8 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Ryan Murphy has proven that stars are drawn to his series. Glee and Nip/Tuck each had their fair share of big names grace each series, but American Horror Story has drawn Oscar nominees like Kathy Bates alongside recognized names like Michael Chiklis, Stevie Nicks, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Zachary Quinto, Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes, James Cromwell, and of course Jessica Lange. With his true crime series American Crime Story yet to cast anyone, Murphy's upcoming Fox series Scream Queens »

The 35 Greatest Murder Mystery Movies Ever Made

28 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Murder mysteries are so commonplace on TV that each week offers seemingly dozens of them on police procedural series and detective shows. But in the movies, whodunits are surprisingly rare, and really good ones rarer still. There's really only a handful of movies that excel in offering the viewer the pleasure of solving the crime along with a charismatic sleuth, often with an all-star cast of suspects hamming it up as they try not to appear guilty.

One of the best was "Murder on the Orient Express," released 40 years ago this week, on November 24, 1974. Like many films adapted from Agatha Christie novels, this one featured an eccentric but meticulous investigator (in this case, Albert Finney as Belgian epicure Hercule Poirot), a glamorous and claustrophobic setting (here, the famous luxury train from Istanbul to Paris), and a tricky murder plot with an outrageous solution. The film won an Oscar for passenger »

'The Giver' Star Brenton Thwaites Joins 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5'

21 November 2014 12:17 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Production on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is getting closer with a start date of February planned in Australia, and that means it's time for the cast to start surfacing. We already know Johnny Depp will be back as Captain Jack Sparrow and Geoffrey Rush is also returning as Captain Barbossa with rumblings of Ian McShane possibly being back in the mix as well. New cast members include Javier Bardem as the film's villain, Captain Brand, a ghost bent on revenge against Sparrow, whom he holds responsible for the death of his brother, and now The Wrap has added The Giver star Brenton Thwaites. Details on Thwaites' character are sparse, but he'll be playing a British soldier named Henry. Maybe I'm reaching here, but Thwaites shares some prominent features with Orlando Bloom, who has also been rumored to re-enter the franchise as Will Turner again. Is »

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Casts Brenton Thwaites in Key Role

21 November 2014 11:51 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production scheduled to begin this February, the cast of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is starting to come together, with Brenton Thwaites in talks to star alongside Johnny Depp.

Brenton Thwaites is playing a British soldier named Henry. Although no further details were given for the character, Henry is said to be a key role and important to the storyline. We reported last month that the actor was in contention for this important character along with Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), George MacKay (Pride), Mitchell Hope (The Descendants), Ansel Elgort ( The Fault in Our Stars) and Sam Keeley (In the Heart of the Sea).

We also reported last month that Javier Bardem is in talks to play the villainous Captain Brand, a ghost seeking revenge against Captain Jack Sparrow, who he holds responsible for his brother's murder. Geoffrey Rush is expected to return as Barbosa, »

Hercules Blu-Ray Review

13 November 2014 9:18 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The single biggest flaw within director Brett Ratner’s vision of Hercules is one that came from a self-conscious decision to create a Hercules story that is grounded in reality. While that is an interesting concept, the frustration comes from the fact that the movie was marketed as a fantasy inspired adventure where the titular character completes the Twelve Labors. Instead, what we got is a movie that not only rushes through those trials and tribulations in a five minute montage opening sequence, but one that attempts to debunk every piece of mythology as the film goes on.

This means that the remaining 90 minutes or so are a painfully generic narrative about Hercules and his friends as a group of mercenaries for hire. Not exactly the kind of Hercules movie I imagine people wanted to see, especially when it stars Dwayne Johnson as the mythical demigod; a man who truly »

Ingrid Bols&#248 Berdal is only just starting to get the attention of moviegoers in America, after starring in Norwegian films such as Cold Prey, Cold Prey II and Escape. Following roles in American films such as Chernobyl Diaries and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, the actress is poised for a breakout, starring alongside global superstar Dwayne Johnson in Hercules, which debuts on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD November 4.

31 scary TV episodes that truly terrified us

30 October 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Twilight Zone to Penny Dreadful, Doctor Who and more, Den Of Geek’s writers revisit the TV episodes that truly terrify them…

It’s Halloween! Icicles are glistening from window sills. Chestnuts are roasting on open fires. North Pole elves are… hang on, no. None of that nice, fluffy stuff is happening. At Halloween, demonic creatures hunt for flesh, monsters creep out of their graves, and TV does its level best to freak us all the hell out.

In the spirit of all that, we asked our writers to select and share the TV episodes, horror or otherwise, that have made them whimper with fear. Here they all are, 31 of them, because, well, at Halloween, we like things to add up to 31.

Note that this isn’t a Top 10, or a Best Of, nor is it listed in order of scariness. It’s a collection of the particular »

25 October 2014 7:43 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Lionsgate released their new action/thriller flick, "John Wick," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was very entertaining, delivering tons of hardcore violent,action scenes, tons of drama, and more. The movie stars: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Dean Winters, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, John Leguizmo, and Willem Dafoe. In the new flick, character, John Wick, received a beautiful new puppy ,named Daisy, that was left for him by his deceased wife that he recently lost to cancer. He eventually bonds with the puppy and drives around a cool, vintage 1969 Mustang car. However, John has an encounter with a trio of Russian gang members at a gas station one day. Their leader ,Iosef, tries to make an offer to buy the Mustang, and John rudely tells him it's not for sale after he gets on his nerves. A few scenes later, »

Exclusive Video Interview With David Leitch And Chad Stahelski On John Wick

24 October 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Making your feature film debut isn’t the easiest feat, but it sure helps to be surrounded with actors like Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, Willem Dafoe, and Adrianne Palicki, who bring their A-game to every single scene. That was the scenario for David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, two veteran 2nd unit guys who decided to make the leap to 1st unit for their feature debut, John Wick. You’ve seen their action work in films like The Expendables 3 and The Matrix, but these guys wanted to prove they weren’t just 2nd unit specialists who couldn’t tackle bigger fish.

The action sequences in John Wick emphatically showcase the technical prowess of Leitch and Stahelski, a testament to their action work on numerous blockbuster films, but the duo also prove they can string together a fluid movie as well. A lot of the locations really pop off the screen, especially »

Film Review: Keanu Reeves in Ludicrous Premise as ‘John Wick’

24 October 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Keanu Reeves has been in a lot of dogs over the years, but rarely has he left such a high body count while avenging one of them. “John Wick” is a brutal revenge thriller where Reeves is a ex-mob enforcer who goes on a murderous rampage leaving blood on every doorstep to avenge the death of his dog.

Despite that chuckle-inducing premise, “John Wick” isn’t the dog I expected, but then again that’s not saying much.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Wick is another of those crime thrillers that begins at the end. We see Keanu crash his SUV, stumble out bleeding and then watch a video on his phone and pass out, and flashbacks ensue. In the interest of time we skip over his wife dying in a terse 5 minutes or so, while the next 20 are consumed by the sights of Reeves making coffee, grieving, and then getting a farewell »

Movie Review – John Wick (2014)

24 October 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Wick, 2014.

Directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski.

Starring Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Willem Dafoe, Adrianne Palicki, Bridget Moynahan, Dean Winters, John Leguizamo, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick.

Synopsis:

An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.

If there is one thing that John Wick proves, it’s that no matter how stupid a story sounds on paper, with proper execution anything can be entertaining. Seriously, a movie where Keanu Reeves plays an ex-gangster known as The Boogeyman who gets back into the game because mobsters murder his dog – the very last thing reminding him of his deceased wife – sounds like it was spat out by a random movie plot generator website. It is completely absurd but fortunately never once takes itself seriously after the narrative sets up the non-stop action.

Furthermore, the action of the film is unexpectedly quite good. »
