Barbara Crampton getting ahead in Re-Animator

Barbara Crampton, who starred in horror favourites including Re-Animator and From Beyond, will lea the guest line-up at this year's Film4 Frightfest, it was revealed today.

"To say that I am overjoyed, excited and eager to attend FrightFest as a guest is putting it mildly. This festival has been on my radar for some time and to be included and have four films screening is a welcome nightmare from which I hope never to wake," said Crampton, whose new films Sun Choke and Road Games will première at the festival.

Also on the guest list are Braveheart and Trainspotting star James Cosmo, The Descent director Neil Marshall and Eighties pop icon Toyah Willcox, who has recently revived her horror career. Candyman director Bernard Rose will be there to introduce his new take on Frankenstein while Corin Hardy will take a break from work on his remake. »

12 Of The Most Iconic Movie Posters of All

17 July 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hundreds of movies are released every year, and for every movie that’s released, there’s a movie poster to go along with it.

While these movie posters typically do a great job of advertising the film for a few weeks prior to release, very few of them end up being remembered for more than a few seconds, let alone months or years.

But, there are some movie posters that stand the test of time, and over the years, have become iconic works of art in their own right. We’re talking about films like Jaws, Titanic, and the many others featured below which you can purchase at any time at great sites like fastprint.

#1 – Trainspotting

Trainspotting is a dark, twisted British movie released in 1996, directed by Danny Boyle and starring Ewan McGregor.

It’s become one of the most iconic films of all time over the years, and »

Robert Carlyle: ‘Big films don’t feed your soul’

He dominated the 90s with hits such as Trainspotting and The Full Monty, but has spent the past 10 years avoiding blockbusters. Now he’s back as the director, and accidental star, of Glaswegian comedy The Legend of Barney Thomson

Robert Carlyle walks into the room holding a small, pale pink alarm clock. Not, it turns out, a way of keeping tabs on how long he has to put up with me, but a present from Lorraine Kelly, whose TV show he’s just come from. “That’s going in my daughter’s bedroom later,” he says, with an hint of paternal triumph.

Trainspotting 2: Robert Carlyle thinks the internet porn revolution means we need a hefty rewrite

16 July 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rumours of a Trainspotting movie sequel have been getting louder in recent years, but Robert Carlyle has predicted big differences from Irvine Welsh's 2002 follow-up novel Porno.

The actor played Francis Begbie in Danny Boyle's 1996 adaptation of Welsh's bestselling 1993 novel and would return if the long-awaited sequel happens.

"One of the difficulties of just adapting Porno is that so much of it is to do with internet porn, which has moved on a lot since the book was written - or so I understand - so it would require a hefty rewrite," Carlyle told ShortList.

"It's also difficult getting all our ships aligned at the same time. What I would say is that it's closer than it's ever been."

Asked where Begbie would be today if the film doesn't directly follow the plot of Porno, Carlyle added: "Oh jail. Jail or dead. That's what's interesting. Where are these guys 20 years later? »

'Ivy' wins best film at East End fest

10 July 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Other winners include documentary Welcome To Leith.

Tolga Karaçelik’s Turkish drama Ivy has won the best feature award at the East End Film Festival (July 1-12) in London.

It marks Karaçelik’s second film, after 2010 feature Tollbooth, and was shot by Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Dop, Gökhan Tiryaki.

Set onboard a hulking cargo ship moored off the coast of Egypt, the film follows a skeleton crew of misfit sailors, forced to stay onboard after their paymasters go bust. But it isn’t long before power structures dissolve, leading to tension, threats of violence, and strange apparitions.

Ivy will receive its UK premiere at London’s Rio Cinema tomorrow (July 11).

It was chosen by a jury comprising Eeff’s 2015 Director-in-Residence Noaz Deshe (White Shadow); writer Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting); director Amma Asante (Belle); artist Viv Albertine; and director Ross Clarke (Dermaphoria).

Karaçelik will be invited back to the festival in 2016 as Director-in-Residence.

Michael Fassbender Takes Centre Stage In New Steve Jobs Trailer

1 July 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Made up of three scenes that focus on three important Apple product launches, Trainspotting and Trance director Danny Boyle teams with scribe Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network) for Steve Jobs, with Michael Fassbenders stepping into shoes of the titular technology pioneer, and the below trailer promises that we’re in for a hell of a ride. Fassbender is on top form as Jobs, as is an impressive supporting cast that includes Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet, and Jeff Daniels. The trailer also shows that it won’t be glossing over the fact that as brilliant as he was, Jobs was also incredibly driven, and wasn’t afraid to rub people in his business, and personal life, the wrong way. Boyle has always impressed, and over the last few years he’s knocked it out of the park with each movie. I have the feeling much won’t change here. »

Bluray/DVD Review: Dog Soldiers

23 June 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Scream Factory never lets up, do they? While all of their output isn’t pure gold (I’m still recovering from Tentacles), the fact is that the majority of the films that they release are given such a hands on approach to the film and special features to go with that to make most genre fans happy. Just this year, we’ve seen great releases of Mad Max, Class Of 1984, and countless others, and before the year is over, we’ll be getting new editions of The People Under The Stairs and The Sentinel. Out today, in a brand new Bluray release, is Neil Marshall’s 2002 werewolf action film debut, Dog Soldiers, a film that is not only worth picking up just for the film itself, but for a brand new set of special features that really further illustrates how much time and effort Sf spends giving fans what they want. »

Ewan McGregor open to Trainspotting sequel

23 June 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you some comments from Ewan McGregor suggesting that he’s keen to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi for a future Star Wars movie, and now the actor has been speaking about another of his former roles, revealing that he’s open to another outing as Mark Renton in the long-rumoured sequel to the 1996 cult classic Trainspotting.

“I would be up for it,” states McGregor. “I’ve said that to Danny [Boyle]. Everybody has talked about it and speculated about it, but I don’t if it’s happening yet. I’ve not seen a script and I don’t know if there is one. It’s been a long, long time.”

McGregor had previously distanced himself from any possible Trainspotting reunion, owing to a fallout between himself and Danny Boyle after he lost out on a role in The Beach to Leonardo DiCaprio. However, it seems that is all in the past now, »

McGregor On More "Star Wars," "Trainspotting"

22 June 2015 12:32 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Ewan McGregor says he'd be very happy to return to the "Star Wars" franchise and is excited about J.J. Abrams upcoming "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Appearing at the Edinburgh film Fest at the Lyceum Theatre (via The Daily Record), McGregor says:

"I'm excited as everyone else and am looking forward it seeing it. It's not a fanatical thing. I'm really pleased I'm part of the legacy of it and happy to see it and I've seen the trailer and it looks like they've absolutely nailed it."

With at least one of the anthology spin-off films looking to explore the period of events between the prequel and original trilogy, the possibility is there for McGregor to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi in some capacity. It's a possibility that McGregor is open to:

"I'd be happy to do the story from episodes three where I finish up and Alec Guinness starts. »

Trainspotting 2? Here's What Ewan McGregor Said

22 June 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Well before he famously failed to steer Anakin Skywalker away from the dark side of The Force in the Star Wars prequels, Ewan McGregor made his first big impact in Danny Boyle.s darkly humorous 1996 junkie romp, Trainspotting. Nearly two decades later, amidst some apparent bad blood with the director, the possibility of a return is promising. In an interview with a publication from his native land, The Scotsman, McGregor fielded the often-asked question regarding a Trainspotting sequel. Expressing that his long-held animosity with Danny Boyle has been left in the past, McGregor even expressed a willingness to jump on board the potential sequel. According to McGregor: I would be up for it, I.ve said that to Danny. Everybody has talked about it and speculated about it, but I don.t know if it.s happening yet.

Ewan McGregor has no more bad blood with Danny Boyle and is up for Trainspotting 2

22 June 2015 3:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ewan McGregor has said that he still wants to make a Trainspotting sequel with Danny Boyle.

The Scottish actor revealed that he was definitely "up for it", and that there was no longer any "bad blood" between him and Boyle after a high-profile fallout in the late 1990s.

Boyle and McGregor are thought to have fallen out after the actor was dropped for the lead role in The Beach in favour of Leonardo DiCaprio.

"It might be the film that brings me back [to Scotland]," he said at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. "I would be up for it, I've said that to Danny. Everybody has talked about it and speculated about it, but I don't if it's happening yet. I've not seen a script and I don't know if there is one.

Star Wars: Rebels season 2 premiere review - The Siege Of Lothal

22 June 2015 12:36 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Star Wars: Rebels is back, with nods to the original films, and some menacing villainy from Darth Vader himself. Here's Cameron's review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.1 The Siege Of Lothal

Season one of the latest Star Wars animated spin-off series came to an exciting and memorable end earlier this year. Not to mention a damn good one too. The Rebels gang had been joined by fan favourites from The Clone Wars, Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Clone Trooper Captain Rex, and one of the franchise's most iconic characters ever, Darth Vader.

It was a surprised-filled finale which took Star Wars: Rebels to new heights, and one wondered if the show could keep up the heart-stopping momentum. Thankfully, this one hour opener (well, a Us hour - it’s just over forty minutes) demonstrates aptly that these animated adventures have got much to offer. So much more.
