According to a new report, Andrew Dominik, the writer-director of ‘Chopper,’ ‘Killing Them Softly’ and one of my favorite films of the last decade, ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,’ has been set to pen the script for ‘Shaolin Temple.’ Justin Lin (Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6) is attached to direct the film, which is a remake of the 1982 film which marked the screen debut of iconic martial artist Jet Li, and was based on Shaolin folklore and set during the transition period between the Sui Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty.
Matthew J Fletcher has put together this great new ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘Peanuts’ mash-up piece to feast our eyes on.

A sequel has already been set for July 28th, 2017. James Gunn is returning to write and direct.

2 New Clips From Liv Ullmann’s ‘Miss Julie’ Adaptation – Starring Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell & Samantha Morton
With the film making its world premiere next month at the Toronto Film Festival, these two new clips have been releaseed for Liv Ullmann’s first film as a director in more than a decade, ‘Miss Julie.’ An adaptation of August Strindberg’s classic 1888 Swedish battle-of-the-sexes play, ‘Miss Julie’ is led by Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton.
Set on Midsummer’s Eve in a large country house, ‘Miss Julie’ details a battle of both sexes and classes, revolving around the eponymous daughter (Jessica Chastain) of a wealthy landowner, and her flirtation with and seduction of her father’s valet (Colin Farrell), a power struggle that has tragic consequences. The house’s cook and valet’s lover (Samantha Morton) observes the tryst as it unfolds. Look out for ‘Miss Julie’ later this year.
Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite to bring Miller’s visually stunning ‘Sin City’ graphic novels back to the screen in ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.’ Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more notorious inhabitants. ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ is the follow up to Rodriguez and Miller’s 2005 groundbreaking film, ‘Sin City.’
The main cast for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s long awaited sequel includes the original ‘Sin City’ cast members: Mickey Rourke as Marv, Jessica Alba as Nancy, Bruce Willis as Hartigan, Rosario Dawson as Gail and Jaime King as Goldie/Wendy. New cast members for the neo-noir crime action thriller include: Eva Green as Ava Lord, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny, Dennis Haysbert as Manute, Christopher Meloni as Mort, Lady Gaga as Bertha, Jeremy Piven as Bob, Stacy Keach as Wallenquist, Jamie Chung as Miho, Ray Liotta as Joey, Juno Temple as Sally, Julia Garner as Marcy, and Josh Brolin as Dwight. The film arrives on August 22nd.
This latest image has arrived online from Paul Thomas Anderson’s hugely anticipated crime drama, ‘Inherent Vice.’ The film, based on the 2009 crime novel by Thomas Pynchon, stars Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Jena Malone, Michael K. Williams, Katherine Waterston, Martin Short and Maya Rudolph. Jonny Greenwood is again providing the soundtrack after scoring Anderson′s ‘There Will Be Blood’ and ‘The Master’ (two masterpieces, in my eyes).
In addition to this image, New York Film Festival Director and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones recently opened up about ‘Inherent Vice’ during an interview with the Film Society Of Lincoln Center. On the tone of Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest flick, Jones said, “It’s like being in a time machine, going back to the time of mutton chops and Neil Young… it’s the first [Thomas] Pynchon film adaptation, and it really catches his tone. It really catches [his] antic nature: the crazy names of characters, the nutty behavior, and then also the emotional undertone. It has the flavor of Pynchon. It has this ‘Big Lebowski’ element to one side of it, but the emotional undertone, the desperation, the paranoia, and the yearning in the film… [Paul Thomas Anderson's] an absolutely amazing filmmaker and it’s incredible to see him responding to someone else’s creation and then building his own creation out of it.”
