Let The Right One In Lands Pilot Order At TNT

29 August 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You may recall a time when we brought you news that Tomorrow Studios, undeterred by Matt Reeves’ own Hollywood remake, had snapped up rights to Let The Right One In, John Ajvide Lindqvist’s beloved horror romance novel.

That was almost a full year ago at this stage, but Deadline brings word that the small-screen project has now exploded into life, landing a pilot order at TNT. Criminal Minds and Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis remains attached at the helm of this new take, one that is aiming to tap into the core tents of Lindqvist’s acclaimed vampire love story. First published ten years ago, it’s a novel that is held in high regard for its ability to “combine elements of horror, revenge thriller and adolescent romance into an unforgettable and truly unsettling tale.”

Lindqvist later adapted Let The Right One In for Tomas Alfredson’s Swedish movie of the same name, »

Top Ten Box Office Takeaways: ‘Don’t Breathe’ Doubles Expectations as Horror Rises Again

28 August 2016 2:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Summer’s almost gone. This season’s ups and downs charted a confusing course on the state of the movie business. This weekend at least was mostly positive, as Sony’s “Don’t Breathe” (Sony) came on surprisingly strong. It’s the latest of several superior horror films to catch on with the public, with an almost unheard of 7% jump Saturday from its initial strong Friday (plus previews) numbers.

Lionsgate filled in with their latest Jason Statham action release “Mechanic: Resurrection.” Independently financed by Millennium with a reduced exposure for Lionsgate, it is at the low end of their films together. Still it added $7.5 million to a Top Ten total that looks like a record for the last weekend before the Labor Day holiday (unadjusted).

The Top Ten

1. Don’t Breathe (Sony) New Cinemascore: B+; Metacritic: 71; Est. budget: $10 million

$26,115,000 in 3,051 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $8,559; Cumulative: $26,115,000

2. Suicide Squad (Warner Bros. »

How ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Changed Everything for Breakout Star Sterling K. Brown

15 August 2016 2:40 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While filming Episode 9 of “The People vs. O.J. Simpson,” Sterling K. Brown prepared at length for the explosive courtroom scene as assistant prosecutor Christopher Darden, when he releases pent-up rage against defense attorney Johnny Cochran (Courtney P. Vance). Brown knew emotion and sentiment would be high; he had to be on top of it to let it go.

He went to set early, when it was quiet and dark, and did a strong rehearsal. The lights were set. Director Anthony Hemingway called “Action!”

And Brown forgot all his lines. For three takes.

Hemingway called ‘cut’ and gave the actor a few minutes to go over the lines. He took some deep breaths, came back, and nailed it. “I just needed to get over that initial hiccup,” he said. “Once I was able to marry the emotion with the words, it went well, it just took a minute.”

Bryce Dallas Howard on switching from dinosaurs to dragons in Pete's DragonBryce Dallas Howard on switching from dinosaurs to dragons in Pete's DragonBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine8/15/2016 12:12:00 Pm

She may not be on "Game of Thrones" (yet) but you could still get away with calling Bryce Dallas Howard Mother of Dragons.

Or Auntie of Dinosaurs, she’s definitely that.

Yeah, it can get confusing. But not just for us.

“When we were shooting in New Zealand, I kept making the same mistake,” Howard, 35, says with a laugh in a trailer on Southern California’s Universal City lot. “Over and over on set, I would be like, ‘Where is the dinosaur mark? Where do I look, where is the dinosaur?’ And they were like ‘Dragon. Dragon! In this movie it’s a dragon!’ I couldn’t help it; it was a very similar situation to Jurassic World.”

DVD Obscura: The New Indie and International Movies You Need to Watch

12 August 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

New Indie: The element of surprise can be a huge challenge for a filmmaker – we’ve all seen at least one too many M. Night Shyamalan thrillers, so it’s easy for audiences to smell a twist or a trick coming from two acts away. That constant sense of having the rug pulled out is just one of the reasons that The Invitation (Drafthouse Films) is one of this year’s best, and most talked-about, indie films, but it’s hardly the only one. Director Karyn Kusama (Girlfight) keeps us on edge and off kilter from the opening scenes, in which a man and his girlfriend are reluctantly heading to a dinner party being thrown by his ex-wife and her new partner. The dinner itself just gets more and more awkward, and foreboding, but it’s really best that you go into...

We Need to Reevaluate ‘The Village’ Before it’s Too Late

Ask someone to name their favorite M. Night Shyamalan film and you’re guaranteed to hear the same two titles: The Sixth Sense or Unbreakable. Sure, the odd outlier will praise Signs, but we all know they’re just trying to be different. And I get it. The Sixth Sense re-introduced the art of “the twist” to cinema, and Unbreakable was itself a twist on archetypal superhero storytelling, […] »

X-men: First Class Actress Zoë Kravitz Joins Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

10 August 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Warner Bros.' upcoming Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them has added Zoë Kravitz in a secret role that has already completed filming.  THR's sources say that Kravitz quietly joined the cast of the David Yates-directed feature shortly after it began production last year and that her role in the first installment will be fairly small, but there is an option in her contract for a return in the sequel with a much larger part. The aforementioned sequel - the second installment in a planned trilogy of films - was dated last week for a November 16, 2018 release. Kravitz is best known to comic book movie fans for her role as Angel Salvadore a.k.a. Tempest in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, as Christina in The Divergent Series, and as Toast the Knowing in George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road. »

A Third Season Of Wayward Pines Is Under Consideration

10 August 2016 2:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite originally being conceived as a single season television project, Wayward Pines is currently being considered for a third season renewal – according to Fox Television Group Chairman and CEO Dana Walden, addressing the press at the Television Critics Association. The show was developed by Chad Hodge, boasts M. Night Shyamalan among its producers and recurring directors, and did well enough in its first season in 2015 to earn a surprise second season.

Those new episodes concluded on July 27th, 2016, and Dana Walden is now looking to the future of the show.

“I definitely think there could be a season three. It’s still the number one scripted show of the summer. It struggled. Most shows struggle year to year. We don’t know yet what we’re going to find when the multi-platform numbers roll up, ultimately how big that audience is. I think I’m sharing a point of view »

Fox Chiefs Talk Reboots, ‘X-Files’ Future and Strains of Peak TV Era

8 August 2016 12:23 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The enormity of the TV series landscape these days has helped fuel Fox’s push into the past with reboots and revivals of familiar properties. But shows with built-in brand names still have to earn their way on to the schedule, Fox Television Group chief Dana Walden and Fox entertainment president David Madden emphasized Monday during the exec Q&A session of Fox’s Television Critics Association presentation.

“Reboots are not a guarantee of success — we certainly know that as well as anyone,” Walden said. “Our hope was that the well-known titles — if and only if well-executed — would lighten the load on our marketing team (by) taking advantage of viewers’ awareness.”

Bowing on Fox in the 2016-17 season are new iterations of “24” and “Prison Break” and adaptations of movies “Lethal Weapon” and “The Exorcist.” The explosion of TV series options for viewers has made reboots more appealing, Walden said. but in other ways they face a higher »

'Stranger Things': How Two Brothers Created Summer's Biggest TV Hit

3 August 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Matt and Ross Duffer, the twin masterminds who wrote and directed Netflix's Eighties nostalgiafest Stranger Things, have a confession: They're sorta Nineties kids.

The North Carolina–bred brothers were born in 1984 — a year after the show's setting — and, while they have murky recollections of Cold War anxiety, they grew up playing Magic: The Gathering more than Dungeons & Dragons. "We were like, 'Shit, the kids in the show can't be playing Magic: The Gathering; it hasn't been invented yet,'" Matt says with a laugh. "My brother and I played D&D. »
