friday the 13th movies ranked

Over the past week, I’ve been revisiting the Friday the 13th series with one simple, stupid goal: I was going to rank every single person killed by Jason Voorhees (and his fellow murderers) in the entire series. There turned out to be 181 of them and I ranked them here and here.

But throughout the process, other questions kept cropping up: which Friday the 13th movie is your favorite? How would you rank them? Is The New Blood really worse than Jason Takes Manhattan? So, in the interest of laying it all on the table, here is the completely correct and scientifically accurate ranking of every movie in the Friday the 13th series.

The new, long-gestating adaptation of Stephen King‘s It is currently (and finally) in post-production. Last year, the R-rated adaptation appeared in trouble after director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) parted ways with New Line Cinema over some creative differences, which was a definite blow to the project. Director Andrés Muschietti‘s (Mama) ultimately stepped in, reworked the script, and shot the horror film over the summer, and he shared plenty of images during the shoot, teasing locations and parts from the book. Now a couple more images of Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård) has been released.

Below, see the Stephen King’s It remake images.

david bowie lord of the rings

Shortly after the great David Bowie passed away earlier this year, actor Dominic Monaghan recounted the story of seeing the legendary pop icon and actor while auditioning for Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films. Naturally, this left fans wondering: which character was Bowie auditioning for and why didn’t he snag the part? Now, the whole story has come out.

rampage movie

Adapting a video game with no story must be simultaneously freeing and terrifying, a chance to use a few basic building blocks to tell the story you want to tell while also having no established foundation to build upon. Maybe that’s why it has taken five years for a movie based on the 1986 arcade semi-classic Rampage to come together – giant monsters destroying cities is an inherently cinematic concept, but there is literally no story present here beyond “giant beasts punch skyscrapers into dust.”

But Rampage is happening now and the ever-busy Dwayne Johnson is set to star, reuniting with his San Andreas director Brad Peyton. While production on the video game adaptation isn’t set to begin until next year, Peyton is already answering questions about film. Specifically, how is this going to be a film at all?

Commercials director Simon McQuoid has been set to direct the video game adaptation, which is being produced by James Wan for New Line.

Wedding Crashers 2

It’s been 11 years since Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn took matrimony by storm as John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, two expert wedding crashers who snuck into weddings and charmed the pants off any girl they could find in the aptly named R-rated comedy Wedding Crashers.

In a recent interview, Wedding Crashers co-star Isla Fisher (who had her breakout role in the comedy) said that Wedding Crashers 2 is currently in the works. Find out what the actress had to say after the jump. Read More »
