New ‘Spiral: From the Book of Saw’ Photo and Details Tease the Reboot, Which Was Inspired by ‘Seven’

Chris Rock is best known for being one of the best comedians in the business, but he’ll soon expand his career in a surprising way by starring in the serial killer thriller Spiral: From the Book of Saw, a quasi-reboot of the popular Saw franchise. Originally intended for release in May of 2020, Spiral: From the Book of Saw is now slated to arrive in May this year due to the coronavirus pandemic delaying a bunch of big Hollywood movies. As we wait to see if the movie’s 2021 release date will rem...

‘John Wick 4’ Filming Will Probably Start This Year, According to Ian McShane

If all goes according to plan, Keanu Reeves could be slipping back into his John Wick suit and murdering nameless henchmen very, very soon. As was previously announced, John Wick 4 and John Wick 5 already have a green light, and the plan was originally to shoot them back to back. But the coronavirus pandemic has made many such plans obsolete, leaving the shooting schedule of John Wick 4 and 5 up in the air. But according to co-star Ian McShane, filming on John Wick 4 is probably going to start ...

‘Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar’ Trailer: Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo Are Vacationing Buddies

Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo are saving face — literally — in the Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar trailer, which follows the pair of gal pals as they discuss making a movie trailer without showing their faces. It’s a silly fourth wall-breaking tease for the comedy that reunites the former Bridesmaids co-stars in a comedy directed by Josh Greenbaum (Single Parents). Watch the Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar trailer below. Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar Trailer We see a lot of trailer...

‘Ikiru’ Remake ‘Living’ Will Star Bill Nighy

While remakes can sometimes be surprisingly great, it’s probably never a great idea to remake an Akira Kurosawa movie. But that’s not going to stop Living, an English-language remake of Kurosawa’s acclaimed 1952 film Ikiru. Lionsgate just picked up UK distribution rights to the film, which comes from director Oliver Hermanus and will star Bill Nighy. Kurosawa’s original followed a civil servant who learns he has cancer and then struggles to leave behind a positive legacy before he dies. T...

‘Chaos Walking’ Delayed Again, Surprising No One

At this point, Chaos Walking is turning into one of those Hollywood urban myths, the kind of movie that we’ll never see, and may not actually exist. But we’ll have to wait until March 2021 to see if we’ll be disproven, because, yes, Chaos Walking has been delayed again. Variety reports that Lionsgate has postponed the Chaos Walking release date once again, to March 5, 2021. That’s about a year after it was initially scheduled to be released all the way back on March 1, 2019, before it was pu...

‘Fatale’ Trailer: Hilary Swank Has a Fatal Attraction to Michael Ealy

Lionsgate has unveiled an official trailer for the steamy psychological thriller Fatale, a movie which is somehow opening in theaters in two weeks. In the wake of a game-changer like Warner Bros.’ announcement yesterday, many things still remain the same…like B-movie erotic thrillers getting buried during the winter season. But this time, instead of being buried in direct-to-video, the Hilary Swank-starring Fatale is being buried in theaters. Watch the Fatale trailer below. Fatale Trailer ...

‘Chaos Walking’ Trailer: Daisy Ridley is the First Woman Tom Holland Has Ever Seen

Back in the spring of 2019, it was said that Doug Liman‘s new sci-fi film Chaos Walking was “unreleasable,” and Lionsgate was going to spend millions of dollars on reshoots in an attempt to fix it. Well, we can finally get a taste of those results as the first Chaos Walking trailer has arrived, revealing that Tom Holland lives on a planet where all women have disappeared and the inner-monologues of men are unwillingly audible for anyone to hear. That’s made all the more complicated when Daisy R...

Lionsgate Picks Up ‘Video Nasty’, Which Sounds Like ‘Last Action Hero’ for 1980s Slasher Fans

In Last Action Hero, a kid gets sucked into the world of his favorite action movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. But what if you ended up trapped in a horror movie instead? That’s exactly what Lionsgate will ask with their acquisition of the original horror script Video Nasty. Video Nasty will focus on three teens who rent a cursed VHS tape and they end up stuck in a 1980s slasher movie that threatens to trap them forever. That sounds awesome. Variety has news on the Video Nasty movie that ...

A Dutch actor and an Australian actor play two American brothers fighting for the “American Dream” in a gritty crime thriller directed by Steven Spielberg‘s longtime cinematographer Janusz Kaminski.

‘White Bird: A Wonder Story’ Will Be a “Creative Companion” to ‘Wonder’

Wonder, the Stephen Chbosky-directed 2017 movie based on the novel of the same name by R. J. Palacio, is getting a sequel. Well, okay, it’s not really a sequel. Instead, Lionsgate has dubbed the new film – called White Bird: A Wonder Story – a “creative companion” to the film. It’s once again based on something written by R. J. Palacio, but tells a completely new story. I remember seeing trailers for Wonder, the 2017 film starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, and Jacob Tremblay, but I didn’t ...

Last year, Lionsgate scrapped its plans to build an indoor theme park called Lionsgate Entertainment City in New York City.

Even if it’s been many years since you’ve seen Requiem for a Dream, director Darren Aronofsky‘s gut-punch of a movie, you can probably hear the film’s most famous piece of music in your head if you read the words “Lux Aeterna.” That catchy, eerie song comes courtesy of composer Clint Mansell, and since Requiem for a Dream is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the Kronos Quartet has reconvened (in a socially-distanced setting, thanks to the pandemic) to bring that haunting tune back int...

‘Antebellum’ Review: Janelle Monáe Delivers a Bold Performance in an Otherwise Jumbled Thriller

There’s a big twist in Antebellum. Those who regard the mere mention of a twist to be itself a spoiler are going to have a lot of trouble with this one, as the twists and turns are baked into the narrative. The film simply wouldn’t exist without them. And while we wouldn’t dream of giving away what those big twists are, it’s safe to say that Antebellum lives or dies by how willing you are to play along with the film’s bag of tricks. Suffice to say, we won’t be giving away any of the film’s twis...

New ‘Antebellum’ Clip Brings in a Creepy Child

There’s a rule written down somewhere that says if you’re making a horror movie, you really should consider including at least one creepy child. It can be a boy or a girl, but usually, it’s a creepy girl. Antebellum certainly got the memo, because the clip below does indeed feature a creepy little girl. And just to make things extra creepy, she’s wearing old-timey clothes, so you know something is seriously wrong here. Antebellum Clip Antebellum was originally supposed to hit theaters, ...
