Ah, Nicolas Cage. Whatever your thoughts of Cage as an actor, you can’t argue the fact that he’s consistently entertaining, whether he’s appearing in an art-house indie like Leaving Las Vegas or a no-brain action blockbuster like Drive Angry or Con Air or The Rock or Bangkok Dangerous or…well, we could go on and on here.
Cage was always special, even as a kid when he used to dress up as a character called ‘The Spirit’ and prowl the alley behind his house in the early hours of the morning. Even then, there was something a little ‘off’ about the charismatic Cage.
He got into acting at an early age, aided no doubt by his connection to the Coppola family. Early roles such in films as varied as Peggy Sue Got Married, Vampire’s Kiss, Moonstruck, Raising Arizona and Wild At Heart alerted Hollywood »

The first teaser trailer for Terminator: Genisys has launched.
“I’ll be back.” Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cyborg warrior will make good on that promise next summer when Paramount unleashes Terminator: Genisys to theaters. New takes on familiar characters like Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese will be featured in the film, with Arnold once again playing a durable T-800. Ahead of the movie’s trailer debut this Thursday, a new face-dissolving motion poster has been released.
Released on TerminatorMovie.com, the motion poster (see below) features a Terminator endoskeleton’s head dissolving into what could be the sands of time. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for the release of the first Terminator: Genisys trailer on Thursday. In the meantime, we have the official plot details of the new Terminator film from the cover story that appeared in an earlier issue of EW:

Our first impression of Terminator: Genisys wasn't anything to write home about, mainly because the promotional images from Entertainment Weekly were poorly staged and looked like a TV show premiering on the SyFy Channel. But perhaps the first trailer for the film will tickle our fancy when it arrives on Thursday. In the meantime, a motion poster has arrived to tease the movie, and it sends a clear message as to what this reboot will do to the franchise. It shows one of the classic T-800 cyborgs skulls, and then it disintegrates into a pile of sand. Or maybe it's being taken apart by nanobots? It's hard to say. Look below! Here's the motion poster for Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genisys from the film's official website: Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones," Thor: The Dark World) and written by Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry).

Friends Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell came together as producing partners in 2011 as Campbell-Grobman Films after working as exec producers to help set up films such as Lionsgate’s “Leatherface 3D” and Kat Coiro’s romantic comedy “A Case of You,” which stars Justin Long, Sienna Miller and Brendan Fraser.
The duo scored with 2013’s “Texas Chainsaw 3D,” which took in $47 million worldwide.
But don’t label them as horror queens.
“We’ve done a lot of different things,” says Campbell, whose acting credits include “Drive Angry,” “The Mechanic” and a fair amount of genre. “We were nominated for an Emmy for (documentary) ‘Brave Miss World,’ ” she adds, and their list also includes exec producing duties on “She’s Funny That Way, »

The Hellraiser remake train continues to chug its way through the development inferno, and a year after his involvement was first announced, original director and author Clive Barker has revealed a few more details about what might be in store. He's just delivered his second draft of the new screenplay to his cenobite masters the Weinsteins. "I think the phrase is reboot," he says, "though I've never really understood what that meant."In recent years this new version of Barker's demented S&M demon horror has passed through the hands of Inside directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury; Saw sequel writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton; Martyrs mentalist Pascal Laugier; The Roommate's Christian E Christiansen; and the Drive Angry / My Bloody Valentine team of Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer.It seemed to get the most traction in that last period, but Lussier and Farmer then walked, seemingly because Dimension were aiming for a PG-13 certificate. »
Following yesterday's hokey Entertainment Weekly covers giving us a first look at Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney and Matt Smith in the franchise reboot Terminator: Genisys (and the completely weird plot details), some more photos have arrived. Most of them are just promo images from the same cover photoshoot, but this time showing the cast wielding their guns and screaming in rage, though all but John Connor don't seem to be concerned with actually aiming the weapon properly. However, there's at least one photo from the actual film with a first look at Arnold Schwarzenegger as an aged T-800. Here's the new photos from Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genisys from Entertainment Weekly: Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones," Thor: The Dark World) and written by Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry).

The Terminator is having a bad day. It's a muggy July afternoon in New Orleans—the temperature is loitering in the triple digits—and Arnold Schwarzenegger is inside a giant warehouse on the grounds of Nasa's Michoud Assembly Facility. Suited up in a black leather jacket with green-painted latex obscuring most of the right side of his face, he is again playing the indelible robot that solidified his place in Hollywood some 30 years ago. So far today the former governor of California has been stepped on and forced to crawl on the ground, and now, as he gasps for breath fighting his opponent, »

A first look at Terminator Genisys has finally arrived.
In September, Paramount Pictures confirmed the release dates for all three films in the new trilogy, beginning with the premiere of Terminator Genisys on July 1, 2015. The second new Terminator film will be released on May 19, 2017, and the trilogy will conclude in the third film, to be released on June 29, 2018.
In EW’s release of the new photos, the article says the film:
“is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones »

“I’ll be back.” Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cyborg warrior will make good on that promise next summer when Paramount unleashes Terminator: Genisys to theaters. While familiar characters like Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese will be played by new faces, Arnold brings his stalwart screen presence to the franchise’s next chapter, as mentioned in the film’s recently revealed plot details accompanied by new photos.
In their first look at the next installment of the Terminator franchise, EW debuted a photo of Emilia Clarke’s Sarah Connor with Jai Courtney’s Kyle Reese on a motorcycle and another picture featuring Jason Clarke’s John Connor next to Matt Smith (Doctor Who) with the T-800 endoskeleton lurking behind them.

Cloaked in hooded robes, hell-bent on destruction and ready to sacrifice innocents to please their master- worshipers of the Devil are an easy bunch to stereotype in popular portrayals. Ranked from worst to best, the extent to which they work with or against cliché and manage to be entertaining on film is profiled in the following list. This discussion does contain some spoilers!
The Last Exorcism (2010)
The Last Exorcism builds upon the skepticism of its main character, a man who performs exorcisms to give religious zealots peace of mind and as a social service to prevent any real harm to people accused of being possessed. The alleged possession and abuse of a timid country girl occupies most of the film, with a cult showing up in its final frenzied moments. Keeping the characters involved with this cult a secret, it can still be said »

Back in May, it was reported that Dimension Films was once again attempting to make "Halloween 3D," which is rumored to be a sequel to Rob Zombie's "Halloween" movies. Now comes word from producer Malek Akkad that the third film is still on track and is moving forward. "It's been a joy to work with so many creative people - ten ['Halloween'] films," he said. "We're working on eleven as we speak. We're working on a script right now. A new draft - perfect timing - is supposed to hit the day before Halloween. Hopefully my Halloween night reading will be a good read." The last installment, which was Zombie's "Halloween 2," earned only $39 million worldwide. The third film was supposed to be directed by Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry 3D), but it seems that Dimension Films is heading in a different direction. »
The terms “Grindhouse” and “Exploitation” both get thrown around a tad bit too much these days. People seem to say that their film is a “throwback” to those slimy, gritty films of the ’70s, and the only thing their films have in common with those older films, is that fact that there are fake dust and scratches digitally inserted into their films to make them look gritty. Personally, I blame the Tarantino/Rodriguez double feature Grindhouse for this resurgence of movies trying their best to look like exploitation films. What many of the filmmakers making those films don’t realize though, is that added dust and scratches doesn’t recreate the fun and adventure of those balls out, gnarly films of the ’70s, that their has to be a genuine admiration and respect for the genre to make a successful homage to the revenge-actioners of way back when. »

First there was The Driver, then there was Drive Angry, and then there was Drive. Now there’s Drive Hard — because why not? Thomas Jane plays former race-car driver Peter Roberts, now a married dad who runs a not-so-successful driving-instruction school in Gold Coast, Queensland. His crisp, business-y, chief-breadwinner wife does nothing but nag him, and he’s way behind on his daughter’s private-school tuition.
But his life, or maybe just his week, is changed when a twitchy weirdo in a black baseball cap shows up for a lesson: Simon Keller (John Cusack) is an American who just wants to learn how to drive on the other side of the road. Or so he says. Keller knows Roberts is a guy who can put the pedal to the metal, and so withi »
One of my fondest memories growing up as a young horrorphile was catching as many scary movies and fright-filled specials as I could during the month of October in order to prepare for Halloween night. With the hundreds of channel options out there for viewers these days, I thought it might be fun to break down where genre fans can catch various movies, specials and even Halloween-themed cartoons over the next 31 days so that you can start planning out your viewings in advance.
Here are some of the thrills and chills coming to your televisions this October. Please keep in mind that full schedules have not been announced everywhere yet, so we’ll be sure to update you guys with any additions to the calendar. All times listed are Et/Pt:
Wednesday, October 1st
2:00pm – The Dead (SyFy)
4:30pm – Dead Season (SyFy)
6:30pm – Halloween II (2009) (SyFy)

It doesn’t bode well for a film when it counts Jim Agnew and Sean Keller as its writers. After all the duo were responsible for penning Giallo, the film that made Dario Argento the laughing stock of Frightfest and sounded the death knell on the career of the once-master of the Italian horror genre. Then again it doesn’t bode well when a film starring Nicolas Cage makes its debut as a direct to DVD title either.
So what’s the spiel? Well:
After a life of crime in his younger years Paul Maguire (Cage), now lives a charmed life. Fully reformed from his old ways, he is now a successful businessman, with a nice house, a lovely wife (Nichols) and a wonderful daughter, who he dotes on. »

Nicolas Cage’s mysterious life often seems like a … Book of Secrets (sorry, we had to). The Oscar-winning actor, 50, has made some of the oddest, wide-ranging career choices in Hollywood history, from starring in critically-acclaimed films like 1995’s Leaving Las Vegas and 1987’s Moonstruck to ridiculous box office flops like 2011’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Drive Angry. In a rare new interview with Britain’s The Times Magazine, the always-viral Cage opened up about his life, his critics, and his seemingly bizarre oeuvre. “I’m proud of [...] »
I can see the headlines now, 'Nicolas Cage in good film shocker!' It's about time too. Knowing, Season of the Witch, Bangkok Dangerous - the taxman sure has a lot to answer for. I haven't enjoyed a Nicolas Cage movie this much since 2005's Lord of War, though parts of me still have a thing for Drive Angry. That might have more to do with Amber Heard than anything else mind. A gripping mix of friendship, violence and redemption erupts in the contemporary backwoods of the South in Joe, a gritty adaptation of Larry Brown's celebrated novel. Directed by David Gordon Green, who is now forgiven for inflicting Your Highness and The Sitter on the world, returns to his Indie roots for a film that finally gives Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage something to sink his teeth into. Nick stars as hard-living, hot-tempered ex-con Joe Ransom, who is »
“I’ll be back.” That famous line from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cyborg warrior applies not just to the Terminator character, but also to the film franchise itself. We knew that the sci-fi action series would be rebooted with the Schwarzenegger-starring Terminator: Genisys, and now release dates have been set for two additional Terminator movies from Paramount.
According to Box Office Mojo, Terminator 2 is due out on May 19th, 2017, and Terminator 3 is slated for release on June 29th, 2018. The plan is for both reboot sequels to film back-to-back. No further details are available at this time, but we’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on these movies when more information surfaces. Terminator: Genisys hits theaters on July 1st, 2015 and is directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World, Game of Thrones):
