Harvey Weinstein has revealed plans to branch out into television during an interview with the New York Times, listing two former Miramax properties as candidates for the TV treatment. The Weinsteins are apparently plotting to bring both Sin City and The Mist to the small screen, with the former set to “quickly follow” the 2014 release of Sin City: A Dame To Die For. How exactly the series will fit in with the two films remains to be seen, but Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are both thought to be involved in the show’s...

While most of our Experts expect Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine") to win the Best Actress Oscar, an overwhelming majority are backing Sandra Bullock ("Gravity") to take home the Golden Globe for Drama Actress. With seven Experts in Bullock's corner, she has leading odds of 17 to 10 while Blanchett, with the support of just two Experts, has odds of 13 to 5. See the Experts' latest rankings here. Bullock won this award with her only previous bid four years ago for "The Blind Side" and then repeated at the Oscars. Surprisingly, this queen of the rom/coms has lost all three of her Comedy/Musical Actress races: for "The Proposal," also in 2009, to Globes favorite Meryl Streep ("Julie and Julia"); for "Miss Congeniality" in 2001 to Renee Zellweger ("Nurse Jackie"); and for "While You Were Sleeping" in 1996 to Nicole Kidman ("To Die For"). Blanchett won this award with her »

You can't have a modern comic book movie without at least trying to link Joseph Gordon-Levitt to a role in it, it seems. He was, after all, said to be in the running to play the new Batman. Then he was linked with Ant-Man. Then he signed up for a role in Sin City: A Dame To Die For. And now? A possibly big screen take on Neil Gaiman's Sandman is finally back on the cards, and Gordon-Levitt's name is very much in the mix.
In the midst of all of the anticipation and never-ending character list for the upcoming Sin City sequel, there appears to be a marketing change in the works. A slight, but noticeable tweak has been made to the title of Robert Rodriguez’s follow-up. As depicted in a piece of promotional art at the American Film Market, the film now bears the title Sin City: A Dame To Die For, rather than Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
Here’s a photo of the film’s new poster, captured by Bloody Disgusting:
Whether this change is simply a change in preference is yet to be seen, as it is also possible that the change was made to tone down the aggression of the title, and imply a more honorable story.

I know there’s a release date and we’ll supposedly see the sequel to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City in August of 2014, but I’ve been following this project since the last Sin City ended up making both Rodriguez and Miller more vital – somehow – and I’m not going to believe this movie exists until I’m watching it. Especially since I was told I’d be seeing it October 2013 before it got pushed back.
That being said, new poster art for the film suggests that Dimension Films wasn’t so much into Killing for Dames as they are into Dying for Dames. Yes, the title “A Dame To Kill For” has been given a switcheroo to make it: “A Dame To Die For.”
There’s even a teaser poster out there if you can believe it. Click on the image below to see the whole »
With the long awaited sequel to Robert Rodriguez's Sin City, starring Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Eva Green, and Bruce Willis, finally seeing the light of day next year, Dimension Films are making some final tweaks to the project. Namely the title. Seen at this years American Film Market festival, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is now known as Sin City: A Dame To Die For. More than likely the result of some marketing exec balking at having the word 'Kill' in the title, it will no doubt rub some of the more die hard fans of Frank Miller's comic book series up the wrong way. Me? If it means I get to see a movie I, and countless others, have been waiting over eight years for, I don't care if its called Sin City: Tokyo Drift. via Bloody Disgusting Released: August 22nd 2014 »

Just a quick update, this. Robert Rodriguez's follow-up to his 2005 comic book adaptation Sin City should, if all have gone to plan, have been out by now. However, the decision was taken to delay the film to next year, and it's now going to be heading into cinemas on August 22nd 2014.
It's also, as Bloody Disgusting is now reporting, going to have a new title too. It's only a small change, but the film once known as Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has become Sin City: A Dame To Die For. We've no idea why the change has been made, but the site has posted the promo artwork that's doing the rounds at the American Film Market at the moment, so it seems to be definite. »
Every year, we here at Sound On Sight celebrate the month of October with 31 Days of Horror; and every year, I update the list of my favourite horror films ever made. Last year, I released a list that included 150 picks. This year, I’ll be upgrading the list, making minor alterations, changing the rankings, adding new entries, and possibly removing a few titles. I’ve also decided to publish each post backwards this time for one reason: the new additions appear lower on my list, whereas my top 50 haven’t changed much, except for maybe in ranking. I am including documentaries, short films and mini series, only as special mentions – along with a few features that can qualify as horror, but barely do.

Moon Munchers™ chewing their way into a department store near you!
Castle FM (September 24th, 2013) – After steamrolling unsuspecting retail outlets with FM’s critically acclaimed Wolf Wear™ apparel line, the undead cronies toiling in our underground laboratory have now tried their withered hands in the thankless arena of oral hygiene.
It’s that fateful day of the month, the day after the Full Moon, a Universal lament. Your clothes are nowhere to be seen (perhaps it’s time to invest in our Wolf Wear™ products). Blood, guts, and bones are draped over you like a shawl. You don’t know where you are, or whose uncle you’ve made a midnight snack out of. What’s worse is that you’re going to be late for lunch with a hot date! How are you going to woo the she-wolf when your foul breath smells of an overweight accountant? Worry that little muzzle no longer! »

Love Stories To Die For is a new one off comic from Image this month. This one is a bit of a treat for readers though, because it is not only one story, but Two! Both written by Dirk Manning, story one (cover below) features art by Rich Bonk
Whilst story two (cover below) is illustrated by Owen Gieni
Both stories are incredibly different in their content and tone, but both have the same theme of love running through them, and what lengths people are willing to go to protect someone that they are care; hence the title!
Story one, “Bloodlust: Deceiver of the Gods”, is set in 926 Ad in what is now seen as modern day Germany, and concerns a group of monks who are being attacked by a collection of monstrous creatures. They use one of their own to trick a group of passing warriors to protect them over the night, »

C’est arrivé près de chez vous (Man Bites Dog)
Rémy Belvaux, André Bonzel and Benoît Poelvoorde set out to make their first feature film with little resources and little money. In the tradition of filmmakers who can’t afford much film stock, the trio settled for a faux-documentary-style approach – the result is a high-concept satire of media violence which would spoof documentaries by following around a fictitious sociopath named Ben as he exercises his lethal craft. While the cinematic tradition of presenting villains as suave, charming, attractive, and intelligent individuals is nothing new, Man Bites Dog was still in many way, ahead of its time. Much like the great Hitchcockian villains such as Joseph Cotten in Shadow of a Doubt or Anthony Perkins in Psycho, Ben is a man of »
Viola Davis is sad because her daughter when missing. I'm sad because Hollywood keeps underusing her!Cinema Blend on the giving-too-much-away promotion of crime thriller Prisoners. I must add that one thing they're not giving away is Viola Davis. She's barely in the trailers, despite the fact that her daughter -- not just Hugh Jackman's -- also goes missing!

"They're making it out worse than it really is. He only shot her four times..." If the idea of a whimsical, affectionate black comedy based on a real-life small-town murder case strikes you as tasteless, then Bernie (2011, Universal, 12) will make for oddly uncomfortable viewing. Golden Globe nominee Jack Black is in uncharacteristically restrained form as Bernie Tiede, the prim and proper mortician with a disarming affection for corpses and a flair for musical theatre, who becomes full-time companion/houseboy to Shirley MacLaine's wealthy widow.
Seduced by Marjorie Nugent's first-class lifestyle but driven to distraction by her overbearing hen-pecking, the beamingly creepy Bernie commits a monstrous act for which the good citizens of Carthage, Texas, seem more than happy to forgive him – the real dark heart of this not so wonderful life.

It's hard to believe Casey Affleck turns the big 3-8 this week, just four days before his latest film, "Ain't Them Body Saints," hits theaters. It feels like we've watched the youngest Affleck grow up right before our very eyes. His first big-screen role came in "To Die For" (1995), opposite future bro-in-law Joaquin Phoenix. And then there are his collaborations with the elder Affleck, Ben, in films like "Chasing Amy" (1997), "Good Will Hunting" (1997) and "Gone Baby Gone" (2007).
Both of the talented Affleck boys have each enjoyed successful careers after getting into the business when they were just kids. Lucky for Casey, he never had to live in the shadow of his big brother, proving his talent was all his own after scoring an Academy Award nomination for his role in "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" (2007).
Fancy awards and A-list siblings aside, though, what is a »

When one of the world's greatest intellects happily admits to being seduced by fame, perhaps the rest of us should stop being so sniffy about it
• Watch the trailer for Hawking
Our celebrity culture rarely goes long unbemoaned: earlier this summer, Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring prompted another round of handwringing. According to the disgruntled, it was absurd that the likes of Paris Hilton should be famous. It was even more absurd that people should steal celebrities' knickers, and in doing so achieve notoriety of their own. Making a film about the ninnies involved was still more lamentable, and going to see it was almost as bad.
All the same, even those most aghast seemed unsurprised: no one can deny that obsession with stardom is rampant. Research has suggested that around 40% of adults expect to enjoy their 15 minutes of fame in some guise or other. »

What do you get when you combine Catherine Zeta-Jones, black lace, and the red carpet? Perfection. The mega-talented actress is one serious sexpot in this dress!
Catherine Zeta-Jones, 43, attended the premiere of her new movie Red 2 in La on July 11 when she turned up the heat on the red carpet. She stars along Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Byung-hun Lee and other big names in the film, but it’s safe to say that at the premiere she stole the show. She looks positively gorgeous in her gown. To die for!
Like fine wine, Catherine has only gotten better with time. We swear she hasn’t aged since Chicago! In a Maria Lucia Hohan gown, Catherine looked unbelievably sexy. The dress was strapless and showed off her super toned arms while the fitted lace bodice hugged her curves, showing off her svelte figure. However »

I first came across Joe Lynch while attending the then Fangoria-led Weekend of Horrors in 2007. Tired of walking around, I sat in the presentation hall, and watched Joe talk about his then upcoming film, Wrong Turn 2 (a sequel to the 2003 original). What stood out about Joe, and was quite different than most of the other folks talking about their films, was the fact that you could tell there was a genuine horror fan standing up there. When Lynch talked about Wrong Turn 2, he talked about how he wanted to make a modern day video nasty, and for anyone who has seen the film, it’s a fun, extremely gruesome ride.
Having directed that film, Joe then made a film that horror fans have been waiting to see for a long time (The Knights Of Badassdom), directed one of the segments in Chillerama (let’s not forget his role as Fernando Phagabeefy »
