Michael Fassbender (X-Men series) leads an all-star cast that includes Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation), Charlotte Gainsbourg (Independence Day: Resurgence), CHLOË Sevigny (American Horror Story), Val Kilmer (Heat) and Academy Award® winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) star in The Snowman, a terrifying thriller from director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), based on Jo NESBØ’s global bestseller.
For Detective Harry Hole (Fassbender), the murder of a young woman on the first snow of the winter feels like anything but a routine homicide case in his district. From the start of the investigation, The Snowman has personally targeted him with taunts—ones that continue to accompany each new vicious murder.
Fearing an elusive serial killer long-thought dead may be active again, the detective enlists brilliant recruit Katrine Bratt (Ferguson), to help him connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new ones. Succeed, and they will »

Today, Jason Blum – of Blumhouse Productions – is undoubtedly one of the most successful producers in cinema. His filmography is actually quite eclectic, with him having helped deliver projects across a number of genres – from the drama The Reader, to the comedy Tooth Fairy. His production label has become synonymous with horror movies, though – and that’s all thanks to one film: Paranormal Activity.
Prior to Oren Peli’s CCTV-based ghost story, Blum had enjoyed a somewhat patchier run as producer – but when Paranormal Activity earned $193 million worldwide against a budget of just $15,000, business at Blumhouse Productions kicked into high gear. Specializing in low-budget horror that earn big returns, Blum has since produced horror franchises including Insidious, The Purge, Sinister and Ouija, as well as standalone titles, such as Oculus, Creep, and Get Out.

It looks like Martin Scorsese will follow up his currently-in-production mob epic The Irishman by reuniting with Leonardo DiCaprio, although it may not be for the previously reported FBI tale Killers of the Flower Moon or the Dr. H.H. Holmes serial killer film The Devil in the White City.
According to Deadline, the duo are set to collaborate on a biopic of the 26th U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, which was first set up way back in 2005. Originally it was to take its inspiration from the Pulitzer Prize-winning Edmund Morris book The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, with Nicholas Meyer (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) penning the screenplay. However, this new take will instead be based on a script by Scott Bloom.

This weekend brings the remake of “Flatliners,” Joel Schumacher’s 1990 thriller that starred Julia Roberts. Reviews are universally terrible for this retread of good-looking med-school students who put life-after-death on repeat, but it was a nail-biter for studio Sony Pictures from the outset: They took the risk of making an honest-to-god remake.
A remake sounds like the safest bet there is; isn’t original, untested IP the thing that studios fear most? However, in this market a true remake is what passes for a gamble. They’ve become a box-office rarity.
While none of this year’s top-grossing films are originals, there are very few genuine remakes. Yes, the year’s biggest movie, “Beauty and the Beast,” is a direct remake of the 1991 classic — but it went from animated to live action. (It was not a remake of the multiple live-action films and TV shows that preceded it, which stretch »

The Oscar-winning star is teaming up with his friend and frequent collaborator to create a biopic focused on the life America's 26th president, Teddy Roosevelt, according to multiplereports.
DiCaprio and Scorsese have reportedly been trying to develop Roosevelt for over a decade, but have run into numerous obstacles as the project lingered in limbo.
This would be the third time DiCaprio has starred in a biopic for Scorsese, following The Aviator in 2004 and The Wolf of Wall Street in 2014 -- both of which earned DiCaprio and Scorsese Oscar nominations.

Here's news of another role for Leonardo DiCaprio. The star of Gangs Of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, and The Wolf Of Wall Street, all of which he made with director Martin Scorsese, will be teaming again with the legendary director. DiCaprio will star as Theodore 'Teddy' Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States, in the biopic Roosevelt.
The screenplay was written by Scott Bloom. The movie is being produced by Paramount Pictures, along with DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson through their Appian Way banner, and Scorsese and Emma Koskoff through Sikelia, with Chuck Pacheco.
Roosevelt was president of the Us from 1901 to 1909. The 42-year old vice president took office after the assassination of President William McKinley, becoming the youngest president in American history.
Former New York Governor Roosevelt was a Navy veteran. »
For fans of Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese, the future is looking incredibly bright. Deadline reports that Paramount is in development on a Teddy Roosevelt drama which will be a star vehicle for DiCaprio, with Scorsese attached to direct. The project marks the third movie the duo has in development, following adaptations of the crime thrillers “The Devil In The White City” and “Killers of The Flower Moon.” Scott Bloom has been set to write the drama, with DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson producing through their Appian Way banner.
The project is in the early stages of development, so there’s no word on what part of Roosevelt’s life the movie will tackle. Material that could certainly be mined for a film could be his years as a Rough Rider during the Spanish-American War, as well as »

Unlike some legendary A-list filmmakers, Martin Scorsese has always been fairly prolific. He fairly reliably knocks out a movie every two or three years, and has never let more than four pass between major films (the gap between “The Departed” and “Shutter Islalnd” was his longest. Somehow, in that time, Scorsese’s also been a fairly prolific documentary filmmaker as well — this century alone has seen his films on Bob Dylan, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones and the New York Review Of Books, among many others.

Legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese is launching an internet-based course in making movies — his first foray into e-learning.
The Oscar-winning director will debut the class in early 2018 through online-education startup MasterClass. The class costs $90 for unlimited access to more than 20 video lessons; pre-enrollment is available starting Friday at masterclass.com/ms.
In addition to the videos, Scorsese’s MasterClass course will include a downloadable workbook with lesson recaps and supplemental material. Students enrolled in the class will be able to upload video questions to Scorsese, who will provide feedback to select students.
“I was excited by this project because it gave me a chance to pass down my own inspirations and experiences and practices and evolutions,” Scorsese said in a statement, “not as a blueprint for how to make movies but as a guidepost, an offering to young people attempting to find their own way.”
Over a 50-plus career, the New York City native has produced a legion »

The new Tomb Raider movie is slated to come out on March 16th, 2018 from Warner Bros. Pictures. This will mark the third film adaptation of the Tomb Raider video game franchise, following 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life, both of which starred Angelina Jolie as the title character. The new movie will serve as an origin story for Lara Croft, who first graced screens in Eidos Interactive's 1996 video game Tomb Raider.
Horror and thriller fans may be interested to know that the new Tomb Raider movie is directed by Roar Uthaug, who helmed the 2006 slasher film Cold Prey and the 2015 environmental thriller The Wave. We have more details on the movie below, »

Lara Croft is finally coming back to the big screen. And today we have our first real look at the Tomb Raider reboot. The official Tomb Raider Twitter dropped a sneak peek, promising the Tomb Raider trailer is coming tomorrow. We also have a brand new poster that shows Alicia Vikander as the famed video game treasure hunter as she sets out on her first mission.
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father's global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he's truly gone. »
Alec Baldwin as a tough guy or Alec Baldwin as the goofy, overplayed boss. Who’s better? In The Departed he’s a tough as nails but somehow less than admirable police captain, while in Along Came Polly he’s the slightly off kilter boss that is so quirky he’s funny. It’s kind of hard to pick between the two since it’s really amusing to see him in both roles. But if I had to pick, my favorite, it would be Captain Ellerby from The Departed. It’s not an easy pick really since in both films he plays a sound role that sees
Providing you haven’t been living under a rock since Friday, chances are you’ve caught wind of Warner Bros.’ tentative plans to cast Leonardo DiCaprio as The Joker. And it all centers around legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese.
The Oscar-winner and frequent DiCaprio collaborator has entered talks to produce a “super dark” origin movie involving the Clown Prince of Crime, and though early rumors pointed to a much younger rendition of the DC mega-villain, we’re now learning that Leonardo DiCaprio has landed at the tip-top of Warner’s wishlist.
And after working together across The Aviator, Gangs of New York, The Departed, Shutter Island and The Wolf of Wall Street, news that DiCaprio and Scorsese could potentially reunite for a sixth time – in the breathless world of comic book movies, no less – has transformed The Joker from a fairly divisive idea to one of the most talked about DC projects in the industry. »

Warner Bros. would love to see Leonardo DiCaprio as the Joker in the studio’s planned origin tale, according to sources. But it’s way too early to predict whether the versatile star might be interested, and no offer has been made.
It makes sense that a Scorsese-led Joker would look to involve DiCaprio — they’ve teamed on “Gangs of New York,” “The Aviator,” best picture winner “The Departed,” “Shutter Island,” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
But the Joker project could be a real longshot since DiCaprio, who hasn’t made a movie since he won best actor for “The Revenant,” has been attached to numerous projects that never got made, some with Scorsese. The duo are currently in development on “Devil in the White City” and “Killers of the Flower Moon »
