Is it possible to set an entire film on a computer screen? Yes! In the new thriller Open Windows, Elijah Wood plays a blogger obsessed with an actress named Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey) who is persuaded to spy on the star by an unseen but seemingly helpful third party. The twist? Well, there are a few of them in this film from Timecrimes director Nacho Vigalondo. But the most obvious is that the movie does, indeed, all take place on a computer screen.

While Magic Mike XXL‘s cast has grown over the last several weeks,there’s still the matter of filling the film with extras. Set to revolve around a few stripper conventions, XXL will include plenty of risqué shows that will require live audiences. And star Channing Tatum is giving one fan a chance to see his and his costars stripping prowess live.
Tatum announced on his Facebook page on Sept. 19 that fans can enter a contest in the hopes of winning a visit to the set and a role as an extra during one of the film’s “crazy” performances. Entrants need to create a photo or video showcasing their love for Magic Mike and why they would want to be in the film.
All of the rules can be found at the contest’s official site, and the contest is open until 12:00 PT on Sept. 29. Tatum promises that the sequel’s dance numbers are “crazy this time,” which makes sense considering stripper conventions are presumably not very tame gatherings.
Who on earth would set a high-octane, high-body count, bulletfest of an action movie in a single room? The answer is director Joe Lynch. The filmmaker’s new film, Everly, stars Salma Hayek as a prostitute who must kill a small army of assassins sent to murder her at an apartment by a yakuza crime boss. At Christmas.
Magic Mike XXL has already begun filming, and the final cast has been slowly revealed: Matthew McConaughey is out. Andie MacDowell is in. And now, another female lead has been cast for the sequel. Amber Heard has been hired as one of the film’s new leads, EW has learned.
Details remain unknown about Heard’s character, but she joins a continually growing cast that also includes returning lead Channing Tatum for what has been described as an “on-the-road adventure.”
Heard can next be seen alongside her Friday Night Lights costar Billy Bob Thornton in London Fields, while XXL will arrive just in time for Independence Day when it hits theaters on July 3, 2015.
It is not easy to describe the Dan Stevens-starring action-comedy The Guest, which opens in theaters Thursday. You could say—and I have—that the film concerns an army veteran who inveigles his way into the bosom of a grieving family, but that description hardly does it justice, considering the tricksy, mayhem-packed ways of Stevens’ David.

Ghostbusters is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and while the franchise’s future may be nebulous at the moment, its place in movie history is unquestionable. To honor the film’s legacy, EW‘s Kyle Ryan took a tour of New York City according to Ghostbusters with Winston Zeddemore himself, Ernie Hudson.
The Black Maria Limited Edition box set of director Tobe Hooper’s horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre may not contain a kitchen sink—or, for that matter, an actual chainsaw—but this 40th anniversary four-disc DVD/Blu-ray combo pack has pretty much everything else a Leatherface lover could desire. The film itself is presented in new 4K digital transfer with a 7.1 surround sound mix supervised by Hooper itself.
“The film works as well, if not better, than it originally did,” the filmmaker told EW earlier this year. Bonus features include commentaries, making-of featurettes, and trailers while purchasers will also become the proud owner of a mini-poster and a Leatherface apron, with which you can amuse your friends (and worry your neighbors). Also, the actual box has been styled after the Black Maria which arrives at the end of the film.
