Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart team up in this comedy about a rich hedge-fund manager who is sentenced to San Quentin; desperate for tips on how to survive prison, he looks for help from a black businessman, assuming he'll know what to do. That's not racist at all! As it turns out, Hart's businessman has never even had a parking ticket, so it's the blind leading the blind. The Blu-ray has tons of extras, including an unrated cut of the film, a gag reel, deleted scenes, and these featurettes: "Just Put Your Lips Together and Blow," "Get Hard Line-o-Ramas," "The Kevin Hart Workout," "Face Off with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart," "-Ferrell Fighting," "A Date with John Mayer, »

Let’s just face it: Scream Factory’s insane amount of releases aren’t about to slow down anytime soon, and well, I think I speak for most horror fans when I say that that’s something to celebrate. Not only are they continually putting out great Bluray releases of older and almost forgotten titles like their Tentacles/Reptilicus, but the Collector’s Editions like the recently announced People Under The Stairs and I, Madman releases are definitely ones to celebrate.
In case you fright fanatics haven’t been paying attention or just haven’t gotten around to checking out some of the oncoming onslaught of titles, here are a few that are quite exciting for us at Icons of Fright. Read on!

The film doesn’t open until October, and is probably going to be with us for next year’s awards season judging by the trailer. Pretty meaty stuff. The script for the film is written by British playwrite Matt Charman and Ethan Coen & Joel Coen (Fargo, O’Brother Where Art Thou).
We’ve got the first poster (above), and you can watch the trailer after the official synopsis below. Catch Bridge of Spies in cinemas from October 16th.

Picking the best movies that come out in any given year is no easy feat. With over 800 movies released theatrically, there’s plenty to digest. As we reach the halfway point of the year, we decided to publish a list of our favourite movies thus far, in hopes that our readers can catch up on some of the films they might have missed out on. Below, you shall find the list of the top 30 films of 2015 to date, a list that ranges from independent horror films to documentary to foreign films and so much more.

Effective time travel films must be able to set clear, established rules and be a means of achieving greater, emotional weight . Without the two, a film can be eviscerated by plot holes or become an unruly, empty spectacle. Predestination, an adaptation of an Robert A. Heinlein’s short story, »
With Harrison Ford back as Rick Deckard, Denis Villeneuve in the director's chair, and Ryan Gosling eyeing a key role, the Blade Runner sequel was already in good hands, but now fans have another big reason to get excited, as it was recently announced that cinematographer Roger Deakins joined the film's crew:

PS4 exclusive scare ‘em up, Until Dawn, will be released on Tuesday August 25th in the Us, with the European release following a few days later on the 28th. Little has been revealed regarding Supermassive Games’ PS4 exclusive lately, but PlayStation Blog has today dropped the release dates, as well as a few more juicy pieces of information.
Most exciting (for me, anyway) is the news that Peter Stormare has officially joined the cast for the game. You might remember Mr. Stormare from his roles in Jurassic Park: The Lost World (he was a bad guy), Fargo (he was a bad guy), Arrow (he was a bad guy), and The Big Lebowski (he was a nihilist, and they don’t care about anything). One of the great character actors of our time, Peter Stormare will surely be an interesting addition to the cast. And probably a bad guy. Featuring »

The Cannes Film Festival is the most prestigious film festival in the world, and its top prize, the Palme d’Or, is film's highest honor. Consequently, people have really fervid feelings about what they think should win. Regardless of which film takes whichever award, it’s usually controversial. This year, the main competition jury, considered by some to be one of the best juries in the festival’s long, illustrious history, was headed by Joel and Ethan Coen (Fargo, No Country for Old Men, The Big Lebowski), and featured Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Jake Gyllenhaal, Xavier Dolan (Mommy), Sophie Marceau, Rossy de Palma, Rokia Traoré, and Sienna Miller. Here are the films that won at this year’s Cannes, as reported by Indiewire. Let the angry think pieces commence.Palme d'Or: Dheepan, directed by Jacques Audiard Grand Prix: Son of Saul, directed by Laszlo Nemes Best Director: Hou Hsiao »

Frances McDormand: "The more we say we need help, the less power we will have." Photo: Richard Mowe What you see with Fargo and Olive Kitteridge star Frances McDormand is what you get (at least most of the time). Her features devoid of make-up and colourful dress thrown together with equally colourful contrasting shoes she took a stance today (May 22) as part of the Cannes Film Festival Women in Motion talks and awards (sponsored by luxury goods brand Kering).
She had a very clear message to her sisters in the industry: they should stop marginalising themselves by constantly harping on about their plight. “There are plenty of opportunities, but the more we say we need help, the less power we will have. Women are on the move - but it is more about catching up,” she said.

While we know next to nothing about the plot for the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, we do know that at the very least, it's going to look gorgeous, as renowned cinematographer Roger Deakins has joined the team. Come inside to learn more.
Blade Runner 2 is moving full steam ahead. Just a couple months ago it was announced Denis Villenueve had been hired on to direct the sequel, with Harrison Ford set to return, and it looks like they're starting to build up the rest of the necessary behind the scenes crew to get production moving. Announced at Cannes, Roger Deakins, the cinematographer behind Prisoners, Skyfall, Fargo, and Many others has been hired on as the Dop for the new movie. Deakins has worked with Villenueve on his last two movies, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

The partnership between genre favorites Scream Factory and IFC Midnight has definitely been a good one, with the team-up doing quite an excellent job putting out some pretty entertaining films, with everything from Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook to The Vicious Brothers’ Extraterrestrial all being must have releases for horror fans. Adding even more solid titles to their partnership roster, Sf & IFC have now announced the July 7th DVD/Bluray release date for both Paul Solet’s Dark Summer and Jabbar Raisani’s Very solid film Alien Outpost. It’s been a while since Solet’s last film (the extremely effective and original 2009 motherly tale, Grace), so Dark Summer hitting shelves is some excellent news, and Alien Outpost is yet another very well done take on both the found footage-like subgenre and alien invasion flicks.

The 68th Cannes International Film Festival previewed its wares today with a press conference illuminated chiefly by jury heads Joel and Ethan Coen’s revelation that they, er, don’t watch television. If they’d made an exception for Fargo they weren’t saying, although they happily shared the festival eve limelight with fellow judging panelists Jake Gyllenhaal, Sienna Miller, Rossy De Palma, Xavier Dolan and Guillermo del Toro in a lively media opener.Empire’s festival friends at Getty Images have extended some of their photographic skills for a peak behind the scenes as Cannes gets a last-minute dust and a quick once-over with the Mr Sheen. Click on the images below for a closer look. Screenings-wise, the opening night film – La Tête Haute (Standing Tall) – was a worthy, socially conscious affair by actor-director Emmanuelle Bercot that might have been better placed in Un Certain Regard than in such a high-profile, »
