Horror Channel FrightFest 2016 Review – Cell (2016)

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Cell, 2016

Directed by Tod Williams

Starring John Cusack, Samuel L. JacksonIsabelle Fuhrman, Clark Sarullo, Ethan Andrew Casto, Owen Teague, Stacy Keach

Synopsis:

When a mysterious cell phone signal causes apocalyptic chaos, an artist is determined to reunite with his young son in New England.

Although Steven King is often hailed as the greatest horror author of all-time, he’s not had the best track record of adapting his own work. While it worked wonders with Pet Cemetery, Maximum Overdrive is fantastic for all the wrong reasons and the less said about his TV version of The Shining the better. However his novels have proven time and time again to be great commodities for adaptation (Carrie, The Shining, The Mist, Children of the Corn, The Running Man, etc), and Cell had every chance of being no different.

John Cusack stars as Clay, a comic book artist who is heading back »

Norwegian actress and filmmaker announces end to directing on panel with fellow filmmakers Pernilla August and Iram Haq.

Norwegian actress and filmmaker Liv Ullmann, the two-time Oscar nominee and director of films including Cannes competition title Faithless, has announced that she doesn’t plan to direct again.

Ullmann made the announcement during a talk today at Haugesund’s Norwegian International Film Festival.

“I don’t want to direct anymore,” she said during the festival’s annual public talk, The Amanda Conversation.

“I want to use my strength to act in a film - there I can use it with a sensitive director, and write. I took that decision right now,” the 77-year-old veteran said with a smile.

As an actress, she is hoping to work with Anthony Hopkins in 2017 on an as yet unannounced film. The duo previously worked together on 1977 feature A Bridge Too Far.

Disney Is on Track to Break 2016 Box Office Market Share Record

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney has been having a banner year. And they are set to break the Market Share record when it comes to the 2016 box office. A lot of studios have had to face some pretty serious disappointments when to comes to raking in cash these past couple of months. Paramount is facing massive losses, and Fox had a couple of serious bombs like Independence Day: Resurgence and Ice Age: Collision Course. But Disney, on the other hand, is absolutely dominating with unprecedented success, and things are only going to get better.

According to The Wrap, Disney has a 26.9 percent market share at the domestic box office for 2016 so far. With massive hits like Captain America: Civil War, Zootopia, Finding Dory and The Jungle Book all raking in big money, the couple of under-performing movies the studio has had, like The Bfg and Alice Through the Looking Glass, simply don't matter.

With August almost over and September around the corner, we’re only a few weeks away from the start of Fantastic Fest, taking place September 22nd–29th in Austin, Texas.

The paucity of Marvel and Star Wars actors in the 2016 top 20 suggests the studio doesn’t need to rely on A-list names in the cinematic universe era

How is it possible to explain why Ben Affleck, star of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, is sitting pretty in sixth place on Forbes’ 2016 list of the highest-paid male stars in Hollywood with a whopping $43m in fees, while Harrison Ford, who headlined Star Wars: The Force Awakens, languishes down in 20th position with just $15m in earnings over the past year?

12 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The bond between two sisters should never be underestimated, but even the tightest bonds can be tested with the prospect of fame and glory. Rebecca Zlotowski’s new film “Planetarium” follows two sisters (Natalie Portman and Lily-Rose Depp) who believe they possess the ability to communicate with the dead. While they’re performing in pre-war Paris, they encounter a visionary French producer that wants to put them on screen. Watch the trailer for the film below. (Note: It doesn’t contain subtitles for the French, but much of it is in English and it’s still worth a look.)

Director Gareth Edwards discusses the meaning of the title for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re just a few months away from the release of Disney and Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars anthology movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and during an interview with Empire Online, director Gareth Edwards has been discussing the meaning of the title.

“I’d been thinking about it,” states Edwards. “What does it mean? ‘Rogue One’ is a military call sign to some extent, but this is the first film that’s gone off-piste and is not part of the saga – or the Anakin story – so it’s the ‘rogue’ one, you know? It’s kind of describing [Jyn Erso] as well in a similar way. It has [all] these split, multiple meanings that made it feel like the right choice.”

Well, there goes my bet of it being a codename for Mads Mikkselsen’s Galen Erso…

‘The Grand Tour’ Executive Producer Andy Wilman on Working With Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May

19 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Edinburgh, Scotland — “The Grand Tour,” the new auto show from former “Top Gear” hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, launches on streaming platform Amazon Prime Video in the fall. At the Edinburgh Intl. Television Festival Wednesday the show’s executive producer Andy Wilman, who held the same position on “Top Gear,” explained how the team had started afresh.

Wilman and Clarkson, who had gone to the same school, joined BBC’s “Top Gear” in 2002 and helped build it into the most popular factual show in the world. In March 2015, Clarkson was sacked by the BBC for punching a producer, and Wilman, Hammond and May decided to leave the show, too. In July 2015, Amazon announced that the former “Top Gear” team would be producing a new car show for them, and earlier this year they revealed its name: “The Grand Tour.”

Wilman said there will be 12 shows a year for three years, with »

The 501st Legion announces today their commitment to a first-of-its kind international endowment in a unique partnership with Make-a-Wish. The 501st Legion Make-a-Wish Endowment Fund will allow Make-a-Wish America and Make-a-Wish International to grant more Star Wars-related wishes to children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions.

Star Wars: What Exactly Does "Rogue One" Mean Anyway?

24 August 2016 4:35 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you've been curious about the new Star Wars film called Rogue One, we've got an exciting new piece to the puzzle. The movie, which takes place between Episodes III and IV in the greater Star Wars universe, focuses on a special rebel mission carried out by badass heroine Jyn Erso. As for where Erso fits into Star Wars history, we're not sure. Is she going to be Rey's mother? Could she become Captain Phasma? Erso's origin and impact aren't the only two things that make this film so intriguing. In fact, the title itself seems like a cryptic choice. What does Rogue One actually mean? This week, Empire conducted an interview with Gareth Edwards, the film's director, and he shed some light on the origin of the title phrase. "I'd been thinking about it," he said. "What does it mean?

Star Wars Characters Get Classic Album Cover Mashups

24 August 2016 3:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fan art is something that has just become commonplace in the modern age. For anything that is popular, there are surely plenty of Instagram and Tumblr accounts that are devoted to making art of many kinds in honor of those popular things. Long before it was easy to do so, Star Wars fans have been making fan art, but freelance digital artist Steven Lear has taken it to an awesome new place. Just because he can, Lear has made dozens of images depicting Star Wars characters on famous album covers, and it is really, seriously cool.

The images were posted to his website, which is called Why The Long Play Face, and feature tons of Star Wars characters, ranging from the most famous to the most obscure, photoshopped expertly onto album covers.

Newswire: The Force Awakens on Starz this September

24 August 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Starz isn’t always part of our monthly streaming roundups, but it’s impossible to ignore it when a network becomes home to one of the biggest movies of all time. HBO will probably be showing off some fine stuff in September, but only Starz will have a little film called Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens. Even if you’ve already seen it a few times, Starz getting The Force Awakens means you might be able to catch it randomly while flipping through channels (if you get Starz) or you can just watch it whenever you want (if you’ve got the Starz app). People in 1977 would’ve literally killed somebody for an opportunity to watch Star Wars on their cell phones or Apple TVs or whatever.

In addition to Star Wars, Starz’s September offerings include the original RoboCop trilogy, The Golden Child, a few Halloween »

Is Rey being set up as the villain of ‘Star Wars’?

24 August 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

While much is known about Rey, there is still a lot to be unearthed about the Star Wars hero. The question is: When we finally get to the bottom of who she is, what will we find? One theory being put forth is that perhaps Rey is not the do-gooder she seems. Rather, maybe just maybe, she’s playing the long con and is actually evil. The fan theory is based on Rey’s ability to quickly tap into her Jedi powers and the fact that the Dark Side is already reaching out to her. Plus there are some curious similarities to her personal history and that of Darth Vader. Check out the video above or below and see what you think. »
