Blair Witch Director Returns With Bigfoot Shocker Exists; Hits DVD/Digital This February!

What’s the best way to follow-up Bobcat Godlthwait’s bigfoot film, Willow Creek, a film that a lot of audiences felt was a tad bit too close to The Blair Witch Project? Well, enter The Blair Watch Project director, Eduardo Sanchez. The man somewhat responsible for creating the found footage craze figured it was time to throw his hat into the Sasquatch game, with his new film, Exists. The film has been getting quite the buzz surrounding it, and now thanks to the gang at Lionsgate, Exists is set to hit DVD/Digital on January 3rd.

“For five friends, it was a chance for a summer getaway — a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force of nature is unleashed — something not exactly human,

‘Age Of Ultron’ And ‘Ant-Man’ Details Emerge (Minor Spoilers!)

Read on at your own risk! There are plenty of glorious, wondrous plot details which in all honesty have made me beyond excited for both Avengers: Age Of Ultron as well as Ant-man and I sincerely hope all of them are true. None of them are particularly major and do not give away the plot of either film but should still be regarded as spoilers. The details are taken from the exclusive over at Joblo.

First up is Avengers: Age Of Ultron:

According to Kevin Feige, the new Avengers Tower is the largest ever for a Marvel film, featuring a large landing platform and garage for the new Quinjet within a large space that is full of windows, screens, and “techno stuff” but “really chic” with a lab directly in the middle where Stark and Banner work together.

There will, in fact, be a “party” or “celebratory” scene that

Emmett/Furla Films Plays the Tax Break Game

Emmett/Furla Films Plays the Tax Break Game
By choosing to shoot “Lone Survivor” in New Mexico, Emmett/Furla not only got an excellent stand-in for the pic’s Afghanistan setting less than two hours by air from Hollywood, it was also able to cash in on the state’s 25%-30% refundable tax credit.

“It’s a big chunk of money,” says producer Randall Emmett, and “with the economy we’ve had for the last five years, without an incentive, most investors don’t want to invest.”

The shingle is a seasoned veteran of the film tax credit world. When the domestic incentive race kicked off a decade ago, the company was among the first to cash in, shooting “Blind Horizon” in New Mexico and “A Love Song for Bobby Long” in Louisiana. It has braved inclement weather and lack of production infrastructure to take advantage of Alaska’s little-used transferable tax credit, which returns as much as 58% on in-state expenditures,
