Pda of the Day: Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy Get Cuddly at NYC Concert!

8 November 2013 12:42 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

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, »

Even Blues Music Can't Stop Mary-Kate and Olivier's Pda

8 November 2013 11:55 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

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 »

Today's Horror Icons: Greg McLean Of 'Wolf Creek'

24 October 2013 1:20 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

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, »

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. »

New Trailer For Wolf Creek 2 Offers Up More Outback Terror

22 October 2013 9:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 »

John Jarratt Returns To Kill Tourists In Wolf Creek 2 Trailer

22 October 2013 5:38 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

"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 »

'Wolf Creek 2' Trailer: Yet Another Reason to Never, Ever Visit the Australian Outback

22 October 2013 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Australian Board of Tourism probably really, really hates writer-director Greg Mclean. He broke into the scene in 2005 with Wolf Creek, a small-scale horror movie about a few very unlucky backpackers who come across the maniac Mick Taylor in the outback. The movie ended up making nearly $30 million across the globe, giving a new generation their first taste of horror from down under. He followed that up with Rogue, an entertaining, adventurous thriller about a few tourists who get stranded on an island after their boat is attacked by a massive crocodile. After a few years producing, Mclean is now back to round out his "Don't Go into the Outback" trilogy with Wolf Creek 2, which once again finds some young men and women accidentally trekking through Mick...
