Point Break Is Getting A Remake

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015


I didn’t even hear about this until yesterday.

The synopsis:

In Alcon Entertainment’s fast-paced, high-adrenaline action thriller “Point Break,” a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways.

Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the architects of this string of inconceivable crimes.

It’s “inspired” by the original, yet uses the same title.

Comes out this Christmas.

Black Angel

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Roger Christian was a set decorator for Star Wars Episode IV. Christian’s work impressed George Lucas enough that he gave Christian the go ahead to turn his fantasy script into a short film, which would screen before Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. The film, titled Black Angel, was only screened in a few cinemas in 1980, and was thought lost until negatives of the film were found and restored.

The film has since been uploaded to YouTube, with a special introduction from the director himself.


Fanmade Immortan Joe Respirator Mask

Monday, May 25th, 2015


Looking to cosplay as Fury Road’s Immortan Joe in the near future? Then you might want to consider a “Skull Respirator Half Mask” currently available on Etsy. Made from cold cast aluminum fiberglass with resin and rubber parts, it comes with an adjustable elasticated strap, and foam padding on the inside.

Build time is 4-5 weeks due to increased demand, but it looks worth the wait.


Check Out Crossbones From The Upcoming Captain America: Civil War

Sunday, May 17th, 2015


With Avengers 2 out, and Ant-Man on the horizon, it’s no surprise to see the work continues on the Marvel Cinematic Universe projects. Such is the case with this early picture of Crossbones from the currently-in-production, yet slated for a May 2016 release, Captain America: Civil War.

Crossbones, one of Captain America’s most iconic arch-nemeses in the comics, can be seen kitted up in gear from various manufacturers, including S&S Precision, Benchmade Knives, Safariland, G-Code, and AustriaAlpin/ITW.

If we didn’t know any better, we’d swear this looks like something our friends at Tactical Pro Shop were involved with, as they often are. We’re looking forward to seeing what other gear pops up, and for the movie in general.

YouTube channel CineFix produced this video on the technical aspects of one of the most iconic moments in John Carpenter’s The Thing, the defibrillator scene. They also did a great video on the Chestburster scene from Alien back in January that’s worth a look.

Suicide Squad – Jared Leto’s Joker Revealed

Saturday, April 25th, 2015


Yesterday evening, ‘Suicide Squad’ director David Ayer revealed the look of Jared Leto’s Joker for the upcoming film; it’s certainly different than previous incarnations. My opinion? I’m not a fan of the look, but time will tell if Lito’s performance will outdo the whole Hot Topic thing they have going on here.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer 2

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

I know it’s just a trailer, and as great a trailer it is they’re meant to entice you to go watch the film, but Lucas isn’t directing The Force Awakens, so that’s excitement enough.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens drops Christmas, 2015.

Marvel’s Ant-Man – Trailer 1

Monday, April 13th, 2015

Unfortunately, like most trailers, the first full trailer for Ant-Man spoils too much of the plot. However, it also makes the movie look pretty kick ass, so… fair trade off, I suppose?

Gillette Avengers Commercial

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

So, Gillette is doing a collaboration with Marvel for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron film. Honestly, I’d rather have the Avenger-themed razors they mocked up (even without the super powers) then whatever Fusion ProGlide they’re trying to sell.

Spectre Teaser Poster

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015


First observation nearly everybody made (thanks ‘Archer’): Bond’s wearing a Tactleneck!

Second observation: We get it’s iconic, but you can do a lot better than a Walther PPK is this day and age, Bond! Also, keep your damn finger off that trigger!

Third observation: As with ‘Archer’, the outfit is clearly a ‘Live and Let Die’, possibly even a ‘Bullitt’ reference.
