16 February 2017 8:05 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When it was released in 2011, Gareth Evans' Indonesian film The Raid: Redemption set the bar almost impossibly high for modern action movies. Now, WarParty and Xyz Films are looking to recapture the original movie's martial arts magic with a reimagining of The Raid that will star Frank Grillo (The Purge: Election Year, The Grey), be written and directed by Joe Carnahan (The Grey), and be executive produced by Evans himself.

Movie Review – Vengeance: A Love Story (2017)

14 February 2017 1:04 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vengeance: A Love Story, 2017.

Directed by Johnny Martin.

Starring Nicolas Cage, Don Johnson, Deborah Kara Unger, Anna Hutchison, Talitha Bateman.

Synopsis:

A gulf war veteran seeks vengeance against those who assaulted a single mother.

Vengeance opens by showing us the questionable judgement of Detective John Dromoor (Nicolas Cage) as a bust goes terribly wrong.  Drinking away his troubles, Dromoor meets Teena Maguire (Anna Hutchison) in the bar.  She’s introduced as a single mom who is a bit too flirtatious and easy with strangers.  After coming on to the Detective, he is all but smitten with her.  We see more character development with a Fourth of July party where Teena continues to act like a slut, embarrassing her twelve-year-old daughter Bethie Maguire (Talitha Bateman).  We see Teena heading home from the party with her daughter and taking a short cut through the woods (that’s a brilliant idea mom!).  This »

On the Fourth of July, twelve-year-old Bethie Maguire flags down Niagara Falls Police officer John Dromoor. Bethie’s mother, Teena, has been brutally raped by four meth heads, was left for dead, and is being nursed back to health by her mother, Agnes, a strong, fierce advocate for her daughter and granddaughter who has taken on the responsibility of caring for them. Bethie’s testimony, along with the evidence collected, should be enough to put the boys in jail for life. However, the parents of the »

Film Review: ‘Eloise’

3 February 2017 12:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Someday, someone will make a movie about all the warm and wonderful things that could happen on the site of a former insane asylum. Until that day, however, we will no doubt get a lot more like “Eloise,” in which absolutely nothing nice happens in such a place. The things that do happen all seem routinely reprised from prior horror movies, nearly all of them better than this one, a slick but thoroughly uninspired helming debut for veteran visual effects supervisor and second-unit director Robert Legato. Starring Chase Crawford and Eliza Dushku as the chief unfortunates trapped in a long-shuttered looney bin that malevolently “comes alive again,” this scare-deprived frightfest will primarily be watched and forgotten by genre fans in home formats after an eye-blink run in theaters.

The Eloise of the title isn’t a children’s-book heroine, but the name of an actual eastern Michigan mental institution that existed for 150 years, »

Sundance: Dave Bautista-Brittany Snow Thriller ‘Bushwick’ Sold to Rlj Entertainment

27 January 2017 5:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rlj Entertainment has bought U.S. theatrical rights to the Dave Bautista-Brittany Snow thriller “Bushwick” for at least $1 million following the film’s premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

The movie, directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott (“Cooties”), follows Snow’s character, who discovers that her Brooklyn neighborhood is under attack by black-clad soldiers. Bautista plays an ex-Marine corpsman, who reluctantly helps her fight for survival through a civil war as Texas attempts to secede from the United States of America.

Variety‘s Geoff Berkshire said in his Sundance review, “Even if the low-budget execution is uneven at times, there’s enough snap to the filmmaking, and enough raw power in the premise, to make for solid B-movie excitement. A surprisingly potent performance from professional wrestler (and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ co-star) Dave Bautista should add to the appeal for a young male audience.”

The actress, who is reprising her role as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker, told British Glamour that she’s learned a lot about the world of Bdsm since starring in the steamy series.

“Oh some of that stuff is just so beautiful!” she said of discovering new sex toys. “When we first started on Fifty Shades, that wasn’t a world I was privy to at all, and I soon found out there are all these different tiers. There are »

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Finale Review: The Miserable Mill

16 January 2017 5:31 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Maybe this show is not diverging from the books, after all. 

On Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Episode 7 and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Episode 8, the children got closer to the truth as they found themselves working in the Lucky Smells Lumber Mill. 

Now, I need to speak about the reveal that Will Arnett and Cobie Smulders were not actually Bertrand and Beatrice Baudelaire.

That floored me. The kids walking towards that yellow door definitely made me think we were getting to watch the reunion play out. 

However, the constant sense of dread that seeps from every single scene of the show should have sent alarm bells ringing as soon as it was "revealed" that they were alive. 

In the grand scheme of things, it made sense because it helped set up the plot at Prufrock Preparatory School for both the Baudelaires and the Quagmires. »

Dakota Johnson May Stop Doing Nude Scenes When Her ‘Boobs Start Sagging’

13 January 2017 8:50 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you’ve been counting down the days until Fifty Shades Darker hits theaters and have had Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik’s new song for the film, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” playing on repeat, you’ll be interested in this news. Dakota Johnson (a.k.a. Anastasia Steele) landed Vogue‘s February cover and talks about – what else – those nude scenes.

Since Fifty Shades of Grey debuted in 2015, she’s been a style star to watch on the red carpet. But one of the reasons her performance was so attention-grabbing was the lack of clothes she wore during the film. »

Netflix Releases Frightful New Teaser For A Series Of Unfortunate Events

2 January 2017 8:51 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Next week, Lemony Snicket fans finally get the chance to see if Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events lives up to their lofty expectations. While our full review is embargoed until Wednesday, we can tell you that you’re in for a visually arresting series, as highlighted in this newest teaser trailer.

The 30-second promo, which promptly features Patrick Warburton’s Snicket, warns viewers of the “distributed plots, villainous frightful deeds and an absurd amount of childhood endangerment” that are laced throughout this latest streaming-friendly program. “Do you really want to sit through every horrid episode,” Snicket asks? “Be a dear and look away.” Whether you heed that advice or not is up to you, but it does, once again, showcases the self-deprecating and highly self-aware dialogue and comedy found throughout the new Ya adaptation.

Starring Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith, K. Todd Freeman, Joan Cusack, Aasif Mandvi, »
