With 33 groups (and climbing) having declared superlatives for the year, Universal’s February release — one of the most popular films of the season — has claimed 10 best-picture honors so far, from groups in […]

    Hit horror movie Get Out to compete as a comedy at the Golden Globes

    In a not-entirely out of character curveball, it sounds like the Golden Globes is to recognise Jordan Peele's hit movie 'Get Out' not as a horror, which it is, but as a comedy (which it isn't).

    ‘Get Out’ Is 2017’s Most Profitable Film So Far

    Jordan Peele’s racism-horror masterpiece “Get Out” has had the best return on investment of any film of 2017 — a spectacular 630 percent. Deep into summer, only one other film this year has come close to that kind of return — and it’s from Blumhouse, the same production company that delivered “Get Out.” M. Night Shyamalan‘s “Split” had a 610 percent ROI. TheWrap calculated an estimate for the combined production budget and marketing costs for the top 25 grossing films this year so far, and Blumhouse founder and CEO Jason Blum’s strategy of taking creative risks within tight budgets is paying off.

    Is 2017 bringing horror back to the mainstream?

    With the success of ‘Get Out’ and ‘Split,’ and the likelihood of ‘It’ becoming a box office smash, horror cinema seems to be seeing a resurgence in critical and commercial acceptability. Depending on who you talk to, recent years have been either a treasure trove or a wasteland for horror movies. On a cult level, interest in the genre has arguably never been higher, with innumerable websites and blogs covering all things horror and scores of horror-based film festivals and conventions popping up across the globe.

    Black Panther is just ‘like Game Of Thrones,’ insists Daniel Kaluuya

    Kaluuya, who shot to stardom earlier this year thanks to his performance in the horror film ‘Get Out’, has been cast as W’Kabi, the confidant to Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa/Black Panther. Clearly he’s rather enjoying himself working on ‘Black Panther’, too, because Daniel Kaluuya has been waxing lyrical about it, as well as its director Ryan Coogler, but made sure to insist to GQ, via Metro, that it doesn’t just copy ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Captain America’. This is like ‘Game Of Thrones’.

    There’s one disquieting moment in Jordan Peele’s critically applauded horror movie ‘Get Out’ in which Brit actor Daniel Kaluuya’s Chris goes outside his girlfriend’s parents’ home for a cigarette. He’s confronted by the family’s groundskeeper Walter, who runs full pelt towards him before taking a sharp turn. Run for your life. Have you tried the #GetOutChallenge? pic.twitter.com/6piaiP1vMX

    Samuel L Jackson attempts to clarify 'black British actors' remarks at Kong premiere

    ‘Kong: Skull Island’ star Samuel L Jackson has responded to criticisms regarding his recent comments that suggested he thought black British actors shouldn’t be cast as African-Americans in Hollywood movies, suggesting black American actors aren’t “afforded the same luxury” in the UK. In an interview with US radio station HOT 97 earlier this week, Jackson questioned whether British star Daniel Kaluuya was the best man for the lead role in hit horror film ‘Get Out’. The film highlights racial tensions in America, pointing a spotlight on white America’s attitude towards interracial relationships.

    Is Get Out set to be 2017's first surprise horror hit?

    It’s the directorial debut of a figure hitherto known exclusively for working in comedy, but it looks like ‘Get Out’ is poised to be 2017’s first major breakthrough horror movie. Produced by Jason Blum of Blumhouse – the production company behind ‘Paranormal Activity,’ ‘Insidious,’ ‘The Purge’ and many more modern horror hits – ‘Get Out’ is written and directed by Jordan Peele, one half of TV comedy duo Key and Peele, who also starred in 2016 comedy ‘Keanu.’ However, ‘Get Out’ sees Peele stay entirely behind the camera to create something altogether different – and so far, the response stateside has been hugely enthusiastic.

    Rejoice! Movie horror is getting back to its R-rated roots

    The latest two projects are freaky doll sequel ‘Annabelle 2’ and the remake of Stephen King’s coulrophobic waking nightmare ‘It’, eschewing the really rather lame PG-13 indictment that has dogged so many so-called horror movies in recent years. ‘It’, which is being made by Andrés Muschietti, who made the Spanish supernatural horror ‘Mama’, will land in September. The ‘Conjuring’ spin-off ‘Annabelle 2’, meanwhile, helmed by ‘Lights Out’ director David F. Sandberg, could also now be anticipated as a potentially worrisome affair – and after all ‘Lights Out’ was successfully terrifying.
