This is where we start a war. We'll lose friends, and cause controversy. Because somewhere on this list below is something you're dying to see. In fact, you might be fanatical about some of these inclusions (Christopher Nolan fans, we're staring straight at you). But it's inevitable. And unavoidable. Hollywood is releasing hundreds of movies in 2014. Some of them will be good. Some of them will be bad. And some will be box office disasters. In compiling this list, we're not declaring that all, or even any, of these movies will be unwatchable. Some will be quite good. Maybe even a masterpiece or a classic in the making. There are a few that we're desperate to see ourselves. We really want them to succeed. But every movie here is a risk taker. And some of this shit? Hollywood should clearly know better. These are the 14 Biggest Potential Bombs of 2014.
A couple more roles have been filled for Season 2 of "The Following," one of which is recurring with the other being a guest star. Read on for the details of who from Paranormal Activity 2 and "The Killing" will next be seen on the popular Fox series.
Per The Wrap, Sprague Grayden (pictured right; PA2, "Low Winter Sun") will join "The Following" in a recurring role, and Gregg Henry (pictured below; "The Killing," "Hung," Slither) has signed on to guest star.
Grayden will play Carrie Cooke, a tabloid reporter turned best-selling author. She wrote a book on the Carroll/Havenport events and continues to investigate and write about the killings, which puts her at odds with Ryan Hardy.
Producers are keeping Grayden’s first appearance and number of episodes under wraps.
Henry will guest star as Dr. Strauss, a distinguished doctor who may have a dark secret.

After the success of Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World it seems Marvel Studios can do no wrong in the eyes of the audience. And next year they will be putting that to the test with their biggest gamble to date in Guardians Of The Galaxy from James Gunn (Slither, Super). The film has attracted an impressive amount of talent and the project is looking more and more interesting as the days go by. You can read what Saldana said to MTV about her role as Gamora below:
‘A new way to view superheroes. I love sometimes the consistency of what the classics have left behind, but I need innovation. You can only have so much of, ‘I’ll save you!’ After a while, »

There are myriad reasons why some horror films don’t make a connection with moviegoers, and in turn fail to live up to the expectations set by the studios that financed them. Sometimes it’s because a movie simply isn’t any good, but often a film’s lack of box office success can be attributed to circumstances beyond the filmmakers’ control: factors like lack of appropriate promotion, bad marketing, poorly-timed release dates and unduly harsh critical reception can work against an otherwise decent film's success. There are countless well-made movies that get a bad rap for one reason or another, and we think it’s a damn shame that moviegoers often miss out. Because we love an underdog story, we're showing our appreciation for these under-appreciated horror titles by highlighting five of our favorites... Slither I cannot say enough good things about Slither. It cleverly blends comedy with horror, »

Every year, we here at Sound On Sight celebrate the month of October with 31 Days of Horror; and every year, I update the list of my favourite horror films ever made. Last year, I released a list that included 150 picks. This year, I’ll be upgrading the list, making minor alterations, changing the rankings, adding new entries, and possibly removing a few titles. I’ve also decided to publish each post backwards this time for one reason: the new additions appear lower on my list, whereas my top 50 haven’t changed much, except for maybe in ranking. I am including documentaries, short films and mini series, only as special mentions – along with a few features that can qualify as horror, but barely do.

Next year’s full of potentially great films, so to help, here’s a list of 25 movies we're most looking forward to in 2014...
These lists of anticipated forthcoming movies have become an annual fixture by now, and as ever, our selection has been tricky to whittle down. In restricting our list to just 25, we've tried to create a mix of the high-profile and the less obvious. Movies such as Non-Stop, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Big Hero Six and Edge Of Tomorrow came close but didn't quite make the cut, even though they have much to offer for their own reasons.
Furthermore, given the number of films competing for space, we've left the latest chapters of The Hunger Games and The Hobbit off the list. We're keen to see both, but we're wary of taking up slots with movies »
It’s that wonderful, frightful, cool and creepy time of year again, when everything including the leaves on the trees are dying and our taste buds are craving sugary sweets and pies made from the guts of our jack-o-lanterns. It’s October, which means Halloween is nearly upon us! Get you costumes completed, your home haunts constructed and your candy collected for trick’r treaters, because you have to make time to watch some of the scariest movies this time of year.
In an effort to assist you in your cinematic scare-fest, we’ve come up with a list of the scariest movies to watch on Halloween… with one caveat. We have excluded virtually all “slasher” flicks. Why? Well, let’s just say we all know them, we all love them on some level, but really… don’t we all want something more in our scary movies? In honor of »

The fate of Los Angeles — and maybe mankind — rests in the hands of a single lowly exterminator in “Big Ass Spider!,” an exceedingly good-natured Z-grade creature feature that finds Angel City under attack by a quite literal spider from Mars. Made with tongue welded firmly to cheek, loads of affection for big rubbery monsters, and some surprisingly accomplished bargain-basement effects, director Mike Mendez’s fifth schlock feature is strictly for genre buffs who’ll delight at the sight of Troma impresario Lloyd Kaufman get devoured by a giant arachnid — as well as anyone who found “Sharknado” a bit too highbrow for their taste. Many worse ways to spend 80 minutes can easily be imagined.
Surely when Walter Scott wrote “Oh, what a tangled web we weave,” he wasn’t picturing a Kong-sized black widow capable of cocooning an adult human in a matter of seconds — or tearing one to pieces with its telephone-pole pincers. »

Every great superhero movie needs a fantastic villain, such as Lee Pace's Ronan the Accuser in Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. The actor wrapped production on the Phase Two sequel earlier this month, and he recently shared how much fun he had playing this psychotic menace.
"He's a f---ing psycho! He's a real monster. I've had the best time playing this character. I'm glad its all on film and I never thought I could be so nuts in it!"
"James Gunn is just putting together a phenomenal movie and I've had the best time working with him on it. And yea we've made a monster of an alien!"
It's a couple of months away still but Francis Lawrence's ('I Am Legend') sci-fi action sequel 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' isn't dwindling just yet. And let's hope this new international trailer revealed by Yahoo! Movies helps heat things up once more. Jennifer Lawrence ('Silver Linings Playbook'), Josh Hutcherson ('Red Dawn'), Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson ('Seven Psychopaths'), Philip Seymour Hoffman ('Red Dragon'), Elizabeth Banks ('Slither'), Jena Malone ('The Ruins'), Sam Claflin, Liam Hemsworth, Stephanie Leigh Schlund, Donald Sutherland ('Don't Look Now'), Toby Jones ('The Mist'), Lenny Kravitz and heaps more all star in the follow-up. Check out the new trailer below. »
Having witnessed the awesome footage from James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, I have no doubt the Slither and Super director was the right man for the job for the strange Marvel universe that many believe is the studios riskiest project yet. The hilarious Chris Pratt looks an natural fit as the charismatic, cocky half human/half alien Peter Quill (aka Star Lord), while his fellow Guardians and the villains include some high-profile names.
As for the supporting cast, we already now Gunn frequenters Gregg Henry and Michael Rooker are involved in some capacity but the filmmaker has spoken about others included and that you shouldn’t believe everything you read on the internet.
IMDb is not always correct. Even right now I believe it contains misinformation. A complete cast list will not be released until closer before release – and we are not currently releasing a list of all the characters in the film. »

Now that principal photography on the Guardians of the Galaxy film has proceeded the halfway mark, Twitter has revealed subtle but intriguing updates surrounding the Marvel production. With a series of tweets from director James Gunn, cast members Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan and Sean Gunn, new minor additions to the motley crew are revealed to be Slither's Gregg Henry, Super's Stephen Blackehart and English actor Ralph Ineson. The latter, who's best known for his role in the Harry Potter series, was spotted on set last month alongside Michael Rooker. Check it out: Nights are getting cold in London. I think @DaveBautista & @zoesaldana might be regretting Drax & Gamora’s skimpy outfit choices. #gotg— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) September 6, 2013 Hope the stuff we’re shooting tonight is as fun to watch as it is to shoot! @prattprattpratt @blackehart @Thejudgegunn @Simonlikes #gotg— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) September 2, 2013 During production, my dreams »
Instead of heaps of more images and character posters it seems Lionsgate is satisfied this time around to simply chuck on all The Quarter Quell participants onto one single new banner for 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'. It comes less than 2 months ahead of its 22 November opening and features Jennifer Lawrence ('Silver Linings Playbook') and Josh Hutcherson ('Red Dawn') amongst many others. The Francis Lawrence helmed sci-fi action sequel also stars Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson ('Seven Psychopaths'), Philip Seymour Hoffman ('Red Dragon'), Elizabeth Banks ('Slither'), Jena Malone ('The Ruins'), Sam Claflin, Liam Hemsworth, Stephanie Leigh Schlund, Donald Sutherland ('Don't Look Now'), Toby Jones ('The Mist'), Lenny Kravitz and many more.

It’s now official! Following a number of whispers over the last few weeks, Oscar-nominee Bradley Cooper has signed on as the voice of hyper-active otherworldly critter Rocket Raccoon in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, currently being shot in London’s Shepperton Studios. He joins an already superb cast in the science-fiction action adventure being writen and directed by Super and Slither’s James Gunn.
The following official Marvel press release has just surfaced.
Rocket Raccoon has finally found his voice!
Cooper has previously starred in “Silver Linings Playbook,” for which he was nominated for an Oscar®, “Limitless,” “Place Beyond the Pines” and the “Hangover” trilogy, the latter of which has grossed $1.4 billion globally. He will next be seen in “American Hustle” which will reunite him with “Silver Linings Playbook” director David O. Russell. “Guardians of the Galaxy” will mark Cooper’s first voiceover work.Academy Award-nominated actor Bradley Cooper »

When Bradley Cooper isn't starring in Oscar fare like "Silver Linings Playbook," "American Hustle" and "American Sniper," he's voicing a gun-totting space raccoon? Maybe, at least according to a new report from Latino Review. Per the site, Cooper has been offered the voice role of Rocket Raccoon in "Guardians of the Galaxy," James Gunn's wild, genre-bending superhero movie that may also feature Vin Diesel as the voice of an alien tree.
HuffPost Entertainment contacted Cooper's representatives for comment on the rumor; this piece will be updated if and when they respond.
That Cooper would make the jump to a superhero movie is slightly unexpected, if only because he's managed to stay away from that genre thus far in his career. (He was, it should be noted, on the list of contenders to play Green Lantern in the Warner Bros. flop "Green Lantern"; Ryan Reynolds eventually grabbed that role.)

Director James Gunn revealed on his Facebook page earlier today that Tyler Bates has come aboard to compose the score for Guardians of the Galaxy. Take a look at the director's message below, revealing that the musician has already recording portions of the score during production.
"Grateful to be working with my favorite composer, Tyler Bates, on Guardians of the Galaxy. Unlike most films, Tyler writes huge chunks of the score first so that I can actually film to the music. During action scenes and huge dramatic moments we blare the score on set so that the cast, crew, and camera can move in harmony with the music. Music is often an afterthought in film, but never for us. And everything Tyler's done so far has been amazing!"
Director James Gunn revealed on his Facebook page today that composer Tyler Bates will be providing the score for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy . Gunn also revealed that Bates likes to write some of the music for the film beforehand allowing Gunn to play the music on set for the cast and crew during the filming of scenes. Bates has been a longtime collaborator with Gunn, having worked on both of his previous feature films Slither and Super . He's also no stranger to comic book films having provided the music for 2011's Conan the Barbarian , Watchmen , and 300. Guardians of the Galaxy features an unlikely cast of characters who must team up in order to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions. Directed by James Gunn, the August 1, 2014 »
A lot of directors do multiple takes to make sure they get exactly what they are looking for in an actor’s performance. They may even shoot the scene with different tones and dialogue to see what works best when editing. Stanley Kubrick is notorious for putting his actors through rigorous days shooting a single scene.
Now, I’m not comparing writer/director Jame Gunn to Kubrick, but, for at least one scene in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, he does seem to be channeling his inner Kurbrick.
Need proof? Here Gunn’s tweet from earlier today:
“Today I worked @DaveBautista & @prattprattpratt harder than anyone since @Michael_Rooker on Slither. 22 takes of a 1 shot action sequence!”
Gunn and his crew are hard at work on Guardians of the Galaxy, and I would say the director is making sure he gets exactly what he needs to make the best possible film he can make. »

Yesterday, I reported on how James Gunn said the Guardians Of The Galaxy footage would not get officially released online. Now he just Tweeted about some of that footage we desperately want to see. Today I worked @DaveBautista & @prattprattpratt harder than anyone since @Michael_Rooker on Slither. 22 takes of a 1 shot action sequence!— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) August 20, 2013 If you aren't following the Guardians Of The Galaxy director and cast on Twitter, then you are missing out on a lot of cool behind the scenes updates like the one above, and other cool things related to Marvel's upcoming movie. How about... like Chris Pratt wishing co-star Dave Bautista a happy birthday? #Ff My #Gotg costar @DaveBautista Who is awfully kind, open and humble for a man who could easily kill you with one hand.— chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) August 16, 2013 »
