Featuring a high quality cast including Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxton, Jeff Renfroe's The Colony proved an enjoyable slice of glossy post-apocalyptic schlock. Come January 20, 2014, UK punters can get a look-in as Entertainment One bring the flick home on DVD.
By 2045, humans have built weather machines to help control the devastating threat of global warming, but when these machines unexpectedly break down, the planet is plunged into sub-zero temperatures and sent into the next ice age.

Briggs (Laurence Fishburne) and Mason (Bill Paxton) are the leaders of one such bunker, Colony 7.

Upon arrival they discover a desolate place with »

On Monday, November 11, the highlight of AFI Fest 2013 is Alexander Payne’s Nebraska (7:00 p.m. at Tcl Chinese Theatre), likely to earn a Best Actor Academy Award nomination for veteran Bruce Dern, who earlier this year took home the Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival.

Set in Kentucky (kidding), Nebraska accompanies an elderly man (Dern) and his son (Will Forte) as they travel from Billings, Montana, to Lincoln, Nebraska, so he can collect sweepstakes prize money he believes he has won.

Karine Vanasse is ready for take-off, but she's certainly not flighty. No, that's not a reference to her one-season TV series "Pan Am." Instead, she's about to fly to Montreal after a whirlwind weekend at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and an ongoing stint in L.A. shooting her recurring role on ABC's "Revenge."
With her effervescent charm, luminous smile and laser-focused doe eyes, the 29-year-old Drummondville, Quebec native is celebrating the release of "All the Wrong Reasons," a film best-known for its all-Canadian cast, and for being one of Cory Monteith's final projects. In the film, Vanasse and Monteith play an estranged husband and wife, who battle intimacy issues following the suicide of her character's sister. But to the always on-the-go Vanasse, the power of the award-winning film extends far beyond Monteith's legacy.
Moviefone: Congratulations on the film's big premiere! How did it go?
Karine Vanasse: It was so, »

The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes is to start production next year.
Production on the film was initially pushed back after its predecessor, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, underperformed at the Us box office.
However Constantin Film has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that production on the sequel will go ahead, following greater success internationally.
He said: "The fan response, from the blogosphere and the thousands of mails we have received, has encouraged us to keep going. It's been overwhelmingly positive, in contrast to some other Ya titles."
Moszkowicz added that the company had got the marketing wrong with the first film, saying: "We are analysing what we did wrong with the first film, particularly with the positioning and marketing, »

Studio: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
Aimed at the Twilight young-adult market, the fantasy film didn’t quite score as highly as the vampire movie, grossing only $31 million, compared to $193 million for the original Twilight. That could be because critics panned The Mortal Instruments (to the tune of 12% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes), although fans liked it much more (66%).
Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror) stars in the fantasy film as Clary, a normal teenager who discovers she’s the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, half-angel warriors trying to save the world from demons. When her mother (Lean Headey, The Purge) disappears, Clary joins forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, »
Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week:
What's It About? Guillermo del Toro's sci-fi adventure follows the rise of the Kaiju sea creatures, which threaten the future of mankind. In order to fight off the monstrous Kaiju, Jaeger robots are developed, which are controlled by two pilots who share a mental bond. In the face of an apocalypse, former pilot Raleigh (Charlie Hunnam) and trainee Mako (Rinko Kikuchi) are paired up to drive a Jaeger to save the planet.
Why We're In: Del Toro's sci-fi epic is great for every minute of its CGI spectacle ass-kicking. "Pacific Rim" was not only one of the most fun adventures of the summer, but it also featured solid performances from its two leads, along with Idris Elba. If you're looking for an action-packed film that will keep your eyes and ears entertained from start to finish, "Pacific Rim" is sure to please. »

Journalist Glenn Greenwald, who broke the Guardian’s expose story about the Nsa’s mass surveillance operation and who is now writing a book about Snowden and the Nsa, confirmed to Screen that “there have been negotiations” [with an unnamed company/companies] for rights but that a deal has yet to be concluded.

The Stephen Sommers adaptation of Den Koontz’s novel Odd Thomas has been in distribution hell since wrapping shooting Two years ago, but now it seems that the film will see the light of day after all.

It's not easy to create the end of the world, and usually, it's not inexpensive, either. We're talking, of course, about post-apocalyptic movies. Often, it requires a mega-budget to make the world's end convincing--otherwise, filmmakers run the risk of having their film look like something on the Syfy network. But Canadian director Jeff Renfroe has come up a mid-budget apocalypse, one that looks terrific, and actually features some top-shelf actors trying to survive after things get very, very cold. In "The Colony," the world has frozen over, and humanity's only survivors live in underground bunkers, referred to as, you guessed it, Colonies. But life is tough, especially at Colony Seven, where Sam (Kevin Zegers) lives. Tensions have risen to a breaking point when they receive a distress call from another base, so Sam heads out with Briggs (Laurence Fishburne) to see what all the commotion is about. Renfroe spoke to Upcoming-Movies. »
Utterly routine futuristic horror-thriller “The Colony” substitutes the term “ferals” for plain old zombies (the modern, fast-moving kind), and that’s about it for originality. This Canadian production has been playing various territories since spring; low-profile U.S. theatrical opening Sept. 20 will at least raise awareness for home-format distrib, with VOD already available.
Mankind apparently messed around with the weather in an attempt to slow global warming, with the undesired effect that, as Kevin Zegers’ protag puts it, “One day it started snowing, and it never stopped.” Now Earth is a frozen wasteland with just a few humans surviving in underground complexes. (Pic was partly shot at a North American Aerospace Defense Command installation in Ontario.) The inhabitants of Colony 7 grow their own plants and livestock, although those efforts fare poorly enough to require strict rations.
Worse, the common cold has turned into a fatal epidemic, with those falling ill »
