Film News Roundup: Annette Bening to Star in Christoph Waltz’s Directorial Debut ‘Georgetown’
In today’s film news roundup, Annette Bening has joined Christoph Waltz and Vanessa Redgrave in “Georgetown,” Lionsgate has acquired U.S. rights to Roland Emmerich’s World War II movie “Midway,” and Film Movement has bought three documentaries.

Casting

Annette Bening has joined Christoph Waltz and Vanessa Redgrave in the crime drama “Georgetown.” The film, which is shooting in Canada, marks Waltz’s directorial debut.

The project, based on the New York Times Magazine article by Franklin Foer, centers on Albrecht Muth (played by Waltz), an eccentric social climber who seduced and married a wealthy older widow, Viola Drath, portrayed by Redgrave. Muth and Drath entered the top political circles as they threw lavish events, with Muth lying extensively about his background — which came to light after Drath was found murdered in 2011 at their home in Georgetown.

Muth was 26 when he married the 71-year-old Drath in 1990. He was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to 50 years

Blu-ray Review: Return Of The Living Dead 3 Vestron Video Collector’s Series

  • DailyDead
Given just how lousy with zombies our current pop culture climate has become over the last decade or so, it’s hard to remember that the walking dead were out of favor as recently as the 1990s. The decade had a few bright spots (Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive, aka Braindead is a stone-cold classic, as is Michele Soavi’s Dellamorte Dellamore, aka Cemetery Man), but on the whole there weren’t a lot of memorable zombie movies coming out of the Clinton decade. Well, along comes the new Vestron Video Collector’s Series Blu-ray of Brian Yuzna’s Return of the Living Dead 3 to remind us that at least one more terrific zombie movie did come out in the ’90s, but many horror fans slept on it. Hopefully that changes now.

Pretty much a sequel in name only, 1993’s Return of the Living Dead 3 bears almost no

Denise Richards: examining her recent straight-to-dvd movies

Kirsten Howard Jul 19, 2016

From Blonde And Blonder and You Stupid Man, through to Edmond: we go through the recent straight-to-dvd films of Denise Richards...

So far in this series of pieces that look at the straight-to-dvd or VOD movies of some of our favourite actors who have fallen on hard times, we’ve only looked at men (to date: Bruce Willis, Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and John Travolta). That’s because, mostly, actresses find themselves almost completely out of the game once they hit 30ish – an unnecessary full stop that a lot of us would like to see removed in the future.

Denise Richards, sadly, is no different. After marrying a man she found herself in an abusive relationship with, her career climb stumbled and she was forced back down into TV roles, where she’s currently still putting in the hours.

Richards had a sparkling, American Dream-like start in life.

6 Ways To Die – The Review

Directed and written by Nadeem Soumah with Vinnie Jones, Michael Rene Walton, Viveca A Fox, Bai Ling

A mysterious Englishman who calls himself “John Doe” (Vinnie Jones) hires a professional hit man. The target? A drug cartel leader named Sonny “Sundown” Garcia (Michael Rene Walton), a rich, powerful and dangerous career criminal who “stole everything I ever loved” according to John Doe.

The movie begins with the hit taking place, in full view of a crowd of dancers at Sonny’s night club. This occurs, even though the hit man states he does not make any hits in front of witnesses. John Doe also insists the hit be done with a particular weapon that Sonny used in the past, the incident the movie keeps flashing back to, which “took everything I ever loved.” This is all about revenge you see.

'They walk. They talk. They kill.' Director Stuart Gordon talks 'Dolls'

'They walk. They talk. They kill.' Director Stuart Gordon talks 'Dolls'
Stuart Gordon shot his first film, 1985's much beloved gorefest Re-Animator, in Los Angeles but then decamped to Italy to shoot Dolls, his second movie and second terror tale. While there, Gordon was also taken down a peg, or 12, by a local craftsman. "They didn’t shoot sound in Italy, they weren't used to that," says Gordon, whose other directing credits include From Beyond, Castle Freak, and 2005's William H. Macy-starring Edmond. "I remember there was one day when I was shooting something and there was a carpenter hammering in the background, working on another one of our sets—hammering and sawing.

Blu-ray Review: Re-animator Is A Classic Given Short Shrift In HD

Re-Animator is the film that launched a thousand careers in B-movies. Stuart Gordon made his feature film directing debut adapting this H.P. Lovecraft story for the big screen, he would later go on to direct such challenging films as Edmond and Stuck in addition to a healthy pile of sci-fi and horror goodies. Stars Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton also made names for themselves through solid performances in Re-Animator. Combs would go on to further refine his mad scientist/well-heeled maniac persona in other the Re-Animator sequels, as well as supporting roles in big studio horror flicks like the House on Haunted Hill remake and Peter Jackson's The Frighteners, as well as a bunch of other Lovecraft adaptations, even playing the man himself in the elusive...

Hp Lovecraft: an appreciation

Ryan looks back at the work of author Hp Lovecraft, the writer behind Guillermo del Toro’s forthcoming At The Mountains Of Madness

In his own lifetime, Howard Philips Lovecraft was a virtual unknown. His stories appeared in pulp magazines such as Weird Tales and Astounding Stories, alongside contemporary genre writers such as Robert E Howard and August Derleth, and wouldn’t be published in book form until long after Lovecraft’s death.

It was only after Hp Lovecraft's passing in 1937 that his work began to be reassessed, and even then his distinctive, verbose prose was scorned by the literary establishment. The critic, Edmund Wilson, infamously dismissed the author's tales as "bad taste and bad art" in 1945.

Gradually, however, Lovecraft's reputation grew, and he's now rightly recognised as one of the 20th century's most important American authors. In 2005, a collection of Lovecraft's stories was collected together for The Library Of America,

Not only is April experienced in front of the she she is killed behind the scenes too and has experience editing and with camera operation. Keep reading to ready my entire interview with April.

How did you get your start in acting?  

I guess the first acting I did would be in elementary school. The choir class would put on little 'musicals'. I don't remember the details, but we'd do a couple acts then sing a song. Do a couple more, sing a song. Small assemblys, that type of thing.

You have done a little bit of everything which do you prefer more,
