Fright At Home – The Best of September!! The Shallows, The Neon Demon, Salem’S Lot and More

11 hours ago | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Typically what we do with our ongoing Fright At Home column, is showcase the top releases of whatever respective week that the column falls on. This time though, I thought it would be fun to spread the coverage to highlight some of our favorite releases to have been put out during the month of September, opening the coverage up to put the spotlight not only Every DVD and/or Bluray, but the ones that caught our eyes. Some of the year’s best genre films have hit home video this month, so it would be silly to leave some of them out just because they came out last week, so they’ve been included, with everything from this week’s releases of The Shallows and The Neon Demon to the month’s earlier releases like The Conjuring 2 and a trio of Stephen King adaptions. So if you’re looking »

Curtis Hanson Photo: David Shankbone

Stars including Russell Crowe, James Woods and Tobey Maguire have today paid tribute to Curtis Hanson, who has died of natural causes at his Hollywood home. Aged 71, Hanson, whose films included L.A. Confidential and Wonder Boys, is believed to have suffered from Alzheimer's disease for some years.

Crowe thanked the director for making his acting into a real carer, while others praised him in a similar way, with Eminem saying that Hanson had made him into an actor for 8 Mile. Rob Lowe, who starred in Bad Influence, described him as smart, kind and a great storyteller.

Hanson, who started out as a screenwriter with an adaptation of Hp Lovecraft's The Dunwich Horror, was known for his eclectic interests. His other successes included The River Wild and The Hand That Rocks The Cradle. He last worked in 2012, co-directing Chasing Mavericks with Michael Apted. »

‘Family Guy’ Won’t Do Any More ‘Star Wars’ Parodies, and Here’s Why

23 July 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Don’t expect to see any more “Star Wars” parodies from Fox’s animated hit “Family Guy.”

The show produced three “Star Wars” homages (2007’s “Blue Harvest,” 2009’s “Something, Something, Something Dark Side” and 2010’s “It’s a Trap!”) several years ago. But that was back before Disney acquired Lucasfilm and jumpstarted the franchise.

“The new regime is a little more difficult to deal with,” executive producer Alec Sulkin said. “Before we were just dealing with Lucasfilm. Seth [MacFarlane] had a good relationship with them. It’s not that Seth has a bad relationship with Disney, but they’re a bit more rigid.”

Executive producer Rich Appel said it was understandable, as “they’re a little more careful now that they’re rolling out new movies.”

Yesterday, Cartoon Network released a highlight reel to show off its new DC Comics animated series, Justice League Action.

That roster includes 60 different heroes, and 40 different villains, according to producer Butch Lukic. While he of course didn’t go into full details about who we could expect to see, he did reveal that while the Trinity of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman would be “featured in most of the stories,” iconic and niche characters would be peppered in throughout the 11-minute episodes.

That list includes favorites like Plastic Man, John Constantine, Lex Luthor, Mr. Freeze, Riddler, Mr. Mxyzptik, Zod, and Darkseid, as well as lesser-knowns like Demons Three, Space Cabby (voiced by Patton Oswalt), Atrocitus, and Steppenwolf. »

‘The Bell Jar’: Kirsten Dunst’s Entire Career Has Been Leading Up To Her Feature Directorial Debut – Girl Talk

21 July 2016 8:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present and future.

In the spring of 1999, Sofia Coppola’s feature directorial debut, a big screen version of Jeffrey Eugenides’ novel “The Virgin Suicides,” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. A delicate, deeply feeling and achingly human portrait of suburban ennui and teenage depression, the film was anchored by a performance by a then-17-year-old Kirsten Dunst. As Lux Lisbon, the prettiest and wildest and most broken of the five Lisbon sisters that the film so intimately chronicles, Dunst was tasked with straddling the gap between deep pain and flickering hope.

The film follows the Lisbons after their youngest sister, Cecilia, twice attempts suicide, completing the act on her second try, all during party thrown by her terrified parents in hopes of cheering her up enough to keep her alive. The Lisbons, by and large, are suffocated by their »
