Thomas Jane, Billy Bob Thornton Square Off Against One Pissed Off Bear In New Grizzly Trailer!!

7 hours ago | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I absolutely love horror movies involving pissed off animals. Maybe it’s because we’re so used to loving them in general, that when a horror-ish film comes along that throws a big wrench into that, it makes for some fun entertainment. With that all being said, Saw V director David Hackl is returning behind the helm of the awesome looking Grizzly, which was written by J.R. Reher and Bunraku director Guy Moshe.  After checking out the newly released trailer, I’ve gotta say, it looks pretty great, heavy on gore and boasting an impressive lineup of really good actors. Hackl and co. already had me with just saying it was a killer bear movie, but  they had to throw The Mist‘s Thomas Jane, X-men‘s James Marsden, and Billy Bob Thornton into the mix, and well..badassery indeed folks. Thornton absolutely killed it as Lorne Malvo on season one of FX’s Fargo, »

The Judge, Starring Robert Downey Jr., Will Open The Toronto International Film Festival

25 July 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Organizers of this September’s Toronto International Film Festival have picked The Judge, a legal drama starring two famous Roberts (Downey Jr. and Duvall), as the festival’s opening night movie.

The Warner Bros. film, slated for release on Oct. 10, was one of the many high-profile entries from the festival lineup that was announced on Tuesday. When the first list of titles was announced without any film selected as the festival opener, there was speculation that a different film was being primed for that pole position. Perhaps the festival committee needed an extra few days to make sure the opening film was a worthy one, especially since Tiff announced that they only wanted to screen world premieres during the festival’s opening weekend this year.

Previously announced as one of Tiff’s Gala presentations, The Judge stars Robert Downey Jr. as Hank Palmer, a successful attorney who returns to his »

B-Horror with a great cast in the ‘Grizzly’ trailer

25 July 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Billy Bob Thornton starring in a B-movie creature feature should be enough for anyone to be sold, but now we have a trailer for Grizzly (formally known as Endangered and Red Machine) from Saw V director, David Hackl. The film follows two estranged brothers (James Marsden and Thomas Jane) and their girlfriends as they are hunted by a savage grizzly bear. The film doesn’t seem like it will transcend any monster movie tropes, but it looks like it might be some really bloody fun. This film may seem very similar to the 1976 film also called Grizzly, but nowhere does anyone seem to calling this new film a remake. The 1976 film itself is widely considered one of many late 70s era Jaws knockoffs, so we’re now in a time of knockoffs of knockoffs. Seriously though, this does look like it could make for a good time at the movies. »

David Dobkin's 'The Judge' Selected as Toronto Film Festival Opening Night Film

25 July 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I can't lie, I expected something more from the Toronto Film Festival when they didn't announce an opening night film with their lineup earlier this week. Now it turns out they announced the film, just not the fact it was going to serve as the opener, which easily leads us to believe they were hoping for something else but didn't get it. Announced just this morning, David Dobkin's The Judge starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall will serve as the fest's opening night film. In the film Downey plays big city lawyer Hank Palmer who returns to his childhood home where his estranged father, the town's judge (Duvall), is suspected of murder. He sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before.

A Mix of Movie Stars and Newcomers Land Their First Emmy Noms

23 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Billy Bob Thornton first read Noah Hawley’s “Fargo” pilot, the Oscar-winning actor says he didn’t give much thought to the fact that the unconventional, gritty thriller would air on TV.

“That line between TV and movies is practically gone, so I never thought, ‘I’m not sure if I want to get into a TV series or not.’ I’d already been thinking about it because TV is such a great place,” he says.

Just as comedy and drama are melting into each other and viewers make almost no distinction about where they watch, actors are approaching their roles in a medium-agnostic way, finding that some of the best parts aren’t on the bigscreen.

“Generally speaking, the best actors will follow the best writers,” says FX president John Landgraf, whose network aired “Fargo.” “Almost anywhere there is a writer of great note and great talent in any medium, »

Fargo Season 2: Where, When, and What Else We Know

22 July 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

On the heels of FX's renewal announcement for Fargo, the show's creator, Noah Hawley, and executive producer Warren Littlefield appeared before reporters during the Summer TCA and spilled some details about the upcoming second season. The duo confirmed that the new season will feature a new crime story with (mostly) new characters and cited the movies Fargo (obviously), Miller's Crossing, and The Man Who Wasn't There as influences. They also gave an absurd amount of detail about whom we'll meet, plus where and when the season will take place. Here's everything we know about the next season, which Hawley referred to as "a 10-hour movie." It will be set in 1979 in Luverne, Mn; Sioux Falls, Sd; and, of course, Fargo, Nd. Hawley and Littlefield mentioned that it was no accident that there were a lot of references to Sioux Falls in the first season, and the second season will explore those areas. »
