If you're among the lucky folks who live in a city with an Alamo Drafthouse theater, you'll be happy to hear the powers-that-be are taking Fantastic Fest 2013 on the road in November. Read on for all the details.

Something wicked this way comes and it's wearing the garb of a Dark Elf. But before Thor: The Dark World's big bad reveals himself, Marvel has one of the movie's lighter moments to share with the world. This one, via Buzz Sugar, features the film's womenfolk and a newbie: Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and pal Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings), here interrupting Chris O'Dowd's moment in the superhero sun. As O'Dowd told Indiewire last year, the cameo is probably the closest he'll get to his own superhero movie. “I didn't think there was any way that I could be in a superhero movie", he said, "so I did a scene in the new Thor movie, just for that". Don't expect more O'Dowd though, sadly. "I just do like one scene." Aside from O’Dowd, Portman and Dennings, the Dark World cast includes Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Zachary Levi, Idris Elba, »
"Witches of East End" pulls off a nearly impossible feat: The new Lifetime drama manages to mix the supernatural with truly clever humor. But did the premiere episode work?
For the most part, the answer may be a definite yes. "Witches of East End" tells the story of a family of immortal witches. There's Joanna Beauchamp (Julia Ormond), the mother of two daughters -- practical Ingrid (Rachel Boston) and hedonistic Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) -- and her wild, cat-like sister, Wendy (Madchen Amick).
All of the Beauchamps are living under complicated curses that mess with immortality. Joanna stays the same age pretty much forever, but she keeps having to give birth to her daughters (who have an unfortunate tendency to get killed in their youth). Wendy, meanwhile, has only nine lives. Considering that she loses one in a car accident mere minutes into the episode, those lives might be running out. »
We Gotta Get Out of This Place was shot in Taft and Corpus Christi, Texas, during winter months where endless dead cotton fields perfectly represent the inescapable bleak feelings suffered by small-town high-school students on the cusp of starting new adult lives. Playing something like a more mature version of Something Wicked This Way Comes minus the supernatural element, writer Dutch Southern's screenplay inserts a maliciously scheming petty criminal father-figure into a teenage love triangle, with deadly results.
Mark Pellegrino (Dexter, Lost) has a career packed with dark roles, but Giff is a unique character. The rural mafia boss is uneducated but possesses a devastating crafty intelligence. Perhaps slightly insane, he is predatory, with a charming, even seductive personality that reveals his vicious intent with the punchline of his never-ending one liners. He employs teens B.J. (Logan Huffman) and Bobby (Jeremy Allen White), whom he coerces into working »

We’re going to see more collaborations between Marvel and Disney over the coming years with their superhero capers bringing in the dosh faster than a rent boy at a private political get-together. We’ve been promised ‘something weird’ is on the way with a project that is still under wraps. We’re unsure if it’s television, film or even a unique comic-book vision. However, a teaser poster has been unveiled today that offers a hint at what’s coming, along with the words “Do You Dare Enter?”.
Could it be concept art for a brand new family fantasy horror film in the same vein as Disney’s 70s efforts Something Wicked This Way Comes and Tower Of Terror, or maybe that much talked about reboot of The Haunted Mansion? What do you guys think?

There are many film festivals on the long, slow path to awards season (a march that begins a mere five months after this year’s Oscars), yet in a season full of festivals all touting potential awards winners, Fantastic Fest stands out from the crowd. Austin’s own beloved festival, with its focus on genre flicks and cult films, is a few steps off the beaten path. Today comes the initial lineup for Fantastic Fest, which offers a hearty blend of Bollywood, gooey horror, and crime stories from all over the world. Keanu Reeves‘ directorial debut - Man of Tai Chi - will also be making an appearance, along with Reeves himself. The film stars Tiger Chen as a martial artist competing in an underground fight club run by Reeves’ character. Robert Rodriguez‘s Machete Kills will open the festival. The newly announced list of films can be seen after the break. Big Bad Wolves »

Fantastic Fest has announced the initial lineup for this year’s festival, which includes the Us premiere of Keanu Reeves’ directorial debut Man of Tai Chi. The pic follows the journey of a young martial artist (Tiger Hu Chen) who’s lured into an underground tournament run by an unsavory chap (Reeves) dead set on corrupting him. Reeves will appear in person at Fantastic Fest to introduce the film, but the initial lineup includes plenty of other great genre pics. Among this year’s Fantastic Fest films are a movie about crime fighters that have been dosed with anti-aging gas called Kid’s Police, an erotic thriller called She Wolf, the story of a murdered man reincarnated as a fly called Eega, and plenty more. As previously announced, Robert Rodriguez’s sequel Machete Kills will also premiere at the festival. Hit the jump to check out some new images from »

It’s almost here, it’s almost here! Less than 2 months from now, Fantastic Fest 2013 will start in the new Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline location and I plan to be there covering the event. This event is something I look forward to all year. Good people, great films, amazing times. The official announcement has been released and while I can cross off some of the guesses that would play the fest, I can’t believe I missed out on one obvious title, Man of Tai Chi. Read below for what has been announced for the first wave!

Speaking of Keanu Reeves (the trailer for his “47 Ronin” can be found here), his directorial debut “Man of Tai Chi” will be making its U.S. debut at Fantastic Fest 2013, and Reeves himself will be showing up in person to greet fans and, we suspect, demonstrate that he does, indeed, know kung-fu. (Or not. He’ll probably just show up to meet fans and answer questions.) Besides “Man of Tai Chi”, Fantastic Fest has also revealed their first wave of programming, which will include these titles: Big Bad Wolves (Israel, 2013) Texas Premiere Director- Navot Papushado & Aharon Keshales, 110 mins The directing team behind the 2010 cult smash Rabies return to Fantastic Fest with one of the best genre films of 2013.

Well, we're pretty sure she's even more excited! The Oscar nominee visitedE! News today to chat with Giuliana Rancic and Terrence Jenkins about her witchy new role—and talk about The Big C's final episodes!

Rejoice and be occasionally suspicious, but in a good way, because Mr Derren Brown, the multi-award winning master of psychological illusion returns to the West End stage with his new one-man show Derren Brown: Infamous.
Following a sell-out 81-date national tour, the dark manipulator brings his unique brand of magic and mind control to the Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, from June 24 to August 17. Infamous, described as a more ‘personal’ show, sees Derren re-united with his close collaborator and friend actor, writer Andy Nyman and he had this to say:
“We abandoned the template that had won us a couple of Oliviers over the years for a very different feel. It’s important to us that the shows feel like something you can’t find anywhere else in theatre or entertainment: not even my own previous efforts. I’m really excited by the result. The show is a secret so »

Last weekend the wall-eyed animated nightmare The Croods was an unexpected slam-dunk at the box office. Like many of you, we were sent into fits of existential panic over the lumpy, prehistoric countenances of the film's jug-faced-yet-allegedly-lovable lead characters, and probably won't be checking out the film anytime soon. After all, we already have plenty of other kid-targeted flicks to pepper our dreams with flashes of unintended terror. Here are a few of the most scarring examples.
(Note - we're focusing here on kids' movies that are way creepier than they probably intended to be, so classic kid-scarring genre flicks like The Dark Crystal, Something Wicked This Way Comes, Watcher in the Woods, etc. are off the table.)
I remember seeing this bizarre Canadian family film in the theatre when it came out in 1985, and I still have an irrational fear of homeless ghosts, paintbrushes made of human hair, »
Fans can now pick up a brand-new edition of the critically acclaimed novel Jago from Titan Books and other major retailers. We recently chatted with author Kim Newman about his horror novel and what awaits readers around that next dark corner.
Amanda Dyar: For those who haven't checked out the book yet--can you tell us briefly about the story and what horror fans have to look forward to?
Kim Newman: It’s about weird things happening in an English village, focused on a cult led by a charismatic, would-be messiah character with enormous psychic powers.
Amanda Dyar: What were your inspirations for your new novel Jago?
Kim: It’s not actually new, but a reissue – it was my third published novel under my own name, appearing in 1991. It was the first novel I began writing, though it changed from its beginnings, and a sub-plot spun off to »
