Fantasia 2014: Timur Bekmambetov Presents Computer Screen Horror Cybernatural [Trailer]

18 July 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Reading the headline from the news release for Cybernatural, the first thing that came to mind was how on earth I'd missed a new movie from Timur Bekmambetov. Turns out he isn't directing this bit of horror, only presenting. But I figure I'll give him the benefit and give this a go.

The story is straight forward: a bullied teen girl kills herself, the bullies feel bad and try to take down the offensive videos but can't because "On the internet, your sins live forever." Seriously, that's the tagline; it might be cheesy but it's also true...

Cybernatural apes Nacho Vigalondo's Open Windows (trailer) in style in that the entire movie a [Continued ...] »

18 July 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With far too many headlines of late showing the tragic consequences of online bullying and the perils of social media, it hasn't taken long for the film world to respond with movies like "Disconnect" and "uwantme2killhim?" exploring the consequences of a mouse click. But in the forthcoming "Cybernatural" that theme gets a horrific twist and we have the exclusive trailer to share with you today in advance of the film's World Premiere this weekend at the Fantasia Film Festival. Starring Shelley Hennig, Moses Storm, Renee Olstead, Will Peltz and Jacob Wysocki, directed by Leo Gabriadze and produced by Timur Bekmambetov, the film follows six high school kids who get an eerie message via Skype from a girl they bullied, who killed herself exactly one year earlier. And it's no prank, as the girl starts revealing the darkest secrets about each of them, and worse, she wants them dead. And »

The Definitive Foreign Language Horror Films: 50-41

7 July 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

English language film has long been a place for some of the greatest horror film directors of all time. All the way back to Alfred Hitchcock, we have seen the genre grow and develop sub-genres, thanks to the public’s ongoing thirst for fear and the possibility of danger around every turn. But, for every Saw or Hostel or terrible remake of classic English-language horror films, there are inventive, terrifying films made somewhere else that inspire and even outdo many of our best Western world horror films. This list will count down the fifty definitive horror films with a main language that isn’t English; some may have some English-language parts in them, but they are, for the most part, foreign. Enlighten yourself. Broaden your horizons. People can get murdered and tortured in every language.

50. Kuroneko (1968)

English Title: Black Cat

Directed by: Kaneto Shindo

Stalingrad Helmer Fedor Bondarchuk Snags Warner Bros.’ Greek Epic Odysseus

2 July 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first big-budget Russian blockbuster, WWII epic Stalingrad, was an absolutely stunning visual experience, and when it became the highest-grossing film in Russian cinematic history, it seemed pretty clear that we hadn’t heard the last of its director, Fedor Bondarchuk. Now, it appears that Warner Bros. has recruited the helmer to direct its big-budget Greek epic Odysseus, which aims to turn the classic tale transcribed in Homer’s The Odyssey into an action-packed spectacle.

Bondarchuk, the son of Oscar-winning helmer Sergei Bondarchuk (who received the Best Foreign Film Oscar for his movie War and Peace back in 1968), made Stalingrad for around $30 million, and the flick went on to gross $66 million, setting records in Russia. It was also the first Russian movie to be shot in IMAX 3D. Despite Stalingrad featuring a huge amount of battle sequences, Bondarchuk kept the budget low by staging everything without the use of green screen or extensive special effects, »

The Montreal-based Fantasia International Film Festival is gearing up to run again this year from July 17th-August 5th, and having already boasted a very impressive first wave of films (including a special presentation of James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy), the second wave of films has now been announced, making the festival sounds like an even more impressive place to be next month. We’ve combined the two announcements into one, just to give you fright fiends a glimpse at the awesome list of titles coming to festival goers next month.

First Wave:

Opening Film: Jacky In The Kingdom Of Women (Jacky Au Royaume Des Filles)

Russian 'leaders' pitch projects to Rcf

26 June 2014 5:07 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

31 projects were presented by nine Russian production houses at a pitching to the Russian Cinema Fund.

Russia’s answer to Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity and an updated, Russian-set adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost were among the 31 film projects presented by nine Russian production houses - the so-called ‘leaders’ - at a pitching to the Russian Cinema Fund (Rcf) this week.

An expert committee gave each of the 31 projects a rating, but the final decision on how much production support - and whether it is a subsidy or conditionally repayable loan - will be decided by the Rcf later in the year.

Sergey Selyanov’s St Petersburg-based Ctb is behind the “first Russian space thriller”, Salyut 7, which would be based on the true story of the rescue mission for the orbital station in 1985. The film is budgeted at RUB320m and Ctb is looking to receive RUB150m from the Cinema Fund.

Bondarchuk prepared to bleep obscenities

25 June 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Leading Russian actor-director-producer Fyodor Bondarchuk has indicated that he is prepared to bleep out the obscenities in Valeria Gai Germanika’s new film Yes And Yes (Da I Da) to ensure its Russian theatrical release.

Speaking at a press conference at the Moscow International Film Festival (Miff) this morning (June 25) ahead of the European premiere of Yes And Yes in the Main Competition, Bondarchuk said that he ¨hoped¨ to get a distribution certificate for the film tomorrow.

“I don’t know about the cursing, but we have agreed to put in bleeps if there is no other way [for the film to be released] if the new obscenity law applies to this film,” said Bondarchuk.

“We are still waiting for clarification about the situation for films made before when the law comes into effect on July 1. I will know more on Thursday.”

Exclusive: Veteran UK producer Patrick Cassavetti has boarded Marat Alykulov’s black comedy Lenin?!.

Cassavetti, producer on Terry Gilliam’s Brazil and Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas - agreed to become executive producer on the Kyrgyzstani project following talks in Cannes last month.

Speaking exclusively to ScreenDaily at this year’s Moscow Business Square (Mbs), producer Joanna Bence of Curb Denizen Productions said that Cassavetti will also offer new ‘perks’ to the ‘Help Bury Lenin?!’ crowdfunding campaign by giving burgeoning filmmakers the chance to receive personal feedback on their past or upcoming productions.

Bence also revealed that German-born, London-based DoP Stephan Bookas - who has worked on Maleficent and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy - is confirmed as cinematographer for the project, which was pitched at the Mbs’s co-production forum last year after having been presented at Busan’s Asian Project Market and Connecting Cottbus in autumn 2012.

Paramount Announces 'Transformers 5,' 'Star Trek 3,' and 'GI Joe 3' 2016 Release Dates

19 June 2014 1:17 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

2016 is going to be a big year for Paramount. The studio announced the tentpoles it is planning to release, during the screening of Transformers: Age of Extinction at the CineEurope convention overseas.

Paramount confirmed plans for a whole set of blockbusters including Transformers 5, Beverly Hills Cop 4, Star Trek 3, and G.I. Joe 3.

Beverly Hills Cop 4 will be directed by Brett Ratner, with Eddie Murphy set to star. As we've heard many times before, Star Trek 3 will be helmed by Roberto Orci (without his other half), while Jon Chu will direct G.I. Joe 3.

The studio also revealed plans to make a sequel to Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, which is sort of odd since the film didn't do so well domestically. Also, there's another Paranormal Activity movie on the way (no surprise there); plus a remake of Ben-Hur, set to be directed by Timur Bekmambetov. »
