What do you get when you cross chemical waste with beavers? The answer is the horror-comedy Zombeavers – and Hollywood’s latest viral phenomenon. The trailer for this film about (you guessed it!) zombified beavers has racked up almost 2 million views since it debuted a couple of weeks back. “It’s cool to get the validation,” says first-time director Jordan Rubin, who co-penned the film with regular writing partners Al and Jon Kaplan. “Once something starts getting up in the hits it’s interesting to see how people go, ‘Oh, we might have something here.”

Sunday’s Oscar show sounds like it should win an award for Best Ensemble.
Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, the producers of the 86th annual Academy Awards, announced a mega-list of actors this morning who will be handing out awards and helping to introduce segments during the March 2 ceremony.
Some have been already announced, or were winners last year, but among the 46 were some rarities — such as Sidney Poitier, Kim Novak, Bill Murray, Robert De Niro, Jim Carrey, and Harrison Ford. Others include Emma Watson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kevin Spacey, and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt…
There are too many to single out. See if your favorite is in:
When EW spoke with writer-actor Joe Swanberg last year about his appearance in horror filmmaker Ti West‘s new movie The Sacrament he described this tale of a Jonestown-style cult as one “not to be taken lightly.” Certainly the new red band trailer for the movie is about as un-frivolous as you can get. This latest film from the director of The Innkeepers and The House of the Devil costars AJ Bowen, Amy Seimetz, and Gene Jones and was produced by Eli Roth. The Sacrament debuts on VOD May 1 and will begin a theatrical run on June 6.
Vin Diesel took to his personal Facebook page to share a sneak peek at the artwork for his upcoming film The Last Witch Hunter, offering fans their first look at the action thriller.
“I will fill you all in later … but this meeting went well,” wrote the 46-year-old star as a caption to the image posted Wednesday.
The photo — which has already been liked by more than 200,000 of Diesel’s 66 million Facebook fans — is of an adult seated with two children in front of a wall landscape and character concept art. There’s little doubt that this snapshot is a preview of the warlock flick, either: Under the sketch of a female costumed in a black gown to the far right of the pre-production storyboard, there’s a caption that reads The Last Witch Hunter.
The Last Witch Hunter – about a witch hunter who joins forces with a witch to save New Yorkers from certain evil – is being directed by Breck Eisner and the film may eventually be developed into a franchise, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feitheimer announced recently. While the details of the film’s storyline have yet to be released, with Diesel involved, one can imagine that there will be plenty of action-packed, bloody sequences all in the interest of preserving the greater good (obviously).
But if that’s not the case, consider us on official Last Witch Hunter watch: Viesel promised to divulge more, and as evidenced with his tendency to tease fans with images from films like Guardians of the Galaxy, more Facebook updates are certainly to come in advance of the film’s release.
Prize Fighter Analysis: BAFTA wins for '12 Years a Slave' and 'Gravity' further muddle a tight Oscar race
Will it be Gravity or 12 Years a Slave? We keep looking for clarity, but this year’s award season is not forthcoming.
The BAFTA awards — think of them as the British Oscars — are considered a major Academy Award indicators, and this year 12 Years a Slave won Best Film. But … Gravity claimed the award for “Outstanding British Film” (since it was mostly produced there.)
12 Years a Slave won the Best Film trophy today at the BAFTA Film Awards in London. The movie’s star Chiwetel Ejiofor was also victorious in the Leading Actor category. Cate Blanchett won the Leading Actress award for Blue Jasmine while Alfonso Cuarón scored Best Director for Gravity, one of six wins for the Sandra Bullock-starring space drama. Jennifer Lawrence won Best Supporting Actress for American Hustle and Barkhad Abdi won Best Supporting Actor for his role in Captain Phillips.
While The Lego Movie and About Last Night may have been neck-and-neck at the box office on Valentine’s Day, it was the former which ultimately won the weekend with awesome ease. In all, The Lego Movie constructed an estimated total of $48.81 million for the three-day period, making for a cumulative total of $129.11 million in its second week of release. About Last Night earned $13 million on Friday, just a smidge less than The Lego Movie, and received an A- cinemascore. But the Kevin Hart-starring romantic comedy could not compete with Lego once love began to disappear from the air, ultimately earning an impressive but not Lego impressive $27 million over the three-day frame.
Box office update: 'Lego' and 'About Last Night' freeze out the competition with $13 million each on Friday
The Lego Movie built a second floor to its box office success yesterday, earning $13.03 million and just beating out the Kevin Hart-starring About Last Night, a remake of the Rob Lowe- and Demi Moore-topped 1986 comedy.
So would I — but, alas, we never will. In the mid-’70s, Hollywood studios declined to finance just such a project after Jodorowsky spent a couple of years prepping the movie with a band of hugely gifted artists including future Alien creators H.R. Giger and Dan O’Bannon. (In fairness to the studio execs, they may have been justifiably reluctant to invest in a project which Jodorowsky himself believed might be as many as 20 hours long).
Veronica Mars is back, marshmallows! And she’s quippier than ever.
In this exclusive clip from Rob Thomas’s highly anticipated Mars movie, Veronica (Kristen Bell) trades barbs with dad Keith (Enrico Colantoni) over which profession is worse — lawyer or private detective — before Wallace (Percy Daggs III) and Mac (Tina Majorino) show up with a surprise for Veronica.
