The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Trailer: Guess Who's Back, Back Again...

I hope you've been keeping up your cardio, because Leatherface is back and so is his chainsaw. Netflix has dropped the first teaser trailer for its upcoming "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" movie.Though any effort to revive a classic horror franchise is generally met with a measure of skepticism, there are a couple of reasons to give "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" a chance. First, the movie was produced and co-written by Fede Álvarez, the filmmaker behind the excellent 2013 remake of "The Evil Dead." Se...

Abel Ferrera And Ethan Hawke On Going To War For Art In Zeros And Ones [Interview]

Abel Ferrera's "Zeros and Ones," a thriller filmed in the heart of the pandemic, is in many ways a novel beast of a film. Dark, gritty, often told in close-ups, the film sees soldier J.J. (Ethan Hawke) digging into the dark underbelly of Rome to find his revolutionary brother, Justin (also Hawke), an idealistic radical who may hold the key to stopping the deadly attack. It's a tense film with a singular vision from director Ferrera, and one that took full advantage of the eerie emptied streets o...

47 Ronin Sequel Starring Mark Dacascos And Anna Akana Has Started Filming

In 2013, Variety listed "47 Ronin" as one of Hollywood's biggest box office bombs of the year. The film was the last Keanu Reeves vehicle to hit before "John Wick," which birthed a new action franchise and helped bring about a career resurgence for the actor. You might not think of "47 Ronin" as a franchise in the way of "John Wick" or "The Matrix," both of which have four-quels starring Reeves in the pipeline. However, "47 Ronin" does have a sequel on the way, headlined by one of Reeves' co-sta...

Tales From The Box Office: Resident Evil Beat The Video Game Movie Curse

Video games have been wildly popular for decades now, but it was in the '90s when Hollywood first became interested in the notion of turning these interactive experiences into movies. These began in earnest with the likes of the legendarily bad "Super Mario Bros." in 1993 and the A-for-effort "Mortal Kombat" in 1995. To this day, video game movies remain a truly difficult nut to crack, with only a few managing to rise above and become truly successful. Fewer still end up finding critical love be...
