Update: Jeff Sneider at The Wrap reports that Lord and Miller have turned down the Ghostbusters 3 directing job. No potential next choice has been reported, but expect that news to come out shortly.

keanu reeves knock knock

Eli Roth made a return to directing with last year’s The Green Inferno, which will be released in the US on September 5. He’s quickly following that film with a new horror/thriller called Knock Knock, and has just set Keanu Reeves to star. This film sounds like it will be a bit different than Roth’s other directorial efforts, however, as he describes it as the result of an ambition to make “a classic psychosexual thriller.” Read More »

three new Godzilla spots

Godzilla (the monster, and possibly the film) is gigantic, but at this point Legendary and Warner Bros. are all about revealing new glimpses of the film in the smallest ways. A pair of trailers, teaser and full-length, have been very shy about showing off the monster and how he stomps around the world, preferring instead to illustrate the aftereffects of said stomping. A growing collection of TV spots is following suit, showing new footage in bite-size chunks. Today we have three new Godzilla spots,

A long “extended look” is promised for Saturday April 5, at 4pm EST / 1pm PST, so we’ll have that for you soon.  Read More »

Blood Glacier Trailer

We’ve seen more than a few films that have been heavily inspired by John Carpenter’s The Thing — one was even also called The Thing! On the surface, the awesomely-titled Blood Glacier is very much in that vein, as it follows a scientific team in the snowy Alps as the small group contends with a bunch of violently mutated animals. The effects are often practical, and between the snowy setting and the latex monsters, this is starting to look like a potentially entertaining inheritor of The Thing‘s mantle. Check out a Blood Glacier trailer below. Read More »

Rosemary's Baby tv teaser

Plenty of movies have taken inspiration from Rosemary’s Baby over the decades, including, recently, Hell Baby and Devil’s Due. But NBC is going the direct route by simply adapting Ira Levin‘s original novel into a four-part miniseries.

Zoe Saldana and Patrick J. Adams play Rosemary and her husband Guy, a young couple who’ve just moved from New York to Paris. When they discover that she is pregnant with their first child, they’re initially thrilled. But joy turns to fear as strange things begin to happen.

While it’s not technically a remake of Roman Polanski‘s movie, the comparisons are going to be inevitable. So how does this new version stack up? Watch the first Rosemary’s Baby tv teaser after the jump and judge for yourself.

Scream 4

A year has passed since MTV greenlit a pilot based on the Wes Craven horror franchise Scream. Finally, casting has begun. We know because descriptions of the Scream TV show’s four main characters have now been revealed. While they don’t shine any particular light on how the series will tie into the films, they do give an idea of the dynamics of the show. They’re very MTV.

However, one other piece of new information does offer a significant hint at how the Scream TV show will tie into the films. Read about it all below. Read More »

‘The Purge: Anarchy’ Trailer

Purge: Anarchy trailer

The Purge: Anarchy, which acts as the sequel to last fall’s hit thriller, throws a stranger middle-class couple and a man out for revenge into the mayhem of the annual purge. That event, for those who missed the first film, is a single night per year in which all crime is legal, the better to weed out the “weaker” aspects of society. The Purge: Anarchy trailer gives vague hints about how those new characters come together, and shows off one particularly icky situation in which a parody of a charity auction turns into a night of murder for sale.
