Over the past decade, it feels like the zombie subgenre of horror films has been played out. The popularity of The Walking Dead on television reinvigorated zombie movies, but most haven’t done anything original with the concept. There have been fresher approaches to zombies with films such as Zombieland, Warm Bodies, Life After Beth, Maggie and Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, but 28 Days Later was probably the last great zombie movie.
However, it looks like the United Kingdom might have another great zombie thriller waiting to be unleashed. The Girl With All the Gifts trailer has just arrived online, showing off the film adaptation of M.R. Carey‘s novel of the same name. The film follows a contingent of soldiers and scientists researching a group of children who are infected with a zombie pathogen, but somehow still control their thoughts and emotions, despite still have a desire to eat human flesh. Among the group, one girl named Melanie seems to be the key to finding a cure. Read More »

The trailer for Disorder appears to be selling a paint-by-numbers thriller, but everything else about the movie seems to suggest that there’s more going on here than meets the eye. For starters, there’s Matthias Schoenaerts and Diane Kruger in the lead roles and you’d be hard-pressed to name a movie where those two phoned in their lead roles. And then there’s director Alice Winocour behind the camera, who co-wrote last year’s critically acclaimed drama Mustang. Even if the trailer is selling an accurate portrait of Disorder, there’s a definite chance it will be a fair bit more interesting than your boilerplate Hollywood action movie.

In Hollywood’s ongoing quest to revive any and every existing I.P., they’ve dug down deep and come up with an 88-year-old vigilante. Paramount is reportedly developing a feature adaptation of The Saint, which Gen Xers and older Millennials might remember as that 1997 thriller starring Val Kilmer, Boomers might remember as that 1960s TV series starring Roger Moore, and their parents and grandparents might remember as a series of books by Leslie Charteris, a radio program, and/or a series of movies.

Hollywood often doesn’t seem to know what to do with Nicole Kidman and that’s shame. When paired with the right material, she’s one of the most interesting actresses out there and she only gets more fearless with each passing year. And since it takes that special kind of fearlessness to appear in a Yorgos Lanthimos film, it makes perfect sense that she has joined the cast of The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Delightful, twisted sense.

This weekend marks the premiere of Pixar’s Finding Dory, a heartwarmer about a friendly fish who sets out to rediscover her forgotten past. But if you prefer your amnesiac heroes a little grittier and angrier, just wait a few more weeks for the opening of Jason Bourne, which brings back Matt Damon as the super-skilled spy. Twelve years have passed since the events of The Bourne Ultimatum, but that hiatus doesn’t seem to have mellowed him out one bit. If anything, the new Jason Bourne spot suggests, he’s only gotten more intense.
To be fair, Jason Bourne has plenty of reason to be upset. In the latest preview, Jason Bourne yells some spoiler-y stuff about the motives that got him into this whole mess to begin with, which may or may not turn out to have been built on lies.
Returning with Damon to the franchise is Paul Greengrass, who helmed the second and third Bourne movies, and Julia Stiles, who starred opposite Damon in earlier installments. Newcomers to the series include Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander, Ato Essandoh, and Vincent Cassel. Watch the Jason Bourne spot below. Read More »

After turning in the best performance of his career in Creed (and earning an Oscar nomination for his troubles), it certainly looks like Sylvester Stallone plans to keep that quality streak going. Why else would he team up with director Jim Mickle, one of the most interested and unheralded filmmakers around at the moment, if he didn’t want to make something that is, you know, really good? The aging action star and the Cold in July director are teaming for an untitled thriller and while this collaboration is still in the early stages, you should put this one on your radar.
