With each passing year, the possibility of ever seeing Zombieland 2 seemed less and less likely, which makes today’s news a pleasant surprise. Director Ruben Fleischer and original screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are officially getting the band back together for the long-teased follow-up to their 2009 horror-comedy hit. No, really. It has an actual release date and everything.
Social media success of NBC’s live musicals (not to mention the actual success of The Wiz) already goaded FOX into Grease and Rocky Horror remakes, and now ABC has its own baby no one’s putting in a corner. Dirty Dancing will get the three-hour musical treatment, starring Scream Queens alum Abigail Breslin to boot.
FOX hasn’t exactly been shy about promoting Ryan Murphy’s new Scream Queens series with plenty of promos and photos, but in the interest of keeping blood pumping until fall, the full trailer has finally arrived. See star-studded Scream Queens from the likes of Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Emma Roberts and more, and find out who takes a lawnmower to the face!
Through most of Schwarzenegger’s film career, whatever his character’s stated profession — retired army commando, undercover FBI agent, super spy — his unspoken profession was unstoppable murderer. It was his job, and he took pride in it. Pleasure, too; killing was so effortless and uncomplicated for ’80s-era Schwarzenegger that he’d crack jokes while he did it.

As one of the biggest Arnold Schwarzenegger nerds on the planet, I might be biased about this (okay I am definitely biased about this) but I think Maggie looks like one of the most interesting movies of the year. It’s a horror drama about a father trying to protect his daughter after she’s infected with some kind of zombie virus. The daughter is Abigail Breslin; the father is Schwarzenegger. Admittedly I don’t see (or hear) much of a family resemblance, but the themes this story touches on — parental responsibilities, broken families, an aging hero fighting against an increasing sense of irrelevance — jive perfectly with the stuff Schwarzenegger continues to explore throughout the latter half of his career.
We still don’t have the clearest picture of Ryan Murphy’s new horror-comedy anthology ‘Scream Queens’ for FOX, but its cast will certainly draw some attention. Following initial selections of Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts, ‘Scream Queens’ is adding to its horror-grinder ‘Glee’'s Lea Michele, ‘True Blood’'s Joe Manganiello, pop star Ariana Grande, and more.
As we gear up for the Toronto International Film Festival, once again, more titles have been announced to make debuts at the big event up north, including Arnold Schwarzenegger's zombie movie, 'Maggie.' In addition to the announcement, the first official photos from the film have hit the web, showing the softer side of the zombie apocalypse.
There's a terrific hook at the center of the upcoming horror flick 'Haunter.' What would a ghost story look like if you told everything from the point of view of the ghost? Director Vincenzo Natali (of 'Cube' and 'Splice' fame) attempts to answer that query with his latest film, which sees Abigail Breslin attempting to solve the mystery of exactly what happened to her and her family, whose lives s
Look at that headline. We know it sounds like a joke from The Onion, but we promise every word is true. 'Maggie' - starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and now Abigail Breslin - is a real movie that people are actually making. With money and such.
