Watch The Trailer For Tim Burton’s Upcoming Film, ‘Big Eyes’

Tim Burton is known for movies that are over the top and larger than life. Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Edward Scissorhands are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his directing career. While those are some of the first movies you might think of when considering his works, they do not define his entire repertoire. In fact, he has taken part in an upcoming movie that may shake up your expectations of what he has to offer. His latest directorial effort is Big Eyes – a biographical drama based on Walter and Margaret Keane’s …

‘V/H/S Viral’ Red-Band Trailer: Third Time May Be The Bloody Charm

Following suit from its predecessors, V/H/S Viral compiles short horror films from a myriad of up and coming directors. Tied together loosely by a main story about teenagers stumbling upon some horrific videotapes, the third entry in the V/H/S series seems to amp up the insanity, gore, violence, and body horror. Releasing on October 23 via VOD and with a limited theatrical run on November 21, this venture into the horror compilation includes entries from directors such as Justin Benson (Resolution), Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead), Todd Lincoln (The Apparition), Aaron Moorhead (…

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Tusk’ Will Stay With You Long After The Credits Roll

Film: Tusk
Starring: Justin Long, Michael Parks
Directed by: Kevin Smith

Kevin Smith has gone full walrus with his latest feature, and the world of horror may never be the same.

Wallace (Justin Long) is a grown man-child who makes his living hosting a podcast with his best friend called the ‘Not-See Party.’ Their show’s premise is never explained, but suffice to say they spend a lot of time watching and commenting on ridiculous videos they find online. One clip, which features a young man accidentally harming himself in an incredibly embarrassing way, inspires Wallace to travel from his home …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Maze Runner’ Is Surprisingly Good

Film: The Maze Runner
Starring: Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario
Directed by: Wes Ball

Inability to end without setting up a sequel aside, The Maze Runner is the best YA adaptation to hit the screen in years.

I have never read The Maze Runner, but I am a firm believer that a film is truly good then I should not need to be familiar with its source material in order to appreciate the adventure it has to share. The Maze Runner begins with a boy being lifted on an elevator from deep underground to the Earth’s surface. He’s cold, wet, …

UTG INTERVIEW: Director Ned Benson Discusses ‘The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby’

To cast both Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy in your first feature film you’ve got to be a pretty special director, and after seeing The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them, I can vouch for the fact that Ned Benson has some pretty special traits to him as a filmmaker.

His first feature film, The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby, is split into three parts – HimHer, and Them – each exploring different viewpoints and perspectives as to why the relationship between Conor Ludlow (McAvoy) and Eleanor Rigby (Chastain) failed. It portrays their relationship in both a raw

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ Owes Everything To Its Cast

Film: This Is Where I Leave You
Starring: Jason Bateman, Jane Fonda
Directed By: Shawn Levy

Featuring a cast of familiar faces and a variety of issues that almost everyone can relate to, This Is Where I Leave You serves as a reminder that there truly is no place like home.

Jonathan Tropper wrote This Is Where I Leave You as a portrait of a family going through a hard time together while each individual also deals with their own personal struggles. The adaptation channels the entire story through the perspective of one son, played by Jason Bateman, as he …

Aubrey Plaza Is Now The Voice Of Grumpy Cat

Life After Beth star Aubrey Plaza has replaced Jane Lynch as the voice of Grumpy Cat in an upcoming Lifetime TV movie.

I know movies made for television are not something we cover on a regular basis, but it is hard to go anywhere today without running into the image of Grumpy Cat. In the year(+) since becoming the internet’s favorite meme, Grumpy Cat has brought in millions through advertising deals, public appearances, and merchandise. This fall, Lifetime is ready to give Grumpy Cat her first feature length adventure in Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.

Yes, this is a real …

The Team Behind ‘You’re Next’ And ‘The Guest’ To Remake ‘I Saw The Devil’

We know that no movie – especially no horror movie – is safe from the remake bug. If we didn’t know that, we certainly learned it with the Audition news. It’s no surprise, then, to hear that a remake of Kim Jee-Woon’s 2010 revenge thriller I Saw The Devil has been commissioned.

There’s good news, though. It looks like this remake will be tackled by writer-director team Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard, who are close to sealing the deal

The two are among the hotter names in indie horror. Besides contributing to both V/H/S films, they gave us a …

Official ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Plot Synopsis Released

Marvel has released the official plot synopsis for its upcoming blockbuster Avengers: Age Of Ultron, sequel to the highly praised The Avengers.

It appears that crazed robotic entity Ultron will be a side-effect of a Tony Stark project gone wrong, and he will be voiced by none other than the enigmatic James Spader. Along with Spader, Earth’s mightiest heroes will include Evans’ Captain America, Downey’s Iron Man, Ruffalo’s Hulk, Hemsworth’s Thor, Renner’s Hawkeye and Johansson’s Black Widow with additional support from (ex?) S.H.I.E.L.D operatives. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will also be seen onscreen, in the form of illusive …

Film Title: The Bourne Ultimatum

Matt Damon Will Be Jason Bourne Once More

Jeremy Renner proved he could handle the reigns of a franchise he did not start with the 2012 release of The Bourne Legacy, but according a new report from Deadline he will soon step aside and let the real Jason Bourne return to his post.

Paul Greengrass and actor Matt Damon have allegedly signed on to create a new Bourne film that will be released by Universal in 2016. This is pretty shocking considering the fact Greengrass once told Deadline he felt the character of Jason Bourne had nowhere to go after regaining his memory. I guess money really …

Meta ‘Veronica Mars’ Spinoff ‘Play It Again, Dick’ Premieres Online

The world is still waiting to learn whether or not the Kickstarter funded Veronica Mars movie made enough money at the box office to warrant a proper sequel, but in the meantime the show’s cast have reunited for a new web series that is sure to make fans squeal with joy.

Play It Again, Dick is perhaps the most meta idea for continuing a hit series without actually continuing a hit series. The web series, which premiered today on CWSeed, focuses on actor Ryan Hansen and his Dick Casablancas character. Hansen plays himself, or at least a fictionalized version of …
