Exodus: Gods And Kings Has A Stupidly Long Runtime

4 hours ago

Not too long ago, we thought that Interstellar was going to be one of the longest movie released this year. Not that there's anything wrong with a long movie, but depending on what you're going to see, your interpretation of what constitutes as "long" will vary. That having been said, we've now got a new candidate for the longest film in 2014, as well as the film that will most likely divide the audience in two. That movie is Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods And Kings. The IMDb page for the upcoming Christian Bale/Joel Edgerton epic clocks the movie in at a balmy 3 hours and 20 minutes. The only movie that could seriously challenge Exodus: Gods And Kings for the longest movie you tried to fit into your holiday celebration schedule is The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies, and even that film probably won't come close to what Ridley Scott »

This Short Horror Film Will Creep You Out In 60 Seconds

6 hours ago

Much it is for comedy, brevity is a friend of horror. It's a genre where punchiness is key, and that's extremely difficult in movies that go over the 120 minute mark. With that in mind, I present you a new horror short called Tuck Me In - which is based on a two-sentence long scary story and clocks in at a tight 60 seconds long: This short was directed by Ignacio F. Rodó, and it recently won this year's international Filminute Award, but perhaps the most interesting thing about it is its inspiration. About a year ago, a user took to the AskReddit forum making a simple request: they wanted to hear the best horror stories users could come up with in just two sentences. The top submission - which now has 6,038 upvotes - was written by Juan J Ruiz (username justAnotherMuffledVo), and can be found in its entirety below: I begin »

The Unusual Request Stephen Hawking Had For His Biopic

6 hours ago

Eddie Redmayne did a great deal of preparation for his role in the upcoming Stephen Hawking biopic, The Theory Of Everything. After studying Als patients and working with a choreographer, the Les Miserables star practiced to perform Hawking's many phases of degeneration in body and voice - as per Hawking's suggestions of slurring his voice. This realism worried the film's producers about the inevitability of subtitles . but it was ultimately decided that there was something bigger and more important at stake with the performance. In a piece about Redmayne's buzzed-about turn in the biopic, Yahoo Movies has revealed some fascinating details about how the actor was personally coached by Stephen Hawking in how to speak like he did during his unfortunate decline in health due to the ravages of Als. Discussing the subject of his performance, Redmayne recalled the notes that Hawking gave him in capturing his vocal »

The Reason Why Step Brothers 2 Will Almost Certainly Happen At Some Point

7 hours ago

Adam McKay has confirmed that plans are still afoot for Step Brothers 2 - but he has warned that it might take some time for it to actually materialize. Working with the original film.s stars, Will Ferrell and John C Reilly, McKay had originally intended for the comedy sequel to be released before Anchorman 2. But Paramount then warmed to the idea of the Channel 4 news team.s reunion, and Step Brothers 2 was put on the back burner as a result. But while the project has been long delayed, McKay hasn.t forgotten about it, and he has now told Collider that the trio has an entire outline already penned and ready. Said the director, "We have a whole story, an outline that we.re happy with. We were ready to go, and you know the story of [how] we got the call on Anchorman 2." Despite obviously being happy »

Cabin Fever Is Getting Remade Under These Bizarre Circumstances

8 hours ago

You may not have noticed unless you're a true horror geek, but in the last decade Eli Roth's Cabin Fever has actually developed into its own franchise. The first sequel, titled Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever, was made back in 2009, and a second, called Cabin Fever: Patient Zero was actually released earlier this year. Rather than moving forward, however, it now seems that the series is taking a step backwards, as it has been announced that the Eli Roth original is getting remade - but with an extra special twist. Deadline has the news of the developing Cabin Fever remake, including the bizarre news that the new film will be using the exact same script that was used for the original. That's right: instead of taking the original idea and reworking in some kind of interesting way, the remake will instead once again use the screenplay that was »

Melissa McCarthy Might Not Be A Guarantee For Ghostbusters

9 hours ago

It's not hard to see how simple logic would lead a person to believe that Melissa McCarthy will star in the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. The actress is not only one of the most popular comediennes working in features today - making her an easy fit for the all-female cast - and she has a good amount of experience collaborating with director Paul Feig, having starred in his last two films (Bridesmaids and The Heat). But while it makes all the sense in the world that McCarthy would be joining the cast, nothing has been made official at this point. McCarthy was recently a guest on The Ellen Show, and addressed the subject of the Ghostbusters reboot while sitting down with host Ellen DeGeneres and fellow guest Lena Dunham. During the conversation, DeGeneres made the insinuation that McCarthy was already signed on for the franchise project, but the Tammy star instantly »

Why James Cameron Is Done Caring About Terminator

9 hours ago

James Cameron is well and truly finished even remotely being concerned with the Terminator franchise. For the time being at least. The legendary director is still hopeful that the upcoming addition to the series, Terminator: Genisys, will be fun, but he has declared that the franchise simply isn.t his problem anymore. Cameron made the remarks to Empire Magazine during an event to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Terminator. That.s right - it.s been 30 years since Arnold Schwarzenegger.s monosyllabic monstrosity swanned into Los Angeles to try and kill Linda Hamilton.s Sarah Connor. How time flies. Cameron attended the special soiree that was held at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, and he was of course inundated with questions regarding Alan Taylor.s 2015 effort. Despite his history with the franchise, James Cameron made sure to make it clear that he isn.t bothered in the slightest whether »

This Hilarious Groot Moment Guardians Of The Galaxy Cut

11 hours ago

You would assume that notes from producers and editors regarding Guardians of the Galaxy would read, "More Groot." And yet, while speaking at Variety.s Entertainment & Technology Summit, Guardians director James Gunn explained that there.s a longer version of a beloved scene that involved Groot betraying his best friend, Rocket Raccoon. Well, sort of. Variety reports from its own event, catching up with James Gunn as he continues his victory lap on the heels of his movie earning $732 million worldwide.

12 hours ago

The Fantastic Four reboot is a pretty crucial project for the folks over at 20th Century Fox. Right now the X-Men franchise is on a very good path, but if the studio really wants to expand their in-house comic book movie world, then that means Fantastic Four needs to work with both critics and audiences. As a result, there is going to be a great deal of pressure on our first official look that the new film - and that's exactly why we haven't gotten one yet.

Touting the fact that he was on the set of the movie almost every day of shooting and has already seen all of »

Meet Moana, The Title Character For A Brand New Disney Animated Movie

14 hours ago

Walt Disney Studios is riding the wave of the success of Frozen with a new animated adventure about another fearless teen heroine. Her name--and the name of her movie--is Moana. And she's got an incredible team behind her big screen birth. Walt Disney Animation has unveiled that Moana is being written and directed by Ron Clements and John Musker. If those names are familiar, it's probably because you've seen their names on your TV during the countless times you've watched The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and (possibly to a lesser degree) The Princess and the Frog. Unlike these gorgeous examples of Disney's classic hand-drawn animation technique, Moana will be a CG-animated feature, more in line with Disney's recent cartoon hits, Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph and Frozen. You can get an idea of how Moana might look from the concept art up top. While a great number of Disney's animated features over the »
