Watch: Meet the Man Who Writes All Your Favorite Movie Novelizations

30 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

It’s controversial opinion time. If you want ham and cheese, there’s Anthony Hopkins’ Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs. If you want a quietly menacing (and believable) depiction of a cannibalistic serial killer, there’s Brian Cox’s Hannibal Lecter in Manhunter. With his sonorous voice, gleaming wit and Scottish brogue, the versatile actor has has made his mark in a number of films, from popcorn flicks (X2: X-Men United) to Oscar winners (Braveheart). In this Funny or Die skit, Cox plays esteemed author William St. Bromms, who teaches a master class on how to write the perfect novelization of a film. He recites excerpts from some of his greatest novelizations to inspire his students, which also leaves us in hysterics. “Indiana Jones...

“Annie Hall”: The Top 25 (Best Picture)

28 July 2014 6:09 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

All good things must come to an end at some point. Yes folks, this is the final installment of this series of mine, and as such, it’s (hopefully) a bit of a doozy…the Best Picture field. Without a doubt, this is the big one, so it’s the one where the list will be the most important and I hope interesting to look at as well. Obviously, I could go on and on in preparation right now, waxing poetic and teasing, but at this point I know how the game works here for everyone. You all just want to see the lists that I do anyhow, so I have no problem obliging you good people there in that particular regard one more time. All you have to do is just be patient over the next paragraph or so and you’ll get the goods front and center for your reading pleasure… »

'Hannibal' creator Bryan Fuller: Expect 'mayhem' in season 3

25 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

As creator Bryan Fuller puts it, the last season of Hannibal “ended with everybody bleeding, and Hannibal dropping the mic and walking out,” but the next season is about to get even more intense. At EW’s Comic-Con hideout, Fuller offered some hints about the next season, including clues as to how the series will incorporate Hannibal and Dr. Du Maurier back to the rest of the characters, and talked about the various Alien collectibles he’d like to pick up in San Diego. The big prize? Sigourney Weaver, who Fuller admitted he’d love to sign for a spot on the show. »

Abrams will executive produce alongside veteran producer Jerry Weintraub and Bad Robot's Bryan Burk. Person of Interest's

Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood and James Marsden linked to new Westworld TV project

22 July 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having made such an impression on cinema back in 1973, Michael Crichton’s Westworld was surely due for the reboot/remake/refresh treatment back on the big screen. However, no-one has really come close to making a new version into a reality. Then, last year, HBO announced that J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: Episode VII, Star Trek) and Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Person of Interest) had signed on to produce a pilot/movie for the cable network, with Nolan writing and directing.

Now, it seems that the network has zoned in on some of the talent they want to star in the project. Film Divider has report that offers have been made to Evan Rachel Wood (The Ides of March), James Marsden (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) and Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs) to come aboard the project.

The concept, says the site, “will be similar—set in a futuristic, »

Diane Keaton: The Top 25 (Best Actress)

It’s almost over folks. Yes, this penultimate time around I’ll be tackling one of the very biggest of the big eight categories, one of the only two left. This one is arguably the second or third biggest of them all…it’s the Best Actress field. This is really about as prestigious a category as there is ladies and gentlemen, give or take how you stack Picture/Director/Actor. I could go on and on in preparation right now, waxing poetic, but at this point I know how the game works here for everyone. You all mostly just want to see the lists that I do anyhow, so I have no problem obliging you good people there in that particular regard once again.

Of Age and Monsters

5 July 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It was July 4th 1985. While the annual Independence Day block party raged, full of worthy distractions for a young lad, I was more concerned with what the older kids were doing, the gaggle of cousins and my brother, to old and cool to be seen in the daylight. I found them crowded on and around my aunt and uncle’s sofa in the darkened living room. Their eyes wide and unblinking in concentration on the television screen.

As the film churned with the muted pulse of the DJ thumping from outside I soon came face to face with the monster that would haunt my dreams and symbolize all of my fears and insecurities throughout my developmental years and deep into my 20’s.

The movie was A Nightmare on Elm St. and like most kids at that age, I discovered within it something primal that reached out from the dark and touched me. »

Eiff 2014: ‘Let Us Prey’ Review

4 July 2014 3:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Liam Cunningham ,Pollyanna McIntosh, Sophie Stephanie Farmer, Niall Greig Fulton | Written by David Cairns, Fiona Watson | Directed by Brian O’Malley

Review by Andrew McArthur

Despite a promising opening and some interesting thematic concepts, Scottish horror Let Us Prey quickly goes off the rails veering into sloppy bog-standard genre territory.

Brian O’Malley’s feature sees the workings of a small Inveree police station flipped upside down when a mysterious figure (Liam Cunningham) arrives bringing madness and bloodshed with him.

The rich Gothic opening sees the a figure in a long cloak standing beside roaring waves and masses of shrieking crows. Initially reminiscent of Hitchcock’s The Birds, Let Us Prey is a film that wears its influences on its sleeve with hints of Assault on Precinct 13 and The Silence of the Lambs all suggested, yet sadly this is a film that pales in comparison to these features. »

Entertainment Geekly: Why 'Hannibal' is the better version of 'True Detective' and 'Fargo'

26 June 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

To clarify the headline above: I liked True Detective and Fargo. They were well-acted, well-shot, well-dialogued. HBO’s mystery melodrama and FX’s Coen remix had different tones and different site-specific atmospheres–moody nihilism vs. screwball nihilism, sunbaked desolation vs. snowcaked void, Southern Swamp Gothic vs. Frozen Norman Rockwell–but if you watched them live when they aired, then you knitted together an 18-episode viewing experience representing a snapshot of Why TV Drama Is Interesting Now. »

10 Star Trek Guest Stars Who Played Iconic Movie Characters

21 June 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

For many actors, playing even just a small role in an illustrious franchise such as Star Trek is a highlight of their career. Idolised celebrities including Tom Morello and Seth MacFarlane, and even King Abdullah bin al-Hussein of Jordan consider their briefest of appearances to be among their happiest of moments.

Whilst it is fair to say that anyone who has graced Star Trek with their presence would describe it as a proud achievement, there are also those from whom it was just one part in a distinguished career. Whether they had yet to make it when they made their appearance, or were chosen because of their renowned career, there are those with resumes so impressive that even Star Trek can be overshadowed.

These include David Warner, for whom even multiple appearances sit nicely alongside other cult roles in films such as The Omen, and Tron. Charles Napier »

Eye on Emmy: Hannibal's Hugh Dancy on Will and Lecter's 'True Love,' the Possible Meaning of the Stag's Death

20 June 2014 2:36 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Hugh Dancy has always been “an adventurous, not to say foolhardy, eater,” and his appetite has stayed strong and steady despite continued exposure to stunningly beautiful, undeniably horrifying cannibalistic dinner scenes on NBC’s Hannibal. “Nothing’s changed!” he says, with a hearty laugh.

The same cannot be said, however, for Dancy’s character — the addled FBI profiler Will Graham — over the course of Hannibal‘s critically lauded second season.

“The first half of the season, Will progressed to the point where he really embraced the part of him that was prepared to do something heinous,” Dancy says of his »

Review: Joy Ride 3: Road Kill!!

19 June 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

 

The third film in a series featuring Rusty Nail, a malicious and downright evil trucker getting his kicks by taking people who piss him off and giving them gruesome death scenes, Joy Ride 3 is no Citizen Kane, but instead, one hell of a silly and fun little splatter flick. Walking into the movie expecting something completely wonderful will leave viewers disappointing, but having expected yet another throw away straight to DVD/Bluray sequel to the 2001  studio film co-written by J.J. Abrams, it was a pleasant surprise to not only find a popcorn gorefest, but one that provides more than its fair share of laughs and one-liners.

From the opening scene, Joy Ride 3 makes it Well known what kind of film it is, beginning with a sex scene that is definitely one for the books and then resulting in pre-credit carnage that gives “crack kills” a brand new meaning. »

“The Social Network”: The Top 25 (Best Adapted Screenplay)

9 June 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Here we go again folks with another Top 25 article today. This time around I’ll be tackling one of the big eight categories in an effort not to save them all for last. Adapted Screenplay field. The category is one that usually has a big tie in with Best Picture, as you’ll below to some degree. Oscar tends to like their big glossy adaptations, but they do go for some offbeat things here and there in this particular category. I have a few specific titles I’ll be citing in detail later on in this piece, but I know how the game works here by now. You all mostly just want to see the lists I do anyhow, so I have no problem obliging you good folks there in that particular regard once again.

Check Out Chris Hemsworth In First Images From Michael Mann’s Cyber

4 June 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just when the wait for a 2015 jam-packed with tentpole blockbuster after tentpole blockbuster seemed like it couldn’t feel any longer, the first images of Michael Mann’s highly anticipated Cyber have hit the web.

The pictures, as seen below, show Chris Hemsworth and Holt McCallany in what seems to be a dockyard filled with shipping containers. It’s worth noting that the shots are vaguely reminiscent (in our minds anyway) of the classic conclusion to Mann’s Al Pacino/Robert De Niro epic Heat.

Not much is known about the director’s latest effort other than it centers on the Chinese and American forces co-operating to bring down the culprits of a large-scale computer hacking scheme. We’re not even sure about the title – a tweet from McCallany suggests it may be called Black Hat now. Regardless, we’re still really excited for the film. Such is the power »

Anna Review

3 June 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jorge Dorado’s Anna, previously known as Mindscape, has drawn unfavorable comparisons to Christopher Nolan’s Inception, due to the fact that both films involve a man peering inside the minds and memories of others to uncover long-hidden secrets. However, if you’re interested in checking out this thriller, the absolute best thing you could do for yourself would be to get that comparison out of your head. Anna is nowhere near as creative, original or exciting as that now-classic mind-bender. It’s not even on the same level. Instead, Anna is a much smaller-scale affair, content to deliver passable thrills and predictable twists while giving its two leads, Mark Strong and Taissa Farmiga, plenty of time to shine.

If that sounds like a critique, it is and it isn’t (cue Inception foghorn). Though Anna doesn’t bring much of anything to the table – and many will fault it for that, »
