Video: Rings Samara Crawls From TV In Real Life And Scares Store Customers

We all know the rules: first you watch it, then you die.

Watch as hidden cameras capture the reactions of unsuspecting customers when Rings Samara comes for them.

A young woman becomes worried about her boyfriend when he explores a dark subculture surrounding a mysterious videotape said to kill the watcher seven days after he has viewed it.

She sacrifices herself to save her boyfriend and in doing so makes a horrifying discovery: there is a “movie within the movie” that no one has ever seen before…

Fans of the 2002 supernatural film, directed by Gore Verbinski and starring Naomi Watts, Martin Henderson, Brian Cox, Jane Alexander and Daveigh Chase, have been looking forward to another film for years. (Trailer). Adding to the movie’s tension was the spine-chilling score from Hans Zimmer along with the unnerving cinematography by Bojan Bazelli. It »

Great Job, Internet!: The new bass drop that’s ruining every trailer

19 January 2017 12:20 PM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

A new supercut by the short filmmakers and pop culture fans at CinemaRaven displays the criminally excessive use of a particular bass drop in dozens of recent movie trailers. Whether Dominic Toretto is turning his back on his family or Lightning McQueen is leaving racing behind him, nearly every trailer marks the dramatic turn with a similar deep bass tone that dips into an inaudible rumble. Listen for yourself below:

While the musical sting isn’t identical in each clip, the effect the filmmakers (or more likely studio heads) were going for remains the same. Amidst the non-stop action of a modern blockbuster trailer, the audience apparently needs a moment to stop and remind themselves, “This is dramatic and I’m aware of that because of the scary bass noise!” And though it may not be as in-your-face as the Hans Zimmer “Braaaaam” or the hit-you-over-the-head meta jokes of recent »

Musical Maestro Hans Zimmer May Return To Superhero Genre After All

17 January 2017 7:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s going on 12 months since Hans Zimmer formally announced his retirement from the superhero genre – a decision made in the aftermath of his contribution to Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – but it seems the German composer has left the door open for a possible return.

Chatting to The West Australian (via Batman-News), Zimmer touched base on his time spent in the genre of costumed heroes, which also spans Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and The Dark Knight trilogy, before noting that he’d consider another superhero gig providing “somebody comes along with a great idea.”

“It’s true,” Zimmer said of his retirement from superhero films, before adding, “until somebody comes along with a great idea. “How many people have to go write two Batman themes in their lifetime? I needed a break from it. And I needed to categorically say ‘I need a break’.”

Sherlock, and the musical highlights of Sherlock Holmes

15 January 2017 5:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Wilson Jan 16, 2017

From the BBC's Sherlock, through Disney, Hans Zimmer and Young Sherlock Holmes: we salute the music of Mr Holmes...

Few characters have enjoyed as much reinvention as Arthur Conan Doyle's sleuth Sherlock Holmes, an enduring icon who is as much bound up with the history of cinema (and indeed stage, TV and radio) as he is with literature. Indeed, adaptations of Holmes stories stretch right the way back to the earliest days of film at the start of the 20th century. Fittingly enough given Holmes' penchant for a violin serenade, the musical scores to his adventures are as richly varied as the outcomes to his mysteries are unexpected. Here are Holmes' musical highlights, from Buster Keaton through to Benedict Cumberbatch.

Sherlock Jr. (1924)

Not, strictly speaking, a Sherlock movie but as the title implies, the legacy of the character casts a long shadow over Buster Keaton's silent classic. »

Et Obsessions: ‘This Is Us’ Return, Margo Martindale and ‘Hidden Figures’

9 January 2017 7:45 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Here at Et, we’re obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of Jan. 9 to Jan. 15, this is what we’re most excited about:

This Is Us

One of the most anticipated TV shows of the year is the return of This Is Us, which captivated with its unexpected plot twists and tear-jerking storylines in the fall and was nominated for three Golden Globes, for Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz and Best Drama Series. At the end of the fall finale, we were left with one major cliffhanger: What happened to Toby (Chris Sullivan) after he collapsed in Randall’s (Sterling K. Brown) house? Is he alive or dead? "I think people will be very surprised, maybe a little on edge," Chrissy Metz tells Et.

Not only will the show answer that question early in the premiere, it will also dive deeper in the backstory of Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Moore) Pearson. “There »

"La La Land" Makes Golden Globes History! See Complete Winners List!

8 January 2017 4:40 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Damien Chazelle's "La La Land" made history at the 74th Annual Golden Globes winning all 7 nominations including Best Picture Musical/Comedy! The film won Best Actor (Ryan Gosling), Actress (Emma Stone), Director, Screenplay, Score, and Song! Previously, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" was the record-holder for winning 6/6 and both "Doctor Zhivago" and "A Star is Born" 5 for 5.

A big congrats to Chazelle and "La La Land!"

The biggest upset for me? Natalie Portman's "Jackie" performance was overshadowed by Isabelle Huppert in "Elle." I thought Portman, wigs and make-up included, embodied the role of our former First Lady!

In the TV category, "The Night Manager" was the big winner taking home three awards (mostly for performance for Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman, and Hugh Laurie), followed by "The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story" and "The Crown" each with two.

Here's a few of my observations of »
