The Best B-Movies of the 21st Century

26 May 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The constant big-budget movie releases with their A-list stars, state of the art technology, and expensive advertising campaigns can make it easy to forget that most of the movie industry just doesn’t have that kind of money. Most filmmakers are working with limited resources, yet producing films that are in many cases better than those big money movies. Other filmmakers work with even less, producing films that, in the end, are often relegated to the more obscure cable channels and the bargain bin at Amazon. B-movies have been called Hollywood’s stepchild, but what they really are is its life blood.

Only a few of these films make money, but they have a greater value than simply being good for business: they are good for filmmaking. With little money, no stars, scripts that are disjointed, and often featuring poor production values, the B-movie is the primordial ooze from which new talent and ideas crawl. »

Viola Davis will play Harriet Tubman in HBO movie from 'Entourage' producer

27 April 2015 5:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The life of Harriet Tubman has been screaming for the feature film treatment for ages. Outside of — what, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter?" — there's never really been a movie depiction of the famed abolitionist. Well, thanks to HBO and Amblin, that's all about to change. And Viola Davis is going to knock this out of the park. The Oscar-nominated star of "Doubt" and "The Help" will star in the TV film, based on the Kate Clifford Larson biography "Bound for the Promised Land. Writer Kirk Ellis ("John Adams," also at HBO) will pen the script and Doug Ellin ("Entourage") will produce. Two other projects about the Underground Railroad have also been in the works: Wgn's miniseries "Undeground" (produced by Akiva Goldsman) and NBC's "Freedom Run" miniseries (produced by Stevie Wonder). So obviously something is in the water. I take from all of this a fantastic role for Davis, who has popped »

Bloodsucking Bastards: The office-set horror comedy Bloodsucking Bastards will screen at the Texas Frightmare Weekend on May 2nd at 8pm:

Press Release -- "An Office Space meets Shaun of the Dead action-packed horror comedy, Bloodsucking Bastards stars Fran Kranz as Evan Sanders, a low-level, dutiful employee stuck in a boring job at a soul-killing every corporation. Evan’s the kind of guy who does all the work and gets none of the credit, but at least he gets to spend his days with his beautiful co-worker/girlfriend Amanda (Emma Fitzpatrick) and his slacker best friend Tim (Joey Kern).

Unfortunately, it all falls apart in one fell swoop when Amanda breaks up with him and Evan’s boss Ted (Joel Murray) hands »

Dominic Cooper to Star as Jesse Custer in AMC’s Preacher Series Pilot

17 April 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With the white collar around his neck, you might think he's a man who follows God's word, but when he's melded with the otherworldly entity known as Genesis and God abandons his throne, Jesse focuses his attention on hunting down the big guy from upstairs. Since its first publication run from 1995 – 2000, readers have embraced the dark humor, thought-provoking writing, and visceral violence of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Preacher comic book series, and with AMC's Preacher series pilot, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin are looking to bring that paneled page magic to the small screen. Following the casting of numerous key supporting characters, the lead role of Jesse Custer has been cast.

Seth Rogen announced via Twitter today that Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Dracula Untold) has been cast in the lead role of Jesse Custer in AMC's Preacher series pilot. »

Gremlins reboot gets screenwriter, Chris Columbus and Steven Spielberg to produce

9 April 2015 12:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. has hired a new screenwriter to pen the reboot to classic 1980’s horror-comedy Gremlins.

Carl Ellsworth, who has written the upcoming Goosebumps film, is a consistent writer in Hollywood and has penned the scripts for films such as Disturbia and the remake to The Last House on the Left. He will work from a previous draft by Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).

A mooted remake/reboot of Gremlins has been mooted for many years, with many rumours at one point or another pointing to a sequel rather than a remake, but now it seems Warner’s are set on refreshing the franchise which has laid dormant since 1990’s Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

The original screenwriter of Gremlins, Chris Columbus, was previously in talks to direct but will know just produce the film, alongside the original film’s executive producer Steven Spielberg.

Five Nights At Freddy’S Getting a Film Adaptation to Haunt Your Dreams

8 April 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Five Nights at Freddy’s is the latest interactive horror sensation, so naturally Hollywood wants to send it to the big screen. THR reports that producers Roy Lee (Dark Water), Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and David Katzenberg (the It remake) are teaming up produce the video game adaptation. For those who haven’t played the game, THR breaks it down pretty well: The game takes place in Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a darker version of Chuck-e-Cheese, where an animatronic animal band performs kiddy songs by day, and goes on murderous rampages by night. The goal of the game is survive a night locked inside, knowing that a furry death machine might jump out of the dark at any moment. The challenge of the game is that you have to choose between watching the monitors to see how the animatronic terrors are moving or using power to keep the door locked. »

Five Nights At Freddy's Coming To The Big Screen

8 April 2015 3:50 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It may have only been released in August of last year, but survival horror game Five Nights at Freddy's has racked up quite the fan base, praising it's simplistic design, non traditional storytelling, and ability to wring genuine paranoia and scares from a genre that has seriously gone down hill as of late. It has also given way to countless Let's Play videos, two sequels (again, the first one was only released last Summer), and now, the big screen beckons with Warner Bros. picking up the rights for a feature adaption, with Roy Lee (The Ring, the upcoming Poltergeist remake), Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), and David Katzenberg (the soon to be shooting remake of Stephen King's It) in line to produce. The game puts you into the shoes of the night security guard at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, a darker version of Chuck E. Cheese, and the aim is »

‘Five Nights At Freddy’s’ Is Getting A Movie

7 April 2015 9:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Five Nights At Freddy’S has been one of the biggest successes of independent gaming. The horror game sees players take on the role of a security guard at a children’s themed restaurant. While there they must check security footage and protect themselves from evil animatronics that wish to turn the player into one of their own kind. With a simple set-up, not much movement, increasing sense of dread, and insane jump scares, the game has provided players with endless hours of enjoyment as they force friends to play and record their reactions.

Now, as with all great successes, the concept is heading to Hollywood under the watchful eye of Warner Bros. Producing the effort will be Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, and David Katzenberg. Lee has produced hit animated films such as How To Train Your Dragon 2 and The Lego Movie, while his involvement with horror has spanned »

SXSW 2015 Exclusive: Levan Gabriadze, Nelson Greaves and Jason Blum on Unfriended

20 March 2015 12:27 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

On the first night of the 2015 SXSW Film Festival, Levan Gabriadze’s Unfriended premiered  in front of a packed audience. Daily Dead had the opportunity to catch up with Gabriadze as well as screenwriter Nelson Greaves and producer Jason Blum the following day to talk about the film and the horrific realities of cyberbullying.

I’d love to start off talking about the premise behind Unfriended because when you look at where the horror genre is at these days, not many films are tackling the concept of bullying straight on like you do here or even fully exploring the dangers of social media, or being too ‘connected’ in this world. What inspired you to take on these issues then?

Levan Gabriadze: A lot of this came from Timur (Bekmambetov, Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) originally because he spends so much time doing business on Skype. Because he lives in »

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. »

Astro Boy to take on Hollywood

4 February 2015 1:22 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

.

.

Superhero robot Astro Boy has been fighting evil in Japanese anime, TV series and one animated feature for more than 60 years- but can he take on Hollywood?

Animal Logic CEO Zareh Nalbandian is betting he can after securing the rights to shoot a live-action, sci-fi superhero movie based on the character.

Nalbandian and his Us agent CAA have circulated an outline of the project and he says there is strong interest from writers in the Us and Australia.

He aims to shoot the film in Australia after Animal Logic completes the next two movies in the Lego franchise, Ninjago, directed by Charlie Bean and based on the Cartoon Network animated series of the same name, for release in 2016; and The Lego Batman Movie, which will feature the character voiced in the original by Will Arnett, directed by Chris McKay, and is slated for 2017.

Nalbandian has long been a fan of Astro Boy, »
