Nicolas Cage to star in horror-thriller Mom and Dad

3 hours ago

Nicolas Cage is set to reunite with Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance co-director Brian Taylor for the horror-thriller Mom and Dad, Variety is reporting.

The film “follows a teenage girl and her little brother who must survive a wild 24 hours during which a mass hysteria of unknown origins causes parents to turn violently on their own kids.”

“This is the kind of role Nick was put here to play,” states Taylor. “Human, funny, scary – somehow grounded while at the same time completely off the rails. For a filmmaker there is nothing quite like the experience of Nick Cage bringing a character you’ve written to life.”

Production on Mom and Dad is set to get underway in July.

The True Genius of Deadpool – watch Flickering Myth’s Jump Cut #2

5 hours ago

Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin) is a lot of things – crude, violent, silly; nothing particularly new in the comic book-superhero movie genre. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a game changer. In Jump Cut #2, Oli argues its true genius will change the way you watch all other superhero movies. Watch the video below, or read the transcript beneath that.

A lot of people are going to say that Deadpool is revolutionary in the comic book movie genre. That we’re finally getting a grown up superhero film with cuss words and exposed bosoms. The sentiment is understandable – Marvel have dominated the last half-decade with Avengers movies and movies that build up to Avengers movies, which all cater to a family audience. They’re made to be watched by everyone, which means those specifically adult things we just mentioned – like the swear words and the violence and the boobs »

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Episode 13 Review – ‘The Call’

5 hours ago

Chris Cooper reviews the thirteenth episode of Star Wars Rebels season 2…

How frustrating. The trailer for the second half this season promised a hell of a lot. Four episodes in though and we’ve seen very little, if any, of what was shown.

Sure, it’s probably being saved for the last few episodes, but why is the show mucking around? ‘The Call’ is a completely…fine…episode…I guess? It doesn’t move the overall story forward in any way, or build on anyone’s personal arc, so despite some nice ideas and visuals it doesn’t really do anything. Are the show runners just filling an episode order?

Ok, the positives. Like last week, Rebels is endeavouring to give us different viewpoints on well established pieces of Star Wars lore. Whilst the Lasat gave us a new way of looking at and interacting with the force, this week »

She babbles, parties like a monster, cooks everything in sight — and is looking to do something terrible when she meets Francis (Sam Rockwell; The Way Way Back). To anyone else, Francis’s approach would come across as creepy, but Martha can’t help but be intrigued. They seem a perfect match: she’s bananas, he’s bananas… except he’s a deadly sort of bananas. He’s a professional assassin.

Francis is a hitman with a cause: he unexpectedly kills the people ordering the hits. Just as Martha begins »
