The HeyUGuys Summer Preview – Edge of Tomorrow

16 April 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In the past few years, time loop movies have been making a slight comeback in mainstream Hollywood. The genre is one rarely ventured into, with good reason, but the quality we’ve seen recently has been spectacular. So with baited breath, and fingers cross, I am wholeheartedly looking forward to Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow this summer.

The biggest reason I am it is not the fact that Tom Cruise is front and centre, but rather that Emily Blunt is right beside him in the female lead.

Blunt has been rising through the ranks over the years, making huge strides across a slew of genres with movies like The Adjustment Bureau, Your Sister’s Sister, and Looper, not to mention Disney’s upcoming Into the Woods. She traverses independent and blockbuster movies like few are capable of, and seeing her return to blockbuster territory here is what’s got »

Josh Anthony Talks Happy Camp

3 April 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Produced by Drew Barrymore’s Flower Films, Josh Anthony’s directorial debut Happy Camp tries to add a little something new to the found footage trope. Anthony was kind enough to take some time to speak with us about his love for the genre amd the challenges of taking the trip to Happy Camp.

He also discussed his high hopes for his first film to be successful enough that he’s allowed to make a second. That’s the dream, right?

DC: There are so many found footage films on the horizon and many that came before. Just to separate you from the pack a little bit, can you talk about the story of Happy Camp?

Ja: I wanted to try to evolve it a little bit more. When we first started doing this, it was a little bit stagnant and everyone was trying to do the Blair Witch model. »

Cinemas on Screen – The Best Movie Houses at the Movies

1 April 2014 4:34 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Our earliest memories of films we love usually come from a trip to the cinema. The strange, silent communion to which we are drawn again and again to live other lives, walk in other worlds and be changed forever. Well, that’s the plan at least…

A cinema trip is a ritual. Precious to some, holy to others. And whether you have your favourite seat picked out in advance, your preferred confection (except Revels – no-one really likes those do they?), go alone or with friends, flip out your phone with the Cinime app or sit in silent anticipation of the BBFC advisory, there is nothing quite like enjoying a film as it was meant to be seen.

Here are our choice moments from five films to feature scenes of our favourite pastime. Down at the front, phones off. The show is about to begin.

Kevin Costner Talks Western Film Series Plans

29 March 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are, essentially, two different worlds in cinema. In one, it is about art and original storytelling – the expression of unique ideas and voices for the purpose of thought-provoking entertainment. In the other, it is specifically designed to make money. The former gives us films such as Donnie Darko, Whip It and Being John Malkovich. The latter gives us Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Occasionally, a rare individual demonstrates the possibility of crossing that divide, and participates in projects that – sometimes - have feet in both camps. Alfonso Cuaron can do it. The Coen Brothers can do it. Tom Hanks can do it. And sometimes, believe it or not, Kevin Costner can do it, too.

There are some less than fragrant titles on Kevin Costner’s resume – as you would expect from an actor whose breakout role happened almost thirty years ago, in Silverado. The difference between Costner and most other long-serving filmmakers, »

20 actors who almost got the part: Katniss, Loki, Bond, Batman

29 March 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With rumours flying about a new Indiana Jones and Disney reportedly closing in on their final choices for Jj Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII, the Hollywood casting machine is operating at an even higher temperature than usual.

You'll be familiar with some of these near-misses, but others are frankly astonishing. Which rapper almost took Matt Damon's role in Elysium? Which former Friends star was the first choice to front Men in Black? And why is Leonardo DiCaprio Christian Bale's nemesis? Read on...

Al Pacino - Star Wars

Pacino revealed during a Q&A session last year that the role of roguish smuggler Han Solo was "his for the taking" back in the '70s, but he turned it down because he didn't understand the script. Harrison Ford made the role iconic and ended up having his own issues with Lucas's script, famously telling the director "You can type this s**t, »

'Happy Camp' Interview with Director Josh Anthony | Exclusive

25 March 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Don't let the title fool you, because Happy Camp isn't the bright and cheery movie you might think it is. This found footage thriller centers on Michael Tanner (Michael Barbuto), who goes back to Happy Camp, visiting his hometown nearly 20 years after his brother mysteriously disappeared. His brother's disappearance is just one of hundreds over the years, 628 to be exact, making the town world-famous for these unsolved absences. He brings his friends (writer-director-producer Josh Anthony, co-writer-producer Anne Taylor and Teddy Gilmore along for the ride to document everything on camera, as they soon begin to realize that the town of Happy Camp holds several secrets. Ahead of this thriller's release on VOD outlets such as iTunes, Time Warner, Comcast, DirecTV and other platforms starting March 25, I had the chance to speak with writer-director-producer-actor Josh Anthony about the production, how this story came together, shooting in the actual town of Happy Camp, »

Posterized: Jake Gyllenhaal

14 March 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jake on the set of Everest (2015)With Enemy, Dennis Villeneuve's trippy new thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jake Gyllenhaal opening this weekend,  it's time to look back on this actor we've loved ever since he stared in a mirror and saw a demonic rabbit staring back at him. Jake's been picky in his career making less features than other stars who've been in the business for nearly a quarter century. (Since his parents are both in the industry, he started young.) Jake recently turned 33 --  the Jesus year (!) which we'll pretend explains the hair --  and he's already built an enviable filmography having starred in at least one bonafide classic (Brokeback Mountain) and two others that might also stand the test of time (Donnie Darko, Zodiac).

So the question is now, what kind of a second act is his career going to have now that he's in Hollywood's preferred age »

The Definitive Kubrickian Films: 30-21

11 March 2014 9:51 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The difficulty in counting down films so clearly influenced by Kubrick is that there are certain directors who are just tailor-made for it. So, you start to run into situations like this section of the list, where two directors have two films and two other directors had a film mentioned in the last section. But that’s the way it goes. Much of Kubrick’s style isn’t reflected in the work of, say, Todd Phillips. Or Todd Haynes, for that matter.

30. Inception (2010)

Directed by Christopher Nolan

What makes it Kubrickian? As directors go, few rival the sense of complete control over his films like Christopher Nolan, famous for his obsessive attention to detail, much like Kubrick. With Inception, Nolan dialed up the control, creating multiple worlds set within dream landscapes, painting incredibly stunning shots and moments. Focusing on Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his team of dream surveyors, Inception is »

10 Celebrities You Forgot Were In Horror Films

6 March 2014 12:30 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

This upcoming month, there are two interesting genre titles playing on Fearnet that you should take note of; 'Eden Lake' and 'Dahmer.' Why? Because they both represent early movies for actors that have proved to be outstanding performers in the arts long before they honed their craft. In the case of 'Eden Lake,' the film is fronted by Michael Fassbender, long before he played Magneto in the 'X-Men' films, stole the show in Quentin Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds' & played the android David from 'Prometheus' with such cold, calculated perfection. Also, you can catch 'Dahmer,' the bio pic from director David Jacobson, which stars Jeremy Renner in one of his first cinematic lead roles. Now he's an Avenger in the Marvel Universe! So it got me thinking about other examples of successful stars you may have totally forgotten were in genre films. »

"Hellbenders" Won't Be Blessed with Cult Film Status

4 March 2014 5:14 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Many lower budget films are made in the hopes of finding some small audience that will appreciate it and, if they’re really lucky, possibly gain cult status and become one of those films that gets passed along and slowly gains momentum (like Rocky Horror Picture Show, Donnie Darko, or, to a lesser extent, Boondock Saints). Hellbenders 3D will never end up in that list, even though it clearly wants to be on it. It’s that desperation to be that cool horror comedy blend that knowingly winks at us while still delivering some thrills and laughs that effectively cancels out its attempts at both. A few promising bits at the start are ultimately negated by some incredibly sloppy editing and dark humor that’s hard to call “humor”, and Hellbenders never redeems itself after that. All Hellbenders really gives us is a wasted premise and 3D moments that don »

Exclusive: Actress Devanny Pinn Talks ‘Dead Sea’ (With New Clip and Two Stills)

25 February 2014 1:30 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Look, bad things happen in the water. Kids pee in pools, ocean-dwelling, antisocial sharks eat... well, you know that story, and in the upcoming flick Dead Sea, an overgrown lamprey spends considerable time munching on lake-dipping, scantily-clad people’s bits. We caught up with the film’s star Devanny Pinn recently, who dished on the Brandon Slagle ‘blood and bikini’ feature.     Written and directed by Slagle, who previously helmed the feature The Black Dahlia Haunting, Dead Sea stars (in addition to Pinn) Alexis Iacono (The Penny Dreadful Picture Show), Britt Griffith (Syfy's Ghost Hunters), James Duval (Donnie Darko), Chanel Ryan (Bad Kids Go to Hell), Candace Kita (Nip/Tuck), Tawny Amber Young and Kj McCormick, and revolves around a marine biologist who reluctantly returns to the town she grew up in, only to encounter the violent paranoia that has overtaken its locals as they prepare for the return of a »

'Dead Sea' (2014) Review

23 February 2014 7:39 PM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Review written by Jonathan Weichsel, MoreHorror.com

Last year director Brandon Slagle’s The Black Dahlia Haunting became the indie horror sleeper hit of the year. Now he has come back with Dead Sea, a film that, despite its colorful poster design, is in many ways even darker and more brooding than its predecessor. Fans of The Back Dahlia Haunting will embrace this new film even more passionately, and it will be an even bigger hit. Dead Sea is a film that is sure to make waves, pun intended.

Dead Sea revolves around a small town with a big problem. The town is built around a salt-water lake, and every thirty years a Lovecraftian monster appears and feeds on the local inhabitants until they restore equilibrium by sacrificing one of their own.

This causes a lot of drama within the town, and as with many great monster movies, the real »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2009

19 February 2014 5:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 20 Feb 2014 - 05:40

The unloved films of 2009 provide the focus in our final list of the 2000s' overlooked greats...

The year 2009 will partly be remembered as the year Avatar dominating the box office, with audiences flocking to see James Cameron's leafy pulp epic in shimmering 3D. Making almost $2.8bn worldwide, Avatar was a true behemoth, besting Cameron's own Titanic as the highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation) and hastening a rush of 3D films in the years that followed.

Films such as 2012, Sherlock Holmes and boozy comedy The Hangover were also among the top 10, but as always, some of the most memorable and individual films of the year were far from the most financially successful. So to round off our series of underrated flicks of the 2000s, here's our selection of 2009's overlooked films...

25. A Perfect Getaway

Required Reading: Cutting ‘Snowpiercer’ and Neil Gaiman on Creativity

18 February 2014 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “Unpopular Opinion: Maybe Harvey Weinstein Should Cut 20 Minutes From Snowpiercer” — Rodrigo Perez at The Playlist makes the case for a saggy movie, defending TWC for wanting to shake off the director’s cut. It’s tough to think of any movie that’s been better served by a studio cut…except maybe Donnie Darko. “Old News: What were movie fans talking about on February 17, 2004?” — Matt Singer digs up a decade-old story about Kevin Smith directing The Green Hornet and follows what really happened. “How Creativity Works: Neil Gaiman on Where Ideas Come From” — Ah, Brain Pickings. Thanks for this. »
