The zombie apocalypse heyday has seemingly come and gone, leaving us with a few truly inspired gems like 28 Days Later, Zombieland, and Shaun of the Dead. But, much like zombies themselves, the genre just doesn’t die, leaving plenty of opportunity for filmmakers to test out their own reimaginings of a familiar trope. This, as it turns out, is a good thing, as in the wake of zombie movie madness comes The Girl With All the Gifts.

The girl looks harmless. She has kind eyes and a sweet smile. She speaks politely to the armed guards who come to retrieve her from her prison cell. She’s the start student in her class. But there must be a reason she’s always shackled or a wheelchair, and the prison guards keep assault rifles trained on her at all times.

Anyone familiar with Richard Adams’ Watership Down can attest to its grim nature, but an upcoming animated miniseries for The BBC and Netflix at least has a bright outlook on its cast. Not only can Star Wars lead John Boyega and several X-Men count themselves among the new voices, so too can Gemma Arterton and more.

‘Hansel and Gretel’ Sequel May Have Been Flunked to TV Series

by Kevin Fitzpatrick October 15, 2015 @ 10:44 AM
Remember Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters? A dumb idea on paper that seemed appropriately dumb in execution, but made enough money internationally to theoretically drag poor Jeremy Renner into a sequel? Well, ol’ Hawkeye may have been let off the hook, as Paramount is reportedly scrapping its sequel plans in favor of a TV series.

‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 2’ Is Really Happening, Now Has a Director

by Britt Hayes August 8, 2015 @ 1:50 PM
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 seems like one of the more unlikely sequel developments in recent years, but perhaps Paramount is seizing on the increased popularity of Jeremy Renner…or something. Like many commercial directors before him, Bruno Aveillan will leap from TV commercials to commercial filmmaking, as he’s just been tapped to helm the new sequel.

‘The Voices’ Trailer: Ryan Reynolds’ Pets Tell Him to Kill People

by Jacob Hall January 8, 2015 @ 3:44 PM
After years of trying and failing to become a franchise-friendly leading man, Ryan Reynolds may have finally found his true calling: starring in pitch black comedies about crazy people who murder women on the order of their pets. At lest that’s the premise of ‘The Voices,’ a deranged little movie that won its fair share of fans on the festival circuit last year. Now that the new trailer has arrived, we can see why: this thing looks nuts.

'The Voices' Review

There's nothing funny about schizophrenia. 'The Voices' understands this, and shows the horror of the disease. And then has you cracking up anyway. It's this diabolical blend of shock and candy-colored kitsch without mockery that makes this first English-language film from Marjane Satrapi ('Persepolis,' 'Chicken with Plums') so unique and, to be honest, something that will turn most people off.

'Runner Runner' Review

“What can't Justin Timberlake do?” said the internet after the performer dominated 2013 with the release of two albums, a musical turn in Cannes favorite 'Inside Llewyn Davis,' and a handful of Jimmy Fallon late-night sketches that all went viral. 'Runner Runner' suggests there's really one thing: convince us he's anyone but Timberlake.
'Lincoln Lawyer' director Brad Furman directs the middling thriller, another gambling-infused escapade from 'Rounders' writers Brian Koppelman and David Levien that packs the integrity of their previous efforts without any spark. The writing duo can talk the poker talk, this time immersing their script in the seedy world of online betting. Their leading man can't keep up.
