There is only one name that strikes genuine fear into the heart of Klaus Mikaelson: Mikael.
When Mikael first entered the third season of The Vampire Diaries, he was known as the vampire who hunted vampires. It was then pieced together that he was much more than that. He was the father of the Original family.
And with that discovery came baggage. Years before, when Mikael discovered that his wife had cheated on him with a werewolf and that Klaus was not his biological son, Mikael had cast Klaus aside, labeling him “an abomination.” And when Mikael helped Esther turn their family into vampires, »

"There was a prophecy that our leader would be born to liberate us. That leader is you, Moses." Following the teaser trailer earlier this year, the second full trailer for Ridley Scott's Biblical epic Exodus: Gods & Kings has arrived, and it's epic in every sense of the word. The first trailer seemed to be holding back, but this one paints a beautiful picture of two brothers forced to become enemies. Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton are putting in great performances here, even if the latter's orange skin is a little off-putting, and the scope of this film is huge as evidenced by the arrival of the infamous plagues from God. Watch below! Here's the new trailer for Ridley Scott's Exodus: God & Kings from 20th Century Fox: Watch the original teaser trailer for Exodus: Gods & Kings right here. Exodus: Gods and Kings is directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Robin Hood, »

Digital Spy presents Games on Film, a look back at the numerous (and quite often disastrous) movies based on video games. How closely do they stick to their source material, and how well do they hold up on their own merits?
Previous Games on Film: Resident Evil
Super Mario Bros (1993)
How do you turn a wacky concept like Super Mario Bros into a film? That was the conundrum faced by directors Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel when they inherited the project from French producer Roland Joffe in the early '90s.
Just how Joffe managed to convince Nintendo that a live-action movie about a plumber who stomps on turtles and smashes blocks with his head was a good idea is anybody's guess, but the gaming giant did endorse the venture.
Due to the nature of the source material, a direct adaptation was pretty much impossible, so scriptwriters Jim Jennewein and »
Lili Simmons (True Detective) and David Arquette (Scream) have joined the cast of the “ultraviolent” Western Bone Tomahawk. Kathryn Morris (Cold Case), Evan Jonigkeit (Girls), Sean Young (Blade Runner), and Sid Haig (The Devil’s Rejects) will also appear in this movie from novelist-turned-filmmaker S. Craig Zahler, alongside previously announced actors Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, and Richard Jenkins.
According to the official synopsis, Bone Tomahawk concerns four men who “attempt to rescue a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes that live beyond the edge of civilization.” And if the combination of the words “Kurt,” “Russell, »

Whether you know it or not, you’re probably familiar with the Singularity. If you've seen “2001”, “Blade Runner”, “The Terminator”, “The Matrix”, “I Robot”, “Transcendence” or any number of sci-fi films in which robots and/or computers advance beyond (and often turn against) their masters, then you’ve been gradually indoctrinated to the idea that one day our technology will become more sophisticated than us, and when that day comes we may find our spot at the top of the food chain in serious jeopardy. “Automata”, director Gabe Ibanez’s apocalyptic story of a dying earth and a rising robot consciousness, is the latest sci-fi film to tackle this hypothesis, and works really well as an examp [Continued ...] »
After a lengthy stint on pause, production on cannibal western Bone Tomahawk is moving forward. Just last week the long-gestating directorial debut of S. Craig Zahler added three new names to its call sheet, as Patrick Wilson, Richard Jenkins and Matthew Fox all signed onto the Calibre Media project. Now we can reveal that another handful of actors have come aboard.
Lili Simmons (True Detective), Scream veteran David Arquette, Sean Young (Blade Runner), Sid Haig (The Devil’s Rejects), Evan Jonigkeit (Girls) and Kathryn Morris (Cold Case) have all joined the movie. The story revolves around four men who venture out into the wilderness to rescue a bunch of captives being held by a tribe of nomadic cannibals. Leading the group will be Kurt Russell as chief law enforcer, Sheriff Hunt.
Simmons is set to take on the female lead as Samantha O’Dwyer, the de facto doctor of Bright »

Some movies, no matter how old they are, never age a day. Their situations and themes remain as relevant now as when they were first released. Watching them today, they reflect and comment on our present in ways they couldn’t possibly have anticipated. Every month we’re going to pick a movie from the past that does just that, and explore what it has to say about the here and now. Blade Runner is 1980s cinema in all its glory: moody sci-fi, shoulder pads, the hairstyles, the synth score. But none of those things—rightfully—have ever held the 30-year-old film back from remaining a classic. It’s still a beautifully designed neo-noir, as entrancing visually as it is narratively. Like much of Philip K. Dick’s work (even if it is loosely adapted here), Blade Runner is also becoming increasingly more relevant—especially technologically—practically every passing minute. Here »

Injury Autumn/Winter 2011 Video Look Book. Or a three-minute horror movie trailer. You decide.
Founded by former architecture student and graffiti artist, designer Eugene Leung started his line Injury in Sydney, in 2004. The name Injury came to Leung when he drew a comparison of being “cut and sewn,” and therefore being in “a situation of injury,” to what happens when he manipulates fabrics for his fashion line. Leung says he gets his primary inspiration from horror movie soundtracks, as well as “all things dark, bizarre, gothic, or darkmarish.” His line is also well known for its video look-books, which play out like short unsettling horror movie trailers. Like the one for Injury’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection called “Pandemonium”, above.
Injury’s logo, or a memento from a serial killer?
So what about the clothes?
They are totaly rock and roll, either black or white, and unisex. When it comes to the patterns, »

Ridley Scott has been speaking about two of the hotly-anticipated sequels he’s currently working on, with updates on both Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2. According to Scott, the script for Blade Runner 2 is now complete, and progress now depends on finding time in Harrison Ford’s busy schedule. "It’s on the charts,” says Scott. "I can’t say when that would be yet, because of [Ford’s] thing with Star Wars. It’s a sequel – it’s what happens next. It’s quite surprisingly clever.” All progressing smoothly then. However, Scott threw...

Not all fans of director Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi classic Alien were pleased with the filmmaker’s recent return to that universe with Prometheus in 2012. However, undeterred by the film’s mixed response, Scott is still moving forward with plans for a sequel to that film (without the franchise’s signature creature) as well a follow-up to another of his most revered films, Blade Runner.
That 1982 release, of course, starred Harrison Ford as a police operative tasked with taking down a group of escaped “replicants” in a dystopian futuristic world. Its sequel has gained some momentum in recent months, with Scott proclaiming that the script has been completed and news that Ford was in early talks to ...

I’d argue that classics like “Alien” and “Blade Runner” should be left alone, but clearly director Ridley Scott disagrees. 33 years after the fact, Scott returned to the “Alien” univserse with “Prometheus," a sorta-prequel to the original 1979 film (and if you felt like it was a direct prequel, despite the insistence that it wasn’t, at least the sequel will definitely go off in it’s own direction). And he’s very much still resolute on making a sequel to “Blade Runner” with Harrison Ford. “We met [about ‘Blade Runner 2’] the night before he had the accident,” Scott said in a recent Yahoo interview, referring to Ford and the accident he had on the set of “Star Wars: Episode VII” earlier this year. Written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, Scott clearly likes the drafts that have been written thus far and is lining it up in his schedule. “It’s on the charts, »

Ridley Scott is moving at a fast clip these days. While we’re still waiting to see if the director can deliver on the promise of the eye-popping spectacle we glimpsed in the trailer for his upcoming Biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings," it would appear that the 76-year old filmmaker has more than a few exciting projects coming down the pipeline. The one we know the most about right now is “The Martian,” an adaptation of Andy Weir’s science-fiction novel about an astronaut stranded on —you guessed it— Mars. The film is set to star Matt Damon with a screenplay by “The Cabin in the Woods” scribe Drew Goddard, and has been blessed with a very awards-friendly release date of November 25th, 2015. Then there’s a proposed sequel to his beloved Philip K. Dick adaptation “Blade Runner,” which he recently met with Harrison Ford about (sidenote: the director »

Ridley Scott’s got a lot going on right now, and perhaps too much for those eager to see Blade Runner and Prometheus sequels. Scott is still gunning to make both, but right now he’s got Exodus: Gods and Kings making its way towards a December 12th debut and he’s busy casting up for his next film, The Martian, too. Scott recently revealed hopes to shoot Blade Runner 2 right after The Martian and it seems as though he could pull it off because apparently the script for that one is written and ready to go. Prometheus 2, however, is a different story. That one’s still in the works and there’s a chance that it won’t include any Xenomorphs. Hit the jump for more on both projects. While talking to Yahoo about Exodus: Gods and Kings, Scott noted that he met with Harrison Ford to discuss »

The last time we heard Ridley Scott discussing his upcoming projects -- The Martian, the Blade Runner sequel and Prometheus 2 -- he said, "I've got a lot of ducks in a row, but they're all written." It seems when he used the word "all" he either wasn't being all inclusive or when he said "written" he only meant they had a draft, but not a final version, because he now seems to be suggesting the screenplay for Prometheus 2 is still in the works after 15 drafts. Speaking with Yahoo about his new film, Exodus: Gods and Kings, the conversation turned to his pipeline features and when it comes to the sequel to his 2012 Alien prequel he said, "Right now, as we speak, it's being written. I've had 15 drafts evolving. I definitely want to do that again because I really enjoyed doing Prometheus." The meaty quote that has the Internet on fire, »

Ridley Scott is a busy man, and his schedule doesn.t look to be getting any lighter for the foreseeable future. The Alien filmmaker is currently out doing publicity work for his upcoming Biblical epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings, but he found time to update everyone on the status of two highly-anticipated sequels: Prometheus 2 and Blade Runner 2. The Prometheus update is sure to cause debate in geek circles, though, since Scott reveals some interesting things about Alien.s beloved Xenomorphs. future. Scott chatted with Yahoo! Movies recently, and gave us a State of the Union address on where both films stand. Each project appears to be moving forward at a steady clip, with the sequel to his 1982 cyberpunk classic Blade Runner seems to be further along the pre-production path. "It.s on the charts," Scott says of the follow-up film, which reunites audiences with Harrison Ford.s Replicant hunter. »
Prometheus caused a fair amount of stir when it came out. It was the film that fans of Ridley Scott’s sci-fi masterpiece Alien had been patiently waiting for. The story was originally teased as being a prequel to the famous text, but closer to release Scott stated that it was just a film set within the same universe. That being said those that have seen the film will know that there is a very familiar looking creature that makes an appearance.
After seeing their favourite space alien’s street cred decline slightly with each new film, and with the Alien Versus Predator films all but killing the iconic beast, fans had hoped that Ridley would bring it back into vogue. However the shoe-horned inclusion had fans of the original series in complete uproar, with fans accusing Scott of just including said creature to generate more box office bucks. Scott »
