New Poster For The Meg Makes Some Pretty Big Waves

Listen, if the prospect of seeing Jason Statham do battle with a prehistoric super-shark doesn’t have you giddy with anticipation, then you just don’t know compelling cinema. Simple as that.

While it won’t be the talk of awards season next year, except maybe the Razzies, The Meg has mindless blockbuster written all over it, and we couldn’t be more excited to check the film out in a few months’ time. I mean, let’s face it, summer just isn’t the same without an excellent subaquatic fright flick, whether it be Steven Spielberg’s trendsetting 1975 release Jaws, Alexander Aja’s nauseatingly gory Piranha 3D, or Jaume Collet-Serra’s surprisingly sturdy The Shallows. For some reason, we love watching man-eating marine life do the deed, namely chomping on a chunk of human viscera, and in that regard, The Meg certainly looks like it’ll deliver the goods.

Sam Raimi and Alexandre Aja Are Developing an Alligator Horror Movie Called Crawl

With Paramount Pictures finding success in the horror genre with their most recent film A Quiet Place, they are now moving forward with a new low-budget horror movie called Crawl. The movie is being produced by Sam Raimi and directed by Alexandre Aja.

The film is described as a self-contained thriller that "centers on a young woman who, while struggling to save her father during a Category 5 hurricane, finds herself trapped inside a flooding house and fighting for her life against Florida's most savage and feared predators."

Those savage a feared predators are alligators. That certainly sounds like it would be an intense situation to be in! Aja wrote the most recent draft of the script and I'm curious to see how the movie turns out. Aja has made some entertaining and wild films in his career and this seems like the kind of film project that is right up his ally.

Alexandre Aja and Sam Raimi team for horror-thriller Crawl

Paramount Pictures is looking to replicate the success of A Quiet Place with another low-budget horror-thriller, with the studio fast-tracking Crawl from director Alexandre Aja and producers Sam Raimi and Craig Flores.

Originally penned by Shawn and Michael Rasmussen, with rewrites from Aja, Crawl follows “a young woman who, while struggling to save her father during a Category 5 hurricane, finds herself trapped inside a flooding house and fighting for her life against Florida’s most savage and feared predators.”

The project had previously been in development at Lakeshore Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures before making its way to Paramount. Pre-production is underway, with filming slated to take place this year.

In addition to Crawl, Raimi is also attached as producer on a remake of The Grudge, which has Nicolas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother) directing.

First Reaction To The Meg Calls It This Summer’s Most Fun Guilty Pleasure

Look, if the prospect of seeing Jason Statham go to war with a prehistoric super-shark doesn’t have you sweating with anticipation, then you just don’t know compelling cinema. Simple as that. While it won’t be the talk of awards season next year, except maybe the Razzies, The Meg has got brainless blockbuster written all over it, and we couldn’t be more excited to check it out in just a few months’ time.

International Trailer For The Meg Adds A Little More Bite

Look, if the prospect of seeing Jason Statham go to war with a prehistoric super-shark doesn’t have you sweating with anticipation, then you don’t know compelling cinema. While it won’t be the talk of awards season next year, except maybe the Razzies, The Meg has got brainless blockbuster written all over it, and we couldn’t be more ecstatic about it.

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. unleashed the first trailer for Jon Turteltaub’s action horror pic, and it delivered the teeth and testosterone. Now, the studio has smelt the blood in the water and has gone in for the kill, releasing an international preview for the adaptation of Steve Alten’s New York Times bestselling book. It doesn’t feature a whole lot of new footage, but there is a bit and it definitely dives deeper into the film’s plot.

Listen to the Corpse Club Discuss The Ruins and Piranha 3D on a New Episode of Daily Dead’s Podcast

Vacation is supposed to be the time of your life, not the fight for your life, but that's exactly what happens for the unlucky characters in The Ruins (2008) and Piranha 3D (2010), the subjects of a new episode of Daily Dead's official podcast.

Vacations get vicious on a new episode of Daily Dead's official podcast, as co-hosts Heather Wixson, Scott Drebit, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James put on their sun screen and gather around the microphones to discuss two very different vacation-gone-wrong horror movies: The Ruins (2008) and Piranha 3D (2010). The co-hosts discuss the under-your-skin scares and palpable paranoia of Carter Smith's feature film debut, as well as the underwater horrors and twisted sense of humor in Alexandre Aja's 2010 horror comedy. The water's a little bloody, but we promise it feels just fine, so sit back, relax, and enjoy a new episode of the Corpse Club... just don't get too close to the flowers!

Movie News: Adam Sandler to Star in 'Uncut Gems'; Watch Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish in First 'Night School' Trailer

Uncut Gems: Adam Sandler recently flexed his dramatic chops in The Meyerowitz Stories (above) and soon he will be teaming with Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie, the filmmakers behind the acclaimed dramatic thriller Good Time. No other details have been revealed yet, beyond the title (Uncut Gems), though we hear that production is scheduled to begin this fall. Martin Scorsese will serve as one of the executive producers.

Ninth Saw Movie Reportedly In The Works With Jigsaw Scribes

Contrary to popular belief (and common sense?), Saw: The Final Chapter did not signal the end of Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate’s cult horror franchise. And neither did Jigsaw, it seems.

Sources close to Bloody Disgusting suggest Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D, Sorority Row) are currently in the midst of developing a ninth Saw movie, though it’s unclear if this continuation will be angled as a direct sequel to Jigsaw or The Final Chapter – or something else entirely.

What we can tell you, however, is that Jigsaw helmers Michael and Peter Spierig will not be returning to the director’s chair, meaning the Powers That Be will likely be sending out the feelers to find a potential replacement(s), if they haven’t already.

Buoyed by the return of John Kramer (Tobin Bell), Jigsaw scored $102 million off the back of a $10 million production budget back in October,

Rick Famuyiwa To Direct Former David Fincher Project ‘Black Hole’

David Fincher has circled/almost directed a lot of movies in his time, and eight years ago, we ran down The 5 Lost David Fincher Projects We’d Still Love To See One Day. Making the cut was “Black Hole,” the adaptation of Charles Burns‘ acclaimed novel. Plenty of talent has attempted to wrangle the material, with Alexandre Aja (“Haute Tension,” “Piranha 3D”) originally attached to direct, while Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary tried and failed to write a script that pleased Fincher.

Watching the 'Jigsaw' Twist Unfold Is an Existential Experience

Watching the 'Jigsaw' Twist Unfold Is an Existential Experience
[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Jigsaw]

Jigsaw, the seventh sequel in the seemingly deathless Saw horror series, enters theaters with a lot of baggage. And, to be fair, co-directors Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers, Predestination) and co-writers Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D, Sorority Row) do half-heartedly downplay some of the more tedious elements that have come to define the earlier Saw movies.

For starters, the "torture" aspect of the fatal death-trap "tests" that serial killer John "Jigsaw" Kramer (franchise staple Tobin Bell) puts his victims through is taken down several notches. Jigsaw features far fewer — and...

The Game Begins In Two New Jigsaw TV Spots

After taking a lengthy – and much needed – hiatus from cinemas, the Saw franchise is finally ready to once again shed gallons of blood with its latest installment, Jigsaw. But despite featuring a returning Tobin Bell who’s set to reprise the role of John Kramer in some capacity, all signs point toward a copycat at play.

Who that may be remains unknown, of course, but it’s important to note that neither Costas Mandylor nor Cary Elwes are set to feature here, so either there’s a new player in town after all, or this series is about to take an unexpected supernatural turn. Regardless, we can’t wait to see what the final twist will be and now, with the film set to arrive later this month, Lionsgate has begun to ramp up the promotion.
