Murder’s On The Menu For Katherine Heigl In New Home Sweet Hell Trailer

Since becoming America’s Sweetheart across the span of about four rom-coms, Katherine Heigl’s stock hasn’t exactly plummeted. Then again, it’s not been on the rise. Instead, it’s hovered indecisively while she committed to NBC’s latest drama, State Of Affairs. Whether she’s heading back to TV for the long haul or just waiting for a new movie direction, her performance in Home Sweet Hell hints at future in B-movies.

Directed by Anthony Burns (Skateland), the film stars Heigl as obsessive compulsive housewife, Mona, who makes her husband’s existence a living hell after she discovers he’s been unfaithful. Her poor spouse, a long-suffering furniture salesman named Don (Patrick Wilson), isn’t subjected to the normal ranting and raving of a wronged woman. Instead, Mona forces him to kill his pregnant mistress (Jordana Brewster), otherwise… well, if she’s making him commit homicide, then

Dark Was The Night Scores Domestic Distribution

Monster films seem to be having a nice little comeback. We seem to be venturing away from the “Grindhouse” homage films, the torture porn films and the other tropes the genre got stuck in. A film that is on my radar is Dark Was The Night, which was adapted from a screenplay that was on The Blacklist a few years back. We just got word that we shouldn’t have to wait too long to see this flick starring Kevin Durand (The Strain) and Lukas Haas (Lady in White, Inception, Brick). Read below for the official word. We’ve also included a trailer that was posted last year for the film.

Things get interesting, so to speak, when his wife decides to kill the tricky vixen. Watch? Here's the first red band trailer for Anthony Burns' Home Sweet Hell, originally from Yahoo: Home Sweet Hell is directed by Anthony Burns (Skateland) and written by relatively unknown writers Carlo Allen, Tom Lavagnino and Ted Elrick.

2014 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Anthony Burns’ North of Hell

We were big fans of Anthony Burns’ debut film, the visually strong coming-of-ager sans pretension and a nod to the Dazed and Confused sorts with just the right character set. Skateland deserved a little more fanfare than the one it got back in 2011, but Burns round two North of Hell, should receive a lot more fanfare with its cast alone. Pitting Patrick Wilson, Jordana Brewster, Kevin McKidd with Katherine Heigl, this dramedy began shooting in March-ish of this year…so we’re banking on this being already prepped for festival season.

Ashley Greene Replaces Anna Kendrick In Zach Braff Kickstarter

More Anna Kendrick casting news has come in today, although this time she is out rather than in. Seems like her schedule has become a little too full with all her recent casting announcements as she will no longer be starring in Zach Braff’s kickstarter project Wish I Was Here. The role has been taken over by her former Twilight co-star Ashley Greene. In the last few weeks Kendrick has joined projects including musical adaption The Last Five Years, Disney’s live fairy tale adaptation Into The Woods and just today she was announced as starring in the zombie comedy Life After Beth alongside Aubrey Plaza and Dane Dehaan.

Here’s what Braff himself had to say about the swap:

“We’ve tried our hardest, but we’ve been unable to figure out the lovely Anna Kendrick’s scheduling conflicts with another movie she’s doing. This happens all the time in movie-land.

New Photos Of Brit Marling, Ellen Page & Alexander Skarsgård In 'The East'

Actor/writer Brit Marling and director/writer Zal Batmanglij -- the creative team behind the smart little indie "The Sound Of My Voice" -- are just getting started, but their sophomore effort is about to arrive and it's hopefully the second chapter in a long line of collaborations. The duo employ genre elements and then turn them on their sides with an independent, character-driven perspective and the results, so far, have been certainly worthwhile. The premise of their latest, "The East," is super intriguing as well and centers on an operative for an elite private intelligence firm (Marling) who is tasked with infiltrating an anarchist group known for executing covert attacks upon major corporations. However, personal conflicts arise when she integrates into the group and begins to fall for one of its charismatic members. Starring Marling, Ellen PageAlexander Skarsgård, Toby Kebbell ("RocknRolla") and Shiloh Fernandez ("Skateland,""Red Riding...
