New Scream Queens Featurette: Go Behind the Scenes with Ryan Murphy and the Cast

4 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I'm going to watch Scream Queens no matter what, but that first full-length trailer for Ryan Murphy's latest was a bit underwhelming. As Murphy explains in this brand new behind-the-scenes featurette, it's supposed to be a cross between Heathers and Friday the 13th. That mix sounds like it could be a blast, but based on the footage revealed thus far, I'm not quite sure if the show will nail the horror and humor, let alone deliver an appropriate blend of the two. Hear all about the upcoming series from Murphy and his cast in the new Scream Queens featurette below. The show also stars Lea Michele, Keke PalmerNasim Pedrad, Jamie Lee Curtis, Nick Jonas,Oliver Hudson, Ariana GrandeSkyler SamuelsBillie LourdDiego Boneta and Abigail Breslin, and will kick off its 15-episode run in the fall on Fox. Here’s the official synopsis for Scream Queens: »

11 things you may not know about Tomorrowland star Britt Robertson

10 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Although she may not be the most well-known name in Tomorrowland, here at Digital Spy we think Britt Robertson is a star in the making.

With Disney's Tomorrowland opening in cinemas across the country today (May 22), here are 11 facts about the actress which you perhaps didn't know.

1. Britt comes from a Big family.

Brittany Leanna Robertson is the oldest of seven children - talk about sibling rivalries! With three half-siblings on her mum's side and three on her dad's side, growing up in the Robertson family sounds like it could have been quite hectic. No wonder Britt moved out at 14, to search for her fame in Hollywood.

2. She acts way younger than her age.

Pardon the cliché, but in Tomorrowland, Britt literally does act younger than her age, playing a 15-year-old character despite actually being 25.

Speaking about the drastic age difference, she said: "If I can play 15 when I am »

Tomorrowland (aka Tomorrowland: A World Beyond) movie review: back to the future

21 May 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It gets a tad heavy-handed, but my eyes welled with tears of geeky joy at the film’s embrace of an optimism it steadfastly refuses to see as old-fashioned. I’m “biast” (pro): love George Clooney; big Sf geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

We geeks have been getting teased and taunted by the prospect of Disney and director Brad Bird’s (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Ratatouille) Tomorrowland for so long now, without getting anything more than vague hint of what the movie is actually about, that it seems inevitable that the actual film must be a disappointment. So is it?

Not at all. In fact, it’s a glorious reminder — in this era of reboots and remakes and sequels and based-on-something-else movies — of the joy of discovery that we get far less frequently at the movies these days. »

Scream Queens Trailer Piles On The Self-Parody

20 May 2015 6:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox is betting big on Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk this fall with the American Horror Story creators’ campy horror-comedy Scream Queens, and now that the first full trailer for the anthology series has been released, it’s easy to see why – seemingly every teen idol this side of Disney pops up in the preview.

Emma Roberts (Unfabulous), The Nine Lives of Chloe King‘s Skyler SamuelsGlee‘s Lea Michele and Keke Palmer (True Jackson, VP) are seemingly taking on the biggest roles in a cast that also boasts Abigail Breslin, Nasim Pedrad, Oliver Hudson, Billie Lourd, Diego Boneta, Glen Powell, Lucien Laviscount, Niecy Nash, Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande. Oh – and original Scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis is on hand to provide the series’ real horror credentials (unless you want to count Breslin’s Zombieland and Haunter, which is entirely valid).

Unfortunately, the uneven tone displayed by this »

Meta First Trailer For ‘Scream: The TV Series’

13 April 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In-keeping with Wes Craven’s Scream methodology, the TV Series is taking that 1996 tongue-in-cheek genius and running with it or, to be fair, reintroducing it to a whole new audience.

Scream (TV Series) will premiere in June on MTV and although I actually adore the original and the most recent, it was always a hard franchise to keep going without getting too away of reality. The first trailer here has a few issues for me and not only because it looks like Stab, the spoofed film within a film in Scream 2 and onwards, but it appears to be the same film but with a little rehashed, updated relevance – which was done in Scream 4. There’s also a strong indication that Ghostface isn’t the same either, which might defeat the point of connection between the literal nature of the title and exactly what it looks like but…yeah… »

The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki Boards Horror Sequel Rings

1 April 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Switching out geek-centric chatter for far more terrifying subject matter, The Big Bang Theory‘s Johnny Galecki is the latest in a line of recent additions to board Paramount’s horror sequel Rings.

Originally, the film was mistakenly described as a prequel; a matter which director F. Javier Gutierrez soon cleared up. With that matter taken care of, it’s since been explained that the third entry in the studio’s J-horror remake trilogy is actually set after The Ring Two.

In Gutierrez’s long-gestating sequel, penned by David Loucka, Jacob Aaron Estes, and Akiva Goldsman, the story picks up 13 years after the events of the last outing. This time, a new roster of people unable to grasp the simple concept of the cursed videotape are bound for grisly, watery deaths. Italian actress Matilda Lutz stars as Julia, a teen who comes across a copy of Samara’s cassette, and »

How horror franchises redefine themselves over time

28 February 2015 7:44 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What sets one horror franchise apart from another, and how do they evolve over time? As Rec 4 lands on disc, we take a look...

The first instalment in any long running horror franchise is, generally, the one people reckon is the best. And in a lot of cases, they might be right. But as franchises get longer and start clocking up four or more movies in the same universe, things tend to change.

It might be that producers have taken note of popular actors or elements in previous films and want to expand on them; it might be that years have passed and tastes have changed; or it might be that new directors want to put their stamp on a story, but either way, the fifth or sixth movie in a series is usually pretty different from the first one. And the thing that a franchise becomes known for might »

Scream: ranking the movies in order of quality

16 February 2015 1:56 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Which is the scariest Scream of them all? We’ve put the satirical, postmodern slasher series in order…

This feature contains spoilers for all of the Scream movies.

Do you like scary movies? Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson decided most people probably did. In the mid 90s, they breathed life into a flagging genre by creating a new knife-wielding icon who, crucially, was aware of all the horror movie villains who’d gone before.

In fact, ‘Ghostface’ was so into his horror trivia that he quizzed his victims about it before striking. Could watching enough horror movies save you when your own life threatened to turn into one? According to Scream, maybe it could.

Although the first movie ends with – spoiler! – the death of both the killers behind the mask, the Ghostface persona proved harder to kill. In the tradition of so many other slasher villains, Ghostface came back for more. »

Flashback: ‘Scream 3’ Turns 15! On Set With the Cast in 1999

4 February 2015 4:53 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Scream franchise was an instant cult classic, credited with reviving the modern horror slasher genre in film. The movies were a clever satire, completely aware of horror-film clichés and inserting them into the plot. Spoof or not, the original Scream film remains the highest-grossing slasher film in the U.S.

It's been 15 years since our favorite horror trilogy came to an end -- or so we thought. Et was invited on set of Scream 3, as Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette were preparing to say goodbye to the end of an era.

Watch: Hollywood's Top 5 Scream Queens

"This is the last time I'm playing Sidney," Campbell told Et in 1999. "It's sad because it's a fantastic group of people, and it really is like a family, and I've loved the experience, and the films have been great for me."

The cast was careful not to give away any plot spoilers -- such as the crazy »

The wise-cracking ass-kicking small town ninjas of Ninjas vs Vampires are back with the action-packed horror film Ninjas vs Monsters; and this time the ninjas take on an army of traditional horror movie fiends in order to save mankind…

What follows is non-stop combat with plenty of laughs and gore along the way in director Justin Timpane’s latest horror adventure, which is Executive Produced by Eduardo Sanchez (director of The Blair Witch Project, Lovely Molly and Exists).
