Movie Review – The Hollow (2016)

5 October 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollow, 2016.

Directed and Written by Miles Doleac.

Starring James Callis, Mile Doleac, Christiane Seidel, William Sadler, and William Forsythe.


When a Congressman’s daughter is killed in a triple homicide, Agent Vaughn Killinger (James Callis) gets assigned to Mississippi to investigate. His partner, Agent Sarah Desoto (Christiane Seidel), carries him through the case.

The series of circumstances that lead to the events of Miles Doleac’s, The Hollow, are pretty crazy to contemplate. Starting with a Congressman’s daughter being in the wrong place at the wrong time, for the FBI to be involved at all, three teenagers are senselessly killed and the adults around them are scrambling, not with grief, but over what collateral damage the FBI’s presence might dig up. It’s this fear of what could happen that leads to further bloodshed, but if anyone actually paid attention to the agents that have been sent to their small, »

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey’s original ending

4 September 2016 10:35 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 5, 2016

Director Peter Hewitt has been chatting about how the brilliant Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey was originally set to end...

There are few sequels of the past 30 years or so we love quite as much as Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, a legitimately excellent and very funny follow-up to Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.

The movie was directed by Peter Hewitt, taking over from Excellent Adventure’s Stephen Herek. And he’s been chatting with Bloody Disgusting, along with William Sadler (who, of course, played the Grim Reaper) about the movie. In particular, the ending of the film, which saw Bill & Ted save the world, sing God Gave Rock & Roll To You, and leave us with a montage of newspaper and magazine headlines to fill in the rest of the story.

However, the original title of the film was Bill & Ted Go To Hell, and there’s long »

Original Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey Ending Sounds Insane

2 September 2016 3:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this summer, the 1991 sequel Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey celebrated its 25th anniversary, with Shout! Factory releasing new Blu-ray editions of this and the original Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure later this month. Last year, we learned that the first Bill & Ted movie almost featured a time travelling van and a dog, but now we have details about the sequel, revealing what the original ending was before it was changed. There has always been evidence of a much different ending out there, but now director Peter Hewitt tells all in a new interview.

Bloody-Disgusting caught up with both Peter Hewitt and actor William Sadler at the Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival. William Sadler played the Grim Reaper in a beloved, breakthrough performance. The story followed Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter's title characters, who must defeat evil robots sent from the future to prevent them from winning the Battle of the Bands. »

Exclusive Interview with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez

21 June 2016 11:24 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Robert Rodriguez interview

Movie director Robert Rodriguez is one of our favourites. His resume includes DesperadoSin City, The FacultySpy Kids, From Dusk Till Dawn, Planet Terror and Machete, and eclectic range of genre films that all hit the right spot.

Rodriguez is somewhat of a maverick film director. He’s not one to play by the expected rules of the movie world, be that in what he puts on the screen or how he interacts with his peers. During his career he has left both the screen writers and directors guild in favour of blazing his own path. His latest venture has been to create his own television network ‘El Rey’ which caters to a Latin American audience.

He used the platform to bring back a project from his past From Dusk Till Dawn; the film starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as brothers and criminal Seth and Richard Gecko. »

3 May 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In just three short days, Captain America: Civil War will hit theaters nationwide, which is expected to open huge at the box office this weekend. This superhero adventure kicks off Marvel's expansive Phase 3 slate, by splitting this universe in half, with heroes going into battle against each other. Today we have two new clips, each of which showcases members of both sides, Team Cap and Team Iron Man, with brand new footage.

The first clip, courtesy of, features an extended look at an intriguing scene we've seen in the trailers, where Captain America (Chris Evans) uses his incredible strength to stop a helicopter from taking off. However, we never saw who was piloting this aircraft. Now, we can see clearly that it's The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) at the controls. Unfortunately, we don't get any context about why Cap is trying to stop Bucky from taking off, or »

Civil War Black Panther Clip, IMAX Preview and New Viral Video

29 April 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With exactly one week left until Marvel's Captain America: Civil War hits theaters, anticipation is higher than ever for this superhero adventure, which kicks off the studio's Phase 3 slate. Over the past few days, the studio has brought back Leslie Bibb as journalist Christine Everhart for a series of viral videos, that have examined the cost of The Avengers' heroic deeds, and who should pay for all of the damage they cause. Today we have yet another viral video, which teases that the Commander-in-Chief himself, in the McU, gave these heroes a shout-out.

In 2013's Iron Man 3, President Ellis (William Sadler) was saved by both Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and War Machine (Don Cheadle), so it should be no surprise that he is pro-Avengers. This Civil War viral video from Whih World News reveals that the President recently commended the efforts of these heroes, while the damages »

28 April 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"You have no idea what's going on here!" Lionsgate Premiere has debuted a trailer for a film called The Duel, formerly known as By Way of Helena, a western about a Texas Ranger who takes on an oppressive, violent preacher watching over a town. Liam Hemsworth plays the Ranger, and Woody Harrelson plays the evil pastor, and the two end up in a kind of standoff in this small town. The full cast includes Emory Cohen, William Hurt, Alice Braga, William Sadler, Benedict Samuel & Raphael Sbarge. This looks solid, but they do give away a big plot point in the trailer. Western fans might want to take a look. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kieran Darcy-Smith's The Duel, originally from In the Great Plains during 1880s, Texas Ranger David Kingston is sent to an Old West frontier town Helena to investigate a series of murders and disappearances of local people. »

After starring in all four Hunger Games movies together, as Gale and Haymitch, Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson are reuniting for a much different movie entitled The Duel. In the beloved Hunger Games franchise, both Gale and Haymitch were on the same side, as they fought to take down an evil tyrant, but The Duel pits these actors against each other, as you can see in the first trailer. Lionsgate Premiere has set a June 24 release date for The Duel, which puts it up against 20th Century Fox's Independence Day: Resurgence, Stx's Free State of Jones and Sony's The Shallows.

The Duel stars Liam Hemsworth as David Kingston, a Texas Ranger who investigates a series of murders in a small town led by a charismatic preacher named Abraham Brant, played by Woody Harrelson. However, the routine undercover investigation soon turns personal for the ranger who must solve the case before »
