26 December 2016 4:03 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Even though there are only a few days of 2016 left, that doesn’t mean we don’t have several more horror and sci-fi home entertainment releases to look forward to before the new year arrives. This Tuesday, Ti West’s In A Valley of Violence arrives on both Blu-ray and DVD, and Scream Factory is giving the cult classic The House That Screamed an HD overhaul.

Festival favorite Pet comes home on December 27th courtesy of Paramount, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has a new batch of Underworld Blu-rays coming our way, including the original film in 4K Ultra HD. Other notable releases this week include When the Bough Breaks, Dog Eat Dog, and Kill Command.

The House That Screamed (Scream Factory, Blu-ray)

The chilling 1970 horror film by Narciso Ibáñez-Serrador (Who Could Kill A Child?) has been cited as an influence on Dario Argento's classic Suspiria. »

Moana Wins Thanksgiving Weekend Box Office with $55.5M

27 November 2016 11:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Heading into this holiday weekend, it was expected that last weekend's winner, the Harry Potter spin-off, would not repeat at the box office, going up against four high-profile new releases. The box office hit went up against four new titles that all opened in wide release on Wednesday, Disney's Moana, Paramount's Allied, Broad Green Pictures' Bad Santa 2 and 20th Century Fox's Rules Don't Apply. As expected, Moana easily took the top spot with a three-day weekend tally of $55.5 million, and a five-day total of $81.1 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Moana opened in 3,875 theaters this weekend, with an impressive $14,329 per-screen average. No budget figures were released for this animated adventure, which came in quite lower than Disney's hit animated movies such as Frozen ($67.3 million) and Zootopia ($75 million). Both of those films ended up earning over $1 billion worldwide during their full theatrical runs, but it remains to be seen whether »

Will Disney's Moana Rule the Thanksgiving Box Office?

22 November 2016 9:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite dominating at the box office last weekend with $74.4 million, Warner Bros.' Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them may be in danger of relinquishing its box office crown already. Four new releases hit theaters over a crowded Thanksgiving holiday frame, with Disney's Moana, starring Dwayne Johnson, Paramount's Allied, starring Brad Pitt, Broad Green Pictures' Bad Santa 2 starring Billy Bob Thornton and Rules Don't Apply starring Alden Ehrenreich vying for the box office crown. While it may come down to the wire, we're predicting that Moana unseats Fantastic Beasts over the holiday weekend.

Box Office Mojo reports that Moana is set to debut in over 3,800 theaters this weekend, which is still roughly 350 theaters less than Fantastic Beasts. Allied is expected to roll out in approximately 3,000 theaters, while Bad Santa 2 will debut in more than 2,500 theaters and Rules Don't Apply is expected to arrive in 2,300 theaters this weekend. »

Fantastic Beasts Casts a Spell on Weekend Box Office with $75M

20 November 2016 10:16 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. brought their Harry Potter universe back to theaters this weekend with their first spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which was expected to dominate at the box office. This big screen adventure, which is set decades before Harry Potter stepped foot in Hogwarts, had no trouble taking the top spot, bringing in an impressive $75 million in its opening weekend. This magical adventure also scored big in international markets with $143.3 million, for a worldwide total of $218.3 million, from a whopping $180 million budget.

Box Office Mojo reports that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them earned an impressive $18,098 from 4,144 theaters in its opening weekend. That massive roll out is more than twice as much as the other newcomers that hit theaters this weekend, Open Road Films' Bleed For This (1,549 theaters) and Stx Entertainment's The Edge of Seventeen (1,945 theaters), neither of which managed to crack the top 5.

Will Fantastic Beasts Demolish Doctor Strange at the Box Office?

15 November 2016 9:47 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After two straight weekend wins in theaters, Marvel's Doctor Strange is a hit, taking in nearly $500 million at the worldwide box office after just fourteen days in theaters. This weekend the Marvel Phase 3 adventure faces its biggest test yet, going up against Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, along with Open Road Films' true story adaptation Bleed For This and Stx Entertainment's teen comedy The Edge of Seventeen. It should be no contest for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which could have a runaway victory with a whopping $72.5 million.

While $72.5 million is certainly a great opening by many standards, it would actually mark the "worst" opening in the Harry Potter franchise. As of now, the lowest opening weekend in the Harry Potter franchise is the $77.1 million earned by Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in 2007. Still, that tally »

Tad 2016: Kill Command Reviewed!

[Editor's Note: Be sure to join us on Facebook for news and contests and even more discussion of awesome movies, books and TV!]

Long time Qe readers will already know our love of scrappy, indie sci-fi runs deep, for better or worse. I've certainly taken my lumps from readers for championing films like Mutant Chronicles (which I maintain is wildly original and entertaining) in the past and while Kill Command easily slots into similar territory it takes less chances than some of more adventurous recent failures I've loved.

It’s soon clear that someone or something else has moved into the building with them – an evil spirit who with a sinister agenda of its own. One the scariest films of the year, »

Movie Review – Kill Command (2016)

18 May 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kill Command, 2016.

Directed by Steve Gomez.

Starring Vanessa Kirby, Thure Lindhardt and David Ajala.

Synopsis:

In a near future technology-reliant society, an elite army unit is helicoptered to a remote, off-the-grid island facility. What starts out as a simple training exercise for Captain Bukes (Lindhardt) and his tight-knit squad, descends into a terrifying battle to the death, as the marines discover the island is overrun by an enemy that transcends the human concept of evil.

There is much mystery to explore in Steve Gomez’s debut feature film Kill Command. Set in the near future where advanced AI and cybernetics have been invented, we follow Mills (a poignantly controlled Vanessa Kirby), a robotically enhanced woman working for a seemingly benevolent tech company, who is sent on one of the company’s field test locations. There, a squad of Us Marines is meant to train for combat using robots which Mills helped design. »

International Star You Should Know: British Actress Vanessa Kirby

6 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At 28, Vanessa Kirby is having a busy year: She’s starring in Netflix’s first U.K.-produced series, “The Crown,” as well as three films — romance “Me Before You,” actioner “Kill Command” and period drama “Genius.” On stage, she follows a February turn in “Uncle Vanya” in London with “A Streetcar Named Desire,” now in previews ahead of its New York opening at St Ann’s Warehouse.

Early Inspiration: Kirby attended local plays as a teen, but it wasn’t until she saw a National Theatre production of “The Cherry Orchard” with Vanessa Redgrave that she fully comprehended her passion for acting. “I got so drawn into it that I left thinking, ‘I wanna do what they’re doing somehow — tell stories in some kind of way that might move people,’ ” she says.

Sci-Fi London 2016: ‘Kill Command’ Review

6 May 2016 9:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Vanessa Kirby, Thure Lindhart, David Ajala, Tom McKay, Mike Noble, Bentley Kalu, Deborah Rosan, Osi Okerafor | Written and Directed by Steven Gomez

In Kill Command, a group of military meatheads travel to a remote island for a training exercise involving ten-foot-tall combat robots designed to give the soldiers a run for their money but never actually do harm. A spoiler alert shouldn’t be necessary for telling you that within about ten minutes that “do no harm” protocol has been wiped clean.

It’s an uninspired premise and, as expected, the resulting film feels like a shoddy videogame adaptation of Terminator, with exactly the absence of imagination and intensity that comparison implies. I could go into detail about all the film’s flaws: the onslaught of gung-ho action clichés the screenplay delivers like a barrage of bullets; the unironic stereotypes that not even the most enthusiastic performances could salvage (for example, »

Murderous Eyes Stare Back at You in this Trailer for Kill Command

29 February 2016 2:09 PM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Vertigo Films has completed production on the sci-fi horror feature Kill Command. Developed by first time director Steven Gomez and the producers of Monsters (Alan Niblo, James Richardson), the film's first trailer is available here. The clip shows an elite group of soldiers, fighting against adaptable machines; the results are horrifying. The film is set for release in the United Kingdom in May. Fans of films can view the entire trailer here. The trailer reveals more of the story, that is not mentioned in the official synopsis. The machines are called S.A.R., which is an acronym for: study, analyze and reprogram. These S.A.R. can act like humans, in that they can adapt to their environment and they can respond to threats, in that environment. As well, the character Mills (Vanessa Kirby) appears to have some programming of her own. Fans of horror and sci-fi are encouraged »
