When it comes to films dealing with possession, exorcisms and exorcists, The Exorcist is generally the go-to title simply because, well, it's a masterful piece of cinema and, let's be honest here, exorcism films that pulse with evil, question your faith and scare the hell out of you are few and far between. With Deliver Us from Evil, Scott Derrickson' latest film, making its DVD, Blu-ray and VOD debut on October 28th, I thought I would call on a few friends to participate in a Choice Cuts group discussion.
Joining me for a conversation that focuses on recommended exorcism movies that are Not The Exorcist, I snagged Jen and Sylvia Soskas (aka "the Twisted Twins") and Crave Online's William Bibbiani.
The post Choice Cuts: Exorcism Movie Recommendations That Are Not The Exorcist appeared first on Shock Till You Drop. »

If you peruse the geeky side of the Internet, chances are you.ve run into a few articles about Marvel.s upcoming movie Doctor Strange. Set for release in 2016, the film is set to explore a whole new area of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

(Cbr) Yet another name has been conjured to potentially lead Marvel Studio’s "Doctor Strange" to the big screen. The Wrap reported Friday that Colin Farrell is now a frontrunner for the Sorcerer Supreme role, alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Keanu Reeves. The report comes on the heels of this week’s rumor that Ewan McGregor may also be up for the Strange role. This is the first time Farrell — who will soon begin shooting the second season of "True Detective" — has been mentioned as a possible lead for the film. Jared Leto, Justin Theroux, Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke are also apparently interested as well. However, The Wrap’s "Doctor Strange" casting roundup initially also still named Joaquin Phoenix as a frontrunner, despite talks breaking down between Phoenix and Marvel earlier this month. The same report also mentions that aside from once being in contention for Doctor Strange, Tom Hardy »

Colin Farrell is apparently the latest actor added to the mix when it comes to those being considered for the title role in Marvel's Doctor Strange. He joins names that include Benedict Cumberbatch, Keanu Reeves, Jared Leto and Justin Theroux. Scott Derrickson is directing for a July 8, 2016 release. The Wrap In a new interview director Guillermo del Toro says the first draft of Pacific Rim 2 is completed with an eye to start shooting around November next year. He also adds, "Some of your favorite characters come back, some others don't because we have decided that we're going to shoot ambitiously and say 'Let's hope we have three movies.' So some characters come in at the end of the second, hoping that it will ramp up on the third one." Collider Scarlett Johansson has reportedly been offered $10 million to star in the Rupert Sanders-directed adaptation of the Japanese »

Meanwhile Joaquin Phoenix's representative has scotched rumours he will play the neurosurgeon-turned-superhero saying, "talks are dead, dead, dead. A couple of weeks ago they mutually decided to part ways. It was over before the New York Film Festival."
He had previously been in talks before dropping out, but was said to be reconsidering.
A source told The Wrap that Farrell is being considered for the role, and confirmed the news that Reeves is also in the running.
The studio has apparently wanted to work with Benedict Cumberbatch for a while, especially following his appearances in Star Trek Into Darkness, The Imitation Game and 12 Years A Slave. But commitments to Sherlock »
There’s been yet another shift in the seemingly never-ending casting race for Marvel’s Doctor Strange. Just a few days ago, we learned that Marvel’s new shortlist included Matthew McConaughey, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ewan McGregor, Oscar Isaac, Jared Leto and Ethan Hawke. Then, on Friday, we heard that Ryan Gosling had actually taken a meeting with the studio for the titular role of Sorcerer Supreme.
Now, however, there seems to be a new list of frontrunners, which was reported by TheWrap late Friday night. The new names in Marvel’s crosshairs are apparently Colin Farrell, Keanu Reeves, Benedict Cumberbatch and… Joaquin Phoenix?!
Last we heard, Phoenix had gone so far as to enter final negotiations for the role, but eventually took his name out of the running as he was supposedly uncomfortable with the studio’s demands. The actor’s publicist insists that the talks with Marvel are, “dead dead dead, »

Stranger things have happened.
They will join several others already being considered including Jared Leto, Justin Theroux, Oscar Isaac and yes—Benedict Cumberbatch. For some unknown reason, TheWrap also mentioned Ryan Gosling’s name out there, but highly doubt he wants to part due to family obligations.

There was once a time when Marvel's Doctor Strange project was the more stable of the two new Phase 3 films in production, as Ant-Man had a cast but no director at the eleventh hour. While that is a rather problematic scenario to be in, it is perhaps even more of a problem when a director has been selected and there's no cast to put your film into action. This is what Scott Derrickson has to contend with at this point, with the role of Doctor Strange still vacant, but down to three big choices: Colin Farrell, Benedict Cumberbatch and Keanu Reeves. The Wrap has the official betting odds down to three high profile names, though it was four until long time frontrunner Joaquin Phoenix was removed from the running by his representatives. The three names still in play are previously hinted contenders Keanu Reeves and Benedict Cumberbatch, as well as »
Is there a man in Hollywood not already connected to the Marvel cinematic Universe that isn't being looked at for Doctor Strange? With Joaquin Phoenix's publicists confirming that all talks with the actor are dead, Marvel and Disney are casting a wide net to find their Stephen Strange. Today, they are adding Colin Farrell to a shortlist that has grown to become very long.
Previously rumored Benedict Cumberbatch is said to be at the top of this want list, and The Wrap confirms that Keanu Reeves is now officially in the mix after he publicly talked about the role with the press earlier in the week.
Marvel has no comment at this time, and its not known when we can expect an announcement.
The endless back and forth of super-hero casting speculation continues. Marvel studios has a release date strategy for “Dr. Strange." They have a script and a director, Scott Derrickson, in place. But they don't have a leading man yet, though they reportedly came close with Joaquin Phoenix before talks broke down. Now another new actor has emerged as a possible contender: Colin Farrell, who’s moving back up in the world after scoring a key role on the second season of “True Detective.” But apparently Phoenix is still in the conversation, as is Benedict Cumberbatch, who has mentioned for the role months ago. Other actors in contention? Keanu Reeves is apparently a legit player (beyond recent rumors) and Jared Leto, Justin Theroux, and Oscar Isaac all apparently want the rpart. Tom Hardy was mentioned early on, but apparently Fox is now eyeing him to play the titular villain of their "X-Men: Apocalypse. »

Ok, so things are getting a little out of hand with Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange. At this point, it would almost be easier to list the actors Marvel hasn't been rumored to be interested in to play the Sorcerer Supreme, all because Joaquin Phoenix decided to pass on the project. Tom Hardy was reportedly one of the actors Marvel was considering, however yesterday we learned he might be up for David Ayer's Suicide Squad, and now sources have told The Wrap »

“Probably my favorite thing about Ralph is his personal integrity. He definitely cares about the individuals.” Retired NYPD police officer Ralph Sarchie, the subject of Scott Derrickson’s Deliver Us From Evil, helps people who are plagued by demonic forces. Sony is releasing the exorcism film on home media soon, and we’ve been provided with an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip about Sarchie’s craft.
Deliver Us From Evil comes out on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital on October 28th with the following special features:

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has taken us to some pretty strange places so far: a rich arms dealer making a robotic suit of armour to fight international terrorism, a doctor with a serious anger management problem, a frozen soldier awakened fifty years later, an archer who for some reason is expected to keep up with a group of people with actual superpowers. Things are set to get even more odd once they race through the “doorway” into the supernatural parts of the Marvel Universe in the form of Doctor Strange.
Most of the information about the film so far has been speculation on who will take the title role of the Sorcerer Supreme, with everyone from Joaquin Phoenix to Ewan McGregor to Ryan Gosling apparently up for the part. Between those superstars being installed in the eponymous hero’s shoes and safe bet Scott Derrickson (whose 2012 horror flick »

Honestly, at this point, if you’re an A-list actor and haven’t been name-dropped in association with Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange, it’s time to get a new agent. As the superhero-centric studio continues to search for a recognizable star to cast in the role of the Sorcerer Supreme, Ryan Gosling recently became the latest actor to emerge as a potential candidate.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gosling has met with Marvel Studios to discuss starring in the tentpole. Doctor Strange is not the only project that the in-demand star has been eyeing, however – Warner Bros. is courting him to star in the David Ayer-directed Suicide Squad, which is up next for that studio after Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Gosling has also been offered the title role in Summit’s The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America’s First Superhero. So, as per usual, »

The actor is the latest to be considered to star in the supernatural film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Following Joaquin Phoenix dropping out of talks for the project, rumours have again begun to fly about who could play Sorcerer Supreme Stephen Strange.
Gosling has also been offered a role in The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America's First Superhero.
He is believed to be wanted for DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad as well, according to the report.
And so the Doctor Strange casting speculation continues. Yesterday, we brought you the news that the shortlist for the movie was down to six names. Turns out, it might be seven.
For joining Jake Gyllenhaal, Ethan Hawke, Oscar Isaac, Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey and Ewan McGregor on that list is now apparently Ryan Gosling. Gosling, according to The Hollywood Reporter, "has met with Marvel Studios to discuss starring in the title role in Doctor Strange".
That's still some way away from him landing said role, or wanting to play the part. Yet Gosling's name wasn't in the mix previously. It certainly is now.
One of the many actors notorious for not giving into the franchise machine is Ryan Gosling, but that may change as three major studios are courting him for three big movies, including Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad and The Secret Life of Houdini.
In the recent past, Ryan Gosling has refused to give into the temptations of a super hero movie, especially one that would require him to sign on for sequels. But the actor may be softening his stance on that, unlike Joaquin Phoenix who walked away from the Doctor Strange role.
The actor is confirmed to have met with Marvel for Doctor Strange, and he has an offer out for Summit's The Secret Life of Houdini, which is now subtitled The Making of America's First Superhero. Sources close to the actor also reveal that he is being aggressively courted for a role in the DC villain ensemble action-adventure Suicide Squad, »
Thus far, Ryan Gosling has managed to enjoy a successful career without starring in any franchise or studio tentpole films. His taste has varied nevertheless, ranging from moody dramas like Half Nelson and Drive to lighter films like Crazy, Stupid, Love. and Lars and the Real Girl. Gosling is currently gearing up to start filming writer/director Shane Black’s 1970s crime noir The Nice Guys opposite Russell Crowe, but the actor’s no-franchise status may soon be changing. Gosling is reportedly mulling over the possibility of starring in one of a trio of high-profile studio films: Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Summit’s The Secret Life of Houdini, and Warner Bros.’ DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad. More after the jump. The folks over at Heat Vision are reporting that Gosling is showing interest in making a franchise play by mulling over a lead role in three major films. Marvel is »

Not too long after rumors broke out that Ewan McGregor was in Marvel’s sights for Doctor Strange, Variety released the names of five other actors who are on the studio’s shortlist to play the Sorcerer Supreme. They back up the reports that place McGregor on the list, and add Jake Gyllenhaal, Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke and recent Oscar winners, Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey.
Leto’s name has been in the mix for quite some time now, while Hawke’s name surfaced just before Joaquin Phoenix was taken out of the equation. Gyllenhaal, Isaac, and McConaughey are the new additions, and exciting ones at that.
Variety states that Leto is “aggressively pursuing the mystical part… and despite being notoriously picky about his movie roles, appears ready to get back in front of the camera.” Gyllenhaal, meanwhile, is “quite interested in playing a superhero” after a string of darker »
