Halloween is a great time for horror fans and there already seems to be an abundance of horror movies coming to theaters. But instead of the usual slasher, vampire, or zombie movies, this year's offerings seem to concentrate on supernatural thrillers like Dream House, Paranormal Activity 3 and, at least in the U.K., The Awakening. The movie just debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), with the first trailer revealing that the movie has all the elements to be an actually scary ghost story.
Set in in post-World War I England, The Awakening follows a skeptical woman (The Town's Rebecca Hall) who is invited by a countryside boarding school headmaster (The Wire's Dominic West) to travel to the institution and investigate, and possibly debunk, a potential haunting. Once there, Hall discovers that the school could actually be subject to an actual haunting. watch the trailer >> Posted 09.17.11 by Ryan
For those unfamiliar with British-Roman history, the story behind Centurion may feel unfamiliar, which is why Magnolia Pictures is working so hard to get the word out about the movie. Directed by Neil Marshall, Centurion is not a sequel to Gladiator, but rather tells of the legendary Roman Ninth Legion, who, while trying to rid Northern Britain of the "savage," guerrilla tribes known as the Picts, disappeared. Quintus Dias (Michael Fassbender plays the Roman Centurion of the title, and leads a small band of Roman survivors as they attempt a rescue for their captured general (Dominic West), while being hunted by the Picts.
The latest clip shows Fassbender on the run from Olga Kurylenko, who forces the group to quickly overcome their fear of heights. Watch the clip and the preview Posted 08.04.10 by Ryan

Director Neil Marshall (Doomsday) wrapped principal photography on his latest movie, Centurion, back in March 2009, and now the first trailer has finally been released. Described by Marshall as a "Scottish-Roman Western," Centurion speculates on the fate of the legendary 2nd-Century Ninth Legion, a fighting force of 3000 Roman warriors that supposedly disappeared without a trace after questing to eliminate the savage Picts from Britain.
After the Ninth are set upon by the Picts in a brutal ambush, only seven Legionnaires survive. Far from Roman territory and hopelessly outnumbered, the remains of the Ninth struggle to survive against an enemy they don't fully understand. Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, and Olga Kurylenko star.
A North American release date for Centurion has not been announced yet, but it is expected to open in March or April. Posted 02.19.10 by BrentJS
More Hollywood talent has been added to Disney's live-action John Carter of Mars movie, joining X-Men Origins: Wolverine's Taylor Kitsch in the title role. Previous cast announcements have included Academy Award-nominated actor Willem Dafoe as Carter's Martian (Barsoomian) ally Tars Tarkas, and Lynn Collins as Carter's love interest and martian princess Dejoh Thoris. Now it's been reported that Samantha Morton, Dominic West, and Polly Walker will "go Martian" in the movie.
John Carter of Mars is based on the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs character who appeared in the 11-volume Barsoom series of books. The movie is planned as the first installment of a Mars trilogy and is based on the first novel, A Princess of Mars, which was first published in 1912. In the novel, Captain John Carter, a Confederate Civil War veteran, is mysteriously transported to Mars (Barsoom), where he finds that the lesser gravity gives him super-human strength and agility. Carter becomes embroiled in the conflict between the Red and Green Martians and falls in love with Dejah Thoris, a Red Martian.
Principal photography is expected to begin this November in Utah and continue through July 2010. Posted 09.01.09 by BrentJS
