Ricky Whittle’s Shadow and Emily Browning’s Laura featured in new image from American Gods

20 July 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past couple of days EW has released first-look images of Bruce Langley’s Technical Boy and Yetide Badaki’s Bilquis from Starz’s upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, and now we’ve got another still, this time featuring Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) and his resurrected wife Laura (Emily Browning)…

“As [co-writer Michael Green] would always remind me, this was another in a long line of dead girls I’ve written about,” states Bryan Fuller. “It was fun to take what Neil had created for Laura in the book and imagine her point of view from the scenario that she was in now. One of my favorite times collaboratively on this is when Michael and I were first talking about crafting and expanding Laura’s story, because it felt like we had been handed the baton of her character and could run. She’s always been a source of »

American Gods Adds Dane Cook To Its Stellar Cast

20 July 2016 3:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Starz announced its episodic adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novel, American Gods, it seemed like an epic undertaking. The project is now underway with an astonishing cast, however, and the latest addition is comedian and actor, Dane Cook. He will apparently feature in each of the 10 episodes, making this a significant role for him within a high profile series.

It’s a fantasy story, with tinges of great mystery, and centres on a world in which the old, traditional gods are in conflict with their new, modern counterparts.

American Gods has been translated into over 30 languages and earned numerous accolades including Hugo, Nebula and Bram Stoker Awards for Best Novel.

Fantasia 2016: Rupture is a Solid Sci-Fi Thriller [Review]

18 July 2016 6:10 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Indie writer-director Steven Shainberg has never been one to stick to a single genre, hopping from crime thriller (1998's Hit Me) to kinky dark comedy (2002's criminally under-appreciated Secretary) to biographical drama (2006's Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus). Now, ten years after his last feature, Shainberg tries his hand at science fiction/horror with Rupture, a solid abduction thriller starring Noomi Rapace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), Michael Chiklis (Fantastic Four), and Peter Stormare (Fantasia Festival favorite Bad Milo).

Rapace plays single mother Renee Morgan, whose teenaged son is prone to emotional and angry outbursts. As the audience watches them prepare for their day, we notice that, oddly, some of what we’re [Continued ...] »

First look at Technical Boy in American Gods, Dane Cook joins the cast

17 July 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Entertainment Weekly continues its huge Comic-Con preview with the release of the first official image of Bruce Langley as Technical Boy from Starz’s hotly-anticipated TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods.

“We needed to establish a frame of reference for the aesthetic of the Technical Boy, and [director] David Slade, I believe, was the first one to say ‘Commodore 64,’” states Bryan Fuller. “That will mean more to the audience once they understand more of the Technical Boy’s story — why the Commodore 64 and that era of technology is so informative for the look of him and the story and the general aesthetic when we first sample his world.”

Ever the perky spokesperson, and always in control, she spins stories in whatever direction best suits her.”

[Review] Clown

21 June 2016 10:38 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Inside Out notwithstanding, it’s been awhile since cinema attempted to make clowns scary again, or at least use them as the central focus of a horror piece. Cheap make-up, big shoes, colorful hair, and a frilly suit can’t be all that scary anymore, so why bother? After a three-and-a-half-year shelf life, Clown, the Eli Roth-produced directorial debut of Jon Watts — who went on to put out Cop Car before this film’s release and is currently shooting Spider-Man: Homecoming — has arrived with the full intention of rectifying that void and answering that question.

Following in the footsteps of a Grimm fairy tale, Clown tackles the ‘ancient Nordic myth’ of an evil spirit living inside a clown costume that has one goal: devouring children, one for each month of winter. To do so, someone must first don the costume, wherein they’ll begin to transform into a demonic clown, »

First look images from American Gods featuring Shadow Moon, Mad Sweeney and Mr. Wednesday

18 June 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’ve got some first look images from American Gods, Starz’s upcoming TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed 2001 fantasy novel, which feature Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber) and Mr. Wedensday (Ian McShane) in Jack’s Crocodile Bar; check them out here…

“It was one of the sets that we were the most excited about and an opportunity to do a tonal landgrab for what we are and what the style of the show will be,” states executive producer Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies). “[Jack’s] is a kind of hillbilly chic aesthetic for Shadow’s entrée into the world of the gods.”

“Neil created this wonderfully stuffed toy box filled with all sorts of cultural points of view on how American operates as a system, and that was so fascinating and mythological in and of itself,” Fuller continues. “It’s really much more »

Review: Clown is a Genuinely Disturbing Effort by Jon Watts

17 June 2016 9:14 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s hard to believe that a movie like Clown even got made in the first place; the project started out as a fake trailer several years ago, which caught the attention of Eli Roth (because his name was plastered all over it), who then brought the concept to Vertebra Films in hopes of getting the project off the ground for director Jon Watts.

Now, after all this time, Clown has finally arrived in the Us via Dimension Films, and while it could have used a little more trimming (especially in the film’s second act), by and large, Watts has crafted a genuinely creepy and disturbing body horror experience unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. I had an immensely good time watching Clown, making it well worth the wait.

Clown follows Kent (Andy Powers), a real estate agent doing his best to juggle a demanding career and his responsibilities to his family. »

Clown Review

17 June 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

ClownJon Watts’ long-silenced, Eli-Roth-produced possession flick – is despicably vile. Now, for a horror fan, this might come as a vote of confidence, and typically, you’d be right. I love a good horror movie that f#*ks me up in all the right ways, yet Jon Watts’ transformation-gone-goofy crosses a line that becomes less fun and overly morose. Everything suggests a wacky, wild metamorphosis – from a Peter Stormare bit-part to demon-infested clown suit – but this is grimy, gross-out horror with little meaning beyond kill, kill, and kill some more. It’s fun in spurts, but plays too serious for comfort most of the time – a Coulrophobic’s nightmare buried under weak, underdeveloped scripting.

Andy Powers stars as Watts’ father-turn-demon, a realtor named Kent. The day of his son Jack’s (Christian Distefano) birthday, their party clown cancels at the last minute, which Kent must remedy. As he wanders around an empty listing, »
