This Week In Trailers: The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, Batkid Begins, Kung Fu Jungle, Honeymoon

29 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

  Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This […]

The Definitive Foreign Language Horror Films: 20-11

25 July 2014 6:41 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In an odd turn of events, this list has a number of films that don’t have English-language titles. They just go by whatever the original title was. Good for us. What we do see in this portion of the list is a few movies that weren’t really created specifically to be horror films, but their themes and visuals made it so. In addition, we have some heavyweights of non-horror cinema creating horror films that push the genre all the more upward. “Thinking man horror,” if you will.

20. Le locataire (1976)

English Language Title: The Tenant

Directed by: Roman Polanski

Roman Polanski has made one of the greatest horror “trilogies” of all time with 1965′s British production Repulsion, 1968′s American production Rosemary’s Baby, and 1976′s French production The Tenant, completing his “Apartment Trilogy.” Unlike the other two, Polanski actually stars in The Tenant as Trelkovsky, a reserved man renting an apartment in Paris. »

Impressions of the Goosebumps Comic-Con Panel, Featuring Jack Black

24 July 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

There’s never a dull moment when Jack Black is around, and today’s Goosebumps discussion panel proved it. Sharing the stage with friend and director of the film, Rob Letterman, the two brought an effortless humor to the proceedings as they discussed their time working together on the film.

This led to the exciting reveal of the first sizzle reel for the upcoming film. Only a minute or two in length, it successfully relayed the level of humor and charm Jack Black is known for in his younger audience films. Playing a fictional version of Goosebumps author R.L. Stine, Jack Black is a campy, creepy recluse who appears dead set on keeping his daughter from straying too far from home. This situation leads a new neighbor to try and save Stine’s daughter after he sees what he thinks is her being attacked.

Kung Fu Jungle (Donnie Yen ) – Trailer

21 July 2014 4:25 AM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

Donnie Yen is back in a movie that will have fans heading to the cinema in October 2014 and it looks not to disappoint. Kung Fu Jungle looks like a creepy thriller with tons of action and after the disappointment of Special ID, i think this will more than make up for it.

The movie is directed by Teddy Chan and also co stars Charlie Yeung, Wang Baoqiang and Michelle Bai. Shaw Brothers legend David Chiang also appears in the movie, which is always great to see and i am a massive fan of his along with Donnie Yen.

Plot:

A martial arts instructor (Donnie Yen) working at a police academy gets imprisoned after killing a man by accident. But when a vicious killer (Wang Baoqiang) starts targeting martial arts masters, the instructor offers to help the police in return for his freedom.

The movie opens in October 2014.

Try Taking This "Journey To The West"

7 July 2014 9:01 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

The latest film, Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons, from prolific filmmaker Stephen Chow serves as a (very loose and comedic) prequel to the 16th century classic Chinese novel Journey to the West. Told in a highly comedic Kung Fu style, Journey to the West embraces religious beliefs in one man’s quest to rid the world of demons and their evil influences. A mighty tall order for anyone, especially this meek, yet eager, young man Xuan Zang (Wen Zhang) whose unkempt, dusty hair is extremely distracting.

Salt and Pepper: Top 10 Black and White Movie Tandems

5 July 2014 8:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When mixing black and white movie characters as either friends or foes on the big screen should not produce any gray areas at all. Whether amiable or adversarial the pairing of interracial tandems makes for an interesting sociological study in cinema where tension, togetherness, stereotypical profiling and mutual or reluctant acceptance makes for some captivating film fodder.

Sure, in many ways it is an overused cliched in the movies to produce racial tandems for the sake of the entertainment to allow the creative juices to overflow. In Salt and Pepper: Top 10 Black and White Movie Tandems we will take a look at various “salt and pepper” teams as they come together in the name of law and justice, hostile necessity, friendly frivolity or professional attachment to bring movie audiences a sense of adventure and curiosity in the name of comedic or dramatic license.

‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Champ Will Win Role on Broadway

3 July 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After nabbing the title of America’s Favorite Dancer on “So You Think You Can Dance,” the next winner of the Fox reality competish might go out “On the Town.”

Producers of the fall Broadway revival of “On the Town” will offer the upcoming winner of the current cycle of “So You Think You Dance” a part in the tuner as part of the series’ prize package. On the next episode of the show, the stage musical’s choreographer, Josh Bergasse (“Smash”), will choreograph a performance of opening number “New York, New York” featuring the 20 finalists in competition on “Sytycd” this season.

Casting for the musical, which opens in October, has already been set. The “Sytcd” winner would join the tuner in the spring, assuming that sales for the production are strong enough to sustain it for that long. No role has been specified, although the part seems likely to be a dance-centric chorus gig. »
