‘The Meg’ Trailer: Jason Statham Battles History’s Biggest Shark

‘The Meg’ Trailer: Jason Statham Battles History’s Biggest Shark
Shark movies — these days, they tend to appeal to a certain niche viewer, one who watched “Shark Week” and thought, “I want that, but in a movie theater.” “The Meg,” starring Jason Statham, however, may be able to move beyond that viewer base with its hint at a slightly more meta take on the shark film.

Featuring the just-go-with-it premise that the prehistoric megalodon did not, in fact, go extinct around 2 million years ago, and has instead been discovered off the coast of China, “The Meg” is based on Steve Alten’s 1997 book, “The Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror.”

The trailer, cut to a tone-setting “Beyond the Sea” and with the tagline “Chomp on this,” begins with the occupants of an underwater marine research vessel encountering the meg, and proceeds to preview the inevitable movement of the giant shark towards human-infested beaches, with Statham filling the role of researcher-turned-lead-shark-fighter.

Flamin' Hot Cheetos Creator Is Getting a Biopic

Fox Searchlight has emerged victorious in a bidding war for a tasty new biopic, centering on the man who created the Flamin' Hot Cheetos, Richard Montanez. The studio reportedly beat out multiple studio bidders for the project in what was described as a "highly-competitive sale." While no director is attached at this time, Lewis Collick has been set to write the script, based on the pitch he developed with producer DeVon Franklin and Montanez.

Richard Montanez was born the son of an immigrant who grew up as a migrant farm worker in the grape fields of Southern California. He ended up getting a job as a janitor at the Frito-Lay plant in Rancho Cucamonga in 1976, after dropping out of high school. One day he watched a video from the Frito-Lay president that asked Montanez and all his fellow employees to, "act like an owner," which he saw as an opportunity to do something different.

The Top Uses of Bobby Darin’s “Beyond the Sea” in Movies or TV

Bobby Darin shouldn’t be called a flash in the pan but unfortunately his life didn’t last all that long and so it might be a phrase that can be applied. But thanks to the sheer veracity of his music, especially the song Beyond the Sea, and its popularity throughout the world that flash was more like a miniature supernova going off when it came to his career. He was the guy that could do it all, from writing songs to performing them to acting and even playing multiple instruments. Yet he suffered from rheumatic fever when he was young and

We in the states have enjoyed biographies since the start of cinema, particularly those focusing in on popular stars. And of the show-biz bios, those of singers seem to attract film goers. In the late 1940’s Larry Parks was a sensation in The Jolson Story, so much so that he stepped in for Al in a sequel Jolson Sings Again. In more recent years Bobby Darrin’s life inspired Beyond The Sea and Jamie Foxx nabbed an Oscar as Mr. Charles in Ray. Surely this same genre has been done in other countries, say…France.

The Scariest Serial Killers on TV, According to Critics — IndieWire Survey

The Scariest Serial Killers on TV, According to Critics — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Who is the scariest serial killer on TV? You define “scary.” Old and current shows fair game.

Landry from “Friday Night Lights.”

Damian Holbrook (@damianholbrook), TV Guide Magazine

Ok, so he wasn’t necessarily a serial killer, but “Nip/Tuck’s” The Carver gave me a serious case of the scareds. After his first appearance near the end of Season 2, the porcelain-masked serial-slashing maniac who was all about slicing up hot people (because “beauty is a curse,” of course!) ran amok in Season 3 and the amount of series-regular characters he went after was kind of unprecedented.

Dancing Deputy Sings to Elderly Woman in Shelter to Ease Her Fears During Hurricane Irma: ‘We Need More Smiles’
A Florida deputy danced and sang to ease the nerves of an elderly woman frightened by Hurricane Irma—showing residents a tender moment during a time of heartbreak and devastation.

Deputy James Froelich of the Osceola County Sheriff’s Department was walking around a storm shelter set up at the Osceola Council On Aging Senior Center on September 10, when he noticed a “nice lady” sitting on the edge of her cot, looking saddened.

“She told me she was worried about her house, her cat, the people at the shelter and what the storm was going to do,” Deputy Froelich, 41, tells People.

Description of the Aquaman footage shown at Comic-Con

Warner Bros. held its big DC Extended Universe panel at Comic-Con today, which brought us a brand new trailer for Justice League [see here], a passionate denial from Ben Affleck that his time as Batman is coming to an end [see here], and confirmation that the next batch of Dceu movies will include Shazam, Suicide Squad 2, The Batman, Justice League Dark, Flashpoint, Wonder Woman 2, Green Lantern Corps and Batgirl [see here].

However, before then, Jason Momoa took to the stage, complete with trident, to unveil the very first footage from Aquaman; it hasn’t made its way online, but EW has a description of the scene:

The clip shared begins with two fishermen on open water, as a foreign-language version of “Beyond the Sea” plays on their radio. Suddenly, something big grabs their fishing pole and starts to pull – first lightly, and then the whole boat gets pulled through the water. Looking down, they see gigantic undersea creatures,

Connie Francis on Surviving Rape and Losing the Love of Her Life: ‘After All These Years, I Still Love to Sing’
Her breezy pop hits and beach party movies made Connie Francis one of the biggest stars of the ’50s and early ’60s, but her life has been far from sunny.

Relive The Highlights of Game Of Thrones Season 6 With These Gifs

By: Aaron Goins

The sixth season of Game of Thrones was full of huge moments: epic battles, character deaths, betrayals, alliances, even a little time travel. There were too many great moments to list them all, so I picked ten, one from each episode. Spoilers ahead!

Brienne To The Rescue

In the season opener “The Red Woman,” we were shown that Jon Snow was very much dead, and they were going to leave him that way for a bit. We saw a lot of death and a change of leadership in Dorne. Melisandre was revealed...in a different way than we had seen her revealed before.

But the moment that makes the list is Brienne fulfilling her desire to protect and serve another Stark. She showed up just in time to save Sansa and Theon from the fate of being brought back to the maniac Ramsay Bolton. With the help of Podrick,

10 Rubbish Movies Directed By Great Actors

Warner Bros. Pictures

For a lot of actors, becoming a director is a long held ambition. The reason that this transition from in-front-of-the-camera talent to behind-the-scenes wrangler became the basis of the Entourage movie is because it’s become something of a Hollywood cliché.

Sometimes, this career switch can have brilliant results. But, seemingly more often, it goes really badly. Clint Eastwood is a prime example of both camps: Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River and Gran Torino are awesome, but they sit right next to J. Edgar, Jersey Boys and Changeling in his filmography.

Not all actors are lucky enough to get this many chances to prove themselves in the director’s chair. Some have their one big shot, totally blow it, and retreat quietly back to acting roles. Here are the worst of the worst, then, from great actors who tried their hand as directors…

The Truth is Out There: How The X-Files Forever Changed Genre Television

  • DailyDead
[Originally appeared in Deadly Magazine #5] In 1993, The X-Files premiered on Fox, forever changing genre television, and after 20 years, its influence is still felt. No series since The X-Files has even come close to creating such incredibly nuanced and compelling storytelling than what Chris Carter’s series delivered each week for nine seasons.

What made The X-Files so remarkable was that it hit the ground running from its first episode and maintained that momentum. While Seasons 8 and 9 aren’t remembered fondly by fans, I’d argue that the storytelling still remained strong until the series finale in May 2002.

Known generally for its overarching alien and governmental conspiracy plots, The X-Files always managed to find clever and unusual ways to celebrate so many horror and sci-fi tropes, much like its predecessors (The Twilight Zone and Kolchak: The Night Stalker influenced Carter when he was first conceiving the series in the early ’90’s.)

The conspiracy plot gave The X-Files
