Fantaspoa 2018: Cinestate Acquires Skull - The Mask From FantasMercado Market

Some good news for fans of horror flicks coming out of the Iberoamerican region. The folks at Cinestate are fine for many reasons. They are fine because they are one of the companies behind festival faves like Bone Tomahawk, Brawl in Cell Block 99 and lately Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich. They were recently very fine because they have resurrected the beloved Fangoria magazine. Now they have achieved a extra level of fineness after acquiring Skull - A Máscara de Anhangá by filmmaker Kapel Furman from Brazil.    Skull was presented during FantasMercado, the first coproduction market at Fantaspoa.

10 Facts You Didn’t Know about the Movie “Bone Tomahawk”

Bone Tomahawk is one of Kurt Russell’s lesser known movies but it’s not one of his lesser movies overall. It’s a search and rescue film that eventually becomes more of a search and hope to survive kind of ordeal. When three people are taken from the town of Bright Hope by a cannibalistic tribe the sheriff, his deputy, and two others go searching for them. What they find though is a horrific sight as the cannibals and other threats make themselves known throughout the trip and continually harry the group until they’re finally captured and taken by the cannibals to

Nic Cage’s Cannes cult thriller Mandy secures distribution

Playing in The Director’s Fortnight at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Nicolas Cage’s revenge drama Mandy has now secured distribution in all international territories, according to Xyz Films.

Directed by Panos Cosmatos, Mandy is set in the wilderness of 1983, where Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) must deal with the fallout of an unhinged religious cult that have attacked his family. The film also stars Andrea Riseborough, and Linus Roache.

Rjle Films will release Mandy in the Us later this year, with Variety reporting similar sales deals for worldwide distributors. Nothing has been confirmed as far as the UK is concerned, but we’ll keep you posted.

Let us know what you think in the comments section below. Does Mandy have the potential to be this year’s Bone Tomahawk, or have we been burned by Cage’s Dtv output over the last few years to really care?

4 Upcoming Non-Blockbuster Films That Deserve Your Excitement

Samuel Brace with four upcoming non-blockbuster films that deserve your excitement…

It’s particularly easy in this business to merely focus on the high profile movies that will make serious dents at the box office, or that will reap the most plaudits come awards season, but to limit one’s attention to only these categories is a mistake. There is far more to cinema than the big blockbusters and “please-love-me” biopics. Marvel and Star Wars occupy a significant amount of our cinematic bandwidth – often for good reason – but their yearly efforts shouldn’t consume every last inch of our attention. With this in mind, I wanted to spend, if you will allow it, my little corner of the internet shedding some light – for those who don’t know – on four upcoming non-blockbuster films that deserve our excitement. These are films outside of the mainstream, these are films that could be hit or miss,

Ridley Scott is in Talks To Direct an Adaptation of the Comic Queen And Country

Looks like Ridley Scott has found a comic book that he wants to adapt into a feature film. The director is currently in talks with Fox to direct a film based on Queen and Country, the Eisner award-winning graphic novel by Greg Rucka.

Queen and Country is a spy thriller that is set in a fictional British Secret Intelligence Service. The story centers on an operative named Tara Chace, "a top British intelligence agent who is used as bait to draw out an international terrorist after an attack in London."

I've never read the comic, but I love a good spy thriller! This seems like it will be a great project for Scott, who most recently directed the fantastic film All The Money in the World. Scott has also been in talks with Disney to direct The Merlin Saga.

If he has to make a choice between Queen and Country and The Merlin Saga,

AMC Networks bids for full control of Rlj Entertainment

Rlj channels include Acorn TV and Umc.

Cable operator AMC Networks has put in a $16m offer to acquire full control of Rlj Entertainment.

The move to buy outstanding shares of Robert L. Johnson’s company comes 16 months after AMC Networks invested $65m in the form of loans (which have since grown to an aggregate of $78m) as part of a strategic partnership.

AMC and Johnson currently own approximately 26% and 47% of the outstanding shares of Rlj Entertainment common stock, respectively.

The proposal involves paying $4.25 per share in cash, with the goal of turning Rlj Entertainment into a privately held subsidiary.

What a time to be alive! In our year of the lord 2018, Fangoria is coming back from its untimely digital death with a new print(!) magazine and plans to move into producing film, podcast, and horror novels.

Fangoria rises from the grave

Tony Sokol Feb 16, 2018

Horror favourite Fangoria magazine is to return to its pulpy roots...

Fangoria is kind of like the Ramones of horror magazines. Fun, funny, influential and completely accessible, their interviewers asked pertinent questions and the images were filled with gore, suspense and wit. Every horror fan has at least one copy, that they show, and probably a bunch buried somewhere. Quentin Tarantino has boxes of copies, I’m sure. Most covered in some kind of protective plastic like he’s preserving a dead Pharaoh for a movie he’ll never get around to making. But Fangoria Lives. Cinestate, Dallas-based entertainment company founded by movie producer Dallas Sonnier (Bone Tomahawk, Brawl In Cell Block 99) has bought the magazine, and they are set to restore it to its glory days as a print publication.

Fangoria will have a new Editor-In-Chief, film writer Phil Nobile Jr., who was Editor-At-Large for the website Birth.

Fangoria Horror Magazine is Being Brought Back From the Dead!

I used to read Fangoria Magazine all the time as a teenager. I was always on the hunt for new and different horror films and Fangoria was always my best source. I also enjoyed all of the articles, scoops, and gory photos from the horror movie scene.

The magazine was launched in 1979 and it sold its last print run in 2015. Well, thanks to Cinestate, the multimedia company behind Bone Tomahawk, Brawl in Cell Block 99 and the upcoming remake of Puppet Master, the magazine will rise from the grave and move forward under new leadership with a quarterly print publication. The sci-fi magazine Starlog and another horror magazine Gorezone, are also part of the deal. Here's a little promo video teasing the return:

Eyebrows were raised when it was announced that South Korea will submit the as-yet-unreleased espionage thriller The Age of Shadows for Oscar consideration instead of Cannes hits The Handmaiden and The Wailing.

Hostiles review

Christian Bale leads a sterling cast in the brooding western, Hostiles. Here's our review of a beautiful-looking but gloomy film...

Guilt and anger run deep in Hostiles, a raw, painfully deliberate western from writer-director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Into The Furnace). Taking place at the tail end of the 19th century, it’s a smouldering bonfire of a movie seemingly at pains to draw parallels with the violence and racial divisions that still divide modern America.

The Best Movies You May Have Missed in 2017

Rafael Motamayor lists the best movies that may have went under your radar this year…

2017 was a great year for movies, and you can’t convince me of the contrary! We had so many wonderful movies this year, that even thinking about the “best ones” has been nearly impossible. Even outside of the typical Oscar movies that end up on most critics’ lists (myself included), we’ve had a lot of good blockbusters compared to last year – and most if not all superhero movies this year have been great!

In the spirit of list-making season, I decided to write about some great movies that you probably missed this year. From Vince Vaughn crushing bones, to a horror-musical about mermaids, there’s something for everyone.

December 26th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Mayhem, Brawl In Cell Block 99, Flatliners (2017)

  • DailyDead
Even though Christmas is technically over, that doesn’t mean there still aren’t a few gifts for genre fans this week in the form of some killer Blu-ray and DVD releases. It’s a relatively quiet day for home entertainment debuts, but the films coming home on December 26th make up an entertaining assortment of viewing experiences to get you through this final week of 2017.

Rlj Entertainment is keeping busy on Tuesday with a pair of brutally awesome movies—Joe Lynch’s Mayhem and S. Craig Zahler’s Brawl in Cell Block 99—and for those of you who may have missed it in theaters, the Flatliners remake comes home to both formats as well. Terminator 2: Judgment Day is coming to 4K this week, too, and you can see Wesley Snipes take on aliens in The Recall, to boot.

The Den Of Geek top 20 films of 2017: 20 to 11

Den Of Geek Dec 23, 2017

We start our film of the year countdown, as we go from numbers 20 to 11...

At this time of year, traditions take hold for us. Waiting around the back of Asda for them to stick the ‘reduced’ labels on the bread. Marauding around coffee shops, trying to find one with a seat next to a power socket. And getting all of our writers to put together their favourite films of the year list.

We duly did this, and fed all of those votes into our Zx Spectrum 128k +2, which diligently weighted said votes, and came up with our annual top 20 countdown of films. Tragically, Geostorm didn’t trouble the list, despite Simon’s protests. However, over the next week or two, we’re going through the films that did. And here’s the first part of the countdown, from numbers 20 to 11…

‘Bone Tomahawk’ & ‘Brawn In Cell Block 99’ Director S. Craig Zahler To Helm ‘Hug Chickenpenny’

So far in his career, S. Craig Zahler has made movies with terrific titles that lived up to every vowel and consonant they contained. “Bone Tomahawk” delivered on the raw-nerved promise of its name, while “Brawl In Cell Block 99” was all that suggested and so much more (it’s awesome). Zahler’s next film is titled “Dragged Across Concrete,” and while I could look up the premise and tell you what it is, honestly, if you’re not thrilled by the title, maybe just stay away.

Jim Henson Company teams with Bone Tomahawk director

David Crow Dec 21, 2017

In a collaboration many likely didn't expect, the Jim Henson Company will be designing the main character for S Craig Zahler's next movie.

It’s safe to say that whatever comes next from the Jim Henson Company, it’s not going to be your expected kind of Muppets project. Indeed, some strange end of year news out of Variety reveals that the company responsible for all the lovable Muppet characters (as well as Labyrinth and the far superior designs of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies) is partnering with the writer and director of Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99. You’d better brace yourself.

As per the trade, the two shall collaborate on Hug Chickpenny: The Panegyric Of An Anomalous Child. It is an adaptation of the classic orphan story from S Craig Zahler, who in addition to Bone Tomahawk and Brawl In Cell
