Road To Paloma
With roles in HBO's hit "Game Of Thrones," Sundance Channel's acclaimed "The Red Road," having been chosen to play "Conan The Barbarian," and an upcoming expected part in the highly anticipated "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice," there have been no shortage of opportunities for Jason Momoa. But the actor clearly has aspirations to tell his own stories, and experience moviemaking from behind the camera as well. He does just that with "Road To Paloma," co-writing, directing and starring in the film. And today, we have an extensive look at the moody picture he's put together.

As was revealed a few days ago, Warner Bros have big plans for their DC Comics superhero films. Last year's "Man Of Steel" kicked off their current iteration of the DC-verse, but it's 2016's "Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice" that will really kick off the studio's answer to Marvel's wildly successful pictures. The movie looks to be the first in a run of as many as three movies a year, and aside from Henry Cavill's Superman, will also introduce Ben Affleck's Batman, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, and Cyborg, played by Ray Fisher.

Road To Paloma
Whenever an actor goes behind the camera, the results can be dicey. But at the same time—as we highlighted in our feature 10 Strong Directorial Debuts From Actors-Turned-Directors—sometimes that venture behind the camera can result in something better than expected. And while we had our doubts about Jason Momoa doing his thing as a director for "Road To Paloma," it seems to be delivering exactly what it set out.

Joe Cornish—Edgar Wright's frequent screenwriting partner—made a splash a few years ago with his feature-length directorial debut “Attack The Block” and since then he’s been rumored to take on films like the next “Star Trek” installment, but it seems the British director has thought it best to stick with original films.

The Red Road
While HBO and AMC tend to get all the Golden Age Of TV glory, it might be time to start including Sundance Channel in the mix. Last year's "Top Of The Lake" was one of the best things we saw on either the big or small screen, and if the first teaser for "The Red Road" is anything to go by, it's going to be another fascinating, layered drama. And hell, we'll be watching simply because James Gray directed the first episode of the six episode long season.

The most entertaining aspect of “Batman vs. Superman,” thus far, has been the fan reaction. The announcement of the project itself caused quite a stir, but when it was revealed Ben Affleck would play Batman, all hell broke loose… on the internet. Things seemed to have calmed down since, though the announcement that Wonder Woman would also be appearing in the film was also quite a surprise. Regardless, Warner Brothers and DC Comics remain unfettered, as they have just announced that Jason Momoa (“Conan the Barbarian”) is currently in negotiations to join the cast as well.

It's a bit of a weird day of unlikely circles overlapping. David Fincher and Tyler Perry might collide for "Gone Girl," and now James Gray and Jason Momoa will be working together. Yes, really. The "Two Lovers" and "The Immigrant" filmmaker is the latest director to head to the world of television and it's for a project that certainly sounds like it has potential.

There was a moment, however fleeting, when Jason Momoa was supposed to be the next big thing. But then "Conan The Barbarian" came out, and it was awful and tanked, and the only thing the actor has done since was Sylvester Stallone's "Bullet To The Head," which met a similar fate. But could a Marvel movie be in the cards?

Review: Walter Hill's Sylvester Stallone-Starrer 'Bullet To The Head' Is A Blast From The Past

About as unreconstructed as it's possible to get, Walter Hill's first feature in 10 years, "Bullet to the Head," finds the veteran action director utterly mired in the tropes of the '80s R-rated action film. And we enjoyed the hell out of it. With nothing but the Himalayan crags of Sylvester Stallone's face to suggest the last 30 years of filmmaking ever happened, Hill has -- crafted seems the wrong word -- rammed together an action movie in which the plot is laughable, the quips are quippy and the action nasty -- no graceful, balletic, parkour bullshit here, just guns, fists, explosives and, gloriously, axes. This is gristly, muscly action, Stallone's aging sinews standing up remarkably well to the task of dispatching opponents fleshily against concrete, steel and marble surfaces when he's not simply shooting them. There is absolutely nothing defensible about the movie's leering treatment of women, or the casual racism played frequently for laughs, or even the utter nihilism of its hero, but it's so patently unrepentant, and so oddly even-handed in having all of its characters seem mindbendingingly dumb, that it kind of gets a pass.

Oh yeah, this movie. We sorta forgot "Bullet To The Head" was even coming, and the marketing campaign seems to be...quiet...perhaps befitting of an early winter release. But with a week to go before it comes out, the push to get people to fork over their hard-earned cash is becoming more prominent.
