FrightFest 2014: All Cheerleaders Die

24 August 2014 12:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Lucky McKee, Chris Sivertson.

Cast: Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee, Brooke Butler, Amanda Grace Cooper, Reanin Johannink, Tom Williamson.

Certificate: 18.

Running Time: 89 minutes.

Synopsis: Maddy (Stasey) is out for revenge against the cheerleaders and jocks. She infiltrates the cheerleaders and begin to forge friendships, but her attached neighbour Leena (Smit-McPhee), who is into the dark arts, becomes jealous. After a shocking accident, things begin to get out of hand between cheerleaders and football players.

How much can we in the UK care about cheerleading and American high school politics? It’s almost as though such cultural ideals are from a different planet entirely. Granted, we’ve been subjected to them throughout visual media and music videos, which has given us an insight into these vapid lifestyles. So why should we care about All Cheerleaders Die? Because it has the name Lucky McKee attached to it, and any man behind the »

5 Peter Capaldi films you need to see ahead of his Doctor Who debut

21 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Digital Spy presents Doctor Who Week - seven days of special features celebrating the return of the world's favourite sci-fi series, and the arrival of a brand new Doctor on August 23.

When Peter Capaldi steps out of the Tardis this weekend for his Doctor Who debut, it'll be the first time many will see the wiry Scottish actor in action. Playing The Doctor will raise Capaldi's profile into the stratosphere, but he's been a supporting staple on the small and big screen since the early '80s.

Digital Spy casts its eyes over five film highlights from the 12th Doctor.

Local Hero (1983)

Capaldi's second acting job was in Bill Forsyth's brilliantly moving Local Hero, a comedy-drama about an American oil company worker who's dispatched to Scotland with a view to buying up land surrounding a small community. His first point of contact is Capaldi's Danny Oldsen, a fresh-faced bumbler who, »

You either believe in it or you don't: the future of the BBC | Charlotte Higgins

20 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The BBC is among our greatest national institutions and it is revered across the world. But it stands accused of timid journalism, patchy drama and byzantine management. In the final part of her in-depth series on the past, present and future of the BBC, Charlotte Higgins assesses the health of the corporation and the challenges it faces on the road to charter renewal in 2016

Read the full series of The BBC Report

It was a hot London day and the U-shaped courtyard of the BBC in Portland Place was airless and sun-strafed. Light glared off pale stone. Employees crowded into a sliver of shade to eat their lunchtime sandwiches. The doors of the older, 1930s wing stood open, so that the wonky, stained little notice that sometimes hangs there bidding visitors welcome to the BBC, was invisible. On my many visits, I had enjoyed this intimate, ad hoc sign. It »

10 Most Ridiculous Parts Of The DC Multiverse‏

15 August 2014 2:21 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Comics

Recent critical opinion of DC Comics has not been great. Well, the sales have been doing okay, but the prevailing wisdom from readers and reviewers alike is that the publisher has, in some ways, hit a bit of a creative slump. A few years ago they rebooted their entire fictional universe and its 75 year history with an initiative called the New 52, beginning with a clean slate that returned a lot of characters to old status quos, undid a lot of interesting stuff and all seemed to be in pursuit of resurrecting a certain sort of superhero comic: cynical, self-consciously trying to be cool – and whatever you do, don’t mention the multiverse.

In its first few decades DC managed to accumulate a pretty impressive collection of alternate universes, populated by backwards Supermen like Bizarro and vampire Batmen, which were pretty much standard fare for the wacky comic books of the fifties. »

Adam Sandler's 'Pixels' Gets New July 2015 Release Date

12 August 2014 4:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Best friends Judd Apatow and Adam Sandler have a new rivalry to look forward to, as the Funny People pair find their two big summer 2015 releases going head-to-head at the box office. Sony Pictures has decided to move their video game comedy Pixels, starring Sandler, right into the path of Amy Schumer's aptly titled Trainwreck, directed by Apatow.

Originally set for release on May 15, 2015, Pixels is getting pushed further into next summer, now landing on the July 24, 2015 weekend, where it will face not only Amy Schumer's big theatrical debut, but also MGM's Poltergeist remake starring Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris.

Pixels was originally set to open opposite Mad Max: Fury Road, which earned a lot of buzz coming out of Comic-Con this past July, and the musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2, which comes with a diehard built-in audience of Barden Bella faithfuls.

Adam Sandler Comedy ‘Pixels’ Moved Back 2 Months

12 August 2014 3:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Adam Sandler’s action comedy “Pixels” is being pushed back by two months, Sony Pictures said Tuesday.

The film will premiere on July 24, 2015, where it faces competition from supernatural thriller “Poltergeist” as well as “Trainwreck,” another comedy from Sandler pal, Judd Apatow. “Pixels” had been slated for release on May 15, 2015, when it would have faced off against “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Pitch Perfect 2.”

The film kicks off after aliens misinterpret video-feeds of arcade games as a declaration of war against them, prompting an assault on Earth.

Their attack prompts the president (Kevin James) to enlist his childhood best friend (Sandler) to use the skills he honed as a Reagan-era video game champ to defend the world. Peter Dinklage and Brian Cox co-star.

Chris Columbus (“Mrs. Doubtfire”) directs from a story by Tim Herlihy and a screenplay by Herlihy and Timothy Dowling. It will be produced by Sandler’s »

Earlier today, Sony Pictures moved up the release date for its Brad Pitt-fronted WWII drama Fury, but now the studio's Pixels release date is being pushed back.  Originally scheduled for May 15, 2015, director Chris Columbus’ action-adventure pic will now open on July 24, 2015.  The film stars Adam Sandler and revolves around a group of 80s arcade game champions who are called upon to help defend earth from alien invaders who have misinterpreted our classic arcade games as a declaration of war.  The cast includes Josh Gad, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Brian Cox, and a mullet-sporting Peter Dinklage, and while we haven’t seen any footage just yet, it actually sounds like one of the most promising Adam Sandler movies in some time.  Hit the jump for more on the film and its new release date.

10 Terrible Mistakes That Almost Ruined The X-Men Movies For Everyone

11 August 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

The X-Men movie franchise has had its fair share of ups and downs but, on the whole, it has been a very successful endeavour for Fox.

Starting way back in the year 2000, along with Blade two years prior, it is generally considered to be the reason that the superhero movie genre is so enormously successful today.

The franchise has turned previously little-known actors like Hugh Jackman in to global superstars and boasts a plethora of top class acting talent that includes, or at least has included, the likes of Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Brian Cox, Kevin Bacon, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Peter Dinklage.

There have, however, been some fairly terrible errors and some near-misses that threatened to wreck the X-Men as a movie franchise along the way. Had the notoriously hard-to-please comic book movie audiences not been so surprisingly lenient, the franchise »

Watch: Meet the Man Who Writes All Your Favorite Movie Novelizations

30 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

It’s controversial opinion time. If you want ham and cheese, there’s Anthony Hopkins’ Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs. If you want a quietly menacing (and believable) depiction of a cannibalistic serial killer, there’s Brian Cox’s Hannibal Lecter in Manhunter. With his sonorous voice, gleaming wit and Scottish brogue, the versatile actor has has made his mark in a number of films, from popcorn flicks (X2: X-Men United) to Oscar winners (Braveheart). In this Funny or Die skit, Cox plays esteemed author William St. Bromms, who teaches a master class on how to write the perfect novelization of a film. He recites excerpts from some of his greatest novelizations to inspire his students, which also leaves us in hysterics. “Indiana Jones...

Game On! First Shot From ‘Pixels’ Starring Dinklage, Sandler, Gad & Monaghan

30 July 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Just a few days after getting that confirmation of Pixels and Sony Pictures venture into the retro gaming world, we get our first look at the cast who appear to be geeking out at (possibly) winning some kind of competition – It’s all guess work at this point to be honest.

Back in the directors chair is the legendary Chris Columbus which definitely stirs the interest further for this film where video game experts are recruited by the military to fight 1980s-era video game characters who’ve attacked New York. Yes, you read that correctly.

Based on the original short by Patrick Jean a few years ago, Sony have taken the idea and extensively expanded the universe. I was initially concerned about what they could do at all but it sounds brilliant mental, so right up my ridiculous street. It stars Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, Adam Sandler, Kevin James and Brian Cox. »
