Steven Spielberg’s ‘Robopocalypse’ May Be Moving Forward Again

18 April 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

We’re been waiting to see what film Steven Spielberg directs next, to follow his seventh Oscar nomination for directing (two resulted in wins) for the historical drama Lincoln. The filmmaker legend was originally prepared to jump right into making the sci-fi apocalyptic blockbuster Robopocalypse, but budgetary and creative concerns resulted in the project being indefinitely delayed; since then, Spielberg has circled an eclectic collection of scripts, including the true-story drama American Sniper (which Clint Eastwood is now directing instead) and, most recently, a prospective remake of the classic musical West Side Story.

Robopocalypse is a cinematic adaptation of the book written by Daniel H. Wilson; a World War Z-style oral history novel, Wilson’s source material details the human ...

David Koechner Joins Scouts Vs Zombies

17 April 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just when you thought nothing more could be done with the zombie movie sub-genre, along comes a group of boy scouts and suddenly, we’re heading back into battle. With Paramount putting his new horror-comedy – Scouts Vs Zombies – together, writer/director Christopher Landon will be hoping that the appearance of beloved comedy actor, David Koechner, will help set the kind of tone necessary to bring a new edge to this familiar concept.

Centring on a small American town, Scouts Vs Zombies sees a group of Boy Scouts try to defend their neighbourhood from a zombie attack. Joseph Morgan (The Vampire Diaries), Tye Sheridan (Mud) and Logan Miller (Growing Up Fisher) are already on board, and they will now joined by Koechner, as Scout Leader. No stranger to the horror-comedy arena, David Koechner featured in Piranha 3Dd in 2012, as well as being a well-known figure following his work on the Anchorman movies, »

Chloe Moretz leaves her body behind in 'If I Stay' trailer

16 April 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After playing social outcasts in "Kick-Ass," "Let Me In" and "Carrie," Chloe Grace Moretz is finally playing a normal teen in "If I Stay." At least, the new trailer for the film starts out that way. Moretz plays a promising young cellist who seems to have it all --  a shot at Julliard, a nice family ("World War Z's" Mireille Enos plays her mom), and a handsome rocker bf played by Jamie Blackley ("Snow White and the Huntsman"). Things take a tragic turn when a car crash sends her into a coma, and triggers an out-of-body experience where she experiences the world from the outside looking in.  Powered by Moretz' perpetually sad-looking face -- and the inclusion of "Say Something" by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera -- the trailer offers the sort of romantic melancholia found in Nicholas Sparks movies, but with a subtly-played supernatural edge.  The »

14 April 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After starring in World War Z, superstar Brad Pitt seems to be interested in a lot of other war projects.

Here's the official synopsis of the 2012 book by Michael Hastings on which the film will be based: In the shadow of the hunt for Bin Laden and the United States’ involvement in the Middle East, General Stanley McChrystal, the »

New Teaser Trailer Reveals The Leftovers

14 April 2014 1:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s an interesting premise – a TV show set after The Rapture, created by Damon Lindelof (World War Z, Star Trek Into Darkness, Lost) and Tom Perrotta (Little Children) – but these kinds of projects fail more often than they succeed, because they lack the necessary tone. If the latest teaser trailer for The Leftovers is anything to go by, however, that won’t be the case with this latest endeavour from HBO.

Starring Justin Theroux (Wanderlust), Amy Brenneman (Private Practice), Carrie Coon (Intelligence), Christopher Eccleston (Thor: The Dark World) and Liv Tyler (Robot And Frank), The Leftovers is a brand new drama that focuses on the small American town of Mapleton after a large-scale disappearance. The trailer sets a mournful scene, as residents of this suburban community struggle to deal with the vanishing of over 100 people.

2014 MTV Movie Awards predictions: Is this the year for 'Hunger Games?'

11 April 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The MTV Movie Awards are coming your way on Sunday. The nominations this year, particularly for Movie of the Year, were interesting. I don't know that the wins will be, though, because frankly it seems like another young adult adaptation is poised to dominate after we got a bit of a breather from that sort of thing last year. I have no idea what I'm doing here. Yeah, the public votes, but I imagine there's plenty of rigging going on, too. So against reason, I'll try to predict them anyway. Don't use them for your office pool or anything (if you happen to work in an office so chill as to have an MTV Movie Awards pool, that is). Just try to follow my logic below and feel free to tell me why I'm wrong in the comments section.

San Diego State University Launches New Course in Zombie Culture

9 April 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Over the last decade or so, zombies have gone from a staple of horror entertainment to a major aspect of popular culture, and more and more modern college courses have been examining the undead phenomenon in a serious academic light. For example, this year saw the debut of a zombie apocalypse course at Central Michigan University, and a high school teacher has been using a Walking Dead video game as a teaching aid.      San Diego State University professor Emily Hicks acknowledges this trend, and has risen to the occasion by creating a zombie-based course this semester with a pretty unambiguous title: “Zombies.” That's it, no gray area there.   "We’re talking about blood and guts and all kinds of things that are sort of leveling, so I’ve found that some students are tired talking about multicultural issues in general in my other classes,” Hicks told Kbps News, “but not in the zombies class. »

A Monster Calls In October Of 2016

9 April 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Focus Features has announced that it will release its dark fantasy adaptation A Monster Calls, to be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, on October 16th, 2016.

Excepting superhero blockbusters and animated family flicks, no other major studio release has been dated as far as October of 2016, so Focus Features’ early scheduling indicates that the studio is highly confident in A Monster Calls‘ ability to break out at the box office.

The film was adapted from the novel of the same name by Patrick Ness, which was in turn inspired by an idea by Siobhan Dowd. Described as a “visually spectacular drama,” A Monster Calls focuses on a young boy who, reeling from his mother’s terminal cancer diagnosis and severe bullying at school, escapes into a fantastical world filled with sinister monsters. When one particularly horrific creature begins to appear outside the boy’s window every night, the two form a »
