The first 'Into the Woods' trailer left many people scratching their heads because it featured no singing for what is ostensibly a musical and it kept Johnny Depp, one of the biggest names in the cast, completely offscreen. However, Depp's Big Bad Wolf has made the cover of Entertainment Weekly (along with the rest of the ensemble cast), giving us our first look at Disney's favorite leading man in his latest wacky costume.
Most of the focus on the upcoming 'Justice League' movie has been on Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Aquaman. Primarily because those are the most well-known characters and we know the actors playing them (Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa, respectively.) But, there's one additional member of the Justice League that will be joining the team and has already filming his 'Batman vs. Superman' appearance: Cyborg.
ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, the new 'Daredevil' talks about the Netflix show, Sean Bean joins Matt Damon in 'The Martian,' and the 'Dead Rising' movie casts a surprising actor.
We live in a world where commercial directors speak (and breathe and live) the same pop culture language as the people they've been hired to peddle all kinds of products to. The result: television advertisements have gotten more clever, more specific, and most importantly, more ready to become instant viral sensations on the internet. A new IKEA commercial, whose release in the chilly weeks of October is no coincidence, cleverly parodies one of the most famous horror movies of all time and it's pretty cool.
In news that should delight horror fans, 'The Conjuring 2' has officially secured the return of director James Wan. His involvement with the sequel was up in the air since he left horror behind to direct 'Fast and Furious 7,' but the genre that gave him his start has pulled him back in ... and we're happy to have him back.
I never watch 'Halloween' on Halloween.
That's not to say that I dislike John Carpenter's slasher classic. In fact, it's one of the best horror movies ever made and a masterpiece that I find myself revisiting at least once a year. But when I do revisit it, I tend to watch it in December. Or February. Or even in the heat of the July. The moment October rolls around, I shelve any interest I have in it.
And it's not alone. You won't find me revisiting a lot of famous, respected and beloved horror movies when the season of the witch rolls around.
ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, Jason Momoa can finally talk about playing Aquaman, Robert Downey Jr. teases his role in 'Captain America 3,' and that 'Dredd' webseries reveals a first look.
Back in 2002, Eli Roth launched himself into the modern horror scene with 'Cabin Fever' and he's been hanging around ever since. His low budget horror-comedy about obnoxious young people going to a remote cabin in the woods and battling a flesh-eating virus paved the way for the 'Hostel' films and then his constant presence as a producer on every other horror movie that heads straight to DVD. And here we are: only 12 years have passed and they're remaking 'Cabin Fever.' And Roth is producing. And they're using the same script as the original.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is 67 years old, which makes the idea of him playing an ageless, robotic killing machine in the upcoming 'Terminator: Genisys' seem oh-so-very silly [Ed. note: as silly as that title?]. However, it turns out that there's some fairly level-headed science fiction going on the explains Arnie's senior citizen appearance in the new film and it came courtesy of the franchise's original creator, James Cameron.
With 'Frozen' still a raging phenomenon and 'Big Hero 6' right around the corner, the folks at Disney Animation are probably feeling pretty good about their lives and careers at the moment. So the first news about their next film, 'Moana,' arrives at a time when the world's most famous animation studio is at a fairly incredible high and like their last major blockbuster, this is a female-led adventure. Prepare for the merchandise, parents.
