#darkshadows #johnnydepp

Nine character posters have been released for Dark Shadows. The movie is described as: In the year 1752 Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England, to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass, and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet — or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Brouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire and then burying him alive.

Izzard will play Grandpa, the Munster family patriarch, a powerful, ancient vampire with an irrepressible twinkle in his eye. He can shapeshift into rats, wolves, and other creatures at will, but he’s also dapper and charming in a fedora;

A few days back Variety reported that Lionsgate is pacting with WWE Studios on a two-film deal. Studio will team with the Connecticut-based entertainment company on a reboot of "Leprechaun," the 1993 horror pic that was one of the first starring roles for Jennifer Aniston and an indie hit.

Cormans World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel review

Roger Corman received a lot of recognition for his work behind the camera, but his legacy is much more far-reaching than anyone truly knows. That is the sentiment that I took away from viewing the documentary “Corman’s World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel”, directed by Alex Stapleton. Some people are under-appreciated for what they contributed to the movie business, and are doomed to be pigeon-holed by what their name alone invokes. “Schlock”, “Campy”…..these are the terms that anybody thinks of when Corman’s name is brought up, over the course of his 7-plus decades of making films. But what he means to Hollywood is so much more, and this film does well to present the side of this man’s career that very few know about. read more
