Evan Daugherty ("Divergent," "Snow White And The Huntsman") has been brought onboard to pen the latest draft of the script for the cinematic reboot of the "Tomb Raider" franchise at Gk Films and MGM. The latter will co-finance and co-produce the project, and Warner Bros. Pictures will ultimately distribute the film.
Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics rebooted the long-running video game series in 2013 with "Tomb Raider," a high-profile title which scored major acclaim from all corners and was ultimately a good seller.
In that game we followed a younger and more realistic 21-year-old version of British archaeologist Lara Croft. The story showcases how she started out as a frightened young woman who is forced to become a hardened survivor when she is shipwrecked on a dangerous island.
The games companies are said to be working closely with Gk Films to adapt the film which will follow the new game's style, »

Like Bet, I'm encouraged by the original programming push TV One is seemingly invested in. Nothing great is built overnight, so I'm looking forward to seeing where all this investment leads. I also really appreciate the exploration of other genres, like horror in this specific case. Robin Givens, Columbus Short and Lynn Whitfield headline TV One’s next installment of its horror anthology, "Fear Files" (formerly "Fright Night Files") with 3 new terrifying tales of love, revenge and murder, on Friday, March 13 at 8Pm/Et. The new trilogy picks up where the first airing left off, by revisiting "For the Love of Lockwood," with its »

Specialty Blu-ray label Twilight Time continues to show their deep love for film with a continually growing and constantly eclectic selection of releases. The next few months will see Blu-ray titles as varied as To Sir With Love, U-Turn, The Night of the Generals and Zardoz. There were five titles on last month’s slate (released on 1/20) including a great American underdog tale in Breaking Away, an Indian biopic of uprising and war with Bandit Queen, Francois Truffaut’s female-driven revenge film The Bride Wore Black, Woody Allen’s surreal ode to the cinema in The Purple Rose of Cairo and a 30th Anniversary release of Fright Night. That last title — the only one not covered below — was actually released by the label once before with a far slimmer selection of special features. It immediately became a collector’s item, and now, barely three weeks after its re-release, this anniversary edition is already fetching ridiculous sums from »

They're not referring to him as The Purple Man, but Marvel has officially announced that David Tennant (Doctor Who, Gracepoint, Fright Night) will play 'Kilgrave' in the second of their upcoming Netflix shows, A.K.A Jessica Jones. We found out that this particularly sick Marvel comics villain would most likely be the antagonist of the series when some leaked audition videos made their way online, and expected a casting announcement pretty soon. Marvel describe the character as "an enigmatic figure from Jessica’s past, Kilgrave’s reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero’s world." Zebediah Killgrave, aka the Purple Man, has the power to influence people to do whatever he wishes, and made Jessica Jones' life a living hell by basically keeping her as his slave and forcing her to attack other superheroes. Things get pretty dark in the comics, so it'll be interesting to »

Mr. Hush (2011)
Written by: David Lee Madison
Directed by: David Lee Madison
I don’t want to reveal my hand to early on this one, but then again you guys probably know by now that I don’t rip into any film to tear it to shreds. Typically, it’s for two reasons. I see what they were trying to do with a limited budget. The heart is there, but the money ain’t. Also, I’ve had to double back on my opinions of films on the first watch. Hating it in the beginning, and then seeing something or things on another viewing that shows me that I had a gross error in judgment. Well, “Mr. Hush” puts me into a purgatory of indecision. »
Last month I selected the poster for Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank as my favorite poster of 2014. In the article I invited the “as-yet uncredited designer at P+A studio” to “come out from behind the mask and take a bow,” and so I was very pleased when I got an email from Nicolette Vilar a few days later letting me know that she was the P+A designer behind the giant papier-mâché head.
Nicolette, it turns out, was the perfect designer for a film about a fractured rock band, because as well as being a talented artist she is also the on-again, off-again lead singer of the all-female punk pop group Go Betty Go who have recently reunited and have a new Ep out this month. The band formed in 2001, released two CDs and played on the Vans Warped Tour, but Nicolette left in 2005. She recently rejoined the band with »
