Review: The Walking Deceased

1 hour ago | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I’ve always subscribed to the idea that film parodies only work when they’re played straight. When the situation is what brings the laughs, instead of continual references and camera winks, so to speak. Films like the Scary Movie or A Haunted House series never quite did the trick, with turning cliche-filled parts of the films they were poking fun into just a series silly jokes, with no staying power, once the scene was over. What made films like Airplane, The Naked Gun and even Top Secret! or Get Smart work so well, is how straight they were played, almost as if the viewer was the only one In on the joke, making each gag work tremendously well. The Tim Ogletree-written/Scott Dow-directed parody on all things zombie, The Walking Deceased, unfortunately falls into the former category, relying on over the top and continual references to the »

Mark Ruffalo Talks About the Magic of Now You See Me: The Second Act

12 April 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I had fun with Now You See Me. It wasn't an all time classic, but I'm a sucker for pretty much any heist movie and felt like it hit the spot well enough. The cast was great and most of them will be returning for Now You See Me: The Second Act, so I'll be more than willing to check that one out as well (especially now that Lizzy Caplan is in the fold). Steve recently caught up with star Mark Ruffalo at the junket for Avengers: Age of Ultron and was able to speak with him briefly about the sequel. While the first film focussed on a lot of big Vegas-style magic, Now You See Me: The Second Act will feature a wider variety of tricks. Check out their conversation and some quotes below. Also, look for the full Ruffalo interview from which this was culled to be hitting soon. »

True Detective Season 2 Trailer: 10 Things You Need To Know

11 April 2015 6:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

It would seem that the light is winning. Whilst the likes of Mad Men are coming to an end, Breaking Bad has already shuffled off of its mortal coil and everything else seems to be migrating to Netflix, there’s still one shining beacon of brilliance on TV: True Detective. The first season of Nic Pizzolatto’s disturbing, existential crime drama was a surprise hit, the relatively unknown writer teaming with director Cary Fukunaga to coax some career-best performances out of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

With its focus on nihilistic philosophy and in-depth character studies – along with several murders committed by a cosmic horror-worshipping cult – the first season of True Detective accrued so many fans over the course of its eight episode run that HBO’s online service crashed thanks to the number of people tuning in for the finale. A similar amount of insane, sudden joy accompanied »

After countless casting rumors and over a year of waiting, it’s finally here: the first trailer for True Detective Season 2. The series, created by Nic Pizzolatto, was one of the biggest shows of 2014 when it premiered last year, garnering multiple Emmy nominations, including ones for its two leads, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

True Detective Season 2 To Include Eyes Wide Shut-Style Orgy?

19 March 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Filming on season 2 of True Detective is in full swing right now, with last month delivering us a gallery of snaps taken from the show’s Los Angeles locations. Besides those visual updates, one of the series’ newest additions, Vince Vaughn, spoke to Playboy recently and emphasized that this sophomore season intends to keep the richly drawn characters and strong material which made the first season a success, but eschew the story and cast. Most of this was already public knowledge, but it was still encouraging to hear Vaughn also make mention of the differences between the seasons.

One colossal difference may be the inclusion of what The Hollywood Reporter terms a “deliriously vast, Eyes Wide Shut-caliber orgy sequence involving dozens of naked bodies.” The trade dropped that titillating tidbit in a news post concerning the addition of yet more cast members; two famous adult film industry starlets: Amia Miley and Peta Jensen. »

Fire Burns Forever In First Teaser And Poster For The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

18 March 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lionsgate isn’t taking any chances when it comes to the final part of Katniss Everdeen’s saga. While The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is still several months away from release, the studio is rolling out stage one of its marketing campaign. In the spirit of the first three movies, a one-sheet poster outlining the triumphant Mockingjay has arrived online, along with a cheeky teaser trailer.

Turning to this brand new poster, the final stage of Katniss’ journey to bring down The Capitol and its devious leader President Snow is summed up by the tagline “The Fire Will Burn Forever.” Running along the central image of the burning Mockingjay pin, finally breaking free, it ties in to the message of Part 1: “If we burn, you burn with us.”

Similarly, the teaser trailer focuses its efforts on the same motif, albeit while offering little new material. While we can »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay . Part 2 Motion Poster Online

18 March 2015 7:07 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The Hunger Games franchise has a history of motion posters – not surprising given the flaming bird logo that has represented the films for the past few years. With the final chapter, Mockingjay – Part 2 on its way, there’s a film series wrap-up underscoring the new image, which sees the Mockingjay breaking free of his circular barrier like a golden, feathery Freddie Mercury.Following on from the first Mockingjay, the second part of the story finds Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and the rebels making the final push against Donald Sutherland's scheming President Snow and the Capitol, with lives on the line and sacrifices to be made. The new movie should boost the action quotient as the bigger beats are to be found lurking towards the end of Suzanne Collins’ third tome. With Francis Lawrence again directing and Lawrence joined on screen by Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Julianne Moore, Sam Claflin, Elizabeth Banks, »
