Let me begin this review by stating this is most-definitely not your typical horror fare; something audiences will realise a mere five minutes into this raucous, sure-to-be-cult-hit, movie. Written and directed by J.T. Petty, who also penned the graphic novel on which this is based, Hellbenders is a genre-bending horror comedy that is most akin to Don Coscarelli’s recent movie John Dies at the End. If I had to narrow the analogy down I’d say Hellbenders is best described as The Exorcist meets Ghostbusters by way of Don Coscarelli and [early] Kevin Smith…
Sound interesting? Then go out and buy it. Trust me. The rest of you? Let me try and convince you why you should spend your hard-earned cash on this little indie horror that could. »

Cate McCall (Kate Beckinsale) was once a hotshot lawyer before she put an innocent man away thinking him guilty. Now, she is a recovering alcoholic and on probation and must take on the appeal of a woman wrongly committed of murder so she can win back custody of her daughter and be reinstated to the bar. But can she trust herself to know who is innocent and who is guilty in this case? Can she be the lawyer she once was? Or will it all end in disaster with her falling off the wagon again once and for all?
The Trials of Cate McCall is a courtroom drama which has a lot going on. Lots of little stories lines all surrounding Cate McCall’s »

Yesterday the Academy sent out a press release announcing 271 individuals who have been invited to join their hallowed ranks. This happens each and every year and is something very nice to see. I always like finding out which members of the industry are invited to join The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. This year, with 271 individuals seen fit for acceptance into their ranks, I sort of wonder if they’ll be able to impact voting in some way and change who and what are nominated for Oscars. You can see the full list of who’s been invited to join at the end of this piece, but a number of names stand out to me and got me thinking about this. Who are some of the folks on the invite list? Well, they include the likes of Paul Dano, Michael Fassbender, Clark Gregg, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lupita Nyong’o, »

The voting body that makes up the Academy of Motion Picture Arts in Sciences announced the newest slate of members it has invited to join the prestigious group, who, among other things, are the people responsible for determining Academy Award nominees and winners.
Each year, the Academy gets its share of flack around awards season when the hip, indie flicks get shut out of traditional categories with many lamenting the so-called “boys club” and “old white men” that make up the majority of the membership body. The Academy certainly looks to be freshening up its image with the latest crop of member inductees who are younger and more diverse than seemingly ever.
New Academy members cover a multitude of categories including actors, directors, editors, musicians and composers, casting directors, producers, documentarians, and more groups that cover all branches of the awards categories.
Making the cut this year are recent nominees and winners Lupita Nyong’o, »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced its list of actors, filmmakers, and others involved in the moviemaking industry that have been invited to join the Academy’s membership. 271 artists made the cut this year, ranging from recent winners and nominees like Lupita Nyong’o and Michael Fassbender to more eclectic choices like Rob Riggle, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Josh Hutcherson, and even Jason Statham. Chris Rock also finally gets a ballot years after hosting the ceremony, and Clark Gregg will bring some Marvel pedigree into the fold. On the filmmaking side, brothers Mark and Jay Duplass, David Gordon Green, Denis Villeneuve, and Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Secret Life of Bees) join the directors branch, while Dp Sean Bobbitt (12 Years a Slave) has been added to the cinematographers group. Eddie Vedder and Pharrell Williams (sans hat) are also now Academy members should they accept their invitations. The full list is still disappointingly short on females, »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is extending invitations to join the organization to 271 artists and executives who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures.
Those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy’s membership in 2014.
“This year’s class of invitees represents some of the most talented, creative and passionate filmmakers working in our industry today,” said Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “Their contributions to film have entertained audiences around the world, and we are proud to welcome them to the Academy.”
The 2014 invitees are:

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

Ben Foster is one of my favorite actors that keeps popping up in the strangest of places, from superhero movies, to re-imagined Westerns, to military thrillers. While he's set to lead Stephen Frears' Untitled Lance Armstrong Biopic in the lead role, not much is known about his part in Duncan Jones' upcoming Warcraft adaptation. Make that, not much was known, since Foster recently spilled the magic beans about the character he'd be playing in the Mmorpg-turned-feature film. For those of you who'd rather avoid potential spoilers, we'll keep that news after the jump. Also starring Paula Patton, Travis Fimmel, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Daniel Wu, and Clancy Brown, Warcraft opens in 2D and 3D on March 11, 2016. When speaking to IGN recently, Foster had the following to say about his role in Warcraft: "The character in Warcraft that I play is named Medivh. He's a mage, »

Ben Foster has been revealing all about his role in Duncan Jones’ Warcraft. The incredibly talented actor’s career features a wide range of film genres, having featured in films as diverse as Get Over It, Alpha Dog, 3:10 To Yuma, 30 Days Of Night and Lone Survivor. Whilst talking to IGN he had the following to say about his latest character:
“The character in Warcraft that I play is named Medivh. He’s a mage, which is essentially a sorcerer. He came up in a time protecting an area, and the way he protected this area was through magic. As peace returned to this land he took a break. He hung up his staff, so to speak, or let his guns get dusty. We meet him as his friends are returning asking for his help in a battle.”
The star also clarified that his character is not one of the many performance-capture characters:
