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 …


Movie Review: Fading Gigolo

Film: Fading Gigolo
Directed by: John Turturro
Starring: John Turturro, Woody Allen

Two cash-strapped friends toeing the line with their golden years find new income thanks to the world’s oldest profession in John Turturro’s Fading Gigolo.

It all sounds so simple at first. Murray, the aging owner of a bookstore that is currently going out of business, is asked by a female friend whether or not he knew any men she could hire to fulfill a sexual fantasy. Without a second thought, Murray recommends his close acquaintance Fioravante, and a few short conversations later the pair are preparing for …


Movie Review: ‘Wolf Creek 2′

Film: Wolf Creek 2
Directed by: Greg McLean
Starring: John Jarratt

There was a not a lot left at the end of Wolf Creek to warrant the creation of a sequel, but filmmaker Greg McLean has pulled off something akin to a flawed miracle with Wolf Creek 2. It’s bigger, slicker, and far bloodier than the original, but it also expands the universe found in the first film in ways that are wacky and – for the most part – genuinely entertaining.…

Watch Famous Last Words’ Trailer For Upcoming ‘Two Faced Charade’ Film

Famous Last Words‘ most recent album is titled Two Faced Charade. This particular album is a story, and a lengthy one at that. In addition to the album, the band supplied a written story to go along with it. It seems that storyline is not done quite yet, and the band will be releasing a Two Faced Charade film. The band hasn’t revealed what the film will necessarily be about, except for the “true story” behind the album. You can watch the teaser below the break.

According to the band, the film will be available through InVogue Records’ …


‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Sequel in the Works

It’s been two decades since the 1993 hit Mrs. Doubtfire first hit screens, and now, seemingly out of nowhere, it’s going to get a sequel.

Director Chris Columbus and Robin Williams will return and Elf writer David Berenbaum will be penning the script. The original film saw Williams, a struggling actor and newly divorced father, take on the persona of a Scottish nanny named Euphegenia Doubtfire in order to be closer to his children. It’s pretty hard to forget the burning fat suit and tire-squashed face mask that helped the film pull in $219 million domestically, $222 million internationally, a …


BUFF 2014 Review: ‘Blue Ruin’

Film: Blue Ruin
Starring: Macon Blair
Directed by: Jeremy Saulnier

A man taking revenge on the person who murdered his parents whilst overcoming violent obstacles to get to his objective, sounds a bit familiar right? Good thing Blue Ruin is a rare film that can play off of those well-known revenge-thriller tropes while also giving the viewer a lot to chew on morally and psychologically. For a film that is marketed as 2014’s version of Death Wish, Blue Ruin is thankfully a film that begs more from the audience than just a fetishistic need to see blood letting on …

Animal Trailer

Watch the Trailer for Drew Barrymore’s Horror Film ‘Animal’

A lot of horror films seem to repeat the same plot, yet we’re still jumping every time. Animal, Drew Barrymore‘s new horror film, looks like it will be one of them.

It stars Keke Palmer, Amaury Nolasco, Parker Young, Joey Lauren Adams, Elizabeth Gillies, Paul Iacono, Thorsten Kaye, and Jeremy Sumpter. They’re trapped in a cabin, tensions rise, and one by one they begin to be knocked off. We’ve heard …



Film: Noah
Starring: Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson
Directed By: Darren Aronofsky
Written By: Darren Aronofsky, Ari Handel

The human race has always tried to find meaning for their lives. Having a great creator is a comforting thought. Of course there is someone in the skies that put us on this planet, there is no way we are just a random arrangement of molecules that just so happened to create beings capable of self awareness. That thought has been the source of religion all through the ages. Whether it be the old Egyptian gods like Ra, the Norse warrior …

Art is a hard thing to define. Sure, the first thing that comes to mind is paintings and sculptures, but music and film are also forms of art. The funny thing about art is that it is subjective. Some people will look at a painting by the masters …

Lykke Li Du Ar Den Ende

Hear the New Lykke Li Song “Du är den ende” From Crime Thriller ‘Tommy’

She sings, she dances, she acts. Swedish singerLykke Li is a jack of all trades, and she’s set out to prove so by starring in a new Swedish crime thriller called Tommy. In addition to acting in the film, she’s also contributed a song to the soundtrack called “Du är den ende” (because putting out a new album, I Never Learn, on May 5 wasn’t enough).

Tommy is directed by Tarik Saleh, and the way her song sounds would imply it will have you more intrigued than frightened. “Du är den ende” (which translates to “You Are …


West Memphis Three Go Hollywood In First Trailer For ‘The Devil’s Knot’

The last two decades have been littered with books, documentaries, and televised investigative specials on the crime and ensuing trial most now refer to simply as ‘The West Memphis Three.’ A fictionalized version of events was bound to make its way to the big screen eventually, and in 2014 Image Entertainment will be one of the first to try and tackle those terrible events in 1993 with the new ‘true crime’ film, The Devil’s Knot.

Featuring Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth, Dane Dehaan, and several other notable celebrities, The Devil’s Knot will attempt to squeeze one of the strangest and …
