Thanks a lot, Meryl Streep, for ruining the Demolition Man sequel

In the annals of action cinema from the ’90s, you’ll find a bevy of kinetic marvels that can still dazzle today. You’ll also find the 1993 movie Demolition Man. You will not, however, find a sequel to that deeply stupid but weirdly enjoyable film. And for that, it seems, we might have Meryl Streep to thank—or not…

Late last year, Sylvester Stallone was accused of assaulting a 16-year-old girl in the ’80s along with his now-deceased bodyguard Michael De Luca, with the accuser claiming both men forced her to give them oral sex and said they’d “beat her head in” if she told anyone.

It’s Rumor Time: Ivan Drago might actually be in Creed 2

Ryan Coogler’s Creed was much better than anyone really predicted, which means it’s pretty much guaranteed to get a sequel at some point—even if Coogler doesn’t come back.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 smuggles more goofball fun into the MCU

B

James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy was a stock ragtag superhero movie with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor and a hearty dose of nostalgia, but its sequel is something a little smoother. One might chalk it up to the Marvel Studios house style’s recent embrace of the stranger legacies of comics artists Steve Ditko…

Sylvester Stallone can’t get away from Escape Plan 3

Suggesting that the fourth Expendables movie he recently bailed on must have been a real triumph of suck, Sylvester Stallone has announced that he’ll be returning to his franchise duties on Escape Plan 3.

It’s time for a fond reappraisal of Sylvester Stallone’s 1996 action flop Daylight

Action got apocalyptic in the mid-’90s. Advances in special effects revived the disaster genre of the ’70s, resulting in the box office hit that was Armageddon and any number of big-budgeted imitators. Some of the latter were good (Deep Impact), but most were lame (Volcano, Dante’s Peak, The Core). And then there was…
