Nicolas Cage‘s child goes missing on Halloween night despite the dad’s attentive devotion to the kid’s well-being, but the good news is it isn’t his fault. As it turns out, Cage is stuck in a story in which a whole bunch of missing kids are stolen away on Halloween night thanks to the machinery of… well, something.
Is it a supernatural force, or a more down to Earth human conspiracy that just uses the trappings of Halloween to disguise its crimes? We’re not sure, but check out the Pay the Ghost trailer below and see what you can figure out.

About three and a half years ago, Bruce Willis became attached to Five Against a Bullet, an action thriller formerly set up at Columbia Pictures from Transformers and G.I. Joe franchise producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura. Then just last year, The A-Team and Smokin’ Aces director Joe Carnahan came on board the project. However, one of them has fallen away.
Joe Carnahan is still attached to direct the film, but it appears Bruce Willis (who may or may not have been fired from Woody Allen’s next movie) is no longer part of the movie. The film is also now set up at the new Suretone Pictures banner, a venture from former Geffen Records president Jordan Schur. Find out more about Five Against a Bullet below! Read More »

The first full-length trailer for Homeland Season 5 begins with Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) in a good place. She’s got a cushy private job in Berlin, she’s dating a handsome new fellow, and she finally seems to have taken to motherhood. Most importantly, she’s left behind the CIA, the source of her greatest triumphs and tribulations over the years.
… Or so she thought. This is still Homeland we’re talking about, after all. It’s not long before Carrie gets sucked back into a web of international intrigue involving shady government organizations, hackers, black-ops agents, and a rather pissed off Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin). Watch the Homeland Season 5 trailer after the jump. Read More »
It’s been a good year so far for M. Night Shyamalan, or at least a much better year than the last few. His TV series Wayward Pines had a solid audience, and his new film The Visit has drawn rave reviews as it has been previewed throughout the summer. Now it looks like the writer/director will do a new project with Jason Blum, who produced The Visit.
And the film will likely star Joaquin Phoenix, who was one of the leads of Shyamalan’s 2002 film Signs, and the 2004 follow-up The Village. What little we know about the new Joaquin Phoenix M. Night Shyamalan project is below. Read More »
This weekend brings Zac Efron’s aspiring DJ movie We Are Your Friends, but the United Kingdom has a literally more cutthroat story set in the music industry.
Kill Your Friends is a new dark comedic thriller starring Nicholas Hoult and based on John Niven‘s best-selling novel of the same name, and the first Kill Your Friends trailer has just arrived before the film’s debut at the Toronto International Film Festival. But beware, the trailer is a little NSFW with some brief glimpses of nudity and also F-bombs. Read More »

Straight Outta Compton, produced by Ice Cube based on his own life and starring his son O’Shea Jackson Jr., has proven to be box-office gold, and you can already see evidence of producers trying to kickstart projects that might imitate or borrow some of Compton’s qualities. One film sounds like it is riding Compton‘s coattails, but in fact comes from one of the producers on the film, and may pull in Cube and his son.
April 29, 1992 is a thriller set against the backdrop of the 1992 Los Angeles riots that followed the acquittal of police offers in the Rodney King beating case, as depicted in Straight Outta Compton. The story follows a father and son caught up in their own problems as the riots rage, and Ice Cube and O’Shea Jackson, Jr. are in talks to star.
Update: Another report has a quote from Cube saying they have “no plans” for this movie. More below.

Green Room, the upcoming thriller from Blue Ruin writer/director Jeremy Saulnier, features Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Alia Shawkat as members of a band who are trapped in a backwoods venue by a white power gang led by Patrick Stewart.
The movie is perched near the top of my “most anticipated films of 2015” list, and there’s some good news and bad news on that front. The good news is that Green Room has been picked up for distribution in the US by the terrific A24, which also boasts films such as The Witch (see that ominous trailer here), The End of the Tour, Ex Machina, and Slow West. The bad news is that the Green Room release isn’t set for this year.

The director of Citadel and Sinister 2 has made a new deal with Blumhouse to direct a thriller set in his native Ireland. Ciarán Foy will make The Shee, an “elevated thriller” that features supernatural elements presumably from Irish folklore about faeries. Read More »
After the opening of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the major question we all had was “how long do we have to wait for Rebecca Ferguson‘s next movie?” In fact, that next movie will probably be Florence Foster Jenkins, with Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, directed by Stephen Frears.
But the film after that won’t be Gambit, as Ferguson has reportedly dropped that possible gig for something heavier. Ferguson is in talks to join the cast of The Girl on the Train, which Tate Taylor (The Help) will direct based on the novel by Paula Hawkins.
Given that the novel is frequently praised with comparisons to the work of Alfred Hitchcock, and that Ferguson was central to Rogue Nation‘s own Hitchcock homage sequence (above) this all seems like a pretty tidy deal. Read More »
