8 great films cursed by bad endings: Did Kingsman really need that anal sex joke?

29 August 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As the ending to one of the best films ever says, "Nobody's perfect", and the same goes for cinema, as these 12 great movies with bad endings prove.

Spoiler avoiders, beware, however: there will be in-depth discussion of several twisty movies below, so if you're of a nervous moviegoing disposition, click away now.

1. Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)

What went right: There's a lot to love in Jedi: one of the best lightsaber battles in the series, the Jabba's palace break-out sequence, top notch SFX – the speeder bikes alone – and finally, victory for the good guys. And yes, Princess Leia's bikini, if you're into that sort of thing.

What went wrong: George Lucas. In fiddling with the ending again and again, it's hard to work out what is the "definitive" version is, but however it officially ends – goodbye old Darth Vader, hello young Darth Vader – the final minutes »

Ten Best: Beasts On Film

27 August 2015 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Beasts have always provided fantastic source material for horror filmmakers across the ages, whether from the mythical world or the natural. To celebrate the release of Into the Grizzly Maze last week we take a look back at some the biggest, baddest beasts on film…

Into the Grizzly Maze (2015)

Starring James Marsden, Thomas Jane and Billy Bob Thornton, Into the Grizzly Maze tells the story of a sheriff (Jane), thrown into turmoil when a massive rogue grizzly wreaks havoc in a local Alaskan community. Enlisting the help of his estranged brother (Marsden) he enters the labyrinthine Grizzly Maze to track down his missing wife, before the bear does. As the body count mounts, things are only further complicated when an infamous bear hunter (Thornton) enters the fray, determined to take down the bear he’s been waiting for his whole life…

Dowdle Brothers on the Harrowing Making of ‘No Escape’

25 August 2015 2:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When John Erick Dowdle and his younger brother Drew Dowdle sat down at the premiere of their movie “No Escape” last week, it was the realization of a dream eight years in the making — one that had been diverted several times.

“There were four times, maybe five, this movie almost got made,” says John, who directed and co-wrote the film with Drew, who produced. He explains the movie lost financing several times over the years. “One time we were literally about to get on a flight to Thailand to start filming and it imploded.”

So you can forgive the brothers for being more nervous than usual about their big premiere. “I had anxiety dreams every night this week about things going terribly wrong,” Drew says with a laugh. “I dreamt it was cancelled, they gave our tickets away. … I couldn’t quite wrap my brain around the fact this was really happening. »

Hugh Jackman Looking To Take Homer's 'Odyssey'

20 August 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It looks like Hollywood is swinging for the fences, going for the grandaddy of Western canon literature: Homer's "The Odyssey." That grand work will now be reduced/adapted into a blockbuster movie, with an actor who knows a thing or two about green screens and CGI. The Wrap reports that The Wolverine, a.k.a. Hugh Jackman, is in early talks to star in the movie for Lionsgate. Francis Lawrence ("I Am Legend," "The Hunger Games: All The Movies Except The First One") will direct the movie that sees our hero venture home from the Trojan War and writing poetry. Nah, just joking, he's going to have some epic adventures. Read More: Hugh Jackman Will Appear In 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' Ian McKellen Will Not Peter Craig ("The Town," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1") wrote the script, and if all goes according to plan, shooting will kick off next year. »

From Romero to 'Walking Dead': A Brief History of Zombies in Pop Culture

19 August 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Think of a teeming metropolis like New York City. Now double that in size. If every single person who lived there, every hot-dog vendor, third-grader and euphoric Mets fan, was in fact a flesh-eating zombie, that would roughly equal the 17.3 million people that tuned into last October's fifth-season premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead, the most-watched episode of anything in cable history. Those are blockbuster numbers and they occurred week after week. The demand for the show has become so huge that a prequel spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead, debuts this Sunday. »

The Revenant co-writer tapped to pen new draft of Edgar Wright's Collider

12 August 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Way back in 2012, we brought you word that J.J. Abrams, Edgar Wright and screenwriter Mark Protosevich (Spike Lee's Oldboy, I Am Legend) were joining forces with Paramount for a sci-fi film titled Collider, with Abrams producing through his Bad Robot shingle, and Wright directing from a script by Protosevich. There hasn't been any movement on the project since then, but now Deadline is... Read More »

Edgar Wright's Collider lands new writer

11 August 2015 10:16 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Once he's done with Baby Driver, Edgar Wright may well direct sci-fi movie Collider, which now has a new writer on board...

The next project on Edgar Wright's slate to direct is Baby Driver, that Sony announced last week was set for release in 2017. But after that, he may well be moving onto Collider.

A film that's been set up at Bad Robot, with Jj Abrams producting, word first surfaced on Collider back in the summer of 2012. Back then, Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend) was reported to be co-writing the screenplay with Wright. Few details were available on the movie, short of the fact that it's a science fiction project.

Fast forward to now, and still there are few details known, but it does still appear to be live and kicking. Mark L Smith has been hired by Paramount to take a pass at the film's screenplay, having recently co-penned The Revenant. »

Win: The Burning On Blu Ray

11 August 2015 3:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Arrow Films

To celebrate the release of The Burning, available now on Blu Ray and DVD, we are giving 3 lucky readers the chance to win a copy.

Honing the spirit of Sergio Leone and echoing shades of Rambo First Blood, Argentinean director Pablo Fendrik’s slow-building thriller is essential viewing for all fans of world cinema. Gael Garcia Bernal (Babel, The Motorcycle Diaries) joins forces with Alice Braga (I Am Legend, Elysium) in this tale of unfolding revenge.

Kai (Garcia Bernal), a mysterious and mystical figure, emerges from the Argentinean rainforest to rescue Vania (Braga), who has been kidnapped by mercenaries. Together they face off against the men who have ruthlessly murdered Vania’s father, a poor farmer, and taken over his land.

Part love story, part western, Fendrik turns this latter genre on its head as so-called civilisation becomes a destructive force over both the rich jungle setting and the communities living within it. »

Fantastic 4: the body horror superhero film we'll never see

10 August 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As stories of Fantastic Four's production woes spread, Ryan looks behind the scenes at the body horror superhero film we'll never see...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Fantastic Four.

Casting controversy. Months of rumours about a tortuous, troubled production. Director Josh Trank’s already infamous (now deleted) tweet. The unrelentingly negative reviews.

Having already lived through all that, sitting in a darkened multiplex and actually watching Fox’s Fantastic Four feels less like a normal viewing experience and more like archaeology.

Where is Trank, the director of the superb Chronicle, in among all this? What happened to the David Cronenberg fan who wanted to make a "science fiction tale of something happening to your body and it transforming out of your control" according to a Collider interview? The superhero movie that would fit into the "science fiction, or horror, or even drama sections" of the old Blockbusters video chain? »

Will Smith Boards Collateral Beauty

6 August 2015 6:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

Less than a month after Hugh Jackman’s exit from the project, Collateral Beauty has found a replacement in Will Smith.

Smith will play a mild-mannered advertising executive battling with depression, requiring the aid of his friends and colleagues to snap him out of the sickness. Rooney Mara and Jason Segel are also attached, presumably as some of Smith’s saviours.

The project will be directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (also behind next month’s much hyped Me, Earl & The Dying Girl) and is based on a screenplay by Allan Loeb (Just Go With It). Loeb’s script sold to PalmStar Media for a hefty $2.25 Million, so it should be no surprise development has promptly realigned with another A-lister.

Smith was considered the biggest movie star in the world not so long ago, but a string of flops including 2008’s Seven Pounds and 2013’s After Earth have somewhat diminished his brand. »

Transformers 5 Announces Writing Team

30 July 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Transformer 5 is making announcements that the writing team has been selected. Now so far we know that Michael Bay has said he will not be involved with the directing but we’ve heard such announcements before. Mark Wahlberg has not said if he’ll return or not but it’s a sure bet he will.

Steven DeKnight who was a showrunner on Daredevil announced this confirmed this and also that the franchise would be splitting for spinoffs and other projects as well. Jeff Pinkner has previously been attached to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and shows like Alias and Fringe. Akiva Goldsman has also worked on Fringe, The Losers, I am Legend, and Deep Blue Sea.

'Goosebumps' producer Neal Moritz almost gave up on the whole idea

22 July 2015 2:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Yesterday, I let you inside my head to live out your dream of being on the “Goosebumps” movie set. But because the nature of film is ephemeral, sometimes people are busy with the Work of movies and you miss them. Then sometimes the planets align and you get to talk to them later. Like when I caught up with “Goosebumps” producer Neal Moritz last week to shed more light on where the movie stands almost a year after filming wrapped. Image Credit: Sony Pictures Entertainment Hitfix Harpy:   Was there a learning curve for you? “I Am Legend” and “Fast & Furious” aren’t exactly family movies. Was there anything that surprised you or you were like oh we can't do that? Neal Moritz:   I think because I have a 9-year-old and a 12-year-old and I've seen so many kids movies with them that I kind of got it. I wanted »

Incredible shrinking men: an ‘Ant-Man’ feature

20 July 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ant-Man has just hit cinemas in the UK, with the action-packed comedy escapade heading straight for the box office sugar mountain. With its story of a house thief who gets more than he bargains for when he pinches a mysterious suit that makes shrinking in the wash look like a walk in the park, it falls squarely on the lighter side of Marvel Studios, alongside Iron Man and Guardians Of The Galaxy.

The concept of a man who becomes the height a bug may appear quaint to today’s audiences, but the movie has certainly blown away the cobwebs, creating a spectacle that cinemagoers and critics have so far taken to like a moth to a Wicker Man. Of course, it also follows in a long tradition of characters with tiny but tortuous problems. Despite being small, they fill the screen, from Alice In Wonderland to Innerspace.

The Strain Season 2 Episode 1 Review – ‘Bk,NY’

18 July 2015 3:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the first episode of The Strain season 2…

Having failed to defeat The Master, Ephraim and his team retreat to Red Hook and begin fortifying their position…

Guillermo Del Toro directs the opening ten minutes of season two with skill, precision and delicacy. Coming across as part Grimm faery tale, part moral fable. We are treated to high-end storytelling, which adds breadth and backstory before dropping us back into present day Manhattan. Where a split second flashback to last season’s finale, aids the unfamiliar in catching up on The Strain as it hits the ground running.

Once more David Bradley’s Abraham Setrakian stands out from the crowd. Like an ailing Van Helsing circa nineteen seventy something, he piles conviction into a performance which never drifts into caricature. Kevin Durand’s Vasilly Fet meanwhile shows similar skill, playing quietly confident and unfazed without a false note. Just »

Comic-Con 2015 Interviews: Lily James, Matt Smith & More Talk Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

16 July 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

On February 5th, manners will meet the macabre in Screen GemsPride and Prejudice and Zombies, the upcoming film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel of the same name. At Comic-Con last week, Daily Dead participated in roundtable interviews with the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies director and cast, who discussed the film's physicality, investable characters, formidable zombies, and much more.

Writer/director Burr Steers on his vision for the film:

Burr Steers: It was actually something I knew was out there because a lot of people had taken shots at trying to get it made. I looked at it and had a take on it that I was really confident would work. I went in there and rewrote it, and made it happen.

I saw it in my mind the way you'd approach a play. We'd set up this alternate world where there's a zombie pandemic that »

Francis Lawrence Eyeing Red Sparrow

16 July 2015 7:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hollywood directors are notorious flirts when it comes to picking projects, and spy thriller Red Sparrow has been the belle of the ball for some time. Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky was at one point eyeing the pic as his follow-up to Biblical epic Noah, and David Fincher considered coming aboard in hopes of reuniting with his Girl with the Dragon Tattoo lead Rooney Mara (who walked when Fincher did). Now, Francis Lawrence, who’ll finally be done directing Lionsgate’s Hunger Games films this fall, is in the mix to take the reins.

Lawrence is accustomed to swimming in blockbuster waters, albeit without the same consistent praise Aronofsky and Fincher have received throughout their careers. Outside of The Hunger Games quadrilogy (of which he directed three), Lawrence has helmed I Am LegendConstantine and Water for Elephants, as well as episodes of short-lived series Kings and Touch. Still, working »

Francis Lawrence Circles 'Red Sparrow,' Once Eyed By David Fincher And Darren Aronofsky

15 July 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Sometimes, the potential pedigree of a project can be found in whoever might be kicking the tires, and "Red Sparrow" has certainly drawn some big names while it has been in development. Back in 2013, Darren Aronofsky was taking a look at the movie, and a year later, it was being seen as a potential vehicle to reunite David Fincher and Rooney Mara. Each has since walked, but now another director is checking the project out. Read More: The Best & The Worst Of 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire'    Francis Lawrence ("I Am Legend," "The Hunger Games" movies, except the first one) is now circling "Red Sparrow," according to Deadline. Based on the book by Jason Matthews and with a script by Eric Singer (“American Hustle”), the story is set in present-day Russia and follows a Russian intelligence officer struggling to survive in the post-Soviet intelligence jungle. Here's the book synopsis:  In »

Watch The Trailer for Ardor Starring Gael García Bernal And Alice Braga

30 June 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Working together for the first time since their collaboration in Fernando MeirellesBlindness, Award-winning actors Gael García Bernal (Babel, Motorcycle Diaries) and Alice Braga (I Am Legend, City of God) star in Ardor, a visually sumptuous adventure about a mysterious man who emerges from the Argentinian rainforest to rescue the kidnapped daughter of a poor farmer.

Written and directed by Pablo Fendrik (Blood Appears, The Mugger), the film’s magical realism, jungle setting and social context put a fresh, contemporary twist on the western genre.

When fires sweep through the rainforest near their property along the Parana River, a poor tobacco-farming family goes on high alert. The head of the family, João, (Chico Díaz) correctly suspects the fire is a result of slash-and-burn tactics by ruthless land-grabbers intent on acquiring the farm he shares with his lovely daughter, Vânia (Braga), and her partner, Jara (Lautaro Vilo)

Bethesda “No Plans” For Fallout 4 Paid Mods; Canine Companion Dogmeat Can’t Die

19 June 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this year, both Valve and Bethesda were caught up in quite the kerfuffle in relation to paid mods in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, leading both companies to quickly pull the feature from the open-world RPG. Well, it seems that the latter developer has taken heed after the negative reaction, as it now has “no plans” to implement paid for mods in Fallout 4.

That’s according to a report by Kotaku, who quote Game Director Todd Howard, who effectively allayed any fears by stating that there is no plans for the add-on at this time. For the uninitiated, paid for modes allow skilled creators to monetize their in-game modifications on the marketplace, but in terms of the Skyrim furore, the once-novel idea was soon twisted by mismanagement and a general backlash from the Steam community. With this in mind, it’s hardly surprising that both Valve and Bethesda are »
