‘American Horror Story: Hotel’: First Look at Lady Gaga’s Countess and New Characters

26 August 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel” will open for business on Oct. 7, and as check-in time approaches, new details are starting to emerge about the many twisted characters who inhabit Ryan Murphy’s latest macabre playground.

Entertainment Weekly’s “Hotel” cover story sheds a little more light on Lady Gaga’s mysterious Countess, previously described by Murphy as a bisexual “wealthy social doyenne” who is “consumed with art and fashion and people, and she has a nefarious plan that is revealed in the first episode.”

According to EW, Gaga’s Countess — who owns the titular Hotel Cortez — sustains herself with a nutritious diet of sex and blood, but Murphy hesitates to call her (or her lovers, Matt Bomer’s Donovan and Finn Wittrock’s Tristan) vampires… “I prefer the term ‘ancient blood virus,'” he says. “It’s not vampires. It’s really a form of hemophilia in a way. »

Gabriel Bateman Lands Lead In James Wan-Produced Lights Out

17 June 2015 8:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James Wan may have moved from blood-curdling frighteners to studio blockbusters with the runaway success of Furious 7, but he’s still keeping his fingers on the pulse with the genre, producing another supernatural home-invasion horror in the spirit of Insidious and The Conjuring. Now, young up-and-comer Gabriel Bateman has landed a lead role in said pic, which is titled Lights Out.

David F. Sandberg is directing the film, a feature adaptation of his (terrifying) 2013 short. Lawrence Grey and Eric A. Heisserer are attached as producers, with Heisserer scripting an expansion of Sandberg’s story. Heisserer’s past scripting credits include The Thing, Final Destination 5 and Hours (which he also directed).

In Lights Out, Bateman will play the young son in a family haunted by a supernatural entity that can only be seen in the dark. With everyone at risk, one family member is forced to step up and »

Survivor Review

5 June 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

 Spy thrillers are a dime a dozen at the minute, and if you're going to set out to make a movie that hinges on it's ability to deliver an engaging and action packed story in such a crowded genre, then you're going to have to start with a script that is smart, polished and fresh. Unfortunately Survivor is none of those things. A cast including  Pierce Brosnan, Milla Jovovich, Dylan McDermott and Robert Forster are squandered in this flat, cliched and needlessly contrived tale of assassination, terrorism and international politics. Jovovich stars as Kate Abbott, a foreign intelligence officer in London who ends up framed for a terrorist attack, forcing her to go on the run and in the process try to clear her name and take her life back. As if that wasn't enough, Kate has information about an impending attack that only she can prevent, and all the »

Survivor movie review: security theater

4 June 2015 9:19 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

If there’s a thriller to be found in international travel regulations, this is not it. Makes a mockery of the unsung heroes it’s meant to celebrate. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

If there’s a thriller to be forged out of the bureaucracy of international travel regulations, Survivor is not it. Not even from the guy — James McTeigue — who brought us V for Vendetta.

Not even from Milla Jovovich (The Three Musketeers, Stone). She’s a badass security consultant — that’s a thing, it seems — riding a desk at the U.S. embassy in London, and she is on the lookout for suspicious physician and pharmaceutical types trying to travel to the United States, because bombs can be made from stuff you find in the Or . I’m sure that’s true… »

Survivor review: Pierce Brosnan and Milla Jovovich play cat and mouse

4 June 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: James McTeigue; Screenwriter: Philip Shelby; Starring: Milla Jovovich, Pierce Brosnan, Dylan McDermott, Robert Forster, Angela Bassett, Frances de la Tour, James D'Arcy; Running time: 96 mins; Certificate: 12A

There's little to enjoy about this daft spy thriller beyond the sight of Pierce Brosnan looking vaguely like a Spanish pimp when he wears a pencil-thin moustache as a disguise. Survivor is played straight, but laden with laughs that are entirely unintentional and make you feel somewhat sorry for the impressive cast.

You can vaguely understand why actors of the calibre of Brosnan, Milla Jovovich, Dylan McDermott, Robert Forster, Angela Bassett, Frances de la Tour and James D'Arcy signed up to the project. After all, the basic premise is an intriguing one, involving the capture of an American soldier in the Middle East leading to severe repercussions in London.

Film Review: ‘Survivor’

27 May 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Milla Jovovich plays a falsely accused Foreign Service Officer who works to thwart a terrorist plot as she runs from the authorities in “Survivor,” a sturdy wrong-woman thriller that feels grotesque in its citations of 9/11 and other intimations of real-world import, but also steals a few good moves from “North by Northwest” and “The Fugitive” for a solid middle section. A generic title and low buzz factor are hurdles for this day-and-date release, a meat-and-potatoes offering from helmer James McTeigue (“V for Vendetta,” “The Raven”).

The prologue, in which two Americans in Afghanistan are captured after a helicopter crash, gets the proceedings off to an unpromising start; the poorly staged action and a lack of background density give off the vibe of a videogame cut scene. One of the men is identified as a potential bargaining chip, and his fellow soldier is quickly immolated.

Survivor Review

26 May 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

During a more than 60-year acting career, Michael Caine has had a lot of highs and lows. One of his most embarrassing moments was a supporting role in the reviled sequel Jaws: The Revenge – a film that came out the same year he picked up an Academy Award for Hannah and Her Sisters. In one of the actor’s most enduring interview quotes, Caine said of the sequel that he had never seen the film. “By all accounts, it is terrible,” he said. “However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific.”

Caine’s droll attempt at transparency routinely came back into this reviewer’s mind during Survivor, a film that is cluttered with action movie clichés and may be most fondly remembered by its principal cast for helping them renovate their homes. Despite the presence of director James McTeigue (V For Vendetta) and thriller author »

25 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 2000s

13 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and, erm, Kangaroo Jack: they all nabbed the box office top spot last decade...

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.

The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.

Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?
