It's almost hard to believe that Cinemax's hit series, Banshee, is coming to a close after this year's fourth and final season. Bearing this in mind, it'll be interesting to follow if you've been keeping up with actor Antony Starr and actress Ivana Milicevic as their respective characters deal with troubling story arcs that pit them against some of the worst circumstances they've had to face.
Director Ilya Naishuller's Hardcore Henry (formerly Hardcore) is poised to release on April 8, and STX Entertainment is promising a robust campaign to promote the film this Spring and Summer. For this, SXSW Film Festival attendees can expect to catch this one in March earlier on with the trailer premiering on February 10 with a new logo that Naishuller has brandished on Instagram which you can view below.

Apart from most things, it seems, there are things even Deadpool loves along with chimichangas and the color red. For this, we bring you the latest promo accompanying today's announcement from Manchester United in its global partnership with 20th Century Fox in lieu of upcoming film along with X-Men: Apocalypse in May, and Independence Day: Resurgence in June and other titles thereafter.
Any chance you may have come across actor Ethan Hawke's name in recent history may be due to the fact that a small screen adaptation of the Antoine Fuqua's hit film, Training Day, is getting a spot on television in the months ahead. I'd call this a pretty momentous occasion now as it seems that word is now out that he's reportedly in talks to reprise his role in the new series for CBS, thus reuniting with directot Antoine Fuqua for the pilot.
William Spencer and Caine Sinclair have their work cut out for them with the online premiere of the new short, Two Bellmen Two. The JW Marriot hotel chain sets the stage for our lead actors in the company of music and movement performance troupe, Substance Over Hype with stunt sequences staged by James Hutchison, and actress Frieda Pinto and actor Ali Al Sayed also starring.
CBS is currently busy working on bringing a preceding story arc to its small screen adaptation of the hit ABC series, McGyver. Furious Seven helmer James Wan is executive producing and directing a pilot for that iteration in place of previously hoping to direct a feature film which has been in the works for sometime now and once thought to be not happening at all.
It's taken roughly a couple of years to make happen, but now it's finally a reality with a future certain enough that it garners a series. I speak of director Riccardo Gabrielli R.'s latest treatment of author and creator Nicolas Rodriguez's digital comic franchise, Zambo Dende, a welcoming opportunity for film studios to venture into Latino superhero property beyond less obscure figures like Zorro or Miles Morales's Spider-Man, or that of Marvel and DC.

Writer and director Ross Patterson didn't have many fucks to give last year when he went to YouTube and released his no-budget hybrid creature feature, Helen Keller VS. Werewolves. Rest assured, it wasn't exactly a setback as it garnered him just enough attention from the film-hungry folks ovet at military brands Article 15 and Ranger Up who took to Indiegogo to crowdfund their latest sci-fi zombie romp, Range 15.
Last summer, Lantica Pictures and Sobini Films announced partnering for a futuristic take on pulp author Johnston McCulley's 1919 swashbuckling vigilante hero, "Zorro". The project is already being shopped in the marketplace as of late last year through Pantelion Films and now we've moved forward with a director in the form of filmmaker Jonas Cuaron.
Fans looking toward Heist helmer director Scott Mann for a follow-up of his 2009 action thriller, The Tournament, may be in for a longer wait. For now though, you can expect to find him around London sometime this Summer or Fall for the upcoming production of his newest hostage thriller, Final Score.
In an interesting development, some of us know actor Zach McGowan from the STARZ hit series, Black Sails while others may know him from the hit SHOtime comedy drama, Shameless. Well, as of this point, we can now chalk him up as one of at least two actors who will be portraying iconic boxing underdog Chuck Wepner on film, and for this, it's director Ken Kushner's American Brawler.

Emmy award-winning producer Alex Graves (The West Wing, Homeland, Game Of Thrones) has been tapped to direct NBC's forthcoming pilot for the series adaptation of hit film franchise, Taken, according to Deadline. Graves will direct from a script by executive producer and showrunner, Alex Cary, which will focus on the origins of principal franchise lead character, Bryan Mills, showcasing how he acquired his particular set of skills.
Director Fred Olen Ray's career of well over 100 films is a litany of DTV action, horror and other genre titles now brings us his newest, Sniper: Special Ops. Actor Steven Seagal, seen in recent years taking to his business interests in Russia, is back on set here in the role of soldier on a mission that, surely enough, goes belly up.
