Having grown up in a video store in the 90's during the era of VHS and theatrical release posters and before the intro of DVDs and Blu-ray discs, I binged watched all 80's horror movies I could get my hands on. From The Shining to The Evil Dead to The Thing and Motel Hell, the […]
While we still have awhile to go before HBO Max's upcoming animated prequel series Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai begins getting fed after midnight and is allowed to get wet (leading to all sorts of insanity), we're learning that a legendary name in film is serving as a consultant on the series. And it's someone […]
Tom Hanks's 1989 cult classic The 'Burbs is getting an ultimate edition from the fine folks at Scream Factory. This one will release on March 20th. Scream Factory has been crushing it for years now, but this has always been high on the list of titles fans have wanted them to get to. Tom Hanks […]
As part of Le Monde and Forum des Images' series on films that never came to be, Gremlins director Joe Dante discusses his never-filmed Termite Terrace. The project came about after Dante befriended legendary animator Chuck Jones and would've followed Jones' time as part of the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies unit at Warner Bros. In the […]
Director Joe Dante confirmed an earlier report from Den of Geek stating he might take the reins of an upcoming episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow. Posting to Twitter a short while ago, Dante wrote: It's true..I'm directing an episode of @TheCW_Legends! https://t.co/ijCo3vswTq pic.twitter.com/2ruXy1zy07 — Joe Dante (@joe_dante) December 10, 2015 He also retweeted a […]
Joe Dante, director of The Howling, Innerspace, and Matinee and other 1980s classics, is set to direct Labirintus, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film centers on a paranormal investigator and a psychiatric researcher who explore an decaying Soviet lab in Hungary. They question their own sanity when they face off against a supernatural horror. […]
By Joshua Stone As a big fan of the classic horror films from the 50s and 60s, I was very excited to attend this panel. The panel was moderated by Gary Miereanu, and the panel featured Warner Archive Podcast hosts George Feltenstein, D. W. Ferranti, and Matthew Patterson. The special guest for the panel was […]
Ghostbusters 3 isn't the only old rehash on deck.
Previously, Colin Firth was set to take up the lead role in Joe Dante's Roger Corman biopic, The Man With The Kaleidoscope Eyes. There's been a somewhat dramatic change of plans.
Also: Brian De Palma is adapting Therese Raquin into a film about filming Therese Raquin.
While Joe Dante is off working up a new project with Simon Pegg, his old chums The Mogwai may have found themselves a new master.
Yes, I know that Drag Me To Hell did some of the same ideas not too long ago. There's still space for more.
Warner Bros. want to get their dormant monster movie series real wet.
Joe Dante was so impressed by The Princess of Montpensier, he was moved to send a letter to its director, Bertrand Tavernier. Myself, I thought I'd get him on the phone for a chat. Princess is a very 21st century film, despite being based upon Madame La Fayette's 17th century short story about 16th century […]
I've always been rather frightened of clowns, and I've always been rather frightened of dolls. Watching Joe Dante's The Hole , I was confronted with not just one or other of those, but both at the same time. Like Poltergeist before it, Dante's film goes for the psychic soft spot with a hideous little clown […]
The Hole comes from Joe Dante, the director The Howling, Gremlins, the superb Homecoming episode of Masters of Horror and, to be honest, a whole truck load of films I hold close to my heart. The US is still waiting for the film, but we in the UK saw it in our cinemas last September […]
Bleeding Cool will later have some exclusive information to share regarding this project, but first I'll have to lay the groundwork. At next week's AFM, one of the in-the-works projects being shopped will be horror anthology Paris, I'll Kill You. The title is meant as a twisted-up reflection of the romantic compendium movie Paris Je […]
Somewhat mysteriously (not to mention Polishly), the latest Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader leaked its way online at some point in the last few days. To get us all up to speed, here it is, followed by the film's new French poster (via IMPAwards). As you can see from the little badge there, […]
Joe Dante has been developing a comedy film about the making of Roger Corman's The Trip for some time now. I remember when it was expected to go into production, back in 2007 or so, and Dante promised cameos from Jonathan Demme, John Sayles and Martin Scorsese – every one of them a debtor to […]
Finally coming to UK cinemas on September 22nd and US cinemas… er… um… one day?… is Joe Dante's The Hole, aka The Hole 3D. That's really what it says on press materials for the film – The Hole 3D. Where the "in" on the poster comes from, I don't know. How ridiculous. Becky Sharp was […]
