'Texas Chainsaw 3D' star Alexandra Daddario on facing off against Leatherface and those 'Fifty Shades of Grey' rumors

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has a habit of casting actors on the cusp of fame, be they Matthew McConaughey and Renée Zellweger in 1994’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, Jessica Biel in the 2003 remake of Tobe Hooper’s original classic shocker, or Matt Bomer in 2006’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. The latest thespian hoping to benefit from what we’re going to call “the Chainsaw bump” is Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) who plays the heroine in Texas Chainsaw 3D, which arrives in cinemas this Friday.

Below, the actress talks about facing off against the iconic Leatherface, the forthcoming Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, and why the cast members of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia aren’t as drunk as you might think. READ FULL STORY

FRANCO-WALLFLOWER

With Oscar voting in full swing, EW’s Prize Fighter is kicking off the “Consider This” series, asking folks with Oscar histories of their own to share their personal favorites of the year. James Franco, a lead actor nominee for 127 Hours two years ago, made his breakthrough on the coming-of-age TV series Freaks and Geeks and gave us this love letter to another story in that genre: The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which stars Logan Lerman as a meek kid grappling with a troubled past, Emma Watson as a girl isolated by a bad reputation, and Ezra Miller as their defiant gay friend (nicknamed “Nothing”) who refuses to be shamed into hiding who he is. 

It’s hard to do a film about high school nowadays and not have it suck. READ FULL STORY

'Ender's Game': Harrison Ford stares down Asa Butterfield in first photo -- EXCLUSIVE

Anyone who has read Orson Scott Card’s beloved 1985 sci-fi novel, Ender’s Game, can understand why, for the past 20 years, Hollywood has been unable to adapt the book. After all, it’s challenging enough to shoot a movie about pint-sized military recruits fighting each other in a futuristic, space-set Battle School, but it’s an even taller order to capture the novel’s complex themes about war and morality.

Fortunately for fans of the book, the long wait for a film adaptation is (almost) over. Ender’s Game will hit theaters on Nov. 1, 2013 (Summit Entertainment has just launched the film’s official Facebook page), and EW has your exclusive first look at the movie — as well as the first interview with director Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, X-Men Origins: Wolverine).  READ FULL STORY

DreamWorks Studios announced today that it has entered into exclusive talks to acquire the feature film rights to The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. The novel, which was just released in the U.S. in July, is already an international bestseller. The story revolves around a lighthouse keeper and his wife who discover a baby on an abandoned boat. The couple decide to raise the child as their own, leading to complicated moral questions and consequences.

Heyday Films’ David Heyman (Harry Potter) will produce the adaptation along with Jeffrey Clifford. READ FULL STORY

'Fat Kid Rules The World': Matthew Lillard weighs in on his directorial debut

If a fat kid really did rule the world, then a movie version of KL Going‘s 2003 book Fat Kid Rules The World would have hit cinema screens years ago. But it took actor-turned-first-time director Matthew Lillard (Scream, The Descendants) almost a decade to get his adaptation of the young adult novel in the can and a subsequent, successful Kickstarter campaign to guarantee a run in theaters. (The film opens this Friday at New York’s Cinema Village, followed by a nationwide roll out. Fat Kid Rules The World will also be available on VOD and iTunes on Oct. 25.)

Below, Lillard talks about making this tale of an overweight, suicidal high schooler, played by Jacob Wysocki (ABC Family’s Huge), who is recruited to play drums in a band called the Tectonics by Matt O’Leary’s charismatic, drug-addicted guitarist.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You are one of the film industry’s lankier performers…
MATTHEW LILLARD: [Laughs] I used to be, that’s for sure. READ FULL STORY

'Dredd 3D': Check out the Mondo poster for tomorrow's Fantastic Fest screening -- EXCLUSIVE

dredd-3d

Splundig vur thrigg, Earthlets!

If you recognize that reference to the Judge Dredd strip-spawning U.K. comic 2000ADand its alien editor “Tharg” — then you, like me, may have been waiting upwards of 35 years for a decent movie featuring Mega-City One’s top cop to arrive in cinemas (don’t get me started on the Sly Stone-starring 1995 fiasco).

Judging by the current Rotten Tomatoes rating for Dredd 3D — and my colleague Darren Franich’s enthusiastic review of the film in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly — that wait will end this Friday when the Karl Urban-toplined actioner hits screens across the country. However, lucky attendees of this year’s Fantastic Fest shindig in Austin, Tex., will be seeing the film tomorrow at a screening attended by Urban, Olivia Thirlby, and screenwriter Alex Garland. To mark the occasion, the Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible art boutique arm Mondo has commissioned a special poster by the artist Jock that will be available to purchase at Fantastic Fest (any unpurchased posters will be sold online.)

You can inspect said artifact above and, in larger form, below (along with the Dredd 3D trailer). I think you’ll agree it’s pretty zarjaz. READ FULL STORY

Want to get a jump on Halloween? Well, you could hone your pumpkin-hollowing skills. Or you could watch the new, found footage horror anthology V/H/S, which arrives in cinemas October 5 but is already available on VOD.

Framed by the tale of a burglary attempt which goes horribly awry the terror compendium’s directors include Ti West (House of the Devil), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), and the filmmaking collective Radio Silence. The latter group are responsible for the anthology’s concluding chapter, “10/31/98,” in which the attempt by a group of costumed friends to attend a Halloween party goes, yes, horribly awry. “10/31/98″ is also the inspiration for a new V/H/S poster from artist Tony Moore, who is best known for his work on the Walking Dead comic. Moore’s work is one of five posters commissioned from comic book artists — the other contributors being James StokoeRM Guéra, Jason Latour, and Esad Ribic.

You can exclusively check out Moore’s poster above and, in larger format, below, where you’ll also find the V/H/S trailer.

'Harry Potter' producer to make 'Shadow and Bone' fantasy for DreamWorks -- BREAKING

SHADOW-BONE_240.jpg

DreamWorks has picked up the movie rights to Leigh Bardugo’s bestseller Shadow and Bone, about an orphan girl whose ability to harness a rare magic makes her one of her nation’s most coveted warriors.

Holly Bario, DreamWorks’ president of production, will announce the acquisition later today, and although every studio would like to grab a fresh YA book series in the hope that it can be turned into the next Harry Potter-style film franchise, not every film has the actual producer of the Potter movies overseeing it.

Shadow and Bone would be the exception.

Check out the trailer for animated Graham Chapman biopic 'A Liar's Autobiography' -- VIDEO

We haven’t heard much from Monty Python comedy team member Graham Chapman recently. Although, as directors Bill Jones and Ben Timlett point out in the production notes for their new animated Chapman biopic A Liar’s Autobiography, that’s mostly because the troubled funnyman has been dead since 1989.

Before his demise, however, Chapman recorded an audio version of his memoirs — also called A Liar’s Autobiography — and will thus be heard in the film alongside the freshly recorded voices of his fellow Pythons Terry Jones, John Cleese, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam.
