Night Visions 2015: Inaugural 'Nordic Genre Industry Days' - The Nordic Challenge

19 April 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Held in conjunction with the Night Visions film festival in Helsinki, Finland, the inaugural edition of Nordic Genre Industry Days presented panel discussions and pitch sessions for projects that are currently in development. As might be imagined from the title, the sessions held on April 16 and 17 were targeted directly at filmmakers and industry professionals. But the discussions have broader implications as well, in that they cover topics that affect everyone who loves genre movies. After all, if you love horror, science fiction, fantasy, and/or action movies -- not to forget high-strung mystery and suspense thrillers -- then you're open to good genre movies irregardless of their country or countries of origin.

Night Visions 2015: The Gunman, Starring Peter Franzen And A Lot Of Sean Penn's Muscles

16 April 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Peter Franzen is not the star of The Gunman -- that would be the clench-jawed Sean Penn, unbelievably bulked up, muscle groups well defined, as though he were auditioning for an art house version of The Expendables -- yet the Finnish actor might as well have been, judging by the warm reaction he received from the crowd gathered for the screening of the film, which opened this spring's edition of Night Visions. Franzen makes a strong impression as a bad guy, which is not a spoiler in view of the high percentage of villainous characters in the cast. The Gunman is intended to be a twisty action thriller, with Penn as Jim Terry, a formerly murderous mercenary who went on the run after killing a...

Night Visions Preview: Finland's Biggest Genre Fest Kicks Off

14 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The biggest and oldest genre festival in Finland, Night Visions, will kick off tomorrow, Wednesday, April 15, and run through Sunday, April 19. Because I drew the lucky straw, I will be attending the fest for the first time, and sharing my impressions of the films and the scene in Helsinki. The festival is held twice a year and focuses on horror, fantasy, science fiction, and action cinema. This year the spring edition of the program is themed as "Back to Basics," which is a call to action that I always support. I'm looking forward to seeing films we haven't covered yet, along with ones that I've missed so far, and some that I want to see again. In addition to the screenings, the festival...

17 February 2015 12:50 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Imagine Dragons is back with a new album, tour and outlook.

"We really had a lot more time to draw the creative blueprint for Smoke + Mirrors and what the live show would be like," lead singer Dan Reynolds tells ETonline. "For the first album, it was blowing up so fast we didn't have time to really decide anything -- it was just lights and a show in a new country every day. For this record, we were able to take the time to paint it all out."

Fans looking for a preview of the band's new show will find it in their video for "Shots," which was inspired by surrealist artist Tim Cantor's paintings. Imagine Dragons worked closely with Cantor on the upcoming tour, which kicks off Feb. 20 in Los Angeles.
