First Trailer For Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter Is Haunting and Beautiful

11 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I have yet to see Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter but I'm counting the days until I get the opportunity.  The new film from writing/directing team David and Nathan Zellner (Kid Thing) is a riff on a popular urban legend about a girl who believes Fargo is a true story and goes searching for the money Steve Buscemi's character buried near the end of that movie.  Of course the legend isn't true (the young woman who died in real life wasn't searching for the money), but the Zellners used it as a springboard for a film that looks like a fantastic examination of loneliness and obsession. Hit the jump to check out the Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter trailer.  The film stars Rinko Kikuchi, Nobuyuki Katsube, Shirley Venard, David Zellner, & Nathan Zellner.  The score by The Octopus Project won a special jury award at Sundance.  It hits select theaters on March 13th, »

Rinko Kikuchi Looks for Loot in 'Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter' Trailer

14 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After landing a couple of Indie Spirit Award nominations for director David Zellner and star Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim, Cloud Atlas), the indie drama Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter is coming to theaters in the spring, and the teaser trailer has arrived. Based on a true story, the film follows a woman who sets out on a journey to retrieve the briefcase full of money that was buried in the frozen ground in the Coen Brothers comedy Fargo. Due to the disclaimer at the beginning of the film calling it a true story (it's not), she's driven to find this treasure. It's quite a unique premise, and it looks like a real gem. Watch it! Here's the teaser trailer for David Zellner's Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, originally from Yahoo: Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter is directed by David Zellner (Kid Thing, Goliath), who co-wrote the script with his brother Nathan Zellner »

Title and Casting Details on the Cancelled Ghostbusters 3 Project

19 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Before Paul Feig came around to reboot the Ghostbusters franchise for a new generation and launch a whole new franchise, there was a direct sequel to the original films that was in development for years. That project will never happen at this point, but some details have surfaced on what that sequel would have entailed.

Screenwriter Etan Cohen (Men In Black 3) completed a second Ghostbusters 3 draft. The film's producer, Ivan Reitman, who was attached to direct the film at the time, sent an email to Sony Pictures Chairman Amy Pascal that contained the second draft, and it reveals the title of the movie and his plan for the cast.

There's not much revealed about the plot, but it would have centered on Ray Stanz (Dan Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis), and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) passing the franchise off to a younger generation of Ghostbusters. Sadly, a month after this email was sent, »

Forever episode 11 review: Skinny Dipper

10 December 2014 1:23 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Henry takes the plunge before Forever goes on a well-earned mid-season hiatus. Here's Billy's review of Skinny Dipper...

This review contains spoilers.

1.11 Skinny Dipper

Due to the writing credits on this story, I’d anticipated that it would be good, but it actually exceeded those expectations in most respects.

But before I talk about what I liked, I’ll warn you that I’m also going to discuss the identity of ‘Adam’. So if you’ve not seen this episode, I’d watch it before reading on.

Skinny Dipper dovetails directly into the final events of The Man In The Killer Suit when Henry is abducted by ‘Adam’ in yellow cab. Actually, it goes back a little to explain how he got the cab, and what unfortunate things happened to the driver. Adam shoots himself in the head, and disappears, and Henry drowns in the cab, to reappear elsewhere in the same river. »

New Story Details for 'Pacific Rim 2' emerge; Charlie Day & Burn Gorman to Return

26 November 2014 10:57 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

While promoting the release of the first season of The Strain, Guillermo Del Toro slipped new details about the upcoming Pacific Rim 2. We learned in the past that the second film was going to be different from the first and now we have some tidbits about it.

This is what Del Toro said about the upcoming Kaiju sequel:

“It’s a few years after the first one.  It’s not an immediate follow-up.  It is the world having been freed of Kaiju, what happens to the world after – what happens to the Jaeger technology once the Kaiju are not a threat.  It’s quite a jump.”

It seems that the world is having a period of peace before a new Kaiju attack takes place. It’ll be interesting to see how the world has changed without Kaiju presence. Del Toro also confirmed that Charlie Day and Burn Gorman who »

Day, Gorman Set For "Pacific Rim 2"

26 November 2014 9:59 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has offered some brief updates on two high profile projects which he's involved with - the "Pacific Rim" sequel, and his "Justice League Dark" project which deals with the supernatural heroes of the DC Comics universe.

First up, he confirms that both Charlie Day (Dr. Newton Geisler) and Burn Gorman (Gottlieb) will both reprise their roles from the first "Pacific Rim" in the upcoming sequel. He also says the action takes place a few years after the first movie, a time in which the world has now moved on from the Kaiju monster threat, telling Collider:

"It's a few years after the first one. It's not an immediate follow-up. It is the world having been freed of Kaiju, what happens to the world after - what happens to the Jaeger technology once the Kaiju are not a threat. It's quite a jump. It's quite a different movie from the first one. »

Guillermo Del Toro gives us Pacific Rim 2 plot details

26 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – spoilers for Pacific Rim below…

Having made $411 million worldwide at the box office, it was inevitable that a sequel for Pacific Rim would be in the works, despite the rather definitive editing. So, just how will Guillermo Del Toro continue the story?

In an interview with Collider, Del Toro has given us some insight in what we can expect from Pacific Rim 2, “It’s a few years after the first one,” he said. “It’s not an immediate follow-up. It’s the world having been freed of Kaiju, what happens to the world after – what happens to the Jaeger technology once the Kaiju are not a threat. It’s quite a jump.”

“It’s quite a different movie from the first one,” he adds. “But I think that two of our main characters like in the first one are Burn [Gorman] and Charlie [Day]. They are really, really – I mean, »
