Running with the Devil Trailer Teams Nicolas Cage & Laurence Fishburne in Cocaine Thriller

  • MovieWeb
Quiver Distribution dropped the trailer for the Nicolas Cage-led thriller Running with the Devil today. The National Treasure actor stars alongside the Matrix's Laurence Fishburne in the drug trafficking flick where, "From the fields to the streets, everyone is running with the devil."

When a cocaine shipment is compromised, the drug cartel's CEO, known as The Boss (Crawl's Barry Pepper) orders his most trusted henchman, Cage's The Cook, to audit the company's supply chain. Or as Nicolas Cage says in the trailer, he has "administrative issues [he has] to attend to." Joining him on the dangerous journey is a master drug trafficker known as The Man (Academy Award Nominee Laurence Fishburne).

The drugs are making their "perilous trek across international borders past gangsters, refiners, and couriers," but they're also being tracked by Federal Agents under The Agent in Charge played by Leslie Bibb (Iron Man) who, the trailer tells us,

Blade And Deadpool 3 Could Be The McU’s First R-Rated Movies

Marvel Studios have always been known as a PG-13 brand, and it’s that family-friendly nature that has seen the Marvel Cinematic Universe become the highest-grossing movie franchise in history to the tune of over $22 billion and counting at the box office.

Following the expansion of the McU onto television with the launch of the Disney Plus shows though, coupled with the announcement of the Mahershala Ali-starring Blade reboot and the acquisition of the foul-mouthed mercenary Deadpool as part of the Fox takeover, could the McU finally go R-rated in Phase Five?

Back when the Fox deal was first announced, Disney CEO Bob Iger didn’t completely rule out the idea, specifically citing the success of Deadpool and the need to differentiate the fourth wall-breaking, profanity-spewing character from the McU’s usual all-ages fare.

“We do believe there is room for the Fox properties to exist without significant Disney

New Once Upon a Time Poster Arrives as Margot Robbie Shares Tales of Sharon Tate

New Once Upon a Time Poster Arrives as Margot Robbie Shares Tales of Sharon Tate
I think it's safe to assume that, like me, one of your most anticipated movies coming out this year is the 9th film by Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie as the late Sharon Tate. And speaking of Robbie's version of Tate, today we have word via Robbie herself that her role in the film is meant to be a celebration of Tate's life. Not only that, but Robbie confirmed that during filming she wore a ring and a pair of earrings that initially belonged to Tate, which were lent to her by Sharon's younger sister Debra. Interesting approach, huh?

Margot Robbie says this.

"I guess it sounds like I'm being a bit spiritual or whatever, but it really did help me ground the character in something real. I wanted to honor her memory and bring the best parts of Sharon Tate forward.

Peppa Pig Screening Terrifies Kids with Horror Trailers Shown Beforehand
Imagine you're eight years old, innocent to the world, and ready to watch Peppa Pig: Festival of Fun with a giant smile spread across your face. Then you are forced to watch a terrifying young superhero tear through town ripping people apart, followed by a middle-aged woman luring teens into her basement with the promise of alcohol only so she can gruesomely kill them later. You'd be traumatized, right? Well, that's what happened to some U.K. youngsters who thought they were only seeing their favorite animated pig, and not previews for two of the gnarliest horror movies coming our way in the next couple of months.

Nicolas Cage Talks ‘Ghost Rider’ and Why Now Is the Time for a Proper “R” Rated Adaptation

Nicolas Cage Talks ‘Ghost Rider’ and Why Now Is the Time for a Proper “R” Rated Adaptation
I’d still argue that the Nicolas Cage-starring Drive Angry is the best (unofficial) Ghost Rider movie ever made, but Cage himself of course also starred in two actual Ghost Rider films: Ghost Rider in 2007 and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance in 2011. Both films were rated PG-13, and neither one blew up the box office in any sort of significant way. But, Cage believes, if they […]

Gary Friedrich, Ghost Rider Co-Creator, Dies at 75

Gary Friedrich, the comic book writer who created Ghost Rider, has passed away at the age of 75. Friedrich died of complications from Parkinson's Disease. The news was confirmed by his nephew, Chris Friedrich, via a Facebook post. Here's what Friedrich had to say in his post, which was accompanied by a photo of Marvel Spotlight #5, which served as Ghost Rider's first appearance.

"Today we lost a wonderful family member and the Creator of Ghost Rider, Gary Friedrich. Love you Uncle Gary you will be missed!!"

Dating back to the 1960s, where Gary Friedrich got his start with Charlton Comics, the man was a prolific comic book writer up until he retired from the industry in 2010. He penned the first appearances of Blue Beetle during that period, before commencing his work with Marvel Comics, getting his start with the publisher working on their western books, such as Rawhide Kid.

Note: With the film finally hitting DVD and Blu-ray, here’s a repost of our review of Mom and Dad from its cinema release back in March.

“My parents are going to kill me”. That’s a standard line from any number of teen movies, but it’s taken literally in this glorious comic horror from writer-director Brian Taylor (the Crank franchise), here reuniting with star Nic Cage after Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.

True to Taylor’s frenetic style, Mom and Dad wastes no time in getting down to business. An unexplained epidemic has caused every parent to have violent, murderous impulses towards their own children, despite remaining seemingly normal in all other aspects. After a

‘The Punisher’ and ‘Punisher: War Zone’ Set For 4K Releases

Before Netflix brought Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle to the digital streaming masses, there was Ray Stevenson. Before Stevenson there was Thomas Jane, and well before that, there was Dolph Lundgren, but I digress. Marvel’s most brutal character, The Punisher, has been beloved by fans ever since dawning the white boots on the cover of Amazing Spider-Man #129. The character has had a few cinematic adaptations over the years and two of them are receiving a 4K Ultra HD combo pack release from Lionsgate.

Program Description

Frank Castle vows vengeance when The Punisher arrives on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital) September 25 from Lionsgate.

Netflix Accused Of Favoring Tentpoles Over Indies — Produced By

  • Deadline
One prominent film agent says Netflix, which for years provided an outlet for independent films that otherwise might have struggled to find distribution at movie theaters, is gravitating to splashier cinematic fare as it ramps its movie production.

“The problem is, now they’re not buying those movies,” said Jessica Lacy, Head of International & Independent Film for ICM Partners. “So, they’ve really hurt my business.”

To be sure, Netflix secured the rights earlier this year to the next four films from the Duplass Brothers, the veteran independent American filmmakers behind The One I Love, Creep and The Overnight. But these days, Lacy says, Netflix is focused on producing originals in-house or acquiring films that will make a huge splash, like the $100 million fantasy movie Bright starring Will Smith, which attracted 11 million views in the first three days.

Exclusive Interview – Director Brian Taylor on Mom and Dad, Nicolas Cage freakouts and having to clear the rights to the ‘Hokey Pokey’

Tom Beasley chats to high-octane director Brian Taylor about his new film Mom and Dad, which features Nicolas Cage at his most Nicolas Cage…

Fans of Nicolas Cage at his nuttiest may have a new favourite movie when Mom and Dad screams its way into multiplexes this weekend. Directed by Brian Taylor, who previously worked with Cage in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance along with filmmaking partner Mark Neveldine, it’s a crazy tale of parents driven to attack and kill their children when a bizarre hysteria takes hold of their suburban neighbourhood.

Cage and Hellboy actress Selma Blair are two of those parents, who come up against kids with some Home Alone know-how that makes it more of a fair fight than you’d expect. If that sounds like a tough sell – and it does – then you won’t envy Taylor, who got on the phone with Flickering Myth

Ghost Rider 2 Director Wants R-Rated Movie, Not Lame Shield Version

Ghost Rider 2 Director Wants R-Rated Movie, Not Lame Shield Version
An R-rated Ghost Rider movie could have happened and, according to director Brian Taylor, it might have been pretty great. Unfortunately, Taylor went on to direct Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance, which is easily one of the worst comic book movie sequels ever made. But the movie started life as a screenplay more than a decade prior in an age long before Deadpool made R-rated comic book movies a very profitable proposition for studios. A crazy amount of rewrites ultimately destroyed what could have been.

This was all revealed by Brian Taylor in a recent interview. As he tells it, Ghost Rider should be presented in R-rated form and the original Spirit of Vengeance script, which was written by David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Blade), was very much the version of the character that fans deserve to see. Here's what he had to say about it.

"I think that Ghost Rider should be a rated-r,

Ghost Rider Director Says The Original, R-Rated Script Was A Classic

Spirit Of Vengeance director Brian Taylor believes the R-rated script for Ghost Rider was superior to the “vanilla” Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. version in every which way.

Chatting to Flickering Myth, the filmmaker touched base on David S. Goyer’s hardcore screenplay, which presumably would have formed the basis for at least one of the Nicolas Cage-fronted Ghost Rider movies. But as Taylor concedes, one of his biggest career regrets is not making the case for an R-rated adaptation, as he firmly believes that if he had the opportunity to produce the original script, the end product “would’ve been a classic.”

I think that Ghost Rider should be a rated-r, horror character. The original script that David Goyer wrote for that movie, which was actually written almost a decade before the first Ghost Rider film, was a hardcore, rated-r horror script and it was awesome.

Spirit of Vengeance Director Has ‘No Interest’ in Shield’s Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance co-director Brian Taylor says he has “no interest” in the version of the Rider featured on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series, and would prefer to see a R-rated version of the character brought to life instead.

Known for their off-the-wall filmmaking style and twisted sense of humor, Taylor and his frequent writing/directing collaborator Mark Neveldine made a name for themselves with the extremely R-rated Crank movies (starring Jason Statham) and sci-fi thriller Gamer in the 2000s.
