From Book Reports to ‘Buster’: The Ballad of Tim Blake Nelson

From Book Reports to ‘Buster’: The Ballad of Tim Blake Nelson
Travel hither and yon and it’s probably only once in a great long while that you come across someone like Tim Blake Nelson. Frankly, he doesn’t look all that impressive. Ebbing hairline, a wide-open-plains-type forehead, blues that seem almost beady, a top right central incisor that stands disturbingly aloof of its neighbor, and an oddball horseshoe mustache. He’s lank bordering on gaunt, well abbreviated in height, and the altogether effect is of the kind of guy you see on inner-city street corners, scratching his head while waiting to be mugged.

35 Things You Didn't Know About Stranger Things

Dan Cooper Nov 20, 2018

Inspirations, special effects, a nod to Jaws and what could have been a near fatal accident, we go behind the scenes on Stranger Things...

This story originally appeared on Den of Geek UK.

If like me, you’re a Stranger Things aficionado, you’re probably kicking your heels and mourning not making the annual round trip to Hawkins, Indiana this autumn, as the show takes a year off before season three releases. Upsetting, I know. While you could "do a Joyce" and spend that time howling in anguish at the walls, cursing the fickle and cruel gods of television, ultimately, that’s an inadvisable approach, as you’ll probably just get a sore throat and blame it on us.

Fear not though, because a crumb of comfort is on the way. The official Stranger Things behind-the-scenes companion has just released, courtesy of Penguin Random House, and it

‘Inside Philadelphia’ Podcast Marks 25th Anniversary of Breakthrough Film to Raise Money for AIDS Treatment (Exclusive)

‘Inside Philadelphia’ Podcast Marks 25th Anniversary of Breakthrough Film to Raise Money for AIDS Treatment (Exclusive)
The creators of the “Inside Jaws” podcast are turning their attention to Jonathan Demme’s stigma-shattering “Philadelphia” to mark the 25th anniversary of the Tom Hanks-Denzel Washington drama — and raise money to fight HIV/AIDS worldwide.

The 1993 film helped put a human face on the virus at a time when patients suffered horrific discrimination and ignorance. That is still true in much of the world, and through an arrangement with Coca-Cola, 100 percent of donations made by listeners of the podcast will go to support the (Red) campaign to rid the world of AIDS.

Host Mark Ramsey, who created the podcast with audio designer Jeff Schmidt, told TheWrap that he sought and received the blessing of Hanks, Washington, “Philadelphia” screenwriter Ron Nyswaner, and Joanne Howard, wife of Demme, who died last year at 73.

25 Wild Details Behind The Making Of Paranormal Activity Movies

It seems as if every decade there’s at least one film that completely revolutionizes the horror genre. These films then begin a chain reaction that influences a bunch of similar format movies for many years to come. We saw it first perhaps with Jaws in the 1970s, which prompted a number of shark-related movies to come out. The slasher genre was the ‘It’ thing in the 1980s with Halloween, Nightmare On Elm Street and Friday the 13th furthering this popularity.

In the late-2000s, we had Paranormal Activity. This film exploded the market with talks of it being perhaps the scariest film to ever have been released. The found footage format had been used with The Blair Witch Project but Paranormal Activity’s humble beginnings made it the talk of the town. It capitalized on efficient marketing – among the first films to truly use social media for promotion – and

First Plot Details For Spawn Reboot Tease A Dark Adventure

It’s looking like all the pieces are falling into place for Todd McFarlane’s Spawn. He’s got a great cast, including Jamie Foxx as the supernatural anti-hero and Jeremy Renner as NYPD detective Twitch, an impressive behind the scenes crew including The Walking Dead‘s gore guru Greg Nicotero and an apparently impressive script. The only hurdle he needs to get over is convincing a studio to officially greenlight the film.

Though it’s a relatively low budget affair for a superhero movie, they may be baulking at the prospect of McFarlane taking the director’s seat and the film’s unorthodox approach to its hero. In a decision no doubt made with one eye on the budget, McFarlane’s tactic is to treat the titular character a bit like the shark in Jaws, keeping him off-screen as long as possible in order to build suspense and mystery around him.

The Meg Honest Trailer Declares It the Best Worst Movie of 2018

The Meg has been given the Honest Trailers treatment. There are many shark movies that have ascended beyond the depths of mediocrity over the years and, be it for the right or wrong reasons, they become a part of pop culture. The Meg certainly managed to ascend and become a genuine hit, but is it actually any good? That's what the latest edition of the YouTube series is trying to figure out.

The trailer opens up by going over all of the various categories of shark movies cinema has to offer. There are great shark movies (Jaws), very bad shark movies (Jaws: The Revenge) and shark movies that are probably bad but are great in part because they are bad (Deep Blue Sea). It then makes the point that The Meg toes the line between being the right kind of bad or the bad kind of bad. So which one is it?

AFI Fest Film Review: Sandra Bullock in ‘Bird Box’

AFI Fest Film Review: Sandra Bullock in ‘Bird Box’
When it comes to the movie “Jaws,” there’s a myth so often repeated that hardly anyone stops to question it anymore: The story goes that because Spielberg couldn’t get his giant mechanical shark to work, he was forced to shoot around it, resulting in a more effective film. That’s true up to a point. Sharks are scary, and the mere suggestion of one — coupled with the sight of a giant fin slicing through water, menacing p.o.v. shots, and the most menacing score ever written — is certainly more frightening than the sight of a malfunctioning rubber dummy. But there are countless examples, from Freddy Krueger to the clown from “It,” of horror-movie nightmares that are terrifying precisely because we do see them.

And then there’s “Bird Box,” a not-inexpensive Netflix thriller which pushes things to the other extreme, conjuring some kind of deadly phenomenon the

5 Horror Sequels With Surprisingly Famous Stars

Good news for fans of pint-sized horror – The Boy is getting a sequel. And surprisingly it stars Katie Holmes.

With all due respect to original lead Lauren Cohan, this is heavyweight casting. Cohan gave a strong performance and is world famous through The Walking Dead. But you’d kinda expect things to be the other way around for The Boy 2, right?

There must be something that drew Holmes to the follow-up – guess we’ll find out when it lands. In the meantime here are some other cases of big names who raised eyebrows appearing down the list of a fearsome franchise…

5. Michael Caine – Jaws The Revenge (1987)

Let’s start with one of the most famous pieces of casting in horror history. The great Roy Scheider starred in the first two Jaws movies (reluctantly in the case of the 2nd).

But for some reason, the franchise’s biggest name appeared in Part 4… Michael Caine!

A Quiet Place 2 will be a “unique experience” says John Krasinski

John Krasinski, the director, writer, and star of A Quiet Place, says the sequel will be a “unique experience”.

A Quiet Place has been one of the biggest horror hits of the year, delighting fans with its unique plot and tense set pieces. The film did so well, in fact, that John Krasinski has been tasked with making a sequel.

Krasinski was initially reluctant to come on board for another film but he has told Entertainment Weekley that his unique idea for the sequel has made him excited to bring it to life:

“I actually didn’t want anything to do with a sequel. Not out of any negative aversion but that I thought we had sort of explored something really special and unique. And then I had this very small idea and what it was is that this is a world that you can play in. This isn’t just a character to remake,

Bryan Woods and Scott Beck (‘A Quiet Place’ writers) discuss ‘telling a story about broken communication in a family’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“Our intent is first and foremost just telling a story about broken communication in a family; that’s the centerpiece,” Scott Beck tells Gold Derby about “A Quiet Place” in an exclusive joint interview with his co-writer and fellow executive producer Bryan Woods (watch the video above). “Everybody sees their own experiences with family in the film and that’s perhaps why it connected so widely,” Beck says about the unexpected blockbuster, which was produced for $17 million and originally projected for a domestic box office run of $60 million, but ultimately grossed $188 million out of $339 million worldwide.

SEEwhy “A Quiet Place” deserves a Best Picture nomination.

A Quiet Place” is now in the mix for Oscar nominations, including Best Original Screenplay, which went to fellow horror film “Get Out” last year. Citing that as their favorite film of last year, Woods explains, “As two filmmakers who have loved genre movies forever

The Surprising Inspirations Behind Movie Character Names

Paul Bradshaw Nov 7, 2018

Annoy the wrong director and you could have an ugly cockroach man named after you.

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

It’s not easy naming your movie characters. Do you go boring (James Bond), awesome (Snake Plissken), or just plain stupid? If you’re not picking names out of a phone book, you have to base them on something, or someone, and a surprising number of movie characters have been inspired by real people, pets and places.

Some of them are nice nods (who wouldn’t want their dad to write them into Star Wars?), but most of them definitely aren’t. The best revenge, it seems, is served up on the end credits…

The Eborsisk – Willow
