For Whom The Bell "Trolls"

2 July 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

DreamWorks Animation continues production on a computer-animated musical comedy feature based on the collectible "Troll" doll line (seen briefly in "Guardians Of The Galaxy") directed by Mike Mitchell, targeting a 2016 release, starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Jason Schwartzman:

The 'troll' dolls, were originally created by Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam. They became one of the biggest toy fads in the early 1960's. They became fads again in brief periods from the 1970's through the 1990's and were copied by several manufacturers under different names.

During the 1990's several video games and a video show based on 'troll' dolls were created.

April 2013, DreamWorks Animation announced that they had purchased the Troll doll brand outright from the Dam company.

Paramount just slotted Michael Bay’s anticipated Benghazi siege pic 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi for early next year, on January 15, setting up a box office showdown with New Line’s comedy sequel Ride Along 2, Open Road’s kiddie follow-up The Nut Job 2 and Sony’s Ya franchise hopeful The 5th Wave.

The cast includes John Krasinski, Pablo Schreiber, Max Martini, David Denman and James Badge Dale.

Chloë Grace Moretz Replacing Dakota Fanning In Brain On Fire

29 June 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After starring opposite Charlize Theron in Gillian Flynn adaptation Dark Places, which opens August 7, Chloë Grace Moretz is reteaming with the Oscar winner for indie memoir adaptation Brain on Fire, replacing Dakota Fanning in the lead role.

Chloë Grace Moretz Joins Brain On Fire

28 June 2015 6:54 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There’s another round of changes for indie dramas happening at the moment. We reported on Wednesday that Dakota Fanning was replacing Mia Wasikowska in Brimstone. Which means that director Gerard Barrett needed someone new to star in Brain On Fire. Step forward Chloë Moretz. No, despite the title, it’s not a Scanners-style sci-fi thriller. Brain On Fire has been adapted from Susannah Cahalan’s memoir, which was subtitled My Month Of Madness. The book chronicles Cahalan’s real-life experiences being diagnosed with a mystery illness that left her labelled psychotic, violent, and a dangerous flight risk. She woke up alone in a hospital room confined to the bed, unable to speak or move and with no memory of what happened. In the maelstrom, she’d lost everything: a promising newspaper career and her first serious relationship, and it took a lot of strength and the support of her family to get through it. »

What are the Saturn Awards? 10 things you need to know

25 June 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Saturn Awards have been around for over 40 years, and chances are you've never heard of them. So what are they, then? As someone who has covered two past ceremonies (2010 and 2011), I was frankly shocked to discover that actual giant celebrities and directors attend the show every year. Among the big names the years I attended: A-list filmmakers Guillermo del Toro and Sam Raimi, "Carrie" and "Let Me In" star Chloe Grace Moretz, "True Detective's" Michelle Monaghan and "Chuck" star Zachary Levi. Not exactly the Oscars! But still impressive for a ceremony that isn't televised or generally talked about. So what are they, then, again? With the 41st annual ceremony set to take place tonight, below I've put together a list of 10 things you need to know about this mysterious, long-running Hollywood fete. »

Dark Places (2015) Movie Trailer 2: Charlize Theron + Devil Worshippers = Sold.

19 June 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Dark Places Trailer 2. Gilles Paquet-Brenner‘s Dark Places (2015) movie trailer 2 stars Charlize TheronNicholas HoultChloë Grace Moretz, Corey Stoll, and Christina HendricksDark Places‘ plot synopsis: “A woman who survived the brutal killing of her family as a child is forced to confront the events of that day by a secret society obsessed with solving notorious crimes.”

This is the second trailer for the Charlize Theron thriller based on a Gillian Flynn novel. In the wake of the success of Gone, Girl, it seems her source materials have increased in value. This looks pretty decent. A procedural, of sorts, to find who really murdered her family. Her brother is innocent, this trailer tells us. Devil worshippers are involved, this trailer tells us. That is essentially all I need to know to be sold on this film. It’s strange to see Hoult and Theron together again in a film »

Watch: Charlize Theron Solves A Murder in Trailer for Adaptation of Gillian Flynn's 'Dark Places'

Read More: First International Poster For 'Gone Girl' Author Gillian Flynn's 'Dark Places' Starring Charlize Theron In a new eerie trailer for "Dark Places," the murder of Libby's (Charlize Theron) family is shrouded in more mystery than she thought possible. While the clip shows us Libby's disturbed brother murdering her family and ending up in jail, it also hints that he may actually be innocent. Directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner, "Dark Places" is based on the novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn. If "Gone Girl" taught us anything, it's to expect plot twists and turns galore.  The film also stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Christina Hendricks, Corey Stoll, and Tye Sheridan. "Dark Places" is now available to rent on DirectTV.

Review: 'Dark Places' Starring Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Christina Hendricks, Tye Sheridan & Chloe Grace Moretz

19 June 2015 6:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Everyone enjoys a brief opening paragraph, so why don't we spend it listing all the things that "Dark Places," from director Gilles Paquet-Brenner ("Sarah's Key"), gets right. Its cast is undoubtedly committed, particularly a convincingly grimy Charlize Theron, and an enjoyably off-the-leash Chloe Grace Moretz, though it feels like they signed on to different films, and continued under that misapprehension all the way through shooting. Christina Hendricks is decent in a frumpy role that is sold from under her by the film's last-act twists. Nicholas Hoult, alongside his "Mad Max: Fury Road" co-star, has little to do (zero mouth-spraying), while Tye Sheridan again proves he's unsurpassable in the surly, misunderstood adolescent stakes, though even his talents cannot convince us he'll grow up to be Corey Stoll. The Barry Ackroyd photography is unobjectionably gritty. Eyelines match. It's all screamingly competent. Read More: Watch: Charlize Theron, Nicholas »
