Female villains in the movies can usually be placed into two categories; the mentally deranged psychopath and the provocative seductress. This isn’t always the case of course, but it’s a fairly accurate basis to draw on. In honour of the nasty and glamorous sorceress Mizuki in 47 Ronin – the samurai epic out this December starring Keanu Reeves – we’ve reminisced on our favourite on-screen feminine scoundrels in cinema history. Mizuki has a tendency to turn into a dragon and go on rants about corpses and rivers of blood. In this list she joins the conniving, the insane, the alluring and the devilishly sexy. They’re all here, and we just love to hate them.
Mizuki – 47 Ronin (2013 Dir. Carl Rinsch)
Best Line: “Mountains of corpses will not stand in our way”
Morally dubious on the largest possible scale, this shape-shifting witch in upcoming action-fantasy epic 47 Ronin has the ability to »

Mindscape, from the creative mind behind Orphan and Unknown, Jaume Collet-Serra, is directed by Jorge Dorado and stars Mark Strong ("Low Winter Sun"), Taissa Farmiga ("American Horror Story"), and Brian Cox (Trick 'r Treat). It's produced by Collet-Serra, Juan Sola, Peter Safran, and Mercedes Gamero; Miguel Angel Faura is co-producer.
It is a hypnotic psychological thriller about a man with an extraordinary ability to enter people's minds and manipulate their memory. When he takes on the case of a brilliant troubled teenager, he winds up in a dangerous game of seduction and betrayal that spirals out of control.

If psychological thrillers are your thing, get ready for a cinematic excursion into the mind and memories of a character to determine whether they are a killer or a victim. From first time director Jorge Dorado and producer Jaume Collet-Serra comes Mindscape, a crime thriller with a dash of mind-exploring madness.
Leading man Mark Strong plays John Washington, a detective with the unique ability to enter people’s minds and memories (presumably to help people recall event details pertinent to solving cases). Washington takes on the case of a troubled teenage girl named Anna, played by up-and-coming young actress Taissa Farmiga, who is accused of an attempted triple homicide. To uncover the mystery surrounding Anna and her story, Washington will enter her mind and try to find out the truth: is Anna capable of killing, or is there something hidden in her memories that shows otherwise?
Trippy, huh? The film obviously brings Inception to mind, »

First announced as heading into production a year ago, here is the trailer for Mindscape, in which Mark Strong goes poking about inside the head of Taissa Farmiga and must face the mind-boggling consequences. Brian Cox, Noah Taylor and Saskia Reeves look on from the sidelines.As you'll have gathered from that, Strong plays some sort of investigator with the power to wander around inside people's memories. He's brought in to unravel a mystery surrounding a troubled teenager, but gets out of his depth when it seems she's able to manipulate what he experiences, making his version of events as unreliable as hers. Is she a killer or a victim? Like, woah.There are a few shades of Inception here, obviously, but also some echoes of The Cell - minus the insane production design. Familiar concepts then, but that doesn't mean Mindscape can't effectively find its own way.Jaume Collet-Serra's (Orphan, »
Is House of Wax and Orphan director Jaume Collet-Serra really enough of a name that movies can sell themselves by giving him a Tarantino-esque “Presented by” credit in their advertising? Likely not, but that’s not stopping Warner Bros. from trying to sell a new supernatural thriller called Mindscape with his name anyway, even though he’s just involved as one of its producers. The most unusual part of this development is that Mindscape isn’t the sort of subtitled, genre-heavy pick that studios usually pull these sorts of tricks on—actually it’s a pretty intriguing-looking thriller that’s seemingly performed completely in English, and it has big time movie star Mark Strong’s handsome and compelling face at its center to boot. Add in a supernatural element wherein Strong’s character can enter people’s memories and an up-and-coming young actress in Taissa Farmiga (The Bling Ring, American Horror Story), and this is exactly the »

Who out there has been waiting with bated breath for a thriller to come along that mashes Christopher Nolan.s mind-bending Inception with the inner-mind-wandering madness of Tarsem Singh.s The Cell? Because that movie is here, and it.s called Mindscape. The Spanish-made film is the first feature directed by Jorge Dorado and first-time writer Guy Holmes, and it has just dropped its first English language trailer, as seen above. You.ll notice the preview and most news out there about the film relies heavily on telling people director Jaume Collet-Serra produced this film, and had a hand in getting it made. Unlike most films that hinge themselves to a name to sell the film to audiences, I think Mindscape actually looks better than any of Collet-Serra.s films, including the Liam Neeson action flick Unknown and the weird evil child horror Orphan. A good psychological thriller is so »
Mark Strong is an awesome actor. AMC's series Low Winter Sun was a great showcase for the man who needs to get more starring roles outside of villains. One project that should get him some decent exposure is Jaume Collet-Serra's Mindscape. Collet-Serra is best known as the director of Orphan and the Liam Neeson flick Unknown. Mindscape, directed by Jorge Dorado, is produced by Collet-Serra and looks like a nice use of his visual style coupled with an Inception-style dream device that »

A familiar location will pop up in the next season of AandE's 'Bates Motel'. TV Guide have been chatting with stars Freddy Highmore, Vera Farmiga ('Orphan') and show creator Carlton Cuse whom all shared a few interesting details on what we an expect from the second season due to air early next year. The fruit cellar where Norma Bates' body was found in the original 'Psycho' is the new location that'll be getting some screen time in the new season and it looks like it'll continue to be quite a morbid place. The premiere episode itself will also see our young Norman continue his taxidermy skills and his latest project is certainly more significant than the dog he previously worked on.

Liam Neeson is back in butt kicking mode in the brand new movie trailer for Jaume Collet-Serra (director of "Unknown" and "Orphan") and Universal Pictures forthcoming action thriller, "Non-Stop."

Alongside Neeson in "Non-Stop", the cast includes Julianne Moore, Nate Parker, Michelle Dockery, Scoot McNairy, Bar Paly and Corey Stoll. "Non-Stop" is released across the Us and UK from February 28th, 2014. "Non-Stop" is a suspense thriller played out at 40,000 feet in the air.

Liam Neeson continues his surprising second-act career as an action hero in Non-Stop, a movie that finds him on a plane with people like Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery, Lupita Nyong'o, Scoot McNairy and Corey Stoll, and somehow getting cell service but it's not like he's using the reception to play Words with Friends.
As an air marshall, his private network is compromised and he's told that someone will be killed every 20 minutes if hundreds of thousands of dollars isn't deposited into an account...that's mysteriously in his name!
While the other passengers understandably worry about their safety and the motivation of the jumpy air marshall, lives are lost and all hell threatens to break loose in the latest movie from Jaume Collet-Serra, the director behind Orphan and another Neeson vehicle, Unknown.

The new high-flying thriller Non-stop has just boarded a new trailer and it's certainly a film you'll never catch as an in-flight movie. Starring Liam Neeson as a Federal Air Marshall who is confronted with a murderous ransom plot, while on a flight from New York to London (and you thought getting the middle seat sucked!), he must find a way to stop the threat before it kills everyone on the plane. Joining Neeson in the Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan) directed flick is Julianne »

Villains are an essential part of genre cinema. Though scores of filmmakers have attempted to create truly great villains throughout the history of film, only a few have succeeded in achieving this difficult goal.
This article will take a look at the great film villains of the 2000’s.
The criteria for this article is the same as my previous articles Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1970’s, Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1980’s and Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1990’s: the villains must be from live-action films only, and must pose some type of direct or indirect lethal threat. The villains can be either individuals or small groups that act as one unit. The villains must be human or human in appearance. Also, individuals who are the central protagonists/antiheroes of their respective films were excluded.
