'Hatchet III' exclusive: Check out the horror sequel's new trailer -- GRUESOME: ADULT CONTENT AND NSFW
Few recent filmmakers have more enthusiastically, or more bloodily, embraced the mantle of horror director than Adam Green whose Hatchet franchise details the gore-drenched ways of swamp-dwelling maniac Victor Crowley. Indeed, 2010′s unrated Hatchet II made headlines when the AMC cinema chain pulled the movie from screens after just a couple of days.
When Halle Berry announced she was pregnant, X-Men fans wondered how that would affect her returning as Storm for Bryan Singer’s highly anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past. But, based on this tweet from Singer himself, it doesn’t look like much has changed for the weather-controlling mutant, aside from a shorter hairdo and a sleeker uniform. Check out a photo of Halle Berry as Storm tweeted by Singer today below.

Tom Wilkinson grew up in England but, of course, like any child of the 1950s, he could see the Old West just fine thanks to the powerful and focused lens of Hollywood. The two-time Oscar nominee plays a rapacious railroad baron named Latham Cole (that’s him in the new poster above) in Disney’s The Lone Ranger, the most expensive western in history and a bold bid to revive that once-dominant screen genre. READ FULL STORY »
Will a western work? That’s the question with Disney’s The Lone Ranger, which arrives this summer as the most expensive cowboy film in history. The trio behind the film — producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Gore Verbinski and star Johnny Depp — are accustomed to genre skepticism, they heard the chorus of doubters when they salvaged the swashbuckler genre from the briny depths with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Jane Eyre (2006) star and Anna Karenina costar Ruth Wilson, who portrays Rebecca Reid in the film (as shown in the exclusive first-look poster above), says that Verbinski is a wild-card filmmaker up to the task of reviving a classic that seems dusty in all the wrong ways.
Hugh Jackman on returning as Wolverine for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past': 'I must admit I was starting to see a life free of steamed chicken breasts'
Hugh Jackman will make his seventh(!) appearance as Wolverine in next year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, which marks Bryan Singer’s return to the franchise. The actor first heard about the project that features not only original X-Men stars like Jackman and Halle Berry, but also First Class actors like Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, last year while he was shooting this summer’s The Wolverine and was hoping for a break from his superhero workout and diet. “I must admit I was starting to see a life free of steamed chicken breasts,” jokes the actor. “They told me the idea and, at the time, it was Matthew Vaughn [directing]. Instantly, I knew it was a winner. It just felt like everything was coming full circle. However, I must admit my stomach and my mind were like, ‘Oh no.’” READ FULL STORY »
Check out the poster for Ben Wheatley's new killers-on-vacation film 'Sightseers' -- EXCLUSIVE IMAGE
Over the past couple of years writer-director Ben Wheatley has established himself as one of the U.K.’s hottest — and most deliciously gruesome — filmmakers with his 2009 gangster movie Down Terrace, 2011′s unforgettable horror spectacular Kill List, and his recent contribution to the currently playing-in-select-cinemas horror anthology The ABC’s of Death.
He earned our respect in The Last King of Scotland, he stole our hearts in Atonement, and he made us fans for life in X-Men: First Class. So what is James McAvoy, the blue-eyed Scotsman, up to now?
Other than starring in Welcome to the Punch, a British cat-and-mouse thriller that’s currently in theaters, McAvoy also stars in April 5th’s Trance. Danny Boyle’s latest directorial project, Trance follows McAvoy’s Simon, a less-than-trustworthy art auctioneer who suffers amnesia and then undergoes hypnotherapy to try and remember the whereabouts of a painting he helped to steal. The result is a mental thriller that will have you questioning just about everything within the world of the film. READ FULL STORY »
Richard Griffiths: Why the late 'Harry Potter' actor will always be Uncle Monty from 'Withnail and I' to me
The sad news of actor Richard Griffiths’ passing at the age of 65 has been unsurprisingly marked by headlines which routinely mention the Harry Potter movies. Certainly Griffiths made an impressive contribution to that franchise as he did a remarkable number of other projects, including the U.K. TV show Pie in the Sky and the acclaimed Broadway hit The History Boys, which earned him a Tony.
'You're Next' trailer: Check out the first clip for the home invasion horror-comedy...if you dare! -- VIDEO
I recently saw a screening of the excellent home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next and, for reasons which will become abundantly clear when the film hits cinemas on August 23, have had the Dwight Twilley Band’s why-was-this-never-a-hit? soft-rock classic “Looking For the Magic” on repeat in my head ever since. The movie’s first trailer features no Twilley — making highly ironic use of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day” instead — and gives little indication as to the darkly hilarious nature of director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett’s film. But the clip does accurately tease the large amount of nerve-rending mayhem to be found in the movie, whose cast includes Sharni Vinson, AJ Bowen, Re-Animator star Barbara Crampton, and indie director Joe Swanberg, amongst others.
You can check out the trailer below. Take a look and tell us what you think.
