In Defence Of... Brett Ratner's much-maligned X-Men: The Last Stand

10 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

When news broke that Bryan Singer would be returning to the fold for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, much to the delight of mutant fan-peoples, the director sweetened the deal even further with a promise. "There will be some fixing," he said, hinting that his third X-flick (after X-Men and X2) would address perceived problems with X-Men: The Last Stand, aka the threequel Singer dumped in favour of Superman Returns.

Here's the thing: X-Men: The Last Stand didn't need fixing. In a world where movie threequels often topple promising trilogies, it stands out as a fun, action-packed, stakes-raising gambit that features some of the trilogy's boldest set pieces and more than a few gob-smacking twists. Picking up months after X2's downbeat, watery climax, we find the X-Men mourning the death of Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) even as Worthington Labs announce they've found a mutant cure. Needless to say this divides the mutants, »

Wait a Minute... No Ghostface in Scream TV Show

21 October 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

If The Weinstein Company opts to move forward with the series while omitting the presence of Ghostface theyll be all but shooting themselves in the feet. The Scream franchise isnt exactly on the upswing. Genre fans have shown waning interest in the franchise as it is (each film has seen gradual decline in numbers Scream earned 103 million Scream 2 101 million Scream 3 89 million Scream 4 38 million). To possibly pull the one familiar from the franchise could prove detrimental. »

Nyff ’14: David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars and Consumed

6 October 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

There’s something about anti-Hollywood satire that brings out the worst/most facile in otherwise great filmmakers. The prime example is probably Robert Altman’s The Player, which pretends to be aghast that studio executives have never heard of The Bicycle Thief and concludes that’s why everything sucks. Oddly, Scream 3 may be the only satire in this vein with real teeth, since its murderous mayhem is instigated by a need to avenge a decades-old casting couch act of sexual aggression, something of more consequence than the usual “those philistines rewrote my script by committee” japery. David Cronenberg is decidedly not calling from […] »

10 Fan Theories That Link Totally Unrelated Movies

5 September 2014 5:24 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox/Warner Bros.

Shared universes are all the rage in movies and have been long before Marvel stepped up to the plate. Sure, their Cinematic Universe has revolutionised blockbuster cinema, providing a new franchise model that other studios with superhero rights are keen to replicated, but long before Nick Fury swung by Tony Stark’s pad late one night, film-makers have been having purposeful links between their films.

The king of this has to be Quentin Tarantino. What started off as a little name drop in Pulp Fiction (Vince Vega is the brother of Reservoir Dogs’ Mr Blonde) has become a definitive part of the director’s filmography. There’s way too many to list here, as evidenced by this whopping article that brings together all these references.

Tarantino’s contemporary, Kevin Smith, has likewise created his own universe, starting with Clerks and running through to its bleated sequel. »

15 Horror Franchises that Helped Define the Face of the Genre

27 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

There may be no other genre of film that juggles trends as often and openly as horror. One decade it’s the slasher; one decade it’s the ghost story; the next it’s found footage. The door does and will continue to revolve. That’s not going to change.

Fortunately for fans of this diabolical branch of celluloid, every now and then those shifts come on the heels of a landscape-altering production or the birth of a franchise destined to change the way we view film. We’ve seen movies evolve so much in the last 80-plus years it’s insane.

It’s almost hard to grasp, but it happens. And it often takes career-defining projects and game-changing films to make the shift a reality. Here are 15 horror franchises that enhanced or completely altered the face of horror as we know it.

‘Scream’ TV Series Casts ‘Arrow’ Star In Lead Role

19 August 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It has been recently confirmed that the lead actor for TV spin-off of 90′s horror franchise, Scream, has been recast in the form of Arrow‘s Bex Taylor-Klaus.

MTV’s production of the iconic film was already in place and set to go, until later on after a table-reading of the script with the cast. Originally, Amy Forsyth from TV show Defiance was meant to take on the leading role, but she has now been swapped in favor of Taylor-Klaus. The actress, better known for her character Sin from Arrow will play Aubrey Jensen, a loner who aspires to be a filmmaker.

It will be interesting to see what direction MTV will be going with the story, due to the many antagonists that played Ghost Face in the film  were targeting Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) mainly because of her Mother’s dodgy past. It’s safe to say the subject »

‘Scream’ TV series moving forward with cast and director announcement

5 August 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wes Craven’s 1996 Scream was easily one of the best and most influential horror films of the 1990s. Its sequel in 1997 was just as successful with critics, audiences, and at the box office. The franchise faltered with 2000’s Scream 3, but started to take a step back in the right direction with 2011’s Scream 4. While rumors have persisted for sometime that a Scream 5 is in the works, Entertainment Weekly reports that a TV series based on the popular franchise is officially moving forward and now has a cast and director.

In development since 2012, the Scream TV series will air on MTV, where other movie-turned-show, Teen Wolf, has a rabid cult following. The showrunner will be Jill Blotevogel (Ravenswood), while the pilot will be scripted by Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin (Criminal Minds), and will now be directed by Jamie Travis (For a Good Time, Call…).

Transformers: Age of Extinction scribe hired to write live-action Dumbo movie

9 July 2014 2:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having written the scripts for one of the biggest money making franchises in cinemas at the moment, Transformers: Age of Extinction scribe Ehren Kruger has been hired by Disney to pen a live-action adaptation of the classic 1941 animated Dumbo.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kruger will write the script and serve as a producer alongside Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy). No release date has been set, but one would assume it would be part of Disney’s 2016 tentpole line-up. This new version will apparently take the original tale and add a “unique family story that parallels Dumbo’s story”. The studio believes that the latest CGI technology means we can see a live-action flying elephant.

Dumbo will join an ever-growing list of live-action Disney adaptations. This year’s Maleficent starring Angela Jolie, a re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty, grossed over $630 million and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland took over $1 billion at the global box office, »

Disney pressing ahead with live action Dumbo movie

8 July 2014 10:57 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The writer of the last three Transformers films is penning a live action take on Dumbo for Disney...


Maleficent has proven to be a roaring success for Disney, as it continues to turn classic fairy tales and animated movies into live action projects. The studio continues to strike gold too, with Maleficent following the hugely successful Alice In Wonderland and Oz: The Great And Powerful.

Disney already has live action movies of Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty And The Beast in development. But it looks like it's now added Dumbo to its slate.

The Wrap reports that a live action Dumbo is set to be penned by Ehren Kruger for the studio. Kruger has previously penned Scream 3, Arlington Road and the last three Transformers movies.

Kruger will also produce, alongside Justin Springer. There's no word on a director or timescales yet.

Disney planning live action Dumbo movie

8 July 2014 2:27 PM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

So we've had Maleficent, Cinderella is dropping next year, and Jon Favreau is currently developing Jungle Book. Now, another Disney animated classic is getting the live action treatment, with the announcement of Dumbo. Unlike Maleficent, Dumbo is expected to be a straight re-telling of the classic tale of a baby elephant with oversized ears who learns to fly, with the massive cast of animals being brought to life by CGI. Screen writer Ehren Kruger (Transformers: Age of Extinction, Scream 3, The Ring, Arlington Road) has being brought on to write the script, which is said to have a "strong family component". Personally, there are alarm bells ringing for me. Kruger is a fine writer, but in recent years there has been a noticeable decline in quality in his work, with the latest Transformers, and its insufferable third act, being the latest example. via The Wrap »

Ehren Kruger Is Writing A Live Action ‘Dumbo’ Movie

8 July 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ehren Kruger, the screenwriter behind films like Arlington Road, Scream 3 and the last three Transformers movies, has been hired by Disney to write the live-action Dumbo movie. After the massive success of their $600 million-taking Maleficent, which was released earlier on this year, and the future Jon Favreau directed The Jungle Book, the beloved tale of the big-eared elephant is the next classic Disney film to be adapted with real actors. Live-action versions of Cinderella and Beauty And The Beast are also in the works at the studio.

Kruger will also co-produce the film along with Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion).

The announcement of the Dumbo movie definitely makes us ask the question; which property will Disney pick on next? Robin Hood? The Black Cauldron? We can only hope.

Movie Review – Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie (2013)

3 July 2014 4:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie, 2013

Directed by Steve Stark

Featuring the voice talent of Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith, Ralph Garman, Eliza Dushku, Tara Strong, Jon Lovitz, Jennifer Schwalbach, Neil Gaiman and Kevin Conroy.


Jay and Silent Bob hit the lottery jackpot, and use their cash windfall to become crime-fighting superheroes.

There is a lot that can be said for nostalgia. Many people look back at things we loved from our childhoods with rose tinted glasses and will often ignore their flaws because we remember them so dearly. In the mid-90s and early 2000s, Kevin Smith was riding high (no pun intended) with his comedy duo Jay and Silent Bob. The pair had debuted in Smith’s Clerks and would be recurring characters in Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma before getting their own movie, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, in 2001. The pair had comic books, »

10 directors who made belated returns to their franchises

3 April 2014 1:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Top 10 Ryan Lambie 4 Apr 2014 - 06:26

From Francis Ford Coppola to George Miller, we take a look at 10 directors who made belated returns to the franchises they created...

There's nothing new about directors returning to the stories and characters they first brought to the screen years before. Director Fritz Lang directed his first film featuring the mesmeric master of disguises Doctor Mabuse in 1922; he then returned to make The Testament Of Dr Mabuse in 1933, before heading back one final time for The Thousand Eyes Of Dr Mabuse in 1960 - the director's last film.

In recent years, however, it's become increasingly common for directors to return to the film series they began years earlier. It's an attempt, perhaps, to return to themes that still interest them, or to tell a new story in the same landscape as before, or maybe because of a Hollywood deal too lucrative to turn down. As the selection below proves, »

Carrie Fisher’s 5 Best Scene-Stealing Moments

20 January 2014 6:01 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Everybody knows Carrie Fisher. After exploding onto our screens as Princess Leia, she has slowly but surely become an institution, popping up in various mainstream shows and films taking on every role with panache. She may always be known best for the original Star Wars franchise, but that hasn’t stopped her from delighting us in the most unexpected places. Fisher obviously has a brilliant sense of humour and brings that to many of her roles, as well as being involved in several self-referential projects such as Fanboys (a film about stealing the new Star Wars film) and Scream 3 (where she plays an actress often mistaken for Carrie Fisher) – but more on these later.

Aside from indulging the Star Wars fan in us all (or most of us, at least), Fisher also regularly proves her worth as a dependable actress who’s here to stay. She flits between TV and film with ease, »

The flavor of bile is unmistakable. There just isn’t anything that tastes quite like it. And you know it when it comes on: The belly rumbles, the esophagus lurches within, and you battle back the slimy liquid that threatens to spew forth from your lips.

It’s a nasty experience. We all hate that sensation so we’re taking measures at Dread Central to help prevent such a situation from occurring.

We wish you no stomach troubles here, and we certainly wish the taste of bile on no man or woman. So we’re going to provide you with a list of sequels to avoid at all costs because if you check these out, you’ll be searching for the toothbrush in no time! »
