Production Begins on Melissa McCarthy comedy Superintelligence

Production begins on Melissa McCarthy comedy Superintelligence

Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that filming began this week on location in Atlanta for Superintelligence, starring Melissa McCarthy, Bobby Cannavale, and James Corden. Ben Falcone is directing the new action comedy, from a script by Steve Mallory.

Nothing extraordinary ever happens to Carol Peters (McCarthy), so when she starts getting snarky backtalk from her TV, phone and microwave, she thinks she’s being punked. Or losing her mind. In fact, the world’s first superintelligence has selected her for observation, taking over her life…with a bigger, more ominous plan to take over everything. Now Carol is humanity’s last chance before this artificial intelligence-with-an-attitude decides to pull the plug.

Falcone and McCarthy are also producing, alongside Rob Cowan, whose credits include the Falcone/McCarthy comedy Tammy and the Conjuring films. Screenwriter Steve Mallory additionally serves as an executive producer.

Falcone’s creative behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Barry Peterson (22 Jump Street, Game Night), editor Tia Nolan (How to be Single, Angie Tribeca), production designer Jefferson Sage (who has worked with McCarthy on several films, including Spy, The Heat, and Bridesmaids), and costume designer Louise Mingenbach (the Hangover and X-Men franchises).

Filming on location in and around Atlanta, Georgia, Superintelligence is scheduled for release on December 25, 2019.

The Hellfest Trailer is Your E-Ticket Ride to Die

The Hell Fest trailer is your E-Ticket ride to die

CBS Films and Lionsgate have released the first trailer for Hell Fest, starring Amy Forsyth (The Path, Rise), Emmy-nominee Reign Edwards (MacGyverSnowfall), and Bex Taylor-Klaus (Here and Now, Arrow). Check out the Hell Fest trailer below, along with the poster in the gallery!

College student Natalie (Forsyth) is visiting her childhood best friend Brooke (Edwards) and her roommateTaylor (Taylor-Klaus). If it was any other time of year these three and their boyfriends might be heading to a concert or bar, but it is Halloween which means that like everyone else they will be bound for HELL FEST – a sprawling labyrinth of rides, games, and mazes that travels the country and happens to be in town. Every year thousands follow Hell Fest to experience fear at the ghoulish carnival of nightmares.

But for one visitor, Hell Fest is not the attraction – it is a hunting ground. An opportunity to slay in plain view of a gawking audience, too caught up in the terrifyingly fun atmosphere to recognize the horrific reality playing out before their eyes. As the body count and frenzied excitement of the crowds continues to rise, he turns his masked face to Natalie, Brooke, Taylor and their boyfriends who will fight to survive the night.

The film is directed by Gregory Plotkin (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, Editor — Get Out, Happy Death Day) and produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, Aliens).

Hellfest is set for release on September 28 of this year.

Cats Movie Cast Revealed to Include Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, and More

Cats movie cast revealed to include Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, and more

The upcoming feature film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical, Cats, has found it’s felines. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden and Ian McKellen have all signed on to the musical adaptation. Academy Award winner Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech) is set to direct the film from a script by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot). Production will reportedly begin at the end of this year in the UK.

First performed in 1981, Cats is the fourth longest-running show in Broadway as well as West End history, with a direct-to-video version of the production released in 1998. Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the show is set amongst a larger- than-life junkyard playground and is alive with our favorite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Grizabella and Skimbleshanks.

The Jellicle Cats come out to play on one special night of the year – the night of the Jellicle Ball. One by one they tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.

Working Title Films, who previously worked with Hooper on the hit 2012 film adaptation of Les Miserables, will produce the Cats movie alongside Lloyd Webber. No casting has taken place yet.

Ten years ago, Christopher Nolan’s groundbreaking blockbuster The Dark Knight was released. Commemorating the 10-year anniversary, Warner Bros. Pictures is bringing the film to four select IMAX locations for an exclusive, one-week engagement, beginning August 24, 2018.

With The Dark Knight, Nolan broke new ground—shooting select sequences of the movie with IMAX film cameras—making The Dark Knight the first major feature film to utilize IMAX 70mm film and take advantage of the format’s massive scale and increased resolution. The movie was hailed by both critics and audiences and went on to be the top-grossing release of 2008.

The exclusive limited engagement will offer the public an extremely rare opportunity to see The Dark Knight on the biggest screens possible, as it was intended to be seen—in IMAX 70mm film—offering a uniquely immersive cinematic experience. Tickets for the opening day go on sale this Friday, July 20, with showtimes only announced for August 24. The theatres will list additional showtimes for subsequent dates closer to release.

The Dark Knight will be playing for one screening a day at the following theatres:

AMC Universal Citywalk IMAX, Universal City
AMC Lincoln Square IMAX, New York City
AMC Metreon IMAX, San Francisco
Ontario Place Cinesphere IMAX, Toronto

The Dark Knight stars Christian Bale in the title role and Heath Ledger, who won an Oscar for his performance as The Joker. The ensemble cast also includes Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Morgan Freeman.

Nolan directed The Dark Knight from a screenplay written by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. Emma Thomas, Charles Roven and Christopher Nolan produced the film. Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull served as executive producers.

Fantasia 2018: Unfriended: Dark Web Review

Fantasia 2018 – Unfriended: Dark Web review

ComingSoon.net attended Fantasia Fest‘s International Premiere of Blumhouse’s latest horror offering, Unfriended: Dark Web, the stand-alone sequel to the 2014 hit film Unfriended. While the sequel retains the same format of real-time horror unfolding over a group Skype chat, it loses the supernatural angle, instead choosing to focus on the more “realty”-based idea of mysterious Dark Web forces controlling our innocent protagonists.

RELATED: Death Wants Some Face Time in the Unfriended: Dark Web Trailer & Poster

The story kicks off when twenty-something protagonist Matias (Colin Woodell) cracks into a laptop he stole from a local cafe. He’s a budding software developer, and has been building a beta version of a program to communicate with his deaf girlfriend Amaya (Stephanie Nogueras), although their relationship is on the rocks. His opening of the laptop coincides with an online game night planned between Matias and his friends Nari (Get Out‘s incredible Betty Gabriel) and her fiancee Serena (Rebecca Rittenhouse), computer expert Damon (Andrew Lees), conspiracy theorist AJ (Connor Del Rio) and hipster DJ Lexx (Savira Windyani).

While the news of Nari and Serena’s engagement is given added weight with the revelation that Serena’s mom is dying in a hospital, the real drama is between Matias and Amaya… that is until Matias accidentally realizes the laptop is chock full of black & white surveillance footage which is later revealed to contain snuff films. After accessing the previous owner’s Facebook pages, he begins an involuntary dialogue with said owner whose online nickname is Charon IV (Douglas Tait). As Matias slowly unravels the mystery of what sort of sick things Charon IV has been doing, he begins a deadly game of cat and mouse while trying to protect his friends from sinister forces.

Screenwriter and first-time director Stephen Susco (The Grudge, Texas Chainsaw 3D) delivers a steady pace and elicits consistently solid performances across-the-board from his cast. He also wisely keeps all the footage authentic. There’s nothing worse than a movie with phone or surveillance footage that looks like it was shot and lit by a master DP. Susco keeps the look of everything grounded (all the operating systems on the laptop are up-to-date!), and doles out just enough scares to keep us invested. He also included a fun blink-and-you’ll miss it Cambridge Analytica joke that made this reviewer smile.

Where the film eventually strains credulity is when the evil Dark Web sickos start encroaching in on our leads, and the level to which they can quickly control and access anything they need to manipulate or hurt them starts to take on an almost magical aura that would make Newt Scamander skeptical of its authenticity. It’s clear this is a horror movie and we can suspend disbelief to an extent, but some of the kills are a little too neat and tidy. It also should be noted that at the Fantasia screening the audience erupted into cheers and applause at one particular character’s death, and it’s hard to tell if it’s because the character deserved to die, the audience had no empathy, or both.

For a Blumhouse scarer, Unfriended: Dark Web is not breaking any new ground, proving more “Dork” than “Dark,” although it may encourage a few horror fans to put a piece of tape over that little camera on top of your computer… even when it’s not on!

Unfriended: Dark Web will arrive in theaters on July 20, 2018.

The sixth installment, American Horror Story: Roanoke, recently received four Emmy Award nominations in the hairstyling, makeup and sound editing categories.
