The sudden death of Paul Walker late last year was a tragedy for a number of reasons. It also left a hole in the 2014 schedule for a muscular, action-driven car movie, since the seventh entry in the "Fast and Furious" franchise has been rescheduled for April 2015. Just because we don't have a "Fast and Furious" movie in the pipeline doesn't mean that we will be denied some gasoline-drenched mayhem, as "Need for Speed," based on the series of wildly popular Electronic Arts video games, races into theaters nationwide this week.
It's the story of a young man (played by "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul) who is framed for a horrible crime and decides to exact revenge by entering into a dangerous cross-country race. You know, like you would do if someone set you up. It's got a bunch of hunky dudes (like Kid Cudi) doing things that you should probably never do with a car, »

All Is By My Side will follow the early career of legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix, leading up to his meteoric rise to fame. The biopic stars multi-platinum recording artists Andre Benjamin, of OutKast, as the charismatic Hendrix, and has a cast that also includes Imogen Poots (Fright Night), Hayley Atwell (Captain America), and Burn Gorman (The Dark Knight Rises). John Ridley, who won an Academy Award this past Sunday for his work on the 12 Years A Slave screenplay, wrote and directed the film.
We’ve now been given our first glimpse of the film itself with this brief clip. It shoes Hendrix (Benjamin) having a conversation with Linda Keith (Poots), a beautiful young model that had dated Keith Richard of The Rolling Stones, and had a major hand in getting Hendrix discovered.
Here’s the clip:

[Update: Sources close to LeBron James have refuted this story. Scroll for details.]
1980s movies and TV shows have inspired more remakes/reboots than just about any other cinematic era, with movies like The Clash of the Titans, The Thing, The A-Team, The Evil Dead, Fright Night, RoboCop, and so on coming out in the past decade. The ’90s then must be the decade of the sequel, with Men in Black 3, Before Sunrise, and the upcoming Jurassic World all continuing stories that came out before Y2K.
Now another beloved ’90s movie is getting its own sequel thanks to a famous basketball player’s childhood dream.
Deadline is reporting that LeBron James will star ...

When it comes to movie monsters, there is no comparison. Dinner with a zombie would inevitably get messy. Frankenstein's Monster is a lousy conversationalist. Werewolves are boring three weeks out of every four.
But vampires? Now you're talking. Vampires are suave, stylish and sexy. Even when they turn on you, you get the benefit of eternal youth and an excuse to stay up all night, every night.
The simplest way to become a vampire is to don fake teeth and fangs very much, I vant to suck your blood. Yet Max Schreck went much further, perfecting a chillingly inhuman look as Nosferatu with a bald head, rat's ears and long nails.
The reclusive Schreck kept his acting »
With Valentine's Day and Presidents' Day falling on the same wintery weekend, the studios are betting that love sick couples and self-loathing singles will both be lining up for some romantic movies this weekend -- how else to explain the simultaneous release of an unnecessary "Endless Love" remake, an "About Last Night" redo, and "Winter's Tale," arguably the most "original" of the three V-Day offerings but still an adaptation of a 1983 novel written by Mark Helprin.
The film was written and directed by Akiva Goldsman, perhaps best known for his Oscar-winning screenplay for "A Beautiful Mind" (or, conversely, for running the Batman franchise into the ground with the script for "Batman & Robin"), and stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Jennifer Connelly, and Russell Crowe. Oh, and Will Smith (more on that in a minute). It's a tale of timeless love and spiritual reawakening and is designed to make couples everywhere »

A few years ago I wrote a piece on my blog Day of the Woman about unrealistic horror couples, this isn’t to be confused with “worst horror couples” or like what Ryan Turek over at Shock Till You Drop posted, “Doomed Horror Romances.” Instead, I wanted to focus on couples in horror movies that really have no business being together. Some of these couples I’m judging from the shallow perspective of appearances, but some of these couples just don’t seem compatible. Now that I’m a little older and a little more in tune to what actually makes for a good relationship, I’ve re-vamped and revitalized this list just in time for everyone’s favorite holiday developed by the greeting card industry. Note: If you and your significant other resemble any of the couples we make fun of, we’re not making fun of you…we »

Jay Baruchel, currently starring in this week’s biggest release Robocop, has signed on to front The Ten O’Clock People. A delicious sounding old school horror based on a short story by Stephen King. Originally Justin Long had been inked in to star, but that was in the summer of 2012 and a lot can change in that time. Baruchel will play a smoker, who begins to see that people in authority are actually monsters. As only smokers can see them for what they truly are, Baruchel bands with other smokers to form The Ten O’Clock People, named after the time in which they have a cigarette break. It sounds a tad silly, and a tad awesome all at the same time, which has me very excited.

Jay Baruchel has signed on to star in the Stephen King adaptation The Ten O'Clock People. The project once had Justin Long and Rachel Nichols attached to star back in 2012, but they are no longer involved.
The story centers on a man named Brandon Pearson (Jay Baruchel), who takes a cessation drug to try and quit smoking. When he starts smoking again with the drug still in his system, it triggers a side effect where Brandon can see that several authority figures are actually monsters.
Horror veteran Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child's Play) is directing from his own adapted screenplay, with Don Carmody attached to produce. Jay Baruchel, Pascal Borno, Scott Karol, E.J. Meyers and Nathaniel Kramer serving as executive producers. Production is slated to begin this June, in Jay Baruchel's hometown of Montreal, with the project currently being shopped to buyers at the European Film Market.
