Peter Jackson Says Harvey Weinstein Told Him to Blacklist Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino

Peter Jackson Says Harvey Weinstein Told Him to Blacklist Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino
Mira Sorvino recently told The Hollywood Reporter that she couldn't say "for certain" that her career was impacted after she refused Harvey Weinstein's advances when she was a young actress on the verge of stardom and about to win a best supporting actress Oscar for Mighty Aphrodite. "I was not offered any movie roles past 1996," she said, wondering just how Weinstein may have retaliated against her. "Radio silence."

Now she knows. 

In a new interview with New Zealand's Stuff, blockbuster director Peter Jackson addressed the Weinstein scandal and said that he was told by Weinstein's company not to hire...

Sounds Like We’re A Bit Closer To Seeing The Original, Unaltered Star Wars Trilogy

The geek world imploded a few weeks back when it was reported that Disney is working on purchasing the bulk of 20th Century Fox. Shortly after this report came out, though, we were told that the whole thing might already be dead in the water, as talks between the two companies had apparently cooled.

Now, however, we’ve learned that we should ignore that second report as the notion has allegedly not yet been thrown out. According to Deadline, the two parties are still very much in discussions and Disney is apparently “progressing speedily toward” the acquisition. As we heard before, the plan is still for Fox to keep their sports and news properties, while the House of Mouse takes everything else in terms of film and TV.

I know you want to talk about the legacies of those exposed in these sexual assault and harassment scandals, but I just

Hide and Seek Gets Twisted in Upcoming Ready Or Not

Fox Searchlight Productions have aquired a new thriller called Ready or Not from Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin two of three members of "Radio Silence", a collective of three filmmakers whose work has been featured in the amazing horror anthologies Southbound and VHS (they did the “10/31/98” segment) .

Ready or Not tells the twisted story of a bride who is forced to play a scary game of "Hide and Seek" with her wealthy new inlaws. I love how weird and high concept horror is getting these days.

Disney and Fox Deal Heats Back Up, Announcement Coming Soon?

It looks like Disney purchasing Fox may be a lot more than just some grandiose industry rumor. Earlier this month, news broke that the Mouse House was looking to buy most of 21st Century Fox. Specifically, everything on the TV and film side of things, save for anything sports and/or news related. That means, they would own 20th Century Fox and Marvel would regain the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four. While it seemed like talks had cooled down a bit, a new report claims that Disney is "speeding toward" a purchase of Fox, behind closed doors. Here's what Deadline has to say about the situation.

"Disney is progressing speedily toward that rumored acquisition of Fox. The version I heard has the Murdoch clan keeping possession of sports and news properties, and the rest of TV and the film studio going to Disney. Radio silence right now from both studios,

Disney and Fox are Back in Talks and a Deal Reportedly is Close to Being Made!

A few weeks ago we learned that Disney Studio was looking to purchase 20th Century Fox. Those talks eventually died down and then it was reported that Sony Pictures was looking to get in on the action. It doesn't seem like things worked out with them or the other companies that were interested in buying up Fox because now, according to Deadline, Disney and Fox are back in talks! There is also speculation that a deal is close to being made.

Disney is progressing speedily toward that rumored acquisition of Fox. The version I heard has the Murdoch clan keeping possession of sports and news properties, and the rest of TV and the film studio going to Disney. Radio silence right now from both studios, and given how Disney made the Marvel and Lucasfilm deals under the cone of silence, if this happens we’ll probably only know it when it’s announced.

The X-Men May Be Joining The McU As Disney Closes In On Fox Acquisition

The geek world imploded a few weeks back when it was reported that Disney is working on purchasing the bulk of 20th Century Fox. Immediately, fans either got excited to see properties such as the X-Men merge with the House of Mouse or bemoaned the unstoppable dominance of Disney. Shortly after this report came out, though, we were told that the whole thing might already be dead in the water, as talks between the two companies had apparently cooled.

Now, however, we’ve learned that we should ignore that second report as the notion has allegedly not yet been thrown out.

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’: Why George Miller Crashed a Real War Rig for the Film’s Most Daring Stunt

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’: Why George Miller Crashed a Real War Rig for the Film’s Most Daring Stunt
Editor’s note: The following is an edited excerpt from “Miller and Max: George Miller and the Making of a Film Legend” by Luke Buckmaster.

The George Miller of the 1970s would never have believed he would one day be spearheading a production with a budget estimated at a staggering $150 million. Miller had made the first three movies when he was in his thirties. At sixty-seven, when “Fury Road” commenced principal photography, those days were far back in the past. Shooting the original film in Melbourne felt like a lifetime ago.

For his first “Mad Max” movie in close to three decades, Miller wanted to be on the frontline at all times. But he soon realized that was impossible given the scale of production: a 138-day shoot with complicated stunts occurring on a near-daily basis. State-of-the-art technology made the job easier — or at least improved communication. High-definition video reception was broadcast in multiple locations,

Fired Espn Tennis Analyst Is a ‘Pariah’ Since Venus Williams ‘Guerrilla’ Backlash, Lawyer Says
Doug Adler, the Espn tennis analyst who was fired after referring to Venus Williams’ “guerrilla” style of playing at the Australian Open this year, is currently on the mend after suffering a massive heart attack — an attack that at least one of his doctors has attributed to his firing, and from the accusations of racism leveled at him. When he does get back on his feet, Adler might have a tough time lining up a new gig, to hear his lawyer David Ring tell it. “Radio silence,” is how Ring, who’s representing Adler in a lawsuit against Espn, described Adler’s.

DVD Review – Southbound (2015)

Southbound, 2015.

Directed by Roxanne Benjamin, David Bruckner, Patrick Horvath and Radio Silence.

Starring Chad Villella, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Kristina Pesic, Dana Gould, Zoe Cooper and David Yow.

Synopsis:

An anthology of five interlocking stories that centre on different groups of people journeying on a desolate stretch of desert

highway.

Despite the promise of the V/H/S and The ABC’s of Death franchises, neither anthology series quite lived up to the ideas that must have looked wonderful on the page. Not that they were terrible or total disasters – although V/H/S: Viral does veer that way – but they just seemed to miss that vital something that made the old standards such as Creepshow and From Beyond the Grave so much fun, leaving the Halloween themed Trick ‘r Treat and Tales of Halloween as the standard bearers for modern anthologies, but they aren’t necessarily movies that work very well

Lionsgate shocks the horror world and reveals a finished 'Blair Witch' sequel at Comic-Con

Lionsgate shocks the horror world and reveals a finished 'Blair Witch' sequel at Comic-Con
You sneaky little so-and-sos. Lionsgate premiered Blair Witch, the new reboot of the 1999 horror classic, at Comic-Con earlier tonight, and they gave the exclusive news about the until-now-top-secret film to Entertainment Weekly. What I find amazing is that they’ve screened this film at least once for press and they managed to actually keep the secret until now. I know how embargoes work, and I know how people love to talk, so for Lionsgate to have pulled this off makes me believe once again that you can actually have and keep a secret in this business. Much like 10 Cloverfield Lane did earlier this year, this film snuck up on us while hiding in plain sight. It’s tough to keep the entire existence of a movie a secret, but keeping the nature of it a secret by telling everyone that it’s something else seems to be a workable game plan.

DVD Release Details & Cover Art for Horror Anthology Southbound

Road trips take detours into fearsome territory in the horror anthology Southbound, coming out on DVD in May from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, and we have the official release details and a look at the cover art:

From the creators of the popular V/H/S trilogy, the movie follows the fates of a group of weary travelers who confront their worst nightmares over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway.

Glasgow Frightfest: ‘Southbound’ Review

Stars: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Chad Villella, Hannah Marks, Fabianne Therese, Nathalie Love, Mather Zickel, David Yow, Tipper Newton | Written and Directed by Radio Silence, Roxanne Benajmin, David Bruckner, Patrick Horvath

Southbound is yet another horror anthology from the people behind the V/H/S trilogy. However unlike that series of films, Southbound actually gets things right. Perfectly right.

Southbound opens and closes with Radio Silence’s The Way Out and The Way In (in that order). A book-ending tale that introduces us to two men on the run, being chased across the desert by ethereal, skeletal grim reapers from which there is no escape. Especially when the pair stop at a gas station… We return to the same tale for the closer, discovering why the pair are on the run and why they are being haunted. Radio Silence’s opener The Way Out really sets the tone for the rest of the film,

This Southbound Journey has Only One Stop - Hell: A Film Review

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by Orchard TV. **there is one spoiler after the review. Directors: Roxanne Benjamin, David Bruckner, Patrick Horvath and Radio Silence. Writers: Roxanne Benjamin, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, David Bruckner, Susan Burke, Dallas Richard Hallam and Patrick Horvath. Cast: Chad Villella, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Hannah Marks, Tipper Newton, Brad Miska and Kristina Pesic. Southbound is an indie horror anthology film, from four directors. Patrick Horvath, of The Signal (2007) fame, brings one of four stories. Though, an initial viewing would make the film appear as if it is five short films; the circular ending brings the film back upon itself. Southbound also brings an inconsistent morality to the screen as one good character finds escape, while another does not. The film also keeps its characters' histories and motivations hidden. This makes an interpretation of the plot difficult. But, the writers do agree on a trapped theme.

[Editor's note: You can now subscribe to Quiet Earth's podcast on iTunes or via RSS!]

Fans of the V/H/S series may recall seeing the credit Radio Silence and wondering what, who, how...? Well, as it turns out, Radio Silence is not a Daft Punk type filmmaking robot collective, but a team of four directors who adopted the moniker in the face of a last-minute decision prior to that film's first screening.

The directors' real names are Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett, Justin Martinez and Chad Villella and after their Youtube short, Mountain Devil Prank Fails Horribly [Continued ...]

Review: Southbound, Like Twilight Zone For The Indie Horror Generation

A lonely stretch of highway through the middle of nowhere provides ample fodder for the directors of Southbound, a new anthology project that reunites much of the creative team behind previous anthology hit V/H/S with a similarly high quality result. While most anthology projects tend to be developed with each segment in isolation from one another the creators of Southbound chose to take another approach with the segments directly linked into one another with the entire piece weaving into a whole that plays like Twilight Zone for the indie horror generation. Linked or not, these things are always easier to approach in individual chunks and given that there are only four creative teams here we'll look at each individually.Four man collective Radio Silence open and...
