Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett offer up an idea for You’re Next 2

15 September 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spoilers for You’re Next, obviously…

Their latest movie, The Guest, is still out in cinemas (read our reviews here and here) and to promote the movie, director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett took part in a Reddit Ama. But while discussing The Guest, they offered up some ideas for a sequel to their home invason horror, You’re Next.

When asked what they would do if they were to put together a sequel, the duo answerd, “We had a cool idea that involves Erin being blamed for the first film’s murders. She escapes from a prison van and has to fight off attackers related to the first film’s Lamb Mask in the woods while she is still handcuffed to several other criminals from the transport vehicle. Of course it would get way more complicated than that but that would be the starting point.”

Wish I Was Here Review

15 September 2014 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Zach Braff

Starring: Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Joey King, Pierce Gagnon, Josh Gad

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 106 minutes

Synopsis: Aidan Bloom is a 35-year-old man who finds himself at major crossroads, which forces him to examine his life, his career, and his family.

I’m a huge fan of Zach Braff’s directorial debut Garden State (2004) and I found that I both related to and enjoyed on its own merit; in equal measure. Braff merged a curious mix of cleverness with reality and now in Wish I Was Here he does it again but with additional heart alongside a positive flirtation with nostalgia.

Wish I Was Here has been co-written with Zach’s brother Adam J. Braff, and while it primarily focuses around 35-year-old Aidan Bloom (Zach Braff), who’s found himself struggling at a crossroads in his life, it also dives deeply to discuss relationships with family »

Roland Emmerich and Keanu Reeves Partner on New Sci-Fi Series

9 September 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Well, "Stonewall" director Roland Emmerich hasn't completely changed his stripes. The man behind the upcoming, intimate gay civil rights drama who also brought us "Independence Day" and "The Day After Tomorrow" and "White House Down" is turning to the small screen -- on a new sci-fi series with co-executive producer Keanu Reeves. "New Angeles" will be set in the future, based around a young man who escapes the mundane reality of his life by entering the titular virtual reality world. Once down the rabbit hole, he adopts a new identity, and unlocks a mystery with real world consequences. So... "The Matrix"? In a sense. Emmerich will direct the pilot and remain involved in the series, to be distributed by Slingshot Global Media, as an executive producer.  He's currently in post on "Stonewall." His company Centropolis and Reeves' Company Films are on board to produce "New Angeles."  Nyt »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Toronto Spotlight: Fleming, ‘The Equalizer’ Helmer Antoine Fuqua Share Man Love For Denzel’s Killer Acting Skills

7 September 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Tonight in Toronto, Denzel Washington and his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua will launch a new franchise, The Equalizer, a drama loosely based on the TV series. Thankfully for fans of Washington’s action work, the film is a closer spiritual cousin to Man On Fire, with Washington playing a righteous character who is merciless on the bad guys. Here, Fuqua, who is also mounting a Magnificent Seven remake with Washington for MGM, discusses the star’s everyman appeal and what makes him capable of so many indelible performances.

Deadline: Watching The Equalizer made me feel like I’d gotten the Man On Fire sequel I never thought possible when John Creasy died after killing every kidnapper in Mexico. The spirit of the movie courses through The Equalizer. What is it about Denzel Washington killing bad guys that makes it feel like Christmas morning?

Fuqua: [Laughs]. I just think it’s »

Yesterday it was reported that Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) was in line to take on the role of Snake Plisskin in the reboot of the John Carpenter classic, Escape From New York. While over to promote his new film The Guest (read our review here), Stevens told Flickering Myth that there was no truth to the rumours.

“(laughs) I just heard [the rumours] this morning,” Stevens said. “It’s the first I’ve heard of it. It’s hilarious if it’s true! I don’t know anything about it. But it’s lovely to have it banded about.”

During the interview, Stevens talked about this love for John Carpenter movies and indicated that he would be interested in the role however saying, “I need to make some phone calls, I think!”

Fredrik Bond Will Direct London Has Fallen

19 August 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

What seemed like an impossible idea before last year’s financial victory over fellow terrorism thriller White House Down is closer to becoming a reality. The Olympus Has Fallen sequel London Has Fallen just locked in a director. Fredrik Bond, who last shot Shia Labeouf drama Charlie Countryman, will marshal the madness.With Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett, Radha Mitchell and Morgan Freeman returning as Secret Service agent Mike Banning, Us President Benjamin Asher, Secret Service Director Lynn Jacobs, Leah Banning and Speaker Trumbull respectively, the sequel’s plot will see the characters headed to London to attend the funeral of our Prime Minister. World leaders from far and wide are in attendance, but it turns out that it's all a dastardly scheme to get them in one place for a mass assassination and a seismic change to the world order.

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Sequel Moves To London & Confirms Director

19 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Olympus Has Fallen came out at the same time as White House Down (Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx) and was probably easily dismissed if you saw the latter, like I did, as another one of those patriotic America Yeah! movies. But in reality it was a completely different animal and with the rumours that Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman are all set to returns to their roles for the sequel, they’ve wasted no time pinning down a director to take it to the next stage.

Going for the imaginative London Has Fallen, fallen down, fallen down…the new director has been announced as Fredrik Bond, the man who also directed the Shia Labeouf-starring Charlie Countryman, as they move events from the White House to London.

This time around, the three main characters, U.S. Secret Service agent (Butler), U.S. president (Eckhart) and the speaker of the U. »

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Sequel ‘London Has Fallen’ Gets a Director

18 August 2014 5:12 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Despite some issues with storytelling, Antoine Fuqua’s one-man-army film, Olympus Has Fallen, is a solidly entertaining action movie. The movie follows an ex-secret service operative fighting terrorists in the White House (not to be confused with Roland Emmerich’s White House Down about a wannabe secret service agent fighting terrorists in the White House).

While both blockbusters performed well at the box office, Fuqua’s R-rated action film grossed more domestically and cost significantly less to create; thus, Olympus Has Fallen is the one that earned a sequel, titled London Has Fallen. However, Fuqua will not be returning to direct the followup, which was originally intended to begin production May 2014. Millennium Films has instead tapped a ...

‘Charlie Countryman’ Director Fredrik Bond To Helm ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Sequel

18 August 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

To recap: With “Independence Day 2” still in development in the spring/summer of 2013, two studios went head to head with dueling bad-guys-get-inside-the-White-House movies. Sony Pictures had “White House Down,” and released a few months earlier, FilmDistrict (now known as Focus Features) had “Olympus Has Fallen.” The conventional wisdom  tended to favor Sony; their film had stars like Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx and made $205 million worldwide (some notable critics enjoyed its ludicrousness). But at a costly $150 million, “White House Down” only made $73 million at home. In comparison, the cheaper to produce “Olympus Has Fallen,” featuring the cut-rate stars of Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart (sorry guys) made $161 million worldwide against a $70 million budget. The smaller film has the greater profit margin, thus a sequel is born. So unless you’ve blocked it out of your memory, Focus Features has already announced a sequel titled “London Has »

Disney Classics Getting Blu-Ray Release August 12th – Tarzan, Hercules, And More

6 August 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

A slew of classic Disney movies are hitting for the first time on Blu-Ray, including one double-pack release, and you’re going to want to make sure to pick these up. You haven’t paid attention to some of these titles for a while, and it’s about time you got the chance to catch them on Blu-Ray. The best part is that there’s a great mix of releases hitting. Bedknobs and Broomsticks is all but lost in the cultural consciousness, and it deserves a return. The Academy Award-winning movie from the year I was born is filled with a lot of fun and adventure, and like most Disney films, holds up well for a whole new generation.

The rest of the group covers a great spectrum, including two animated “big” titles, and a 10th Anniversary release. There’s a lot to expose your family to here, so check out all the info below, »

Forget the summer, did 'Guardians of the Galaxy' just save the rest of 2014?

4 August 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's taken a few months, but moviegoers finally found another summer movie they adore. "Boyhood" has a very passionate fan base, but that awards-worthy player still isn't in enough theaters to come close to qualifying for nationwide release. No, America and some parts of the world have gone nuts for James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy," and with not a moment to spare. Frankly, this summer movie season has mostly been a box office dud from a studio perspective. That's somewhat perplexing considering the quality of films in May and June were surprisingly strong. "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "Neighbors," "22 Jump Street," "Maleficent," "The Fault in Our Stars," "Edge of Tomorrow" and "How to Train Your Dragon 2" guaranteed there was at least one good movie opening almost every weekend over the first six weeks of the summer. The box office results were mixed, however. "Days" was the biggest »
