Back on May 19th 2014 we shared with you a photo of JJ Abrams’ note to the cast and crew of Star Wars Episode VII. Well now that filming is wrapping up, JJ and the other producers have sent out a less personal (read: not hand written) note to the cast and crew on their final day of work. See that note, after the jump.

I know, it’s too early to start throwing Christmas movies at you. But this only looks like a Christmas movie. In fact, I believe this trailer for Jingle All the Way 2, starring Larry the Cable Guy, is actually a bunch of footage dressed up as a real movie for Halloween. Sadly, Larry does not play the character originated by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1996 movie. That might be a pretty good trick. He’s just another dad trying to get a great gift for his kid. Hint: this Jingle All the Way 2 trailer is not the gift. Read More »
Like the torn-apart Frank Cotton in the original film, Hellraiser keeps trying to pull itself back together. Harvey Weinstein has experimented with reboot and sequel ideas for the past few years, attaching a couple different directors at different times for projects that ultimately failed. But a year ago Clive Barker revealed that he had pitched Weinstein on a loose remake idea that the producer liked. Suddenly, Barker was reunited with his directorial debut and working on the newest version of the tale.
Now Barker has finished the second draft of the film that will reboot and expand upon the story seen in the original Hellraiser. (And which was created in Barker’s novella The Hellhound Heart.) A few details are below, thanks to the author. Read More »
After multiple successful TV shows with partner Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant didn’t have the same success with the HBO show Hello Ladies. It had some fans, both critical and general, but never caught hold of pop culture like other HBO shows and was thought to be done after one season. Well, in classic Merchant fashion, the series is getting one more shot to wrap everything up. HBO will air Hello Ladies: The Movie on November 22nd at 10 p.m. Read More »
The Gambit movie just took a big step forward. We know that Channing Tatum is set to play the character in a film from Fox that will likely connect to the existing X-Men franchise. And now the film has a screenwriter: Josh Zetumer (the RoboCop reboot) will script. But the interesting bit for long-time comic book fans is that Zetumer’s script will be based on a treatment from one of the most significant X-Men comic book writers and the character’s co-creator, Chris Claremont.

Ask any horror fan worth their weight in blood and they’ll say The Cabin in the Woods is one of the best horror films in the past few years. That’s mostly because it’s not only a horror movie. It’s a satire, a comedy, a mystery and a sci-fi action film all rolled into one. Written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, The Cabin in the Woods is a film that lives and dies on not only the audience’s knowledge of horror films, but each character’s knowledge as well.
A new video has been posted online that breaks that statement down. It attempts, and admittedly comes close, to calling out every single reference in The Cabin in the Woods. Check out The Cabin in the Woods references video below. Read More »
Several dozen superhero movies will be in cinemas over the next six-plus years. One of the main reasons for that crowded release calendar is Christopher Nolan. The director’s realistic, gritty take on Batman spawned a trilogy of films that won Academy Awards and grossed billions. It was proof to audiences and executives alike that superheroes can, and should, be taken seriously.
But will the man himself ever make another superhero movies? It’s possible, if unlikely. Read the complicated Christopher Nolan superhero movies comment below. Read More »
