Check out this badass roundtable interview with the cast and creators of Sushi Girl. Contains Luke Skywalker and Candyman… (Bloody Disgusting)

Magnolia Pictures released this dramatic trailer for the forthcoming werewolf movie, Jack and Diane.

James Wan’s next thriller, The Conjuring, is set to be released on January 25th of 2013. The film’s inspired by alleged supernatural events that happened in the Rhode Island home of the Perron family. Insidious is a hard act to follow, but I’m excited to see this. (Daily Dead)

Behold the trailer for The Revenant, a film boasting the winning tagline: “Real Vampires Don’t Turn into Bats. They Turn into Douchebags”

Bloody Disgusting sat down with Anessa Ramsey and discussed subverting the genre in the upcoming film Rites of Spring.

Well, that’s interesting news. So, Rec 4 will NOT be a found footage film. This will create some stylistic differences for the series, but I think it will add a freshness and inject some new life into it as well. (Bloody Disgusting)

Joining the growing cast of Machete Kills is pop star Lady Gaga. I can only imagine how many people will see this based on her involvement alone. Say what you will, but she’ll definitely give this film a wider audience. (Bloody Disgusting)

The cult classic Battle Royale is in talks to be reborn as a TV show for the CW. They’re going to have to tone down the elements a lot, but if the right people are involved, it may actually be pretty cool. Maybe. (LA Times)

Here it is, after much anticipation: the full trailer for Silent Hill Revelation 3D. The first film in the series is one of the better video game adaptations, and this trailer definitely looks promising. The countdown to October 26th begins! (Bloody Disgusting)
