‘Phoenix Forgotten’ Trailer: It’s ‘The Blair Witch Project’, But With UFOs
We’ve seen a handful of sci-fi movies take the found footage approach: Cloverfield, Europa Report, Apollo 18, the list goes on. I thought we might have reached “peak found footage” a few years ago, but a new trailer for a film called Phoenix Forgotten indicates that the trend hasn’t completely vanished. What has disappeared, however, are […]

Exclusive: Ian McShane Steps Into A Fight In Clip From ‘The Hollow Point’

  • The Playlist
As Ian McShane fans patiently await word on the rumored “Deadwood” movie, the actor will be giving them plenty to savor until that project (hopefully) arrives, including a role in the upcoming “American Gods.” But McShane devotees shouldn’t let the indie movie “The Hollow Point” slide off their radar as it serves up a gritty-looking thriller.

Directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego (“Apollo 18,” “Open Grave“) and co-starring Patrick Wilson, John Leguizamo, James Belushi, and Lynn Collins, the story is set in the back roads of a border town, where a botched Mexican-cartel arms deal leaves several dead and a bag of money missing.

The Hollow Point Review [Monster Fest 2016]

Given all the political chatter about border control in this year’s *historic* Us presidential election, The Hollow Point stays savagely on-topic. Granted, most American citizens aren’t involved with ammo-running across country lines, but cartels are no joke – and neither is Gonzalo López-Gallego’s country-fried thriller. Social struggles tie weapons smuggling to impoverished Southern entrepreneurs, inviting boogeymen of Mexican descent to punish those who choose greed over safety. It’s a western standoff brought upon by evil, wicked men, all in the name of brutal consequence. Thugs living by a corrupt code, who we join just as bullet-slinging chickens come home to roost.

Patrick Wilson stars as the local sheriff of some forgotten U.S./Mexico border town, whose citizens are about to pay for a cartel deal gone wrong. Ken Mercey (David H. Stevens) was supposed to supply his contact with a surplus of ammunition, but his brother

Ian McShane & Patrick Wilson Face Hell On The Border In First Trailer ‘The Hollow Point’

  • The Playlist
This election season is certainly making movies set along the U.S./Mexico border resonate a little more loudly. Later this month, Gael Garcia Bernal will fight for his life in “Desierto,” and toward the end of the year, there will be more thrills along the line where Donald Trump wants to build a wall in “The Hollow Point.”

As ‘Blair Witch’ Flops, Is the Found-Footage Horror Film Over?

As ‘Blair Witch’ Flops, Is the Found-Footage Horror Film Over?
Now that “Blair Witch,” the abysmal shaky-cam horror sequel that no one was waiting for, has come and bombed, you might be tempted to say that a certain genre is ready to lay down and die. But you’d be wrong. In the megaplex, of course, the found-footage horror film enjoyed a quick rise, a brief reign, and (now) a spectacular fall. It was launched, in 1999, with “The Blair Witch Project,” which in addition to being a highly original and — yes — unsettling movie became a fascinating phenomenon in two ways. First off, its success was beyond staggering, and not just because its $140 million domestic gross gave it the greatest budget-to-profit ratio of any movie ever made. Budget aside, “The Blair Witch Project” put more butts in seats than “Pulp Fiction” did. Clearly, that had something to do with the dread and intrigue generated by the uniquely austere thriller up onscreen,

‘Ben-Hur’ Review: Jesus Dies For Our Cinema Sins In This Redeemably Garish Biblical Epic

‘Ben-Hur’ Review: Jesus Dies For Our Cinema Sins In This Redeemably Garish Biblical Epic
The good news is that the story of Ben-Hur is so rock solid that not even the director of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” can screw it up completely. The sixth feature-length film or miniseries to be adapted from Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel, “Ben-Hur: A Tale of The Christ,” Timur Bekmambetov’s take on the religious epic inevitably lacks the grandeur of Fred Niblo’s 1925 silent or the girth of William Wyler’s 1959 Oscar-hoarding classic. After all, this is 2016 (more specifically, the summer of 2016), a time when movies about Jesus are pitched only to the converted, and blockbusters can only be longer than 120 minutes if they end with two iconic superheroes fighting each other to a stalemate.

But if this new “Ben-Hur” was only provided with a fraction of the potential that’s been afforded to its predecessors, it sometimes finds the strength to reach out and scrape against its frustratingly low ceiling.

'Underworld 5' Casts 'Outlander' Star in Key Role
Now that Screen Gems' Underworld 5 has brought back franchise star Kate Beckinsale to reprise her role as the vampire Selene, the studio is starting to round out the supporting cast. Deadline reports that Outlander star Tobias Menzies has signed on to play a new Lycan leader named Marius. Theo James is also confirmed to star, reprising his role as David from 2012's Underworld Awakening.

The project reunites Tobias Menzies with director Anna Foerster, who is making her feature directorial debut with Underworld 5. The filmmaker directed the controversial Outlander season finale, where Tobias Menzies' character Frank Randall tortured and sexually assaulted Sam Heughan's Jamie Fraser. Deadline reports that this deal wasn't easy to make, but Outlander is a Sony-produced show, and since Screen Gems is a sister company to the studio, they most likely facilitated the deal.

'Last Witch Hunter' Trailer #2 Sends Vin Diesel to War
Coming off the first teaser that debuted back in April, Lionsgate has unveiled the brand new trailer for The Last Witch Hunter, arriving in theaters October 23. After starring in the worldwide blockbuster Furious 7, Vin Diesel is trying to launch another franchise with this action-adventure, which already has a sequel in the works, months before the original hits theaters.

'Underworld 5' Gets Kate Beckinsale Back as Selene!
Actress Kate Beckinsale has finalized a deal to return as the vampire Selene in Lakeshore Entertainment and Screen Gems' new Underworld 5. We last reported on the Underworld 5 back in September, when Underworld Awakening star Theo James signed on to reprise his role as David, although, at the time, it wasn't believed that Kate Beckinsale would be back as Selene. Our earlier report also revealed that the production was seeking two actresses to play brand new female characters.

The sequel has also brought on director Anna Foerster, who will make her feature debut. She previously served as a second unit director for Roland Emmerich's The Day After Tomorrow and 2012, and she also served as his director of photography on 2013's White House Down. She has also directed episodes of Starz's Outlander and CBS' Madam Secretary.

'The Pyramid' Movie Review

Reviewed by Shannon Hilson

MoreHorror.com

I’ve been a sucker for a good tomb raiding adventure film ever since I first fell in love with the Indiana Jones movies as a kid. The same goes for absolutely anything to do with ancient Egypt or the pyramids, so naturally I was excited about a chance to check out The Pyramid.

Written by Daniel Meersand and Nick Simon, The Pyramid is directed by Gregory Levasseur (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D). It makes use of the found footage storytelling device to depict the adventures of father and daughter archaeologists Miles Holden (Denis O’Hare) and Nora Holden (Ashley Hinshaw) as they explore a mysterious three-sided Giza pyramid (most of the pyramids of Giza have four sides) with their team during the Egyptian protests of 2013. At first, they rely on camera-equipped, remote-controlled robot “Shorty” to show them what’s what inside the pyramid.

Box Office Report: American Sniper Breaks Super Bowl Record

It was another explosive weekend for American Sniper, which broke the record for the biggest Super Bowl weekend at the box office in its third week of wide release. Earning an estimated $31.9 million, Clint Eastwood’s Oscar-nominated drama continued to steamroll over the competition, including several wide releases that flopped or fizzled this weekend. Even with a strong take, the film dipped a bigger-than-expected 51% in its third frame, a bit worrying given the strong 28% hold that American Sniper has last week.

With an astounding $248.9 million take so far, American Sniper is already the fifth-highest grossing R-rated film of all-time. It is also a few days away from surpassing The Hangover Part II ($254.5 million), which also starred Bradley Cooper, to take fourth place on that chart. (Fun fact: Three of the five highest-grossing R-rated movies of all time in North America have Cooper in the lead role.) Beyond the Super Bowl record,
