‘As God Says’ Trailer: Takashi Miike Adapts Bloody Popular Comic

At the end of last month, we learned that there is an adaptation of  Takashi Miike‘s Audition pending. The response was mixed at best. Now, at the end of this month, we’re much more excited for an adaptation by, not of, Miike.

As God Says was a 2011-12 comic book written by Muneyuki Kanshiro and drawn by Akeji Fujimura that, according to Variety, has sold 1.5 million paperback copies. The plot is a familiar, and suddenly popular, one – kids forced to kill each other.

It immediately conjures up Battle Royale and Hunger Games, this plot “about …

‘Horns’ Trailer: Daniel Radcliffe Shows His Dark Side

In the upcoming movie Horns, Daniel Radcliffe turns into a demon. The anti-Harry Potter fanatics who claimed the movies were devil worship may say they saw this coming. Anyone tracking the eclectic and varied role choices Radcliffe has made outside of Potter should hardly be surprised by the odd choice. What is somewhat surprising is that the film’s newly released trailer actually looks like a damn good time.

Radcliffe plays Ig, who takes the blame for his girlfriend’s mysterious death. In the trailer, Ig declares in a husky American accent, “If I did kill her, I’d be a monster!” …

HOLY SH!T: ‘Deadpool’ Movie Test Footage Leaks Online

In a world overrun with superhero films it seems a little strange that Deadpool, otherwise known as the merc with the mouth, has yet to be given his own film. It’s true he’s a little more violent and a lot more profane than your typical hero, but after witnessing the footage we’re about to share I think you too will be demanding a big screen Wade Wilson adventure in the near future.

20th Century FOX has owned the rights to Deadpool for a while, and around 2010 they began to plan a solo film for the long-running comic hero. The …

First Trailer For ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1′ Starts The Revolution

The first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 has debuted via Facebook and has started the revolt against The Capitol and President Snow! You can view the trailer after the jump.

From the looks of it, Francis Lawrence (director of I Am Legend and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) seems to have made the universe of Panem all the more epic than it was in the preceding film. We get multiple shots teasing characters like Cressida (Game of Throne‘s Natalie Dormer) and the lead of the Capitol revolt, President Alma Coin (portrayed by the legendary …

First ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Footage Revs Its Way Onto The Net

Just only yesterday did director George Miller (creator/director of the Mad Max trilogy) debut extended footage of Mad Max: Fury Road to a roaring crowd inside Hall H at San Diego Comic Con.

Judging by the footage, it looks as if Mad Max is back in the best way possible. This new entry reportedly takes place after the events of Mad Max (the first film in the original trilogy) and before the second film, The Road Warrior. This time around, Max is aiding Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a mechanical-armed woman who wants to make it back to her homeland. …

‘Lucy’ Defeats ‘Hercules’ With an Astonishing $44 Mil

Somehow, someway, Scarlett Johansson’s latest lead effort has done the unexpected and acquired a hefty $44 million dollar gross this opening weekend. Clearly, this news wouldn’t be as shocking if its major competitor wasn’t starred by heavyweight Dwayne Johnson, whose action-packed film, Hercules, had only scooped up about $29 million, according to Rentrak.

Lucy’s success can be pointed off to its story: Yes, female-led films tend to not perform so well in the box office, but there’s still such an original plot that manages to pique audience interest just enough to convince them to choose it over a household …

Saturday is known as movie day for many Comic-Con International attendees, and during the Legendary Pictures panel this morning fans of all things monsters received the surprise of a lifetime when studio head Thomas Tull confirmed plans for Godzilla 2.
