We all know that anything that requires you to travel to a distant region of space, pose as a filmmaker to find a new wife, relocate to a town called Castle Rock, or poke your nose into a parallel universe is tantamount to suicide. But what professions put you directly in the firing line? Are akin to having a huge red bulls-eye on your back? For the folks on this list, the term “occupational hazard” has far more ominous connotations.
We present seven of the most dangerous horror movie professions you can have (with some minor spoilers)...
Scientist – The Fly (1986)
A hallmark of science-gone-awry in the horror genre is that, for the scientist at the center of the story, it will inevitably end in blood, tears, and for Jeff Goldblum in David Cronenberg’s 1986 reimagining of Kurt Neumann’s 1958 original The Fly, monstrous transmutation and decapitation at the business end »

The Best Actor prize went to James McAvoy for Filth, while Le Week-End's Lindsay Duncan took home the Best Actress award. Imogen Poots collected the Supporting Actress gong for The Look of Love and Ben Mendelsohn won Best Supporting Actor for Starred Up.
Special awards on the night were handed to Julie Walters, who took the Richard Harris Award for outstanding contribution to British film, and Paul Greengrass, recipient of the Variety Award for helping to shine the world spotlight on the UK.
The Bifa winners in full are as follows:
Best British Independent Film
Metro Manila - »
It’s a very important night for British film. Celebrating, in a way the BAFTAs can’t, the vital new talents emerging in this country. The British Independent Film Awards is one of our favourite nights of the year, as much a routemap for the people to watch over the next year as it is a celebration of them.
The sheer variety of films nominated is evidence of the potent creative landscape of Britain. From the crowd pleasing and inspirational journey of Steve Coogan and Judi Dench in Philomena, through the haunted and surreal discovery of Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin, to the barren urban clash of Clio Barnard’s The Selfish Giant this country has an independent film industry to be proud of.
There was a great swell of support for one film in particular but the awards point to many successes here. It’s great to see »

In ratings news, The Sound Of Music Live blew away the competition. It was NBC’s largest non-sports Thursday audience since the series finale of Frasier in May 2004, and its best non-sports Thursday demo number since the April 2009 ER finale. Meanwhile, Glee had its lowest ratings ever. »
Not since Jeff Goldblum brought down an entire mothership with an Apple Powerbook, have I witnessed such an amazing usage of technology. Actually, what Selina Gomez manages to do with an iPad could well be some of the greatest cyber shenanigans ever recorded on film. From hacking servers and looping hidden camera video feeds with nothing but a few finger swipes it really is mind blowing……of course that is, if you are an idiot. Starring the aforementioned, tech talented Selina Gomez and Ethan Hawke, Getaway follows the story of a former race car driver who has to jump through some driving hoops after his wife is kidnapped by a stereo typical bad guy (Jon Voight). With cameras all over the absolutely gorgeous Shelby GT500 Super Snake, and a ticking clock, the pressure is on for our heroes to survive, rescue the wife, rescue Selena Gomez and basically waste 90 minutes of your life. »

Written by Joan Tewkesbury
Directed by Robert Altman
At the Cannes preview screening of Apocalypse Now in 1979, Francis Ford Coppola infamously declared, “Apocalypse Now is not about Vietnam; it is Vietnam.” Watching Robert Altman’s 1975 opus Nashville, perhaps the best film in a career full of exceptional work, one gets the feeling that it isn’t really about America; it is America. With its eclectic cast of individuals from all walks of life (typical for Altman), its sprawling narrative of disjointed personal and professional connections (ditto), and its setting of a distinctly American city around the time of our nation’s bicentennial, Nashville comes across as more than a fictional depiction of characters embodying certain nationalistic traits; it truly feels like the film is America in a nutshell. In the words of Keith Carradine, it’s an “extraordinary accomplishment.”
Now, with The Criterion Collection release of the film »

I've wanted to see the movie The Horrible Sexy Vampire (1970) ever since I learned there was a film called The Horrible Sexy Vampire. If I'm honest, I've probably wanted (subconsciously) to see The Horrible Sexy Vampire even before I knew there was a film called The Horrible Sexy Vampire. I suppose I must like bad films. I do think films should aspire to be good. But then, isn't that a form of the intentional fallacy? We can't know if a film really aspired to be good or not, and so if a film isn't good, we can't know if it's failed at what was intended, or succeeded at something else.
Anyhow, as long as I've been alive, and probably longer (although that makes no sense since I am three years older than The Horrible Sexy Vampire) I've wanted to see The Horrible Sexy Vampire. And now here I am, seeing it. »

To many people, nursing homes are no laughing matter, but a new Americanization of a British show is aiming to mine humor from that environment.
Premiering Sunday, Nov. 24, HBO's "Getting On" casts three-time "Roseanne" Emmy winner Laurie Metcalf as the supervisor of an extended-care facility in Long Beach, Calif. She thinks the assignment is only temporary, but she finds out differently ... meaning she'll have to find ways to deal with the often challenging bureaucracy, encompassing a by-the-book nurse (Alex Borstein, the voice of Lois Griffin on Fox's "Family Guy").
"We're all going to deal with this at some point," Metcalf reasons to Zap2it of the subject matter "Getting On" tackles. "It's a dramedy, I guess you'd call it, so there is humor ... but this is a tough subject. I was so impressed with the BBC version, within the first five minutes, I knew this was something I wanted to do. »
Hanif Kureishi wrote the screenplay to the story about a couple who return to the site of their honeymoon in Paris to recapture their youth.

Director: Philip Kaufman
Running Time: 115 minutes
Synopsis: In San Francisco, a group of people discover the human race is being replaced one by one, with clones.
Philip Kaufman’s acclaimed adaptation of Don Siegel’s 1956 sci-fi classic Invasion Of The Body Snatchers remains one the earliest and beloved remakes in the genre, while remaining faithful with author Jack Finney’s source novel ‘The Body Snatchers’. Director Kaufman’s paranoia-fuelled update improves on the simple storyline of a population being replaced by emotionless alien duplicates by shifting the extraterrestrial terror to one of the United States’ most iconic cities. San Francisco adds a sometimes epic scope to proceedings, and also suggests this could very well be a sequel as these pod-like otherworldly arrivals, with the ability to eerily clone human beings, have expanded beyond that initial and unlucky small town. »

Judi Dench, Scarlett Johansson: 2013 British Independent Film Awards nominations (photo: Judi Dench in ‘Philomena’) Since the likes of Judi Dench, Scarlett Johansson, James McAvoy, and Tom Hardy are in the running for the 2013 British Independent Film Awards, expect at least a little overlapping between the determinedly indie-oriented BIFAs and other awards season nominees and/or winners elsewhere. (See also: “Judi Dench Sole Bifa Nominee Surely to Get BAFTA, Oscar Nominations.”) Judi Dench and Scarlett Johansson are competing in the Best Actress category; Dench for Stephen Frears’ Philomena, Johansson for Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin. Tom Hardy and James McAvoy are in the running for the Best Actor British Independent Film Award; Hardy for Steven Knight’s Locke, McAvoy for Jon S. Baird’s Filth. The top Bifa 2013 movie, however, is David Mackenzie’s Starred Up, with a total of eight nominations including Best British Independent Film, Best Director, »

The release date of the movie has been pushed back almost a year. The alien invasion sequel was supposed to come out on July 3rd, 2015, but it's now set to hit the big screen on July 1st, 2016.
If they don't land Smith they have a plan B in place as they have two scripts for the film to shoot from, one that includes Smith's character and one that doesn't.
There's still no information on the official plot of the film, but it's safe to assume that the aliens will be back to attack earth. Chronicle star Michael B. Jordan has been in talks to star in the film and will most likely join Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum. »

"Independence Day 2" is coming a little later than expected. Originally set to hit theaters on July 3, 2015, the Roland Emmerich sequel has been pushed back to July 1, 2016. Though no plot specifics for the follow-up have been revealed at this time, Emmerich recently confirmed that two scripts exist for the film - one of which features Will Smith's Captain Steven Hiller and another that doesn't (it's unknown whether the actor will be reprising his role from the original). Other thesps rumored for the sequel include original stars Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum (actually confirmed by Emmerich in a »

The sequel to Independence Day, titled ID Forever Part I, has now been pushed back a year to July 1st, 2016, according to Entertainment Weekly. The new release date falls just two days shy of the original movie's 20th anniversary.
20 Movies You Can't Even Believe Are 20 Years Old
The movie will take place, fittingly, two decades after the conclusion of the first one, when alien reinforcements show up in response to a distress call sent out before Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum finished defeating the original invaders. The new story will »
20th Century Fox have been shifting the release dates around for a number of their big upcoming productions recently. They have moved Matthew Vaughn’s The Secret Service from 11th November 2014 to 6th March 2015, Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot from 6th March 2015 to 19th June 2015 and finally Michael Fassbender’s Assassins Creed from 19th June 2015 to 7th August 2015. Now comes word that the science fiction sequel Independence Day 2 has also been moved back.
The film was originally set for 3rd July 2015 but has been moved back to 1st July 2016, which seems fitting as it is almost exactly 20 years after the original box office smash hit came exploding into theaters. One of the reasons for the move could be the involvement of a certain Will Smith, who starred in the original film directed by Roland Emmerich. Although it is seeming more and more unlikely that the star will be involved »

"Independence Day 2" will bring back Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, and director Roland Emmerich, and has been scheduled to hit theaters on July 3rd, 2015. But now comes word that the sci-fi sequel has been delayed by an entire year. The new release date is July 1st, 2016. A reason for such a big shift has not been disclosed, but many believe that it has to do with waiting for Will Smith, who initially turned down the opportunity to reprise his role of Captain Hiller. Emmerich was planning to make "Independence Day 2" without Smith, but then revealed that the actor may change his mind. As a result, two scripts were written, one with Smith's character and one without. Stay tuned. »
Director Roland Emmerich ('2012', 'The Day After Tomorrow') is set to continue his extremely disturbing interest in end of world or civilisation based filmmaking with his long-awaited sequel to the 1996 alien invasion blockbuster 'Independence Day'. During this past year both Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin have been hinting at a sequel and even a third installment. 'Independence Day 2' had even scored a 2015 release date, however, this has now changed as 20th Century Fox have pushed the release back all the way to 1 July 2016. Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are both reportedly returning for the follow-up although it's unlikely Will Smith will return as Captain Steven Hiller. The news comes as part of a date shift for a number of upcoming Fox projects including the 'Fantastic Four' reboot. »
