“Beauty isn’t everything; it’s the only thing,” Keanu Reeves‘ (John Wick) character claims in The Neon Demon international trailer. We haven’t seen much of Reeves in the past trailers for the film, and, thankfully, the international trailer continues to portray him as more of a background player. Besides plenty of neon lighting and blood, we still don’t fully know what to expect from Nicolas Winding Refn‘s upcoming film. While international trailers tend to have a habit of spoiling surprises or major plot points, this one doesn’t appear to reveal too much from the Drive and Only God Forgive director’s latest project.
Watch The Neon Demon international trailer below.

Between Matt Murdock and Arya Stark, you’d think people would have gotten the message by now: underestimate the blind at your own peril. And after Avatar, everyone should definitely know better than to dismiss Stephen Lang. But perhaps the characters of Fede Alvarez‘s Don’t Breathe don’t get the same pop culture we do, because they make the very, very terrible mistake of trying to rob a blind man played by Stephen Lang, with predictably upsetting results.
Don’t Breathe took SXSW by storm this spring, and now the first Don’t Breathe trailer has arrived to show us just why this film scared those festivalgoers silly. Jane Levy (Evil Dead), Dylan Minnette (Goosebumps), and Daniel Zovatto (It Follows) star as the young and not-blind people who unwisely get tangled up with Lang. Read More »

Maybe it’s because Nicolas Winding Refn‘s films tend to be light on plot, but whoever has been cutting the trailers for the Drive and Bronson director’s upcoming horror picture, The Neon Demon, has done an excellent job not giving away any of the film’s secrets, instead focusing far more on the picture’s atmosphere. We still don’t even know the exact significance of Keanu Reeves‘ (John Wick) role in The Neon Demon, which is a great rarity in this day and age, but we’ll soon find out more about Reeves’ mystery role. Amazon Studios, in association with Broad Green Pictures, will release Refn’s latest on June 24th.

The horror genre has always been home to good old fashioned hucksterism. William Castle would rig theaters with flying skeletons and install seats that “shocked” the audience. Alfred Hitchock famously declared that those who were late to Psycho would be denied admittance. Even the 2013 remake of Evil Dead got in on the action with one of the most audacious movie posters in recent years. The horror genre is one big dare, a challenge from a filmmaker to their audience, and I can’t help but cackle like a loon when I see a movie declare its intentions as clearly as The Woods does.
The trailer for The Woods, the newest film from director Adam Wingard, has arrived and the clacking sound you hear is the Lionsgate marketing department showing off some big brass balls. They have declared that this is one of the scariest movies ever made. That’s their message. Are you brave enough to learn for yourself?

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Director Kevin Smith is back with a movie that just might be his most insane yet. Yes, even though the Clerks filmmaker has done movies with a giant poop monster and Mark Hamill as a villain called Cock Knocker, and a horror movie with a walrus man, his Canadian-set, teenage horror comedy Yoga Hosers is the most bat shit crazy movie he’s ever made.
Some of the /Film crew caught Yoga Hosers at Sundance, and now the first trailer for the flick proves just how crazy it is. Johnny Depp is back as his goofy detective character Guy Lapointe from Tusk, but Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp (daughters of both Smith and Depp) play the chatty teens known as “The Colleens” in their first lead roles on the big screen.

I’ve been reading Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta‘s Outcast since its first issue and it’s a rock-solid horror comic, a character-driven, beautifully illustrated tale of two men doing battle with the devil himself when a series demonic possessions begin to plague their community. However, the series also feels like it was carefully conceived to double as a perfectly packaged television pitch. And here we are: the Cinemax TV series based on the comic is set premiere in a little under a month and a new trailer for the show has arrived online.

Only a few days ago news broke that Russell Crowe was being lined up for a role in The Mummy. The Australian actor was in early talks to play a Dr. Jekyll-type character in the first movie that will kick off an entire Universal monster movie universe. The intention was to have Crowe appear in a cameo-like role with the hopes of spinning off into his own movie. Now the news has been confirmed by the actor himself, and he’s given a little more detail about what we can expect from The Mummy remake. Read More »
I tend to sound like a broken record whenever I write about Universal‘s new slate of films that will unite all of their classic monster characters under one shared universe. I love the Universal monsters and think they are among the greatest figures in the history of cinema, but I remain unconvinced that a Marvel-style franchise is the best way to bring them back. Even with many talented folks working on these projects behind the scenes, it can’t help but smell…well, a little sweaty and a little desperate. But I will give anything to be wrong and for these new movies to be good.
And with that out of the way, it’s time to focus on the business at hand: the new synopsis for director Alex Kurtzman’s upcoming take on The Mummy, which stars Sofia Boutella as a new take on this iconic monster and Tom Cruise as her human nemesis.
