Interview: ‘Digging for Fire’ Director Joe Swanberg at 2015 Chicago Critics Film Festival

2 May 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – He is the master of loose and natural dialogue in his many micro-budget films. Director Joe Swanberg has worked his way up the movie ladder through perseverance and staying true to his vision, despite the obstacles. His film, “Digging for Fire,” opened the Chicago Critics Film Festival on May 1, 2015.

“Digging for Fire” is about the dynamic of the marriage relationship, as it is challenged by the real life of children, money issues and couple status. The mystery involves Tim (Jake Johnson), when he finds a gun and bone fragments at at home he his wife Lee (Rosemarie DeWitt), and his son Jude are house sitting at…but the mystery means nothing next to their mutual indecision about the state of their marriage.

Dimensions Blur In New Poster For Gil Kenan’s Poltergeist Reboot

28 April 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With little under a month until its release, the marketing campaign for 20th Century Fox’s modern Poltergeist retelling is beginning to plateau; after all, there’s only so much of a horror film you can tease before undercutting the element of surprise. But before Gil Kenan’s reboot looms into theaters, the studio has unveiled what is surely the last poster for the upcoming movie, showcasing the fine, neon-blue line between our world and the next.

Taking a slightly different approach to the seminal, Tobe Hooper classic from 1982, the Monster House director will introduce us to a young couple portrayed by Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt who soon unearth dark, supernatural forces beneath the idyllic exterior of the new suburban home. Said forces soon manifest themselves through various electrical equipment in the house – hence that iconic shot of hands pressed against the television set – and kidnap the pair’s youngest daughter. »

Mad Men, Ep. 7.08: “Severance” – the life not lived

6 April 2015 4:16 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Mad Men, Season 7: Episode 8 – “Severance”

Written by Matthew Weiner

Directed by Scott Hornbacher

Airs Sunday nights at 10 on AMC

When Don Draper stops to wonder if he knows the waitress Diana, it’s more than an eerie foreshadowing of learning about Rachel’s death. Don has a type. There are usually exceptions to rules, but for the most part, Diana represents the myriad brunettes that Don’s been tangled up with in the history of Mad Men (and if you thought she looked an awful lot like Rosemarie DeWitt’s Midge in particular, you weren’t the only one). This is The End of an Era for AMC’s long-running drama, whose series memory and use of echoing and repetition have always been some of its greatest assets when making a point. It’s no surprise, then, that “Severance” is haunted by the ghosts of Mad Men‘s past »

The problem with the 'Poltergeist' remake

3 April 2015 6:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When it comes to glossy studio-backed haunted-house movies, "Poltergeist" was the first out of the gate and arguably remains the best, a thrilling big-budget adventure ride produced (and some would say partially directed) by Steven Spielberg that brought an Amblin-esque sheen to a creaky sub-genre harkening back to such "old dark house" fare as 1927's "The Cat and the Canary" and 1944's "The Uninvited." At the time it undoubtedly felt like a fresh take, and even more than 1979's "The Amityville Horror" it set the template for the modern supernatural horror movie. The upcoming Gil Kenan-directed remake, meanwhile? Can't say I'm chomping at the bit for it. Though I felt cautiously optimistic after hearing about the talent attached -- "Rabbit Hole" playwright and screenwriter David Lindsay-Abaire wrote the script, while Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie Dewitt were set to star as the central couple who fight to free their young »

New Poltergeist Trailer Asks What Are You Afraid Of?

2 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I want you all to clear your minds. They already know what scares you.” It was effective when Tangina (Zelda Rubenstein) said it in 1982. It rattles the nerves again to hear it in the brand new trailer for the supernatural thriller, Poltergeist.

This summer, legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a suburban family’s fight to save their youngest daughter, when she is captured by the evil forces haunting their home.

Also, be sure to check out Poltergeist‘s terrifying “Fear Factory”, where fans who post about their own fears using the hashtag #WhatAreYouAfraidOf will be sent personalized content bringing those fears to life.

The Poltergeist Reboot Might Be Even More Terrifying Than the Original

2 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Not scared enough by the first pictures from the Poltergeist reboot? The new trailer will fix that. One of several of 2015's upcoming horror movies, the 1985 classic has been reworked to give nightmares to a whole new generation. This version - which will be in 3D - stars Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt as parents of youngster Madison (Kennedi Clements), who disappears inside their newly purchased home. She's not just hiding under the bed, either. An evil spirit has taken ahold of the house, and it starts controlling things to scare the ever-loving crap out of its owners. Enter the medium, a role originated by Zelda Rubinstein and now played by Mad Men's Jared Harris. The trailer looks really fun (in a terrifying way), and the movie opens on July 31. Here's the original, as well. »
