Mondo Poster Premiere: 'The Babadook' Is Waiting for You, Plus: More MondoCon Exclusives
The Babadook hasn't even hit theaters yet, but having caught it during its film-festival run, we can already safely declare that it will unquestionably go down as one of the creepiest horror movies of 2014. It's about a single mother trying to deal with her young son's obsession with a mysterious figure that he says is invading their home. It's a gorgeously shot, tremendously well-acted movie that's bound to get under your skin in one way or another.
And speaking of getting under your skin, it is our sincere pleasure to debut artist Gary Pullin's Mondo poster for Jennifer Kent's The Babadook. This will be on sale exclusively at MondoCon in Austin, Texas this coming weekend, where you will also be able to meet Pullin (he's in booth B9) and shake his... Read More
See the World's Coolest Deck of Movie-Related Playing Cards
Galleries like Mondo in Austin and Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles thrive because they offer movie and pop-culture lovers an irresistible combination of nostalgia and contemporary art. It’s artwork most people can afford that usually puts a unique spin on much-loved movies (and a few terrible films that people can’t get enough of).
We’ve seen posters and prints of films like Pulp Fiction and The Fifth Element galore, but we haven’t seen those cult movies turned into… playing cards. “Fifty-two cards. Fifty-two of your favorite cult movies. An awesome deck of playing cards for people who love cinema as much as we do,” reads the website for Cult Movie Cards.
After a successful Kickstarter, London-based creative... Read More
An 'Avengers' Villain Heads to 'Skull Island' for 'Kings of Summer' Director
One of the few true surprises at this year's Comic-Con was the unexpected reveal that Legendary, makers of the likes of Batman Begins and Godzilla, would be making a King Kong prequel called Skull Island. There was a bit of jungle-shaking teaser footage, which was created exclusively to announce the project's release date of November 4, 2016, but that was all the info we had.
Well now we at least know two names involved with the project: Jordan Vogt-Roberts and Tom Hiddleston.
You may not recognize that first name, and that's totally fair because so far Vogt-Roberts hasn't directed any projects as high profile as Skull Island. However, he did direct the Sundance hit The Kings of Summer, which seemed to kick his career to the next level. Since then, he's done... Read More
Watch: The 10 Most Popular Movie Myths That People Actually Believe Are True
The movies have taught us many things over the years – like doing drugs and having sex at a secluded summer camp will result in dying an absolutely horrible death, and swimming in the ocean increases our chances of being devoured by a giant sea predator by roughly a billion percent (I’m not an actuary, so don’t hold me to that figure).
As it turns out, the movies have also taught us many things that simply aren’t true. The guys at All Time 10s have compiled this handy video list that would make The Mythbusters proud.
If you’ve ever watched a movie and thought to yourself, Next time I’m trying to break open a locked door, I’ll just shoot it open with my trusty sidearm, or I’ve reached a high cliff, and the bad guys are... Read More
'By the Sea' First Look: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Show Off a Miserable Marriage
Entertainment Weekly shared some exclusive photos of the upcoming Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt romantic drama By the Sea. It’s the couple’s first on-screen collaboration since they met working on Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2005, and it’s Jolie’s third time in the director’s chair. She also wrote the film and is producing (with Pitt coproducing).
Jolie and Pitt are newlyweds, but the film centers on a couple at the end of their rope who take a vacation in order to save their marriage. The film is set in France during the mid-1970s in a quiet, seaside town. Jolie plays a former dancer named Vanessa, while Pitt plays husband Roland, an American writer.
“As a kind of found-family is assembled amid these maritime... Read More
New 'Interstellar' Poster: Where in the Galaxy Is Matthew McConaughey?
And here come the fall blockbusters!
Earlier this week we devoured the first full-length trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, and now comes a new, intriguing poster for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar that finds star Matthew McConaughey going for a nice, unassuming stroll through the snow. Thing is, he ain't on Earth -- as evidenced by the astronaut suit he's wearing. So where is he, what does this place have to do with the movie's plot and will he come across an Empire Strikes Back Tauntaun at some point?
Well, knowing the answers to those questions will spoil the movie... except for that Tauntaun. We'd really like to know the answer to that one. Instead, let's just gaze upon what looks to be another fascinating... Read More

Movie News: Matt Damon Returning As Jason Bourne; 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' Reboot Coming
Bourne: Matt Damon is returning to the Bourne series under the direction of Paul Greengrass. The two previously worked together on 2004's The Bourne Supremacy and 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum (pictured above), as well as 2010's non-Bourne action drama Green Zone. Reportedly, the new project is targeting July 26, 2016 for release, which would delay the next planned Boune offshoot starring Jeremy Renner, which will be directed by Justin Lin. [Deadline]
I Know What You Did Last Summer: It's been 17 years since Kevin Williamson (Scream) adapted Lois Duncan's thriller I Know What You Did Last Summer for the big screen, and so Sony has decided the time is right for a reboot. The studio has tapped Mike Flanagan (Oculus) to write a new script with his... Read More
Your Top Three: Kevin Smith Movies
Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks.
You don't have to love Kevin Smith as a filmmaker to appreciate that he's had an interesting career. Beginning with an indie-darling, cult-classic Sundance sensation, following it with one of the most unfortunate transitions to the studio system of the 1990s, then continuing to deliver work that surprised critics (for better or worse, up and down) and delighted a core fan base, he's always been someone to pay attention to.
This week, his latest hits theaters and it's yet another example of how he's anything but boring. Tusk, a serial-killer horror flick and the first installment of a new Canada-based "True North Trilogy," sounds too bizarre... Read More
The 'I Saw the Devil' Remake Lands a Killer Creative Team
I Saw the Devil is a haunting 2010 Korean movie from director Ji-woon Kim (The Good, the Bad, the Weird) about a secret service agent who implants a tracking device inside the body of the man who killed is wife, not so he can track the serial killer, but so that he can torment him and make his life a living hell. It's a brilliant and brutal movie about the slippery slopes of revenge and insanity and how the two are so often intertwined. It's also the kind of movie that's so intense, no matter how much you warn someone about its violence, they are guaranteed to walk away thinking, "Damn, that was a messed-up movie."
So of course it's being remade.
Here's the thing, though: The Wrap revealed the team behind the remake, and the names are packed with... Read More
