12 expensive and eccentric modern Hollywood movies

25 July 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 26, 2016

They cost millions and they’re very, very odd. We take a look at 12 expensive and eccentric Hollywood films from the past 40 years...

The risk-averse nature of filmmaking means that the world’s more maverick and outrageous writers and directors have to make do with relatively low budgets. Nicolas Winding Refn drenched the screen in all kinds of sordid, violent and startling imagery in such films as Only God Forgives and this year’s The Neon Demon, but the combined budget of those probably didn’t even match the catering budget for something like Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Every so often, though, a truly bonkers film slips through the Hollywood studio system - often by accident. From horror sequels to original sci-fi adventures, here are 12 incredibly expensive and gloriously eccentric Hollywood movies from the past 40 years.

The Exorcist II (1977)

Budget: $14 million

Like most films made for purely financial reasons, »

Flatliners set pics: Remake of the 1990 movie about medical students who take themselves to the brink of death appear online

The Flatliners set pics show Diego Luna and Nina Dobrev shooting.

It has only just started shooting, but there are already some Flatliners set pics hitting the net. Based on the 1990 movie of the same name which starred Kiefer Sutherland and Julia Roberts, Flatliners revolves around a group of medical students who begin to explore the realm of near death experiences, hoping for insights.

The original was directed by Joel Schumacher, though the in-production remake is being helmed by Niels Arden Oplev, the filmmaker responsible for the original version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo starring Noomi Rapace.

Ben Ripley, who wrote Source Code, is penning the screenplay for the redo.

Here’s the plot synopsis for the original.

Return to Santa Carla, California with ‘The Lost Boys’ Sequel Comic

19 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It’s a little surprising we haven’t heard about a remake of The Lost Boys yet. We’ve seen two direct-to-dvd sequels to the film (both starring Corey Feldman), but Joel Schumacher‘s vampire film is certainly well known enough to make someone see dollar signs in a potential update. Before that inevitable day comes, Vertigo Comics is bringing us […]

DVD Review – Forsaken (2016)

18 July 2016 10:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Forsaken, 2016

Directed by Jon Cassar.

Starring Kiefer Sutherland, Donald Sutherland, Demi Moore, Michael Wincott, Greg Ellis and Brian Cox.

Synopsis:

In the Old West, former Civil War-veteran John Henry returns to his frontier hometown where he must repair a fractious relationship with his Reverend father, and face the demons of his past when a gang of outlaws threaten the community…

Not just a throwback to the Western of old, Forsaken is a film born of historical connections. Directed by Jon Cassar, who worked with Kiefer Sutherland on the series that made him iconic, 24, and starring Kiefer alongside his legendary father Donald Sutherland, something they’ve only briefly done before – sharing screen time in the little known Max Dugan Returns in the early 80’s and appearing not together in Joel Schumacher’s A Time to Kill in 1996. For them, the appeal was appearing not just together but as father and son on screen, »

Vertigo to publish six-issue sequel to The Lost Boys

18 July 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vertigo has announced that it is set to publish a six-issue limited series sequel to Joel Schumacher’s 1987 cult classic The Lost Boys from the creative team of Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash), Scott Godlewski & Patricia Mulvihill (The Dark & The Bloody) and Tony Moore (Shade).

“I saw The Lost Boys at a formative time in my life, when a VHS, a Vcr and a summer afternoon were a perfect escape into a crazy world of biker vampires with mullets and monster-fighting hippy grandpas,” Seeley tells Variety. “The Lost Boys was one of my entry points into the horror genre, and I’ve been fascinated ever since. Getting the chance to write a sequel to the film, featuring the original characters, and getting to work with Scott, Patricia and Tony is truly a high point in my comic book-making career.”

'The Lost Boys' is, hopefully, getting the (comic-book) sequel it deserves

15 July 2016 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Lost Boys was a landmark of ‘80s horror, released at a time when the two Coreys were forces to be reckoned with at the box office and big hair was the name of the game. Despite bringing in $32 million at the box office on a budget of $8.5 million, a sequel didn’t emerge until 2008, when the direct-to-dvd followup The Lost Boys: The Tribe (starring original cast member Corey Feldman, with a cameo by the late Corey Haim) was released to withering reviews but impressive numbers, with nearly $6 million in sales for Warner Premiere. That was followed by 2010’s The Lost Boys: The Thirst, also starring Feldman. Here’s the thing: I doubt many fans of the first movie consider the two direct-to-dvd followups to be worthy successors to the Joel Schumacher-directed original, which was critically well-received at the time and remains a beloved title to this day.

Newswire: The Lost Boys gets another sequel, this one in comic form

15 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

How do you make a sequel to a movie about teenagers staying eternally young and perfect, when the actual, corporeal stars of the film demonstrably (and, in a few cases, tragically) have not? If the movie in question is The Lost Boys, the answer is to hop mediums, apparently, over to the gentle, age-forgiving world of comics. That’s per Variety, which is reporting that Joel Schumacher’s 1987 film—which centers on a young man trying to prevent his brother from getting seduced into undeath by local blood-drinking bad boy Kiefer Sutherland—is getting the ol’ comic book sequel treatment.

The new Lost Boys—not, repeat, not to be confused with Alan Moore’s Lost Girls, lest any number of ’80s nostalgics get accidentally placed on an FBI watch list—is being handled by D.C.’s Vertigo imprint. The miniseries will reunite brothers Michael and Sam Emerson (originally ...

The Lost Boys Is Getting a Comic Book Sequel

14 July 2016 4:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Truth, justice and the American way prevail! It seems we're getting a true Lost Boys 2, only in the form of a comic. 30 years removed from the release of the original cult classic, this is perhaps the only way to go, especially since one of the main stars has long since drifted into the chilly night air of Santa Carla. The Lost Boys sequel comic will pick up where we last left Sam, Mike, his mother and their vampire fighting Grandpa.

There's no denying that The Lost Boys is an 80s cult classic that has a legion of fans. But the franchise hasn't exactly faired well over the past few decades. The movie was supposed to get a true sequel heading into the 90s, which never happened. It would have revolved around an all-girl vampire coven, and may have just been too far ahead of its time. It wasn't until 2008 that »

The Lost Boys” never grow old and never die, which means it’s never too late for a sequel to the cult classic film. Variety can exclusively reveal that the beloved ’80s horror-comedy will receive a sequel comic book in the form of a new miniseries from Vertigo, which will hit shelves on October 12.

Featuring the surviving characters from the film, “The Lost Boys” comic is being crafted by horror veterans, writer Tim Seeley (an alum of DC’s “Grayson” and “Nightwing,” and creator of “Hack/Slash”) and artists Scott Godlewski (“The Dark & Bloody,” “Copperhead”) and Patricia Mulvihill (“The Dark & Bloody,” “Hellblazer”), with covers by Tony Harris. The team promises to deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987.

In the new miniseries, Santa Carla, California, is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after »

Kiefer Sutherland heads on over to the other side for Flatliners remake

Kiefer Sutherland Joins Niels Arden Oplev’s ‘Flatliners’ Remake Alongside Ellen Page

7 July 2016 4:44 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Flatliners” is being revived, and one of its original stars is coming with it. Kiefer Sutherland has joined the remake of the 1990 film after some rescheduling allowed him to also fulfill his obligations to the ABC series “Designated Survivor.” Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemens are all appearing in the film as well. Deadline first broke the news of Sutherland’s casting.

As of right now, the actor is the only original star returning; Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, Billy Baldwin and Oliver Platt aren’t currently involved. “Flatliners” starred the quintet as a group of medical students who, not unlike kids today playing the knockout game, purposefully stop their own hearts in order to trigger near-death experiences. As you might imagine, this doesn’t end up being the best idea. »

Kiefer Sutherland is bringing some '90s nostalgia to the 'Flatliners' remake

7 July 2016 4:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First of all, I'd just like to point out that there was already, ostensibly, a remake of Flatliners. But okay, they're still doing another one anyway! Lalalalalala Can't Hear You Over The Sound Of This Cold Hard Cash. The new film stars Ellen Page, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, Kiersey Clemens and now original cast member Kiefer Sutherland, who's is in talks for the role of a "seasoned doctor," according to Deadline.  Hmmm..."seasoned doctor"...could he possibly be playing Nelson Wright, the same character he portrayed in the original movie? Medical students do tend to pursue careers in the medical field, just saying! The original Flatliners was directed by Joel Schumacher and starred Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Oliver Platt, William Baldwin and Kevin Bacon as medical school students who experiment with near death experiences. The film grossed over $60 million in North America. »

Movie Review – The Neon Demon (2016)

7 July 2016 3:08 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Neon Demon, 2016.

Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.

Starring Elle Fanning, Jena Malone, Bella Heathcote, Abbey Lee, Karl Glusman, Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks, Desmond Harrington and Keanu Reeves.

Synopsis:

When aspiring model Jesse moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.

Style over substance – the go-to phrase poured over Nicolas Winding Refn’s most recent works as the director showcased his grandiose artistic endeavours while perhaps never giving his written work quite so much love and affection. With The Neon Demon however those fears can be laid to rest, as this is his richest and most compelling work since Bronson. From the mesmerising opening moments, as colours twinkle and cascade across the credits, you are summoned into his new whirlwind of lucid images and blushing textures that hypnotises you and never let’s go, »

Nicolas Cage: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

4 July 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jul 5, 2016

We dig through the ten recent straight-to-dvd films of Mr Nicolas Cage. Can we find a gem in there?

The first Nicolas Cage movie I saw wasn’t one of the cool ones. It wasn’t Wild At Heart, Raising Arizona or even Valley Girl. It was the Cher rom-com, Moonstruck.

My mum, having just gone through an acrimonious divorce, was trying to drum up the optimism to find love again, and apparently that involved watching a lot of rom-coms where an idealised – or at least intrinsically whimsical – version of love prevailed over boring old steadfast responsibility.

She would watch Dirty Dancing three or four times in a day, rewinding the ending relentlessly and bawling her eyes out. A VHS of Baby Boom was worn down until the tape resembled a type of grey, flimsy nylon. I hesitate to imagine what she was projecting with repeated viewings of Overboard, »
