Alan Rickman, Olivia Cooke ("Bates Motel," Ouija") and Douglas Booth ("Jupiter Ascending," "Great Expectations") have boarded Juan Carlos Medina's gothic murder mystery "The Limehouse Golem" at Lionsgate.
A series of murders has shaken the community to the point where people believe that only a legendary creature from dark times, a mythical Golem, must be responsible.

The Wachowski's latest science fiction adventure, Jupiter Ascending, may not have lit up the box office, but there was still plenty of fun for movie-goers willing to give it a chance. Today, Warner Bros. have announced details on the film's blu-ray release, including a date and special features, so you can check it out at home!
While I didn't "love" Jupiter Ascending as much as I wanted to, I didn't hate the film either. It has a lot of great elements behind it, with impressive visuals and characters you want to know more about. While I wish it had been paced differently, I don't exactly get all the hatred the movie gets either. I thought it was still a lot of fun, and if you skipped out on it, I think it's worth watching when it hits blu-ray on June 2. Check out the features coming on the disc when it »

In just a couple months, school will be out for the summer, but for the moment, class is in session with "The Riot Club." The latest from "An Education" director Lone Scherfig recently went into limited release, and today we have an exclusive clip from the film. Starring Sam Claflin, Max Irons, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, Ben Schnetzer, and Jessica Brown Findlay, and adapted from Laura Wade's acclaimed 2010 play, “Posh” (she also wrote the screenplay), the film takes viewers inside the rotten inner-workings of The Riot Club at Oxford University. It's here where the wealthy, privileged, upper crust youth let their hair down in some truly noxious ways. And in this clip, you see them assembled, drinking with enthusiasm, and singing "God Save The Queen." "The Riot Club" is now playing in limited release and is available on VOD. Watch below. »

Screen Gems has issued new 2016 release dates for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and When the Bough Breaks. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will hit theaters on February 19, 2016, going up against the EuropaCorp thriller Shut In. When the Bough Breaks will hit theaters on September 16, 2016, which is currently the only movie set for release on that date, but it comes just one week before Warner Bros.' The Lego Movie spinoff Ninjago on September 23, 2016.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is based on Seth Grahame-Smith's novel of the same name. The story takes the characters from Jane Austen's literary classic Pride and Prejudice and puts them up against a zombie infestation in 19th Century England. Burr Steers directed the adaptation, which stars Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, Emma Greenwell, Matt Smith, Lena Headey and Charles Dance.

Like the living dead that roam the 19th-century English countryside of its story, the movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has refused to die, shambling on through multiple director and lead actor changes over the past several years to finally begin filming last September. Now we know when to expect to see the living dead of Meryton, as an official release date for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has now been set for early next year.
In the film, “the heroine, Liz Bennett (James), is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home but chafes at the stiff social mores of Victorian England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague.”

At long last, a big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s gleefully silly Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a supernatural send-up of the Jane Austen classic, is happening. Today, Screen Gems announced that the Burr Steers-directed horror-comedy will hit screens on February 19th, 2016.
The pic will follow Victorian lady Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James, of Cinderella fame) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote) and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse), whose attempts to combat the everyday pressures of life in their class-conscious society are complicated by the presence of cranium-craving zombies.
As it stands, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is only contending with thriller Shut In in its weekend, though it’s opening one week after heavy hitters Deadpool and Zoolander 2 (plus whatever Nicholas Sparks trifle 20th Century »

After years of languishing in development hell, I’m still surprised that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies actually got made, let alone that it’s coming to theaters. Screen Gems has announced Burr Steers’ horror-comedy, based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, will finally open on February 19, 2016. The story follows Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) as they try to navigate societal pressures of the landed gentry and fend off hoards of zombies. I’m surprised the studio didn’t move the film up a week and get in that Valentine’s Day crowd. Of course, that would put it against the heavy competition of Deadpool and Zoolander 2. Currently, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is only sharing its weekend with the thriller Shut In. The film also stars Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, »

Those of us who lead hapless lives know how frightening getting up in the morning can be. Instead of rising and embracing the daylight with an ardent cuddle and a zealous "Yahoo!" we see grey clouds overhead and wonder aloud, "What now?" Another egg carton with broken shells? A second bedbug infestation within twelve months? Still no replies to our Christian Mingles ad even though we've noted we can recite the Book of Revelation by heart in Latin?
Ah, if only we were born into a family of elites. The ultra-rich. Aristocrats with an enviable gene pool.
But instead we're impoverished and pear-shaped with squinty eyes and in need of Proactiv+.
On top of these misfortunes, we really know the gods are against us if while fingering the remote, we accidentally come across Joshua Jackson in The Skulls (2000), and begin to watch it out of inertia. This incapacitating thriller was inspired by Yale's secretive society, »

When The Riot Club debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last September, I predicted it would be your next favorite pretty-boys flick. Think The History Boys meets Skulls, but with satirical commentary on the English class system and a cast straight out of British GQ. Based on Laura Wade’s play Posh, the film follows a club of hedonistic wankers, including The Hunger Games’ Sam Claflin, Jupiter Ascending’s Douglas Booth, and The Host’s Max Irons. But no cast member has more to chew on than Claflin, whose character Alastair has spent his life living in the shadow of his older brother, and [spoiler] who actually stands on a table during a debauched formal dinner and makes a speech about how much he hates poor people. Claflin, for the record, grew up very much not posh in Ipswich, Suffolk. Vulture spoke to him by phone about playing the bad guy for once, »

This weekend, Will Ferrell turns to Kevin Hart to prep him for prison in the (very) R-rated comedy "Get Hard," an alien on the run lands on Earth and makes friends with an adventurous child in the animated "Home," and a middle-aged couple (Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts) has their lives overturned when they meet a disarming young couple (Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried) in "While We're Young."
Also in theaters this weekend: "Serena" stars Bradley Cooper as a timber magnate in Depression-era North Carolina whose empire becomes complicated when he marries Serena (Jennifer Lawrence). "The Salt of the Earth" follows world-renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado as he embarks on the discovery of pristine territories and grandiose landscapes to capture the planet's beauty in his latest photographic project. In "The Riot Club," two first-year Oxford students join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed in a single evening. The film stars Sam Claflin, »

“Nothing without joy, everything to excess.” For the 10 members of the all-male cloak and dagger society called The Riot Club, that is a motto to live by. All of them are among the hardest-working students at Oxford University and demand they play just as relentlessly as they work. Several of them are descendants of nobility or the UK’s most powerful political leaders. Fraternizing with any person beneath an upper-class status would be out of the question for several of them. As for ordinary men and women who disagree with their archaic, conservative values: watch out.
If spending time with the most elite of English swills sounds like a fun time at the movies, then The Riot Club should be a must-see. Anyone looking to mock the spoiled rotten virtues of the upper percentile of the 1%, though, will not find too much to heckle here. The film cannot boast the »

Oscar-nominated Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club, has a new trailer for its anticipated March 27 Us release. Scherfig is a Dogme 95-er and Oscar-nominated for her film An Education (2009). Although most of Scherfig’s eight films are romantic comedies, The Riot Club is darker material. In the film, young Oxford University students join a “Riot Club” and exercise their darkest thoughts about “poor people”; probably murder ensues. The cast is a chorus of rising Britons led by Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer, Downton Abbey‘s Jessica Brown Findlay, as well as Sam Claflin, Max Irons, and Douglas Booth. The film is an adaptation by Laura Wade of her own West End play, Posh.
Behind the camera Scherfig has been a creative and detailed director since her breakthrough film Italian for Beginners (2000), which won the Silver Berlin Bear in 2001. Watch the new trailer for The Riot Club below:

yt id="Es-jm4iDRRQ" width="500" I could have seen The Riot Club at the Toronto Film Festival last year, but I feel like it's a film I've seen too many times before. Am I wrong or are you seeing something different herec Filthy. Rich. Spoiled. Rotten. A band of overprivileged rich boys run wild in this savagely funny satire of money, sex and power. In the elite realm of Oxford University, no society is more exclusive than The Riot Club, the ultra-selective fraternity for Britain's most privileged sons. When he's recruited to join, down-to-earth first-year student Miles (Max Irons) is at first amused--but he's about to get a taste of upper-crust entitlement at its ugliest when a hedonistic night of drinking and drugs spins out of control. Based on the play "Posh" by Laura Wade. Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education, One Day) Starring: Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, »

Filthy. Rich. Spoilt. Rotten. IFC Films has recently unveiled the official Us trailer for Lone Scherfig's The Riot Club, which will be getting released in March after initially premiering at Tiff 2014 last year. This debaucherous drama delves into the lives of the elite members of Oxford University's "Riot Club", based on the real-life Bullingdon Club, though I'm sure they want nothing to do with this. The young and beautiful cast of Riot Club includes Max Irons, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth, Jessica Brown Findlay, Natalie Dormer, Holliday Grainger, Olly Alexander, Tom Hollander and Sam Reid. As much as I am fond of director Lone Scherfig, I'm not any more interested in this than I was after the first trailer. Give it a shot. Here's the full trailer for Lone Scherfig's The Riot Club, officially from IFC Films (via The Film Stage): Set amongst the privileged elite of Oxford University, »

IFC Films has dropped a new trailer today for Lone Scherfig’s latest, The Riot Club. Based on Laura Wade’s West End play, Posh, the film follows the story of a young man at Oxford University as he attempts to gain acceptance into an exclusive, elitist fraternity. Think Neighbors through a stereotypical English lens.
The movie stars Max Irons as Miles Richards, whose every desire hinges upon joining the privileged group. The main bulk of the trailer serves to build up the prestige of the club, so as to possibly provide reason for why anyone would wish to be a member. Around the midway point it seems to veer into spoiler territory, but nevertheless, that first minute ought to entice potential viewers. While it’s yet to open in the U.S., the film did make its North American debut at last year’s Tiff, where it landed a crop of encouraging reviews. »
