Watch The Board Game That Kills In New Trailer For Ouija

23 September 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“You damn fool kids will never learn,” said the tubby fisherman in The Blair Witch Project. While that plaid-clad chap was referring to the meddlesome antics of three young filmmakers in the woods, his brief mutter still stands true in regards to the activities in most teen horrors today. Which ties in nicely, as a new trailer proves that’s still very much the case in the upcoming horror film, Ouija.

If you haven’t already guessed, the movie involves a gaggle of youngsters who happen upon a Ouija board and attempt to rouse a spirit from the afterlife. Co-written by Stiles White and Juliet Snowden, and directed by the former, it’s guaranteed to hit the spot for audiences venturing to the theatre this Halloween. Today’s trailer, brought to you by Universal, delivers sufficient teases for the late show crowds.

22 September 2014 2:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in July it was reported that Colin Farrell had entered talks with HBO about joining the cast of True Detective for its second season, and now the actor has confirmed his involvement with the critically acclaimed show during an interview with Irish newspaper Sunday World.

“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited. I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.”

Other names reportedly in the frame for roles in the second season of True Detective include Taylor Kitsch (Battleship), Vince Vaughn (Delivery Man), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Rachel McAdams (About Time), Brit Marling (The Keeping Room), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Jaimie Alexander »

Review: 'A Walk Among The Tombstones' Starring Liam Neeson And Dan Stevens

18 September 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Before sitting down to watch the new Liam Neeson movie, audiences have been prepped to see the weary-faced action star kicking ass with class, thanks to entertaining flicks like “Taken,” “Non-Stop,” and “The Grey.” But, for every “Taken” there’s a “Taken 2,” and if one year the grizzly Irishman can come out with something as forceful as “The Grey,” the following year “Battleship” can sink people’s opinions once more. It’s just not simple to put a finger on the prospects of a new Neeson film, particularly one directed by screenwriter-turned-director Scott Frank. The only previous feature Frank has directed was the overlooked and underrated “The Lookout,” and he's also got “Get Shorty” and “Out Of Sight” under his writing belt, as well as the less memorable “Flight Of The Phoenix.” With this combined pedigree from the actor and writer-director, the two dominant forces behind “A Walk Among The Tombstones, »

Gorgeous model turned actress Brooklyn Decker might be every man's fantasy gal! She's got a body to die for, a mega-watt smile, a good sense of humor – plus she loves football. 

She's the perfect gal for any football crazy guy – and which guy isn’t a bit nutty now that football season is here!

Too bad the "Battleship" actress ended up marrying former tennis pro Andy Roddick. "I know I was football fan long before I was tennis fan," confesses Brooklyn to Healthy Hollywood.

The Grand Seduction review: Brendan Gleeson tries to woo Taylor Kitsch

26 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Don McKellar; Screenwriter: Michael Dowse, Ken Scott; Starring: Brendan Gleeson, Taylor Kitsch, Liane Balaban, Gordon Pinsent, Rhonda Rodgers; Running time: 113 mins; Certificate: 12A

Brendan Gleeson is perfectly cast in The Grand Seduction, a comedy drama that aims to send up the postcard image of rural life. Unfortunately, Canadian director Don McKellar falls into his own trap with a storytelling style that wavers between wry cynicism and twee romanticism.

American muscle-head Taylor Kitsch (Battleship, John Carter) loses some of that action hero bulk to play Dr Paul Lewis, but he still looks out of place in a small fishing village where he is forced to act as Gp after getting caught with cocaine at customs. Just the name, Tickle Cove, is enough to conjure a picture of seaside tranquillity, but on the contrary, the fishing business has dried up and its residents need to find an alternative source of revenue »

Your Favorite Female Pop Stars’ Worst Big Screen Debuts

15 August 2014 6:18 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

When it comes to music, these girls have it all. They can sing. They can dance. And they can act — err, wait a minute on the last one. Sadly, a powerful voice, a magnetic personality in interviews, or killer dance moves in music videos doesn’t mean a pop star has what it takes to be an actress. With practice, some do get better. But if their big screen debuts are any precursor, some of them better stick to their main gig and leave the acting to the professionals.

Check out the 10 worst big screen debuts from your favorite female pop stars, including Britney Spears, Rihanna, and Taylor Swift. (Oh yeah, the latter is making her return to the big screen in The Giver, co-starring Meryl Streep, in theaters this weekend.)

Given that so many singers make cameos and small, often uncredited appearances in films, we limited the big screen »

All the actors rumored to star in 'True Detective' season 2

5 August 2014 1:27 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The casting process for True Detective’s second season has become just about as complicated as Rust and Marty’s search for the Yellow King in season one. And if you add in the 21st-century problem of social media—which the Yellow King was not a big fan of—one could argue that it’s an even more complicated puzzle. For months, there have been rumors surrounding the number of leads—two! three! four!—and from there, rumors surrounding who will play those leads—Josh Brolin! Brad Pitt! Jessica Chastain!

Taylor Kitsch Offered Lead Role in The Raid Remake

5 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Taylor Kitsch is a solid actor who had a bad run of box office flops that included the likes of John Carter and Battleship. Just because he had a few bombs it doesn't mean he's not talented. I enjoyed him in Friday Night Lights and one of his more recent films, Lone Survivor.  According to The Wrap he has recently been offered the lead role in The Raid remake, which is being directed by Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3). 

If cast, the actor will join Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), who confirmed himself that he was going to be in the movie. I really wish this remake wasn't happening, I just don't see how it can be as badass and hardcore as what we've seen in the original films. The cast they are putting together though is pretty solid so far. 

When talking about the story that the remake will tell, »

Battleship’s Taylor Kitsch May Take on The Raid Remake

5 August 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Hollywood’s upcoming remake of Gareth Evans’ “The Raid” already has a director in Patrick Hughes, who is coming off “The Expendables 3,” along with a screenwriter in Brad Ingelsby, but it still needs a star. Is that Taylor Kitsch? Word from The Wrap is that the “Battleship,” “John Carter,” and most recently, “Lone Survivor” star has been offered the lead in the upcoming movie, but apparently there’s a chance Kitsch might end up doing HBO’s critically acclaimed “True Detective” instead — or do both, one after another. The remake will closely follow Evans’ original, following “an elite Indonesian Swat that gets trapped inside a building run by a vicious gangster and his thugs.” Much ass kicking and killing commences. It’s basically also the same premise for the “Dredd” remake. The 2011 film, originally titled “The Raid: Redemption,” cemented the international presence of Evans and his star, Iko Uwais. »

Taylor Kitsch Being Courted for the Lead in the Unnecessary Remake of 'The Raid'

5 August 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There a lot of movies I hear or read people rave about, and when I finally watch them I'm underwhelmed.

"The Raid" is not one of those movies. It's every bit the thrill ride people say it is; so it's no surprise Hollywood wants to remake it.

I'm not inherently against remakes, there are several I like quite a bit. "The Departed" and "Last House on the Left" are great examples of remakes that are equal to, and in many ways surpass, the original films. That being said, I'll try to have an open mind watching the American remake of "The Raid," but I'm not terribly optimistic at this point.

The Wrap is reporting that Taylor Kitsch has been offered the lead role. I've seen Kitsch in "Savages", "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", "Battleship" and "John Carter of Mars," and I wasn't exactly impressed. 

What so you think? Can Kitsch pull off the role? »

Taylor Kitsch Offered Lead in The Raid Remake

5 August 2014 4:22 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

The Wrap is reporting that Taylor Kitsch (Battleship, John Carter) has been offered the leading role in the upcoming English-language remake of "The Raid," which will be directed by Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3). "The Raid" tells the story of an elite DEA Fast team that becomes trapped in a tenement run by a notorious drug lord, his two highly-violent martial arts killers, and a personal militia armed with machetes and machine guns. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the team must fight their way through the city's worst to survive their mission. Kitsch is also up for a major part in the second season of HBO's "True Detective," which may create a scheduling conflict for "The Raid." Stay tuned. »

Taylor Kitsch Offered ‘The Raid’ Remake Lead Role

4 August 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It wasn’t long ago that Taylor Kitsch was expected to be the next big box office draw. 2012 saw the Friday Night Lights star headline three major films in the form of John CarterBattleship, and Savages. Unfortunately for the actor, all of those projects failed to connect with audiences, and his career stalled before it even really started.

However, his past failures haven’t caused him to give up hope just yet. A new report suggests that Kitsch is being offered the lead role in the upcoming English-language remake of the action film The Raid - while rumors continue to circulate about his potential involvement with season two of the HBO crime drama True Detective.

The Wrap‘s sources are saying that Expendables 3 ...

Taylor Kitsch Has an Offer for the Lead Role in Remake of 'The Raid'

4 August 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

A remake of the Indonesian action hit The Raid has been in the works since 2011, but it wasn't until earlier this year that The Expendables 3 director Patrick Hughes was brought on board to direct the film. Production was delayed slightly back to 2015, and the cast is currently being rounded up with Frank Grillo being the only confirmed cast member after being mentioned on a shortlist with desired stars like Ethan Hawke, Anthony Mackie and Luke Evans. However, a new name has emerged who wasn't on the shortlist as The Wrap has learned that John Carter and Battleship star Taylor Kitsch has an offer for the lead role. However, it's far form a done deal, because Kitsch is still in consideration for a lead role in the second season of HBO's original series "True Detective." It appears he could still end up with that coveted television role, but his representatives »

Be Afraid of Board Games in First Poster, Trailer and Stills for Ouija

17 July 2014 6:18 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The first trailer for the upcoming horror movie inspired by a Ouija Board has finally been released, but it’s hard to say whether or not it was worth the wait! It marks the directorial debut of Stiles White, and the cast is made up of the usual sort of good looking unknowns who will likely be dispatched one after the other.

Anyone who has ever played around with a Ouija Board know there’s no real reason to be afraid of them, but this group of friends – who are trying to contact their recently deceased friend – soon find out that her death was no accident and that there may in fact be something far more sinister about this particular board game.

In the trailer, we get to see some of the nasty things that some of the friends go through, and the movie could find some success thanks to »
