Writer, producer, director and actor, Larry Fessenden has become an indie horror icon with his idiosyncratic, genre-bending films. Known for realistic, character-driven horror stories. Fessenden’s films often examine the disintegration of civilization and humanity, focusing on psychological dread instead of blood and guts.
Scream Factory and IFC Midnight have teamed up to present four of Fessenden’s critically acclaimed films on Blu-ray for the first time. The Larry Fessenden Collection includes No Telling, Habit, Wendigo, and The Last Winter, and features new director-supervised HD transfers.
Fox has just unveiled our very first look at Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, the sequel to the successful adaptation of the first Maze Runner.
The film will center on Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and the group of survivors who successfully navigated their way out of the Glade, where they discover that they have all just been a part of a devious program appropriately named WCKD. When they learn that there is only more trouble if they stay where they are at, they decide to break out to see if there are answers in the Scorch, the outside world that has been obliterated by a massive solar flare. You can read a synopsis and check out the trailer below.
The East Director: Zal Batmanglij
Writer(s): Zal Batmanglij, Brit Marling
Cast: Brit Marling, Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd, Ellen Page, Patricia Clarkson Fox Searchlight Pictures
Rated R | 116 minutes
Release Date: June 21, 2013
Directed by Zal Batmanglij, The East stars Brit Marling as Sarah Ross, a former FBI agent who becomes an undercover operative for the private intelligence firm Hiller/Brood. Sarah’s latest assignment: infiltrate The East, an anarchist collective that targets multinational corporations and their corrupt CEOs.
Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd and Ellen Page co-star as Benji and Lizzy, leaders of The East who use “jams” to expose pharmaceutical companies and energy conglomerates that destroy the planet. These agents of chaos aren’t just environmental activists, but victims of the system. Take for instance the East’s doctor, played by Toby Kebbell, who used a “miracle” antibiotic while on an aid mission to Africa. The drug ravaged his nervous system; he has to use superglue to treat wounds because his hands are too shaky to make stitches.
Friends With Benefits Directed by Will Gluck
Starring Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Patricia Clarkson, Richard Jenkins and Woody Harrelson
Release Date: July 22, 2011
The imitation of previous romantic comedies has been extremely widespread, comparable to an artistic pandemic. It is almost as if Hollywood directors and screenwriters are admonishing their audiences that original ideas and concepts are a scarcity in the contemporary comedic landscape. The exactness to which certain films resemble other certain films encapsulates the mental impotence that is pervading and perpetuating in the Hollywood studios. No imminent sign indicates this hardship from ceasing. But instead of placing a profoundly effective emphasis on discovering new ideas that would beneficially propel comedic narratives toward a new and improved comedic dimension, individuals who are responsible for the construction of such films find such an endeavor to be fruitless. Most should be opposed to forking over ten dollars for a ticket to see an uninspiring film that prides itself on its unoriginality.
