Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall Featured on New Poster for The Judge

28 August 2014 9:11 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Warner Bros. have released a new poster for The Judge, the upcoming thriller and family drama which sees Iron Man and Avengers Assemble star Robert Downey Jr. as a successful defence attorney who ends up battling it out with Fargo’s Billy Bob Thornton (in the courtroom) after he reluctantly returns home for his mother’s funeral.

It’s then that he discovers that his estranged father (The Godfather’s Robert Duvall), the town’s judge who now suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been accused of murder and is set to stand trial for the crime.

David Dobkin is directing the movie which marks the first project from Robert Downey Jr. and his wife/producing partner Susan Downey’s production company. The Judge is big departure for Dobkin compared to his previous work, and the recent trailer made it look a lot different to the likes of Fred Claus and Wedding Crashers! »

Robert Downey Jr. And Robert Duvall Defend Honor With New Poster For The Judge

27 August 2014 3:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Touching down at the Toronto International Film Festival next week for its world premiere is Warner Bros.The Judge, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall. While anticipation is certainly high, I can’t say yet that I’m particularly excited for this one. The trailer didn’t do much for me and despite the terrific actors in the lead roles, I’m not feeling too eager to go run out and see it.

That being said, I’m not discounting The Judge just yet. I’ll definitely catch it at some point while it’s playing at the festival and I’m curious to hear how audiences and critics react to it once it’s screened. After all, Downey Jr. is amongst the hottest actors in Hollywood right now and it seems like he simply cannot give a poor performance at this point. For his involvement alone, I think »

New Poster for Robert Downey Jr.'s The Judge

27 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Robert Downey Jr. just tweeted a first look at a new poster for his next movie, The Judge, in which he plays “a successful lawyer [who] returns to his hometown for his mother's funeral only to discover that his estranged father, the town's judge, is suspected of murder. He sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before.” Robert Duvall plays his father, the titular judge, as you can see from the poster. Downey is doing his standard look-up-my-nostrils pose, and we would say he needs to watch this tutorial, but he seems to be doing all right for himself, so we’ll let it slide.

The Judge isn’t the geekiest movie ever made (all right, it isn’t geeky at all), but we love Downey, and this is a passion project for him, so we hope it does well. »

New trailer for Annabelle is here to scare you

21 August 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

 I think we can all agree that porcelain dolls are in the upper echelon of scary things, right next to clowns and spiders. Child’s Play, PuppetMaster, Dead Silence, and Magic are just a few of the films that have scared the bejeezus out of us courtesy of their doll stars, but even they don’t hold a candle to Annabelle and the horrors she has in store for us.

The sort-of prequel to The Conjuring, keeps its plot close to its chest, but more details emerge in this new trailer which see the demonically-possessed Annabelle unleash a string of gruesome horrors upon a young couple and their newborn baby.

Loosely based on the case file of paranormal investigators the Warrens (played by Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson in The Conjuring), the real-life Annabelle was responsible for a number of unexplained and bloody goings-on in the 1970s.

Second 'Annabelle' Trailer Reveals 'The Conjuring' Doll Origins

21 August 2014 10:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After terrifying audiences in last year's thriller The Conjuring, a new trailer for the upcoming spin-off Annabelle showcases the origins of the haunted doll.

Years before paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in The Conjuring) captured Annabelle, John Form (Ward Horton) picks up this vintage doll as a gift for his wife Mia (Annabelle Wallis). Their lives unfold into a horrific nightmare when a satanic cult invades their home. Check out the latest footage from director John R. Leonetti's horror spin-off, which hits theaters October 3.

She terrified you in The Conjuring, but this is where it all began for Annabelle. Capable of unspeakable evil, the actual doll exists locked up in an occult museum in Connecticut-visited only by a priest who blesses her twice a month. New Line Cinema's supernatural thriller Annabelle begins before the evil was unleashed.

14 August 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Varèse Sarabande Records will release the Bates Motel - Original Television Series Soundtrack, featuring the original score composed by Chris Bacon, digitally and on CD August 25th. We have all the details you need right here.

Chris Bacon burst onto the film-scoring scene with his full throttled score for Duncan Jones’ hit thriller Source Code. He earned his first Emmy® Award Nomination for the underscore for the second half of NBC’s "Smash" Season 1.

His recent work includes the score to John Putch’s Atlas Shrugged II: The Strike, Season 2 of "Smash," and Stephen Gyllenhaal’s Sworn to Silence.

“In my early conversations with the show's producers about the score's direction, they made it clear that we are not trying to re-create or pay homage to the original Psycho, which was good news because that's one of the most iconic and recognizable scores of all time and my attempts to »

First Image From The Conjuring Spinoff Annabelle

8 August 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a dearth of enjoyable frightfests this summer, October should reward horror aficionados for their patience with a slew of promising titles. V/H/S Viral, Ouija, Housebound, Stonehearst Asylum, The ABCs of Death 2 and Horns will all be competing for moviegoers’ screams, but one title in particular seems to have the best shot at breaking out at the box office - Annabelle, a spinoff from horror hit The Conjuring that finds new characters menaced by the titular doll.

The first image from the film (above) doesn’t shed much light on what we can expect from Annabelle, which may or may not affect the events of The Conjuring 2, scheduled for October 23rd next year. Check out the synopsis below for some insight into the horrific happenings filmgoers can look forward to being petrified by.

Bates Motel Cast and Writers Talk Season 3

4 August 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in April, Bates Motel got the green light for a third season that is scheduled to air next year. At Comic Con, Daily Dead caught up with the show’s writers, Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, to see what they had in store for Season 3. Stars Vera Farmiga, Nestor Carbonell and Olivia Cooke also gave us their thoughts on their characters in Season 2 and where they’re headed.

Are there times when you have a lot of sympathy for Norma and, at the same time, hate her character? How do you feel playing such a dynamic character?

Vera Farmiga: I do, but that’s not important how I feel. I have been appointed as her court-appointed lawyer in her defence, so it doesn’t really matter how I feel. I know she does things wrong; they’re not the choices I would necessarily make as a mother. But »

Emmys 2014: Who Should Win Lead Actress in a Drama? Take Our Poll!

29 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

That old saying about “three’s a crowd” doesn’t apply to Emmy statuettes on your mantle. Which is exactly why Homeland‘s Claire Danes will be hoping to score her third consecutive win as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 2014 ceremony.

Coming off the Showtime thriller’s uneven third season, though, Danes is hardly a lock. Among her competitors are 2011 champ Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), who got left off the ballot in 2013 but roared back into contention this year with the CBS drama’s jaw-dropping, »

Carlton Cuse Will Create Colony For USA Network

29 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Apparently, the thing TV schedules most desperately need right now is another post-apocalyptic alien drama. So says USA Network, who have issued powerhouse producer Carlton Cuse with his second pilot order of the season, for Colony.

Former Lost writer, showrunner and executive producer Cuse counts Bates Motel, The Strain and The Returned among his post-island projects, as well as the recent pilot ordered by Amazon – Point Of Honor. Colony is his latest creation, which he will executive produce alongside Ryan Condal (Hercules). Described as a ‘naturalistic drama’, the show will follow a family in near-future Los Angeles, trying to stay together and survive under the occupation of external forces. It seems that some members of their community choose to collaborate with the occupiers, while others rebel and risk punishment.

Casting choices have yet to be announced for Colony, but the projects of Carlton Cuse have a tendency to attract impressive names. »

Bates Motel Cast, Ep Talk Norma's 'Innocence' and Romero's Backstory, Defend 'Desperate' Finale Kiss

28 July 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Norma and Norman Bates weren’t the only folks whose world views began to diverge during Season 2 of A&E’s Bates Motel.

As executive producer Kerry Ehrin told Michael Ausiello in TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con video suite, series stars Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore found themselves taking very different approaches to their scenes — i.e. their face-off in the parking lot outside the community theater — which wound up adding rich layers to their characters and performances.
