You’re Next

A surprise hit at festivals in 2011, including Best Horror Picture, Best Director (Adam Wingard), Best Screenplay (Simon Barrett) & Best Actress (Sharni Vinson) at Austin, Texas’ 2011 Fantastic Fest, Lionsgate is finally set to release You’re Next later this year.

Buzz seems to be it’ll be worth the wait as Cinemablend.com says:

One of the smartest and most terrifying films in years, You’re Next reinvents the genre by putting a fresh twist on home-invasion horror. When a gang of masked, ax-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped…until an unlikely guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all.

You're Next Intruders

Those that have already seen screenings in Toronto or Austin (screened again there this year at SXSW) say it’s a great new take on the horror genre that will have you jumping in your seat and then nervously laughing , because you didn’t think movies could scare you like that anymore.

Heat Vision is also calling it the “stand up and cheer horror movie of the year.”

You’re Next opens August 23, 2013

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

New official teaser trailer released yesterday.

The Conjuring

The Conjuring is a new horror movie, out in July 2013, based on The Warren Files, the files of  paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren.  The movie tells the true story of the Perron family, who lived in a secluded farmhouse outside of Harrisville, Rhode Island in the 1970’s and the spirits that occupied the house.

The Warrens were called in at the time to investigate strange occurrences and soon found the investigation to be one of the most terrifying of their lives.  The Perron’s oldest daughter, Andrea, has also written a book series about her family’s time in the house, House of Darkness House of Light:  The True Story.

The movie is directed by James Wan and stars, Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Ron Livingston & Lili Taylor.

Pacific Rim

Cloud Atlas

Based on David Mitchell’s 2004 novel and adapted for the screen and directed by Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) and Andy Wachowski & Lana Wachowski (The Matrix trilogy), this movie seems epic.  Interweaving six storylines that cover the 1800’s to the post-apocalyptic future, the characters are connected by learning about, reading or watching the story of the character from the previous time period.

The official synopsis for the film is:

An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.

Bringing this book to the screen was, I’m sure, no small feat.  Lana Wachowski told Aleksandar Hemon of The New Yorker about how they went about adapting this book to the screen by meeting up in Costa Rica to work on it.  She describes how they broke down the book into hundreds of scenes and wrote them on colored note cards, spreading them out and trying to figure out how to bring the book to life.  She also mentions how, on the day that they left Costa Rica, there was a breakthrough and the realization of how to thread the stories together, partly by using the same actors to portray the various characters in the different stories.  Many of the main actors in the film play multiples characters from different stories, regions and times.

“EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED”

Cloud Atlas opens in the US on October 26, 2012 and internationally in early 2013.

Leaking Prometheus

20th Century Fox has been leaking viral videos that give fans a glimpse into what is to come on June 8th, 2012…when Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is released.

This first video gives a look into Guy Pearce’s character in Prometheus, Peter Weyland.  As any fan of the Alien franchise knows, Weyland Industries is the (evil)  corporation that eventually merged with the Yutani organization, to create Weyland-Yutani…with slogans like “building a better future” and “building better worlds”.

The video is designed to look like a lecture from the popular lecture website TED.COM, (technology, entertainment, design), “Ideas Worth Spreading”, which is a website formed by the non-profit Sapling foundation.  TED’s mission statement is:

We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we’re building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.

 

 

Also, attendees at this year’s WonderCon were given cards to access this glimpse into Michael Fassbender’s character in the movie.  He plays an android named David.

 

 

More clues to Prometheus can be found at Prometheus Project, where there are still three locked pieces of information yet to be released.
