With a slew of major commercial (and often critical) hits like "The Conjuring," "Insidious: Chapter 2," "World War Z," "Warm Bodies" and the terrific "Evil Dead" remake, 2013 was a great year for horror. 2014? Eeh...let's just say the business of fright was a little weak. And it wasn't just the numbers, which were bad enough - only 4 horror films broke $50 million domestic this year as compared with last year's 9 - but the quality of the films themselves that disappointed. If we're being honest, the number of truly worthwhile mainstream horror films this year can probably be counted on one hand. So what did we learn from horror's (mostly) horrible 2014? Below are 8 lessons we'll be taking away. Lesson #1: Even in a down year, horror remains the most consistently profitable genre Judging strictly by budget-to-worldwide gross ratio, the only true flop this year was the bloated Aaron Eckhart reboot "I, Frankenstein, »

Check it out below…
A mercurial assassin (Simon Pegg) discovers he isn’t the only person trying to kill the siren (Alice Braga) of a sun-drenched surfing town. In this darkly comedic thriller, the hitman finds himself unraveling three tales of mayhem, murder, blackmail and revenge.
Kill Me Three Times is set for release December 31st in the States, with a UK date yet to be announced.

More often that not, Simon Pegg’s cheeky antics have either been centre stage in intimate genre pics (Shaun Of The Dead, The World’s End) or supporting turns in major blockbusters (Mission: Impossible, Star Trek). Aside from the comedy misfire Hector And The Search For Happiness, his starring turns have remained low-key. That could all be about to change, however, with the advent of director Kriv Stenders’ black comedy, Kill Me Three Times.
Currently garnering reviews after a stint on the festival circuit, the first trailer for the movie has hit the web – and it looks like an absolute hoot. With a script by newcomer James McFarland, Kill Me Three Times follows Pegg’s assassin who is keen to take a fifty grand job offered to him. Heading to the Aussie surfing town of Eagle’s Nest, things get interesting when he realises that not only is his target the delectable Alice Braga, »

Update 12/4: Since Krysten Ritter just landed the role of Jessica Jones in the Marvel/Netflix series, we're republishing our recent guide to the character. Out of all of Marvel’s upcoming projects, the one with the least amount of “legacy” behind it is the Netflix series Jessica Jones. In fact, Marvel’s never even published a comic called Jessica Jones; the comic was called Alias, but that title was already claimed for TV by another popular action show. Casting rumors for the lead role on Jessica Jones have just started to ramp up, as Marvel builds towards its Defenders miniseries. Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad, Don’t Trust the B--- in Apartment 23), Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson, True Detective), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies...

The four-series deal between Marvel and Netflix is slowly edging closer to screens, with new names added to the casting shortlists for Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. With the first of the four shows – Daredevil – already in production, Jones, Cage and Iron Fist are still to be cast, before the four characters come together for a Defenders mini-series.
As the second of the four series, Jessica Jones will be written and executive produced by Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight), and features the titular character who essentially originated in the story of Peter Parker/Spider-Man. She was present when he was bitten by the radioactive spider, and was soon exposed to radiation herself in a car crash that killed her entire family. Adopted by the Jones family, she soon discovered she had superpowers. Eventually hanging up her superhero cape, she founded a private detective agency, through which she is continually, and reluctantly, drawn back into the superhero life. »

This year’s Blood List has named the 13 best genre scripts around town, and in its sixth year the annual screenplay contest is expanding its scope to include hot books, TV pilots, and young scribes ripe for signing. Taking top honors in 2014 is sci-fi thriller Bird Box from The Thing and Final Destination 5 scribe Eric Heisserer, an apocalyptic tale of a woman trying to lead her children to safety – all three blindfolded – after monsters descend on earth that turn people insane on sight. Universal set Heisserer to adapt the manuscript from Josh Malerman in 2013 for Mama helmer Andy Muschietti. Previous Blood List alumni include Black Swan, Stoker, Warm Bodies, and the upcoming Blumhouse thriller The Boy Next Door.

Remember when Disney announced that J.J. Abrams would direct Star Wars: Episode VII and all of Twitter lit up with lens flare jokes? (Not me. I made a Felicity joke.) Jacob T. Swinney thinks that (possible) overuse of the camera effect has led to an unfair devaluation of the camera effect. He writes,
Lens flares seem to catch a bad rap. While some are simply a stylistic element (and some are even mistakes), there are plenty of thoughtful and symbolic uses of light scattering through the lens. Here is a compilation showcasing the many different types and uses of lens flares in a variety of films.
To prove that, he has made this compilation of purposeful, thoughtful lens flares throughout cinematic history. Or actually, mostly recent films with a few older ones thrown in for cred. Still, he makes a compelling case. Abrams even makes the list. The supercut is »
