When you realize so little new blood gets into a genre that’s based on blood, it’s actually kind of sad. Almost every horror movie released on a massive scale is a sequel, remake or PG-13 money grab. Original ideas are hard to come by, but one that’s coming soon is Sinister. Directed by Scott Derrickson, the film stars Ethan Hawke as “a true crime novelist who discovers a box of mysterious, disturbing home movies that plunge his family into a nightmarish experience of supernatural horror.”
Sinister has some great buzz growing from the festival circuit and opens October 5. However the gang at Tugg.com is hosting a bevy of early, free screenings in cities across the country. After the jump, check out the new poster for the film and find out how you can see Sinister first. Read More »
There has rarely been something as good for Monday morning water cooler talk than HBO Sunday nights. All the way back to The Sopranos and Sex and the City up through Girls and Game of Thrones, HBO’s Sunday night line-up creates all kinds of next-day chatter amongst friends, family and co-workers, who discuss the company’s thought-provoking, exciting and controversial shows. This Monday is no different as Sunday night, Aaron Sorkin‘s latest TV show The Newsroom premiered.
The show, which was created by the Oscar-winning writer of The Social Network and creator of TV shows like The West Wing, stars Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel and Sam Waterston. It tells the behind the scenes story of a nightly cable-news TV program. Reactions following the premiere range from calling it the best show on TV to a huge misfire from Sorkin. If you don’t have HBO, you were in the dark about the show. Until now.
HBO has posted the entire 72 minute pilot episode, directed by Greg Mottola, online. Check it out below. Read More »
Nathan Drake, the star of the Uncharted games, is the video game Indiana Jones. He’s charming, he’s a bad-ass and he travels the world getting into ancient-themed adventures. In video game form, the Uncharted world was built to be cinematic and that’s why Hollywood has been trying to make a live action movie for a long time.
Unfortunately, that has yet to take place. But now anyone who wants to see these games as movies can do just that. Reddit user morphinapg edited the cinematic cut scenes from the PlayStation 3 games Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception each into their own individual movies clocking in at about two hours, three hours and three hours plus respectively. That’s an eight hour Uncharted trilogy that you can watch right now. Read More »
Disney is a prolific company with its name on a great many successes, and it likes to hide its missteps and failures. The process of doing so sometimes helps those mistakes become things of legend. Song of the South, with its politically incorrect and racist portrayals of certain characters, is likely the most famous example. Another example might be The Sweatbox, a very rarely-seen documentary about the failed making of an animated film called Kingdom of the Sun, which eventually morphed into The Emperor’s New Groove. (Pictured above.)
The Sweatbox filmmakers John-Paul Davidson and Trudie Styler were given unprecedented access to Disney’s process and the resulting film painted the executives in such a negative light, they more or less made sure the film would never been seen in public.
Until now. For a little while at least. After the jump, you can watch the rarely seen 2002 documentary The Sweatbox. Read More »

Before Todd Phillips took audiences on a Road Trip, brought it back to the Old School or gave everyone The Hangover, he immersed himself in the college fraternity experience for the whole world to see. However, the results were so shocking that few people actually did.

The aim was to uncover the truth behind rumored atrocities pledges had to endure for initiation into college fraternities. At one point, Phillips himself pledged the frat to gain access.
