TV Recap: 'Face Off' Episode 613 - 'Bloodsuckers'

9 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Face Off Episode 613


Original Airdate: 8 April 2014

In This Episode…

This week: vampires. Each contestant must select a stake from a coffin. On each stake is engraved the name of an international vampire-like creature. The contestants must create a vampire inspired by the legend they have chosen, and add in an “extreme functionality” that is atypical of vampires. Len Wiseman is the guest judge.

The Creations

George had yara ma yha who, from Australia. His creature is supposed to feed through his fingers, but he messed up on them and they looked like big, bulky sausages that were just terrible. His face sculpt was beautiful, though. Len thought he had a “menacing presence” and looked like a real creature (not just a guy in a suit). Ve thought it was terrific, but the fingers really suck. Glenn thought the head sculpt was gorgeous but surrounded with bad decisions. Neville was »

Screen Gems Developing Underworld: Next Generation

25 March 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Screen Gems are hard at work developing the latest installment in the long-running 'Underworld' franchise. The fourth chapter 'Underworld: Awakening' was released back in early 2012 and bought us the new character of Eve, the hybrid daughter of Selene (played by the Kate Beckinsale -below ('Total Recall')) and Michael. The new project, currently entitled 'Underworld: Next Generation', would likely focus on Eve at least according to what we can gather from the speculative new title. Of course it's early days to discuss cast but can we expect another appearance from Beckinsale? Len Wiseman will return to produce and so the hunt is on for a suitable writer and director. »

Screen Gems Developing Underworld: Next Generation

24 March 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

2012 saw the release of Underworld: The Awakening, the fourth installment in the mega-popular Underworld franchise, which introduced Selene and Michael's hybrid daughter, Eve. Will Eve become the new Selene in future installments? Read on for details!

Bloody Disgusting reports that they've learned Screen Gems is actively developing a fifth installment in the series, tentatively titled Underworld: Next Generation. Though no plot details have been revealed, the title certainly implies that Eve will be the main protagonist of the film, but we can only speculate at this point in time.

Len Wiseman will produce, and the studio is currently seeking a writer and director. Kate Beckinsale is not yet officially attached, though that could of course change as the project inches its way closer to reality.

Are you tired of the Underworld franchise, or do you eagerly anticipate more stylized battles with vamps and lycans? Comment below and let us know! »

Paleyfest 2014: What's Ahead in Sleepy Hollow Season 2?

21 March 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

Paleyfest 2014 is currently under way, and earlier this week it was "Sleepy Hollow's" turn to tease what's in store for fans during Season 2. We don't have much for you, but considering how anxious we are for the return of Ichabod, Abbie, and the rest of the gang, we'll take what we can get!

TV Guide was at the event on the 19th, and here are the highlights. Be sure to hit the link at the bottom of the page for the rest.

First off, when the show returns, there will be a few new faces in town. "With Irving [Orlando Jones] incarcerated, we have to figure out who's going to be in charge of the law and order in Sleepy Hollow," executive producer Mark Goffman said. Unfortunately, the new captain coming to town is Not an ally to Abbie (Nicole Beharie) and Ichabod (Tom Mison).

PaleyFest 2014: Mison, Beharie, Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman, and Goffman Talk Sleepy Hollow

20 March 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

For more than 30 years, PaleyFest has held panel sessions and screenings that connect the worldwide community of television fans with the casts and creators of their favorite TV shows. One of the evenings was to celebrate the huge success of the first season of the Fox television series Sleepy Hollow.  The modern-day twist on the Washington Irving's classic tale of Ichabod Crane seems like a completely insane story idea, but has instead proven to be a fun ride that is very entertaining to watch on a weekly basis.  Collider was there to attend the panel, and we’ve compiled some of the highlights. During the evening, executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Len Wiseman and Mark Goffman, as well as actors Tom Mison ("Ichabod Crane") and Nicole Beharie ("Lt. Abbie Mills"), talked about what’s up for the gang in Season 2, what type of new characters will show up, »

Headless Horseman Spooks ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Fans at PaleyFest

19 March 2014 11:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Headless Horseman isn’t just on an on-screen terror for the cast of “Sleepy Hollow.”

The decapitated villain made an impromptu appearance on stage at PaleyFest Wednesday which not only shocked a packed Dolby Theatre, but also terrified the panel’s moderator, Sandra Gonzalez of Entertainment Weekly. Although he managed to take the room by surprise, he didn’t fare so well as he departed the stage. Instead of making a dramatic exit, the Headless Horseman lost the blade to his axe, resulting in a guffaw from the crowd.

PaleyFest: ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Cast & Crew Talk ‘Shipping’ And Villains, Tease Season 2

19 March 2014 9:18 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The cast and crew of Fox‘s supernatural drama Sleepy Hollow materialized Wednesday evening at PaleyFest to tease the fates of the show’s characters going into fall’s second season. Although January’s S1 finale left the cast in various states of distress and spaces between spaces — Purgatory being one such locale — cast member John Cho‘s presence was testament to the fact that on Sleepy Hollow, as Ep Mark Goffman noted, “You can be dead but that doesn’t mean you’re gone.” Related: Fall 2013 Freshman Series Scorecard: Time Slot Gainers and Slackers The show’s producers promised the return of John Noble as Henry Parrish aka Jeremy Crane aka The Horseman of War in Season 2. And he won’t be alone. “There are a lot of amazing foot soldiers coming, familiar and also original,” teased co-creator/Ep Bob Orci. Fellow co-creator and Ep Len Wiseman hinted that »

Remake of Verhoeven's RoboCop Bombs in North American

17 February 2014 6:39 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

RoboCop’ 2014 movie: Full-fledged flop at domestic box office (photo: Joel Kinnaman in ‘RoboCop’ 2014) Directed by José Padilha, and starring Joel Kinnaman and Abbie Cornish, Sony Pictures’ $100 million-budgeted RoboCop 2014 remake opened with disappointing numbers on Wednesday, February 12, 2014. Things improved a bit over the weekend, but there’s no denying that RoboCop 2014 will become a major domestic box office bomb. (See also: José Padilha hates ‘RoboCop’ 2014 filmmaking process.) According to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo, Padilha’s remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 "classic" (as mentioned elsewhere on this site, just about anything made before 2003 is considered a classic these days) landed in third place this extended Presidents Day Weekend, February 14-17, trailing both Warner Bros.’ overwhelmingly well-received The Lego Movie and Sony Pictures / ScreenGems’ low-budget romantic comedy About Last Night. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street), and featuring the voices of Chris Pratt, »

The comedienne was reportedly seen ''making out'' with the 'Frost/Nixon' actor at Hollywood nightspot Soho House last Thursday, and insiders have confirmed they are now a couple. A source told Us Weekly magazine: ''They were making out at Soho House. They were all over each other for a lot of the night.''

‘RoboCop’ remake merely forgettable, instead of being an outright misfire

11 February 2014 9:09 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Written by Joshua Zetumer & Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner

Directed by José Padilha

USA, 2014

Paul Verhoeven’s science-fiction films RoboCop and Total Recall take place in different environments and eras, but share a similarly raucous, ramshackle, satiric attitude. These films are products of their time, filled with garishly practical effects and grimy, tactile sets, costumes, and character designs; you could reach out and touch his visions of futuristic Detroit or Mars, even though you probably wouldn’t want to spend much time in either locale. The recent Total Recall remake from director Len Wiseman was lifeless and devoid of personality; it assembled a decent ensemble including Colin Farrell and Bryan Cranston, and proceeded to waste them entirely in a world that was intentionally fake and shiny, a green-screen facsimile. So it is faint, if not inaccurate, praise indeed to say that the RoboCop remake, which also boasts a stellar line of performers, »

What I Watched, What You Watched #231

9 February 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This week I caught three movies in theaters, two I've already reviewed -- The Lego Movie and The Monuments Men -- and the other is Winter's Tale, which I don't think I'm able to review just yet, but I will say I was expecting something terrible and that's not what I got... I'll say more next week when it hits theaters. At home I watched Francois Truffaut's Jules and Jim on Criterion Blu-ray, which I reviewed and only two people, sadly commented... Hopefully more people come to the table with thoughts and opinions when I review Alfred Hitchcock's Foreign Correspondent this coming week. I watched the new Criterion Blu-ray this week as well. Also, I finally saw Paul Thomas Anderson's Hard Eight, which played Sundance and Cannes in '96 before being released in the States in '97, the same year Anderson's Boogie Nights was released.

Michael Sheen rang in his 45th birthday in La on Wednesday with a slew of Hollywood's most beautiful women. Kate Hudson, who costarred with Michael in 2002's The Four Feathers, dropped by the bash at Craig's restaurant, while Lily Collins pulled up to the event with her rumored new boyfriend, Australian actor Thomas Cocquerel. Other guests included Michael's Masters of Sex costar Lizzy Caplan (who arrived with a massive gift) and his ex-girlfriend Kate Beckinsale, who arrived with her husband, Len Wiseman. With so many stars at a birthday party, you'd expect Michael to walk away with some ritzy loot.

RoboCop: wanted for serious crimes against cinema

6 February 2014 5:50 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

José Padilha's remake, like 2012's Total Recall and the planned Starship Troopers reboot, don't just miss the point of Paul Verhoeven's films. They embody the very things he satirised

• News: Fans furious over first images of new Robocop

• Blog: Robocop trailer suggests remake won't suit everyone

As a kid, I heard of Detroit by watching RoboCop, which portrayed the city as a disaster area marked by rampant street crime and corporate exploitation. I knew it was a fantasy, a tongue-in-cheek exaggeration of Reagan-era social anxieties, but the associations lingered.

Now reality is catching up: Detroit recently declared bankruptcy, with a judge noting that it "no longer has the resources to provide its residents with basic police, fire and medical services". It's a desperate situation for the city's residents, but I thought it might at least lend the new remake of RoboCop the satirical urgency that Paul Verhoeven brought to his 1987 movie. »

Sleepy Hollow: Q&A with Costume Designer Kristin M. Burke

3 February 2014 10:26 PM, PST | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

If you watch supernatural cop show Sleepy Hollow on Fox (Universal in the UK), you will definitely know who Kristin Burke is. Her sartorial contribution to the first season has ingrained the series with a handsome, consistent, yet oddly plausible look. We say ‘oddly’ because the show is, for want of a better term, completely batshit crazy; a mix of 18th century drama and modern day X-Files, involving headless horsemen, a tree monster, deadly black vein disease, and all manner of creepy mythology based beasties. It’s terrific fun.

Kristin M. Burke is what we would politely call a veteran costume designer, over 50 films to her name, although not someone especially used to working in television. Her big screen credits include The Cooler, Running Scared, Paranormal Activity 2, Insidious, The Conjuring, and Insidious 2. Kudos for spotting the trend – there are several horror titles in that list. The genre it seems »

Kate Beckinsale Wows in Mini Dress at Grammys Afterparty—See the Pics!

28 January 2014 8:13 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Fabulous at 40! Kate Beckinsale proved to be just that when the stunning star attended the Warner Music Group Grammy Party hosted by Heineken in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 26. Wearing a strapless red and black floral mini dress, the actress showed off her enviable figure as she made her way in to enjoy the festivities with husband Len Wiseman. Although, Beckinsale looking beautiful is really nothing new. After all, time and time and time again, she has easily managed to exude perfection. Which, of course, makes the following quote that she gave to Women's Health almost too hard to believe. "I wasn't particularly athletic," she told the magazine in 2012 regarding »
