Production has begun on Polaroid, a new supernatural thriller from Dimension Films and the producers of The Ring. The film marks Norwegian director Lars Klevberg’s feature debut and is based on his 2015 movie short of he same name.
Said to be in the ilk of The Ring and Final Destination, Polaroid tells the tale of a high school loner who discovers a vintage Polaroid camera that threatens the lives of those whose photographs are taken. It’s slate for release Aug. 25.
If that isn’t enough to pique your interest, consider the film’s casting of stunning up-and-comer Priscilla Quintana (pictured above). Quintana has guest-starred on Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” and played an uncredited “foam girl” in Universal’s Furious 7 - that’s enough for us! She will also co-star in Chain Letter director Deon Taylor’s Stranded.
Charlize Theron is gorgeous, but we all know Margot Robbie has stolen her thunder in Hollywood. While Theron took on roles that downplayed her hotness and bore us to no end, Margot emerged as sex symbol extraordinaire, going full-nude in her movie debut and most recently playing geek fantasy Harley Quinn.
But, now, Theron is back! The leggy stunner stars as a ruthless MI6 assassin with a taste for Sofia Boutella’s vaginal charms in John Wick director David Leitch’s Atomic Blonde, an adaptation of graphic novel “The Coldest City.” It arrives in theaters July 28.
“Graceland” and “Breakout Kings” stunner Serinda Swan is set to play Medusa in Marvel’s new ABC series “Inhumans,” premiering this fall with an eight episode season. The series centers on the Inhuman Royal Family, a race of superhumans created by aliens through experiments on primitive man.
Swan’s Medusa doesn’t rock snakes for hair, but instead has beautiful flowing red tresses she can animate through psychokinesis and use as a weapon and to carry out a variety of tasks. She is the queen of the Inhumans, a warrior who is also wife and trusted advisor to King Black Bolt (Anson Mount).
Swan played Aphrodite in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightening Thief and sorceress Zatanna Zatara on The CW’s “Smallville.” Fright fans may recognize her from monster movie Creature and creepy supernatural thriller Jinn. She’s best known for playing bounty hunter Erica Reed on A&E’s “Breakout Kings” and DEA agent Paige Arkin on USA’s “Graceland.”
Netflix has released a trailer for its upcoming original series “Mindhunter.” Produced by Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theronand acclaimed director David Fincher (Se7en), the show is based on renowned FBI profiler John Douglas and novelist Mark Olshaker’s book, Mind Hunter:Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit.
“Mindhunter”recounts Douglas’ experiences tracking down serial killers and rapists while pioneering profiling techniques used by the Bureau today. He was the inspiration for agent Jack Crawford in Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter novels and the Frank Black character in Chris Carter’s “Millennium” series.
Douglas has profiled such noted monsters as JohnWayne Gacy, Ted Bundy, David Berkowitz (aka: Son of Sam), Charles Manson, James Earl Ray, Edmund Kemper (aka: the Coed Killer), Richard Speck, and countless others.
Douglas retired in the mid-nineties, but continued to consult in such high-profile cases as The Unabomber, the Nicole Brown Simpson/ Ron Goldman murders, and the JonBenet Ramsey homicide.
“Mindhunter” premieres on Netflix in October. It stars Jonathan Groff (”Glee”), Holt McCallanay (Alien3), Cotter Smith (You Don’t Know Jack), Hannah Gross (”Unless”), and Anna Torv (“Fringe“).
A final trailer has gone online for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ King Kong reboot Kong Skull Island, in theaters March 10. Helmed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the film stars Tom Hiddleston as Vietnam War veteran leading a group of scientists and soldiers on an expedition to find the grumpy ape.
Things go bananas when they not only find Kong, but inadvertently unleash the monsters living underneath the island’s surface.
Kong Skull Island co-stars John Goodman as the government official in charge of the mission, Samuel L. Jackson as an Army colonel and helicopter pilot, John C. Reilly as a World War II vet stranded on the island for 28 years , and Oscar-winning hottie Brie Larson as a photojournalist.
Twentieth Century Fox has released a new trailer for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, the eagerly anticipated Prometheus sequel/Alien prequel releasing May 19. The footage sets up the story of the Covenant ship’s crew, a group of scientists and soldiers on a mission to colonize what should be an uncharted paradise.
The Covenant is a Noah’s Ark type of deal with a crew made up of couples meant to populate the mysterious planet, including gay husbands who have either figured out a way to shit out some babies or are along to sass the neomorph – which is on display here in all its frighful glory!
Alien: Covenant stars Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice), Carmen Ejogo (Purge: Anarchy), Callie Hernandez (Blair Witch), Amy Seimetz (You’re Next), Demian Bichir (Hateful Eight), Danny McBride (”Eastbound & Down”), James Franco, and Michael Fassbender, reprising his Prometheus role of David the android.
Serbian-Australian stunner Bojana Novakovic is set to star in Beyond Skyline, a sequel to the highly underrated 2010 alien invasion thriller Skyline. Liam O’Donnell, who penned the original, writes and makes his directorial debut with the project.
Beyond Skyline takes place during the same alien invasion of the original film, but at a different location where a father and detective risks his life to rescue his son from an alien warship. No word what role Novakovic plays, but we’re sure it will be that of an attractive person.
Horror fans will recognize Novakovic from two solid frighteners: Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell and producer M. Night Shyamalan’s Devil. She’s also starred in the Mel Gibson revenge drama Edge of Darkness and British indie The Hallow.
“Dexter” and “Chuck” stunner Yvonne Strahovski is set to star in The Predator, a reboot of the popular franchise first introduced in 1987 as an Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi actioner. Now shooting in Vancouver, Shane Black directs from a script he co-wrote with Monster Squad writer/director Fred Dekker.
Strahovski plays a MILFy single mom whose troubled young son gets inadvertently caught in the war against the alien predators through his father. Boyd Holbrook (”Narcos”) has been tapped as the dad and overrated kid actor Jacob Tremblay (Shut In) as the son.
Rounding out the cast are action hero Thomas Jane (The Punisher), comedian Keegan-Michael Key, Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Alfie Allen (”Game of Thrones”), and geek goddess Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse) as a sexy scientist.
Strahovski and Munn kicking ass together gives us tremendous hope for this movie, but here’s hoping the kid angle doesn’t ruin the film. The last time Black wrote a kid into an R-rated story was for The Nice Guys, turning what promised to be a gritty, balls-out action-comedy into an embarrassingly sappy and boring mess.
Jessica Biel produces and stars in the debut season of USA’s new anthology series “The Sinner.” Based on the novel by Petra Hammesfahr, the show finds Biel playing a hot, young MILF who brutally stabs a stranger to death with no apparent motive.
“The Sinner” marks Biel’s return to TV since starring as Mary Camden on the hit family drama “7th Heaven” 15 years ago. Bill Pullman co-stars as the creepy, bearded detective obsessed with helping Biel’s character uncover what could have triggered her actions. The show premieres in summer.
Ellen Wong stars in The Void, a creepy supernatural thriller set in a hospital where staff and patients are tormented by an evil force when a police officer brings in a bloodied stranger for help. Inspired by the works of horror icon John Carpenter, the film is helmed by co-directors Steven Kostanski and Jeremy Gillespie.
Wong is best known to genre fans for her roles as scorned schoolgirl Knives Chau in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and as hot sheriff’s secretary Brenda in the 2012 Silent Night, Deadly Night remake Silent Night. She’ll next be seen in the Emma Watson/Tom Hanks cyber-thriller The Circle.
