35 minutes ago

Have you seen the Bennet sisters lately? It might be time to get reacquainted with Jane Austen's most famous family. Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) aren't just eligible singles anymore; they're sword- and knife-wielding martial artists. With a zombie apocalypse that's been raging for more than 70 years, they kind of have to be. Writer-director Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) took on the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's enormously popular book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies after years of development hell—David O. Russell had penned a draft and »

'The Babadook' director talks old-school horror

2 hours ago

Horror directors these days seem to almost automatically genuflect before the altars of such '70s and '80s filmmakers as John Carpenter and Dario Argento. But writer-director Jennifer Kent sought inspiration from much older auteurs while crafting her debut film, the much-acclaimed, Sundance-screened, The Babadook. "I've watched everything, from Mario Bava to Dario Argento—all of those ‘70s guys, including John Carpenter, who I love," she says. "But I feel very drawn also to the early stuff. There were directors in the '20s and '30s—Carl Dreyer, Fritz Lang—who were making films that were art and »

'Mockingjay' sets 2014 record for tickets sold on first day of presale

2 hours ago

On Wednesday, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 opened advance ticket sales and has already broken a 2014 record. According to a Fandango press release, Mockingjay sold more first-day advance tickets than any other 2014 film, passing the previous record-holder, Divergent. In its first day, Mockingjay accounted for 80 percent of Fandango's daily ticket sales. Over on Movietickets.com, the trend continued, with Mockingjay exceeding the first day advance sales of any other 2014 film, including Guardians of the Galaxy. Mockingjay also doubled the number of tickets sold on the first day of presales for Catching Fire last year. Sounds like the odds are in Mockingjay's favor. »

2 hours ago

Pee-wee's Big Adventure isn't over just yet: Paul Reubens went on The Tonight Show Wednesday evening and confirmed another Pee-wee movie is in the works.

Time posted an exclusive clip from Interstellar, featuring Matthew McConaughey's Cooper speaking to a school official on a troublesome textbook that his daughter was reading in class, which goes against the country's now-staunch belief that the Apollo moon landing was a hoax.

It's a muggy July afternoon in New Orleans—the temperature is loitering in the triple digits—and Arnold Schwarzenegger is inside a giant warehouse on the grounds of Nasa's Michoud Assembly Facility. Suited up in a black leather jacket with green-painted latex obscuring most of the right side of his face, he is again playing the indelible robot that solidified his place in Hollywood some 30 years ago. So far today the former governor of California has been stepped on and forced to crawl on the ground, and now, as he gasps for breath fighting his opponent, »

Epic Holocaust doc 'Shoah' to stream on SundanceNow Doc Club

29 October 2014 8:22 AM, PDT

Shoah, the epic 1985 documentary about the Holocaust, will stream online beginning on Nov. 9. Claude Lanzmann's groundbreaking nine-and-a-half hour film, which includes interviews with Jewish concentration-camp survivors and their ex-Nazi oppressors, will be viewable on SundanceNow Doc Club, the member-based video streaming service. When Shoah originally screened in 1985, it shocked audiences. Not because of any depictions of atrocities (no archival camp footage was used), but because of the testimony of those they lived through it. "It is an enormous fact, a 550-minute howl of pain and anger in the face of genocide," Roger Ebert wrote in his rave review. "It »

Honest Trailer for 'Saw' mocks its torture-porn premise, actual-porn budget

29 October 2014 7:11 AM, PDT

It has been 10 years to this day that a little film known as Saw came into the public's consciousness, unleashing a torture porn franchise that no one knew they wanted. On this tenth anniversary of Saw, Screen Junkies released one of their signature Honest Trailers for the film, and when the movie is Saw, there's plenty of subject matter (and plenty of gross depictions of brain matter) to poke fun at. The trailer highlights everything from the the film's porn-like production values to the use of the puppet-as-villain, calling Saw "a great idea for a student short film that somehow »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' hits 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' viewers with new footage

28 October 2014 10:37 PM, PDT

It was supposed to be a trailer, but that leaked last week. Nonetheless, Marvel Studios decided to keep its promise and give viewers of ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. a new look at the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron. Instead of a trailer, it was footage from a party scene early in the movie -- which EW wrote about during our First Look cover in July. Marvel later played this clip at San Diego Comic-Con -- Earth's mightiest heroes engaged in a battle of ego: Who can lift Thor's hammer? Then the footage dovetails into the trailer we've already watched 70 million times since last Wednesday. »

'John Wick' succeeds by avoiding excess (and being really fun)

28 October 2014 3:18 PM, PDT

So it may be strange to say this about a movie that consists of Keanu Reeves wrecking dudes across an entire city for an hour and a half, but John Wick feels surprisingly small for a modern action movie. And it's such a great feeling. First of all, if you haven't seen John Wick, go see it now. There's not a whole lot to be spoiled, really—but it's simply way more fun to watch cold. The movie is totally worth your time. With that out of the way, let's dig in on what makes John Wick feel so exceptionally good. »
