New images were released today for the upcoming film Boyhood, directed by Richard Linklater. Considering that Linklater is a director known for highly experimental films, such as the rotoscoped philosophical conversation drama Waking Life, it is really saying something that Boyhood might be the director’s most ambitious work yet.
The film stars newcomer Ellar Coltrane as an American boy, following his growth and maturation from age six through the end of his high school career. What is remarkable about the project, however, is that the young boy will be growing in real time, as Linklater shot the movie a small piece at a time each year for 12 consecutive years. In case you needed another reason to get excited about the project, Coltrane will have a terrific pair of supporting actors in Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette, who play the boy’s divorced parents. Hawke was one of the stars »

We first reported on the sequel last March, when Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill came aboard to write the script. No cast members have been announced at this time, and it isn't known when production will begin.
The original Sinister starred Ethan Hawke as a true crime writer who moves into a house where a vicious murder took place. He discovers a box of home movies from the previous family, which indicate that a nefarious supernatural presence is with him and his family at home. »
We knew that a sequel to Sinister has been in development, but we’ve been waiting to hear who would replace Scott Derrickson as director. An announcement has just been made and fans of 2012′s Citadel should be very happy.
As previously reported, Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill returned to co-write the story. Scott Derrickson took to Twitter today to announce that Citadel director Ciaran Foy will sit in the director’s chair for Sinister 2, with Derrickson remaining involved as a producer with Jason Blum.
There’s no release date or plot details at this time, but we’ll keep Daily Dead readers posted on any developments. For those that didn’t see the original movie, it starred Ethan Hawke as a crime novelist who makes a horrifying discovery in his new home:

A director has been chosen for the horror sequel Sinister 2. Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) co-wrote and directed the first film, which revolved around a true crime writer (Ethan Hawke) who moves his family into the home where a family was previously murdered, only to stumble across Super 8 footage depicting the murders of said family and numerous others. Though Derrickson returned to co-write the sequel with Sinister co-writer C. Robert Cargill, he opted to step back and let another filmmaker take the helm, and he announced on Twitter this evening that Citadel director Ciaran Foy will be taking the reigns of Sinister 2. Hit the jump for more. Though Derrickson will not be directing Sinister 2, he added that he will remain onboard as a producer of the sequel alongside Jason Blum, who also produced the first film through his lucrative low-budget-high-profit model via Blumhouse Productions (the studio behind Paranormal Activity, »

Elliot is playing a deadly game in 13 Sins.
Based on the Thai thriller 13: Game of Death, the Daniel Stamm-directed remake finds upstanding salesman Elliot <Mark Webber> deeply in debt, planning a wedding and his fiancé Shelby <Rutina Wesley> expecting a baby. When he gets fired from his job, a cryptic phone call gives a desperate Elliot new hope: Simply perform 13 tasks for increasing amounts of cash. However, what starts off with killing a fly quickly escalates as each sinister challenge tests Elliot's morality and he discovers he can't finish the game until it's finished with him.
Webber recently spoke to FEARnet about Elliot's dark journey in 13 Sins, staying away from the source material, what made him queasy and his next horror project, Jessabelle.
How did you become attached to 13 Sins?

Following an impressive and acclaimed premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, director Richard Linklater is bringing his 11-year long project Boyhood to theaters this summer. And while we're still waiting for the first trailer to show up, some new photos form the coming-of-age epic have arrived, showing off young Ellar Coltrane as he grows up from a young boy to a teenager. The film follows Mason (Coltrane) from age six to eighteen as he deals with the trials and tribulations of divorced parents, girls, disappointing authority figures and more. But it's not a greatest hits collection of boyhood as much as a raw look at growing up. Besides seeing Coltrane grow, it's also cool to see Ethan Hawke age over the years. Look! Here are the new photos from Richard Linklater's Boyhood (via The Playlist): Filmed from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood covers 12 years in the life of a family. »

As far as experiments go, Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was a real roll of the dice. Would a drama shot for a few days each year, chronicling the real-time (but fictional) coming-of-age of a young boy, work when all the material is cut together? Well, the answer from the Sundance and Berlin film festivals was a resounding "yes," and new images from the epic film have arrived. Featuring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette, but led by newcomer Ellar Coltrane, the film follows a family, through the eyes of a young boy, who are dealing with divorce and the obligations and responsibilities that come with the territory. But sprawling over two hours, and spanning nearly a decade, the film takes viewers on a journey through the experiences and changes of the lead character, in a way that we haven't quite seen before. And indeed, our review called the film "a remarkable »

It may not be the ideal birthday celebration for some, but Emma Watson was happy. The English actress turned 24 today, and while most people would plan an elaborate event or some festive get-together with their pals, Watson spend her day working on her new film in Toronto.

The MTV Movie Awards are coming your way on Sunday. The nominations this year, particularly for Movie of the Year, were interesting. I don't know that the wins will be, though, because frankly it seems like another young adult adaptation is poised to dominate after we got a bit of a breather from that sort of thing last year. I have no idea what I'm doing here. Yeah, the public votes, but I imagine there's plenty of rigging going on, too. So against reason, I'll try to predict them anyway. Don't use them for your office pool or anything (if you happen to work in an office so chill as to have an MTV Movie Awards pool, that is). Just try to follow my logic below and feel free to tell me why I'm wrong in the comments section. Best Kiss Ashley Benson, James Franco & Vanessa Hudgens, "Spring Breakers" Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Scarlett Johansson, »

We’d heard back around Sundance that the title for Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” would likely change. Guess that’s not happening. “Boyhood” now has a poster and it’s, well…. not very different from the three scant photos we’ve seen. In fact, it’s the exact photo of the boy in question (Ellar Coltrane), just in poster size. Still, Linklater’s movie is worth celebrating. Shot over the course of 12 years with the same four actors Ethan Hawke, Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette and the filmmaker’s daughter, Lorelei Linklater, “Boyhood” is a terrific cinematic experience chronicling the life of a family over more than a decade. It’s a journey that’s both emotional and even transcendent as the family’s center, Mason (Coltrane), goes from childhood to adulthood over the course of almost three hours (our review here). "I bet the whole farm on that property of storytelling, »

Boyhood is my most anticipated movie of 2014 as well as a film I consider an early contender for a Best Picture nomination. It received positive reviews out of Sundance and now IFC will bring it to theaters on July 11 and I cannot wait. Today the studio premiered the first poster for the film and it doesn't really have much flair to it as they've chosen to go the minimalistic route, merely Photoshopping the above still from the film, but nevertheless, any reason to talk about this movie and share my excitement I'm going to take. The film stars Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater and was filmed over short periods from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood is a groundbreaking cinematic experience covering 12 years in the life of a family. At the center is Mason (Coltrane), who with his sister Samantha (Linklater), are taken on an emotional and transcendent journey through the years, »

A dreamy new poster has arrived for Richard Linklater's award-winning festival favorite "Boyhood." Shot over short periods from 2002 to 2013 with the same four actors -- Ethan Hawke, Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette and Lorelei Linklater -- the film spans the emotional journey of a family over the course of 12 years, and through the eyes of the young son Mason (Coltrane). Linklater will soon be feted at the San Francisco International Film Festival. IFC Films will open "Boyhood" stateside on July 11, ahead of the Oscar pack. Read our glowing review of the film here. Poster below. »
