Abigail Breslin Turns the Tables in Final Girl

24 June 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Abigail Breslin is sure turning into a genre actress lately. It seems like after Zombieland, I’ve seen her in more & more genre films like HaunterThe Call and Maggie. She is also going to appear on Fox’s upcoming genre television show, “Scream Queens”.

Final Girl is a film that I believe I saw a promo trailer earlier this year or maybe even last year and thought it looked interesting. The story also comes from Stephen Scarlata, who was one of the producers of the wonderful documentary, Jodorowsky’s Dune. He is also one of the co-writers of the upcoming VHS Horror Board Game film, Beyond the Gates.

Los Angeles, CA – Renowned photographer to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Tyler Shields will captivate audiences with his debut feature film, the “sardonic, smart, stylized, thriller” (Dennis Dermody, Paper), Final Girl. Starring Oscar® nominee Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland »

Following the songs of American Horror Story: Freak Show and the casting of Lady Gaga, many viewers might expect more musical numbers to take place on FX's American Horror Story: Hotel this fall, but in a recent interview, showrunner Ryan Murphy shared that Hotel will not include any musical numbers. Murphy also discussed bringing Denis O'Hare on board and much more.

Speaking with Nellie Andreeva of Deadline, Murphy discussed that even though Lady Gaga will play a prominent part in American Horror Story: Hotel, she won't be singing:

"No. People, keep saying to me, “What numbers are they singing, what numbers are they singing,” and I say there will be no numbers... I’m excited about that and I think that’s why Gaga was excited about it; it’s not something that she’s ever done before. It’s a pure acting part. I think people expect that »

Welcome To Me Blu-Ray Review

15 June 2015 5:49 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Welcome to Me is the indie gem of the year already, and despite starring Kristen Wiig, not nearly enough people are talking about it… or are aware it exists.

Wiig stars as Alice Klieg, a psychiatric patient who could not be more in need of her meds, but quits taking them. When she does, her days are spent in something like a fugue of self-obsession and rigid routine. She’s addicted to Oprah, almost oblivious to the existence of other people as beings in their own right, and socially inept in a sense that could make the turn of phrase a devastating insult to others.

When Alice wins the lottery, to the tune of over $80 million, she decides to foot the bill for her own television show that’s sort of like Oprah, if Oprah spent her entire show talking about herself. She also decides that she doesn’t really »

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups, but thanks to The Playlist we’ve got a new batch of images from the film, which shows off its all-star cast including Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Wes Bently and Teresa Palmer; check them out here…

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.

In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. »

15 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

How top secret is "American Horror Story: Hotel"? The actors haven't told their families what to expect when the latest installment debuts this October.

Moviefone caught up with Cheyenne Jackson June 7 at the Actors Fund Tony Awards viewing party, where the actor serenaded honoree Alfred Molina with a performance of Elton John's "Your Song."

So can we expect Jackson to sing on "Ahs: Hotel" as well? "I can't say. It's so top, top secret. Literally, not even my mom knows," he said. "I know it's set in a hotel and I know who's in the cast and I know it's scary and amazing. And that's all I know."

The cast, by the way, includes Lady Gaga in her her first TV role (she briefly appeared in "Machete Kills"), as well as Matt Bomer and Max Greenfield ("New Girl") and previous "Ahs" stars Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, »

Pics: From The Dark Knight to ‘Knight Of Cups’ for Christian Bale

15 June 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Directorial enigma Terrence Malick‘s latest Knight Of Cups is currently awaiting a release date. The writer/helmer’s work of late has divided commentators into “profound!” and “pretentious!” camps, with entries such as The Tree Of Life provoking cheers and boos in equal measure.

While the cinemagoing public are deprived of his latest offering, some promotional shots have been released which display Malick and Dop Emmanuel Lubezki‘s typical flair for eye-catching imagery:

Unveiled at the Berlin International Film Festival, anticipation is naturally high whatever the outcome. Cups follows Christian Bale as tortured movie scribe Rick, who roams around Hollywood pondering the nature of existence.

He’s laden with the requisite Daddy issues, and of course the poor soul is involved with a succession of beautiful women – Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman and Imogen Poots co-star.

Yes, it looks like Rick really is having a tough time of it, but never mind, »

Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, And Cate Blanchett Brood In New Images From Terrence Malick's 'Knight Of Cups'

14 June 2015 6:16 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After much anticipation, hype, and expectation, Terrence Malick's long awaited "Knight Of Cups" finally debuted in February at the Berlin International Film Festival (read our review) and then...well, that was about it. We haven't really heard much about the film since. But a batch of new images have arrived featuring the trio of lead stars in the movie. Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, and Cate Blanchett are the big names in the picture that also features appearances by a slew of others including Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Teresa PalmerBrian Dennehy, Wes Bentley, and far too many more to mention here (for example, Jason Clarke pops up but doesn't even have a line of dialogue), and follows Rick, a Hollywood writer having an existential crisis, while grappling with complicated relationships with his father and the women in his life.  These new images are certainly a nice peek at the beautiful photography by Emmanuel Lubezki, »

The tweet also lets us know that season 5 will indeed begin in October 2015. We were pretty sure about that, already, but confirmation is always nice to have.

Max Greenfield Checks in to 'American Horror Story: Hotel'

26 May 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"New Girl" leading man Max Greenfield is trading in comedy for horror: The sitcom star is set to play a shocking -- and doomed -- character on "American Horror Story: Hotel."

"Ahs" creator Ryan Murphy revealed Greenfield's casting on Twitter on Monday, teasing a grim ending for the actor's against-type onscreen alter ego.

This October, Max Greenfield (like you've never seen him) is checking in to the hotel....but not checking out. #AHSHotel

- Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) May 25, 2015

That's more info than we've gotten about any of the other "Hotel" characters so far (especially that bit that not-so-subtly suggests he's a goner), and certainly has us intrigued. While we'll hate to see our beloved Schmidt succumb to evil -- and be done in by the titular establishment -- we'd watch him in anything, and can't wait to see what Murphy and co. have up their sleeves for the quick-witted actor. »
