Mark Wahlberg Rumored For Six Million Dollar Man Remake

SixMillionMark Wahlberg is the star of one of the biggest movies of the summer, Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction. Since its opening on June 27, Age of Extinction has raked in over half a billion dollars, so robots are clearly a good thing for Wahlberg’s career. But now that he’s a certified big-screen action hero, where does he go from here? Well, rumor has it he might take on another classic property, and a character who’s part robot himself: The Six Million Dollar Man.

Hollywood has been trying to get a Six Million Dollar Man movie together for ages. Kevin Smith wrote a script adaptation back in the ’90s, and over the years various actors have been rumored for the lead role, including Chris Rock, Jim Carrey, and Leonardo Di Caprio. The revolving door of directors has including Todd Phillips and Brian Singer. Now The Tracking Board reports that Wahlberg is the latest to be courted for the role of Steve Austin, an astronaut who is rebuilt with all manner of fancy cybernetic technology after a terrible crash. Peter Berg is aboard to produce this latest stab at a Six Million Dollar Man movie, along with Harvey Weinstein, and The Tracking Board says Berg may direct as well.


Guardians Of The Galaxy: Eight Things We Learned From The 17-Minute Preview

GuardiansMainAudiences got their first extended look at Guardians of the Galaxy tonight at special screenings that previewed 17 minutes of footage from Marvel’s upcoming space opera at locations across the country. Naturally, GFR beamed an ambassador into the screenings to get the skinny. We’ll go into spoiler territory after the jump below, but the footage was all from early in the film, so you can read ahead without ruining any major surprises. If you do want to remain pristine and totally unspoiled, however, we’ll just give you the good news: what we saw looks outstanding. It’s fast-paced, it’s funny, the cast is stellar, and the world director James Gunn and his collaborators have created is vivid and exciting enough that I can’t wait to see more. Early comparisons have been tossed around to The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark, and while I’m not ready to say Guardians will be as good as those two, I do feel comfortable guaranteeing Guardians will be one of the best movies of the summer from a pure entertainment standpoint. You can check out the new trailer they released tonight right here, featuring tons of new footage.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Extended Trailer Delivers Villains And Michael Rooker

If you were a part of the lucky crowd who got a chance to watch the 17-minute preview of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy tonight, then I bid you a fond congratulations. (You can read David’s report on the footage right here.) I can’t imagine watching that much footage without actually sitting down for the entire feature, but apparently Marvel has no problems tempting fans’ appetites that way. Instead, I engorged myself on the extended trailer that was released, which features almost as much new footage as the film’s very first preview did. This movie is going to be amazing!


Israeli Apocalypse Thriller jeruZalem Debuts Large-Scale First Images

jeruZalemHere at GFR, we’re pretty used to things trying to destroy the world as we know it. More often than not, Earth’s population falls victim to roaming hordes of zombies, or extremely contagious pathogens of differing origins. But we’re not sure exactly what’s going on in jeruZalem, the second feature from Israeli directors Doron and Yoav Paz, but at least we have some imagery to go along with their vague synopsis.

The Paz Brothers recently spoke with Bloody Disgusting and revealed the inspirations behind the production, as well as the very first jeruZalem stills. These are some pretty interesting pictures that give the film scope, as well as a skinny-armed potential threat. The brothers’ description of how they created the film makes me a little wary, as it sounds like there might be some F.P.V. shots as well as normal cinematography.


The Purge: Anarchy Unleashes An Insane Extended Clip And Photo Gallery

The more we see from The Purge: Anarchy, the super-fast follow up to last year’s low-budget moneymaker, the crazier it looks. And so far, nothing has looked quite as bat-shit insane as this extended new clip that is essentially an entire scene for you to examine before the film opens on July 18. It should give you a good frame of reference to use when deciding whether or not to go see this in the theater.

Set on the same night at The Purge, Anarchy gives you a wider view of violent, dystopian world where the government legalizes all crime for 12-hours one night every year so society can get out its collective ya-yas. While the first movie was essentially set in a single house in a wealthy suburb, framed as a home invasion story, the follow up shows you have the proverbial other half lives. Instead of focusing on one family, this movie follows three different story threads from deep within the inner city.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Team Up With A Powerful Former Ally In This Pizza Hut Ad

You may not know this, and this could come as quite a shock, but the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles really like pizza. Shocking, I know, they are turtles after all, not a species known to chow down on pizza in the wild, but somewhere along the line, between encountering a powerful mutagen, extensive martial arts training, and entering adolescence, they developed a taste for the Italian delicacy. And now the Heroes in a Half Shell have teamed up with a powerful former ally to rake in a little extra dough (see what I did there?), as they’ve joined forces with Pizza Hut.

From the inception, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has always been one massively merchandised franchise, despite the misgivings of creators Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman. There have been countless toys, games, video games, movies, TV shows, and various other tie ins, and Jonathan Liebesman’s upcoming version is going to be no exception.
