Watch trailer for The Vicious Brothers’ ‘Extraterrestrial’

13 September 2014 7:03 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Grave Encounters directors The Vicious Brothers debut their new trailer for Extraterrestrial, which comes with the bold words “the definitive close encounter”. 2011’s Grave Encounters was some very cheesy fun, but Extraterrestrial looks like it is attempting to take itself a little more serious, or at that’s what the trailer seems to be selling. It has Scanners and Total Recall star Michael Ironside, which is a big plus. It does look like a combo of Fire in the Sky and last year’s Dark Skies, but Extraterrestrial might end up being a decent little film. The film hits theaters in limited release on November 21st.

Before I Go to Sleep Review

8 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Cinema has long held a fascination with memories, from the different ways they can be manipulated (Inception, Total Recall) to how crucial they can be in defining who we are (Memento, The Bourne Identity). Before I Go to Sleep slots into the latter grouping; As directed by Rowan Joffé it’s a well-performed and solidly engaging thriller, but it won’t be joining the distinguished pantheon the aforementioned films reside in any time soon.

Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by S.J. Watson Before I Go to Sleep focuses on Christine Lucas (Nicole Kidman), who wakes up with no memory of her existence beyond her early 20’s after she was involved in an accident. She is told this and more information about her life every morning by her weary husband Ben (Colin Firth, reuniting with his The Railway Man co-star). She is also called each day by Dr. »

Double Review: Deadly Eyes & Leviathan (Blu-ray)

6 September 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Scream Factory recently gifted us genre fans a double dose of creature feature terrors with their Blu-ray releases of the killer rat flick Deadly Eyes and George P. Cosmatos’ hugely underrated deep sea horror film Leviathan.  While both films aren’t necessarily well-known amongst more casual fans, it’s great to see Scream put such great effort into their presentations for each of these cult classics.

For those who haven’t seen it before, Deadly Eyes (or Rats)is a rather ridiculous (but wonderfully so) early ‘80s nature-run-amok story that plays up the concerns and dangers of modern urban society by way of roided-out killer rat infestations that have a penchant for human flesh. The film takes its premise very seriously, but it’s the use of Daschunds in rat costumes that has given Deadly Eyes something of an unintentional comedic spin, making for a rather uneven horror film.

Remembering 7 Films About Memory Loss

3 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

On the 5th September Before I Go To Sleep will jump from the pages of S.J. Watson’s novel to the big screen. The film tells the story of Chrissie (Nicole Kidman), who remembers nothing as a result of a traumatic accident. Each day she is forced to piece together and make sense of her life, only for it all to be forgotten when she awakens each morning. That is until one day, when terrifying truths emerge forcing her to question everyone around her.

The fragility of memory is a common theme used in various film plots. Thn previously covered a list of Top Ten Memory Loss Movies, in which we remember some much loved classics such as Memento and Total Recall. Not to repeat ourselves, we have decided to put together a list of forgotten films about forgotten memories. In celebration of Before I Go To Sleep we remember 7 forgotten amnesia/memory loss movies. »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

According to the press release we’ve just received, the qudience will also get the chance to purchase tickets for a one to one photo opportunity and a very select and private meet and greet session. Arnie will also take part in a black tie dinner event at The Grand Pavillion, Leeds.

“For once I won’t have a publicist saying, ‘Don’t ask him about his private life, don’t ask him how much money he makes, how much is in the bank,’ all that kind of stuff,” he said of the UK dates. “England really was the country that gave me the biggest break in my career. I »

Lionsgate Acquires Zombie Film ‘Maggie’, Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin

26 August 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Wade knows his daughter Maggie is succumbing to an infection that will inevitably turn her into a zombie, but he’s hoping his fervent love will keep her human for as long as possible.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Zombie Movie Maggie Acquired by Lionsgate for Early 2015 Release; Will Now Skip Tiff

26 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the more offbeat movies that was poised to premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival was Maggie, which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a father who struggles to come to terms with the fact that his daughter (Abigail Breslin) is slowly becoming a zombie.  I say “was” because Lionsgate announced today that it has acquired distribution rights to the film and, per THR, will be pulling it out of Tiff.  Instead of debuting at the festival, the studio has set a Maggie release date for early 2015, though a specific theatrical bow has not yet been determined.  It's a bit of an odd move to pull the film out of Tiff, and not exactly a great sign if Lionsgate wants to control the flow of reviews for the pic. The Black List script was penned by John Scott 3 and directed by Henry Hobson, with Joely Richardson taking on »

The Nostalgia Files: ‘Last Action Hero’ (1993)

26 August 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Last Action Hero

Written by Zak Penn, Adam Leff, Shane Black, and David Argott

Directed by John McTiernan

USA, 1993

The concept of a film within a film is an idea that provides for truly interesting cinema. Films that are self-referential, satiric, and make fun of their own genre are often hilarious, thought-provoking, and downright fun. 1993’s cult favorite Last Action Hero is an action-fantasy that pokes fun at the action film genre in more ways than one. It stars the incomparable blockbuster movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger who is playing himself. Last Action Hero pretty much has it all and if you are a fan of the Austrian star or just action cinema in general, then this is the perfect film for you.

The film focuses on Danny Madigan (Austin O’Brien), a 12-year-old troublemaker obsessed with movies, in particular those of action hero Jack Slater, a fictionalized version of Schwarzenegger. »

Tom Cruise’s Minority Report is Being Developed as a TV Show

22 August 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Remember 2002′s “Minority Report”? As I recall, it was a hit. Not a massive hit or anything (unless my memory is foggy, and that’s entirely possible), but a decent hit. But this was back in 2002. Back then, Cruise could do no wrong. Not so much these days, where his movies are 50-50 at the box office. Directed by Steven Spielberg, that movie starred Cruise as the head of a law enforcement unit called PreCrime, which used psychics to predict crimes, and arrested people before they actually committed those crimes. The movie was based on a Philip K. Dick story, and had links to “Total Recall,” also based on a Philip K. Dick story. (Dick, by the way, is also responsible for “Blade Runner.” So yeah, he’s pretty big when it comes to sci-fi.) TheWrap reports that Max Borenstein (“Godzilla”) has been tapped by Spielberg via his Amblin Entertainment »

10 Most Memorable Nude Scenes In PG-13 Movies

22 August 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

The history of the PG-13 rating is well-known by the majority of movie fans. In 1984, Gremlins and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom were both released with traditional PG ratings. Both became hits, but both became targets for criticism from parents who were surprised to see rather explicit scenes in both films (hearts being pulled out of chests, small creatures blowing up in microwaves, etc).

Parents and conservative folk alike demanded a new movie rating to keep up with the times. In response, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) concocted the PG-13, which “strongly cautioned” parents if they were considering allowing youngsters under the age of 13 to see a film bearing the new rating.

So, you would think that with this new rating that nudity on-screen would be reserved for Nc-17 and R-rated films right? Well, not exactly. Back in the early days of the rating, »

Minority Report TV series is being developed

21 August 2014 11:36 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Godzilla scribe Mac Borenstein is writing TV version of Minority Report for Amblin Television...

Barely a week goes by at Den Of Geek Towers where we aren’t reporting on another new film adaptation coming to the small screen. It has also become customary to link to this article on Fargo in such circumstances, to remind us all how well such projects can work.

The latest to be jumping on the bandwagon is Amblin Television, Steven Spielberg’s production company, who are now redeveloping Tom Cruise vehicle Minority Report for television.

They’ve got MTV’s Scream, HBO’s Westworld, NBC’s The Devil’s Advocate and the next series of Fargo to compete with in the race to find the next big cinema-to-telly ratings hit.

Working on the project will be Max Borenstein, best known for scripting Gareth EdwardsGodzilla - an interesting choice, with good form in mixing homage with new ideas. »

The birth, death and regeneration of the Universal Soldier movies

20 August 2014 4:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Universal Soldier began in 1992 before suffering from some tawdry sequels. Then John Hyams revived the franchise in spectacular fashion...

The Universal Soldier films are a strange case of life imitating art. Much like how series protagonist Luc Deveraux is killed in action then resurrected into something post-human, Universal was a pretty standard 90s action film which crashed and burned when it came to sequels, but became something unique and beautiful when it was reanimated for the straight to DVD market.

It’s a hushed secret among genre fans, but Universal Solder 3 and 4 (or possibly 5 and 6, it’s complicated) are some of the most remarkable action sci-fi films of the 21st century so far. Yes, really. I actually watched the series backwards when I first saw them, after being blown away by Universal Solder Day Of Reckoning and deciding to work my way back, and Roland Emmerich’s perfectly acceptable 1992 blockbuster »

10 Movie Jobs We All Wish We Could Have

12 August 2014 6:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

Wake up. Eat breakfast. Go to work. Come home. Eat dinner. Watch TV. Go to bed.

If this describes a typical day in your life, then you probably enjoy escaping the boredom of reality by diving into books, games and movies. One minute you’re making beans on toast and the next you’re fighting overwhelming odds to save the galaxy from destruction… but only in your head of course.

Whatever your occupation may be, we can guarantee that the jobs you see in the movies are better. Even careers that are boring in real life take on a shiny, desirable glow on the silver screen. It seems that every romantic comedy features at least one handsome successful architect who has women falling all over him and it’s hard watch a quirky ‘indie’ film without bumping into an independent woman who runs her own business/bakery/brothel. »
