First Trailer for Haunted House Horror 'Delirium' from Johnny Martin

"I didn't have a good feeling about this..." Gravitas Ventures has debuted the first official trailer for a horror thriller titled Delirium, which first premiered last year but is just getting a release in early 2018. This is actually one of the first feature films made by former stuntman and second unit director Johnny Martin, who later went on to direct Vengeance: A Love Story with Nicolas Cage, and Hangman with Al Pacino, both also released this year (before this film). Delirium is about a group of teens who dare a classmate to reach the porch of a legendary old house, but he never comes back. So they gear up and go in themselves to get him. Starring Mike C. Manning, Griffin Freeman, August Roads, Ryan Pinkston, Seth Austin, and Elena Sanchez. This looks like a very wild, testosterone-filled haunted house horror flick. Tread carefully. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Johnny Martin's Delirium,

‘Hangman’ Trailer: Al Pacino Plays Deadly Game With Serial Killer

‘Hangman’ Trailer: Al Pacino Plays Deadly Game With Serial Killer
“I don’t want to see them die for what I did,” growls Al Pacino as the grizzled homicide detective in Johnny Martin’s upcoming crime thriller Hangman. This new trailer doesn’t make clear exactly what Pacino did – whether he missed a vowel or consonant in the child’s game of the title, or maybe something worse – but victims are hanging around all over town. Set to the tune of “House of the Rising Sun,” the trailer introduces us to Pacino’s homicide detective Ray Archer and…

Al Pacino Plays a Detective in First Trailer for 'Hangman' Crime Thriller

"We're gunna find this guy." A trailer has arrived for a new crime thriller titled Hangman, which is about detectives hunting a serial killer, but apparently it even has some similarities to Paranormal Activity. Say what? From director Johnny Martin (of this year's Vengeance: A Love Story) the crime thriller stars Al Pacino as a homicide detective who teams up with a criminal profiler to catch a serial killer whose crimes are inspired by the children's game Hangman. Also starring Karl Urban, Brittany Snow, Sarah Shahi, and Joe Anderson. From the footage in this trailer, this seems closer to "Mindhunter" or "True Detective" or even The Snowman than most crime dramas, but maybe there's a big twist in it. Might be worth a look. Here's the first full-length trailer (+ poster) for Johnny Martin's Hangman, direct from YouTube: Decorated homicide detective Ray Archer (Al Pacino) and his partner, criminal profiler Will Ruiney,

Nicolas Cage is on the Warpath in Vengeance: A Love Story [Trailer]

Just when I think I'm done with Nicolas Cage and his direct-to-video looking projects, one comes along that looks like it might be ok. The latest: Vengeance: A Love Story.

Based on a novel by award winning author Joyce Carol Oates, Cage stars as a police officer and gulf war veteran who, when the law fails a single mother and her daughter, takes vengeance into his own hands.

I know, it sounds so totally generic and more than a little like Man on Fire, but Cage looks a little better than usual in this one plus there's the added bonus of Don Johnson.

Directed by stuntman-turned-director Johnny Martin, I'm hoping for some good action sequences but I'd settle for a solid thriller with a performance from Cage that isn't laughable. Anything more would be [Continued ...]

First Trailer for Action Film 'Vengeance: A Love Story' with Nicolas Cage

"Leave us alone!" FilmRise has debuted an official trailer for a new action film titled Vengeance: A Love Story, adapted from the Joyce Carol Oates novel titled Rape: A Love Story. The story is about a local police officer who goes for vengeance when a local gang rapes a woman. The criminals find a way to walk away free thanks to a hot shot lawyer, and so the detective takes matters into his own hands. Nicolas Cage stars as John Dromoor, with a cast including Anna Hutchison, Talitha Bateman, Deborah Kara Unger, Don Johnson, Joshua Mikel, Rocco Nugent, Joe Ochterbeck, Carter Burch, and Charlene Tilton. This looks like a generic vengeance movie, especially with Nicolas Cage, but who knows. It's also interesting they removed the word "rape" from any description of this film, but it's definitely a major part of the plot. Here's the first trailer (+ new poster) for Johnny Martin

‘Vengeance: A Love Story’ Trailer: Nicolas Cage Wants Justice

Another random Nicolas Cage movie has arrived, though this time around it has some real literary flavor. “Vengeance: A Love Story” is based on the provocatively titled novel “Rape: A Love Story” by Joyce Carol Oates. But the cinematic translation winds up playing more or less like what you’d expect from latter day Cage.

Originally slated to direct, the actor passed the duties onto longtime second unit and stunt coordinator Johnny Martin for this story about a detective who takes matters into his own hands when the perpetrators of a vicious attack on a mother and her daughter are set free.

Soft Q1 Advertising Sales for Media Conglomerates Put Networks in Tough Spot

Soft Q1 Advertising Sales for Media Conglomerates Put Networks in Tough Spot
The narrative is not pretty. Across the board at the major media conglomerates, advertising sales reported in first-quarter earnings were flat at best or down sharply from year-ago benchmarks.

Most of the majors are facing tough comparables from last year, when the presidential election cycle revved up demand and the scatter market was generally buoyant. Executives acknowledged that shaky demand in both domestic and international markets, coupled with the trend of declining live-tv ratings, made for an uphill climb.

The first-quarter results set the table for a tough round of upfront negotiations when TV ad sellers and buyers begin the annual haggle over $10 billion-plus in advance advertising commitments for the coming TV season. The first phase of that process, the network programming presentations, are underway this week in New York.

Anthony Diclemente, senior media analyst for Nomura Instinet, cited CBS, Scripps Networks Interactive and Discovery as bucking the downturn. He sees local ad demand as inevitably lower

Jeff Zucker: President Trump’s Attacks Haven’t Hurt CNN’s Brand

Jeff Zucker: President Trump’s Attacks Haven’t Hurt CNN’s Brand
President Trump’s steady stream of attacks on CNN’s credibility has not hurt the news organization’s reputation in the minds of consumers, nor has it scared away any advertisers. That was the word from CNN president Jeff Zucker and top Turner execs Thursday at a state-of-the-company luncheon presentation in Manhattan.

Zucker said CNN conducted its largest-ever brand survey last month out of a desire to gauge whether Trump’s broadsides about CNN serving up “fake news” were having a lasting impact on prospective viewers.

“There has been no diminution whatsoever in the CNN brand,” Zucker said. “It’s as strong as it’s ever been. It’s incredibly trusted and we see no impact whatsoever in all of those attacks on the CNN brand.”

Turner president David Levy said there have been no advertiser pullouts, either. CNN has seen its ad revenue spike along with ratings as the public continues to remain heavily engaged in

Vengeance: A Love Story, 2017.

Directed by Johnny Martin.

Starring Nicolas Cage, Don Johnson, Deborah Kara Unger, Anna Hutchison, Talitha Bateman.

Synopsis:

A gulf war veteran seeks vengeance against those who assaulted a single mother.

Vengeance opens by showing us the questionable judgement of Detective John Dromoor (Nicolas Cage) as a bust goes terribly wrong. Drinking away his troubles, Dromoor meets Teena Maguire (Anna Hutchison) in the bar. She’s introduced as a single mom who is a bit too flirtatious and easy with strangers. After coming on to the Detective, he is all but smitten with her. We see more character development with a Fourth of July party where Teena continues to act like a slut, embarrassing her twelve-year-old daughter Bethie Maguire (Talitha Bateman). We see Teena heading home from the party with her daughter and taking a short cut through the woods (that’s a brilliant idea mom!). This

Nicolas Cage: examining his straight-to-dvd movies

Kirsten Howard Feb 24, 2017

Last year we watched ten of the recent straight-to-dvd films of Mr Nicolas Cage. Since then, he's made six more...

This article has been updated to include six new films: Dog Eat Dog, The Trust, USS Indianapolis: Men Of Courage, Southern Fury, Army Of One and Vengeance: A Love Story.

The first Nicolas Cage movie I saw wasn’t one of the cool ones. It wasn’t Wild At Heart, Raising Arizona or even Valley Girl. It was the Cher rom-com, Moonstruck.
