Ten Best: Movies to get excited for in the second half of 2014

26 July 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

2014 has already seen some very good films released, with the likes of Boyhood, The Fault in Our Stars, X-Men: Days of Future Past and others doing great business and turning heads in the process. The remainder of 2014 will also see a large number of film releases, and some of those are highly intriguing. Let’s take a look at ten of the films that I, personally, am excited for in the second half of 2014.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Director, James Gunn, tasselled my hair playfully when he put a little independent film named “Super” on the table in 2010, an underrated Rainn Wilson fronted comedy drama about a guy who thinks that god is telling him to fight crime. When I heard that Gunn was bringing his sense of humour and action to Guardians of the Galaxy my interest hit a high note. With a cast including the enjoyable everyman Chris Pratt »

Once again, we have the fantastic, the indomitable, the flying-fingered Jeri Jacqui! on the transcripts!

Some good stuff from yesterday. Since I was on the Maze Runner set (report here), I've read the book and have been itching to see what Wes Ball made of it. They showed it to some fans earlier in the week and it got some good twitter buzz.

Let's check out what Fox offered yesterday at Sdcc!

Maze Runner

Wes Ball (director)

James Dashner (author)

Will Poulter - Gally

Kaya Scodelario - Teresa

Dylan O’Brien - Thomas

Ralph Garman  (Mod): Please welcome director Wes Ball, author James Dashner, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario and Dylan O’Brien. Dylan, as Thomas, an actor tends to want to use his environment etc. and you have none of those advantages with this character.

Dylan: Yes, there isn’t that much to go off of. Taking it in »

20th Century Fox took control of Hall H for two hours on Friday to unveil some of their upcoming films. The big surprise? No talk of (or footage shown from) next summer’s Fantastic Four or of X-Men: Apocalypse. But there were plenty of other highlights:

Venice Film Festival Venice Days Section Unveils Diverse Lineup

22 July 2014 5:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — The Venice Film Festival’s independently run Venice Days, modeled on Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, has unveiled its lineup of 14 pics unspooling in the official selection which sees known names screening alongside emerging helmers, including U.S. writer-director Shawn Christensen whose “Before I Disappear” (pictured) is making its international bow.

As previously announced, the out-of-competition opener is prolific South Korean auteur Kim Ki-duk’s multiple murder thriller “One On One,” about the brutal rape and murder of a schoolgirl, which is launching internationally from the Lido after being released in South Korea.

The closer, also not competing, is “Messi,” a docu-feature portrait of hot Argentine soccer player Leo Messi, helmed by Spain’s Alex De La Iglesia and written by Jorge Valdano, a former prominent member of the Argentine team who went on to become a sports journalist as well as a manager and sports director of Spain’s Real Madrid club. »

10 Celebrity Endorsed Video Games That Should Offend You

18 July 2014 2:44 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Attaching the name of a celebrity to a video game title is never a good thing. To most experienced gamers, that is simply a warning that the game might be something they would want to avoid. And they would be right to do it. Statistically speaking, there is a pretty good chance that whatever video game it might be is just a rushed, buggy and unfinished attempt to cash in on the name power of celebs who are more than willing to plaster their face all over the game in exchange for a big, fat paycheck.

The sad thing is that it works. Way too many people buy games because they see their favourite actor, athlete or musician on the cover as if they were actually involved in making the game – apart from signing a contract and then going to the bank. Even Mike Tyson was recently filmed playing »

Fright Exclusive Interview With Aftermath/The Wire Star Andre Royo!

17 July 2014 7:19 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

You can tell a lot about an actor by the roles they choose. While some are comfortable playing it easy and tackling the same kind of films repeatedly, Andre Royo definitely sets himself apart from that approach. Making waves as Reginald “Bubble” Cousins in by far one of the greatest shows of all time, The Wire, Royo showed viewers that he could tackle gritty. While a lot of people would ride that wave into the comfort zone, Royo has always pushed himself, with roles in varying types and genres of films, such as Super, The Collection, The Spectacular Now and beginning July 18th, Aftermath. Royo was nice enough to talk to Icons of Fright regarding Aftermath, as well as various other things. Read on!

Aftermath is such a great film, it’s very dark, gloomy, and scary,  how did your involvement come about?
