‘Run’ Filmmakers on Their Cinematic Influences, the Film’s ‘Mission: Impossible’ Moment, and More

Mission: Impossible is Searching director Aneesh Chaganty‘s favorite film franchise, so it’s not a surprise that he uses imagery from that movie to describe the centerpiece action sequence in his newest thriller, Run. In a recent interview, Chaganty told me that one of his movie’s biggest camera moves “was intentionally supposed to evoke the pullout of Tom Cruise on the Burj Khalifa.” But Mission: Impossible wasn’t on the primary list of cinematic inspirations for this nail-biter of a story abo...

10 Best Mary Elizabeth Winstead Roles

10 Best Mary Elizabeth Winstead Roles Emerging as a rising star back in the mid-2000s, Mary Elizabeth Winstead quickly shot to stardom by the time the 2010s rolled around. Starring in a Disney movie, a horror movie, and a Quentin Tarantino all in a row seems to have done the trick — Winstead is now one of the most underrated voices in Hollywood right now.

Allison Janney Joins Bad Robot Thriller ‘Lou’, Which We’ll Assume is a ‘Cloverfield’ Sequel For Now

There was a time when every new Bad Robot movie was presumed to be a new secret Cloverfield sequel. That trend has apparently died out, but maybe we can get it going again with Bad Robot’s latest, a thriller called Lou. Allison Janney has joined the cast of the thriller, which involves a young woman and her landlord trying to rescue a kidnapped child. I’m not sure how this could be a Cloverfield movie, so it probably isn’t. But maybe it is! And maybe it’s really called Clouverfield! (It’s not)....

‘Eastern Promises 2’ Screenplay Now Being Used For Standalone Crime Film ‘Body Cross’

For years there have been whispers about a potential Eastern Promises 2, a sequel to David Cronenberg‘s 2007 gangster movie that starred Viggo Mortensen and Vincent Cassel. For a time, it even looked like the same creative team would reunite for it. But now we know that’s not happening, because Eastern Promises 2 has morphed into something else entirely.

Watch: Superb 'Cloverfield'-Inspired Sci-Fi Action Short Film 'Megan'

"The old man wasn't that crazy after all, was he?" Time to dip our toes back into the Cloverfield universe. Megan is an impressive "proof-of-concept" 5-min sci-fi short film by a Polish VFX designer / filmmaker named Greg Strasz. It's directly inspired by Cloverfield and 10 Cloverfield Lane and the ARG for these and everything else (though not The Cloverfield Paradox, thankfully, since that film sucks). This also reminds me a bit of Battle Los Angeles, but I better not say that. Megan stars ...

‘A Quiet Place’ Writers on Building Tension, How This Could Have Been A ‘Cloverfield’ Film, and More [Interview]

Harrowing, suspenseful, and emotional, Paramount’s A Quiet Place is a terrific piece of horror storytelling that pulls you in from its opening frames and doesn’t loosen its grip for the entire runtime. You probably know the premise by now: a family tries to stay alive in a world overrun by creatures who hunt using sound, which means one stray noise or careless mistake could spell the family’s untimely demise. John Krasinski stars opposite his real-life wife Emily Blunt, and he also co-wrote the...

‘The Last of Us’ Screenwriter Doesn’t Want His Movie To Be Made

If you talk to any screenwriter, they’ll tell you they have tons of scripts sitting in a drawer somewhere gathering dust. Writing a movie can be the easy part – actually getting it made is often far more challenging. So it’s relatively rare to hear of someone writing a screenplay and actively not wanting that script to ever see the light of day, but that’s exactly what’s happening with Neil Druckmann and his The Last of Us movie.
