The Benefactor’s identity was finally revealed on Monday’s Teen Wolf, and it turned out to be the one person nobody was expecting. (Stop rolling your eyes, you did not guess this.)

Anyway, after accusing practically everyone they’ve ever met — including Lydia’s dead grandmother — the gang finally came face-to-face with the big bad, herself: Meredith! So not only is she alive, but I guess we also know why her hair is so big; it’s full of evil.

Pimping Eminem's new single, featuring Sia, 'Guts Over Fear', a new t.v. spot for The Equalizer has come online. I've been looking to this for a while now, and while I have been able to look passed the Man on Fire similarities, the more I see of this, the more I am convinced that the Denzel Washington starring reboot of the classic t.v. show could easily be the continuing adventures of John Creasy. Now, early word on this very good (greenlighting a sequel good), and it does look pretty kick ass, so I am sure I can get over the Man on Fire similarities when this finally hits the big screen. Released: 26th September (U.S.)/ 10th October (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Denzel Washington plays a former black ops commando who faked his death for a quiet life in Boston. He comes out of his retirement to rescue a young girl, »

Sony Pictures has released a new The Equalizer TV spot for director Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming thriller, and it showcases a new song from Eminem and Sia. Denzel Washington leads the dramatic action-thriller as a former black ops commando who comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz). Soon thereafter, things go south and he finds himself squaring off against violent Russian gangsters. Sony has been quite bullish on the film, putting a sequel into development well in advance of its release, but aside from hints at a more introspective piece, the first trailer didn’t really strike me as anything particularly noteworthy beyond a riff on Washington’s role in Man on Fire. However, this new TV spot highlights a few bits of solid humor from Washington’s character, making the pic a bit more attractive from my perspective. Hit the jump to »

I am about to make many of you feel very old…..Dakota Fanning turned 20 earlier this year. The I Am Sam actor is probably best known for her early screen work, although she has built up a resume of intriguing art-house films as of late, including Night Moves and Amy Berg’s upcoming drama Every Secret Thing. However, mainstream audiences have not seen her in a while. That will all likely change very soon though, as Fanning is now attached to the adaptation of Philip Roth’s American Pastoral, in the role of Merry Levov.
American Pastoral is frequently touted by many readers (and this writer) as one of the greatest American novels. The modern classic from Philip Roth follows the life and times of Seymour “Swede” Levov, a high-school athlete who seems to be living the American dream, with a beautiful wife, home and job he inherited from his dad. »

When a bomb blows a passenger ferry out of the Mississippi, federal investigator Denzel Washington learns that he can prevent the carnage - and save a dead beauty - with the appliance of time-bending science. It's E=mc skewed as the ultra-cool star and his Crimson Tide/Man On Fire director zig-zag their way through wormholes and plotholes to formulate an absurdly enjoyable sci-fi thriller. »
It's the role that everyone has been dying to see Christoper Walken take, they just didn't know it. Walt Disney Pictures has just announced the star of a wide variety of films such as Catch Me If You Can, Hairspray, Wedding Crashers, Man on Fire and Mousehunt will take an animal role in their new live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic The Jungle Book from director Jon Favreau. The studio has announced that Walken will play King Louie, the ruler of a troop of monkeys and apes. In addition, "Breaking Bad" star Giancarlo Esposito will play Akela, the leader of the wolf pack. That's a great cast! The two new actors join an animal cast that includes Idris Elba as the tiger Shere Khan, Scarlett Johansson as the python Kaa and Lupita Nyong'o as Rakcha, the mother wolf who adopts the orphaned Mowgli in the jungle and Ben Kingsley as Bagheera the black panther. »

The most recent trailer for Sony Pictures contemporary update of the 80s TV series The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington almost feels like a spiritual sequel to his fantastic thriller Man on Fire. Now Washington takes center stage on an IMAX poster for the film from director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day). A sequel is already in development for the film because it's been testing so well with audiences, so we're anxious to see what we'll get this fall. While we're not sure a film like this needs to be seen on the IMAX, especially when no part of the film was shot on the large format, some people will get suckered in. Here's the new IMAX poster for Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer from IMAX on Twitter: The Equalizer is directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Shooter, Olympus Has Fallen) and written by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 3, The Mechanic). Denzel Washington plays McCall, »

Details are being kept under wraps, but the plot is described as a Man on Fire type of story that centers on a father and son, with a sci-fi element in place. Relativity emerged victorious in a competitive bidding war for the script, which was sold in a six-figure deal that closed earlier this week.
Exclusive: Relativity has optioned an untitled sci-fi-tinged spec for development from screenwriter Joe Gazzam. It’s the latest score for Gazzam, who sold action-thriller Shadow Run to Sony in February and won the coveted gig writing Cliffhanger for Neal Moritz and StudioCanal in May. I’m hearing the sale came out of a competitive situation and closed this week. The log line is being kept under wraps but project is described as a Man On Fire-type story of a father and son, with a science fiction element. Producers are Alan Gasmer, Peter Jaysen, and Ahmet Zappa along with Devon Schiff. Gazzam is […] »
Eric Bana’s latest role as real-life NYPD Officer Ralph Sarchie finds the accomplished Aussie actor firmly entrenched in a world where evil goes way beyond the typical street crime and routine arrest. As a cop with South Bronx's 46th Precinct in the Nineties, Sarchie had seen it all...
But it was his involvement with cases concerning the occult the revealed his true purpose.
On a rainy night on location in the Bronx way back in July of 2013, Dread Central and a few other outlets had the chance to speak to Bana (fittingly, inside an old church) about the responsibility of telling Sarchie’s story in a believable way.
Dread Central: So it sounds like you’ve been dealing with quite a bit of prosthetics and other things like that on this film. How has that experience been?
Eric Bana: No, not for me. Not too bad. I mean, »

Tom Hardy is no stranger to playing outlaws (Bronson and Lawless, to name only two), but his latest crime movie takes things to the next level by giving Hardy two different roles to play at the same time. In Legend, Hardy plays Ron and Reggie Kray, twin brothers who ran London's criminal underground in the 1960s. And if that doesn't sound enticing enough, you should know that it's the newest movie from L.A. Confidential and Man on Fire screenwriter Brian Helgeland. Joining Hardy in the film are Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald and Taron Egerton. And if you'd like to get a jump on the movie (which doesn't have a release date), you could read John Pearson's The Profession of Violence, the book upon which this is based....

Shooting is just now getting underway on Legend, a gangster movie which Brian Helgeland scripted and is directing for Working Title, and our first look at Locke actor Tom Hardy, who is playing the infamous Kray twins Ronnie and Reggie in the movie, has landed online (above).
Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald and Taron Egerton are also starring in the film, which focuses on the rise and fall of the Kray twins in London through the 1950s and ’60s. It’s based on John Pearson’s book The Profession Of Violence.
We’re expecting to see Legend hit theaters sometime next year. It’s probable that Working Title will hand it a fall release date and make an Oscar push for Hardy, a star who has been rapidly gaining the admiration of the Academy thanks to his roles in films like Bronson, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, »

Exclusive: Universal Pictures is remaking iNumber Number, and David Digilio has been set to script the remake of the Donovan Marsh-directed South African thriller that premiered last fall at Toronto. Universal acquired those rights shortly after the fest. Pic is an action thriller centered on an undercover police detective who crosses over from cop to robber in order to orchestrate a major heist. (Check out the original’s trailer below.) Chris Morgan will produce for his Universal-based Chris Morgan Productions. Aram Tertzakian of Xyz Films is also producing and so is Emile Gladstone. Xyz partners Nate Bolotin and Nick Spicer are exec producers. Digilio most recently wrote a TV series adaptation of the Tony Scott-directed Denzel Washington drama Man On Fire for 20th Century Fox TV and New Regency TV, and he sold a pitch based on the Robert Crais novel Suspect to Fox 2000 with Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson producing. »

Last July, Screen Gems invited us on the Bronx, New York set of their supernatural horror film Deliver Us from Evil. Originally titled "Beware the Night", the film is based on a book by former NYPD Detective Ralph Sarchie. Sarchie was a sixteen year veteran of the forty-sixth precinct in the South Bronx, one of the most virulently crime-ridden areas in the seventies and eighties. Sarchie was a chronicler of the occult, participating in numerous exorcisms and cases of demonic possessions. Deliver Us from Evil takes place in modern times with Eric Bana starring as Sarchie. The film is written and directed by Scott Derrickson, who has had tremendous success in the horror genre with his previous films, The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister. Deliver Us from Evil costars Édgar Ramírez as Mendoza - a Catholic priest, and Joel McHale as Butler, Sarchie's NYPD partner.

It is a dish best served cold, so they say. It is also, at least as far as cinema is concerned, less straight-forward than you might think. Someone might be on a mission and it might seem to be revenge-like, but if it turns into a rescue, does that disqualify it?
What if there is a revenge element to an otherwise-themed film? Take Taken, if you will. He wants his daughter back and is prepared to use a particular set of skills to do so, but he clearly wants some measure of revenge on the kidnappers as well. What are we to do? We could debate such questions endlessly.
With this week’s release of In The Blood , Haywire’s Gina Carano is going to have at those she holds responsible for her husband’s disappearance. So, instead of nit-picking, let’s visit some of the best revenge missions that »

"He didn't take out five pimps. He took out the East Coast hub of the Russian mafia." Eee-uh-oh. Denzel Washington takes the law into his own hands - again - in the very first international trailer for "The Equalizer," a new "Falling Down"-meets-"Taken"-meets-"Man on Fire"-meets-"Death Wish"-meets-"Taxi Driver"-style male-rage actioner from Antoine Fuqua, who previously directed Denzel to an Oscar win in the 2001 police thriller "Training Day." The film is based on the '80s TV series of the same name starring Edward Woodward. This time around, the two-time Academy Award winner takes on all of organized crime after witnessing the brutal beating of a young prostitute played by Chloe Grace Moretz ("Carrie," "Kick-Ass"). Luckily for him he's got "military training" on his side, meaning he's capable of dispatching a roomful of gangsters in just over 19 seconds while barely breaking a sweat. »

(Editor's note: The trailer above is the international trailer and not the first “official” trailer for the film.) Denzel Washington has perfected the solemn soldier (“Man on Fire”) and the boisterous braggadocio (“2 Guns”). He plays the cop and the criminal with equal verve, and he is always at his best when unfettered by “rules” or “morals.” He is a classic action hero with a leading man's acting ability. See photos: 49 Summer Movies on Our Radar Washington is all of those things at once in his new movie “The Equalizer,” due out this fall. He is a retired intelligence officer (kind of. »

The first International trailer for Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer has been released, giving us a great first look at Fuqua's big screen version of the 1980's television series of the same name. The director has teamed up with his Training Day star Denzel Washington for the new movie, and Washington appears to be in full badass mode for The Equalizer. The trailer has a Man On Fire vibe I'm really digging, and even though I never saw the TV show, I definitely »

Review Caroline Preece 5 May 2014 - 07:00
The Vampire Diaries gang are off to a spooky cabin in the woods this week. Here's Caroline's review of What Lies Beneath...
This review contains spoilers.
5.20 What Lies Beneath
Secrets. The Vampire Diaries is a show built on secrets – what the characters aren’t telling us, what salacious flashbacks have yet to be mined for present-day parallel and what each corner of each of the numerous love triangles is actually feeling at any one time. This week’s episode, What Lies Beneath, was an episode that addressed these secrets and, as a handy by-product, actually provided some relief to the audience. There’s only so long we can watch Caroline pine after Stefan, or Stefan and Elena keep the fate of Enzo under wraps, before everyone needs to sit down and discuss things.
That’s not usually the show’s style, with all the »
