‘[REC]4 Apocalypse’ Trailer: ‘[REC]‘ On A Boat

Like other recent horror series, [REC] is returning to its roots. In the new trailer for [REC]4: Apocalypse, Angela (Manuela Velasco) returns. She was in the first two films, remember? Only now she’s on a boat, being wisely quarantined. I’m sure that quarantine will work well – about as well as every other movie quarantine we’ve ever seen.

In fact, Apocalypse is a direct sequel to the second film, with the only bit returning from the wedding-crashing [REC]3: Genesis being the break from full shaky cam. They even brought back Jaume Balagueró, director of the first two films.

‘Goosebumps’ Synopsis Revealed

Ever since this Goosebumps movie was announced people have been wondering what it could possibly be about – which one of the must-read books that ‘90s kids craved like addicts would be transformed for the big screen? It turns out that it’s taking a completely different route all together.

It’s not so much going to be based on classics like Stay Out of the Basement or The Haunted Mask, but rather focus on R.L. Stine. Wait, what? Yeah, when a teen makes the obvious move from the city to a small town and falls for the first cute girl …

Netflix Announces Release Date For The Final Season Of ‘The Killing’

The best show you have not been watching is back from the dead for one more tale of murder and deception, both likely involving children.

When The Killing finished its third season on AMC in the fall of 2013 no one knew whether or not the show would return. The network seemed uninterested in learning what happened to Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman), but fans disagreed. Petitions were formed, forums were flooded with discussion, and a few thousand refreshes on entertainment sites later it was revealed Netflix had decided to option the show for one final …

This Is Not A Joke: A ‘Peeps’ Movie Is In Development

Easter may have come and went, but the marshmallow treat most commonly associated with the bunny side of the holiday has one more surprise of its sleeve.

News broke this morning that development is underway for a film based on the confectionery treats known as Peeps. Yes, Peeps. The sugar-coated, animal-shaped delights that fill Easter baskets, inspire vodka flavors, sit atop donuts, and in recent years even attempted crossing over into other holidays are headed for the big screen in the years to come. God, if you’re out there, now is the time when we need you most.

The one …


‘Delivery’ Trailer: Guess Who’s Having Satan’s Baby

The film industry is a crazy place where the first person to develop an idea is not always the first person to share that idea with mainstream America. Just because your film was in production first does not guarantee it will see release first. At least, not in a way that will matter once a studio or similarly large competitor rolls out their big(ger) budget version on 3000 screens with a multi-million dollar marketing campaign.

Delivery is a found footage film about a young couple learning their unborn baby is possessed by a malovent spirit. It’s a setup incredibly similar …

Go Back To The ‘80s With The ‘Ping Pong Summer’ Trailer

Michael Tully‘s Ping Pong Summer is an appropriately done coming of age film that just so happens to be set in 1985.

The trailer shows it does have its comedic moments–I mean it is about a kid who gets into a ping pong competition and tries to learn breakdancing along the way–but at the same time you can see the heart. It may remind some of 2013’s The Way Way Back being that it too tells the story of a social outcast placed in a beach town for the summer who befriends someone a lot older, and catches the eye …

Danny Boyle and Leonardo DiCaprio Circling Steve Jobs Biopic

After negotiations with David Fincher fell through last week, Sony Pictures is moving quickly to find a director for their Steve Jobs movie and THR reports the studio has already begun speaking with Danny Boyle about taking over the gig. And while Fincher was determined to land Christian Bale for the leading role, Boyle is said to have already approached Leonardo DiCaprio for the part. The pairing would represent a reunion of sorts, as Boyle and DiCaprio worked together 14 years ago on The Beach.

Not to be confused with the Ashton Kutcher-led Jobs, which was released last …

Movie buffs will be interested to see the first stills from Ryan Gosling’s Lost River. So what’s this actor got up his sleeves as a director?

While they don’t really tell you much, you can see that the movie does have that dark fantasy element to it.

Leading the cast is Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks who plays a single mother of two who’s taken to an underworld. She stars alongside Gosling’s real life …
