There are some action movies that just embrace the total absurdity of their own existence, and invite you to come along for a crazy silly ride. These are among my favorite sorts of movies out there, and I’m happy to report that The Last Witch Hunter is a pretty good addition to this canon.
There's no shortage of praise for Ridley Scott, Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg and the rest of Hollywood's science fiction and fantasy titans. But who are the next generation of myth-makers?

Breck Eisner's Escape From New York remake just took a strange and interesting twist. Rumor has it, Jeremy Renner is being courted for Snake Plissken... Say what?
Director Breck Eisner is itching to work with his Crazies lead Timothy Olyphant again, but does this mean there's a spot for him in Eisner's upcoming Escape From New York remake? Sounds like there's a chance.
On paper, The Crazies sounds like a B-grade cliche: Bioweapons-made zombies terrorize small town. But the movie defies expectations. The Crazies is a scary, smart thriller that tweaks its tropes and offers a non-preachy fable about the military's dark side.
We talked infectious diseases with The Crazies director Breck Eisner. And learned the great pains he took to make sure George Romero's film was updated correctly. Rule number one: These people aren't zombies, they're alive — and full of rage!

The Creature From The Black Lagoon's fish-man is back, in a new remake of the 1954 classic. And the new version of the Creature has already been designed.
