‘Dunkirk’ Cast: Where You’ve Seen Christopher Nolan’s Ensemble Before
Dunkirk” is finally upon us after months of anticipation, and it’s clear the long wait has been worth it.

Unlike Nolan’s recent star-driven efforts like “Inception” and “Interstellar,” “Dunkirk” features an eclectic mix of relative newcomers, Oscar winners and the director’s reliable collaborators. Getting a blend of known and unknown talent was crucial for Nolan, as including too many stars would’ve distracted from the urgent nature of the story. In following mostly fresh faces, Nolan is

Beauty vs Beast: Franchise First Class

Jason from Mnpp here hoping everyone here in the States had a good holiday weekend and outside the States then just a plain good weekend, period -- I spent a good three hours (including something like half an hour of trailers) of my weekend in the theater watching the new X-Men movie, as did a few of you (not enough to make the studio happy though) and I gotta say I agree with Nat's take on it - mediocre stuff that needed to embrace its silliness more often. I'd love for just one superhero movie to be about something other than superpowers being the worst burden in all the world, ya know?

Anyway I found myself thinking a lot about Jennifer Lawrence during and after the film - god she seemed miserable, didn't she? She delivered her lines with all the passion of a smurf cadaver. That said I wouldn't

Beauty vs Beast: Cillian Time

Howdy and Happy Monday, folks, Jason from Mnpp here with your "Beauty vs Beast" for the week - this time around we're wishing the great and still somehow under-rated Cillian Murphy a happy 40th birthday! He hits the milestone on Wednesday, and we couldn't be happier to watch him age - his smooth-skinned preternatural prettiness was kind of too much to look at once upon a time. Time has made him seem more human, less alien and terrifying, which on the one hand is a loss, but I think that he's a great enough actor that it's one he can overcome with ease.

Anyway in his honor we're stepping back to a role that, contrary to everything I just said, showed him at his most human and his most terrifying all at once, with Wes Craven's terrifically entertaining 2005 thriller Red Eye. Cillian Murphy plays Jackson Rippner (yes really!), the

Silver Scream Fest: An all-star tribute to Wes Craven

Silver Scream Fest: An all-star tribute to Wes Craven
Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp, and producer Marianne Maddalena graced the stage of our Silver Scream Fest in Santa Rosa, Calif., to pay tribute to Wes Craven, the filmmaker who changed all their lives and the face of horror cinema. The three had a comfortable rapport, having known each other for decades at this point.

When asked by moderator Neil Pearlmutter who the real Craven was, Englund graciously deferred to Maddalena, because, while he and Langenkamp had worked with him as actors on several projects, Maddalena had been his right-hand man for years. Maddalena said that when she interviewed to be his assistant, “I told him I wanted to be a producer. He did everything he could and two years later, I was a producer on a film called Shocker.”

She then related an anecdote that illustrated his sense of humor. He loaned her a screener of What’S Eating Gilbert Grape?

The Unusual Career of First-Time Oscar Nom Rachel McAdams

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Rachel McAdams earned the first Oscar nomination of her career last week for her role as a Boston Globe reporter in director Tom McCarthy’s journalism drama, Spotlight. The 37-year-old actress has had an interesting career, flirting with bonafide movie star status but never quite reaching the heights of box office draws such as Scarlett Johansson.

Still, her resume is littered with collaborations with big-name stars and respected directors. Often seen as a rom-com or love story drama star, looking back at McAdams roster of films shows that the actress has had a much more diverse career then the public perception would imply.

Now, dead-center in a best supporting actress race with no clear front runner, in which Kate Winslet has won the Golden Globe for Steve Jobs while Swedish breakout Alicia Vikander took home the Critics’ Choice Award for The Danish Girl, McAdams may

Gremlins 3 won't be a remake or reboot

Zach Galligan confirms that Gremlins 3 is still coming - and that it's taking a Jurassic World-style approach...

Gremlins star Zach Galligan has been at London's brilliant Prince Charles Cinema for the past two nights, for the venue's seasonal screenings of the first Gremlins film. And as such, he's been doing Q&As, that have revealed fresh details about the forthcoming planned Gremlins 3 movie.

The last we heard of it was that original writer Chris Columbus was involved, along with Red Eye scribe Carl Ellsworth. Columbus had said earlier in the year that he was looking to Jj Abrams' Star Trek reboot for inspiration. But now it seems that the success of Jurassic World has taught a lesson or two.

"It's not going to be a reboot. It will not be a remake in any way, shape or form", Galligan said. He added that

Remembering Wes Craven

The word craven may mean “cowardly,” but for slasher fans, it’s more appropriately synonymous with fear itself. Director Wes Craven, who died of brain cancer on August 30 at the age of 76, launched not one but two iconic horror franchises: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) and Scream (1996). Though he demonstrated equitable skill with suspense thrillers and even straight dramas (he directed Meryl Streep to an Oscar nod in 1999’s Music of the Heart), Craven was first and foremost a horror master. Like Romero and Carpenter, his name will always carry an inextricable link to the genre.

For the discerning, though, there’s more to be found in Craven’s films than simple slice-and-dice gore (he can’t be held entirely responsible for Nightmare’s first five execrable sequels, as none were directed by him). His debut, 1972’s The Last House on the Left, is a thriller that turns the tables

James Remembers Wes Craven

Usually when someone famous passes away, I write a little thing on Twitter and Facebook, giving a little insight as to why they meant something to me. Be it a film that connected with me, a song that helped me through something tough, a book that I devoured multiple times and a piece or artwork that I could look at until the end of time, always seeing something new. But when it comes to someone like Wes Craven passing away, it feels as if I’m in an awful nightmare and there’s no Dream Warriors to save me and Freddy Krueger isn’t the wisecracking asshole but instead just death himself.

Wes Craven was one of the first filmmakers that I connected with at a young age. Of course, Freddy Krueger was the 80’s and being a child of the 80’s, I connected with slasher movies. Yes, I was

Wes Craven Remembered: A Master of Modern Horror

Wes Craven Remembered: A Master of Modern Horror
Wes Craven made a comic book movie (“Swamp Thing”) before comic book movies were cool, brazenly transformed an Ingmar Bergman scenario into a vicious grindhouse classic (“The Last House on the Left”), and put Meryl Streep through her paces as she gave violin lessons to inner-city kids — and made an enthusiastic if unsuccessful bid for another Oscar — in “Music of the Heart.”

But the cult-fave filmmaker, who died Sunday at 76, earned his place in the movie history books and a warm spot in the hearts of genre aficionados everywhere with two seminal, sequel-spawning masterworks: “A Nightmare on Elm Street” (1984), the dream-logical, high-voltage shocker that established the fire-scarred, razor-fingered Freddy Krueger as a horror-movie icon; and “Scream” (1996), the seriocomic smash hit, scripted by Kevin Williamson, that impudently played fast and loose with the cliches and conventions of slasher pics like “Halloween” and “Friday the 13th” (and, yes, “A Nightmare on Elm Street

Wes Craven: A Tribute to the 'Scream' King

Wes Craven: A Tribute to the 'Scream' King
It was hard to see writer/director Wes Craven, who died yesterday at the age of 76 after a battle with brain cancer, in person without experiencing a sense of cognitive dissonance. A dignified man with an academic air, kind eyes, and an easy smile, Craven defied the expectations created by his films, which sent character after character to their deaths, usually in imaginative — and always brutal — ways. Could the man expanding on the cultural roots of horror be the same man who turned Johnny Depp into geyser of blood in A Nightmare on Elm Street?

R.I.P. Wes Craven (1939 – 2015)

Some sad news this morning as it has been revealed that American filmmaker and horror maestro Wes Craven has passed away at his home in Los Angeles aged 76 after a battle with brain cancer.

Craven began his career as a director in 1972 with his first feature The Last House of the Left, a controversial rape-revenge thriller that proved to be a box office success. He followed this with films like The Hills Have Eyes, Deadly Blessing and Swamp Thing before introducing the world to the iconic character of Freddy Krueger with 1984’s slasher classic A Nightmare on Elm Street.

He would return to the Elm Street franchise as co-writer on 1987’s A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors as well as directing 1994’s Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. In 1996 he enjoyed huge success and breathed new life into the slasher genre with Scream, returning to direct all three sequels

In memoriam: Wes Craven, 1939-2015

We're sorry to report that Wes Craven, the horror filmmaker behind A Nightmare On Elm Street, has died at the age of 76.

Thereafter, Craven's name became synonymous with the horror genre, despite occasional forays into other arenas, such as the 1978 baseball movie Here Come The Tigers or the 1999 drama Music Of The Heart.

While Craven's earlier horror films became cult classics, it was A Nightmare On Elm Street, which he wrote and directed, that became his first mainstream success. Shot on a budget of less than $2m,

R.I.P. Wes Craven

Legendary horror filmmaker Wes Craven died earlier today in his Los Angeles home of brain cancer.

The 76-year-old director was the iconic man behind the creation of the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Scream" franchises, but he was also a prolific writer, producer and even novelist.

Though dabbling in dramas, Craven was always known for his horror work starting with the controversial "The Last House on the Left" in 1972 which he then followed with the original "The Hills Have Eyes" and its sequel along with the comic book adaptation "Swamp Thing".

The real breakthrough came in 1984 with the first "A Nightmare on Elm Street" which also launched the career of megastar Johnny Depp. He returned to the series twice penning the third entry and then writing and directing the meta-style "New Nightmare".

He also directed a bunch of standalone horror films like "Shocker," "The People Under the Stairs" and
