Riddick Director David Twohy to Helm Time Travel Thriller Replay

56 minutes ago

Filmmaker David Twohy is poised to tackle time travel in his next film.  Deadline reports that the director behind the Riddick trilogy will helm the thriller Replay for Relativity.  The story follows a test subject in an experiment who is sent four days into the future, only to discover that his son has been killed and he’s being accused of committing the crime.  When the day is over, he wakes up to find it’s now the previous day, thus beginning a murder mystery in reverse as he must solve the murder before he reaches the day of the initial experiment, which is when the killing occurred.  The project was penned by Joe Gazzam, who is writing the upcoming Cliffhanger remake.  This is not to be confused with the other time travel movie called Replay, which is based on Ken Grimwood’s novel and previously had Robert Zemeckis in line to direct. »

1 hour ago

Now available online and for free is We The Economy: 20 Films You Can’t Afford to Miss.  Produced by Paul G. Allen’s Vulcan Productions and Morgan Spurlock’s Cinelan, each of the short films is helmed by a filmmaker using their own creative vision to help explain the U.S. economy.  The shorts run 5-8 minutes each and they try to explain the role of government in the economy, what causes inequality, what is money and globalization, and a lot more.  It's a great series that tries to tackle a very serious subject in an entertaining way.  Watch them here. With director Adam McKay helming The Unbelievably Sweet Alpacas (which tackles income inequality in a My Little Pony-inspired universe), I recently spoke to him about how he got involved in the project, his outspoken political views and how he uses social media to address them, how We the Economy gives unbiased economic information, »

Christopher Nolan Doesn’t Rule Out Another Superhero Movie; Warner Bros. Pressed Him to Produce Justice League and a Batman Reboot

1 hour ago

If Marvel Studios and Iron Man is responsible for influencing one half of the current superhero movie climate, then Christopher Nolan and Batman Begins can take credit for the other half.  How many times have you heard “gritty reboot” and Batman Begins name-checked when describing a potential new project or an updated take on an existing property?  Nolan brought a grounded and serious tone to the superhero genre with his Dark Knight trilogy, specifically The Dark Knight, and many imitators have surfaced in his wake.  Nolan closed out his Batman adaptation with The Dark Knight Rises, but many fans of the franchise would no doubt love to see Nolan put his spin on another superhero. So what does Nolan think about returning to the superhero genre?  Well he’s not particularly crazy about it, but he won’t entirely rule it out either.  Hit the jump for more, including how »

Emma Stone and Edward Norton Talk Birdman, Reaction to the Finished Film, Working with Director of Photography Emmanuel Lubezki, and More

1 hour ago

Now playing in theaters is one of the best films of 2014: Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman.  Made to look like one long shot, Birdman stars Michael Keaton as an actor who once played an iconic superhero and now faces troubles with his ego and family as he prepares to mount a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim past glory.  While some movies have incredible performances or a great script, Birdman is one of those rare films where everything across the board is memorable.  It’s absolutely one of my favorite films of the year and it should be seen as soon as possible.  Trust me, this is a special movie that you will want to see.  The film also stars Edward NortonNaomi WattsEmma StoneZach GalifianakisAndrea Riseborough, and Amy Ryan. At the New York City press day I landed a video interview Emma Stone and Edward Norton. »

Alex Garland to Write and Direct Enviro-Horror Thriller Annihilation

2 hours ago

Just yesterday, the trailer debuted for 28 Days Later, Dredd, and Sunshine writer Alex Garland’s directorial debut, the fantastic-looking sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, and now Garland is lining up another incredibly promising directorial project.  Variety reports that he has been tapped by Paramount to write and direct an adaptation of the first book in Jeff VanderMeer’s excellent Southern Reach trilogy, Annihilation. The books are at once terrifying and incredibly compelling, with each novel written from a different perspective and with a unique authorial voice. The first book, Annihilation, follows the expedition of four women who are sent into the mysterious “Area X”, a portion of land in the United States that has been secretly quarantined due to abnormal activity.  They are the twelfth expedition sent into Area X.  The second ended in mass suicide, the third in a hail of gunfire as the members turned on one another, and »

Author Joe Hill Gives Update on the Locke & Key Movie; Says Fox Passed on the TV Pilot Because It Was “Too Scary”

2 hours ago

It’s no secret that I love the Locke & Key graphic novels that are written by Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez.  It is a story of dark fantasy and wonder about Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them, and that only scratches the surface.  When I saw the pilot that was made for the 2011 TV season (starring Miranda Otto, Mark Pellegrino, Jesse McCartney and Sarah Bolger), I loved it so much that I was both shocked and greatly disappointed to learn that it wasn’t picked up and I would never get to see how it would continue. Then came word that Alex Kurtzman, who was an executive producer on pilot, was now looking to make a trilogy of films to tell the Locke & Key story.  So, when I got on the phone with author Joe Hill »

Eric Bana to Fake Front Line War Reporting in Ricky Gervais’ Special Correspondents

2 hours ago

With films like Deliver Us from Evil, Lone Survivor and Hanna on his resume, it’s easy to forget that Eric Bana kicked off his career with the sketch comedy series, Full Frontal.  However, Bana is about to step back into the comedy realm for a brand new movie called Special Correspondents.  It’s being described as a satirical comedy drama and will feature Bana as an arrogant New York radio journalist who pretends he’s reporting from the front lines of war. Ricky Gervais penned the script and is set to direct the film as well.  Production is scheduled to begin in the Spring of 2015 in New York and Vancouver.  Hit the jump for more on Special Correspondents. This is a pretty clever idea.  Sure it’d take some serious legwork and research to pull one over on the public, but really, what’s to stop someone from faking »

Rob Zombie Putting Together “Hardcore R-rated” Halloween Film 31; Crowdfunding Campaign Underway

3 hours ago

You know what would happen if Rob Zombie ran The Hunger Games?  It’d probably be a little like the idea behind this new project he’s putting together called 31.  In the movie, five carnival workers are abducted the night before Halloween and thrown into a secret facility called Murder World.  That’s where they play the game 31 during which they’ve got to survive 12 hours in the compound packed with maniacs dressed as clowns trying to kill them. Protagonist Pictures is gearing up to bring the project to the international marketplace at Afm next month.  Production is expected to begin in February.  Hit the jump for more on 31. According to Variety, the production companies behind the film include Spectacle Entertainment Group, Bow + Arrow Entertainment and Protagonist Pictures.  Bow + Arrow and Protagonist are co-financing the project as well.  Zombie and Andy Gould will produce for Spectacle while Eddie Vaisman will »

Stephen Amell Thinks Grant Gustin Should Be Doing The Flash Movie

4 hours ago

Admittedly, I was a little annoyed when it was first announced that Evan Peters was set to portray Quicksilver in the X-Men films and Aaron Taylor-Johnson snagged the part for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Clearly one actor can’t play the part for both Fox and Marvel Studios, but the perfectionist in me was a little annoyed that there’d be two guys playing the character at the same time.  Deep down, I know it’s ridiculous and there’s no reason why we can’t have two successful renditions of Pietro Maximoff, but it’s just not as orderly as I would have liked. Now the same thing is happening with Barry Allen.  The Flash TV show starring Grant Gustin is in the midst of a strong first season run on The CW, but Warner Bros. and DC still decided to give the character a movie, too – with a different actor. »

Nightcrawler Review

4 hours ago

[This is a re-post of my review from the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.  Nightcrawler opens today.] Local TV news is sociopathic. If I came up to you and began our conversation talking about the horrible deaths of total strangers that had no larger implication than seizing on your deep-seated fears about city living, you would think I’m not only insane, but predatory. And you would be right. Dan Gilroy’s chilling, pulse-pounding Nightcrawler manifests the essence of local news and puts it inside a protagonist where a soul should be. Anchored by Jake Gyllenhaal giving the best performance of the year thus far, Gilroy’s film is a scathing and decadently amoral portrait of ice-cold calculation and ruthless ambition speeding through the dark streets of Los Angeles. Lou Bloom (Gyllenhaal) is a thief who believes he has the work ethic to achieve far more than petty crimes. One night while driving past a car crash, he observes a “nightcrawler”,  cameraman Joe Loder (Bill Paxton) capturing »

Horns Review

5 hours ago

Everyone has got some ugliness deep down in our souls.  It may be a fleeting thought or repressed anger, but good people try to keep it hidden, which isn't a bad thing.  It makes us human, and without that humanity, our brutal honesty shines through.  Alexandre Aja's Horns tries to explore this inner darkness by weaving together religion, salvation, damnation, and dark secrets, and the movie's approach, albeit heavy-handed at times, is admirable.  There's not much room for subtlety, but the darkly comedic aspects help balance out the somber tone, and although the plot stumbles across clunky storytelling, it's a refreshing horror film that conjures up some sympathy for a devil. Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) is at the center of media witch hunt when his whole town believes he murdered his beloved girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple).  He blacked out the night she was murdered, but he's pretty sure he didn't kill her, »

Comic Creator James O’Barr Shares New Details on The Crow; It’s a New Adaptation of the Comic, Not a Remake of the Movie

5 hours ago

Should there be a remake of Alex ProyasThe Crow?  Does anyone even want one?  The film’s been in the works for years now, so we’ve been mulling over those question for quite some time, but now the man who created it all, James O’Barr, the artist behind the comic, is assuring fans this new version will do the source material justice and respect the legacy of Brandon Lee and the 1994 film as well. In fact, the rendition starring Luke Evans isn’t even a remake of Proyas’ movie; it’s a new adaptation of the comic book.  And Evans won’t be playing Eric Draven in the new film either, but rather, Eric, just like in O’Barr’s original work.  Hit the jump for more on the new The Crow. It’s still unconfirmed whether or not F. Javier Gutierrez is still on board to direct, »

Fun Size Horror Film #7: Josh C. Waller’s “The Collection”

5 hours ago

This is it, our very last Fun Size Horror short film.  We’ve caught a late-night sacred ceremony, heard voices, seen what happens when you pop in the Ninja Masters IV: The Possession VHS, watched two zombie apocalypse survivors go head-to-head, seen a hand with a face on it puke up bad eggs and experienced the wrath of Mr. Hendrix, but now it’s time to find out what horrors Lance Reddick is capable of in “The Collection,” a short about a young woman who’s thrilled to do a modeling session with a famous photographer (Reddick). This one comes from Josh C. Waller who made his feature directorial debut with Raze starring Zoe Bell.  He’s also behind the crime drama McCanick with David Morse, Cory Monteith and Mike Vogel and is also busy developing three new projects - a genre-bending action film, another about what it takes to »

Terminator: Genisys Storyboards Show Film Isn’t Completely Comprised of Squinting and Shouting

5 hours ago

Terminator: Genisys doesn't come out for eight months, and in all likelihood, we'll have forgotten the movie's atrocious first impression from the awful EW covers and photo shoot.  The film, which already has to overcome a fair amount of skepticism, has already opened itself up to ridicule with its promotional photos and vaguely defined plot (I don't have a problem with calling an older Terminator "Pops", but I know people who aren't crazy about the moniker).  However, EW also has some storyboards to remind us that this is an action movie, and everyone likes action, right?  These storyboards give us a vague idea of what we can expect from the Future War scenes as the rebels fight the endoskeletons.  When the film begins its next promotional push and shows actual footage and stills, we'll probably see a glimpse of these scenes, and hopefully they'll get us excited about the movie. »

Jake Gyllenhaal Talks Nightcrawler, the Reaction to His Character, How Working as a Producer Changed His Acting Approach, Everest, Southpaw, and More

13 hours ago

In theaters this weekend is Nightcrawler, the stunning feature debut from writer/director Dan Gilroy.  The film centers on Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) an ambitious and morally malformed young man looking to find his fortune.  When Bloom stumbles onto the world of “nightcrawlers”, film crews who capture footage of violent tragedies and sell them to the highest bidder, he finally finds his calling.  While Gyllenhaal has always stood tall among his peers as a brave and capable actor, his work in Nightcrawler sets a new standard. Bloom is chilling, charming, and the perfect representation of what happens when the American Dream turns nightmarish. I recently sat down with Gyllenhaal for an exclusive video interview.  He talked about how people have reacted the complicated character of Lou Bloom, how working as producer changed his approach as an actor, if he wants to move into directing, and what's coming up in 2015 like Everest, »

Scandal Recap: “An Innocent Man”

16 hours ago

Scandal's "An Innocent Man" focused on trust, and how easily the truth can be manipulated.  Olivia isn't sure who to trust, but at least she knows better than to trust her father (something Fitz still can't seem to figure out).  Everything else is put on hold, though, while the Fitz-Olivia-Jake love triangle gets sorted out.  As Abby puts it, "I'm not asking the Commander In Chief, I'm asking the married man who used to sleep with my friend what you did with the man she is currently sleeping with."  Hit the jump to find out. In lieu of a regular recap: [An opening montage shows Olivia fantasizing about a very sexy Jake, and a very predatory-looking Fitz.   Have you seen Twin Peaks?  Fitz is basically Bob in this montage.  Then the only thing scarier than Bob shows up -- Rowan.  Liv wakes up screaming]. Abby: Bestie, what's wrong? Olivia: Have you see Twin Peaks? [Somewhere in a DC hotel room] Cyrus: I feel alive! Michael: That's funny, because you've been alive like, three times as long as I have. Cyrus: I'm going to buy you a phone and a house and an off-shore bank account and a pool and »
