Forbidden Power Trailer Spreads Sexually Transmitted Superpowers

Forbidden Power Trailer Spreads Sexually Transmitted Superpowers
Love Drive-In movies that blow your mind, even in the slightest? Then we have something pretty weird for you. Forbidden Power takes the idea of who and what a superhero can be and turns it on its head for something completely different. It's the sci-fi version of It Follows. And it could gain a strong cult following all it's own.

Films such as Lucy, Limitless, and The Wolfman have featured story lines where the heroes have received transmitted powers via drugs or animal bites, but now comes a fresh take on that idea. Sexually transmitted power in the soon-to-be-released science fiction action thriller Forbidden Power!

Young businessman George (Lincoln Bevers) has a one-night affair with a mysterious Native American woman (played by Nasanin Nuri). When he wakes up the next morning, she's vanished, but leaves him empowered with abilities that far exceed his own, and with a cryptic message. George

Best 25 Horror Oscar Winners, Ranked

Best 25 Horror Oscar Winners, Ranked
Most people think that snobby Oscar voters through the decades have turned their backs on the horror genre. Not so. True, far more horror flicks have been nominated for Oscars — including many Alfred Hitchcock movies — than have won. Hitch was nominated six times for Best Director and never took home a gold statue, which is why he was awarded an Honorary Oscar in 1968. “Thank you,” he said, and walked offstage.

We scoured the record books to find 25 Oscar-winning horror movies, and herewith rank them for you.

After heated arguments among the IndieWire staff, we threw out a dozen or so monster movies (“King Kong,” “Mighty Joe Young,” “Jurassic Park”), ghost films (“Ghost”) and scary psychological thrillers like Hitchcock’s “Spellbound” that just didn’t feel like horror flicks to us.

Defining a horror movie is subjective. Is it about gore and guts and supernatural beings, or how it makes you feel?

Dark Universe: the undignified death of a cinematic universe

Ryan Lambie Nov 14, 2017

It's fair to say that The Mummy didn't ignite the multi-movie franchise expected of it. We look at the death of the Dark Universe...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for 2017's The Mummy.

See related  Star Wars: Rogue One review Star Wars: Rogue One - what did you think?

For some, The Mummy's marketing campaign began not with a bang, but a squeaky Tom Cruise scream. In December 2016, an unfinished trailer for the then-forthcoming film appeared online, and soon went viral: lacking music and proper sound effects, the promo's otherwise dramatic visuals suddenly seemed comically threadbare. A violent plane crash unfolded with only a few chunks of dialogue and an amusing yelp from co-star Annabelle Wallis; Tom Cruise stumbled about in zero-gravity with only a few apologetic 'oofs' and 'eeks' for company.

Steps were taken to have the leaked trailer removed, but as is the way of the web,

Director Joe Johnston Will Retire After Helming C.S. Lewis' Narnia Film The Silver Chair

Director Joe Johnston recently attended Comic Con Paris to talk about his upcoming film, The Silver Chair, which is an adaptation of  C.S. Lewis' fourth book in the Chronicles of Narnia series.

It was there that the filmmaker announced that this will be his final film that he will retire when it's complete. For the most part, I'm a big fan of the films that Johnston has made in his career and it's kind of sad that he won't make any more movies after he makes The Silver Chair

Some of Johnston's most well-known films include Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, The RocketeerJumanjiJurassic Park III, The Wolfman, and Captain America: The First Avenger.  In my opinion, the best film he made in his career, though, was a little movie called October Sky, which stars a young Jake Gyllenhaal. That's actually one of my favorite movies of all time.

Narnia: The Silver Chair Is Director Joe Johnston's Final Movie

Narnia: The Silver Chair Is Director Joe Johnston's Final Movie
We haven't heard anything about The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair since late April, when director Joe Johnston signed on. Sony hasn't issued a formal release date at this time, but the filmmaker put in an appearance at Paris Comic Con, where he not only confirmed that production will begin next winter, with prep work starting next July, but also that this will be his last movie as a director. Here's what he had to say, when asked during an interview if this will in fact be his last directorial effort, while also confirming the production schedule.

"That's the plan. It will take a couple of years to make the film as we won't be able to start shooting next winter in New Zealand, on the South Island, which will be summer down there. And post and the visual effects will take another year and it'll be 2019, and I

Joe Johnston says The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair will be his last film

Back in April of this year it was announced that Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston is set to revive the Chronicles of Narnia franchise with an adaptation of C.S. LewisThe Silver Chair.

The filmmaker has been giving an update on the project at a convention in Paris, where he also revealed that it is likely to be his final feature film.

“That’s the plan,” said Johnson when asked if it will be his last movie (via Arts). “It will take a couple of years to make the film as we won’t be able to start shooting next winter in New Zealand, on the South Island – it’ll be summer down there – and post and the visual effects will take another year and it’ll be 2019, and I think I’m ready to go do something else.

Universal wants Channing Tatum for Van Helsing in the Dark Universe

Universal has already assembled plenty of star power for its Dark Universe, and it seems they could be looking to add another A-lister, with THR reporting that Channing Tatum is being eyed for the role of monster hunter Abraham Van Helsing.

Van Helsing made his debut in Bram Stoker’s original Dracula novel, and has made numerous appearances on the big screen, having been portrayed by the likes of Edward Van Sloan, Peter Cushing, Laurence Olivier, Anthony Hopkins, Peter Fonda, Mel Brooks and Christopher Plummer. His last Universal appearance came in 2004’s Van Helsing movie, where he was portrayed by Hugh Jackman.

Tom Cruise is Being Blamed For The Mummy Because He Was Given Creative Control

It looks like studio insiders are starting to point the finger at Tom Cruise for all of the faults in The Mummy. The movie was supposed to be the big awesome film to launch Universal Pictures' Dark Universe. These movies would build a monster universe that would also include Frankenstein, The Wolfman, The Invisible Man, and more. Unfortunately, the movie didn't do as well as the studio hoped and the critics haven't been too kind to it either.

According to Variety, The Mummy ended up being "a textbook case of a movie star run amok." The report goes on to say that Cruise had “excessive control” over the creative direction of the story.

"Universal, according to sources familiar with the matter, contractually guaranteed Cruise control of most aspects of the project, from script approval to post-production decisions. He also had a great deal of input on the film’s marketing and release strategy,

Mark Cerulli Reviews "The Mummy" Starring Tom Cruise

  • CinemaRetro
By Mark Cerulli

Anyone who grew up in the 1970s fondly remembers “Chiller Theater” playing on Wpix in the NY area. Chiller introduced me to all the Universal classics – Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman and, of course, Karloff’s 1932 addition, The Mummy. Universal’s new re-imagining of their beloved classic isn’t that Mummy, not by a long shot– but we’re in a different time and a different world, so why not?

This new Mummy stars Tom Cruise as Nick Morton, an Army commando/antiquities raider who finds and sells priceless relics on the black market. He’s stolen a map from a lovely, combative British archaeologist (Annabelle Wallis) that leads him to modern day, ultra dangerous Iraq. After he and his Army bro (Jake Johnson) call in an airstrike to save them from insurgents, a missile blast reveals the hidden tomb of Ahmanet, an Egyptian Princess who murdered her

Review: The Mummy (2017)

“Utterly devoid of soul,” Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe) notifies protagonist Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) as to what will become of the person that the titular creature has cursed. Soulless is also an applicable description for The Mummy, the inaugural entry of Universal’s Dark Universe, though not due to inactivity – noises and effects are bounteous here – but rather the inability to offer a straight answer for “What kind of film are you?”

Prior to meeting the doctor, which is at the halfway point, The Mummy exerts a firm hold on “adventure with horror.” After a chilling sequence detailing how the jealousy of one Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) leads her to a wrapped demise (and the first occasion where the Algerian actress exhibits her scene-stealing ability), the film switches to thoroughly cheeky antiquities retriever Nick and his gratingly over-cautious pal, Chris Vail (Jake Johnson), eyeing a treasure cache in the

‘The Mummy’ Composer Brian Tyler Gets Deep About Film’s Score: Hear an Exclusive Clip

‘The Mummy’ Composer Brian Tyler Gets Deep About Film’s Score: Hear an Exclusive Clip
Brian Tyler wrote half an hour’s worth of music for “The Mummy” before director Alex Kurtzman even started shooting. The “Fate of the Furious” composer was on the film for a year and a half, ultimately recording well over two hours of music (for a film that only runs 107 minutes) with an 84-piece orchestra and 32-voice choir at London’s Abbey Road.

“There was more music than they could actually put in the theatrical version,” Tyler told Variety from Paris, where he attended the premiere of the Tom Cruise film. “I scored extra themes, backstory, mythology, all sorts of things.” And in an era when so many directors demand scores that avoid memorable melody, Tyler created a score with at least half a dozen identifable themes that intertwine and develop in the classic sense of scores past. Here is an excerpt from Tyler’s exotic-sounding main theme, complete with

The Mummy Review

Director Alex Kurtzman accepts the daunting task of kickstarting Universal’s “Dark Universe” with The Mummy, and holy hexes, first impressions are not favorable. Wonky structuring and general tone mishandling never unearth a confident vision. Be it Tom Cruise’s obsession with Annabelle Wallis’ “15-second-man” comment or Sofia Boutella’s male-gaze-y mummification, reboot aesthetics gamble lax horror representation on a losing hand. Generic jumps, blurry action – at least dialogue peppers in the words “dark” and “monster” a whole bunch! You know, because we require needless reminders that the movie is “dark,” and there sure are more “monsters” on the horizon (Frankenstein, Invisible Man, Phantom of the Opera, etc.). Expect the “blackened” mainstream thrillification that genre fans so dreadfully feared – frantic yet bland, heavy CGI and one woefully mistold tale.

Mr. Cruise stars as Nick Morton, an Iraq-based sergeant who abandons post to sell “local antiquities” on the black market alongside

Author: Scott Davis

Universal Pictures’ brand-new cinematic universe, the Dark Universe, is to begin this week with the release of The Mummy, the long-awaited remake of the classic monster movie which stars Tom Cruise.

Cruise and his co-stars have been doing a big promotional tour of the globe in recent weeks, as had the film’s director Alex Kurtzman, who is also part of the producing of the newly formed Universe. As well as the new reimagined film, attentions have turned to the recently-announced franchise which has already secured the services of Cruise, Russell Crowe, Sofia Boutella and now Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem, who will play The Invisible Man and Frankenstein’s Monster respectively.

‘Captain America’ Director Joe Johnston To Reboot The ‘Narnia’ Franchise With ‘The Silver Chair’

Is “Captain America: The First Avenger” the best of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies? The correct answer is, of course, “for the first half, yes.” The introduction to Chris Evans’ WW2 super-soldier is an evocative, beautifully realized, rather charming, funny-without-being-quippy joy in its first half, and certainly the most emotionally potent of the Marvel films, before getting quite boring quite fast in its action-heavy second half.

Even so, it remains one of the better McU movies, so it’s a little puzzling that Joe Johnston, the film’s director — who was also behind films including “The Rocketeer,” “Jumanji,” “Jurassic Park III” and, uh, “The Wolfman” (though he only came on to that mess a month before shooting began, so don’t blame him too much) — didn’t get more credit for it.

16 of the Worst Films Ever Nominated for an Oscar — Including a Few 2017 Academy Award Nominees

Suicide Squad’ (Courtesy: Clay Enos/Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

The Academy Awards are meant to celebrate the best that Hollywood has to offer us each year — but sometimes a few less-than-stellar films can slip through the cracks. It doesn’t happen that often in the major categories and, when it does, these duds usually pop up in the categories that fly under the radar. Let’s take a look at the films that meet the criteria of having been panned by critics and somehow landing an Oscar nomination this year and others in the 21st century.

Just to be transparent about the qualifications a film would need to meet to be included in this story, we’re looking at those that were at least nominated for an Oscar — if they won, even better — and that registered as “rotten” on “Rotten” films would be

‘Nerdland’ Trailer: Patton Oswalt and Paul Rudd Need an Instant Fame Plan
Nerdland comes from the mind of Andrew Kevin Walker, the writer behind Se7en, Wong Kar-wai’s killer BMW short film “The Follow,” and a supposedly great script that Joel Schumacher butchered and rewrote into 8mm. Not since the 2010 remake of The Wolfman has Walker had a feature film credit, but we’ll soon see an original, R-rated animated movie with his name on it. Below, […]
