incarnate

This Blumhouse Production started shooting almost three years ago. For unknown reasons, Brad Peyton‘s horror film Incarnate has been sitting on the shelf for a while. The WWE co-production is also Peyton’s first horror movie. He previously directed San AndreasJourney 2: The Mysterious Island, and Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, so this Aaron Eckhart-led exorcism movie is uncharted territory for the director. Now there’s a new Incarnate trailer you can watch below.

Scott Pilgrm vs the World Transitions Video Essay

Even though Scott Pilgrim vs the World was praised highly by critics, resulting in an 81% on Rotten Tomatoes, the film was a disappointment at the box office for Universal Pictures. After costing $60 million to make, the movie only made just over $47 million worldwide. The film has become a bit of a cult classic, and it’s found a decent sized audience on home video, but it deserves so much more attention than it’s gotten, if only because it’s evidence of Edgar Wright’s skills as a masterful and economical filmmaker.

A new video essay examines an easily overlooked element of the graphic novel film adaptation: the transitions. If a film is directed and edited properly, each scene moves seamlessly from one into the next and you may not even notice. The Scott Pilgrim vs the World transitions are some of the most efficient and meticulously planned, so much that you maybe didn’t realize how many of them happen in a short span of screentime.

New Jurassic World 2 Character

Over the past couple months, we’ve been getting little tidbits here and there about Jurassic World 2. Technically, this could also be called Jurassic Park 5, but since we’re dealing with a whole new franchise, it’s probably easier to have the distinction between what came before and what’s happening now. Now we know Jurassic World 2 will keep one tradition from the ongoing franchise alive.

A new casting call for Jurassic World 2 reveals some vague details about a new character, and it’s a kid. Which means we’ll continue the tradition of having precocious kids run from dinosaurs yet again. Find out more about the new Jurassic World 2 character after the jump. Read More »

fast 8 oscar

While making the promotional rounds for Furious 7 back in 2015, Vin Diesel started saying some pretty nutty stuff about how the latest entry in the Fast and Furious series deserved to get a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards. And while the seventh entry in this increasingly insane action series ended up being a critical success and a box office smash, it was left high and dry during awards season…which surely surprised no one except Diesel.

It’s hard to tell how much of his Fast and Furious Oscar talk was just Diesel trying to snag some easy headlines or it was just him being an endearing and earnest oddball (his Facebook page certainly suggests the latter). But whatever the case, he’s breaking out some similar chatter for the upcoming Fast 8.

2016 Back to the Future Fan Celebration

UPDATE: The creators of this event have reached out to let us know that this event has been postponed until 2017. The even’ts spokesperson said:

“We want to make this event the best it can be in order to not taint the BTTF brand at all, and things were not coming together to make that possible, so we made the tough, but necessary, decision to postpone the event.”

Our original article from September 27, 2016 follows below.

Last year brought endless amounts of celebration revolving around Back to the Future. Not only did it mark the 30th anniversary of the original time travel film from director Robert Zemeckis, but it also marked the year in which Doc Brown and Marty McFly traveled into the future in Back to the Future Part II. There were endless screenings, fan gatherings, and tons of new memorabilia released. But just because those milestones are passed us doesn’t mean fans are done celebrating.

The first annual Back to the Future Fan Celebration is coming next month, and the festivities will be happening at a location that will be very familiar to fans of the time travel franchise: Twin Pines Mall. Get the details on the 2016 Back to the Future Fan Celebration after the jump. Read More »

Chris Pratt training raptors at a children's hospital

Even though Jurassic World 2 is a long ways off from hitting theaters, the anticipation is still high for the sequel. While Jurassic World treaded plenty of familiar territory with endless homages and references to the original Jurassic Park, this sequel should allow the story to head in an entirely different direction. Just recently writer/producer Colin Trevorrow revealed that Jurassic World 2 would be a parable for animal abuse, and now the sequel is getting compared to arguably the most revered sequel of all time by director J.A. Bayona.

Jurassic World 2 Details

We won’t see Jurassic World 2 hit theaters until the summer of 2018, but with production slated to start sometime next year, little tidbits about the sequel are starting to surface here and there. We know that the film directed by J.A. Bayona will be the second chapter in a trilogy, and it will be suspenseful and scary, with more animatronics brought in this time. But we probably shouldn’t expect Sam Neill to return as Alan Grant.

However, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow, who is producing the sequel, did recently reveal one thing we can expect: Jurassic World 2 will be a parable for animal abuse and experimentation. Find out more below. Read More »
