Marshall and Belinda take their sone, nine year old Daniel, to a church late one night for an exorcism. An old priest (Monsignor Paul) and a young priest (seminary student Matthew) take Daniel into a back room. as the monsignor begins the rites, Daniel’s sweet boyish face changes. It grows pale and veiny, his eyes glow, and his teeth grow sharp. Matthew tries to hold the boy down but is no match for his super strength. He ties the boy to ornate bars on the edges of the table he is on, but the demon is too strong. Daniel pulls the bar free and uses it to beat the priests.
When Nick and Hank arrive on the scene, the monsignor is dead and Matthew has been taken to the hospital. »

With G.I. Joe: Retaliation pulling in $375 million around the globe, Paramount wasted little time in securing director Jon M. Chu to helm the third instalment, as well as bringing in Evan Daugherty, screenwriter of Snow White and the Huntsman, Divergent and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to tackle the script for the threequel. Speaking to Rama's Screen, Daugherty has briefly discussed his work on G.I. Joe 3, although he really wasn't giving much away about the film.
"I think they gotta keep me sworn to secrecy on this one. I gotta stay quiet because I'm literally in the middle of writing it. What I'll say for this new movie, what we're trying to do, what I'm trying to do as a fan of the original cartoon in particular and the comic book as well - the comics are somewhat different than the cartoon - we're just really trying to make a totally great G. »

Screenwriter Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman,Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Divergent) is in the process of developing the script for G.I. Joe 3. I really wish they would just scrap what they've done for this movie franchise so far and start from scratch. The first movie sucked, the second was slightly better, but not much, and I imagine the third isn't going to be good.
During an interview with Rama's Screen the writer gives an update on where he's at with writing the movie,
"I think they gotta keep me sworn to secrecy on this one. I gotta stay quiet because I’m literally in the middle of writing it. When you called, I was writing it. Sometime in the next few months, I would imagine."
He goes on to talk about killing off Duke, and where he is drawing his inspiration on while working on the movie. »

After a number of rumours over the last few weeks, Paramount Pictures and powerhouse producer Jerry Bruckheimer have confirmed they’ve reunited for a first look deal. Earlier this year, it’s thought the commercial failure of The Lone Ranger was the cause of Bruckheimer and Disney parting ways. Now, the iconic producer of Hollywood hit action franchises Beverly Hills Cop, Pirates Of The Caribbean and Bad Boys has returned to his former home. Check out the official press release below:
Hollywood, CA (December 6, 2013) – Paramount Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer have reached a three-year, first-look agreement for theatrical films that will begin in April 2014. The deal was announced jointly today by Paramount Pictures Chairman and CEO Brad Grey and Jerry Bruckheimer, on behalf of Bruckheimer Films.
Bruckheimer’s first picture with the studio under the new deal is targeted to be a new Beverly Hills Cop, which is being written »

Bruckheimer’s first picture with the studio under the new deal is targeted to be a new Beverly Hills Cop, which is being written for Eddie Murphy by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec, who together wrote Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
In September, Disney and Bruckheimer agreed not renew their first-look deal - after 27 films, earning more than $5.4bn worldwide - when it expires in 2014. The studio and producer will continue working together on projects including the fifth instalment of Pirates Of The Caribbean.

Although the first installment in Paramount’s toy-based movie franchise G.I. Joe: Rise Of Cobra was a misfire to say the least, the second film was dramatically improved both in terms of story and tone. The dark and gritty style along with the added star power of Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis certainly helped the quality of G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
Despite the long delay, re-shoots and production issues that the film suffered from, it still ended up grossing slightly more than its predecessor, which lead Paramount to begin development on a third film in the series. Evan Daugherty (Snow White And Huntsman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) was hired as writer of the untitled third G.I. Joe film, which he is currently hard at work penning. Now Daugherty has spoken a little bit about the upcoming sequel and also touches on the shocking decision to kill Channing Tatum’s »

Evan Daugherty has written scripts for some fairly big, upcoming projects in the wake of his work on Snow White and the Huntsman. In September, Daugherty added G.I. Joe 3 to a list of upcoming blockbusters that already included Divergent and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. So where is Daugherty at in the script writing process on the next Joe film? "I think they gotta keep me sworn to secrecy on this one. I gotta stay quiet because I’m literally in the middle of writing it. When you called, I was writing it," said Evan to Rama's Screen during their phoner. However, he did go on to talk about when he'd be turning in his first draft, "Sometime in the next few months, I would imagine." When asked about Duke and whether he would have killed off the popular Joe in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Daugherty stated, "Would I have »
Paramount Pictures Australia has closed its Perth office and eliminated the sales function in its Brisbane office, while marketing for South Australia is now being handled out of Victoria.
As a result, seven permanent employees have departed.
Sales for Queensland and Wa are now being handled out of Sydney but the Brisbane office will continue to run marketing in that State. Paramount was the last of the major distributors to maintain an office in Perth.
In October the studio laid off 110 employees globally in areas such as international theatrical and home media distribution, marketing, legal and finance.
Paramount has the smallest release slate of the Hollywood studios, although it has scored at the global box-office this year with G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Star Trek Into Darkness, World War Z and Bad Grandpa, »

During a recent interview, the actor revealed that he didn't read any of the original comic books to prepare for the role, and how he connected with the character.
"I actually didn't read any of the comic books- and I really hope I don't offend anyone saying that- but for me, I think we all know who Raphael is. He's known as the angry hothead of the group. He is quick tempered and is quick to act. He is less thoughtful of people's feelings and emotions and consequences. That's something I can relate to as a person. I am very quick to act, like, 'Okay, decision's made, let's go for it.'
So I can relate to him in that sense, »
Megan Fox talked about her second pregnancy recently, saying that her son Noah is such a distraction that he has made the second pregnancy "a lot easier." The 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' star is set to have her second baby with husband Brian Austin Green soon and says she's still so busy with their 14-month-old son, Noah, she's not thinking too much about the pains of expecting. She told E! news: "For the most part, I would say it's been a lot easier. I think that could have a lot to do with the fact that I already have a baby, so I'm so distracted taking care of him, that I don't really have time to sit and lament on the fact that I'm pregnant or indulge my pregnancy." Although Megan and Brian have kept the sex of their baby a secret, it is rumored they will have another boy. »
The Wall Street Journal has reported that even though Star Wars characters are owned by Disney and The Lego Movie is owned by Warner Bros., a few of them might be making appearances in the upcoming animated film.
The article speculates that since The Lego Movie has been in development since before Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm that it's possible the deal was put in place prior. Lucasfilm and Lego have a good working relationship, certainly more so than rivals Warner Bros. and Disney.
If true, I'm sure Disney isn't too upset about Star Wars characters being in The Lego Movie, since they need to make a franchise that's been through ups and downs relevant again on the silver screen ahead of Star Wars: Episode VII in 2015.

We told you recently that comics publisher Idw had created a production company to develop projects based on their comics. Today they announced one of those projects, and it sounds like it could be pretty great. It’s a TV series based on actor Michael Chiklis‘s (No Ordinary Family, The Shield) comic series Pantheon, about Greek gods in the modern day:
Idw Entertainment To Develop And Produce Michael Chiklis’s Pantheon
The Story of Greek Gods Resurfacing In Present Day
San Diego, CA (November 21, 2013) – Michael Chiklis has joined forces with Idw Entertainment to develop and produce his comic series Pantheon as a new scripted live-action television series. Idw Entertainment will fund the development of the project and will be co-produced with Circle of Confusion.
While the story of Pantheon is under wraps, it involves Greek Gods returning to the present day.
Slated as direct to series, Pantheon will boast Chiklis, »

Alan Ritchson photographed by Clinton Gaughran for TheBacklot
You’ve come a long way, Alan Ritchson.
It was just two short years ago when we sat down with Ritchson, then a regular on Spike’s Blue Mountain State, for a chat and photo shoot and the conversation went from whether his Blue Mountain State character – frat boy Thad Castle – was gay to playing Aquaman on TV’s Smallville to the handsome actor’s aspirations beyond being known for his early modeling days. Fast forward two years and Ritchson is definitely moving into the next phase of his promising career with a juicy part in one of the biggest holiday films this season, the Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire.
In the film, which stars Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Toby Jones and Stanley Tucci, Ritchson plays Gloss, a male District 1 tribute in the 75th Hunger Games. »

Trailers and posters for the upcoming Lego Movie have done their very best to make sure you know that superheroes like Batman (voiced by Will Arnett), Superman (Channing Tatum), Green Lantern (Jonah Hill) and Wonder Woman (Cobie Smulders) will all have prominent roles in the movie - but their additions really shouldn't be that surprising. Warner Bros., which is making The Lego Movie, owns all of the film rights to DC Comics' characters, and cross promotion within the studio makes all kinds of sense. What is bizarre, however, is watching the trailers and seeing characters like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, whose film rights don't belong to WB. And now that same question can be applied to the cast of Star Wars, who, according to The Wall Street Journal, will also have parts in the stop-motion animated movie. Sources close to the production of the upcoming film have told »
The only way there can be any more excitement surround the gloriously absurd looking The Lego Movie would be if there was a video game by the guys that did Lego Star Wars. Well, it's happening. The cover for The Lego Movie Videogame (catchy title) was released today and it's certainly got my attention.
The official press release says, "The Lego Movie Videogame will bring players into the humorous and action packed role of Emmet, an ordinary Lego mini figure mistakenly thought to be The Special, a character supposed to save the world from an evil Lego tyrant. Throughout the game, players can harness the awesome power of the Master Builders to construct new extraordinary Lego creations, while taking on the role of more than 90 playable characters inspired by the film in 15 exciting levels."
The game shall be released in February 2014 alongside the movie itself, which features an impressive voice »

While there hasn't been any news on an actor taking the part or details on the character appearing in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, many have still wondered if Casey Jones will be in the new film. Geek Tyrant talked to someone close to the project, and unfortunately, they say the character will definitely not appear in Jonathan Liebesman's film. The answer I got, sadly, was a defeating "No." Instead of Casey Jones (my favorite Tmnt »

We had all probably figured as much since no actor was ever announced as being cast in the role (though these things can sometimes be successfully kept a secret) but Geek Tyrant reckon they've confirmed that Casey Jones will definitely not be making an appearance in the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. They cite a source "very close to the production" as revealing that the character played by Will Arnett, Vernon Fenwick, has had his role expanded -- presumably to compensate and give April O'Neil (Megan Fox) someone to bounce off. So not a Huge surprise, but disappointing nonetheless. One bit of potential good news is that the movie's action will apparently be "over the top greatness, comparable to The Raid". A silver lining? Only time will tell. »
Hollywood is positioning 2015 to be the single biggest year for movies in the history of the medium, with The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: Episode VII, Batman Vs. Superman, Mission: Impossible 5 and Bond 24 all arriving within months of each other. But standing in the way are the twelve months of 2014. While the New Year doesn't quite pack the heated punch of 2015, it does bring some highly anticipated fare that we simply can't wait to see. From plenty of superheroes, to evolved apes, to giant robots, to teenage vampires, and even the return of Dominic Toretto, here are the 14 movies guaranteed to get us standing in front of that box office window buying a ticket before 2015 does its ultimate damage on our savings account.
Whoopi Goldberg Presents Moms Mabley, exclusively on HBO, celebrates the legacy of the pioneering comedienne. Often referred to as “the funniest woman in the world,” the iconic African-American standup comedienne Jackie “Moms” Mabley broke racial and sexual boundaries and continues to inspire comedians, to this day.
