In the post-Lady in the Water era, it’s tough to remember how bonkers people once went for The Sixth Sense. But a mere millennium ago, M. Night Shyamalan’s atmospheric thriller was the toast of audiences and critics alike — a box office smash, a cultural touchstone, a freakin’ Best Picture nominee. Not only at the MTV Movie Awards, but also at the Oscars!
How did a simple, potentially gimmicky ghost story capture our hearts and minds so fully? Easy: because despite the shadow hindsight casts upon it, The Sixth Sense is a great movie. Its brief 107-minute run »

Tusk - which originated from one of Smith's podcasts - is described as a modern day monster movie, and it reunites him with actor Michael Parks, who gave such a memorable turn in Red State. The cast also includes Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and Justin Long. And it's Long that's revealed that Johnny Depp is in the movie too.
Chatting to Long Island Newsday, Long revealed the news, and it's assumed that Depp's agreement to appear in the film is what sparked this Tweet off Smith back in September...

Long plays a journalist who finds the story of a lifetime in Mr. Howe (Michael Parks), a worldwide adventurer with amazing tales and a curious penchant for walruses.
Long let slip the news of Depp's involvement in an interview with Long Island Newsday. Smith previously indicated that he has secured a major movie star for a small but crucial role, but wouldn't say who.
A24, Demarest Films and Depp's representatives haven't commented on the story. »

This is the first we've heard about the actor being cast in director Kevin Smith's movie. The story follows Justin Long's character, a journalist who lands the story of a lifetime when he meets Mr. Howe (Michael Parks), an adventurer who has a strange penchant for walruses. Genesis Rodriguez, Haley Joel Osment and Ralph Garman co-star.
Johnny Depp's role has not been confirmed, but The Wrap speculates that he may be playing a French-Canadian inspector named Guy Lapointe, who investigates a strange case involving a man trapped in a walrus costume. Kevin Smith had previously hinted that he wants a major movie star for the role, »
Okay, here's an odd one. So, Justin Long was interviewed by Long Island News Day, in a piece published a few weeks ago. But it has picked up interest because the actor seemingly randomly name dropped/humblebragged about a major star popping up in Kevin Smith's forthcoming "Tusk." Either that or something went horribly awry in the transcription process. Anyway, when asked by the paper what movies he had coming up, Long replied: "Yeah, the one where a man turns into a war horse. It's called 'Tusk.' Johnny Depp is in that one. I'm working on something coming up later." Again, it could all being a mistake and maybe the interview somehow mistook Haley Joel Osment for Johnny Depp or something. And it should be noted, that the movie is not about a man being turned into a "war horse"; the horror flick is about a man who »

Hammer release their latest film tomorrow and though we’re a long way from the dread sight of Christopher Lee’s blood-red eyes staring into our soul there is a tangible sense of anticipation for each new release.
The Quiet Ones, which is included on this list, may not leap out at you as a must-see but it has a fine cast and a great concept (to create a ghost, rather than to find one). Bradley Hanson has chosen ten horrors out this year which you may not have heard of, but which you need to remember.
Here we look at the top ten horror films expected to be released in 2014, it was a tough choice whittling down to a meagre ten. So what thrills, spills, splatters and chills can we expect in the year to come?

Mike Flanagan wowed audiences with his feature directorial debut, Absentia, a few years back. Now he returns with an even creepier tale of supernatural terrors in Oculus (review). To celebrate the release of Oculus, we bring you a look at the Top Seven Supernatural Films that Haunt Us.
The funny thing about a really powerful supernatural movie, at least those that get wide theatrical releases, is they usually transcend the theater and become the talk of the nation for a while. And many of them even hang around our psyches for years and years to come.
We'll begin, as always, with our honorable mentions, and you'll see that many of them also took the country by storm. Low budget, found footage movies like Paranormal Activity and The Blair Witch Project were absolutely larger than life during their theatrical releases.
However, bigger films can also reach out and grab you. Poltergeist »

Blockbuster season is almost upon us, but what will next summer's big hitters be? Here's a roundup
Once upon a time, summer blockbuster season 2015 was set to be packed with the biggest collision of big franchises we'd ever seen together. However, one by one, lots of these films moved away to other dates. As such, you won't be seeing Star Wars: Episode VII, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Independence Day 2, Batman Vs Superman or Finding Dory in a cinema next summer.
But even with those films gone, there's still no shortage of huge movies battling for your cash in a year's time. And as is traditional for us at the start of summer blockbuster season, we've taken a look at what's coming up in 12 months' time.
The Disney Dtv sequels have become a bit if an embarrassment to the Disney legacy. There have been a lot of them and for every Toy Story 2 there are a half dozen cash-ins like Aladdin The Return Of Jafar, Beauty And The Beast’S Enchanted Christmas, and Lilo And Stitch – Stitch Has A Glitch. Most seemed rushed with inferior animation, weak tunes, and lame scripts. They may have worked their way into the wallets of the Disney fans, but not their hearts.
Let’s face it – topping Phil Harris and his classic jungle jive in the original 1967 Jungle Book wasn’t going to happen but 2003’s Jungle Book 2 was better than most sequels, had an impressive voice cast, and was wise enough to include the Jb signature tune “The Bear Necessities” not once but three times! The film’s animation was more detailed and vivid than most of Disney »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? Anna (Kristen Bell) doesn't know why she and her sister Elsa (Idina Menzel) have grown apart over the years. Doesn't she want to build a snowman like they used to do when they were kids? Actually, Elsa is a little too good at building snowmen, because she's the gosh-darn Ice Queen and turns everything to frost when she gets mad or stressed out. Anna goes on a mission to save her sister, along with a dude named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), his beloved reindeer, and a talking snowman named Olaf (Josh Gad) who just wants a hug.
Why We're In: This is one of the best Disney movies to come out in years. Even adults are secretly listening to Menzel belt out the Oscar-winning song "Let It Go" on their headphones.

What's It About? »

I applaud Paul F. Tompkins for interviewing Haley Joel Osment and not just shaking his head and asking, "Man, 'A.I.' What was that about?" That'd have been my approach. On Tompkins' webseries "Speakeasy," the comedian grills the youngish Oscar nominee -- Osment's still only 25 -- about whether certain celebrities are alive or dead. You'd think "The Sixth Sense" star would know, right? Well. Not when it comes to Wilt Chamberlain, y'all. »

The Entourage just keeps growing! Sure to be one of the sexiest stars in the upcoming film, ‘Blurred Lines’ and Gone Girl star Emily Ratajkowski will play herself, while a number of returning cast members from the HBO show including Debi Mazar, Rex Lee, Constance Zimmer and Nora Dunn will also be making an appearance. Now we have only left to speculate which one of the beloved Entourage characters will be getting most screen time with Ms Ratajkowski. My money is on Vincent Chase himself!
Missing none of the original cast members, the Entourage movie will star Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven, as well as Perrey Reeves as Ari Gold’s wife, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Sloan and Rhys Coiro as Billy Walsh. Also starring are Billy Bob Thornton and Haley Joel Osment as father and son Larsen and Travis McCredle.
Entourage is set to »
