‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Interstellar’ Shine at Saturn Awards

26 June 2015 12:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Interstellar” drew the most wins at the 41st annual Saturn Awards, taking six awards including top science fiction film. But “Guardians of the Galaxy” also had a big night, picking up awards for top comicbook film, best director and best actor for Chris Pratt.

Jonathan Nolan accepted the screenwriting honor for “Interstellar.” He quipped: ” ‘Interstellar’ is the story of a man who goes on an arduous journey, comes back 100 years later to find that nobody remembers him or gives a f–k about what he was doing. It’s a pretty good metaphor for writing a studio film.”

“Guardians” director James Gunn accepted for Pratt, then was recalled to the podium twice more in quick succession to accept his own kudos and the top honor for the film. Gunn eschewed the “cocktail attire” dress code for a black sweatshirt emblazoned with a kitten. Gunn read a message from Pratt: “James Gunn is the future. »

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Looks to Smash Box Office Records

28 April 2015 2:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Audiences are assembling in force to see “Avengers: Age of Ultron” this weekend, in what is shaping up to be a blockbuster debut with few equals.

AMC is reporting dozens of opening-night sellouts, MovieTickets.com is moving tickets at four times the rate of the first “Avengers” and Fandango says pre-sales for the latest chapter in the saga of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes matches those for all previous Marvel Studios films combined. Given that kind of fanboy fervor, it’s unsurprising that Disney, Marvel’s corporate parent and the film’s distributor, is pegging a debut north of $200 million. Outside tracking firms are even more bullish, projecting the picture will bow to $215 million or higher.

Barring a machine uprising, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” will be only the second film in history to top $200 million in its debut, but that’s not the only benchmark the super team is looking to surpass. »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Burnt Offerings

10 April 2015 4:44 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This was ground zero. This was where the love affair started; all the sleepless nights, the cold sweats, the screaming. In 1976, at the age of six, my mom took me to the theater to see Burnt Offerings, my first horror movie.

Six years old. Up until this point my viewing memories consisted of Saturday morning cartoons and a matinee memory of seeing a giant octopus engulf a ship (submarine?). Little did I know that I was to be indoctrinated into a universe of monsters, vampires, guys with knives (girls too), killer critters, ghosts, goblins, and, in my inaugural visit to the screen of screams… the Haunted House.

Well, that description is a little off. The house in Burnt Offerings isn’t haunted exactly; it is…alive. A living, pulsing being that every so often needs a new family to love it. Cherish it. And to be consumed by it so »

The Gremlins reboot has a new writer

8 April 2015 11:58 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the Gremlins reboot still going, it's been revealed that a new writer has joined the project: Red Eye and Disturbia's Carl Ellsworth...

The last we heard, the long-mooted Gremlins reboot was on hold.

The new addition to the film series created by the great Joe Dante was being written by Seth Grahame Smith, but in January, he revealed that the project had "run out of steam" - producers Christopher Columbus (who wrote the  1984 original) and Steven Spielberg were, he said, busy on other projects.

"I think we just ran out of steam", he said. "It's one of those things where everybody got so busy doing other things. It's something I would love to come back to, but right now, Steven's making two movies back to back and Chris Columbus is busy [making Pixels]. We're all taking a five-minute break on that".

We're now hearing that Grahame-Smith, the writer of »

Conan O’Brien Turned Robert Durst Into a Terrifying Pop-Up Ghoul

24 March 2015 2:06 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Capitalizing on the recent (rabid) popularity of HBO's The Jinx, Conan O'Brien took a moment at the beginning of his late-night show to lampoon "the creepy millionaire accused of three murders." According to Conan, Robert Durst is so sneaky that his floating, ghostly likeness can pop up anywhere and everywhere. Sos, Durst alert! The clip's kind of like a shorter version of that horror movie It Follows, just with retro Dark Shadows music and Popsicle sticks. »

Avengers: Age of Ultron: Will it out-gross The Avengers?

1 March 2015 4:11 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on whether Avengers: Age of Ultron will out-gross The Avengers…

Marvel Studios is on top of the world when it comes to box office success and is just two months away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe becoming the highest grossing film franchise of all time when Avengers: Age of Ultron hits screens.  Avengers: Age of Ultron is a shoe in to be one of the highest-grossing films of 2015 and might even break a few records. However, what I don’t think it will do is make more than its predecessor (which earned over $1.5 billion worldwide in 2012), and for a few reasons.

Let’s talk about the top five highest grossing films of all time, what they mean and why they ended up in the top five. Avatar at number one on $2.788 billion followed by Titanic ($2.788 billion), The Avengers ($1.519 billion), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 ($1.342 billion) and »

Boob on the Tube: Top Ten Worst Movie Adaptations of TV Shows

26 February 2015 11:42 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Some of the greatest (or at least heavily favored) American television shows got the big screen treatment when they were selected to have their small screen following turn into a cinematic experience. Unfortunately, for every beloved nostalgic television show that translated successfully in movie theaters (The Brady Bunch MovieStar Trek, Batman, etc.) there are boob tube stinkers that overtake the good crop. Sure, there are middle-of-the-road movie adaptations of television programs that have a mixed bag reception (1997’s Leave It To Beaver, 1987’s Dragnet, 2012’s Dark Shadows, etc.). Nevertheless, it is always the unflattering fare that receive the bulk of the attention (do you register, 1999’s The Wild, Wild West ?).

In Boob on the Tube: Top Ten Worst Movie Adaptations of TV Shows we will take a look at the top ten televised offenders that dared to venture into cinema’s stratosphere only to end up floating down shamefully »
