With the sixth series of 'True Blood' merely weeks away now from our screens a fresh teaser one-sheet has been revealed by HBO hinting strongly at a possible major vampiric death in the new season. The show returns on the network from 16 June with plenty of blood and sex to keep even the most hardened sceptic interested. Luke Grimes ('Taken 2'), Amelia Rose Blaire ('90210'), Jurnee Smollett ('Friday Night Light'), Karolina Wydra ('House'), Arliss Howard, Rutger Hauer ('Hobo with a Shotgun') and Anna Camp ('The Good Wife') are all on board the new season joining alongside returning players Anna Paquin ('Scream 4'), Stephen Moyer, Ryan Kwanten and Alexander Skarsgard ('Battleship, 'Straw Dogs'). Check out the new poster below. »
The director, who oversaw all four Scream films, confirmed that he has been approached about adapting the movie series for TV, following news last week that MTV had ordered a pilot for a potential new show.
In a series of tweets, the 73-year-old said: "A lot of you have asked about the Scream TV series.
"It's true I've been approached. My response was, it would depend on the script.
"If they have a great script/concept, it could be fun. If not, not."
Craven said last year that a fifth movie in the series was not in the works.

Today's featured clip is not only dripping with slime, blood and various other unidentified gloopy substances, but it's also a rather heartbreaking little film, thanks to the melancholy strains of Brooklyn art-rock unit Yeasayer and a touching (and pretty brave) performance by Kristen Bell (Scream 4). Directed by Andreas Nilsson, “Madder Red” is the story of a woman and her pet monster, a baby-sized mutant which is basically a fleshy mass of limbs, eyes and oozing orifices... and it's dying. Bell totally sells the scenario – the unsettling creature effects help too, of course – and you'll actually feel heartbroken for her character (well, at least I did). Yeasayer - "Madder Red" (Official Video) “Madder Red” comes from Yeasayer's acclaimed 2010 album Odd Blood. The band's latest, Fragrant World, was released last fall.

It's hard to recall the last time there was this much drama around a project (Scream 4 maybe?), but World War Z is the current reigning champ of production trouble, and the truth is just about ready to be told.
An upcoming article in Vanity Fair magazine will spell it all out for us soon enough, and we're looking forward to hearing what could be the real story. Then again, it could just be more bullshit. Who knows anymore? Either way, here are some tasty tidbits from an online preview (link below) of the article.
"It was like, 'Wow. The ending of our movie doesn’t work.' I believed in that moment we needed to reshoot the movie. We were going to have long, significant discussions to fix this," so says Paramount's president of production Marc Evans upon seeing the first cut of the film.

After Scream 4 failed to score big at the box office, some moviegoers were wondering if the franchise would finally be laid to rest. However, despite its underwhelming box office take, there has been talk of a reboot, a possible second trilogy and declarations from Harvey Weinstein and Wes Craven that Scream 5 would happen.
Although we haven’t received any new word on the potential fifth entry of the franchise in nearly two years, we did report that MTV had a Scream TV adaptation in the works about a year ago. Finally, a pilot for that TV adaptation has been ordered.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, MTV has indeed greenlit the project for a pilot and is currently in talks with Wes Craven to direct the scripted hour-long ...

Dimension Films was hoping to launch a new "Scream" trilogy with "Scream 4," but the film grossed only $97 million worldwide, which is far less than any of the past three installments. It soon became clear that "Scream 5" was never going to happen, but now comes word that the studio has teamed with MTV for a "Scream" TV series. The two companies are in talks with writers to begin work on the one-hour pilot episode. Dimension Films is planning to bring back Wes Craven, who directed all four installments, to helm the pilot. If MTV ends up picking up the series, it will premiere during the summer of next year. »
MTV announced today that they will be developing a pilot for a TV series based on the Scream movie franchise. I think this could be a decent series, but I don't think MTV is the right place for it. I haven't exactly seen anything good or worth watching come from MTV, so I'm not getting my hopes up.
I really enjoyed Scream 4, and I thought for sure we would see a fifth movie get made. I'd much rather see a new movie than a mediocre TV series.
As of right now, the network has no specific concept for the show, they don't have a writer, but they are trying to get the franchise director Wes Craven on board to direct the pilot. Even though they really don't know what they are doing with the series, they have high hopes for the project, and they plan on airing it in »

MTV orders a one-hour pilot for a new series based on the Scream series of movies...
After the relative disappointment, both commercially and critically, of Scream 4, it seemed that the future of the horror franchise lay in a reboot. However, it now looks as if that's not the case.
MTV has announced that it's ordered a one hour pilot for a series based on the Scream movies, although at this stage, a writer isn't attached to the project. It's fair to suggest that Kevin Williamson will not be involved, although we're happy to be surprised there. Wes Craven may direct.
Apparently, the Scream show has been in the works for over a year so far. When we get more details on it, and exactly what it'll focus on, we'll let you know.

MTV has ordered a pilot for a TV adaptation of the movie franchise Scream.
The network is in the process of making an hour-long pilot for the horror show, in the hopes of airing a full series from summer 2014.
While MTV has yet to find a writer, it is believed to be in discussions with Wes Craven - the director of all four Scream films - to oversee the pilot.
The project, which was first rumoured last year, is being made in association with Dimension Films.
Craven recently revealed that there are no plans in place for a fifth Scream film.

Los Angeles — Baseball has scored a rare hit in Hollywood, while another American institution – Tom Cruise – has delivered his latest hit overseas.
The Jackie Robinson tale "42" took in $27.3 million to claim the weekend box-office championship domestically, according to studio estimates Sunday.
The film has yet to open overseas, where the sport is a harder sell. But Cruise knocked it out of the park with a $61.1 million international launch in 52 countries for his sci-fi thriller "Oblivion."
That bodes well for the domestic debut of "Oblivion" next Friday. The film stars Cruise as a workman on a devastated future Earth who lands in a battle with aliens.
If "Oblivion" packs in comparable domestic crowds, it will help maintain the action-star momentum Cruise regained with 2011's "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol." That return to box-office luster came after some fitful years that followed odd turns in his personal life, culminating with the breakup of »
This weekend, Jackie Robinson biopic 42 faces off against the fifth installment in the long-dormant Scary Movie franchise, with both titles targeting around $20 million. The winner will take first place on what should be another good overall weekend.Sports drama 42, produced by Legendary Pictures, tells the true story of baseball legend Jackie Robinson's challenging first season for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. The story is inherently compelling*Robinson was the first African-American to play on a Major League Baseball team, and remains an important figure in American civil rights history*and Warner Bros.' marketing has done a very good job highlighting the drama while also making the movie look exciting. One key component has been the use of Jay-z song "Brooklyn (We Go Hard)," which seems like it was written specifically for the movie.From an opening weekend perspective, the biggest drawback for the movie is its genre: the top »

Hayden Panettiere has always been this adorable little bundle of ... well, of adorableness, but now that she's doing this whole "Nashville" thing and music, which is pretty much the antithesis of the poppy, sell-out stuff like "Scream 4" and "Bring It On: All or Nothing," she's somehow even more likable than she's ever been, because it's like, whoa. Is she doing the whole "true to yourself" thing these days? Because what's nicer than that, besides maybe pie? Here's Hayden talking to Glamour magazine about a "second chance" career: “I don’t look at it as a second chance; I look at it as where I’m supposed to be. Even if I’m not perfect at it, even if my voice takes work, this is where my heart is. People used to ask me, ‘What kind of music do you like?’ I’d say, ‘Country.’ Then they’d go, ‘But you’re from New York. »

Shows that I like have been cancelled in the past, but I would have been really surprised if we hadn’t gotten a renewal for Syfy’s Continuum. For me the question what never if, but when?

ShockTillYouDrop.com had the chance to connect with Jamie Kennedy and Matt Orlando about their new collaboration, A Resurrection. Orlando wrote and directed the film and Kennedy produced through Jamie Kennedy Entertainment.
Matt Orlando gave us the run down on his first time in the director’s chair and the casting process. Jamie Kennedy shed some light on why A Resurrection doesn’t look like a first film and offered his critique on Scream 4. Kennedy also gave us an update on another film Jamie Kennedy Entertainment is producing, Kantemir, which stars Robert Englund.
A Resurrection stars Mischa Barton, Devon Sawa, J. Michael Trautman and the late Michael Clarke Duncan. It’s the story of a down to earth school psychologist who tries to help a mentally ill student that actually believes his brother is coming back from the grave for revenge on the students that killed him.

Do we have to do this? Okay then. The last instalment in the inexplicably long-lived Scary Movie franchise came out in 2006. It was the fourth, meaning, at that time, that the Scary Movies had out-sequelled the Screams from which they sprung. Since then however, we've had Scream 4, so not to be outdone, Dimension now bring us Scary Movie 5. This is the second trailer to be released. Incredibly, we missed the first one. Sorry about that.What's happened in horror since 2006? The found-footage revival, basically, plus all the Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan shenanigans (not that that's horror... or maybe sort of). Sheen and Lohan get a quick scene in the trailer, which may well be their entire appearance. We've also got pot-shots at Paranormal Activity, Sinister, Mama, and the Evil Dead remake. So if you wanted to say something in its favour, it's at least up to date. »
Ever since Scream 4 was released fans have taken to our Facebook page to ask us one question: Will there be another installment in the Scream franchise? It's a question that we still haven't been able to answer. However in our attempt to search high and low for any details regarding the film we discovered this nugget of info which comes to us from the lips of franchise director, Wes Craven... Via a Q&A with Arrow in the Head, Craven revealed… »
Even before Scream 4 was released, there were rumors that it would be the first part in a new trilogy. After the movie was released, there was some talk about another sequel and possibly a TV series, but nothing materialized. Wes Craven gave an update on his involvement in another Scream movie, and fans of the franchise are probably in for a long wait.
Via Arrow in the Head: “So far I have not heard anything about Scream 5 from Bob Weinstein. There is some talk about a television series, but I don’t think anything has moved forward on that yet. That’s what I’m hearing more than anything else from the guys at Dimension. It would be them picking up the phone and asking me if I wanted to play with them, so…”
Last summer, it was reported that MTV was developing a TV series based on the Scream franchise, »

7 Questions With Nico Tortorella The Following You may recognize the sexy 24-year-old Nico Tortorella from his roles in Scream 4, Make It or Break It or The Beautiful Life, but it’s his current gig as a “follower” on Fox’s breakout series The Following (Mondays) that is capturing viewer attention.
