Jordan Peel also took home best director.

    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.

    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.

    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.
