    It's still many months away, but the 2015 Texas Frightmare Weekend is already heating up with an impressive guest list. Next year marks TFW's 10th anniversary, and they're pulling all the stops. This latest announcement is the biggest yet!



    Neve Campbell, famous for her role as Sidney Prescott in the Scream films, will be making her first appearance ever at a convention at next year's Texas Frightmare Weekend. As is the TFW tradition, she'll be available all weekend long for autographs, photos, and panels.

    The actress, known also for The Craft, has never done a convention before so this will be the first time fans will be able to meet her in person whilst in the world of Horror.

    After Drew Barrymore turned down the role as Sidney Prescott for the smaller role of Casey, Neve became the lead in 1996's Scream. In many interviews since her debut as Sidney, she had reservations about being known as a Scream Queen, but in recent years she seems to have finally embraced the title.

    Neve joins the already announced list that includes Tara Reid, Josh (The Collection) Stewart, C. Thomas Howell, Malcolm McDowell, Joseph ("Game of Thrones") Gatt, and a first-time pairing of I Spit on Your Grave lead Camille Keaton and director Meir Zarchi with MANY more to come.

    The 10th anniversary Texas Frightmare Weekend will be at the DFW Hyatt Regency in Dallas, Texas, running May 1-3, 2015.

    "Early bird" rates have already come and gone, but the much-coveted PREMIUM passes go on sale on Saturday, September 6th, at 11:00 am CT. There are only 300 of these sold every year, and they sell out almost immediately. The benefits to this pass are huge so keep an eye on TexasFrightmareWeekend.com for details to grab those premium passes on the 6th!

    Sigourney Weaver and Jamie Lee Curtis have also had their first appearances at Horror Conventions in the past year.

    Last Halloween, Neve made an appearance with Robin Tunney and Rachel True for a reunion of The Craft. Fairuza Balk did not appear.

In 1931 Cuba, Nucky joins Sally Wheet (Patricia Arquette) and, with a U.S. Senator in tow, forges ties with Bacardi Rum in hopes of Prohibition’s repeal in the U.S. Working on Wall Street, Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) finds herself in the hot seat when her boss, facing an internal investigation, decides his own future. Down but never out, Chalky (Michael Kenneth Williams) seizes an opportunity to extricate himself from a difficult situation.

Fresh out of law school, Willie Thompson (Ben Rosenfield) has a job interview. Rebuffed by a group of would-be financiers, Nucky dines with Tonino Sandrelli (Chris Caldovino) before sending a message to Lansky (Anatol Yusef) and Luciano (Vincent Piazza).

    The celebrity nude photo leak scandal has reached a boiling point ... and now the FBI is getting involved.

    In a statement released Monday afternoon, a spokesperson for the FBI said, "The FBI is aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals, and is addressing the matter. Any further comment would be inappropriate at this time."



    Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton -- the two most prominent names in the leak -- have both expressed interest in pursuing legal action in the matter.

    An Apple spokesperson told Recode.net they are "active investigating" whether or not their iCloud system was hacked as part of this leak.

    Kirsten Dunst became the latest celeb featured in the leak to comment via Twitter, placing the blame squarely on Apple's shoulders (while also acknowledging the photos are real). She simply wrote, "Thank you iCloud."

    After CeeLo Green pleaded no contest Friday to one felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a woman during a 2012 dinner in Los Angeles, the singer voiced his opinion over the matter online Sunday in a series of questionable Tweets.

    In posts later deleted from his account but preserved elsewhere, the "Fuck You" singer and former The Voice coach tweeted, "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!"

    "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent," he added, among other posts, engaging with fans over the issues of his felony case.

    Later, Green deleted the tweets and admitted to doing so when asked, saying, "yes I did. I will not allow that negative energy to loiter on my time line u still got it so keep it! I'm deleting this too"

    Monday, Green returned to Twitter with a cooler head, posting an apology that his comments were "taken so far out of context" and stating "I'd never condone the harm of any women."

    Let me 1st praise god for exoneration fairness & freedom! Secondly I sincerely apologize for my comments being taken so far out of context.

    — CeeLo Green (@CeeLoGreen) September 1, 2014

    I only intended on a healthy exchange to help heal those who love me from the pain I had already caused from this. Please forgive me as it..

    — CeeLo Green (@CeeLoGreen) September 1, 2014

    ...was your support that got me thru this to begin with. I'd never condone the harm of any women. Thank you.

    It could be argued that all of Lars von Trier's efforts are "without precedent": singular visions from the mind of a filmmaker truly like no other. Because really, who else would've put together a five-and-a-half hour epic about a sex addict that starts with the woman being found beaten in an alley? And even as von Trier closes the book on "Nymphomaniac," with director's cuts of both volumes screening for the first time together at the Venice Film Festival, he's got another big project on the way.

    The director —who vowed never to speak to the press again following his Nazi comment controversy at the Cannes Film Festival— appeared via video link at Venice over the weekend during the press conference for "Nymphomaniac Vol II — Director's Cut" (check out three NSFW new clips here) and revealed his next project. Sort of. He didn't say anything (though at one point Stellan Skarsgard held up a sign that said "lifeline" and called von Trier on his cellphone to help answer a question, relaying what the director said) but the filmmaker's producer Louise Vesth did reveal what was next from the provocateur. (lol!)

    “Now, when he’s not able to speak, so he cannot say that it’s not true, I’m happy to announce that the next Lars von Trier project will be a TV series in the English language," she said. "He has a really really good idea which I cannot tell more about right now. He wants a huge cast and from what I heard, I’m sure that it will be something that you have never seen before and you will definitely never see again.”

    The series will be called "The House That Jack Built," and producer Peter Aalbæk Jensen adds that the show will be “without precedent” and warned that “you better hold your breath.” The plan is to bring together a big international cast, and of course, plots details aren't being revealed due to von Trier still writing the script, with filming only to begin in 2016.

    It would seem this project would be leapfrogging projects discussed earlier this year including an "action movie" and a horror film script titled "Detroit" (though it was unclear if he was going to helm the latter). Either way, we're eagerly awaiting whatever von Trier does next, particularly as his last venture into television was the excellent and twisted "The Kingdom." What more could von Trier have up his sleeve? We'll have to wait and see.

    It's OK Lars,
    So what do you think he's going to do, based on the style of his films?

    Nicki Minaj might be one of the most annoying people on earth, but you’ve got to give credit where credit is due: She has amazing taste in bodyguards. Last night at the VMAs, Nicki walked the red carpet with none other than gay porn star Kevin Falk.
    In case you somehow forgot, Kevin Falk is the seriously underused and, in my opinion, criminally underappreciated gay porn star who was around from about 2008 to 2011. The Swedish hunk was enormous and perfect in literally every single way possible, and he performed as both a top and bottom in dozens of hardcore gay porn scenes. He’s since gone on to become a bodybuilder/model and, apparently, someone in charge of protecting Nicki Minaj. If Nicki didn’t know about her bodyguard’s gay porn past before, she’ll hopefully find out now. And then, she’ll hopefully finally do one thing right and realize that she should take advantage of everything he has to offer…

    Fifty-three years after IBM programmed the first singing computer, Apple's voice-activated personal assistant Siri might be teaming up with Madonna for an unapologetic collaboration.

    Fueled by Madonna's increasing use of #UnapologeticBitch on her Instagram, fans are speculating that's the title of the first single from her upcoming 13th album. And as Digital Spy points out, searching for "Unapologetic Bitch" via Siri produces a surprising result.

    If you ask Siri to look up "Unapologetic bitch" on an iPhone or iPad, it takes you directly to Madonna's Wikipedia page -- which does NOT feature the words "unapologetic bitch" together. In fact, it doesn't feature the word "bitch" at all, and "unapologetic" appears just once in the lengthy Wiki entry.

    Compare that to searching for "Unapologetic bitch" using a voice-activated assistant on an Android or another phone -- it just takes you to a generic Google search results page.</b>

    So either Siri is a closet Madonna fan, or Madge and Apple have teamed up in some fashion.

    Might this mean Siri is a featured voice on Madonna's new album? Or does this simply indicate a business connection with Apple, similar to Beyonce making her self-titled album available exclusively on iTunes for one week?

    The hacker, who is responsible for leaking several nude images of A-List celebs, has threatened to release more intimate pics of Jennifer Lawrence after he was forced to go on the run from FBI agents.

    The hacker, referred to by other posters as the 'Original Guy', said he had fled his hideout fearing the net was closing in on him as the international manhunt got underway and that he would reveal more of the stolen images and videos in return for online bitcoin donations from those willing to pay to see, the Mirror reported.



    The 24-year-old Oscar winner is one of several stars to have reported the stolen images to the authorities which sparked a global hunt for the hacker and more images of her and Downton Abbey actress Jessica Brown Findlay are said to be included in the new batch.

    A FBI source said that whenever anyone steals information from another computer or device there is a trail left behind and agents have a long and proven record of bringing those responsible to justice and they are confident they will get their man or woman, and that it is a disgraceful breach of privacy, the likes of which we have never seen before.

    On Sunday hundreds of pictures and videos were leaked on to the Internet of 101 celebrities including supermodel Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Selena Gomez and Glee star Lea Michele.

    Some Reddit Comments:









    I really hope they catch him and whoever else is behind this. And quickly.

    Move over, Proactiv: Dr. Demi Lovato is coming for the crown in the skincare world.

    Her newly announced line, called Devonne By Demi,, and was developed out of Demi’s own passion for skincare. “Ever since I was a young girl, I have always been about skincare for some reason. When you take time to do things for yourself like care for your skin, you feel the most confident,” she explained to People.

    The newly launched site shows off the 3-step line of sweet lemon and peppermint-scented products (yum!), which were developed “as the perfection companion to her on-the-go lifestyle.” But it’s not just a line of products: Proceeds from the products will go to the Lovato Treatment Scholarship, which supports recovery programs for young women.

    As an outspoken advocate of self-empowerment, Demi’s also hoping this line of products will help to boost confidence: “I am trying to help young girls and women all over the world love and accept themselves when they look in the mirror. I can guarantee that if you take care of your skin and use products that work, you’ll find that confidence.”

    The skincare line is due to hit shelves in December. Will you be trying Devonne By Demi?

    Telluride Review: Josh Hutcherson Flees Menacing Benicio Del Toro in Solid B-Movie 'Escobar: Paradise Lost'


    The legacy of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, who reached the height of his cocaine-smuggling power in the eighties running a multimillion dollar cartel operation, is obvious fodder for the movies. Though Escobar surrendered to authorities in 1991, escaped a year later and was killed in a firefight shortly afterward, his luxurious career provides many access points, as demonstrated by the recent spate of Escobar projects: In addition to a 2012 Colombian mini-series, contemporary efforts to explore Escobar's life include the upcoming production of the black list screenplay "The Ballad of Pablo Escobar," starring John Leguizamo in the title role, and the tense, well-acted "Escobar: Paradise Lost," which features Benicio Del Toro.

    The latter movie, the directorial debut of Italian director Andrea Di Stefano, confronts the challenge of representing Escobar's legacy in a unique fashion — by making him a supporting character.

    Which is not to say that Del Toro, an actor whose steely-eyed gaze fits the part, doesn't get the chance to relish his opportunity. Exclusively portraying Escobar during the later stages of his career when he already commanded unassailable authority, Del Toro turns Escobar into a subdued terror whose ability to order murders with ease provides the movie with its chief source of dread. Rather than regurgitate Escobar's entire saga, however, Di Stefano centers the story around a fictionalized account involving young Canadian Nico (Josh Hutcherson) who inadvertently falls into the criminal's crosshairs after falling in love with his niece (Claudia Traisac).

    Though initially warm to his potential in-law, Escobar ultimately exploits Nico's allegiance by assigning him to aid in hiding the criminal's fortune before his incarceration. Nico's inevitable sense of uncertainty about going through with the plan, and the horrific outcome of his decision, forms the crux of the movie's taut, suspenseful third act. While "Escobar" simplifies its subject's exploits, leaving the details of his smuggling operation out of the picture, it achieves a more immediate effect by rendering the fear of Escobar's power in visceral B-movie terms that makes them relatable. Di Stefano's memorable debut feature makes up for its lack of sophistication with constant forward motion.

    Opening in the summer of 1991, "Escobar" begins with Nico being called into the cartel's hideout and tasked with committing a murder on the drug lord's behalf. Speeding off on his mission along the dark road and hardly able to keep his breath, Nico is stuck in a conundrum that only becomes clear as Di Stefano flashes back to years earlier. Arriving on the Colombian coast to run a surf camp with his eager brother (Brady Corbet), Nico meets the smarmy Maria (Traisac), and quickly falls for her. The sunny beaches provide a notable visual contrast to the murkier scenes that follow, as Nico gradually realizes the extent of Escobar's power. At social gatherings, Escobar's domineering personality leaves Nico in a confused state about his priorities.

    These scenes unfold with a steadily developing sense of unease, and while they state the rising tides of danger a little too obviously — Nico glimpsing pools of blood at Escobar's estate, begging Maria to let them to go home — his frustration helps to set up a concluding series of events far more cohesive than the moments leading up to them.

    In the deftly assembled final act, as Nico attempts to go through with Escobar's orders and then evade his gun-wielding forces from every direction, Nico launches a desperate survival mission that works on its own terms. Di Stefano's penchant for elegant, visually-driven suspense comes out in a prolonged chase sequence that finds the frantic Nico hiding in small areas, stealing a car, and contemplating whether or not to pull the trigger in more than one dire situation.

    Hutcherson imbues the character with a believability that transcends the script's limitations. The actor's supporting gig in the "Hunger Game" movies hasn't provided him with sufficient material to show his range, but "Escobar" gives him with another shot, following noteworthy turns in "The Kids Are Alright" and "Detention." His roles in those movies bear little resemblance to the wide-eyed survivor on display here.

    Still, it's Del Toro who manages the strongest achievement, imbuing Escobar with a creepy blend of charm and cruelty as he peers out from above a scrappy beard and orders death with ease. Short of his forgettable turn in "The Wolfman," this is the actor's first genuine monster role.

    With its contained narrative, "Escobar" fails to develop the rest of its characters as well as it does for its two central men. Corbet, in a handful of scenes, hardly gets the chance to do much aside from looking terrified in a handful of fleeting scenes; Traisac, as Nico's girlfriend, morphs from an individualistic figure in her earlier bits to an underwritten part as Nico's teary-eyed support system. The screenplay is similarly marred by formula, lagging whenever it hits certain high melodramatic notes, and reminding us of the stakes in play with mopey, dime-store gravitas.

    But all is forgiven thanks to the gripping climax, in which the identity of Nico's assailant matters less than his impact on the young man in the moment as he struggles to get away. Even as Escobar offers himself to the authorities, one henchman delivers the menacing prognosis that "no one escapes from Pablo Escobar," a threat that over the course of Di Stefano's movie transforms into a compelling challenge. Consider Escobar's ongoing legacy, the jury is out on whether the grim assessment remains true.

    Grade: B

    "Escobar: Paradise Lost" premiered this weekend at the Telluride Film Festival and will next play at the Toronto International Film Festival. Radius-TWC will release it on November 26.

    The Telluride International Film Festival is done for another year (read all our coverage here), and though the Venice Film Festival has some big movies still yet to unspool, it too is starting to wind down (catch up with our ongoing coverage here). Which can only mean one thing: it's time to head north for the Toronto International Film Festival.


    Cannes, Berlin and Venice might have the cinephile prestige, but TIFF is rapidly making an argument for being the biggest film festival in the world, with huge movies being unveiled and more to watch than you could ever hope to see. As we're sure you're aware by now, it's also become an increasingly crucial Oscar launching pad: every Best Picture winner since "No Country For Old Men" has been featured at the festival.


    We're just 24 hours away from the festival kicking off, and the Playlist team are heading to Toronto as we speak. So to get you ready, we've picked out fifteen gems from the line-up (all world premieres, so the below excludes some of the films that already bowed at Cannes, Venice or Telluride) that we're particularly excited about. Take a look below, let us know what you're excited about, and bookmark this link here for all our coverage over the next couple of weeks.

    000
    "Love & Mercy"
    Synopsis: The story of Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson, and his struggle with addiction and mental illness, told across two time periods.
    What You Need To Know: Generally speaking, the idea of another potentially bland music biopic is one that makes our heart sink, and yet "Love & Mercy" is one of our most anticipated films of the festival. In part, it's because of the subject matter: Brian Wilson has always been one of pop's most fascinating figures, and rather than attempting to span an entire life, the approach here seems to be focused on his sessions with a controversial therapist. In part, it's because of an excellent cast assembled: Paul Dano plays the young Wilson, and John Cusack the older, with Paul Giamatti and Elizabeth Banks among the supporting players. And furthermore, there's a lot of strong behind-the-scenes talent involved: Oren Moverman co-wrote the script, Wes Anderson DoP Robert Yeoman shot the film, "The Social Network" co-Oscar winner Atticus Ross is scoring, and though director Bill Pohlad —making his sophomore feature— is known more as a producer, he's got great taste, having been partly behind films like "Brokeback Mountain," "The Tree Of Life" and "12 Years A Slave." Our hopes are high that this is much more than just cursory look at one of rock 'n roll's most complex figures.
    When? No distribution yet, but this could be a hot buy if it looks like it has awards potential.


    000
    "Men Women & Children"
    Synopsis: A group of parents and children grapple with love, lust, intimacy and self-esteem in the internet age.
    What You Need To Know: The Reitman family have a long association with TIFF (they are big contributors to many initiatives of the fest), and as such, all of Jason Reitman's features bar "Young Adult" have screened there. Last year's "Labor Day" was deemed to be Reitman's first major misfire by pretty much everyone, but the four films that preceded it showed such an assured ability to mix comedy and drama that we'll always be paying attention to what he's got coming, and "Men Women & Children" is no different. The director's first true ensemble piece, it's an adaptation of a novel by Chad Kultgen, and appears to be closer to Todd Solondz than, say, Billy Wilder, focusing on sexuality in the internet era, and with a clever "Sherlock"-esque visual twist. Unlikely TIFF double-biller Adam Sandler leads the cast, and Reitman's usual canny sense of casting looks to be in full force, with a mix of fast-rising newcomers (Ansel Elgort, Kaitlyn Dever), big stars (Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Emma Thomson,), and undersung character actors (Judy Greer, Rosemarie DeWitt, Dean Norris). There's a risk with subject matter like this that it comes off as a bit pat and obvious (if the theme is "technology brings us together, but it also, like, keeps us further apart," we might tear the seats up), but we trust this content Reitman's hands, and hope it resonants more than the recent "Disconnect."
    When? Premieres at TIFF on Saturday, then Paramount will open it on October 3rd.


    000
    "Miss Julie"
    Synopsis: In late 19th century, an aristocrat's daughter attempts to seduce a servant.
    What You Need To Know: August Strindberg's "Miss Julie" is one of the most enduringly popular and most performed plays in the European canon, and has been filmed a number of times before (perhaps most notably as Mike Figgis' 1999 take with Peter Mullan and Saffron Burrows). But the talent involved has rarely been as enticing as it is here. Bergman muse-turned-filmmaker Liv Ullman has written and directed the new version, which moves the play from Sweden to Ireland, and Jessica Chastain takes the title role, with Colin Farrell as the target of her affections, and Samantha Morton as Farrell's fiance. It's a difficult play to translate to screen, and the new setting might be a little 'Downton'-ish for our tastes, but if anyone can capture the shifting power dynamics of the original, it's Ullman, and the chance to see Chastain (who was a celebrated stage actress before she made her name in the movies) tear into a role like this one is worth the price of admission, or even a flight to Toronto, on its own.
    When? No U.S. release date or distribution yet, but the film opens in France on September 10th, only ten days after it hits TIFF.


    000
    "Nightcrawler"
    Synopsis: A drifter looking for work stumbles into the world of freelance crime photography, becoming a "nightcrawler," who races to the scenes of accidents or murders in order to sell footage to local TV stations.
    What You Need To Know; With "Source Code," "End Of Watch," "Prisoners" and "Enemy" arriving onscreen in the last few years, Jake Gyllenhaal's been on a hell of a run, and hopes are high that it'll continue with his latest character-driven noir "Nightcrawler." Looking somewhat like a sort of present-day blend of "Taxi Driver" and "Network," the film marks the directorial debut of Dan Gilroy, brother of "Michael Clayton" helmer Tony, and co-screenwriter of "Real Steel" and "The Bourne Legacy," among others. Given the success his big brother had with his first directorial outing (multiple Oscar nods, one of the best American movies of the '00s), hopes are high that the younger Gilroy can match it, and what we've seen of "Nightcrawler" so far looks very impressive, with what looks from trailers to be the most transformative performance from Gyllenhaal so far, the actor having lost significant weight for the turn. He's joined by a promising supporting cast including Riz Ahmed, Rene Russo and Bill Paxton, and Gilroy seem to have a Michael Mann-ish capability to capture L.A at night. Obviously, we're only working off trailers, but word from those who have seen it already is good, so this could turn out to be one of the edgier highlights of the festival.
    When? After TIFF, the film will close Fantastic Fest, before Open Road bring it to theaters on October 31st.

    "The Theory Of Everything"
    Synopsis: The early life of Stephen Hawking, a dominant figure in theoretical physics who battled motor neuron disease to make discoveries that changed the way we think about the universe, and his romance with university colleague Jane.
    What You Need To Know: Arguably the most famous scientist in the world, Stephen Hawking's story has been brought to the screen before (Benedict Cumberbatch played him in a television film a decade ago), but "The Theory Of Everything" marks the first time the story's made it to the big screen, and has some hefty names behind it: an adaptation of Hawking's ex-wife Jane's memoirs "Travelling To Infinity," it's backed by "Atonement" producers Working Title and is helmed by Oscar-winning "Man On Wire" and "Shadow Dancer" helmer James Marsh. Fast-rising stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones are already touted for awards as Hawking and Jane, while the top-notch supporting cast also includes Charlie Cox, Emily Watson, Simon McBurney, David Thewlis and Harry Lloyd. We'll be honest: the trailers for this one so far have made it appear a bit traditional and sentimental as far as biopics go, but Marsh is an interesting and unconventional choice for the project, and it's his involvement that gives us faith that we're in for something more interesting than what we're being sold.
    When? After TIFF, Focus will give it an awards-friendly release on November 7th.

    This is their last appearance for the Salute album so hopefully that's the end of the tribal imagery mess.

    A Prison Break reunion is coming to TV this fall — on The Flash, that is.

    Dominic Purcell has boarded The CW comic-book drama as a DC Comics villain, reuniting with his Prison Break co-star Wentworth Miller in the 10th episode, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. This marks the first time Purcell and Miller, who played brothers Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield, will have appeared together since Prison Break ended in 2009.

    Purcell will play Mick Rory, a pyromaniac who finds an outlet for his obsession with fire when he teams up with Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Miller) and becomes the villain known as Heat Wave. Miller was cast in The Flash back in July and makes his debut in episode four. Purcell's character will also be heard from in that same episode.

    The Flash premieres Oct. 7 on The CW.
