Win Tickets To An Advance For LAGGIES Saturday, November 1st at 7:25PM in San Francisco.

Overeducated and underemployed, 28 year old Megan (Keira Knightley) is in the throes of a quarterlife crisis. Squarely into adulthood with no career prospects, no particular motivation to think about her future and no one to relate to, Megan is comfortable lagging a few steps behind – while her friends check off milestones and celebrate their new grown-up status. When her high-school sweetheart (Mark Webber) proposes, Megan panics and– given an unexpected opportunity to escape for a week – hides out in the home of her new friend, 16-year old Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Annika’s world-weary single dad Craig (Sam Rockwell).

ABCs OF DEATH 2 Opening Animated Sequence

To celebrate Halloween and the theatrical opening of ABCs OF DEATH 2 today, we have two horrific pieces of content to share.

The first is the very cool and creepy animated opening title sequence from the film. The animation was done by Wolfgang Matzl with paper cutouts. Music composed by Andre Roessler.

ABCs OF DEATH 2 is the follow-up to the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning from Nigeria to UK to Brazil and everywhere in between. It features segments directed by over two dozen of the world's leading talents in contemporary genre film. The film is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and at times confrontational, ABCs OF DEATH 2 is another
global celebration of next generation genre filmmaking.

Kelly Reilly Joins True Detective Season 2

The cast for the second season of True Detective is several steps closer to completion. Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn are confirmed (and Taylor Kitsch said recently that his deal is done), and now the show has added yet more names, with Kelly Reilly, Michael Irby, Abigail Spencer and Leven Rambin all reportedly signing on.

Set in California locales, and once more written by Nic Pizzolatto, the new season sees Farrell as Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vaughn will play Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner. Rachel McAdams is reported to be close to a deal to play police detective Ani Bezzerides.

Irby is playing Elvis Ilinca, McAdams’ police partner, but the other new arrivals’ roles are shrouded in secrecy for now. Justin Lin is set to direct the first two of what will be eight hour-long episodes and the new season is scheduled to start shooting later this autumn in California.

Pride & Prejudice & Zombies First Look

Until recently, the adaptation of Seth Graeme-Smith’s Jane Austen-meets-horror genre-mash book Pride And Prejudice And Zombies spent its time lurking in development limbo. But thanks to finally locking in a script and a director (Burr Steers) and a rash of casting, it’s in production and Entertainment Weekly has grabbed a first look image.

The picture shows the Bennett sisters Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) tooled up and ready to fight the “Sorry Stricken”, AKA the risen dead, who cause trouble for the family. And they thought finding marriageable mates was hard enough…

Still, they’re clearly all ready for combat, particularly our heroine, Elizabeth. “Even in the original story, Elizabeth’s a fighter and beyond her contemporaries in her ambitions and her ideas of women,” she tells EW. “She’s a badass warrior. She’s a ninja.”

With Steers re-writing a script that has been through the word processor of David O. Russell (who considered directing), the film also has Sam Riley (as Mr. Darcy) Jack Huston (Mr. Wickham) and more, including Matt Smith, Lena Headey, Sally Phillips and Douglas Booth. It’ll arrive on screens next year, finally.

Seth Rogen To Play Steve Wozniak Opposite Christian Bale

Seth Rogen is being eyed to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak opposite Christian Bale in Sony's Steve Jobs movie, while Jessica Chastain is also being sought for a role in the film, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.

Danny Boyle is directing the film — which is not a traditional biopic — from a script by Aaron Sorkin, who had access to Jobs’ authorized biography by Walter Isaacson.

The film is expected to follow Jobs during three stressful, high-profile product launches including the first Macintosh in 1984 and Apple's 2001 debut of the iPod.

While neither Chastain nor Rogen have deals in place, the latter actor is in talks to play Wozniak, who created the Apple I computer and co-created the Apple II computer in the mid-1970s.

Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady are producing the film, which Sony has high hopes for, as it could be a major awards contender.

Rogen has proved himself more than capable of handling dramatic roles with his performances in “Take This Waltz” and “50/50.” Rogen's potential pairing with Bale has been compared to Martin Scorsese's decision to cast Jonah Hill alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” which of course culminated with the actor's second Oscar nomination.

Rogen next stars opposite James Franco in “The Interview,” which Sony will release on Christmas Day. Rogen and producing partner Evan Goldberg co-directed the R-rated comedy, just as they did Sony's upcoming animated movie “Sausage Party.” Rogen recently wrapped Sony's untitled Christmas Eve movie, which reteams him with his “50/50” collaborators Joseph Gordon-Levitt and director Jonathan Levine.

Chastain, who is simply being courted for an unspecified role and does not have a deal in place, previously starred in Sony's “Zero Dark Thirty” and is known to have a close relationship with studio chief Amy Pascal. She next stars in Christopher Nolan's “Interstellar” and will soon be seen opposite Oscar Isaac in “A Most Violent Year.” She's represented by CAA and Mosaic.

Birdman Review: Don't Listen to the Hype

Michael Keaton's Birdman is one part bore-fest and two parts "Why did I agree to see this?"

Warning: This review contains MAJOR SPOILERS.
In Birdman, Michael Keaton plays Riggan Thomson, a washed-up actor who once played a flying comic book hero named Birdman, but whose recent exploits have landed him on Broadway. Riggan is also trying to ignore the character bulls eye that once garnered him millions but left him emotionally empty; now, he's funding his own production of Raymond Carver’s What We Talk About When We Talk About Love and desperate to be taken seriously. His cast includes the one seeking similar Hollywood cred (Naomi Watts) and his on-again/off-again fuckbuddy (Andrea Riseborough). But when the show loses one of its actors, his pretentious replacement (Edward Norton) starts to undo Riggan's comeback, leaving his post-rehab daughter (Emma Stone) to question his intentions and sanity, while his lawyer (Zach Galifianakis) tries to keep the lights on. As he enters the final preview night, Riggan's future hangs in the balance as his doppelganger begins to speak to him, seeking to undo his already fragile psyche.

Tonally all over the place, Birdman is one of those films that only true independent moviegoers will appreciate. Its experimental style feels like an inside joke about theater, actors, and the whole Hollywood structure, while going absolutely nowhere story-wise. Birdman will make you feel like a fourth wheel, the other three being Birdman, Itself, and Them. There are serious continuity issues throughout, such as the 'quiet moments of reflection' between Stone and Norton high above the street of competing shows. They're enjoyable together, but what they're saying to each other feels not at all connected to the larger story. The same goes for Norton himself, who disappears during the third act, while Keaton waxes poetic about his failed life. Keaton - who is clearly the best of the ensemble cast which Director Alejandro González Iñárritu has assembled - carries this film with a mixture of poise and psychosis that must haunt most Hollywood actors who struggle to remain relevant after hitting it big. To Riggan, he can feel Father Time and Doctor Regret on his back, reminding him of the mistakes of his past, with Keaton channeling his best Rebecca de Mornay from Dinner for Five.

But even Birdman can't keep this wreck of a performance piece from crashing to ground, as González Iñárritu seems to change the rules of this universe whenever the moment requires it. First we think Riggan is going insane as he's seemingly able to 'Jedi' items across the room, then spreads his wings near film's end to fly gracefully over New York without anyone recognizing him, and once again confined to Earth once more once he gets locked out of the theater. When his daughter thinks he's committed suicide during the final scene, we see her suddenly realize that he can in fact fly, something two minutes before he seemed incapable of doing. The one thing that's even worth mentioning is Gravity Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki's fluid filming that wants desperately to be Hitchcock. In the end, those transitions worked really well for Gravity because the tension was supposed to be in real time. Here, it just gets in the way because it's spread out over three days.

Filled with an ensemble cast who barely registers a blip (Riseborough and Watts are merely deadweight here), Birdman rockets between terse Hollywood commentary, the highs of empty zany comedy, and the depressive melancholy after a night of hard partying. This isn't Scarlet Johansson's Her by a long shot; but with critics trying to elevate this one to similar starry heights, don't listen to the hype. Birdman isn't worth your time under any circumstances, drunk, stoned, or merely curious.

Birdman is rated R for language throughout, some sexual content and brief violence and has a runtime of 119 minutes.

New images from TERMINATOR GENISYS and to be honest I am not impressed with the images at all. But I still have hope for the film.

See all the images after the Jump...

The filmmakers plan to re-create the memorable scene in the original ­Terminator when the T-800 lands at L.A.’s Griffith ­Observatory, complete with Schwarzenegger’s 36-year-old face and ripped, naked body. To achieve that, the special-effects team has created a “synthespian,” or synthetic thespian, using a body double plus scans of Schwarz­enegger’s face from the first film merged with what his face looks like now. The result: an entirely CG head of the Terminator circa 1984.
The filmmakers are counting on that technology, and the movie’s villain—a man/machine hybrid they’re keeping under wraps—to be visual game changers.

So far he has not found the one pure freak to add to his group. He makes them all confess their sin, telling him how they came to be a part of the show. He wants their darkest moments. The woman with no legs stabbed a man she was jealous of, though he had inspired to perform. The microcephalics, Pepper and Salty, dance around innocently, not a care in the world or even notice that Mordrake is watching them. Paul sought solace in the dark, he came during the depression though. People hated his deformity, and he hated them, wanted to make them fear him, so he tattooed his body, but not his handsome face. He could have ruled the world with a different body. None of them are the one he's looking for.

Mordrake pays Elsa a visit. He wishes to see her deformity, but she's not ready to show him it yet, she needs to talk. She thinks him the man that will launch her career, but he bursts her bubble. He calls out her delusion, calling her a waste of air. She tells him to get out, thinking him a fake, but he's very real. His freaks grab hold of her, pulling her prosthetic legs from her body, as she screams that she is not one of them. She pretends to be the zoo keeper of the freaks, but she's very much one of them.

Jimmy and Maggie run out of gas. Maggie thinks it's Jimmy's way of making a move on her, and she lashes out at him, but that's not his intention at all. With the curfew in effect, Jimmy thinks that they should get off the road and hide, but Maggie knows the intentions of men. Jimmy insists that she isn't his type, but she knows that in the dark men are less picky, and doesn't believe him that pretty faces aren't his type. He tells her that she has nothing to worry about from him, she should worry more about the townies, they only tolerate them because their freakishness makes them feel better about themselves. A car approaches, and Maggie follows Jimmy into hiding.

The bratty brother is finally awake in the bus, and he wonders if he's going to die. The picnicing girl has no intention of dying there, and she doesn't think that he will either. The little boy is asleep, weak from hunger. She tries to get the brother to untie her as Twisty returns. He opens the cage, and she makes a move. She shoulders Twisty out of the way, and runs off. The brother sits and cowers with fear as she runs away.

Jimmy and Maggie navigate the shadows trying to make it back to camp. They spot the girl running for her life, with the demented clown on her trail. The pair hides, waiting and watching as the clown takes her down, knocking her out and scoops her up to return her. Jimmy follows the clown to see if he can help the girl, and Maggie has no choice but to tag along.

Elsa rights herself, trying to seduce Mordrake, but he's beyond seduction. He wants her misery only, her pair. 1932 sexual depravity hit all corners. Whatever you wanted you can have it, and Elsa found herself in the middle of it. She was a myth, the star even there. She never let her clients touch her, unlike the other whores, she dominated them on every level. In time she attracted clients and audiences. She called the watchers, she didn't know their names, only that they paid well. In the end she was nothing, she became a ghost. But that's not the worse. Mordrake wants more.

Jimmy and Maggie watch the clown as he goes back to the bus. Jimmy cautions Maggie, wants her to stay while he gets a closer look. He peers inside, and he knows that the guy is a killer. Before he can go get the cops, Twisty's spoiled sidekick Dandy knocks out Jimmy. Now it's time for the real show.

Hotel Olympia, 1932. Elsa was the top seller, but this time was different. Drunk, she shows up, and the camera's roll. The man offers her a drink. She was all alone, for the film which was off. She was utterly powerless, but even drugged it wasn't enough to dull the pain as they bound her and cut off her legs. They left her there to die, but one of her clients had fallen in love with her. He followed her everywhere, and rushed in the minute they left. She never forgave him for it. The film was passed around everywhere. She was a star, but her career was over. She had the most beautiful legs. Mordrake's other face tells him that she is the one, and Elsa is ready for him to take her, but as she begs him to take her he hesitates. He hears music.

In the woods, the show is starting, and music sounds as Twisty plays off key. Dandy announces his act. He plans to saw Tiny Tits (Maggie) in half. Jimmy awakens as the show begins, and he knocks out Dandy to save Maggie. Twisty claps an applause, and Jimmy tells everyone to run. Twisty manages to grab only Jimmy and brings him back to his bus. As he raises his scissors over Jimmy, he stops, noticing Mordrake. Mordrake wants to see the show though.

Dandy screams at his former hostages. He wants to finish his show. Maggie points them into the direction of the road, telling them to call the police as Maggie leads Dandy away. He trips over a log. She ruined his Halloween.

Mordrake tries to get Twisty to open up, but he remains silent. He wants him to remove his mask, to tell him his story. Twisty's jaw is all but gone, he's not able to do much more than make some noise. Mordrake tells him to slow, and focus so that he can understand him. It was 1943, and he was the special Chidren's clown in a traveling carnival. He loved the children, but not the freaks, they were mean. One night, two little people invite him to join them for a smoke around the fire. It burns his throat, and the teasing goes on. One of the guys accuses him of molesting the kids, they scare him, telling him that the cops are coming for him, and the poor simpleton believes and runs off. News travels quickly in the carnival circles, and he went home, but his mother had died, so he sought solace in his bus. He had the idea that he would turn trash into gold, he tried to sell his creations to a toy store, but the toy maker refused to buy them. He tried to interest one little boy in his toy, but only scared him and his mother. The Toy maker alludes that he's one of those people who do bad things to kids, and Twisty freaks out. He's not a bad person. Depressed, he tries to commit suicide, but he's so dumb he can't even do that right, and managed to only blow off his jaw with the shotgun. That's when he had a new idea. He haunted the freak show. It's a sad tale a pitiful one, but Mordrake wants more. Twisty saved the kids from the freaks. The children forgot that they loved him, and the freaks were stealing them once more. He tells Mordrake how came up with a show for the child that he took, scare the crap out of is more like it. How things happened aren't quite how he remembers them. Is the end of out twisted clown? He was nice and didn't make the child do any chores, though he did kill his mother. He even got a pretty babysitter for him, no mention of the boyfriend he killed. He believes he's good, and Mordrake's other face renders his decision. Mordrake has met many, but only Twisty has caused the demon to weep. Mordrake drives his sword into Twisty's stomach as Jimmy watches from the bus. The dead troupe claim their newest member, welcoming him into their fold. In death his jaw is restored, he's whole, and he has a new home. Jimmy hides before the ghosts can see him.

Dandy comes back to find Twisty dead. He takes up Twisty's fallen mask, and slides into his serial killer state. Sirens sound in the distance, which aren't nearly as comforting as they should be to Jimmy.

Morning has arrived. The detectives look around the scene of Twisty's and Dandy's last act. One questions Maggie asking if she ever saw the faces of her almost killers, but she didn't, the sawer had a mask. Another detective focuses on Jimmy, asking if he recognized the voices. He didn't. The detective tells Maggie that she's a hero, she got the others back to their families safely, but she insists the real hero is Jimmy. The other detective takes a more accusatory stance, acting as if Jimmy was in on the whole thing, even threatening to take him in. Jimmy isn't taking his crap though, and tells him to write his name down so he knows how to spell it when he goes to the reporters. He alludes that the real killer is them, they killed Meep and he didn't deserve to die, someone is going to pay.

Maggie and Jimmy arrive back at the show, and Elsa gives them an icy reception, thinking they've been out lollygagging all night. Being turned down by Mordrake is rubbing her the wrong way. Jimmy announces that the curfew has been lifted. Maggie tells Elsa that they caught the killer, rather Jimmy did, and that because of him the kids were saved. She gives Jimmy a kiss before leaving him, her opinion of him has changed. Jimmy may be reconsidering his type. Elsa sees that Maggie has cast a spell on Jimmy. Elsa tells him about Mordrake visiting, Jimmy knows he saw him claim his freak. People arrive at the show, and Elsa is sure that they're getting ready to drive them away, but they aren't. One of the fathers has come to thank Jimmy, he saved his son and his town. The people embrace the freaks, and Jimmy searches out Maggie's face, unsure of the reception. Elsa uses the good fortune to tell everyone about the evening's show. Dell drunkenly stumbles from his trailer to see Jimmy surrounded by the townspeople being enbraced.

Elsa and the others ready for a big show. She has news for the embittered Dot and Bette. They have a sold out show, and she's changing around the show. Dot thinks that now that there's a sold out show they'll be warming up for her, but she's doing no such thing. They're warming up for the pinheads. They were last week's big news, and that banner has been taken down. Mansfield now Richard Spencer comes stumbling in. He'd wanted to buy a ticket,but the show is sold out. He hands Elsa his card, claiming to be a talent scout, and she makes room for him.

Dandy returns home looking more a mess than normal. Dora is still not impressed by him, and she reminds him that Halloween is over. She wants him to take a tray to his mother, who is exhausted after trying to find him a better costume. When Dandy just stands there, Dora demands that he move out of her way so that she can take the tray up herself. He slashes her throat, and Dora bleeds out on the floor as Dandy sits there laughing.

Here is the first TV spot for AGENT CARTER series, arriving in January 2015 on ABC

Years before Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team swore to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive, there was Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”), who pledged the same oath but lived in a different time when women weren’t recognized as being as smart or as tough as their male counterparts.

But no one should ever underestimate Peggy.

It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Peggy a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field; putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – aka Captain America.

Watch the clip after the Jump...

When old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”) finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy – the only person he can trust – to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy, “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World”), to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for releasing these weapons of mass destruction. But Jarvis, who is a creature of habit and sticks to a rigid daily routine, is going to have to make some major life changes if he’s going to be able to keep up with Peggy.

If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse. And as she delves deeper into her investigation, she may find that those she works for are not who they seem, and she might even begin to question whether Stark is as innocent as he claims.

Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter
James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis
Chad Michael Murray as Agent Jack Thompson
Enver Gjokaj as Agent Daniel Sousa
Shea Whigham as Chief Roger Dooley.
Scripted by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
Dominic Cooper will reprise his role as Howard Stark
Kyle Bornheimer plays Agent Ray Krzeminski, who will clash with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell)
Lyndsy Fonseca plays aspiring actress named Angie Martinelli who befriends Peggy Carter

First Look At #TerminatorGenisys

We’ve heard a lot of talk about how Terminator: Genisys will play with the timeline originally established by James Cameron in the first two films. Now, with Entertainment Weekly publishing the first proper looks at the new movie via its latest covers, there are also some intriguing story details to relate.

Naturally, we would caution that if you read ahead, you’re wandering into SPOILER TERRITORY, so be suitably advised.

Genisys reportedly starts in 2029, with the war between the human rebels and Skynet’s malicious machines is in full swing. Present and correct – though played now by different actors – are John Connor (Jason Clarke) and Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) who are taking advantage of pushing back against the antagonistic artificial intelligence to send Reese to 1984 on his mission to save Sarah Connor from termination at the hands of a killer cyborg.

So far, so story as usual for the franchise. But when Reese makes it into the past, things are very different. Sarah Connor is not the same woman we met in The Terminator, played by Linda Hamilton. In an altered timeline, she’s portrayed by Emilia Clarke and is an antisocial recluse who has killer sniper skills, but little ability to interact with her fellow humans. And that’s because – twist alert! – she was orphaned at nine by a Terminator attack and has been living with an aging T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) as protector since then. “Since she was nine, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen,” producer Megan Ellison tells the magazine. “But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, ‘That’s not what I want to do.’ It’s her decision that drives the story in a very different direction.”

And according to co-star Matt Smith, who plays a still-unnamed comrade to Connor, the plan was to honor the franchise while bringing something fresh. “It’s like going on tour again if you’re Pink Floyd – the audience always wants to hear some of the old songs. There are enough nods to the past that people will feel satisfied.”

Thor: The Dark World’s Alan Taylor directed the film, and it’ll be demanding your movie-going money on July 3 next year. Apparently one of the flesh-free Terminators appearing in the film is very happy to be in the thing – check out that grin…
