The humble hammer has been surprisingly underused as a weapon on the big screen — particularly when compared to the knife, the chainsaw, and that upstart, the nail gun. But this may all change on November 27, when the Spike Lee-directed, Josh Brolin-starring Oldboy hits cinemas.

Stuntwoman-turned-actress Zoe Bell made a splash with her appearance in the Quentin Tarantino-directed Death Proof half of Grindhouse — and is now very much back in action with her new film Raze. Bell plays a character who is abducted and, together with 49 other women, is forced to fight in a concrete bunker for the amusement of unseen spectators.
Drafthouse Films to rerelease whacked-out '70s horror film 'The Visitor' this Halloween -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER
What do legendary directors John Huston and Sam Peckinpah, Poseidon Adventure actress Shelley Winters, Lance Henriksen, a “cosmic Christ figure,” a demonic eight year old girl, and the fate of the universe have in common? They all feature in the obscure 1979 sci-fi-horror film The Visitor, which Drafthouse Films has announced it will rerelease in remastered form this Halloween weekend (a VOD/digital and home entertainment release will follow in January of next year.)
Sure, Daniel Radcliffe was excited to land the role of Harry Potter over a decade ago. But as the actor recently told EW’s Jess Cagle, that wasn’t necessarily because he was a huge fan of J.K. Rowling’s books. The true source of Radcliffe’s excitement? “I really wanted to not be in school,” he admitted on EW Radio. “That was a huge part of it. I really disliked school and I really loved being on set.”
In the clip below, Radcliffe also discusses where he was when he learned the life-changing news of his casting — as well as how embarrassed he is to hear his voice in the early films. And yes, Cagle has a clip from Sorcerer’s Stone ready and waiting.

To call the new film We Are What We Are a “cannibal movie” is both misleading and does a disservice to this latest collaboration from writer-director Jim Mickle and actor-writer Nick Damici, whose previous credits include 2010′s apocalypse vampire movie Stake Land. A thoroughly reimagined remake of Mexican director Jorge Michel Grau’s acclaimed 2010 film, Mickle’s movie is as much about family, religion, and the unique flavor of beautiful-but-beleaguered upstate New York as it is about people eating human flesh.
It was summer of 2011, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt arrived in New Mexico hoping to catch a Black Widow.
The actor had arranged a meeting with Scarlett Johansson, who was in Albuquerque filming The Avengers, and though he played it casual, this encounter would be a critical part of getting his first film as a writer-director off the ground. The two had crossed paths before, but didn’t know each other well. He was hoping she would take a chance on him.
This is how he won her over for the sexy satire Don Jon, which opens today, starring the two of them as a young New Jersey couple who are dazed, confused, and underwhelmed by their own fantasies.
Well, well, well, Christopher Eccleston … I mean, Malekith the Accursed.
Looks like you finally got your own Thor: The Dark World poster.
Diana lived her life in front of the cameras.
The late Princess of Wales was easily one of the most visible figures of the 20th century, so it seems fitting that the first poster for Diana, starring Naomi Watts, accentuates the dichotomy of her strange public/private life in one image. The shot of Diana in the Tiffany blue swimsuit sitting at the edge of that diving board on the yacht is immediately identifiable as her. But, it was also a paparazzi photo. Somehow a moment of repose captured by an uninvited photographer became one of the most iconic images of her short life.
