We're back with another round of videos, this time focusing our attention on two new teasers for The CW's iZombie, a faux commercial for the zombie preventative drug, Zombrex, a sought-after item in Dead Rising: Watchtower, as well as a look at Ghoul, a found footage horror film featuring a cannibalistic spirit.

Once you’re in with David O. Russell, you’re really in. The Oscar-nominated director’s next film, buzzy biopic Joy, will reunite him with American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, ensuring another round of Oscar nominations for them all. Luckily, though, it won’t be all familiar faces for Russell: Sideways actress Virginia Madsen has just joined the cast, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
The film, set for a prime awards season release on Christmas Day this year, will focus on Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano (Lawrence), who began inventing at a young age and eventually hit it big with the Mop and Huggable Hampers, in addition to more than 100 other patents. As her empire grew, Mangano also juggled the responsibilities of playing single mom to three children.

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...
It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.
This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »
Less than one month after the first trailer debuted for the upcoming digital feature Dead Rising: Watchtower, Crackle has now unveiled the poster, featuring star Jesse Metcalfe wielding what is described as a "sledge saw," a combination of a sledge hammer and a chainsaw. Once Upon a Time star Meghan Ory is also seen in the poster, brandishing another dual weapon, which is both a samurai sword and a shovel.
Dead Rising: Watchtower takes place during a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy. Politics, public paranoia, and media coverage play an important role in the story's narrative. The cast also includes Virginia Madsen (Sideways), Dennis Haysbert (Men, Women & Children), and Rob Riggle (Let's Be Cops, 21 Jump Street).

Chazelle’s Whiplash, about an aspiring jazz drummer and his sadistic instructor, is his second feature film and is adapted from a short film of the same name that he also wrote and directed.

Only one of this year’s adapted screenplay nominees isn’t adapted from a book, and that’s Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash, which is adapted from his short film of the same name that took home the jury prize for short film from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The other four adaptations all come from books, three non-fiction and one fiction.

We are getting another movie based off a popular video game, and it of course includes more zombies! If you have been waiting to see anything regarding the Dead Rising movie, come check out the first trailer!
It's really hard to base an opinion off this trailer. I can't tell if it is taking itself seriously, or not. If it's not, then it looks farely decent because it looks like a low grade zombie movie with jokes. After all, how can you take Dead Rising seriously? Don't fret though, I had the same problem with the Ant Man trailer.
The good news? Even if this movie is terrible you won't waste a whole lot of money seeing it in theaters. Instead the film will debut on Crackle (Sony's ad runned video service) on March 27th. It should be free to watch, well if you don't count watching ads.

The adaptation of a popular zombie survival video game is a Crackle original
“How bad will it get?” a character asks in the first trailer for Crackle original “Dead Rising: Watchtower.”
It’s hard to tell, but the movie featuring familiar faces like Jesse Metcalfe (“Dallas”), Meghan Ory (“Once Upon a Time”), Virginia Madsen (“Sideways”), Dennis Haysbert (“24″), and Rob Riggle (“21 Jump Street”) doesn’t look good.

After delivering another knockout film last year with the sincere Nebraska, director Alexander Payne is busy at work gearing up to shoot his latest film, Downsizing, a science-fiction dramedy about a man and his wife who try to reinvigorate their lives and voluntarily have themselves shrunk down. Unfortunately for the man, his wife backs out at the last minute.
During the last week, Oscar Winners Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting, The Adjustment Bureau) and Reese Witherspoon (Wild, Inherent Vice) have signed on to play the leading couple of the film, but The Wrap is today reporting that Jason Sudeikis (We’re The Millers), Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) , and upcoming Oscar host Neil Patrick Harris (Gone Girl) have all signed on to join the project in unspecified roles.

More than 15 years ago, Reese Witherspoon gave her first really impressive performance as an ambitious, overachieving high school student in the indie comedy Election. She’d shown talent before then, but this was the moment we knew she would grow as an actress as she aged further into adulthood (she was 22 at the time, playing a teenager). Later came Legally Blonde and cemented her as a movie star, one who would go on to additional rom-com fluff like Sweet Home Alabama while only occasionally mixing in more substantial fare — enough to win an Oscar in 2005 for Walk the Line, at least. Now she appears to be focused on the latter in what some have called a career resurrection or (to borrow an idea from her Mud co-star) “Reese-enaissance” or (via the Fighting in the War Room podcast) “Reese-urgence.” And with this new era comes a reunion with her Election director, Alexander Payne »

Reese Witherspoon has signed on to follow up her critically-acclaimed performance in Wild with Downsizing. Ironically, the actress was initially attached way back in 2009 when we first reported on the project. Paul Giamatti and Sacha Baron Cohen were also attached to star at the time for director Alexander Payne, but it never moved forward, as the filmmaker went on to make Best Picture nominee The Descendants just a few years later. Matt Damon signed on to star back in November, playing a man who believes his life would be far better off if he shrunk himself, in what is described as a social satire.
Back in 2009, Reese Witherspoon was set to play a woman who met the shrinking man, then played by Paul Giamatti. It isn't known if she will still play the same role in this incarnation. Deadline reports that timing may be an issue with Reese Witherspoon, since »
The story centers on a man in the near future who realizes that he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself at a time when humans are able to do so to battle over-consumption and the depletion of the Earth’s natural resources.
Payne and Taylor won an Oscar for adapted screenplay for “Sideways.” Payne most recently directed “Nebraska.” Payne and Taylor also wrote the Oscar-nominated script for 1999’s “Election,” which starred Witherspoon.
The news was first reported by Deadline.com. »
