MTV Gives Series Order to ‘Scream’

MTV scream series

Teen Wolf has guaranteed company in the film-to-TV crowd on MTV. The cable company has given a series order to Scream, the show based on Wes Craven’s defining horror series. We’ve heard, however, that the show at this point won’t feature Ghostface, the recognizable masked killer who made his on-screen debut in the original 1996 film. (The Ghostface mask was actually an existing creation, owned by the company FunWorld.) But that doesn’t mean there won’t be another killer on the loose. After all, there’s no Scream without a killer.

Premature red band trailer

/Film is proud to exclusively debut the red-band trailer for Premature. Co-written and directed by Dan Beers, Premature opens in theaters and On Demand on July 2.

In the mold of another big summer film, Premature takes the time travel conceit made popular by Groundhog Day and grafts it onto another genre. Edge of Tomorrow did the same sort of thing with sci-fi action; here, Beers does it with raunchy teen comedy.

Imagine reliving the worst, most embarrassing day of your life and over and over again. That day that includes the lead having an opportunity with the girl of his dreams, only to, well, provide the title of the movie. Premature stars John Karna (Bindlestiffs), Craig Roberts (Submarine, The First Time), Katie Findlay (The Philosophers, “The Killing”) and Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball, Wreck It Ralph). Below, check out the hilarious Premature red-band trailer, exclusively on /Film. Read More »

Not long ago, Kevin Smith and a company called Phase 4 announced a distribution partnership, in which Phase 4 would acquire low-budget films and release them under Kevin Smith’s SModcast Pictures banner.

The first pickup for the label is the wild high school comedy Bindlestiffs, directed by Andrew Edison, co-written by Luke Loftin and starring Loftin, Edison, John Karna and Will Fordyce. It premiered at Slamdance this past January. There the film, which features three teen virgins with ambitions to live out the plot to The Catcher in the Rye, won the Audience Award for Best Feature Narrative at Slamdance, and will play SXSW.

Check out a trailer for the comedy below. Read More »
