Film Review: The Worst Horror Film of 2014, ‘Ouija’ is ‘Mama’ From 11 Narcoleptic Producers

24 October 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Out of respect for the filmmakers and actors, I don’t walk out on films. I hold true to that even when I know in the first 10 minutes the film’s not for me. Perhaps the second act could surprise me. Maybe the whole film is a flop but it redeems itself with shock and awe in the last 5 minutes.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

But let’s be honest: As much as you can tell yourself you’ll walk into “Ouija” with an open mind, it’s impossible to have high hopes about this latest “horror” film in a tiresome string of formulaic attempts. You’re not expecting Oscar-caliber performances and that’s why these kinds of films can get away with casting no one you’ve ever heard of.

This time, Olivia Cooke takes center stage. You might remember her if you saw this year’s sci-fi flop “The Signal” with Laurence Fishburne. »

On seeing 'The Terminator' for the first time: They don't make 'em like they used to

24 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

This is what I thought I knew about The Terminator—released 30 years ago this weekend—before I watched it for the first time a few nights ago: - The title character is played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. - He's a robot who's been sent back in time to do... something. - He's a bad guy. Except they keep making movies about him, so maybe he's a good guy. Or he starts as one, then becomes the other? Regardless, he is definitely either good or bad. Yep. That much I know. - Linda Hamilton plays Sarah Connor, a badass with great arms »

Review: Bland, Horrible 'Ouija' is Part of a Bigger Hollywood Problem

24 October 2014 8:51 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's an odd correlation between cineplex screens and toy-store shelves these days. The movies-being-turned-into-toys-being-turned-into-movies cycle is hardly a 2014 revelation. But, with Michael Bay's most recent Transformers movie scraping the well in search for content, it finally felt like that synergistic cycle was a foregone conclusion. Entertainment and, God forbid, story were afterthoughts to the dollars and cents the film ultimately pulled in. I use Transformers as the example, because Bay's horror-movie production company, Platinum Dunes, has a product in which they'd like you to invest. It's called Ouija, and it's awful. Saying it's "awful" is even putting it to mildly and strikes at the movie itself when it's really just part of a bigger problem. Put bluntly, Ouija is a manifestation of just about everything wrong with the way a lot of movies are made these days. Movies aren't even made nowadays. In 2014 properties are purchased and branded for the consumer, »

How Hasbro Wants to Take the Financial Reins of its Movies Starting with ‘My Little Pony’

23 October 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After spending the past seven years launching film franchises based on its toys and games like Transformers and G.I. Joe, and setting up other movies like “Monopoly,” “Candy Land” and “Risk,” Hasbro Studios is poised to take the next logical step: financing its own features.

The toymaker has launched Allspark Pictures — a clever nod to “Transformers” — through which it will fully fund and co-finance a slate of films. The projects that will inaugurate the banner are an animated “My Little Pony” movie, the first planned to play theatrically in 2017, and a live-action adaptation of animated series “Jem and the Holograms,” which will sing into theaters on Oct. 23, 2015. Universal will split “Jem’s” budget with Hasbro.

“We have a long history in film, and it’s become a very important part of our content strategy,” says Stephen Davis, president of Burbank-based Hasbro Studios. “We want to use great stories to activate our brands, »

Avengers: Age of Ultron official trailer will make you weep with its sheer beauty

23 October 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron was reportedly leaked on the internet, in poor quality, resulting in Marvel Studios releasing the official version early. It was originally scheduled to debut with Marvel's Agents of Shield, which would have been obvious brand synergy, as well as casting a spotlight on the awesomeness of that show. (Bad Rising Tide! Pop culture reference, sorry.)

But the official trailer is here now, and it's stunning in its melancholy beauty. This is somewhat atypical for a superhero blockbuster, though increasingly common in recent years (c.f. Iron Man 3, The Dark Knight trilogy). With the trailer for The Avengers, director Joss Whedon seemed to be taking after the epitome of blockbuster bombast, Michael Bay (Transformers); whereas with the trailer for the follow-up, Avengers: Age of Ultron, he seems to be taking after the master of visual and emotional film-making poetry, Zhang Yimou (House of Flying Daggers »

'Transformers' sound mixers reveal how they kept your ears from caving in

23 October 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Greg. P Russell and Scott Millan are masters of an art that can be difficult to appreciate. Great sound mixers take essential tracks — dialogue, score, and effects, all crafted and fighting for ear space — and meld them together to match, or enhance, the visuals on screen. In a film like “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” the balancing act is like a Philippe Petit tightrope walk, one rogue robo-braam tipping the controlled chaos soundscape into cacophony. In a new installment of Variety’s Artisans series, senior VP Tim Grey talks to Russell and Millan about the fourth “Transformers” and Michael Bay’s increasingly difficult audio challenge. “As Michael would testify, sound is 50 percent of his films,” says Russell in the video. A 16-time Oscar-nominated sound mixer, Russell has fit each of Bay’s “Transformers” films between work like “Skyfall” and “Alice in Wonderland.” “Age of Extinction” marked Millan’s first brush with Optimus Prime. »

Spooky! Megan Fox Is Covered in Blood While Posing With Bald James Franco

22 October 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

While Halloween may still be more than a week again, it looks like Megan Fox is already getting in to the spooky spirit!  James Franco took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a shot with the 28-year-old stunner, in which she's sporting a long white dress which is covered in blood.  Giving the camera a haunting stare, the Transformers star also wears a white boa around her neck and pouts her lips in the pic. Meanwhile, Franco is seated on the staircase beside his pal, wrapping his arm around the bloodied beauty while sporting a bald head and bushy mustache.  "Megan Fox is the best!" the Pineapple Express star captioned the photo.  No word yet why Fox is sporting the »

As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.

Snapchat Scares Up Advertising Business with ‘Ouija’

19 October 2014 11:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal Pictures became the first company to distribute an advertisement on Snapchat, using the social-media app to promote “Ouija” over the weekend.

A 20-second trailer for the upcoming horror film based on Hasbro Studio’s boardgame appeared in the “Recent Updates” section of users’ accounts on the app, with a sponsored icon. The ad disappears after it’s viewed or within 24 hours. It’s unclear how much Universal paid for the plug.

As with any update, users choose whether to view the video or photos, but many of those who did took to Twitter to talk about the video — some approving what they saw, while others were irritated by the promo that suddenly appeared on their accounts.

Snapchat, however, has said sponsored ads were coming to its 100 million users.

“We need to make money,” Snapchat put it simply in a company blog post. “Advertising allows us to support our service »

Watch Transformers: Age Of Extinction Get Hit With A Hilarious 30 Minute Assault

17 October 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What's wrong with Transformers: Age of Extinction? So much, apparently, that it took Cinema Sins two videos to pick it all apart. Here's Part 1 of what amounts to about a half hour's worth of assault on the Michael Bay film... Transformers: Age Of Extinction is a movie that you either love or you hate. While message boards and movie sites would say the latter is the more likely scenario, the box office returns speak to the former talking point at a higher volume. That's right folks, it's officially harder to tell whether the world loves or hates the Transformers movies than it is to tell which party has the real majority in American politics. Amid all of the confusion of which side rules the day is Jeremy from Cinema Sins: a man who didn't let a stupid thing like Bronchitis get in the way of crafting now one, but Two, »

A Gentle Reminder That Shia Is Still a Pretty Attractive Dude

16 October 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

While a lot of us can't help but remember Shia Labeouf as a goofy teenager on Disney's Even Stevens, it's worth noting that he also had one hell of a heyday as an adult actor (please see: Transformers and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps). Sure, his career may have taken a few weird turns over the past couple of years but there's no denying that Shia is still one very attractive dude, and he's making his way back to superstardom in the WWII drama Fury with Brad Pitt. We're looking back on Shia's hottest moments - before the plagiarism scandals, paper bag mask, performance art, and Cabaret arrest - in order to welcome him back to the big screen. Keep reading to see them all now, and don't hesitate to let yourself swoon. Source: Getty / James Coldrey »
