Predestination (2015) Review

16 December 2014 11:58 AM, PST | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

Predestination is a little bit like Looper but markedly more intricate in plot details. In fact its such a thought provoking film two viewings may be required to grasp each of the straws at our disposal. A time travelling tale of serial killers and a lifelong hunt the picture incorporates strong science fiction elements with thick strands of dark thriller. It isnt an outright horror film but its an engrossing blast that genre fans are likely to gravitate toward. Plus come on Ethan Hawke fronts the film and hes been winning over horror hounds for years thanks to pics like The Purge Sinister and Daybreakers. Why not leap into this everchanging landscape »

Rumor: Morgan Freeman, Ken Watanabe, and Bill Nighy up for Doctor Strange Role

12 December 2014 3:55 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After months of speculation about who would fill the title role, Marvel finally announced last week that Benedict Cumberbatch would indeed star in Doctor Strange.  Hopefully this next casting decision wont take as long.  Rumor has it that Marvel has approached Morgan Freeman, Ken Watanabe, and Bill Nighy for the role of The Ancient One. If you're not familiar, The Ancient One is the former "Sorcerer Supreme" and Doctor Strange's mentor.  He also mentored Baron Karl Mordo, who is heavily speculated to feature as the villain of Doctor Strange. Scott Derrickson (Sinister) is directing the film from a script by John Spaihts.  Doctor Strange is set to hit theaters November 4, 2016.  Hit the jump for more. The rumor comes from Latino Review, with the outlet claiming they've heard from multiple sources that Marvel has reached out to Freeman, Watanabe, and Nighy.  What's most exciting to me about this is the »

Icons of Fright Interview with actor/writer/director Amanda Aday!

10 December 2014 7:50 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

(photo credit: Collette Lash Photography www.collettelash.com)

Known for her recurring role as Dora Mae Dreifuss on HBO’s Carnivale (amongst countless other projects), Amanda Aday has surely proven herself as much more than “Meat Loaf’s Daughter.”  An actress and writer, Aday has recently taken the leap to try her hand at directing, with her new horror flick Painless.  Icons of Fright was fortunate enough to have a chat with this jack-of-all trades about the industry, dream projects, and directing while female.

Icons: I know you have been acting for a very long time and you’ve developed a pretty nice career out of it, what made you decide to direct?

Amanda Aday: I think it’s always been in the back of my mind.  Even when I was little during class projects, instead of making dioramas or writing papers, my friends and I would always make movies. »

Benedict Cumberbatch is officially Marvel's Doctor Strange

4 December 2014 3:37 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

After what seems like years of speculation, it’s official: Benedict Cumberbatch is Marvel’s Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange.

For those of you not in the know, Strange, a neuroseurgon, becomes involved in the mystical arts and starts jumping into alternate dimensions after a career-ending car accident. On his off days, he’s also the Sorcerer Supreme, Earth’s protector against all mystical enemies. Fun stuff.

“Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity,” said Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios. “In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character.”

Cumberbatch, perhaps best known for his role on BBC’s modern adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, has been enjoying a very envious, very busy career of late. He’s worked with J.J. Abrams, speechifying around a spaceship as Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness, »

Benedict Cumberbatch Confirmed for 'Doctor Strange', Reynolds Locked for 'Deadpool'

Marvel has confirmed rumors that Benedict Cumberbatch will play the title role in Marvel's Doctor Strange for director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) with a screenplay from Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). This casting was all but assumed, but Marvel slow-played the reveal as contracts most likely weren't signed when they did their big announcement back in October. The film will follow the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. Doctor Strange arrives in theaters November 4, 2016. Next we have Ryan Reynolds who is apparently closing a deal to star in Deadpool, a spin-off from the 2009 summer hit X-Men Origins: Wolverine in which Reynolds starred as the wise-cracking mercenary. It was assumed he'd return after Fox set a February 12, 2016 release date, but nothing is confirmed until it's confirmed... rightc https://twitter.com/VancityReynolds/status/540594148097916928 yt id="LoXGsv9nsNs" width="500" »
