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. With its Tiff world premiere right around the corner, the zombie drama Maggie has been picked up by Lionsgate and will now forego playing at the festival, looking to debut instead via an early 2015 theatrical release.

The news of Maggie not playing at Tiff comes from The Hollywood Reporter. Lionsgate now holds the film’s North American distribution rights. We have the official press release with full details below (a big thanks to Collider for the press release!).

“A Midwestern farmer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) stays by the side of his beloved teenage daughter (Abigail Breslin) even as she slowly turns into a cannibalistic zombie, in this audacious, genre-bending debut feature from director Henry Hobson.”

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. »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – August 11th 2014

11 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)

The good news is that now that all the singing and the farting around is done in Hobbiton and the story has kicked in good and proper, the majority of this second in Peter Jackson’s portrayal of a slim Tolkien story overblown to epic proportions is mostly action with a minimum of plot. It’s still got various story beats it has to hit of course and is very much a middle chapter, but this has a momentum which was really missing from An Unexpected Journey.

In this second Hobbit film you can start to see the stuff that was added in to pad out the two films into a trilogy with characters who do not appear in the books introduced and a weird elf/dwarf romance along with a more angsty and badass Legolas, strangely enough it doesn’t feel out-of-place.

Forget the summer, did 'Guardians of the Galaxy' just save the rest of 2014?

4 August 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's taken a few months, but moviegoers finally found another summer movie they adore. "Boyhood" has a very passionate fan base, but that awards-worthy player still isn't in enough theaters to come close to qualifying for nationwide release. No, America and some parts of the world have gone nuts for James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy," and with not a moment to spare. Frankly, this summer movie season has mostly been a box office dud from a studio perspective. That's somewhat perplexing considering the quality of films in May and June were surprisingly strong. "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "Neighbors," "22 Jump Street," "Maleficent," "The Fault in Our Stars," "Edge of Tomorrow" and "How to Train Your Dragon 2" guaranteed there was at least one good movie opening almost every weekend over the first six weeks of the summer. The box office results were mixed, however. "Days" was the biggest »

Films that'd get a fairer hearing if they weren't sequels

29 July 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some sequels are doomed to live in the shadow of the hits that triggered them. Here are a few examples...

Following up a successful movie with a sequel is a tough proposition for any writer or director, and it's often the case that such follow-ups fail to recreate the magic of their predecessors. But sometimes, sequels can offer a different yet entertaining experience of their own, and it's even possible that, if they didn't happen to share the same name as an earlier hit film, they might even have been better received.

This article's dedicated to a few of these kinds of films. They offer lots of excitement, comedy, jolts of terror and a smattering of great performances, and might have fared better with audiences and critics had they not been sequels. At the very least, they attempted to do something a little different than the films they followed. While other examples undeniably remain, »

Touring the Movies that Influenced 'The Matrix'

You could do something similar to what editor Robert Grigsby Wilson has done here taking a look at Lana and Andy Wachowski's The Matrix and pointing out all the moments in the film influenced by, or paying homage to, other films, but it is nonetheless fascinating to take such a trip through film and in this case several martial arts features, anime and even a speech from Philip K. Dick. I've included the list of films just below the video, give it a look and enjoy. 0:27 - Fist of Legend (1994) 0:38 - Tai-Chi Master (Twin Dragons) (1993) 0:44 - Fist of Legend (1994) 0:48 - Tai-Chi Master (Twin Dragons) (1993) 0:53 - Drunken Master (1978) 1:02 - Fist of Legend (1994) 1:09 - The Killer (1989) 1:19 - Fist of Legend (1994) 1:21 - Iron Monkey (1993) 1:31 - Once Upon A Time In China (1991) 1:36 - Fist of Legend (1994) 1:41 - Tai-Chi Master (Twin Dragons »

The Vampire Diaries Casts New Characters For Season Six

17 July 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Vampire Diaries has really cleaned house over the course of the last season and cut down to a core group of characters. With season six premiering this fall, the show will introduce several new characters as it attempts to do what executive producer Julie Plec calls an “organic reset.”

The CW has just announced that included in this new start will be Julie C. Chang (Days of Our Lives, Total Recall), who will play the quintessential girl next door, Ivy. Ivy is pegged as sweet and innocent on the surface, but with a wild side just waiting to come out. Her character will debut in the season premiere, and it’ll be interesting to see if she gets along with the other female characters who aren’t exactly known for playing well with others.

Along with Chang, The Vampire Diaries has also cast The Client List alum Marco James in a recurring role. »
