*an online screener of this film was provided by XLrator Media. Director/writer: Greg Francis. Cast: Beau Mirchoff, Ron Perlman, Giancarlo Esposito, Corey Large, Titus Welliver and Halston Sage. This reviewer has been patiently waiting for an opportunity to review Greg Francis' Poker Night, for over a year. This film, which was shot in this critic's hometown (Victoria, B.C.), is set to release in late 2014. Poker Night is a blend of genres, including those of: horror, crime thriller and even comedy. Though, the comedic moments are often very dark and involve the film's central killer. Poker Night is also well produced and the film offers a recognizable cast. This viewer enjoyed the complex story and many film fans will find something to like here. In the story, Jeter (Beau Mirchoff) is a rookie cop, invited to a game or two of poker. His fellow co-workers and police detectives »

Batman: Assault on Arkham, the latest effort from DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, casts Batman aside (for the most part) in order to focus on Amanda Waller's Suicide Squad. The anti-hero team has gotten quite a bit of press lately for its planned live-action adaptation, so now's a great time to take a look at one of the Suicide Squad's animated iterations, now available on Blu-ray. While Batman: Assault on Arkham takes the opportunity to cast Batman villains in lead roles, it doesn't come close to exploring all the potential those characters offer. The voice acting is spot on as usual and the animation style is a visual joy, but the half-baked plot and immature on-screen antics makes this a weak adaptation rather than a must-have addition to your collection. Hit the jump for our Batman: Assault on Arkham Blu-ray review. Feature: The Good Any time the villains get to take center stage, »

This Sunday on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, the forecast calls for extra amounts of snow, seeing as the episode “Smash the Mirror” was supersized to run two hours (starting at 8/7c).
What chilling face-off will the Snow Queen conjure? What burning questions will be answered? (And where does Ingrid stand on the Regina/Robin situation?) TVLine spoke with Lost/Revolution alum Elizabeth Mitchell about all that, her magically gravity-defying wardrobe and more.
Tvline | What have you gone and done that they needed to add an extra hour to this week’s episode?
Oh, you know…. [Laughs] We had this amazing director, »
Poker Night is a creepy new horror-suspense film from the mind of writer/director Greg Francis, whose previous work was in the realm of television. According to his IMDb page, he has a knack for putting together series of the eerie and dramatic variety, such as "Devil in the Details" and "A Haunting." And, he is embracing those same ideas in his first motion picture, which had its artwork and trailer revealed recently. As noted by XLrator Media, the film centers on the story of a young detective (named Jeter) and his girlfriend. At some point in the film, Jeter is "caught in a sadistic game of cat-and-mouse when he [and his girlfriend are] kidnapped and tormented by a masked serial killer." His only way out is to use the knowledge he learned from the older detectives in his precinct—played by the likes of Ron Perlman and Giancarlo Esposito, who regularly share their »

“The Maze Runner” is yet another young adult novel-turned-movie blockbuster that has capitalized on the trend of having teens in precarious, deadly, post-apocalyptic situations. The film made tons of money at the box office–$163.4 million worldwide, according to CinemaBlend–so of course, a sequel is in the works. You might be a person who is over all of these Ya post-apocalyptic adaptations, but when you see who has just been cast in “The Maze Runner” sequel, you just might be on board (especially if you’re a fan of “Breaking Bad” or “Once Upon a Time”). The Hollywood Reporter states that Giancarlo Esposito, a fan-favorite actor from ABC’s”Once Upon a Time,” AMC’s [ Read More ]
Aidan Gillen, who plays Littlefinger in Game of Thrones, is set to play the villain in Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, which is the sequel to The Maze Runner that 20th Century Fox recently announced. The actor also played a major part in HBO's The Wire. He will be joined by Breaking Bad co-star Giancarlo Esposito, Rosa Salazar, and Mud actor Jacob Lofland.
I thought The Maze Runner was an awesome movie, and I'm glad that the studio is moving forward with the next installment of the James Dashner book trilogy. The story picks up after a small group of teens escape a deadly maze. The sequel picks up with them on the run in a wasteland of Earth that has been ravaged by solar flares.
According to THR, Gillen will play Janson, who becomes the main antagonist of the Maze Runner books. He is also referred to as Rat-Man. Salazar will play Brenda, »

I haven't seen or read any of the reviews for The Maze Runner. I have been told it was visually impressive, especially considering it was made on a budget of only $34 million and the film is certainly doing well worldwide, having already made $175.4 million in 17 days of release. So, with Fox already planning The Maze Runner Chapter II: The Scorch Trials for release less than a year after the first one hit theaters, they are clearly hoping to strike while the iron is hot. In the sequel, Dylan O'Brien return as Thomas, but now that he and the rest of the teen heroes have escaped the maze they must now travel the wasteland that is Earth, ravaged by solar flares. Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Sangster, Jacob Lofland and Rosa Salazar are also returning. Joining the cast for the next chapter include Aidan Gillen ("The Game of Thrones") as the film's lead »
