It's no secret that Mary-Kate Olsen and her boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy are fans of Pda. The two have been known to get cuddly (and kissy!) in a number of places like basketball games and even airports. Their most recent snuggle session was at New York City's The Cutting Room, where the loved up couple watched a blues performance by Ronnie Wood and Mick Taylor (two former members of the Rolling Stones). The fashionista appeared to be wearing her signature all-black ensemble and had her hair swept off of her face in a messy bun. She also looked fresh faced in barely any makeup and accessorized with numerous gold rings. The 27-year-old sipped on a Red Bull energy drink while her beau, »
Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy were happy to sing to each other at a concert in NYC on Thursday night. One half of America's favorite twins sat with her Frenchman and enjoyed cocktails and a blues performance by Ronnie Wood and Mick Taylor, a current and former member of the Rolling Stones respectively, at The Cutting Room. Chris Noth, who owns the club, was also on hand to introduce the rock stars to the audience. Mary-Kate, 27, and Olivier, 44, have been dating since May 2012 and are still very much in sync. The two embraced each other for some adorable Pda throughout the concert and at one point tightly wrapped their arms around each other while seemingly belting out the lyrics. As the two lovebirds focused on the stage, Oliver held Mary-Kate close, only letting go to stand up and give the iconic musicians applause. Mary-Kate and Olivier are no strangers to »

When the prison coach capsizes in the mountains, Jim makes a daring escape along with Burke and two other convicted men. They are quickly tracked by a rag-tag team of police led by the determined Sergeant Mitchell, aided by a cunning Black Tracker.

From the "Splat Pack" school of horror comes Greg McLean and this trailer for part two of his terror-in-the-Australian-outback favorite, "Wolf Creek."
The sequel picks up with a different set of tourists who are hunted by serial killer Mick Taylor (John Jarrat). The sadistic outdoorsman doesn't take kindly to foreigners and treats them like the pigs he shoots.
McLean's story is based on a real-life murderer, Ivan Milat, and quickly gathered a cult following. It also introduced one of the scariest villains horror fans had seen in a long time (a real threat, not a supernatural bogeyman), who put his co-stars through their paces in the brutally violent tale.
Fans have been waiting for what seems like forever for the sequel, which will hit theaters on February 20, 2014. The Australian director has only made a handful of films, but his willingness to break taboos and push boundaries, while maintaining a sensitivity to his characters, »

Lured by the promise of an Australian holiday, backpackers Rutger, Katarina, and Paul visit the notorious Wolf Creek Crater. Their dream Outback adventure soon becomes an horrific reality when they encounter the site’s most infamous local, the last man any traveler to the region ever wants to meet: Mick Taylor (John Jarratt).

Were all chomping at the bit to see that crazed lunatic Mick Taylor brutally slaughter anyone who traipses about territory in which he deems his. Wolf Creek was a visceral punch to audiences and were hoping dearly that Wolf Creek 2 follows suit. Of course with a villain like Mick its hard to imagine things going any way other than bloody. »
"There’s people like me, and there’s people like you, and people like me eat people like you."
Here's the first trailer for Wolf Creek 2, which follows a cannibalistic psycho killer who wanderers in the Australian outback looking for his victims. I thought the first one was a decent flick, and apparently this sequel is supposed to be good, too. The movie got solid reviews when it premiered at the Venice Film Festival. If you liked the first film, then I'm guessing you'll like the sequel as well.
The Australian outback is a lonely, isolated place—the perfect playground for a sadistic serial killer with a penchant for bloodthirsty sport. A red wasteland, the stifling, oppressive heat isn’t the only menace that should be feared. Bored with the so-called commercial tourism of the city, young and idealistic backpackers Rutger and Katarina yearn to explore the “real” Australia and »

It was nearly 10 years ago that Greg McLean brought Wolf Creek into the world, a tale of ill-fated backpackers that introduced us to one of my personal favorite horror villains in recent years; Mick Taylor. In 2014, Mick's back... and he's got a few days to kill!
Wolf Creek 2 will see another group of backpackers visiting the notorious Wolf Creek Crater, wherein they run head on into ole Mick. Once again directed by Greg McLean, with John Jarratt reprising the role of the wisecracking outback slasher, the sequel is set for release on February 20th of next year.
Check out the first trailer below, which promises a much more high-octane killing spree than the one we saw in 2005!

It’s been a good 8 years since the psychotic Mick Taylor (John Jarratt) doled out his own brand of terror and torture on three unsuspecting backpackers in the heart of the Australian Outback. Now he’s back and thirsty for more blood in writer/director Greg McLean’s brutal follow up Wolf Creek 2, and the good people over at Roadshow Films have released this chilling new trailer to whet our appetite.
Wolf Creek 2 continues the grisly exploits of the outback villain as two more backpackers decide to wander off the beaten path and have the misfortune of running into old Mick and his sniper rifle. It’s at this point that the film hits the ground running and doesn’t let up. Or so it seems.
All the makings of a classic horror film are here: two clueless protagonists in the wrong place at the wrong time, a »

"In this world, there's people like me and people like you. And people like me eat people like you," says serial killer Mick Taylor in the latest trailer for Wolf Creek 2, courtesy of The Wrap. Taylor doesn't see himself as a murderer, more an exterminator. See, he likens foreigners in his great outback to feral pigs, a non-native species that has overrun the Outback wreaking all kinds of damage to its ecosystem. He shoots pigs, but for the humans who wander away from their homelands, Mick promises a far more brutal fate. This is an interesting way to spin out a sequel from the first film, which was "based on real events." In 2005, the independent Australian slasher flick made its world premiere at the Sundance, and later played at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. Part of its allure was its claim to be telling a true story, a device that »
