Boy Next Door trailer

We knew Jennifer Lopez as an actress before we knew her as a singer, but it’s been a long time since she’s had a real hit film. Sure, Ice Age: Continental Drift made lots of money, but she only lent her voice to that one. Who even remembers that ParkerWhat to Expect When You’re Expecting, and The Back-Up plan even existed, let alone that she was in them?

Nevertheless, she keeps on keeping on, and the next stop in her cinematic journey will be a thriller called The Boy Next Door. The movie itself doesn’t look all that promising, frankly, but at least the Boy Next Door trailer is kind of entertaining, in a so-bad-it’s-good sort of way. Check it out after the jump.

1/6th Scale Hot Toys DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future

In July, Hot Toys announced they would be producing a Back to the Future 1/6th scale Marty McFly Figure as part of their Movie Masterpiece line. The first photos of the Michael J Fox-replica Marty McFly figure was very impressive, but what was in the background of the photos got even more buzz: a 1/6th Scale DeLorean Time Machine replica. From what I hear, Hot Toys only created the vehicle as set dressing for the Marty figure, but the response at Comic Con 2014 (where the figure was on display with the car) convinced them to make it a reality.

And today they have released new photos of the prototype, along with information about the features of the collectible, price and more. Since I was a child, I always wanted top own a DeLorean time machine — this might be my only (reasonably affordable) chance.  Hit the jump to learn more about the Hot Toys DeLorean Time Machine.

Dracula Untold

Universal Pictures is getting ready to reboot all of their Universal Monsters. The last film not part of this new era is Dracula Untold, a standalone blend of fact and fiction that becomes a pseudo-Dracula origin story. Luke Evans (Fast and Furious 6, The Hobbit) is Prince Vlad of Transylvania, a just ruler who leads a peaceful life with his family. That changes when his country is invaded by a seemingly unbeatable enemy, leading Vlad to make the ultimate sacrifice to save his people. Vlad himself was a real person and the inspiration for Dracula. Whether or not he actually became a vampire named Dracula is probably less true.

Directed by Gary Shore, Dracula Untold opens October 17. Check out the latest Dracula Untold trailer, this one from Japan, below. Read More »

Jaws-header

In today’s Hollywood, the movie poster is an afterthought. Dozens of marketing and advertising executives justify their jobs by demanding everyone’s input be represented and, as a result, anything interesting or provocative is lost. We all remember this, right? And this?

The homogenous nature of modern movie posters is, of course, a generalization. There are some movie posters with artistic merit but the percentage has dropped significantly over the decades. What is definitely true, though, is the iconic posters of the past have all but gone away and, in one case, that’s quite literal.

According to Roger Kastel, the artist who made the unforgettable poster to Steven Spielberg‘s Jaws, his original 20 x 30 inch painting went missing around the time of the film’s release. Read more about the Jaws poster art below.

Vampire Lestat director

Universal only just put more energy into its efforts to adapt Anne Rice‘s vampire novels into films, as the studio renewed the option on 13 of Rice’s “Vampire Chronicles” books. The studio isn’t wasting any time getting moving on that option, as The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone is now in early talks to write and direct an adaptation of The Vampire Lestat, which was the centerpiece of Rice’s original trilogy of vampire novels.

The Vampire Lestat is a story very rooted in the ’80s, and we don’t know if this would be a period piece, or a modernized adaptation. If things come together, Boone would make this film after doing The Stand for Warner Bros.

Paul Giamatti Straight Outta Compton

The members of N.W.AEazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella and MC Ren — did things their way, but still needed some music industry connections to get their songs out to a big audience. The guy they turned to was Jerry Heller, who was best known for living on the opposite end of the pop spectrum, working with bands like Journey, ELO, and REO Speedwagon. The guy had connections and money; Heller and Eazy-E co-founded N.W.A’s label Ruthless Records, and Heller managed the group. Now, Paul Giamatti will play him in the film bio of the group, Straight Outta Compton.
