Two new one-sheets have been revealed by IGN for the Seth Grahame-Smith ('Pride and Prejudice and Zombies') action feature adaption 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'. The Timur Bekmambetov ('Wanted') helmed project sees Russian filmmaker return to vampire-related storytelling following his popular night and day fantasy thrills in Night Watch (Aka 'Nochnoy dozor') and it's subsequent follow-up Day Watch ('Dnevnoy dozor'). And the two new posters certainly embrace the night and day elements also both featuring honest Abe with a trusty axe in hand seated both in his Presidential home and also in a misty woodland. Benjamin Walker plays Mr President and is joined by Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winstead ('Death Proof'), Alan Tudyk ('Tucker and Dale vs Evil'), Anthony Mackie, Jimmi Simpson ('Stay Alive') and Robin McLeavy.

All round action gal Zoe Ball ('Death Proof') and all round smoking hottie Rachel Nichols -below ('P2') sit down together to discuss their new punch up project 'Raze'. The flick being touted as 'Fight Club' meets 'Hostel' sees the lovely cat-flighting couple meet when one of a young woman who is abducted by an elite, secret society wakes to find herself in the company of fifty other women who are, just like her, forced to fight for their lives in an unimaginable hell. Check out the two interview clips below where they try and answer questions surrounding the new action horror flick from director Josh C. Waller. Kenny Gage, Andy Pagana, Josh C.

"Breaking Dawn Part 1" continues to be number one at the box office, despite "The Muppets" opening on a family holiday weekend. With all of the success and money "Twilight" has enjoyed, it's bound to have lots of fans in Hollywood. Plenty of people there just want to jump on the bandwagon of something popular.
However, there are a number of celebrities who appear to be genuine Twi-hards. They may start watching "Twilight" as a joke, or read to the first book just to find out what the hype is about, but it ends up hooking them. They end up talking about it in interviews and tweeting about it much more than I imagine they expected.
We already know about the obvious celebrity Twi-hards like Dakota Fanning, who won the part of Jane after admitting her fandom, and any female child star under 15 years old. Here are 10 Twi-hard celebrities that you may not know about. »

This is no ordinary catfight. Long gone has the scratching and hair-pulling and inevitable mud-wrestle (sorry off tangent) as the Josh C. Waller helmed girl on girl kick-ass flick 'Raze' reveals a new still. The project which stars Rachel Nichols -below ('P2', 'Conan the Barbarian') and Zoe Bell ('Death Proof') has been described as 'Fight Club' meets 'Hostel' which seems like a good enough merging of ideas to me. Toss in a couple of hot chicks fighting to the death and by God you've got a movie! Bell will also serve as co-producer along with Robert Beaucage who has already promised hordes of spin-off potential for the project which may include 'web content, graphic novels and sequels'. Feast upon these gamely chicks much like your Thanksgiving turkeys below in the new still and teaser trailer. »
You don't have to know much about AfterEllen.com bloggers to know that we are suckers for women in tank tops. One of us even devotes substantial space on her personal blog to featuring such women — and we are ever so grateful.
Sometimes, however, a pretty woman in a tank top can lead us to places we're not sure we want to be. And that brings me to this — a publicity still for the movie Raze.
I confess, my first thought was that these two women — Sabrina (Zoë Bell) and Jamie (Rachel Nichols) — are asleep. After all, Jamie seems to be embracing Sabrina, and they are wearing the standard bedtime uniforms of lesbians everywhere: pajama pants and tank tops.
Actually, these two women are in a fight to the death and Jamie has Sabrina in a choke hold. That's what the "Fight or Die" tagline means.

One film that we've been touting highly here at the 'Bid is the upcoming all-female fight film Raze directed by Josh Waller. I mean what man wouldn't want to see Zoe Bell (Kill Bill, Death Proof) and Rachel Nichols (Conan, Star Trek) kicking each others asses unmercifully until one of them literally taps out. The film is being described as Hostel vs. Fight Club and with a tagline that reads, "Fight or Die" you better bet your sweet ass that we… »
If your idea of a good movie is Rachel Nichols (Conan the Barbarian) and Zoe Bell (Whip It) fighting each other to the death in nothing but wife-beaters and sweatpants, just go ahead and hit the jump right now. If you need a little more prodding, how about the fact that their new project, Raze, has been touted as a cross between Hostel and Fight Club? In the film by director Josh C. Waller (The Nail), Jamie (Nichols) and Sabrina (Bell) are pitted against each other in a vicious fight for survival in what appears to be a tournament-style death-match. The tagline of the movie reads, “Fight or Die” and that pretty much explains it all. Hit the jump to check out some images from the picture. The first image features an action scene between Bell and Nichols in which the former is about to be choked out. I’m »

It was exactly a week ago that we first brought word of Raze, an all-female fight film directed by Josh Waller with Zoe Bell (Kill Bill, Death Proof) and Rachel Nichols (Conan, Star Trek) locked in a fight to the death in what has been described as a cross of Fight Club and Hostel. The picture had just begun principal photography at that point and today we were slipped the first example of that photography in the form of a new promo image that features the leading ladies in action. Clearly this is no glammed up affair, this is going to be down and dirty stuff ... »

Josh C. Waller rolls cameras on his feature debut, Raze , today, and we have a look at the promo. What is the film? Plot details are slim, but the project is described as an action/horror film. " Fight Club meets Hostel ," as Raze 's Facebook page puts it. Here's the good stuff: It stars Rachel Nichols ( G.I. Joe , P2 ) and Zoe Bell ( Death Proof ), who is also serving as a producer. Waller's credits include a couple of short films and a bit of acting work. Dig on the teaser and its use of the Tron Legacy score while the gals work out their aggression. Keep tabs on the Facebook page for more. »
Director Josh Waller knows what boys like. And somewhere on that list for most is that boys like to watch attractive women punch each other. It doesn't happen very often. We're all too mature and polite for that. But when it does go down, well, it has no difficulty attracting an audience. Particularly not if the women in question know what they're doing.The women of Raze know what they're doing.Pitched as a blend of Fight Club and Hostel, Raze pits Rachel Nichols (Conan The Barbarian, GI Joe, Star Trek) against Zoe Bell - arguably the finest female stunt performer in the world, her talents on stunning display in both Kill Bill and Death Proof - in a hand-to-hand fight to the death.The film has just »
It’s funny how time can alter your perception of a film. When I first saw Jackie Brown I wasn’t prepared for it. Part of me was expecting more of what I saw in Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, but what I got was something completely different. Jackie Brown is Quentin Tarantino’s most mature and sophisticated film by some distance, and remains so even to this day. In fact, it took a few viewings to fully appreciate just how good it actually is.
I don’t think that I’m alone in this, either. Only Death Proof has a lower rating on IMDb out of Tarantino’s films, so to some extent it still lacks the respect that many of his other films receive. »

He bravely took on the Holocaust in Inglourious Basterds, but how will the brash and breezy director tackle the sensitive subjects of slavery and forced prostitution?
When word broke several years back that Quentin Tarantino was working on a second world war romp in which a platoon of Jewish American soldiers set out to kill Hitler, not everyone was convinced it was a good idea. It seemed like a highly unsuitable subject for Tarantino's brash and bloodythirsty B-movie bombast, and a vocal minority of critics couldn't quite get their heads around what the film-maker was up to, even after seeing the final movie.
The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw went so far as to call Inglourious Basterds "achtung-achtung-ach-mein-Gott atrocious", adding: "It isn't funny; it isn't exciting; it isn't a realistic war movie, yet neither is it an entertaining genre spoof or a clever counterfactual wartime yarn. It isn't emotionally involving or »

31 – Rosemary’s Baby
Directed by Roman Polanski
Roman Polanski’s brilliant horror-thriller was nominated for two Oscars, winning Best Supporting Actress for Ruth Gordon. The director’s first American film, adapted from Ira Levin’s horror bestseller, is a spellbinding and twisted tale of Satanism and pregnancy. Supremely mounted, the film benefits from it’s strong atmosphere, apartment setting, eerie childlike score and polished production values by cinematographer William Fraker. The cast is brilliant, with Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes as the young couple playing opposite Ruth Gordon and Sidney Blackmer, the elderly neighbors. There is ominous tension in the film from first frame to last – the climax makes for one of the greatest endings of all time. Rarely has a film displayed such an uncompromising portrait of betrayal as this one. Career or marriage – which would you choose?
30 – Eraserhead
Directed by David Lynch
Filmed intermittently over the course of a five-year period, »
25 – Halloween
Directed by John Carpenter
1978 – Us
A historical milestone that single-handedly shaped and altered the future of the entire genre. This seminal horror flick actually gets better with age; it’s downright transcendent and holds up with determination as an effective thriller that will always stand head and shoulders above the hundreds of imitators to come. Halloween had one hell of an influence on the entire film industry. You have to admire how Carpenter avoids explicit onscreen violence, and achieves a considerable power almost entirely through visual means, using its widescreen frame, expert hand-held camerawork, and terrifying foreground and background imagery.
24 – Black Christmas
Directed by Bob Clark
1974 – Canada
We never did find out who Billy was. Maybe it’s for the best, since they never made any sequels to Bob Clark’s seminal slasher film, a film which predates Carpenter’s Halloween by four years. Whereas Texas Chainsaw Massacre, released the same year, »
With the latest addition of Kerry Washington, the already impressive cast of Quentin Tarantino's next movie, "Django Unchained," just got a little more impressive. Throw in his other recent hire -- Don Johnson -- and it's clear that the auteur is up to his usual quirky casting tricks. Tarantino has always been known for his, ah, interesting choices with his ensemble casts, pulling from both mainstream Hollywood actors and the dustiest corners of pop culture, and resurrecting the careers of fallen stars.
"Django Unchained" is no exception, but how does it stack up with the rest of Tarantino's oeuvre? It's got some tough competition from what have become iconic ensembles, so let's take a look at where the new cast stands in comparison.
The Rundown: The color-coded cast set the tone for the rest of Tarantino's movies. »
- Kevin P. Sullivan
Pretty much all of the techniques and trademarks we associate with Quentin Tarantino are in Jackie Brown, yet many still think of it as the least Tarantinoesque (it’s not a name that lends itself to adjectives) of his work. Perhaps that’s because here he ties himself down to someone else’s story, so his more self-indulgent urges are kept in check. There are plenty of stylistic flourishes and the dialogue is sharp and witty, but nothing is there that doesn’t develop the story or illuminate the characters.
The movie was not a financial hit and audiences didn’t take to it straight away, as they had done with Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction: on IMDb only Death Proof is rated lower of his films. But while audiences may have been underwhelmed by that film’s shallowness, Jackie Brown, which is based on a novel by Elmore Leonard, »

Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.
A Hollywood stunt driver (Gosling) moonlighting as a ‘wheelman’ discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong.
Nicolas Winding Refn is a name that we’re going to be hearing more and more often from Hollywood. This film exploded onto the international festival scene at the Cannes Film Festival, where Refn was nominated and awarded the prize for best direction; which is no mean feat! [Other recipients to name a few are Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Jean Luc Godard, Abbas Kiarostami, Michael Haneke – I could go on]. I guess that a lot of the directing plaudits go to the visual construction of the picture, so I’ll start there. From the outset, based on the synopsis, you may have been expecting some kind of »
