News Nuggets: 10 tasty tidbits about the next blood-soaked season of 'Hannibal'

23 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The cast and producers of NBC's "Hannibal" offer their fans new tasty tidbits about the "beautiful, macabre psychological thriller." Appearing at New York's PaleyFest, showrunner Bryan Fuller and stars Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, and Laurence Fishburne discuss the past and what is on the horizon for the third season. They say that "the emotional, blood-soaked" ending of last season was a "crucible" for everyone. Coming up, Hannibal's outfits might become even flashier while he is on the run, and there will not be as many tableaus for the next episodes. They are still pursuing the idea of bringing in Clarice Starling (played in "The Silence of the Lambs" by Oscar winner Jodie Foster). Entertainment Weekly -Break- Brad Pitt and his World War II soldiers in "Fury" take down "Gone Girl" at the box office this weekend. The debut brings in $23.5 million as it also tries to entrance awards voters. »

Tao Okamoto Joins Hannibal Season 3 As Lady Murasaki

18 October 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bryan Fuller has some exciting things planned for Hannibal‘s hotly-anticipated third season, which includes some intriguing new characters from Thomas Harris’ books. While the series has deviated greatly from the source material thus far, Fuller has taken it upon himself to draw inspiration and story beats from novel like Hannibal and The Silence of the Lambs at will, and is tackling the prequel novel Hannibal Rising next.

That, of course, comes with the inclusion of Lady Murasaki, Hannibal’s mysterious Japanese aunt. According to Deadline, Murasaki will be played by The Wolverine and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice actress Tao Okamoto. The site describes her role as follows:

“Okamoto will play the dark and mysterious Lady Murasaki, who possesses an alluring and classical beauty with a dark secret.”

Hannibal Lecter’s relationship with Lady Murasaki is incredibly complicated, darkly twisted and even romantic. Judging by the way Fuller »

Video Breakdown: Hannibal vs. Clarice in 'The Silence of the Lambs'

15 October 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've become a pretty big fan of Tony Zhou's "Every Frame a Painting" video series on Vimeo and YouTube, and although I'm not as big a fan of The Silence of the Lambs as many are, I found his most recent installment on the film quite informative. Entitled "Who Wins the Scenec", the video examines the first meeting between Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) and Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) in Jonathan Demme's 1991 thriller, which won 5 Academy Awards including a trophy for both actors mentioned above. In the video, Zhou examines how camera angles, framing, and point-of-view lay out the scene to help the viewer determine who ultimately wins this first standoff between the young FBI cadet and the seasoned serial killer. Both enter the scene with a primary goal in mind, but only one can be the true winner in the end. After watching this video, my thoughts immediately went »

Movie Review – Gutshot (2014)

13 October 2014 2:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gutshot (aka Gutshot Straight), 2014.

Directed by Justin Steele

Starring George Eads, AnnaLynne McCord, Steven Seagal, Vinnie Jonnes, Ted Levine,Stephen Lang, Tia Carrere and Fiona Dourif.

Synopsis:

A hard-up gambler gets in deep with the underworld when he takes up a bet from a wealthy gangster to pay off his loans.

Don’t be fooled by the poster art for Gutshot as this isn’t a Steven Seagal vehicle, despite his image being the most prominent. Neither is it a Vinnie Jones headliner, as his mug is also all over it, but both actors are part of an ensemble cast that includes Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs), George Eads (CSI: Crime Scene Investigtion), AnnaLynne McCord (Excision) and Stephen Lang (Tombstone) in a film that feels a little different in style for all involved, which isn’t a bad thing.

Jack (Eads) is a professional gambler who has run »

Gone Girl: 8 Easter Eggs & References You Might Have Missed

7 October 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Gone Girl is here and it’s pretty damn good. Turning a pulpy novel into something of real worth, just like Jonathan Demme did with The Silence Of The Lambs, David Fincher’s latest is so enthralling we can’t wait to return to the cinema and experience his mystery thriller all over again.

Fincher is renowned for his meticulous directorial style, with thirty-take scenes commonplace on his sets. With this level of obsession and control of his product what’s on screen is as close as possible to what the director envisioned. And that makes his movies a delight to go through and discover what subtle treats are hidden in there. More so than any of his previous films, Gone Girl boats a plethora of references to other movies, both from his own filmography and wider afield that make it a particular highlight for any film fan. »

Chucky vs. Annabelle and 5 Other Unconventional Movie Pairings We'd Like to See

6 October 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Imagine a movie team-up where Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Norman Bates from Psycho, Buffalo Bill from The Silence of the Lambs and Bloody Face from TV's American Horror Story were like an Expendables of horror. The interesting thing about that group would be that they're all characters based on real-life serial killer Ed Gein. So, call them the Edgeinables? Such an idea came to is in reading at the Hollywood Reporter that Child's Play franchise creator Don Mancini wants a movie teaming up Chucky with Annabelle, the doll whose new movie opened successfully over the weekend. The idea is funny becase both pint-sized characters are based on the same "true" story. Annabelle is directly linked to the paranormal investigators Ed and...

Breaking the Fourth Wall: A Supercut

6 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A lot of people see cinema as a way to capture reality. Quite frankly, I do not see it that way. It is an artificial medium, and everyone watching knows it. The capturing reality mindset is needed for some pictures, but it is not a hard and fast rule. I think filmmakers embracing film's artificiality can make for very interesting products. One of my favorite ways to highlight that is by directly breaking the fourth wall, a storytelling technique that addresses the audience in very a direct way. It can make them complicit in a nefarious plot. It can accuse them. It can bring them in on a joke. It is a very fun device to use, and, for the most part, it works when it's used. Below is a pretty fun supercut of breaking the fourth wall in movies. Here, though, breaking the fourth wall is translated as looking directly at the lens. »

Cinema's darkest and most unpredictable public service workers

6 October 2014 4:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The arrival of WolfCop inspires us to take a look back at horror cinema's most unpredictable janitors, doctors, dentists and more...

Can we necessarily trust the dentist who stands over us with a tiny drill in his hand? Isn't the guy who's come round to install our cable television service just a bit too friendly for comfort? And the cop outside in his squad car - isn't he just a little bit, I don't know, hairy?

Some of cinema's darkest, most unpredictable and downright interesting characters often have the most mundane jobs, from teachers to photo developers and taxi drivers to school janitors. It's characters like these we're saluting here - some of them villainous, others strangely likeable despite their dark activities, while others are simply misunderstood.

So here's our pick of the most terrifying public sector workers in horror cinema, inspired by the imminent release of WolfCop - director »

31 Days of Horror: ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ – 40 Years Later

1 October 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Directed by Tobe Hooper

Written by Kim Henkel and Tobe Hooper

1974, USA

When someone hears the title The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, they might just pass it off as just another inane slasher flick, but in fact Texas is much more; it’s a relentlessly agonizing, bleak masterpiece of horror cinema. Texas isn’t merely interested in scaring its audience; it’s an intelligent and visceral experience which examines the darker impulses found in people, a movie where unspeakably horrific acts take place mostly outside of the frame.

Shot on a tiny budget of $83,000, director Tobe Hooper’s stylish debut achieves maximum effect through a combination of Daniel Pearl’s appropriately gritty cinematography, shrieking sound design, and an unnerving concrète score that will ring in your ears long after the end credits role. The shaky, eerie and at times documentary-style camerawork, practical effects, and the age-old trick »

How 1991's The Addams Family nearly got derailed

26 September 2014 3:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Addams Family looked a seamless project to bring to the screen. But the film, starring Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston, was anything but.

When we talk about difficult film productions, the same names seem to come through. Apocalypse Now and The Deer Hunter, for instance, are productions with well-told stories of how those behind the scenes went to proverbial hell and back. In more recent times, most of us are more than familiar with the hell that those behind World War Z went through to get it to the screen.

What I though would be a bit different though is take a generally very successful film, and dig a bit deeper to see if there was a troubled story there. One where behind the scenes issues are rarely talked about. Given that I've come to this piece straight after writing about 1991's movies, here, I settled on The Addams Family. »

Don’t We Want ’70s-Style Adult Thrillers Like ‘A Walk Among The Tombstones’? A Chat With Scott Frank

23 September 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Everybody says, bring back those great, gritty 70s adult thrillers. Scott Frank makes one with Liam Neeson in A Walk Among The Tombstones, and not enough people show up to launch it into a franchise. With $13 million in ticket sales so far, it’s $5 million short of what it is needed to trigger more films based on the Matthew Scudder character from Lawrence Block’s mystery novels. I can sit here and wonder if the results would have been better had Universal opened it after Denzel Washington’s turn in The Equalizer this Friday, when appetites will be whetted  for challenging adult films and heroes without capes. Or I can point to the squeamishness of some critics who blasted Frank for faithfully adapting a novel about Scudder’s hunt for two serial killers preying on the girlfriends and daughters of drug dealers. It is hard to pretty that up, but one normally smart, »

New on Video: ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’

22 September 2014 9:21 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

Written by Kim Henkel and Tobe Hooper

Directed by Tobe Hooper

USA, 1974

Now a legendary horror film, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre as it seems to be called just as often (hereafter Tcsm either way), was at the time of its release a most unusual feature. Why the movie still resonates today though, why it still has such a strong cult following, and why it remains one of the genre’s greatest entries, is for many of the same reasons it was so groundbreaking in 1974. The Vietnam-era angst has since dissipated (or has perhaps been replaced by a new sort of battle fatigue) and the notion of a post-Night of the Living Dead horror film renaissance has certainly gone by the wayside, but Tcsm remains just as expressive and as masterfully effective it ever was.

Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb talks Daredevil and The Defenders

21 September 2014 5:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Marvel set to give us our first look at its Netflix series Daredevil at the New York Comic Con next month, Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb has taken a moment to discuss the upcoming show during an interview on Kfi Am 640 (via ComicBook), stating that fans wanting to know what they’re not doing with Daredevil need look no further than the 2003 feature film starring Ben Affleck.

“When we started talking to our actors and to our directors, this is with all due respect to the film, if you want to know what we’re not doing, go watch the movie. If you want to know what we’re doing, it’s very much steeped in the world of the comics, but it also has a life of its own and that’s really what television and our films really do is that we take the best… »
