The Crow Director to Helm The Ring 3 Paramount is reportedly in talks with F. Javier Gutierrez -- director of the planned reboot of The Crow -- to helm The Ring 3, which may be released in 3D. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Ring and The Ring Two producers Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are returning for the third film. Naomi Watts -- the star of the first two films -- has not yet been confirmed to return.

With 2008's "Cloverfield," J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves showed that the found footage aesthetic—comprised of shaky, you-are-there camerawork and rough cutting and usually relegated to hardcore horror films like the "Paranormal Activity" series and, of course, "The Blair Witch Project"—could also be employed to evoke moments of wide-eyed awe and wonder. Unfortunately, since then, the gee-whiz factor of found footage has been largely ignored, popping up only occasionally (in things like "District 9" or "Chronicle").

'Dumb and Dumber To' Trailer: Yep, It's a Sequel, All Right

Dumb and Dumber To
If you've been waiting 20 years for Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels to reprise their Dumb and Dumber roles as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, you should find your patience well rewarded with the first trailer for the long-promised sequel, Dumb and Dumber To. And if you never really thought the first movie was all that funny to begin with?

Death is a staple of Nicholas Sparks romances, and that’s as true as ever in his latest movie adaptation The Best of Me. This time, the Grim Reaper conveniently provides an excuse to bring two high school sweethearts back together. Rich girl Amanda (Michelle Monaghan) and wrong-side-of-the-tracks boy Dawson (James Marsden) haven’t seen each other in twenty years when they reunite at the funeral of a mutual friend. Sparks fly, but lots of obstacles stand in their way because there would be no movie otherwise.

New ‘Earth to Echo’ Trailer: Because Kids Deserve Unnecessary Found Footage Films Too Relativity Media Supporters of the “found footage” format say it’s more of a filmmaking tool than a tired shtick, but while that’s an arguable claim even they would have to agree that too many filmmakers simply don’t know how to use this particular tool.

And a heaping portion of credit for Oculus and its status as WWE Studios’ first film to not deserve a thorough suplexing goes to director Mike Flanagan. But the question remains: what is Flanagan to do now?
