Photo from Insidious 3 Released as It Starts Shooting

23 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The first photo from the set of Insidious 3 has been released, and it features a familiar face. Lin Shaye is back as Elise Rainier, who helped out the family in the first two films. She may have died at the end of the second one, but this new film seems to be a prequel.

The twisted new tale of terror begins for "a teenage girl and her family, predating the haunting of the Lambert family in the earlier movies and revealing more mysteries of the otherworldly realm The Further."

The co-creator of the horror franchise, Leigh Whannell, is writing and directing the new movie. I love this horror franchise. James Wan did an amazing job bringing the first two to life, but I think it's in good hands with Whannell. 

Here's a press release that came with the photo announcing a sweepstakes you can enter. The winner gets a trip »

First image from Insidious: Chapter 3

As filming commences on horror sequel Insidious: Chapter 3, a first-look image emerges. Take a look within...

News

Critical reactions to last year's Insidious: Chapter 3 may have been mixed, but the box office figures give a clear indication of how popular it was: from a budget of just $5m, it made $160m. Profits like that mean a sequel's just around the corner, with director James Wan replaced by screenwriter Leigh Whannell for next May's Insidious: Chapter 3.

There's also a change in the cast: Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne will be replaced by Dermot Mulroney and Stefanie Scott, who'll join returning cast members Lin Shaye, Angus Sampson and Leigh Whannell as the trio of paranormal investigators from the previous two movies. Chapter 3 will take place before the first two films, introducing a new family whose daughter's been possessed by something evil from The Further.

Jason Blum interview: The Purge: Anarchy, Paranormal Activity 5 and more

22 July 2014 4:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We talk to producer Jason Blum about The Purge: Anarchy, Parnormal Activity 5, making horror on a budget, and being a Hollywood rebel...

Interview

Although he's been a successful Hollywood movie producer since the mid-90s, it was the gigantic, unexpected popularity of Paranormal Activity which brought Jason Blum and his production company Blumhouse Productions to the world's attention. Since that film landed in 2007, his company's been responsible for a range of low-budget yet often very effective genre films, ranging from Insidious in 2010, via Barry Levinson's The Bay in 2012, to alien invasion flick Dark Skies in 2013.

Last year also saw the release of another surprise hit for Blumhouse: The Purge, a lean, flawed mix of sci-fi, horror and home invasion thriller directed by James DeMonaco. The sequel, The Purge: Anarchy, is out this week, and it's a successful expansion of the first film's premise, as its futuristic violence spills out »

5 Movies Due For a Remake

21 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

What keeps any story or idea relevant is continuous adaptation. The blanket statement that “remakes suck” discounts a lot of great remakes and ignores the fact that mankind has been retelling and remixing stories forever. A good example of reinvention is Batman, who will see his 4th cinematic incarnation and is popular worldwide and across all ages. Buck Rogers on the other hand hasn’t had a new movie since 1939 and grows more irrelevant with each passing year.

All five movies that I think are due for a remake are 15 years or older. Four of these are adaptations from other media. For each movie I break down their faults or misfortunes, the opportunity in the source material or potential in a remake, how a remake makes fiscal sense, its current and past remake status, and finally a bit of fanboy wishful thinking.

Vin Diesel's Stacked Slate: xXx 3, Kojak, Hannibal, & More

21 July 2014 6:03 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Vin Diesel recently sat down with Collider to discuss his upcoming slate of movies. Notable in his plan is that he intends to return to one of his earlier franchises- similar to how he returned to Fast & Furious after bowing out of the first sequel- xXx. Just as he didn't take part in 2 Fast 2 Furious, Diesel sat out xXx: State of The Union. But now it looks like he's ready to revisit his Xander Cage character for xXx 3. 

"I am going to do the next xXx which will be filming in part in the Philippines, which I’m very, very, very excited about."

There's also Kojak, a film adaptation of the beloved 1970s TV show starring Telly Savalas. Diesel confirms that he'll be starring in that film for Universal, as soon as he wraps on his next film, The Last Witch Hunter, where he'll get to work with one of »

Deliver Us From Marketing – The Misuse of ‘True’ Stories in Cinema

20 July 2014 6:13 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This article is based on a true story.

In a rather perfect example of the Coen Brothers’ irreverent mischievousness, their 1996 masterpiece Fargo opens with the text ‘This is a true story‘. Mainly employed to set the tone for their story, which is at its heart a deeply cynical look at human greed and folly, it was a knowingly bogus claim that virtually everyone was aware of from the get-go. A blatant lie rather than a half true, it escapes genuine criticism mostly due to its audacity. Even so, it sparked an infamous urban legend that a woman went in hunt of the loot and froze to death, having seen the movie and the truthfulness claim and taking it that real money was buried somewhere in the snowfields of Minnesota. While it has since proven to be a false story, either fabricated or mis-attributing a real death to a fictional premise, »
