The Daniel Radcliffe-starring Horns, the horror anthology sequels V/H/S Viral and ABCs of Death 2, and the documentary Lost Soul — which concerns the infamous production of box-office bomb The Island of Dr. Moreau — will all play at this year’s Los Angeles genre festival Beyond Fest, which announced its lineup today.

The three best heist films, according to 'Drive Hard' director Brian Trenchard-Smith

Drive-Hard

There’s only one director who can claim to have introduced the world to Nicole Kidman (in 1983’s BMX Bandits) and directed two Leprechaun films (1995’s Leprechaun 3 and 1997’s Leprechaun 4: In Space). That director’s name? Brian Trenchard-Smith.

See the first clip of Samuel L. Jackson in TIFF feature 'Big Game'

big-game

Finnish writer and director Jalmari Helander made a big splash with 2010’s Rare Exports, the tale of a giant, monstrous Santa Claus. How do you follow that? The answer arrives at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival in the form of Big Game, which makes its world premiere at the event tomorrow night when it kicks off TIFF’s Midnight Madness strand.

Samuel L. Jackson stars in the film as an American president who, following an attack on Air Force One, is pursued through the Scandinavian wilderness by a band of killers. The only person who can help him survive: a 13-year-old boy, played by Rare Exports actor Onni Tommila.

Big Game costars Ray Stevenson, Ted Levine, Felicity Huffman, Victor Garber, Jorma Tommila, Mehmet Kurtulus, and the always watchable Jim Broadbent. Watch Jackson and Onni Tommila in the exclusive first clip from the film below. READ FULL STORY

Big Trouble in Little Downton: When Dan Stevens met Kurt Russell

the-guest

Downton Abbey fans may be a tad surprised by Dan Stevens’ recent choice in roles, which include a gun-toting Kentucky army veteran in the bananas action movie The Guest (out Sept. 17) and a New York drug dealer in the Liam Neeson-starring private eye thriller, A Walk Among the Tombstones (out Sept. 19). But such projects are very much in the wheelhouse of the man who spent three years playing the period drama’s dashing Matthew Crawley, as this writer discovered when he recently met with the actor for a feature in this week’s Entertainment Weekly. “I’m a genre fan,” he explained, over dinner at a restaurant close to where the British actor now lives in Brooklyn.

Can indie cartoon 'Hullabaloo' give new steam to hand-drawn animation? -- EXCLUSIVE Q&A

hullabaloo

Hand-drawn animation needs a hero, and the latest project to champion the technique is an upstart steampunk adventure  overseen by a group of veteran Disney and DreamWorks artists.

Hullabaloo is the Victorian era sci-fi story of Veronica Daring, a young scientist who goes on a quest to find her kidnapped inventor father. The title refers not just to the ruckus she causes, but is the codename for her secret, crime-fighting identity.

To complete her mission, Hullabaloo’s going to need friends, cunning, intelligence, and — in the real world, at least — some money. That’s where Indiegogo comes in with a fundraising campaign by creator James Lopez to raise $80,000 to produce a proof-of-concept short.

The dream: a full-length, hand-drawn feature film — something none of the major film studios plan to make in the foreseeable future.

The Dowdle brothers talk about shooting their horror-thriller 'As Above So Below' in the Paris catacombs

As-above-so-below

Ah, Paris. City of love, romance—and a terrifying network of skull-filled catacombs where filmmaking brothers Drew and John Erick Dowdle shot their new horror-thriller As Above So Below. “It is an extremely creepy place,” says director John Erick (Quarantine, Devil). “It really tweaks at the mind. You go down there and your pulse slows. It’s really weird.”

Watch the first trailer for Jon Stewart's 'Rosewater'

Last summer, Jon Stewart left his post on The Daily Show to shoot his debut film, Rosewater. Now, Stewart and Open World Films are giving viewers a look at his take on journalist Maziar Bahari’s memoir Then They Came for Me with the film’s first trailer.

In the trailer, the London-based Bahari, played by Gael García Bernal, leaves his pregnant fiancée to cover the 2009 Iranian presidential election. Bahari is then captured and tortured for 118 days, believed to be a spy by his interrogator. The film’s name comes from Bahari’s statement that the only distinctive feature of his captor, who kept him blindfolded, was that he smelled of rosewater. In an ironic twist, Bahari’s real-life interview on Stewart’s show was used as evidence by his captors of Bahari’s guilt, though the film looks to be too serious in tone to play up that plot point.

From the trailer, it seems Stewart’s directorial debut will use real-life news footage to ground the scenes Stewart shot, which were filmed in Jordan. Much of the trailer showcases snippets of Bahari’s introduction into the country and the torture he suffered.

Rosewater opens on Nov. 7, but will first be screened at the Telluride Film Festival and the Toronto Film Festival.
