Are you one of those people who regularly yells at the TV while watching horror movies, because the characters’ dumb decisions annoy you to no end? If so, your chance to prove how much smarter you are than the average slasher movie victim has arrived, in the form of Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn. Combining horror movies with narrative-focused gaming to create a scary attempt at survival, it’s an instant classic that brings immersion to a whole new level.
Set in what seems to be the remote wilderness of Western Canada, Until Dawn is more of an experience than your average video game. It begins with a bang, then fast forwards a year ahead, to a time where eight friends have decided to culminate for a weekend of wintry remembrance in honour of friends who previously perished. They all ascend a gigantic mountain with the promise of friendship, memories and good times, »

All Stepphy (Jane Levy) wants is to get out of her small town. In Bang Bang Baby, the 1960s-set musical that could easily be the result of David Lynch remaking Hairspray, getting as far away from her small town is an incredibly wise decision, as there’s a chemical leak at the local plant.
While a mysterious purple mist begins to permeate the town, Stepphy happens upon her chance at fulfilling her Hollywood-bound ambitions. Rock idol Bobby Shore (Justin Chatwin) is having a bit of car trouble just down the street from her house and – luck would have it – her father (Peter Stormare) owns the local chop shop.
Canadian director Jeffrey St. Jules’ Bang Bang Baby plays select theatres in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal starting on August 21. Before it hits theatres, Cineplex had the opportunity to chat with Chatwin about the film, his co-stars, and the very real origins of his vain heartthrob character, »

Titled Every Thing Will Be Fine, the film now has a new trailer. Wenders takes on only directorial duties for the feature, working from a screenplay by Norwegian screenwriter Bjørn Olaf Johannessen.

The film’s synopsis is as follows:
While driving aimlessly after a quarrel with his girlfriend, a writer accidentally runs over and kills a child. The accident and its aftermath deeply traumatizes him. Over the next 12 years, he struggles to make sense of what happened and continue on with life, but when he looks in the mirror, he sees a murderer.
This will mark Wenders’ first feature film since 2008’s Palermo Shooting. Wenders, however, has been »

Esteemed German filmmaker Wim Wenders is bringing his latest drama, Every Thing Will Be Fine to Toronto International Film Festival next month, and to stoke excitement ahead of its debut, the first trailer for the film has appeared online via Metropole Films.
Placing The Interview‘s James Franco in the lead role as Tomas, Wenders’ new project charts one man’s spiralling descent into a personal crisis after his life is unceremoniously upended by a car crash. Though the event itself was out of his control, it is Tomas who bears the brunt of the crash’s ramifications as his relationship and work life begin to deteriorate in the aftermath. Charlotte Gainsbourg, Peter Stormare and True Detective‘s Rachel McAdams all star in the motion picture.
Truth be told, this first trailer doesn’t leave much to the imagination, showcasing a series of scenes that may be considered spoiler sensitive. »

"Is there nothing that can get to you?" A trailer has debuted online for Wim Wenders' very heartbreaking, somber, moving film Every Thing Will Be Fine. The film stars James Franco, following him across 12 years as he tries to cope with the weight of a fatal accident one snowy night on a quiet road. This trailer gives away pretty much everything, so don't expect to be surprised, just expect to learn where the story is going - and that's the whole point. It's about actually feeling the emotions over years, not just the shock of what happened. I saw this at Berlinale (read my review) and liked it, despite being so somber. Also starring Rachel McAdams, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marie-Josée Croze and Peter Stormare. Give it a look. Here's the first official trailer (+ a poster) for Wim Wenders' Every Thing Will Be Fine, via YouTube: While driving aimlessly after a quarrel with his girlfriend, »

In modern cinema, the Coen Brothers are giants. Having created classic after classic, these filmmakers are now the stuff of legend – writing, directing and producing films that are among the most original and fascinating ever made, while inspiring new creative projects from others, such as the Fargo TV series. It is understandable, then, that the world jumps to attention when their new projects are announced. Today is no exception, as it is apparently the case that Warner Bros. has optioned the best-selling 1966 novel Black Money for the intimidating duo to adapt, with Joel Silver co-producing.
Black Money is the perfect match for Joel and Ethan Coen, whose body of work includes movies such as Miller’s Crossing, Barton Fink, Raising Arizona and O Brother Where Art Thou? Written by Ross MacDonald, it is a detective story featuring the private eye character Lew Archer, in a complex, layered plot that is darkly funny, »

Some pretty big additions to the fourth season of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles here - both in terms of characters and the actors that will be providing their voices. We have: David Tennant (Doctor Who) as Fugitoid (fan favourite android from another dimension), Peter Stormare (Constantine, Fargo) as Lord Dregg (space-villain bent on world domination), Michael Dorn (Star Trek The Next Generation) as Captain Mozar (Supereme Commander of the Triceratons), Lance Henriksen (Terminator, Aliens) as Zog (a Triceraton scout), Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy) as Armaggon (robotic bounty hunting shark), and finally Zelda Williams (The Legend Of Korra) as Mona Lisa (amphibious friend of the Turtles). Tmnt returns with 20 all-new episodes this Fall. Returning will be: Seth Green (Leonardo), Sean Astin (Raphael), Rob Paulsen (Donatello), Greg Cipes (Michelangelo), Mae Whitman (April O'Neil), Hoon Lee (Master Splinter), Kevin Michael Richardson (Shredder), Josh Peck (Casey Jones) and Corey Feldman (Slash). »
Tennant will be voicing Fugitoid. Previously, the Fugitoid has been the robot version of scientist Professor Honeycutt, who is wanted by an army of Triceraton soldiers for refusing to allow them to use his inventions for warfare. Triceratons are dinosaur alien soldiers. Some of the original Ninja Turtles comics are a little strange. They’re pretty good though.
It seems likely that we’ll see something similar with the character here, as Aliens’ Lance Henrikson and Star Trek’s Michael Dorn were also revealed to have joined the show to voice Triceratons Zod and Captain Mozar respectively.

Rome – Rome-based AMBI Group principals Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi have announced they have closed an option agreement with the Fellini family to produce an homage to Federico Fellini’s classic “La Dolce Vita,” which they will finance and produce with Italian producer Daniele Di Lorenzo.
The film’s director, casting, and all other elements are still being decided.
Di Lorenzo will produce the film through his Ldm Productions banner. Ambi, in addition to financing and producing through Ambi Pictures, will oversee global distribution of the film through its L.A.-based international sales division, Ambi Distribution.
“We’ve been approached countless times and asked to consider everything from remakes and re-imaginings to prequels and sequels. We knew it would take very special producers and compelling circumstances to motivate the family to allow rights to be optioned,” Fellini’s niece Francesca Fellini said in a statement.

Simon Columb with 5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember…
There are problems with The Lost World: Jurassic Park, sure, but it is crucially a Spielberg film. Not executively-produced, but directed by the bearded cinematic deity himself. But you had to skip it because everyone ‘knows’ how bad it is. Truth be known, I don’t think it is that bad. I don’t see the horrendous train-wreck of a film, many believed it was…
The now-defunct podcast ‘Frankly, My Dear‘ once claimed – and I’m paraphrasing – “The Lost World is so bad that it puts in doubt whether Spielberg actually directed the film and, though people claim it’s only the San Diego bit which is bad, in fact, »
