Netflix’s Lost In Space Series Adds Parker Posey as Dr. Smith

23 November 2016 9:22 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It looks like Parker Posey will climb aboard the Jupiter 2, as the actress has reportedly joined Netflix's Lost in Space remake series to play a key role familiar to fans of the original show.

Deadline reports that Posey (Scream 3, Blade: Trinity, Louie, Clockwatchers, Best in Show) will play Dr. Smith, a character who was the initial antagonist and (eventual) source of occasional comic relief portrayed by Jonathan Harris in the original series, which aired from 1965–1968 on CBS. Fans of the show will remember Dr. Smith as someone who set out to sabotage the Robinson family on their space voyage aboard the Jupiter 2 (originally referred to as the Gemini 12). No specific details about Posey's version of Dr. Smith have been revealed at this time.

Season one of the new Lost in Space series will consist of ten episodes and is slated to premiere in 2018 on Netflix. Neil Marshall (The Descent, »

Neil Marshall Discusses the ‘Doomsday’ Sequel We’ll Never See

14 November 2016 4:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Doomsday is the only movie director Neil Marshall has made with a sequel in mind. Unfortunately, we’re never going to see that sequel. We’ve known that since the film underperformed at the box office in 2008. The Descent and Game of Thrones director thankfully got to stuff a lot of ideas in the first Doomsday, a movie that proudly wears its influences on its sleeve, […]

The Troll Hunter remake is not moving forward

11 November 2016 6:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2013, it was announced that Chris Columbus’ 1942 Pictures production company had snapped up the remake rights to André Øvredal’s rather fantastic found footage monster movie Troll Hunter, tapping Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) to direct.

Since then, we’ve heard nothing about the planned remake, and it seems that it is no longer moving forward, with director Øvredal revealing to Birth.Movies.Death that Marshall’s busy schedule may have killed the project.

“I don’t know exactly [what happened],” said Øvredal. “I was very happy with what I read; I never communicated with anybody about it, but I read on-line that Neil Marshall was attached to direct it, and I was like, ‘Ok, I can get behind that,’ and then suddenly it didn’t happen. I believe that just after signing up for Troll Hunter, Neil got too busy with Game of Thrones, and that’s what stopped »

The 'Trollhunter' Remake Is Probably Never Happening

8 November 2016 4:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Back in 2011 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone director Chris Columbus optioned the rights to the fantastic fantasy movie Trollhunter. Columbus wanted to produce an English language remake of the Norwegian movie about a guy whose secret government job sees him protecting his nation from trolls, big and small. At one point Neil Marshall (The Descent, Doomsday) was even attached to direct it. Things were looking up. And then radio silence until today's news, which is a bummer for anyone looking forward to an English language version. It's not happening. Original Trollhunter director Andre Øvredal broke the news to Birth.Movies.Death.. Columbus' original option on the film ended, with the rights going back to the original filmmakers. And...

From 'Babadook' to 'Raw': The Rise of the Modern Female Horror Filmmaker

26 October 2016 12:42 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Female horror fans are hardly unicorns. Quite the opposite – we go to the movies to get scared, often in greater numbers than men. Female horror directors aren't mythical beings either, even though it can sometimes feel this way. But in fact, the last few years have seen an exciting wave of horror films helmed by women who haven't merely joined the rank-and-file as encouraging statistics. Instead, movies like Jennifer Kent's The Babadook or Karyn Kusama's The Invitation have helped elevate the genre by opening it up to stories that unsettle audiences in new, »

'Westworld' Recap: Player Haters

16 October 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Three episodes deep into Westworld, it's become clear that there’s a problem with the user interface. Theoretically, our deepest interest in this increasingly dark sci-fi parable should be with the characters best capable of sustaining it: the humans. After all, the guests and the staff of the theme park are the ones with actual, honest-to-god (or honest-to-Darwin) consciousness. They've lead real lives with real experiences, instead of having fake memories uploaded into their brains. Their emotions can't be switched off with a command. Their bodies can't heal from fatal »

‘Blair Witch’ review [Tiff ’16]

11 September 2016 10:13 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Blair Witch review: 17 years after the debut of the ground-breaking original, Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett attempt to re-ignite the franchise.

Blair Witch review by Paul Heath, Toronto International Film Festival 2016.

Up until just a couple of months ago, Blair Witch looked like it would be just another woods-set horror movie – even though it boasted the supreme talents of director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett – the guys who brought us You’re Next and The Guest. Then the San Diego Comic-Con happened and Lionsgate dropped the bombshell in re-titling the film, calling it the aforementioned Blair Witch. A synopsis followed, and rather than the film being a remake of the 1999 classic, it would actually be a second sequel set nearly twenty years after the ground-breaking original. The Internet went wild.

The film is set in the present day, two decades since Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard and Michael C. Williams »

Netflix Picks Up "Lost In Space" Series Reboot

29 June 2016 3:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Streaming giant Netflix has handed out a ten-episode series order for "Lost In Space," the reimagined contemporary reboot of Irwin Allen's classic 1960s sci-fi series from Legendary Television.

Zack Estrin ("Prison Break") will serve as showrunner on the series which was hatched by feature scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless ("Dracula Untold," "The Last Witch Hunter")

Like the original show, and the critically derided 1998 film reboot, the story centers on the Robinson family who are forced to come together in a time of crisis.

Stranded light years from their intended destination, they find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and also their own personal demons. Equal parts family drama and sci-fi adventure, Netflix dubs the new series "a survival story for the ages."

"The Descent" and "Game of Thrones" helmer Neil Marshall is set to direct multiple episodes of the series with a worldwide premiere in 2018 planned.

'Game of Thrones': Inside Four of the Biggest Battles

20 June 2016 11:44 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Blackwater." "The Watchers on the Wall." "Hardhome." "The Battle of the Bastards." It's rare enough for characters on a TV show to become household names, but on Game of Thrones, all it takes is a major battle for an episode title to lodge into pop-culture consciousness – like a sword plunged through steel armor.

So far, HBO's smash-hit series has served up a quartet of colossal clashes: the episode-spanning fights for King's Landing and Castle Black that served as climaxes for Seasons Two and Four, and the shorter but no less »

You Need to Turn Up the Dial for Dark Signal and this Terrifying Trailer

Tagline: "Fear the Returned." The first trailer for Edward Evers-Swindell's (Infestation) Dark Signal has hit the air waves. The film, partially developed by Neil Marshall (The Descent), involves the spirit of a murdered girl. Sometimes, the dead still have a reason to stay behind. The film stars Siwan Morris, Gareth David-Lloyd and Joanna Ignaczewska. And, this horror film, from Wales, looks to blend several different stories together in this thrilling clip. The film involves at least two separate stories. Single mother Kate (Ignaczewska) is entangled with a desperate robbery plan, which leads her out into the wilderness. Here, something emerges from the dark woods. Meanwhile, at a local radio station, two broadcasters are sending out their last radio show. Their special guest is a local medium. And, the spirits they churn up have their own disturbed story to tell. The trailer for Dark Signal is a good one. The »
