James Franco Makes an Appearance in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 16:23

Don't get too excited, kids. James Franco does indeed appear in the upcoming sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, entitled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but the part is so minor Franco claims he didn't know!

As reported by The Wrap... “Wait, I have a cameo?” Franco is quoted as saying in Entertainment Weekly‘s summer movie preview issue. “I didn't know that. You know, I don't even think they asked my permission for that.

In the original Franco played a scientist named Will Rodman, who not only created the super monkey serum that allowed Caesar (Andy Serkis) to become smart enough to lead an army of apes but inadvertently unleashed a virus that wiped out most of humanity, himself included. He'll apparently be appearing via video, maybe apologizing to human survivors — including Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, and Jason Clarke — for ruining their lives.

Look for the film in theatres on July 11th, 2014. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smith-Mcphee, Enrique Muriciano, and Kirk Acevedo.

Synopsis
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 15:25

Last year we told you about an upcoming film called Peste, which was to be directed by Mark Ponderai (House at the End of the Street). Not only has the flick undergone a name change, but so too has the director been swapped out. Read on for the latest!

We've just learned via Bloody Disgusting that Peste has been re-named Viral and will now be directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, the team behind both Catfish and Paranormal Activity 3. Hit machine Blumhouse Productions will produce.

Last we heard, Abigail Breslin was attached to star, but we've gotten no word yet as to whether or not she's still on board. Hopefully we'll know more real soon.

Synopsis:
A teenage girl begins a video documentary about her life for a school project just as a terrifying virus sweeps through her small town. Quarantined with her family, she thinks they are out of harm’s way, but she soon learns that the virus has invaded their house. Her video documents the family’s frantic struggle to find a cure before they are completely taken over by the outbreak.

The script was written as the first part of a planned trilogy.

Set Photos Reveal Recreation of the Infamous Amityville House

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 15:21

Shooting is currently under way on Amityville, the Blumhouse-produced next installment in the franchise that continues to endure all these decades later. Today we've got our first look at the film in the form of some familiar looking behind-the-scenes photos. Read on!

Twitter user @aeromat recently tweeted out some images from the set, which give us a glimpse at the in-progress build of the infamous house that ties the whole series together.

The recreation is currently being constructed in Long Beach, California - a long way from Long Island, New York, where the real house still sits.

Check out the photos below, and look for more soon!

Jennifer Jason Leigh stars as lead character Joan, a single mother who moves her three kids into the Amityville house, which of course has a very dark history. Bella Thorne, Cameron Monaghan, Taylor Spreitler, and McKenna Grace are also on board.

Maniac remake director Franck Khalfoun will direct.

Dimension had planned on reigniting the popular horror franchise using a found-footage angle, but that idea has been dropped. Amityville remains scheduled for release on January 2, 2015.

Daniel Farrands and Casey La Scala co-wrote the script and are expected to produce with Jason Blum of hit factory Blumhouse.

The Beast Within Comes Special Delivery

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 12:30

The excellent found footage horror flick Delivery: The Beast Within (review) (or Delivery, as it was known in the UK) is finally headed to home video Stateside, and we have full details and lots of eye candy for you! Check it out!

From the Press Release
Los Angeles-based entertainment management and production company The Collective has acquired the U.S. rights to paranormal thriller DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN (aka DELIVERY) and will be releasing the feature in theaters and on VOD this May.

A limited theatrical run in NYC, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, and Indianapolis is set for May 30th with the movie hitting cable VOD on all major platforms three days prior on May 27th.

Directed by Brian Netto and produced by Adam Schindler (who also co-wrote the screenplay with Netto), DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN stars Laurel Vail, Danny Barclay, and Rob Cobuzio in the paranormal thriller that has been generating buzz since it premiered last summer at the L.A. Film Festival.

DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN tells the story of Kyle and Rachel Massy, a young couple who agree to document their first pregnancy for a family-oriented reality show. As the camera continues to capture strange events, Rachel begins to believe that a malevolent spirit has possessed their unborn child. Told through the show's un-aired footage and interviews with friends, family, and production members, this savvy debut feature leverages the voyeuristic properties of reality television to present a fresh perspective on classic horror themes of possession and the paranormal -- and delivers enough eeriness to keep you on the edge of your seat.

U.S. audiences will finally get a chance to see the movie that AintItCool called “...a horror movie you’re going to want to seek out” and Indiewire declared “a creepy-fun-scary flick that will leave you needing a hug” when it opens next month.

Captain America Shatters the Oculus

Sun, 04/13/2014 - 16:15

Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all? Actually, it was Captain America, followed closely by talking animated birds. The new haunted mirror movie Oculus still managed to score a fair share in its third place opening weekend.

Opinions have been contentious regarding Mike Flanagan’s Oculus, but audiences showed up this weekend for the first wide release horror film in about three months.

The Blumhouse Productions/WWE Studios co-production got off to a modest start with a $12 million opening. According to Box Office Mojo, that’s about on par with the last haunted mirror flick to hit theaters, Mirrors, which opened to a tad more than $11 million.

Divergent’s fifth place weekend granted another $3.4 million, bringing it to over $125 million domestically. The formula should now be obvious to Hollywood producers looking to adapt female-centric genre novels to films: dystopian future romances, yay; supernatural romance, nay. Twilight time has passed and we are now basking in the dawn of Hunger Games-inspired tweenertainment.

The next big screen installment in the Divergent franchise is already set to roll and it was announced this past week that the final book in the series will be, for absolutely no justifiable reason other than to maximize profits, divided into two films. In retrospect, it’s rather amazing that Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy didn’t end up as six films.

Next week, A Haunted House 2 tries to justify its existence while Johnny Depp threatens our existence by turning into the Lawnmower Man in Transcendence and Disneynature’s Bears celebrates Earth Day by showcasing the “giant, marauding, godless killing machines” that haunt Stephen Colbert’s nightmares.
