The woods have always been a place where horror writers and directors find inspiration, to the point that Drew Goddard's "The Cabin In The Woods" tried to dismantle the setting and genre entirely. But that doesn't mean there aren't more original stories waiting in that milieu out there, and director Jack Heller looks to send a chill up your spine with "Dark Was The Night." Today we have the exclusive teaser trailer for the forthcoming horror movie, and it sets the mood nicely. Starring Kevin Durand, Bianca Kajlich, Lukas Haas and Nick Damici, the film centers on a small town Sheriff who has to protect those around him when a logging company sets up shop and unleashes a dark evil in the woods nearby. Below, you can get a taste of what happens next. "Dark Was The Night" will premiere at La Screamfest in October. »

Ridley Scott is moving at a fast clip these days. While we’re still waiting to see if the director can deliver on the promise of the eye-popping spectacle we glimpsed in the trailer for his upcoming Biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings," it would appear that the 76-year old filmmaker has more than a few exciting projects coming down the pipeline. The one we know the most about right now is “The Martian,” an adaptation of Andy Weir’s science-fiction novel about an astronaut stranded on —you guessed it— Mars. The film is set to star Matt Damon with a screenplay by “The Cabin in the Woods” scribe Drew Goddard, and has been blessed with a very awards-friendly release date of November 25th, 2015. Then there’s a proposed sequel to his beloved Philip K. Dick adaptation “Blade Runner,” which he recently met with Harrison Ford about (sidenote: the director »

Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring, Insidious) is set to star opposite Kurt Russell in Caliber Media's Bone Tomahawk. Matthew Fox (Alex Cross, World War Z) is also joining the cast that includes Richard Jenkins (The Cabin in the Woods).
In the film, four men attempt to rescue a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes that live beyond the edge of civilization.

Variety reports that talks are still in very early stages, and his involvement will depend on whether he can fit the project into his busy schedule. No details were given for the character he may portray, if a deal is finalized. We reported last week that Kate Mara (The Fantastic Four) was also offered a role, but it isn't known if the actress has accepted the offer or not.
Matt Damon stars as an astronaut who becomes stranded on Mars, and tries to find a way to survive while figuring out how to make it back home. The story is adapted from Andy Weir's book, which he self-published as an e-book in 2012 before Crown purchased the rights and re-published the novel earlier this year.
Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon
The Cabin in the Woods was the final frontier for slasher films… or at least it should have been. Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon’s 2011 horror-comedy took all of the subgenre’s tropes and turned them on their head. It acknowledged every character stereotype and rejected each one. The slasher film received a complete deconstruction, and now it may be best to simply pack it away. Sadly, The Town That Dreaded Sundown heralds an uninspired return to form. It just may be the blandest movie to feature violent homicide and ruthless killers.
A remake of the 1976 cult film, The Town That Dreaded Sundown heavily incorporates its predecessor into its story. Set in Texarkana, Texas, the movie takes place several decades after a string of serial murders were committed. Each Halloween the town »

A film not yet released after having previously premiered over a year ago isn’t necessarily a good sign of things to come. Such is the case with Horns. The adaptation of the popular horror novel by Joe Hill has sat on the shelf since first premiering at The Toronto International Film Festival in early September of 2013. This might not be the nail in the coffin for a film, especially since so many great films have sat for years collecting dust – just read about the behind the scenes story of The Cabin In The Woods. Still, the little voice in my head told me to proceed cautiously for fear of getting burned.
Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) is going through hell. He is dealing with the personal heartbreak of losing the love of his life (Juno Temple) and attempting to defend his name from a town that seems dead-set on finding him guilty. »

Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard's The Cabin in the Woods was such an insanely fun horror movie. As a tribute to that film, artist Alex Pardee created an incredibly cool poster that any fan of the film would love. It's called "The Zoology Department," and it features a ton of the various monsters and creatures that reside under the cabin in the woods. I love this illustration, and here is the information on how you can get one:
"12” x 36” prints. “Warm Blood” red colorway is an edition of 40 and exclusively available only from booth B-14, at Mondo-Con, opening September 20th-21st, 2014, in Austin, TX.
"The “Cold Corpse” blue edition colorway is a S/N timed release print. Only available online from 12noon Pst Friday, September 19th, until midnight on Sunday, September 21st, Here."

In another move that shows how much inspiration the upcoming Daredevil Netflix series will draw from Frank Miller’s run in the comics, Marvel has cast Scott Glenn (The Hunt for Red October, Silence of the Lambs) as Stick, the mysterious martial artist famous for training both Elektra and the titular Man Without Fear.
Stick was created by Miller in 1981, where he’s depicted as a blind master martial artist who not only teaches a young Matt Murdock how to fight, but how to control his senses and develop his “radar sense.” Stick is also revealed to be the leader of a warrior order called The Chaste that regularly fought with a mercenary group known as The Hand.

Best known for his work in blockbuster films such as The Bourne Ultimatum, Silence of the Lambs and The Hunt for Red October, Scott Glenn will play Stick, the mysterious martial artist and mentor of Matt Murdock (a.k.a. Daredevil).
Scott Glenn joins Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), with Rosario Dawson and Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk) in the critically-lauded cast of Marvel's Daredevil.
Here's what Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television, had to say about the casting in his statement.
"Stick is one of the most important figures in Matt Murdock's life and Scott Glenn embodies all the qualities of someone so integral to this hero's journey. There are few actors who could bring such the authenticity, »
Marvel Studios is planning on revealing lots of new details about their upcoming Daredevil series at New York Comic Con next month, but showrunner Stephen S. DeKnight already shared a few things about it with Paste Magazine. In a recentinterview he offers a little tease of their vision for the man without fear.
"With this version of Daredevil we wanted it to be grounded, gritty, as realistic as we could portray. That naturally fits in with the Daredevil character. Matt Murdock, on a regular basis, would get the shit beat out of him. That's one thing that makes him a great character. He's not super strong. He's not invulnerable. In every aspect, he's a man that's just pushed himself to the limits, he just has senses that are better than a normal humans. He is human. The other thing that really drew me to this character is that he's one »

One of my favorite movies so far this year has been The One I Love. I was going to preface the film's title with a summary of its genre -- for example, "the delightful romantic comedy" or "the taut suspense thriller" but as you know if you've heard anything about the movie, the less said the better. It defies genre, and is just as twisty as last year's smart horror-comedy The Cabin in the Woods. Check out Marcie's vague but heartfelt review for -- well, not details exactly, but at least a recommendation.
Director Charlie McDowell and actor/producer Mark Duplass were in Austin last month to promote the movie, which opened in Austin at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar last Friday and will continue through next Wednesday, at least. You can also catch it on various online VOD outlets. As you probably know, Mark and his brother Jay Duplass used to live in Austin, »

Gallery 1988 (West) is currently hosting a new show dedicated to the oeuvre of Joss Whedon (sans the Marvel stuff, I noticed). What attendees get is a mix of everything from Buffy the Vampire Slayer - both the feature film and television incarnations - to Firefly to The Cabin in the Woods. Usually, at shows like this, I expect artists to gravity to one property more than the other. In this case, however, everything Whedon had his fingerprints on was evenly represented...and the artists were clearly excited to take a crack at The Cabin in the Woods. I snapped some pics at (most) of the art representing the film - check 'em out in the gallery below.

Sir Ridley Scott’s next project is The Martian, a movie which is based on an e-book by Andy Weir about an astronaut stranded on Mars who must figure out how to stay alive long enough to get back home.
Matt Damon is already attached to star, and now Jessica Chastain is said to be in early talks for the lead female role, as is Kristen Wiig. There are no details on who either of them will be playing as of yet.
Chastain has starred in a number of movies including Lawless and Zero Dark Thirty. She will next be seen in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. Wiig meanwhile is known for comedic roles in the likes of Bridesmaids and Knocked Up, but was equally impressive in Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

The History Channel has released a full trailer for their new four-hour Houdini miniseries. The show will follow the life of the legendary magician from his beginnings in desperate poverty to the worldwide fame that he gained. The series stars Adrien Brody, and it looks like it's going to be pretty damn good.
Before David Blaine and David Copperfield, there was one man whose name was synonymous with being the master of illusion and escape - Harry Houdini. Houdini follows the man behind the magic as he finds fame, engages in espionage, battles spiritualists and encounters the greatest names of the era, from U.S. presidents to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Grigori Rasputin. The drama will chronicle the life of a man who can defy death through his stunts, his visions and his mastery of illusion.
