Representing an artistic experiment from director Mark Pellington ( Arlington Road , The Mothman Prophecies ), I Melt with You challenged its cast to blend improvisation with screenwriter Glenn Porter's script, turning out hours of intensely-performed footage that was culled for the final cut. Thomas Jane, Rob Lowe, Jeremy Piven and Christian McKay star as four college friends who, once a year, meet up in Big Sur. Now in their forties, their lives have all taken them in separate directions and the tensions between one another begin to reveal as their drug-fueled weekend progresses to dangerous extremes. ComingSoon.net spoke with Pellington, Jane, Lowe and Piven about the unique acting, editing and writing tactics employed to bring the film to the big screen. Check out the »
Came across this trailer and thought it was interesting in The Mothman Prophecies -but-without-a-Mothman sort of way. It's for a film called Donovan's Echo . Not a horror film, per se, but definitely a twisty-turny thriller with Danny Glover and, one of my personal favorites, Bruce Greenwood. This is writer-director Jim Cliffe's feature debut and it recently played at the American Film Market. We'll keep you posted if it gets distribution. Once a brilliant mathematician, Donovan Matheson (Danny Glover) has been an outcast since an accident that killed his wife and daughter three decades ago for which he blames himself. He finally returns home as the tragic event.s 30th anniversary approaches and begins discovering similarities to what had happened to him in the past. »
A group of friends band together to hide the truth about a mutual friend’s tragic death. They soon discover that an evil entity is in pursuit of them.
Does anyone remember a film called “The Mothman Prophecies” from a few years back? It starred Richard Gere & Laura Linney and it purported to tell the true story of the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia and some supernatural occurrences that took place there a while back. Up to that point I had never heard of the legend of the Mothman and the film, while a bit slow at… More »

Touch TV Show Trailer. Francis Lawrence‘s Touch (2011) TV Show Trailer stars Kiefer Sutherland, Danny Glover, David Mazouz, Karen David, and Philip Shahbaz. Touch‘s plot synopsis: “Centers on a father who discovers his autistic, mute son can actually predict events before they happen.”
When I saw this I immediately thought of Knowing, The Mothman Prophecies, and the book Simple Simon. Knowing drowned itself by its third act, The Mothman Prophecies was surprising good, with a mix of the supernatural and thriller and Simple Simon was made into an average Bruce Willis film. Touch seems more action based with Kiefer Sutherland’s Martin Bohm going out on missions his son assigns him through his gift (watch the TV trailer, you’ll see).
Some believe this show has a few hurtles to overcome and I have to agree. Here are a few:
First, being as it’s on Fox and stars Kiefer Sutherland, »

Anthony Hopkins is in final negotiations to take on the lead role in a new serial killer thriller being set up at New Line Cinema called Solace. It's always got to be nice when you land an Oscar winner in one of your films. It sure doesn't hurt the movie you're making... unless your Cuba Gooding Jr., I'm not sure why his career went the way it did after he won that Oscar for Jerry McGuire. Anyway, that's another rant for another day.
According to the trades Hopkins will play a character named John Clancy, a former doctor with psychic abilities who works for the FBI and is drawn into a unique serial killer case that pits him against a formidable foe. So Hopkins will be on the other side of the fence in this new serial killer film, unless there's some kind of twist at the end where he »

Disney's dance with "The Lone Ranger" just keeps getting trickier.
Deadline reports that Disney must accept the $215 million-ish budget that director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are presenting, or move forward without Verbinski... and, by extension, without Johnny Depp, who reportedly won't shoot the film without Verbinski behind the camera. Disney originally pulled the plug on "The Lone Ranger" because the budget got a bit too out of control, though last we heard they were negotiating. We'll keep you posted with further updates as soon as we have them.

The Orphanage is one of those foreign horror films snapped up by Hollywood for a remake yet has been languishing in development Hell.
Adams would play, Laura, a woman who takes over an Orphanage which she was housed in as a kid. But history starts to repeat itself when Laura’s son begins playing with an imaginary friend, the same imaginary friend which Laura played with as a child. Coincidence, I don’t think so.
The original was a great film to a point, that could be mistaken for a Guillermo del Toro film, who is actually the producer for the Hollywood remake. Also Mark Pellington (The Mothman Prophecies, Arlington Road) is still on board to direct.

Guillermo del Toro (who produced Bayona’s Orphanage) is also producing the remake, which currently has Mark Pellington (Arlington Road, The Mothman Prophecies) set to direct, from a script written by Larry Fessenden (Wendigo, The Last Winter) and original Orphanage scriber Sergio G. Sánchez.
Bd Horror News has been informed that New Line has held talks with Amy Adams about her headlining the film. Unlike the three time Oscar-nominated starlet’s other upcoming movies (The Muppets, The Master, and Man of Steel), the Orphanage remake would essentially be a starring vehicle for Adams.

 An English-language remake of Juan Antonio Bayona's The Orphanage has been in the works for a few years now, but it hit a rough patch in 2009 when would-be director Larry Fessenden exited  the project after dealing with casting issues. Happily, it seems his successor  Mark Pellington may be having somewhat better luck on that front. According to a new report, producers are eyeing three-time Academy Award nominee Amy Adams to play the lead in the film. Read more after the jump. Bloody Disgusting  writes that Adams has entered talks with New Line for the part of Laura, who returns to the orphanage where she grew up with the intention of turning it into a home for disabled children. However, her plans take an unexpected and disturbing twist when her young son befriends a mysterious imaginary friend who wears a mask. Though Adams is usually cast as a sweet, bubbly »

Amy Adams, currently helping Superman defeat evil Kryptonians as intrepid Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s reboot of “Man of Steel”, is reportedly in talks to star in New Line’s upcoming remake of the Spanish horror film “The Orphanage”. As far as I can tell, this would be her first horror movie, though I could be wrong. That is, if she actually signs on the dotted line to star. As of right now, she’s just in talks for the role. Guillermo del Toro will produce the remake, which will be based on the 2007 Spanish horror movie of the same name directed by Juan Antonio Bayona and written by Sergio Sánchez. Adams would play the female lead, a single mom who takes ownership of a run-down orphanage, only to discover that evil shenanigans are afoot. Actress Belén Rueda played the female lead in the original. The »

It’s got screaming skulls, pointy things and flying bits of concrete. It’s the final poster for Final Destination 5...
Once a clever and refreshing twist on the old slasher subgenre, the Final Destination series has itself gradually become an established part of the horror landscape.
By now, we all know broadly what to expect from the format: a bunch of teenagers sidestep some sort of disaster following a well-timed premonition. The grim reaper, understandably enraged at the teens' skilful death avoidance, begins to despatch them all in gruesomely inventive ways.
We've already had a plane crash, a motorway pileup, a malfunctioning rollercoaster, and a collapsing grandstand at a racing circuit. Final Destination 5, apparently influenced by the weird Richard Gere thriller, The Mothman Prophecies, will feature a collapsing suspension bridge.
With the movie out on the 26th August, Final Destination 5's marketing wizards have put out a new poster, »
They’re wobbly, dangerous, and a familiar sight in the movies. Here’s our celebration of the most memorably rickety bridges in cinema…
It's a plot device familiar from numerous films: the rickety bridge. Whether you're making a horror, disaster or action movie, a rickety or collapsing bridge is a quick, simple way of introducing added suspense. The wobbly crossing and tumbling walkway is such a familiar movie staple, in fact, that I almost wonder if the writers of Hollywood don't have some sort of patent on the device.
What follows is a selection of some of the most poorly made, disaster-prone bridges in cinematic history...
The Lost World (1925)
One of the earliest examples of a cinematic rickety bridge I've seen, this early adaptation of Conan Doyle's dinosaur-filled novel was a clear influence on the numerous monster movies that came after.
To get across a chasm into the lost world of the title, »
