(But Would You Really Want to Win One?)
Without some sort of written record, we'll never know what the first modern humans thought about death, but it's likely that at least some of them believed their loves ones continued on in some way, shape, or form, just as many of us do today. In the early part of the last century, seance parties were all the rage, with the best mediums commanding top dollar and achieving a certain level of fame. Today, movies about ghosts are raking in the bucks and yesterday's mediums have been replaced by today's reality TV "ghost hunters," who use all manner of high-tech gizmos — many of them created specifically for the task — in their quest for proof of the afterlife. And, thanks to the internet, you don't even have to travel to a haunted house to have a paranormal encounter anymore — you can buy your own evil spirit online! say what now? >> Posted 01.18.13 by BrentJS
Which Actor Should Play the Space Pirate?
Unless you've been sentenced to hard labor in the Spice Mines of Kessel or frozen in carbonite for the past few weeks, then you know that George Lucas has sold Lucasfilm Ltd. and that Disney is pushing for a new Star Wars movie to be released in 2015. The details of Star Wars: Episode VII are a closely guarded secret at this point, but we do know that Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine) has been hired to write the screenplay and that Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher have all been approached about it, but whether the trio will be playing older versions of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa or simply signing away their likeness rights for digital proxies is anyone's guess.
As much as we would love to see the original actors come back in some way, shape or form, we would much rather see Disney reboot the characters the way Paramount did with Star Trek. After all, if James Bond, Batman and Sherlock Holmes can survive multiple interations, why not Han, Luke and Leia? We already asked you who you think has the right stuff to play the last Jedi; now, help us choose the space pirate, the scoundrel, the scruffy looking nerf herder.

Considering all of the changes that director Ole Bornedal's (Deliver Us from Evil) new horror movie, The Possession, has gone through, one might easily conclude that the movie itself is possessed and not simply the little girl named Em (Natasha Calis) at the heart of the story. The Sam Raimi-produced movie has had its title changed — it used to be called Dibbbuk Box — its rating downgraded from R to PG-13, and even had its release date pushed back nearly eight months to avoid competing with Paramount's possession movie, The Devil Inside. Presumably, there are no more changes on the horizon — for the movie, not the little girl — because Lionsgate has finally released the first disturbing trailer for The Possession. watch the trailer (if you dare) >> Posted 05.17.12 by BrentJS
In November, actor Chris Evans (Captain America: The First Avenger) added a non-Marvel movie to his upcoming slate with The Iceman, replacing James Franco as Robert Pronge, the mentor of convicted mob contract killer Richard Kuklinski, a.k.a. the Iceman. Now, Evans has also added another non-comic book character role in The Snow Piercer.
Variety reports that Evans is in negotiations to star in the indie drama which is set on an ice and snow-covered world where a train full of travelers struggle to co-exist. Bong Joon-ho, who directed the 2006 Korean monster movie The Host, will make his English-language directorial debut with The Snow Piercer, which was written by Park Chan-wook, the director of the 2004 Korean adaptation of Oldboy. American remakes of both Oldboy and The Host are reportedly in the works, though Oldboy is further along with Spike Lee (Miracle at St. Anna, Inside Man) set to direct and Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men) set to star. morgan in a Rut, Winslet travels to Guernsey >> Posted 01.16.12 by Ryan
A couple weeks ago, the first trailer was released for the upcoming crime thriller The Texas Killing Fields (formerly The Fields), followed by a new poster and release date. While the movie is still more than a month away, four new preview clips have debuted.
Inspired by true events, Texas Killing Fields stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Sam Worthington as two detectives who team up to catch a serial killer who brutally murders women and dumps their bodies in a nearby marsh locals call "The Killing Fields." Soon, the killer begins targeting police officers. Director Ami Canaan Mann makes her feature directorial debut with the movie after spending ten years as a TV and movie writer. Mann recently explained to IndieWire that what drew her to the project was "the quality of the dialogue" and "the research" done by screenwriter Donald F. Ferrarone, himself a former DEA agent. Mann used both to create a reportedly authentic movie. watch the clips and read Mann's comments >> Posted 09.03.11 by Ryan
The first trailer for the crime thriller The Texas Killing Fields (formerly The Fields) has debuted online in anticipation of its October release.
Based on true events of some brutal murders of women in Texas, Texas Killing Fields stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Sam Worthington as two detectives who team up to solve the mysterious murders before the killer can claim his next victim. Director Danny Boyle was originally set to direct the movie, but left revealing that the script, by former DEA agent Donald F. Ferrarone was "so dark it would never get made". Director Ami Canaan Mann (daughter of Heat director Michael Mann, who produced) took over the movie. watch the trailer >> Posted 08.22.11 by Ryan
While 2009's Drag Me to Hell was the first horror movie that Sam Raimi had directed in many years, the former Spider-Man director had continued to produce them, including 2004's The Grudge and its 2006 sequel and 2007's 30 Days of Night, to name a few. Raimi's latest horror effort is Dibbuk Box, which follows a divorced couple whose child becomes obsessed with a wooden box haunted by a spirit that wants to devour its human host.
Deadline reports that Kyra Sedgwick has been cast opposite Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the formerly married couple. Ole Bornedal (Deliver Us From Evil) will direct the movie from a script by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White (Knowing).
Lionsgate has scheduled Dibbuk Box for an October 28 release date, the spot usually held for its Saw movies. Shooting will likely begin when Sedgwick finishes work on the final season of TNT's The Closer. Posted 01.19.11 by Ryan

Is Hilary Swank the female Cuba Gooding Jr.? The two-time Oscar-winning actress's Amelia bombed at the box office, as did her most recent pic Conviction. Now The Resident, a thriller starring Swank and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, is headed straight to video in March.
Reports are that Camille Grammer is not returning for a second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Is it because Kelsey made her do it? Or because her porn star past has been revealed? In the '90s Camille Donatacci bared it all in Marilyn Chambers' Bedtime Stories and The Naked Detective, but her career never took off as porn consumers described her as "having an average body and looks and too-large boobs."
If reality TV doesn't work out for Jersey Shore's Deena Nicole Cortese, porn — or at least the pole — might be a career path as she stripped off her her bikini bottoms for The Situation on last night's premiere of the hit show, then later claimed "I had no idea my bottom came off." In the same interview she said, "I make out with anything when I'm drunk."
We're not sure the Deena Cortese stripping incident is related, but Dr. Drew Pinsky is preparing to leave MTV and focus solely on his new talk show, premiering on CNN's Headline News channel in March. He told The New York Post he'd like to have Linday Lohan as a guest, saying, "I want to talk about what's really going on with a woman who's suffering like that."

Hollywood has made a living out of portraying women to be such canker sores. We always have to be rescued all the time because we're so incompetent. I grew up in Queens in the '80s where women were the caretakers and women were the soldiers. I like holding the gun. I like participating in the saving of the day. I think it's kind of sexy. It's kind of like my mom.
As promotion ramps up for the movie, get to know each of The Losers in this video chat with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, and Idris Elba. As you'll see, it certainly sounds like they had fun on the set! Watch the interview >> Posted 04.20.10 by reelz
