For the last two years or so (so, since around 2016), director, Paul W. S. Anderson — who’s directed two of my favorite films: Mortal Kombat and Event Horizon) has been working on a Monster Hunter movie. While I can now actually audibly hear you roll your eyes to the back of your head over the scoffing, we now also know that the film has a star, Anderson’s wife and actress Milla Jovovich. For your own safety I heavily recommend that you stop rolling your eyes further back; just looking out for you. Anyway, Variety reports that Anderson recently delivered the latest draft of the film’s script, and the Monster Hunter film adaptation will begin shooting this September in South Africa. It has also been reported that special effects studio Mr. X will be involved, having worked with Anderson on the special effects for the Resident Evil movies.

The sprawling and well-preserved 16th century Italian villa featured prominently in the Academy Award nominated coming-of-age film, Call Me By Your Name, is for sale. The film’s director Luca Guadagnino told Architectural Digest “”I had known that house for many years; I even dreamed of buying that house. I knew where I was going to set the action of the film—this place with faded, aristocratic charm, that a professor and his wife might have inherited but can’t quite keep up.” Continue reading “The Italian Villa Featured in “Call Me By Your Name” Is Up For Sale”
Around this time last year, it was reported that Donnie Yen cast to star in a film based on the game Sleeping Dogs, developed by United Front Games and published by Square-Enix in 2012. To be perfectly honest, the casting of Yen as the game’s protagonist, Wei Shen, makes perfect sense; Sleeping Dogs is essentially a mash-up of numerous films in Yen’s filmography. Taking to Instagram without even saying (while somewhat implying) that the film was in shooting, Yen confirmed that this latest video game-to-film adaptation has entered production.

It’s stories like these that remind me how much I love professional wrestling…
One week ago, Los Angeles-based Bar Wrestling held its final show of the year. This promotion’s shows are so well-received and in such high-demand that many shows are standing -room only. They’re kinda of like CHIKARA and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), as Bar Wrestling puts on a fun show filled with some of Southern California’s best wrestling talent (here’s some of their DVDs/Blu-rays from Highspots). On their last show for 2017, Joey Ryan dressed up as sexy Santa Claus and teamed up with Candace LeRay (dressed as an elf) and Dick Justice (as a “Supercop Santa”) against “Professional” Peter Avalon, Ray Rosas and (Horn)Swoggle. My match was really funny and…wait…hold on…is…is that…THAT’S MACAULAY CULKIN SITTING IN THE FRONT ROW!
