Does length matter? (In a game, that is)
Okay, stop sniggering. We’re better than that. I was, of course, referring to the recent brouhaha surrounding PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886 and its relatively short running time. For the uninitiated, mere days before the game launched to collective sighs around the globe, rumours hit the web that the game could be completed in as little as five hours. Gaming sites melted down, Internet arguments kicked off; it was, for lack of a better term, just another molehill turned mountain within the gaming industry… read the full article.

Get ready stateside filmgoers, because the “phoners” (aka “crazies”) are coming to the Us. Stephen King fans know that the master of macabre doesn’t like using cell phones. His 2006 novel, Cell, is a cautionary tale about what can go wrong by pressing portable phones to our ears and keeping them close at hand in our pockets, and its unflinching subject matter contains flocks of murderous lunatics that would be right at home in Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later, George A. Romero’s The Crazies, or Simon Clark’s Blood Crazy.
We knew this unique King novel was getting the adaptation treatment, with King co-writing the screenplay and John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson in the lead roles, but we’re now one big step closer to seeing it on the silver screen, as Clarius Entertainment has acquired the Us rights to the movie.

From toilet-based scares to nasty encounters in the shower, here's a selection of 17 memorable moments of terror in the bathroom...
Nb: the following contains potential spoilers and scenes which may be considered Nsfw.
The scariest moments in horror are often the most intimate - this is why knives are a far nastier, button-pushing instrument of death than the gun. As the Joker famously put it in The Dark Knight, “You can savour all those little emotions...”
Intimacy may be the key to understanding why, in horror films, so many dreadful things tend to happen in bathrooms. The bathroom is often where we go to be by ourselves - either to answer the call of nature, brush our teeth, or simply relax in the bath after a hectic day at work. Equally, the water closet also sees us at our most vulnerable: naked, or at least with our trousers down, and »
One of the key reasons as to why the first trailer for Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World proved to be so effective is the fact that the genetically-modified dinosaur turned out to be rather camera shy. Much like Steven Spielberg’s approach with Jaws, the park’s main attraction has been kept in the dark, though today we’ve learned more about the deadly hybrid, which is now known as the Indominus Rex — the “Fierce or Untameable King.”
Bigger, louder and with more teeth, the 40-foot-long predator is, for all intents and purposes, a force to be reckoned with. And to ramp up excitement for its summer tentpole, Universal released a detailed description of the dino via Jurassic World‘s official site.
We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered. »

Kept almost totally off screen in the trailers so far, Jurassic World’s big addition – and we do mean big – to the dino family has now been revealed. Well, sort of. Some new imagery on the official site for the film offers some details on the giant creature known as Indominus Rex. Planned as the big new attraction at the sprawling dino theme park (because clearly Raptors, T-Rexes and huge aquatic beasts have become passé), the new beast is a genetic hybrid bred to be even more savage and imposing than the current residents. Which, as you might guess, doesn’t exactly lead to good things when it breaks loose. Other things breaking loose? Hell, customers’ bladder control, law and order...Here’s the description from the official site for the dinosaur whose name means Fierce or Untameable King and who appears destined to live up to that: “We set »
Universal Pictures has updated their "Jurassic World" official site to include new details regarding the still under wraps, 'genetically modified hybrid' dinosaur - the Indominus Rex. The creature is 40 feet in length and the name means 'Fierce or Untamable King'. Here's the bio description:
"We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered.
At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed.
Indominus' roar is estimated to reach 140-160db—the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 Mph while confined to its enclosure. »

According to kdramastars and their sources, some new, very interesting spoilers have popped up for the upcoming "Jurassic World" action/thriller flick. It turns out that the main hybrid dinosaur has been given a new name. It's been changed from Diabolus Rex or D-Rex to Indominus Rex. This dinosaur will be a highly intelligent animal and will kill anything that moves. The new name for the dinosaur means Untamable or Fierce King. It will be a crossbreed of the T-Rex, Velociraptor, cuttlefish, and a death adder. The Indominus Rex will have human genes spliced into its DNA, most likely, giving it human intelligence. Also the director ,Colin Trevorrow, recently had the following to say about the movie: "There are dinosaurs and there's the other-there's this thing that is not one of them, that is not of them. There's a lot of bold new ideas in the movie and I'm »
As the first trailer for "Jurassic World" indicated, the major creature for the new entry will be a genetically modified hybrid dinosaur - one which we've yet to see the features of. It does have a name though, one that the publicity materials for the film have yet to reveal.
A while back, leaked photos of a tie-in Lego Set for the movie called it a Diablous Rex (D-Rex). That now seems to have changed as SciFied reports that an updated toy list has indicated the creature's new name is Indominus Rex (I-Rex). That translates to 'Untamable King'.
The updated list of tie-in toys includes T-Rex, Velociraptor, Mosasaur, Ankylosaurus, and Triceratops figures.
In other tie-in merchandising news, Mercedes-Benz has confirmed its partnership with Universal Pictures on the film and says Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire character will be driving the new high-performance Gle 63 Amg Coupe in the movie. »

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival has unveiled its 2015 line-up which includes films representing 54 countries, 23 world premieres and 53 U.S. premieres. The U.S. premiere of Niki Caro’s McFarland USA will close out the 30th fest. Based on the 1987 true story and starring Kevin Costner and Maria Bello, the film follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California’s farm-rich Central Valley, as they give their all to build a cross-country team under the direction of Coach Jim White (Costner), a newcomer to their predominantly Latino high school. The unlikely band of runners overcomes the odds to forge not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well.
The festival runs from January 27-February 7.
Below is the list of World and U.S. Premiere films followed by the list of titles by sidebar categories.
