Joseph LoDuca’s Score For Pay The Ghost Digital Release On September 18th

24 August 2015 6:48 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Lakeshore Records will release the Pay The Ghost – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on September 18th. The album features the film’s original score by Joseph LoDuca (Spartacus, Ash Vs. The Evil Dead). “There are three aspects to my music for Pay The Ghost that made the experience memorable,” said LoDuca. “I am pleased with the result of my close collaboration with Uli Edel (director) on a horror/thriller score that relied primarily on electronic sound. Over several sessions together, creating dark atmospheres with a gnawing sense of tension was our primary objective.”

A supernatural thriller based on a short story by Tim Lebbon. Pay The Ghost kicks off on Halloween night, when a couple’s young son is mysteriously abducted. A year later, they begin to sense his presence in frightening ways. A string of terrifying clues draws them to search for the boy throughout New York, where they »

17 actors impersonating other actors: Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack Nicholson impression is crazy good

24 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

You might think you can do a decent Christopher Walken, but really, you can't touch the professionals. Here, from Kevin Spacey to Steve Coogan, are the very finest impersonators in the business (of other people in the business).

1. Kevin Spacey

Actors impersonated: Katharine Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, Marlon Brando, Christopher Walken

To know Kevin Spacey is to know his impersonations. Willing to bust out a Brando at the drop of a hat, the former Old Vic head honcho was more than willing to obey James Lipton's commands during his appearance on Inside The Actors Studio.

Ps - there are Kevin Spacey impressions, then there are Kevin Spacey impressions in front of the people he's impersonating. Ladies and gentlemen, Al Pacino and "Al Pacino".

2. Bradley Cooper

Actors impersonated: Robert De Niro, Owen Wilson, Christopher Walken, Christian Bale

Everyone can do a Christopher Walken - even if it's a terrible Christopher Walken »

The Marvel Age Of Movies Part I – Blade (1998)

24 August 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Marvel Age of Movies is an ongoing feature that will profile every film produced by Marvel Studios from 1998 to the present. What started as a production company became a Hollywood powerhouse in its own right, and this column will chart the course of that unprecedented success beginning with adaptations across a handful of studios to the creation of a large and expansive cinematic universe involving dozens of characters. Marvel changed comic book movies, and it changed Hollywood in the process. This is the story of the Marvel Age of Movies.

Blade wasn’t supposed to be the big comic book movie of 1998. A little over a year before, all eyes were on Superman Lives, the Tim Burton adaptation of the Man of Steel starring Nicolas Cage as Superman/Clark Kent. But then they closed up shop in the wake of overwhelming fan criticism.

Is 'Mad Max' director George Miller about to give us the most visionary Superman movie ever?

21 August 2015 5:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Attention: we are in the midst of a nerdgasm. In news that's sure to thrill fans of the Superman movie franchise (and superhero movies in general), "Mad Max: Fury Road" director George Miller may be taking the helm of the next "Man of Steel" sequel. That's at least according to Jon Schnepp, director of the forthcoming documentary "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?", which focuses on the ill-fated Nicolas Cage/Tim Burton Superman film that died in development hell back in the 1990s. How does Schnepp know this? He doesn't say, so let's treat this as a rumor until we get more details. As notes, Miller was previously attached to helm DC's first attempt at a "Justice League" movie several years ago, before "Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder took the helm. Watch the video below (h/t Popcorn Talk) for Schnepp's comments. »

'Man of Steel 2' Gets 'Mad Max' Director George Miller?

21 August 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While we've heard plenty of rumors that Ben Affleck is directing, co-writing and starring in an Untitled Batman Reboot trilogy, that will supposedly kick off before the end of this decade, we haven't heard anything about a second standalone Superman movie. That all changes today, though, in a big way. A new rumor has surfaced about Man of Steel 2. It looks like Warner Bros. has already decided on a director, and you're going to love the choice.

George Miller, who created the Mad Max franchise and returned to direct this past summer's well-received Mad Max: Fury Road is supposedly set to direct Man of Steel 2. The news broke on the latest episode of Popcorn Talk, and comes from a pretty reliable source. Director Jon Schnepp was promoting his documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? when he let it slip. He's had inside access to Warner Bros. »

Nicolas Cage Names His Favorite Performances, Bashes Modern Film Criticism

14 August 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've made my affections for Nicolas Cage no secret on this site. It's a love ironic and not. I truly believe the actor can command a strong performance when given a chance, even today despite the rantings of those who believe otherwise -- I'll point to Joe and the first Kick-Ass to back my case. Even when he's bad, though, his odd fixture usually remains alluring. The mannerisms, delivery and personality traits he gives to his characters are entirely his own, and only occasionally does that not work in his favor with regards to entertainment, like in last week's The Runner. His most insane performances, from The Wicker Man to Vampire's Kiss, are not always celebrated but they're sure-as-hell remembered, and that's the case for the actor as well. Talking to Time about his filmography while promoting his aforementioned new political drama, the kookier and/or more emotionally demanding roles »

Nicolas Cage Chooses His Favorite Movie Roles, Weighs In On State Of Film Criticism

14 August 2015 6:17 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Nicolas Cage's latest output has been scattered and somewhat low profile (you may not have noticed his last movie, the political drama "The Runner," opened earlier this month), the actor is nothing if not committed to his craft. "They’re all my children. Whether they worked or didn’t work, I grew by taking risks and dealing with critical backlash. I was Ok with it because I felt that I was still finding things in my instrument that made me remain fresh or excited," he recently told Time, reflecting on the roles he's taken in the past. But what are his favorites? Cage makes some pretty solid choices. "There’s a few of them, sure. I thought that Werner [Herzog] and I got up to something special in 'Bad Lieutenant.' Certainly Mike Figgis and I found something pretty emotionally naked in 'Leaving Las Vegas.' I was very happy with 'Vampire’s Kiss, »

Nicolas Cage names the four best movies of his career

Remember when Nicolas Cage movies were something to look forward to? Now, Cage's films feel more like a punchline rather than something worth spending any of your hard earned money on. His latest film, The Runner, is another in a long string of mediocre to bad movies that are conveniently available at your local Redbox or gas station.

Franchise Reboots: A Necessary Evil

11 August 2015 12:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the aftermath of this weeks disastrous Fantastic Four release, David Opie argues that reboots are still essential to modern day filmmaking…

Remake. Reimagining. Reboot. The Three dreaded R’s of Hollywood.

Every day, it seems that studios announce plans to launch yet another a new franchise reboot and every day, the internet responds with a collective groan louder than the sound of Fantastic Four crashing and burning at the box office.

“How dare they mess with a classic!?”

“Is there no originality left in Hollywood!”

“Too Soon!”

In the harshest backhanded compliment ever given, critics are describing the new Fantastic Four movie as the best so far, yet the reviews are overwhelmingly negative, seemingly confirming the fears that fans held about the project ever since it was first announced. Fantastic Four isn’t the only reboot suffering from a backlash though. »

Nicolas Cage picks his favourite four roles

10 August 2015 11:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There's no Con Air on the list, as Nicolas Cage cites his favourites of his film roles to date...

The ever-industrious Nicolas Cage has yet another film heading our way, with political drama The Runner his latest production. As part of the publicity work for the film, he chatted to Time magazine about the roles across his career that are his favourites. And it'd be fair to say he covered a mix of his work.

"I though that Werner [Herzog] and I got up to something special in Bad Lieutenant. Certainly, Mike Figgis and I found something pretty emotionally naked in Leaving Las Vegas", he said, the latter being his Oscar-winning role.

The other two roles he cited?

"I was very happy with Vampire’s Kiss, which in my opinion was almost like an independent laboratory to start realising some of my more expressionistic dreams with film performance. Then using what »

Read More: Rlj Entertainment Acquires Nicolas Cage Thriller 'Pay the Ghost' Well Go USA Entertainment has acquired the North American rights to the apocalyptic Western-thriller "The Timber," starring Josh Peck ("Danny Collins," The Wackness") and James Ransone ("Sinister," "Inside Man"). The movie will debut on DVD and Digital HD on October 6. The film's official synopsis reads as follows: "1898. Alaskan frontier. Two brothers, balanced on the knife's edge between foreclosure and salvation, head deep into the wilderness in an attempt to execute a warrant in hopes of saving their home. Torn from their family, they face harsh elements, crazed men, and death at every corner in pursuit of the outlaw, a twisted man who has turned the Yukon Territory into his own personal hell. 'The Timber' captures the mania, starvation, swindles, hardships, and dangers that were part of the late 19th century’s historic rush for gold. This is a story. »
