Five must see movies

There are a number of films over time that are simply a must watch for movie fans. These leave a lasting impression on the viewer and can also be that motivator that may be needed. Here we cover five films you need to watch in your lifetime.

5) The Exorcist

This 1973 supernatural horror film is what really kicked off the genre and is simply a must watch. It is inspired by the 1949 book called Exorcism of Roland Doe, which follows the demonic possession of a 12 year old girl, with her mother attempting to win her back using priests help. At the time of making it had the shock factor and duly became one of the highest grossing films of all time.

4) Casino

This 1995 crime film directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Robert De Niro was based on the book called Casino: Love and Honor in Las Vegas. The film covers the

Every Pokemon Reveled in First Detective Pikachu Footage

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures dropped a big fat surprise online today in the form of the first trailer for Detective Pikachu. This serves as the first ever live-action Pokemon movie and the first footage didn't skimp on the goods. The trailer is loaded down with Pokemon from various eras that should make most fans quite happy. To help catch people up on anything they may have missed, here are all of the Pokemon, in order, that we spotted in the trailer.

The opening shot of the first Detective Pikachu trailer takes place in Ryme City and there is a tremendous view with Pokemon and humans shuffling about together. That makes it a bit difficult to spot everything, but we see a Charmander, Dodrio and Bouffalant all mixed in with the crowd. There are also a number of flying Pokemon in this shot, including a Braviary on a ledge, as well as Comfey,

‘Grinch,’ ‘Girl in the Spider’s Web’ and the Do’s and Don’ts of Box Office Revivals

‘Grinch,’ ‘Girl in the Spider’s Web’ and the Do’s and Don’ts of Box Office Revivals
There are few things Hollywood loves more than a good revival. A familiar brand with a built-in fan base? Sold!

Even so, bringing back a recognizable property comes with risks. That’s a lesson illustrated last weekend at the box office. It was a tale of two reboots. Illumination and Universal’s “The Grinch,” the third adaptation of the classic Dr. Seuss Christmas tale, opened with a massive $66 million, but “The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” Sony’s sorta sequel to “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” faltered with an anemic $8 million.

Of course, it wasn’t exactly a battle of equals. One movie centers on a beloved character with a 60-year history, written by one of the most iconic and prolific children’s book authors. That kind of pedigree creates a prime opportunity for a studio hoping to cash in on a little nostalgia among families (especially around

The Girl In The Spider’S Web: A New Dragon Tattoo Story – Review

It’s reboot time once more, but this one’s not another entry in the horror genre, as the recent Halloween and Suspiria, but it does have a connection, though slight. The source flick doesn’t go back 40 years, merely seven. That’s when Hollywood decided there needed to be an English-language film adaptation of a book series that was an international sensation. Steig Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was a huge hit inspiring a film version of that and its two sequels in his native Sweden. Ah, but America could certainly make it into a monster hit, and even though that foreign language trilogy played here at the “art house” cinemas, Sony Studios brought in director David Fincher (Fight Club) and screenwriter Steve Zaillian (Searching For Bobby Fisher), and cast Bond himself Daniel Craig along with relative movie newcomer Rooney Mara. The results were…tepid. This

World War Z sequel aiming for June 2019 production start date

Now, we’ve been down this road before on a couple of occasions, so you may not want to get too excited just yet, but it seems the oft-delayed World War Z sequel may finally be about to escape Development Hell.

Speaking to Variety, producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner have revealed that a June 2019 production start date has been set, with both Brad Pitt and his Se7en, Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button director David Fincher still on board.

Kleiner went on to state that work continues on the screenplay for the follow-up to the 2013 zombie blockbuster, with Dennis Kelly (Utopia) rewriting an original draft from Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders).

The first World War Z shrugged aside production troubles to gross $540 million worldwide back in 2013, with the sequel announced almost immediately. However, it subsequently encountered a number of setbacks, the latest coming earlier this year when

David Fincher and Brad Pitt's World War Z 2 Starts Production Next Summer

Yes, the long-awaited World War Z sequel is still going to happen. David Fincher is officially set to direct the film and Brad Pitt will return to reprise his role.

Regardless of the production problems surrounding the first film, it actually turned out really good! I enjoyed it more than I thought I would and with Fincher directing the sequel I’m even more stoked about World War Z 2! He’s one of my favorite directors and I can’t wait to see what he does with this next chapter of the story!

We’ve now learned that Fincher will start shooting the sequel next summer! Producer Dede Gardner recently confirmed:

“We're starting to shoot in June.”

That’s exciting news for fans of the first film! We don’t know much about the story that the sequel will tell, but a previous report has said that "Fincher was

World War Z 2 Targets June Start Date, David Fincher Will Still Direct

It looks like World War Z 2 may finally be getting underway next year, but don't hold your breath. The sequel has been in development for a handful of years now and it's had a very difficult road in terms of actually getting cameras rolling. World War Z 2 has been delayed several times and, at this point, it's tough to get excited until the ball is good and truly rolling. However, producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner have offered an optimistic update on the status of the project.

The producing pair were recently in attendance at the premiere of Beautiful Boy. On the red carpet, they were asked to provide an update on World War Z 2. While they couldn't say much, Dede Gardner got the thing started by confidently stating that the movie will begin filming next summer. That is, assuming they don't hit another major snag along the way.

‘World War Z’ Sequel Update: Producers Confirm David Fincher and Brad Pitt Will Kick Off Filming in Summer 2019
World War Z” is finally gearing up to start production on the long-awaited sequel, or at least that’s the latest update provided by the film’s producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner. The producing duo confirmed to Variety on the “Beautiful Boy” red carpet that not only is David Fincher still attached to direct Brad Pitt in the film, but also cameras will start rolling in June 2019. The summer production most likely means the sequel is heading for a 2020 release.

Marc Forster directed the original “World War Z,” which Paramount Pictures released in theaters during summer 2013. The movie was based on Max Brooks’ 2006 novel of the same name and starred Brad Pitt as a former Un employee who travels the globe to find a cure to stop a massive zombie pandemic.

Helena Bonham Carter On Harvey Weinstein, #MeToo & The Difficulties Surrounding Eleanor Riese Drama ’55 Steps’
Helena Bonham Carter has lifted the lid on a number of controversial subjects including her relationship with Harvey Weinstein, #MeToo and the difficulties surrounding her latest film, 55 Steps.

In an interview with The Guardian, the Fight Club star called Weinstein a “bully” and said that she thought his behavior over the years was “chilling” but added that she never thought it would come back to haunt him.

“I found the way he treated certain people chilling – without any kind of respect. There were many times I disagreed with the way he behaved, and I don’t mean sexually,” she said. “There were times when Harvey asked me to do certain things, and I said no. I knew I was running a thin line. Standing up to him wasn’t an easy thing to do because I knew I could potentially lose work.”

One example she gave of working with

Michael Myers Menaces Cover of First Fangoria Return Issue

Fangoria is back in a big way. The horror magazine of the 80s and 90s is returning in print, and they're also producing brand new movies, with Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich in theaters earlier this year. Fangoria is ready to launch their first return issue. And stalking the cover is none other than Halloween bad boy Michael Myers, looking as menacing as ever.

For old school horror fans, it's a little hard to believe that Michael Myers and Fangoria are both back as Halloween quickly approached. The first issue of Fangoria's newly re-launched magazine is shipping out to those smart enough to have already subscribed. And the team behind getting this classic horror staple back up and running have shared the very first cover for the magazine's hugely anticipated revival.

Fangoria isn't necessarily reinventing itself. We get the classic art layout we all fondly remember being so fascinated with back in the day.

Bruce Willis and Brad Piit in 12 Monkeys on Blu-ray October 30th From Arrow Video

Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys (1995) starring Bruce Willis and Brad Piit will be available on Blu-ray October 30th From Arrow Video

The Future Is History

Following the commercial and critical success of The Fisher King, Terry Gilliam next feature would turn to science fiction and a screenplay by Janet and David Peoples inspired by Chris Marker’s classic short film La Jetée.

In 1996, a deadly virus is unleashed by a group calling themselves the Army of the Twelve Monkeys, destroying much of the world’s population and forcing survivors underground. In 2035, prisoner James Cole is chosen to go back in time and help scientists in their search for a cure.

Featuring an Oscar-nominated turn by Brad Pitt (Fight Club) as mental patient Jeffrey Goines, Twelve Monkeys would become Gilliam’s most successful film and is now widely regarded as a sci-fi classic. Arrow Films are proud to present the film in a stunning new restoration.

Will Smith, LeBron James, Jon Stewart Join Dave Chappelle for All-Star Standup Show

Will Smith, LeBron James, Jon Stewart Join Dave Chappelle for All-Star Standup Show
Dave Chappelle hosted a star-studded surprise comedy show at the Peppermint Club in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (Sept. 19). Joining the comic for a turn on stage was the multi-hyphenate Will Smith, basketball giant and recent L.A. transplant LeBron James, Jon Stewart, Michelle Wolf, Katt Williams, Michael Che and John Mayer, who provided background guitar work and the occasional zinger.

Few of those gathered at the private venue expected such high-wattage guests, though a mandatory lock-out of all mobile devices should have offered the first clue. Indeed, there was not a cell phone in sight as jokes delivered tackled such topics as the #MeToo movement, race and religion. “Comedy ‘Fight Club'” was how Chappelle described the night, which offered more than three-and-a-half hours of belly laughs. The show also had its serious moments. Jon Stewart made an impassioned plea for gun control; Williams sang a hopeful tune for
