Why All Film Directors Should Be Forced To Make A Film For $7,000

30 August 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway argues that every film director should have to make an ultra low-budget film…

This week brought the news that Robert Rodriguez planned to mark the 25th anniversary of his debut, El Mariachi, by making another film for $7,000.

If you don’t know the story of El Mariachi‘s production, then you really should read Rodriguez’s book Rebel Without a Crew, his diary of the making of the film. To raise the money for the film he checked himself into a research hospital to participate in a study and write the script. There he met Peter Marquardt, who he would cast as the bad guy in the film and would later become a video game producer, before sadly dying last year. Rodriguez begged and borrowed favours and equipment to shoot the film (not having a dolly or track for his camera, he used a wheelchair from »

From Dusk Till Dawn: Season Two Premieres 8/25; Austin Mayor Makes It “From Dusk Till Dawn Day”

24 August 2015 5:44 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Last year, we saw the debut of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, which brought the Tarantino-penned/Robert Rodriguez-directed film to the small screen, in a very different approach. It was quite the interesting series, taking turns that were very unexpected and different than the film, which set the TV series on its own path. Now with the August 25th premiere of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Season Two set to make its debut, Austin TX mayor Steve Adler has made August 25th “From Dusk Till Dawn Day”, in a celebration held at Troublemaker studios.

Rodriguez had the following to say: “Austin is my home and I’m honored to have collaborated with the Austin creative community all these years making movies and television for the world to see. I’m so proud that From Dusk till Dawn is Austin made and that we can celebrate this day with the community. »

TV Review: ‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,’ Season 2

21 August 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If the maiden season of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” served a clear purpose – giving a signature, recognizable franchise to the fledgling El Rey Network – it’s hard to make much of a case for an encore. Yes, the show continues with a mix of characters old and new, but whatever novelty there was has worn off, leaving little worth digesting for all but true genre connoisseurs and diehard fans of director Robert Rodriguez and/or the cultish original. Some fresh star power (Esai Morales, Danny Trejo) can’t escape the sense this show has been kept alive past its expiration date.

Granted, there was room for skepticism in certain quarters (including this one) whether the 1996 movie, a staple on latenight cable, cried out to be adapted and expanded into series form in the first place, cashing in on the equity in a title that had already spawned cheapo sequels. »

Three months after Native American extras stormed off the set of Adam Sandler's The Ridiculous 6 over what they considered culturally offensive humor, the actor has commented on the controversy.

50 forgotten sci-fi films from the 1990s

16 July 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may remember Independence Day, The Matrix, The Phantom Menace. But what about these forgotten 90s sci-fi films? And are any worth seeing?

Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.

But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.

So here's a mix of everything from hidden classics to forgettable dreck, »

Watch the trailer for L.A. Slasher starring Mischa Barton, Dave Bautista, Danny Trejo, Eric Roberts and more

25 June 2015 5:07 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With its U.S. release set for tomorrow, a new trailer has arrived online for L.A. Slasher, which features the likes of Mischa Barton, Drake Bell, Dave Bautista, Danny Trejo, Eric Roberts, Abigail Wright, , Frank Collison, Elizabeth Morris, Marisa Lauren, Andy Dick, Brooke Hogan and Tori Black; check it out below, along with the poster and synopsis…

A biting, social satire of reality TV and the glorification of those who are “famous for being famous,” L.A. Slasher takes aim at the current state of the entertainment industry, where it is acceptable (and even admirable) to gain influence and wealth without merit or talent – but instead through shameful behavior, and the notoriety that comes from it.

Driven to rage over the tawdry excess of reality television, a self-appointed cultural crusader kidnaps several famous nobodies to make his point – but his crimes only generate more tabloid frenzy.

L.A. Slasher opens in the States tomorow, »

11 stars using body doubles for nude scenes: Keira Knightley, Mila Kunis, Owen Wilson

19 June 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Game of Thrones star Lena Headey's 'Walk of Shame' nude body double has been revealed as actress Rebecca Van Cleave.

Headey opted out of going naked for the harrowing six-minute sequence "for several reasons", one of which was so she could fully focus on the emotions in her performance.

The actress also wasn't involved in the casting process for her double, adding: "I was like, 'Listen guys, she happens to have a beautiful body, but I don't do casting'. If somebody is brave enough to do this, I applaud it."

We've found 11 other actors and actresses who've spoken candidly about choosing a body double instead of baring their naked bits on the big screen.

And you may find some film scenes quite surprising (it wasn't really Kevin Costner frolicking naked in a waterfall!).
