Army of Darkness

During Comic-Con, the collectible arthouse Mondo unveiled some awesome posters for Guardians of the Galaxy, not to mention announcing their foray into collectible toys with figures for The Iron Giant and more. Now Mondo is back to their regularly scheduled programming (via Badass Digest) with great artwork for two of the most revered cult classic horror films. Evil Dead II is given a stylish poster by Randy Ortiz while Army of Darkness is given two different prints by Tom Whalen and Richey Beckett. Technically there's six posters since each has a variant to go along with it, but if you like Mondo, you know the drill. ›››

Lionsgate's New 'Power Rangers' Movie Set for a July 2016 Release

FirstShowing.net - Wed, 08/13/2014 - 17:25
Power Rangers

Briefly: After just announcing a new feature film version of Power Rangers earlier this summer, Lionsgate has dated the film to hit theaters on July 22nd, 2016. All we know so far is that X-Men: First Class and Thor writers Ashley Miller & Zack Stentz will script the film that will be executive produced by Star Trek and Transformers franchise writer and producer Roberto Orci. Somehow the film will keep the mythology of all the original TV series and films intact, likely by simply following a new group of ordinary high school kids who find themselves infused with extraterrestrial powers and must harness those powers as a team to save the world. We really don't know what to expect from this one. Stay tuned for more. ›››

Look at the Best Behind the Scenes Photo from 'Shaun of the Dead'

Shaun of the Dead

We love going behind the scenes of our favorite movies whether it's with featurettes or pictures taken on set by the cast and crew for fans to enjoy on Twitter and Instagram. Well, way before those channels of social media rules the world, and high quality cameras on phones were a little less prominent, digital cameras were still all the rage. And one awesome picture was taken on the set of Shaun of the Dead, but this is the first time that we've seen the photo. You might be wondering what we could possible see from a film that was released ten years ago this year, but trust me, this new photo is amusingly cool and fun. Look below! ›››

Locarno Review: Disturbing, Riveting Sign Language Film 'The Tribe'

FirstShowing.net - Wed, 08/13/2014 - 16:54
The Tribe

Two of 2014's best art films focus on disabilities - Blind, directed by Eskil Vogt, an exceptional film about a woman going blind that I reviewed from Berlinale; and The Tribe, directed by Miroslav Slaboshpitsky, a brutal but incredible Ukrainian film about a group of deaf students. The Tribe first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in the Critic's Week sidebar, winning multiple awards at the end of that fest. I caught the film at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland - it is disturbing but powerful. The film is presented entirely in sign language, without any subtitles or translation or dialogue. It's the beginning of sign language cinema. ›››

Mark Hamill

The two week hiatus that Lucasfilm announced awhile back is almost done, so it's almost time for Star Wars: Episode VII to resume production with Harrison Ford back up and hobbling around like a pirate. Following the potential tease of Luke Skywalker's robotic hand last week, seen holding J.J. Abrams' handwritten note thanking fans for their support of the Star Wars: Force for Change charity drive, this time it's the Jedi himself teasing production in London. Mark Hamill took some time to pose for a photo that doesn't really offer any hints as to what's in store for Skywalker in the sequel, but it gets us excited. Look! ›››

Watch: Meet the Gladers in New Featurette for 'The Maze Runner'

The Maze Runner

The most recent trailer for the adaptation of the young adult action adventure novel The Maze Runner looked pretty damn impressive, and we're excited to see where this intriguing sci-fi tale ventures, especially after seeing concept art for the hopeful sequel at Comic-Con last month. Now a featurette has surfaced online introducing us to The Gladers, the group of boys (Dylan O'Brien, Will Poulter and more, eventually joined by Kaya Scodelario) who have been stuck in the area called The Glade, trying to figure out if they're any way out of the maze that connects to their grassy home. This is a great young cast who actually camped out in the big wooded set in New Orleans to build up camaraderie before shooting. Watch! ›››
