Trek, X-Files Guys Plan "Freud" Series

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

‎Writer/producer Frank Spotnitz ("The X-Files") and writer/director Nicholas Meyer ("Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan") have teamed to develop a crime series centering on psychologist Sigmund Freud.

Carnival Films ("Downton Abbey") will produce "Freud: The Secret Casebook" which follows the father of psychoanalysis as he becomes history's first criminal profiler in early 20th century Vienna.

The series is said to blend "episodic murder mysteries with the on-going story of Freud’s tangled and provocative personal life." Big Light Productions ("Transporter: The Series") is also developing the project which has yet to be ordered by a network.

Gareth Neame ("Downton Abbey"), Alan Gasmer ("Vikings") and Matt Baer ("Unbroken"), Nigel Marchant, Christian Popp and Alexander Keil will produce.

Greg Weisman Exclusive Interview - Gargoyles, Star Wars Rebels, and Rain Of The Ghosts

24 March 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Writer Greg Weisman is best known for creating Disney's epic 1990s series Gargoyles, but he's also worked on a ton of other projects over the course of his career. I've been a fan of his work since Gargoyles, and he recently published a book called Rain of the Ghosts that I think a lot of you would enjoy. He has also been working on the highly anticipated Star Wars Rebels animated series for Disney and Lucasfilm, which is sure to be a hit.

Weisman was kind enough to take the time to answer a few questions for us regarding Gargoyles, Rain of the Ghosts and Star Wars Rebels. He shares his thoughts on a Gargoyles feature film, goes into detail about his new book, talks about his excitement for Star Wars Rebels, and answers a few other general questions. Our exclusive interview is definitely an interesting read, so check it out below! »

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Review: Caper Sequel Proves Second Verse Can Be as Good as the First

12 March 2014 12:01 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If it's the fate of rebooted franchises to follow in the footsteps of their predecessors, then let's just say that “Muppets Most Wanted” puts a fresher spin on “The Great Muppet Caper” than “Star Trek Into Darkness” did to “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.” Even if the 21st century Muppet features don't quite reach the pinnacle established while Jim Henson was alive, “Muppets Most Wanted” is often as good as or even better than 2011's “The Muppets,” which wonderfully relaunched the cinematic shenanigans of Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and all the felt-covered rest. This latest chapter picks up precisely. »

International Women's Day, 1982 Rulez: this week's new film events

7 March 2014 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

International Women's Day | Under The Skin + Jonathan Glazer Q&A | 1982 Rulez | The Hippodrome Festival Of Silent Cinema

International Women's Day, Bristol & London

Bristol's Translation/Transmission takes International women's day at face value with a documentary survey of women's activism around the world. The scope is equally diverse, from a 1970s deconstruction of Rapunzel to poet Audre Lorde's Berlin years. Each screening is accompanied by discussions and/or introductions. Taking a different tack, April's Birds Eye View film festival launches with a BFI screening of doc Wonder Women! The Untold Story Of American Superheroines, a celebration of female super-empowerment taking in the likes of Xena, Riot Grrrl and, of course, Lynda Carter.

Watershed, Sun to 30 Mar; BFI Southbank, SE1, Sat

Under The Skin + Jonathan Glazer Q&A, London

Blending his visual virtuosity with a mystifying Scottish sci-fi story, Glazer's latest movie is beguilingly strange and highly anticipated. But the questions just »

Re-Viewed: On Her Majesty's Secret Service, the forgotten Bond classic

23 February 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bond 24 confirmed for 2015 release with Sam Mendes returning

James Bond: A history from Ian Fleming to Daniel Craig

On Her Majesty's Secret Service might be the sixth instalment in Eon's James Bond series, but for a long time it had the feel of one of the franchise's rogue entries Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again. Two years after Sean Connery signed off his initial 007 run with You Only Live Twice, producers Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman undertook an exhaustive casting search with director Peter Hunt to find a replacement. They believed, rightly, that the role of James Bond was bigger than anyone who played him, and in 1968 George Lazenby - an Australian model with no prior acting experience - was unveiled as the new James Bond at the Dorchester Hotel.

Lazenby, of course, would only play Bond once and Ohmss's failure to set the box office alight meant »

Oscars Lowdown 2014: Best Visual Effects - Everyone clear a path for 'Gravity'

20 February 2014 12:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In the lead-up to the 86th annual Academy Awards on March 2, HitFix will be bringing you the lowdown on all 24 Oscar categories with multiple entries each day. Take a few notes and bone up on the competition as we give you the edge in your office Oscar pool! The season of Oscars Lowdown (née Oscar Guide) might as well begin with the biggest no-brainer category of the bunch, just to go ahead and get it out of the way. But it's worth pointing out that it's always unfortunate when there's an obvious winner in any category, particularly Best Visual Effects as it seems a number of times over the last few years — "Avatar," "Life of Pi," etc. — there has been a clear dominant player and all other nominees are just along for the ride. Still, this year's likely victor is a landmark every bit deserving of the trophy coming its way. »

Review: "Bad Dreams" (1988) And "Visiting Hours" (1982) Blu-ray Double Feature From Scream Factory

19 February 2014 3:09 AM, PST | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

Scream Factory continues their winning streak of releasing horror film favorites with their double feature Blu-ray release of 1988’s Bad Dreams and 1982’s Visiting Hours. They originally released these films together on DVD in September 2011.

Bad Dreams opened on Friday, April 8, 1988 and is, in hindsight, eerily prescient of David Koresh, the leader of the Branch Davidian religious sect who met a horrific end when the FBI closed in on him and his compound ignited into a conflagration on April 19, 1993 in Waco, TX. Jim Jones and the Jonestown deaths in 1978 also come to mind. In this film, the late Richard Lynch plays a cult leader named Harris who convinces a group of people that love and unity are the only ways to live, and he shows that love by dousing them all in gasoline and lighting them on fire. Jennifer Rubin plays Cynthia, a confused and reluctant holdout »

Examining the critical reaction to The Thing

17 January 2014 4:23 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ryan Lambie 20 Jan 2014 - 06:27

John Carpenter's The Thing was panned by reviewers in 1982. We take a look at the angry critical reaction and the later reassessment...

It's the summer of 1982, and director John Carpenter is on the cusp of releasing his latest movie, The Thing. For the 34-year-old filmmaker, the release marks the end of a major undertaking: the culmination of months of shooting on freezing cold sets and snowy British Columbia locations, not to mention the execution of complex and time-consuming practical effects scenes.

Carpenter was understandably proud of the results: after the independent such independent hits as Assault On Precinct 13, Halloween and Escape From New York, this was his first studio movie (for Universal) and also his most expensive to date, with a budget of around $15m. And while The Thing had appeared in cinemas before (in the guise of Howard Hawks and Christian Nyby's 1951 sci-fi shocker, »

2014's most promising sci-fi and fantasy films

10 January 2014 9:20 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A year to match the halcyon days of the early 80s? Unlikely, but with a Christopher Nolan space odyssey and Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic coming out, there's still plenty to get excited about

• More films to look out for in 2014

Ask a sci-fi fan to name the greatest ever year for genre movies and they will probably nod towards 1982, when Blade Runner, Et, Tron, Conan the Barbarian and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan hit cinemas. It's difficult to predict a return to such dizzy heights in 2014, not least because so many of the movies on offer are remakes, sequels or rip-offs. The celluloid world has had its edges rounded off since the halcyon days of the early 80s, but there's still plenty to get excited about.

Those who shudder at the thought of yet another year of superhero flicks will no doubt be pleased to hear that »
