It’s a fate worse than any Blockbuster late fee from back in the day: if you watch the tape, you die one week later at the hands of Samara Morgan, the black-haired ghost girl who needs no help getting out of the well she calls home. Last July, it was revealed that F. Javier Gutiérrez will direct the next Ring movie (referred to then as The Ring 3) from Paramount Pictures, and now the film’s new, official name and first cast member have been revealed.
TheWrap reports that Paramount’s upcoming Ring movie is titled Rings and will star Matilda Lutz in the lead role. A reboot of sorts due to the fact that Naomi Watts (who starred in 2002’s The Ring and 2005’s The Ring Two as Rachel Keller) will not return for this next installment, Rings will see Samara once again serving as the eerie antagonist »

The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation has announced the nominations for the 35th annual Razzie Awards. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Legend of Hercules, and Transformers 4: Age of Ex-stink-Tion are leading the nominations for worst movies of the year. The only name I don't think belongs on this list of nominations is Mel Gibson for his role in The Expendables 3, because he was freakin' awesome in that!
You can check out the full announcement below, followed by the nominations list. Look it over and let us know if you agree with what they claim is the worst of 2014.
Hollywood was not happy with box office returns for 2014, their lowest-grossing year in recent history. Despite a handful of high-grossing hits, there were way more major misses — movies based on recycled premises and re-worked concepts that were already tired a decade or more ago, the cinematic equivalent of re-treaded tires. »

Before Christmas, we called your attention to a fascinating look behind the scenes at the post-production process of Transformers: Age of Extinction, which director Michael Bay is heavily involved in. Even though the may have been disappointing (at least for me), even as an action-fest that we've come to expect from Bay, watching the filmmaker work is always a treat. And now another featuette has emerged online that has Bay talking about how he directs an action scene. And this isn't just a short promo featurette, but a longer 11-minute glimpse into the mind of Bay and how he builds an action scene for the big screen. As you can imagine, Bay is intense, but hearing him talk about action in this excited manner is inspiring in a way. Here's "Bay on Action" from the Transformers: Age of Extinction Blu-Ray (via Michael Bay): Michael Bay directed Transformers: Age of Extinction, »

Hollywood was not happy with box office returns for 2014, their lowest-grossing year in recent history. Despite a handful of high-grossing hits, there were way more major misses - movies based on recycled premises and re-worked concepts that were already tired a decade or more ago, the cinematic equivalent of re-treaded tires. Those are the films The Golden Raspberry Awards have annually "saluted" since 1980.
Nominees for the 35th Annual Razzie Awards, satirizing the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014, include new names and several Repeat Offenders, returning for more pie-in-the-face/light-hearted joshing by the one Tinsel Town trophy derby no one sets out to win. And, in a new spin on the entire Razzie concept, this year launches a new category acknowledging that past nominees and "winners" can (and often do) go on to far far better things. Contenders for the inaugural Razzie Redeemer Award include Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Mike Myers, »
Nominations for the 35th annual Razzie Awards, which satirize “the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014,” are out. Transformers: Age Of Extinction leads the field with seven; while Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and The Legend Of Hercules are tied at six nods each.
As usual, the Razzie races were unveiled one day before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces its picks for the best achievements of the year in film. But are the Razzies softening at 35? A new category has been added this year for the Razzie Redeemer Award, which acknowledges “that past nominees and ‘winners’ can (and often do) go on to far far better things.” The inaugural class includes Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston and Kristen Stewart.
