Director Matt Bettinelli-Olpin (V/H/S) makes his feature directorial debut next year with the found-footage horror, Devil’s Due.
The latest in the low-budget sub-genre, Devil’s Due boasts an intriguing premise, following a young newlywed couple on their path to parenthood, begetting something very different to what they first think.
Ahead of its release next month, Fox has debuted a new trailer for our shores, teasing another great look at the horrors to come.
Devil’S Due is a chilling combination of Rosemary’s Baby and Paranormal Activity. This suspenseful horror film is shot as “found footage”, from a first person perspective of the lead character, Zach, combined with surveillance and hidden cameras.
Devil’S Due tells the story of Zach and Samantha, a newlywed couple who experience a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon and shortly after find themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. When Samantha starts showing odd behavior, »

It's been a huge week for superhero news, what with Warner Bros. announcing that Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) being cast in the role of Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman, and the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hitting the web today courtesy of Sony. Well, it's now 20th Century Fox's turn, with Bryan Singer looking to steal some of Spidey's thunder by revealing on Twitter that he's set to follow next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past with X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016.
Presumably, the film will follow the classic 1995/96 comic book storyline Age of Apocalypse, where time travel (yes, again) creates an alternate timeline where the X-Men battle to save the world from Apocalypse, an immortal 5000-year-old mutant. At this point, it's unknown whether the film will revolve around the X-Men: First Class cast or Singer's original team of X-Men, although if it is going to adopt an alternate timeline, »

2014 is the Year of the Superteam. There’s Marvel’s goofball space-squadron Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s an X-Men movie starring two or three or seven different groups of X-Men. Captain America’s on furlough from The Avengers, but in The Winter Soldier he’s hanging out with a B-team of Capsters like Black Widow and Falcon. That makes The Amazing Spider-Man 2 an outlier. The second chapter of Marc Webb’s reboot saga once again focuses on the travails of a teenaged Peter Parker, still dating Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy and still trying to solve the mystery of his father. »

Is that Electro, the Rhino, Doctor Octopus, And a young Green Goblin we see? The first trailer for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ debuted on Dec. 5, and the shocking number of new villains makes it quite clear that Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone might have a pretty tough go of it this second time around.
When we last left Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) in the summer of 2012, Spidey had been banned from seeing his newly father-less young girlfriend. But the new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 reveals that the couple is back and better than ever — that is, until the villain who murders her in the comics rears his ugly head. Will Gwen bite it in Spider-Man 2? Check out the trailer below!
‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Trailer: Will The Green Goblin Kill Gwen?

There has been a lot of talk over the last few days since the release of the new poster for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which featured Rhino (Paul Giamatti), Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Green Goblin. And one of those topics has been which member of the Osborn family will be taking on the role of Spider-Man's most famous adversary.
Chris Cooper (The Muppets) will be taking on the role of Norman Osborn while Dane DaHann (Chronicle) will be playing his son Harry. Thanks to @Tupacca via Twitter (which he sent to El Mayimbe of Latino Review), we now have a clearer image of Green Goblin, who is tucked away far at the back.

The first look at Daniel Radcliffe as Igor in 20th Century Fox's next stab at the classic tale of Frankenstein has arrived via The Sun, and we have the eye candy right here. Look for the flick in theatres on January 6, 2015.
Paul McGuigan is at the helm of this revisionist take on Mary Shelley's masterpiece. Based on a script by Max Landis (Chronicle), this adaptation of Shelley's novel of the same name puts a more sci-fi spin on the classic story about a creature produced through a scientific experiment.
More as it comes.

The latest cinematic re-interpretation of the sci-fi/horror classic novel is headlined by former Harry Potter Daniel Radcliffe as Igor and young Professor X (i.e. award-winner James McAvoy) as Victor Von Frankenstein, alongside Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey) as the object of Igor’s affection. Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis penned the script, with Paul McGuigan (Sherlock) set to direct. In theaters on January 16, 2015. »
We’ve just received our first look at Daniel Radcliffe (The Harry Potter Series) as Igor from an upcoming Frankenstein adaptation, directed by Paul McCuigan (Lucky Number Slevin). Igor is the lab assistant of Dr. Victor von Frankenstein, who creates a monster using the reanimated body parts of several dead men. The doctor will be played by James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class).
Here’s our glimpse of Radcliffe in character.
Notable here is that they’re not going for the hobbled-over hunchback of previous incarnations. The character of Dr. Frankenstein’s assistant has taken several forms in the cinematic adaptations of Mary Shelley’s novel. The character’s name has even changed several times, with Igor being the name that stayed in the pop culture lexicon.

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein has seen a multitude of adaptations since it first hit the shelves all the way back in 1818. It has spawned sequels, retellings, stage adaptations and numerous films, most of which have very little to do with the original novel. Paul McGuigan’s version of the Frankenstein story looks to be no different, adapting characters who never appear in the original novel into a story likely to be a bit different from the Frankenstein tales of the past.
The first image of Daniel Radcliffe as the lead character Igor has surfaced from the Frankenstein set, but it does not tell us much about the film. Radcliffe looks suitably early 19th Century in a purple suit and cravat, a far cry from his boy wizard days. If the film keeps to usual characterizations of Igor, he’ll be a bit of a sad figure, tortured and bullied by »

What makes this adaptation all the more interesting is its leading cast, with James McAvoy playing Victor Von Frankenstein, Daniel Radcliffe starring as his assistant Igor, and Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown Findlay taking the female lead as Lorelei, a beautiful circus performer who forms a close bond with Igor.
Interestingly, Fox recently pushed the release date out of the expected Halloween 2014 window into early 2015. But the January slot is becoming more and more a place for horror films to make a name for themselves, and with the studio simultaneously dating David Fincher’s Gone Girl for October next year, it’s understandable that they’d want to push Frankenstein a little further down the line. Production is now getting underway, and with »

If we trust Sony's viral site for The Daily Bugle, the 2014 sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may very well contain every villain written into Spider-Man folk lore. A new article concerning a bank robbery hints at what could be an appearance by "Shocker," which would see the villain joining the confirmed Electro, The Rhino and Green Goblin and the rumoured (deep breath) Vulture, Black Cat and Carnage. Check out the latest Bugle article here....

The NYPD are the city’s greatest heroes, but sometimes even heroes are left scratching their heads. For instance, when $200,000 goes missing from the armored vault at G.K. Mason Bank.
Detective Stan Carter of the NYPD Major Crimes Unit was on scene to comment, stating, ”There’s still a lot we don’t know, but it looks like some kind of sustained vibration literally shook the door off its hinges »

If you've been keeping track of Sony's upcoming superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, then you'll know that Andrew Garfield's wall-crawler is going to have his hands full when he returns for the second instalment of the rebooted series as the studio looks to expand its Spider-Man universe by introducing a host of villains. Jamie Foxx (White House Down) and Paul Giamatti (Saving Mr. Banks) are confirmed to play Electro and The Rhino respectively, while there's also talk of the likes of The Vulture, Black Cat and even Carnage making an appearance. And that's before we get to Peter Parker's arch-nemesis, with American Beauty star Chris Cooper set to portray Norman Osborn, whose comic book alter-ego is of course the Green Goblin. Cooper has been talking to MTV about his role in the sequel, reiterating that he'll be taking more of a back seat before rising to prominence in »

He quickly burst onto the scene as a YouTube sensation with his accurate, low-budget and hilarious "The Death of Superman" and "Drunk Comic Book History: The Robins" videos. In 2012, he made his professional screenwriting debut with Chronicle. It introduced the talented 28-year-old screenwriter to the mainstream audience and cemented him as a writer on the rise in Hollywood. Now, Max Landis is ready to embark upon a new chapter in his life. In April, filming will begin on American Ultra. A film that Max Landis penned about Mike, an unmotivated stoner (Jesse Eisenberg) living in a small, sleepy town with his girlfriend (Kristen Stewart). When Mike's past catches up to him, a government organization is hot on their tail with plans of wiping Mike out. Then there's this new Frankenstein movie that he wrote starring James McAvoy ("X-Men: Days of Future Past") as the doctor »
Since their inception 23 years ago, Ifp’s Gotham Independent Film Awards have experienced their share of growing pains and gains. For years, the low-key kudofest, which takes place at the outset of awards season, was truly independent and unconcerned about their impact on the Academy Awards.
In 2005, categories for Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You and ensemble were added to the Gothams’ parade of accolades, designed to celebrate films and performances overlooked by Oscar. But this year, those categories have been scrapped and replaced with more traditional actor and actress kudos.
According to Ifp exec director Joana Vicente and senior director of programming Milton Tabbot, the redesign wasn’t meant to align with the Oscars. Instead a “changing distribution landscape” and difficulty meeting the ensemble category criteria led to a shift toward standard awards honoring five thesps per gender.
“Independent film is where a lot of amazing actors get great, »

All right movie geeks, it’s true-life movie origin story time. I’m referring to a sort of pre-greatness biography flick. Of course, when the origin word is brought up you may first think of the comic book heroes that populate multiplexes during the warmer months (well, now a certain Asgardian is establishing a Fall beach head). Said characters usually begin their film or comic series with the story of what happened before they donned cape and mask. And Superman even has a long-running spin-off set in his own past, as Superboy. The movies have done the same thing with real folks many times over the years. There’s Young Mr. Lincoln and Young Tom Edison to Butch And Sundance: The Early Years to Nowhere Boy (about a pre-”fab four” John Lennon). The new film Kill Your Darlings takes us to the college years of famed beat poet Allan Ginsberg of later “Howl” fame. »

We'd previously heard from director Marc Webb that the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would be attached to the theatrical release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on December 13th, but it's now been revealed via Sony's Spider-Man Facebook page that we'll actually be getting it slightly earlier, with the trailer now set to hit on December 5th.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sees Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker / Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) and Sally Field (Aunt May) returning to the cast alongside franchise newcomers Jamie Foxx (White House Down) as Electro, Paul Giamatti (Saving Mr. Banks) as The Rhino, Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) as Harry Osborn, Chris Cooper (The Muppets) as Norman Osborn and Colm Feore (Thor), Felicity Jones (Like Crazy), Sarah Gadon (Cosmopolis) and B.J. Novak (The Office) in as-yet-unrevealed roles.

"Working with Larry has been one of the most surreal joys of my life. We’ve had such a lot of fun working together. He’s an incredible guy and an inspiring and spectacular writer.”
Abrams also spoke about his hesitancy to shoot the film in London:
"It's something that I've always intended to do. But I'm torn because I have done everything I can to keep the production of my projects in Los Angeles. Yet, the opportunity to work with UK crews is something that has always been a dream of mine.
Of course, that dream existed prior to me being married and having a family, so the reality of making a movie like that for any period of »
