Patriotic 'Act Of Valor' Earns A Sequel

Image
The movie "Act of Valor," about our country’s brave Navy Seals, did so well at the box office in 2012 that Relativity and The Bandito Brothers are getting ready to do it again. Plans are in the works to film "Act of Valor 2," this time with the focus on elite SWAT officers. For this second film, Scott Wiper ("A Better Way to Die," "The Condemned") will direct. What was it about the first "Act of Valor" that audiences identified with, helping the film do a respectable $70,012,847 in the U.S. alone and $12,484,188 internationally?

Real Acts of Courage
The plot for the film "Act of Valor" was fictitious, and there was some poetic license taken with a few scenes in the film, but the U.S. Navy Seals are real life heroes. The Seals were involved in the covert operation of taking out Osama Bin Laden, and they have also been involved in other classified missions in Iraq and Mogadishu.

'Road House' Remake On The Way

Image
For those of you who were excited about (or disappointed by) the news of a sequel to It's a Wonderful Life then go ahead and get those thoughts out of your head now.  The film was thought to be in public domain, but as it turns out, Paramount still owns any and all rights to the film so any sequel would have to go through them -- which they have absolutely no interest in.

So, yeah...not happening.

Whew.
