Mib: International First Look Has the Men In Black Ready for Action

Mib: International First Look Has the Men In Black Ready for Action
No Raybans, no ties, no problem. Earlier this week we passed along the news that director F. Gary Gray's upcoming reboot of Men in Black starring Thor: Ragnarok dynamic duo Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson had snagged an official title, and will henceforth be referred to as Mib International. The title is fitting and really just comes right out and tells us all we need to know about the upcoming revamps, now doesn't it? Yep, glad we can all agree that it's a sound title.

Good job, Hollywood. The film is obviously a spin-off of the massively successful original trilogy of films that starred Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and even Josh Brolin on occasion. But a bit less well-known is the fact that this film is also a reboot of the original Malibu/Marvel comics series of the same name by Lowell Cunningham.

10 Chilling Horror Movies to Make You Shiver This Winter

10 Chilling Horror Movies to Make You Shiver This Winter
As the climate transitions from chilly to downright bone-chilling, all of us will likely be spending more time indoors. But my modo is: When the weather outside is frightful, curling up on the couch with a good horror movie can be delightful! While fear may likely trigger an elevated heartrate, resulting in increased body temperature, some creepers are terrifying enough to make you shiver, no matter how loud your fireplace (or space heater) is roaring.

And then there are horror movies that exasperate the external chill by using cold as a trope, a plot motivator, or even a character itself. Kids love building snowmen, but an unforgiving Arctic blast can be just as scary as any haunted house or masked psychopath. Hey, at least no one at Camp Crystal Lake has to worry about freezing to death.

The 10 horror movies below are chilling, but they're also cold in the literal sense,

The 30th Anniversary of the Ultimate Christmas Film: Die Hard

Tom Jolliffe celebrates Die Hard on its 30th anniversary…

When a film hits a significant anniversary, say 30 years old, there are two things that happen. In one, for those who were but wee blighters when they first saw the film, it will make you feel old. I first saw Die Hard on video, a couple of years after its release. About 28 years ago, when I was…oh lord…really? Man, I’m feeling old. Secondly though, when a film remains as revered as Die Hard, some 30 years on, you fully appreciate just how well crafted and impeccable the film is. It’s possibly The definitive American action film. For the record too, it’s a Christmas film. The working class, every man hero battles the consumerist terrorists to reunite with his family for a season of goodwill and festivities. It’s also set at Christmas time. There’s tinsel, trees

Oscars 2019: Best Visual Effects Predictions

Oscars 2019: Best Visual Effects Predictions
While 2018 has been a stunning year for character animation and world building, powered by “Ready Player One,” “Black Panther,” and “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” the Oscar race for Best Visual Effects shapes up as a showdown between “First Man” and “Avengers: Infinity War” — reshaping in-camera VFX for Nasa’s trip to the moon versus Marvel’s brilliant CG Thanos.

On “Avengers: Infinity War,” Digital Domain created Thanos in parallel with Weta Digital. The success of both Thanos characters was a result of conveying every nuance of Brolin’s onset performance via Dd’s new high-res facial capture system, which captured Brolin’s facial data and then added the actor’s low-res onset performance. Through analysis and fine-tuning, the animators accurately joined Brolin with Thanos, which could yield Marvel its first VFX Oscar. The level of photo-real performance capture definitely raises the bar for a humanoid.

‘Nightflyers’ Review: A Space Odd-yssey Where Great Ideas Meet Lackluster Execution

Earlier this year, at New York Comic-Con, Nightflyers creator Jeff Buhler ticked off a list of genre icons that influenced Syfy's haunted spaceship horrorshow. “We leaned heavily on the shoulders of the greats,” Buhler said. “We were not shy about pulling the themes and even some imagery. There’s a lot of 2001, The Shining, and Ridley Scott’s Alien.” I've seen five episodes of Nightflyers and I can confirm the series—based on the 1980 novella by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin—borrows mightily from all those things, plus a healthy dose of …

Concert Review: L.A. Phil Tackles Kubrick’s Sublime Musical Terrors at Disney Hall
Plenty of people have heard 20th century concert music solely because Stanley Kubrick smuggled it into his movies. The L.A. Philharmonic returned the favor over the weekend, by smuggling the director’s films into the concert hall.

“Stanley Kubrick’s Sound Odyssey” took the Phil, along with the Los Angeles Master Chorale, on a musical voyage through five chapters in the filmmaker’s diverse canon: “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “The Shining,” “Barry Lyndon,” “Eyes Wide Shut” and “A Clockwork Orange.” Selected excerpts of classical works he used in those films’ soundtracks accompanied their attendant scenes on a large screen above the Disney Hall stage.

Malcolm McDowell, who played the amoral lad Alex in “Clockwork,” hosted the evening. He seemed a little stiff when reading the boilerplate script, but far more at ease when he segued into telling ad lib anecdotes. Noting how “2001” struggled to find an audience until someone

Q&A: Director/Co-Writer Chris Mul on Researching Astral Projection and Shadow People for New Horror Movie Astral

  • DailyDead
What if there is another dimension where the past, present, and future collide, and what if there was something watching us from that other side? The thin line between our world and a spatial dimension is explored in Astral, and with the new horror movie coming to select theaters and VOD and digital platforms beginning November 23rd from Vertical Entertainment, we caught up with co-writer/director Chris Mul in our latest Q&A to discuss shooting his film in two weeks, working with a talented cast of young stars (including Frank Dillane from Fear The Walking Dead), and his research (and unnerving real-life experiences) of astral projection and shadow people.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, and congratulations on your first feature-length film, Astral. How and when did you and Michael Mul come up with the idea for this movie?

Villordsutch reviews Doctor Who Series 11 Episode 7 – Kerblam!

Written by – Pete McTighe

Directed by – Jennifer Perrott

Twirly – “Hello again. Customers with your current medical symptoms browse blood pressure medication.”

Have you ever wondered what the world would look like if Jeff Bezos put all of his earnings on a winning horse one day? If those giant warehouses of Amazon, Hermes and Buy’N’Large finally exceed the land they’re built upon and had to expand on a planetary scale, what would they look like? And more interestingly what would their workforce consist of? Well in this week’s episode of Doctor Who we get to find out.

After the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) takes a late delivery of a Fez, though in fairness to Kerblam Man Delivery-Droid they were lucky it never arrived at the Fourth Doctor’s Tardis door (or did it?), it’s discovered – within the delivery box – someone

The Intruder Trailer Sends an Insane Dennis Quaid Flying Off the Rails

Sony and their Screen Gems banner have made a hot meal out of tawdry, sexual fueled revenge thrillers. For years, they have been delivering the goods in this department, and in 2019, they won't disappoint. The first trailer for The Intruder, which stars a very bonkers Dennis Quaid has arrived, and it looks like a teeth-clincher,

When a young married couple (Michael Ealy and Meagan Good) buys their dream house in the Napa Valley, they think they have found the perfect home to take their next steps as a family. But when the strangely attached seller (Dennis Quaid) continues to infiltrate their lives, they begin to suspect that he has hidden motivations beyond a quick sale.

Dennis Quaid gets to show off his madman persona that we so seldom see. He's taking a page out of the Nicolas Cage play book, and turning things up to 11. We haven't seen him this

Leeds International Film Festival 2018 Review – Night of the Dead Horror Marathon

The Leeds International Film Festival plays annual host to an overnight horror marathon, Night of the Dead, in which 300-ish gorehounds gather inside Leeds’ historic Hyde Park Picture House to hunker down with the latest and “greatest” in cult horror gems.

2018 marked the 18th Night of the Dead all-nighter, and it’s my 9th time attending, having become something of a yearly tradition for myself and my Uni pal/fellow sufferer Alex. The ritual is as follows; we take a bleary-eyed coach from London to Leeds, sink some beers throughout the day and then rock up to the Picture House for 10 hours of sleep-deprived insanity.

It’s a festival sidebar that naturally attracts the most dedicated genre buffs and, to that end, caters with a game mix of card-carrying schlock and higher-minded, critically acclaimed fare. This year’s slate of movies proved one of the more consistent in recent years,
