Scream Factory has detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh, providing us with a look at the cover art and the list of bonus features:

A film by award-winning filmmaker Bill Condon (Gods And Monsters, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) and based on legendary Clive Barker’s popular short story, Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh continues the tale of the phantom-like figure who wreaks a terrible fate upon those who chant his name five times while looking into a mirror… and come face to face with grisly death. Executive produced by Clive Barker (Nightbreed, Lord of Illusions), the cult horror hit Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh stars Tony Todd (Final Destination) and Kelly Rowan (The O.C.) with Timothy Carhart (24, Witness) as Paul McKeever and Veronica Cartwright (The Town That Dreaded Sundown »

Blu-ray Review: Criterion Release of Peter Weir’s Mesmerizing ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’

14 July 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Peter Weir’s “Picnic at Hanging Rock” is a mesmerizing film. Most who go into it know that it tells a tragic (possibly true) story with no resolution. And so it becomes a slow burn, in which the atmosphere and dread of unseen danger hangs thick in every frame.

Weir broke through on the international film scene with this surprise hit, a film that introduced the world to one of the best directors of the ’80s and ’90s. He would go on to give us more traditional and yet masterful works like “Witness,” “Fearless,” “The Truman Show,” and “Master and Commander” and yet when I hear his name, “Picnic at Hanging Rock” is the first film I think of.

Rating: 4.5/5.0

It is a defiantly bizarre, terrifying film that defies easy categorization or even synopsis. On one hand, it’s a mystery, but it’s one without a conclusion (which notoriously »

The New ‘Interstellar’ Trailer Isn’t Meant to Save the World

16 May 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Some people just wanna watch the world burn. Christopher Nolan might be one of them. It’s been almost half a year since our last tease, but this new Interstellar trailer gives the full force of the fire. Our wonderful planet is doomed, so the only hope for humanity is to find a new place to live. That’s where engineering whiz Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and a visionary played by Michael Caine come into the picture. Yet while the larger focus is traveling to another star, Cooper is tethered to this planet by his daughter Murphy (Mackenzie Foy). Check out the trailer for yourself: Big and epic with an out-of-context edge toward the schmaltzy. What the trailer only barely hints at is the full throttle cast at work here. Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, William Davane, Topher Grace, and on and on. This is either a rounded ensemble operation or even the »

Star Wars casts some future Oscar nominees

30 April 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

One of the most interesting things that I took away from yesterday’s official casting news about Star Wars: Episode VII is just how great the cast will look a decade down the line (that and how much the powers that be must have enjoyed Inside Llewyn Davis when they saw it last year, but more on that in a moment). Yes, I have a suspicion that there will be a few Oscar nominations for the cast down the line, though most likely not for this film. It’s a cast that’s chock full of emerging talent, not to mention one acting legend who already has some big citations on his resume. For those unaware, it was announced yesterday that John Boyega, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis, and Max von Sydow would be joining original saga stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, »

The dangers of the Australian Outback: Wolf Creek, Snowtown, more

26 April 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Australia... it's a vast, beautiful, welcoming country. It's also full to bursting with things that can kill you, if the big screen is to be believed. Inspired by Mia Wasikowska's plucky 1,700-mile trek across the Outback in Tracks, we flag up the traps and tropes she should watch out for.

(Un)Natural Phenomena

Exotic wildlife proliferates Down Under, most of it deceptively lethal. Witness the baby stolen by a dingo in horrifying Meryl Streep-starrer A Cry In The Dark (1988). The same – real – tragedy loosely inspired Razorback, a mullet-tastic 1984 horror about a giant marauding pig, directed by Highlander's Russell Mulcahy (mooted tagline: 'There Can Only Be Oink'). The less said about the ballet-dancing were-roos of The Marsupials: The Howling III (1987), the better.

Much more convincing is the giant CG crocodile munching Radha Mitchell's boat tour group (ex-Neighbours actors constitute an Outback peril all of their own) in 2007's Rogue, »

Star Wars cast: Ford, Fisher, Hamill before they were famous

14 March 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

When news broke earlier this week that five young up-and-coming actors were in line for the lead Jedi role in Star Wars Episode VII, Google search bars will likely have been working overtime as film fans tried to match faces to names.

Ed Speleers, John Boyega, Jesse Plemons, Matthew James Thomas and Ray Fisher may not be household names, but Star Wars has a history of turning unknowns into big stars.

With the casting cogs turning for Star Wars: Episode VII, we take a look at what Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher were up to before they met George Lucas.

Harrison Ford

Now a bona fide movie icon, it's common knowledge that Ford struggled early on in his career and starting working as a carpenter to support his family between acting gigs. Sometimes Ford didn't even get an acting credit at all, and on one occasion he was »

From Hitchcock Leading Lady to the Producer of a Top Best Picture Contender: Full List of Presenters at the 2014 Academy Awards

24 February 2014 2:37 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Oscar 2014 presenters range from Alfred Hitchcock heroine to ’12 Years a Slave’ producer (photo: Oscar 2014 presenter Jennifer Lawrence) Expect at least a couple of standing ovations at the 2014 Academy Awards ceremony to be held on Oscar Sunday, March 2, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles. Oscar 2014 producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced earlier today the complete list of movie celebrities — all actors, including a handful of actor-directors / actor-producers — who will be presenters at the ceremony, to be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, and which will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide — even in the United States, via the ABC network. (See the full list below.) Among the Oscar 2014 presenters, you’ll find a number of past Oscar winners and nominees. With a couple of exceptions, not from the very distant past, mind you, as the overwhelming majority of presenters are performers working in »

Theatre Review: An Evening With Sylvester Stallone

12 January 2014 5:17 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Image: Jonathan Brady/Pa

Featuring: Sylvester Stallone, Jonathan Ross.

Produced by: Rocco Buonvino, Joe Ricotta.

It’s quite a thing sitting in the same room as one of your idols. All sorts of questions go through your mind. What will they be like? Will they live up to your expectation? Will they epitomise the legend you imagined and would like them to be? Will they somehow acknowledge my existence in the world.

After years of seeing them on the screen worshiping the cinematic ground that they walk upon, one worries to think that they may turn out to be the complete opposite; a prize douche, headstrong and egotistic, and nowhere near the god you thought they were. This is dangerous, life-ruining stuff, and not to be taken lightly.

On Saturday evening, I and around 2000 fellow film fans braved the aforementioned trepidations, faced our fear and stepped into one of the West End, »
