You're Killing Me: 8 lessons from horror's (mostly) horrible 2014

14 December 2014 9:31 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With a slew of major commercial (and often critical) hits like "The Conjuring," "Insidious: Chapter 2," "World War Z," "Warm Bodies" and the terrific "Evil Dead" remake, 2013 was a great year for horror. 2014? Eeh...let's just say the business of fright was a little weak. And it wasn't just the numbers, which were bad enough - only 4 horror films broke $50 million domestic this year as compared with last year's 9 - but the quality of the films themselves that disappointed. If we're being honest, the number of truly worthwhile mainstream horror films this year can probably be counted on one hand. So what did we learn from horror's (mostly) horrible 2014? Below are 8 lessons we'll be taking away. Lesson #1: Even in a down year, horror remains the most consistently profitable genre Judging strictly by budget-to-worldwide gross ratio, the only true flop this year was the bloated Aaron Eckhart reboot "I, Frankenstein, »

Gotham 1.9 Blog: Harvey Dent Review [Contains Spoilers]

14 December 2014 2:44 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Karen Gaviola

Writer: Ken Woodruff

Cast: Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, David Mazouz, Robin Lord Taylor, Sean Pertwee, Jada Pinkett Smith, Erin RichardsCamren Bicondova, Zabryna Guevara, Makenzie Leigh, John Doman and Nicholas D’Agosto.

Synopsis: Trying to close the Wayne murder case, a young Harvey Dent encourages Gordon to team up with Mayor James. Meanwhile, Penguin makes contact with Mooney’s secret weapon, Liza.

Verdict:

After last weeks Gotham decided to slow things down in terms of the shows (seemingly) central storyline revolving around the rise of the Penguin, episode 9 mixes up the format slightly with the introduction of a brand new character to proceedings.

Harvey Dent will no doubt be a name most commonly associated with Aaron Eckhart’s acclaimed portrayal of the character in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. However, this weeks Gotham attempted to re-introduce the future Bat-nemesis to audiences in the form of a »

Ranking all 9 of Christopher Nolan's movies from worst to best

8 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ranking Christopher Nolan's filmography is a daunting task: the conspicuous absence of any genuinely bad movies means that you're grading on a much narrower scale than would be the case with many directors.

But with Interstellar released worldwide today (November 7), a film which sees Nolan with a new cinematographer and a newly emotional focus, the time felt right to look back on all nine of his features to date.

Below is our definitive* ranking of Nolan's movies from worst through to best. (*Not in any way definitive, so much as subjective and based on the opinion of this writer alone.)

9. Insomnia (2002)

It's easy to forget that Nolan directed Insomnia at all, and even easier to forget that it was his third film. It feels like the work of a director still in search of a voice, whereas in fact Nolan had made the spectacularly confident, tonally distinctive indie Memento two years prior, »

Now he’ll make another live-action appearance, this time in the form of actor Nicholas D’Agosto.

In this version, young Harvey Dent/Two Face is described as… “Bright, charming and idealistic, Harvey Dent’s sole mission is to eradicate the crime and corruption that has poisoned Gotham. He is described as appealing, energetic and full of light and life, »

Production begins on Olympus Has Fallen 2

4 November 2014 11:02 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Olympus Has Fallen 2 is definitely happening, as production commences on London Has Fallen...

Production has finally begun on the sequel to last year's surprise action hit, Olympus Has Fallen. Entitled London Has Fallen, the new movie moves the bulk of the action to the UK, with the catalyst being the death of the British Prime Minister 'under mysterious circumstances'.

The funeral of said Pm attracts leaders and posh people from across the world, and that's when the plot to, er, kill them all kicks in. Oh, and the terrorists this time apparently want to take down 'every known landmark in the British capital'.

If they destory that nice coffee shop we got to whenever we head down to London, then we'll have the bastards ourselves.

Mind you, Gerard Butler's Secret Service agent, Mike Branning, is back on hand to save the day. Also returning from Olympus Has Fallen »

Despite having to find a new director at the last minute, Focus Features have pushed ahead (for better or for worse), and cameras have officially begun rolling on London has Fallen, a sequel to Olympus has Fallen, and the first synopsis for the film has been revealed.

So with that, London Has Fallen has started filming and Gerard Butler’s Secret Service Agent Mike Banning is set to return to save us all once again.

London Has Fallen Gets An Official Synopsis

4 November 2014 11:12 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Out of the two dueling White House takeover pics that vied for box office dominance in 2013, it’s safe to say that Olympus Has Fallen emerged victorious against White House Down (though there are some, myself included, who feel that the latter film was far superior). While White House Down disappointed at the box office, Olympus Has Fallen made more on a smaller budget and certainly did well enough to warrant a sequel, which kicked off production in London today.

Rather obviously titled London Has Fallen, the follow-up reunites stars Aaron Eckhart, Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett and Melissa Leo. This time around, Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Butler) and President of the United States Benjamin Asher (Eckhart) find themselves battling a terrorist threat in London.

Check out the official press release, which includes an updated synopsis for the pic. Then let us know, will you be lining up »

Filming Begins on London Has Fallen Starring Gerard Butler; First Synopsis Revealed

4 November 2014 10:31 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I'm still bitter that when it came to last year's "Battle of the Die Hard-in-the-White House" movies, the crown went to Olympus Has Fallen over the vastly superior White House Down.  But so it goes, and we will be treated to yet another installment of Gerard Butler's Secret Service Agent Mike Banning taking down baddies.  Millennium Films has sent out a press release announcing that filming has commenced on London Has Fallen, which sees Banning accompanying the U.S. President (Aaron Eckhart) and Speaker of the House (Morgan Freeman) to attend the funeral of the British prime minister.  The press release also includes the first official plot synopsis, and this is my favorite part: "a deadly plot to kill the world's most powerful leaders, devastate every known landmark in the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future."  All those unknown landmarks?  Totally safe. Hit the jump for the press release. »
