Nicolas Winding Refn’s highly-anticipated follow-up to the divisive Only God Forgives began filming this year in Los Angeles, and while there’s been a considerable amount of interest in The Neon Demon, it’s taken a while for a studio to snatch up the distribution rights. Amazon has stepped forward, adding Refn’s latest to their growing slate of exclusive releases and giving the film a 2016 release date. In addition, we have a new photo from the upcoming film, featured above.

About Ray caused a bit of a stir some months ago when Elle Fanning was cast in the titular role of Ray, a transgender teen boy transitioning from female to male.

This should be great news for fans of both Nicole Kidman and director John Cameron Mitchell: the actress is re-teaming with her Rabbit Hole director for another film, this one based on the Neil Gaiman short story How to Talk to Girls at Parties. So that’s good news for fans of Gaiman, as well.

One of our most anticipated upcoming projects is Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon, the director’s follow-up to Drive and Only God Forgives. In keeping with the aesthetic of those films, the first images from his new horror project feature a lovely Elle Fanning doused in neon lighting and dripping with blood. It’s almost too painful to know we probably won’t see this movie until 2016.

Elle Fanning began her career in the shadow of her older sister Dakota, already a star from films like ‘I Am Sam’ and ‘Man on Fire.’ In recent years though, she’s given the elder Fanning a run for her money, turning in strong performances in blockbusters like ‘Maleficent’ (she really looked like she was sleeping!) and working with directors like Francis Ford Coppola (‘Twixt’), Cameron Crowe (‘We Bought a Zoo’), and Sally Potter (‘Ginger & Rosa’). To that impressive list of filmmakers you can now add another big name: Nicolas Winding Refn, as TheWrap reports that Elle Fanning is currently “in negotiations” to star in Refn’s next project, a horror movie called ‘The Neon Demon.’

by Mike Sampson November 18, 2014 @ 7:18 PM
With every new ‘X-Men’ movie comes new mutants (no, not the New Mutants) and ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will be no exception. While some may say that the ‘X-Men’ films are perhaps a little too overstuffed with every mutant they can get their hands on (did we really need Sunspot or Blink?), it’s hard to deny to return of Cyclops and Jean Grey; major characters and core mutants who will make their long-awaited appearance in the new era of “young” ‘X-Men’ films. So, now that we know we’ll see these characters, it’s time to find out who is going to play them in the movie.

'Maleficent' Sneak Peek: Sleeping Beauty Gets Pricked in New Clip and Featuette

In the latest clip and featurette for 'Maleficent,' Angelina Jolie suggests the film is faithful to the original story, and that her character loves being evil. We always figured that this film was a more modern take that cast Maleficent as the possible hero of the story, though this clip doesn't answer that question entirely. Which makes us curious how it plays out.
