'The Skin I Live In' trailer: Pedro Almodovar makes a thriller with Antonio Banderas

The Skin I Live In is the first collaboration between Spanish film demi-god Pedro Almodóvar and Antonio Banderas in over two decades (when they made Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!). It initially looks like a relatively straightforward thriller, with Banderas holding a gun on a woman. Then things start going off the rails: A fight in a museum! A bald masked lady wearing a skintight Catwoman outfit! Also, a scary-looking vacuum! See it to believe it: READ FULL STORY

Two-time Harry Potter director Chris Columbus has acquired the remake rights to the Norwegian horror film Troll Hunter, which begins its U.S. theatrical run today. The fake documentary follows a government-sanctioned hunter as he tracks and slays trolls in the wilds of Scandinavia. “Troll Hunter was a visceral, thrilling cinematic rock and roller coaster ride of a movie,” Columbus said in a statement. “Visually, there are scenes in this film that American audiences have never seen. We want to introduce an International audience to this amazing moviegoing experience!”

The remake rights were acquired by Columbus’ 1492 Pictures company and CJ Entertainment & Media. The new film will be penned by Marc Haimes, whose horror movie script Elevator Men was sold to Summit in 2009.

Fancy some hot German lesbian vampires? Check out the 'We Are the Night' trailer!

Are you starting to feel bored by the current wave of American vampires, with their pouty lips and their convoluted mythologies and their desperation to appeal to audiences barely through puberty? Worry not, fellow traveler, your friends in Germany may have just the thing for you. It’s called We Are the Night, and it’s the crazy-looking tale of a dissolute Berlin punkette who runs afoul of a group of club-hopping hotties… who are also centuries-old vampires. In no time at all, our heroine has become a proudly Euro-trashy vampire. She apparently has some sort of flirtation with a cop who looks like Undeclared-era Charlie Hunnam. Also, techno music and girls making out! Let’s see Priest top that! Check out the trailer after the jump… READ FULL STORY

'Troll Hunter': Director André Ovredal talks about his Norwegian monster movie

“Trolls” have been getting a lot of publicity recently, thanks to the public ruminations of Mr. Charlie Sheen. But Norwegian writer-director André Øvredal’s film Troll Hunter features a decidedly less metaphorical type of beastie. This documentary-style horror film would have us believe that enormous, real-life trolls wander around the wilds of Norway, at least until they make the mistake of wandering into inhabited areas at which point they are dispatched by the film’s titular hunter (who is played by comedian Otto Jesperson). The existence of the trolls is kept a secret by the government, but when a trio of film students discover how Jesperson’s character spends his days — or, more, accurately, nights — the world-weary troll hunter encourages them to document his activities.  READ FULL STORY

'Legend of the Fist' trailer: Ninja skills vs. WWI

The important thing here for fans of Hong Kong action are the words in this movie’s subtitle: Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen.

Chen Zhen, for those who are uninitiated, is beloved by martial arts fans on a level commensurate with Batman — an iconic character, first played by Bruce Lee in the 1972 classic Fist of Fury, and then by Jet Li in 1994’s Fist of Legend. A 1995 TV series resurrected Chen Zhen, then played by Donnie Yen, who returns as the lead once again in this feature film.  READ FULL STORY

Adrien Brody settles 'Giallo' suit

gialloAdrien Brody has reached a settlement with the producers of Giallo, the film he had legally blocked from a U.S. release while claiming he was still owed $640,000 for his work. The matter was settled 10 days ago, according to Hannibal Pictures’ CEO Richard Rionda Del Castro, and though financial terms have not been disclosed, Del Castro says that those issues were “resolved satisfactory for him and for us, and we’re just happy to have the matter behind us.” The agreement clears the path for Giallo, in which Brody plays an FBI agent on the trail of a serial killer, to receive a theatrical, or more likely, a DVD release, in the U.S.
