Robert Englund Says He's Too Old to Play Freddy Krueger Again

1 hour ago

When it comes to horror movies, A Nightmare on Elm Street is definitely on the Mount Rushmore of the genre, featuring one of the biggest horror villains ever. Freddy Krueger is a legend and he has been portrayed by Robert Englund in nearly every movie. But sadly, it looks like the actor has given up on the thought of ever revisiting the horror classic. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Robert Englund confirmed that he will never play Freddy Krueger on the big screen again.

It's hard to believe, but Robert Englund is 70-years old and just doesn't think that he can pull off playing Freddy anymore. Freddy Krueger is a physically demanding character and Englund doesn't think that his body, specifically his back and spine, can handle it at his age. He had this to say.

"I'm too old to do another Freddy now. If I do a »

Pennywise Actor Teases It 2 Plans, Calls It Actively Different

2 hours ago

It was always expected to be a hit, but the Stephen King adaptation has become one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. There were also pretty much always plans for a second movie, but given the success, It 2 has become a top priority for New Line. Bill Skarsgard will be returning to the role of Pennywise the clown and, in a recent interview, he revealed a little bit about what we can expect to see in the sequel, and a little bit of what he hopes will happen. Here's what he had to say about it.

"The first movie worked so well at what it is trying to do, I think, and ultimately that is the kids' story, and you follow these kids and you sort of fall in love with these kids. And the second one will be the adult story. And I think the right way to »

Why John Carpenter Refuses to Watch His Old Movies

2 hours ago

John Carpenter is a horror icon and has given us some of the best movies that the genre has to offer, so why can't he watch any of his old movies? Apparently, the man behind Halloween and Big Trouble in Little China can't sit back and see what we all see when we're watching one of his great movies. As it turns out, Carpenter's decision to not watch any of his old projects makes a lot of sense and seems to be the same reason that musicians don't listen to their work and actors don't like to watch themselves on screen.

In a recent interview with the Guardian, John Carpenter explained that he stays away from his old movies after being asked if he ever watches them. It's too agonizing for him as he only sees the mistakes and it brings him back to some of the stressful times »

Tyler Perry's Acrimony Trailer Sends Taraji P. Henson Into a Rampage

2 hours ago

Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Acrimony, the new film from director Tyler Perry, along with the new poster and first look photo featuring stars Taraji P. Henson and Lyriq Bent as the married couple Melinda and Robert. For those expecting a wacky Tyler Perry comedy, you won't find that here, with the director taking a turn into thriller territory with this tale of marital strife that is much, much darker than the filmmaker's Madea comedies, but it remains to be seen how audiences will react to this type of movie from the acclaimed director.

Acrimony centers on a faithful wife (Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson), tired of standing by her devious husband (Lyriq Bent), becomes enraged when it becomes clear she has been betrayed. The trailer takes us back to the beginning of their relationship, when a young Melinda (Ajiona Alexus) first meets a young Robert (Antonio Madison »

Star Wars 9 Will Unite All Three Trilogies

3 hours ago

J.J. Abrams managed to successfully reintroduce the Star Wars franchise to the masses with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He took a little break to let Rian Johnson come in and direct Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but he's coming back for Star Wars 9 and he's got some big ideas. He and screenwriter Chris Terrio are working on the screenplay, and apparently, this is the movie that "unites all three trilogies" together. Here's what a Reddit user had to say after a recent encounter with both Abrams and Terrio.

"They said that they're going to be brave and there will be big surprises. I got the impression that Jj felt like he had to refresh previous Star Wars moments for a modern audience in Tfa, and now it feels like they have free reign to do what they want. Apparently they've had no interference from Kathleen or Pablo or the Lucasfilm Story Group. »

Netflix's Jim and Andy Trailer Has Carrey Possessed by Kaufman

3 hours ago

Netflix has released the first trailer for Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, which will premiere globally on the streaming service Friday, November 17. While that's also the same day that Justice League hits theaters nationwide, this documentary won't exactly appeal to superhero fanboys, but for those who follow comedy lore, it's certainly shaping up to be a must-see film. This trailer comes just a month after Netflix acquired this Jim Carrey and Andy Kaufman documentary at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it had its world premiere screening.

Director Chris Smith presents a fascinating deep dive into actor Jim Carrey's time spent portraying famed and complicated comedian Andy Kaufman. Using approximately 100 hours of footage shot on the set of Man on the Moon documenting Carrey's transformation into Kaufman for four months, the new trailer for this Netflix documentary features interview footage with Jim Carrey in present day, who reveals that Universal Pictures, »

Terminator 6 Begins Shooting in Spring 2018

4 hours ago

After the disappointment that was Terminator: Genisys, it was pretty hard to imagine a scenario that would excite fans about another movie in the franchise. But somehow, here we are. Terminator 6, which sees the return of Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, is set to begin filming in March of next year. Arnold Schwarzenegger had previously indicated this would be the case, but now it's been confirmed. Things are moving right along with the sequel, which means that pre-production appears to be going smoothly.

Deadpool director Tim Miller has been tapped to helm Terminator 6, but perhaps most importantly, James Cameron, who created the franchise and directed the first two installments, is on board as an executive producer. And he's been very involved in the process. Filming on the new Terminator movie is said to be taking place in several locations around Europe, including Budapest, Hungary and Spain. As of right now, »

Longtime Weinstein Collaborator Calls Out Hollywood: Everybody Knew

4 hours ago

Scott Rosenberg, a Hollywood producer and screenwriter of movies such as Beautiful Girls, Gone in 60 Seconds, and High Fidelity, wrote a long piece about his old friend and collaborator, Harvey Weinstein. In the long scathing essay, Rosenberg called out everybody in the entertainment business for knowing about his sexual predatory behavior for years and never saying anything. The screenwriter/producer also took time out to apologize for being complicit during all of these years in what has become a major headline across the world over the last few weeks.

Scott Rosenberg took to Facebook earlier this week to not only condemn Harvey Weinstein's behavior, but also call out the entertainment industry for knowing about Weinstein's misconduct for decades, himself included. While Rosenberg claims that people didn't know about heavier accusations, he claims that everybody knew about Harvey Weinstein's aggressive behavior while stating he knew because everybody reportedly talked about it together. »

The Snowman Review: So Horrible, I Wish I Could Unsee It

5 hours ago

The Snowman is a huge disappointment. The film is painfully slow and disjointed with a nonsensical plot. The mystery at its core seems to have been strung together with masking tape. It boggles the mind that a well-regarded source novel, fantastic cast, and veteran production team ended up with such an unmitigated disaster. It is the latest example of how great ingredients do not always lead to a tasty cake. The Snowman is abysmal at best.

The Snowman takes place in present day Oslo, Norway; but flashbacks in time periodically. Michael Fassbender stars as Detective Harry Hole. He's a blackout drunk, but established as "legendary" investigator. Rebecca Ferguson costars as Katrine Bratt, a new detective chasing a mysterious cold case. A young mother disappears. The pair investigates, but have few clues except for a snowman left outside her home. This coincides with an anonymous, cryptic letter Hole received from "the »

Emilio Estevez Is the Most Profitable Actor in Hollywood

5 hours ago

Hard to believe? Yes. But Emilio Estevez, who hasn't appeared in a movie since 2010's The Way, which he directed, is the most profitable actor in modern Hollywood. He has overshadowed Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr., and even workaholic Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. So, how is this even possible? That's a good question.

Research has proven without a doubt that between the years 1980 and 2017, Emilio, brother to Charlie Sheen and son to Martin Sheen, has made more profitable movies than his big screen counterparts. Which is kind of amazing. The data comes from analysts at PartyCasino, a unit of the Gvc gaming group. They have intensely studied and broken down box office data from the past thirty years. And when the smoke cleared, it was Young Guns and Mighty Ducks star Estevez who stood as the king of Hollywood profitability. Perhaps he'll soon return to leading man status now that »

I, Tonya Trailer: Margot Robbie Is Disgraced Skater Tonya Harding

6 hours ago

Based on unbelievable but true events, I, Tonya is the darkly comedic tale of American figure skater Tonya Harding and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy has forever been defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived and worse-executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan.

Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Tonya Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother Lavona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie's I, Tonya is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding's life and career in all of its unchecked, and checkered, glory.

Today, Neon has released the first teaser trailer for I, Tonya. The movie opens in NY and La December »

Original Shining Twins Hated the 90s Remake

7 hours ago

If there's anyone you don't want reviewing your movie, it's the two creepy twin girls from Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. Played by Lisa and Louise Burns, the pair have emerged from the hallowed halls of horror to throw massive shade on the 90s miniseries remake of Stephen King's seminal novel. And guess what? They both think it's crap.

Stanley Kubrick's The Shining kicked off a decade of inventive and cult worthy 80s horror movies, and is now considered a seminal classic. But it was a bomb when it hit theaters in May of 1980, and King himself has never claimed to be a fan. But the original is full of iconic performances from Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall and Scatman Crothers. Perhaps the creepiest element is what Lisa and Louise Burns bring to the experience. That, and their elevator full of blood.

They still greatly admire the movie they appear in. »

Morgan Freeman Is Colin Powell in Bush Era Biopic

7 hours ago

Morgan Freeman has signed on to play former Secretary of State Colin Powell in a new biopic entitled Powell, which is being set up at Hyde Park Entertainment. Reginald Hudlin, who directed Marshall, the Thurgood Marshall biopic that hit theaters last weekend, is attached to direct, from a script by Ed Whitworth, which landed on the coveted Black List back in 2011. No production schedule has been given thus far, but with a major star like Morgan Freeman on board, it's possible that this could move forward very quickly.

The script follows Colin Powell when he was Secretary of State for President George W. Bush, following his service as a decorated U.S. Army General. He was the first ever African-American Secretary of State in U.S. history. He initially did not approve of the President's plan to invade Iraq, since he didn't believe that they possessed weapons of mass destruction. »

Ragnarok Star Wants a Female Thor in the McU

22 hours ago

With Thor: Ragnarok, we may finally be getting the solo Thor movie we've all been dying to see ever since the earliest days of the McU. That said, we've also still got Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 coming down the pipeline. That will ultimately make for seven McU movies with Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder. So, is it time for a female Thor in the McU? One Thor: Ragnarok actor thinks so.

Karl Urban, who joins the McU as Skurge in Thor: Ragnarok, has been making the press rounds to promote the movie. In a recent interview, he was asked about his feelings on a potential female Thor at some point joining the Marvel universe on the big screen. Not only is he in favor of the idea, but Urban things it's "overdue." Here's what he had to say about it.

"I think it's time. I think it's well overdue. »

Homecoming Becomes a Horror Movie in Spider-Man Fan Video

22 hours ago

Halloween is just around the corner and that means we're going to be treated to some new horror movies in theaters, as well as a ton of horror movies playing in constant rotation on cable. Plus, Netflix has a good deal of horror to keep people satisfied this Halloween season. Point is, horror is abundant right now. But why can't superheroes get in on the fun as well? No, we're not talking about The New Mutants trailer. Someone has re-imagined Spider-Man: Homecoming as a cheesy horror movie and, though it sounds crazy, it works.

This Spider-Man: Homecoming recut trailer was done by The D-Rock Sho and, no question, it's super cheesy. That can't be emphasized enough. However, it really does work as a kind of costumed slasher flick that would fit in a little better in the 90s or early 2000s, but the latest Spider-Man movie's cast works in context. »

Former Blink-182 Member Crowdfunds UFO in Attempt to Bend Space-Time

23 hours ago

John Podesta, who ran the unsuccessful election campaign for Hillary Clinton, tweeted, "Stay tuned for big announcement tomorrow," with a hashtag that read, "The Truth is Out There." Well, there's some truth out there, but it's not exactly what you're probably thinking right now. As it turns out, former Blink 182 guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge, has been in contact with Podesta since 2015, which became public knowledge when some of Hilary Clinton's legendary emails were leaked from her server. John Podesta was tweeting out for the world to get prepared for DeLonge's announcement that he's building his own UFO.

Un-ironically, the guy who once sang a song entitled "Aliens Exist" has taken his interest in the subject of aliens and UFOs way past the enthusiast level and straight into the new realm of obsession, forming an organization called To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science, which unites scientists, religious scholars, »
