The bond between a father and son is key to the development of a man’s life. A father can be a teacher, friend, mentor, structure, a bastard and a compass. When the son decides to leave and find his own path, it brings pride, drama and a realistic tension that creates compelling storytelling. One of the weaving themes of this year’s Fantastic Fest film programming has been within the relationship dynamic of fathers and sons in a variety of dark, twisted and thrilling horror narratives. Films like the The Greasy Strangler, Miss Peregrins Home For The Peculiar and one of the best films of this festival, The Autopsy Of Jane Doe, all deal with such themes. Starring Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch, two of the most well respected and true assets to their craft, this profile of family drama, supernatural visual storytelling and growing isolation is laid out »

Jim Jarmusch premiered two new movies at the Cannes Film Festival this year, but only one documentary. “Gimme Danger” traces the rise, heyday and enduring legacy of the Stooges, whom the filmmaker describes as “the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band ever” in his film. Courtesy of Yahoo Movies, watch the documentary’s new trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis: “Emerging from Ann Arbor Michigan amidst a countercultural revolution, The Stooges’ powerful and aggressive style of rock-n-roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band planted the seeds for what would be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed. Jim Jarmusch’s new film ‘Gimme Danger’ chronicles the story of The Stooges, one »

Exclusive: $13m project from Salon Pictures will chart story of soldier who suffered severe burns during the Falklands War; Embankment to sell.
The story of Simon Weston, the British army veteran who endured severe burns during the Falklands War, is to be told in an ambitious new film which has Jonathan Teplitzky (The Railway Man) attached to direct.
Salon Pictures is producing the feature.
Weston came back from the brink of death to rebuild his life. He wrote best-selling autobiographies, campaigned tirelessly for charity and is regarded by many as a symbol of Britain’s war in the Falklands.
During the Falklands War in 1982 Weston was a young soldier on the ship Rfa Sir Galahad when an Argentine Skyhawk dropped a 500lb bomb, killing most of his platoon. His fight for survival and recovery took him to a dark abyss.

One of the most inventive foreign exports of the decade so far is André Øvredal‘s Trollhunter, a thrilling, funny mockumentary which puts us on the ground as we witness a creature hunt in the Norwegian outdoors. He’s now back for another thriller of a very different variety with The Autopsy of Jane Doe.
Rather than exploring the great outdoors, the film finds us in a morgue with Emile Hirsche, Brian Cox, and Ophelia Lovibond as secret involving a newly arrived corpse begin to pile up. IFC Midnight has dropped the first trailer, which is a nearly dialogue-free tease as the mystery amps up. Following a premiere at Tiff and ahead of a December opening, check out the trailer below as well as the Fantastic Fest synopsis and poster.

Thanks to Empire, we’ve got a new image from Churchill, director Jonathan Teplitzky’s upcoming biopic of the British wartime leader, which explores the 48 hours leading up to D-Day and stars Brian Cox as the legendary British Prime Minister. As you’d expect, he looks like he’s got the weight of the world on his shoulders – perhaps Michael Bay should show send him some dailies from Transformers: The Last Knight to cheer him up…
May 23rd, 1944: as tensions mount in the 48-hours preceding D-Day, the now-beleaguered Prime Minister Winston Churchill, played by Brian Cox (The Bourne Supremacy, X-Men 2, Zodiac, War & Peace, Troy), must prepare a final attempt to crush Hitler’s encroaching army. With the entire War effort ultimately hinging on this decision, the stakes have never been higher. As the Wartime leader clashes with his generals, tension builds with the Americans, and Churchill must wrestle his »

Following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month, a poster and trailer have arrived online for Troll Hunter director Andre Ovredal’s upcoming horror The Autopsy of Jane Doe which stars Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch; take a look below…
“Experienced coroner Tommy Tilden and his grown-up son Austin run a family-owned morgue and crematorium in Virginia. When the local Sheriff brings in an emergency case — an unknown female corpse nicknamed ‘Jane Doe’, found in the basement of a home where a multiple homicide took place — it seems like just another open-and-shut case. But as the autopsy proceeds, these seasoned professionals are left reeling as each layer of their inspection brings frightening new revelations. Perfectly preserved on the outside, Jane Doe’s insides have been scarred, charred and dismembered — seemingly the victim of a horrific yet mysterious ritualistic torture. As Tommy and Austin begin to piece together these gruesome discoveries, »

Families who cut open cadavers together stay together. That, at least, is the vibe given off by “The Autopsy of Jane Doe,” a thriller starring Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch as a team of father-son coroners whose latest corpse provides more questions than answers. Watch the film’s first teaser trailer below.
“The Autopsy of Jane Doe” marks the English-language debut of Norwegian filmmaker André Øvredal, who previously directed “Trollhunter.” The minute-long ad doesn’t show Cox and Hirsch performing what are typically thought of as the standard duties of a mortician, but the two of them do seem rather afraid of whatever’s on the other side of the door they’ve barricaded themselves behind. (Spoiler: It’s probably Jane Doe).

In The Autopsy Of Jane Doe, Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch play father and son coroners who receive a mysterious homicide victim with no apparent cause of death. As they attempt to identify the Jane Doe, they discover increasingly bizarre clues that hold the key to her terrifying secrets. You can get a glimpse into the madness with the following teaser! I love the idea of pairing up Brian Cox and Emile... Read More »

The Autopsy Of Jane Doe stars Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch as a father-son team running a morgue that turns into a site of supernatural horror. Troll Hunter director André Øvredal brings us this open casket flick, with the supposedly dead Jane Doe making a lot of noise thanks to the bell affixed to her ankle, like a cat whose ringing scares away potential prey.
Seemingly perfectly preserved on the outside, the morticians find Jane Doe’s insides have been gruesomely maimed and scarred, her body revealing clues as to what really happened to her. The closed-environment trope looks to be even scarier when moved from the typical house/mansion to a ’70s-era morgue.
The Autopsy Of Jane Doe premiered at Tiff, where it received mixed reviews. It opens December 21.

A father and son coroner team encounter nighttime terror at their mortuary in the first teaser trailer for The Autopsy of Jane Doe.
Synopsis: "A father-son coroner team (Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch) face the ultimate headscratcher with their latest corpse: an unidentified beautiful young woman who boasts no obvious cause of death. As they dig deeper into the examination (and into Jane Doe’s body), the duo uncover increasingly strange and terrifying things. This bloody, clever, and medically rigorous horror film turns the morbid conventions of the genre literally inside-out."

We're nearing Halloween season -- the season for chills, thrills, and jumpscares. Yet despite this fact there certainly seems to be a definite lack of horror fare heading to theaters in the coming month, and with the delay of the film Rings, the only real contenders are 31, Ouija: Origin of Evil, and (most terrifyingly) Boo! A Madea Halloween.
While this year has been a definite win for horror, for some reason, this October is totally lacking. This next trailer for the upcoming horror flick, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, doesn't necessarily make things any better for this Halloween, but it certainly seems it could add to the long list of strong scary movies for the year as a whole.

Director André Øvredal’s latest film, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, recently enjoyed its debut here in Austin for the 2016 Fantastic Fest. The story follows a father and son (Brian Cox, Emile Hirsch) who work as coroners in their family mortuary business. One night, the sheriff drops off the corpse of a young woman found at a crime scene, and the duo have only a short amount of time to try and piece together what happened to the mysterious woman. But as their examination progresses, the circumstances surrounding the woman’s death become more and more unusual, revealing terrifying secrets the further they get in their work.
While in Austin, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with Øvredal, who discussed why he felt The Autopsy of Jane Doe was a great sophomore effort, working with his insanely talented cast, and whether or not we’ll ever see more from »

Amazon has released the trailer for “Good Girls Revolt,” a new drama premiering next month. The two-minute spot takes us to 1969 New York, where a group of women working in a newsroom begin to reject their subservient positions to take on more prominent roles.
Here’s the official synopsis: “In 1969, while a cultural revolution with a soundtrack to match swept through the free world, there was still one place that refused to change with the times: newsrooms. ‘Good Girls Revolt’ follows a group of young female researchers, Jane Hollander (Anna Camp), Patti Robinson (Genevieve Angelson) and Cindy Reston (Erin Darke) at ‘News of the Week,’ who simply ask to be treated fairly. Their revolutionary request, led by lawyer Eleanor Holmes Norton (Joy Bryant), will spark convulsive changes and upend marriages, careers, sex lives, love lives, »

Ever since shooting began earlier this month on Super Troopers 2, the upcoming comedy sequel keeps expanding its cast. Today we have word that recent addition Tyler Labine will be joined by Hayes MacArthur and Will Sasso, with the actors playing a trio of Mounties. The Broken Lizard Twitter even showcased the first set photo with all three actors in costume.
The casting news broke at Deadline earlier today. Their report states that Hayes MacArthur plays Mountie Podein, Will Sasso plays Mountie Archambault and Tyler Labine rounds out the trio as Mountie Bellefuille. These Canadian cops are described as "rugged and manly," who all believe that Americans are "obnoxious and oafish." It wasn't revealed how these characters connect to the main characters, played by the Broken Lizard troupe.
These actors join newcomers such as Emmanuelle Chriqui, who plays a French/Canadian cultural attaché trying to improve relations with the United States, »
Making good on the promise of his very homegrown fantasy-action hit “Trollhunter,” Norwegian helmer Andre Ovredal’s first English-language feature is something quite different: a chamber horror piece in which a corpse’s stillness only grows more ominously unreliable as it’s dissected. “The Autopsy of Jane Doe” stars Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch as father-and-son morticians whose slab subject seems to exert considerable supernatural will on one stormy night, despite her apparently very dead state. A raucous crowd-pleaser at Tiff’s midnight premiere, this taut, yet often slyly funny scarefest should do well with genre fans. IFC and Raven Banner have picked up distribution rights for the U.S. and Canada, respectively.
Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing’s nicely honed screenplay opens with police investigating a bloody crime scene: Four ordinary residents have been found slaughtered in their small-town Virginia home. All signs indicate that they were trying »
