Deadpool 2 Score Is First Ever to Get a Parental Advisory Warning
While fans wait for Deadpool 2 to hit theaters with sneak preview screenings tonight, the movie's score album by composer Tyler Bates is already making history. The soundtrack, which was released last Friday, became the first in history to be released with the "Parental Advisory: Explicit Content" label.

The score was arranged by composer Tyler Bates, who has previously provided the score for Watchmen, Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Deadpool 2 director David Leitch's first two films, John Wick and Atomic Blonde.

Sean Gunn Says “No Plans” For The Belko Experiment Sequel…Yet

The Belko Experiment, arguably the scrappy underdog of 2016’s film selection, proved to be a rare cinematic treat – Office Space meets Battle Royale, as our own Matt Donato so aptly put it.

Sandwiched between Guardians of the Galaxy and its rip-roaring sequel, The Belko Experiment also lent James Gunn the chance to write and produce a tight-knit thriller, the likes of which we haven’t seen from the filmmaker since his days on Slither. He’s about to circle back to the genre thanks to his plum horror gig with Universal and Elizabeth Banks, but what about the chances of a true sequel to The Belko Experiment?

That very question was posed to Gunn’s younger brother, Sean Gunn (Marty Espenscheid in Tbe), during a recent interview with Screen Geek, to which he replied:

I don’t know. The movie was, I guess, a little bit of a success, but

Elizabeth Banks Set To Star in a New James Gunn-Produced Horror Film

When James Gunn isn't working on Guardians of the Galaxy and other Marvel movie stuff, he's producing fun horror movie projects. Last year he produced the crazy movie The Belko Experiment and this year he's got another horror film in the pipeline.

The new film doesn't have a title, but Elizabeth Banks (Slither) is set to star in the movie! The movie is being directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive) from a script written by Brian and Mark Gunn. I think it's awesome that Gunn works with his family on these film projects.

The movie is being produced to the H Collective and it will start production this Spring. James Gunn had this to say in a statement:

"Elizabeth and I have been on the same artistic page since we first met when she auditioned for Slither back in 2005. She’s since remained one of my best friends in the world,

Variety is reporting that The CW’s Charmed has found the first of its three sisters, with Melonie Diaz (The Belko Experiment, Fruitvale Station) cast as Mel, “a passionate, outspoken activist who loses her way in the wake of family tragedy.”

Executive produced by Jennie Snyder Urman (Jane the Virgin), the new Charmed is described as a “fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series which centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.”

Diaz’s casting comes hot on the heels of Ser’Darius Blain (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), who joined the pilot earlier this week in the role of Galvin, boyfriend to Mel’s sister Macy.

The Nastiest Movie Moments of 2017

Ben Robins on the nastiest movie moments of 2017…

It’s been a banner year for fairly disgusting things on-screen. No real guesses as to why, but we’re not here to slave over the reasons. We’re here to simply recount, and to celebrate.

From FrightFest-backed horrors, to gonzo arthouse dealings and even the occasional indie weepy, this year’s rundown of the grimiest and grisliest goings-on in film is actually, for the first time in a while, a little over-stuffed. And it’s not all just visceral gore either, 2017 saw a whole bunch of seriously effective psychological thrillers throwing their hat in the ring too, not to mention the occasional bit of dark humour. So without much further ado, and in no particular order…

*The following may contain spoilers*

Think you’re having a bad day? Just wait until you see this new and blood-drenched clip for Mayhem, Joe Lynch’s corporate thriller that places Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) in the thick of an epic office brawl.

Arriving on the eve of release – Mayhem is due to hit VOD and Digital HD tomorrow, November 10th – the promo below is all about Yeun’s cubicle slave, Derek Cho, who takes up arms alongside Samara Weaving (Ash vs. Evil Dead, The Babysitter) after being framed for corporate espinoage.

As luck would have it, those allegations come just as a mysterious virus sweeps through the office, reducing everyone in its vicinity into a blood-thirsty maniac. And that’s when Mayhem really begins to live up to its evocative title. After all, what else did you expect from the director behind Wrong Turn 2?

“My next picture could be a remake of Howard’s End…” Greg McLean ‘Jungle’ Interview

Out to own this week is Jungle, the knuckle-gnawing true story of adventurer Yossi Ghinsberg. Ghinsberg was stranded in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, where he faced a terrifying ordeal battling the elements for his very survival.

Daniel Radcliffe plays Yossi in the movie, which is directed by Wolf Creek‘s Greg McLean. We sat down for a chat about raging rapids, rugged Radcliffes and the inhospitable climes of Wolf Creek Season 2…

Thn: The film is something of a departure for you. What drew you to the project?

Greg McLean: I wanted to make a movie where people were trying to save a life rather than take it. (Laughs) A lot of my films have been horror films. I thought the true story was incredible, it was very inspiring. When I first read it I thought what these guys did and how it happened was very moving and

‘Jungle’ Review: Harry Potter Meets Werner Herzog in a Feverish Survival Story

‘Jungle’ Review: Harry Potter Meets Werner Herzog in a Feverish Survival Story
In the years since hanging up his quidditch broom, Daniel Radcliffe has blazed a surprisingly adventurous trail, devoting himself to risky projects that stray far from the beaten path, some of them quite literally. For the second time in the last 18 months, the former “Harry Potter” star has wandered off into the wilderness, following the miraculously inventive “Swiss Army Man” with a true-life survival story about a restless Israeli kid who wound up stranded by himself in an uncharted stretch of the Amazon. And while “Jungle” glaringly lacks the flair and depth of feeling that defined Radcliffe’s previous stroll through the great outdoors, it’s somehow even more disgusting than “Swiss Army Man,” a movie in which the actor plays a corpse whose farts are so explosive that they propel his body across the surface of the ocean like a jet ski.

“I was desperate to escape the well-worn path,

Jungle Review

Once an actor lands that iconic role that catapults him or her to mainstream stardom, few are ever able to truly escape its shadow. Yet, despite playing The Boy Who Lived in eight films over the course of a decade, former Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has all but left Hogwart’s behind. In just a few short years, Radcliffe’s work in offbeat — to put it mildly — releases like Swiss Army Man and Horns has proven his willingness to take on challenging projects and provides sufficient evidence that he’s much more than the bespectacled child who won the world’s heart way back in 2001. Now, his latest film, Jungle, continues that string of intriguing and divisive choices.

Based on a true story, the movie follows Yossi Ghinsberg (Radcliffe) and a pair of globe-trotting friends (Joel Jackson and Alex Russell) as they embark on a journey through the Bolivian jungle.

New Mayhem Images Tease A Bloody Office Brawl

If you’ve been wondering what fan favourite actor Steven Yeun has been up to since the infamous and brutal death of his character on The Walking Dead, wonder no more. Here he is, gloriously and deservedly front and centre in a new batch of photos for an upcoming action-horror movie about workplace frustrations, and how to work them out. It’s called Mayhem and is directed by Joe Lynch (Everly), from a script written by Matias Caruso (in his feature length debut).

If the pics below put you in mind of 2016’s The Belko Experiment, you’re not incorrect. Both focus their action around violence between people trapped in an office environment for an extended period of time. However, there is one important difference.

Where The Belko Experiment is steeped in conspiracy and suspicion, Mayhem could not be simpler. The film sees an infection sweep through the offices of Towers & Smythe Consulting,

Interview: Director Greg McLean on Collaborating with Daniel Radcliffe and the Real-Life Horrors That Inspired Jungle

  • DailyDead
This Friday, Momentum Pictures is set to release Jungle, the latest from Greg McLean (The Belko Experiment, Wolf Creek 1 and 2), which tells the real-life story of Yossi Ghinsberg (played by Daniel Radcliffe), who traveled to the Amazon rainforest during the 1980s, and had to contend with the brutal dangers lurking all around him and his group of fellow travelers as they made their way through the unforgiving titular locale. Shortly after surviving his ordeal, Ghinsberg wrote a book about his experiences, which is also entitled Jungle, and McLean discussed in a recent interview with Daily Dead how he first discovered the autobiographical tale and knew that he needed to adapt it for the big screen.

McLean also chatted about what made Daniel Radcliffe perfect to portray Jungle’s hero, the challenges they all faced during the ambitious shoot, and more. Look for Jungle in theaters and on VOD on Friday,

‘Mayhem’ Trailer: All Hell Breaks Loose During a Bad Day at the Office
Remember The Belko Experiment? It came out earlier this year and was a B-movie set in an office building about employees who were forced to kill each other at the behest of a mysterious voice who locked them inside. I found that film to be an ugly and largely pointless exercise in brutality, but if that didn’t scratch your […]

Movie Review – Jungle (2017)

Jungle, 2017.

Directed by Greg McLean.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Thomas Kretschmann, Alex Russel, Joel Jackson, Lily Sullivan, and Yasmin Kassim.

Synopsis:

A group of friends join a guide for a trek into the Bolivian jungle, searching for an Indian village. The men soon realize that the jungle is a difficult place to be.

Seeing as Daniel Radcliffe (Aka the boy wizard Harry Potter) hit a grand slam with his similarly themed but far less reality grounded performance in Swiss Army Man (a severely overlooked and underrated film, easily the best of 2016), it’s a no-brainer that he was attracted to the script for director Greg McLean’s (Wolf Creek and his first 2017 film, The Belko Experiment) survivalist biopic Jungle, a genre feature about a tightknit band of close friends and a shady travel guide exploring uncharted Bolivian territory for pleasure, treasure, and a hidden Indian tribe. However, heading back to the
