Ellen Page in Flatliners

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago in the year 2011, we found out that Source Code writer Ben Ripley had been hired to pen the screenplay for a remake of the 1990 thriller Flatliners.

That remake would eventually become a sequel, with original star Kiefer Sutherland joining the cast to reprise his role. And now a trailer for the movie, which stars Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, and Kiersey Clemons, has been released online.

You can learn a little bit more about the movie and check out the trailer below.

The Vampire Diaries
Season 8 Episode 16: “I Was Feeling Epic”
Directed by Julie Plec
Written by Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec
Created by Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec
Starring Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Kat Graham, Candice King, Zach Roerig, Matthew Davis, Michael Malarkey
The CW
Air Date: Friday, March 10th, 2017, 8:00pm

Last week on The Vampire Diaries, they needed to lure Katherine, queen of hell, out of hiding so they planned Stefan and Caroline’s (Paul Wesley, Candice King) wedding. The traitor was the newly returned Kelly Donovan (Melinda Clarke). The wedding was beautiful with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) as minister. It was the reception where things got hairy, as the house exploded with Bonnie (Kat Graham) and the twins inside. The girls siphoned Bonnie’s magic to protect them, and it was only with Enzo’s (Michael Malarkey) encouragement that she was able to give a lifesaving magic lesson to the girls. Bonnie collapsed as Vicki Donovan (Kayla Ewell) rang the bell.

Before the start of the finale, the cast and creators gave us “Forever Yours,” a look back at the love stories, friendships, and the power of family that has moved through this little vampire series for eight seasons. It’s amazing to see how young they were at the beginning and how at the end, with all the smiles and the darkness.

Spoilers below for the very last episode of The Vampire Diaries.

How ‘xXx: Return Of Xander Cage’ Celebrates International Stars and Fierce Women

xXx Return of Xander Cage review

The one film you’d least expect to be so much fun while at the same time smashing the Bechdel test into pieces is xXx: Return of Xander Cage. But the Vin Diesel-starring vehicle does it with ease. Not only that, but it also celebrates some of the biggest global stars without painting them as a villain. It would be way too easy to look past this film, given that it is not part of a very successful franchise. However, the sequel doesn’t care about any of that. Instead, it raises the bar on absurd stunts and pushes the envelope on logic and physics. So much so that the film actually gets meta and pokes fun at itself. But really, if you look past all of that, you’ll see that it is actually a celebration of global stars and fierce women.

We got a chance recently to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to Diesel and some of the cast of the film from Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone, Kris Wu, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, and Nina Dobrev to its director, D.J. Caruso. Each of one of them sharing the Diesel’s sentiment and all of them agreeing that it was so much fun to be a part of. Check out what they had to say here below.

xXx Return of Xander Cage review

xXx: Return of Xander Cage
Director: D. J. Caruso
Screenwriter: F. Scott Frazier
Cast: Vin Diesel, Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone, Kris Wu, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev, Toni Collette, Samuel L. Jackson
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 115 Minutes
Release Date: January 20, 2017

It never ceases to amaze me how much passion Vin Diesel has in seemingly dead in the water projects. Fast and Furious and Riddick were two Diesel franchise vehicles that never really got off the ground when they launched, but because of his dedication to the fans, they got sequels. The former much more popular than the latter, but the actor took it upon himself to breathe new life into the xXx films with xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

Never let it be said that Diesel doesn’t know how to have fun, because in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, there is plenty of it. There’s no political message, no over-sexualization of either gender, and no xenophobic thoughts. Instead, the film treats us to something everyone can enjoy. My full review below.

‘xXx: Return Of Xander Cage’ Trailer: Vin Diesel Turns Adrenaline Rush Dial To 11

xXx Return of Xander Cage

Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for xXx: Return of Xander Cage starring Vin Diesel as the title character. Diesel makes a return to the role after taking a brief (if you could call it that) hiatus. It is the second sequel of the franchise, with the first, directed by Rob Cohen, being released in 2002. It was then followed up by its mediocre sequel, xXx: State of the Union, in 2005, where Lee Tamahori took Cohen’s place as director and Ice Cube took on the title role from an absent Diesel.

So after nearly a decade of “development,” Diesel is back as Xander Cage, and he is facing a threat unlike any other he has faced before when four deadly action junkies like himself come across a very dangerous weapon. So it is up to Cage and his new recruits to stop them. Check out the trailer below.

xXx Return of Xander Cage

Vin Diesel is really no stranger to bringing back his dying film franchises back from the dead, Fast and Furious and Riddick being the two, and now we can look forward to him bringing back xXx.

Paramount has released the first trailer for xXx: Return of Xander Cage. Diesel returns to play the title character, extreme sports star, and sometimes spy, because if there is anything we need more of its Diesel in an action movie. Check out the trailer below.

SXSW 2015 Movie Review: The Final Girls

SXSW Movie Review The Final Girls

The Final Girls
Director: Todd Strauss-Schulson
Screenwriters: M. A. Fortin, Joshua John Miller
Cast: Taissa Farmiga, Malin Akerman, Adam DeVine, Thomas Middleditch, Alia Shawkat, Alexander Ludwig, Nina Dobrev
Release Date: March 13, 2014

Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas) The Final Girls is the latest in a growing cannon of meta-horror films. Part horror, part comedy, and all meta, The Final Girls satirizes 70’s and 80’s summer camp slasher films. The story follows Max (Taissa Farmiga, American Horror Story), a young virgin who (through mysterious circumstances which shall not be spoiled here) lands inside the very film that defined her mother’s scream queen career. Once inside, Max and her reluctant friends must survive horny camp counselors, trippy flashbacks, sing-alongs, and the deranged psycho-killer Billy (a stoic, slow-walking homage to Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th).

SDCC 2014: Check Out Our Massive Comic-Con Panel Photo Gallery

sdcc panel photos

While we were in San Diego covering Comic-Con, our hearty team of weather-worn GoDs cranked out more than 60 articles. We were given a personal tour of Crimson Peak by director Guillermo del Toro. We piloted a virtual Jaeger from Pacific Rim. We covered four straight days of film and television panels in Hall H. We published tons of really great comic book news, casting announcements, all manner of awesome reveals, and so much more!

I took so many photos during the Hall H panels I attended at SDCC, that I’ve been updating our panel coverage articles with galleries since Sunday afternoon. And I’ve only now just finished processing my final lot of panel photos.

Below are nearly 400 additional panel photos that were taken over the course of my four days in Hall H, including Kingsman: The Secret Service with Colin Firth; the EW Women Who Kick Ass panel; The Maze Runner, the newest film in the Hitman franchise Agent 47; Michael Mann’s Blackhat with Chris Helmsworth; Let’s Be Cops; the newest stop-motion masterpiece from Laika, The Box Trolls; Paris-sewer found-footage horror, As Above So Below; Salma Hayek’s ‘The Raid,’ Everly; and an animated film that was completely off my radar pre-SDCC, but which I am now extremely looking forward to, The Book of Life.
