The Gamechangers: first trailer for Daniel Radcliffe and Bill Paxton's Grand Theft Auto TV drama

5 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

"This is beyond what film can do," says Daniel Radcliffe in this new BBC Two drama about the early days of Grand Theft Auto...

It's no secret that the incredibly lucrative gaming series Grand Theft Auto has batted away controversy since its very early days. However, that's a story that we've not seen fictionalised - until now.

And with the geek-friendly cast of Daniel Radcliffe (as creator Sam Houser) going up against Bill Paxton (as anti-gta lawyer Jack Thompson), there are plenty of reasons to be excited for BBC Two's The Gamechangers.

The first trailer for this televised dramatisation has landed online today. Here it is...

The Gamechangers begins on BBC Two on Tuesday the 15th of September at 9pm.

Film4 FrightFest 2015 Review – Stung (2015)

28 August 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stung, 2015

Directed by Benni Diez

Starring Clifton Collins Jr., Jessica Cook, Lance Henriksen, David Masterson, Matt O’Leary, Cecilia Pillado, Kathleen Renish


A fancy garden party turns into upper class prey when a colony of killer wasps mutates into seven foot tall predators.

Imagine if you took The Fly, The Thing, Aliens, Eight Legged Freaks and that cockroach scene from A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 and put them into a blood-filled blender and you get the idea of what to expect from the wickedly fun Stung.

Taking place in a stately home during a rather posh dinner party to remember a family’s dead father, a group of party-goers and the duo providing the catering are given the shock of their lives when they are attacked by killer wasps. But matters turn to worse when the stings from these wasps turn their victims into giant versions of these killer wasps, »

Monsters: Dark Continent Blu-ray Review

25 August 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Tom Green

Starring: Johnny Harris, Sam Keeley, Joe DempsieNicholas PinnockSofia Boutella

Certificate: 15

Special Features: The Dog Fight – VFX Breakdown / Evolving the Monsters / Filming on Location

Gareth Edwards‘ 2010 film Monsters is seen by many as one of the most original and innovative movies of this century. Edwards’ managed to craft a thought-provoking sci-fi monster movie on a shoe-string budget. Rather than other films that dealt with invading aliens, this one was devoid of massive set pieces and the White House being blown up. Instead the film was much more focussed on the humans of the story, Andrew and Sam, as they made their way through the infected zone and embarked on a romance along the way.

Now four years later we have a sequel to Edwards’ classic. Edwards himself has given up the director’s chair in favour of Godzilla and Star Wars: Rogue One, he »

Sigourney Weaver's Alien comeback is apparently being delayed by Prometheus 2

19 August 2015 3:29 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sigourney Weaver's much-anticipated and explosive return to the Alien franchise may be delayed until as late as 2018.

20th Century Fox are still hopeful of Alien 5 from director Neill Blomkamp, but it may have to wait until after the release of Ridley Scott's Prometheus 2, according to Bloody Disgusting.

Inside sources have claimed that Blomkamp is working on the script but Scott has "insisted" that Prometheus 2 gets made first. Because that's clearly what everyone wants.

Prometheus 2 is expected to begin production in 2016, but this has yet to be confirmed.

However, this delay means that Sigourney Weaver should be more available after completing work on James Cameron's Avatar sequels. Blomkamp will most likely begin shooting Alien 5 in 2017, with a release the following year.

Meanwhile, Aliens actor Michael Biehn told fans at the Sheffield Film and Comic Con event that he has been chatting to Blomkamp about returning as Corporal Hicks, »

93 movie remakes and reboots currently in the works

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...


One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

Prometheus 2 reportedly holding up Alien 5

18 August 2015 10:16 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new report suggests that Ridley Scott wants Prometheus 2 to be made before Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5...

20th Century Fox has a pair of new movies on the way, set within the walls of the Alien franchise. Chappie and District 9 director Neill Blomkamp has been working on a new Alien film, reportedly set after the events of James Cameron's Aliens. Sigourney Weaver is back involved (and potentially Michael Biehn too), and Blomkamp has been teasing artwork online across the year.

Yet Alien 5 may have to wait, for it looks as if the follow-up to Ridley Scott's Prometheus is ahead of it in the queue. Scott is producing the films, and according to Bloody Disgusting, he wants Prometheus 2 to be first up. That's potentially set to shoot at the start of 2016, with a 2017 release date now likely. As such, Blomkamp's Alien 5 may find itself waiting another year to get going. »

Neill Blomkamp's Alien Movie May Get Bumped By This Sci-Fi Sequel

18 August 2015 1:43 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Alien timeline has grown muddy over the years, and from what we have been hearing, there will be a few more twists and turns before the picture becomes more clear.   Currently, there are two Alien-inspired projects in different stages of development: Prometheus 2, which Ridley Scott still hopes to direct; and Neill Blomkamp.s Alien film, which some suggest will ignore parts three and four and build off of James Cameron.s Aliens. Only now, Bloody-Disgusting is quoting a source as saying Scott is demanding that Blomkamp pump the brakes on his Alien 5 until After the Alien director has gone into pre-production on Prometheus 2? Why? No concrete reason was given, though there were two scenarios that seemed to map out where both projects are at the moment. B-d says that the production delay would give Neill Blomkamp more time to fully develop the screenplay that he.s »

Rumor: Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus 2' Is Delaying Neill Blomkamp's 'Alien' Movie

18 August 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this year, fans were both excited and warily confused when it was announced that Neill Blomkamp would be directing a new entry in the "Alien" series. His movie proposes bringing back Sigourney Weaver, but would ignore everything after James Cameron's "Aliens" from 1986 and act as a "genetic sibling" to that film and its 1979 predecessor. Okay, cool, but what about Ridley Scott's "Prometheus 2"?  Reports earlier this month suggested that he would start shooting that film in January 2016, and according to the latest rumors, whatever Scott is planning will hold up Blomkamp's picture. According to Bloody Disgusting, 20th Century Fox is following Scott's request on the order in which the movies will hit the big screen. “ 'Alien 5' is still very much in the works, as Fox remains hot on the idea,” their souce said. “Blomkamp continues to work on the script (only an outline existed previously) and »

Is "Prometheus 2" Delaying "Alien 5"?

18 August 2015 2:48 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Looks like the Neill Blomkamp-directed direct sequel to "Aliens" could be on hold for a short while according to a new report from Bloody Disgusting.

Their sources suggest that though Fox is still keen on the project, it's said to be on hold until after Ridley Scott gets into production on his proposed "Prometheus" sequel:

"Alien 5 is still very much in the works, as Fox remains hot on the idea. Blomkamp continues to work on the script (only an outline existed previously) and refine the tale he is telling. Ridley Scott is still producing, but has insisted on Prometheus 2 being made first."

Blomkamp will continue to slowly prep the next "Alien" while Scott shoots the "Prometheus" follow-up early next year.

There may be an upside to the delay of Blomkamp's project - it not only allows for more development time, it also lets him easier resolve any potential »

Development On Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 Slows Down For Prometheus 2

17 August 2015 3:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Progress on Neill Blomkamp’s touted Alien 5 sequel has slowed down since its official announcement earlier this year. And according to a report from Bloody Disgusting, it’s a result of Fox’s other Alien-related movie: Prometheus 2. While the studio is apparently still enthusiastic to relaunch the franchise, the site’s intel says Fox is “being forced to hold off” until Ridley Scott begins production on the Prometheus sequel:

Alien 5 is still very much in the works, as Fox remains hot on the idea,” our regular tipster tells us. “Blomkamp continues to work on the script (only an outline existed previously) and refine the tale he is telling. Ridley Scott is still producing, but has insisted on Prometheus 2 being made first.”

This delay on Alien 5 bears a silver lining. The extended development process will allow for Blomkamp to further work out kinks in the script and figure »

13 Best Horror Movie Scream Queens of All Time

13 August 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Calling somebody a Scream Queen is something of a misnomer. This point is brought up because an actress can be called that and not actually scream in a film. It truly comes down to how she distinguishes herself in a given role. It's not about how much she exercises her vocal talents. It's more about how many squeals she can illicit from the audience.

Some Scream Queens do, in fact, scream very well. Others do things in a horror movie to make people scream. It all comes down to the kind of scary movie that it is. A film like Scream is filled with people hollering at the top of their lungs, hence the title. A movie like It Follows is not. Yet, they are both very scary horror movies.

However, the Scream Queen resides on a certain block in pop culture. Usually, they are inordinately attractive. However, this is »

A brief history of cinema practical effects, in 10 films

12 August 2015 3:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From George Melies through to Peter Jackson and Jj Abrams' Star Wars film, the rise, fall and rise of practical effects explored...

From the very earliest days of cinema, practical effects have been the big draw for audiences. The very first films may have wowed the crowds with images of trains pulling into a station, but it was the fantastical made real that fired the imaginations of millions, and led to film as we know it - narrative flights of fancy which have entertained and made us gasp for well over 100 years. But the last 25 years have seen practical effects fall by the wayside.

Digital effects created in a computer took over, and allowed filmmakers to dream even bigger. But practical effects are beginning to make a comeback. Some of this is due to audiences feeling the CG burnout; no longer quite believing what they’re seeing, resulting in »

Lance Henriksen: A Survivor’s Tale

A seminal event happened to actor Lance Henriksen in his late teens that serves as the perfect metaphor for his life: Henriksen was working at a rural New Mexico gas station, and was taken in by the couple who owned it. They had a teenage daughter a couple years his junior. One day, figuring Lance and his daughter were getting a bit too chummy; the man drove Henriksen out to the middle of the desert. “All winter long, the frost has been pushing up these beautiful amethyst stones,” the man explained. “I’ll drop you off and you can collect them, then come back and sell them for a lot of money.” Henriksen stayed half the night, and then started to succumb to the desert’s freezing temperatures. “I dug a hole and buried myself up to my chest, with a fire in front of me. »
