"Good does not always triumph. Sometimes, the dark side overcomes what Lincoln called the better angels of our nature."

So said General Corman in Apocalypse Now. But what Corman should have said is, "Sometimes, the dark side overcomes what Lincoln called the better angels of our nature - assuming test audiences or studio executives will allow it to happen."

Downbeat endings are by no means out of the question in mainstream movies, but there have been times where filmmakers have, often at the last minute, had to go back and shoot a happier ending for one reason or another. For your delectation, »

Rupert Wyatt To Resurrect A Horror Icon By Helming TV Pilot Of The Exorcist

2 February 2016 3:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox is moving fast in its efforts to resurrect dormant horror classic The Exorcist. Barely a week has passed since the network ordered a pilot episode of the modern reimagining, and now Fox has appointed director Rupert Wyatt at the helm.

Best known for his work across Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Mark Wahlberg drama The Gambler, Wyatt will take point for a reinvention of William Peter Blatty’s seminal 1971 book, a different spin on an old horror that has been pitched as a “serialized psychological thriller following two very different men tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession and confronting the face of true evil.”

For Wyatt, it marks a return to TV following a string of stop-starts in the blockbuster space. Not long after opting to pass up tentpole sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the filmmaker also pulled out of The Equalizer and, »

Secret Bad Robot Movie Revealed as '10 Cloverfield Lane'

15 January 2016 7:22 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

J.J. Abrams loves his secrets. Be it for "Super 8," "Star Trek Into Darkness," or "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," he's a filmmaker that loves the medium in the purest way possible. Well it turns out that the director/producer's production company has kept a film quite secret, and that film has now been revealed as "10 Cloverfield Lane" (It was previously being referred to as "Valencia").

Check out the trailer for the film below!

So the obvious question that comes to mind is... is this a "Cloverfield" sequel? It seems possible that it takes place in a post-alien invasion world, and that whoever John Goodman's character is is really just trying to protect these "prisoners" from the outside world created by the "Cloverfield" monsters, but it's hard to tell. For starters, the film isn't done in the found footage format that characterized the first one. While it's possible they »

10 Cloverfield Lane Trailer Breakdown: 15 Clues You Need To See

15 January 2016 5:25 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

For years people have been speculating about a Cloverfield sequel. Where did the monster come from? Was it killed at the end? How did Rob and Beth’s Coney Island date end? These were lingering questions that begged answers in some form. Probably a new found footage movie from the point of view of the military, or perhaps that guy on the Brooklyn Bridge we see for a second shooting another, equally exciting document of the monster’s attack. But, after eight years of silence, any follow-up looked dead in the oily water; director Matt Reeves moved on to the Planet Of The Apes and J.J. Abrams, well, did Star Wars.

But no – in a move more audacious than the title-less reveal of the original, we’ve just learned that not only does a new movie exist, titled 10 Cloverfield Lane and directed by first-time feature filmmaker Dan Trachtenberg, »

The Academy Museum Accepts Full-Scale Model Of The 1975 Jaws Shark

7 January 2016 12:03 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Academy Museum announced today that it has accepted into its collection a major gift of the sole surviving full-scale model of the 1975 Jaws shark, donated by Nathan Adlen. The monumental Fiberglas model is the fourth and final version made from the original mold. Created for display at the Universal Studios Hollywood at the time of the film’s release, the prop remained a popular backdrop for photos until 1990, when it was moved to the yard of Aadlen Brothers Auto Wrecking, a firm in Sun Valley, California, that regularly bought or hauled used vehicles from Universal Studios. With the business slated to close in January 2016, owner Nathan Adlen has made a generous gift of the historic prop to the Academy Museum.

The shark model will join the Museum’s unmatched holdings—including an underwater apparatus and fin used in Jaws and Jaws II—as the largest object to enter the Academy’s collection to date. »

Video: Nine Actors Whose Careers Got a Big Boost from Quentin Tarantino

6 January 2016 12:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What jumps to mind when you hear the phrase "Quentin Tarantino movie"? Hyperviolence? A bunch of different B-movies pastiched into something new? A lot of dialogue with a lot of bad language? That one "F" word in particular? Any of those could be right, but there's another thing many of Tarantino's movies have in common: a big, meaty role for an actor who's maybe in need of a career boost. In the case of the Tarantino movie currently in theaters, The Hateful Eight, the role is that of Daisy Domergue, a wily, foul-mouthed criminal played by Jennifer Jason Leigh. Now Leigh hasn't been without work. »

Cinema and the Class Struggle

5 January 2016 10:10 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Les Soviets plus l’électricitéFrance’s central place within film culture may have its ups and downs when it comes to adventurous film-making, but its reputation as a hub of international film viewing holds strong. Yet beyond the central role of Cannes in the yearly festival rigmarole, and references to the riches of the Paris film-going scene and to vaguely understood state subsidies, little attention is actually paid to the wider infrastructures of a film-going culture which, after all, provided more ticket sales for Uncle Boonmee than the rest of the world combined. To say this is not to trumpet French exceptionalism far and wide: Olaf Möller has spoken lovingly of the key role of film programming on West German television in the 1970s, and Italian critics would no doubt be able to provide similar insight into the workings of Rai 3 or the myriad smaller festivals which continue to »
