Bayhem Is Unleashed In First Trailer For ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’

5 December 2016 7:06 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It all seemed so quaint back in 2007 when the first “Transformers,” a semi-passable, merchandise-driven blockbuster directed with explosive enthusiasm by Michael Bay, was released. Ten years later, who would’ve thought that not only would this become a massive franchise, but now a goddamn movie universe, with Bay —despite one detour to make “Pain & Gain“— emerging as the shepherd of all things Autobots and Decepticons.

Interview: Dominic Monaghan Discusses the Horror & Heart of Pet

1 December 2016 4:16 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Seth is lonely and in love—a potent combination that leads him to kidnap and cage Holly, the woman of his obsession, in the new horror film Pet. Written by Jeremy Slater (The Exorcist TV series), Pet stars Dominic Monaghan in a role that's equal parts chilling and heartfelt.

With the cleverly unnerving movie coming out on VOD and in theaters December 2nd from Orion Pictures and Samuel Goldwyn Films, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with Monaghan about the film's 10+ year journey to the big screen, making Seth a believable character, and what's on the horizon for the talented actor, including a TV show that Monaghan is developing with his Lord of the Rings co-star Billy Boyd.

Thanks so much for taking some time to talk with me today, and congrats on Pet, which has phenomenal performances—yourself included. I love this character that you play, Seth. It's »

Idfa DocLab’s Caspar Sonnen: ‘We’re Losing the Internet That We Fell in Love With’

20 November 2016 11:35 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amsterdam — It says something about the fast-moving world of digital technology that, while celebrating its tenth edition, Idfa’s DocLab is already dealing with the subject of restoration – as part of this year’s programme Canadian “web experience” “Bear 71,” a study of a female grizzly bear living in the Rocky mountains originally created just four years ago, has been reworked for Vr to preserve its existence.

At the same time, Vr itself – which accounted for quite a few works presented over the last two years – seems to be the subject of much less talk this year.

Caspar Sonnen, Idfa’s head of new media and DocLab’s irrepressible figurehead, suggests that enthusiasm for the medium may be on hold for now. “Vr is definitely still a big thing,” he says, “but I think, at this stage, everybody is getting a little bit tired of the hype. Last year there were »

Jai Courtney Joins Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later

3 November 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While the original 2001 movie Wet Hot American Summer turned into something of a cult hit, nobody could have predicted that this absurdist comedic tale of camp counsellors and their exploits at Camp Firewood would go on to spawn a franchise – but here we are. With news that Netflix plans to follow up its limited series prequel – Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp – with a limited series sequel, we also have the announcement that Jai Courtney has joined the cast. That means the upcoming Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later will have some Suicide Squad-level star power.

The original movie was star-studded all on its own. Co-written and directed by David Wain, with Michael Showalter also penning the script, Wet Hot American Summer featured an ensemble cast that included Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Showalter, Marguerite Moreau, Christopher Meloni, Molly Shannon, Ken Marino, and Joe Lo Truglio. »
