Fresh from her eye-catching role opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in indie zombie flick Maggie, not to mention a recurring role in Fox’s Scream Queens, Deadline reports that Abigail Breslin is poised to topline Freak Show as a sort of Queen Bee cheerleader.
Breslin joins Alex Lawther for the feature film, which is to be adapted from James St James’ high-school novel of the same name. Acting as Trudie Styler’s directorial debut, Freak Show charts the story of Billy Bloom (Lawther), a city kid who faces the timeless struggle of trying to fit in with his new classmates upon moving to a new town with his father. What makes his plight all the more difficult, however, is the fact that the boldly overconfident Billy often turns in for classes dressed as a drag queen, soon setting his sights on the coveted title of Homecoming Queen.

If Stoop Kid’s looking for another reason to leave his stoop, I think I’ve finally found one.
Nickelodeon is currently developing a made-for-tv Hey Arnold! movie, set shortly after the events of the June 2004 series finale, our sister publication Variety reports.

Though Nickelodeon couldn’t confirm when the movie might air, we do know it will tie up several loose ends, including answering the big mystery surrounding Arnold’s M.I.A. parents. (Update: Arnold’s parents were shown once in the “Parents Day” special in 2000.) The titular character, »
It’s been almost 40 years since “Rocky” first premiered, but you’d never guess it watching Sylvester Stallone strut down the black carpet premiere of “Creed” at the Regency Village Theater in Westwood on Thursday night.
“Either you let Rocky go out into the sunset or you believe in youth and a young kid’s ambition, and I thought I’ve been wrong so many times in my life, I don’t want to be wrong again,” Stallone said.

The trailer for Midnight Special, a new sci-fi drama headlined by Michael Shannon and Joel Edgerton has arrived online. The film follows a father and son who go on the run after the dad learns his child possesses special powers.
This one’s a good way off with a release date set for April 15th, 2016, though we’re liking what we’re seeing so far. Kirsten Dunst and Adam Driver also star, while Shannon’s Take Shelter helmer Jeff Nichols directs.

Following the first trailer and poster released last month, Sony Pictures has unveiled the second poster for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, set to hit theaters nationwide on February 5, 2016. Stars Lily James and Sam Riley are seen on this new one-sheet, both brandishing swords, preparing themselves for the zombie onslaught as the dead rise around them. Based on the iconic characters created by Jane Austen, this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel puts a unique spin on a literary classic.
In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, »
Four new releases with theatrical pedigrees were among the top 10 home video sellers in the week ending Nov. 15, but none could take the No. 1 spot away from Walt Disney Studios’ “Inside Out” – not even Arnold Schwarzenegger’s latest “Terminator” movie.
“Inside Out,” the latest animated adventure from Pixar, remained at No. 1 for the second consecutive week on the Nielsen VideoScan overall disc sales chart.
Paramount’s “Terminator Genisys,” with a domestic box office gross of just under $90 million the lowest earner among the original 1984 action classic’s four sequels, finished a strong second, with 74% as many unit sales as the Pixar pic.
The fifth “Terminator” film did, however, debut at No. 1 on Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart – although it beat out “Inside Out” for the top spot by just 1%. “Terminator Genisys” generated 64% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc, Nielsen data shows.

25 years ago today, audiences first saw the beloved Christmas comedy movie “Home Alone.” Here’s to a quarter century of kids collecting clever tips on how to outwit would-be burglars, getting spooked by evil furnaces, quoting fictional gangster movies, and (maybe) learning that family is the best gift of all. Directed by Chris Columbus — who would go on to helm the first two “Harry Potter” films — and produced by John Hughes, “Home Alone” became the highest-grossing live action comedy in the U.S. and worldwide after its release in 1990, and it held that record until it was overtaken by “The Hangover: Part II” in 2011. A favorite holiday movie of many, “Home Alone” has secured its place in pop culture with plenty of parodies, with this frightening personalized holiday card, a reference on “Family Guy,” four (mostly ill-advised) sequels, and a John Williams-penned song that’s become a staple of school Christmas concerts. »

This week Neil Calloway looks at more 80s films that would benefit from a gender reversal remake…
With the official synopsis of the new Ghostbusters film announced this week, soon after Dan Aykroyd saying it might be better than the original (given that he has a cameo in the new film, he’s probably contractually obliged to say that), alongside the recent new that mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey will appear in a remake of 1989’s Road House, here are more films from the 1980s that need an all female reboot, or in the words of Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis in the much missed Flickering Myth Newsgasm, “re-high heel”.
Die Hard – A Good Day To Die Hard was, in North America at least, the lowest grossing of the series, and though there is a planned prequel, wouldn’t it be better to remake the original with a woman as the lead? »

Paris — The devastating violence that hit Paris late Friday night — a coordinated series of terrorist attacks against crowded locations around the city — eerily mirrors elements of a shock thriller entitled “Made in France” directed by Nicolas Boukhrief that was set to open in French theaters next Wednesday.
Update: According to a statement issued Saturday morning, “Following the tragic events of last night, the distributor Pretty Pictures and producer Radar Films immediately decided to postpone the film’s release to an later date.”
The film, which has already raised controversy with a provocative poster depicting an Ak-47 assault rifle superimposed over the Eiffel Tower (tagline: “The threat comes from inside”), had its release canceled once before this year when original distributor Snd Distribution pulled out following the terrorist attacks on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper headquarters last January.
Whereas sensitivity to actual events motivated Snd’s decision to drop the film, Pretty »

Master of None, Season 1
Released Friday, November 6th, 2015 by Netflix
After a stellar first half of the season, the second half of Master of None solidifies it as the best comedy on Netflix. Aziz Ansari’s show, which he co-created with former Parks and Recreation writer Alan Yang, is a breezy binge of ten thirty minute episodes, although some episodes might require viewers to pause before proceeding to collect the pieces of their heart from off the floor. Though not as acutely focused on race as some of the earlier episodes, Dev’s identity as an Indian man continues to come up in ways that feel all too real for minorities. The show also settles on a single love interest for the latter half in Rachel (played wonderfully by Saturday Night Live alum Noel Wells), allowing it to more deeply investigate a relationship »

In a few days, audiences will flock to a movie about a dystopian future where people are hunted and killed on live television for the nation's amusement. (We're talking about The Hunger Games, by the way, not Love the Coopers.) The same thing happened this week in 1987 -- only then, the movie was The Running Man, and the righteous hero who tried to destroy the game from the inside was Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Running Man actually has several details in common with The Hunger Games. Both are based on novels about oppressive future governments. Both begin with a text crawl that spells out the premise, including the title of the TV show (which is also the name of the movie). Both have...

He always said he'd be back, and even though it may have taken 12 years, Arnold Schwarzenegger is a man true to his word. His seven-year stint as California's governor caused him to miss out on starring in Terminator Salvation, but he came back as the iconic T-800 in this summer's Terminator Genisys. As an added bonus, fans were treated to more than one Arnold this time around!
The story initially follows the same conceit as The Terminator, with John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sending Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect his mother, Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), and safeguard the future. But an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future. »
Arnold Schwarzenegger goes back to the future Terminator Genisys: As I said in our post premiering a clip from this week's Blu-ray, Terminator Genisys "may just be one of the most fascinating franchise movies ever made. It's a sequel that's also a prequel, and then a sidequel, but also a near-total reboot with its cast, despite using all of the same characters we first met 25+ years ago. It takes place in the future, past, and near-present, with a story that spans decades but, perspective-wise, unfolds over a few days." That said, everything that makes Terminator Genisys so unique is also what makes it so frustrating. The story is all over the map, and its charging pace means it never really has time to earn its own spin on all these characters...

Ansari explored the issue further in an essay for the New York Times.
“Even at a time when minorities account for almost 40% of the American population, when Hollywood wants an ‘everyman,’ what it really wants is a straight white guy. But a straight white guy is not every man. The ‘everyman’ is everybody.”
Ansari echoed the same sentiment when speaking to Variety before the premiere of “Masters of None.”
“In most TV shows and in film, when you see the everyman, it’s always a straight white guy.” he said. “In reality, the everyman is everybody.”
“There had to be someone who heard his name tossed around for the role and thought: ‘Wait, »

"I'll be back"? Uhh, no thank you. We're good. Screen Junkies' Honest Trailers have run the gamut on which bad blockbusters they skewer—and their latest target is an "awful" summer sequel that was a disappointment for so many of us, Terminator: Genisys. Starring an aged Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jai Courtney, a.k.a. "the homeless man's Channing Tatum," the film features a ton of tired catchphrases and plot points so confusing that even the film's characters don't know what is happening. So wait, what is Skynet now? An already outdated technology that's coming to fruition through some sort of pubescent hologram? We want to understand you, »

As the producers behind "Terminator Genisys" look at the franchise and, ahem, "readjust" following this summer's disappointing box office showing, terrible reviews from critics and a dreadful reception from fans, it's time to take a look back at how it all went wrong. Screen Junkies have given the movie the Honest Trailer treatment and pretty much nails it. Read More: Review: 'Terminator: Genisys Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtenay & Jason Clarke Bereft of any originality and with constant callbacks to the previous films in the series, 'Genisys' also tried to revamp the storyline in the style of "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," but it was a narrative that constantly needed explaining and made little sense. Then there was the "twist" involving Jason Clarke's character given away in the film's marketing, plus Jai Courtney once again making a franchise appearance, as Hollywood continues to try and make him. »
