29 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Just when you thought it was safe to travel to New England, Rock and Shock announces Tara Reid is among the newest crop of guests attending the 11th annual event. We all know wherever Tara goes, a sharknado can't be far behind.

In anticipation for the October 17-19 event in Worcester, Ma, Rock and Shock organizers have been busy over the past couple of weeks announcing the guest list a few names at a time in true cliffhanger fashion, keeping fans of the event glued to social media to catch the next name.

In addition to Reid, Rock and Shock has announced a slew of other guests, including festival favorites Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, and William Forsythe. Also, Andrew Divoff, Tom Savini, Lynn Lowry, John Russo, Kristina Klebe, Justin Beahm, and Jack Bennett have been added as well.

'Big Hero 6' may turn out to be one of the year's biggest unexpected hits

28 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Early Wednesday morning, John Lasseter stood in front of a small group of journalists in a theater in the animation building on the Disney lot to introduce a presentation about November's new animated release, "Big Hero 6," and it felt to me, after over a decade of attending events where Lasseter has spoken, like a bit of a victory lap. And why not? Since "Bolt," Disney Feature Animation has been slowly but surely rebuilding what was a tarnished brand into something that is every bit as strong as the strongest moments from the "Mermaid" through "Lion King" era. "Frozen" was a global smash hit, and more than that, it managed that elusive cultural penetration where it goes beyond being successful and simply becomes omnipresent. "Frozen" was everywhere. Everyone knew what it was. Considering how dark things were for the studio before it was re-organized from within, it's amazing to see »

Natty’s Five Horror Badasses

16 August 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Nothing gets our attention in a horror film quite like a badass. Of course, we often find ourselves rooting for the bad guy (or girl), the random hordes of zombies, or weird objects. (Or is that just me when I watch the Evil Bong movies?) Either way, we can all agree that we love a good badass. They bleed rebellion, fight for their lives, and can easily make a good film into a great one, so…this one is for the bad asses!!!

 

5.) Erin- You’Re Next

What makes Erin so special in the ass-kicking department, is her ability to instantly turn on her inner badass as soon as people start getting brutally murdered in her presence. As soon as the first person around her gets killed, she is all over it. Her badass instincts kick in to reveal that she is in fact quite amazing when it comes to self-defense, »

Review: Ya-adaptation 'The Giver' is both ridiculous and morally suspect

14 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I hardly know where to start. So far this year, "Winter's Tale" remains the gold standard for pure unmitigated batshit hubris, and it's the scope of the folly that impresses me most. But if we're ranking films by how dopey they are, then "The Giver" may actually be a contender for some special honors this year. It is a firm belief of mine that you do not need to read a book in order to review a movie. I've never read Lois Lowry's novel, which is evidently fairly well-liked. Originally published in 1993, the book has been controversial, and it's also been enormously popular. In reading about it tonight, one thing becomes clear: the dumbest idea in this very dumb movie appears to be an invention of the film. We'll get into that later, but first, the broad strokes. The film opens with a vague title about the end of the world, »

Marvel Is Moving Forward With An Inhumans Film

12 August 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just a few days ago, Guardians of the Galaxy actor Vin Diesel teased fans (again) about The Inhumans, a film that’s been rumored to come down Marvel’s pipeline for quite some time. Now, it seems that the studio is finally moving forward with the project, which already has a script from Amber Lake scribe Joe Robert Cole. The next step is to take the script and find a filmmaker to bring the cosmic superhuman team to life.

For those unfamiliar with the characters, the Inhumans were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1975. Their history is filled with some confusing cosmic mumbo jumbo, but the basic idea is that they’re an advanced race of humans, who were genetically created by the Kree alien race millions of years ago. The Kree succeeded in creating a strain of humanity with extraordinary abilities, but abandoned their experiment due to »

Josh Brolin on Playing Thanos, Battling Iron Man, "Death," and More

8 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Josh Brolin is perfect casting for Thanos, and I'm so happy that Marvel was able to wrangle him into their cinematic universe. It didn't take much convincing, though. In a recent interview with IGN the actor spoke about playing Thanos and how he got the part. He also talked about story, "Death," and taking on Iron Man.

When asked what attracted him to the villain, he said,

"First and foremost, I have a really good friend who I've known for years who's the co-president of Marvel, Louis D'Esposito. I knew Louis as a first Ad, and he's the one who initially called me, and then [producer] Jeremy Latcham. Then I talked to Kevin Feige, ultimately. But there's something about them that's so insular and so geeky and so real. I loved it -- because I've turned down a lot of those types of movies. Not Marvel, but I've turned down a »

Universal’s Scott Bernstein Leaves Studio to Produce ‘Ride Along 2′

25 July 2014 6:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Veteran production exec Scott Bernstein is leaving Universal to become an independent producer on a trio of studio projects.

Bernstein will be working as a producer on the Universal movies “Mama 2,” “Ride Along 2″ and “Straight Outta Compton.” He joined the studio in 2004 and has been exec VP of production for the studio since late 2009.

Bernstein oversaw production on “Ride Along,” starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, which  became the highest-grossing film ever released in January at $134 million and won the box office for three weeks in a row.

Ride Along 2″ has already been dated for Jan. 15, 2016.

He also oversaw production on Guillermo del Toro’s “Mama,” which grossed more than $147 million worldwide.

Bernstein also worked on Melissa McCarthy’s “Identity Thief,” “The Break-Up,” “Role Models” and “Hellboy 2: The Golden Army.” He’s been developing a reboot of “Battlestar Galactica”; attached Jj Abrams and Bad Robot to the »

The Rock: Always The Rocksmaid, Never The Rocksgroom

22 July 2014 7:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This Friday will see the release of The Rock’s (None of this Dwayne Johnson nonsense, he’s The Rock) newest action tentpole Hercules, with him playing the historic hero. You’ve probably already made up your mind if you’re going to see this film or not, you’re not anxiously waiting on the fence. You probably haven’t given a second thought to Hercules. But I have, and for the first time in a long time, I’m worried about The Rock.

When you really stop to think about it, The Rock has built a career becoming one of the most unlikely box office superstars. In 2013 Forbes named him the highest grossing actor of the year with his films that year bringing in $1.3 billion. But I say box office superstar with a caveat: He only smashes numbers when he’s part of an ensemble. Put the guy in »

The Dusty VHS Corner: Wrestlers Body Slamming Cinema

20 July 2014 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe digs deep into The Dusty VHS Corner for a trio of straight to video actioners featuring some of the biggest stars of the squared circle…

During the 80’s when the WWE was developing into the larger than life, sometimes cartoony drama that introduced the world to things like Hulkamania and story arcs straight out of soaps, to be one of the top wrestlers you needed presence, personality and showmanship. There were some strong personalities in the wrestling arena, and the immense popularity of Vince McMahon’s entertainment machine seemed to suggest that for a select few, the transition from wrestler to acting superstar could be an easy, and potentially lucrative one.

Long before Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson broke into movies and became the big box-office draw that he is today, a host of grapplers in years gone by have attempted the same, without hitting those heights. Arguably the »

2014's most influential director: John Carpenter?

16 July 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

John Carpenter was once among Hollywood’s most prolific filmmakers. But the man who brought us such genre classics as Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 has only made one movie in the past 13 years—2010’s psychological thriller The Ward—and hasn’t troubled the box office in a big way since 1998’s James Woods-starring Vampires. (And Carpenter, 66, doesn’t sound like he’s in any rush to get back behind the camera: “I worked really hard for more years than I’d like to count, but now I can pick and choose things, »

Interview: Zach Gilford on the World in ‘The Purge: Anarchy’

15 July 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Zach Gilford is a familiar face to fans of the TV series “Friday Night Lights,” where he portrayed Matt Saracen. The actor grew up around Chicago in Evanston, Ill., and has risen through the ranks of acting in his new home of Los Angeles. He currently is featured in the sequel film, “The Purge: Anarchy.”

The Purge: Anarchy” takes up the premise of the first film, which presupposes a near future America in which laws are suspended for one night a year, allowing all aggressions, crimes and firearms to be practiced with abandon. Zach Gilford portrays Shane, who is part of a couple – his real-life wife Kiele Sanchez is Liz, his other half – that are accidentally thrust into the Purge night with no protection, and hooks up with a armed vigilante named Leo (Frank Grillo). The sequel ups the ante of the first film, with more social commentary and fire power. »

Film Review: Dull Soap Opera in ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’

10 July 2014 9:55 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes” just goes to show you can have the most expensive and best looking visual effects money can buy, but it doesn’t mean a damn thing if you haven’t got a good tale to tell.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

The apes themselves, and Caesar in particular, remain technical wonders, but rarely has something so lifelike been in the service of a blockbuster so utterly lifeless. This long, slow moving, self-important, unrelentingly dark and depressive picture is more butt-buster than blockbuster. Those looking for a good popcorn movie about talking apes are in for a monkey melodrama instead. It treats the family tensions inside the ape clan like Shakespeare, but it’s more like a simian soap opera that could have been called “All My Chimps,” or perhaps “The Apes Of Our Lives.”

Picking up 10 years after the events of the first movie, the human »
