Dragon Tattoo sequel

With every passing month the likelihood of Sony producing another film based on Stieg Larsson‘s series of Dragon Tattoo books seems to shrink. The David Fincher-directed adaptation of Larsson’s first book in the series was released in December 2011, and since then we’ve heard about a screenplay being written for The Girl Who Played With Fire, with Fincher saying as recently as last fall that he thinks more films will be produced. But there’s no apparent movement on Sony’s end, and now Rooney Mara, who played Lisbeth Salander (aka the title character) says the Dragon Tattoo sequel is probably dead. Read More »

New Wayward Pines trailer

M. Night Shyamalan produces the show Wayward Pines, based on the novel Pines by Blake Crouch, and the show really looks like some bizarre combination of Twin Peaks and The Prisoner. I’ve made that comparison before, but this new Wayward Pines trailer really hammers it home. Matt Dillon is a Secret Service agent investigating the disappearance of two other agents, when he finds himself trapped in a small town that seems friendly enough, but is actually far more sinister than its outward appearance suggests. Check out the new trailer below. Read More »

New Line Will Make a New ‘Shaft’ Movie

new Shaft movie

Shaft was born in the early ’70s, when Richard Roundtree played the seductive and violent private detective John Shaft for director Gordon Parks. The story continued in two sequels and a short TV series, then was picked up years later, in 2000, when Samuel L. Jackson played John Shaft’s nephew, with the character at the center of a film directed by John Singleton. Now New Line wants to make a new Shaft movie — we just don’t know what this one will look like.

The Psychopath Test

Universal Pictures is doing more business with Scarlett Johansson, no surprise after Lucy turned into a surprise hit. Johansson will star in The Psychopath Test, a film directed by Jay Roach based on the book of the same name by Jon Ronson, who also wrote The Men Who Stare at Goats. The book looks at ways that psychopaths are diagnosed, despite (or because of) their ability to charm and manipulate; the film will be written as a psychological thriller.

Spring trailer

Spring was one of the movies that had the most people talking at Fantastic Fest last year, and it was the one I was most bummed to miss. It comes from writer/directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who previously made the intense and unsettling film Resolution, and features Lou Taylor Pucci as an American backpacker who meets a beguiling young woman (Nadia Hilker) in Italy… and then discovers that she has secrets that set her apart from every other girl he’s ever met. This Spring trailer is pretty great, starting off with a pretty normal tone before getting really weird. Check it out below. Read More »

‘Crimson Peak’ Trailer: Ghosts Are Real

Crimson Peak trailer

Here’s the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak, which stars Jessica Chastain, Tom HiddlestonMia Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam in a gothic haunted house movie, but probably one that has some big-budget set pieces to provide scares and strangeness.

A young woman (Wasikowska) is romanced by a man (Hiddleston) whose sister (Chastain) seems to have secrets, and maybe some real issues related to their cloistered upbringing in a giant old house. And judging by the way this trailer ends, there are seriously freaky reasons for their problems. Check out the Crimson Peak trailer below, which is powered by a quiet but ominous cover of Nick Cave’s ‘Red Right Hand.’

Focus Australian trailer

This Focus Australian trailer is cut very differently from the US trailer for the film, and even though it uses a lot of the same footage that we’ve seen in the previous two US trailers, it is much more about cons, plans, and distraction than anything else. The romantic angle between characters played by Will Smith and Margot Robbie is still here, but it comes across as more like part of the big machinery of the film’s cons than anything else. We see more of the plot in this trailer, but it doesn’t seem to give too much away, because even those elements are intentionally jumbled up — it’s a pretty good sales pitch. Read More »
