2014's most influential director: John Carpenter?

John Carpenter was once among Hollywood’s most prolific filmmakers. But the man who brought us such genre classics as Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 has only made one movie in the past 13 years—2010’s psychological thriller The Ward—and hasn’t troubled the box office in a big way since 1998’s James Woods-starring Vampires. (And Carpenter, 66, doesn’t sound like he’s in any rush to get back behind the camera: “I worked really hard for more years than I’d like to count, but now I can pick and choose things,” says the director, who most recently co-penned a comic book follow-up to his 1986 kung fu-fantasy film Big Trouble in Little China. “I was doing too much—music and writing and all this shit. I had to take a break. I’m developing a couple of things. But we’ll see. There’s no urgency.”)

First photo of Norman Reedus and Djimon Hounsou in Robert Kirkman's 'AIR'

They’re at it again. Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and star Norman Reedus are joining forces again for the movie AIR, which tells the story of two workers (played by Reedus and Djimon Hounsou) who are tasked with maintaining one of the underground bunkers set up to preserve the human race after the air outside has been rendered toxic. The bunkers are filled with sleeping tanks housing individuals seen as providing the best chance for rebuilding civilization.

AIR will be directed Christian Cantamessa and released in the spring of 2015, but we’ve got your exclusive first image from the film right here. In it, we see Hounsou (as Cartwright) and Reedus (as Bauer), who have been awoken from their sleeping tanks for their two hour shift—which occurs every six months—in the decommissioned missile silo. We commissioned Norman Reedus to tell us more about the movie, so he called in from the set this past spring and did just that.

Director's cut of Clive Barker's 'Nightbreed' to be released this Halloween

nightbreed.jpg

Author, artist, and director Clive Barker seems to have few qualms about inflicting injury on characters, as those familiar with his Books of Blood short stories or the 1987 film Hellraiser know. But Barker himself had a painful experience with his 1990 fantasy-horror film Nightbreed. The tale of a suspected serial killer (Craig Sheffer) who joins a group of freakish-looking outcasts the film was, to Barker’s enduring dissatisfaction, re-cut before its release, and some of the movie’s original elements were subsequently lost forever…

The-Congress

Robin Wright has been back in the news recently, thanks to her acclaimed performance in the Netflix show House of Cards — and the buzz around her looks set to continue this summer. Why? Because in her new film The Congress, the actress essays the role of “Robin Wright,” a fictionalized version of herself who sells her digital likeness to a Hollywood studio — allowing her computerized image to appear in any film the company wants — so she can care for her ailing son.

Box office report: 'Neighbors' evicts 'Spider-Man 2' from top spot

SUNDAY UPDATE: Neighbors is No. 1 movie at the weekend box office with an estimated $51.1 million.

ORIGINAL POST: As kryptonite is to Superman, so a kegger is to Spider-Man. That seems to be the lesson of this weekend’s box office, anyway.

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron’s new frat comedy Neighbors drank in an estimated $19.6 million at the box office on Friday, almost twice as much as the $10.1m which was caught in the web of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Sony is projecting its superhero sequel will gross $37 million for the weekend, which would give it a cumulative domestic take of $147m by the end of Sunday.

Coherence-poster.jpg

You know those trailers that reveal so much about a film it almost seems like you don’t have to watch the actual movie? Well, the clip for the sci-fi drama Coherence ain’t one of those. In fact, despite having watched the trailer several times, we really can’t tell you much at all about the plot of this film from writer-director James Ward Byrkit.

What we can tell you is that it hits select cinemas on June 20, stars Buffy actor Nicholas Brendon among others and — per the movie’s official website – concerns eight friends at a dinner party who experience a chain of reality-bending events on the night of an astronomical anomaly.
