'Groundhog Day' again and again: 7 Hollywood time loops from 'Star Trek' to 'Primer'

19 July 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) It’s all "Groundhog Day’s" fault. The 1993 comedy hit, which stars Bill Murray as a snarky weatherman forced to re-live the same day over and over again until he becomes a better person, made the idea of a time loop a very popular narrative device for movies and television — and for good reason. There isn’t one person who hasn’t had a day they wish they could take a mulligan on. It’s a very relatable idea, and it’s easy to see why Hollywood keeps going back to the time-loop well. With "Edge of Tomorrow" becoming the latest member of the “Groundhog Day-ing It Club,” Spinoff looks back at some of the most memorable TV and movie do-overs. “Cause and Effect” ("Star Trek: The Next Generation") Actually, maybe we should blame this fifth season episode of Tng, which aired in 1992 — a year before "Groundhog Day. »

Morena Baccarin Will Lend Her Voice To Animated Horror Flick Malevolent

14 July 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Animated horror films are few and far between, but occasionally someone gets a great idea for one – see Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust - that makes us remember the genre can be more than just Alvin And the Chipmunks Meet whichever movie monster happens to need a paycheck at the time. It’s too early to say whether Malevolent is going to be one of those diamonds in the rough – but initial information about the pic is promising.

Today, we’ve learned that Homeland actress Morena Baccarin has signed on to lend her voice to the lead villain in the film. Malevolent centers on a “young woman (Dani Lennon) who must defeat her powerful, evil father in order to save herself and her siblings.” It was scripted by Jim Cirile and Tanya C. Klein (Liberator), and directed by Jason Axinn (Bite Me).

DVD Review – Haunter (2013)

14 July 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Haunter, 2013.

Directed by Vincenzo Natali.

Starring Abigail Breslin, Sarah Manninen, David Hewlett, Stephen McHattie, Peter DaCunha, Michelle Nolden, Eleanor Zichy and Peter Outerbridge.

Synopsis:

The ghost of a teenager who died years ago reaches out to the land of the living in order to save someone from suffering her same fate.

In a genre slightly starved of creativity, Haunter deserves kudos for at the very least trying something new and original. With it’s Groundhog Day/Edge of Tomorrow-style narrative, director Vincenzo Natali (Splice) has certainly made a decent little thriller that for the first half at least does a respectable job despite it’s obvious budgetary constraints (the CGI fog is pretty bad), with some decent camerawork and a few genuine jumps. In that first thirty minutes, the film firmly puts you in guessing mode: why is Lisa in a time loop? Is she being punished? Is Lisa »

‘Haunter’ DVD Review

Stars: Abigail BreslinStephen McHattie, Peter Outerbridge, Michelle Nolden, Peter DaCunha, Samantha Weinstein, Eleanor Zichy, David Hewlett, Sarah Manninen | Written by Brian King, Matthew Brian King | Directed by Vincenzo Natali

Often it feels like there are not enough ghost stories based horror films these days, but then when you think about it we’ve had Insidious, Sinister and The Conjuring just to name a few.  I’m not sure why I feel there needs to be more but this could be a sign that things need to be shaken up a bit.  Saying that though I’ll be reviewing Soulmate soon which is a good old-fashioned ghost story that gets so much right, so most importantly these films just need to be good.  Haunter looks to add a little something different to the mix with the question, do ghosts realise they are actually dead?

Emmy nominations 2014: some surprises, just not the right ones

True Detective skews the field and The Good Wife was snubbed, but Lizzy Caplan and Orange is the New Black get their due

Game of Thrones leads Emmy nominations

See the full list of major Emmy nominees

True Detective face off: who should win the Emmy?

The morning of Emmy nominations is a strange ritual, sort of like Bill Murray waking up in Groundhog Day. Everything is sort of exactly the same but also slightly different enough that it feels a little bit like progress. Its true, they progress and change ever so slightly, like glaciers or the faces on our favorite actors. In each category one or two of the nominations change but everything else in each category is almost exactly as it was the year before.

Some new darlings arrive, like True Detective and Orange is the New Black, both earning much deserved first nominations. Old favorites fall out of favor, »

Haunter DVD Review

9 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Vincenzo Natali

Starring: Abigail Breslin, Peter Outerbridge, Michelle Nolden, Stephen McHattie, Peter DaCunha, Samantha Weinstein, Eleanor Zichy, David Hewlett,

Running Time: 97 Minutes

Certificate: 15

A horror version of Groundhog Day? “Surely not,” I hear you cry. The idea of rinse and repeat in the world of film, allowing for a protagonist to learn a valuable lesson and/or solve a mystery has recently been used in sci-fi thriller Source Code and sci-fi action caper Edge Of Tomorrow. It’s a complicated premise that is also simple to implement, much like time travel. Also like time travel, it is something that is very difficult to get correct as the film is instantly at risk from tripping over its feet. Haunter is thankfully a rather successful attempt at taking the idea of living the same day over and over again.

The first positive to say about the film is that it doesn’t muck about. »

Premature Review

7 July 2014 8:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I can say without hesitation that Premature is the best movie about ejaculation-triggered time travel that I have ever seen. Sure, that compliment doesn’t really mean much, but you have to admire a flick that takes that ridiculous, gross set-up and really runs with it – all the while building an endearing cast of characters and handing each of them consistently raucous, over-the-top material. To put it another way, Premature is far, far better than a film mashing together Groundhog Day and American Pie has any right to be, and I commend it for that.

We owe a debt of gratitude to Dan Beers, making his feature directorial and screenwriting debut, for looking past the immature surface of Premature to find the belly laughs and ample heart hiding just underneath. Everyone remembers what a rough time high school was, and Beers captures that remarkably well, from the useless school nurses »

Emmy Awards: Five Predictions You Can Take to the Bank

6 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Here’s a safe prediction: The Emmy Award nominations will elicit plenty of disgruntlement, along the lines of “What? No nomination for [fill in name of your favorite show here]? Those Emmy voters have their heads up their butts.”

The Internet has helped magnify these voices, creating a mini-industry around the disappointment (at best) and eruptions of anger (at worst) over award balloting, along with the simplistic charges that every overlooked show or performer has been “snubbed” by the collected members of the Television Academy.

The “snubs” argument notwithstanding, the Emmys do harbor some collective and historic biases, which help explain why certain kinds of programs and actors fare better than others. So while most of this week will be spent trying to anticipate who might land nominations at the crack of dawn West Coast time on July 10 — Variety will be in countdown mode this week with prognosticating posts rolling out starting Monday on top program categories — here »

'Edge of Tomorrow' Writer Reveals Alternate Ending and Discarded Plot Twists

3 July 2014 5:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Edge of Tomorrow has been hailed by the critics as one of the best movies of the year thus far, although the sci-fi thriller starring Tom Cruise hasn't exactly been setting the box office on fire, at least stateside. The film has only taken in $86.4 million domestically, but it has performed well overseas, with a healthy $320.9 worldwide take from a $178 million production budget. Of course, no one knows why exactly the movie isn't faring as well as many would hope, but it's possible that the controversial ending could have affected the box office receipts. However, according to screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie the ending was originally much, much more complex. Of course, if you haven't seen Edge of Tomorrow yet, there will be spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Date Movies For Parents: Fourth of July Edition

3 July 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Fourth of July evokes memories of fireworks, barbecues, parades...and some of movie history's biggest blockbusters (usually starring Will Smith). Going to the movies has been a holiday weekend tradition in my family since before my husband and I had kids, and sometimes it's nice (and necessary) to have a movie date night that doesn't include transforming dinosaurs or kid flicks. If you and your significant other have a few hours to deck out of the house and see a "grown-up" movie for a change, here are three suggestions.

So get a sitter, head to a theater near you, and walk right past the "Transformers" queue for a satisfying cinematic experience.

"Begin Again" (Rated R)

Directed by: John Carney | Starring: Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Adam Levine | Runtime: 101 minutes

Why It's Worth It: John Carney, who directed the charming musical love story "Once" is again mining the world of singer songwriters in his latest romantic feature. »
