Predict Best Editing Oscar: Will it continue to line up with Best Picture?

23 September 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Best Editing is known for its close correlation with Best Picture. Since 1981, every Best Picture winner has at least been nominated in this category. And of those 33 races, 16 editing champs went on to win the top prize. -Break- Predict Best Costume Design Oscar: Will period and fantasy continue to dominate? Because editing is a non-visual art, it is not as easy to identify trends among winners. Action-heavy and suspense-driven films often prevail, including "Gravity," "Argo," "The Hurt Locker," "The Bourne Ultimatum," "Black Hawk Down," and "The Matrix." Lavish epics also frequently win, like "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" and "The Aviator." "Traffic" and "Crash" won in large part for juggling multiple characters and storylines, while "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The Social Network" featured complex flas »

Spotlight on the Stars: Tom Hardy

10 September 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at an up and coming A-lister, someone who’s a big star on his way to becoming an even bigger one. He’s Tom Hardy, an incredibly well respected and intense actor. It’s probably a shock to many that Hardy has yet to be cited with an Academy Award nomination (or even a Golden Globe nomination for that matter), but that speaks to how great the work is already. With another fine performance this year coming to theaters, now seems like a perfect time to take a look at Hardy, so let’s shine a spotlight on him right now! Hardy got his start when he was picked for a role in Band of Brothers, pretty much being plucked out of obscurity. He appeared in two episodes of the miniseries, which marked his debut as an actor. »

Penny Dreadful Season 2 Casting Update

8 September 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

American Horror Story: Coven fans who enjoyed renowned Broadway actress Patti LuPone’s turn as the murderous mother next door may be drawn to Season 2 of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful series, as LuPone has been announced to play a key guest-starring role connected to Eva Green’s character. Several other guest stars have been revealed and two actors have been bumped up to series regulars.

According to Variety, LuPone will join a Season 2 guest star roster that includes Douglas Hodge, Sarah Greene and Jonny Beauchamp:

“Hodge will play an intense Scotland Yard investigator named Bartholomew Rusk who is on the hunt to discover who is responsible for the terrible murders that have been plaguing London. Greene will play Hecate, the powerful daughter of Helen McCrory’s Evelyn Poole, and Beauchamp has the vague and mysterious character description of a “young man with a singular past.”

’71 Review [Tiff 2014]

6 September 2014 8:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The phrase “confused state” is used several times near the end of ’71. It’s not a comforting label to see applied to military operations, or action movies that replicate them. Whether it’s a theater of war or a war shown in theaters, precision with rifles shots and camera shots is usually called for. ’71 ignores this reasoning for the complexity that blooms when a war film lets itself get confused. It’s often times chaotic to look at and a little harder to track minute-by-minute than need be, but by coloring outside the clear cut lines usually expected of the historical action drama, what develops is a tense, resonant genre outlier.

The barebones title is more a hint at ’71’s impartial approach to a specific historical conflict than an indicator of reverent respect for dates and details. It’s an action film as well as a historical recreation, though in the early goings, »

Watch: UK Trailer for 'Monsters: Dark Continent' Heads into Combat

2 September 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"Killin' martians, baby." The most recent trailer for Monsters: Dark Continent, the sequel to Godzilla director Gareth Edwards' breakthrough indie sensation, showed off the larger scale story at the center of the follow-up. Now we get to see even more action as we follow a group of soldiers tasked with taking down some of the creatures across the globe. Thankfully though, it doesn't seem like they've completely thrown out the character-driven angle that made the first film so great as there seem to be hints of drama akin to Zero Dark Thirty or Black Hawk Down. This actually looks pretty decent, so we hope it ends up in the Us. Here's the new UK trailer for Tom Green's Monsters: Dark Continent from Vertigo Films UK: Monsters: Dark Continent is the sequel to Gareth Edwards' Monsters. Tom Green ("Misfits") makes his feature directorial debut with a script from Jay Basu. »

Charlie Hunnam Set for 'King Arthur', Rumored for 'Escape from New York' Remake

1 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Charlie Hunnam is about to be seen in the final season of "Sons of Anarchy" on FX and after that it will likely be a long stream of movies and the schedule is starting to fill up. He was recently named the title star of Guy Ritchie's Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, he will almost certainly be back for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim sequel and now he's rumored to be the top contender to play Snake Plissken in the remake of John Carpenter's Escape from New York alongside a couple others still in the mix. Hunnam as well as Dan Stevens ("Downton Abbey", The Guest) and Jon Bernthal (Fury, "The Walking Dead") are reported to be the top three choices for the lead role, looking to pick up after Kurt Russell as Plissken, a convicted bank robber in a crime-riddled New York City-turned-maximum security prison, coerced »

Steven Quale interview: Into The Storm, Final Destination 5

26 August 2014 12:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Director Steven Quale talks to us about his latest film Into The Storm, working on James Cameron's The Abyss, bad weather and more...

Steven Quale’s career seems to have been constantly submerged in water. Having worked with James Cameron back on The Abyss, their relationship has meant Quale’s involvement on multiple projects including Titanic and a co-director credit on the documentary Aliens Of The Deep. Quale’s solo feature directorial debut was on Final Destination 5, which wasted no time in plunging most of its cast into water, though they were mostly followed by rather heavy and deadly objects.

We caught up for a chat with Mr Quale to discuss his experiences of soaking actors in water and the challenges of filming a special effects heavy blockbuster, while managing to present a film with a new narrative perspective, as Into The Storm incorporates a first-person perspective into its story, »

Scott Derrickson interview: Deliver Us From Evil, Deus Ex, reactions

21 August 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The director of Deliver Us From Evil, Scott Derrickson, chats to us about the film, Deus Ex, and horror for kids...

After drumming up decent business in the Us at the start of July, Sinister director Scott Derrickson's latest film, Deliver Us From Evil, is finally in UK cinemas.

Currently on the set of Sinister 2, before he heads off to direct Marvel's Doctor Strange (and you won't be surprised to hear that's a movie that we couldn't explore in this interview), he spared us time for a chat about what he's done, and what he's up to. Without further ado...

Welcome to the world of international staggered release dates! We get Deliver Us From Evil this week in the UK, whereas it had a July 4th weekend release in the Us. It seems to me that it's a more natural fit over here than there.

Release Dates Revealed for Holiday Horror Comedy ‘Krampus’ and Supernatural Thriller ‘Spectral’

19 August 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Those who are naughty are going to get something a lot worse than coal in Michael Dougherty’s Krampus, while a Special Ops team engages supernatural forces in Spectral. This pagan demon and ghostly threat will officially see the big screen, as Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have just announced the release dates for both films.

According to Box Office Mojo, Krampus will come out in theaters on November 25th, 2015, while Spectral will see the silver screen in 3D on August 12th, 2016.

We reported in May that Legendary Pictures has signed Michael Dougherty to co-write and direct Krampus, a Christmas horror comedy co-written by Todd Casey and Zach Shields: “Based on an ancient legend about a pagan demon who punishes the wicked, Krampus is similar in style to Dougherty’s cult hit Trick R’ Treat.”

This is the second Krampus-based Christmas horror movie to begin development as of late, »

The Raid Remake to Have 12 Central Characters

19 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Raid remake is currently in development, and is being directed by Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3). I saw The Expendables 3 over the weekend, and it was pretty entertaining, but I'm still not sure that Hughes has what it takes to make a movie like The Raid. In the end, the remake seems like it is going to be nothing like the original movies. 

Grantland recently sat down with the director for an interview where he describes the movie as being in the vein of Black Hawk Down and Zero Dark Thirty, both of which are nothing like the original Raid movies. He says that the ensemble cast will include twelve central roles that he's currently casting, and he's looking to start shooting early next year.

“After that, I’m pretty sure I won’t do a movie with ensembles, camouflage, and guns for a while.”

The Raid Remake Is “In The Vein Of Black Hawk Down And Zero Dark Thirty”

19 August 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though The Expendables 3 shot blanks at the box office last weekend, only mustering a weak $16.2 million, that threequel’s director Patrick Hughes is already moving onto hopefully bigger and better things by heading up Screen Gems’ remake of The Raid. It seems a little strange that an American remake would be thought necessary for a three-year-old Indonesian martial arts actioner that has already been widely embraced across the world, but here we are. And recently, Hughes provided more details on what we can expect from this new Raid.

In a Grantland article about The Expendables 3, Hughes briefly mentioned The Raid, revealing that the remake will boast twelve leads (one of whom is The Purge: Anarchy star Frank Grillo):

Stallone’s endorsement is already paying off for Hughes. As The Expendables 3 rolls into theaters, the director is prepping his next blockbuster: a remake of the 2011 Indonesian fight film The Raid: Redemption. »

"The Raid" Remake To Be An Ensemble Piece?

18 August 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The upcoming American remake of the Indonesian action thriller "The Raid" sounds like it could be quite different to its predecessor.

The original film is kind of famous for its spartan approach. Character development and narrative complexity is kept to a minimum in favor of a high-concept, fast pace and brutal series of action set pieces. The cast is also kept pretty tight with only five or six key characters and about a dozen non-speaking background characters who kick far more than they speak.

In an interview for Grantland, the remake's director Patrick Hughes says his version is more an ensemble piece in the vein of "Black Hawk Down" and "Zero Dark Thirty," and he's casting the twelve integral roles of the film's ensemble with the aim of shooting early next year. He says "After that, I'm pretty sure I won't do a movie with ensembles, camouflage, and guns for a while. »
