New 12 Monkeys TV Series Trailer Tells Us We’re All Already Dead

14 minutes ago

SyFy has released a new trailer for their upcoming TV series adaptation of 12 Monkeys.  The story follows a time traveler (Aaron Stanford of X2 fame) from a post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day with a mission to destroy the source of a deadly plague that will one day annihilate the human race.  While the show will lack the distinct style of Terry Gilliam's 1995 film, it still looks like an interesting time-travel film, and certainly more in the serious mold of SyFy's better series.  This isn't a story that can only be told one way, and I'm curious to see what the TV series will do with it. Hit the jump to check out the 12 Monkeys TV series trailer.  The show premieres at 9pm on January 16, 2015, and also stars Amanda Schull, Kirk AcevedoBarbara Sukowa, Noah Bean, Tom Noonan, Emily Hampshire, and Zeljko Ivanek. Via Variety. Here’s the official synopsis for 12 Monkeys: 12 Monkeys, »

Fun Size Horror Film #5: Max Isaacson’s “Bad Eggs”

You ever think you’d see a horror film featuring hands with faces on them?  Well, the time has come.  Our latest Fun Size Horror short film is here and it’s about a hand with a face named Bertrand who ate some bad eggs and now has an unusual stomachache. This one was written and directed by Max Isaacson.  He only just finished directing his first short film, Whispers, but he has credits on a number of other shorts, a bunch of which I’ve actually seen and loved.  He did special effects on the SXSW 2013 Midnighter, The Apocalypse, and was also the production designer on Tick Tock Time Emporium. Hit the jump to check out Isaacson’s Fun Size Horror contribution, “Bad Eggs,” and don’t forget, you can find more Fun Size Horror films on Dread Central, Bloody Disgusting, Shock Till You Drop and Badass Digest.

First Ex MacHina Trailer Starring Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, and Alicia Vikander

1 hour ago

"To erase the line between man and machine is to obscure the line between men and gods."  Thus begins the first Ex Machina trailer, projecting an ominous tone for the psychological thriller.  The script by Alex Garland centers on a billionaire programmer (Oscar Isaac) who invites a young employee (Domhnall Gleeson) to his remote estate to be the human component in a Turing test to evaluate his new artificial intelligence robot, Ava (Alicia Vikander).  This is Garland's directorial debut, and I am curious to see what he can do after contributing to great ambivalent science fiction like 28 Days Later, Sunshine, and Never Let Me Go.  Plus, Isaac is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors.  I'll watch anything he's in, especially if he plays a shady genius with a great beard. The A24 release opens April 10, 2015.  Watch the Ex Machina trailer after the jump. Official synopsis: Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, »

Guillermo del Toro Talks Youtube Space House Of Horrors: A Legendary Halloween, Watch the First 10 Shorts and See Images of the Sets

11 hours ago

For horrific reasons involving stitches I couldn't make the Guillermo del Toro press day to promote the YouTube Space House of Horrors that he's been involved with for the past few months.  But judging from the photos I've been seeing of the amazing sets they've built and talking to del Toro on the phone, it seems like a great experiment. ouTube creators had the opportunity to create original videos on terrifying cinematic sets inspired by del Toro at YouTube Spaces in Los Angeles, London, Tokyo and New York, as part of a special global programming event.  You can watch the first 10 Videos below and then check the YouTube Spaces Channel and the Legendary YouTube Channel for more in the coming days. I chatted on the phone with del Toro for a few minutes and his enthusiasm was as infectious as ever.  Not only is he helping to select the winner, »

The Collision: Episode 109 – Marvel Phase Three and Facing off against Warner Bros./DC Comics

11 hours ago

This week on The Collision, we talk about the massive announcement regarding Marvel Phase Three.  We look at what the plan implies, what was left behind (poor Ant-Man), how enthusiasm for the future makes us forget the present (Avengers: Age of Ultron looked like an afterthought after the Phase Three announcement and that movie hasn't even come out yet), the inevitable clash with Warner Bros./DC, marketing to fans, and more.  As always, we finish up with our recommendations.

Arrow Recap: “The Magician”

13 hours ago

Felicity's nowhere to be seen on tonight's episode of Arrow, but that's because she's taking a much-needed vacation excursion to Central City to visit The Flash.  Can Team Arrow survive without her?  Yeah, of course they can, but to help out in her absence, Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) lends her bow in the effort to track down this season's mysterious murderer.  That case is an enjoyable slow burn in an otherwise fast-paced and action-filled season thus far, but now a new enemy has appeared on the horizon and Team Arrow may have to forge some undesirable alliances to get out of this mess alive. Hit the jump for our Arrow recap. Nyssa's arm strength is impressive as she's been holding that arrow knocked and pointed in Oliver's direction since this time last week.  Oliver breaks the news to her that Sara died at the hands of an archer, then »

Michael Bay In Talks To Direct Benghazi Movie 13 Hours

14 hours ago

Well this... this is something.  If Pain & Gain was one for him, and Transformers: Age of Extinction was one for them, then Michael Bay's potential new Benghazi movie 13 Hours is definitely payback for putting in the hours with those giant robots.  Given that Benghazi is an extremely touchy political issue it will be interesting to see where Bay, whose instincts for crowd pleasing are often spot on, falls along the spectrum of public opinion. I actually think Bay is a smart guy who knows what he's doing (and I think he does Transformers movies, at least in part, in order to gain the power to do stuff he's more passionate about) so I'm actually looking forward to seeing what he's thinking with this one.  13 Hours will be based on the Mitchell Zuckoff book of the same name and will be adapted for the screen by The Strain writer Chuck Hogan. »

Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar! Set for Release on February 5, 2016

16 hours ago

Universal Pictures has set a Hail, Caesar! release date for the next film from writers/directors Joel and Ethan Coen.  The comedy has been slated for release on February 5, 2016, which marks the first 1st Quarter release date for a Coen Brothers film since 2004’s The Ladykillers.  The film takes place in 1950s Hollywood, during the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age, and “follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix.”  The incredible ensemble cast is led by Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, and Jonah Hill.  More on this curious choice of release date for Hail, Caesar! after the jump. It’s been a decade since a Coen Brothers film wasn’t released in the fall, in the heat of awards season, so it’s a bit odd to see Hail, »

Daniel H. Wilson Offers Update on Robopocalypse

17 hours ago

Nearly two years ago, Steven Spielberg was putting together the pieces for his next film, Robopocalypse.  The adaptation of the Daniel H. Wilson sci-fi novel of the same name was to return the director to a large-scale tentpole-type picture, telling the story of a future where an artificial intelligence comes online and threatens a, well, robot apocalypse.  Chris Hemsworth was set as the lead, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw were poised to co-star, Drew Goddard was writing the screenplay, and filming was set to begin in Spring 2013 until suddenly it all came to a halt.  Spielberg decided to postpone the film indefinitely after coming up with “a better way to tell the story” that would necessitate heavy reworking of the screenplay. The filmmaker went on to flirt with American Sniper before committing to shooting two new films back-to-back (he’s filming the first one right now), so whatever happened to Robopocalypse? »

My Favorite Halloween Movie: The Nightmare Before Christmas

17 hours ago

[Since Halloween is this week, Adam, Perri, and I decided to write a bit about the films we watch annually to celebrate the holiday.  Click here for Adam's pick.] My memory is a bit hazy, but I'm pretty sure The Nightmare Before Christmas was the first stop-motion animated film I ever saw.  I was used to 2D animation and had never seen the work of Ray Harryhausen and his ilk.  Then my parents took me to see the film, and Jack Skellington's sentiments regarding Christmas Town could have easily applied to my feelings about Henry Selick's masterpiece.  The movie that may not be scary, but it embodies the best aspects of a child's holiday traditions. For those who haven't seen the film (you monsters), it's about Jack Skellington (speaking voice by Chris Sarandon and singing voice by composer Danny Elfman), the "Pumpkin King" of Halloween Town who has grown tired with the annual celebration.  After a night of despondently walking through the woods, he comes across a collection of trees.  Each one has a door and the door corresponds to a specific holiday. »

Banksy Does New York Trailer: Famous Street Artist Comes to NYC in New Documentary Premiering on HBO Go

18 hours ago

My favorite film of 2010 was Banksy's Exit Through the Gift Shop.  A film that begins as an exploration of street art culture eventually expanded to fascinating questions of who owns art, who is qualified to make it, and how does it function outside the confines of traditional space?  Banksy is now the subject of a new documentary, Chris Moukarbel's Banksy Does New York.  The film sees the street artist taking to NYC for a series of projects.  It's possible the movie could lapse into glorification (look at how everybody loves Banksy!), but it also looks like there's a hook of having the documentary (or at least parts of it) comprised of social media reactions, which is a new, interesting perspective on how art is distributed, observed, and discussed. Hit the jump to check out the Banksy Does New York trailer.  The documentary will air on HBO Go on »

Jennifer Lawrence Takes Extreme Measures in New Serena Trailer

19 hours ago

Magnolia Pictures has released the official Us trailer for director Suzanne Bier’s drama Serena.  The film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, which seems like a slam dunk except for the fact that the film was shot before Silver Linings Playbook and has been sitting on the shelf ever since.  Apparently it’s just not that great as distributors refused to acquire the film for quite some time, but this trailer certainly makes the movie look at least interesting in a go-for-broke kind of way.  Lawrence and Cooper play 1920s newlyweds who begin to build a timber empire, but their passion becomes hindered as a hidden past is discovered and Lawrence’s character decides to take fate into her own hands. Watch the new Serena trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Toby Jones and Rhys Ifans, and will be released on iTunes and VOD on February 26, 2015 and »

Writer-Director Dan Gilroy Talks Nightcrawler, Deleted Scenes, Jake Gyllenhaal’s Weight Loss, Tim Burton’s Superman Lives, and More

20 hours ago

One of my favorite movies of 2014 is opening this weekend: writer-director Dan Gilroy's debut feature, Nightcrawler.  In the film, Jake Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, a guy desperate to score a job.  While on the hunt, Lou stumbles across a “nightcrawler,” someone who captures footage of fires, murders and all sorts of chaos to sell to new stations and Lou comes to the conclusion that the gig is perfect for him.  While I've seen Gyllenhaal deliver some great performances End of Watch, Prisoners, Zodiac and Brokeback Mountain, his work in Nightcrawler takes him to the next level.  It's easily one of my favorite performances of the year and absolutely worth a full price ticket to see this weekend when the film opens.  For more on the film, read Matt's glowing review or watch the red band trailer. During my exclusive video interview with Dan Gilroy he talked about casting Gyllenhaal, »

Jordan Peele to Write and Direct Horror Film Get Out

21 hours ago

You’re probably familiar with Jordan Peele as one half of the very funny comedic duo of Key & Peele, but in addition to comedy, it appears that Peele has aspirations in the horror genre as well.  We’ve known for a little while that Peele has been developing a horror film of his own, but in a recent interview with Playboy, Peele revealed a bit more about the proposed feature, titled Get Out.  Peele intends to write and direct the film, and he has a really fascinating angle for the story: racial fears.  More after the jump. Speaking with Playboy (via Badass Digest), Peele revealed a little bit about his plans for Get Out: "I’ve been spending the first half of my career focusing on comedy but my goal, in all honesty, is to write and direct horror movies. I have one that I’m working on with Darko »

ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

First Look at Terminator: Genysis Provides Images of the Characters Plus Plot Details; Sarah Connor “Orphaned by a Terminator”

21 hours ago

The Terminator franchise has now been going for thirty years, and it's going to need a reboot of sorts if it plans to stay alive.  Personally, I'd be fine letting lay fallow or never coming back to it again since every sequel diminishes the ending of T2 ("We might have saved the world!"; "Nope.  No you didn't.  In no way what so ever.")  But as the cover of EW proclaims, Terminator: Genisys (spelling is for nerds) is trying to "save a billion-dollar franchise."  And how do you go about that?  With a character description that will have you scratching your head. Hit the jump to learn more about the movie and to check out the Terminator: Genisys images from EW, which provide a first look at the characters.  The film opens July 1, 2015 and stars Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith, J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi and Byung Hun Lee. »

Final The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Trailer Promises Massive Scope, Dire Consequences

22 hours ago

Lionsgate has released the final The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 trailer for the upcoming event film.  Directed by Catching Fire helmer Francis Lawrence, the film finds Panem's Capitol fighting an all-out revolution, as Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss prepares for battle in District 13 following the destruction of her home, District 12.  The scope of this thing looks absolutely massive, and while it should be fun to see what Francis Lawrence does with a larger canvas, I do hope that the film maintains the strong character-centric focus that made Catching Fire so satisfying.  Catastrophe and “trailer shots” are neat, but we see countless quantities of them year-round; what the Hunger Games franchise excels at is showcasing Jennifer Lawrence’s powerful lead performance and the camaraderie that surrounds her.  Fingers crossed that continues with Mockingjay. Watch the final The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Josh Hutcherson, »

Daniel Radcliffe Talks Horns, Keeping the Leather Jacket, Making the Material Believable, Working with Alexandre Aja, His Hopes to Direct and More

22 hours ago

He’s walked us through a world of witchcraft and wizardry, made moviegoers believe in the Woman in Black of the Eel Marsh House and now Daniel Radcliffe has absolutely no trouble selling himself as a guy with horns growing out of his head in Alexandre Aja’s adaptation of the Joe Hill novel, Horns.  Radcliffe leads as Ig Perrish.  Ig is all ready to live happily ever after with his longtime girlfriend Merrin Williams (Juno Temple), but then she turns up dead and he’s named the prime suspect.  Complicating matters further, Ig also wakes up with horns comings out of his head. Horns is already available on VOD, but in honor of the film’s very appropriate October 31st theatrical release, I got the chance to sit down with Radcliffe to discuss the challenges of grounding such an out-of-this-world situation, what it was like working with Aja, his »
