‘Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension’ Moved to 2015

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount Pictures is shaking up the order of its parade of horribles.

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension” is being moved from Oct. 25, 2014 to a March 13, 2015 opening. The film was previously entitled “Paranormal Activity 5,” but it sounds like this haunted house tale is being treated like a spin-off instead of a direct sequel.

The studio is also moving “Scouts vs. Zombies” from the March 13 slot now taken up by “Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension” and transplanting that to February 20, 2015.

The “Paranormal Activity” movie will have some formidable competition in its new release date. Ron Howard’s whaling drama “Heart of the Sea” and Disney’s live action “Cinderella” are both scheduled to premiere on that date. In its former perch it would have gone head-to-head with “Ouija” and the Keanu Reeves, “they killed my puppy” thriller “John Wick.”

“Scout v. Zombies” is a horror comedy about troop members who »

Lambasted Elba and Henson Thriller Going Unpunished to Top Domestic Box Office Chart

14 September 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

No Good Deed’ movie going unpunished to top weekend box office? (photo: Idris Elba in ‘No Good Deed’) Apologies for the bad wordplay above, but if Friday estimates are a reliable indicator, No Good Deed should indeed go unpunished to the top of the domestic box office this weekend, September 12-14, 2014. But why "unpunished"? Well, so far the Sam Miller-directed thriller starring four-time Emmy nominee Idris Elba (Luther) and Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) has a downright putrid 10% score and 2.6/10 average among Rotten Tomatoes‘ top critics. Sony Pictures, whose subsidiary ScreenGems is distributing No Good Deed, reportedly opted to skip late Thursday screenings to ensure that the film’s plot twist would be kept under wraps. More likely, however, it was the critics’ derisive remarks that Sony wanted under wraps. For instance: "The final plot twist is about as »

V For Vendetta’s James McTeigue Signs On To Direct Alien Sleeper Cell

5 September 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Wachowski’s golden boy, James McTeigue, has joined a new project from a new studio – Alien Sleeper Cell. Doesn’t that title give you the most delightful chills? Alas, it’s got nothing to do with xenomorph Alien franchise.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will capture the same tone as The Bourne Identity and TV show The Americans. But in an alien invasion-style set-up. Consider us intrigued!

While there’s scant details about Alien Sleeper Cell, it’s known that McTeigue will direct the flick from a script by up-and-comer Morgan Davis Foehl. Foehl just completed work on Michael Mann’s Cyber script. As it stands now, new production outfit Scanbox Studios are currently putting together financing and brokering international deals for the pic. Prime Universe Films’ Adrian Askarich who recently finished work on Fox’s Hitman: Agent 47 will co-produce, and Felipe Linz will join as executive producer. »

170 Days until Oscars: Brody & Dreyfuss

5 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

170 is the amount of days by which Adrien Brody (The Pianist) narrowly defeated Richard Dreyfuss (The Goodbye Girl) to become the Youngest Best Actor winner ever. Do you think both of them deserved their wins?

Adrien Brody (29) and Richard Dreyfus (30) are the 2 youngest Lead Actor winners

1977 Best Actor 2002 Best Actor Woody Allen, Annie Hall Adrien Brody, The Pianist Richard Burton, Equus Nicolas Cage, Adaptation Richard Dreyfus, The Goodbye Girl Michael Caine, The Quiet American Marcelo Mastroianni, A Special Day Daniel Day Lewis, Gangs of New York John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever Jack Nicholson, About Schmidt

 

The most hilarious thing about this statistic is that Adrien Brody is both the youngest Best Actor winner at 29 And the only twentysomething winner. Meanwhile "29" is actually the most common age to win Best Actress. These eight women all accomplished it and none of them were anywhere close to making a "youngest" list.

5 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Update: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just won't die, and hopefully the new cast will give it the breath of life it needs to make the parody film work. Lily Collins is now out, but Lily James (the new Cinderella) is in. Other new cast members include Sam Riley (Maleficent), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Douglas Booth (Romeo & Juliet) as Mr. Darcy's friend Bingley and Emma Greenwell ("Shameless") as Bingley's sister, and Jack Huston (Kill Your Darlings) as the handsome Lt. Wickham. It hasn't been clarified if Riley is playing Mr. Darcy or if that role has yet to be cast.

May 2, 2013: Lily Collins (Mirror, Mirror) will star in Pride, Prejudice and Zombies and, in doing so, brings the project back from grave. Burr Steers (17 Again) will direct, which - if you're counting - makes the project's the fifth director. The movie is based on Seth Grahame-Smith's reimagining of »

20 Little Known Facts That Will Make You See Famous Actors Differently

1 September 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s easy to think you know an actor through the characters that they play, or even to assume you know something about an actor by the sheer fact that they’re an actor. Particularly when someone is often type-cast, it can sometimes be hard to swallow when you find out something that changes how you see a big name. For instance, when a huge star like Tom Cruise became an insane scientologist, or when you find out that awesome badass action-star Vin Diesel has been an avid Dungeons and Dragons fan for 20 years, or even the knowledge that Pam and Jim aren’t a couple in real life (weep), can change your perspective on an actor you took for granted as their character(s).

Sometimes our favourite actors’ rise to fame has been shaky, unintended, or even baffling, such as Danny Trejo’s movement from drug counselor to world-class badass. »

Led by Tesla, Luxe Plug-In Cars Are Electrifying Hollywood

29 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the Aug. 22 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. There was a time when Hollywood's awareness of electric cars began and ended with Ed Begley Jr. plugging in his prehistoric electric Rabbit at Morton's while the valets gaped. But what was once an eco-activist-actor's lonely crusade is an increasingly plausible choice in a town starting to embrace electric cars as warmly as it does opaque accounting. The Toyota Prius hybrid, launched in the U.S. in 2000, made an alt-fuel car broadly acceptable in Hollywood -- everybody from Michael Douglas to Natalie Portman

A Tale Of Love And Darkness Promo Poster Offers a First Look at Natalie Portman’s Directorial Debut [Updated]

26 August 2014 7:54 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve obtained a first look at the A Tale of Love and Darkness poster for Natalie Portman’s feature directorial debut, which also gives us our first peek at Portman in the film.  The actress wrote, directed, and stars in the adaptation of Amos Oz’s memoir, which recounts the journalist’s childhood in 1940s Jerusalem during the early years after the establishment of the Israeli state.  Portman herself was born in Jersualem before emigrating to New York as a child, and she takes on the role of Oz’s mentally ill mother in the feature adaptation.  This promo poster shows Portman covered in rain, and while it’s unlikely that this will be the theatrical one-sheet, it’s certainly an intriguing peek at Portman’s first feature film as a director. Hit the jump to take a look at the A Tale of Love and Darkness poster.  No »
