Another Stephen King novel is getting the remake treatment with news that Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures are readying a new version of Firestarter (via The Daily Dead).

The original novel, published in 1981, was made into a feature film in 1984 by Mark Lester (Commando) and starred Drew Barrymore (Santa Clarita Diet, The Wedding Singer) in the lead role. Martin Sheen, George C. Scott, Art Carney, David Kieth and Heather Locklear co-starred and grossed over $17million domestically.

A Random Video Montage of People Breaking Through Glass in Movies

28 April 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

This actually reminds me to create an article called “the best glass scenes in movies.”  Glass can be a pretty fun and integral part of a film.   Perhaps no more was glass a “character” in a film than in the movie Die Hard.   One of the best premises of the movie itself is that Bruce Willis’s character is barefoot for virtually the entire movie.  But at one point in the film, Hans Gruber (the villain) instructs his guys to “shoot the glass” so that John Mcclane (Willis) has to run on top of shredded shards of glass that would bloody

Split 2 Gets An Interesting New Title

28 April 2017 12:05 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

M. Night Shyamalan has being on one hell of a comeback lately, with The Visit and Split going a long way to erasing the memories of mega flops like After Earth, The Last Airbender, and (shudder) The Happening. With Split, the man known for his love of twists deliver quite a doozy, and if you’re unaware of how the multiple personality disorder themed psychological thriller panned out, consider this your spoiler warning: The movie was actually the long awaited sequel to 2000’s grounded superhero flick Unbreakable, with Bruce Willis returning as David Dunn, the blue collar worker impervious to harm, setting him on a quest to end the reign of James McAvoy’s Kevin, who is now in control of his 24 separate personalities, and has become a powerful, supernatural entity dubbed The Horde by the media. If that juicy bit of information has you champing at the bit for more, »

Author: Zehra Phelan

It comes as no surprise that some of our most heinous historical world events have become the subject of a cinematic depiction. As audiences wanting their thirst for great cinema and intrigue in world issues grow we have had, in the naughties alone, Roman Polanski deliver The Pianist in 2002 and more recently László Nemes’ Son of Saul to quench our desire. Even this week, we have the release of Terry George’s The Promise which tells the story of the Armenian Genocide in the final years of the Ottoman Empire with Oscar Isaac, Charlotte LeBon and Christian Bale hitting our cinemas.

Whether these events are genocides, horrific murders, acts of terrorism or even demonic paranormal activities, our quest for knowledge, understanding and feeling has inspired filmmakers for years. Their films set out to shine a light on the atrocities and suffering of man, and act to empower »

More Max

With the great critical success of Mad Max: Fury Road, it came as no surprise that there was a lot of talk of more adventures from George Miller’s universe. However, since then, we’ve not heard much else. In a recent interview Miller has revealed that there are plans in place for a trilogy saying, “We dug down deep into the subtext, the backstory of all the characters, and indeed the world…and without really thinking about it, we wrote two other screenplays just as part of the bible of the stories. Somewhere, if the planets align, there will be two other films.” Read more here.

Unbreakable Split

Director M. Night Shyamalan has unveiled his sequel to Unbreakable, which will also serve a follow up to his latest flick Split which was released earlier this year. Not only will James McAvoy will be reprising his role, but »

M Night Shyamalan is finally returning to one of his best films, nearly 20 years after it was first released.

M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Unbreakable’-and-‘Split’ Sequel ‘Glass’ Will Arrive in 2019

26 April 2017 5:46 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

For seventeen years, fans of M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable have wished for a sequel to the moody superhero drama. Now it looks like the filmmaker is making their wish come true: Shyamalan announced today on Twitter that his next film will be Glass, a sequel to both Unbreakable and his most recent film Split. This news gives away a twist involving Split: a brief ending scene reveals it’s set in same universe as Unbreakable.

“My new film is the sequel to #Unbreakable And #Split. It was always my dream to have both films collide in this third film,” Shyamalan tweeted, confirming that Unbreakable’s Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson would both return, along with Split’s James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy.

Unbreakable focused on depressed security guard David Dunn (Willis) who, after surviving a deadly train crash, realizes he’s never been sick or injured in his entire life. »

M. Night Shyamalan's 'Glass' Will Bring Together 'Unbreakable,' 'Split' and Samuel L. Jackson

26 April 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The ancient question for fans is "When is it okay to spoil a part of a movie?" The obvious answer would seem to be "never," but it's not quite that simple. At some point a detail of a movie becomes such a point of pop culture reference that it transcends being a spoiler. If at this point you don't know that Darth Vader is Luke's father or that Bruce Willis was a ghost in The Sixth Sense, you're just not a part of popular culture. Funnily enough that brings us to another M. Night Shyamalan movie. When Split hit theaters earlier this year, nobody really knew that it was a secret sequel to Unbreakable. But now that it's made an astonishing $275 million world wide, the Unbreakable connection has clearly transcended from "thing you...

Unbreakable / Split Sequel Announced; Bruce Willis and Sam Jackson Return

26 April 2017 1:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After months of teasing that he was writing a new script, M. Night Shyamalan has finally broken his silence in a storm of tweets. His latest movie Split, released in January, has earned more than $275 million worldwide on a modest budget of $9 million and has been hailed as a return to form for Shyamalan. Spoiler Alert for those who have not seen Split ahead. Shyamalan has said that the Split ending, which tied the film to fan favorite Unbreakable, was 15 years in the making and that he went to great lengths to keep it a secret, so much so that he left the last scene out of test screenings.

For months speculation over the possibility of whether or not M. Night Shyamalan would be tackling an Unbreakable sequel or a Split sequel erupted after the release of Split and today the speculation ends. The answer is both. The director announced »

Newswire: M. Night Shyamalan confirms he’s making a Split / Unbreakable crossover sequel

26 April 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

[Fair Warning: This post contains spoilers for Split.]

Split, the wildly entertaining (and extremely profitable) low-budget B-movie that has proven to be writer-director M. Night Shyamalan’s creative and commercial comeback, has two twists, neither of which are very easy to guess. The first is that it’s actually playing its premise straight, which is to say that it doesn’t really have a twist at all. The second is that takes place in the same fictional universe as Unbreakable, the pre-comic-book-blockbuster-boom reimagining of superhero origin stories that has come to be regarded as one of Shyamalan’s best films.

After months of hints, Shyamalan revealed this morning that his next project will in fact be a proper sequel to both Unbreakable and Split—one that will presumably pit Bruce Willis’ everyman of steel David Dunn against James McAvoy’s The Horde, with some involvement from Samuel L. Jackson’s ...
