FIND A FRIGHT: Can you identify the classic horror movies in this collage? Take your best guess, and then hover your mouse over the image to see if you're right. (Photo illustration by Mike Rice, Star Tribune) ‘Horror films don’t create fear,” said the late Wes Craven. “They release it.” Craven should know. The maestro created three milestones of 1970s, ’80s and ’90s terror — “The Last House on the Left,” “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and “Scream.” In each new decade, Craven found contemporary voices to release age-old anxieties, from visceral gore as horrific as the nightly news from Vietnam to larks that offered bloody fun. While moviegoers put a nail in the genre’s coffin a few years ago as a marketplace glut of torture-themed thrillers wore out their welcome, reports of horror’s death were greatly exaggerated. A fresh breed of filmmakers is revitalizing the genre with original, creative, … [Read more...] about New blood in horror: Films get creative, topical

When Avengers: Infinity War hit theaters this past weekend, fans immediately noticed a few stark differences between the trailers and the Marvel film. Whole scenes were nowhere to be seen in the movie, and several characters were not where they were supposed to be. But were some of these just cases of classic Marvel marketing misdirection? Or could they be hints at a previous storyline that was changed at the last minute? A new Pop Funko toy tied into the Marvel movie suggests at least one of these differences point to a possible Infinity War Hulk deleted scene. Minor spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War follow. Hulk makes a big entrance in Avengers: Infinity War, storming Thanos as the Mad Titan threatens Thor, Loki, and the rest of the surviving Asgardians. But after a brief five-minute battle that sends him hurtling down to Earth (a common occurrence for the poor guy), Hulk vanishes from the film. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) somehow can’t get Hulk to resurface, … [Read more...] about Does This ‘Avengers: Infinity War Toy’ Reveal a Deleted Scene for The Hulk?

For some fans, watching the deleted scenes or hearing the filmmakers talk about their original vision for a movie can be just as entertaining and informative as watching the movie itself.Quite often, what was cut out gives you a better idea of what happened behind the scenes than what is in the final polished product. Sometimes it can be frustrating to see a perfectly good scene cut out. However, on the other hand, there are some deleted scenes that would have arguably made their movies actively worse had they been included. It should be no secret by now that comic books are super weird sometimes. As superhero movie adaptations have literal decades of stories and events to draw from, it would make sense that some of our favorite movies nearly had some truly weird and wonderful additions. In fact, there were so many scenes worthy of a mention, we had to make a special extended list to accommodate them all.

x Marvel’s King of Wakanda is currently reigning supreme. Coming out of its historic four-day opening weekend in North America, Black Panther‘s domestic haul now sits at an incredible $235 million for a worldwide cume of $404 million. And things are just getting started. Buoyed by stellar reviews, not to mention the pent-up demand for a superhero movie with a predominantly African-American cast, there’s a good chance Black Panther could break $1 billion in the next week or so, by which point it’ll enter box office royalty. Only four MCU movies have entered Hollywood’s exclusive billion-dollar club – namely Civil War ($1.15 billion), Iron Man 3 ($1.21 billion), Age of Ultron ($1.405 billion) and Joss Whedon’s The Avengers ($1.51 billion) – so we’re fascinated to watch T’Challa’s journey unfold. Speaking of which, as some newly-unveiled concepts from Marvel’s Black Panther: The Art of the Movie reveals, … [Read more...] about Alternate Black Panther Costumes Focus On The Wakandan King
