Rip Wes Craven: Celebrities Pay Tribute to 'Nightmare on Elm Street' Director

31 August 2015 2:10 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Horror king Wes Craven died Sunday, August 30 after a battle with brain cancer. He was 76.

Craven brought Freddy Krueger to life in "Nightmare on Elm Street," found a new audience with the "Scream" franchise, and also gave us "The Last House on the Left" and "The Hills Have Eyes," among others.

He helped launch or re-launch the careers of many Hollywood stars, and influenced countless others, and several celebrities paid tribute to the film legend after his passing:

Does Marvel Studios have a director problem? Why A-list filmmakers are fleeing the MCU

23 August 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Remember that time last year when the humble Cornetto ice cream cone briefly became a revolutionary symbol? (Revolutionary, that is, within the narrow spectrum of blockbuster cinema.)

On May 24, 2014, the day after Marvel Studios announced that writer-director Edgar Wright had stepped down from helming Ant-Man after years in development, Wright tweeted a rapidly-deleted image of Buster Keaton holding a Cornetto, bearing a single-word caption: "Selfie".

The message was clear - Keaton famously regretted his decision to give up independent filmmaking and work for MGM in 1928, calling it "the worst mistake of [his] career" because of his loss of creative control. The Cornetto, being a reference to Wright's blood-and-ice cream trilogy, clarified beyond the shadow of a doubt Wright's disillusionment with his studio masters.

More than a year on, Wright is still yet to speak publicly about what led him to jump ship from a project he had spent eight years developing, »

Absolutely Anything review

16 August 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Monty Python's Terry Jones comes Absolutely Anything, starring Simon Pegg. The late Robin Williams steals the show, though...

Absolutely Anything has been on comedy fans' radars for a long time. Terry Jones' first directorial effort since 1996's The Wind In The Willows is touted as a zany sci-fi comedy with shades of Douglas Adams and Monty Python's Flying Circus, with a cast that includes Jones' fellow Pythons, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle and Michael Palin, alongside other comedy stars like Simon Pegg, Eddie Izzard, Joanna Lumley and Robin Williams.

Alas, the material doesn't live up to the star calibre, nor the literally limitless potential suggested by the title. Loosely based on H.G. Wells' fantastical comedy short story The Man Who Could Work Miracles, the film begins when a group of power-crazed aliens (voiced by the Pythons) discover a probe with information on Earth's culture and decide »

'Star Wars 7' Got More Than a Cameo from Simon Pegg

14 August 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many were disappointed when it was confirmed that director J.J. Abrams wasn't showing any footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens at Comic-Con last month. Those same fans were likely delighted, though, by the behind-the-scenes video that debuted during the panel, which confirmed, among other things, that Simon Pegg does have an on-screen role. During a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, J.J. Abrams wouldn't say exactly what the actor's role is, but he did confirm that Simon Pegg was part of his behind-the-scenes team that helped him hash out the story.

"I will say this in terms of Simon: while he won't be recognizable in the movie, in all honesty, his role in this - not the performance or the character - but his support and friendship has been massively important and helpful in the process. He was a wonderful partner in crime to kick the story around and »

Edgar Wright's Collider lands new writer

11 August 2015 10:16 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Once he's done with Baby Driver, Edgar Wright may well direct sci-fi movie Collider, which now has a new writer on board...

The next project on Edgar Wright's slate to direct is Baby Driver, that Sony announced last week was set for release in 2017. But after that, he may well be moving onto Collider.

A film that's been set up at Bad Robot, with Jj Abrams producting, word first surfaced on Collider back in the summer of 2012. Back then, Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend) was reported to be co-writing the screenplay with Wright. Few details were available on the movie, short of the fact that it's a science fiction project.

Fast forward to now, and still there are few details known, but it does still appear to be live and kicking. Mark L Smith has been hired by Paramount to take a pass at the film's screenplay, having recently co-penned The Revenant. »

'Star Wars: Rogue One' Casts 'Sherlock' Star Jonathan Aris

27 July 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production set to begin very soon on Disney and LucasFilm's Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, the BBC reports that Sherlock actor Jonathan Aris has joined the cast. The actor's Spotlight profile, a website where actors and filmmakers can post their resumes, revealed that he is playing "Senator Jebel" in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. That listing was later removed from his page, so it's unclear if this is the confirmed character or not.

If, in fact, the actor has signed on for the Star Wars anthology movie, he will join a cast that includes Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed, Sam Claflin, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn and Forest Whitaker. The story centers on a group of Rebel Alliance soldiers who embark on a mission to steal plans for the original Death Star. The plot is set between the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and »

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership.

Life Moves Pretty Fast by Hadley Freeman review

3 June 2015 5:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The lessons we learned from 80s movies are dissected by Hadley Freeman in her new book. Here's our review...

One of my favourite movie websites is The Shiznit. If you've never had the pleasure, do check it out. What I like about it is it's a site that has a habit of asking the question I wanted to ask, but in about half the word count. Were he around today, I'm quietly confident that George Orwell would follow The Shiznit on Twitter.

The reason I bring the site up here - and thus prove my point about my own wordiness - is a question they asked Edgar Wright when on the junket trail for The World's End. For they cut straight to the nub of it: what's the film about, and then, what's it really about?

On the surface, Hadley Freeman's new book, Life Moves Pretty Fast, is her love »

Simon Pegg interview: Man Up, Tintin 2, rom coms, directing

27 May 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Pegg chats to us about rom coms, Man Up, writing, Tintin 2, visiting Andy Serkis on The Jungle Book set, directing, and more...

Before he heads off to make the next Star Trek film, Simon Pegg is back in UK cinemas this weekend for the really rather good romantic comedy, Man Up. He co-stars with Lake Bell in the movie, and ahead of its release, he spared us some time to chat about the film, and what he's up to next...

It's an interesting sign of the times that BBC Films, which started out making movies that couldn't be made really, back with Truly Madly Deeply....

Another South Bank movie!

True. Back then, BBC Films was making niche films that were struggling to get made anywhere else. And here, with Man Up, a rom com seems to have become one of those niche films.

Absolutely, yeah. You make a very good point. »

New Photo from AMC’s Preacher Pilot Revealed by Seth Rogen

15 May 2015 7:04 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) and Arseface (Ian Colletti) are silhouetted in a new photo from the set of AMC's Preacher pilot, which is currently being directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Rogen recently Tweeted the image, which shows Jesse having what looks to be an intense conversation with fan favorite Arseface, aka Eugene Root, a young man who, in the comic books, was spurred on to attempt suicide after Kurt Cobain's death, only to survive a gunshot to the face.

Joining Rogen and Goldberg behind the camera is Bill Pope, who's worked as the director of photography on The Matrix films, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies, Edgar Wright's The World's End, and much more. Rogen and Goldberg are directing from a screenplay they wrote with Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad).

Along with Cooper and Colletti, Preacher stars Joseph Gilgun as Irish vampire Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Tulip, W. Earl Brown as Sheriff Root, »

Exclusive: Edgar Wright Interviews 'Ex Machina" Director Alex Garland

8 May 2015 4:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For film enthusiasts, there are few people working in the medium today more interesting than either Edgar Wright or Alex Garland.  So when the auteur of the Cornetto Trilogy told us he wanted a place to interview his friend, the director of the just-released "Ex Machina", we were thrilled to give him a home. You can hear the pair's conversation in the video above.  It's a fascinating, free-flowing discussion of filmmaking, the craft of the screenplay, technology, the themes in Garland's film as well as the surprising pick of the writer/director who has had an outsized influence on them both.  A stunning amount of the great film work of the past decade has emerged from the minds of the two participants in this conversation – "Shaun of the Dead," "Hot Fuzz," "The World's End" and "Scott Pilgrim vs the World" are among Wright's credits. In his writer's garb, prior to »

Rosamund Pike Stars in 'Return to Sender' Thriller First Full Trailer

6 May 2015 3:27 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You expect me to cry, scream, say 'dear God, why me?!' ...That's not me." The first trailer for Return to Sender has debuted, and we probably wouldn't be interested if it didn't star Rosamund Pike (of Gone Girl, The World's End, Jack Reacher). The plot is simple: A nurse living in small town goes on a blind date with a man who is not the person he says he is. Pike plays that "meticulous small-town nurse" and it looks like she's got some fun tricks up her sleeve, too. The cast includes Rumer Willis, Nick Nolte and Shiloh Fernandez. This doesn't look particularly impressive, but at least maybe the performances will be good. Here's the first official trailer for Fouad Mikati's Return to Sender, found on YouTube: From the original casting story on THR, the script is about "a meticulous small-town nurse (Pike) who falls victim to a »

Also featured in our latest round-up are details on Martin Freeman being cast in Captain America: Civil War and the home media release details for The Poltergeist of Borley Forest.

Captain America: Civil War: Marvel announced today that Martin Freeman (The Hobbit trilogy, Sherlock, The World's End) has joined the cast of Captain America: Civil War in a currently unknown role.

Marvel announced today that Sherlock and The Hobbit star Martin Freeman has joined the bursting-at-the-seams cast of Captain America: Civil War.

Watch: Simon Pegg Mistakes Lake Bell for His Blind Date in 'Man Up' Trailer

Read More: Watch: Some New Featurettes From 'The World's End,' the New Comedy from Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost "Man Up," the new romantic comedy starring Simon Pegg and Lake Bell, is about what can happen when someone mistakes you for their blind date - and you just go along with it. The film is directed by Ben Palmer, who made "The Inbetweeners Movie." American actress Bell (with an unusually convincing British accent) plays Nancy, a cynic who doesn't believe in dating or being "set up." But when Jack (Pegg) incorrectly identifies her as his blind date in Waterloo station, Nancy decides to pretend to be someone she isn't.  Naturally, hilarity ensues. Jack thinks Nancy is a tri-athlete (she's definitely not), and as she stuffs her face with food, she gropes at straws to explain, "I just gotta regularly carb up." Nancy goes outside of her »

Nick Frost on 'Unfinished Business' and What's Next for the Cornetto Crew (Exclusive)

6 March 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Even diehard fans of Nick Frost will probably be taken aback by his performance in "Unfinished Business."

The British actor, best known for his trilogy of films with co-star Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright ("Shaun of the Dead," "Hot Fuzz," and "The World's End"), has appeared as a comic-strip character in "The Adventures of Tin Tin," one of the seven dwarves in "Snow White and the Huntsman," and as a strung-out doper in cult sci-fi comedy "Attack the Block." But, in "Unfinished Business," the new comedy starring Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson, and Dave Franco, Frost plays a buttoned-up businessman who has a rather outrageous personal life.

This means that, for most of the movie, he's outfitted in a snug leather ensemble and, at one point... well, I'm not going to spoil it for you. But, like I said, even for fans of the comedian, this is a whole new side of Nick Frost. »
