Scream Queens is slick, engrossing slasher TV, even if its body count hasn't yet risen to the expected heights...
This review contains spoilers.
1.4 Haunted House
At its heart, Scream Queens is a slasher series. Strip away the high-camp tone, the starry cast and the satire, and what you get is a show about young people getting stalked by a serial killer. And part of a slasher show's job is to keep its audience on edge, to keep them always anticipating the next episode and fear for the lives of their favourite characters. Up until this point, I've been looking forward to Scream Queens for the almost schlocky entertainment factor. The mystery had yet to catch fire but Haunted House, the first of several Halloween-themed episodes (always a good thing in my eyes), changed that and upped the ante considerably.
We start off with perhaps the show's funniest sequence yet. »
Yesterday saw the first image of Matthew McConaughey’s radical body transformation in his next film Gold. Not to be outdone, his Dallas Buyers Club co-star Jared Leto has undergone a similar appearance overhaul to play the Joker in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. In an interview with Zane Lowe, Will Smith – who stars alongside Leto as Floyd ‘Deadshot’ Lawton – spoke how seriously the actor took the role.
“[Suicide Squad] is insane. I’ve never actually met Jared Leto. We worked together for 6 months and we’ve never exchanged a word outside of ‘Action!’ and ‘Cut!’ I literally have not met him yet. So, the first time I see him will be ‘Hey, Jared. What’s up?’ He was all in on the Joker.”

Jared Leto went so Method to play The Joker in "Suicide Squad" that he missed his opportunity to bond with The Fresh Prince. Filming is now over for David Ayer's DC Comics movie, which stars Will Smith as Deadshot, but Smith chatted with Beats 1 Radio about the Squad (as well as his new music). He was asked about working with Jared Leto and gave a somewhat unexpected answer:
How 'bout this? I've never actually met Jared Leto. So we worked together for six months and we've never exchanged a word outside of 'Action!' and 'Cut!' We've never said 'Hello,' we never said 'good day.' I've only ever spoken to him as Deadshot and him as the Joker. I literally have not met him yet. So, the first time I see him will be 'Hey, Jared. What's up?' 'Will, hey man, how you doing? Nice to meet you. »

Scream Queens, Season 1, Episode 4, “Haunted House”
Directed by Bradley Buecker
Airs on Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on Fox
Is Scream Queens scary? Furthermore, does it even want to be? After weeks of establishing the characters and brutally murdering more than a handful, the time has come to finally assess the camp/horror mash-up in the area that counts: Is it at all horrifying for the viewers to watch at home? After “Haunted House”, the beginning of a Halloween trilogy spanning three episodes, the answer is a definite yes. Putting aside the obsession with Chanel Oberlin (who remains insufferable) and a few side adventures (that remain mostly pointless), the central mystery kicks into full gear this week and brings a heaping dose of actual scares along with the extra intrigue. Upending cultural expectations of scary stories or mocking their tropes is one thing, »

While Saint Chanel Oberlin pulled a Taylor Swift on Tuesday’s Scream Queens, bestowing Chanel-o-ween gifts upon her adoring fans, the Fox comedy rewarded viewers with a few gifts of its own: actual answers!

Yesterday, a report surfaced that Universal Pictures has narrowed its Fast & Furious 8 director search down to four candidates, F. Gary Gray, Adam Wingard, Louis Leterrier and William Eubank. While principal photography on Fast & Furious 8 isn't expected to begin until next spring, pre-production is slated to begin at the end of this month, and the studio was expected to make their decision very quickly. Variety reports that F. Gary Gray has been selected to take the helm, and while Universal hasn't confirmed the report, star-producer Vin Diesel posted a photo of himself and the filmmaker on his Facebook page.
This news comes less than a week after Vin Diesel himself said that he wants Rob Cohen, who directed the first movie in the franchise, 2001's The Fast and the Furious, to come back for Fast & Furious 8. The actor said that his late co-star Paul Walker always wanted him »
The immigration thriller was directed by “Gravity” screenwriter Jonás Cuarón and stars Gael García Bernal (“Y Tu Mama Tambien”) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“Watchmen”). It debuted this month at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it received strong reviews for its performances and direction, and won the Special Presentation Prize from the International Federation of Film Critics.
“‘Desierto’ operates on a level that is swift, primal and unrelenting,” wrote Variety critic Justin Chang in a favorable notice.
The film centers on a group of Mexicans whose attempts to cross the border into the United States are complicated by a shotgun-wielding vigilante. Given the headlines Donald Trump has generated by attacking immigration policy during the recent presidential race, the subject matter is certainly topical.

An ecstatically original work of film-history-philosophy with a digital-cinema palette of acutely crafted compositions. Amour Fou seamlessly blends together the paintings of Vermeer, the acting of Bresson, and the psychological undercurrents of a Dostoevsky novel. It is an intensely thrilling and often slyly comic work that manages to combine a passionately dispassionate love story of the highest order with a larger socio-historical examination of a new era of freedom, and the tragedy beset by »

The Texan actor – who is no stranger to body transformation in the name of art, having shed pounds to play a rodeo cowboy with Aids in Dallas Buyers Club (2013) and bulked up to play a muscle-bound stripper in Magic Mike (2012) – will portray unlucky modern-day prospector Kenny Wells in the mining drama. It marks the first new film from Syriana director Stephen Gaghan in a decade.

From his ripped torso in Magic Mike to his skeletal frame in Dallas Buyers Club, Matthew McConaughey has undergone yet another body transformation for his next movie Gold. That, or his character from The Wolf of Wall Street ate too much cocaine.
The movie is directed by Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) and is written by Patrick Massett & John Zinman (The Blacklist). It also stars Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World), Corey Stoll (Ant-Man) and Toby Kebbell (Fantastic Four). The film will be released in 2016.

Is that you, Matthew McConaughey?! The Oscar-winning actor looked a far cry from his normal self while filming his new movie "Gold" with Bryce Dallas Howard in New York City on Sunday. Sporting balding blonde tresses, a few extra pounds and a cheap gray suit, Matt looked nearly unrecognizable as he was pictured on the set with Bryce. The "Jurassic World" star had an interesting getup, too. Dallas looked like a different person in her metallic gold snakeskin-printed dress. The 34-year-old likewise traded in her signature red locks for curly strawberry-blonde tresses. The dramatic movie -- directed by "Traffic's" Stephen Gaghan -- follows the story of an unlikely pair who travel to the Indonesian jungle in search of gold. This isn't the first time Matt has totally transformed his look for a role, though. McConaughey dropped a whopping 47 lbs to play Ron Woodroff in "Dallas Buyers Club" back in »

Matthew McConaughey is really committing to his new movie. Though it's not the first time he has completely transformed for a role (see: Dallas Buyers Club), he's never quite looked like this. The Oscar winner put on some weight, lost some hair, and got a new set of teeth (through the wonders of the hair and makeup department) to star in Gold, in which he plays a man who goes to the Indonesian jungle in search of, you guessed it, gold. The story is loosely based on the Bre-x mining scandal of 1993. Bryce Dallas Howard and Édgar Ramírez are also on the set, though they don't look nearly as crazy as McConaughey. »

Alright, alright, wait — what? Matthew McConaughey looks nearly unrecognizable for his new movie Gold. The Oscar winner was photographed filming on the streets of New York City on Sunday, Oct. 4. McConaughey, 45, does away with his six-pack abs and lustrous full blonde locks for a pudgier figure and bald look in the Stephen Gaghan-directed drama. His attire is completely different, too, and mirrors that of Christian Bale's character in American Hustle. Instead of his Magic Mike go-to leather pants, he was spotted wearing a business [...] »
Bald, pot-bellied and sporting a suit that would make a Savile Row tailor cry, this is Mm as you've never seen him before.
He's previously lost a lot of weight for Dallas Buyers Club, but this is something quite different.

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have our first look at Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez in the upcoming "Gold" film, which co-stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell and Bruce Greenwood. Check out the photo below. Plot: McConaughey stars as a struggling businessman named Kenny Wells who teams up with an equally hapless geologist (Ramirez) to find fortune by searching for gold in the Indonesian jungle. The new movie is directed by Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) and is currently filming. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
Is that who we think it is? Matthew McConaughey exchanged his beach body for a beer belly when he filmed scenes for his upcoming movie, Gold, this past week in New York City. As cameras rolled, the Oscar-winner showed off his new costume that consisted of a dad bod, gray suit and tropical printed tie. He completed the look with a brief case, cigarette and a pocket square. For those who went straight to the face, you may have likely noticed McConaughey's new hairstyle that featured a longer look in the back but a bit of balding on the top. Don't worry, ladies. Again, it's just for the new movie. Gold, which is set to hit theaters in 2016, tells the story of Kenny Wells (McConaughey) who »
