#InherentVice Trailer Has Arrived

Inherent Vice,” is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel.

The film stars Oscar nominees Joaquin Phoenix (“The Master,” “Walk the Line”), Josh Brolin (“True Grit,” “No Country For Old Men”) and Owen Wilson (“The Royal Tennenbaums,” “Midnight in Paris”); Katherine Waterston (“Michael Clayton,” “Boardwalk Empire”); Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon (“Walk the Line”) and Benicio Del Toro (“Traffic”); Martin Short (“Frankenweenie”); Jena Malone (“The Hunger Games” series); and musician Joanna Newsom.



When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin…well, easy for her to say.

It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused—except this one usually leads to trouble.

With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists… Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp—all Thomas Pynchon.

Oscar nominee Paul Thomas Anderson (“There Will Be Blood,” “The Master”) directed “Inherent Vice” from a screenplay he wrote based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon. Anderson also produced the film, together with Oscar-nominated producers JoAnne Sellar and Daniel Lupi (“There Will Be Blood”). Scott Rudin and Adam Somner served as executive producers.

Anderson’s behind-the-scenes creative team included Oscar-winning director of photography Robert Elswit (“There Will Be Blood”), production designer David Crank (“The Master”), Oscar-nominated editor Leslie Jones (“The Thin Red Line”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Mark Bridges (“The Artist”). The music is by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with IAC Films, a JoAnne Sellar/Ghoulardi Film Company production, “Inherent Vice.” Opening in limited release on December 12, 2014 and expanding on January 9, 2015, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

“Inherent Vice” has been rated R for drug use throughout, sexual content, graphic nudity, language and some violence.

INHERENT VICE arrives December 12, 2014

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For #ANNABELLE in Sacramento

Win Tickets To An Advance For ANNABELLE on September 30th at 7:30PM in Sacramento.


ANNABELLE follows John (Ward Horton) and Mia Form (Annabelle Wallis), a young couple happily expecting their first child. But when the beautiful (depending on how you look at it) vintage doll John buys for his wife attracts the attention of an obsessed satanic cult, things go scare-shaped for them and, more violently, their neighbors.


Surviving that initial incident, the couple moves to a new house, but discover that Annabelle has somehow made the trip with them. Sadly, they don’t at first make the connection between the creepy object and the horror that befell them last time, but they soon learn that the doll has a demon attached to it, one determined to make their lives a living hell. Just once it would be nice to meet a demon whose only concern is that we’ve remembered to lock the door behind us or set the DVR for the right show…


With John R. Leonetti inheriting directorial duties from James Wan and Gary Dauberman providing the script this time, Annabelle also features Alfre Woodard, Eric Ladin, Tony Amendola and Michelle Romano.

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For #GONEGIRL In Las Vegas

Win Tickets To An Advance For GONE GIRL on Thursday, October 2nd at 7:00PM in Las Vegas.


From the tour de force thriller that became a bestselling must-read comes David Fincher’s screen version of Gone Girl, a wild ride through our modern media culture and down into the deep, dark fault lines of an American marriage – in all its unreliable promises, inescapable deceits and pitch-black comedy.


The couple at the center of the story – former New York writer Nick Dunne and his formerly “cool girl” wife Amy, now trying to make ends meet in the mid-recession Midwest – have all the sinuous outer contours of contemporary marital bliss. But on the occasion of their 5th wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing -- and those contours crack into a maze of fissures. Nick becomes the prime suspect, shrouded in a fog of suspicious behavior. Amy becomes the vaunted object of a media frenzy as the search for her, dead or alive, plays out before the eyes of a world thirsting for revelations.


Just as Nick and Amy personified the quintessential romantic match, Amy’s disappearance has all the markings of an emblematic domestic American crime. But her vanishing becomes a kind of hall of mirrors in which tantalizing and savage secrets lead to tantalizing and savage secrets. The events that unfold are thick with shocks and complications, but the questions that remain are what cut, with razor-sharp precision, to the bone: Who is Nick? Who is Amy? Who are any of us in marriages -- and a society -- built on a precarious base of projected images and disguises?


Twentieth Century Fox and Regency Entertainment Present a David Fincher film starring Ben Affleck, Gone Girl, with Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry. The screenplay is by Gillian Flynn based upon her novel. The producers are Arnon Milchan, Joshua Donen, Reese Witherspoon and Cean Chaffin and the executive producers are Leslie Dixon and Bruna Papandrea. The music is by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

Focus Features To DISTRIBUTE "A LITTLE CHAOS"

FOCUS FEATURES TAKES NORTH AMERICAN DISTRIBUTION RIGHTS TO LIONSGATE UK PRODUCTION A LITTLE CHAOS.

Studio Will Release Romantic Drama on March 27, 2015

Focus Features has acquired North American distribution rights to A LITTLE CHAOS, directed by Alan Rickman from a screenplay he wrote with Alison Deegan and Jeremy Brock. The company also acquired distribution rights to the film, which is financed by Lionsgate UK and BBC Films, in Scandinavia. The romantic drama stars Academy Award® winner Kate Winslet, Matthias Schoenaerts, Mr. Rickman, Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci, and Danny Webb. Focus Features will release the movie in North America on March 27, 2015.

A LITTLE CHAOS had its world premiere as the closing-night film of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The project is produced by Gail Egan and Andrea Calderwood via their Potboiler Productions banner, and Bertrand Faivre via The Bureau production banner. Executive Producers of the project are Zygi Kamasa, Guy Avshalom, Nick Manzi, Christine Langan, Ray Cooper, Norman Merry, and Richard Wolfe.

Peter Schlessel, CEO of Focus Features, said, “We are pleased to be in business with Alan Rickman and this sterling cast on such a crowd-pleasing movie. A LITTLE CHAOS is a great addition to Focus Features’ 2015 slate.”

Zygi Kamasa, CEO of Lionsgate UK‎ commented, “We're delighted to be in partnership with Focus Features. They are the perfect home to give this beautiful drama the attention it needs in the US and Canada.”

Director Alan Rickman added “I’m very proud of the fact that A LITTLE CHAOS found its North American home during its World Premiere at TIFF. It’s encouraging to see that the film resonated with both audiences and the industry in Toronto, and I'm excited for its release next spring."

A LITTLE CHAOS follows Sabine (Winslet), a strong-willed landscape designer who challenges sexual and class barriers when she is chosen to build one of the main gardens at King Louis XIV’s new palace at Versailles, causing her to become professionally and romantically entangled with the court’s renowned landscape architect André Le Notre (Schoenaerts).

A LITTLE CHAOS is the third time in recent years that the UK division of Lionsgate has financed a British production from its UK base and sold North America rights during TIFF. SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN was sold to CBS in 2011, THE RAILWAY MAN was sold to The Weinstein Company in 2013, and now A LITTLE CHAOS to Focus Features. All deals were concluded during the festival.

The acquisition of A LITTLE CHAOS was negotiated on behalf of Focus Features by Lia Buman, President of Acquisitions, and Beth Lemberger, Executive Vice President of Business Affairs. CAA

brokered the deal on behalf of Lionsgate UK and Potboiler Productions. Lionsgate International is handling foreign sales of the film. Lionsgate UK will release the film in the UK during the first quarter of 2015.

David Fincher Talks Star Wars: Episode VII

J.J. Abrams is the man responsible for bringing Star Wars back to cinematic life, but there was a time where that might not have been the case. Director David Fincher has revealed that he was, at one point, talking to Lucasfilm about directing Star Wars: Episode VII.

”I talked to [Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy] about it, but I think that it’s a different thing from... I don’t know what Disney-Lucasfilm will be like,” the Gone Girl director told Total Film in a recent interview. “It’s tricky… My favorite is The Empire Strikes Back. If I said, 'I want to do something more like that,' then I'm sure the people paying for it would be like, 'No! You can't do that! We want it like the other one with all the creatures!’”

He went on to say that he saw Star Wars as “the story of two slaves [C-3PO and R2-D2] who go from owner to owner, witnessing their masters' folly, the ultimate folly of man… I thought it was an interesting idea in the first two, but it's kind of gone by Return Of The Jedi.”

While that might be a surprising take on the first couple of Star Wars movies, Fincher is certainly someone who would know about Return of the Jedi; Fincher worked on the movie as an assistant cameraman, back in the day.

While Fincher may not be attached to the Disney franchise now — although, with a number of spin-off movies planned, that could easily change in the future — his comments do serve some purpose for the Star Wars faithful. No matter how good Episode VII ends up being, there will now always be a sub-section of fans who will passionately argue that it’s not as good as if Fincher had directed.

TV Recap: OUTLANDER "BOTH SIDES NOW"


TV Recap: OUTLANDER "BOTH SIDES NOW"
By: Suepafly

The phone rings at the Inverness Police Department. The normal investigations are going on, but today is different, so much so the constable needs a drink. He has to meet with Frank, and there are still no findings of Claire. He had low expectations on the department, and they've lived up to those, finding nothing, but there is nothing to find. Claire remains missing, and Frank distraught over her missing. With no body, no blood, no signs of a struggle, the police department thinks its most likely that she left of her own free will, and that the highlander that he spotted the night before is probably her lover that she ran off with. Frank does not believe that she's with another man.

But Claire is with Jamie at the moment, and he's got an awkward question for her. He asks if it's usual as it is between the two of them when they touch, when they're together. Claire admits that it isn't, that its unusual, which brings a smile to his face. A arrow interrupts their hilltop picnic. Jamie tells Claire to lie down while he investigates, and friends that it was friendly fire. Jamie happily introduces his wife to his old friend, Monroe, who speaks in mostly gestures, after he lost his tongue. He gifts Claire a dragonfly in amber. Jamie tells Claire Monroe's sad story, and then he gives Jamie the latest news, and meeting location for Horrocks. There's a chance that Jamie can remove the price from his head, a witness, but Jamie isn't sure he can trust him. With the slight chance that he can go home with his bride, he cannot give up the chance. Claire embraces Jamie, and on each of her ring fingers she wears a wedding band. Jamie's on the left, and Franks on her right.



The police weren't open to Frank's theory that Claire could have been swept down river, and is hiding out in the wildreness. It's plausible, but still a long shot.Frank looks over Claire's missing poster, and the stones of Craig na Dun. He heads out for something stronger than tea. As he sits in a pub "Sally" sits down next to an intoxicated Frank. He asks what he can do for her, but its what she can do for him. She shares with him a wanted poster, and gives him a cryptic location to bring the reward. She isn't sure if Claire is with him, only that he must come.

Rupert tells the story of the water horse's wife around the fireplace. Claire and Jamie get cozy, talking about Christmas. The horses are restless, which catches Jamie's attention. The men are all edge, and Jamie hands Claire a dagger, before sending her off right at the men attack the robbers. A bloody sword fight begins, but soon they run off. A horse and a few bags of grain is all they ran off with. The men have a chuckle.

Frank meets with Sally, right on time. She leads him back into an alley and backs away. A pair of men attack him, but Frank wasn't just twiddling his thumbs during the war. He takes down the two men, and Sally screams for him to stop. He chokes Sally until she finally confesses that there is no highlander.

Frank talks with the reverend about good and evil, how Frank was slowly descending down a dark path. He suggested that Frank should leave Inverness, put Claire behind him as she has. He asks if the reverend thinks that Claire left him too, and however improbable, all signs point that way, and it must be true.

Claire gets a lesson in dagger throwing from Rupert. Jamie takes over. The blade is too large for claire, and Dougal points out that she needs a hidden dagger. Angus has a small blade that would be perfect for her, and gives her a further lesson showing her the best places to stab a man to inflict the most damage. Claire is a quick learner.

Frank packs his things, preparing to leave. He spies Claire's suitcase, and opens it. Inside is all her belongings, and a frame of the two of them.

Jamie and Claire take a roll in the grass. The pair tear at each other's clothes and make love. It's all sweetness, as he tells Claire that it feels like heaven inside of her, to which she laughs. Jamie takes a more punishing rhythm in jest, when they're rudely interrupted by a pair of red coats. They pull Jamie from his bride, and one prepares to rape Claire while the other forces Jamie to watch. Claire puts her training to good use and kills her attacker, giving Jamie the opportunity to kill the other. He lifts her from the scene and carries her off.

The housekeeper will keep quiet no longer, even though the reverend doesn't want to give Frank false hope. The house is small, and Frank hears. She tells Frank there are stories about the stones, very old ones, stories where people travel through the stones. The stones are in a focusing circle, and for certain people on certain days it allows them to travel through time. They know Claire went to the stones, and its her belief that Claire traveled someplace in time. Frank asks when and where it would be. She isn't sure, ever travel is different, every soul has its own path, but that the songs do say that the travelers often return. Frank makes the decision to leave anyways, he doesn't believe.

Bloodied, Jamie apologizes to Claire. He should have never taken her out there he tells her. He blamed himself for what happened to her. Her hands shook, and she was going into shock. She knew Jamie was worried about her, wanted to talk about what happened, but Claire wasn't ready to let everything pour out of the dammed wall she built. The Clan looks over the slain men. Dougal doesn't want Jamie meeting with Horrocks. He'd be a deserter like the men who attacked them, and honorless, likely setting a trap. Murtaugh thinks if Jamie is set on meeting Horrocks, that he shouldn't do it alone.

Frank takes one last look at the room he shared with Claire, leaving her suitcase behind.

Claire rode in silence, anger filling her. The group stops. Jamie prepares to leave Claire behind, unwilling to risk her again, but she doesn't want to stay. She proved that she could take care of herself, but still he couldn't risk it. He promises to come back for her, and she angrily tells him not to make promises he cannot keep. He will keep this one, and he makes her promise to stay put. Claire realizes that her anger has nothing to do with Jamie, but herself. She's angry that she forgot her own promise to return to the stones of Craig na Dun, to return to her own time, to her husband Frank.

Frank drives away, as he passes the road to Craig na Dun he pauses seeing the rocks on the hill. He backs up and takes the road up.

Claire stares off into the forrest as her watcher goes to takes some business. She wanders, trying to avoid thinking of the meadow, but she couldn't. As she walked she suddenly spotted Craig na Dun. She was so distracted she didn't even realize that she was on the same road. When she first went there she was Claire Randall, then Claire Beecham, now Claire Frasier, but she had to ask herself who she wanted to be. Without hesitating, Claire heads to the stones.

Frank has made his way to the stones in his own time, look around them. He faces the one that took Claire away, beginning to weep. He calls to Claire, and she hears him, telling him to wait for her. He hears her reply, and she runs forward, her hands inches from the stones, but she's captured. Redcoats drag her away, and Frank leaves broken. The soldiers drag her to a covered wagon, and Frank walks alone from the stones.

They're headed to Fort Williams, the same place that Jamie was flogged. Claire had time to plot, hoping it would be enough as they headed to Black Jack's stronghold. Black Jack greets her with wine, uncaring if she considers herself an Englishwoman, or a Scots now. It doesn't matter to him. He notices that she wears both wedding ring, but doesn't buy her sentimental explanation. He's more curious why Dougal would adopt her into his clan rather than hand her over to him for questioning. Claire isn't sure what he's talking about. The pair toast to the king, and he's surprised she still toasts him, and she tells him that even as a Scot, they share a king. The two share some jarring banter. He pulls his chair closer, behind her, explaining her position. He fully intends to find out her true nature and all her secrets by any means necessary. She tells him that he should ask the Duke and Sandun, and he sputters wine out in shock. Score one for Claire. She got that little tidbit from Frank and the reverend as they had speculated how Black Jack was able to get away with his various crimes. Black Jack struggles with his neck cloth, asking what he knows of the Duke. Claire tells him that it should be obvious by now that they're both employed by the same man. He doesn't think believe her, and threatens to write a letter to the Duke for clarification. Claire helps him with his neckcloth, telling him the folly of his plans, how uncovering her identity could prove disastrous for him as well. It was all going too well, but as she goes to leave he asks about the Duchess. Claire says she has never met the Duchess but they're in contact. There is no Duchess, and no escape from the room with a guard outside the door. The guarding Corporal ushers Claire back into the room, as Black Jack orders him to not come back into the room no matter what he hears as he ties up Claire's hands. She begins to scream fro help, but no help is coming. He wants to begin with her name them what she knows about Dougal, then everything down tot he Duke. He cuts open her bodice, throwing up her skirts. He pulls her dagger from her boot. Before he can do any damage, Jamie throws open the window, musket drawn telling Black Jack to take his hands off his wife.

And that ends the first half of the season! What a cliffhanger to leave off on and it's a long wait until the Midseason Premiere on Saturday, April 4, 2015.

TV Recap: DOCTOR WHO "THE CARETAKER"

TV Recap: DOCTOR WHO "THE CARETAKER" 
By: Suepafly

Clara is struggling to juggle both lives, as the Doctor's companion and as a school teacher dating Danny Pink. One day, the Doctor tells Clara that she cannot accompany him on his next trip, as he will be going deep undercover. When Clara heads to work, Danny asks if she is doing alright, as she always seems to be in a hurry when she sees him. The students also seem to be aware of her relationship with Danny. In the staff room of Coal Hill School, the headmaster announces that the caretaker is ill and that they will have a temporary replacement. He enters, and it's the Doctor, using the alias John Smith.

Clara confronts the Doctor, asking him what he is up to. The Doctor says that he has merely hypnotised the caretaker into thinking he's sick and will be back soon enough. Clara believes there are aliens in the school but the Doctor will not tell her, saying there is an alien, himself. She then asks if the kids are safe and the Doctor says they will be once he is done.

A cop follows an unidentified noise coming from an abandoned building, believing it to be a truant student or some other trouble-maker. He is then vaporised by the source of the noise, a Skovox Blitzer.



The Doctor meets Danny later while laying groundwork on the school, learning he was a soldier but finds himself unable to retain the information of Danny being a maths teacher, not a P.E. teacher. The Doctor also assumes that the teacher Clara is seeing is Adrian, who bears some resemblance to the 11th reincarnation of himself. The Doctor and his Tardis is discovered by one of the students who remains un-phased by his being seen.

The Doctor shows Clara his scanner, on which there is a Skovox Blitzer, a deadly killing machine. He says it is in hiding, and could destroy the whole planet, but he plans to displace it a billion years into the future, where it cannot do any harm. Clara offers to help but the Doctor insists he doesn't need her. He encourages her to go home and canoodle with her boyfriend, expressing his approval, but the conversation carries out without them realising they're referring to entirely different people.

Late that night, Danny is still working at the school. Clara comes to see the Doctor to offer some help again but cannot find him. Danny has discovered some of the Doctor's devices and changes some of the settings while messing with it. The Doctor has lured the Skovox Blitzer to the school and is wandering around invisible with the help of one of his devices. Danny comes to confront the Doctor about his suspicious behaviour and interrupts them. The Doctor's machine activates and now the Skovox Blitzer is transported.

Clara comes in and expresses concern for Danny's safety and asks the Doctor if his plan has worked and if the creature is gone. He tells her that the vortex will reopen in 74 hours and the Skovox Blitzer kill him on sight. Danny is shocked at Clara's conversation with the Doctor and assumes that she is a alien and the Doctor is her father. She tries to claim that they're simply rehearsing for a play but is forced to tell him the truth. The Doctor is annoyed that Danny is the one she is in a relationship with but Clara says that she loves Danny. They show Danny the Tardis and the Doctor berates Danny for suggesting they call the army, which would only make the Skovox Blitzer react with more deadly force. Clara helps Danny out and the Doctor tells her on the way out that she will have to explain Danny to him now that she has explained him to Danny. The Doctor has a disdain for soldiers so this won't be easy.

Danny asks Clara in private why she goes flying off in a box with the Doctor. She says it is because it's amazing and she is able to see wonders when doing so. Danny is hurt that she has kept secrets from him. Clara wants to know how to fix this but Danny wants to know who she is. Clara goes to make up with the Doctor but things become more tense when Danny comes in and argues with the Doctor. After Clara and Danny leave, the student the Doctor had previously argued with, Courtney Woods, talks with him. The Doctor shows her a glimpse of the Tardis inside, telling her exactly what it is. She asks if she can go up in space with him but he says not right now, but perhaps when there is a vacancy.

The vortex is opening early so Clara and Danny run out to ask the Doctor what they should do. He tasks them with assignments: Clara is a decoy and Danny needs to leave them alone. The Skovox is chasing Clara, who is running towards the Tardis. The Skovox is firing and the Doctor is able to communicate disguised as its supervisor, telling it to shut down. It works partially but the Doctor forgets the last piece of code. Danny arrives and distracts it, doing a brilliant acrobatic flip over its head, and the Doctor is able to give the last piece of code to prevent the Skovox from self-destructing.

Danny and the Doctor reach an understanding, as Danny tells Clara that the reason why the Doctor has been angry is that he isn't sure if Danny is good enough for Clara. They all agree that helping to save the world is a good start. The Doctor later takes Courtney Woods up into space, but she gets sick in the Tardis. He has also sent the Skovox into space, away form all lifeforms.

Danny tells Clara that he has met men like the Doctor, who push others to their limits so they can see what they're capable of. Now he has pushed Clara to act without fear. Danny tells Clara to tell him if the Doctor ever pushes her too far, because he wants to help her. If she doesn't, they'll be finished, because he needs to know that he can help her.

The police officer from earlier is shown to be waking up in the Promised Land. He is speaking with an interviewer and doesn't remember how he got there. He demands to to know where he is and is shocked upon looking outside. Missy walks by briefly but the interviewer tells the man that she is busy right now.

Shatner Confirms Star Trek 3 Rumor

Though we’re fairly certain all involved would prefer that word didn't leak, rumors sprang up last week that Roberto Orci, J.J. Abrams and the Star Trek 3 team were working on a way to squeeze William Shatner into the new film. Now, speaking at the Wizard World Nashville convention event, Shatner has confirmed that he’s spoken to Abrams about the idea.

According to The Shat, Abrams called him from London with word of a potential way to fit Shatner’s Captain Kirk into the new movie, in much in the same way that Leonard Nimoy’s Spock has appeared in both the recent rebooted films. And Shatner’s response? “It depends on what you do with the character, but I would be delighted.”

This is, of course, by no means a done deal yet. Shatner would have to approve the plan and, given that it was supposed to be kept quiet (the actor didn’t even tell his wife, but someone got wind of it), Abrams may decide that it shouldn’t now happen. Shatner remains hopeful, even if he can’t quite conceive of how to make it work in the story. “How do you get me fifty years later into the movie? I mean how do you rationalize it. I know it’s science fiction, but even I couldn’t come up with an idea. So that’s the news on that.”

Though nothing has been 100% announced on the matter, Orci is currently assumed to be directing Star Trek 3 from a script he’s worked on with John D. Payne and Patrick McKay. Paramount wants the Enterprise flying again in 2016, in time for the original series’ 50th anniversary.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre: 40th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Review. Definitive Version To Grab

Blu-ray Review: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre: 40th Anniversary Collector’s Edition
By: Brandon Wolfe

The title of ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ is so bluntly evocative that people who have never seen the film have generally assumed the worst of it. The title conjures up images of horrific brutality and graphic gore, and that’s before you add the element of cannibalism into the mix. Yet, truth be told, ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ isn’t gory, or even especially bloody, at all, nor is does it depict any grisly displays of cannibalism. By the standards of today’s horror, the film is actually fairly tame. Despite the mental imagery ascribed to the film by reputation, this is not a stomach-churning endurance test.

And yet, it kind of is. While ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ doesn’t saturate us with viscera, it remains, forty years later, one of cinema’s most unsettling pieces of work. From its ominous opening voiceover (gravely intoned by John Larroquette) fallaciously affirming the tale’s true-life roots (a device that would become commonplace in horror movies in the decades ahead), followed by murky glimpses of a grave-robbing in progress, the iconically haunting camera flashbulb sound effects, and then, finally, a slow pullback on a decaying corpse mounted upon a gravesite while a news reporter’s voice fills us in on the background details of the horrors we are witnessing. ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ has barely even begun yet and it’s already seared its way into our minds.

The story follows young Sally Hardesty (Marilyn Burns), her obnoxious, paraplegic brother Franklin (Paul A. Partain) and a vanful of friends as they head into the backroads of Nowhere, Texas to inspect the grave of the Hardestys’ grandfather in light of the recent vandalism reports. Along the way, they pick up a manic hitchhiker, who cuts himself open with a pocket knife for the sheer pleasure of it before being ejected from the vehicle. As they continue ahead, they stop at a local gas station to refuel, only to be told by the folksy owner that the tanks are empty.

The group decides to visit an old house once belonging to the Hardesty family. Some of the friends peel off to find a rumored swimming hole and end up finding an old house instead. Entering to request some gas from the owners, they instead find a hulking butcher with a mask made of skin who bludgeons one teenager with a mallet and hangs another alive on a meat hook. This is Leatherface, and the capper to his introductory scene - his ominous, angry slamming of the steel door to his slaughterhouse - still has the power to send a chill through you.

Eventually Sally is the last teen standing and enters a waking nightmare. After finding all of her friends dead, she is pursued for what feels like an eternity by a chainsaw-wielding Leatherface, who always seems to be about two centimeters behind her. She seeks sanctity at the gas station, only to find that the owner, who initially seems to be her kindly salvation, counts Leatherface among his kin and brings Sally back to the house from which she just frantically escaped. If this weren’t bad enough, the hitchhiker, also a relative, emerges onto the scene. And what follows is what can only be considered a filmed fever dream, as Sally is taken to the dinner table, surrounded by the family, and is offered up to the decrepit grandfather for slaughter. Sally’s ceaseless screams, running continuously for minutes on end, make you feel like you’re going insane as you watch her plight. It still stands as one of the most purely unnerving sequences ever put to film.

‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ rightly has a place as one of the true classics of American horror. Though it spawned a number of lousy sequels and reboot attempts (not to mention the shoddy wave of myriad imitators it inspired over the decades; basically every slasher movie made since owes at least some debt to it), nothing has diminished its raw, uncompromising power.

To mark the film’s 40th anniversary, Dark Sky Films has put out a colossal four-disc collector’s edition Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack with enough meaty extras to fill a freezer. Present here are a whopping four commentary tracks, including one featuring director Tobe Hooper, Leatherface himself Gunnar Hansen and cinematographer Daniel Pearl, and another bringing us the late Marilyn Burns, Partain, and production designer Robert Burns. The set also offers the informative feature-length documentary ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Shocking Truth’; in-depth interviews with production manager Ron Bozman, Grandpa portrayer John Dugan and editor J. Larry Carroll; ‘Flesh Wounds: Seven Stories of the Saw,’ a behind-the-scenes look at the ‘Chain Saw’ phenomenon; and trailers, deleted scenes, outtakes and much, much more. In addition, though the movie has a naturally grungy, almost snuff-film quality, the transfer here looks quite nice. For any fan of this horror classic, this is the definitive version to grab.

First Look At The Chrome Trooper From Episode VII

indierevolver sources have provided them with a second concept image of the new Chrome Trooper.

For months, there have been reports of chromed stormtroopers in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, but those closest to the production have been extremely tight-lipped in regards to this new variant. We’re finally seeing our first glimpses of this new armor’s look:

It’s refreshing to see that he’s not simply a shiny black metal version of the standard-issue Episode VII Stormtrooper. While the overall contours are again in line with the classic design, this helmet has clearly evolved on a different path.




Rather than squared tubes along the cheeks, the bottom of this helmet flares out into a fairly sharp-edged arc. Where those contours end at the front of the helmet, there does not appear to be an aerator or vent on either side.

Once again, we see the appearance of a connected band across the eyes. This is a complex shape, flaring downward at the cheeks and back up towards the temples at the ends.

There’s a seam edge similar to the Episode VII TIE pilots and Forest/Snowtroopers along the mouth. If any of these faceplates are actually removed in the film, it will be interesting to see if they are a window to the character’s face or an access panel for maintenance.

Fans of the original trilogy trooper design will be glad to see that this helmet appears to retain the classic proportions. It’s wide, where the new white troopers have a surprisingly narrow face when seen from the front (in line with Ralph McQuarrie’s design sketches for ANH). The chrome trooper also includes the classic stormtrooper frown instead of a floating nose plate.

The chrome troopers do not actually wear a hood or covering in the film. The metal collar stands up from the torso armor and curves up on the sides before dipping down again at the back.

We’ll never post rumors as genuine news or fact here, but we love nothing more than to speculate with you! Let’s take a few leaps and try to guess how this guy may fit in: A couple sources have expressed that the chrome troopers are a private security force for Adam Driver’s character – silver mercenary rent-a-cops rather than true Imperial Forces for Adam Driver’s character. While we’ve not heard this from anyone directly, the most abundant rumor about Driver is that he’s a wealthy aristocrat with an interest in Sith artifacts. While this production seems eager to distance themselves from the prequel era, of all the films’ props this design shares DNA most closely with the Naboo ships. The chrome finish and elegant curves fit in with that established aesthetic perfectly. Might JJ try to make lemonade out of lemons with Padme’s home planet? Could our Sith-obsessed aristocrat hail from the same planet/society as Vader’s wife? Or is this just a natural result of bringing the prequels’ Doug Chiang back as production designer lead concept artist (Thanks for the correction, Matthew Palanca!) ?

Fantastic Four Reboot Details On Johnny Storm & Sue Storm

One of the most interesting films set to come out next year is the new Fantastic Four reboot with Josh Trank directing and a main cast filled with some of the better up and coming actors working today. There isn’t really a lot known about the film yet, with only rumors and some set photos leaking online the past few months and Trank making a few statements about the tone the film will have. I’m really excited for it honestly, and with the talent involved, I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being one of the best and most interesting superhero films we end up getting.

Schmoes Know got our hands on some new interesting plot details for the film from a very reliable source! First, remember all of the controversy that happened when Michael B. Jordan was announced to be cast as Johnny Storm in the film? For those of you that don’t know, in the comic books Johnny Storm and Sue Storm are brother and sister, and since Sue Storm is being played by Kate Mara in the film, people were worried and curious if they were still going to be siblings in this new reboot. The general thought among the fan community eventually became that Johnny would simply be adopted and they would still be brother and sister, just not biologically.

Well, we have heard from our source that it is actually Mara’s Sue Storm who is adopted in the film, with her and Michael B. Jordan’s parents being African American! (So it’s still basically what we have all assumed about their relationship, only the film has flipped it around.) We have also heard that instead of the group gaining their powers from a failed scientific mission in outer space like in the original comics and (awful) existing films, this time the group’s origin story will be much more like their Ultimate versions.

In the film, the team will gain their powers through a lab experiment gone wrong in a way, where they create a portal to another world or dimension (its not clear) and they get their powers after the exposure to this other dimension/planet. Much like how the group gets their powers in the Ultimate Fantastic Four comics, after they are engulfed in a failed teleporter experiment.

This definitely makes sense with what the film’s screenwriter, Simon Kinberg has been saying about the film being much more scientific than the previous adaptations and some of the comics. So from both the new cast’s ages and how they get their powers in the film, it seems like this reboot is going to be following the Ultimate run of the comic books much more than the original run.

The other small tidbit of news that we have is that the film is going to be VERY character-driven. I don’t want to say that the action in the film takes a backseat or is secondary, but this first installment is much more focused on setting up the characters and their relationships with each other and their nemesis Victor von Doom (Toby Kebbell) than it is about making things blow up in big action set pieces. Which I love! The reason Trank’s earlier film, Chronicle, was so good was because it focused so heavily on it’s characters and you felt emotion towards them, so this definitely makes me happy.

Guardians Of The Galaxy On Blu-ray December 9th

Marvel's runaway smash hit, Guardians of the Galaxy, grossed over $314M domestic and $633M worldwide making it the highest grossing domestic film of the year and the 7th highest grossing film worldwide. The film, which was perceived as a risk initially, also managed to win over both critics and fans putting another tick in the win column for Marvel.



Even though Marvel has yet to make an official announcement, Amazon has made the film available for pre-order in three editions: a standard one-disc 2D Blu-ray, a two-disc 3D Blu-ray combo, and a one-disc DVD. The film is also expected to arrive on a Best Buy Exclusive Steelbook, similiar to Captain America: The Winter Soldier & Thor: The Dark World.

“Rogue Cut” Of “Days Of Future Past” Coming In 2015

Anna Paquin’s scenes as Rogue that were cut from “X-Men: Days of Future Past” will be added back to the film and re-released as the “Rogue Cut” next summer on homevideo platforms.

The extended version of “Days of Future Past” will become available in the first half of 2015, most likely during the summer, according to the film’s writer and producer Simon Kinberg, who made the announcement Thursday from Stage 21, where scenes for the previous “X-Men” installment, “First Class” were filmed on the Twentieth Century Fox studio lot. Kinberg, who also worked on that film, was back on the lot to promote the theatrical version of “Days of Future Past,” available now on digital and on Oct. 14 on DVD and Blu-ray.

More than 10 minutes of extra footage will be added to the “Rogue Cut” of “Days of Future Past,” which in addition to Paquin’s cut scenes, will also include other sequences involving other characters, as well.

“It’s a big chunk, a substantial part of the movie,” Kinberg said of Paquin’s storyline as Rogue. “We want to give (fans) the fullest picture of the film — behind the camera, and in front of it,” with the “Rogue Cut” and provide “more of the process we went through” to make the film.

“Every movie has scenes that are cut out, but not every movie has scenes cut out with such a beloved character,” Kinberg added.

Paquin played Rogue in “X-Men,” “X-Men 2″ and “X-Men: The Last Stand.” She does still appear in “Days of Future Past” but in a smaller cameo.

Paquin’s scenes didn’t make the final cut because the film was “full of plots and subplots.” Her storyline as Rogue just “didn’t fit” with the final film, which Kinberg said was always designed to revolve around Charles Xavier, played by James McAvoy.

“It’s the most complicated movie I’ve ever worked on,” Kinberg said, because of the film’s time traveling focus that unites the X-Men characters from the first trilogy, directed by Bryan Singer, and younger ones from Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class,” while introducing even more like Quicksilver.

“I pray to God I never work on another time travel movie,” Kinberg said.

Kinberg is currently writing the next “X-Men” film, “Apocalypse,” which Singer will return to direct the film that’s set during the 1980s. “Days of Future Past” was set during the 1970s.

The return to the Fox lot on Thursday, “is the first time I’ve been out of the house in awhile,” he said, given his scripting duties on “Apocalypse.”
