The Teaser Poster For Cooties Is Infectious!

30 April 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Breakout with Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson & Alison Pill with the hilarious new teaser poster from Lionsgate Premiere’s Cooties. The movie is the opening night film at the Stanley Film Festival.

From the twisted minds of Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious) and Ian Brennan (co-creator of “Glee”), Cooties is a horror comedy with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills. When a cafeteria food virus turns elementary school children into killer zombies, a group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage.

The film stars Elijah Wood (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings), Rainn Wilson (“The Office”), and Alison Pill (“The Newsroom”) as teachers who fight to survive the mayhem while hilariously bickering in an uncomfortable love triangle on the worst Monday of their lives.

SpectreVision and Glacier Films present Cooties, starring Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer, Leigh Whannell, Nasim Pedrad, Ian Brennan and Jorgé Garcia. »

Cooties will be released in select theaters and on VOD beginning September 18th. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for our coverage of Cooties and other films at the Stanley Film Festival.

6 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in May 2015 (And the Best Episodes of Each)

Read More:  7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in April 2015 (And the Best Episodes of Each) 1) "Grace and Frankie" Season 1 (available May 8)Why Should I Watch It? Every actor making up the series' four lead roles worked on an Aaron Sorkin series. Even more importantly, those actors are Jane Fonda ("The Newsroom" and, you know, a two-time Oscar winner), Lily Tomlin ("The West Wing," plus a six-time Emmy winner and Oscar nominee), Martin Sheen (Jed Mother F'n Bartlet!), and Sam Waterston ("The Newsroom" and some old show about cops and lawyers). It's hard to go wrong with that cast, and Indiewire TV Editor Liz Shannon Miller says the show mostly delivers with room to improve (and indicators that it will).  Best Episode: Episode 6 shakes things up — literally. Though "Grace and Frankie" gets off to an uneven start in terms of its laughs to tears ratio, things get plenty jovial after »

Sensing their time could be quickly running out, they decide to face the future together, regard with curiosity and tenderness their children’s confused lives, the enthusiasm of Mick’s young writers and the other guests at their hotel. Mick is scrambling to finish what he imagines will be his last important film. Fred gave up his music career a long time ago. But there is someone who wants at all costs to hear his compositions and to see him conduct again.

The Newsroom’s Jeff Daniels Boards Two-Part Divergent Finale Allegiant In Key Role

29 April 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lionsgate’s big-screen adaptation of Veronica Roth’s Divergent series may not have reached the dizzying heights of the company’s other Ya juggernaut, The Hunger Games, but the property has still managed to carve out an audience of its own to warrant Lionsgate seeing the series through to its two-part conclusion, Allegiant.

With little less than a year until the arrival of Part I, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the studio is on the verge of snapping up its first new addition to the anticipated finale: The Newsroom‘s Jeff Daniels. It’s understood that the part reserved for the Dumb and Dumber star is a key role, one which will stretch across both installments.

Filming on Allegiant – Part I is due to get underway next month, with Ripd helmer Robert Schwentke returning at the helm following his work on Insurgent. Whether or not Schwentke returns to close »

Jeff Daniels Takes Major Role in Two-Part 'Divergent' Finale 'Allegiant'

29 April 2015 7:21 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following the trend of Harry Potter, The Twilight Saga and The Hunger Games, we already know that The Divergent Series: Allegiant will be split into two films. Allegiant - Part 1 will arrive on March 18th, 2016 and Allegiant - Part 2 will arrive on March 24th, 2017. That meas the entire franchise will have been release in just four years. That would be more impressive if the films had a little more substance (they're not terrible, just underwhelming), but young adult sci-fi is all the rage right now. Anyway, the finale might up the ante as THR reports Dumb & Dumber and "The Newsroom" star Jeff Daniels has joined. If you haven't seen The Divergent Series: Insurgent yet, then stop reading. As we learned at the end of the sequel, the faction program was created in order find the best and brightest people who would join the rest of society, which is very much »

Jeff Daniels Chooses ‘The Divergent Series’

28 April 2015 9:32 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jeff Daniels has just signed on for The Divergent Series: Alleigiant and as with all great film series of the day, The Divergent Series: Allegiant will be split in two. Daniels, star of Dumb & Dumber, Speed, and TV sensation The Newsroom, will be taking on the role of the main antagonist, David.

The film will continue the adventures of Shailene Woodley’s Tris, a girl in a world in which the inhabitants must choose which faction they belong to, while under the thumb of an oppressive government. I won’t give away anything from this year’s The Divergent Series: Insurgent, other than the ending left us wanting more, and certainly switched things up a bit.

The Divergent Series: Alleigiant Part 1 will be released 18th March 2016, with Part 2 following on 24th March 2017.

Twilight Actor Alex Meraz Joins Suicide Squad; A Look At Viola Davis On Set

28 April 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Though they have no idea who he'll be playing, Variety report that Twilight's Alex Meraz (who also starred alongside Jamie Dornan in the British miniseries New Worlds) has joined the cast of Suicide Squad, which is currently shooting in Toronto under director David Ayer. Meraz's character may be a mystery for now, but we do know Academy Award winner Viola David will play Amanda "The Wall" Waller, and a fan managed to get this pic with the actress as she prepared to shoot in downtown Toronto earlier today. As you can see he also met Will Smith (Deadshot), and The Newsroom actor David Harbour who will apparently have a small role in the film.   Me and Viola Davis!! #ViolaDavis #SuicideSquad #AmandaWaller (#DCComics) #HowToGetAwayWithMurder (#HtGAwM) #AnnaliseKeating #LilaAndEve #Prisoners #EndersGame #GetRichOrDieTryin #Blackhat #celebrities #actress #producer #Toronto A photo posted by Jay Stoney (@frankrizzowerks) on Apr 27, 2015 at 8:52pm Pdt   My biggest Omfg »

The Big Short begins filming, cast officially announced

22 April 2015 8:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paramount Pictures, New Regency and Plan B Entertainment have today announced the start of production on The Big Short, their A-list ensemble piece that is currently filming in New Orleans.

Anchorman 2 director Adam McKay is directing the film which stars Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Trilogy), Brad Pitt (Fury), Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) and Ryan Gosling (Drive), as well as newly announced additions Marisa Tomei (The Wrestler) and Melissa Leo (The Fighter).

McKay re-wrote the film from a previous script from Charles Randolph (Love and Other Drugs), which is based on bestselling non-fiction book The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis. The book tells the remarkable true story of the genius contrarian investors who, recognizing just how insane the housing bubble had become, figured out how to “short” the market prior to the financial collapse of 2008.

The Big Short Starts Shooting With Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, and Brad Pitt

21 April 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Writer/director Adam McKay is not only funny, but he's passionate about the economic disparity that plagues this country. Aside from the fact that I love most of his movies, I love his political outrage, which I find to be well-honed and persistent but in a way that's not irritating and actually has a chance of reaching people beyond the converted. So while The Big Short looks like it will be markedly less humorous than his other films (on purpose, it's a drama), I'm betting he nails it. And he'll have a lot of great help too. We reported earlier that Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale were onboard the film, and provided a more recent update that Steve Carell had joined the team. Now comes the news that The Big Short has started shooting and that Melissa Leo and Marisa Tomei have joined the cast. McKay and Charles Randolph »

Showtime's Smug 'HAPPYish' Is a Curmudgeon's Defense of Society's Most Sacred Cow

21 April 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In the spirit of "HAPPYish," Showtime's self-satisfied new satire of American culture, let's skip the pleasantries. Our first sight of protagonist Thom Payne (Steve Coogan) is of his outstretched middle finger, a taunting "Fuck you!" to the viewer that more or less expresses the sour, pissing-contest bravado of the entire exercise: like Thomas Jefferson, "Mad Men," brands, Jewish mothers, and teenagers, we're easy targets for creator Shalom Auslander's palpable rage against the machine of modern life, laid out in Thom's opening monologue with all the subtlety of an eighth grader's five-paragraph essay. "What the fuck is happiness?" he asks, with an audible sneer. "A BMW? A thousand Facebook friends? A million Twitter followers?" It's as if the Aaron Sorkin of HBO's "The Newsroom" rode into Matthew Weiner's artful drama on his high horse and stripped away all but the most irksome "kids these days" »

Emmys shockeroo: Guest actresses Jane Fonda, Geena Davis must go supporting

15 April 2015 4:35 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In an effort to define what it truly means to be a "guest" star, the Emmys introduced a new rule this year that only performers appearing in less than 50% of the eligible episodes may enter the guest categories. Those who appear in half or more of the season's episodes must now go supporting. Among the actresses affected by this rule change are Jane Fonda, who popped up in three of the six episodes of "The Newsroom," and Geena Davis, who was seen in 12 of the 24 episodes of "Grey's Anatomy." -Break- Now that they've been cruelly thrown out of the guest star race, will Fonda and Davis get their revenge on the Emmys in the Best Drama Supporting Actress category?
