Hi all! As you’ve probably noticed due to the lack of recent updates, I am no longer able to run this website and I cannot afford to host the domain and all the content anymore. If anyone is interested in adopting this site, please let me know ASAP as it will be closing before October is over. Please email cordys.fansites[@]gmail.com (removing the brackets) if interested! I have made backups of everything, so in the case no one adopts the site, I hope to re-open at a later time when I can afford to and when I have the passion for updating back 🙂
Bruce Willis may be 66 years old, but the star of the new sci-fi action movie Cosmic Sin is still doing, well, the Bruce Willis thing. His latest release, now streaming on Netflix, finds him once again — what else? Strapping on armor of some kind, shooting up a lot of bad guys, and saving humanity from some existential threat. When it works, it really works (a la something like The Fifth Element). We’ll get into more detail about his newest title below, and whether or not his formula works here or not. But, for now, it’s worth pointing out: As of the time of this writing, it’s cracked the Netflix daily Top 10. With Cosmic Sin currently sitting at #8, as I type these words.
Cosmic Sin — now streaming on Netflix
The basics: Directed by Edward Drake, Cosmic Sin stars Willis and Frank Grillo in what wants to be a sci-fi epic, set in the year 2524. Willis plays a retired general, and the time period is four centuries after humanity started colonizing the outer planets.
Willis’ character, General James Ford, is tracked down to secure his help after hostile aliens on a remote planet start attacking soldiers. It all escalates from there into a potential interstellar war.
“We didn’t know whether to burn it, or put it in a museum,” Grillo’s character says at one point in the trailer, about … something, I guess. “I’m sure they said the same thing about me,” Willis’ hero general growls in response.
Should you stream it?
If you ask the opinion of many of the reviewers (and viewers) who’s already watched the movie, it sounds like they’d probably say Cosmic Sin is a great title here. With an emphasis on “sin.” As in, it was a sin against humanity that this movie got made at all.
There’s certainly a ton of entertaining and buzzy film content to watch on Netflix right now. Heck, just check out some of the other titles on the current Top 10 list. You’ve got Netflix originals like Gunpowder Milkshake, for example, which is a thriller about female assassins. As well as the Fear Street trilogy, which is a set of horror movies based on the book series by R.L. Stine. All three of those shot to the top of the Netflix Top 10 list, and viewers are still raving about them online.
And then we come to Cosmic Sin. Which, yes, made it onto Netflix’s Top 10 list. But which one Twitter user lambasted as so awful that somebody needs to check on Willis’ agent (presumably, for recommending this gig to the star).
Hey guys! I’ve updated the gallery with screen captures from the movie Trauma Center along with a few HQ movie stills and promotional photos. Hope you enjoy!
Alone and trapped in a locked-down hospital, an injured young woman must escape a pair of vicious killers who are after the only piece of evidence that can implicate them in a grisly murder, the bullet in her leg.
I am so sorry for being M.I.A. FOREVER but I just wanted to stop by and let you all know that updates will be coming very soon!!!
Saban Films has acquired North American rights to Bruce Willis-starring sci-fi-action project “Cosmic Sin.” One of the hottest projects being pitched at the Berlin Film Festival’s European Film Market, the picture is written and directed by Corey Large and Edward Drake (“Breach”) with Large also producing.
“Cosmic Sin” follows a group of warriors and scientists who must fight to protect and save their race when a hostile alien species with the power to infect and take over human hosts sets its sights on a futuristic human society.
“Saban Films has been partnering on films at earlier stages and this is a project we knew we wanted to be involved with from the beginning,” said Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley, who negotiated the deal, with Large on behalf of the filmmakers.
The film is currently in pre-production, with The Exchange handling international rights in other territories. Stephen Eads is executive producing.
Willis also stars in upcoming “Breach,” another sci-fi action project, featuring an alien force intent on taking control of a space ship. “Breach” is in post-production and was represented by Film Mode Entertainment.
Saban has handled theatrical films such as Hilary Swank-starring “The Homesman,” to two of the biggest Fathom events Rob Zombie’s “3 From Hell” last year and Kevin Smith’s “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.” Saban’s upcoming slate includes: Jason Lei Howden’s “Guns Akimbo,” starring Daniel Radcliffe; Ant Timpson’s “Come to Daddy,” starring Elijah Wood, and “Vivarium,” starring Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg.
Edward Norton’s adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s novel Motherless Brooklyn will open the 55th edition of the Chicago International Film Festival.
Motherless Brooklyn centers on Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton), a lonely private detective living with Tourette Syndrome, who ventures to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). Armed only with a few clues and the engine of his obsessive mind, Lionel unravels closely guarded secrets that hold the fate of New York in the balance. In a mystery that carries him from gin-soaked jazz clubs in Harlem to the hard-edged slums of Brooklyn and, finally, into the gilded halls of New York’s power brokers, Lionel contends with thugs, corruption and the most dangerous man in the city to honor his friend and save the woman who might be his own salvation.
The film’s ensemble cast includes Bruce Willis, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Bobby Cannavale, Cherry Jones, Michael Kenneth Williams, Leslie Mann, Ethan Suplee, Dallas Roberts, Josh Pais, Robert Ray Wisdom, Fisher Stevens, with Alec Baldwin and Willem Dafoe.
“We’re thrilled to be opening with Edward Norton’s stunning and accomplished new film,” said the festival’s artistic director Mimi Plauché. “Edward is already celebrated for his acting talent, but with his second feature as a director he’s proven himself to be a visionary filmmaker with a highly entertaining movie full of terrific performances that feels both timeless and utterly timely.”
The opening night celebration, sponsored by Bloomberg Philanthropies and the John and Jacolyn Bucksbaum Family Foundation, will be held at the AMC River East 21 at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 16, 2019. An after-party at Union Station Burlington Room will follow, with additional support provided by Aberlour, Chloe Wine Collection, Goose Island, and Forza Meats.
Presented by Cinema/Chicago, the 55th Chicago International Film Festival will take place Oct. 16-27 at the AMC River East.

It solidified a long relationship that Willis has had with Emmett/Furla/Oasis. He has made 14 films with them, with 10 Minutes Gone in post-production and past efforts that include the Richard Donner-directed 16 Blocks and the Stephen Frears-helmed Lay the Favorite.
The first in the new three-pic pact will be Trauma Center, written by Paul da Silva. It will begin shooting in February in Miami. Additional casting is underway on the film. Emmett, Furla and Lydia Hull will produce Trauma Center, while Ted Farnsworth, Tim Sullivan and Alex Eckert will executive produce.
Speaking on the relationship between the company and Willis, Emmett said: “We consider Bruce a part of the MoviePass family at this point. Bruce is not only one of the biggest worldwide movie stars but is also a force to be reckoned with, and we look forward to the future with him.”
Said Willis, “After 15 years, I look forward to continuing to work with Randall and George in the coming year.”
EFO is in post-production on Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman along with Willis’ 10 Minutes Gone. The Michael Polish-helmed WWII drama Axis Sally starring Al Pacino is currently in pre-production.
