The 15 Best Horror Directors of the 21st Century

The 15 Best Horror Directors of the 21st Century
“It” may be a box office smash, but it’s hardly the only horror movie worth talking about these days. Just 17 years in, and the 21st century has already played home to a remarkable number of truly chilling and inventive horror offerings, from a resurgence in J-horror remakes to a continued affection for the classic series of yesteryear, to the massive dominance of the “Conjuring” movie universe and even a “Saw” franchise so dominant that it’s already cycled back into resurrection territory, and that’s just the mainstream stuff.

Aided by a new crop of filmmakers beholden to both their own obsessions and formative years steeped in the classics, the past two decades are shaping up to be some of the very best for the genre, with still more terror being turned out at a frightening clip. From visionaries like Guillermo del Toro and Gore Verbinksi, who can happily

Doctor Who Season 10 Blu-Ray To Include Tons Of Juicy Extras

There’s been much to enjoy from Doctor Who‘s last few seasons – Peter Capaldi, Michelle Gomez, the odd standout episode here and there – but ultimately, it’s been a bit scattershot in quality. It took a while for the Twelfth Doctor’s era to find itself, which meant it lacked the cohesive quality of David Tennant and Matt Smith’s eras. Seasons 8 and 9 were enjoyable TV, don’t get us wrong, but not up to the expected quality of the show.

With season 10, though, Doctor Who finally got its groove back. It seems that, as this was the final run for both Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat, they decided to go all out in making it a year to remember. Due to the erratic scheduling of the Capaldi era – there was no season at all in 2016 – season 10 was hands down the best run of the show in a good long time.

‘Blade Runner 2049’: Where You’ve Seen Its Standout Supporting Cast Before
The following article contains minor spoilers for “Blade Runner 2049.”

In addition to a pair of memorable performances from Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, cinematographer Roger Deakins’ stunning visual work, and director Denis Villeneuve’s dystopian vision, “Blade Runner 2049” has one more element worthy of excitement: a supporting cast of new and rising stars. Many of them have already made their mark on indie cinema, like the perpetually working David Dastmalchian or the irreverent Carla Juri, while others will likely use Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic as a springboard for even bigger careers (like Ana de Armas, the film’s biggest find).

Meet Ana de Armas, the Actress Who's Quickly Rising Through the Hollywood Ranks
Ana de Armas is wasting no time making her mark on Hollywood, and you'd be smart to keep an eye on her.

‘Blade Runner 2049′ Review

Stars: Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Harrison Ford, Jared Leto, Robin Wright | Written by Hampton Fancher, Michael Green | Directed by Denis Villenueve

Films like this make me glad I don’t need to give a star rating. Because films like Blade Runner 2049 – and there aren’t many of them – take time to absorb, to fully comprehend. It’s a most unlikely mega-budget blockbuster: slow and long and extravagantly cerebral; the absolute antidote to YouTube instant reaction culture. Give me another 35 years and I might have finally made up my mind.

Where the 2019-set Blade Runner was a hardboiled noir in future-gothic clothing, Blade Runner 2049, its direct sequel, is an exacting detective procedural sketched on a desolate canvas. Except both those descriptions are hopelessly reductive, which is precisely what makes both films stand out amongst their peers. There’s so much going on here, so mesmerising in its execution,

What You Need to Know About Ryan Gosling's Blade Runner Love Interest, Ana de Armas

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: Everett Collection The long-awaited sequel to 1982's Blade Runner officially hits theaters on Oct. 6, and we could not be any more excited. Not only does Blade Runner 2049's storyline take place three decades after the events of the first film, but it also stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Jared Leto, Robin Wright, and rising star Ana de Armas. Armas stars as Joi, Gosling's (Lapd Officer K) love interest, and while Blade Runner 2049 may be her first major movie role, the 29-year-old Cuban actress has actually been busy building her résumé since 2006. Armas has starred in a handful of Spanish TV shows and appeared in a number of films like Knock Knock, Hands of Stone, and War Dogs. In fact, that's one of the main reasons producers Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson cast her in the film. "We think Ana is one of the most exciting, up-and-coming

‘Do It Like an Hombre’ Is Mexico’s Highest-Grossing Local Film of the Year

‘Do It Like an Hombre’ Is Mexico’s Highest-Grossing Local Film of the Year
Some new Mexican box office history has been made as the comedy “Do it Like an Hombre” followed its 68.7 million Mexican pesos ($3.89 million) opening weekend with a two weekend total of $130.3 million pesos ($7.4 million), giving it the highest Mexican movie box office total of 2017, according to comScore.

In its first weekend, including a Thursday first-day bow, the film was the country’s second-highest Mexican release ever after the 2013 smash-hit “Instructions Not Included,” which holds the top spot, though off a Thursday rather than Friday opening. 2016’s “Que Culpe Tiene el Nino”? earned a three-day 65.6 million pesos ($3.7 million), according to comScore.

The recent success of local hits in Mexico has helped in recent years to justify a massive growth in the number of theaters across the country. It may also suggest a shift away from the near absolute choke-hold that Hollywood blockbusters, especially animated movies, have held on the region’s box offices for years. At

Nicolas Lopez’s ‘Do It Like an Hombre’ Smashes 2017 Mexican Movie Records

Nicolas Lopez’s ‘Do It Like an Hombre’ Smashes 2017 Mexican Movie Records
Having directed Chilean smash hit “Sin Filtro,” Nicolás Lopez looks like he has done it again. But in a far bigger market than his native Chile and with a Spanish-language comedy which, distributed by Pantelion and starring Mauricio Ochmann (“El Chema”) and Aislinn Derbez (“Win It All”), has U.S. potential.

Bowing Aug.10 in Mexico, Lopez’s first Mexican movie as a director, “Hazlo como Hombre” (“Do It Like an Hombre”), which Pantelion releases Sept. 1 in the U.S., opened No. 1 on Thursday, punching $591,537 at the Mexican box office, over double the biggest U.S. bow, “Baby Driver” ($239,565).

That’s also getting on for double the first-day box office trawl for “Que Culpa Tiene el Niño?” – Mexico’s biggest local hit of 2016, which went on to earn $14.4 million in Mexico.

These are just opening night figures. But they do raise the question of how much “Do It Like an Hombre” could gross not just in Mexico but

Death Wish: is the Bruce Willis remake an alt-right fantasy?

The trailer for Eli Roth’s revival of the action franchise has been accused of being ‘nakedly fascist’ in its story of vigilanteism in a volatile Chicago

There is a long and fine tradition of pointing out that Eli Roth’s new films don’t look very good. The cocksure writer, director, producer and sometime actor has spent the last 15 years serving up reliably polarising product from the gloomy, insidious torture-porn of Hostel to the garish sexpot thriller Knock Knock. Roth’s latest and most high-profile project – a long-in-the-works resurrection of the Death Wish franchise with Bruce Willis as the trigger-happy lead – has attracted even sharper criticism than usual. The launch trailer has sustained heavy fire on social media, called out for being “nakedly fascist” and being compared to “alt-right fan fiction”.

Trailer & images from Eli Roth’s ‘Death Wish’

Here’s your first look at Bruce Willis in the MGM/Paramount remake of >Death Wish, which also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Kimberly Elise, Mike Epps, and Elisabeth Shue.

Directed by Eli Roth (Knock Knock, Hostel) from a screenplay by Joe Carnahan, the film follows Paul Kersey (Willis) whose life is destroyed by a violent crime against his wife and daughter. Frustrated the bad guys were not brought to justice for the violence and degradation the thugs inflicted on his family, he starts hunting for the perpetrators himself.

It will be interesting to see how this redux of the 1974 Michael Winner / Charles Bronson film is received when it’s released later this year – especially given how it looks, at least in the trailer below, that the film will also incorporate who the 24 hour news cycle can make celebrity out of notoriety.

‘Death Wish’ First Trailer: Eli Roth and Bruce Willis Resurrect One of Cinema’s Deadliest Killers
Eli Roth hasn’t really had a hit as a director in quite some time. His last two efforts, “Knock Knock” and “The Green Inferno,” came and went from theaters without much fan fare, but that probably won’t be the case for the director’s next movie. Roth is resurrecting “Death Wish,” the film series that started in 1974 and made a movie icon out of Charles Bronson, and he’s getting some help from Bruce Willis.

The actor will be returning to his hard-hitting action roots as Paul Kersey, a mild-mannered father who becomes a stone cold killing machine after his wife is murdered and his daughter is raped and left in a coma. The original “Death Wish” series included four films released between 1974 and 1994, all of which starred Bronson as Kersey. The remake co-stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Dean Norris, Kimberly Elise, and Mike Epps.

The most surprising part about “Death Wish” might just be that it’s being distributed by Annapurna Pictures, the indie powerhouse behind such titles as “Her,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “American Hustle,” and this weekend’s “Detroit.” The movie marks their biggest genre push to date. MGM is handling international distribution.

Death Wish” opens in theaters November 22. Watch the first trailer below.

Blade Runner co-writer reveals original idea of a Cold War setting for the iconic movie.

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher revealed at San Diego Comic Con that a sequel to the 1982 original was on the table as far back as a year after the initial release.

Related: New Blade Runner 2049 Trailer

Speaking with Collider Fancher explained that within a year Ridley Scott and himself were indeed talking about a sequel but unfortunately for us they came up against legal problems which halted a follow-up.

“When we finished the first one, within a year we were talking about a second one. Ridley called, I was in New York and I went out to La, and we batted stories around. Nothing came of it because of legal problems”.

Fancher, who also co-wrote this year’s sequel starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, went on to reveal his vision for the sequel some 35 years ago and it included sending Ford’s Deckard to Moscow

The new trailer for Blade Runner 2049 will blow your mind

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Jon Lyus

We’ve already seen some of the world Denis Villeneuve and Ridley Scott have been building for the follow up to Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic. We’ve seen some very impressive neon-laced cityscapes, a bevy of future-noir couplings, and a very handsome first trailer. Blade Runner 2049 has a lot to live up to – however this new trailer gives us hope that the team are more than up to it.

Harrison Ford and Edward James Olmos are scheduled to return all these years later. Newcomers to the series include our new leading man Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas (Knock Knock), Robin Wright (Wonder Woman), Mackenzie Davis (The Martian) Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2), Lennie James (The Walking Dead) and Suicide Squad’s Joker – Jared Leto.
