Need help finding a movie to watch? Let TWC find the best fit for your mood here.] Ever since becoming a household name as Monica on the hit sitcom "Friends," Courteney Cox has been a persistent screen presence, most notably in film for her recurring role as the feisty survivor Gale Weathers in the "Scream" franchise. She currently enjoys a devoted fan base for starring in the TV comedy "Cougar Town," for which she also produces and often directs. It is no surprise, then, that Cox has now turned to filmmaking, with first the Lifetime movie "TalhotBlond" and most recently her theatrical feature debut, "Just Before I Go." The film follows Ted (Seann William Scott) as he returns to his hometown to settle some unfinished »

He’s been absent from three sequels (not to mention the upcoming fifth instalment), but it seems that we may one day see Kevin Bacon returning to the Tremors franchise, with the actor revealing to Metro that he’d be keen on reprising his role as Val McKee from the original 1990 cult horror comedy.
“Definitely Tremors, but part of what’s great about that movie is there are next to no digital effects,” said Bacon when asked by the paper which of his prior movies would benefit from today’s special effects technology. “The monsters are done with puppetry, and it’s still off, funny and scary – it’s a cool accomplishment. I’d love to do something else with Tremors and revisit the character 25 years later.”

They may be best known today for their later roles, but these six stars all got their first break by playing super heroes on TV. Maybe these shows aren’t the most memorable or well-made super hero projects, and they aren’t the highlight of the actor’s career, but these little shows jump-started the careers of some future celebrities.

After that—Lee had a recurring role in the detective series Longstreet before returning to Hong Kong to star in a highly successful trio of films; The Big Boss (1971); the Chinese Connection (1972) and the Way of the Dragon (1972).

Our favorite group of "weirdos" are coming back to the big screen, now that a confirmed remake of "The Craft" is officially in the works. Sony is reportedly working on a reboot of the '90s cult classic starring Neve Campbell, Fairuza Balk, Robin Tunney and Rachel True as a group of teenage witches. Leigh Janiak, who directed the thriller "Honeymoon" and an episode of the upcoming "Scream" series for MTV, will helm the flick. Fans were immediately skeptical of the news, taking to Twitter to share their distaste -- but they weren't alone. 5 Freaky Facts About "The Craft" One of the stars herself, Fairuza Balk, also sounded off on her official account and it doesn't sound like she wants anything to do with it. "You guys are so sweet," she tweeted about the fan support. "It doesn't surprise me much. Sony made a lot of money off the craft »

Prepare to be bewitched, again! Sony Pictures is remaking the 1996 horror film The Craft with the help of rising genre filmmaker Leigh Janiak. Janiak, who found recent success within the horror film genre with her 2014 flick Honeymoon, is set to direct the film's reboot. She will also co-write the new version of the cult classic with Phil Graziadei, whom she has worked together with before, penning the script to Janiak's 2014 breakthrough film. The Craft was originally directed by Andrew Fleming and starred Fairuza Balk, Rachel True, Robin Tunney and Neve Campbell, who has starred in other horror films such as the Scream franchise. Doug Wick, who produced the original '90s flick will be »
Wrapping up its most watched season in seven years, The CW Network presented its 2015-16 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City. The indie-pop band Of Monsters and Men kicked off the presentation with a live performance of their latest single "Crystals," and their international hit song "Little Talks." Here's what CW's Mark Pedowitz had to say in a statement.
"This has been a terrific season for The CW, and is a result of a strategy we set in motion a few years ago to broaden out and grow our audience. We had our most watched season, and our highest-rated season among men, in seven years. We launched The CW's most watched series ever with The Flash, and with The Flash and Jane the Virgin, we received more critical acclaim than ever before. The CW is heading into »
The 1996 cult horror favorite, The Craft, about a group of aspiring witches at a Catholic high school, will be remade under the direction of rising genre star Leigh Janiak, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Janiak will also co-write the script with Phil Graziadei, who helped her pen her 2014 breakthrough Honeymoon, about a couple — Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones) and Harry Treadaway (Penny Dreadful) — whose lakeside vacation turns frightfully strange.
If you were a teenager of a certain disposition in the mid-'90s, then "The Craft" probably meant a lot to you. The supernatural, angsty movie brought together Robin Tunney, Neve Campbell, Rachel True, and Fairuza Balk and followed four high school girls who combine their witchy powers. The movie is definitely a particular era, and spawned a soundtrack featuring Letters To Cleo, Spacehog, Elastica, Our Lady Peace, and other acts that barely made it into the 2000s. And now, in what will be viewed by some as a kind of cruel curse, it's getting a remake. But with an interesting choice at helm. Sony has tasked Leigh Janiak to write and direct the picture. She made waves last year with her horror "Honeymoon" starring Rose Leslie and Harry Treadaway, and has since helmed an episode of the forthcoming "Scream" TV series. This is certainly a big step up and »

Sony Pictures is moving forward with a remake of the 1996 supernatural teen thriller "The Craft" by hiring Leigh Janiak to write and direct the new film. Doug Wick, who produced the original film, will return. "The Craft" starred Robin Tunney, who arrives at a Catholic school and befriends a trio of wannabe witches, played by Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True. The trio turn out to be amateur practioners and welcome Tunney's character, a natural, into their fold. When they use their magic to fix personal issues, they discover that dark forces aren't something to trifle with. Janiak doesn't have a big resume. She made her directorial debut on the "Honeymoon" horror film, which premiered at SXSW and acquired by Magnolia Pictures, and is directing and upcoming episode of MTV's "Scream" TV series. »
Teen horror The Craft is getting a remake.
Janiak was recently confirmed to work on another '90s reboot when she directs an upcoming episode of MTV's adaptation of Scream.
The original film was co-written and directed by Andrew Fleming.
So they're attempting to remake The Craft and Twitter is not happy
Watch the trailer for The Craft below: »
Back in December there were rumblings - born of a question buried in some market research - that a new version of teen-horror The Craft might be in the works. Those rumours have now been confirmed, with the news that oiginal studio Sony are once again behind the new project. Leigh Janiak will direct the film, and co-write with her regular collaborator Phil Graziadei.If her name's unfamiliar, Janiak is what you might call an up-and-coming filmmaker, and she's moving quickly. A producer's assistant on Europa Report, she next wrote and directed last year's excellent indie horror Honeymoon, starring Rose Leslie and Harry Treadaway. She's also just directed the seventh episode of MTV's Scream. The Craft will be her first studio feature gig; she reportedly impressed Sony's execs with a pitch about it being a tale of female empowerment.Columbia Pictures' The Craft, should you have missed it 19 years ago, »
The Craft was seen in 1996 as light and frivolous by some and beloved by others. Neve Campbell fresh from her stint on Televisions Party of 5 costarred in the film which released shortly before the horror breakout of Wes Cravens Scream. This was a teen film that elevated above where it could have settled due to individual performances particularly the incredibly psychotic rendition of Nancy played by the amazing and vastly underappreciated Fairuza Balk. So interesting that a film that did alright in theaters and gained a bit of cult status due to the performers themselves should come back around with a remake from the same studio that put forth the original. »
Back in the 1970s and ’80s, it was pretty common for all the big stars of a given TV network to come together once a year to shoot an over-the-top promotional campaign hyping the new season. (They even rode in hot-air balloons!) This happens a lot less often these days, but Monday night, MTV brought back this very old-school idea — with a modern twist. During Monday’s episode of Teen Mom Og, the network unveiled an extended promotion for its upcoming Scream adaptation in which 12 stars from six of its biggest hits — including Teen Wolf, Finding Carter, and The Challenge — appeared as bloody but very beautiful corpses (the actual stars of Scream make an appearance at the end). The ad, equal parts gory and comic, was designed to capture what MTV senior vice-president for creative Joe Ortiz calls the “meta commentary” of the original Kevin Williamson movie. »

Well that’s one way of ensuring Scream is MTV’s highest-rated show this summer. I won’t spoil the clever teaser trailer that the teen-skewing network just unveiled for its upcoming adaptation of the iconic slasher franchise, but let’s just say that MTV fans are going to get a kick out of what the creative team for the series, arriving this June, has come up with.
When a Scream show was first announced, I was one of those people pretty evenly divided between excitement at all the delicious meta commentary an update could bring and trepidation that it would end the same way as MTV’s Skins and Inbetweeners takes (e.g. not well at all, and best forgotten very, very quickly). Since then, though, MTV’s advertisements for the series have done a pretty surprising job of getting me on the show’s side – with its fresh-faced cast, »

I’m a fan of Wes Craven’s Scream. I know it is the film that started the whole “melodramatic teenager-in-peril” subgenre and had a heavy hand on why the majority of the 90’s was devoid of originality in American horror. However, there is no doubt that the first entry is a smartly written film that plays with the genre in pretty damn inventive ways and I still think it is owed respect. With that said, when I heard MTV was doing a Scream television series, I thought of their Teen Wolf series and said “Thanks, but no thanks” and quickly wrote it off. That is, until I saw this promo.
I think this promo is pretty great and if it was the opening scene of the show, I’d be hooked. In fact, I kind of am hooked. While Wes Craven decided to just be an executive producer, I »

A dozen MTV celebrities are shown gruesomely murdered in the latest sneak peek at the new Scream TV series. Based on director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson's iconic horror franchise, Ghost Face will return in an all new incarnation when the episodic murder mystery debuts this summer. But it looks like a few folks are going to miss out on the big premiere.
In the Scream TV Series, everyone has secrets. Everyone tells lies. Everyone is fair game. What starts as a YouTube video going viral, soon leads to problems for the teenagers of Lakewood and serves as the catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to the town's troubled past.
MTV's first season of Scream features a stellar ensemble cast of up and coming talent including Bex Taylor-Klaus, Willa Fitzgerald, John Karna, Connor Weil and Amadeus Serafini. Any and all of them could go at any minute, »
Wes Craven's Scream was a clever, self-referential take on the slasher genre. While it doesn't look like many are too excited for MTV's iteration (which begins airing on June 30th), I'm hoping it will be a send-up of the glossy TV shows it looks like it's emulating. Either way, this promo is a little more clever than the previous ones we've seen, and oozes a little more style. And blood. There's a bunch of that too. On AMC's side of things they're gearing up to start showing their »

The Hateful Eight isn’t the only Kurt Russell Western on the horizon, as the Tombstone star is also set for a return to the genre – albeit with a horror twist – in first-time director S. Craig Zahler’s Bone Tomahawk, and you can check out the first poster here…
After an outlaw unknowingly leads a band of cannibalistic Troglodytes into the peaceful western town of Bright Hope, the monsters kidnap several settlers, including the wife of a local rancher. Despite his injured leg the rancher joins a small rescue party with the sheriff, his aging deputy and a strong-willed gunslinger. What follows is a journey into hell on earth as the posse comes to realise it is up against a foe whose savagery knows no bounds. The film takes place in the mid 1800’s around the border of what is now Texas and New Mexico.
