The Big Bang Theory close to two-season renewal

16 February 2017 1:29 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like we can expect to see plenty more of The Big Bang Theory, with Deadline reporting that CBS is close to finalising new deals with stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar which will see the hit sitcom renewed for a further two seasons.

The site reports that all five of the original stars will be receiving financial parity in a deal that’s said to be worth around $1 million apiece each episode. Once the contracts have been signed, CBS will then start negotiating with Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik, who are expected to receive major salary increases from their current deal of around $175,000 per episode.

In addition to the main show, CBS and Warner Bros. TV are also developing a spinoff prequel entitled Sheldon, which will see a younger actor taking on the role played by Jim Parsons.

‘Rings’ Review

10 February 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz, Alex Roe, Johnny Galecki, Vincent D’Onofrio, Aimee Teegarden, Bonnie Morgan, Chuck David Willis, Patrick R. Walker, Zach Roerig. Laura Wiggins, Lizzie Brocheré, Randall Taylor | Written by David Loucks, Jacob Estes, Akiva Goldsman | Directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez

First you watch it, then you die. Except in this case, it’s been a good ten years since vengeful VHS spirit Samara last got to kill anyone, her career floundering to a halt after the dull and unsuccessful The Ring 2. No-one did watch, and so Samara pretty much died with it.

You can’t keep a good horror icon down though, and America’s version of Sadako returns in Rings, bringing with her a remake of her own movie. It’s the new version of her haunted videotape which drives this belated sequel, sending doomed young romantic Skye on a quest to Samara’s hometown, »

Box Office Democracy: Rings

7 February 2017 1:00 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Most of the time when a studio looks to revive or remake an old property it’s a desperate grasp for more money, but I’m willing to give the people behind Rings a little more credit than that.  The Ring is about a shared video, and the ways in which we share and consume videos has changed so much in the 15 years since the original came out.  Rings exists to carry the franchise into the YouTube era, and it pays off on a lot of the promise offered by the new technology (although not actually YouTube which was strange).  Rings is a clever movie, but clever isn’t enough on its own— and unfortunately, clever is all Rings has.

I absolutely adored the use of new technology.  There’s a sequence where Samara emerges from a flat screen TV that has fallen face down on the floor that never »

Rings Review

7 February 2017 5:25 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Daniel Goodwin

When film series’ dissipate it is sometimes difficult to tell whether one is watching a sequel, remake, spin-off, re-imagining or something else entirely. Horror franchises are probably the most guilty of doing this, with every decade spawning new icons for studios to saturate throughout cinemas. George Romero’s zombie/ dead series crossed the streams with sequels to the original trilogy and their remakes arriving simultaneously while classic characters are incessantly reworked for new generations. Now the Ring films follows suit with new sequel, Rings just arrived and Ju-on crossover Sadako Vs Kayako, still due an official UK release.

For anyone unfamiliar with the origin story: a young girl is buried alive at the bottom of a well. Her spirit possesses a videotape. Anyone who watches the tape receives a phone-call informing them that they have a week to live. The girl appears to the cursed cassette watchers seven days later, »

Horror Highlights: Q&A with Dead West Director Jeff Ferrell, Rings, The Burningmoore Deaths

6 February 2017 8:37 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Revenge never dies” in Dead West, the new film from writer/director Jeff Ferrell. And with the road trip revenge thriller coming out on DVD via Rlj Entertainment this Tuesday, we caught up with Ferrell for our latest Q&A feature. In today’s Horror Highlights, we also have photos from last week’s Los Angeles fan screening of Rings and the trailer and release details for The Burningmoore Deaths.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Jeff. How and when did you first come up with the idea for Dead West?

Jeff Ferrell: The idea for Dead West was born during the shooting of my first movie, Ghostlight. One night after filming, I was with the lead actor, Brian Sutherland, in his hotel room. We were drinking beers and throwing ideas around, when he suddenly said, “I really wanna play a serial killer. Write »

Split Beats Rings, Wins Box Office 3rd Weekend in a Row

5 February 2017 11:35 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most box office analysts predicted that Split would fail to win for a third weekend in a row, going up against Paramount's Rings and Stx Entertainment's The Space Between Us. A surprisingly small third frame decline and an underperforming crop of newcomers lead to Split winning for a third weekend in a row with $14.5 million. Its domestic total now stands at $98.7 million, with a worldwide haul of $142.7 million from just a $9 million budget.

Director M. Night Shyamalan's Split has already surpassed the totals for his last low-budget thriller, The Visit, which earned $65.2 million domestically and $98.4 million worldwide from just a $5 million budget in the fall of 2015. While it was a fairly close race, Rings came in a somewhat close second place with $13 million, debuting in 2,931 theaters for a middling $4,435 per-screen average, according to Box Office Mojo. Rings' debut failed to surpass both of its predecessors, with 2002's The Ring opening with $15 million, »

Rings review: Dir. F. Javier Gutiérrez (2017)

4 February 2017 2:13 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rings review: Samara Morgan and her haunted video tape get a digital upload in the latest Ring film, aptly titled Rings.

Rings review by Kat Hughes, February 2017.

1998 saw Japan introduce one of the creepiest horror icons in history, Sadako. The character came from Ringu, directed by Hideo Nakata, which told the story of a haunted video cassette. The film was sinister and chilling, and has had countless sequels and crossovers, as well as two American versions. Now comes a third American outing, this one twelve years since the last, featuring Sadako’s Us counterpart, Samara, once more.

This time around Samara has had a digital upgrade as The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki foolishly decides it’d be a good idea to upload that creepy video online and study it. It’s down to young woman Julia (Matilda Lutz) to solve the mystery of Samara after she is persuaded »
