11 September 2017 11:24 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Featuring arguably the most beloved zombie ever put to film, George A. Romero's Day of the Dead is a seminal standout in the horror genre that has grown a diehard fanbase in the thirty-plus years since its release. New takes on Romero's groundbreaking 1985 film were featured in 2005's Day of the Dead 2: Contagium and 2008's Day of the Dead, and now Saban Films has acquired the Us rights to Millennium Media's new Day of the Dead reimagining, with a release expected late this year:

Press Release: Toronto – September 9, 2017 – Saban Films has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to a slate of films from Avi Lerner’s Millennium Media.

Otd: Who's "Bad"?

31 August 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

on this day (August 31st) in history as it relates to showbiz

1897 Thomas Edison patents his movie camera the "kinetograph"

1987 Michael Jackson's video "Bad" directed by none other than the master Martin Scorsese premieres. It is 18 minutes long (!) because Martin Scorsese never saw a lengthy running time that didn't make him salivate. The short gave Wesley Snipes one of his earliest gigs prompting the short's switch from black and white to color as Wesley riles Michael up with a "you ain't bad!" burn.

17 films to catch at Horror Channel FrightFest 2017

21 August 2017 3:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Den Of Geek Aug 22, 2017

Horror Channel FrightFest takes place in London this weekend. Here's our pick of films to look out for...

Summer’s almost over and what better way to welcome in the spooky season than by hiding from the heat in a darkened room, with five days of wall-to-wall horror? Yep, it’s August Bank Holiday and that means the 18th annual London Horror Channel FrightFest is upon us. For some, this is a familiar pilgrimage. Veterans will be used to bloodshot eyes, numbness in the spine, a lack of nutrition and an acute anxiousness every time there’s a loud noise. For others, it may be their first visit and these are things to look forward to. Either way, FrightFest promises probably the biggest, purest, uncut dose of horror you can endure without going insane, complete with special guests, world premieres, live events and at least a couple of parties. »

Musician to Movie Star: In the Footsteps of Elvis

19 August 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the recent 40th anniversary of the death of Elvis, here is a look at those music stars who made a transition to film. Some were more successful than others. Some made a fleeting crossover and some are best forgotten as far as their film careers went…

In terms of the King, Elvis has an undoubtedly huge legacy as far as music goes. His influence as far as attitude, showmanship and indeed the music itself is still being felt. He was in that bracket of the most influential musical acts of his era alongside the Beatles. However his impact on film was also important. He showed that a cultural phenomenon could operate over two platforms.

Beginning in 1956 with Love Me Tender, Elvis would go onto make over 30 films until 1969. A few more iconic than others of course, such as Jailhouse Rock, Viva Las Vegas and some more interesting attempts to »

Review: Final Recall (2017)

18 August 2017 11:40 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

After a brief opening scene in space where an incident affects two astronauts, Final Recall begins on familiar ground with a cabin in the woods style horror, as five friends take a vacation. With no preconceptions regarding the dangers of snooping, they find themselves stumbling into trouble with a local woodlander called Hunter (Wesley Snipes), whom they only just manage to avoid. Retreating to the safety of their cabin, it is not long before a mysterious storm starts to appear in the sky. It’s going to be a long night and they will soon realise there are worse things to fear in the woods.

Final Recall has some interesting ideas but with the film constantly changing, it’s difficult to know what they are trying to achieve. The first part of the film works well as a horror, with plenty of tension building between the group and Hunter due to their own naivety. »

Our latest round-up of horror and genre DVDs and Blu-rays...

So: with season two of Stranger Things fast approaching, a remake of Stephen King’s It set to mildly trouble a whole new generation and, erm, the on-going threat of nuclear armageddon, it seems everything eighties is 'in' at the moment. And, you know what? That surely must include Dennis Quaid, right? Well, maybe not, unless you count this year’s canine reincarnation/multiple hound-homicide horror A Dog’s Purpose, which we don’t in these parts. Anyway, Quaid’s back in Blu-ray form with the recent repackaging of his 1984 quirky fantasy thriller Dreamscape.

Nicely sandwiched between the release of Jaws 3-D and Enemy Mine, surely two of the most Quaidessential (sorry) films of the decade, Dreamscape sees our hero take on the mantle of a cheaper Harrison Ford, burdened with psychic powers that he must use »

Wesley Snipes Says He Stole Prince's Role in Michael Jackson's "Bad" Video

10 August 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In an interview Wednesday on TBS' Conan, Wesley Snipes revealed that he beat out Prince for a role in Michael Jackson's short film "Bad." 

"Me and Prince were auditioning together, and I blew Prince out of the water," Snipes explained. "Michael had told Prince that he had the role, and then he met me."

Prince, on the other hand, did not seem to recall it going down the same way. In a 1997 interview with VH1, the icon stated, "The first line in that song is, 'Your butt is mine,' so I was saying, 'Who »

Beauty vs Beast: Cowgirl's Hall of Fame

7 August 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here with this week's "Beauty vs Beast." On this day in 1911 was born the writer-director Nicholas Ray, whose movies have come to seem fairly ahead of their time. His biggest success would of course be 1955's Rebel Without a Cause (his only Oscar nomination was for that film's script) but several of his other works have grown in reputation over the decades, and we're here to look at maybe the weirdest of them all - 1954's technicolor acid-western Johnny Guitar. (See Also: Tfe's "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" entry for this movie.)

Guitar stars Joan Crawford as the "railroad tramp" Vienna, who runs a saloon and is drawn to bad men, and her cowgirl nemesis Emma Small, played by an enthusiastically hateful Mercedes McCambridge. The actresses apparently tore it up behind the scenes (everybody who's spoken of the filming of this film makes it sound like »

Film Review: ‘Armed Response’

3 August 2017 7:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Armed Response” has less story than your average first-person shooter video game — and far fewer moments of exciting action or nerve-wracking suspense as well. Though headlined by Wesley Snipes, John Stockwell’s bland B-movie relegates its biggest star to second-banana status, which isn’t even the most severe problem plaguing this story about a group of military operatives sent to investigate a covert facility that’s gone mysterious offline. Sketchily plotted and sluggishly executed, this technophobic WWE Studios production is even more generic than its title and tagline (“No Retreat. No Mercy”), and is destined for a quick demise in theaters, with likely better luck on demand.

After a brief prologue in which anonymous grunts are slaughtered by an off-screen assailant while stationed at the Temple (a military compound run by advanced artificial intelligence that can flawlessly interrogate prisoners), Special Forces soldier Isaac (Snipes) recruits the system’s designer, Gabriel (Dace Annable), to join him on a »

'Armed Response': Film Review

2 August 2017 9:29 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

A team of commandos tries to secure a secret site housing a lie-detecting supercomputer in John Stockwell's Armed Response, but that's far from the whole picture. First-timer Matt Savelloni's, er, ambitious screenplay aims to pivot from John Carpenter-style under-siege thrills to a weird sort of supernatural-vengeance horror. But it fails on these and several other fronts, making an inauspicious choice for Wesley Snipes' first top-billed theatrical release since he got out of prison in 2013. The picture's idiocy might have been predicted from the press release announcing it as the first joint venture between geriatric sleaze-rocker Gene Simmons and the »

Exclusive: WWE Superstar Seth Rollins on his new movie Armed Response and his WrestleMania goals

2 August 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Josh Wilding

Seth Rollins is one of the biggest WWE Superstars today. A two-time world champion, he’s headlined countless Pay-Per-Views and is responsible for one of the most memorable WrestleMania moments of all-time when he cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Brock Lesnar. He’s also the cover star of the upcoming WWE 2K18 video game and is now set to take on his first major big screen role in WWE Studios’ upcoming Armed Response.

In the movie, a team of special forces soldiers approach the designer of a high-tech military compound to investigate the disappearance of another team guarding the facility. The compound, known professionally as a Temple, is an artificial intelligence powered facility designed for interrogating high-level prisoners. Upon entering the Temple, the soldiers find the team horrifically slaughtered but no evidence as to who is responsible.

Almost immediately, the crew begins to »

Movie Review – Boyka: Undisputed (2016)

2 August 2017 3:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Boyka: Undisputed, 2016.

Directed by Todor Chapkanov.

Starring Scott Adkins, Teodora Duhovnikova, Martyn Ford, Brahim Achabbakhe, Emilien De Falco, Alon Aboutboul, Julian Vergov, and Valentin Ganev.

Synopsis:

In the fourth installment of the fighting franchise, Boyka is shooting for the big leagues when an accidental death in the ring makes him question everything he stands for.

As far as odd film franchises go, the Undisputed series is right up there. It’s not so much the popularity they’ve achieved. That itself has been well warranted from the second film onwards. It’s more the genesis of the franchise. That moment where someone decided that 2002’s largely forgotten prison drama starring Ving Rhames and Wesley Snipes (directed by veteran Walter Hill) should be turned into a martial arts mayhem franchise. Moving from prison boxing to mixed martial arts. Somehow it was figured it would prove popular. In the video market at least, »

Final Recall, 2017.

Directed by Mauro Borrelli.

Starring Wesley Snipes, R.J. Mitte, Jedidiah Goodacre, Laura Bilgeri, Niko Pepaj, and Hannah Rose Nay.

A number of them are abducted by the alien spaceship hovering over the forest. Annie and Charlie survive the mass-abduction and must rely on an eccentric and dangerous hunter who seems to have special knowledge of the attack. “The Hunter” goes on explaining that this day has been prophesized for years and extra-terrestrials have been guiding Earth’s evolution in preparation for their ultimate takeover.

Poor old Wesley Snipes. He’s had a tough time of it in the last decade. He never quite managed to capitalise fully on the success of the first two Blade films. He’d become bankable up to that point, »
