Stephen King's Response To It Setback Is Perfectly Chilling

4 hours ago

The feature adaptation of Stephen King's It hit a pretty substantial setback recently, leaving fans of the novel to wonder if the horror story will ever see the proper adaptation it deserves. Author Stephen King's reaction to It's death is as on point as we might expect, as the writer not only acknowledges the film's demise, but also calls our minds back to Tim Curry's brilliantly chilling portrayal of Pennywise the Clown. The remake of It may be dead--or undead--but we'll always have Tim Curry. He's still floating down in the sewers of Derry.. Stephen King (@StephenKing) May 25, 2015 They all float down here. Anyone else having a terrifying Pennywise flashback right about now? Thanks Stephen King! Published in 1986, Stephen King's It is set in two time periods (the 1950s and the 1980s) and centers on a group of friends who faced an evil shapeshifting entity as children, and »

It looks like it.s really going to happen, and it looks like it's going to happen next year. Speaking with Digital Spy Statham called the picture, which will be based on J.J. Connelly.s book Viva La Madness, "the most exciting thing" on his plate at the moment.

The original Layer Cake featured a pre-James Bond Daniel Craig as a drug dealer with no name »

Kick-Ass Creator Mark Millar Has An Insane Idea For A Hit-Girl Movie

7 hours ago

Mark Millar is very popular these days. The man behind Kingsman: The Secret Service has turned several of his comic properties into box office gold. Apparently one of the ideas the man behind Kick-Ass is toying with is a solo flick for Kick-Ass heroine Hit-Girl. Speaking to JoBlo comic creator Mark Millar talked about the various irons he has in the fire regarding upcoming films. One of the items under consideration is a standalone Hit-Girl movie. The only problem is that it.s apparently a bit...unorthodox: We have a crazy idea for it, and every now and then I think, is this too crazy? Because it's kind of insane. Would the world accept this? It makes Kick-Ass look like Finding Nemo. Is anybody else terrified? When the man behind Kick-Ass and Kingsman says an idea is "insane" what are we supposed to think. Kick-Ass was insane. Kingsman was out »

Now, thanks to Hayley Atwell, we know exactly what Cap uses to supplement that Super Soldier Serum, Muscle Milk. Also beer. Told you pic.twitter.com/7nqlTmaTkZ.

The only question is, does that much protein shake last Captain America a few days »

The Room's Tommy Wiseau Wants To Make A Movie About Slavery

11 hours ago

Be it alchemy, good fortune, or a deal with the devil; somehow The Room went from an indie stinker to a cult classic thanks to an overnight Internet following. With his new show, The Neighbors on Hulu, Tommy Wiseau would seem vindicated and ready to write his own ticket in Hollywood, and even he knows the score. Which makes one of the next projects he's proposed sound even more ridiculous, as he wants to tackle a very serious issue in American history: the slave trade. Fusion had an in depth conversation with Wiseau, which highlighted the writer/director's hope of winning an Emmy out of his new sitcom. Apparently, though he didn't say it in as many words, an Oscar might be on his mind too, as he not only wishes he could play Abraham Lincoln in a future movie role, but he also wants to make a full film »

Little Kids Dubbing The Star Wars 7 Trailer Is Too Adorable To Handle

20 hours ago

The latest trailer for J.J. Abrams. Star Wars: The Force Awakens may be awesome, and by this point you.ve got every frame committed to memory, but you probably wouldn.t describe it as adorable. At least not until you watch this video of small children dubbing all of the dialogue. Now it.s a whole different ball game. This video comes from Mashable, who apparently have their own stable of child voiceover actors to rerecord all of the dialogue, narration, and sound effects. It.s damn near impossible to watch this and not crack a giant smile as the kids recreate the beep boop beeps of R2-D2, the whoosh of a squadron of X-Wing Fighters soaring past, the pew pew pew of blasters firing, and Chewbacca.s signature Wookiee groan. Everything except the music. You may have noticed that things are definitely less ominous here, as these »

Tron 3 Just Got Axed

21 hours ago

Hopefully you weren.t really, really looking forward to Disney.s Tron 3, because if you were, we.ve got some bad news for you. Reports just dropped that the House of Mouse just decided to pull the plug on their next journey to the Grid. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has decided not to move forward with the third installment of videogame-based sci-fi franchise. Though it was never officially given the go ahead, director Joseph Kosinski and stars Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund were reportedly all on board to return to their respective roles from 2010.s Tron: Legacy. Preparation was even under way, and many assumed it was actually going to film sometime later this year. There are no specific reasons given for Disney.s decision, and though the report mentions that the producers wanted to get Jared Leto involved, but failed to seal the deal, that seems »

21 hours ago

20th Century Fox has been contributing to the superhero craze for more than 10 years with their X-Men and Fantastic Four movies.

Radiohead Was Named After This Groundhog Day Actor

22 hours ago

Radiohead has always had an originality to their music that can arguably never be reproduced. Their name though, was not an original idea. As many Radiohead fans know, Thom Yorke and company named their band after David Byrne.s song "Radio Head" which first appeared in the movie True Stories. But, as it turns out, the song was actually based on a certain actor who plays a wildly annoying insurance salesman in Groundhog Day. None other than Stephen Tobolowsky and his signature character Ned Ryerson.  This little tidbit of information, that ended up influencing the name of one of the .90s most influential rock bands was revealed when Tobolowsky appeared on Chris Hardwick.s Nerdist podcast. Tobolowsky is a character actor best known for his portrayal of Ned Ryerson in Groundhog Day but he also co-wrote the film True Stories with David Byrne and Beth Hanley. And though he claims »

Watch Chris Pratt Get Goofy Warming Up For Stunts In Jurassic World

23 hours ago

We all want to be BFFs with Chris Pratt. That.s just the way it is. His appearances on Parks & Recreation, Moneyball, and heck, even Zero Dark Thirty, were layered with a genuine warmth, which didn.t disappear when he lost all of his weight and turned into a hunk for Guardians Of The Galaxy. Now firmly established as one of the most engaging leading men in Hollywood, this Jurassic World behind-the-scenes clip proves that even monumental success can.t stop him being a giant goofball. The above footage simply shows that working with Chris Pratt would be a pretty terrific way to spend a few months. The cast and crew certainly appear to be having a good time. We also get a good look at the variety of jumps, slides, rolls, and pirouettes that Pratt had to conduct while filming. Ok, there wasn.t that much of that last »

Jamie Foxx's Sleepless Night Remake Has A Badass, All-Star Cast

29 May 2015 3:26 PM, PDT

A few years back, the 2011 French action thriller, Sleepless Night made waves across the pond and everywhere else, thanks to its stripped-down, gritty intensity that seemed to hearken back to a pre-cgi era of film, while adding elements of modernity. Thus, Hollywood swooping in with a remake was inevitable. However, the cast to this Americanized actioner starring Jamie Foxx is actually coming along impressively. With a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter announcing even more additions, let's take a look at the growing lineup. Jamie Foxx as "Vincent Downs" Jamie Foxx stars in writer/director, Frederic Jardin.s intrigue-instilled thriller about a police detective who decides to give into "victimless crime" temptations and steel a big bag of cocaine from some couriers. However, unbeknownst to him, the bag belongs to a powerful drug lord who, in turn, kidnaps the wayward Las Vegas copper.s son, threatening execution should his property »

Fast & Furious 7 Hit Another Huge Box Office Milestone

29 May 2015 3:03 PM, PDT

It.s been just under two months since Furious 7 performed a hand-break turn into cinemas with a mountain of critical acclaim, impressive stunts, and scintillating action set-pieces. Since then the likes of Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Mad Max: Fury Road have been released, but Furious 7 continued to make more and more money. So much money in fact that it.s now become only the fourth film of all time to pass the $1.5 billion mark at the box office. That.s right, Furious 7 is now the fourth highest grossing movie of all time, and it has nestled into position just behind The Avengers, Titanic, and Avatar. In order to become the third highest grossing movie of all time, Furious 7 will have to bring in a further $18 million from somewhere. However, box office experts are predicting that it will be a tall order for it to do that. »

Simon Pegg Shaved At Least 45 Pages Off Of Paramount's Star Trek 3 Script

29 May 2015 2:35 PM, PDT

With a release date already scheduled for next summer, we figured Star Trek 3, or Star Trek Beyond, would begin filming before too long. It.s now on the horizon, but what about the script? Simon Pegg and Doug Jung took that on fairly recently, and though they.ve now finally turned in a draft, a big part of their process included shaving the screenplay down significantly. Talking to Radio Times, Pegg revealed that he and Jung just turned in their first draft of the script to execs, and that it was kind of a monster that they had to tame. The general rule of screenplay writing is that one page is roughly equivalent to one minute of screen time. Pegg and Jung had to wrestle theirs down from 180 minutes to 135. Talking about the time crunch, Pegg said: We started again six months before we were due to start shooting, »

Why Henry Cavill Bailed On His New Movie Right Before Shooting

29 May 2015 2:08 PM, PDT

When you consider how many moving parts are involved in making movies it’s a shock that they get made at all. Even a week before filming starts, when you’d think most details have been finalized, things can change so drastically that a film’s star can walk away. In this case, Henry Cavill is leaving the special forces movie Stratton due to problems with a minor film detail, the script. The Man of Steel actor was on board as both the star and as a producer of the film, but, according to Screen Daily, pulled out at the last minute because there were unspecified issues with the script. The film is based on the series of novels by Duncan Falconer, about the titular character, John Stratton, a member of Special Boat Service, a British Naval Special Forces unit. The film’s »

Entourage Was Originally Rated Nc-17, Probably Because Of The Porn Stars

29 May 2015 1:23 PM, PDT

HBO's Entourage was certainly no stranger to loads of lewdness because, well… HBO. However, it seems that when the time came for series creator/director, Doug Ellin, to bring Vincent Chase and his gang of capricious clingers to the big screen, the show’s ribaldry initially got the film slapped with the death sentence of an Nc-17 rating, due to its showcasing of porn stars. In a piece in The Hollywood Reporter, it was revealed that one sex-strewn scene in particular forced Entourage into a roadblock of a ratings challenge. Said scene involved, among other things, adult actresses Spencer Scott and Anna Morna engaging in (simulated) oral sex on each other in a hotel room. However, the MPAA found this a bit too explicit, despite elaborate efforts from Ellin to mitigate the raciness. According to the X-rated ingénue, Scott: [The director] kept saying »

What Rose Byrne's X-Men: Apocalypse Costume Will Look Like

29 May 2015 1:22 PM, PDT

The last time we saw CIA agent Moira MacTaggert in the X-Men series, her memories of her time with Charles Xavier and his team were erased so that she couldn’t accidentally reveal their whereabouts. After sitting out the time travel shenanigans of X-Men: Days of Future Past, it was revealed earlier this year that Rose Byrne will reprise her role in X-Men: Apocalypse. Although the specifics of her part in the 2016 blockbuster haven’t bee disclosed, we now know that she’ll be returning in style with at least one unique costume. Although she didn’t go into detail, Bryrne told MTV that Moira will have several “cool looks” in X-Men: Apocalypse, and also commented on her overall interest in ‘80s fashion. Said Byrne: I like the ‘80s.’ There’s the high pant. I’ve got a »

29 May 2015 11:38 AM, PDT

We.ve known for a few months now that the much rumored Independence Day 2 was a thing that was actually happening. As more news begins to come out about the film we begin to get a clearer picture of just how much is really going on here.

Stephen King's It Would Be Saved By These 5 Directors

29 May 2015 11:17 AM, PDT

After years of development, and a decent period of excitement after the project had landed True Detective director Cary Fukunaga, the big screen adaptation of It lost its helmer this week. Creative differences were the cause of the split, and considering that New Line was bristling at the multi-film approach, as well as Will Poulter being cast as Pennywise, we can.t blame the man for walking. Unfortunately, that leaves us without a new, legitimately creepy clown movie to replenish our nightmares, and we.re not ok with that at all. While the project is shelved indefinitely, that.s probably studio talk for, "Quick! Run through your contact list and see who we can bring in on short notice!" Which means it.s time to select either a fresh talent, or a seasoned hand, from the ranks of the Horror genre who would be up for the challenge. As luck »
