Paramount and DreamWorks Pictures 2009 Picture Preview

30 December 2008 11:40 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Paramount Pictures has just unveiled their 2009 preview and in rather lackluster form I may say as new images from anticipated features such as Martin Scorese's Shutter Island, Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones and Star Trek were nowhere to be found. Fanboy favorites such as G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen also saw zilch in the updated imagery department. We do, however, have new pics from Eddie Murphy's next kid flick, the previously titled Nowhereland, now labeled as Imagine That and to be honest that is about as exciting as it gets in the updates department. All the cast, director and synopsis information is listed over the course of the next few pages as well as all the release dates for 15 new features. Surprisingly enough, only one of them is actual a Paramount Pictures solo release as the majority of these belong to their previous partner DreamWorks. »

Kebbel Taken By the Story of Silver Cord

10 December 2008 | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Following up on this find last week regarding the supernatural drama/thriller Silver Cord , ShockTillYouDrop.com went to star Arielle Kebbel ( The Uninvited ) to get an update on the project. "We have not filmed yet, it's postponed at the moment," she reveals. "The movie deserves to get made. To sign on to tell the story was like a dream come true." Her desire to participate in the film is genuine for a number of reasons, namely because the plot is inspired by true events. Director and co-writer James Ordonez based much of the story on his brother who was declared clinically dead on multiple occasions. He eventually passed away in 2004. Such an intriguing premise captured Kebbel. " Silver Cord is about a man who suffers from a disease where »

Kebbel's Suspicious Research for Red Mist

9 December 2008 | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

"High five!" smiles actress Arielle Kebbel, raising her hand, when I confess I'm happy to see Paddy Breathnach's UK horror movie Red Mist is retaining it's original title instead of its second, temporary, moniker Freakdog . She agrees, the latter name simply did not fit. We're sitting at the Palomar Hotel talking about her turn in the theatrical release The Uninvited , but our conversation has segued to the other genre fare we'll see her in quite soon, including Red Mist , an Anchor Bay DVD release. In the film, a group of medical students pull a prank on a janitor, sending him into a coma. But he exacts revenge from his hospital bed when one of the students injects him with an experiment drug to revive him. Sarah Carter, Stephen Dillane, Andrew Lee Potts, »

The Screams of Sitges 2008

4 November 2008 1:17 PM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Beginning October 2, the Sitges Festival Internacional de Catalunya 2008 was a sun-drenched 10-day fiesta teeming with talent and terror. Every major genre movie of current note was on show in the picturesque Spanish resort town’s veteran festival, which surprised organizers Angel Sala and Mike Hostench by equaling last year’s record-breaking figures—especially as this 41st edition took place against the gloomiest of economic backdrops.

But as Sala pointed out in his speech at the closing awards ceremony, people need to escape to fantasy/horror cinema more than ever in such trying times. And Sitges certainly put the credit-crunch blues on hold for anyone attending the numerous gala events. Like the two Surprise Movies: Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea, genius animator Hayao Miyazaki’s delightful reworking of the “Little Mermaid” fairy tale, and Michael Doughtery’s nice and nasty Trick ’R Treat (pictured above).

Zack and Miri's Elizabeth Banks in 'The Uninvited'

1 November 2008 12:02 AM, PDT | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

Suddenly, she is everywhere. Elizabeth Banks has three movies in theaters with a one-month span. There's W., the brand new Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and Role Models, which is due out next week. (If you want to read our reviews, here's W. and here's Zack and Miri.)

We're big fans of Banks around here. She has that girl-next-door thing about her and based on her work in Zack and Miri, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and Slither, she's game to try just about anything. That's a good quality to have as an actor. One thing we hadn't seen her play is a maniacal villain. We'll get that opportunity in January when Banks appears in The Uninvited. Banks says she based her character on Rebecca DeMornay in The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, which is a good place to start.

Here's a clip featuring Emily Browning and the surprisingly sinister Elizabeth Banks »

Bruce McDonald's Pontypool, which is a horror film that played Tiff but not in the regular horror section, now has a trailer. Get the info and a trailer link over at Twitchfilm. Flick looks pretty cool to me. Speaking of promo clips, Shock has one for Jamie Blanks' remake of Long Weekend, which is viewable right here.

Ji-woon Kim's very good A Tale of Two Sisters is about to spawn a remake of its own. It's called The Uninvited, it stars Elizabeth Banks, and MTV Movies Blog has an exclusive clip. And Bloody-d has new photos from Dread, the upcoming Clive Barker adaptation, while Arrow has some new shots from this weekend's Splinter.

Dread Central reports that Dominic Sena's graphic novel adaptation Whiteout, which stars mega-hottie Kate Beckinsale, has been pushed back to next September. And Shock has some news on the DVD front regarding Eden Lake »

Fan Rant: The Power of Interesting Casting

21 October 2008 10:03 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Saw some movies last weekend. Some trailers, too. One was for a kidnapping thriller called Taken. A young woman is kidnapped, presumably for ransom, but little do the criminals know that their captive's father is some sort of secret agent badass who will stop at nothing to get his daughter back. Distressingly standard-issue stuff. Even worse, arguably, was The Uninvited -- just the title is so trite it practically begs you to forget it. I mean, this is at least the twelfth movie called The Uninvited. (For the record, there have only been seven Takens.) The plot concerns a teenager who returns home following the death of her mother to find that dad has shacked up with a new girlfriend who, it would appear, is a serial murderess. Also, there are ghosts, J-horror style.

This is not promising. Ordinarily I'd drag myself to these movies out of a sense of obligation, »

Cinematical Seven: Best Asian Horror Films That Haven't Been Remade

20 October 2008 7:32 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

(All this month we'll be bringing back some of our favorite Halloween-themed posts, as well as digging up some brand new stuff from beyond the grave. Enjoy!)

By: Peter Martin

"The answer is not in the avoidance of remakes. The plain fact is that remakes of very good original films sometimes fail because they have not been remade by people as talented as those who made the first versions." -- David O. Selznick, 1956.

The famed producer of Gone With the Wind and Rebecca was on a downward slide when he wrote the above in a memo to the president of 20th Century Fox. Selznick spent much of the 1950s repackaging and selling his earlier productions to studios, pocketing tidy fees for his efforts. The modern-day equivalent is Roy Lee. As explained in a profile in The New Yorker: "What Lee does for a living sounds simple enough, but no »
