Horror's Final Girls: What happened to the stars of Halloween, Scream?

28 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

After a bombardment of terrible sequels and remakes, the horror movie genre is undergoing something of a renaissance of late with the excellent Babadook and this week's It Follows leading the charge.

Both films are driven by strong performances from up-and-coming female stars (Essie Davis and Maika Monroe), which brings to mind a classic horror movie trope: the Final Girl. Most prevalent in slasher films, the Final Girl is the last character standing who confronts a killer/ghost/demon and lives to tell the tale.

Digital Spy looks back at 7 of our favourite horror movie Final Girls, why they're iconic and what they're up to now...

1. Neve Campbell - Sidney Prescott in Scream

Many horror fans thought Drew Barrymore would end up being Scream's Final Girl when they first watched Wes Craven's 1996 horror, but the director offed her in the opening moments leaving Neve Campbell's Sidney Prescott to face down Ghostface. »

Week in Review: Spend the night at the Godzilla Hotel in Japan

27 February 2015 10:36 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anyone who has ever watched the Godzilla films knows that he isn’t a monster at all. More of a protector really. So this hotel room opening in Tokyo, really is quite soothing to know you have someone looking over you. Not scary at all, honestly.

For just $334 a night on weekdays, you can have Godzilla’s hand looming over you as you sleep and a statue of the kaiju peacefully guarding your doorway. You can even get a room that looks directly out at a Godzilla head mounted on the roof of the hotel.

Ah the Japanese; so like us.

We all know Michael Keaton should’ve won an Oscar last Sunday. In fact, he probably thought so too. Take a look at this Vine, in which it kind of looks like he’s putting a piece of paper, maybe an acceptance speech back into his jacket pocket right »

Another Producer Joins the Growing Sony Family

25 February 2015 2:27 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Things are looking up at Sony. Two producers with great taste, ex-Sony chief Amy Pascal and ex-Warners boss Jeff Robinov, will make big-budget movies for their respective labels, while ex-Fox head Tom Rothman, who also knows a good movie when he sees one, will run the movie studio. For the moment, Sony's in-house production label Columbia is being run by Doug Belgrad, with ex-Sony lot producer Michael De Luca working with Hannah Minghella as co-presidents of production. Expect both Pascal and De Luca to work with powerful New York producer and literary tastemonger Scott Rudin, who will no longer be working on "Cleopatra" with Angelina Jolie, but is pursuing a reboot of the "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" franchise without free-spending David Fincher. Rumors are running rampant about casting, but I hear a deal is imminent. Rooney Mara was tight with Fincher, but she must have a contract. Now De »

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo sequel unlikely

24 February 2015 10:19 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rooney Mara admits that the chances of her returning for The Girl Who Played With Fire are unlikely...

As more and more time passes, the chances of David Fincher returning to film The Girl Who Played With Fire look slimmer and slimmer. And even if Fincher didn't return to direct, the chances of Rooney Mara returning to reprise the role of Lisbeth Salander that she first realised in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo are looking slight.

"I don't think it's going to happen", Mara has now admitted. Chatting at an Oxfam benefit in New York, she said that "I'm sad never to do it again, but it just doesn't seem like it's in the cards. I think because [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script ... it will result in something". And of that script, she said that "I can reveal as much as it »

Rooney Mara Says a 'Dragon Tattoo' Sequel Is Likely Dead

24 February 2015 1:25 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Whether you consider this "news" or simply confirmation of what most already assumed to be true, E! Online reported over the weekend that the much-mired sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is more or less dead in the icy Nordic waters. Their sourcec The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo herself, star Rooney Mara. Mara -- Oscar-nominated for her role as the compelling and beautifully complex ward-of-the-state, social outcast, and genius hacker Lisbeth Salander -- told E! last week, "I don't think it's going to happen. I'm sad never to do it again, but it just doesn't seem like it's in the cards." The idea of a sequel has been kicked around plenty over the last three years, but with the first film underperforming at the box office and the franchise's returns likely diminishing with each passing day, I can't say the news comes as a surprise. So alas, »

Rooney Mara Says ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ Sequel Is Probably Dead

24 February 2015 12:52 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you’ve been paying attention to this blog for a few years — or really any outlet that has tracked the back-and-forth drama — you’ll know we’ve been saying it’s very unlikely there will be a sequel to David Fincher’s “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” Released in 2011 — and losing momentum by the minute — the sequel grossed $102 million in the U.S. and only $232 million worldwide after a thirteen-week run. As a global best-seller a la “Fifty Shades Of Grey”— which in contrast has already grossed $409 million globally after two weeks — this is a major underperformance. Add on top of that drama that Fincher fought tooth and nail with producer Scott Rudin and former Sony honcho Amy Pascal every step of the way, right down to the casting of Rooney Mara (who no one at the studio one really liked for the gig). And that's not to »

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo 2 Probably Isn't Happening

24 February 2015 11:25 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo hit back in 2011, it seemed a foregone conclusion that David Fincher.s adaptation of the Swedish novel and film trilogy would get right to work on a second chapter. That, however, has yet to happen due to a number of reasons; notably, its somewhat disappointing box-office performance. With a domestic return of $102 million on the studio.s $90 million budget and even the addition of its $130 million foreign gross, the film yielded far less than its initial stellar expectations. In fact, in a recent interview, star Rooney Mara expressed serious doubts about her character Lisbeth Salander.s return for a potential sequel. In an interview with E! Online, Rooney Mara was asked about where her once inevitable franchise now stands. Her answer was blunt and less than optimistic. According to Mara, I don't think it's going to happen. I'm sad never to do it »

Rooney Mara Says 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' Sequel is Dead

24 February 2015 9:22 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If you're one of those fans who has been waiting patiently for a sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, you might want to sit down for this news. E! News recently caught up with the film's star Rooney Mara at an Oxfam benefit in New York and asked whether or not we would see The Girl Who Played with Fire make it to the big screen. Sadly, Mara's response was not promising in the least as she said, "“I don’t think it’s going to happen. I’m sad never to do it again, but it just doesn’t seem like it’s in the cards." The first film came out in 2011, and hope has lingered that we might see the sequel, but it really seems dead. However, Mara speculates that just because she won't star in a sequel as Lisbeth Salander doesn't mean they won't do something with the property, »

"Dragon Tattoo" Sequel Won't Happen?

24 February 2015 7:07 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It was a best-selling phenomenon. It spawned a trilogy of hit Swedish movies which turned Noomi Rapace into a global star. It also generated an American adaptation helmed by David Fincher that scored good notices and a decent $232 million worldwide.

Yet with a budget of $90 million, Fincher's R-rated English language adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-seller "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" wasn't a runaway hit. As a result, progress on the sequel has stumbled since the first film's release over three years ago.

Sadly it now appears the project may well be dead. Rooney Mara, who took on the iconic role of Lisbeth Salander in the first movie, has indicated in an interview with E! Online that the second novel in the series "The Girl Who Played with Fire" isn't likely to get a U.S. screen treatment:

Rooney Mara Says Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Sequel is Dead

24 February 2015 2:02 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

David Fincher's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" remake hit theaters in 2011 and earned $233 million on a budget of $90 million. Even though it seems that Sony Pictures would want to proceed with a sequel and eventually remake the entire franchise, we have yet to get any movement on the next installment. Back in September, Fincher revealed that the studio wouldn't simply just abandon the property. "I think because [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script, it will result in something," he explained. "The script that we now have has huge potential. I can reveal that it is extremely different from the book." But in a new interview with Rooney Mara, who played the lead role in the first film, the actress revealed that the franchise is dead. "I don't think it's going to happen," she said. "I'm sad never to do it again, but »

Rooney Mara Says The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Sequel Is Unlikely

23 February 2015 2:07 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy of books introduced the world to hacker whiz Lisbeth Salander, who rose to prominence in the original adapted movie series. In that first trio of pics, Noomi Rapace played Salander, and was eager to pass on the torch to another actress for the U.S. remakes. Enter Rooney Mara, who confidently picked up the mantle for David Fincher’s 2011 remake – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Sadly, that first stab at rebooting the material for American audiences flopped. Mostly a critical and financial failure, it seemed all hope was lost for igniting a sequel. Until, strangely enough, the project began to gather traction in 2013. Seven scribe Andrew Kevin Walker was enlisted to draft a script for the follow-up – The Girl Who Played With Fire – and late last year, Fincher himself suggested the franchise still had life.

While his comments pointed to an entirely new direction for the second movie, »

'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' Sequel Not Happening?

23 February 2015 12:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Early in the month of February, Sony announced that Co-Chairman of Spe and Chairman of the Sony Motion Picture Group Amy Pascal was stepping down from her post to concentrate on producing. At the time, some of the projects sitting under Pascal were called into question, namely the Spider-Man reboot, which we now know is set for release in 2017 after the character first appears in Captain America: Civil War, and the next two chapters in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo saga, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. While it seemed like a sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo might eventually happen someday, star Rooney Mara, who took on the iconic role of literary character Lisbeth Salander in the first movie, now claims the project is probably dead.

With every passing month the likelihood of Sony producing another film based on Stieg Larsson‘s series of Dragon Tattoo books seems to shrink.

21 February 2015 8:18 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rooney Mara has admitted a Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sequel is unlikely to happen.

Mara, who starred in the 2011 film, told E! News that she felt sad she'll not be returning to the role of Lisbeth Salander.

"I don't think it's going to happen," Mara said.

"I'm sad never to do it again, but it just doesn't seem like it's in the cards."

Director David Fincher previously said that he is still hoping to make a sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and was confident about the chances.

The 2011 version of Stieg Larsson's best-selling novel starred Mara alongside Daniel Craig, Christopher Plummer and Stellan Skarsgård.

Mara was nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award for her role.

Rooney Mara: Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Sequel Is Pretty Much Dead

21 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We've got some bad news. The much-wanted Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sequel won't be coming to a theater near you. Rooney Mara, who starred in director David Fincher's movie adaptation of the best-selling novel, confirms it's a lost cause. "I don't think it's going to happen," she told me earlier this week at the Oxfam dinner she hosted with Barneys New York at Chateau Marmont. "I'm sad never to do it again, but it just doesn't seem like it's in the cards."

Star Wars Spin-Off: 10 Characters Felicity Jones Could Be Playing

17 February 2015 2:32 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Focus Features

British actress Felicity Jones may have been wasted in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as “Felicia” (a character most fans were hoping to see become the Black Cat had the franchise survived), but The Theory Of Everything star now looks set to find blockbuster success with a leading role in Godzilla director Gareth Edwards’ secretive Star Wars spin-off.

The Oscar nominated actress beat the likes of Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) to win the part, but who exactly she is going to play remains a mystery. There have been rumours that the spin-off which is set to be released on December 16th, 2016 will focus on a group of bounty hunters hired by the Rebels to steal the plans for the first Death Star, but like most Star Wars rumours from the past year or so, it’s impossible to say if it’s true. »

StreamFix: 5 erotic thrillers to watch right now

12 February 2015 5:33 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Fifty Shades of Grey" is in theaters this weekend. Have you heard? In celebration of this stunning cinematic achievement, we've trawled through all the streaming sites to bring you a list of five worthwhile erotic thrillers to watch online right now! Particularly useful for those who, you know, aren't interested in seeing "50 Shades" (they do exist!) but are nevertheless jonesing for some steely sexual tension to spice up their weekends. "Basic Instinct" (1992) The film that made Sharon Stone a star is still one of her best. Watch the aesthetically-gifted stunner command the screen with that placid, aquamarine stare. Forget the "no undies" leg crossing (or don't!) -- that interrogation scene is a classic for way better reasons than a single shot of Stone's naughty parts. "Nymphomaniac Pts. I and II" (2014) How about four hours of erotic thrillerisms? Charlotte Gainsbourg's commanding underbite does some of its best work in Lars von Trier »
