Are you one of those people who regularly yells at the TV while watching horror movies, because the characters’ dumb decisions annoy you to no end? If so, your chance to prove how much smarter you are than the average slasher movie victim has arrived, in the form of Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn. Combining horror movies with narrative-focused gaming to create a scary attempt at survival, it’s an instant classic that brings immersion to a whole new level.
Set in what seems to be the remote wilderness of Western Canada, Until Dawn is more of an experience than your average video game. It begins with a bang, then fast forwards a year ahead, to a time where eight friends have decided to culminate for a weekend of wintry remembrance in honour of friends who previously perished. They all ascend a gigantic mountain with the promise of friendship, memories and good times, »

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »
It was August 11, 2014. The theater was full with an advance screening of The Giver starring Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep. The red carpet event was live-streamed prior to the showing as stars from the film flooded in and entered the New York City party while we, in Knoxville, Tenn., gazed at the screen.
I checked my phone for the time and came across a message on the screen.
“Actor Robin Williams found dead at his home. He was 63.”
A friend put it best when he said that hearing the news of Williams’s passing surprised him with grief.
It did the same for me.
Now, to this point, Robin Williams was just another face (or voice) on the screen to me. An actor who had given life to Genie in Aladdin, the main character of Flubber, and was Mrs. Doubtfire. Nothing of note, but fun most of the time.

The first book was published in 2013 and sets up a society in which super-beings are called 'epics' and are essentially the bad guys. Receiving their powers in a freak natural event, these super villains use them to rule and enslave with the titular Steelheart being the most evil of all.
Resistance has emerged though in the form of Reckoners: ordinary humans dedicated to finding their weaknesses and assassinating them. The main protagonist is a Reckoner with a personal grudge against the Epics.

If the Minecraft movie is even half as popular as the video game, then Mojang will have a true, ahem, blockbuster on its hands. As anticipation builds for Minecraft's silver screen debut, we've decided to dig around for some more information.
From potential release dates and budgets, to storylines, directors and producers, here's everything we know about the Minecraft movie so far.
What's the Minecraft movie all about?
Plot details are thin on the ground, but Mojang COO Vu Bui told The Guardian that it will tell one of the countless possible stories from Minecraft's build-it-yourself game world. "When coming up with a story, we want to make sure it is just a story within Minecraft, as opposed to the story within Minecraft," he said.
Elaborating on his comments, Bui said that the company doesn't want to discourage players by coming up with an official story of the Minecraft universe. »
Swedish company hires Rob McElhenney, creator of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, for film version of phenomenally successful franchise
Minecraft creators Mojang have crafted a director for the forthcoming film based on their popular video game.
Rob McElhenney, creator and star of the sitcom It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, replaces Night at the Museum’s Shawn Levy, whose vision of a ”Goonies-style” adventure was apparently rejected by the Swedish game company.

All had been quiet for a little while on the proposed Minecraft movie - but the project has just got a fresh boost, with the news that its director has been found.
Minecraft was, at one stage, set to be directed by Night At The Museum trilogy helmer Shawn Levy. He departed the project at the end of last year, and there had been no word on his replacement. However, it's been confirmed by Minecraft creators Mojang that a new director has been found.
Rob McElhenney, the creator, writer and star of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia has been given the job. It sounds like he's had the job for a few weeks too, as he was recently a visitor to the Minecon convention that took place in London.

“The Gang Takes On A Video Game?”
In an unlikely turn of events, Rob McElhenney, star and co-creator of Fxx’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, is set to direct a Minecraft movie, adapting from the popular Mojang video game.
There has been talk of a Minecraft movie for awhile now, but it seems like an odd choice to have McElhenney, who hasn’t directed anything out of It’s Always Sunny episodes so far, taking over the film. Night at the Museum and Real Steel director Shawn Levy was originally attached to the project for Warner Bros.
McElhenney has been making a slow move to features recently. There was news last year that the actor had sold a pitch to Legendary to write and direct Figment. Allegedly, he showed the producers a four-minute test reel as part of his pitch.
While McElhenney hasn’t showed up in features yet, »

Rob McElhenney has found success in Hollywood thanks to his role as creator, producer, writer and co-star of the Fxx series It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, but since the show debuted back in 2005 he hasn't actually done much outside of it. That's about to change in a major way, as its been reported that he has just landed the job directing the upcoming video game movie Minecraft. Deadline has the scoop on this development, noting that McElhenney has not yet had the experience of helming a feature film. His only experience as a director to this point has been on two early episodes of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and a pilot for an FX series called Pariah starring Bill Burr. He's actually the second filmmaker to take the reins of Minecraft, as it was originally set up as a project to be made by Night At The Museum's »
With The Lego Movie as the current gold standard for turning products and games into movies, Warner Bros. was quick to nab the rights to massive property Minecraft. According to Mojang, the Swedish developers behind the game, the new director for the film version will be It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia co-creator Rob McElhenney. The game as you may know, allows you to create and shape an entire world, and has sold more than 35 million copies across PCs, the Xbox 360 and mobile platforms. Much like with Lego, the only stories are those created by users, who can choose whether to explore, create or fight with each other. There are also nocturnal monsters stalking the place, which you can choose to avoid or deal with.When Warners bought the rights back in February last year, Night At The Museum man Shawn Levy was quickly hired, and developed a take on »
It’s no secret that Warner Bros. has been toiling long and hard to turn world-building video game Minecraft into a feature film, and today brings word that the studio has finally tapped a new director for the high-profile project: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Rob McElhenney.
The multi-talented thesp is one of the driving creative forces behind the long-running FX comedy, serving as the show’s star, creator, developer and executive producer, as well as occasional writer and director. In addition to helming three episodes of It’s Always Sunny, McElhenney also shot a TV movie called Pariah that is still awaiting release.
Shawn Levy, who directed the Night at the Museum film, was previously attached to direct the Minecraft, but he left seven months back over creative differences, taking writers Kieran and Michelle Mulroney with him.

Among the luminaries at Tuesday’s “San Andreas” premiere was Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who couldn’t resist the chance to tell residents to get ready for a long-awaited Great Quake, while also touting his recent push for better earthquake preparedness by the city government.
Garcetti made the Hollywood premiere, along with city fire chief Ralph Terrazas, quake expert Lucy Jones of the U.S. Geological Survey and a host of city firemen, who delivered the film’s star, Dwayne Johnson, to the Tcl Chinese Theatre in one of the city’s red fire engines. Johnson plays a firefighter trying to rescue his family and others following the biggest quake in recorded history.

Anne Meara, who along with her husband and partner Jerry Stiller, became a comedy legend, has died at age 85. Meara and Stiller were unlikely candidates for romance in 1950s New York: he was Jewish, she was Catholic. Nevertheless, to the disappointment of both of their families, they married. Like many young couples in show business, they initially struggled to pay the bills. They developed a comedy act that proved to be popular in Gotham night clubs. This eventually caught the eye of Ed Sulllivan, who gave them a coveted slot on his Sunday night variety show. The rest was history. Stiller and Meara became one of the top comedy acts in the country. Their real life marriage lasted 61 years, during which they remained mainstays on the New York social scene. They also continued to perform regularly and even had a popular web-based series. Meara was a familiar face on television and in feature films. »
