On tap right now is some beautiful artwork for Dread Central alum and fave Axelle Carolyn's latest film, Soulmate. This artwork comes courtesy of the uber-talented Graham Humphreys (who made the well-known UK posters for Nightmare on Elm Street and Evil Dead II). Dig it!
The supernatural thriller stars Anna Walton (Hellboy 2), Tom Wisdom (300), Nick Brimble (A Knight’s Tale), and Emma Cleasby (Dog Soldiers) and marks the feature debut of director Axelle Carolyn, who has acted in Neil Marshall’s Centurion and Doomsday. Carolyn also penned the script.
Soulmate follows a young woman who retreats to a remote cottage after a failed suicide attempt. She soon discovers the cottage is haunted by its previous owner but decides to remain, hoping to find comfort in the ghost.

Thanks to a script leak (via Shock Till You Drop) for the upcoming pilot for NBC’s take on fan-favourite DC Comics character John Constantine, we now know a little about what to expect from the second attempt to bring Constantine to the screen.
Since appearing with an unfamiliar Californian surfer drawl, and dark hair in the hugely disappointing movie adaptation that cast Keanu Reeves as the traditionally golden haired demon slayer from Liverpool (who was designed to look like Sting, rather than Theodore Logan grown up) the character has been spoken of in the same hushed tones as The Punisher, Preacher and to a lesser degree Spawn. Surely someone, somewhere would realise the potential of bringing the character to life on screen, even with the sins of the first attempt?

The television world is opening its arms to John Constantine, the beloved DC comic book character who has graced the screen once (in a film with Keanu Reeves) and is getting his own series, appropriately entitled Constantine. David Goyer and Daniel Cerone penned the pilot which is being directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones). Matt Singer plays the eponymous supernatural investigator; he's joined by Lucy Griffiths, Harold Perrineau and Charles Hafford.

Director: Elliot Goldner.
Running Time: 89 Minutes.
Synopsis: Three paranormal investigators for the Vatican must work together to work out if a rural English church was visited by God, or if it’s the ramblings of a desperate priest. Once onsite, they realise that things may not be quite what they seem.
British films have come a long way in the last couple of decades and thanks to the likes of Neil Marshall, we also have a steady trickle of horror coming out of our fair isle, with the latest being Elliot Goldner’s The Borderlands.
The Borderlands is an intense, found-footage based film that follows a deacon, a priest and a tech-specialist, who all work for the Vatican and are investigating another in a long line of potentially hoaxed miracles.
The premise has been covered countless times in films such as Red Lights, »

While werewolves aren’t exactly my favorite horror monster, I still get excited about a properly crafted werewolf flick because they’re so hard to come by. My favorite recent howler dates all the way back to Neil Marshall’s Dog Soldiers, a 2002 military creature feature, but Adrián García Bogliano’s Late Phases begs for similar attention, finally filling the “hot dog down a hallway” sized void that movies like The Wolfman left open.
Taking cues from geriatric zombie film Cockneys Vs. Zombies, Under The Bed scribe Eric Stolze transforms grey haired grandparents into hairy grey wolfbeasts, as a rural senior citizen complex witness a slew of unsolved animal attacks, creating openings quicker than Death himself. A fun little indie horror flick, you’ll enjoy the hell out of one man’s fight to keep supernatural creatures off his lawn – preventing his own gruesome death.
While getting old is certainly no fun, »

Executives from Warner Bros and Odeon have expressed the need to win back trust in 3D family films, while research shows China is set to lead the 3D market by the end of 2014.
“Our experience of how 3D is declining in this market is primarily in animation,” Neil Marshall, VP and deputy MD of Warner Bros Pictures International UK, told delegates at the 3D Creative Summit in London.
“If you look back at titles like Toy Story 3 and Despicable Me, I think they did around 75% and 60% respectively in 3D. Looking at today’s market, a title like Frozen is on around 25% and Despicable Me 2 around 27%.”
He added that Warner Bros action and event movies are holding steady with around 50% of the box office coming from 3D.
“We need to regain the trust and confidence in the family market,” stated Claire Beswick, senior film booker and head of IMAX programming for Odeon cinemas. “We’re turning »

Yes…you saw right. That’s John Constantine.
So NBC’s pilot for Constantine is picking up speed. After news that Matt Ryan will be playing the chain-smoking sorcerer, David S. Goyer, Daniel Cerone, Neil Marshall and their team have revealed how John Constantine will look.
We’re quite impressed so far, and we reckon Hellblazer fans should be too. John looks suitably cynical and cocky and his tie looks just about sloppy enough. And that’s cigarette smoke floating round him, right? Of course, no actual cigarette. I mean, this is 2014 and everyone smokes those electronic cigarettes now don’t they?
A good effort so far. What else could a Hellblazer devotee want? Well, apart from hard-hitting story lines, fantastic acting and a decent script… Time will tell.

Earlier today we brought you a behind-the-scenes image from the Constantine TV pilot which gave us our first look at Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) as the title character, and now we've got an official promo image of DC's supernatural detective, which you can see right here...
Constantine has been written by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel) and Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist), with Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) directing a pilot that sees Ryan joined in the cast by Harold Perrineau (Lost), Lucy Griffiths (Winter's Tale) and Charles Halford (True Detective).

When it comes to so-called "guilty pleasures", one of mine is 2005's Constantine. I thought Keanu Reeves' wooden style of acting fit the character and I'm a fan of stories playing with religion and the idea of angels and demons, I think it makes for interesting cinema and I'm sort of a sucker for such films. I recognize Constantine has its flaws, but I thought a lot of the story, production design and even a fun performance from Gavin Rossdale as Balthazar worked for me. Now, NBC is taking the DC/Vertigo character to television with Matt Ryan ("Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior") as the lead character and just below is your first official look at Ryan in costume. In a press release producer David S. Goyer said of the upcoming series, "I've been a fan of John Constantine since he was first introduced in 1985... This Constantine, envisioned by Neil Marshall »

As production begins on the new pilot Constantine - from executive producers Daniel Cerone & David S. Goyer and director Neil Marshall - NBC, Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment are today releasing the first official image of series star Matt Ryan in character as John Constantine.
Here's what executive producer David S. Goyer had to say about this new version of the popular character in a statement.
"I've been a fan of John Constantine since he was first introduced in 1985. This Constantine, envisioned by Neil Marshall and embodied by Matt Ryan, looks like he sprang directly from the comics' covers. Fans old and new are going to be in for a treat."
Constantine follows enigmatic and irreverent Liverpool con-man-turned-occult-detective John Constantine, who is reluctantly thrust into the role of defending our world against dark forces from beyond.
Here’s the first pic of DC Comics’ occult detective John Constantine (aka British actor Matt Ryan) as he appears in NBC’s new pilot Constantine - thankfully looking nothing like Keanu Reeves, but a hell of a lot more like his comic book counterpart.
Based on the Hellblazer and Constantine comics, the show comes from Daniel Cerone and Dark Knight/Man Of Steel writer David S Goyer. The pilot is being helmed by British director Neil Marshall (The Descent).

Great news today, kids. In fact, two pieces of great news, both about the NBC pilot Constantine. As I continually warn, when I report about pilots it’s always with the concern that hopes are being raised only to be dashed; that the pilot gets made but never picked up.
Well the two pieces of great news are one and the same: NBC, Warner Bros. Television, and DC Entertainment have released the first look at Matt Ryan as Constantine. The fact that they are publicly talking about the pilot gives me great hope that the series will be picked up, and that is great news. The other great news is the exceptionally cool pic:

NBC has released the first official imagine of the new star of "Constantine" and he looks precious little like Keanu Reeves. The latest adaptation of the popular DC Comics occult series features Matt Ryan, who you might know from "Layer Cake" and "Torchwood," but you don't know as the quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons. Don't make that mistake! John Constantine first debuted as a supporting character in DC's "Swamp Thing" series in 1985 and went on to be the centerpiece of his own "Hellblazer" and "Constantine" lines. When he isn't being played by Reeves, the character is a former Liverpool con-man who now helps defend our world against supernatural beasties and whatnot. David S. Goyer is producing the new "Constantine" and cracked the story with Daniel Cerone ("Dexter"), who wrote the script. Neil Marshall ("Game of Thrones," "The Descent") is directing the pilot, a Warner Brothers TV production. "I’ve been »

This is our first official photo of Matt Ryan as John Constantine in the upcoming NBC series based on the DC/Vertigo character. I have to say the guy looks like an asshole so he should fit the character just fine. This series is supposed to follow the comic book more closely than the movie did, so that should give fans something to look forward to. Executive producer David S. Goyer had this to say in a statement,
"I've been a fan of John Constantine since he was first introduced in 1985. This Constantine, envisioned by Neil Marshall and embodied by Matt Ryan, looks like he sprang directly from the comics’'covers. Fans old and new are going to be in for a treat."

That didn’t take long. We recently brought word that a pilot episode for a Constantine TV series was given the green light over at NBC, with Matt Ryan starring as John Constantine. The pilot is now filming and NBC has released the first official image of the new Constantine.
“John Constantine is described as a working-class Londoner with rakish good looks, scruffy blond hair, deadpan humor, and signature trench coat, who has been studying the dark arts since he was a teenager. When the daughter of a late friend is targeted by demons, Constantine steps in to save her.”
The pilot story comes from Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist), who worked on the script with David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies). The two will also serve as executive producers on the project. Neil Marshall (The Descent, Doomsday) is directing the pilot episode.
