Paul Dano, Daniel Radcliffe And Mary Elizabeth Winstead Join Swiss Army Man

30 June 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Love & Mercy star Paul DanoHarry Potter alum Daniel Radcliffe and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead have joined the cast of Swiss Army Man, one of the most quirky-sounding dramas we’ve seen get the green light in recent times.

Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, known jointly as Daniels, are at the helm of the indie pic, which centers on a hopeless young man who finds a dead body while stranded in the wilderness. Striking up conversation with and then befriending the corpse, the man begins a very surreal journey to find his way back home. Told you it was weird.

No details yet on which roles the stars will be playing, but its nonetheless exciting to see such a talented trio of performers come together for a project, particularly one this unusual. Dano, who has been playing oddballs for years in everything from Little Miss Sunshine to Prisoners, »

Is Kristen Stewart funny?

25 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg are a couple in love -- and possibly death. I'm on the set of "American Ultra," the Max Landis-scripted, Nima Nourizadeh-directed comedic action film that stars Stewart and Eisenberg as Phoebe and Mike, a slacker couple being pursued by heavily-armed contract killers. The reason? Mike is in fact a highly-trained government agent (with amnesia!) who's been marked as a "liability" and targeted for assassination. We get to see some of the action go down on the film's New Orleans set, a warehouse that's been partially converted into a small-town grocery store. When we arrive they're in the midst of shooting a fight scene that sees Mike engaging in brutal, bloody battle with a number of enemies through aisles labeled "Fresh Produce," "Electronics," "Chips" and "Cleaning Products." In one corner of the warehouse, a giant green screen has been set up that in post »

Abigail Breslin Turns the Tables in Final Girl

24 June 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Abigail Breslin is sure turning into a genre actress lately. It seems like after Zombieland, I’ve seen her in more & more genre films like HaunterThe Call and Maggie. She is also going to appear on Fox’s upcoming genre television show, “Scream Queens”.

Final Girl is a film that I believe I saw a promo trailer earlier this year or maybe even last year and thought it looked interesting. The story also comes from Stephen Scarlata, who was one of the producers of the wonderful documentary, Jodorowsky’s Dune. He is also one of the co-writers of the upcoming VHS Horror Board Game film, Beyond the Gates.

Los Angeles, CA – Renowned photographer to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Tyler Shields will captivate audiences with his debut feature film, the “sardonic, smart, stylized, thriller” (Dennis Dermody, Paper), Final Girl.

Cannes winner ‘The Wonders’, from Alice Rohrwacher, gets a new trailer

22 June 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Way back in May of 2014, Alice Rohrwacher’s Italian coming of age story The Wonders, about a family of farmers and beekeepers won the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. And after over a year of touring festivals, it’s finally getting a release date in the UK.

We originally compared the film in our Cannes 2014 review to an Italian Little Miss Sunshine, writing, “Rohrwacher takes a standard fish-out-of-water comedy , throwing in a few moments of beauty and absurd humor, but ultimately falls short of anything other than an updated but familiar tale of adolescence.” Here’s the full synopsis:

At twelve years of age Gelsomina runs her unconventional Italian family with her three younger sisters working under her watchful eye. Together they keep the bees and make the honey on their father’s farm oblivious to the world outside of their own.

Oscar Nominated Moody Pt.2: From Fagin to Merlin - But No Harry Potter

Ron Moody as Fagin in 'Oliver!' based on Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist.' Ron Moody as Fagin in Dickens musical 'Oliver!': Box office and critical hit (See previous post: "Ron Moody: 'Oliver!' Actor, Academy Award Nominee Dead at 91.") Although British made, Oliver! turned out to be an elephantine release along the lines of – exclamation point or no – Gypsy, Star!, Hello Dolly!, and other Hollywood mega-musicals from the mid'-50s to the early '70s.[1] But however bloated and conventional the final result, and a cast whose best-known name was that of director Carol Reed's nephew, Oliver Reed, Oliver! found countless fans.[2] The mostly British production became a huge financial and critical success in the U.S. at a time when star-studded mega-musicals had become perilous – at times downright disastrous – ventures.[3] Upon the American release of Oliver! in Dec. 1968, frequently acerbic The »

New Trailer For Me And Earl And The Dying Girl

21 May 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Already a darling of this year’s Sundance, Me And Earl And The Dying Girl lands at the ember’s end of the summer with prizes and goodwill in tow. It’s going to have to struggle hard to avoid the ‘this year’s Fault In Our Stars’ tags, although Juno, Little Miss Sunshine and Napoleon Dynamite may also muscle onto the posters quotes too. Regardless, it’s one we’re looking out for. Check out the film's new trailer below.Our protagonist is the socially-awkward Greg (Thomas Mann), a man with a clunky turn of phrase that's occasionally at odds with his pathological desire to fit in. When he finds himself thrust by his well-meaning parents (Connie Britton and Nick Offerman) into the company of his classmate Rachel (Olivia Cooke), he’s all, like, "god-do-i-have-to?" and “whatever!” about it.But Rachel's potentially life-threatening illness – she’s been diagnosed with »

Scream Queens Trailer Piles On The Self-Parody

20 May 2015 6:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox is betting big on Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk this fall with the American Horror Story creators’ campy horror-comedy Scream Queens, and now that the first full trailer for the anthology series has been released, it’s easy to see why – seemingly every teen idol this side of Disney pops up in the preview.

Emma Roberts (Unfabulous), The Nine Lives of Chloe King‘s Skyler SamuelsGlee‘s Lea Michele and Keke Palmer (True Jackson, VP) are seemingly taking on the biggest roles in a cast that also boasts Abigail Breslin, Nasim Pedrad, Oliver Hudson, Billie Lourd, Diego Boneta, Glen Powell, Lucien Laviscount, Niecy Nash, Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande. Oh – and original Scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis is on hand to provide the series’ real horror credentials (unless you want to count Breslin’s Zombieland and Haunter, which is entirely valid).
