Scream Factory Sends Tobe Hooper’s Invaders From Mars To Bluray This April!!

26 minutes ago | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

You love Scream Factory, I love Scream Factory, we all love Scream Factory. It’s time to love the gang at Sf a little more, with their announcement of Tobe Hooper’s 1986 remake of Invaders From Mars making its Bluray debut, when it hits shelves on April 7th. The last time we saw the Scream Factory treatment of a Hooper film, was the Awesome Bluray release of Lifeforce (the collector’s edition of it has sadly gone semi-out of print now), and Invaders From Mars is yet another underrated gem in the filmography of Hooper, so with the announcement, along with a Brand New retrospective including on the disc, it’s martian time. We all love Leatherface and Co. but hey, let’s get us some aliens!

Michael Keaton says he was lucky to be a part of Batmania

1 hour ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Monica — Michael Keaton has been asked about a sequel to "Beetlejuice" enough times to surely be sick of it by now, because the thing has moved at such a glacial pace there just isn't much to be said. But his work in the original film came at a time when his career was really taking off, and playing in the expressionistic world of Tim Burton in both that film and the first two "Batman" movies was a wholly new and exciting experience for him. In one, he helped build a character from the ground up, while in the other, he found himself at the center of a raging pop culture tempest. Both roles are iconic in their own ways, and looking back, Keaton can — as ever — find nothing but gratitude for getting to be a part of it. "Batman" in particular was a personal landmark, a movie that grabbed »

Identify These 2015 Movies From A Single Image...If You Can

3 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I'm normally pretty decent at games like this, but there are a few here that are just baffling to me. Sploid pointed us to this piece of art by Silenzio, a French artist who created this table full of icons of upcoming 2015 movies. A few are obvious — the lightsaber is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the T-rex head is Jurassic World, etc. — but there are a handful that I honestly can't figure out. The little numbers on the tiles indicate whether that film is a sequel, and which number sequel it is - so the gun in the bottom left would be Spectre, because it's the 24th Bond film.

Can you name them all? »

Star Wars: Battlefront — EA Reconfirms Launch With The Force Awakens

3 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It's almost been 10 years since a new Star Wars: Battlefront game was released. After several failed attempts, the game went into development at EA's Dice Studios in 2013. We've previously posted a teaser trailer, full trailer, and news that the game was coming in the holiday season of 2015.

Ewan McGregor Thinks Star Wars: The Force Awakens Already Got One Big Thing Wrong

3 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It doesn.t look like .ole Obi-Wan Kenobi will have a role when Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens hits this December. However, Ewan McGregor, who played the younger version of the grizzled Jedi and a veteran of some of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy.s most seizure-inducing lightsaber battles, has some lightsaber-related criticism on the upcoming film.s most notable new weapon. While discussing his thoughts on Episode VII with Vanity Fair, McGregor brings up what is increasingly becoming the film.s 800 lb. gorilla in the new, quasi-medieval crossguard model lightsaber wielded by new character, Kylo Ren. His initial thought on the matter was that he was "a bit dubious," adding: It.s got a hilt now. You don.t need a hilt. If you know how to handle a lightsaber, like we did, you don.t need a hilt. That.s just one thing that I think »

Could Chris Pratt be the man for another Indiana Jones crusade?

4 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Reports suggest Chris Pratt, hot off Guardians of the Galaxy and the forthcoming Jurassic World, could be picking up Indy’s hat and whip – and he could provide just the right mix of gravitas and comedy

There hasn’t always been a great deal of buzz around the idea of reviving Indiana Jones on the big screen, largely due to lingering fears that Shia Labeouf might somehow be allowed to graduate from Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’s charmless sidekick to the lead role in some nightmarish, CGI gopher-ridden future instalment. But a side product of the deal that released Star Wars from the clutches of George Lucas in 2012 also brought Indy to Disney, and a new report on Deadline suggests the studio is now looking to install Guardians of the Galaxy’s Chris Pratt in the lead role.

What a strange time it must be for Harrison Ford. The »

41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

5 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.

Star Wars: The Weird Way J.J. Abrams Reacted After Harrison Ford's Injury

6 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We all react to incidents in different ways. Some choose to lash out at others in the wake of pain or tragedy. Some choose to internalize everything until it explodes out of them in a fury or tears. But if you.re like Star Wars: Episode 7 director J.J. Abrams, you might turn all this pent-up energy into an emotional speech about how beautiful the moon is. At least, this was what happened after Harrison Ford broke his leg. We all know the story of how Han Solo got injured on the set of the new Star Wars movie: the Millennium Falcon door broke off its hinges and impaled him, breaking his leg and sending him to the hospital. With the 72-year-old.s health in jeopardy, not to mention his future in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Abrams was undoubtedly worried for the man. However, after the incident when »

Ghostbusters 3 All-Female Cast Revealed

Paul Feig (@paulfeig) January 27, 2015

Ghostbusters 3 has been in the works for years now, but the movie quickly fell apart following the death of original cast member Harold Ramis. Though Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson were up for a return, Bill Murray proved elusive, and director Ivan Reitman ultimately decided to scrap plans to turn his beloved film series into a trilogy.

Sony weren’t about to let it die however, and a reboot was put in the works with an all-female cast and Bridesmaids director Paul Feig at the helm. This was met with a mixed response from fans, but it’s happening regardless, and now the four actresses who will make up the main team of Ghostbusters have finally been revealed.

Those are Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly), Kristen Wiig (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), and Saturday Night Live players Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. »

Insane Darth Vader Fan Art by Furio Tedeschi

6 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Check out this striking piece of Star Wars fan art created by Furio Tedeschi. It gives us one of the most badass fan-made character designs of Darth Vader that I've ever seen. I especially like the fact that he's not wearing his iconic helmet, and he looks like one evil bastard. He's a lot more frightening here than when we saw his real face for the first time in Return of the Jedi. I was never a big fan of that potato head look. This version is much better. The suit design is pretty cool too. What do you think?  »

"Mission Impossible 5" Move Up Due To IMAX?

8 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the biggest news stories of this week was the news that Paramount Pictures has moved up its fifth "Mission: Impossible" film by a full five months, moving out of a planned Christmas Day release to one on July 31st.

The Wrap claims a big reason for the shift was to not only to get the film out of direct competition with Disney's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," but also to get it out of that film's likely plans to hog IMAX screens over the holidays.

The previous film in the series, "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol," filmed key sequences in IMAX and made a sizeable portion of its nearly $700 million worldwide gross from the giant screen format.

By going on July 31st, the only potential threat to MI5 is the remake of "Point Break" which has yet to release any publicity material and isn't expected to draw anywhere »

The Flash Executive Producer On What's Next With The Speed Force

10 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In addition to last nights debut of Pied Piper (Andy Mientus) and the glimpse of Harrison Wells' (Tom Cavanagh) true intensions, Flash viewers heard the Speed Force mentioned for the first time.  Flash executive producer Andrew Kreisberg explained to Entertainment Weekly what that means for the series moving forward.  "Right now, the Speed Force is a little bit like the force in Star Wars before midi-chlorians came along. It’s an amorphous thing, which hopefully for comic book fans will make them feel like we’re heading in certain directions. For right now, it’s a catch-all phrase that speaks to a grander universe and a grander power and ultimately grander abilities. If you know the comics and you know what having access to the speed force gives you the abilities to do."

Disney Wants to Reboot Indiana Jones with Chris Pratt

12 hours ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When Disney acquire "Star Wars," it also got the rights to the "Indiana Jones" franchise. And while the initial plan was seemingly to have Shia Labeouf become the new Indy, the studio is now considering going in a different direction. According to Deadline, Disney is currently at the early stages of bringing another "Indiana Jones" installment to the big screen. But it won't be Harrison Ford reprising his role. Instead, Disney is eyeing Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) to take over the part in order to rebuild the franchise around him. The last film in the series was "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," which hit theaters in 2008. It wasn't loved by critics, but ended up grossing $786 million worldwide. »

Best of Late Night TV: Lucy Hale's 'Pretty Little Liars' Censorship, Stephen Hawking's Whitney Houston Crush (Video)

13 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"Pretty Little Liars" star Lucy Hale was on "Conan" Tuesday night, and she talked about how her sexy Cosmo cover embarrassed her father. It wasn't the photo as much as the cover words. Her dad saw the headline "Best Sex Ever" and he thought that was her interview. He texted her to say she looked great but he wasn't too excited about the articles. (He probably read them all, though.) Lucy also talked about "Pretty Little Liars," which is Conan's "neighbor" in the studio lot. Pll has a pink golf cart that's all decked out. On the show, they say "bitches" a lot, and they put it on »

‘Jupiter Ascending’ Debuts to Muted Crowd at Sundance

13 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Sundance Film Festival isn’t a typical launchpad for studio blockbusters, but Warner Bros. surprised theater-goers on Tuesday night by unveiling the Wachowski siblings’ “Jupiter Ascending” at a “surprise screening.”

The invitation-only event, which was not billed as a premiere, was the first time “Jupiter Ascending” was shown to the public. Variety broke news of the screening on Tuesday afternoon, but there were other clues the audience wasn’t about to see a typical Sundance indie.

When attendees with tickets arrived at the Egyptian Theater in Park City, they were handed 3D glasses.

Despite the hype of a secret screening, clusters of seats inside the 300-person venue remained empty, and a handful of patrons walked out of the two-hour-plus space epic starring Mila Kunis as a princess and Channing Tatum as an intergalactic soldier tasked with rescuing her.

The Wachowskis’ flair was fully on display, with sequences reminiscent of “The Matrix” or “Star Wars. »

Is Chris Pratt Set For ‘Indiana Jones’ Reboot?

15 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With Disney having acquired Lucasfilm, it’s easy to forget that it’s not all just about Star Wars. Rumours are now leaking out of a possible Indiana Jones reboot, with Chris Pratt taking over from Harrison Ford. The last film in the franchise, Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, was absolutely awful on most accounts, but still went on to be a box-office hit. There were mutterings of a fifth film, but it now seems as though Disney would rather start over again.

The move seems to make sense, as Ford can hardly be expected to carry a brand new series of films. Pratt meanwhile, is already the lead in Disney’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, which has a confirmed sequel, as well as heading up the fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World. The first two films in that series of course being »

Parks And Recreation Review: “Gryzzlbox/Save Jj’s” (Season 7, Episode 5&6)

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Parks and Recreation continues on the up-and-up as we enter the middle of the season and see Leslie and company attempting to solve the Gryzzl debacle once and for all. But first: drones. Because, of course, since everything in 2017 knows your private data, “Gryzzlbox” mines some pretty topical issues in typical heightened Parks and Recreation fashion.

Leslie’s beaten by the fight with Gryzzl and is at the end of her rope (her last remaining argument is, “Please give me your land, it would be so nice”), so when a squadron of drones begin dropping the eponymous Gryzzlboxes on residential doorsteps – all full of thoughtful, intensely personal gifts – the Parks Department thinks they may finally have their smoking gun to beat Gryzzl.

Meanwhile, Tom is helping Andy with a tricky contract negotiation with the studio that airs his show – The Johnny Karate Super Awesome Musical Explosion Show, lest you forget »

Review: 'Parks and Recreation' - 'Gryzzlbox/Save JJs'

18 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's two "Parks and Recreation" episodes coming up just as soon as James Woods follows my niece on Twitter... In part because we're getting two episodes a week, this final season sure doesn't seem like it's wasting time, does it? Leslie and Ron's personal feud ended by the fourth episode, he joined her in the fight against Gryzzyl by the end of the fifth, and the matter of the Newport land and the national park was resolved by the end of the sixth, less than halfway to go into the season. It's a pretty abrupt narrative shift from the show that took nearly six seasons to break ground on the park Leslie proposed in the first episode, but I appreciate this newfound speed for a couple of reasons. First, it helps illustrate the bigger stakes and the greater power Leslie has as a high-ranking federal official (though, »

Disney Reportedly Wants Chris Pratt As Its New 'Indiana Jones'

18 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Back when Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012, all eyes were on Star Wars. And rightfully so, since the main reason Disney wanted the house George Lucas built was so that it could make a new trilogy (and then some). But that was far from the only lucrative property under Lucas' thumb. They also have one of the most beloved film characters of all time in the mix: Indiana Jones. Since that acquisition, there have been quite a few rumors about a new Indiana Jones movie, but nothing solid has risen to the surface. Now there's a new rumor to throw in the mix, but this one is so obvious and logical that it may very well be true: Disney wants Chris Pratt to headline a new Indiana Jones franchise. It is strictly a rumor at this point, as Deadline insists Disney won't comment so...
