Get those night lights ready because today's roundup is a little spookier than usual. We have a featurette, a trailer that just dropped, and a brand new poster!

Phoenix Forgotten looks like it could be the scariest film of the year. It tells the story of three teenagers who disappeared after mysterious lights appeared in Phoenix, Arizona. The film chronicles the unseen footage from their night on a fateful expedition that lead to their disappearance. Fans of films such as The Blair Witch Project will get their fix with Phoenix Forgotten, and probably won't be able to sleep for days.

5 Reasons Why We’re Living In a Golden Age of Genre Films

8 April 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Yes, it’s only April and there have already been a few horror movie duds, from the lifeless sequel “Rings” to the laughable “The Bye Bye Man,” but genre fans have other reasons to celebrate. The first quarter of 2017 has been filled with exciting developments for horror, science fiction and supernatural storytelling, with more promising twists around the corner. Of course, anyone watching the variety of international genre cinema showcased at film festivals around the world was never despairing in the first place, but there are years in which few strong genre movies cross over to a mainstream audience, while plenty of subpar examples cram the multiplexes.

This is not one of those times. From exciting commercial successes to new venues for showcasing first-rate work, 2017 is crammed with reasons why we’re living in a golden age of genre cinema. Here are a few of them.

Why Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ Is an Underappreciated Modern Classic

3 April 2017 9:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Can’t repeat the past? Why, of course you can… of course you can.”

If Jay Gatsby had been born 80 or 90 years later, he could easily have run a movie studio instead of running booze — after all, repeating the past seems to be all that Hollywood really does these days. Of course, the film industry has always sustained itself by transfiguring history into images and then embalming them as culture (that business approach is baked into the medium itself, which allows artists to paint with time as vividly as they might with color), but there’s a vast difference between revisiting our memories and resigning to them; there’s a vast difference between looking at a green light across a misty harbor, and being so mesmerized by the promise of its fading emerald glow that it obscures the possibility of all other futures.

Jennifer Lawrence’s Sexy ‘Red Sparrow’ Trailer Seduces CinemaCon

30 March 2017 11:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jennifer Lawrence’s upcoming “Red Sparrow” seduced audiences at CinemaCon on Thursday.

20th Century Fox used the exhibition industry trade show to debut a sexy first look at the upcoming Cold War thriller. The film follows Lawrence as a prima ballerina who breaks her leg. With her dancing career in jeopardy, Lawrence is recruited for a secretive Russian spy agency. There she falls in love with Joel Edgerton (glimpsed in a speedo).

“The two begin this cat and mouse seduction and fall in love, but you’re never really sure if the relationship is real and whose side you’re on,” said Emma Watts, Fox film vice chairman.

There’s gripping shots of Lawrence, rocking a backless dress walking up a long stairway and training in a remote mansion, situated in a snowy corner of Mother Russia. Charlotte Rampling looks to be a stand out as an emotionally remote spy chief. »

Exclusive: Why Michael Shannon Feels Lucky to Be Hollywood’s Most Reliable Supporting Actor

29 March 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Michael Shannon can easily be described as Hollywood’s secret weapon. He’s a reliable working actor whose versatility onscreen has seen him emerge from Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor to appear opposite Eminem in 8 Mile, earn an Oscar nomination in Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet’s highly anticipated onscreen reunion Revolutionary Road and walk away unscathed from Man of Steel, in which he played the critically panned blockbuster’s main baddie, General Zod. He’s repeatedly worked with directors that include Jeff Nichols, Liza Johnson, Michael Bay, Siofra Campbell and Werner Herzog.

In fact, Vulture even gave him that title in 2016 when he was promoting the back-to-back releases of Nocturnal Animals, which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting actor, and Loving, the latter of which most fans probably didn’t even realize he was in until the actor suddenly appeared onscreen as a photographer who captures the story of Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred »

‘Get Out’ Review

18 March 2017 7:32 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford, Catherine Keener, Caleb Landry Jones, Marcus Henderson, Betty Gabriel, Lakeith Stanfield, Stephen Root | Written and Directed by Jordan Peele

Blumhouse Productions is on something of a commercial and critical winning streak at the moment.  Aside from providing a platform for Joel Edgerton’s excellent The Gift, it is supporting the unique voice of Ti West, and has become the home of M. Night Shyamalan’s best work in years. Get Out, Jordan Peele’s directorial debut (after co-writing 2016 comedy Keanu), shares something of the latter’s love for weird humour and genre-dodging thrills.

Skins and Black Mirror actor Daniel Kaluuya plays Chris, the boyfriend of Rose (Allison Williams). She has convinced him to take a weekend in the country to visit her parents. Dean and Missy Armitage (Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener) are excruciatingly liberal and over-friendly from the moment they meet Chris. »

‘Moonlight’ to Stream on Amazon Prime Video Exclusively Under A24 Renewal

17 March 2017 7:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Moonlight,” this year’s Oscar winner for best picture, will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video under an extension of the ecommerce giant’s pact with studio A24.

The multiyear deal, an extension of the 2013 pact between the two companies, will continue to make Amazon Prime Video the only premium subscription service for all upcoming A24 films. However, the content agreement covers only the U.S. — so Prime Video members elsewhere won’t have access to the movies as part of their subscription.

Moonlight,” starring Mahershala Ali (“House of Cards”), will be available on Prime Video starting May 21 to U.S. members. »

Blumhouse and the risks of original genre filmmaking

16 March 2017 10:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Mar 17, 2017

As Get Out arrives in UK cinemas off its hugely successful Us debut, we look at the growing hit factor that is Blumhouse...

This article contains spoilers for Split.

It feels as if the more expensive a film is, the fewer risks the studio will allow. There are perks to having a bigger budget, but often, a low budget either allows or forces filmmakers to be more creative. As tentpoles and franchise properties fill up the movie calendar, producer Jason Blum's company Blumhouse Productions has reintroduced a little risk into Hollywood with its tried-and-tested production model.

Blumhouse is primarily known for horror films, but they dabble in a number of different genres, producing independent films on budgets of no more than $10 million, and usually under $5m, and then distributing them through the studio system. They emerged with the massive success of the micro-budgeted Paranormal Activity series »

Humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time

Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad) follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.

Scott Stuber to head Netflix original film initiative

14 March 2017 12:36 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

War Machine, First They Killed My Father, Bright among roster of titles scheduled to launch this year.

One of the biggest open secrets in Hollywood was confirmed on Tuesday as it emerged Scott Stuber, the former vice-chairman of worldwide production at Universal, will head Netflix’s original film initiative.

The appointment is a coup for deep-pocketed streaming service as it attempts to draw big names and big productions into the fold beyond those that are already lined up for release this year (see below).

Stuber had been courted for the top job at Paramount and will now lead the development, production and acquisition of Netflix’s growing slate of original films for a global subscriber base the company said currently numbered more than 93m.

The new hire most recently founded and ran Bluegrass Films, the Universal-based production company behind such hits as Ted, and Central Intelligence. Bluegrass will transition to partner Dylan Clark and continue its TV »

Jack Quaid and Matt Gerald Join Dwayne Johnson in ‘Rampage’ (Exclusive)

14 March 2017 11:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jack Quaid and Matt Gerald have closed deals to join New Line’s adaptation of the classic arcade game “Rampage” starring Dwayne Johnson.

The movie reunites Johnson with his “San Andreas” team of director Brad Peyton and producer Beau Flynn.

Plot details are being kept under wraps but, like the game, “Rampage” will feature three creatures — a monstrously transformed gorilla, crocodile and wolf — who wreak havoc on North American cities and landmarks.

Ryan Engle wrote the original draft, with work contributed by Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal. Adam Sztykiel did the most current revisions.

Flynn is producing with John Rickard via his Wrigley Pictures banner. Hiram Garcia, Johnson’s partner, is also producing through 7 Bucks Entertainment. Johnson, Marcus Viscidi, Jeff Fierson, and Dany Garcia are exec producing. Wendy Jacobson of Flynn Picture Co. is overseeing.

The movie opens April 20, 2018.

Quaid recently appeared in “Tragedy Girls,” which premiered at SXSW, and »

Who Are the Best Director-Actor Duos Working in Movies Today? — Critics Survey

13 March 2017 11:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “Personal Shopper,” which finds Olivier Assayas re-teaming with his “Clouds of Sils Maria” star Kristen Stewart, who is the best director / actor duo in the movies today?

Mark Harris (@markharrisnyc), Vulture and Film Comment

Every time Matthew Broderick shows up in a movie directed by Kenneth Lonergan, I smile. It might seem an odd choice given that Lonergan has directed just three movies (“You Can Count on Me,” “Margaret,” and “Manchester by the Sea”) in 17 years, and also given that Broderick has played only supporting roles in those films. But Lonergan understands Broderick so well — his haplessness, his beleaguered, flawed decency, »
