Watch Marvel Superheroes Die in Horror Movies

Watch Marvel Superheroes Die in Horror Movies
A new YouTube video has compiled an epic list of every Avengers star's death in a horror movie before they joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe and rocketed into the stratosphere. The nearly 6-minute video is a violent collage of all of our beloved Marvel characters getting brutally killed in some really well-known horror movies, as well as some lesser-known (and pretty cheesy) Drive-In flicks. While not horror movies, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 are going to have some pretty major fatalities, so this list might get an epic, superhero-sized makeover in the next few years.

The video starts with the man who started it all: Robert Downey Jr., the man behind Mr. Tony Stark, aka, Iron Man. Robert Downey Jr. is seen in 1994's incredibly violent Natural Born Killers getting gunned down, execution style, by Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis. It's an overly dramatic, but fitting clip to start this compilation.

10 Beetlejuice Facts You Never Knew Until Now

10 Beetlejuice Facts You Never Knew Until Now
Beetlejuice is the goth/comedy/horror mash-up of our blackened dreams. It was the Tim Burton Michael Keaton movie we didn't know we needed, when those two Caped Cruder capers were but bats in their belfries. Beetlejuice sits mightily alongside the rest of peak Tim Burton. Feel like your whole life is a dark room? One, big, dark, room? It's time to call the Ghost with the Most. Sure, he'll probably wreck everything, in this life and in the afterlife, but it'll be a blast. If he gets too bothersome, just call on a sandworm or two. Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! So shrink your head and get undead, crank up the Harry Belafonte, and journey into the Netherworld as we rediscover at 10 things you never knew about Beetlejuice.

Turkey’s Antalya Festival Navigates Rebirth in Troubled Times

Turkey’s Antalya Festival Navigates Rebirth in Troubled Times
Antalya — Under spectacular lilac and orange skies, it’s a particularly placid Mediterranean that laps against the curving pebble beaches of Turkey’s Southern coast. But the sea is also a constant reminder of a critical worldwide situation that is anything but calm, and that gave the 54th Antalya Film Festival its central theme. The refugee crisis was writ large across all sections of this year’s rejigged iteration — a calculated decision credited to British-Irish producer Mike Downey in his inaugural year as the festival’s Artistic Director. The opening gala was the World Premiere of Turkish-Bosnian co-production “Never Leave Me” which raggedly follows a gang of exiled Syrian kids on the historic streets of Turkey’s Balıklıgöl, and the final evening’s Special Screening was Aki Kaurismaki’s “The Other Side Of Hope” which drolly examines the relationship between a Syrian stowaway and a Finnish restaurateur: The festival was bookended by stories of the displaced.

Antalya Festival: Juliette Lewis on Harvey Weinstein, Acting with Robert De Niro, ‘Natural Born Killers’

Antalya Festival: Juliette Lewis on Harvey Weinstein, Acting with Robert De Niro, ‘Natural Born Killers’
Antalya, Turkey — When asked whether she’s had trouble along the lines of the alleged sexual assaults of Harvey Weinstein, Juliette Lewis said producers were too frightened of her, even at age 18, to try anything.

“I scared everyone,” she told fans at the Antalya Film Fest. “Even at 18, people thought I might blow their head off. It’s a good power to have.”

Speaking to an audience who had just seen “Cape Fear,” the 1991 Martin Scorsese film that launched her career, Lewis added, “In any field, it’s nice when things get revealed. It’s important for any line of work that people get found out for their crimes.”

Having received the key to the city from Antalya’s mayor at the fest’s opening gala Saturday, Lewis reflected on the many lessons she gleaned from filming with Robert De Niro, Nick Nolte and Robert Mitchum.

Leatherface Review

Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury‘s Leatherface is yet another unique interpretation of Texas Chainsaw tonality. This is the beginnings of evil; a moody dive behind the monster’s mask. After The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 introduced a colorful misery, after roadkill grindhouse turned darkly comical, after 2003’s “gritty, dark reboot.” The filmmakers behind Inside, Livide and Among The Living use Seth M. Sherwood’s screenplay to explore what could drive one child to his slaughterhouse obsession – with mixed results. As a Southern-strong franchise entry, it’s certainly not the worst (cough – Texas Chainsaw 3D – cough). But as a Bustillo and Maury product? Well, let’s just say we’ve seen them be more aggressive, better inspired and vastly richer when developing human characteristics.

Sherwood’s tale opens on a celebratory gathering. Verna Sawyer (Lili Taylor) presents a young Jed Saywer (Boris Kabakchiev) with his first chainsaw. Happy birthday! Jed

Patricia Arquette Details 'Weird' Encounter with Oliver Stone After Meeting for a 'Very Sexual' Movie

Patricia Arquette Details 'Weird' Encounter with Oliver Stone After Meeting for a 'Very Sexual' Movie
Patricia Arquette has detailed an encounter with Oliver Stone that left her feeling “weird.”

The actress took to her Twitter Friday to outline a time she was talking to the Platoon director about potentially starring in one of his movies. But after the initial meeting, Arquette said she began to feel increasingly uncomfortable.

“Years ago Oliver Stone wanted me to do a movie. We talked about the material which was very sexual. The meeting was professional,” the Oscar winner, 49, said. “Then I received from him long stem jungle roses. It’s not uncommon to receive flowers but something about them felt weird.

American Made – Review

Oliver Stone’s films from the 1990s feel substantially more radical than the anarchic, protest-cinema label that many seemed quick to slap on them. Like Stone’s JFK or Natural Born Killers, American Made is a barrage of visual and aural cues slapped together to create that same kinetic spirit that Stone so artfully mastered. Yet, in its attempt to be a Stone-level critique of America, director Doug Liman instead just apes the style without any discerning commentary. It’s like a high-schooler giving the middle finger to the Reagan-era policies without fully understanding the why.

Tom Cruise reunites with his Edge Of Tomorrow director, Doug Liman, to tell the true story of a pilot who is unexpectedly recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in U.S. history in the late 70s. What starts out as a few trips taking aerial photos of enemy bases in South America,

Review: Leatherface is a Giant Step Backwards for the Texas Chainsaw Franchise

  • DailyDead
So, here’s the thing: going into Leatherface, I was primed to love it, despite not being a huge fan of Texas Chainsaw 3D (whose only saving grace was giving us the endlessly quotable line, “Do your thing, cuz!”). I’ll never write off a beloved franchise when I’m not crazy about a particular sequel—after all, if I had done that, I may never have fallen in love with Wes Craven’s New Nightmare or went bananas for Jason Lives. And for the most part, I was on board for Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s exploration of the Sawyer family’s demented dynamics, despite the fact that Leatherface feels like two-thirds The Devil’s Rejects and one-third Natural Born Killers.

But then, the film takes such an egregious misstep in the film’s third act that I completely checked out on Leatherface, and it left me wondering

Joker And Harley Quinn Movie Will Deep Dive Into The Pair’s “Messed Up” Love Affair

Suicide Squad may not have been the four-quadrant success Warner Bros. had hoped, but with a final box office tally in excess of $745 million, the Powers That Be have spun out multiple projects based on the freaks and geeks comprising Task Force X.

A direct sequel is officially on the cards, after Gavin O’Connor (The Accountant) pipped Mel Gibson and Jaume Collet-Serra at the post, while we understand Warner has also drawn up plans for Gotham City Sirens and Joker and Harley Quinn, an embryonic spinoff centering on the fiery, “messed up” love affair brewing between the two DC icons.

Yes, the Clown Prince of Crime and his demented Puddin’ will soon anchor their own offshoot, with Jared Leto (Blade Runner 2049) and Margot Robbie (I, Tonya) back on board to reprise their Suicide Squad anti-heroes (“We’re bad guys! It’s what we do”). Behind the lens, Glenn Ficarra

Margot Robbie Calls Joker and Harley Quinn a Messed Up Love Story

  • MovieWeb
Harley Quinn Vs. the Joker is definitely happening. And while David Ayer had some fun last week sharing an old image from Suicide Squad that showed Harley in her Jester outfit, and got everyone speculating about his return as a director, it sounds like writer/directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa might actually be taking on this iteration of the two characters. Out promoting Goodbye Christopher Robin, Margot Robbie confirmed that she's also heard that this director duo is on board for the super villain spin-off.

As nice as anyone wants to be to DC Films, there's no denying that their impending Dceu slate is an outright mess. There are movies in development all over the place, but none are a sure thing. We've heard that Shazam, which is technically a New Line movie, will be the next to go into production after Aquaman. And from there it is anyone's guess.

Is ‘mother!’ a Head Trip? No, it’s an Allegory! Let the Term Papers Begin!

Is ‘mother!’ a Head Trip? No, it’s an Allegory! Let the Term Papers Begin!
A few weeks ago, when Darren Aronofsky’s aggressively out-there Wtf head-trip horror movie “mother!” was oozing onto the radar, it seemed likely to be one of those films that provokes a fiercely divided response. Whatever scandals the movie had in store for us, one contingent, you could imagine, would embrace the outrage; the other would recoil from it. (That’s the way these things tend to go.) An early piece in The Guardian, out of London, suggested that “mother!” might be the most controversial film to emerge from a major studio since “A Clockwork Orange,” and that’s the kind of advertising you can’t buy. A hot potato like “mother!” doesn’t come along every day, or even every year, so it’s fun to be able to say: Let the shock — and fiery debates — begin!

But now that “mother!” has arrived in theaters, it’s proving to be a divisive film, though

Venice Film Review: Vince Vaughn in ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’

Venice Film Review: Vince Vaughn in ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’
Over the years, I’ve consumed my share of vintage grindhouse flicks (revenge, car chase, blaxploitation, cannibal, you name it), but I confess that I never thought much about them until Quentin Tarantino came along and began to talk them up as if they were the second coming of cinema. Curious, I took a grindhouse-movie plunge to try to find out what it was that turned the scurrilous trash of the ’70s into Quentin’s cinematic sanctuary. I think I finally saw the light. Yes, the movies had sleaze, grit, wild violence, tawdry sex, an off-the-books aura of semi-scandalous transgression (all things I approve of). But what I now also saw is that they had a very perverse sort of conviction. The characters didn’t just commit sordid, reckless, and ugly acts; it’s as if the low budgets and air of extremity scraped away everything but their ability to mean it. You

Joker And Harley Quinn Movie Rumored To Have Bumped Gotham City Sirens From Dceu Slate

Well, it’s certainly been one heck of an insane week for us Batfans. First, we found out that not only is the Joker getting a solo origin movie that doesn’t take place within the DC Extended Universe, but then we also learned that despite Jared Leto not appearing in that particular film, he’s still expected to reprise his role as the Ace of Knaves in Suicide Squad 2 and Gotham City Sirens.

What came as even more of a (welcome) shock was that the as-yet-untitled Joker and Harley Quinn movie that was first teased by DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns at San Diego Comic-Con is moving forward, and that Crazy, Stupid Love filmmakers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are in final negotiations to write and direct.

Now, I’m all for more Harley on the silver screen as soon as possible, especially with Margot Robbie being involved,

Joker and Harley Quinn live action movie on the way

Mike Cecchini Aug 24, 2017

There are now two live action Joker movies in development, with a Joker and Harley Quinn "criminal love story" in development for the Dceu.

Hot on the heels of yesterday's news that Warner Bros. is developing a standalone Joker origin movie that doesn't have direct ties to the Dceu and wouldn't star Jared Leto comes the news that there's another Joker-centric flick in the works from the studio. This one, a Joker and Harley Quinn movie is absolutely part of the Dceu, and would pick up where Suicide Squad left off.

The Tracking Board broke the news that this currently untitled project is "a criminal love story in the vein of Natural Born Killers." John Requa and Glen Ficarra, the writing duo behind Bad Santa, and who have co-directed films like Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and Crazy, Stupid, Love are on board to write and direct.

Quentin Tarantino’s 9 Strangest and Most Surprising Movie Projects

Quentin Tarantino’s 9 Strangest and Most Surprising Movie Projects
When you think of Quentin Tarantino, classic films like “Reservoir Dogs,” “Pulp Fiction,” and “Django Unchained” certainly come to mind. But what about the critically reviled “Saturday Night Live” sketch adaptation “It’s Pat”? Or the Michael Bay Alcatraz action movie “The Rock”? Tarantino’s fingerprints have been all over the movies ever since his breakout debut in 1992, and some of his projects are way more bizarre than others.

Motion Picture Academy President John Bailey: The Variety Interview

Motion Picture Academy President John Bailey: The Variety Interview
Cinematographer John Bailey has been a member of the Motion Picture Academy since 1981. He has served off and on as representative on the Board of Governors since 1996. Now, he is the 36th president of the 90-year-old institution.

A passionate supporter of film preservation and history, Bailey didn’t expect to become a cinematographer after leaving film school at the University of Southern California in the late 1960s. He fancied himself a “film theoretician,” dreaming of bearing witness to an imminent American new wave of cinema innovation. A Westwood viewing of Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1970 film “The Conformist” drove him to pursue a career behind the camera. Some 50 years later, he takes the reins of an embattled organization that finds itself quickly moving forward on diversity initiatives while struggling to bring a long-planned museum to the heart of Tinseltown.

Three days after his election, Bailey spoke to Variety about stepping into the new post.

Oliver Stone Slams Media’s ‘Extremist,’ ‘Anti-Russian Fervor’

Oliver Stone Slams Media’s ‘Extremist,’ ‘Anti-Russian Fervor’
Presenting his latest work, “The Putin Interviews,” at the Sarajevo Film Festival on Monday, Oliver Stone took aim at the U.S. mainstream media for its inability or refusal to look beyond the established image of Russia and President Vladimir Putin.

The festival honored Stone on Sunday with its Honorary Heart of Sarajevo Award for his “exceptional contribution to film art.” As part of the tribute, the fest is screening four of Stone’s films, including “Snowden,” “Natural Born Killers,” and “Platoon.”

At a Q&A session during and after an entire four-hour screening of “The Putin Interviews,” Stone also touched on the powerlessness of Donald Trump in setting U.S policy, claiming the unwavering course of the country was set by the deep state, regardless of the White House occupant, but nevertheless warned of the U.S. president’s recent threats of military action in Asia and South America.
