In what could be a major blow to filmmaker Charlie Kessler‘s complaint against Matt and Ross Duffer (The Duffer Brothers) over creative credit for Netflix‘s hugely popular sci-fi series Stranger Things, TMZ has reportedly obtained emails that prove The Duffer Brothers were developing a “Montauk” series as early as November 2010 — three and a half […]
The road to Stranger Things‘ third season on Netflix has been a good news-bad news roller coaster for series creators Matt and Ross Duffer (The Duffer Brothers) over the past several weeks.

Once upon a time, Neill Blomkamp, the wunderkind who basically popped out of nowhere and brought us a relatively fresh spin on the alien invasion genre with District 9, pitched a proposal for Alien 5 to Fox and to Ridley Scott. Fox was interested, too, but then Scott decided he wanted to keep that sandbox […]

The story behind the story behind the film behind two Golden Globes & seven Oscar
So says a director who owes his career to a very heavily CG short film. How odd.
Like a jazz Ratatouille with coiffeture instead of cuisine.
Watch The Wholly Family, Gilliam's most recent movie.
Mixes live action, animation, ripped up porn and lots and lots of condoms.
A plot hole from John Carpenter's original gets filled. Or spoofed. Or both at once.
A sort of pseudo-sequel to The Avengers, Item 47 is to be premiered this Friday night at San Diego Comic-Con and then presented as a short film on the Avengers Blu-ray this September. It sounds like it might be fun: a couple find an alien gun in the wreckage left by Loki’s attack on New […]
Nacho Vigalondo‘s Extraterrestrial is released today in the US, at selected cinemas and via VOD and iTunes.

One bit of casting news, one set of photos and one full short film. Seems that Mary Elizabeth Winstead stories are like the number 38 bus. Let’s start with the casting. Another new project to have been unveiled at the EFM in Berlin sounds rather reminiscent of The Innocents, at least in Variety‘s version of […]
One of the Brothers Lynch is called David but, no, it’s not him. The other is called Keith. They co-direct their projects, including Dual, an ambitious new short that has been programmed in the London Film Festival.

Ladies and Gentlemen, please meet the first poster I’ve actually coveted in the 21st Century. It will be mine – oh yes, it will be mine. Enrico Casarosa’s short, La Luna, will premiere at the Annecy festival and then…? In my dreams at least it will appear before an upcoming Disney Pixar release. Seems like […]
With X-Men: First Class, Big Fish, Gremlins 2, The Mist and plenty more on his resume*, Aaron Sims has developed a most impressive back catalogue of design and FX work. All indications are that his output as a director will be similarly polished and stylish. Exhibit A: this trailer for his short film, Archetype. Now, […]
Terry Gilliam’s new film, The Wholly Family, is to receive a World Premiere “multicast” on the 25th of May.
