Eugenio Derbez Developing ‘The Valet’ Remake Under New Pantelion Deal

5 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mexican star Eugenio Derbez is developing a remake of the French film “The Valet” as the first project under his new first-look deal with Pantelion Films.

The exclusive deal with Derbez underscores the high stakes of reaching the coveted Hispanic moviegoing audience — a fast-growing demographic at the box office.

Derbez starred in and directed Pantelion’s hit “Instructions Not Included,” the highest-grossing Spanish-language film ever released in the U.S. at $44 million. The film grossed another $55 million outside the U.S.

“Pantelion and Televisa can reach my core fan base better than anyone and, with the distribution expertise and brand recognition of Lionsgate, I know we can build on the crossover audience that we began to reach with ‘Instructions,'” Derbez said.

Derbez also starred in 2007’s “Under the Same Moon,” which took in about half of its $23 million worldwide in the U.S.

What Did You Watch This Weekend?

1 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Weekend Watch is an open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid) and discover queue-filling goodies from other Fsr readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling with the movies/TV my eyeballs took in this weekend. Prom Night is a Canadian slasher film from 1980 that tried to capitalize on the “theme” craze of films like Halloween, Friday the 13th and Mad Magazine’s sadly never produced Arbor Day, but not even the presence of Jamie Lee Curtis can make it all that worthwhile. The pacing is mostly to blame as it takes far too long for the killings to start — something that would be forgivable if the earlier time was spent giving depth to the characters — and once they do even the deaths are stretched out to ridiculous lengths.

Michael Myers Returns for Halloween Horror Nights Haunted House

28 August 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Everyone is entitled to one good scare...and beginning September 19, Universal Orlando will give guests more than one reason to scream as it brings to life John Carpenter's classic horror film Halloween.

Based on the classic 1978 slasher film, the all-new haunted house follows the story of Michael Myers, a deranged boy from Haddonfield, Il. It is Halloween night and no one is safe as the psychotic killer embarks on a murderous rampage. With his iconic mask to hide his identity, Michael sets out for new blood and will stop at nothing as he stalks his victims. Every scene tells the tale of a different kill and if you're not careful, you could be next.

Halloween is one of the most successful horror franchises of all time and has grossed a collected $366 million worldwide. Since the original Halloween film, nine additional Halloween sequels have been created. This year, the franchise »

‘Halloween Complete Collection’ Is Shaping Up to Be a Horror Fan’s Wet Dream

11 August 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The image above is taken from the upcoming Halloween Complete Collection — specifically from the newly restored “Producer’s Cut” of Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers — and it’s just one of the reason’s why horror fans should be ridiculously excited for this release. Until now the only way to see this version of the film which includes 43 minutes of alternate footage and a different ending was via bootleg DVDs and VHS tapes. The difference in picture clarity is astounding and can be glimpsed further down the page. The entire Halloween film series is captured in this box-set including all eight original films, TV edits of the first two films, the alternate cut of the sixth film and both of Rob Zombie’s reboots. Some of the films have seen HD transfers already from Anchor Bay and Scream Factory, but now the two labels are joining forces to give that same treatment to each entry in »

Leading the market since 1983, this comedy institution stars Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd as a fast-talking lowlife and a squeaky-clean stockbroker who have their lives completely switched around by the meanest, greediest brothers on Wall Street (Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy) - all for a one-dollar bet. From the leads to the tiniest bit part, everyone contributes to make this one of the most quotable laugh riots of all time. Jamie Lee Curtis certainly makes the most of her assets as a kind-hearted hooker, while Hollywood veterans Ameche and Bellamy are priceless as the mean, old money-grubbers. »

Genre Gut Punches: Jamie Lloyd Never Stood A Chance

1 August 2014 2:11 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

There is something about the Halloween franchise that just ignites an overwhelming mixture of feelings for me. I hold the original John Carpenter classic very close to my heart, and will go to my grave declaring it to be the best film of all time. With the amount of love and admiration that I have for the first film though, I,  like all fans, tend to get a bit nit-picky with the later sequels.  My previous Genre Gut Punches article dealt with the death of my favorite heroine of all time, Laurie Strode, and well,..what better way to follow that one up, than with what is the second most upsetting death in the series, the casual throwing aside of Laurie’s daughter, Jamie Lloyd.

While Jamie’s death is definitely worthy of being labelled as one of the genre’s biggest gut punches, the more I kept throwing the »
