'Pay the Ghost' Trailer: Do Not Kidnap Nicolas Cage's Kid

9 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

To many, Nicolas Cage has basically become a living, breathing meme. It's not hard to see why, either. He's got a few recent bad movies under his belt and a constant stream of weird haircuts to go with them, so any given screenshot of him can have some snarky text applied to it and cover a thousand different scenarios. But even if he does have weird hair pieces, and even if the movies he's in are duds, Nicolas Cage still manages to throw his weight into a role in ways that few other actors ever do. It's a bit of a blessing, then, that Cage's next movie actually looks more than a little decent. It's called Pay the Ghost, and it's about a man whose investigation into the abduction of his son leads him down some pretty wild avenues. There's actually...

9 Wes Craven Movies You Must See

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday was a tragic day for horror fans around the world, as we reported the unfortunate news of Wes Craven passing at the age of 76 in his Los Angeles home. Wes Craven left an indelible mark on the horror movie genre almost immediately with his first feature film, 1972's The Last House on the Left, and his influence will be felt for years to come, in the filmmakers that follow and carry on his legacy. As we continue to mourn the loss of this legend, we're revisiting his best work with nine of his best films.

Wesley Earl Craven was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to Caroline (Miller) and Paul Eugene Craven, raised by a strict baptist family, although his father died when he was just five years old. He earned his undergraduate degree in English and Psychology from Wheaton University in Illinois, and earned his Masters in Philosophy and Writing from Johns Hopkins University. »

Spooky Trailer For Pay The Ghost Has Nicolas Cage Play A Desperate Father

14 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If there was ever an actor whose career could be aligned with the old Halloween tradition of trick or treat, it would be Nicolas Cage. From Oscar-winning highs to confounding lows, it’s fair to say that the star has served up a fair share of each across his sprawling résumé, and he’ll be hoping to serve up a spooky treat this fall season with Uli Edel’s Pay the Ghost.

Having directed Houdini, Oz and Homicide: Life On The Streets – not to mention a feature film in The Baader Meinhof Complex – Pay the Ghost is somewhat of a departure for Edel, which sees Cage’s Mike Cole scramble across the four corners of NYC in an attempt to find his missing son. You see, upon attending their local festive parade, the young boy is caught up in the atmosphere, capturing the hustle and bustle on his camera, »

Terribly Good: Nicolas Cage in Pay The Ghost [Trailer]

15 hours ago | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Ah Nicolas Cage. By this point it's fairly common knowledge that the actor has a spending problem that's put him seriously in the red so that along with the great work he's been doing over the last few years, there have also been some not-so-great movies. A lot of them. Pay the Ghost appears to be (one of) the latest.

Based on a novel from Tim Lebbon, Pay the Ghost stars Cage as a man who loses his son at the country fair on what appears to be Halloween night. As it turns out, there might be a supernatural angle to the abduction and now Cage and his wife-on-film, played here by former "The Walking Dead" star Sarah Wayne Callies, are not only dealing with the loss of their child but a supernatural entity that is causing them all sorts of additional heartache.

Judging by the trailer, it looks like some supernatural elements are in play here. The film also stars Sarah Wayne Callies (“The Walking Dead”) and it is scored by Evil Dead composer, Joseph LoDuca.

One year after his young son disappeared during a Halloween carnival, Mike Cole (Cage) is haunted by eerie images and terrifying messages he can’t explain. Together with his estranged wife (Sarah Wayne Callies, The Walking Dead), he will stop at nothing to unravel the mystery and find their son—and, in doing so, he unearths a legend that refuses to remain buried in the past.

Pay The Ghost opens theatrically and VOD on September 25.

Watch: New Trailer For Halloween Thriller 'Pay The Ghost' Starring Nicolas Cage

20 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This Halloween, there's going to be an extra "treat" waiting for you: another random Nicolas Cage movie, "Pay The Ghost." This one does have some possibility of not just being another movie that will live in the furthest corners of DVD and VOD hell. Read More: The Films Of Nicolas Cage: A Retrospective The picture is directed by Uli Edel, the man behind "The Baader Meinhof Complex," "Last Exit To Brooklyn," plus episodes of "Houdini," "Oz," and "Homicide: Life On The Streets." The story, however, by Dan Kay about a conspiracy of missing children on Halloween seems silly. Here's the official synopsis:  Oscar® winner Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas) stars in this intense and chilling thriller about one man’s desperate search for his missing child. One year after his young son disappeared during a Halloween carnival, Mike Cole (Cage) is haunted by eerie images and terrifying messages he can’t explain. »

24 August 2015 6:48 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com 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.

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.

It was more or less the »

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 Comicbook.com 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. »
