Actor Vincent D’Onofrio has earned a reputation for playing an eclectic mix of character roles and giving eccentric performances. That is certainly the case with Jack Horne, the character he plays in Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven, a mountain man who has been living on his own before being enlisted by Denzel Washington’s Chisolm to help save a small town being threatened by someone trying to steal their land.
Horne’s such a strange character, speaking in a heavy accent and carrying a ritual Native-American tomahawk that he’ll use to scalp anyone who crosses him, but it’s also a great role for D’Onofrio that proves he’s able to step outside himself to create a very different character than previous ones he’s played.

One of the most exciting things to happen in the world of comic books and superheroes in recent years has been Netflix teaming with Marvel Television to make great streaming shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones.
While the Daredevil show has been put on hold as Marvel Television works on their other Marvel characters like Luke Cage (streaming next Friday, September 30!), Iron Fist and The Defenders, many have wondered if we might see the Kingpin in some of these other shows, particularly the latter, since he has been such a big presence in Daredevil's life.

Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend is one of the greatest vampire novels ever written, and is a noted inspiration on people like Stephen King and George Romero. The book tells the story of Robert Neville, who is seemingly the lone survivor of a plague that turned most of humanity into bloodsucking ghouls. Neville survives nightly attacks by hordes eager for his blood while trying to overcome the crushing loneliness of being the last human left. It’s a book that manages the twin feat of being a great horror story and an achingly sad character study; it’s got a gut-punch of a twist too.
I Am Legend is an inherently cinematic concept, but it hasn’t had a smooth ride on the big screen. »
Florence Kasumba commanded attention in the one Captain America: Civil War scene she was in, and she's set to turn heads again in NBC's Emerald City. Check out the first photo of her as East, a Wicked Witch. In Civil War, Kasumba was credited only as "Security Chief" but fans familiar with Black Panther's story from Marvel comics knew she was likely one of the Dora Milaje, a portion of Wakandan society held in high regard who serve as deadly bodyguards for the King. (HitFix's Emily Rome recently delved into their past.) While we hope to see much more of her, and other Dora Milaje, in Marvel's Black Panther film you can look forward to seeing Kasumba weekly on your television soon. Directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell), the 10-episode Emerald City is yet another take on L. Frank Baum's Wizard of Oz books. Here's the summary: In Emerald City, »

Anghus Houvouras with 9 ways to save the DC Extended Universe…
I don’t require much. Just a producer credit on every Warner Bros. DC movie, a balloon payment of $16 million dollars in gold cougarans, and 8% of the merchandising. Wait. Sorry. Got ahead of myself. Before the fans and Warner Bros. shower me in warm, glistening adulation they probably want to hear my amazing, borderline genius ideas on how to save the DC Extended Universe.
Before I unveil my nine part strategy to turn Warner Bros.’ DC movies from languishing, critically panned, polarizing pictures into a money-making, universally loved, acclaimed blockbusters… let me say this:
Personally, I’ve enjoyed Zack Snyder’s DC movies as grotesque monstrosities. Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are two of the most opulent assaults of sight and sound I’ve ever seen. I’d love to see what Zack Snyder does »

Mesmerizing horror film #Horror comes to home video. We raved endlessly about actress, artist, designer and now writer/director Tara (The Cell) Subkoff’s snarling new stylized thriller #Horror (read our in-depth interview with Subkoff Here) and with good reason. Exploiting technology to tell a tale of murder and cyber-bullying, #Horror is like an Andy Warhol-helmed after…

The gang at Scream Factory has quite the roster up their sleeves, and three of the releases they have planned sound quite interesting. On April 5th, Sf, in conjunction with IFC Midnight, will release the cyber-bullying gone wrong tale #Horror, featuring Chloë Sevigny and Timothy Hutton. Personally, I get excited for the Sf/IFC joint releases, with previous films like Dark Summer and The Babadook being some of my recent favorite genre films.
In #Horror, Chloë Sevigny (American Horror Story, American Psycho) leads an ensemble cast that includes Timothy Hutton (American Crime, The Dark Half) and Natasha Lyonne and Taryn Manning of Orange is the New Black. This shocking chiller is written and directed by actress and designer Tara Subkoff (The Cell, The Last Days of Disco).
