RED 2 is a classic example of an inferior sequel

RED was a fun little movie, that was worth watching just for Bruce Willis being Batman, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich acting silly and above all Helen Mirren kicking ass in high heels. RED 2 struggles to recapture the magic of the original, but it's a perfect example of a sequel that doesn't have a good reason to… » 7/19/13 11:20am 7/19/13 11:20am

Bruce Willis shoots all the things in the first G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Despite the terribleness of the first film and the second film's weird delay, I remain generally pretty positive about G.I. Joe: Retaliation. And this first clip from the movie, in which Bruce Willis and The Rock have a brief chat and then shoot/blow up a great, great many things, does nothing to change that. However, … » 3/05/13 12:40pm 3/05/13 12:40pm

One of the most eagerly anticipated movies coming in fall is Looper, a time travel gangster flick from Rian Johnson (director of cult favorite Brick), starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis.

Two of the year's most anticipated films don't come out this summer — they're the time-traveling thriller Looper from Brick director Rian Johnson, and the new James Bond movie Skyfall.

New G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer pistol-whips the rest of summer's…

Holy crap, does G.I. Joe: Retaliation look like the kind of movie that requires you to sneak a bottle of rye into the theater and scream at the screen at the top of your lungs. (That's a good thing!) So many quips, so many guns, and all sorts of ridiculous high-tech gadgetry. This is the G.I. Joe movie we deserve. » 4/24/12 6:00am 4/24/12 6:00am

Here's Robert Rodriguez's movie for Nike, The Black Mamba, which stars Kobe Bryant as a basketball player with Last Dragon-like superpowers, Danny Trejo as a henchman with giant claws, Bruce Willis as some guy in a suit, and Kanye West as a supervillain who collects shoes (or something).

Robert Rodriguez's Black Mamba short stars Kanye West, Bruce Willis and …

Check out this strange trailer for Robert Rodriguez's Nike movie called The Black Mamba. Apparently Bruce Willis, who is the devil, wants Kobe Bryant's shoes (because Kobe's the greatest player in the world... *cough*).
