A Fifth Invasion Of The Body Snatchers Movie Is Headed Our Way

23 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Invasion Of The Body Snatchers is undoubtedly one of the most iconic stories in science fiction, which is perhaps why it’s been resurrected in cinema on a semi-regular basis. Since the first version of the tale arrived in theatres in 1956, we’ve seen a further three takes on that same narrative – some attempting to apply the social concerns of the time to the themes explored in the story. Now, we have a fifth heading our way, and this one comes from Warner Bros.

The source material is the 1955 novel The Body Snatchers, by Jack Finney – which began life as a serial published in Colliers Magazine in 1954. For those unfamiliar, the story sees alien seeds drift to Earth through space, and grow emotionally void clones of unsuspecting town residents while they sleep. The residents are then turned to dust, and the clones replace them in their community. The clones do not reproduce, »

A Few Little Known Facts about Gambling in Films

14 July 2017 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Movies set around casinos and gambling have mostly been a fair bet to success for the film industry. The drama and tension that naturally occurs within a gaming environment, and that can include the glitz and glamour of a big Las Vegas Casino, or the smoke filled back room, transfers over to the silver screen very well.

The opulent feel of the casino has always intrigued gamblers and spectators alike, and as soon as technology advanced far enough online casinos made their appearance. Now statistically more people user their mobile phone to play on their favourite  games on sites like Swanky Bingo online which provide that feeling of excitement and entertainment we all crave whenever and wherever we choose.

The history of gambling and casinos is a fascinating one, and so are the not so well known facts that surround some of our most favourite films set in and about casino life. »

Quentin Tarantino Wants Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence For New Movie, And They Shouldn’t Resist

12 July 2017 9:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Quentin Tarantino comes knocking, you answer the door. If that’s not an unspoken rule among Hollywood actors, then it very well should be. Tarantino has given movie history badass female protagonists like The Bride and Jackie Brown and wicked villains like Hans Landa and Calvin Candy. Even his cameos often pack more of a wallop than other director’s leading roles (see Michael Parks in “Kill Bill Vol. 2” and Jonah Hill in “Django Unchained”). All of this is to say the obvious: Tarantino creates unforgettable characters, and it wouldn’t be in your best interest to pass on it.

Tarantino is prepping his ninth feature, and if his earlier claim that he’ll retire after 10 films, this one will be his penultimate movie. Working once again with Bob and Harvey Weinstein, »
