Ten Best: Beasts On Film

27 August 2015 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Beasts have always provided fantastic source material for horror filmmakers across the ages, whether from the mythical world or the natural. To celebrate the release of Into the Grizzly Maze last week we take a look back at some the biggest, baddest beasts on film…

Into the Grizzly Maze (2015)

Starring James Marsden, Thomas Jane and Billy Bob Thornton, Into the Grizzly Maze tells the story of a sheriff (Jane), thrown into turmoil when a massive rogue grizzly wreaks havoc in a local Alaskan community. Enlisting the help of his estranged brother (Marsden) he enters the labyrinthine Grizzly Maze to track down his missing wife, before the bear does. As the body count mounts, things are only further complicated when an infamous bear hunter (Thornton) enters the fray, determined to take down the bear he’s been waiting for his whole life…

10 Biggest New Cliches Of Modern Horror Movies

15 August 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Alliance Films

Characters always split up when they shouldn’t. The car never starts. Teenagers run upstairs when being chased by the killer. If you have sex, you’ll get killed. These are the rules of horror movies that everyone is familiar with, and they’re exactly why the genre has gained a reputation for being lazy and repetitive.

Yet in actuality, nearly all of these famous cliches have been completely abandoned over the past few years. It’s incredibly rare for protagonists to have sex in the middle of the woods these days, and nobody ever splits up anymore. Why? Well, you can thank so-called post-horror movies like Scream, The Cabin In The Woods, and Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, all of which hilariously mocked these tropes and helped make them so well known.

After all the cliches were turned into a joke, how could any self-respecting filmmaker still include them in their movie? »

10 August 2015 12:16 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production is currently under way on Season 2 of Netflix's Marvel's Daredevil, with shooting taking place in New York City. Over the weekend, Just Jared released photos from the set that showcases Jon Bernthal as Punisher, engaging with an unknown actor in a brutal street fight. These photos come just a few weeks after the first set photos arrived featuring the new character.

Netflix has already teased that they may also develop a movie featuring Jon Bernthal's Punisher, but it isn't known if there are any formal plans in the works quite yet. Frank Castle will clash with Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock, throughout Marvel's Daredevil Season 2. The character is described as "a vigilante who aims to clean up New York City's Hell's Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter how lethal the results."

Lady Sif will play a “pivotal” role in Thor: Ragnarok

21 July 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif has played an important supporting role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in 2011’s Thor, 2013’s Thor: The Dark World and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but it appears that her character may have an even bigger role in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Alexander stated, “Marvel, I think on purpose, they don’t tell me certain things. Because they know I’ll be like, ‘So here’s what’s gonna happen.’ But I do know I will be in Thor 3 and that Sif will have a very pivotal part in that movie. I just can’t tell you what because I’ll get shot.”

She went on to say that easters eggs for certain elements of Thor: Ragnarok will be put in Captain America: Civil War, just as little hints of the film have been placed in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. »

The Ash vs Evil Dead Trailer is Groovy, Baby

11 July 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

35 years ago, a young aspiring filmmaker named Sam Raimi and his ragtag team of friends, including the Joel half of the Coen Brothers, used their limited resources to craft one of the greatest horror films of all time: The Evil Dead, a frenzied, frantic, fiercely original vision of pretty young people chopping each other up in a cabin in the woods, starring a then-unknown Bruce Campbell. Raimi and co. flaunted their Diy aesthetic, splashing gallons of blood and viscera all over everyone and everything. The film was, in Raimi’s own words, a “comedy of errors." It also ushered in a new era of indie horror filmmaking, and engendered a new horror trope (later skewered, with deft precision, by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, in The Cabin in the Woods). Now Raimi and Campbell have revived The Evil Dead as a television series for Starz called Ash vs Evil Dead »

Elodie Yung Is Elektra in 'Daredevil' Season 2

7 July 2015 4:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe Retaliation, District 13 Ultimatum) joins Season 2 of Marvel's Daredevil, streaming only on Netflix in 2016! Yung will play Elektra, a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock's past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle. The first season of Marvel's Daredevil made reference to Elektra, but now Yung will portray one of Daredevil's fan-favorite characters.

Elektra marks the most recent major addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as she will join Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle in the upcoming season of the Netflix Original Series Marvel's Daredevil. Here's what Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television, had to say about the casting.

"After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra's impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity. Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved »

Feast Your Eyes On Concept Art For Steven Spielberg’s Postponed Robopocalypse

6 July 2015 5:52 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Based on Daniel H. Wilson’s 2011 novel of the same name, Robopocalypse was set to hit the big screen in 2013, with none other than Steven Spielberg at the helm. Telling the story of a dark future where humanity is locked in a bitter war with their former robotic servants after a sentient A.I goes rogue, Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, The Martian) was hired to write the script, and Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway, and Ben Whishaw joined the cast in 2012. But after rumours of budgetary concerns and the release date been put forward to 2014, the project was put on hold indefinitely on January 9th 2013, with word that the script was not ready and the production was proving to be too expensive. Even though Spielberg has said he was going back to the drawing board and starting on a more economical and personal script, that was two years ago, »

Laff Review: Viet Nguyen's Award Winning 'Crush The Skull' Is A Bone Chillingly Good Time Full Of Laughs and Thrills

18 June 2015 11:23 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Winner of the inaugural “Nightfall Award” at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival  —an accolade bestowed upon the festival’s best horror or "midnight" film— Viet Nguyen’s feature directorial debut “Crush The Skull,” is a hilarious, thrilling hybrid of a heist film and a gory, old-school slasher flick. The screenplay, written by Nguyen and one of the film’s stars Christopher Dinh, skillfully balances comedic moments with frightening, unexpected twists and turns. Nguyen’s direction also adeptly brings many of  funny and fear-inducing scenes to life, an effect no doubt bolstered by the excellent performances of a stellar cast that includes Dinh, Tim Chiou, Katie Savoy, Chris Riedell, Lauren Reeder, Walter Michael Bost, Leonard Wu, Jerry Ying and Lincoln Hoppe, in a film reminiscent of other comedy-horror hybrids such as Eli Craig’s “Tucker & Dale vs. Evil” or Drew Goddard’s “The Cabin in The Woods.” Read More: L.A. »

Watch Matt Damon Fight to Survive in 'The Martian' Trailer

9 June 2015 6:51 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Matt Damon strikes a delicate balance between intensity and levity in the new trailer for Ridley Scott's The Martian, in which the actor plays Mark Watney, an astronaut trying to survive after being accidentally stranded on Mars.

As the clip shows, Watney and his Ares 3 crew are hit by a sudden, severe storm and ordered to evacuate their mission on the red planet; Watney, however, gets caught in the chaos and is left behind and presumed dead. When he wakes up alone, he returns to the Ares 3 base and »

Matt Damon Goes Interstellar Again In New Pics From Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

25 May 2015 5:50 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Any survival story is fascinating. I think of it as a 21st century Robinson Crusoe,” Ridley Scott tells Empire about his upcoming "The Martian." But frankly, putting this cast in any kind of movie would have our attention. Matt DamonJeff Daniels, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel EjioforKate Mara, Michael PeñaMackenzie DavisSean BeanDonald Glover and Naomi Scott make up the ensemble of this one, and following the first look over the weekend, another batch has arrived. The latest go at sci-fi from Scott is based on the book by Andy Weir, with a script penned by Drew Goddard (“Daredevil,” “The Cabin In The Woods”). The story follows an astronaut who is left stranded on a Martian colony and struggles to survive, while back on Earth, Nasa tries to mount a rescue mission. It seems Damon has trouble being left alone on distant planets in sci-fi movies these days. »

New The Martian Pictures Further Reveal Ridley Scott’s Sci-Fi Thriller

24 May 2015 7:38 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Last night, the first image from 20th Century Fox’s The Martian landed online, giving us our first look at Matt Damon in director Ridley Scott’s upcoming thriller. Now, an official version of that photo plus a few other images from the film have been released online. Based on Andy Weir’s self-published 2012 novel of the same name, the movie revolves around an astronaut who finds himself stranded on Mars after he is injured and presumed dead by his team. With limited resources and a finite amount of time before his oxygen runs out, Mark Watney (Damon) must use the power of science to keep himself alive on the red planet. Speaking with Empire, Scott says he thinks of The Martian as “a 21st century Robinson Crusoe." Indeed, comparisons to Crusoe and the more recent Cast Away are inevitable, but Scott has filled out the film with a stellar »

First Look: Matt Damon As An Astronaut In Ridley Scott’s ‘The Martian’

23 May 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It might seem odd for Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain to star in almost back-to-back sci-fi films that are kind of similar —  Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” and Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” — but evidently the resemblances weren’t enough to scare off either actor, or the prospects of working with these directors and their great casts were too good to pass up. Written by Drew Goddard (“Daredevil,” “The Cabin In The Woods”) as a project he was originally going to direct, “The Martian” centers on an astronaut (Damon) who has just become one of the first people to walk on Mars. But after a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking he's dead, he finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive. Even if he can get word out, his supplies will be gone long before a rescue could arrive, »

Asa Butterfield Cast as the New Spider-Man

14 May 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The folks at are reporting Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game) has been cast as the new Spider-Man for Sony Pictures and will have his first appearance as the webslinger in next year's Captain America: Civil War followed by a new Spider-Man feature in July 2017. Butterfield was reported as the front-runner back at the end of April and other than a brief report saying Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," The Impossible) was still in the mix that never changed. Word is the new Spider-Man will keep Peter Parker a lot younger, a lot longer, focusing on his high school years and word is they plan to go with a tone matching that of a John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off). Other names that were once on the short list of contenders for the Spidey role included Nat Wolff (Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars), Timothee Chalamet »

Spider-man Director: Marvel and Sony Considering Warm Bodies, Pitch Perfect Helmers

5 May 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

So, who’s going to follow Sam Raimi and Marc Webb as the director of the next Spider-Man film? With production underway on Captain America: Civil War and Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures deep in the hunt for the actor who will portray Spider-Man (first popping up in Civil War before leading his own film), the contest to direct the new Spider-Man movie is also heating up. A previous report from March claimed that Drew Goddard, the filmmaker behind The Cabin in the Woods and Sony’s aborted Sinister Six, was in talks to write and direct the new Spidey pic. Goddard was a solid and sensible choice, having had experience with Sony on Sinister Six and with Marvel creating Daredevil. But a new report leaves Goddard’s name out of the picture entirely and instead reveals a familiar-feeling list of directors who are being considered to helm the new Spider-Man film instead. »

The Daredevil season 1 showrunner has been chatting about inheriting the show from Drew Goddard, Easter Eggs and more...

Outgoing Daredevil showrunner, Steven S. DeKnight, whose duties on the Marvel Netflix collaboration will be taken over for season two by Doug Petrie (BuffyAmerican Horror Story) and Marco Ramirez (Sons Of Anarchy, Da Vinci's Demons), has chatted to Collider about his work on season one.

In the video interview, the former Spartacus showrunner discusses taking over the project from Drew Goddard (CloverfieldThe Cabin In The Woods), whom he could not praise enough: "Drew and I go way back [the pair co-wrote scripts on Angel, and worked together on Buffy The Vampire Slayer], I can't say enough good things about him. This show is as much his as it is mine. He had a fantastic idea and I was thrilled that I was able to come in and execute it."

“The Ladies of the House” and “It Follows” have indie horror in a great place in 2015

30 April 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of It Follows, the independent horror success story from earlier on in the year. At the same time though, I’m always on the lookout for other small films of that nature that I can champion, much like many others in the industry. Usually, I’m on board with the fright flick du jour of the moment, be it The Cabin in the Woods or You’re Next, only rarely breaking with the crowd, like in the case of last year’s The Babadook. Every so often though, I get the chance to talk about something small that might not get seen otherwise. This week, there’s a perfect example of that in John Stuart Wildman’s The Ladies of the House. Very few people know about it, but it’s the next really strong horror outing of 2015. As a quick plot summation, »

Is The Spider-Man Reboot Titled Spider-Man: The New Avenger?

27 April 2015 6:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though he’s no longer affiliated with Latino Review, scoopster extraordinaire El Mayimbe (aka Umberto Gonzales) is still working hard to break comic-book news for impatient superhero aficionados the world over. And yesterday, he emerged with a rather interesting rumor about Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man reboot, which will bring the wall-crawler into the Marvel Cinematic Universe under the watchful eye of Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige. According to El Mayimbe, the title of the pic is not Spectacular Spider-Man, as previously rumored, but Spider-Man: The New Avenger.

Now, clunky as it is, that subtitle would allow Feige to bring Spidey closer to the McU and distance him from Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man films. It would also confirm what many already suspect – that Spider-Man will become a member of the second Avengers lineup, which will be formed following the cataclysmic events of Captain America: Civil War.

Spider-Man reboot rumoured to be titled Spider-Man: The New Avenger

27 April 2015 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in March it was reported by Latino-Review that Marvel and Sony’s new Spider-Man reboot would be going by the title of The Spectacular Spider-Man, but now we have another possible title, with former Lr writer El Mayimbe claiming on Instagram that the working title for the film is Spider-Man: The New Avenger.

Of course, the film can’t be using both titles, and Latino-Review and El Mayimbe have been throwing out countless wild guesses, speculation and downright laughable “scoops” these past few months (Aunt May movie, anyone?), so don’t be too surprised if this one fails to pan out too. Chances are, they’ll be back with a third rumoured title soon anyway.

The new Spider-Man film is set for release in July 2017, with Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) thought to be in line to direct. According to reports, Timothee Chamalet (Interstellar), Nat Wolff (Paper Towns »
