Crawl Trailer: Alexandre Aja Wades Into Dangerous Waters

French extremist turned creature feature enthusiast Alexandre Aja has a new monster movie on the horizon. Decidedly less tongue-in-cheek than Piranha 3D, Crawl looks like a harrowing survival thriller. When a massive hurricane hits her Florida hometown, Haley (played by Kaya Scodelario) ignores evacuation orders to search for her missing father (Barry Pepper). The two become trapped by quickly encroaching floodwaters, and as time runs out to escape the strengthening storm, Haley and her father discover that the rising water level is the least of their fears. Crawl was co-written by brothers Michael and Shawn Rasmussen who wrote The Ward for John Carpenter and the great, low-key supernatural horror film The Inhabitants. Crawl was produced by Craig Flores (300), Sam Raimi (Don't Breathe) and Aja....

Stephen Lang Joins Fangoria's V.F.W: It's The Wild Bunch Meets The Living Dead
Joe Begos is one of the top up-and-coming horror directors I keep an eye on. From his debut film Almost Human to his telekinetic follow-up The Mind's Eye it's just a matter of time before Begos hits the mainstream in a big, bad way. And today we have word on his next film which just might be the project that pushes him into a theater near you. This new project comes to us from the twisted minds over at the newly rebooted Fangoria and is called V.F.W.

And, get this, the movie just snagged Avatar and Don't Breathe baddie Stephen Lang as the star. Described as The Wild Bunch meets Night of the Living Dead, it follows, "Fred and his military buddies as they must defend their local Vfw post - and an innocent teen - against a deranged drug dealer and his relentless army of punk mutants.

Is the Evil Dead Reboot a Sequel? Director Gives Definitive Answer

Is the Evil Dead Reboot a Sequel? Director Gives Definitive Answer
The Evil Dead series was one of many horror film franchises to be given the reboot treatment past the new millennium. Ushered in by films like Dawn of the Dead and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, it was clear horror reboots were here to say by the time Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street were also given fresh takes in Hollywood. Recognizing the popularity of the original film trilogy directed by Sam Raimi and starring Bruce Campbell, Fede Alvarez helmed his own Evil Dead reboot which hit theaters in 2013. It has since generated tons of fan discussion as to whether it's a remake or an actual sequel to the Raimi trilogy, and now the film's director is chiming in with an official answer.

On Twitter, Fede Alvarez was asked by a curious fan if the film is a remake or a sequel, looking to finally end the long-running debate.

Stephen Lang on Finding the Ghost in the Mortal Engines Machine

Matthew Schuchman Nov 9, 2018

We sit down with veteran character actor Stephen Lang to discuss Mortal Engines, embodying cyborgs... and Don't Breathe 2.

Though he’s been a staple of stage and screen for some time now, Stephen Lang’s name generally brings an image of certain roles to people’s minds. That of the grizzled, no-nonsense Col. Miles Quaritch from James Cameron’s Avatar (who it seems will be the main antagonist for all of the upcoming sequels as well); or as “The Blind Man,” from the recent horror hit, Don’t Breathe. But the real Lang cut his teeth in the business as a staple of the stage, appearing as Happy in the 1980s revival of Death of a Salesman, and he was the first person to portray Col. Nathan Jessup in the original stage productions of A Few Good Men, a role that was made infamous from its film adaptation with Jack Nicholson.

Girl in the Spider's Web Director Talks Reinventing the Lisbeth Salander Legacy [Exclusive]

Girl in the Spider's Web Director Talks Reinventing the Lisbeth Salander Legacy [Exclusive]
Fede Alvarez has unquestionably had an interesting and very successful career in Hollywood so far. His latest effort, The Girl in the Spider's Web, represents the latest attempt to bring The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo saga to life for American audiences on the big screen. Alvarez was handed the keys to the driver's seat for this one and he certainly had some big shoes to fill, in addition to some tough decisions to make.

In 2011, David Fincher took a crack at The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, utilizing a cast fronted by Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. The movie was a modest hit at the box office and garnered a Best Actress Oscar nomination for Mara. However, the reported $90 million budget made pursuing a sequel somewhat problematic. Not to mention that Craig has kept busy with his outings as Bond and Mara has also been in-demand in the years since.

Can The Grinch Steal the Box Office Away from Bohemian Rhapsody?

Can The Grinch Steal the Box Office Away from Bohemian Rhapsody?
Last weekend, the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody overperform to win the box office with a $51 million haul. This weekend, however, sees a trio of newcomers which will get in the way of Freddie Mercury and the legendary rockers winning the crown for a second week in a row. Illumination's The Grinch, Sony's The Girl in the Spider's Web and Paramount's Overlord are all debuting this weekend and each one looks to take a spot in the top five.

Ultimately, it looks like the holiday buzz is going to get started a bit early this year with The Grinch, which features Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of the beloved Dr. Seuss creation, taking the top spot. The new take on the classic tale looks to bring in between $55 and $65 million, based on current estimates. Even on the low end, that should be more than enough to take the top spot, as

The Girl in the Spider's Web Review: A Very Cool New Dragon Tattoo

The Girl in the Spider's Web Review: A Very Cool New Dragon Tattoo
It's been seven years since David Fincher delivered his gritty, American take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Unfortunately, a sequel never materialized, despite the fact that Sony has been dead set on turning the popular book series into a franchise. Now, they've completed their brand new attempt in the form of The Girl in the Spider's Web which brings in a new director, writer, cast and a decidedly different take on the material than what came before. The result, though unlike what preceded it, still winds up being a thrilling and arguably more crowd-pleasing effort.

The Girl in the Spider's Web, which is based on author David Lagercrantz' fourth novel in the series, centers on a man who was recently fired from a high-ranking position within the National Security Agency. He then recruits world-class hacker and all around troubled badass Lisbeth Salander to steal his program, FireWall.

Fede Alvarez Confirms ‘Don’t Breathe 2’ Script Is Done, Sequel Will Definitely Happen Before ‘Evil Dead 2’

Fede Alvarez Confirms ‘Don’t Breathe 2’ Script Is Done, Sequel Will Definitely Happen Before ‘Evil Dead 2’
Fede Alvarez is getting his first shot at a studio blockbuster later this month with the release of Sony’s “The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” starring Claire Foy as Lisbeth Salander, but the director’s roots are in horror thanks to his cult classic efforts “Evil Dead” and “Don't Breathe.” Both movies starred Jane Levy and became beloved titles in the horror genre, and both have left fans clamoring for sequels.

Not long ago, Alvarez asked his Twitter followers which sequel they would like to see made first: “Don’t Breathe 2” or “Evil Dead 2”? While some took that to mean Alvarez was in the early planning stages on both, the filmmaker was merely just gauging the fan reactions to each title. “Evil Dead 2” won by a wide margin, hardly a surprise given the franchise’s fan base dates back to Sam Raimi’s 1981 original.

Evil Dead 2 and Don't Breathe 2 Updates Arrive from Director Fede Alvarez [Exclusive]
Fede Alvarez has provided us with an update on the status of Evil Dead 2. The filmmaker revived the classic Sam Raimi franchise for modern audiences on the big screen in 2013 with a well-received remake that did quite well at the box office. We've been waiting for a sequel ever since and now Alvarez reveals that it may still happen, but it may wind up being without him in the director's chair.

Not long ago, Fede Alvarez tweeted to his fans, asking if he should do Don't Breathe 2 or Evil Dead 2 next, with the latter option being the runaway favorite. I recently had the chance to speak with the filmmaker in honor of his latest movie, The Girl in the Spider's Web. During the conversation, I asked Fede Alvarez about possibly doing a sequel to his Evil Dead remake as his next movie, given the Twitter poll, and

Labyrinth 2 Script Is Finished

Labyrinth 2 Script Is Finished
Released in 1986, Jim Henson's Labyrinth has become a beloved cult classic over the past few decades. The fun fantasy film might have underperformed at the box office at the time, but its continued popularity over all these years suggests there's now more money to be made with the property. This has led to the production of an upcoming Labyrinth revival film, which will serve as a modern-day direct sequel to the original movie. Last year, Fede Alvarez was attached to the project to direct and co-write with Jay Basu, and the filmmaker has revealed that the screenplay for the film has been finished.

"It is basically a direct continuation of the first movie many years later, and I can't tell you much more about it... but we have a script, and we're very excited about it so we'll see where that goes. Like always, it takes time and effort to

Watch: Short Comedy 'Ciao Lola' Filmed in Venice, Starring Jane Levy

"Who are all these people?" Nothing like a funny short film set in a romantic city to brighten up your day! Ciao Lola is a short comedy made by producer / filmmaker Oscar Boyson, running only six minutes in total. It was filmed in Venice back in 2016, and is now available to watch online. The short stars Jane Levy as Lola and Thomas McDonell as Peter, a couple visiting the gorgeous Italian city. There's some unexplained subtext to this that isn't implicit, but you'll figure it out as it goes along. I like the playfulness of this, and all the lovely shots of Venice. Enjoy! Original description from Vimeo: "I made this short film in Venice in August of 2016." A guy tries to keep up with his girlfriend who clearly adjusted too well in the city. Ciao Lola is directed by producer / filmmaker Oscar Boyson (mostly a ...

Nathan Fillion Stars as Nathan Drake in This Awesome Uncharted Fan Film!

Last week Nathan Fillion teased a project that he was working on that was connected to Nathan Drake and the Uncharted video game franchise. Well, today we know exactly what it was that he was teasing! 

Nathan Fillion stars as Nathan Drake in a live-action Uncharted fan film and it's pretty freakin' fantastic! It also shows how perfect Fillion fits this character! After watching this, it's a shame that he'll still probably never star in a feature film. Oh yeah! I should probably also mention that the short also stars Stephen Lang in the role of Sully, which is another perfect piece of casting!

The short film was directed by Allan Ungar and he made a fan film that I think Uncharted fans will be proud of. It's a great set up to a story and the writing is clever, fun, and spot on! It's also got some great action and some cool shots!
