Oscar-nominated filmmaker Bruce Sinofsky passed away at the age of 58 on Saturday morning. The news was confirmed by longtime collaborator Joe Berlinger. Bruce Sinofsky reportedly died from complications of diabetes, but there are no further details at this time.
Bruce Sinofsky spent the past thirty years as a documentary director, helping to create some of the most important true-life films of the past three decades. He is best known for co-directing Metallica: Some Kind of Monster with Joe Berlinger, which looks at the band as they go through relationship counseling while trying to create a new album. Both Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky are also created with helping to free the West Memphis Three with their Paradise Lost documentary trilogy, which helped uncover evidence in the case against three wrongly convicted men accused of child murder. The final chapter in this harrowing saga, Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory, earned both Joe Berlinger »
Happy Friday 13th everyone! Here are a few guidelines for surviving the day:
-Don’t split into groups to search an area faster.
-Don’t trip over that annoyingly placed root/piece of rope/dead body when escaping your assaliant.
-But Do hit up the Friday 13th: The Ultimate Collection (Parts I – VIII + Jason Mask) – UK link here – stay inside and ride out this fateful day. Unless you’re reading this in an isolated cabin near a creepy lake, in which case, you’re as good as gone. And who’s your network provider? Because that’s amazing you even have reception out there.
Below is the quite ridiculous Friday 13th: The Ultimate Collection (Parts I – VIII + Jason Mask), a 50,000 limited edition print of 8 discs and 736 minutes of horror viewing. Some as in ‘scary’ horror viewing. Others as in ‘jeez, that’s terrible’ horror viewing.

Mark Hamill called in to the Schmoes Know Podcast last night, and had a blast talking to the guys about his projects past, present and future. Obviously what we're all most interested in his his imminent return as Luke Skywalker in J.J. Abrams Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and though he doesn't really give too much away (obviously), he does drop a few tidbits here and there. For instance, when asked if his initial perception of how Luke would evolve after Return of the Jedi wound up being accurate, he seems to dispel a pretty big rumor that was doing the rounds about the character. "Well part of the answer to that question… The final chapter indicated Luke would be terribly conflicted and might give in to darker impulses. Maybe in the direction of betraying someone before realizing the error in his ways. I was completely wrong in that assumption. »

Those who love the fusion of science fiction and horror are going to be happy to learn that Resident Evil The Final Chapter is finally moving forward. Production on the film had been called to a halt after franchise staple Milla Jovovich announced her second pregnancy with hubby and Resident Evil mastermind Paul W.S. Anderson. Well were finally moving beyond all that baby business and getting back into the world of zombies monsters and scientific insanity that feels impossible to truly figure out (thats not to say that a good portion of this franchise is anything less than a blast). »
The Resident Evil franchise has certainly received it fair share of negativity from a critical perspective, however casual moviegoers seem to have quite a fascination with Paul W.S. Anderson’s weird and wonderful post-apocalyptic world. Despite the fact that Milla Jovovich and her leather-clad exploits have failed to make a positive impact with critics, the series has made almost a billion dollars at the worldwide box office with only five films.
This is an extremely large commercial intake considering that Screen Gems have hardly dedicated the largest budget to their game-based horror franchise. I for one, have always been a huge fan and supporter of the films, as I strongly believe that they represent a thoroughly entertaining brand of B-Movie cinema, that is predominantly forgotten in todays market. Now, five months after announcing a delayed release date for the sixth film (thanks to her unexpected pregnancy), Jovovich has now confirmed »

Any good news for DreamWorks Animation at the 2014 global box office came at an exorbitant cost. While the toon studio’s slate was up 36% over last year at the global B.O. with $1.18B across three movies — Mr. Peabody & Sherman, How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Penguins Of Madagascar, productions costs for DreamWorks Animation surged 56% over 2013 with an estimated $422M, the second highest in the studio’s history since 2010, when it shelled out $460M for a three pic-slate that included Shrek Forever After, How To Train Your Dragon and Mega Mind (total global B.O. $1.57B) under its distribution deal with Paramount. And not only were budgets up, but the three of the five titles that Dwa delivered to its distrib partner 20th Century Fox during the past two years haven’t been the mass-appealing, humorous titles that the animation studio has built its brand upon — How to Train Your Dragon 2 »

You can’t keep a successful franchise down, not even with a newborn baby. Last year, Milla Jovovich and her husband director Paul W.S. Anderson announced they were expecting a second child together, which delayed the filming of the final film in the Resident Evil franchise, The Final Chapter. But word from Jovovich on her Facebook page suggests she is almost ready to return.
Says Jovovich, “I’m really proud of myself for not gaining the same amount of weight that I did with our first child (75 lbs.) because I have to be ready to start filming Resident Evil- The Final Chapter in August of this year and I will also be nursing an infant simultaneously.”
Shooting was set to roll in Cape Town, South Africa for what is set to be the last part in the long-running Resident Evil franchise, after the last one part, Retribution, was released in 2012.

Last August, it emerged that work on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter had been halted because director Paul W.S. Anderson and star/wife Milla Jovovich are expecting their second child. Now Jovovich has hit Facebook with a post (spotted by Coming Soon) that points to an August shoot for what is described as the final visit to Anderson’s Resident Evil universe.“I'm really proud of myself for not gaining the same amount of weight that I did with our first child (75 lbs.) because I have to be ready to start filming Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in August of this year,” the actress writes in typically candid style, “and I will also be nursing an infant simultaneously (get ready wardrobe department for Alice's new 'easy mama access' costume;)) so I don't want to be on any extreme diets to get ready to go back to 'action hero' mode!” Yes, »
Last June, director Paul Ws Anderson offered an update on Resident Evil 6, the supposed last instalment in the zombie action franchise. At the time, his comments mainly revolved around the film’s format, 3D, and the scripting process (he was halfway finished) indicating it probably wouldn’t meet its September 2014 release date.
Fast forward a few months and production was gearing up for an end-of-year shoot… which then collapsed after leading lady Milla Jovovich fell pregnant. Now, the actress has spoken out (via Facebook) about her pregnancy, and sneakily popped in a comment about the shoot for Resident Evil – The Final Chapter:
“I’m really proud of myself for not gaining the same amount of weight that I did with our first child (75 lbs.) because I have to be ready to start filming ‘Resident Evil- The Final Chapter’ in August of this year and I will also be nursing an infant simultaneously. »
