Watch: 'Alita: Battle Angel' Trailer Finally Realizes James Cameron's Dream Project
For many years, James Cameron wanted to adapt Battle Angel Alita, the 1990 manga series created by Yukito Kishiro about an amnesiac android. A few years ago, he and Fox finally got the dream project going with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez at the helm, and now it's actually been realized. The first trailer for the movie, titled Alita: Battle Angel, has arrived teasing a sci-fi action spectacular. This seems like a cross between The Bourne Identity and AI movies like Ex Machina, but with Cameron's work on the script combined with Rodriguez's vision as a director, it is very promising. The title heroine, obviously designed to resemble a manga/anime character, is unlike anything we've seen in a live-action movie before. Like most Cameron...

The Last Horror Blog: New 'Halloween' Mood; Watch 'Day of the Dead: Bloodline' Trailer
Danny McBride says new Halloween will capture the mood of the original – I’m not entirely sold on David Gordon Green and Danny McBride’s new Halloween film, and considering how the franchise has been handled over the past four decades, that’s probably a fair position to take. It’s not that I don’t want to love new Halloween movies, it’s that the body of work in the past 40 years inspires a lot of skepticism. That being said, McBride and Green seem to have a distinct vision in mind for their new film – and are clearly inspired by Carpenter’s original. McBride elaborated in a recent interview: "The original is all about tension," McBride says. "Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) doesn’t even know that...
