Alexander Aja, the man behind Piranha and the recent remake of The Hills Have Eyes, is in negotiations to direct Undying Love.
Based on the graphic novel of the same name, it follows a man who falls in love with a vampire - they're from two different worlds and obstacles conspire to keep them apart. So far, so reverse-Twilight I hear you say.
A brand new red-band trailer for upcoming comedy 21 Jump Street has debuted online and, to my surprise, actually looks quite amusing. You can see for yourself over on Coming Soon.
Welcome to another double feature and after last week’s metal fest it’s a slight change of pace this time out. This week we focus on some prime examples of men who are old enough to know better getting up to no good.
The 7/7 London terrorist attacks saw the term cleanskin enter the lexicon, with the expression being used to describe a terrorist previously unknown to the security forces. These were seemingly normal members of society who had been radicalised to the point that they were willing and able to carry out such atrocities. Writer and director Hadi Hajaig’s third feature examines the nature of the journey of one such cleanskin, Ash (an impressive and terse Abhin Geleya), the head of a cell planning a series of attacks in London in the week before a general election, alongside the tale of secret service agent Ewan (a fulminating Sean Bean) who is tasked with stopping the terrorists at all costs.
With eight Academy Award nominations (and two wins) for his most recent effort, There Will be Blood, one would expect Paul Thomas Anderson to have little to no trouble securing studio money for his subsequent work. Indeed, when word got out in 2009 that he was working on his next project, The Master, it would have been hard to believe that 2012 would roll in with still no release date confirmed.
Erstwhile preserve of Robert Redford and his Park City, Utah chums, the Sundance Film Festival broadens its horizons by landing at the cultural vacuum that is the O2 arena for four heady days at the end of April.
Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception, Moneyball, The Dark Knight Rises - who am I thinking of? If you said 'Christopher Nolan', then you'd be close but not quite right. If you said 'Kermit The Frog', then I suggest you're taking either too many pills or not enough...
Wally Pfister is one of the premier cinematographers working in the film industry today. As noted above, he has a seven-film association with Christopher Nolan, which has seen him earn an Academy Award in 2010 (for Inception) after a previous three nominations had gone unfulfilled (Batman Begins, The Prestige and The Dark Knight).
Starring Ryan McCoy, Brett Rosenberg, Abigail Richie, Ashley Bracken and directed by Howie Askins, Evidence is a bone chilling ‘found footage’ delight. Once the horrors begin they do not stop dragging the audience on a scare-a-second ride that ends with a shocking twist.
It has some rather impressive reviews for a low-budget schlocker, and takes the Paranormal Activity template, messes with its head, and presents something different and thoroughly unpleasant.
Over 18s only need apply...
Arriving on DVD on 12th March 2012, Evidence is courtesy of Showbox Home Entertainment and we have three copies to give away.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel hires an exorcist and chases away The Woman in Black.
When they were pitching the idea for Project X they clearly had what they saw as a winning gimmick. It was to be a bawdy teen comedy combined with the found-footage genre set over the course of an epic party. Todd Phillips, of The Hangover and Old School fame, was producing while up and coming music video director Nima Nourizadeh was at the helm. There was to be foul language, topless young ladies and debauched teenage antics. What could possibly go wrong? Well, it would appear many things, the most important of which is that it just isn’t funny.
