5 Horror Films To Watch This Halloween

12 hours ago

For me, Halloween has always been about watching scary movies. While all the other kids dressed up as pirates and princesses and went trick-or-treating, all little Laura wanted to do was eat some popcorn and watch a Child's Play Marathon, or Hocus Pocus on replay. And my guess is that if you're a fan of this site, chances are you also like staying in and watching movies on Halloween. That's why I decided to put together a short list of horror films you should watch this spooky holiday. Feel free to put your suggestions below.

1. Hocus Pocus

Disney's Hocus Pocus is wickedly funny and charming. Three witches, played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, set out regain their youth by absorbing the life force of kids. Hocus Pocus is a cult classic. It has a great sense of humor, and it's actually a movie you can watch »

Star Wars: From Genocide to Anachronistic Laser-Sword Hilts

13 hours ago

It’s Halloween!


So let’s start with StarWars.com 10’s official Top Monsters:

Rancor triumphant!

I’m not going to lie to you, I spent a significant amount of time this week attempting to get the new ports of classic Star Wars sims X-Wing and Tie Fighter to work on my Mac. All the Wineskin in the world isn’t letting me bypass the simple fact I don’t have a joystick. It looks like this is a common problem. Like I do, I’ve been ghosting around forums and I think I’ve come to the point where I can give it another go, but - you know - I can’t devote All my time to my various Star Wars obsessions.

X-Wing and Tie Fighter, though, those were my jams back in the 90s. There had always been Star Wars games around when I was a kid, »

Film Review: 'Nightcrawler'

16 hours ago

Lou Bloom is a very ambitious man.

Normally when someone says the phrase, "I'll never ask you to do something that I wouldn't do myself," it's a show of support. They're letting you know that they have your back, and that they'll never make an unreasonable request that they, themselves, would be unwilling to do. But when Bloom says it, it's cause for concern.


Lou Bloom is a very dangerous man. 

As played by Jake Gyllenhaal, who completely disappears in the role, there is literally nothing Bloom wouldn't do to get ahead in life. Nothing. As the film begins, we meet the character as he does what he does: Creating opportunities. He's a man with seemingly little in the way of skills, training, or education, so he invents ways of making himself a commodity. If that means stealing something that he can sell to someone that needs it, so be it. »

'The Crow' Creator Discusses His Change of Heart About The Remake

17 hours ago

It's been 25 years since James O'Barr's The Crow graphic novel debuted. The book would go on to sell over a million copies. It would also spawn a cult hit film adaptation which is now celebrating its 20th anniversary. The original film starred Brandon Lee in what would be his final performance, as he died during an unfortunate accident while filming the movie. After that film, Hollywood churned out a few more sequels- but that's where O'Barr checked out. He loathed the sequels and wanted no association with them. For the last couple of years, there's been movement on a remake- which O'Barr loathed, too.

But then something happened.

The writer, who had taken a hard and fast stance against revisiting the hallowed ground of the first film, suddenly came around. Why? In a talk with Korsgaard's Commentary, O'Barr revealed what it was that director F. Javier Gutiérrez did to win him over. »

Film Review: 'Horns'

17 hours ago

Ig (Daniel Radcliffe) is having a rough couple of days. The love of his life, Merrin (Juno Temple) has been brutally murdered, and since she dumped him a few hours before she met her untimely fate all signs point to him. But that’s not all that’s happening. In a deviously surreal flourish, Ig has suddenly begun to sprout horns on either side of his head—horns that can only he and his best friend Lee (Max Minghella) can see. On top of that, the horns seem to give him supernatural abilities both wanted and not, including having everyone he comes into contact with unknowingly divulging their deepest, darkest wishes to him.

Director Alexander Aja’s delightfully unconventional film Horns takes its twists and turns from there, always managing to stay one step ahead of its tonal shifts and genre mix-n-match to make for a darkly comedic murder mystery that blazes its own path. »

'Wonder Woman' Blocks Gadot From Doing 'Ben-Hur'

17 hours ago

Gal Gadot, who's stock is now much higher in Hollywood thanks to her landing the coveted role of Wonder Woman in WB/DC's films, is going to have to scratch at least one project off her slate. The actress was vying for a role in the upcoming redo of Ben-Hur, but alas, it looks like her schedule simply won't allow it. 

DC recently announced its ambitious slate of films and, while the studio is determined to stick to those release dates, it sounds like the production schedules themselves are still in a state of flux. I was the first to report that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League were going to be shot back-to-back and be released a year apart, and this development with Gadot is further proof of just how attached the two projects really are. The work required of the talent involved in BvS is »

Seth Rogen To Play Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak In Steve Jobs Biopic

31 October 2014 1:42 AM, PDT

Seth Rogen is the latest funny actor to dive into the dramatic film genre. He will play Steve Wozniak in Sony's Steve Jobs Biopic, which will star Christian Bale as the late Apple co-founder.

According to Variey, Rogen will play the role of Wozniak, who founded Apple with Jobs and Ronald Wayne and is also credited with launching the Apple I and Apple II computers in the late '70s.

Directed by Danny Boyle, the film is based on Walter Isaacson’s book and adapted by Aaron Sorkin. David Fincher was once set to direct the film, but left the project back in April due to compensation and over control of the production. Sorkin has mentioned that the movie will be divided into three long scenes, each taking place backstage before one of Apple's famous product launches.

Rogen's casting comes as a huge surprise. The actor is known for inappropriate comedies like Superbad, »

Video Interview: Talking with the Cast of 'Hit by Lightning'

31 October 2014 12:14 AM, PDT

A few days ago we had the chance to sit with the cast of the upcoming film "Hit by Lightning" and talk about the project.

The film follows Ricky (Jon Cryer) the loneliest man in North America, who finally meets the perfect woman, Danita (Stephanie Szostak), but there's one catch. She's married and wants him to kill her husband. Even though quirky and shy fast food manager Ricky has never ever killed a spider, he agrees to do it with the help of his best friend and accountant, Seth (Will Sasso) and the comedy ensues from there.

Check out our Exclusive interview with the cast below.

Hit by Lightning is in theaters October 31st »

Wonder Woman Film To Take Place In The 1920s

31 October 2014 12:05 AM, PDT

A Wonder Woman film is finally coming to screens in 2017, but according to the latest rumors, the film itself won’t take place in 2017 (or the present). Apparently the first Wonder Woman movie will take place in the 1920s.

In the film a man will arrive on Paradise Island, the home of Wonder Woman and her fellow Amazons, and his arrival will eventually lead Wonder Woman to leave the island and explore the world. The sequel will then take place in the 30s and 40s during World War II and the eventual third film will take place in the present day.

Some fans might wonder how Wonder Woman could have been around for so long without a mention of her in Man of Steel. I’m sure the films will have a way to make sure the continuity makes sense (at least I hope so).

Sony's 'Glass Ceiling' is an All Female Spider-Man Team

30 October 2014 3:52 PM, PDT

There was a hot 20 minutes the other day before Marvel announced it's complete Phase 3 line-up that people were thinking it was going to be a big return home for Spider-Man, currently looking pretty broke and exhausted over in Sony Pictures land. 

I do no think that is possible. If you're Sony, why give away all that potential superhero franchise money to the people who Obviously do not need their once-banner property back? At least not until you drive it all the way into the ground, and Amazing Spider-Man 2 is not rock bottom.

Thusly, we get rumors of a Sinister Six movie that will re-boot the character, or a Venom movie, maybe (because give that character another chance to kill the franchise, why not?). Now, in the craziest, zeitgeist-chasing-ist, wacked-out rumor of a Spider-Man movie yet, we get some rumored details on that "female lead" installment we've suspected.

Exclusive Interview with Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo for ‘Nightcrawler’

30 October 2014 12:46 PM, PDT

Journalism is a dark and competitive business.

Nightcrawler” is in theaters tomorrow that stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo in this fun dark satire of the journalism business.

Here’s the synopsis:

Nightcrawler is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling -- where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou blurs the line between observer and participant to become the star of his own story.

First Clip from Nolan's 'Interstellar' Has Touched Down On The Web

30 October 2014 8:33 AM, PDT

Matthew sure does get emotional whenever he drives his Lincoln...

Christopher Nolan's next film, Interstellar, is almost upon us. Until now, all we've gotten to work with are the various trailers and TV spots that have been released. But now, thanks to Time Magazine, we've got our first clip to look at. 

It's an interesting clip, and one that gives a strong sense at the kind of morality and commentary that Nolan wants to tell with this story. The British director has often shown great fondness for using the larger-than-life premises of his film as metaphors for much more real-world ideas.

Interstellar arrives in theaters next week, on November 5. It'll feature the acting talents of Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Wes Bentley, Michael Caine, and many more.

Spielberg's 'Robopocalypse': Dead or Alive?

30 October 2014 8:10 AM, PDT

When your name is Steven Spielberg, you can afford to be choosey with your projects. Even better, you can afford to be patient. When a Spielberg film drops off the map for a while, it doesn't necessarily mean it's dead- like it might with other directors. It just means that he's taking a step back to get it right, as opposed to just racing forward with something that's half-baked. Such is the case with Robopocalypse, the sci-fi flick that Spielberg has long been linked to bringing to the big screen.

We almost got this thing years ago. He had slated production to begin once he was finished with War Horse. Well, as you might have noticed, War Horse came out in 2011 and we still don't have any Spielbergian robots storming our screens. The director, seemingly dissatisfied with the state of the script, and the studio- alarmed by what it would »

Holy Gaping Mouths, Batman! New 'Terminator' Character Photos!

30 October 2014 7:47 AM, PDT

With yesterday's big reveal from Terminator: Genisys, thanks to the film gracing the cover of Entertainment Weekly, it was only a matter of time until more images began to flood the net. Today we've gotten our hands on a few new character shots, depicting Arnold SchwarzeneggerEmilia Clarke and Matt Smith.

Hmm, I don't know who that last one is. But he sure is handsome.

Think director Alan Taylor is going around saying, "No. That's not big enough. I want to be able to fit my entire fist in your mouth!"? Either way, there's your continued first-look at Taylor upcoming relaunch of the Terminator franchise.

Terminator: Genisys will see Arnold Schwarzenegger return to his most iconic role, this time surrounded by a cast of new actors playing familiar roles in a time-jumping sci-fi epic that's meant to kick off a new trilogy.

Michael Bay in Negotiations to Helm Benghazi Film ‘13 Hours’

30 October 2014 4:55 AM, PDT

A Banghazi political drama is a different movie for Michael Bay.

Don’t worry though. It’ll still have plenty of explosions and flying bullets.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bay is in talks to direct “13 Hours,” an adaptation of Mitchell Zuckoff’s book about the attack on the American embassy in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

The script is written by Chuck Hogan (“The Town,” “The Strain”).

The focus will be on a security team that tried to defend the compound from terrorists on Sept. 11, 2012.

The project will be under the Paramount banner and has a budget in between $30 to $40 million.

Joss Whedon Talks ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

30 October 2014 4:41 AM, PDT

Details, details, details!

The Internet is hungry for more details on the upcoming “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

After the leak of the trailer and the two official trailer releases afterwards, many fans, bloggers and sites are breaking down the details frame-by-frame.

So the best source of information will be from the film’s director Joss Whedon.

Marvel Entertainment had a sit down interview with him.

Whedon revealed some of the places they shot for the movie including Italy, South Korea and Bangladesh. He also talked about the cast and film editing for the movie.

Just too bad he provide more details about the trailer’s mystery woman played by South Korean actress Claudia Kim or Andy Serkis. Serkis is rumored to be Ulysses Klaw. There’s a lot of rumors about Kim, but the most likely scenario will be she is just a scientist—not a superhero like Wasp or Cybermancer. »

Update: A24 Picks Up Alex Garland's 'Ex-Machina,' Releases New Posters

29 October 2014 5:01 PM, PDT

A24 has just picked up the rights to Alex Garland’s directorial debut Ex Machina, starring Oscar Isaac, Domhall Gleeson, and Alicia Vikander. The announcement came with a teaser poster, which you can see below. 

Also written by Garland (28 Days Later, Sunshine), the film was produced by DNA’s Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich. Scott Rudin and Eli Bush executive produced the film along with former Film4 head Tessa Ross. A24 will release the film in the U.S., while Universal International Pictures is distributing the film internationally.

The posters are confident and futuristic, with the words "To Erase The Line Between Man And Machine Is To Obscure The Line Between Men And Gods" lined at the top. For some reason it reminds me of an ad for a very luxurious and expensive car, but maybe that's just me. Here it is:

Universal is building up hype for the new Fast and the Furious film – now titled Furious 7 – by releasing several 7-second behind-the-scenes videos.

These clips are all leading up to an event on November 1st, when Universal will unveil the trailer for the film. There will also be a special live broadcast at 12pm Pst/3pm Est where the cast will answer fan questions.

With the tragic death of Paul Walker, people will be paying attention to this film probably more than any other Fast and the Furious movie ever. To top it off this is the seventh movie in the franchise so expectations are high as it is.
