Jaume Balagueró, who directed three out of four of the Spanish-language [Rec] horror films, is taking on a different genre in The Vault, a new thriller starring Freddie Highmore (Bates Motel, The Good Doctor) and Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth from Game of Thrones). This is a heist thriller set in Spain, in which a grizzled master thief hires an ambitious young engineer to help swipe a priceless treasure from a seemingly-impenetrable building.

Fox has released more than a few posters for The Wolverine, from director James Mangold, but the best have been a couple of images that employ a style based on traditional Japanese sumi-e ink paintings. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) was front and center on one and the Silver Samurai featured on another. Viper and Yukio also got their own ink renderings.
Now Jean Grey (Famke Janssen), whose presence in the film was once merely rumor, takes center stage on the latest poster. Check it out below. Read More »
Netflix is a big topic of conversation this week as the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) brings to the fore all manner of questions about digital connectivity and methods for providing content to the new technology being flogged at the show at the same time as ongoing Television Critics Association (TCA) events show off new titles for 2013. Netflix has been managing the transition from its first incarnation, a DVD rental house, to a nearly all-digital content platform. And to bolster the wide array of streaming movies available through Netflix, the company has a couple of high-profile pieces of original content set to premiere this year.
One is House of Cards, the political thriller series starring Kevin Spacey and produced by David Fincher, who also directed the pilot. Another is Hemlock Grove, a supernatural series based on the novel of the same name, with Eli Roth as exec producer alongside Mark Verheiden.
The first trailer for the show is online, and it features a look at the cast (Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard, Lili Taylor, Landon Liboiron and Dougray Scott) and quite a few odd sights and sounds of the Pennsylvania town in which they all come together. Read More »
Hugh Jackman finds himself in the big-screen version of a beloved property thanks to his role as Jean Valjean in Les Misérables, but in just a few months he’ll be back in his signature role of Wolverine in the character’s second standalone movie. The Wolverine, directed by James Mangold, adapts the classic 1982 mini-series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller in which the character has a formative adventure in Japan.
We’ve known the basics of the timeline (despite some conflicting statements from Mangold) but in a new interview Jackman confirms some of the timeline info, and in doing so strongly suggests the identity of a cameo that has been rumored for the film. Read More »

The very title of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters suggests a very self-consciously silly good time, as does the involvement of director Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow). So one of the disappointing aspects of the first trailer was how seriously it seemed to take the concept. Though star Jeremy Renner got to toss off a few witticisms, for the most part it seemed invested in showing us how dark the world of witch-hunting could be.
In contrast, the latest trailer seems to have a much better sense of humor. Taking full advantage of its red-band status, it gleefully dishes up blood and gore and even a healthy smattering of sexuality. Remember when Hansel suggested cutting off witches’ heads in the last trailer? The new one shows us just what that action looks like. Gemma Arterton and Famke Janssen also star. Check out the NSFW video after the jump.
