Films that'd get a fairer hearing if they weren't sequels

29 July 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some sequels are doomed to live in the shadow of the hits that triggered them. Here are a few examples...

Following up a successful movie with a sequel is a tough proposition for any writer or director, and it's often the case that such follow-ups fail to recreate the magic of their predecessors. But sometimes, sequels can offer a different yet entertaining experience of their own, and it's even possible that, if they didn't happen to share the same name as an earlier hit film, they might even have been better received.

This article's dedicated to a few of these kinds of films. They offer lots of excitement, comedy, jolts of terror and a smattering of great performances, and might have fared better with audiences and critics had they not been sequels. At the very least, they attempted to do something a little different than the films they followed. While other examples undeniably remain, »

Dead Hooker In A Trunk Directors Will Helm Painkiller Jane Movie

23 July 2014 4:12 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Back in 1995, when Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada created Event Comics' Painkiller Jane  I'm sure they never dreamed it would one day generate two television projects on SyFy channel and an upcoming features film. In December of 2005, SyFy aired a made-for-television movie that that starred Emmanuelle Vaugier. Then in 2007, SyFy produced a television series based on the character, which starred Kristanna Loken ("Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines"). And today, The Hollywood Reporter reports, The Soska Sisters, Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska, have been hired to direct the adaptation of Painkiller Jane. The twin horror directors are best known for directing Dead Hooker In a Trunk and American Mary. Jane centers on the titular heroine, a cop, who, along with with her best friend and partner, goes undercover into an interconnected drug ring.  When Jane’s identity is exposed, her subsequent torture leaves her with preternatural regenerating abilities and a »

Take another look @ set images from director Alan Taylor's currently shooting feature "Terminator", starring Emilia Clarke as 'Sarah Connor', Jai Courtney as 'Kyle Reese', Jason Clarke as 'John Connor' and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the 'T-800':

"The way that the character is written, it's a machine underneath," said Schwarzenegger about returning to the franchise.

"It's this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh.

"And the Terminator's flesh ages, just like any other human being's flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages."

"Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800."

  

"And then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets ahold of him. 

"So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie..."

"Pirates 3" Remains Most Expensive Film Ever

24 June 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A list of the thirty most expensive films ever made, adjusted for inflation in comparison to the consumer price index, has been compiled by Business Insider. What made the list isn't a shock, though the ordering is sometimes unexpected.

Both the first two "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels and Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" sequels made the top fifteen which encompasses all films that cost more than $250 million to produce (not to market or release) in today's dollars. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" didn't make the list thanks largely due to the studio splitting it into two films and thus cutting its individual film costs considerably.

Others on this list like "Tangled" and "Superman Returns" further down essentially had to swallow large development costs of previous incarnations of the projects that never got off the ground. Here's the top fifteen:

"Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" - $341.8 million

What are the 36 Most Expensive Movies Ever Madec

21 June 2014 9:59 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Update: Thanks to a reader I've added Speed 2 to the list, if you find more that should be added let me know and we'll see if we can make this a little more accurate. In today's Hollywood, movies don't seem to exist first and foremost as pieces of entertainment or as even great stories to be told. Yes, you could argue that as far back as the studio system has existed it's been a "business first" attitude, but a focus on budgets, box office and salaries seems to be at an all-time high. If you disagree, fair enough, but as a willing participant in such coverage I'm also somewhat ashamed to admit I think the heavy focus negatively effects the kind of movies we get. So, what am I going to doc I'm going to give it even more coverage. Business Insider has posted a list of the 30 most expense »

The Possession of Michael King Release Date Announced

29 May 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s difficult to be scared of what you don’t believe in. Michael King, a documentary filmmaker whose wife has just died, has no belief in an afterlife and thus feels no fear when it comes to exploring the supernatural. He’s all too willing to tempt dark paranormal forces during the making of his latest film, and he’ll learn the hard way that supernatural forces not only exist, but are capable of great evil.

Anchor Bay Films’ upcoming horror movie The Possession of Michael King will be adding some paranormal scares to the summer.

The Possession of Michael King is slated for an August 22nd theater release and a home media release on August 26th:

Anchor Bay Heads into The Occult with The Possession Of Michael King, Release Dates/Info!

28 May 2014 11:14 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The quickest way to catch my attention is simply mention the words: occult, demonology or possession. I pride myself on giving any horror film a chance, but as a lifelong fan of the possession sub-genre of horror, I have a pretty intense love for films dealing with that stuff. Enter Anchor Bay. The studio is set to unleash The Possession Of Michael King to theaters August 22nd, with a DVD/Bluray/VOD and iTunes release coming four days later, on August 26th. Just from the synopsis, it sounds promising, dealing with a skeptic pretty much daring demonologists to show him proof of the occult and other entities, The Possession Of Michael King sounds like a pretty intense time. For more info, and the official press release, see below!
