And now a couple of new stills from the follow-up to 2009's Norwegian horror comedy 'Dead Snow' have landed online. Wirkola has welcomely headed straight back into the genre after his big-budget action adaptation of 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' which starred Jeremy Renner and hottie Gemma Arterton. 'Dead Snow 2' stars Ingrid Haas ('Scott Pilgrim vs. the World'), Jocelyn Deboer, Vegar Hoel, Stig Frode Henriksen and Martin Starr ('This is the End'). Check out the new images below. »
Like most projects we've reported on today this new comedy horror from co-directors Jonathan Millott and Cary Murnion will also fix itself into the January schedule for its Sundance Film Festival premiere. Comedy/horror 'Cooties' stars Elijah Wood ('Maniac') who is certainly slipping the genre entries under his belt of late. Both he and a group of teachers must fend off a bunch of students taken down by a strange virus only to turn into mindless savages. Rainn Wilson ('The Office'), Alison Pill ('Scott Pilgrim vs. the World'), Jack McBrayer ('30 Rock'), Leigh Whannell ('Saw') and Nasim Pedrad also star and a bunch of new images have arrived. The project will be familiar terriority for Elijah who starred in 'The Faculty' back in 1999 where it was the students facing off against bodysnatched teachers. Leigh Whannell ('Indious Chapter 2' »

Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead stars Martin Starr (This Is the End), Ingrid Haas (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) and Jocelyn Deboer (Inside Amy Schumer) and follows the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack who battles an even larger army of Zombies with the help of The Zombie Squad, a professional gang of zombie killers from the U.S. »

Dead Snow was a surprise hit when it premiered at Sundance several years ago, so it only seems right that its sequel, the horridly titled Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, will rise up at the same cinematic place as its predecessor.
Be sure to keep your eyes on the official 2014 Sundance Film Festival website for more info.
Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead follows the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack who battles an even larger army of Zombies with the help of The Zombie Squad, a professional gang of zombie killers from the U.S.

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.
Wright's Feature Filmography: Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and The World's EndIn this series Team Experience sounds off (individually) on their favorite fringe awards contenders. Here's Michael Cusumano on Edgar Wright
Four features into his career it is clear that Edgar Wright is building a body of work that will end up ranking with the greats of film comedy. It is time the Academy recognizes this fact (and their aversion to comedy) and honors The World’s End, his best film to date, with a nomination for Best Director.
Stop and consider everything Wright's latest film accomplishes, all while staying as light and zippy as classic screwball by the likes of Hawks or Sturges. The World’s End is simultaneously a genre spoof, a farce, a biting social satire, a character study, and a moving comedy about middle-aged friendship. And above all else it’s funny. »

Edgar Wright (Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World) has been promoting the DVD and Blu-ray home entertainment release of his final film in the ‘three flavours cornetto trilogy’ The World’S End starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Throughout his promotional interviews we have been getting tiny bits of information here and there on his next production which is of course Marvel Studios’ Ant-man which is set to shoot next year for a 31st July 2015 release.
Ant-man has received a fair amount of attention recently with Paul Rudd reportedly the front runner for the title role, which in my opinion would be a very fine choice. Now Edgar Wright has revealed that the film is no longer set to shoot this side of the pond as it had originally been planned to do. Many Marvel Studios productions over the past few years have taken advantage »

Another day, another bread crumb of scoop from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In a recent interview with Et, The World’s End director Edgar Wright discussed his latest project, a little Marvel movie called Ant-Man. Wright states that the Phase 3 McU film may not be the type of superhero movie audience are expecting.
I want to make him into a badass [Laughs]. No, I always liked that comic and I always thought it would be an interesting thing to see in live-action. That’s why I that Comic-Con test that we did for Marvel, to show this fight scene like a proof of content, »

Much to the chagrin of a portion of fans, Marvel has consistently opted to take a lighthearted, comedic approach to its movies. The film studio’s philosophy seems to be to go broad with its projects, keep them light and accessible so that whole families will want to visit the theater when their movies come out. It’s a strategy that is hard to argue against when you see that each film from the comic book shingle makes money hand-over-fist, and that the company is becoming quite a multi-media behemoth.
Earlier this week, Chris Pratt spoke about how “Guardians of The Galaxy” would be “fun,” and not “take itself too seriously,” while also stating that the dramatic beats will be handled with proper respect as well. Now Entertainment Tonight has had a chance to speak with director Edgar Wright, who’s working on Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” which is due out »

If you've been on the Internet at all this past week, then you've probably seen an epic splits stunt performed by veteran action star Jean-Claude Van Damme where he performs the trademark legs spread maneuver between two moving Volvo semi-trucks moving in reverse. It's one of the most impressive things you'll ever seen. Well, not to be outdone, Channing Tatum decided to perform his own stunt as Jenko on the set of 22 Jump Street. It's a great, timely spoof, and it's also a first look at what Jenko looks like undercover in college. It seems like he's playing somewhat of a douchebag if he's wearing that Affliction shirt. Watch now! Channing Tatum tweeted the stunt video saying, "This stunt was preformed by unprofessionals," so here: 22 Jump Street is directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The Lego Movie) and written by Michael Bacall (21 Jump Street, »

While Steven Price might have seemed to come out of nowhere this fall with his teeth-rattling, nerve-fraying score for Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity", it's actually the culmination of years in the industry. He spent a long time as a music editor, working on productions like Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins," Peter Jackson's "The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers" and "The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King" before he got first chance to step up into the big leagues by composing the score for 2011's "Attack The Block." And while this year Price also scored Edgar Wright's "The World's End" (he had previously done additional music on "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World") he will forever be remembered for his stunning work on "Gravity." And it has clearly gotten him noticed in the right places. Price's next gig will be composing the score for David Ayer »

Edgar Wright is, arguably, one of the most clever and entertaining comedic filmmakers working today. For many of us, knowing he’s British may cause for pause, but let me lay that to rest. This is not your grandmother’s brand of dry British socialite comedy. The World’S End is the official conclusion to the somewhat unofficial “Three Flavors Cornetto” trilogy, so named in part by the droves of fans that have fully embraced the films directed and co-written by Edgar Wright. Co-writer Simon Pegg co-stars with Nick Frost in this third film following Shaun Of The Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007).
The World’S End is a concept first explore by Wright and Pegg during a publicity tour for Hot Fuzz, based on an old script written by a young Edgar Wright. The film, noticeably more mature than it’s two predecessors, still maintains a healthy dose »

In the current era of The Avengers and Batman Vs. Superman, it’s impossible to be a fan of the comic-book genre and not have a well-considered argument to the question, “Who’s the Most Powerful Superhero?” Superman, of course, is the most obvious answer in any superpower battle-royale debate, but there are strong and more interesting claims to be made for the others, too. (Except Hawkeye. Sorry, guy.)
In Hollywood offices, there are similar conversations going on all the time about their own legion of superheroes, those famous actors and actresses who can open a movie in New York, »

We recently reported that Silent Night, Deadly Night was coming back to theaters just in time for Christmas, but Silent Night is making a return to theaters as well. Directed by Steven C. Miller, Silent Night is a loose remake of Silent Night, Deadly Night and was originally released around this time last year:
“A loose remake of the horror classic Silent Night, Deadly Night, the film’s stellar cast includes Malcolm McDowell (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Easy A), Jaime King (Sin City, My Bloody Valentine 3D), Donal Logue (Shark Night 3D, Blade), Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow), Brendan Fehr (Final Destination, X-Men First Class), and Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World).
McDowell and King star as a small-town sheriff and deputy on the hunt for a murderous Santa Claus terrorizing their community on Christmas Eve. But with the streets full of Santas for the annual Christmas parade, the killer is hiding in plain sight. »

By 2021, when the next generation of consoles will likely release, we’ll look back fondly on the past two decades, noting the video games that won our hearts and cramped our fingers. Personally, I’ve always relished in the charm of a surprise hit – a game that no one bet on but would still go on to make all of the money (and still be a great game).
I’ve listed 10 such games that stand out in regards to their ratio of success and expectation. If you think I’ve missed anything important, be sure to write your pitch in the comments. Let’s begin.
Sure, the movie didn’t succeed against the odds, but the game was a steal for 10 bucks. Based on the now-classic graphic novels of the same name, this game was a pixelated brawler, harkening back to the glory days of arcades and Snes. »

With the launch the PlayStation 4 finally upon us, today’s PlayStation Plus update guarantees that subscribers will have at least two next-gen Instant Game Collection titles (the shoot-em-up Resogun and the puzzle-platformer Contrast) ready to go on November 15th.
Set in the “1920′s vaudevillian flim noir dreamscape,” Contrast has players take on the role of Dawn, the imaginary friend of a little girl named Didi. Dawn has the power to move back and forth between the 3D world and the “2D shadowscape” by becoming a shadow. Using the shifting ability, players will be able to “solve complex puzzles, in order to help Didi investigate the secrets that lie behind her troubled family.”
On the other end of the video game genre spectrum, Resogun is described as a “intense fast-paced shoot em’ up,” that has players “blast hordes of enemies and rescue the last survivors from distant galactic colonies.” In other words, »

Your Top Three is a series where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. We previously asked you to rank the best comic book movies and the best superhero performances. But we've never asked for just your favorite superhero movies. So, with Thor: The Dark World out this weekend it's as good a time as ever to remedy this. A majority of the results in the comic book movie poll were for titles not involving superheroes, and that means this is your chance to fill in the spots where you can no longer name stuff like A History of Violence and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Plus, you can now include such nonadapted movies as Hancock, Sky High, Super, Mystery Men, Megamind, Meteor Man, Zoom, Kriish, My Super Ex-Girlfriend and Superhero Movie. As...
