19 June 2017 2:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One year after Anton Yelchin's death, Green Room director Jeremy Saulnier pays tribute via his personal Twitter account. Anton Yelchin died in a freak accident on June 19th, 2016 at the young age of 27 after his car rolled down his steep driveway, crushing him against a security fence. The Russian star's resume included Terminator: Salvation, Star Trek, Green Room, and many, many more that shared his range from the dramatic to comedy and everything in between. Anton Yelchin appeared in Star Trek Beyond last summer and in all kinds of independent movies since 2001's Hearts of Atlantis.

The Green Room director posted a picture of Anton Yelchin from the set of Green Room. Yelchin is wearing a denim jacket and a Minor Threat "Out of Step" t-shirt with black makeup positioned on his face.

‘Green Room’ Director Jeremy Saulnier Honors Anton Yelchin One Year After His Death

19 June 2017 8:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s hard to imagine it’s been a year since we lost Anton Yelchin, who passed away June 19, 2016 at age 27 after a freak car accident. Because Yelchin continued to be a memorable face on the big screen over the past year in “Star Trek Beyond” and in festival entries like “Porto” and “Thoroughbred,” his death still hits like a shock to the system. He still feels very much like an active member of the film community, a feeling that will probably remain as he has more posthumous films waiting to be released.

Jeremy Saulnier, who directed Yelchin in the horror-thriller “Green Room,” shared a behind-the-scenes photo of the late actor on Twitter this morning to commemorate the one year anniversary of his passing. “Been a year since we lost this cinewarrior,” the director wrote. “Miss him dearly.” The film took »

11 great TV series for young children on Netflix

18 May 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sam Glover May 25, 2017

Stuck for an alternative to the usual viewing for young kids? Then these streaming recommendations may be of use...

The wonderful world wide web (including this very site) has looked in detail at Netflix; the hits, the misses, the hidden gems, the ones to miss and so on. This said, Netflix Originals has another area where it operates. And this is where my three-year-old son comes in.

See related  American Gods episode 4 review: Git Gone American Gods episode 3 review: Head Full Of Snow American Gods episode 2 review: The Secret Of Spoons

Thanks to Nick Jnr and Channel 5’s Milkshake, we’re generally okay in our house should children’s television (Aka award-winning parenting) be required. Netflix takes it to another level. There are the well-known shows (Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol etc.), the slightly lesser-known programmes (Pocoyo being my personal favourite) and then there are Netflix’s own productions. »

It could only happen in the movies, or could it? Cinematic Depictions of Real Life Tragedies

27 April 2017 5:39 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

It comes as no surprise that some of our most heinous historical world events have become the subject of a cinematic depiction. As audiences wanting their thirst for great cinema and intrigue in world issues grow we have had, in the naughties alone, Roman Polanski deliver The Pianist in 2002 and more recently László Nemes’ Son of Saul to quench our desire. Even this week, we have the release of Terry George’s The Promise which tells the story of the Armenian Genocide in the final years of the Ottoman Empire with Oscar Isaac, Charlotte LeBon and Christian Bale hitting our cinemas.

Whether these events are genocides, horrific murders, acts of terrorism or even demonic paranormal activities, our quest for knowledge, understanding and feeling has inspired filmmakers for years. Their films set out to shine a light on the atrocities and suffering of man, and act to empower »

The Russian-born and Los Angeles-bred actor made his onscreen debut at 11 in an episode of ER and never looked back, spending the rest of his life doing what he knew as a child he was »
