Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney‘s (Taxi to the Dark Side) new movie Zero Days premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival and has been playing the film festival tour before it hits theaters this July. The film is about the world of cyberwar. The title is a reference to the concept of a zero day vulnerability, which is a hole in software that can be exploited by hackers. Once the flaw becomes known, the software’s author has zero days in which to plan and advise any mitigation against its exploitation.
We’ve seen many movies about these kind of things, and in today’s technology driven world, its a real threat. Magnolia Pictures has released a new Zero Day trailer, which you can watch after the jump.

Even though the cast has been officially announced, we don’t know a hell of a lot about Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok. We know that the new cast is amazing (Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, c’mon). Cate Blanchett playing the film’s mysterious and powerful new villain Hela gives us some clues. And we also know that Mark Ruffalo will be reprising his role as Bruce Banner and The Hulk for this third installment of the Thor franchise. But we didn’t expect Thor: Ragnarok to be an action-comedy about the god of thunder and a gama-rey exposed scientist traveling across space, fighting evil baddies. According to Mark Ruffalo, thats exactly what the film is.

This summer Universal Pictures and Legendary are taking a pretty big gamble on the video game Warcraft by turning it into a feature film. While the massive, multiplayer online role-playing game is extremely popular, it also has a niche audience. That audience also happens to be very dedicated to the Warcraft mythology, and they might not like seeing how certain characters, settings and more are handles in the movie from director Duncan Jones.
In order to help with that, Universal paraded around star Rob Kazinsky, an avid player of the game himself, in a previous featurette to help lend some credibility to the production for gamers who may be skeptical. Now another featurette shows how the filmmakers are bringing the video game world to life with some of the largest motion-capture sets ever created for a movie. Plus, there’s some new footage from the film itself. Watch the Warcraft featurette after the jump. Read More »

UPDATE: Bloody Disgusting reports Oculus director Mike Flanagan is in talks to direct the Halloween remake. Nothing official has been revealed yet, but for now it sounds like he’s the man for the job. Not my first choice for the job, but Oculus is certainly an underrated horror flick, so this could be a good move. Our original story from late night on May 23rd follows.
Legends never die. After years of Dimension Films trying to figure out what to do with the Halloween franchise, the company lost the rights to the iconic horror series that started with John Carpenter‘s classic film. Out of nowhere a surprise announcement came from Blumhouse Productions revealing that they are teaming with Miramax to co-finance a new Halloween sequel. Before you get all bent out of shape about the franchise not knowing when to die, director John Carpenter will be on board the film as executive producer.

The life of an aging rock star can be a depressing one as the raging lifestyle of sex and drugs begins to turn into a lonely, quiet time of reflection. That’s exactly what Rhys Ifans experiences in the new drama Len and Company as his son (Jack Kilmer) seeks his father’s approval for his own musical career.
The first Len and Company trailer has debuted, showing a pretty typical family drama from the festival circuit. But with music at the heart of the story, it should have a pretty decent soundtrack. Watch below. Read More »
Disney has been known to be a very progressive company (having brought the first openly gay sitcom character to network television in 1997 on the Ellen show) but they have recently come under fire from GLADD for not featuring even one gay character in the 11 feature films they released last year. There is no denying it, there is a lack of representation of gay characters in Disney’s big screen movies.
Fans recently petitioned the studio to give Elsa a girlfriend in Frozen 2, GLAAD called upon the studio to include LGBT characters in the Star Wars universe while the filmmakers and producers at Marvel have been very encouraging of the idea of bringing an openly gay character to the MCU. And while we might have to wait a bit longer to see an openly gay major character in one of those universes, I was happy to see what might be a lesbian couple in this morning’s Finding Dory trailer.

I have a love/hate relationship with Comixology. I love it because I can get all the comics I want without having to leave my home. I hate it because the amount of money I’m paying for comic book subscriptions have reached an all-time high. But today Comixology announced a new service called Comixology Unlimited that promises to be the Spotify or Netflix for comics (but we’ve heard that claim before). So what is this new digital comic book subscription service and why should or shouldn’t you get it? Find out the details, after the jump.
