A Venom Sequel Is Happening, So Start Stocking Up on Snacks

Venom arrived in theaters back in October to middling reviews, but that didn't stop talk of all the potential sequels and spinoffs it might spawn.

In an August interview with Total Film, Tom Hardy revealed that Marvel could make up to three Venom movies, saying, "We've signed up for three of them. So it's very much an open case. We'll see what people's responses are to it." Variety also predicted that if the film delivered at the box office, then Sony would move fast to introduce a number of heroes and villains from the Spider-Man universe in the form of sequels to the Hardy outing, as well as stand-alone films. At the moment, Sony's licensing pact with Marvel affords it the rights to around 900 characters, so the possibilities are pretty much endless.

‘The Equalizer 2′ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Denzel Washington, Pedro Pascal, Ashton Sanders, Melissa Leo, Orson Bean, Bill Pullman, Jonathan Scarfe, Kazy Tauginas, Garrett Golden, Sakina Jaffrey, Tamara Hickey, Karen Strong | Written by Richard Wenk | Directed by Antoine Fuqua

Denzel Washington returns as ultra-violent vigilante Robert McCall in this slick sequel that marks the actor’s fourth collaboration with director Antoine Fuqua. Handsomely made and superbly acted, the film is a stronger outing than its predecessor, smoothing over several of its rough edges.

After a fun prologue on a train to Turkey that has an in-disguise McCall violently rescuing a young girl, the plot switches to Brussels, where a suspicious double murder draws the attention of his former CIA boss Susan (Melissa Leo) and his old colleague Dave (Pedro Pascal). When Susan winds up dead, McCall finds himself targeted by a squad of gun-toting goons and sets out on a trail of bloody revenge.

The Equalizer 2 and more of the best action movie sequels

While comic book adaptations are perhaps the most dominant genre in cinemas today, the true heroes shouldn’t be overlooked. We are, of course, referring to the normal men and women who take centre stage in good, old-fashioned action movies!

Now, an argument could be made that superheroes also fit into that category because, at their core, those too are action movies (a point we think you’ll agree with after reading through this post).

Regardless, as many great action movies as there are out there, how many great action movie sequels can you actually remember? Well, those are what we’re taking a look at today as we delve into the follow-ups which are not only great but arguably out-action their already impressive predecessors…

Win The Equalizer 2 merchandise and Blu-ray

To mark the release of The Equalizer 2, out now, we’ve been given 3 set of merchandise and a copy of the movie on Blu-ray to give away.

Denzel Washington returns to one of his signature roles in the first sequel of his career. Robert McCall serves an unflinching justice for the exploited and oppressed – but how far will he go when that is someone he loves?

In The Equalizer 2, Robert McCall has moved on… instead of selling you home improvement goods, he’s your Lyft driver, but the avenging angel who has fought for justice for strangers finds himself fighting a more personal battle than ever before. Many of McCall’s secrets are revealed – his training, his skills, his wife, his relationship with Susan Plummer. When someone close to McCall is killed, he seeks vengeance for his friend – and for himself.

Joseph Baxter Nov 13, 2018

Game of Thrones alumnus Pedro Pascal is set to headline Disney’s streaming Star Wars spinoff series, The Mandalorian.

The Mandalorian has selected its titular Mandalorian in Pedro Pascal!

The small-screen Star Wars Universe has landed its first original headlining TV star in Pascal, who, as Variety reports, is in the midst of negotiations after having been offered the lead role in The Mandalorian, a show touted for the upcoming streaming service, Disney+. The series – which will be shepherded by a high-profile writer/producer/showrunner in Jon Favreau – will prospectively see Pascal play an unnamed main character, previously described by Favreau as “a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy.”

Indeed, The Mandalorian will serve as a showcase of the seedier, non-Jedi-related aspects of the Star Wars mythos, set sometime in the decades between the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the Sequel Trilogy’s Empire-emulating retro-fascists,
