Arrow Video’S November release schedule includes punk-rock classic Burst City

Arrow Video’S November release schedule includes punk-rock classic Burst City
Burst City is an explosive Molotov cocktail of dystopian sci-fi, Mad Max-style biker wars against yakuza gangsters and the police, and riotous performances from members of the real-life Japanese punk bands The Stalin, The Roosters, The Rockers and Inu.

In a derelict industrial wasteland somewhere on the outskirts of Tokyo, two rival punk bands and their unruly mobs of fans gather for a Battle of the Bands-style protest against the construction of a nuclear power plant, bringing them head to head with the yakuza industrialists behind the development of their turf.

This extraordinary celebration of Japan’s punk music scene of the early 1980s thrust Sōgo Ishii (now known by the name of Gakuryū Ishii), the underground filmmaking wunderkind behind such works as Half Human: Einstürzende Neubauten (1986), Angel Dust (1994) and Electric Dragon 80,000V (2001), to the next level and is regularly cited as an early landmark in Japanese cyberpunk cinema.

Mad Max: Furiosa Wants Chris Hemsworth in a Key Role?

Mad Max: Furiosa Wants Chris Hemsworth in a Key Role?
In news that should be strictly filed under "intriguing rumor", a casting call has reportedly leaked for the upcoming Mad Max prequel, Mad Max: Furiosa, that reportedly indicates that the studio want Marvel Cinematic Universe alumni Chris Hemsworth for a lead role. The George Miller directed movie will take us back in time and introduce a younger version the Mad Max: Fury Road character, Imperator Furiosa, with Hemsworth eyed to play a key figure from her past.

According to the leaked casting call, the studio are looking at the Thor: Ragnarok star to play Dementus, who is described as a man in his 30s-40s, who is "breathtakingly handsome" and possesses "an angel's face, scarred by a deep forehead wounded stitched together with shiny chrome staples." Considering that Chris Hemsworth was once described as looking like "a pirate and an angel had a baby" this certainly sounds like a role

Chris Hemsworth Reportedly Eyed To Lead Mad Max: Furiosa

Chris Hemsworth Reportedly Eyed To Lead Mad Max: Furiosa
After Fury Road had spent decades stuck in development hell, only to face further setbacks and endure a torturous shoot when it finally got the green light, George Miller would be insane in wanting to jump straight into another Mad Max movie. Then again, we’re talking about the same filmmaker that crafted one of cinema’s greatest post-apocalyptic franchises, wrote Babe, directed Happy Feet and cast Jay Baruchel as the villain in a $220 million Justice League blockbuster that was never made, so the unexpected also happens to be the norm for the 75 year-old.

Despite the troubles in bringing Fury Road to the screen, it turned out to be more than worth it when audiences were greeted by one of the greatest action epics ever made, one that went on to score near-universal critical acclaim, earn $375 million at the box office and land ten Academy Award nominations including Best Picture and Best Director,

Review: Train To Busan Presents Peninsula Offers Familiar Zombie Kills and Thrills

Review: Train To Busan Presents Peninsula Offers Familiar Zombie Kills and Thrills
Co-written and directed by Train to Busan’s Yeon Sang-ho, Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula swaps out the cramped, claustrophobic, panic-inducing train setting of its justifiably well-received predecessor, for bigger-budgeted mock or faux-wannabe blockbuster territory, expanding to the entirety of the South Korean peninsula. The country is abandoned by inept or corrupt political leaders after a biologically engineered virus escapes a government lab and overruns South Korea, forcing the outside world to eliminate all contact. Featuring smudgy, murky visuals and under-rendered haphazardly realized visual effects, poorly motivated, one-dimensional characters and a slapdash screenplay stitched together from far better ― and obviously, far more original ― science-fiction and horror entries like Escape from New York, Mad Max, and World...

Netflix Added 1 New Movie And 2 New TV Shows Today

Netflix Added 1 New Movie And 2 New TV Shows Today
Netflix is a never-ending content machine, adding new things to watch almost every single day of each month. August alone has seen a massive influx of new movies and shows for subscribers to absorb, including some incredible classics that fans have been ecstatic about. For instance, the entire Jurassic Park trilogy landed on the service early in the month alongside other beloved films like the bizarre Being John Malkovich, post-apocalyptic Mel Gibson flick Mad Max, and the unforgettable 1991 version of The Addams Family.

Plenty of people are probably still making their way through last month’s content, too, such as the second season of the hit show The Umbrella Academy, which landed on Netflix on July 31st. For those who’ve finally finished that up, though, the third and final season of The Rain was added on August 6th, ensuring no interruption to the flow of television shows to binge.

‘Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula’ Takes Zombie Movies Nowhere

‘Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula’ Takes Zombie Movies Nowhere
Since Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite hit the jackpot at this year’s Oscars, all eyes are on South Korea as a new film mecca. That piles expectations on Peninsula, writer-director Yeon Sang-ho’s follow-up to 2016’s Train to Busan, his surprise smash about zombies who crash a ride on a bullet train where even traveling first class earns you no perks from the walking dead. That film and its animated prequel Seoul Station, released the same year, served as a cutting critique of the class system that divides society into haves and have-nots.

One Of The Worst Movies Ever Made Is Dominating Netflix Today

One Of The Worst Movies Ever Made Is Dominating Netflix Today
If you’re a Netflix subscriber, you’re probably rarely without something interesting to watch in your spare time, as the platform has consistently churned out hit after hit, both in terms of beloved films and original programming. Thankfully, August has only cemented that fact further, offering a wide collection of classic movies and brand new original films and shows that have already done well for themselves.

Subscribers seeking a big dose of nostalgia, for instance, can dive into the entire Jurassic Park trilogy, The NeverEnding Story and its sequel, the original Mad Max or the live-action Dennis the Menace movie. Meanwhile, huge original drops, like the third and final season of The Rain or the Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt flick Project Power, have done exceptionally well and are doing their part to keep everyone engaged throughout the month.

Listen to One Hour Convo with George Miller About 'Mad Max' & More

Listen to One Hour Convo with George Miller About 'Mad Max' & More
"The hero is the agent of change." Without any Comic-Cons this year, the New York Comic-Con has decided to host virtual panels online instead. One of the best offerings so far is this fascinating one-hour-long Q&a conversation with filmmaker George Miller. Film journalist Josh Horowitz connected with Miller virtually over the web to talk with him about all kinds of different things - with a focus on celebrating five years since Max Mad: Fury Road. "Heath Ledger as Max? Did Furiosa become a tyrant? The deleted scenes we never saw? Tons in here." Horowitz also asked questions from other filmmakers (who love Miller) including Rian Johnson, M. Night Shyamalan, Patty Jenkins, and Gina Prince-Bythewood. Miller also talks about the Mad Max prequels / sequels and why Charlize Theron's Furiosa might not be the hero we all hope she is (by the end of Fury Road). A must watch/listen

Deadpool 2 Star Shares His Awesome Idea For A Spinoff

Deadpool 2 Star Shares His Awesome Idea For A Spinoff
Before Disney ended up purchasing Fox and acquiring all of their most marketable assets, it appeared as though X-Force would add a new dimension onto the long-running X-Men franchise. Having spent years stuck in development hell, The Cabin in the Woods‘ Drew Goddard was attached to write and direct a spinoff that would place the focus on Josh Brolin’s instant fan favorite Cable.

Of course, X-Force had already been introduced into the big screen mythology at that point, although the team’s involvement in Deadpool 2 was played entirely for laughs. Given the amount of recognizable talent that had been assembled for the lineup, it was very much in keeping with the irreverent nature of the Merc with a Mouth that they were all killed off in the space of a single scene.

Terry Crews’ Bedlam, Bill Skarsgard’s Zeitgeist, Lewis Tan’s Shatterstar, Rob Delaney’s Peter and,

Tom Hardy, Mel Gibson, Heath Ledger Were Perfect for ‘Mad Max’ Because of Their ‘Animal Magnetism,’ George Miller Says (Video)

Tom Hardy, Mel Gibson, Heath Ledger Were Perfect for ‘Mad Max’ Because of Their ‘Animal Magnetism,’ George Miller Says (Video)
What do Mel Gibson, Tom Hardy and the late Heath Ledger have in common, according to filmmaker George Miller? They all possess “animal magnetism,” which made them perfect for the lead role in “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

For the five-year anniversary of the film, Josh Horowitz’s “Happy Sad Confused” podcast and virtual New York Comic Con event Metaverse teamed up to celebrate Miller’s iconic film that starred Hardy and Charlize Theron. Gibson starred in the first three “Mad Max” installations as the title character before Hardy took over in the 2015 film — but Miller has said that Ledger was always on his mind for the role before his death in 2008.

“Every time [Ledger would] come to Australia, he’d call in and we’d talk and I always had him in mind,” Miller said. “Mel, when I first met him, Heath, when I got to know him, and Tom all have

Netflix Added 11 New Movies/TV Shows Just In Time For The Weekend
August has been a great month for Netflix so far, most notably thanks to the addition of plenty of classic films that will stoke the flames of nostalgia for many subscribers. You could sit down and watch the entire Jurassic Park trilogy, check out the often forgotten Adam Sandler comedy Mr. Deeds, watch Mel Gibson’s road rage in Mad Max, or have a few laughs with the quirky time travel romance Safety Not Guaranteed.

But as usual, Netflix isn’t content to rest on its laurels, and today marks a substantial content drop for the service that is adding plenty of new movies and shows. The even better news, however, is that quite a lot of it is stuff you’re not going to want to miss.

The biggest title dropping today is Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Project Power. This unusual take on the superhero genre deals

Justice League: Mortal Star Would Love The Chance To Join The Dceu

Justice League: Mortal Star Would Love The Chance To Join The Dceu
Up until the Snyder Cut came along, George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal was the most famous unmade movie starring DC’s all-star team. The Mad Max director had his cast and crew in place, storyboards were complete, costume fittings were being done and the budget was okayed at a mammoth $220 million before the plug was pulled just months before shooting was set to begin in the summer of 2008.

Warner Bros. got cold feet on the idea due to the success of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, with the studio not keen on having multiple versions of their superheroes existing on the big screen at the same time, which ironically looks to be the Dceu’s business model for the next few years with Michael Keaton returning to play Batman and The Flash set to open up the multiverse.

Babe 25th Anniversary Celebrated by James Cromwell: That'll Do Pig

Babe 25th Anniversary Celebrated by James Cromwell: That'll Do Pig
The 1995 movie Babe is the definition of the 'little movie that could' trope. Based on a children's novel about the adventures of a talking piglet that becomes a talented sheep-herder, Babe was made on a small budget with a little-known cast, but went on to become an enduring classic with a global fan-following, $254 million box -office gross and seven Oscar nominations. On the film's 25th anniversary, actor James Cromwell, who played the role of Babe's owner Arthur Hoggett, spoke about the unique way in which the story's talking animals were brought to life.

"It was this film about a pig and the animals talked and I thought, you know, they're gonna put peanut butter in their mouths. I knew nothing about CGI and nothing about what [director] Chris Noonan and [co-writer and producer] George Miller wanted to achieve, which was to make the animals relate to each other as if they were human beings.

The Best New Movies That Netflix Added This Week

The Best New Movies That Netflix Added This Week
Every week sees some cool movies being added to Netflix, but this week’s crop was particularly exciting. We got a couple of 90s classics, an all-time great and some big nostalgia hits. Let’s jump right in and look at the highlights.

Looming over everything is the Jurassic Park trilogy, comprising 1993’s Jurassic Park, 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park and 1999’s Jurassic Park III. Obviously, the real cinematic treat there is Spielberg’s original. Now approaching its thirtieth birthday, the blockbuster smash has aged like a fine wine and somehow, its CGI is still impressive even after huge technological strides in the intervening years. If you haven’t seen it before, grab some popcorn, crank up the subwoofer, turn down the lights and enjoy two hours of lawyer-munching, Samuel L. Jackson-eating, goat-destroying perfection.

As for the sequels? Well, I have a soft spot for The Lost World,
