Darkness’, and ‘They Live’, which have started showings as of yesterday, October 26th. The films has been restored using the original negatives, with color grading approved by Gary B. Kibbe and Dean Cundey, cinematographers who worked on the four films. These releases is courtesy of StudioCanal, a Franco-British film production and distribution company, which explains the regional exclusivity, but it still stings for John Carpenter fans here in the States and abroad.

However, the 4K restoration of the four films are slated for digital download and Blu-Ray release now through the month of November. Currently it looks like the home-release options are also UK (and likely Europe)-exclusive, however they could end up stateside, and hopefully they will.

Check out www.johncarpenter4k.co.uk for more details, and to purchase tickets for the films, if you’re in the UK.

Update: This might not be as UK-exclusive as I originally thought. While the news floating around is largely based around the UK showings, it turns out that ‘The Fog’ is currently having a limited release in theaters across the States. If you’d like to see it for yourself, do an internet search for ‘The Fog showtimes + your zip code’ and you might find a showing in your area. That’s how I managed to get my ticket.

No word, however, on whether the other three films are receiving a US release, but I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out.
