Presidents' Day in Movie Culture: 'Hillary Gump,' Channing Tatum As Teddy Roosevelt, Spielberg's 'Obama' and More

16 February 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for Presidents' Day-related movie culture.   Brad Neeley's Nsfw animated short Washington is still hilarious after a thousand viewings:   The Impatient Lincoln takes one part of Steven Spielberg's Lincoln a long way:   This poster parodying Walking Tall and starring Channing Tatum as Teddy Roosevelt was made in response to the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter movie. I still want to see this one more.   Ronald Reagan may have been the first Hollywood actor to become president, but he wasn't the first movie star. We can count Dwight D. Eisenhower, who starred in the classic feature documentary The True...

Horror Films to Watch on President's Day

16 February 2015 12:50 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Every holiday deserves their share of horror films made for it, and President’s Day is no exception. The weird thing is that with all the President’s the United States has had over the past 239 years, only one of them seems to be important enough to be the center of a genre movie. Abraham Lincoln is hands down the most popular Chief who needs hailing. Look no further than the following gems to celebrate your Monday off from work or school with these blood-soaked classics. 

Let’s start with the most obvious. 2010’s indie slasher film President’s Day couldn’t be more perfect to mark the occasion. It revolves around the student council elections at Lincoln High. They turn into a matter of life and death when someone dressed as Abraham Lincoln starts hacking up the candidates. Made on a shoestring budget of $5,000, it doesn’t get any more grassroots gory than this. »

Filming on Timur Bekmambetov's Ben-Hur begins in Italy

2 February 2015 6:23 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Ready or not, Timur Bekmambetov (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Wanted) is jumping behind the camera once more to bring his vision to the sword and sandal epic. Okay, maybe in this case it would be more of a charriot and sandal epic. Ben-hur begins principal photography in Rome and Matera, Italy with a planned release date of February 26, 2016. If you're not familiar with the Charlton Heston classic, the story follows that of Judah Ben-Hur, a falsely accused nobleman who survives »

Fantastic Four: what we know about the reboot

27 January 2015 1:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We've now had our first glimpse at Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. Here’s everything we know about 2015’s most mysterious blockbuster.

We’ve known about the Fantastic Four reboot for quite some time, but that hasn’t stopped it being a mysterious project which, until this week, we knew next to nothing about.

We knew that the cast, director and groundwork of the original 2005 film, and its 2007 sequel Rise Of The Silver Surfer, had been firmly thrown out in favour of a new visual look, some reimagining of the source material and an altogether more modern take on the Marvel comics property. Beyond that, many facets of the film remained a mystery. 

Yet the reveal of the new trailer finally gave us a few more specifics. And here's what we know so far...

Even these basic facts are a little complicated. While the question »

Is The Gremlins Reboot On Hold?

19 January 2015 12:32 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As Hollywood continues cutting a swath through classics of yesterday and today, revving up their reboot machine to run on the pulverized remains of your childhood, we all dream of a brief respite from seeing our favorite films turned into not-so-favorite ones for fun and profit. Now we might have some hope for at least one terrifying childhood classic: the prospective reboot of Gremlins might be placed on indefinite hold.

The Gremlins reboot has been in a questionable area for years now. Steven Spielberg was of a mind to produce the film, with Chris Columbus taking on directorial duties instead of Joe Dante, the original director of the first two Gremlins. Seth Grahame-Smith, the screenwriter behind Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, was working on a new script that would bring us back to the world of Gremlins thirty years after the original. However, now Grahame-Smith seems to be »

New Trailer for Cyber-Slasher Horror Film Unfriended

19 January 2015 11:56 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

This April revenge comes online in the new cyber-slasher film Unfriended. MTV launched the new trailer for the horror film recently (see above). And now, thanks to Universal Studios, the film finally has an official release date set for April 17, 2015.

Unfriended, you may recall, was originally called Cybernatural as it made its way through the genre festival circuit. The death-by-Skype tale of a group of friends being stalked online on the anniversary of their clasmate’s death looks to breath new life into the found footage genre and give everyone a reason to stay offline in the near future. For my money, this looks intriguing enough to give a look as something that could be a bit more enjoyable than the latest offerings in the field (I’m looking at you endless Paranormal Activity films).

'Beetlejuice 2' Could Start Shooting Later This Year (Fingers Crossed)

19 January 2015 7:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Buzz about a potential "Beetlejuice 2" has been ongoing pretty much ever since the classic Tim Burton film first hit theaters in 1988. But now, with Burton confirming that a sequel is indeed in the works, it seems that the movie is actually, really, 100 percent happening -- and may begin production as early as this year.

Writer Seth Grahame-Smith ("Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"), who's co-writing the script and co-producing the flick with his "Dark Shadows" collaborator Burton, gave a status report on the project in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, and dished out a bunch of scoop about the follow-up.

First, Grahame-Smith confirmed what Burton had alluded to during a recent press tour for "Big Eyes": Winona Ryder will be back. And after publicly hinting that he'd be interested in the sequel, Michael Keaton is also on board, according to Grahame-Smith.

As for what the writer's script entails, »

MTV Posts the Skype-Terror ‘Unfriended’ Trailer

18 January 2015 8:55 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

MTV exclusively broke out the trailer for the latest horror film, Unfriended, via their YouTube page. Jo Satana reviewed the film back when it played under the title Cybernatural at Fantasia 2014 in Montreal.

If you can’t wait, read Jo’s review here.

This sort of reminds me of the other film, The Upper Footage, mixed in with with that segment from V/H/S/2. I’ve heard decent things about the flick so I’m looking forward to some cyber scares when it comes out April 17, 2015.

Synopsis

Ushering in a new era of horror, Universal PicturesUnfriended unfolds over a teenager’s computer screen as she and her friends are stalked by an unseen figure who seeks vengeance for a shaming video that led a vicious bully to kill herself a year earlier.

After Universal executives saw a test screening of Unfriended terrify a test audience, the studio acquired »

'Something Wicked' Remake Set in the 80s; Has Amblin Feel

16 January 2015 5:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Seth Grahame-Smith is a very busy man. Not only has he recently completed the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter novel sequel 'The Last American Vampire', he has a ton of screenplays on his plate that include Beetlejuice 2, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Stephen King's It. He is also adapting Ray Bradbury's novel Something Wicked This Way Comes, which was turned into a cult classic back in 1983. His version, though, is going to be slightly different.

Seth Grahame-Smith is setting his Something Wicked This Way Comes in the 80s, whereas the original was set in the 30s. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, he teased that the movie will feel like one of Steven Spielberg's earlier efforts, comparing it to E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and The Goonies.

"I can't help but think of this in sort of Amblin terms. Boys riding bikes, out on their own, exploring and »

'Beetlejuice' 2, 'Something Wicked,' 'Gremlins,' vampires galore: Seth Grahame-Smith's 2015 to-do list

16 January 2015 12:09 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In 2015, Seth Grahame-Smith is basically planning to rebuild your childhood. The Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies author is also a screenwriter, producer, and soon-to-be director whose slate of projects reads like a list of dream properties for anyone who grew up in the '80s or '90s (and still is a kid at heart). It's also terrifying for him, since he tends to think the same thing fans are: Don't screw these up. A Beetlejuice sequel, a Ray Bradbury remake, a handful of Stephen King projects, and a pair of Lego movies are just »

Why The Gremlins Reboot Might Not Happen Anymore

16 January 2015 11:27 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The creepy, mini-monster Gremlins have been on the radar in recent months due to news of a reboot in the works. However, much to our dismay, the latest reports are saying that a new film is probably not going to happen anymore. The announcement came from writer and producer Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), who has been leading the charge on the recently announced Gremlins reboot, and word is that it.s highly unlikely we.re going to see tv-loving Gizmo up on the big screen anytime soon. Grahame-Smith discussed the project with Entertainment Weekly and told them how he brought his treatment for the film to the original film.s executive producers, Steven Spielberg and Chris Columbus, but that was as far as it got. He said: "I think we ran out of steam. Everybody got busy doing other things. It.s something I would love to come »

First Trailer For Unfriended Plays Like A Skype Generation Slasher

14 January 2015 2:20 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal acquired their next big horror outing, Unfriended (previously called Cybernatural) after watching a test audience go bananas during a screening. There’s absolutely no better judge of a film’s quality than a public who haven’t paid to see it, and based off the first trailer, which was released today, those terrified moviegoers could have been onto something.

Storywise, the film picks up one year after the death of teenager Laura Barns, who killed herself after a mortifying video of her wound up going viral online. As you may have guessed, the anniversary of her death provokes a return to the web for her angsty spirit as she takes her revenge on her bullies. Via Skype. Yes, it makes no bones about the fact it panders those who probably don’t recall the pre-Internet days.

Developed by Wanted helmer Timur Bekmambetov, Unfriended was written and directed by newcomer »

New Unfriended Trailer & Poster

13 January 2015 8:48 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Online, your memories last forever… but so do your mistakes.” The deceptive safety of the screen between teens and the online world is shattered when a malevolent entity crashes a Skype session between six high school friends, forcing them to commit gruesome, self-inflicted acts of violence in front of the computer camera. Going viral gets vicious in Unfriended, as shown in the film’s newly released trailer and poster.

“While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. At first they think it’s a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends’ darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something out of this world, something that wants them dead.”

Directed by Levan Gabriadze off a screenplay by Nelson Greaves and produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Unfriended stars Shelley Hennig, Renee Olstead, »

Watch: Trailer for Universal's Cyber Thriller 'Unfriended'

13 January 2015 7:36 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The story behind Unfriended is that Universal execs saw a test screening and apparently it terrified a test audience, so they up and picked up the cyber thriller (previously titled Cybernatural) which unfolds over a teenager's computer screen as she and her friends are stalked by an unseen figure who seeks vengeance for a shaming video that led a vicious bully to kill herself a year earlier. Of course, this immediately reminds me of the short film Noah (watch that here), which also takes place entirely on someone's computer. I can only assume director Levan Gabriadze and writer Nelson Greaves saw the short and were inspired by it, though I'm not sure if they or producer Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) will be admitting that any time soon. Today the first trailer, poster and some pictures from the movie have come online. The pic hits theaters on April »

'Unfriended Trailer': A Killer Stalks Teen Prey Online

13 January 2015 7:14 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The dangers of social media are extolled in the first scary trailer for Unfriended, which hits theaters this spring from Blumhouse and Universal. The tale unfolds after a teen suicide is the result of a shaming video that goes viral. Universal bought the low budget thriller after watching a test audience become terrified by the horror experience.

While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. At first they think it's a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends' darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something out of this world, something that wants them dead. Told entirely from a young girl's computer desktop, Unfriended redefines 'found footage' for a new generation of teens.

The idea for Unfriended was developed and conceived by filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), and is directed by Levan Gabriadze. »

Rumblings of a Beetlejuice 2 have been felt for years now but the latest word from Tim Burton and Michael Keaton seem to suggest that something might actually be happening.

Will Arnett and Phil Lord talk The Lego Batman movie

9 January 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After the massive box-office success of last year’s The Lego Movie, which ended 2014 as the UK’s highest-grossing film, it was only a matter of time before sequels and spin-offs were going to happen, and sure enough a Lego Batman movie was announced back in October.

In recent days, star Will Arnett – who will reprise his role as the Caped Crusader in the spin-off – and The Lego Movie co-director Phil Lord have been speaking to MTV:

“No spoilers, but I will say I think the movie is really exciting because it’s about ‘Can Batman be happy?’,” said Lord. “‘Wah, I’m so rich and handsome, and women like me, and I’ve got a Maclaren,’. “‘Something about my parents!’”

Lord went on to tease the action from the film, saying: “The action in it is incredible. It’s impressive,” with Arnott tossing his two cents in as well, »

Will Arnett Promises 'Lego Batman Movie' Is 'Mind-Boggling' (Video)

9 January 2015 3:57 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last year's "The Lego Movie" wasn't just a total masterpiece and a box office smash - it was also the inadvertent beginning to an entire building blocks-based franchise. There's the "Ninjago" movie opening in the fall of 2016 and, at some point, a proper sequel to "The Lego Movie." But maybe the most exciting film in this crop is "The Lego Batman Movie," starring everyone's favorite moody Dark Knight (a breakout character from "The Lego Movie") that already has a prime May 26th, 2017 release date. MTV News caught up with "Lego Movie" directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord and Batman voice actor Will Arnett at the National Board of Review gala, and asked where, exactly, the film was.

When MTV reporter (and "Top Five" co-star) Josh Horowitz asked the team if different eras of Batman would be incorporated into the new film, Lord shot back after hesitating briefly. "No spoilers... But »
