Boom. Here's your first look at Eddie O'Keefe's upcoming period crime drama about two young lovers on a cross-country road trip to La to kill the "King of Rock n Roll" called Shangri-La Suite.

2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: James Franco’s In Dubious Battle

24 November 2015 12:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The unpredictability with this filmmaker-actor is that he has got plenty of projects stoking the fire and we never know which item might push forth next. Prolific, inexhaustible, enervating and stoic with literature’s greats, James Franco‘s selected career path merits its own NYC course of its own. Franco could probably fit it in his schedule and teach it. After tending to the rabbits on Broadways’ Of Mice and Men, it’s Steinbeck follow in the footsteps of Cormac McCarthy and William Faulkner as book to film interests. Production began on In Dubious Battle at the beginning of the year. Mostly shot in Atlanta, this amassed a crew of players comprised of Analeigh Tipton, Josh Hutcherson, Selena Gomez, Bryan Cranston, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ashley Greene, Nat Wolff, Ed Harris, Duvall, Zach Braff, Austin Stowell, Keegan Allen, Darin Cooper, Ahna O’Reilly, John Savage, Beth Grant, Scott Haze and of course Franco himself. »

Emily Browning Is Done Playing A 'Hot Babe'

10 September 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Australian actress Emily Browning has had a fairly varied filmography, and some of her roles have certainly exploited her good looks on screen ranging from Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch" to the often disturbing "Sleeping Beauty".

Currently out doing promotional rounds for the Tom Hardy-led UK crime drama "Legend," Browning spoke with The Guardian and says she's done being eye candy on screen and/or playing a vapid love interest role. The trouble is, it's a role that is fairly common in studio films and one she's had to do herself at times (eg. "Pompeii"):

"I'm so determined not to play the hot babe that doesn't say anything, that can't have an opinion, but it's so difficult to resist all of that. Hollywood movies are made for white men, and that's something I think about and which bothers me all the time."

Pals Danny and Frank spend the summer after high school working as lifeguards while figuring out their future.

Both guys are unsure of what they want to do now that they are out of high school but they know for sure that they want to have a great time.

Batgirl Yvonne Craig. Batgirl Yvonne Craig dead at 78: Also featured in 'Star Trek' episode, Elvis Presley movies Yvonne Craig, best known as Batgirl in the 1960s television series Batman, died of complications from breast cancer on Monday, Aug. 17, '15, at her home in Pacific Palisades, in the Los Angeles Westside. Craig (born May 16, 1937, in Taylorville, Illinois), who had been undergoing chemotherapy for two years, was 78. Beginning (and ending) in the final season of Batman (1967-1968), Yvonne Craig played both Commissioner Gordon's librarian daughter Barbara Gordon and her alter ego, the spunky Batgirl – armed with a laser-beaming electric make-up kit “which will destroy anything.” Unlike semi-villainess Catwoman (Julie Newmar), Batgirl was wholly on the side of Righteousness, infusing new blood into the series' increasingly anemic Dynamic Duo: Batman aka Bruce Wayne (Adam West) and Boy Wonder Robin aka Bruce Wayne's beloved pal Dick Grayson (Burt Ward). “They chose »

Staten Island Summer Trailer Features a Boatload of SNL Cameos

1 July 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The first trailer for the indie comedy Staten Island Summer has been released online, and it is chock full of familiar faces. Written by Saturday Night Live head writer and Weekend Update co-host Colin Jost, the film tells the story of two recent high school graduates and their last summer as lifeguards before they head off for college. It’s a premise that’s been covered countless times before, but Staten Island Summer was inspired by Jost’s own experiences, and he enlisted a ridiculous number of SNL alums to appear. Surrounding the film’s stars Graham Phillips (The Good Wife) and Zack Pearlman (The Inbetweeners) are folks like Bobby Moynihan, Will Forte, Cecily Strong, Fred Armisen, Kate McKinnon, Mike O’Brien, and many more. The SNL cameos go a long way towards making this trailer an enjoyable affair, and while it’s well-treaded territory, Jost and director Rhys Thomas »

1 July 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A pair of clueless boys get some much needed wisdom over the summer with the first trailer, poster and photos for Staten Island Summer, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies. The upcoming comedy, which debuts on Netflix July 31, features a slew of both current and former Saturday Night Live stars, such as Fred Armisen, Bobby Moynihan, Will Forte, Cecily Strong and Kate McKinnon, although they merely have cameo roles. The script was written by SNL's Weekend Update co-host Colin Jost, with Lorne Michaels serving as executive producer.

The story centers on two boys played by Graham Phillips and Zack Pearlman, best friends and recent high school graduates who get jobs as lifeguards during the summer as they try to figure out what to do with the rest of their lives. The plot is inspired by Colin Jost's own personal experiences. Netflix picked up the comedy movie last month.

Exclusive: Joe Dante Discusses "Burying The Ex" And The Films That Influenced His Career

28 June 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer 

Director Joe Dante is revered by his fans not only as a filmmaker but also because of his genuine passion for classic and cult cinema. Dante, like so many other filmmakers and actors who became successes, was a protégé of Roger Corman, starting out as an editor. Before long, he had progressed to directing and had a hit with his 1978 horror flick "Piranha". His deft ability to make audiences cringe as well as laugh became his trademark. More successful films followed including a segment of the "Twilight Zone" feature film, his werewolf classic "The Howling", "Gremlins", which is considered a classic by the generation who saw it as children, "Innerspace", "Amazon Women on the Moon", "The 'Burbs", "Matinee" and "Small Soldiers". In recent years, Dante has been busy operating his extremely popular web site Trailers From Hell, which showcases original movie trailers from decades ago, complete with »

Burying The Ex: Alan Trezza on His Zombie Rom-Com and the Magic of Joe Dante

23 June 2015 8:13 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Now available on VOD and in select theaters is Joe Dante's (Gremlins, The 'Burbs) zombie comedy Burying the Ex. From a script by Alan Trezza, the film stars Anton Yelchin as Max, a nice guy eager to break up with his overbearing girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene) when fate intervenes and she gets hit by a bus. Weeks later he meets his dream girl Olivia (Alexandra Daddario, who is making a career out of playing dream girls), but everything goes to hell when Evelyn rises from the grave convinced she and Max are still an item. After visiting the set last year (you can check out my on-set interviews with Greene here and Yelchin here), I recently had an opportunity to speak with Trezza about the film. He talked about going from a self-produced short film to landing Joe Dante as the director, what makes Dante so special, finding the right leads, »

Review: Burying The Ex

20 June 2015 6:10 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

There’s a regular opinion of popular filmmakers hitting their peak and not being able to make good films after said peak. Masters of horror such as Carpenter, Argento and Hooper are quite often thrown into those false statements because of a film here or there (sometimes more than one), and as fan of those filmmakers, it’s somewhat of an irritating thing to hear. After Gremlins/The Howling director Joe Dante gave audiences the family friendly film The Hole, those who were once Dante fanatics seemed to be throwing him into that awful opinion, not having realized that The Hole was pretty much a kids’ horror film. Proving the naysayers completely wrong with the zombie horror/comedy Burying The Ex, Dante returns with a fresh and rejuvenated approach, and a film that not only pay homage to the days of E.C. Comics, but to horror fans and Los Angeles as well. »

Burying The Ex Review

19 June 2015 5:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’m a Joe Dante fan. That is something I cannot hide. His early work made him a horror icon, and Gremlins stands as one of my favorite movies of all time. These are facts, and if I ever get to meet Joe Dante, I’d like nothing more than to buy him a drink and hear him reminisce about the good old days. You know, the exciting, creative times that yielded scene after scene of infectious horror fun.

Basically, any time before Burying The Ex happened.

It’s not that Dante created a soulless romcom disguised as a cheeky horror comedy. It’s more that any voiceless filmmaker could have made Burying The Ex. No scene glistens with Dante’s typically demented polish, and everyone involved seems to be phoning it in. There’s not a single genuine moment of chemistry to be found between the three members of this undead love triangle, »

Review: Burying The Ex

19 June 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Joe Dante has always been a filmmaker that I've deeply admired and I feel that a good amount of his work doesn't get discussed nearly enough. I completely get this talented filmmaker's attraction to the EC Comics-style concept in Burying the Ex, but Alan Trezza's script is too lazy and uninspired for this movie to be anywhere close to a comeback for Joe Dante.

Obviously made under time constraints and budget limitations, with the proper nourishment and a proper rewrite from Dante himself, I could easily see Burying the Ex in theory being a project that could compliment Dante's sensibilities. His trademark influences of Mel Blanc-inspired frenetic humor and the dark surrealistic atmosphere absorbed from monster movie matinees would have been the perfect marriage for this movie's living dead love triangle concept. All Joe Dante needed was a solid script, because everybody knows there is only so much »

Review: Joe Dante tries to spin gold with the thin script for 'Burying The Ex'

18 June 2015 9:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Alan Trezza's screenplay for "Burying The Ex" might as well have had Joe Dante's name above the title from the moment he wrote it, because it is a perfect fit for the filmmaker's sensibilities. Dante's three leads (Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene, and Alexandra Daddario) are all game for whatever he asks of them, and they seem to be having a blast with the material. There's a slightly muted quality to the film, though, which keeps it from being a complete pleasure, but considering how rarely we get a new film from Dante, I'll take something slight over nothing at all. There's a hint of "Death Becomes Her" in this film's DNA, and in certain sequences, Dante's live-action cartoon aesthetic is pretty clearly expressed. If anything, I wish the movie pushed some of those ideas further, because it feels like Dante's having fun and so is the cast. Anton Yelchin plays Max, »
