James Wan Returns To Direct The Conjuring 2

14 hours ago

The Conjuring was one of the best horror movies in recent years, and that was in no small part due to having director James Wan at helm. Considering that massive success of the film, which spawned the spin-off Anabelle, a sequel was no-brainer. But with Wan currently deep in Fast & Furious 7 territory, he couldn't make it back for the follow-up which had been given a release date of October 23rd 2015. Yesterday, Warner Bros. took the sequel off their 2015 slate, and moved it to an unspecified date in 2016. The reason? Well, according to Deadline, it's to accommodate the return of Wan, who, once free of his promotional duties for Fast & Furious 7, will begin shooting the sequel in the Summer of 2015. This is a development that has me over the moon about. Wan is one of the best directors we have in horror at the moment, able to scare the bejesus out »

Sean Bean Joins Ridley Scott's The Martian

15 hours ago

With Exodus: Gods and Kings hitting the big screen in November, Ridley Scott has turned his attention to his next movie, The Martian, based Andy Wier's 2012 e-book about an astronaut stranded on Mars after the first manned space mission to the Red Planet goes disastrously wrong. Matt Damon is taking the lead as stranded astronaut Mark Watney, with Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, Kristen Wiig, and Jessica Chastain providing support. Now this impressive cast has grown by one, with Sean Bean signing on the dotted line to appear in the movie, marking this as his third space tinged movie in a row after The Wachowski's Jupiter Rising and the Adam Sandler starring Pixels. No doubt the "Don't Kill Sean Bean" memes will be out in force as The Martian gets closer to its release date. The Martian is expected to hit U.S. cinemas on November 25th 2015, while taking a bow »

Disney Announces Animated Movie Moana For 2016

18 hours ago

Setting sail in late 2016, Moana is the latest movie to be announced from Walt Disney Animation Studios, and is directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the film making team behind such Disney classic as Aladdin, Hercules, The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, and, a personal favorite of mine, The Great Mouse Detective. A CG animated comedy-adventure, Moana is set in the South Pacific world of Oceania, and sees the title character, a spirited teenager and born navigator, set out in search of a fabled island, battling enormous sea creatures, encountering ancient folklore, and teaming up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, along the way. Speaking of teaming up with Musker again, Clements said, "John and I have partnered on so many films, from The Little Mermaid to Aladdin to The Princess and the Frog. Creating Moana is one of the great thrills of our career. It's »

IndieCork Film Festival 2014 Award Winners Announced

19 hours ago

After a week of full houses, hundreds of screenings, workshops, discussions, music, food events from local, national and international filmmakers, IndieCork has come to a close for the second year. The second IndieCork awards are primarily for short film. The sections, Creative Cork, Irish Shorts and World Shorts, were more than ever, simply geographical designations and are no reflection on the relative qualities of the films in those sections. Of the 50 Irish shorts screened there were many that would play comfortably in any International selection and it is expected that they will play successfully in festivals outside of Ireland. “We were deeply impressed by the Irish shorts in the programme and have no doubt but that we will be hearing a great deal more from the directors, producers, casts and crews responsible for these films,” Mick Hannigan, festival co-founder, said. “We congratulate them and thank them most sincerely for the privilege of screening their. »

Twisted Celluloid Presents 80's Horror Triple Bill At Triskel Christchurch

20 October 2014 5:49 AM, PDT

Fast becoming a Halloween tradition in Cork, Twisted Celluloid is taking over Triskel Christchurch this Halloween to bring us a triple bill of horror classics that are just begging to be revisited. It all kicks off on Friday 31st October at 7 Pm with one of the first "true" slasher movies, 1980's Friday the 13th, the start of a series which, of course, gave rise to one of the most famous horror movie icons, Jason Vorhees. Another horror icon takes centre stage at 9Pm, with Freddy Kruger terrorising the dreams of a group of teenagers, including a fresh faced Johnny Depp, in 1984's A Nightmare on Elm Street. Then, finally at 11pm, the triple bill is capped off with much maligned 1988 'video nasty' Child's Play, which sees horror's original creepy doll, Chucky, go on his very first rampage. In all, a fantastic night to be had for all fans of horror movies. »
