Dead Rising: Watchtower Film Gets First Trailer

22 January 2015 12:34 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We are getting another movie based off a popular video game, and it of course includes more zombies! If you have been waiting to see anything regarding the Dead Rising movie, come check out the first trailer!

It's really hard to base an opinion off this trailer. I can't tell if it is taking itself seriously, or not. If it's not, then it looks farely decent because it looks like a low grade zombie movie with jokes. After all, how can you take Dead Rising seriously? Don't fret though, I had the same problem with the Ant Man trailer.

The good news? Even if this movie is terrible you won't waste a whole lot of money seeing it in theaters. Instead the film will debut on Crackle (Sony's ad runned video service) on March 27th. It should be free to watch, well if you don't count watching ads.

‘Dead Rising: Watchtower’ Stars Jesse Metcalfe, Virginia Madsen, Rob Riggle Are Screwed in First Trailer (Video)

22 January 2015 10:33 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The adaptation of a popular zombie survival video game is a Crackle original

“How bad will it get?” a character asks in the first trailer for Crackle original “Dead Rising: Watchtower.”

It’s hard to tell, but the movie featuring familiar faces like Jesse Metcalfe (“Dallas”), Meghan Ory (“Once Upon a Time”), Virginia Madsen (“Sideways”), Dennis Haysbert (“24″), and Rob Riggle (“21 Jump Street”) doesn’t look good.

Feature: Top 25 Interviews of 2014, By Patrick McDonald

12 January 2015 12:48 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – One of the specialities of HollywoodChicago.com is the film and personality interview. The majority of these chats came through me, Patrick McDonald, and I couldn’t narrow it down to a top 10 or even a top 20. For 2014, there were 25 top interviews, and it is a diverse range of voices.

It is a privilege to get the opportunity to participate in the promotional tours, awards ceremonies, film festivals, book appearances, phoners and other lucky happenstances that feature the notable among us. To whittle down the list, I mostly thought about what was said in these interviews, whether inspirational or provocative – plus the status of the participants, whether they are up-and-coming or established.

The interview highlights are broken down by “Background and Behind-the-Scenes” and the “Memorable Quote” associated with each subject, and are often accompanied with exclusive photography by Joe Arce of HollywoodChicago.com. Four notables who just missed the »

36 British films to look out for in 2015

5 January 2015 8:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

UK cinema in 2015 has plenty to recommend it. Here are 36 UK films of all genres to look forward to this year…

Dig past the litterfall of Kray Brothers biopics and tales of nubile teens on camping trips gone wrong, and you’ll unearth plenty for the UK film industry to boast about in 2015. From sci-fi romps and thrillers like Robot Overlords and Ex Machina to dramas like High-Rise, comedies like War On Everyone, spy flicks like Spectre and kids’ films like Bill, there’s no shortage of inventive, highly promising cinema coming from these isles.

We’ve included a few choice co-productions in 2015’s pick of the year’s most interesting-looking pictures, which bolsters our list in both size and breadth (and mostly means we Brits can claim partial credit for ace-sounding dystopian flick The Lobster).

In alphabetical order then, here are the 36 UK (or UK-ish) movies we’re excited about seeing this year… »
