While Scream Factory has earned the reputation for putting out fan-favorites and long lost genre films, one of the many things that impresses me on a regular basis, is how good the films they acquire or release via their partnership with IFC Midnight are. Films like The Babadook, Extraterrestrial, and now two of the most intense and entertaining films of this year, Backcountry and The Harvest. We thought we’d take a look at both films, and give you the rundown on each one, and whether or not the killer bear antics of Backcountry or the crazed parents of The Harvest make for good additions to your collection.
While the premise of a young couple hunted by a killer bear might seem like something of exploitation or silliness, Backcountry is anything but. The film, which revolves around a young couple played by Rookie Blue & Reaper‘s Missy Peregrym and Jeff Roop, »

Back in July we saw a first poster and red band trailer for the upcoming yuletide comedy The Night Before starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anthony Mackie [watch it here], and now Sony has debuted a new green band trailer, which we’ve got below after the official synopsis…
From the acclaimed director of 50/50, comes the new comedy The Night Before. Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.

Can you believe it’s September folks? It’s actually now the fall festival season, which means that it’s also officially awards season. I think this month is one of the better ones of the year so far, in terms of new release, though that sort of goes without saying as we move into the fall. For the first time all year, a multitude of Academy Award possibilities are hitting theaters, so that alone is a major boost. Of course, there’s no assurance of Oscar attention, but I’m of the opinion that whenever we have a bunch of contenders circling the wagons, as it were, it’s a good thing. As such, this could be a very good month indeed. Take a look below and I’ll be more than happy to show you what September has to offer up… Here now are the ten best bets »

A few weeks ago, Michael Shannon sent the Internet in a tizzy when he casually revealed Zod would have flippers for hands in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Did this back up certain rumors about a certain transformation? Was he actually talking about flippers, or just flipper-shaped prosthetics? For that matter, why’s Zod in Batman v Superman […]

Last month, if you recall, the absolutely bonkers story of Michael Shannon revealing that he wore flippers on his hands during the filming of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice made the rounds. At the time I mentioned that it was entirely possible that Michael Shannon was just messing with us and it turns out, that's exactly what he was doing. While speaking with The Daily Beast, the...

Update 9/1/15: In a new interview, Michael Shannon has revealed that he can't believe anyone took his comments (see below) about his role in Batman v Superman seriously. “Somebody was asking me about this in New York and I made up some ridiculous bullshit answer about how my character Zod has flippers, and this went viral on the Internet or something and people have been asking me about that,” Shannon said with a baffled smile. “That is so obviously a complete bullshit story, right? But people took it seriously.” As for his actual involvement, he did admit that he's in the movie, but that he's just a holographic projection, not unlike Jor-El is for most of Man of Steel. Previously: Considering what happens to General Zod in Man of...

Last month, you may have spotted a story which went viral about Michael Shannon getting trapped in a toilet while on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The reason for that was because he had what he described as “flippers” on his hands at the time, and it didn’t take long for

A couple of weeks ago Michael Shannon offered up a few intriguing words on his role in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, suggesting that he had “flippers” for hands. Naturally this sparked a lot of debate amongst fans, and Shannon has now played down his comments in an interview with The Daily Beast, and in doing so he may have just inadvertently confirmed the inclusion of Doomsday in the DC superhero ensemble.
“Somebody was asking me about this in New York and I made up some ridiculous bullshit answer about how my character Zod has flippers, and this went viral on the Internet or something and people have been asking me about that,” states Shannon. “That is so obviously a complete bullshit story, right? But people took it seriously.”
“I wasn’t there [on set],” he continues. “It’s a really awkward situation—I’m in the trailer »

Two weeks ago, Michael Shannon told Vulture a humorous anecdote about getting stuck in a bathroom on the set of Batman v Superman: "I was in my costume, and I couldn’t use my fingers because in the sequel I have flippers instead of hands. So I had these wax flippers on my fingers, and I couldn’t open the door, and I could hear Zack [Snyder] being like, 'Where’s Shannon? Where the fuck is he?' and the whole crew was standing around. I was like, knocking on the door with my flippers, 'Let me out of here!'" A hilarious story, and one that was widely aggregated because of the apparent revelation that Shannon's General Zod would indeed return for the Man of Steel sequel (and also because of the flipper thing). But now Shannon tells The Daily Beast that he made the whole thing up as a joke, »

Despite his neck being snapped in Man of Steel, Zod still has a part to play next year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The Kryptonian general.s corpse was glimpsed in the latest trailer for the 2016 blockbuster, and multiple reports indicate that the body be transformed into Doomsday. However, while there are curious developments in store for Zod, actor Michael Shannon has some bizarre things to say about his actual involvement, namely that he never appeared on camera as his character. During an interview with The Daily Beast, Shannon admitted that while he did do some voice work for Dawn of Justice, he wasn.t actually present on set. He said: I wasn.t there. It.s a really awkward situation.I.m in the trailer for a movie that I didn.t work on. Shannon went on to say that Zod.s appearance in Batman v Superman: »
When the second Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer debuted at Comic-Con this summer, fans clearly saw the corpse of General Zod from 2013's Man of Steel. The reveal wasn't entirely surprising, since there had been rumors about Zod's corpse being integrated into the story for months. But then things took a turn for the weird last month. Michael Shannon revealed in an interview with Vulture that he got stuck in a Porta-Potty on the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set, because he was wearing "flippers instead of hands" as a part of his costume. Naturally, this raised tons of questions about Zod's involvement, with some speculating that Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) is turning Zod into Doomsday. As it turns out, the story is all fake, as Michael Shannon revealed to The Daily Beast that his "flipper" story was all a big fun lie.
"Somebody was asking me »
A couple of updates on three films in the DC Cinematic Universe today.
First up, Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". A while back Michael Shannon gave an interview in which he suggested his return as General Zod from "Man of Steel" in the follow-up film involves his character sporting flippers on his hands.
This led to suggestions that his character's dead body would be the subject of nasty experiments in the film. Shannon is now stepping back on those comments, but has offered some new ones that are more confusing. He tells The Daily Beast:
"Somebody was asking me about this in New York and I made up some ridiculous bulls--t answer about how my character Zod has flippers, and this went viral on the Internet or something and people have been asking me about that. That is so obviously a complete bulls--t story, right? But people took it seriously. »

A few weeks back, Michael Shannon dropped a very strange bomb on us regarding General Zod’s appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, namely that the fearsome Kryptonian villain would now be sporting flippers for hands. Speaking recently in an interview with The Daily Beast, Shannon cleared up his comments, and it seems our original thoughts were true: the most intense man in Hollywood was having a laugh with us: “Somebody was asking me about this in New York and I made up some ridiculous bulls**t answer about how my character Zod has flippers, and this went viral on the Internet or something and people have been asking me about that. That is so obviously a complete bulls**t story, right? But people took it seriously.” While some people will say this is damage control on Warmer Bros. part, on par with the ‘Talia al Ghul’ back »

"I was never Spider-Man." So says Andrew Garfield. After Sam Raimi directed Tobey Maguire in his trilogy of films, The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel were not as well received by the public. Whether or not you believe Garfield was a poor choice for the character, the actor spoke out about his time in the role and thinks he failed in many ways. Garfield reflected on his portrayal during a roundtable interview for 99 Homes, which also stars Michael Shannon and Laura Dern. According to Zaki.s Corner with Zaki Hasan, Garfield is pulling a Pierce Brosnan. Much as the former 007 thought himself ill-equipped to handle James Bond, Garfield tried to explain why he failed in certain capacities. He said, I thought I was going to be Spider-Man, you know? I went into it going ... ego sh*t came in. It's like, 'Okay, here it is. I'm f**king Spider-Man. I f**king made »
In the fallout of San Diego Comic-Con, where excitement for Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice reached the stratosphere following the release of the full-length trailer, news relating to the titanic DC showdown has been arriving thick and fast. From the reception of that early screening to Jesse Eisenberg singing the film’s praises, we’ve been inundated with juicy tidbits, and one of the more peculiar ones to arrive in the last few weeks came from General Zod himself, Michael Shannon.
Speculation has been rampant about his involvement in Dawn of Justice, though the actor seemed to hint that his character would be seen with flippers for hands. Somehow, almost inexplicably, this blew up over the Internet, though Shannon has now clarified the comments in the time since.

Earlier this month, Michael Shannon told a funny story about getting trapped in a toilet on the set of Batman v Superman because he had "flippers" over his hands. This obviously led to speculation that he must be taking on a motion capture role as Doomsday (as has been rumoured), but the actor is now doing some pretty unconvincing damage control! "I wasn’t there," he claims in an interview with The Daily Beast. "It’s a really awkward situation—I’m in the trailer for a movie that I didn’t work on." Shannon still hasn't seen the trailer, so obviously isn't aware of the fact we've all seen him in the movie; he must have been on set to shoot those scenes as a corpse after all. Instead, the actor has come up with a ludicrous claim (likely fed to him by the studio) that he does appear, »
Hoult will play Jd Salinger, who rose to global fame when his 1951 novel The Catcher In The Rye was first published and became a rallying cry for disillusioned youth.
Danny Strong will directed from the screenplay he adapted from the Kenneth Slawenski biography Jd Salinger: A Life.
Rebel In The Rye offers a glimpse at the life and mind of Salinger, from his rebellious youth to service in the Navy during WWII, Ptsd, spiritual awakening and his eventual self-imposed isolation after worldwide fame.
“The Catcher In The Rye is a classic coming-of-age story which continues to make a significant impression six generations later,” said Bloom’s Alex Walton.

Marvel has wasted no time in looking after Spider-Man. Lead actor and director are locked down (well after the release date announcement), and Kevin Feige and co. are more than keen to show audiences their vision of Spidey after Sony's not so well received 'The Amazing Spider-Man' films. But as with the previous reboot, that leaves a creative team reeling after a half-decade or more of effort, and recently we learned the inner workings of that shift from one of the films’ key players. Talking to the Playlist recently in Los Angeles while promoting Ramin Bahrani’s new film, “99 Homes” —his excellent first post-Spider-Man role since 2010’s “The Social Network”— actor Andrew Garfield spoke on his intense time in the comic book movie realm. Read More: Venice Review: Ramin Bahrani's '99 Homes,' Starring Andrew Garfield, Michael Shannon And Laura Dern “With a film like ["The Amazing Spider-Man"], there's so much projection and. »

Tom Ford had no trouble scooping up Us distribution for his buzzy postmodern thriller follow-up to "A Single Man" at this year's Cannes. The Focus Features project has now added Armie Hammer, recently seen in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," to a cast that already includes Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Shannon and Kim Basinger. Hammer will play Adams' husband in the fashion icon turned filmmaker's first film since 2009. Based on Austin Wright's 1993 book "Tony and Susan," Tom Ford's script follows a woman, Susan (Adams), whose ex-husband sends her a book manuscript containing two stories: the title tale "Nocturnal Animals" about a man whose family vacation takes fatal turns, and the story of Susan as she recollects her first marriage and confronts her spiritual demons. Writer/director/producer Ford, who presented his vision to Cannes buyers this month, is set to begin production on the postmodern neo-noir this Fall, »
