FX’s adaptation of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s horror novel The Strain has just added John Hurt to co-lead opposite Corey Stoll and Mia Maestro in the network’s high-profile drama pilot, reports Deadline.
Hurt is the final piece to the puzzle for the show as he’ll portray Professor Abraham Setrakian, a holocaust survivor who immigrated to the U.S. after World War II and now runs a pawn shop in Spanish Harlem. As the outbreak spreads, he may be the only one with answers — if anyone will listen. The Strain was already shaping up quite nicely but now that they’ve landed Hurt to play Setrakian, I think it’s safe to say that we might just have one hell of a show on our hands. Continue reading
While Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster, has been in production for just a few weeks now, we are just now getting word that he has finally pinned an actor for the leading role. Deadline is reporting that Iain DeCaestecker will join alongside Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes, Ben Mendlesohn and Matt Smith in the film. The Scottish actor will play Hendricks’ son, a loner with an active imagination. Continue reading
Back in 2006 we saw a brutal killer born out of the Honey Island Swamp by the name of Victor Crowley. When we were first introduced to this new breed of killer it brought audiences back to a time when slashers ruled the horror genre. Three films later, would Crowley leave a legacy behind he would be proud of? Adam Green passes the torch to BJ McDonnell who makes Hatchet III his directorial debut as it follows a search and recovery team that heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and Marybeth learns the secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.
If you’ve made it this far into the series then you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into. You’re going to get Victor Crowley running around as the unstoppable beast that he is, who literally tears everyone to pieces with his bare hands. And that’s exactly what he does the entire film. Which is great. The problem though, is that it all wears thin pretty quickly when you don’t care a whole lot about the characters. That was the big disappointment with Hatchet II and as you can tell, the latest installment hasn’t learned from its previous mistakes. Instead of giving us a someone to root for, they gave us a cast of people who look good dying and that’s about it. Hell, even our gorgeous hero, Danielle Harris, is hardly used in the film. It seems as though all Hatchet III really cared about was the body count. Continue reading

The newest trailer for Neil Blomkamp’s sci-fi actioneer, Elysium, is pretty beastly as it clocks in at just over 3 minutes in length. We certainly didn’t need 3 full minutes to tell us just how badass this flick was going to be but after watching that I feel like I need to change my pants because holy hell that was cool! The trailer features a ton of new footage with some wicked looking action sequences. Blomkamp’s brilliant eye for the sci-fi genre is on full display here making Elysium easily one of my most anticipated films of the summer. Continue reading
