Ubiquitous character actor Stephen McHattie is always a pleasure to see up on the big screen. From supporting roles in Hollywood films like The Fountain, Watchmen and A History of Violence, to central performances in indie Canadian productions like the criminally underrated Pontypool, and now John Geddes' Hellmouth. At 67, there are entire lifetimes written on his face, even as the rest of him remains lean and spry. McHattie is a conundrum, seemingly young and ancient at the same time, and is perfect here as the reluctant Charlie Baker, caretaker of his own personal abyss. Given more than three quarters of the script to himself in the film, his quivering yet authoritative gravelly voice is beyond reproach. If all of the artifice in the green...

Wolves is a strange beast (Zing) in that half the film feels like a declawed melodrama, while the other half forms a cartoonishly vibrant creature-feature with gore to match. Writer/Director David Hayter (X-Men/Watchmen) transforms the primal nature of familial wolfpacks into a Hatfield/McCoy situation where a town is divided by afflicted bloodlines, mirroring historical territory wars with a horrifically inaccurate twist. Points are awarded for avoiding another Benicio Del Toro debacle that favors CG werewolves over suited mongrels, yet the costumed characters almost look like furry cosplayers at points when focused on for too long, ruining whatever illusion an even hairier Jason Momoa creates. Sometimes you’ll find yourself fearing the ferocious roars of Hayter’s bloodthirsty clan, while other moments will strangely make you want to pet Momoa’s belly while his leg twitches uncontrollably. Who’s a good little werewolf monster!

No one can question David Hayter's geek credentials. Not only is he the one, true voice of Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid game series, but he also voiced Captain America in the '90s Spider-Man TV show and played the titular hero in The Guyver: Dark Hero. Hayter's not just an actor in geek-friendly properties, though. He was writing superhero movies before superhero movies were the big business they are today. Hayter's very first produced screenplay was for X-Men, which led to X-Men 2 and Watchmen. And as he revealed in our below interview, he was even attached to direct his adaptations of Watchmen and Black Widow, though neither of those projects panned out. Instead his directorial debut ended up being Wolves, starring Lucas Till as a freshly...

Metrodome International will debut and screen the film at the Afm.
Hogan and Mullane said: “We’re delighted to be working with Metrodome International on what was a real passion project for us, as we know they feel as strongly as we do about bringing the film to a wide audience.

When was the last time there was a good werewolf moviec Was it An American Werewolf in Londonc Has it really been 33 years since a person changing into a wolf was interestingc Well, David Hayter, screenwriter for the first two X-Men films and Watchmen, makes his directorial debut an attempt to revive an idea that scared audiences for decades... And he fails miserably. Wolves is easily one of the worst films I have seen this year, and it unfortunately never gets into "so bad it's good" territory. It just remains dull from start to finish. Cayden Richards (Lucas Till) has it all. He is the quarterback of his high school football team. He has a gorgeous girlfriend. He also has the ability to change into a wolf. This is a problem which, as of late, has gotten rather out of hand. And by out of hand I mean he attacks »

Following a creative hiccup that resulted in the loss of director Fredrik Bond, the action sequel London Has Fallen is seemingly back on track with Scandinavian director Babak Najafi, director of the Snabba Cash sequel Easy Money II: Hard to Kill, behind the camera. We already knew Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman were all returning from Olympus Has Fallen, and now The Wrap has added a new cast member into the mix with Watchmen and A Nightmare on Elm Street remake star Jackie Earle Haley taking the role of Deputy Chief Mason. What are the odds that he ends up being the main bad guy? We're not sure, but casting an actor like that in what seems like a disposable role certainly raises our eyebrows. In addition, the trade has revealed that other returning cast members from the original film include Melissa Leo as Secretary of Defense Ruth »

Oscar-nominated actor Jackie Earle Haley (“Little Children,” “Watchmen”) has closed a deal to join “London Has Fallen,” the sequel to last year's sleeper hit “Olympus Has Fallen” that's being mounted by Focus Features and Millennium Films, TheWrap has learned. Babak Najafi (“Easy Money II”) is directing the movie, which will reunite original stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Melissa Leo, Angela Bassett and Radha Mitchell.

At its 2014 Digital Content Newfronts presentation, Yahoo announced Sin City Saints, a TV-length series from Arli$$ creator Mike Tollin. Sin City Saints still doesn't have an exact release date, but Yahoo has announced the actors who will make up to show's principal cast, including Andrew Santino, Malin Akerman, and Tom Arnold. Sin City Saints will star Santino (of ABC's Mixology) as the owner of the titular team, a pro basketball franchise based in Las Vegas. A release from Yahoo describes Santino's character as "unpredictable and charismatic," a description reminiscent of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. Ackerman, perhaps best known for her role in Watchmen, will play a legal assistant to the NBA Commissioner. Arnold, who has appeared in dozens of productions over the past 20 years, will play a casino host. As you might expect for a show about basketball, Sin City Saints also features several former NBA players among its cast. »

As far as red-band trailers for movies go, this one for Wolves isn't as red-band as I expected it to be, as there's there's just a bit of CG blood. The movie comes from David Hayter, the writer of X-Men and Watchmen, and stars Jason Momoa and Lucas Till.
As much as I enjoy werewolves, this looks ridiculous. If Lifetime had made a werewolf movie, I imagine it would look something like this.
Popular high school student Cayden Richards wakes from a horrific nightmare, only to realize that he’s living it… He is changing into something vicious, unpredictable and wild. Forced to hit the road after the brutal murder of his parents, Cayden tries to hunt down the truth of what he is. In the remote, mountain town of Lupine Ridge, he discovers others like him — Including the beautiful Angelina, a young woman caught between two ancient clans of »

Swamp Thing #21
Written by Alan Moore
Pencilled by Stephen Bissette
Inked by John Totleben
Colors by Tatjana Wood
Published by DC Comics
If you walked down a street and asked a random passerby to name a comic book writer or artist, they would probably say Stan Lee. After that, they would probably say Alan Moore. Alan Moore is famous for Watchmen, V for Vendetta, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and other books whose film adaptations he has disowned. Before doing these famous and popular comics, he did some work for 2000 Ad,Marvel UK, and Warrior where he wrote Marvelman, which was later changed to Miracleman and was a dark deconstruction of the superhero genre. This dark deconstructive theme continued to Moore’s first work on an American comic: DC Comics’ Saga of the Swamp Thing.

Jason Momoa is probably only a small part of Wolves, the movie from writer/director David Hayter, but he looks like one of the best parts. Hayter jumps from screenwriter (X-Men, Watchmen) and voice actor (he was Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid games until Kiefer Sutherland took over) to feature director. Wolves is about […]

Cayden Richards, 18, has it all: Captain of the high school football team; straight-a student; gorgeous girlfriend. But when he wakes one dark night to find his parents brutally murdered, he is horrified to realize that he is turning into an animal: a wild, savage wolf. Panicked, Cayden runs, determined to find out what is happening to him. His quest leads him to the strange, isolated town of Lupine Ridge, where two clans of wolves are on the brink of war. The opposing clans are lead by Connor, the powerful, pure-blood alpha of a savage pack and John Tollerman, »

If you like your vampire-werewolf action to conform to the highest calibre of cheese, then look no further. The first two trailers for horror action romp, Wolves, have arrived with a distinct whiff of the finest Roquefort.
There’s nothing against a genre pic embracing overused tropes, especially if there’s evidence of self-awareness or a sly nod here and there. Thankfully, that looks to be the case with Wolves.
Written and directed by David Hayter, the film has all the elements in place to secure the title of this fall’s Best Popcorn Flick. The story follows Cayden Richards (Lucas Till), who departs his teenage existence swiftly after he’s considered the chief suspect in his parents’ grisly murder. Arriving in the town of Lupine Ridge (really? that’s almost as obvious as Troll 2‘s Nilbog), he discovers that his “gift” isn’t one he alone holds, as »

With "True Blood" saying goodbye this past summer, if you're looking for more soapy supernatural goodness, made on a limited budget, it looks like the upcoming "Wolves" will do the job. And the first red band trailer is here. Starring Jason Momoa and Lucas Till, and written and directed by David Hayter (the pen behind "Watchmen" and the first two "X-Men" movies), the story follows Cayden Richards, a werewolf who has to go on the run after being falsely accused of murdering his parents, winding up in the not so subtly named town of Lupine Ridge. As you'll see, his troubles don't end there, as he also embarks on a bumpy romance. "Wolves" opens on November 14th and goes VOD on November 16th. Check out the red band and green band trailers below. »

David Hayter, screenwriter on films such as X-Men and Watchmen, is stepping behind the camera to direct Wolves, a sh*tty looking werewolf movie starring Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class) and Jason Momoa ("Game of Thrones"). Today the red band trailer for the upcoming October 16 VOD release has arrived and it looks like something that would have spawned a CW series, not a feature film. Popular high school student Cayden Richards (Till) wakes from a horrific nightmare, only to realize that he's living it... He is changing into something vicious, unpredictable and wild. Forced to hit the road after the brutal murder of his parents, Cayden tries to hunt down the truth of what he is. In the remote, mountain town of Lupine Ridge, he discovers others like him -- Including the beautiful Angelina (Merritt Patterson), a young woman caught between two ancient clans of "wolves". And when he finally »

The name David Hayter may not be known for directing, but he certainly has written his fair share of movies including the first X-men and Zack Snyder's Watchmen. Now, Hayter is making his debut as a director with the action-horror movie Wolves starring Lucas Till and Jason Momoa. We have the first two trailers for the movie, one red band and the other green. While werewolves have forever been a popular subject, they have played second fiddle to vampires and zombies in recent years, which »

A new poster has arrived online for The Imitation Game, director Morten Tyldum’s (Headhunters) upcoming World War II drama, which shifts the attention from Benedict Cumberbatch’s (Sherlock) famed codebreaker Alan Turing to Keira Knightley (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit), who stars as fellow codebreaker Joan Clarke. Check it out…
Read our review here
The Imitation Game is a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain’s most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing. The pioneer of modern-day computing, Turing is credited with cracking the German Enigma code and the film is a nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on. »

David Hayter, writer of the original X-Men and Watchmen, makes his directorial debut this October with the scary new horror thriller Wolves, starring Lucas Till, Jennifer Hale, Merritt Patterson and Jason Momoa in a new take on the werewolf legend. We have a series of exclusive photos that offer a first look at the title monster, along with Lucas Till, also an alum of the X-Men franchise, as he sets out to discover the truth behind an ancient curse.
