Dwayne Johnson, or The Rock as some of us will always know him, is awesome. Sorry, I am a fan. In this age of franchises and IP takeovers, he really is a throwback to the MOVIE STAR. How many actors or actresses can generate the type of excitement Dwayne Johnson can these days. From his […]
Netflix has made a deal to potentially produce a series of films based on Robert B. Parker's ex-boxer-turned-private-eye Spenser, Deadline reports. Parker wrote 40 novels starring the Boston-based, poetry-loving, wisecracking sleuth that were then adapted in the 1980s into a television series with Robert Urich and Avery Brooks. Interestingly, the film would adapt the novel Wonderland, one […]

Patriots Day takes one of the biggest modern tragedies and plays it up as an over the top pat on the back to a fictional character instead of real people. Title Patriots Day Director: Peter Berg Summary: An account of Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis's actions in the events leading up to the 2013 Boston […]
Call of Duty sure does to go big for its live action trailers, often bringing in big directors and actors to try and put out best live action trailers in the industry. This year is no different. This year's effort for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare comes from Lone Survivor and Battleship director Peter Berg, […]
From Alejandro Jodorowsky to Ridley Scott to Peter Berg, many directors have attempted to tackling Frank Herbert's Dune. And Arrival director Denis Villeneueve has added his name to that list. While talking to Variety (as spotted by The Playlist), Villeneuve said adapting Dune is a "longstanding dream," but added that it is "a long process […]
This one comes from the Tracking Board and can only be considered a rumor for now. The report says that Transformers: Age Of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg will be Steve Austin in Universal Picture's remake of the Six Million Dollar Man. Harvey Weinstein is set to produce with Peter Berg on as producer and possibly […]
An intense new trailer for Peter Berg's Lone Survivor starring Mark Wahlberg as... just that.
The ESPN 30 for 30 Collector's Set Blu-ray box set is currently going for a very good price.
Peter Berg's follow up to Battleship looks set to be another love letter to the U.S. Armed Forces.
Smaller scaled but no less militaristic, Peter Berg's follow-up to Battleship is Lone Survivor, a "based on a true story" affair.
NBC are planning a new series set in a so-called “comic book” world, by which I mean there will be “super villains” involved.
Peter Berg gets... passionate.
Peter Berg's board game adaptation offers explosions, epic CGI, and grid-based combat. But nobody has the perspicacity to say 'You sunk my battleship!'. Can it still rule the waves?
There's a series of anti-piracy ads here in the UK that promote going to the pictures for the "moments worth paying for." The latest of these features some explodey and CG-heavy bits of Battleship – plus gawping looks at Taylor Kitsch and Rihanna as they in turn gawp at something off screen. It's nice to […]
It was somewhat surprising, to me at least, that Peter Berg and Will Smith had been having recent sit-down chats about the future for Hancock, their super anti-hero. But I'll be even more surprised, I think, if and when I see cameras are rolling on a sequel. It already seems unlikely enough that they're even […]
Here's the full TV spot for Battleship as premiered during The Superbowl. Liam Neeson alone is probably worth $50 million in the bank for them. Thanks to Fandango for the embed.
As well as the rush to adapt pretty much every caped character who graced the four-colour page into a big screen franchise, the last ten years have also seen an incredible amount of movies based on original superheroes. The most expensive, and highest profile, I believe, was Hancock, Peter Berg's super-powered Will Smith vehicle from […]
This new, international trailer for Battleship has surfaced and reveals, I suppose, how you sell a movie like this in Japan.* Rather as you would in America. The specifics were very different but the appeal was just the same. And while we're here, there's another version of the first trailer that's very much worth watching. […]
Battleship doesn't look very good at all.
