'Captain America: Civil War' Blu-Ray Will Have Exclusive 'Doctor Strange' Content!

30 June 2016 8:12 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

With DC getting all the superhero press lately, you might be wondering, "Doesn't Marvel have another movie coming out this year?" You'd be right, of course, since Doctor Strange is set to take us to new, fantastical places when it comes out on November 4. But, aside from a trailer that's now several months old, there hasn't been much to say about the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That's going to change when Captain America: Civil War is released on blu-ray.

The home release of Captain America: Civil War is going to include all kinds of great bonus features, but the one that caught our attention was this one:

"'Open Your Mind: Marvel’s Doctor Strange' – Exclusive Sneak Peek – Go behind and beyond the scenes as Doctor Strange makes his journey to the big screen."

Sounds pretty groovy for fans dying for a taste of what director Scott Derrickson »

Benedict Wong says Doctor Strange’s Wong won’t be “a tea-making manservant”

28 June 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This November Benedict Wong (Prometheus, The Martian) is set to team up with fellow Brit – and fellow Benedict – Benedict Cumberbatch, as he portrays Dr. Stephen Strange’s sidekick Wong in Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

During an interview with Den of Geek, the appropriately named actor has revealed some details on the direction Marvel is taking with the character:

“I’m certainly not going to be the tea-making manservant. We’re heading in a different direction,” said Wong. “He’s more of a drill sergeant. There isn’t any martial arts for Wong in Doctor Strange actually, he’s more of a drill sergeant to Kamar-Taj. He’s one of the masters of sorcery.”

John Carpenter to Return to Halloween

24 May 2016 5:41 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

John Carpenter’s returning to Haddonfield for another sequel to his 1978 slasher classic, Halloween. Variety reports the director of other esteemed flicks like The Thing and Starman is on board to exec produce the next installment in the long-running Michael Myers saga.

Carpenter jokes around with star Jamie Lee Curtis on the set of the original Halloween

The 68-year-old director-writer-composer-actor said, “Thirty-eight years after the original Halloween, I’m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all.” (He seems to be counting Rob Zombie’s oughts remakes of both Halloween and Halloween II as sequels.)

Michael Myers slashes his way into infamy

He will co-produce with Jason Blum (The Conjuring, Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister, The Gift, The Visit) and Malek Akkad, who produced the tepidly received Rob Zombie remakes. Blum’s Blumhouse Productions is joining with Miramax to co-finance.

Halloween Sequel Coming From Blumhouse Productions and John Carpenter

24 May 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Despite a few bobbles here and there, the Halloween series still has legs and Blumhouse Productions wants to put it to good use.  Today they've revealed they're working with John Carpenter on a new film in the beloved horror franchise.  Come inside to check it out!  

Despite seeing fairly decent success with a Halloween reboot, studios have struggled to get another film in the franchise off the ground.  Things seemed to get even more murky when this past December saw Dimension Lose the rights to the films.  Since then, things have been very quiet for Michael Myers, which makes this morning's announcement so surprising.  

Blumhouse Productions (who've been dominating the horror movie genre for the last several years with films like Insidious, The Conjuring, Sinister, and Paranormal Activity) are partnering with Miramax to develop a new Halloween movie.  Even better, they've brought John Carpenter, the original's director, on board to executive produce the upcoming film. »

John Carpenter To Produce "Halloween" Sequel

23 May 2016 9:53 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

For many years Dimension Films has been trying to get another "Halloween" film off the ground but ultimately in all that messing about, they lost the rights to the iconic horror series.

Now, in an unexpected announcement at an event in Los Angeles tonight, "Insidious" and "Sinister" producers Blumhouse Productions revealed that they are teaming with Miramax and Trancas International to co-finance a new "Halloween" sequel.

On top of that, director John Carpenter will be on board the film as executive producer - returning to the very franchise he created. Though not officially set to do so, Blum also reportedly made it clear at the announcement that the hope is to see Carpenter also return to score the new film.

In typical dry Carpenter fashion, the filmmaker says: "38 years after the original Halloween. I'm going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all." Malek Akkad »

Marvel May Still Be Making The Sinister Six Movie, Here's Why

22 May 2016 3:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Truly, ever since it became clear that The Avengers was happening, fans had a lot of hope that Spider-Man would be a part of that world, and with the release of Captain America: Civil War, they finally got their wish. Tom Holland has delivered what very well may be the best on screen Spider-Man we have ever seen and he will be getting a big chance to really shine next year when Spider-Man: Homecoming is released and as the film nears production, we have been slowly learning details about the villains and loose plot details. Though it is very early on, it looks like Marvel Studios may be laying the seeds for something much bigger to come with Spidey's arc in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that thing could be The Sinister Six.

For those that may not be as familiar with their Spider-Man history, The Sinister Six is essentially »

20 May 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Brandon Camp, son of Joe Camp, will write and direct a reboot of the cute dog franchise "Benji" for Blumhouse Productions.

Yes Blumhouse, the microbudget studio responsible for "Paranormal Activity," "Insidious," "The Purge," and "Sinister" franchises, is behind the project which will allow Brandon free creative rein on the film just like his father when he created the original 1970s films and series outside the studio system.

Described as a modern retelling of the dog tale with a newly rescued new Benji, the film will follow the pooch with an uncanny knack for being in the right place at the right time, usually to help someone overcome a problem.

Both Camp and Jason Blum will produce the project.

Why Focus Features Ditched Horror Flicks and Returned to Its Indie Roots

14 May 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three months after a dramatic overhaul swept out one regime and replaced it with another, Focus Features is out in force at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The company is premiering Oscar-hopeful “Loving,” snapping up international distribution rights to “American Honey” with Shia Labeouf, and is reintroducing itself as a maker of indie films after a failed foray into genre and horror pictures. Under chairman Peter Kujawski, what’s old is new again.

“We’re really going back to what people still associate Focus’ name and brand with and what Focus had originally been doing, which is being a specialty company,” Kujawski told Variety.

That means leaving the films like “Sinister” and “London Has Fallen” to studio parent, Universal Pictures, and doubling down on prestige and filmmaker-driven fare such as “The Theory of Everything” or the upcoming spy thriller “The Coldest City” with Charlize Theron and James McAvoy.

Michael Giacchino to compose Doctor Strange score

6 May 2016 1:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite getting many things right, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has long struggled with one thing: its film scores. While Alan Silvestri managed to make an alright theme for The Avengers, it didn’t stick around after Phase One of the McU, and was nowhere near as iconic as the superhero themes from composers like Danny Elfman, John Williams or Hans Zimmer.

That may be about to change, because we just found out that Michael Giacchino (The Incredibles, Jurassic World) will be the composer for Marvel’s Doctor Strange. Giacchino announced the news himself today on Twitter:

Things are about to get, well… really Strange.@scottderrickson @Marvel pic.twitter.com/LIhuCNy3lB

Michael Giacchino (@m_giacchino) May 6, 2016

5 May 2016 11:36 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Doctor Strange” writer-director Scott Derrickson is the latest industry figure to weigh in on Hollywood’s pervading “whitewashing” issue.

“Raw anger/hurt from Asian-Americans over Hollywood whitewashing, stereotyping & erasure of Asians in cinema. I am listening and learning,” the director, who’s also known for horror films like “Sinister” and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose,” expressed in a Wednesday tweet.

Amidst the controversy, Marvel released a statement to address the accusations. “The Ancient One is a title that is not exclusively held by any one character, »
