New to Streaming: ‘It’s Such a Beautiful Day,’ ‘Holy Hell,’ Quay Brothers, ‘Born to Be Blue,’ and More

29 July 2016 7:46 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Born to Be Blue (Robert Budreau)

I played jazz trumpet growing up in Oklahoma, so Chet Baker’s somber swing always brought our ensemble back to earth when Dizzy Gillespie’s flying fingers sent us noodling in quick cacophony. We thought Baker was the romantic trumpeter, the kind you’d play when you wanted to impress a date — and whose pretty-boy face on the album cover »

9 great modern B-movie directors

28 June 2016 9:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tim George Jul 14, 2016

They might not be at the level of John Carpenter or Wes Craven yet, but meet the directors who are keeping the B-movie flag flying...

B-Movies. Exploitation flicks. Genre cinema. Someone has to make them, and here is a list compiling the best of the today’s crop of filmmakers who are unabashed in their love of genres, and have honed their talents producing enjoyable and sometimes great B-Movies. While all the movies they make may not be great, do not dismiss them. The seeds of great things are contained in their filmographies, and it would come as no surprise if one or two of these guys are able to attain the same heights as luminaries like Hill, Carpenter, Craven and Corman.

Jaume Collet-Serra

One of the most consistent directors of mid level Hollywood genre fare, Collet-Serra has quietly turned into a solid genre filmmaker without too »

Interview: Calgary Horror Con Founder Dan Doherty on 6th Year of Celebrating Scares in Canada

7 June 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Editor’s Note: Our own Scott Drebit will be hosting panels this weekend at the sixth annual Calgary Horror Con. Ahead of the three-day event, Scott caught up with the convention’s CEO and founder, Dan Doherty, to discuss what sparked his love of the genre, the convention’s origin, this year’s special guest lineup, and more.]

Dan, let’s start at the start. When did you first get into horror?

Dan Doherty: I’ve been into horror since I was a kid—I’m not sure of the exact age. For me, it was a way to test my bravery. I was bullied a bit growing up, and it was a way to test it from a safe distance. And then after a while, it just becomes an adrenaline rush; you immerse yourself in a good horror film, but there isn’t much that scares me these days other than public washrooms [laughs]. I can remember watching C.H.U.D. when I was fairly young, maybe ten, but I’m not sure if that was the first. All I know is that once I was introduced to horror, I was hooked.

That seems to be the case with pretty much everyone—once you’re in, »

The Wave

Norway gets the old-fashioned disaster film genre up on its feet again with a well-made, scary story set in a Northern fjord, where a devastating tsunami is a genuine threat. Fine acting by fresh faces helps as well -- with no Bs or hype to get in the way, we find ourselves as anxious as the characters in the movie. The Wave Blu-ray Magnolia Home Entertainment 2015 / Color / 2:39 widescreen / 105 min. / Bølgen / Street Date June 21, 2016 / 26.97 Starring Kristoffer Joner, Ane Dahl Torp, Jonas Hoff Oftebro, Edith Haagenrud-Sande, Fridtjov Såheim, Laila Goody, Arthur Berning, Herman Bernhoft.

Big Short's Adam McKay To Direct Comic Book Movie Irredeemable, Adapted By Dead Snow's Tommy Wirkola

6 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

This is an interesting combination. Deadline reported yesterday that The Big Short director Adam McKay will be directing an adaptation of the Boom! Comics comic book Irredeemable. Further adding to the intrigue, Dead Snow writer and director Tommy Wirkola is currently penning the adaptation.   McKay is already familiar with working in the superhero genre. He was brought in to work on the screenplay for the first Ant-Man film after Edgar Wright’s exit from the project. He has since written the story for the sequel, Ant-Man and The Wasp, with star Paul Rudd. In the Mark Waid-created comic book that debuted in 2009 and lasted 36 issues, the central figure is the Plutonian, the world’s greatest superhero until he began heartlessly slaughtering the population of...

Adam McKay to Direct 'Irredeemable' for Fox

6 May 2016 5:47 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Wrap reports that director Adam McKay ("The Big Short", "Anchorman") has signed on to direct the comic book adaptation, "Irredeemable", for 20th Century Fox.

The Boom! comic book series follows the fall of the world's greatest superhero, the Plutonian, as he begins slaughtering the population of Earth. His former allies, the superhero group The Paradigm, attempt to find a way to stop his rampage while dealing with their own problems of betrayal and hopelessness.

McKay will work on the script with screenwriter Tommy Wirkola whose credits include "Dead Snow" and "Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunter." McKay previously co-wrote the script for Marvel Studios' "Ant-man" last summer.

Adam McKay to direct Irredeemable, an evil superhero movie

5 May 2016 4:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

Coming off The Big Short and Ant-Man, Adam McKay is now directing an adaptation of Mark Waid's Irredeemable!

Last year, Adam McKay made The Big Short, one of the best films of 2015 and a dizzyingly complex comedy-drama-turned tragedy about the 2000s housing market crash. It snagged McKay an Oscar too, for Best Adapted Screenplay. Having also written the final draft for Marvel StudiosAnt-Man, many expected his next film might be of the superhero variety. And yes it is, but not in the way you may expect.

Representing McKay stepping away, at least for the time being, from Marvel, he's partnering with 20th Century Fox to make a superhero movie with nary a mutant or X-Man in sight. Indeed, pulling from Boom! Comics, Fox is looking to diversify its masked men portfolio with an entirely separate superhero franchise based around the Irredeemable comic series.

Five Scariest Marvel Comics Villains

8 March 2016 12:39 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

 

Marvel is almost universally known for its Superheroes, who are often forced to do battle against the forces of evil. This is an age-old comic book narrative, and one that translates well into the television and film sector.

This trend is changing, however, with anti-heroes and villains holding much more intrigue and allure for the viewing public. The popularity of DC’s Suicide Squad offers a relevant case in point, as it includes some of comic book histories most ferocious villains and portrays them in vulnerable, more appealing roles.

1. Carnage

While Carnage is not the most renowned Marvel character, he actually makes Venom look like a cuddly bear. Bonded with the fierce serial killer Cletus Kassady, the Carnage character is arguably the most powerful villain of all-time and one that embodies fear, strength and all-encompassing hatred. He most famously did battle with Spider-Man, who joined forced with Venom to defeat his foe. »

[Review] The Wave

3 March 2016 3:44 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Over the past decade, Norway has managed to out-Hollywood the thrill-happy American film industry by producing their own big-budget spectacles. Works such as the 2010 found-footage oddity Troll Hunter, the 2009 dark horror comedy Dead Snow and its uproariously gory sequel, Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, and the 2013 action-adventure film Ragnorak recall the finer qualities of big domestic blockbusters, only with the extra cinematic advantage of pristine, breathtakingly photogenic scenery.

Now comes Scandinavia’s first-ever disaster movie, The Wave, which is also notable for its director, Roar Uthaug, Aka the helmer behind the forthcoming Tomb Raider reboot. Based in his past credits, including the alpine horror film Cold Prey and the period thriller Escape, Uthaug is no stranger to crowd-pleasing genre fare, and his latest showcases his knack for utilizing familiar, tried-and-true tropes.

The film opens in Geiranger, a Norwegian fjord-side tourist town situated at the foot of Åkerneset, a mountainous region known for its instability. »

Glasgow Frightfest: ‘The Wave’ Review

In recent years Norway has been cranking out some fantastic genre films – Troll Hunter, Dead Snow and its sequel, Rare Exports, Thale and the Cold Prey series. All of which have been takes on American genre fare (zombies, slasher movies) or based on folk tales (Rare Exports, Thale). Until now. Director Roar Uthaug, the man behind the three Cold Prey movies, turns his hand from the horrors of the slasher movie to the horrors of nature with The Wave, a disaster movie of real-life proportions…

Okay.

I know. It hurts. We’re super old and it’s a problem. Kids who were born the day Shaun came out are in secondary school. They’ve probably hit puberty. They’re feeling weird feelings about each other that they can’t explain. Their parents are probably starting to piss them off. Their parents who are probably us. We could be the parents of »
