Laff 2017 Review Round-Up: Replace, Midnighters, Never Here, and Desolation

16 August 2017 2:48 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in June, the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival took over Southern California, hosting screenings at numerous locations and featuring numerous genre films that horror and sci-fi fans should definitely keep on their radars in the coming months. Here are my thoughts on three of the movies that I had the opportunity to watch at the festival:

Replace: As far genre feature film debuts go, co-writer/director Norbert Keil has a lot to be proud of with Replace, a stunning and beautifully executed cinematic mystery that’s part body horror/part psychological thriller. Something of a hallucinatory fever dream at times, Keil has crafted an intriguing and chilling portrait of just how far some folks are willing to go in the name of vanity, and the whole affair is anchored by a trio of powerhouse performances by Rebecca Forsythe, Barbara Crampton, and Lucie Aron.

In Replace, we’re introduced to »

Ron Howard Shares Exciting New Videos From Untitled Han Solo 'Star Wars' Movie Set

10 August 2017 6:57 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While secrecy is incredibly important on the set of the new Han Solo Star Wars movie, director Ron Howard is still sharing some on-set pics to give fans a tiny glimpse at the long-awaited project.

Taking to twitter on Thursday, Howard shared a short video showing the crew getting ready for a crane shot, and gave a glimpse at a massive green-screen curtain surrounding the perimeter of set -- showing how the film will blend CGI with on-location filming.

"Rehearsing a crane shot as we wait for sundown," the two-time Oscar winner captioned the short clip.

Later, Howard posted a fascinatingly cryptic video of what appears to be the shouldering wreckage of a damaged speeder lying in an abandoned junkyard.

"Where old Speeders go to die," Howard hinted in the caption.

Marvel Debuts 13 New Stills For The Gifted

9 August 2017 9:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that Fox has formally slated X-Men spinoff The Gifted for a Monday night premiere, bumping Gotham to a Thursday night timeslot in the process, the network is beginning to drum up excitement for Bryan Singer and Matt Nix’s long-anticipated family drama.

Hatched as a collaboration between 20th Century Fox and Marvel, The Gifted chronicles the extraordinary journey of two vanilla, powerless parents – played here by Amy Acker and Stephen Moyer – who soon discover that their two children are harboring mutant abilities. And you thought teenage tantrums were bad enough.

And so, just as Lauren (Gotham‘s Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White) grapple with their newfound powers, The Gifted really kicks into gear when our dysfunctional family is forced to hit the road to evade oncoming governmental forces. Not unlike the Transigen corporation featured in Logan, those shady operatives want nothing more than to pluck Lauren »

SAG-aftra’s Funds Held in Trust Jump 7.1% to $183.9 Million

1 August 2017 6:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

SAG-aftra’s funds held in trust for others have increased by 7.1% to $183.9 million since last year, according to the union’s latest filing with the federal government.

Those funds have been at the center of a long-running dispute, dating back to a 2007 suit filed by Ken Osmond (“Leave It to Beaver”) over how foreign levies are handled by the union. Osmond settled his suit in 2011.

The disclosure of the increase came in the July 31 filing of SAG-aftra’s Lm-2 report with the U.S. Department of Labor for the fiscal year that ended on April 30 in the category of “funds held in trust for others.” The 2016 report showed a 4.5% gain in the funds held for others to $171.4 million; the 2015 report showed a 7.5% hike to $164.3 million; the 2014 report listed those funds at $153.04 million, a 16% jump from 2013’s figure of $132.26 million.

A SAG-aftra spokesperson said Tuesday in response to a question from Variety: “The growth is due to increased »

1 August 2017 9:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Toronto International Film Festival will premiere James Franco’s comedy-drama “The Disaster Artist” as part of its Midnight Madness section of genre titles.

The Disaster Artist” screened in March as a work in progress at South by Southwest, where it received a standing ovation. Critics were impressed with Franco’s performance as Tommy Wiseau in the film about the making of Wiseau’s 2003 so-bad-that-it’s-good film “The Room.” A24 and New Line have given the film an awards-season Dec. 1 release.

The 10-film Midnight Madness section also includes “Brawl in Cell Block 99,” starring Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Carpenter; the world premiere of Brian Taylor’s “Mom and Dad,” starring Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair; Seth Smith’s “The Crescent”; Ryuhei Kitamura’s action thriller “Downrange”; and U.K. director David Bruckner’s “The Ritual,” with Rafe Spall and Robert James-Collier.

Twin Peaks Recap: Return of the Queen

31 July 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It took 12 whole episodes, but Audrey Horne (Sherilyn Fenn) has finally returned to our television screens.

The Twin Peaks chat rooms, message boards and Twitter feeds have been speculating for years on end about where we would find her and how (Is she in Hollywood? Is she the mysterious billionaire in New York? Is she still in a coma? Was she horribly disfigured in the bank explosion? Is she now running One Eyed Jacks?). But I am fairly certain that no one saw this outcome, this development, this new Audrey.

At first I found it confusing and jarring: that weird guy is Audrey’s husband? »

Hollywood Reacts to Trump’s Transgender Military Ban: The ‘Cruelest’ and ‘Pettiest’ President

26 July 2017 8:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Leaders in Hollywood reacted swiftly and severely on social media following President Trump’s tweets that the government would no longer “accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military.”

“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail,” he wrote, reversing an Obama-era policy announced last year allowing transgender people to serve openly.

Out gay actor and prominent Lgbt activist George Takei was one of the first to respond. “History shall record that you are not only the stupidest, most incompetent president ever, but also the cruelest and pettiest,” he tweeted. “Donald: With your ban on trans people from the military, you are on notice that you just pissed off the wrong community. »

Pixar, Disneytoons new movies teased

Don Kaye Jul 17, 2017

A “suburban fantasy world” is the subject of a new Pixar film, whilst there might just be a Planes spin-off coming too...

Although Pixar has sequels like Toy Story 4 and The Incredibles 2 in the works, the studio still continues to develop and produce original movies. John Lasseter took the opportunity at D23 in California over the weekend to announce a brand new original project from the company, an untitled “suburban fantasy world” movie to be helmed by Monsters University director Dan Scanlon.

Coming to the stage with little else at this point but some concept art, Scanlon was armed with one more thing: the emotional inspiration behind the film. Scanlon detailed how he lost his father when he was very young, with just a few words on a voice recording to even know what he sounded like, and that he and his brother have always »

Toy Story 4 undergoes a director change

Don Kaye Jul 17, 2017

John Lasseter isn't directing Toy Story 4 anymore, he confirms.

At Disney’s D23 Expo 2017 in Anaheim, California over the weekend, Pixar and Disney Animation head John Lasseter surprised the packed convention hall by revealing that he was stepping down as the co-director of Toy Story 4.

Lasseter did not give a reason why he was not going to co-direct his first feature since Cars 2 in 2011, but instead focused on introducing his co-director Josh Cooley, who will now receive sole directing credit on the fourth Toy Story entry. No other plot or cast details were revealed for the 2019 release.

Cooley began his career at Pixar in 2004 as an intern and later worked as a storyboard artist on The Incredibles, Cars, Ratatouille, Up and Cars 2. He also was a screenwriter on Inside Out, and wrote and directed two shorts, including Riley’s First Date?

The Incredibles 2 Begins Immediately After The First Film

14 July 2017 3:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Hollywood seems dead set on reviving or sequelizing pretty much every property under the sun, but for the longest time it seemed like there would be one beloved film that would go on unacknowledged and left to sit alone on its shelf, and that was Pixar’s 2004 film, The Incredibles. While a sequel seemed like a good proposition, it didn’t help that its creator, filmmaker Brad Bird went on to the world of live-action with movies like Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and Tomorrowland. With the more big budget fare on the horizon, it seemed like fans would have to be okay moving forward without another movie. 

But what exactly would an Incredibles 2 entail? Plus, given how long it’s been since the first one (13 years), what would be the timeline? Would it take place in real time, kind of like how the Toy Story series did, or would »

‘Spider-Man Homecoming’: How Jon Watts Channeled John Hughes

14 July 2017 2:06 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When director Jon Watts (“Cop Car”) met with Marvel for the first time about “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” they told him to infuse the reboot with an ’80s John Hughes high school rite of passage focus. Watts was already there: “Pretty in Pink,” “The Breakfast Club,” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” were his touchstones.

“Those were the movies we grew up on,” Watts said. “I remember that age and you’re just constantly screwing up. You don’t know what to do yet,  and you don’t know where you fit into the world.”

Capturing the Hughes Vibe

With the decidedly younger Tom Holland making his rough-and-tumble Spidey debut in “Captain America: Civil War,” Watts had a valuable head start with “Homecoming.” This brainy teenage version of the superhero finds himself way in over his head, ditching class, canceling dates, and fumbling his way as a crime fighter. It truly was like channeling the late Hughes. »
