Edgar Wright’s Horror Movie ‘Last Night in Soho’ Adds Matt Smith and Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie to Cast

Last Night in Soho, the psychological horror-thriller from director Edgar Wright, just picked up two exciting new cast members – Matt Smith, of Doctor Who fame, and Leave No Trace break-out Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie. The two join the previously cast Anya Taylor-Joy in a film that Wright has described as being in the same style as Roman Polanski’s Repulsion and Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now.  The Last Night in Soho cast continues to impress. After casting The Witch and Split star Anya Taylor...

‘Dragged Across Concrete’ Trailer: Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn Play Crooked Cops for ‘Bone Tomahawk’ Director

Director S. Craig Zahler revels in telling nasty, brutal stories. He burst on the scene with the ultra-violent western Bone Tomahawk and followed that up with Brawl in Cell Block 99, a deeply unpleasant, unabashedly gory prison movie two years later. Now he’s back with Dragged Across Concrete, a movie whose title may telegraph what the audience could feel like after watching it. Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn play cops who get caught in a video of police brutality and subsequently plunge into the ...

Brian Tyree Henry Wants to Know Why ‘They Cloned Tyrone’

Brian Tyree Henry, a great actor who deserves to be in all the movies all the time, is set to star in in the thriller They Cloned Tyrone. Juel Taylor, who wrote Creed II, will direct the film, which involves characters mixed up in a government conspiracy that involves – I assume – cloning, and also someone named Tyrone. The project is hot right now, and was won by Macro in a bidding war. Variety broke the news about Brian Tyree Henry joining They Cloned Tyrone. If you somehow don’t know who ...

‘Triple Frontier’ Trailer: Oscar Isaac and Ben Affleck Can’t Go Back to Their Normal Lives

Triple Frontier‘s long road to the big screen is almost as fascinating as the film itself. The drug money heist thriller was in the works for years at Paramount Pictures with Katherine Bigelow set to helm the film. Then Netflix picked it up with Oscar-nominated A Most Violent Year director J.C. Chandor attached. Meanwhile, the cast went through quite a revolving door of actors, with Johnny Depp and Mark Wahlberg at one point slated to lead, then Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum. But the while the c...

Killing Eve, Phoebe Waller-Bridge‘s dark, twisted, hilarious, sexy, weird series starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, will be back for more bloodshed soon. The second season arrives in April, and while we wait for that to arrive, a new trailer is here – just in time for Valentine’s Day. Watch the Killing Eve season 2 trailer below.

‘Mastering Your Past,’ From Director of Sundance Darling ‘Sweetheart,’ Lands at Legendary

After breaking out with his feature directorial debut Sleight, J.D. Dillard is becoming a hot commodity in Hollywood, with his latest project becoming the center of a heated bidding war. Legendary beat out other competitors for the rights to Mastering Your Past, a thriller that landed Dillard a seven-figure deal to co-write the script with Matt Owens (Luke Cage, The Defenders) and another seven figures to direct. This right off the heels of the rave reviews for his latest Sundance darling, Swee...

‘The Invisible Man’ Remake Will Be Low Budget and “Edgy,” Lexi Alexander Pitched a ‘Mummy’ Reboot

Just last month, we learned Jason Blum and his über-successful Bluhouse Productions banner were tackling a remake of The Invisible Man, the first in what could be many revamps of Universal’s classic movie monsters. The Dark Universe that began with Tom Cruise’s The Mummy in 2017 is dead, which means they’re taking a whole new approach to some of horror’s most revered monsters. Producer Jason Blum has opened up about how The Invisible Man deal came about and teased a hopeful future for the rest ...

‘Counterpart’ Canceled at Starz After Two Seasons, But It Might Be Picked Up Elsewhere

Before the likes of Netflix and Hulu came around, most shows that got canceled were gone forever. But thanks to the popularity of streaming services, we’re now living in an age where the axing of a show doesn’t necessarily mean it’s dead. Another show has been added to the purgatory of cancellation for the time being, but there’s a chance it might be picked up elsewhere. Counterpart is a sci-fi espionage thriller at Starz starring J.K. Simmons that has been running for two seasons. Sadly, the s...

The New ‘Veronica Mars’ Hulu Series Will Grow Up With Kristen Bell [TCA 2019]

Hulu presented panels to the Television Critics Association today. During an executive panel, Hulu’s SVP of Originals Craig Erwich said that the streamer’s upcoming limited series of Veronica Mars would “grow up,” just like series star Kristen Bell has since the show premiered in 2004. “Rob Thomas, who is the steward of the franchise, has really threaded the needle,” Erwich said. “From what I’ve seen of the show and read, it is very true to the character, very true to the world, true to th...

Brad Anderson, the filmmaker responsible for Session 9, The Machinist, Beirut and more, has a new thriller in the works.

‘Bird Box’ Honest Trailer: Netflix Canceled a Blind Superhero Show for This?

Netflix famously canceled Daredevil, the Marvel series about a blind superhero. But they went ahead and produced the adaptation of Josh Malerman’s novel Bird Box. Apparently it had a better chance of survival for those without the ability to see. The result was a more grisly, less subtle, subpar retread of A Quiet Place, and Honest Trailers couldn’t resist taking some jabs at the movie, even though it didn’t get a traditional home video release.

‘Cold Pursuit’ Clip: Don’t Try to Best Liam Neeson

The lesson in all Liam Neeson movies seem to be: don’t underestimate Liam Neeson. But many men do, and it ends in them getting their heads brutally bashed in by the gravelly-voiced vengeance-seeker. Neeson has another cold weather thriller on his hands with Cold Pursuit, a remake of a 2014 Norwegian black comedy titled In Order of Disappearance. While the film so far doesn’t seem to have that same dark comedy bent of the original, Lionsgate has released a new clip that could potentially inspire...

‘Miss Bala’ Review: Gina Rodriguez is an Action Star Deserving of a Better Vehicle

To say Gina Rodriguez was born to be an action star would be a misnomer. Up until last year, Rodriguez was best known as the star of the satirical CW comedy Jane the Virgin, winning a Golden Globe for her infinitely charming performance as the plucky title character. But an action star is what Rodriguez seems destined to be, and that’s all right by me. The actress has taken to the character type like it was second nature, impressing last year as a gruff and damaged paramedic in Annihilation. It...

‘Run’, a New Thriller From ‘Searching’ Director Aneesh Chaganty, Hits Theaters in 2020

Aneesh Chaganty, the co-writer/director of last year’s computer screen mystery Searching, is following up that movie with a more traditionally-filmed thriller called Run. Sarah Paulson (Glass, American Horror Story) stars opposite newcomer Kiera Allen, and now Lionsgate has unveiled the movie’s official release date. Find out the Run release date below, and why it’s good news for the filmmaking team. Run follows a smart, cool teenager known as “Daughter” (Allen) who uses a wheelchair and is ...

‘You’ Season 2 Stalks New Female Lead From ‘Haunting of Hill House’

Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Ferguson to Reteam for Sci-Fi Thriller From ‘Westworld’s Lisa Joy

Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Ferguson are two of the most magnetic movie stars working today, and their chemistry felt a little wasted in The Greatest Showman. So it’s good they’re reuniting in a sci-fi romantic thriller from the co-creator of HBO’s Westworld, Lisa Joy. Jackman and Ferguson are set to star in Reminiscence, an ambitious sci-fi thriller that will mark Joy’s feature directorial debut. The two will lead the Reminiscence cast as a couple who fall in love in a near-future world where tec...

Jordan Peele Explains What Sets ‘Us’ Apart from ‘Get Out’

Jordan Peele‘s eagerly anticipated sophomore directing effort, Us, debuted the first trailer on Christmas last year, giving families something to squirm about while they were home for the holidays. The trailer does a fine job of setting up the story of a black family (Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex), who suddenly find themselves stalked and hunted by another family of unsettling doppelgangers. Knowing what Jordan Peele accomplished with Get Out, many have assu...

‘Relive’ Review: David Oyelewo and Storm Reid Star in Engaging But Familiar Time-Twisty Thriller [Sundance]

Remember the TV series Day Break? Probably not, because it only aired for one season back in 2006. It starred Taye Diggs as a detective stuck in a Groundhog Day situation, forced to experience the same day again and again until he solves the murder of an important public official. Jacob Aaron Estes’ new movie Relive feels like that show mixed with Frequency, the Dennis Quaid/Jim Caviezel movie in which father and son communicate across time. Selma star David Oyelowo plays L.A.P.D. detective Jac...

Mini-reviews: Transcription by Kate Atkinson & Death in the Spotlight by Robin Stevens

I have been catching up with books from 2018 that I never got around to reading then and will be writing mini-reviews for those I highly recommend. The two I have for today happen to be historical novels set in the early 20th century. First up, it’s Kate Atkinson’s Transcription (Little, Brown and Company, September 2018), a historical thriller about spies in London in early 20th century. The book mostly goes back and forth between the 40s and the 50s, following the narrative of Juli...

‘The Report’ Review: Adam Driver Impresses in a Quiet, Boiling Political Thriller That Will Infuriate You [Sundance]

Scott Z. Burns has plenty of Hollywood experience as the writer of The Bourne Ultimatum, Side Effects, Contagion and The Informant. With his feature directorial debut The Report, one of our most anticipated titles of Sundance this year, the filmmaker shows that he’s picked up a step or two from directors Paul Greengrass and Steven Soderbergh. The result is a quiet but boiling political thriller that explores the infuriating and ethically questionable enhanced interrogation tactics employed by t...

Raised in total isolation by a robot, a young woman’s world is turned upside down when a survivor from the outside bangs on their airlock door one day. What is true? What is real? Is there a difference between the two? I Am Mother takes a familiar premise and executes it to near-perfection, with first-time feature filmmaker Grant Sputore aided by a fantastic script, a star-making performance from UK actress Clara Rugaard, a strong supporting turn from Hilary Swank, and a brilliantly realized ne...

Few directors today make genre movies as intimate Karyn Kusama. The director of The Invitation, Girl Fight, and Jennifer’s Body gets real up close and personal to her characters, especially the protagonist of her latest film, Destroyer. Detective Erin Bell — a bulldozer of a character played by Nicole Kidman — is not a character you can take your eyes away from. The character originated from the co-writers of The Invitation, Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. Like that party-in-the-hills-gone-terribly...

‘Serenity’ Director Steven Knight Doesn’t Want to Put His Movies in a Genre [Interview]

Serenity is probably not the movie audiences are expecting. Steven Knight’s third feature as a director is a bonkers thriller, both old-fashioned and modern, that defies expectations. Nobody could ever call this movie predictable. Knight says he’s not a fan of the constraints of any given genre, and it shows in Serenity, a movie not tied down to the rules of a thriller. It’s not an easy film to put in a box or even say much about without spoiling anything. It’s the first feature Knight has dire...

‘Serenity’ Has the Wackiest Ending of 2019 and We’re Only a Month In

Right from the beginning, there is something off about Serenity. The sultry neo-noir thriller starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway seems to take place on a fictional fishing island that boasts a New England name but a tropical climate, while half the residents speak with a vague Southern twang. McConaughey’s character, Baker Dill, receives strange visions and omens — some of them seemingly supernatural in nature. And there’s the matter of Jeremy Strong‘s bespectacled businessman chasi...

M. Night Shyamalan's 'Glass' Doesn't Recognize Its Own Strength

None M. Night Shyamalan holds a unique place within the critical discourse of the film industry. These days, he's met with constant skepticism if not outright derision; after disasters like The Happening (2008), The Last Airbender (2010) and After Earth (2013), the mega-stardom that followed his early works dissolved almost entirely. Instead, he was left only with the kind of begrudging respect offered to cult directors, with the bar for reentry into the class of the respected set tremendously ...
