Wow. For some reason I was kind of expecting Horns to not be any good or, at least, not be something I’d be into. I’ve actually been carrying this perception around since the film started shooting some time ago. But this trailer just changed my mind and I’m now looking forward to it in a major way. I was totally underestimating this movie and certainly wasn’t expecting this kind of biting sense of humor. Especially from director Alexandre Aja, a talented guy whose work I have yet to be able to connect with. Now, thanks to this trailer from today’s presentation at the San Diego Comic-Con, I’m legitimately enthusiastic. In this adaptation of the Joe Hill novel, Daniel Radcliffe stars as Ig Perrish, the main suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend (Juno Temple). Hit the jump to check out the new Horns trailer and poster, »

Alexandre Aja's 'Horns' arrives in theatres this Halloween and already we've been treated to an array of teasers and images mostly featuring lead star Daniel Radcliffe ('The Woman in Black') donning a couple of demonic horns. Radcliffe stars as Ig who upon discovering his girlfriend has been brutally murdered wakes up with a pair of horns growing out of his head. The story is based on the Joe Hill novel and a brand new poster has been unveiled by IGN once more featuring Danny boy, co-star Juno Temple ('The Dark Knight Rises') and a nest of slithery snakes. Alongside Radcliffe we have Max Minghella ('The Social Network'), Joe Anderson ('The Crazies'), Kelli Garner, Heather Graham and 'Dexter' star James Remar all supporting. Check out the new poster below. »
Daniel Radcliffe is no stranger to making movies with a darker tone (many of the Harry Potter movies were very dark, The Woman in Black was a horror) but his upcoming film Horns is taking a turn down an even more twisted path.
This Halloween we will see Radcliffe with literal horns growing out of his head on the big screen, but if you can’t wait until then, check out the latest poster for the film that was released on author Joe Hill's official Tumblr just in time for Comic-Con.
The film, based on the popular novel by Joe Hill (son of horror genius Stephen King), follows Ig Perrish, who wakes up with horns growing out of his head following the mysterious murder of his girlfriend (played by Juno Temple). That’s all evident in this poster, with Radcliffe and his horns looking like an undead version of Mr. »

Many happy returns to Daniel Radcliffe, who celebrates his 25th birthday today (July 23)! He may have made a name for himself as heroic wizard Harry Potter, but in the years since Deathly Hallows - Part 2, he's excelled in small indies and displayed something of a flare for comedy.
1. "I am Harry Potter"
Daniel was recently snapped flanked by a lot of dogs on the set of Judd Apatow's Tranwreck. However, the duo's relationship can be tracked back a few years to this hilarious Funny or Die video of Apatow quizzing the Harry Potter star on his alter ego...
Daniel assures us fame hasn't gone to his head in this Bad Teeth spoof video, but »

2013 saw a record rise in movies granted the 12A certificate.
In total 321 big screen releases were rated 12A last year, including box office hit The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and the Oscar-winning Gravity.
The number represents a sharp climb from the 234 12A titles in 2012. However, according to BBFC director David Cooke, there is still some consumer confusion about what the certificate means.
Cooke told the BBC that a "significant minority" of 10,000 people polled - 27% - were unclear about the rating.
"It's inherently a slightly more complicated explanation than most," he said, adding that "parents are far better placed than us to judge whether a particular film would give their child too intense an experience or not".
12A releases have now overtaken 15 certificate films. The rating means that children under the age of 12 must be accompanied to the film by an adult.

As Jack Reacher attracts the most complaints, the BBFC reveals it classified record numbers of 12A movies in 2013...
New data released regarding film classification in the UK has revealed that 2013 saw a record number of movies being given the 12A certificate.
In all, 321 films classified by the BBFC in 2013 were given a 12A, up from 234 in 2012. And, for the first time, the number of 12A classified movies overtook the number of films getting a 15 certificate.
The data has come to light in the annual report from the British Board Of Film Classification, which acknowledged that there was a "significant minority" of people who remain puzzled as to what 12A actually stands for.
The most complained about of all 12A films was the Tom Cruise-headlined Jack Reacher, which received 26 complaints. The year before, The Woman In Black was the movie that received the most complaints over its certificate, when »
Daniel Radcliffe has (more or less) done a good job shedding his Harry Potter image by appearing in some very dark (The Woman in Black) and very funny (A Young Doctor's Notebook) projects that take a lot of narrative and genre risks. And he looks to be continuing that trend, as seen in the first teaser for Alexandre Aja's (The Hills Have Eyes, High Tension) latest film Horns.Radcliffe plays a young man who is the main suspect in his girlfriend's murder. While protesting his innocence, he sprouts a pair of devil-like horns that cause those around him to display the most petty behaviour. Kurt Halfyard saw it at Tiff last year, and had a mixed reaction, though praised the performances. Personally, I'm always intrigued by...

Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, described the award-winning novelist as a "genius".
Cottrell Boyce recently let slip that he would be penning an episode of the sci-fi series, calling it "a pleasure" to write for Peter Capaldi's new Doctor.
Known for his work in children's fiction and for his collaborations with film director Michael Winterbottom, he also worked with Danny Boyle in scripting the well-received Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.
"Doctor Who is born anew in the mind of a genius!" said Moffat. "Frank's script is pure magic - and everything I could have hoped for from the genius behind the Olympics Opening Ceremony!"
Cottrell Boyce added: "I was flabbergasted to be asked to write an episode - partly because I've been so absorbed in the last few »
James Watkins, a British director who has gone on to stand behind the lens on the Hammer-produced horror film, The Woman in Black, made his directorial debut in 2008 with a film he also wrote, this tense and nasty little thriller called Eden Lake.
Jenny and Steve (played with conviction by Kelly Reilly and Michael Fassbender) take a trip for a romantic weekend away in the country in which Steve is planning to propose. They reach a secluded beach that is surrounded by forest land, and all seems peaceful and ideally as our loving couple set up a tent and lay back on their beach towels, watching the water drift calmly along. Their peace and quiet is quickly soiled as a group of »

After starring in the immensely successful Harry Potter franchise for nearly a decade, Daniel Radcliffe has taken on a number of much different genres, from indie horror (The Woman in Black) to period dramas (Kill Your Darlings) and even a romantic comedy (the upcoming What If). During a recent interview with Buzzfeed, the actor expressed his desire to delve into the superhero world, revealing he wants to play Robin alongside Ben Affleck's Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Here's what the actor had to say, when asked if he would consider joining another franchise.
"Batman. If they reboot that again I'll do that too. It's happening, isn't it? With Ben Affleck. I could be Robin, I'm perfect."
20th Century Fox has released the first synopsis for Frankenstein, director Paul McGuigan’s (Lucky Number Slevin) adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic gothic horror tale, which stars James McAvoy (X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe (The Woman in Black) as his servant Igor….
“James McAvoy is Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor in a unique, never-before-seen twist on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel. Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man—and the legend—we know today.”

Every summer a handful of plucky indie movies jump into the mainstream, thanks to filmgoers who want more nutritional value than that offered by the season’s popcorn pics. This year’s notable breakouts include Fox Searchlight’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” which opened in March, but has continued to ride a wave of critical plaudits through May and early June to book $157.6 million worldwide; and Roadside Attractions’ “Chef,” which has cooked up a tasty $7.5 million since opening in limited release last month. Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League says summer can be a good time for indie movies. “There are a lot of cinephiles who aren’t as excited about the next ‘X-Men,’ ” he says. But Fox Searchlight co-president Stephen Gilula warns that in a genre in which films must be unique and distinctive, it can be tough to stand out amid the season’s flood of movies. Despite the challenges, »
