Roger Corman Talks About Modern Technology And The Female Leads Of Death Race 2050

Though April 5 was Roger Corman’s 90th birthday, he’s still working like he’s 20. In recent weeks the legendary filmmaker has been prepping Death Race 2050, a modern spin on one of his most famous movies, which will feature two female leads and lots of new twists.

The Jungle Book Uses The Best Parts Of The Animated Classic To Make Something Brand New

Making a live-action remake of a beloved animated classic — a remake that nobody asked for — is a tough position to be in. You have to win over fans of the original, but also convert a whole new audience. For Jungle Book director Jon Favreau, the key to that challenge was capturing the right feeling.

Why The Producer Of The Walking Dead Is Making Her Most Political Show Yet

Gale Anne Hurd became famous for producing movies like The Terminator, Aliens, and Armageddon. But these days, she’s better known as the producer of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. Now, she’s producing Hunters for Syfy, and she told us why it’s her most political show yet.

Inside The World's First POV Action Movie: 'Everybody Has To Be Awake Or Somebody Could Die'

Hardcore Henry is the world’s first fully first-person action movie, in which the audience sees from the point of view of the main character. That’s a simple idea, but making it happen was insanely complicated — and dangerous. People were, at times, flirting with death. But for director Ilya Naishuller and star Sharlto Copley, the long, hard road to the film’s April 8 release was worth it.

The Director Of Midnight Special Wishes You'd Stop Calling It A Spielberg Homage

Everybody’s been calling Midnight Special an homage to Steven Spielberg. But director Jeff Nichols didn’t plan it that way, which he was keen to make clear the moment we sat down to talk about the film. Sure, Midnight Special, which expands wide this weekend, owes some of its DNA to Spielberg’s work like ET and Close Encounters of the Third Kind — but Nichols was not aiming for that.

The Director Of 10 Cloverfield Lane Explains All About That Wild Ending

We all went into 10 Cloverfield Lane wondering how it connects to the original Cloverfield.

We spoke with director Dan Trachtenberg, who explained why the ending was the whole point of the movie.

Frank Miller's Batman Was 'Too Nice' For Daren Aronofsky

Later this month, we’ll see Batman v. Superman, loosely based on Frank Miller’s Batman comics. But we almost got a Batman film from Miller and Darren Aronofsky, based on Batman: Year One. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Miller explained what that looked like, and it was very, very strange.

The Bizarre Facebook Hoax That Escalated Into A Real-Life Double Murder

The media scrambled to make sense of this strange, baffling double homicide — the angle that most outlets came up with was “unfriending on Facebook leads to murder!” (Including 20/20, which devoted an episode to the case.) But as prosecutor Dennis Brooks explains in Too Pretty to Live: The Catfishing Murders of East Tennessee, the situation was a lot more complicated than that.

Oculus Founders Explain Why You'll Likely Stay Seated In Virtual Reality

Oculus has a incredible product: a headset that can make you feel like you’re in another world. With its upcoming motion controllers, Oculus Touch, you can even reach out and grab virtual objects.
