Get Ready For 10 More Years Of Micro-Budget Horror Movies

2 hours ago

If you credited Jason Blum for single-handedly resurrecting horror as a viable moneymaker, you wouldn't be far off. Through his production company Blumhouse Productions, Blum has been churning out low-budget horror films with excellent casts, and the results have been one big fat box office hit after another. Not so shocking, Universal wants a piece of this big, bloody pie, so they've offered Blum a decade-long multiplatform deal. THR reports Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions's new 10-year deal will include partnerships across NBCUniversal's businesses, including Universal Television and Universal Cable Productions. It's a first look production deal that essentially means future Blumhouse movies will first be offered to Universal for distribution. This will include the future of the Sinister franchise. While the first film was distributed by Lionsgate, Universal has secured its sequel for its Focus Features branch. But that's not all. Blum has also been contracted to help »

3 hours ago

With two Academy Awards under his belt as well as unforgettable performances in films like Alfie, The Dark Knight, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Hannah and Her Sisters, Michael Caine is a living legend of cinema. So it's about damn time he teamed up with one of contemporary cinema's greatest odes to star power, Vin Diesel. That's right. Summit Entertainment is proud to announce that Michael Caine has joined the cast The Last Witch Hunter opposite Vin Diesel and Game of Thrones's Rose Leslie. Described as a supernatural action film, The Last Witch Hunter will star Diesel as an immortal witch hunter (naturally) who is seeking to stop a current NYC coven from unleashing a devastating plague on mankind. But he can't do it alone, and so must team up with his natural enemy, a female witch played by Rose Leslie. No mention is made in this press release what »

Game Of Thrones Star Goes Horror In Honeymoon Trailer And Poster

4 hours ago

Honeymoons are meant to be a dreamy, sex-filled celebration of newly minted nuptials. But for the newlyweds at the center of the upcoming horror-thriller Honeymoon, their getaway quickly turns into a nightmare as something evil begins to change them. As you can see from Magnet's trailer above, Harry Treadaway and Rose Leslie star as the plagued pair, while the movie itself seems to offer serious chills and scares. Scottish ingénue Rose Leslie broke through on British television in 2010 with a recurring role on the critically celebrated mini-series Downton Abbey, playing a maid with secretarial ambitions. But to Game of Thrones fans, Leslie will always be Ygritte. With Ygritte's arc regrettably ended, Leslie is looking to movies for her career's next step. And it seems she's made a solid choice with this thriller that.s been gaining buzz--some of its featured in pull quotes above--from the festival circuit. Honeymoon made »

Uncharted Maps Out A New Release Date

12 hours ago

Hollywood really went release date crazy this week. Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 finally found a bay from which to dock. Marvel went ahead and announced a new 2018 movie. And Sony went ahead and opted to debut The Sinister Six in November 2016, while pushing The Amazing Spider-Man 3 out of its intended June 10th, 2016 slot. But Sony wasted no time in reclaiming that real estate with another release. Uncharted, based on the popular adventure video game, will debut on June 10th, 2016. Directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), the plot follows Nate Drake, a wisecracking Indiana Jones analog who hunts buried treasures and solves ancient mysteries. Reportedly, Mark Wahlberg's been in talks to take over the role, which is the best, since Wahlberg's confused face is perfect when he's trying to think onscreen. Uncharted is premiering in a pretty wide-open June that year. Right now, it's sandwiched between two animated films, »

Comparing Quicksilvers: How Will Marvel's Hero Differ From X-Men?

12 hours ago

When it comes to "nerd" cinema, some get riled up about the need to explain plot points and suggestions to the "normals" in the audience. But even if its not readily apparent who is supposed to fall in love with whom, or who killed whom in a previous life, people generally seems to get these movies. That being said, it will be curious to see how audiences will react to the character of Quicksilver appearing in a big summer movie for the second year in a row with 2015's Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Speaking with IGN, Kevin Feige revealed that he is in charge of making sure the new Quicksilver bares little resemblance to the Quicksilver of X-Men: Days Of Future Past. As such, he worked with Joss Whedon on Avengers: Age Of Ultron to create a character that will most certainly not remind the casual fans of the guy »

The Hunger Games Peacekeepers Terrify Comic-Con Crowds

13 hours ago

Sometimes, things can get rowdy on the convention floor at San Diego Comic-Con. Thankfully, this year, the Peacekeepers were present to intimidate rowdy Comic-Con crowds (and help promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay . Part 1). Lionsgate carved out a little corner of the Convention Center floor for a sizeable Hunger Games exhibit, handing out posters to excited fans and allowing crowd members to post with Peacekeepers. Traitors! We are supposed to be rebelling against these Capitol scumbags. The brutes act as the security force for President Snow and the Capitol elite. Remember what they did to the poor District 12 residents? Bastards! And yet, all people wanted to do was take pictures with these gun-toting dudes. As they stood in front of the Samsung Galaxy Hall of Heroes: Speaking of the Samsung Galaxy sponsorship, they will present the first official trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay . Part 1 on Friday at a »

Various dealers and booths have all kinds of cool comics, toys and gadgets for fans to buy, and big companies and studios pack their booths with special display cases and presentations. There's always something to see, and this year one of those things was the brand new Batman costume that will be worn by Ben Affleck in the upcoming blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Guardians Of The Galaxy: See Marvel's Awesome Floor Display At Comic-Con!

15 hours ago

In just a little over a week, Marvel Studios will be taking movie-goers on an adventure though the cosmos. James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy is set to rocket into theaters next weekend, and while the film won't be featured as part of this year's Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con, that doesn't mean that it doesn't have some presence at the annual geek-a-thon. In addition to just about every light post in the Southern California city featuring a banner for the movie, the Marvel booth on the convention show floor has also unveiled a full-size ship that you can see in the photos above and below. While it's not really a full-size ship and really more of a pod (certainly not quite as big as Star-Lord's vessle, the Milano), the vehicle was fully detailed and viewable from many angles. Here is a view from the side: As well »

There Are Already People In Line For Comic-Con's Thursday Panels

17 hours ago

Comic-Con is the most over-the-top, uncontrollable fan event of the year. It.s an absolute positive zoo filled with huge celebrities, screaming fans and obnoxious lines. Seriously. You.ve definitely heard about the Comic-Con lines before, but if you.ve never been there, there.s no way for you to know how truly insane they are in the flesh. So, let me do my best to illustrate what.s already happening. You see that picture at the top of the page? That.s the official sign for the beginning of the line. It.s sleek, professional and unassuming. Right now, it.s not even hiding very much chaos either, but if you take a step back and think about what.s actually going on, it.s kind of shocking. This is how the line behind that sign looked at 3:30 Pm Pst. A few dozen people isn.t that bad »

17 hours ago

Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming to San Diego Comic-Con in a big way this week. As we learned back in June, the blockbuster's entire cast will be present in Hall H during the big Marvel Studios panel on Saturday, and it's highly likely that they will be showing off some footage from the film as well. But that's not all, as the studio has just released two brand new pieces of concept art to coincide with the geektacular event. Debuted on Marvel's official homepage, the new pieces give us closer looks at both Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen), who you can see above, as well as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) from Avengers 2. As you can see, the heroes are in the midst of battling a huge robot army, and things don't look like they are going too well. While these two posters are »

Marvel Is Making A 3rd Movie In 2018

17 hours ago

Mark your calendars! #Marvel Studios adds a 3rd date to 2018 with a new film on May 4! pic.twitter.com/HOota9nbNq. Marvel Entertainment (@Marvel) July 23, 2014 And just like that, Marvel Studios owns all of your release dates. Ok, that.s a slight exaggeration, though the powerhouse superhero studio did just announce (via Twitter) that it will claim a third weekend in 2018, laying its paws on May 4 . its favorite slot at the start of the summer blockbuster season. Add that to the 7 untitled movies Marvel recently mapped out through 2019, and you can tell that the momentum generated by the creative and financial successes of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and Avengers movies isn.t about to slow down any time soon. So what will fill the slot? No idea. When the initial blast of dates was announced, we speculated on what titles might fill those voids, ranging from sequels that we »

Fifty Shades Of Grey Trailer Heats Up With Romance And Drama

17 hours ago

The Fifty Shades of Grey trailer has arrived. Clocking in at more than two minutes, the video focuses on Anastasia Steele's introduction to Christian Grey and then teases some of the steaminess that follows as the two get... acquainted. Christian Grey exercises control in all things. The trailer, which debuted on Today (in part), begins with Ana's interview of Christian at his office, and as Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" plays in the background, it actually takes close to a minute for us to get a good look at Jamie Dornan's character, who's looking very curiously and intensely at Ana... Among the highlights that follow, we have the intense kiss in the elevator... And a ride in Charlie Tango (Christian's helicopter), as well as a thrilling plane ride... Christian explains to Ana that he doesn't do romance, and warns her away from him. He teases her about his interests in »

Ant-Man's Full Costume Revealed In New Concept Art

17 hours ago

While Marvel Studios still has Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers: Age of Ultron still to be released before they are done with Phase Two, it won't be long until they are ready to kick off Phase Three with Ant-Man. While some drama exploded a few months ago when writer/director Edgar Wright and the studio went separate ways over creative differences, the project is now back on track and set to begin filming soon. Before that happens, however, the filmmakers and stars behind the movie will be heading to San Diego Comic-Con for the huge Marvel panel, and to celebrate the event we have the brand new poster that you see above. We've had a good idea of what the Ant-Man costume would look like ever since San Diego Comic-Con 2012 when Edgar Wright revealed some test footage to the audience in Hall H, but now Entertainment Weekly has »

Check Out Some Awesome Swag For Guardians Of The Galaxy's Opening Weekend

18 hours ago

Fan art is one of the most sincere ways to show how much you love a property. We here at Cinema Blend are no strangers to the allure and the artistry that internet-based fandom happens to generate when a film or show has their fancy. Sometimes though, even the top brass in charge of marketing takes notice and elevates a piece of work from fans into an example of just what following your muse can do. In the case of the Poster Posse, they've created a piece of art inspired by the upcoming film Guardians Of The Galaxy that was so cool, it's being offered as a giveaway to fans who line up at their local IMAX theater on opening night. IMAX blasted this image through their Social Media profiles with the advisory that these will be given out on opening night showings for Guardians Of The Galaxy. While their »

Mad Max: Fury Road Shares First Poster, Hi-Res Images

22 hours ago

One of the titles flying under the radar as we head into San Diego Comic-Con is George Miller.s Mad Max: Fury Road, which is kind of insane given the reasons why fans should be amped up for this return to Max Rockatansky.s post-apocalyptic world. True, Mel Gibson is sitting out a Mad Max movie for the first time in franchise history. But he has been replaced by all-around badass Tom Hardy, who turns his back on us in the first official post from next summer.s blockbuster. Max (Tom Hardy) isn.t even on a road in the image, parking Max.s beast of an automobile on the outskirts of a desert wasteland as he overlooks his next, seemingly physical challenges. We can look at some of the upgrades to the car Max will pilot in this new movie, though I have zoomed in and can.t quite »

Here's Why Hollywood's In A Record-Setting Box Office Slump

22 hours ago

You might not have noticed it, if you have attended movie screenings on opening weekend and muscled through packed houses to find great seats in your neighborhood multiplex, but Hollywood is in the midst of a record-setting slump. No film released this season (this year, in fact) has crossed the $300 million mark at the domestic box office. Only one film . Michael Bay.s Transformers: Age of Extinction -- reported an opening weekend north of $100 million (and that.s only if you believe the studio accountants, who may have fudged a decimal point.) And almost every movie that has opened big has struggled to sustain that momentum. These are dire times at the domestic box, and THR thinks they know a few of the reasons. The trade posted sobering statistics about the struggling box office this summer, reporting that the season "is expected to finish down 15 to 20 percent compared with 2013, the »
