It seems incredible that horror legend and giallo king Dario Argento spent more than four decades in the business without making a version of Bram Stoker’s classic vampire novel Dracula. But the director has now rectified that omission by putting his name, in a very real sense, to Argento’s Dracula 3-D.

Four years after the war in Chicago, the Transformers may be facing extinction.
At least that’s the main takeaway from the perfectly hyperbolic new title for Michael Bay’s fourth franchise installment — Transformers: Age of Extinction. Paramount revealed the title and a brand new, sand-covered poster, Tuesday, for the Mark Walhberg-starrer that’s scheduled to hit theaters on June 27, 2014.
'The Punk Singer' director on capturing the essence of Bikini Kill's Kathleen Hanna -- POSTER PREMIERE
Riot Grrrl founder Kathleen Hanna never intended to be the subject of a feature-length film. She just wanted a concert documentary.
But Sini Anderson, Hanna’s close friend and the eventual director of The Punk Singer, pushed for more. “I thought it was a really good time for people to know not just about Le Tigre, but about her story,” Anderson told EW of the lead singer of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre. “I think that was a terrifying idea for Kathleen.” She eventually came on board and what resulted is an intimate portrait of Hanna at the center of the movement told through 20 years of archival footage and interviews with Hanna and those who are and were closest to her, including Joan Jett and The Beastie Boys’ Adam Horovitz, to whom Hanna has been married since 2006.
It might be odd to say that Disneyland is having a Hollywood moment since the Walt Disney Company is omnipresent in every corner of the industry landscape, but the iconic amusement park is getting a series of close-ups in a trio of upcoming films. In Saving Mr. Banks, due Dec. 20, Tom Hanks plays Walt Disney himself as he tries to charm Mary Poppins‘ author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) with a private tour of the park. Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland is still shrouded in mystery, and the only clues so far are found in a box purportedly buried in the Disney archives. READ FULL STORY
Ti West is part of a cult of sorts. The director of chilling horror movies like The Innkeepers and The House of the Devil frequently collaborates with a close-knit bunch of similar-minded artists, including Joe Swanberg, Amy Seimetz, and AJ Bowen, most recently in You’re Next. In The Sacrament, which debuts at next week’s Venice Film Festival before having its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, West and his “mumblegore” crew take the harrowing journey into a Jonestown-style cult. Three magazine journalists (Swanberg, Bowen, and Kentucker Audley) visit a relative (Seimetz) at a religious commune, where the mysterious Father (Gene Jones) is the unchallenged leader. Like all infamous cult tales, it doesn’t end well.
“Jonestown is something that I’ve always been really fascinated by, because I don’t think a lot of people understand it,” says West, who wrote, directed, edited, and produced the movie. “The people who killed themselves were not mindless cult people in robes acting like brainwashed monsters. I wanted to depict a cult that wasn’t full of psychos. They are people that you’re like, ‘Well, I don’t want to live there, but I understand why they do. And let them do whatever they want.’ Of course, things go wrong, but I think that that understanding of the mentality is very important and I think it’s overlooked in most movies, especially horror movies, because everyone wants to get to the crazy sh-t.”
Still, expect plenty of crazy sh-t. The movie is also produced by Eli Roth, the madman behind Cabin Fever and Hostel. But West says Roth was the perfect collaborator and benefactor. “He wasn’t trying to make an Eli Roth movie through me,” he says. “He let me do my thing and he was very protective of, ‘This is Ti’s movie and let it be like that.’ It’s a very confrontational movie and it’s very horrific and it’s very dark. It’s different from what people might expect from me and something different from what people expect from Eli as well.”
If you thought Benedict Cumberbatch looked menacing in Star Trek Into Darkness, you haven’t seen him with false teeth and a white wig.
For The Fifth Estate, Cumberbatch inhabits the role of Julian Assange, the man at the heart of the Wikileaks phenomenon. The film, which is directed by Bill Condon, also stars Daniel Bruhl as Assange’s partner, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, who will later split from the operation. And if the film’s newest poster tells us anything, it’s that the duo that specialized in exposing secrets had a few secrets of their own.
The Fifth Estate hits theaters on October 18.
We’ve all seen the stereotypical life-of-the-party best friend at a wedding (or in a wedding movie) who drinks too much, unleashes his awkward dance moves, unbuttons a few too many buttons, and makes moves on all the ladies. Best Man Down is about that guy — until it isn’t.
As the title implies, things eventually head south for that boisterous best man, Lumpy (Tyler Labine), when he’s found dead following the wedding of his best friend Scott (Justin Long). EW.com is exclusively premiering the poster for the fall film, and director Ted Koland got on the phone to talk us through the visual, which plants the movie firmly in dramedy territory.

Whenever characters in comedic movies or TV shows end up looking at porn they always do that “head-tilt” trope, which suggests whatever they’re seeing (and the audience isn’t) is so twisted they’re having a hard time telling up from down.
The new poster for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Don Jon very subtly tricks the viewer into doing the same, at least if you want to get a good look at the seductive looks Julianne Moore and Scarlett Johansson are giving off.
Coincidence? Probably. But it’s also appropriate given this film’s twisted take on love and sex.
By the beard of Odin! Behold the latest poster for Thor: The Dark World.
Christopher Eccleston’s Malekith the Accursed looms large, the sky falls, Tom Hiddleston’s eternal troublemaker Loki cackles, and Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster squeezes in close to Chris Hemsworth’s hero, sporting her own fetching Asgardian armor.
Fans would argue Loki is really the one who needs a hug.
The poster for the Nov. 8 movie also shows Malekith’s army of dark elves marching forward in silhouette across the bottom. In the lower right, we see a shimmering palace of Asgard, and above it hovers the Fist of Malekith, the name of his invading Black Ark ship.
Meanwhile, the entire cosmic cast of characters is reunited — Idris Elba’s stoic gatekeeper Heimdall, Anthony Hopkins as the one-eyed paterfamilias Odin, and of course the Warriors Three (Fandral, Hogun, and Volstagg) being very careful to keep their axe, sword, and mace away from grabby elf hands.
And, evidently, so does Mickey Mouse.
This new poster for Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks literally illustrates the film’s central conflict: the struggle between Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson), who was firmly against the notion of turning her masterpiece into a feature film, and Walt Disney (Tom Hanks), who spent years trying to persuade her to change her mind. Spoiler alert: Disney won.
(Extra spoiler alert: Travers despised the Disney version of Poppins, especially its original songs and animated sequences; she agreed to let Cameron Mackintosh adapt it into a stage musical only if he promised to allow only English-born writers onto its creative team.)
The film premieres in limited release Dec. 13 and in wide release Dec. 20. Check out the trailer below.
