Mike Flanagan’s Before I Wake Coming to Netflix in the Us on January 5th

  • DailyDead
Horror fans have been looking forward to seeing Mike Flanagan's Before I Wake since the film was teased in trailers back in 2015, but bankruptcy issues at Relativity Media delayed and ultimately brought the movie's release to a halt. Since that time, Flanagan directed two well-received films for Netflix, and the streaming service has now revealed that they will bring Before I Wake out of film purgatory and into the warm glow of the TV screen.

Netflix revealed the exciting Before I Wake news in their full announcement of titles being added to their streaming lineup in January of 2018. Starring Jacob Tremblay, Thomas Jane, and Kate Bosworth, Before I Wake will be available to watch on the streaming service beginning Friday, January 5th, marking its first official release in the Us (it was previously released internationally, including in the UK by Netflix).

Other titles being added to Netflix (in the Us) include 30 Days of Night,

  • Indiewire
Say this for 2018: It can’t be any worse than 2017, right? (Spoiler: It totally can.)

When good TV goes bad: how Sons of Anarchy took us all for a ride

After two seasons of all-American biker shenanigans, the show decamped to Ireland, where every scene became a toe-curling exercise in stereotyping

There has always been something faintly hilarious about Hells Angels. Perhaps it’s the unholy combination of dodgy leatherwear, comedy helmets and unrestrained beards, but they always look a little bit “midlife crisis spinning wildly out of control”, a little bit “minor members of the Def Leppard road crew”. It’s for this reason that Hells Angels are almost always deployed filmically for comic effect nowadays; indeed, up until recently the last major Hells Angels on-screen moment was 2007’s execrable midlife-crisis comedy Wild Hogs.

I say “until recently” because, of course, one year after Wild Hogs tried its hardest to ruin the biker gang’s mystique for generations to come, along came Sons of Anarchy to show us all the true face of the American Hells Angel, a serious,

Clifford the Big Red Dog movie finds a director

Back in July of last year it was revealed that Paramount Pictures was developing a live-action/CG hybrid adaptation of Norman Bridwell’s Clifford the Big Red Dog book series, and now Variety is reporting that the project has found a director.

Walt Becker, whose previous credits include Van Wilder, Wild Hogs, Old Dogs and Alvin and the Chipmunks, is set to helm the movie, while Ellen Rapoport has come on board to rewrite the script from Justin Malen.

Clifford the Big Red Dog launched in 1963 and revolves around the adventures of a young girl called Emily Elizabeth and her pet dog Clifford, who just happens to be 25 feet tall, and bright red. The books have spawned two animated series, while Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment spent several years in development on an animated feature before the rights ended up at Paramount.

The Classic 80s Film Flight Of The Navigator is Being Remade with the Writer of Lucifer and 11.22.63

The classic 1986 sci-fi film Flight of the Navigator was one of many films that I loved watching when I was a kid. A remake of the film has been in and out of development for years and it looks like it's going back into development with a new writer. 

According to THR, Lionsgate and The Henson Co. has hired Joe Henderson to write the script. Henderson is best known for his work on Lucifer, 11.22.63, and White Collar.  The guy has done some great work in TV, so it gives me hope that maybe he'll do a decent job with Flight of the Navigator.

Over the years, Brad Copeland (Arrested DevelopmentWild Hogs) was attached to the project as was Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, who were set to write the script. Things obviously didn't work out in these instances. 

The story follows a 12-year-old boy who gets abducted by an alien spacecraft.

Paramount Pictures Launches New Production Division Headed by Brian Robbins

Paramount Pictures Launches New Production Division Headed by Brian Robbins
Looking to ramp up production, Paramount is launching a Paramount Players Division with veteran producer and executive Brian Robbins in charge.

Paramount Pictures Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos, who took over the studio in March, made the announcement Wednesday. Robbins will work with Viacom’s Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central and Bet operations to generate projects while the new division focuses on contemporary properties.

Robbins founded digital media company Awesomeness and headed it up for five years. He will serve as president of Paramount Players, reporting to Gianopulos and joining the studio later this month.

The studio is teamed with Tom Cruise for a sixth “Mission: Impossible,” opening July

Will Ferrell Lines Up 'City Slickers'-Esque North Pole Comedy

Will Ferrell can do broad comedy in his sleep, but lately, he's been developing projects that potentially offer him a chance to show off some different acting muscles. He's got "Russ & Roger Go Beyond" brewing, a movie that will see him play schlockmaster filmmaker Russ Meyer, and now comes an arctic comedy said to be in the vein of "City Slickers" (cool) and "Wild Hogs" (uh, okay). Sony Pictures is putting together an adaptation of Guy Lawson’s The New York Times Magazine article “Ice Pack: An Insurance Salesman and a Doctor Walk Into a Bar, and End Up at the North Pole,” with Ferrell slated to star. It tells the wild, true story about insurance salesman Ralph Plaisted, doctor Art Aufderhiede, Honda dealer Walter Pederson, geography teacher Jerry Pitzel, and French Canadian Jean Luc Bombardier, who embarked on an expedition to the North Pole, despite failing a psychological stress test.

14 terrible films that made obscene amounts of money – and only two have Adam Sandler in

14 terrible films that made obscene amounts of money – and only two have Adam Sandler in
Bad films are part of the movie-making process. For every Citizen Kane, there are dozens of Law Abiding Citizens; for every The Exorcist, hundreds of Exorcist II: The Heretics.

They're all meant to do badly, because they are bad. But sometimes, there's an aberration. Sometimes... they're successful. Very successful. Very, very successful.

Here, then, are 14 of our favourite least favourite films to ever make studio heads' eyes turn into little dollar signs (in order of awfulness).

14. Anger Management (2003)

Rotten Tomatoes ranking: 43%

Production budget: $75 million

Worldwide box office: $195 million

Anger Management spluttered back into like in 2012 as a TV vehicle for snake blood-drinking "winner" Charlie Sheen. It lasted two seasons: the first had 10 episodes, the second 90, all so the show could go into syndication. As soon as it hit its 100th episode, it was immediately canned.

13. Meet The Fockers (2004)

Rotten Tomatoes ranking: 38%

Production budget: $80 million

Worldwide box office: $516 million

First trailer for Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip

The first trailer for Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip has arrived online. Alvin (Justin Long), Theodore (Matthew Gray Gubler) and Simon (Jesse McCartney) are all back for the fourth installment in the Alvin and the Chipmunks film series, following 2011’s Chipwrecked.

Jason Lee, who will be reprising his role as Dave, will be joined by such newcomers to the series as Tony Hale and Bella Thorne. Wild Hogs director Walt Becker has helmed the film, while Mrs. Doubtfire writer Randi Mayem Singer has penned the script.

In The Road Chip, the trio of talking chipmunks set off on a road trip to New York City to stop their owner Dave from proposing to his girlfriend, as they think it means he will dump them. The trailer shows Alvin, Theodore and Simon singing the hit Bruno Mars song “Uptown Funk,” in their naturally high-pitched voices.
