After spending a lifetime watching and studying classic martial arts films, Wu Tang Clan's RZA got to finally make his own kung fu movie with 2012's The Man with the Iron Fists, which he directed, co-wrote, produced and starred in. The actor-filmmaker returns to reprise his role as the title character Thaddeus, while co-writing and producing the sequel The Man with the Iron Fists 2. I had the good fortune to speak with the actor filmmaker over the phone, before this sequel arrives on Blu-ray and DVD April 14 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
The sequel picks up long after the events of The Man with the Iron Fists, where Thaddeus is found near death, literally drifting past a 19th Century village where he is saved by a miner's (Dustin Nguyen) family. As he heals from his wounds, Thaddeus expresses his desire to find peace, but it becomes quickly clear »
The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.
From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.
Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

As I mentioned last time out, this series has officially returned. Yes, once again I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent (or now recent-ish) Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be attempting to do just that, time will still tell if it’s something that gets stuck with or not. Again, if nothing else, this continues to give you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright then, here goes nothing folks…behold my »

When it comes to glossy studio-backed haunted-house movies, "Poltergeist" was the first out of the gate and arguably remains the best, a thrilling big-budget adventure ride produced (and some would say partially directed) by Steven Spielberg that brought an Amblin-esque sheen to a creaky sub-genre harkening back to such "old dark house" fare as 1927's "The Cat and the Canary" and 1944's "The Uninvited." At the time it undoubtedly felt like a fresh take, and even more than 1979's "The Amityville Horror" it set the template for the modern supernatural horror movie. The upcoming Gil Kenan-directed remake, meanwhile? Can't say I'm chomping at the bit for it. Though I felt cautiously optimistic after hearing about the talent attached -- "Rabbit Hole" playwright and screenwriter David Lindsay-Abaire wrote the script, while Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie Dewitt were set to star as the central couple who fight to free their young »

Here's the french trailer for "Poltergeist" reboot, produced by genre legend Sam Raimi ("The Evil Dead") and directed by Gil Kenan ("Monster House").

When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and take the youngest daughter, the family must come together to rescue her. »
Not long ago Sam Rockwell, who plays the dad in the upcoming Poltergeist remake, revealed that the new version was "more of a kids' movie." This was a red flag for a lot of fans who thought it meant the movie wouldn't be scary, so we promptly reminded everyone that it wasn't necessarily a bad idea. But if you're still convinced it means the movie is doomed, maybe this new trailer will settle your nerves a bit. Director Gil Kenan told USA Today that "The film is super scary. And it's scary on its own terms." And while we assume that means this new take on the story of a family living in a house at the epicenter of a gateway to the Other Side will have plenty of original ideas up its sleeve, we can't forget...

“I want you all to clear your minds. They already know what scares you.” It was effective when Tangina (Zelda Rubenstein) said it in 1982. It rattles the nerves again to hear it in the brand new trailer for the supernatural thriller, Poltergeist.
This summer, legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a suburban family’s fight to save their youngest daughter, when she is captured by the evil forces haunting their home.

Not scared enough by the first pictures from the Poltergeist reboot? The new trailer will fix that. One of several of 2015's upcoming horror movies, the 1985 classic has been reworked to give nightmares to a whole new generation. This version - which will be in 3D - stars Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt as parents of youngster Madison (Kennedi Clements), who disappears inside their newly purchased home. She's not just hiding under the bed, either. An evil spirit has taken ahold of the house, and it starts controlling things to scare the ever-loving crap out of its owners. Enter the medium, a role originated by Zelda Rubinstein and now played by Mad Men's Jared Harris. The trailer looks really fun (in a terrifying way), and the movie opens on July 31. Here's the original, as well. »

This time around, Monster House‘s Gil Kenan is in the director’s chair, and it’s understood that this modern incarnation will only use the original as a touching point, rather than simply cutting and pasting all of those effective haunted house tropes from thirty years ago. Mind you, Kenan’s reboot of-sorts will still be largely situated within the confinements of one old, haunted house.
Hoping to start a new chapter in their lives, it’s Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt young couple who move into said house, which effectively tips the first malevolent domino over and instigates a whole host of spine-chilling events. It’s not long before their daughter suddenly goes missing, abducted into the realm of all-things-evil, leaving the pair with no »

If you have a fear of clowns, you might want to avert your eyes for the scary new trailer for Poltergeist.
The 1983 horror classic gets a makeover for the brand new remake heading our way. While the crux of the story remains the same, the filmmakers have utilized today’s technology to deliver an even more frightening look at a suburban family’s nightmare.
Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt are the Bowens whose idyllic suburbia has been uprooted by unseen evil forces who have taken a shine to their youngest daughter. In order to save their family –and their sanity – the Bowens call in paranormal expert Carrigan Burke (Jared Harris) to help rid them of their household poltergeist.

"I want you all to clear your minds. They already know what scares ya." The second trailer for the Poltergeist remake has arrived, so prepare to clear your minds and watch more spirit-driven scares in the Bowen's haunted home.

Creepy clown dolls are never a good investment, as proven by the new trailer for the upcoming "Poltergeist" reboot.
That terrifying object is just one of many that will make you jump in this clip, which centers around the paranormal investigator (Jared Harris) who comes into the Bowen home to help them get back their daughter, Maddie (Kennedi Clements), who's been kidnapped by the titular tormentor.
"This isn't just a few pissed off spirits," Harris not-so-helpfully explains. "It's a poltergeist."
The spirit causes hallucinations, odd electrical surges, and objects to move freely about the house, preying up the Bowens' predisposed fears to make their lives a living hell. Harris urges the family to clear their minds (not unlike in "Ghostbusters," before Dan Aykroyd unwittingly summons the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man), though it seems the Bowens are still in for a world of trouble.

The first trailer for the new take on Poltergeist arrived back in February, offering the first proper look at the new family being bothered by some pesky supernatural troublemakers. Here’s the latest promo, which brings some new footage.This time around, the focus is on the Bowen family, dad Eric (Sam Rockwell), mum Amy (Rosemarie DeWitt) and kids Kendra (Saxon Sharbino), Griffin (Kyle Catlett) and Madison (Kennedi Clements), the latter of whom becomes the main focus of supernatural attention. Moving into a suburban home, they discover it needs a bit more than just a coat of paint and some new furniture: it’s also linked to the spirit world through a variety of portals. With director Gil Kenan wrangling the haunting action, this new film also features Evil Dead duo Sam Raimi as the producers, looking to ramp up the madness. Can overcome the natural suspicion that floats around reboots like an evil mist, »

Fox and MGM premiered a new trailer and poster for their upcoming Poltergeist remake, set to hit theaters on May 22 and starring Rosemarie DeWitt, Sam Rockwell, Jared Harris and Kyle Catlett. Directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House), this remake is said to "contemporize" the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever. I'm not sure how you "contemporize" the original, but perhaps the fact it's PG-13 and being released in 3-D is what they are referring to. Check out the new Poltergeist trailer and poster below and maybe you can help me out. sb id="1507079" height="360" width="640" »
