Edward Furlong and Monica Keena Brave the End of the World in Aftermath

17 April 2014 2:51 PM, PDT

I love the end of the world movies. Really, can’t get enough of it. So Peter Engert’s “Aftermath” sounds like it’s right up my alley. Of course, whether the execution is worthy of my excitement remains to be seen, but hey, it’s got Edward Furlong from “Terminator: Judgement Day” fame, along with Monica Keena, so that’s not too bad. Check out the poster and some new images from “Aftermath.” No trailer yet, but that should be forthcoming, we suspect. When the devastating horror of a nuclear apocalypse becomes a reality, nine strangers find themselves holed up together in a farmhouse cellar. These would-be survivors are faced with dwindling supplies, radioactive air and the greatest threat of all – the hordes of zombie-like refugees who want in. Starring Edward Furlong, Monica Keena, Andre Royo and C.J. Thomason. Surviving on VOD and in theaters this July 18th. »

The Lego Movie Will Assemble on DVD/Blu-ray This June 17th

17 April 2014 2:39 PM, PDT

Everything will be awesome when “The Lego® Movie” arrives onto Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD 2-disc Special Edition, and Digital HD on June 17 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Village Roadshow Pictures. Directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” “21 Jump Street”), “The Lego Movie” is the hilarious story of a nobody who saves everybody. “The Lego Movie” stars Chris Pratt as the voice of Emmet, an ordinary Lego minifigure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, and Will Ferrell as the voice of President Business, aka Lord Business, an uptight CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life. Voicing the members of Emmet’s rebel crew on this heroic mission are Morgan Freeman (“Oblivion”) as the ancient mystic Vitruvius; Elizabeth Banks (“The Hunger Games”) as tough-as-nails Wyldstyle, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on »

17 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT

If you saw the latest episode of ABC’s “Agents of Shield” earlier this week, then you probably saw this minute-long behind-the-scenes featurette for James Gunn’s upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which features some fresh footage, interviews, and all that good stuff. It’s all part of Marvel’s plan to interconnect everything they do, and given their successes, you gotta admit, they sure know what the hell they’re doing and it seems to be working.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Hwayi: A Monster Boy (2013) Movie Review

17 April 2014 8:39 AM, PDT

Has it really been ten years since “Save the Green Planet”, still one of the best, not to mention wildest, Korean films in recent memory? There’s certainly been nothing quite like it since, and so it’s both a shock and a shame that it’s taken so long for director Jang Joon Hwan to follow it up, as he finally now has with “Hwayi: A Monster Boy”. Though on paper the film sounds like a kidnap and crime thriller, as expected from Jang, it’s far from straightforward, delving into dark and philosophical territory while packing in lots of graphic violence and surprises. Upcoming teen actor Yeo Jin Gu (hugely popular after roles in television series such as “The Moon that Embraces the Sun” and “I Miss You”) plays the 16-year-old Hwayi of the title, who as a young boy was kidnapped by a ruthless gang of criminals »

Today My Mother will Get Married (2013) Movie Review

17 April 2014 8:22 AM, PDT

(“Today My Mother Will Get Married” will be screening at the 2014 Chinese Visual Festival on May 13th at King’s College London.) Jin Ye’s “Today My Mother Will Get Married” is a Chinese independent fiction following a young boy called Cao Zi who lives with his mother in a small rural town in Manchuria. One day, he finds out that his mother is due to marry the rich local businessman Zhu Laosan, and decides to buy her a necklace to prove that he loves her more. Not having any money himself, Cao Zi teams with his friends Jiu Yi and Brother Hou for a scheme to steal goods from Zhu Laosan’s factory and sell them back to him, a plan which sadly fails. After more aborted attempts to raise the necessary funds, including the theft of a French horn and an attack on a taxi driver, Cao Zi »

David Michod’s The Rover Gets a Bleak Full Trailer and Two New Posters

17 April 2014 8:07 AM, PDT

Man, thinks are not going to end well for David Michod’s “The Rover,” his follow-up to the critically acclaimed film “Animal Kingdom.” “The Rover” stars Guy Pearce as a road weary Mad Max type (but, er, in a dress shirt and slacks) who loses his car, gets mighty pissed over it (though of course it’s not really about the car, I suspect), and tries to get it back. He does it violently. Bloodbath and shootouts commence. Yay! Check out a new trailer for “The Rover,” along with two new character posters featuring Pearce and co-star Robert Pattinson sans sparkling glitter below, check it outers. The Rover, David Michod’s highly anticipated follow-up to Animal Kingdom, is set in a world 10 years following the collapse of society. The rule of the law has disintegrated and life is cheap. The film follows hardened loner Eric (Pearce) as he travels the »

Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer Nabs a Poster

16 April 2014 7:42 PM, PDT

Denzel Washington is a bad man in director Antoine Fuqua’s “The Equalizer.” It’s a good thing, then, that there are even badder people in need of having their asses kicked, because that’s exactly what Washington’s character will be doing lots of in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of the ’80s TV series of the same name. In the flick, Denzel plays “a former black ops commando who faked his death for a quiet life in Boston. He comes out of his retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri, and finds himself face to face with Russian gangsters.” “Kick-Ass’s” Chloe Moretz will play Teri, the girl in need of saving. Which is amusing given that, well, Moretz played Hit-Girl in the “Kick-Ass” movies, and I don’t think anyone is going to confuse Hit-Girl with someone who needs saving. Anyways, the film co-stars Marton Csokas, Bill Pullman, »

Leprechaun: Origins Poster Wants You To Steal Its Gold

16 April 2014 4:01 PM, PDT

I still don’t know about director Zach Lipovsky’s upcoming “Leprechaun: Origins.” You’ll never hear me say that the original films were any good, but I will admit these flicks were endlessly enjoyable. The secret ingredient, of course, was Warwick Davis. He was the only reason to see these odd little slices of horror cinema, which makes me nervous about the reboot/remake. Extremely nervous, even. Instead of Davis, we’re getting professional WWE wrestler Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl. In place of cheesy comedy, we’re getting straightforward terror. The verdict is still out on this one, folks, but I’m trying to keep an open mind. Although we don’t have a release date or a proper synopsis to speak of, we do have this snazzy poster. “Leprechaun: Origins” will likely arrive at some point later this year. »

The Cannibals are Getting Hungry in the Green Inferno Teaser

16 April 2014 3:02 PM, PDT

The thing that intrigues me the most about the first teaser trailer for director Eli Roth’s upcoming cannibal opus “The Green Inferno” is the quote they decided to use. Although Killer Film believes that nothing can prepare you for this film, the person who wrote that line has obviously never watched an Italian cannibal flick. Because that’s what “The Green Inferno” is — a re-tread of the subgenre. Roth is essentially the Quentin Tarantino of horror at this point. Of course, you might disagree. Roth’s tale follows a group of activists who head to the Amazon jungle to check up on a dying tribe. Unfortunately for our attractive heroes, they end up as a recipe in the native’s cookbook. Blood and gore ensues. If that sounds like fun to you, then Open Road Films wants you to catch “The Green Inferno” in theaters on September 5, 2014. Take a »

Elizabeth Banks Rampaging in Extended Red Band Trailer for Walk of Shame

16 April 2014 11:06 AM, PDT

Okay, so it’s officially a Red Band trailer, and it’s indeed extended, but honestly, the lack of raunch here is, er, a bit disappointing. Which makes me wonder if the movie really is Rated R or if it’s just a hard PG-13. (Heh. I said “hard.” Because, see, there are penises and sex and acts involving sucking in the trailer. Get it? Get It???) Ahem. Anyways, check out the latest Red Band trailer for director Steven Brill’s “Walk of Shame.” I see a surprise hit, folks. Or maybe I just need my eyes check. Either/or. After losing an audition for her dream job, an aspiring Los Angeles TV news anchor goes out for an uncharacteristic night of partying. She awakes in a stranger’s bed to a phone message from her agent telling her the job is hers, if she can make it across town by 5 pm. »

TV Review: Agents of Shield – 1.17/1.18 – Turn, Turn, Turn/Providence

15 April 2014 8:55 PM, PDT

Spoilers For Last Night’S Episode Below Well, damn, it looks like the writers/producers of “Agents of Shield” weren’t messing around when they said the show was intimately plugged into the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe. It looks like the events of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is reverberating throughout the universe — or at least, throughout everything that is “Agents of Shield.” To say that things are coming to a head is an understatement. Essentially every event, every episode before number 17′s “Turn, Turn, Turn” were leading up to this. I have to admit, following up on the massive reveal of Bill Paxton’s Shield agent John Garrett as not just a Hydra sleeper agent, but the elusive Clairvoyant, I had absolutely no idea where the show was going next. And after Garrett was taken down by Coulson and company at the Hub, I expected the final scene of “Turn, »

Wolverine Gets the Gang Ready for War in Two Final X-Men: Days of Future Past Trailers

15 April 2014 8:20 PM, PDT

Apparently the future depends on Wolverine traveling into the past and then convincing a long-haired Professor X and all the mutie gang (including Beast and Mystique) that a war is coming, and that they need to get their you-know-what together and fight it, or sumthin’. I’m still not sure who they’re fighting, though. It’s the guy from “Game of Thrones,” right? He sure doesn’t look all that fearsome to me. Also, purple robots? Anyways, do yourself a favor and check out a pair of final trailers for Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” One was released for domestic consumption, the other internationally. The structure of the trailers are the same, but you get alternate shots of the same scene, which is pretty cool, I think. The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-men: Days Of Future Past. »

Paramount’s Friday the 13th Reboot Finds a Director

15 April 2014 6:14 PM, PDT

Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes are still moving forward with their second reboot of “Friday the 13th.” While I’d love to see these companies put money into an original property — a maverick idea in this day and age, I know — at least the studio has found a guy who could actually bring something interesting to the franchise. If Paramount is dead set on doing another “Friday the 13th” flick, then at least they tapped “The Signal” co-director David Bruckner to do the job. The filmmaker also helmed the impressive “Amateur Night” segment of the ridiculously underwhelming horror anthology “V/H/S.” Bruckner did a remarkable job bringing a tense and memorable segment to an otherwise forgettable genre experience. While it’s unknown if David will employ the “found footage” concept that we reported about last year, I’m seriously hoping he decides to ditch that angle altogether. The last »

Channing Tatum Really, Really, Really Wants to Play Gambit

15 April 2014 5:43 PM, PDT

Gambit is my favorite X-Men character by far, which is why I was particularly irritated with his portrayal in director Gavin Hood’s misguided superhero flick “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Taylor Kitsch is probably a really nice guy, but he’s definitely not what I had in mind for Gambit. I keep hoping someone will do the character justice. Unfortunately, 20th Century Fox is keen on casting “Magic Mike” star Channing Tatum as Remy Etienne LeBeau in a standalone Gambit movie. Personally, I hate the idea. I Loathe It. I would love to see someone like Luke Evans tackle the role, though that’s probably not going to happen anytime soon. In fact, it seems Tatum is already in talks with producer Lauren Shuler Donner about the project. He recently told MTV News: I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. »

Hemlock Grove Season 2 Gets a Teaser Trailer and a Release Date

15 April 2014 4:42 PM, PDT

I only caught bits and pieces of the Eli Roth-produced Netflix series “Hemlock Grove” when it debuted last year. Judging from my wife’s reaction, it was a pretty decent show with a few moments of excellent gore and incredible werewolf transformation sequences. Not surprisingly, she’s pretty excited that season two is headed to the streaming service this summer. I may have to check it out. As if we didn’t already have enough to do with summer with “Orange is the New Black,” Netflix revealed that it intends to release the next batch of “Hemlock Grove” episodes on July 11. You’ll have 10 new episodes at your disposal, which should give you plenty of reasons to stay out of the direct sunlight. Here’s what folks can expect from the new season: We’ll also learn more about The White Tower and the experiments going on in there, »

Pretty Girls Will Meet Their Maker in All Cheerleaders Die

15 April 2014 4:22 PM, PDT

If anyone other than Lucky McKee (“May,” “The Woman”) was involved with the upcoming horror flick “All Cheerleaders Die,” then I’d probably dismiss it altogether with a snarky remark. Since I love the filmmaker’s work, I’m pretty excited to see what he and co-director Chris Sivertson have put together. Unless the title is completely misleading, chances are a few cheerleaders are going to die. That’s just a hunch. The official synopsis puts a finer point on it: Teenage outsider Maddy is keeping some dark secrets and holding a serious grudge against the captain of the Blackfoot High football team. When Maddy joins the school’s elite and powerful cheerleading squad, she convinces her new friends to help inflict her revenge. After a late-night party goes awry, their plans take an unexpected turn for the worst and all of the girls die. A sinister, supernatural power intervenes »

Director Jeong-beom Lee Returns for the Upcoming Thriller Crying Man

15 April 2014 4:02 PM, PDT

South Korean filmmaker Jeong-beom Lee is badass. I know I say that a lot about South Korean directors, but Lee is particularly awesome. “The Man from Nowhere” is a tidy thriller worthy of your attention. In fact, anyone who subscribes to Netflix streaming should take a moment to check it out. It will prove once again how Hollywood has seriously dropped the ball in the thriller department. Need proof? Watch Robert Luketic’s “Paranoia” and get back to me. Jeong-beom Lee is ready to bring his magic touch back to theaters across South Korea with the upcoming flick “Crying Man,” a film about a professional assassin and the person he’s tasked with killing. I’m sure there’s more going on than that, but this logline is essentially all we have to work with at the moment. “Crying Man,” which stars Dong-gun Jang, Min-hee Kim, and Han-na Kang, opens in South Korea this June. »

The Five (2013) Movie Review

15 April 2014 8:28 AM, PDT

Jung Yeon Sik makes his screenwriting and directorial debut with “The Five”, an adaptation of his own popular webcomic “The 5ive Hearts”, backed by blockbuster producer Kang Woo Suk and his company Cinema Service. A dark revenge thriller with a twist, the film is headlined by actress Kim Sun Ah, marking her return to the big screen after popular roles in romantic television series like “I Do, I Do”, and “Scent of a Woman”. It’s definitely a bit of a change for Kim, here playing Eun A, a woman whose perfect life is ruined by a particularly vicious serial killer (Ohn Joo Wan, “The Taste of Money”), who murders her husband and young daughter, leaving her for dead. Eun A clings to life, and despite being wheelchair-bound leaves the hospital vowing to track down her enemy and make him pay. After the police prove useless, she recruits four societal outcasts, »

Zoe Saldana Totally Freaks Out in Rosemary’s Baby Mini-Series Trailer

15 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT

It’s too bad Zoe Saldana doesn’t have a sword or a space gun, otherwise she could have kicked all them witches’ ass in Agnieszka Holland’s remake of “Rosemary’s Baby” for NBC. The two-hour show is coming to you next month, and you can check out a full trailer for it below. You know, personally, I don’t know how I feel about a helpless Zoe Saldana. But then again, that could just be the fact that she’s been playing so many kick-ass characters, it’s hard to picture her all preggos and freaking out. But then someone hands her a knife… Modern 4 hour mini-series adaptation of the classic novel by Ira Levin focusing on young Rosemary Woodhouse’s suspicions that her neighbors may belong to a Satanic cult who are hell bent on getting one thing: the baby she is carrying. Starring Zoe Saldana, Patrick J. Adams, »

Gemma Arterton and Ryan Reynolds in New The Voices Images

15 April 2014 6:43 AM, PDT

The last time I posted anything about Ryan Reynolds’ “The Voices,” it was back in 2011, and Ben Stiller was attached to star and Mark Romanek to direct. Well, those two guys are gone, and replacing them is Reynolds in the lead and Marjane Satrapi calling the shots behind the camera. No trailer yet, though the movie has already premiered in various festivals, and now you can check out three new images (and a poster) from the film, including a rather interesting shot featuring Gemma Arterton. Considering the premise of this movie, if you gave Reynolds a mask and a sword, he might already be playing Deadpool, the crazed comic book character he’s been trying to play for the last three decades or so. This genre-bending tale centers around Jerry Hickfang, a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden, »
