What sounds better than a new movie from ‘Ex Machina’ filmmaker Alex Garland? How about a sci-fi movie about four women played by Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson (‘Creed’), Gina Rodriguez (‘Jane the Virgin’) and Jennifer Jason Leigh? Now let me raise you with one more addition: Oscar Isaac. If that news doesn’t have you doing the Oscar Isaac ‘Ex Machina’ dance, nothing will.

‘Amityville: The Awakening’ Trailer: Something’s Not Right in Jennifer Jason Leigh’s House

by Britt Hayes February 16, 2016 @ 5:27 PM
It’s been 37 years since the original Amityville Horror, which weirdly spawned 12 sequels, many of which were direct-to-video releases up until now. A new trailer for Amityville: The Awakening takes us back to the dreaded haunted house once again for the new sequel starring Jennifer Jason Leigh and Bella Thorne. And it looks about as corny as a direct-to-video sequel, but at least it has a good cast?

Alex Garland’s follow-up to Ex Machina just keeps getting better and better with each new casting addition. The female-centric cast of Annihilation already includes Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez and Tessa Thompson, all on board for Garland’s next sci-fi project. And it appears they may have some very cool new company, as The Hateful Eight star Jennifer Jason Leigh is in talks to join them.

Check Out These ‘Hateful Eight’ Action Figures

Hey, kids! Did your parents allow you to go see Quentin Tarantino’s blood-soaked nihilist Western The Hateful Eight in an act of gross negligence? You’re going to need a good analyst later in life, but for now, you can relive the politically tangled fun again and again with an all-new line of detailed action figures from NECA. All of your favorite characters from this pitch-black amorality play are here to growl baroque profanities and quietly plot to murder one another, just like in the movie! Even if Mom and Dad won’t tell you what a “black man’s dingus” is, that won't stop you from having a blast with eight new eight-inch-tall figurines based off of the cast members.

Quentin Tarantino Reportedly ‘Serious’ About Bringing ‘The Hateful Eight’ to Broadway

So far, audiences haven’t flocked to Quentin Taratino’s latest film, The Hateful Eight, as they have with his last two films. Both Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained grossed over $120 million, but The Hateful Eight looks like it will be lucky to get to $50 million. This despite the 70mm roadshow version that encouraged audiences to see the film in theaters. A large part of the disappointing box-office take so far, is due in no small part to opening up against Star Wars: The Force Awakens, aka the Biggest Movie of All-Time, but Tarantino is not backing off his latest movie, instead doubling down and moving forward with plans to mount a stage production of his latest movie in London and New York.

‘The Hateful Eight’ Review: Quentin Tarantino Makes the Old West New Again

Quentin Tarantino is the master of the comeback. Throughout his career, he’s rediscovered and revitalized the careers of one faded star after another; John Travolta in Pulp Fiction, Pam Grier in Jackie Brown, David Carradine in Kill Bill. Tarantino’s latest, The Hateful Eight, is his boldest reclamation project yet, an attempt to rejuvenate not just a single actor’s fortunes, but an entire medium of storytelling.

The rest of you will have to wait a couple more weeks to see The Hateful Eight, but if you're feeling mighty anxious to lay eyes on Quentin Tarantino's latest, we have several new clips from the film, offering eight (in)glorious minutes of footage.
