'Leatherface' Poster Teases 'Texas Chainsaw' Origin

22 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The slasher flick is about to tread into untested territory with Leatherface. It's not unique for showing us a killer's origin story. Halloween and Friday the 13th both did that right out of the gate. What we've never seen are the teenage years for any of these monsters. Leatherface changes all that by delving into the mythos and early years of the killer at the heart of 1974's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Millennium Films has unleashed the scary first poster for Leatherface, and it promises a gritty, rain-soaked excursion into the mind of a real Psycho.

Leatherface isn't just an origin story for the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It's also a Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! type murder-mystery. A young nurse is kidnapped by four violent teens who escape from a mental hospital and take her on a road trip from hell. Pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge, »

Marvel's 'Luke Cage' Casts Cottonmouth and Misty Knight

3 September 2015 4:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel announced today that Luke Cage has found its Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes with the casting of Mahershala Ali (House of Cards, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2). In related news, Deadline reports that Simone Missick has signed on to play a character named "Missy," who is believed to actually be the Marvel character Misty Knight. The series will premiere in 2016 everywhere that Netflix is available.

Stokes, a Harlem nightclub owner, will become an unexpected foe in Luke Cage's life when Stokes' criminal activities threaten Luke's world. This news confirms a rumor that surfaced last month, which claimed Cottonmouth Stokes would be introduced in the series. In the comic books, Cottonmouth was a drug dealer who crossed paths with Luke Cage. There is also speculation that Cottonmouth could connect Luke Cage to Iron Fist, since one of the comic book arcs follows these two heroes fighting each other, after Cottonmouth teams up with another villain, »

Frightfest 2015: ‘Bloodsucking Bastards’ Review

3 September 2015 6:55 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Fran Kranz, Emma Fitzpatrick, Joey Kern, Jacquelyn Palmquist, Pedro Pascal | Written by Dr. God, Ryan Mitts | Directed by Brian James O’Connell

Horror and comedy have always gone hand in hand. Laughs often alleviate the tension and who doesn’t crack a smile at the goriest, over the top scenes of horror? But the true horror-comedy, a purposeful bland of the two genres can be trickier to pull off than you think. When it works, it can produce wonders such as Shaun of the Dead, Brain Dead and last years horror hit, Wyrmwood. But when it doesn’t work, eurgh… That’s when things can go horribly wrong. But what happens when the comedy takes over and the laughs outweigh the horror? Well you get fantastically funny, bloodsoaked comedy like Bloodsucking Bastards.

Cranking up the laughs to eleven, Bloodsucking Bastards is the Office Space of the horror genre, a »

Johnny Depp Brings the Heat In New Dior Sauvage Commercial

1 September 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Damn, Johnny Depp!  The sexy star appears in a new ad for Dior's "Sauvage" fragrance -- and he's never looked better.  The commercial, which was directed by Jean Baptiste Mondino, definitely feels more like a mini-movie. The clip opens with the "Black Mass" star playing an electric guitar in a dimly-lit club before hitting the road to embark on a mysterious journey through the desert.  "I gotta get out of here," Depp says as he vacates the city. "Which way? I don't know," he muses. "What am I looking for? Something I can't see," he says, just before stopping in the desert. "I can feel it."  The actor's new campaign definitely feels reminiscent of Matthew McConaughey's ambiguous Lincoln commercials which first surfaced last year.    Still, we don't mind seeing these A-listers on both the big and small screens! What do you think about Johnny's new commercial? Tell toofab in »

Rooster McConaughey’s ‘West Texas Investors Club’ Shoots Down Fly-by-Night Business Idea (Exclusive Video)

1 September 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It doesn’t look like Rooster McConaughey and Butch Gilliam will be flying the friendly skies with one young entrepreneur anytime soon. In an exclusive clip obtained by TheWrap of Tuesday’s episode of CNBC’s “West Texas Investors Club,” a young man is seeking $75,000 to help launch his own air travel app. The money would go toward obtaining a Part 135 certificate. “What the hell is a 135? What is that?” McConaughey asks. “It’s a certificate that allows you to fly and charge people money for your services,” Gilliam explains.

Cary Fukunaga Weighs in On ‘True Detective’ Season 2

31 August 2015 5:38 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cary Fukunaga opened up about his lack of creative input on the second season of HBO’s “True Detective” while speaking to Variety about this week’s cover story about Netflix’s “Beasts of No Nation,” which hits stands on Tuesday.

The director said it always part of the plan for him to leave after his episodes starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson wrapped in 2014. “The whole pitch was that in a true anthology, we want to sit it on a shelf, and every season we have a new feature director and make this wonderful miniseries,” Fukunaga said, explaining that they shopped the conceit to Showtime and Netflix along with HBO. “I was going to be the first one. And I’d be there to shepherd as much as I could the following seasons. My departure was always planned.”

The series’ second season, which was widely panned by critics, used »

The plot follows a rough-around-the-edges prospector Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey) who stumbles upon one of the largest gold mines in the world in the Indonesian jungle. Which, you may not be surprised to learn given the word “scandal” before, turned out to be bogus. Howard is playing Kay, the long-time girlfriend of Wells, who gets wrapped up in his schemes.She joins a cast that also includes Edgar Ramirez, Michelle Williams, Joshua Harto, Corey Stoll, Rachael Taylor, Bruce Greenwood, Stacy Keach and Timothy Simons. Gaghan is shooting in Thailand, Mexico and New York, though obviously not all at once. »

Indiewire Emmy Ballot 2015: Our Endorsements (And a Plea For Sanity After Last Year's Debacle)

28 August 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Heading into the 2014 Primetime Emmys, most prognosticators believed in a few predominant theories: "Modern Family's" four-year winning streak as Outstanding Comedy Series would be snapped, most likely by "Orange is the New Black," which would make it the first-ever winner in the category from a streaming network. Matthew McConaughey and Billy Bob Thornton would be rewarded for their work on "True Detective" and "Fargo," respectively, since one was nominated for Actor in a Drama Series and the other for Actor in a Miniseries or Movie. Louis C.K. or William H. Macy would take the stage as Outstanding Comedy Actor, and "The Normal Heart" would take home a bunch of trophies, including one for Matt Bomer.  But none of that happened. It's not that we here at Indiewire don't like upsets. Unpredictability is an exciting element of award shows (and one becoming more and more rare at the Oscars with all »

A history of stoners in film

27 August 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of American Ultra’s release in UK cinemas, we look at the rise of the stoner in film, from the 30s to the present...

"The motion picture you are about to witness may startle you. It would not have been possible, otherwise, to sufficiently emphasize the frightful toll of the new drug menace which is destroying the youth of America in alarmingly increasing numbers. Marihuana is that drug - a violent narcotic - an unspeakable scourge - the Real Public Enemy Number One!

So reads the opening crawl to the now infamous film Reefer Madness. Originally released in 1936, it was designed as a hard-hitting expose of marijuana and its inherent dangers. The drug could cause "violent, uncontrollable laughter," the movie's introduction read. It could induce "dangerous hallucinations," "monstrous extravagances," all eventually leading to "shocking acts of physical violence... ending often in incurable insanity."

Reefer Madness was one of many »
