We catch a glimpse of Riddick; Dredd shows some e-motion; Angelina Jolie flies high in Maleficent and Angela Bassett and Dylan McDermott climb Olympus.
Vin Diesel has unleashed a new image from Riddick, the sequel to his surprise 2000 hit Pitch Black and its overblown 2004 follow-up, The Chronicles of Riddick. The first film was a neat little B-action movie, while the second installment was something of an overblown disaster. It was the cinematic equivalent of a McDonald’s employee opening up a gourmet restaurant after a customer told them that they made a good burger.
IMBD states that the film is now going by the title The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking. Let’s hope that changes – it’s Riddick-ulous.

The marketing for Dredd is well and truly ramping up. The Pete Travis directed actioner is going to Comic-Con and a new (and cool) motion poster has hit the inter-web. Check out the poster below, as well as a behind the scenes image from the forthcoming 2000 AD adaptation.

Someone has magic-upped a slew of behind the scenes images from Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent. The Sleeping Beauty retelling is currently filming and Angelina seems to be having a ‘Jolie old time’ on the set.
FYI – I don’t think that the cars will make the final cut of the film.
Angela Bassett and Dylan McDermott have joined the cast of Olympus Has Fallen. The film sees Gerard Butler’s Secret Service agent “pull a John McClane” when a bunch of Korean terrorists take-over the White House. Aaron Eckhart plays the President.
McDermott plays a Secret Service agent (like he did in 1993’s Clint Eastwood starrer In The Line of Fire), while Bassett is the Secret Service director. I get the feeling that Bassett is going to be doing a lot of shouting at Butler via walkie-talkie.

That’s it for now. See you at the movies.
