The producer described it as a "blood relative" of his alien-invasion movie Cloverfield. Without spoiling what happens in the thriller, directed by Dan Trachtenberg, it's safe to say that its mysterious connection to the original added a delightful and very intriguing layer.

The 'Friday the 13th' Reboot Has Found Its Setting and Script It’s been a long time coming, but after almost a decade, producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are ready to start working on the Friday the 13th reboot. The original 1980 Friday the 13th is a horror classic that introduced hockey-masked lunatic Jason Vorhees to the world, but its sequels over the years have left a lot to be desired. Even the 2009 remake was just not that good. Now, it sounds like Fuller and Form, who also produced The Purge series, are ready for another go at it. Continue reading…

George Lucas no longer involved with developing story for Indiana Jones 5 You know what? I feel that George Lucas is paradoxically not given enough credit for his contributions to pop-culture, while at the same time given way too much credit.

Rings Has Been Delayed Into 2017 Poor Rings. The film has had a rough go of it, with it already being delayed two times. Well, it has just seen one more, moving from a lucrative October spot to February 3rd 2017, Variety report. It’s a pretty sudden move, with the film originally slated for not too far away. There is no official reason for the move either, but there is speculation that it might be about financials and Paramount’s lackluster showing this summer. Lets hope this really is the last move for the film.

Joe 3 is going to happen anytime soon thanks to the busy schedule of Dwayne Johnson. Find out what’s going on with G.I. Joe 3 after the jump. G.I.
