'Safe Neighborhood' Is the Badass Babysitter Movie You've Been Waiting For

26 September 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Safe Neighborhood is basically what would happen if Erin from You're Next had a sister who was a babysitter at the house from Funny Games. It's the kind of Christmas-set horror movie that contains the line, "Dude, you just Home Alone'd that guy!" That's all you really need to know about it.  Saying much more about Safe Neighborhood threatens to spoil the experience of watching it. That's the kind of dilemma you often encounter at a place like Fantastic Fest, which is filled with world premieres of movies that nobody knows anything about. The audience there is surrounded by hundreds of like-minded people all sitting in the dark about to see something that hasn't been tainted by trailers and posters and months of online speculation...

Top Five Movie Teen Tearaways

16 September 2016 5:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rebellious teens, trouble making pranksters – the kind that we try our very hardest to keep our own children away from, yet we love to watch their antics on our screens!

In Taika Waititi’s latest film, we follow a journey of a defiant young city boy, who finds himself on the run in the wild New Zealand bush, with his cantankerous foster uncle.

In celebration of the release of the hilarious Hunt For The Wilderpeople in UK cinemas September 16th, we take a look at some of our favourite on-screen tearaways.

Ricky Baker – Hunt For The Wilderpeople (2016)

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Described by his social services worker as “a really bad egg” — breaking stuff, stealing stuff, hitting stuff, and setting stuff on fire are among the many sins he’s committed, Hunt For The Wilderpeople sees “bad egg” Ricky Baker sent to live with foster aunt and uncle in a remote farm. »

10 Movie Sequels That Are Borderline Remakes

13 September 2016 7:03 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Over the years, sequels have gotten a bad rap for representing lack of originality in film making. These are some examples of such films that didn't exactly exude creativity. 

Coming up with ideas for movies is hard. Coming up with ideas for sequels can be even more challenging. That's why so many of them rely on what has been done before. As an example of this phenomenon, here are ten films that are boarderline remakes:

The Gimmick Films: There are many movies out there that relied on a gimmick in order to fill theater seats. For some of those films, the gimmick worked so well that the film was a hit. What does Hollywood do with its hits? Make sequels of course! And what does Hollywood do with sequels for a gimmick film? Use the same gimmick again (with just a few minor changes)! Why mess with success….right?

Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life Trailer Sells Young You Dreams

10 September 2016 8:46 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Based on the book by James Patterson and Chris Tebbetts, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life is the next in the line of films featuring kids taking control of their world.

Rafe (Griffin Gluck) is heading into middle school, and he finds himself in the world of Principal Dwight (Andy Daly), who runs a tight ship, and has an overabundance of rules. Rafe and his friends put together a plan to break every rule Principal Dwight has, but he has to keep his plans, and rule-breaking, from his mom (Lauren Graham).

While this one looks like a lot of fun for younger audiences, its success probably rests on Daly’s shoulders, and he’s a great choice for the role. The “bad guy” in such a film can easily go too cartoony, and though Daly could probably aim for that if he wanted to, his work on things »

8 September 2016 10:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With just under a month to go until its Us release, a new poster and trailer have arrived online for the comedy Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life.

Rafe has an epic imagination…and a slight problem with authority. Both collide when he transfers to an oppressive, rule-crazy middle school. Drowning in do’s and don’ts, Rafe and his scheming best friend Leo hatch a plan to break every rule in the school’s Code of Conduct. It’s Ferris Bueller meets Home Alone as their battle with Principal Dwight explodes into chaos both real and imagined. But Dwight displays his own fiendish creativity, »

Shia Labeouf Opens Up About His Early Work: 'I Don't Like the Movies I Made with Spielberg'

6 September 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As a young actor, landing a role in a Steven Spielberg movie was a dream come true for Shia Labeouf. "I grew up with this idea, if you got to Spielberg, that's where it is," Labeouf revealed in a recent interview with Variety. "I'm not talking about fame, and I'm not talking about money," adds the actor, who told the magazine he originally wanted roles like Macaulay Culkin's in the Home Alone movies. Unfortunately, his experience working with the legendary director did not live up to his expectations. "You get there, and you realize you're not meeting the Spielberg you dream of, »

Tiff 2016: 13 Movies We Can’t Wait To See At The Festival

6 September 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Toronto International Film Festival kicks off this week, and with it, the rest of a very busy fall festival season. In preparation for the Canadian festival, we’ll be rolling out a series of previews to point you in the direction of all the movies you have to see (or at least, all the movies you have to start anticipating right now). Next up, a batch of new features we’ve yet to see…and can’t wait to check out in the coming days.

The Promise

Oscar-winning director Terry George has been Mia from the big screen since 2011’s “Stand Off” (a little-seen Brendan Fraser vehicle that’s hardly worth mentioning) and the awards conversation since 2004’s “Hotel Rwanda” (though his subsequent film, the 2007 Mark Ruffalo-starring “Reservation Road” got a little love), but he seems poised to be back in a big way, thanks to a sweeping »

How Shia Labeouf Stopped Drinking and Found the Career He Wanted

6 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A photo shoot with Shia Labeouf is a live-wire experience. With his curly locks slicked back, in Nikes and tattered pants, the 30-year-old actor refuses hair-and-makeup, as he blasts songs on his iPhone, singing along to Nina Simone’s “If You Pray Right (Heaven Belongs to You).” He’s friendly, but firm about what he won’t do, and he bristles when a Variety photographer suggests that he step inside an ancient-looking wine cellar. “No,” Labeouf says, pointing to the bottles of alcohol. “That sh-t almost f–ked up my life.”

Over the last five years, Labeouf has been embroiled in a bizarre off-screen drama of his own making — one that nearly derailed his career. He’s been dogged by several alcohol-related arrests, a public firing from the 2013 Broadway play “Orphans,” and even accusations of plagiarism surrounding a short film he directed that same year. But the biggest scandal came in 2014: Drunk on whiskey, »

Ansel Elgort Describes the Impact ‘Fault in Our Stars’ Had on His Career: ‘I Got Lucky’

16 August 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 2013 remake of “Carrie” marked a number of firsts for Ansel Elgort. It was his movie debut, after having survived seven auditions to play Chloë Grace Moretz’s unlucky prom date. “They said they wanted someone like Alex Pettyfer for the role,” he says. “Somehow I ended up getting it.”

Mark Williams & Sara Hirakawa for Variety

The Toronto shoot was the first time Elgort lived away from home, an experience that resembled college. “They gave me a little apartment. I got to go grocery shopping myself.” And he learned the secret language of a movie set. “People talking about craft, I thought they were talking about mac and cheese,” he says. “I didn’t know any of the terms.”

Now 22, Elgort could graduate with a diploma in movie stardom. In the last three years, he has appeared in a studio franchise (“Divergent”) and the drama “Men, Women & Children,” directed by Jason Reitman. »

Young Hollywood: Today’s Stars Have More Options, But Less Privacy

16 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On his first trip to New York three years ago, Vine star Cameron Dallas learned an important lesson: It’s never a good idea to invite your Twitter followers into your hotel room. It was a cold night, and two of his social-media-savvy groupies — twin girls — had been sending him messages on Twitter saying they were camped on the sidewalk outside. Dallas, 18 at the time, gave them his floor number and told them to come up. But after taking selfies in the hall, the twins stormed his room.

“They were like, ‘Can we watch you sleep?’ ” recalls Dallas. “I was stunned.” He finally had to physically drag them back into the hall. “They were grabbing onto the doors,” he says. “I really had to pull.”

To a degree, today’s new generation of young stars — whether discovered on the big screen or on YouTube — faces the same challenges that Jodie Foster, Anne Hathaway »

Suicide Squad Brings Out the Biggest and the Definitely the Baddest Supervillains, Including Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto

4 August 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Arriving a mere five months after Batman v Superman, a DC Comics epic as vaultingly joylss as a memorial chapel in Valhalla, Suicide Squad at least has some rumbling, crunchy kick - and, amid a sprawling, grungy cast, a terrific Margot Robbie. To begin with: Henry Cavill's Superman is still dead, or at any rate in no mood to be seen soaring through the air, letting sunbeams and shadow dapple and dance in and out of his magnificently creviced chin. His absence, which I suspect is more petulance than anything, leaves the country vulnerable to terrorists, illegal immigrants and »
