'Secret Life of Walter Mitty' Review: 10 Things to Know About Ben Stiller's Fantastical Comedy

23 December 2013 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Usually, when Christmastime rolls around, Ben Stiller finds himself in a franchise film, either one of the "Night at the Museum" movies (the third one is out next year) or the series based around "Meet the Parents" (there have been three of those, too). But this year, Stiller finds himself giving a different kind of yuletide greeting, with "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," a loose remake of the 1947 Danny Kaye movie (they're both based on James Thurber's 1939 short story of the same name).

In the movie, Stiller plays the title character, a man who works for Life Magazine in the photo department even though, as a physical object, Life hasn't existed for many years. Every once in a while, Walter "zones out" and enters a lush fantasy land of his own invention, only to snap back to reality. Until a crisis at work causes him to actually take »

Why is oral sex hard for Hollywood?

28 November 2013 7:44 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

As Evan Rachel Wood has found to her dismay, cunnilingus as a form of oral sex still remains taboo in Hollywood – so how can it go mainstream?

Evan Rachel Wood on Hollywood's cunnilingus censorship

Yesterday, actor Evan Rachel Wood launched a Twitter polemic against the ratings board in the Us, the MPAA, for necessitating the removal of a scene where her character in Charlie Countryman receives oral sex. The edit was presumably made so the film avoids the Nc-17 rating that would effectively bar it from many mainstream cinemas.

It's a microcosmic example of a much wider issue: cunnilingus is de facto arthouse. Even coming from the surprisingly stilted world of intra-male sex chat, it's clear that among my twentysomething peers this is a thoroughly mainstream, necessary part of modern sex – ignoring the fact that most men thoroughly enjoy it. And yet Hollywood, with its lumbering moral turning circle, hasn't come round to the idea. »

Arrow

"The Vampire Diaries" and "Piranha 3D" actor Steven R. McQueen has dropped tweets over the past few days that would indicate he's been campaigning hard to play the role of Nightwing in The CW's "Arrow".

In fact, it was loud enough that he now says he's "had some superhero conversations with the executives this weekend @ARROWwriters". [Source: E! Online]

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Jennifer Lawrence recently spoke with IGN about reprising the role of Mystique in the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past". Turns out her character is Not with Fassbender's Magneto as was last seen in "X-Men: First Class":

"We find Raven, she's split off from Eric and Charles and she's kind of her own agent. She has one mission of trying to assassinate somebody and it will be her first kill basically, and because we've seen her in the future and what she becomes and this is kind »

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to Resurrect Pet Sematary Remake

1 November 2013 10:39 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Hey, fans of killer kids, it appears Paramount is still intent on pushing through with their planned remake of the Stephen King story “Pete Sematary”, and they’ve now set “28 Weeks Later’s” Juan Carlos Fresnadillo in the director’s chair. “Piranha 3D’s” Alexandre Aja was previously attached to direct. Of course, Fresnadillo was also supposed to direct “The Crow” remake and the “Highlander” remake — until he wasn’t anymore. Fresnadillo must have a thing for remakes. Either that, or there are so many remakes floating around Hollywood these days, that it’s impossible to find an original movie idea anymore. Either/or. The original, based on the King novel of the same name, follows a doctor and his family, who moves into a new Maine town next to a cemetery with powers to bring back the dead. Except the people that come back aren’t exactly, you know, »

28 Weeks Later Director to Remake Stephen King's Pet Sematary

31 October 2013 8:04 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Paramount Pictures started working on a remake of Stephen King's "Pet Sematary" three years ago when the studio hired Matthew Greenberg (1408, Reign of Fire, Halloween: H20, Mimic) to write the script. Since then, several directors have been attached, including Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Mirrors, Piranha 3D). Apparently things didn't work out, because now comes word that "28 Weeks Later" helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has signed on to direct the film. Published in 1983, "Pet Sematary" centered on a family that trades the city life for the country life in Maine, then discovers that they have moved near a pet cemetery that rests on an ancient burial ground. When the husband's toddler son is killed in an auto accident, the father takes the boy's body to the cemetery, where it is resurrected in demonic form. »

28 Weeks Later Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to Helm New Adaptation of Pet Sematary

31 October 2013 12:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Since his 2011 film Intruders, director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has been bouncing around reboots.  A couple years ago, he was attached to direct a reboot of The Crow and Highlander, but ended up dropping out of both.  Now he's headed toward yet another tested property.  According to Variety, he will stick with the horror genre to direct a remake of Paramount's Pet Sematary.  Based on the novel by Stephen King, the story is about a family that moves in to a home located next to a cemetery (always a bad idea), and they discover that the cemetery can bring its buried creatures back from the dead.  A remake has been kicking around for the past several years, and at one point Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3D) was in talks to direct.  Mary Lambert's 1989 adaptation grossed $57 million on a $11 million budget.  She then directed the sequel, Pet Sematary II, but it didn't »

‘Saw’ Writers Give Life to a Magic Talking Teddy Bear in ‘The Stuff of Legend’

10 October 2013 12:15 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“The Stuff of Legend” seems tailor-made for a film adaptation. It’s a graphic novel (always a plus), and it’s got both the “talking toys” schtick of Toy Story and the “action movie team-up for kids” vibe last seen in Rise of the Guardians. The story goes like this: boogeyman pulls little boy into a dark and evil closet dimension. Toys venture in to save little boy. Upon entering the dark world, toys gain disproportionate amounts of bad-ass. The teddy bear is now a snarling grizzly, the jack-in-the-box is now a hatchet-wielding Joker-like figure, toy soldiers become real soldiers, and so forth. But while The Stuff of Legend seems like obvious adaptation material, the same can’t be said for the two writers picked to do the adapting. Patrick Melton and Marcus Duston (in a story broken by The Hollywood Reporter) aren’t exactly known for their kiddie fare; the two are far more famous for »

Saw and Feast Writers Take on The Stuff of Legend for Disney

10 October 2013 9:25 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the duo behind the “Feast” franchise, before parlaying that success into installments of the “Saw” franchise, then launching their own “The Collector” franchise, will now be putting all that dark, horror stuff behind them to work on Disney’s “The Stuff of Legend”. Well, sort of. The writing duo have just been tapped by Disney to do a draft on “The Stuff of Legend”, based on the comic book of the same name by Mike Raicht and Brian Smith (and drawn by Charles Paul Wilson III), about “a band of toys that journeys into a dark realm to rescue their owner from the infamous Boogeyman.” Shawn Christensen wrote the previous draft. My guess is, the studio finally got around to watching Christensen’s “Abduction”, and realized it’s probably a good idea to get someone else in there. Besides “Feast”, “Saw”, and “The Collector”, Melton »

Horns Movie U.S. Rights Picked Up, Still No Release Date Yet

5 October 2013 9:41 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With the feature adaptation of Joe HIll's Horns having made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last month, we were left to hope that -- in addition to positive buzz about the movie -- there would be some news about U.S. distribution. The buzz has ranged from mixed to positive from what I've read, which is ok. Better than ok is the news that the film finally has a distributer. Deadline reports that Dimension and RADiUS-twc have acquired the U.S. rights to Horns, a film starring Daniel Radcliffe, directed by Piranha 3D's Alexandre Aja and produced by Red Granite Pictures. Deadline adds that the deal was for multiple millions and rivals the largest deals made for the other Toronto films, which certainly indicates some enthusiasm on Dimension/RADiUS-twc's part. At this point, there's still no release date, but it sounds like 2014 is still the goal. »

4 October 2013 3:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

There’ll calling it an off-beat supernatural thriller, where’ll calling it a welcome departure from the filmmaker who balsted onto the scene with a great Euro-horror sample High Tension. Starring a robust Daniel Radcliffe, Deadline reports that Alexandre Aja’s Horns has been picked up post-tiff in an all Weinstein tag-team deal by Dimension and RADiUS-twc. A 2014 release is in the cards.

Does It Make You Horny, Baby? Watch The First Clip From 'Horns,' Plus Director Alexandre Aja Still Wants To Do 'Cobra the Space Pirate'

10 September 2013 3:50 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the films we were most excited about at the Toronto International Film Festvial was Alexandre Aja's "Horns," an adaptation of the devilish novel by Joe Hill (his father is some guy named Stephen King). With a terrific cast led by Daniel Radcliffe as a man who wakes up one day looking more Hellboy than human, and Juno Temple, it seemed like it could be a delightful horror-comedy that pushed both Aja (director of "Piranha 3D") and Radcliffe out of their comfort zones. Sadly, the movie has been met with mostly middling notices. Our interest is still piqued, especially after this first clip (also Aja still seems keen on doing his crazy "Cobra the Space Pirate"). The clip, which only runs about 30 seconds, features the bedeviled Radcliffe speaking to a man holding a gun who looks to be David Morse, although he hasn't been mentioned as being part of the cast before and, »

Is the U.K. ready to dine on Dead Sushi?

10 September 2013 9:30 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

It's been a little too sane around here lately, so it's time to spice things up a bit with a little Dead Sushi. Noboru Iguchi, the near legendry director of classic Japanese splatter-fests RoboGeisha, The Machine Girl and Mutant Girls Squad, went back behind the camera in 2012 to direct the deliriously deranged Dead Sushi, a bizarre new movie inspired by the likes of Piranha 3D and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Iguchi's last picture was the equally bizarre F is for Fart, a juvenile short film that brought light relief (and light release) to the hit and miss horror anthology, The ABCs of Death. You can check out the official website just here and the glorious trailer at the link below. Starring Rina Takeda( High-Kick Girl!), Shigeru Matsuzaki (Space Adventure Cobra) and Kentaro Shimazu (The Machine Girl, Tokyo Gore Police), Dead Sushi arrives on U.K. DVD September 23rd 2013. Now »

Horns Review [Tiff 2013]

10 September 2013 9:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When I first read up on Horns, I was a little taken aback. Daniel Radcliffe teaming up with Alexandre Aja for a horror movie? It seemed like a very odd combination on paper, but instantaneously caught my interest – not to mention the plot of the film itself. Surely something so outlandish could not possibly work, right?

The story follows Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), who’s girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple)m has been brutally murdered, and the town thinks he’s the murderer. He swears his innocence, but mounting evidence is starting to suggest otherwise. After one drunken evening, Ig wakes up with two horns protruding through his forehead. He is confused by their appearance, but becomes even more so after strangers, family and friends begin to confess their darkest thoughts and secrets to him. Sensing he may be able to solve Merrin’s murder himself, he sets out to discover »

10 September 2013 4:12 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Today we have the first clip from Daniel Radcliffe's upcoming supernatural thriller "Horns." In the clip we can hear the actor use an American accent, which makes him sounds completely different from what we're used to. Check out the clip below. Plot: Radcliffe plays Ig Perrish, the lead suspect in the violent rape and killing of his girlfriend. Hung over from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his head. Their power drives people to confess sins and give in to selfish impulses -- an effective tool in his quest to discover the circumstances of his girlfriend's death and for exacting revenge. "Horns" is directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D) and based on Joe Hill's book. It co-stars Juno Temple, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner, Max Minghella and James Remar. Clip: »
