If you think about it, Sylvester Stallone is very similar to Jesus Christ. Jesus rose from the dead on the third day; Stallone rose from career death by making Rocky Balboa, the third-best Rocky movie. Jesus single-handedly cast the moneylenders out of the Temple in Jerusalem; Stallone single-handedly cast the Neo-Fascists out of Los Angeles in Cobra. And whereas Jesus assembled twelve of his best pals into a crack team of religious emissaries known as “The Twelve Apostles,” Stallone convinced his twelve BFFs to join him for The Expendables 2, the sequel to 2010′s bloodsoaked beefcake tone poem.

Lady Gaga will make her acting debut in Machete Kills, the 2013 sequel Robert Rodriguez’ bulletsoaked ode to exploitation cinema. Earlier today, Rodriguez tweeted: “I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills, she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!” Rodriguez included a poster proclaiming that Gaga is playing “La Chameléon,” a character who apparently enjoys wearing wolf fur and shooting silenced pistols, which in context makes her seem rather demure. Gaga confirmed on her own Twitter account: “Yes its true, I will be making my debut as an actress ln the amazing MACHETE KILLS BY @RODRIGUEZ IM SO EXCITED!!! AH! Filming was insane.” READ FULL STORY »
Just how far are you willing to go to fulfill your dreams? To fulfill the dreams of those that you love and to live up to their expectations? It’s a question at the heart of The Words, a Sundance film that stars Bradley Cooper as a frustrated New York writer who is crumbling under the realization that his best might not ever be good enough. But then, before he can contemplate the ramifications, success lands in his lap. As Balzac wrote, “Behind every great fortune there is a great crime.”
Check out an exclusive motion poster for the drama, which opens Sept. 7, below.
The World’s End, long-awaited cinema reunion of director Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), officially has a greenlight, Universal Pictures announced today. Costarring regular collaborator Nick Frost, and co-written by Wright and Pegg, the film will follow five old friends who attempt to re-create a heroic pub crawl they attempted 20 years previous, which ends at a pub called The World’s End. But as the title implies, the fate of humankind also hangs in the balance.
Universal also released a teaser poster for the film, evoking the pub crawl of the plot. Check it out below:

Now that the battle of the Snow White movies is over, it’s time to look forward to the clash of the Wizard of Oz reinterpretations on the horizon: there’s an animated take starring the voice of Lea Michele, a CG/stop-motion version from the co-director of Corpse Bride, and Disney’s live action prequel, Oz the Great and Powerful. We’ll focus on the latter of the three for now.
Disney doesn’t own the rights to the 1939 classic — so there won’t be any ruby slippers in Oz the Great and Powerful – but the film poster is still packed with plenty of the imagery we know well from L. Frank Baum’s 1900 novel and the Judy Garland-starring movie. There’s the yellow brick road, the wizard’s hot air balloon, quite the large mass of tornadoes, and the Emerald City shining in the distance. Check out the poster below. READ FULL STORY »
Fantastic Fest has announced that the opening film of this year’s Austin, Tx., genre movie extravaganza will be director Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie. The black and white animated movie is to receive its world premiere on September 20 at the city’s famed Alamo Drafthouse cinema.
“Tim Burton stands as a titan of modern genre cinema,” Fantastic Fest co-founder and creative director Tim League said in a statement. “To world premiere the feature adaptation of his early beloved short is a huge honor for me personally and for the festival in general.”
The organizers of Fantastic Fest have also debuted this year’s poster, which is the work of artist Mike Saptuo. You can check it out below.
Santa Claus has graced the silver screen in countless holiday movies, and this November, he’s back again. But this time, in DreamWorks Animation’s Rise of the Guardians, he’s joined by a crew of other creatures that accompany the visions of sugar plums in children’s heads. Today Paramount, which is distributing the film, released a series of character posters featuring a formidable Easter Bunny, a birdlike Tooth Fairy and four other characters. In the film, these classic characters are all known by nicknames – Santa is North, the Easter Bunny is E. Aster Bunnymund – but on the posters, they went with the better-known names, with the exception of Pitch, the Boogeyman-inspired nightmare-bringer antagonist of the film.
The movie comes from the mind of the man who won this year’s Oscar for best animated short, William Joyce (The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore). He penned the Guardians screenplay and the children’s book series from which it is adapted.

Film freaks of a certain age, like myself, will have no problem recalling the introduction of video tapes. Thanks to this groundbreaking innovation you could finally rent whatever movie you wanted (as long as it was M*A*S*H or Caligula) whenever you wanted to rent it (as long as you had the necessary deposit and 117 different types of photo identification).
Those who feel nostalgic for the format and/or enjoy horror anthology movies should have V/H/S very much on their radar. Directed by a number of genre up-and-comers — including House of the Devil auteur Ti West — the Sundance-screened movie concerns a group of misfits who, after being hired to rob a house, come across a rare VHS tape with unpleasant consequences. The film is available on VOD from August 31, but check out a bigger version of the movie’s new, striking poster below.
How do you promote a sci-fi movie about sinister advertisements which not only influence your actions and desires but control them?
Why, with a sinister advertisement of course!
