First Trailer for Amityville: The Awakening Starring Bella Thorne

22 August 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

That’s right, yet another Amityville Horror movie is in the works! While you might be questioning the necessity of an additional instalment in the franchise, one quick look at the first trailer for Amityville: The Awakening shows that this one has a lot of potential and should deliver a lot of scares.

The latest Amityville sees Blended star Bella Thorne take on a leading role in the movie which features her character moving into the infamous house with her mother and sister. They make that fateful decision when her brother is left comatose, and the twist here is that the house appears to be communicating with him!

It’s been a decade since the last movie (which starred Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George), and Amityville: The Awakening will be the twelfth film in the series after it kicked of with 1979′s classic. The cast also includes Cameron Monaghan, »

The 'Amityville: The Awakening' Trailer Will Keep You Up at Night (Video)

22 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Of all the horror franchises, one of the most bafflingly resilient is "The Amityville Horror." And the trailer for the latest film has just debuted and will probably send a chill or two down your spine.

The original film came out in 1979, starred Margot Kidder and James Brolin and was based on the controversial 1977 nonfiction best-seller by Jay Anson, who moved into 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York, and immediately claimed to be terrorized by otherworldly visitations. (These supernatural situations were supposedly connected to a mass murder that happened in the house in December 1975, when Ronalde DeFeo shot and killed six of his family members while they slept.) From that one, admittedly cheesy film (slime? Has slime ever been scary?), there were seven (!) sequels and a fairly straight-faced remake in 2005 that starred Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George. (There were even a couple of sequels after that; this new film is »

5 Australian pop-culture imports you should know

8 August 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Sick of explosion-filled blockbusters and snoozy summer reality TV? Here’s a solution: Try looking to the Southern Hemisphere to fill your entertainment needs. Several EW staffers have fallen under the spell of Australian TV and music, especially Josh Thomas’s charming comedy Please Like Me (which returns to Pivot on Friday at 10:30 p.m. Et).

And it’s not just people who write about this stuff for a living: A friend of mine is obsessed with Dance Academy, a teen drama that’s exactly what it sounds like (and is available for streaming on Netflix). Another swears by Australia’s Next Top Model, »

Emma Slade, Steve Kearney, Briget Callow-Wright heading for the UK’s Production Finance Market.

Sales agents from across the world yesterday voted New Zealand’s Emma Slade as the producer at the 37º South Market who most deserves a spot at the UK’s Production Finance Market (Pfm) in October, plus $1,860 (A$2,000) in travel assistance.

Runner-ups Steve Kearney and Bridget Callow-Wright from Australia also won places – but no cash.

Organizers said 2,203 meetings were held as part of the eighth edition of the co-financing film market, which is part of the business arm of the Melbourne International Film Festival (Miff).

Slade will be seeking a sales agent for The Love Of Humankind, the lead project in her slate, during her visit to London.

The “vodka-fuelled tragicomedy about unrequited love” is to be directed by comedian Danny Mulheron (Fresh Meat) from a script by he and Brian Sergent.

Joel Edgerton Does A Very Bad Thing In Trailer To Felony

13 July 2014 9:57 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Above is the first trailer for Felony, the latest Australian film featuring Joel Edgerton. Written by Edgerton and director Matthew Saville, the film concerns a cop who accidentally hits a boy in a car accident and attempts to cover up his involvement. Tom Wilkinson and Jail Courtney are the two cops who have to investigate, but one of them wants to go easy, and the other wants to get to the bottom of a troubling case. The trailer showcases a pretty tense battle of wits, as well as a few potential... spoilers? Edgerton's cop tells his wife (Melissa George) and, naturally, she is not happy. And Tom Wilkinson eventually finds out, but recognizes Edgerton as a good cop, but he doesn't want to press further. It's Jai Courtney, using his normal Australian accent, who wants to push things forward. Oh, Jai Courtney, always making things worse. If you aren't making »

Joel Edgerton Plays The Good Cop In Felony Trailer

8 July 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joel Edgerton has begun to carve out an excellent niche for himself the mainstream cinematic world. He’s had bang-up parts in Warrior, The Great Gatsby, and Zero Dark Thirty, and will soon be seen as the Pharaoh in Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings. Now, the actor has returned to his native Australia for his most recent film, the tense cop thriller Felony.

Edgerton plays Mal, a celebrated detective injured in the line of duty who ends up in a struggle between himself and two other detectives (Jai Courtney and Tom Wilkinson) over the truth about an accident that has placed a child in a coma. The trailer tells us everything we need to know – possibly even a little too much, given the nature of the film. Nevertheless, it gives a complete picture of the film and the possible routes that the narrative could take.

First Trailer for 'Felony' Has Arrived

8 July 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Austrailian crime drama Felony now has a trailer. The film features the talents of Joel Edgerton, Tom Wilkinson, Melissa George, and Jai Courtney. In the film, which has been playing well at various festival screenings, Edgerton plays narcotic detective Malcolm "Mal" Toohey. Injured in the line of duty, but still on the job, Toohey finds himself in a moral dilemma when he accidentally knocks a boy off his bike during a sleepy drive home. Does he report the accident, revealing himself to be the driver, or cover it up in an attempt to save his own career?

Edgerton also co-wrote the script. As of now, the film only has an Australian premiere set- which is August 28- but it's expected to get a wider, international release later on.

Watch: First International Trailer For Police Thriller 'Felony' Starring Joel Edgerton

8 July 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Unlike his “Warrior” co-star Tom Hardy, Australian actor Joel Edgerton has stuck to being part of smaller films and taking smaller roles like his outing as a member of Seal Team Six in “Zero Dark Thirty," Baz Luhrmann’s gaudy adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” notwithstanding. Edgerton’s latest is the Australian film “Felony” which, in addition to starring in, he both wrote and produced. The film’s first trailer and poster have both arrived online for your keen minds to investigate. Co-starring Jai Courtney (in his native accent), Tom Wilkinson and Melissa George, the thriller centers on Edgerton as celebrated detective Mal, who sets off a tense struggle between himself and two other detectives (Courtney and Wilkinson) over the truth of the accident that sent a child into a coma. While the trailer seems to spell things out a little too clearly, it does promise that the four leads »

Indie Trailer Sunday: 'Felony' Starring and Written by Joel Edgerton

22 June 2014 5:40 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"He didn't mean to do anything bad... I'll get you through this." Today's indie trailer that comes highly recommended is the official trailer for Matthew Saville's Felony, a little indie film written by, produced by and starring Joel Edgerton (last seen in The Great Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty, Odd Life of Timothy Green). He's joined by the always fierce Tom Wilkinson, Melissa George, and Jai Courtney in one of his best roles yet. Edgerton plays a cop who gets into big trouble in a late night accident, creating a troublesome situation at work and at home. I first caught this film at Tiff last year and it's solid, with a few strong performances and great score, hopefully it gets released. The trailer shows a lot, but doesn't ruin everything.

Director Fred Schepisi Talks Words And Pictures, Impacts of Modern Technology, Casting Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche, and Future Projects

21 May 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Love and war over the power of literature versus painting take center stage in Fred Schepisi’s witty romantic drama, Words and Pictures, opening in theaters May 23rd.  Battle lines are drawn when a prep school English teacher and one-time literary star Jack Marcus (Clive Owen) challenges a new teacher and once celebrated abstract painter Dina Delsanto (Juliette Binoche) to disprove his conviction that the art of the written word trumps the visual arts in its ability to convey meaning, ideas, and emotion.  The declaration of war galvanizes their students, but as Marcus and Delsanto square off, they suddenly realize they may have met their match. In an exclusive interview, Schepisi talked about the appeal of Gerald Dipego’s complex screenplay, the ways it touches on the impact of today’s technology and our obsession with social media, how he landed Owen and Binoche in the lead roles, the emotional »

11 May 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's just one week until the nation's biggest telly stars turn out for the TV BAFTAs, and in between prepping their acceptance speeches and practising their fake laughs for Graham Norton's opening monologue, they've also got to sort out their look for the red carpet.

Digital Spy recently attended a BAFTA showcase featuring the ceremony's official partners - House of Fraser, Mac Cosmetics, Carat* jewellery, celebrity hairdresser Mark Hill and St Tropez - for a sneak peek at this year's styles. What outfits, hairdos and makeup will the stars be rocking on the red carpet next Sunday (May 18)?

Of course, with any red carpet, the focus is on what the celebrity attendees are wearing. Backstage, it's the same story - a star's fashion choice will entirely dictate what direction the rest of the styling team go in.
