Harald Zwart to direct a family-oriented horror film for Blumhouse

Whether you are a fan of the micro-budget horror films of Blumhouse Productions (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, THE PURGE, etc), you have to admit that they have found a business model that works. So, as they branch out into other genres and markets, we shouldn't be surprised to see them try some new things. Sticking with the horror genre, Jason Blum's shingle will try something they have not done...

The Purge 3 will provide more government-sanctioned murder on July 1, 2016

It looks like THE PURGE won't be an annual event after all. The original film was released in 2013 and its sequel in 2014. Now another sequel is on its way and Universal has set the third installment of the franchise for a 2016 release. I was very let down by the first movie; the cool premise wasn’t utilized well enough and the plot holes were deep. THE PURGE: ANARCHY was...

JoBlo Visits Blumhouse Where Jason Blum Announces Anthology Book

Halloween is finally here! Leave it to Blumhouse Productions to continue to make their presence known on this haunted holiday. Last night, with a gathering of a small group of on-line writers, Jason Blum and the fine people of Blumhouse invited us on a tour of their offices for an announcement to finish off the night. Collaborating with Doubleday and Vintage Books, the production...

Run and hide because The Purge 3 is officially happening

Hide your wife and hide your kids, there is going to be another installment in THE PURGE franchise. While I havenít seen THE PURGE: ANARCHY, I have heard a lot of good things about it. That being said, if youíre comparing it to the incredible waste that was the original movie then Iím sure itís watchable. One of the coolest concepts in years was drilled with so many plot holes and...

Frank Grillo takes the lead for horror sequel The Purge 2

Rising star Frank Grillo has taken the lead in writer/director James DeMonaco 's THE PURGE 2, which is set to go into production shortly. DeMonaco is once again at the helm of the sequel, which follows on the massive success of this year's THE PURGE, which starred Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey and made a worldwide cume of $90 million from a $3 million budget. So, yeah, not rocket...

Release dates for George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road and The Purge 2

A couple of release dates for two upcoming films have been announced, and both are a little surprising. The first one is for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD and it comes from Deadline : the George Miller film will hit theaters on May 15th, 2015 . Many assumed the movie would be in theaters sometime in 2014, but possibly because of the recent reshoots , it looks like we won't be seeing...

This Week in Blu-ray / DVD Releases: The Hangover Part III, The Purge, After Earth ...

This week: One last road trip with the Wolf Pack, the grim aftertaste of After Earth, and horror goodies galore: ► It didn’t much matter that THE HANGOVER PART III was considerably better than Part 2, the damage was done. Apparently feeling burned last time watching the exact same movie as the...

Least surprising news of the day: Plans for The Purge 2 already in the works

Before the full weekend box office report was released I saw that THE PURGE had pulled in over $16 million alone on Friday and instantly thought to myself, "How long is it going to be before a sequel is announced?" Well today I got my answer. The Wrap is reporting that Universal and Blumhouse Productions are already developing a sequel to the surprise hit. Blumhouse also...

Review: The Purge

PLOT: A family must fend off a gang of psychopaths in a future where the U.S. government has sanctioned one night a year to be completely lawless - anyone can commit any crime they please. REVIEW: The biggest problem with THE PURGE has been apparent since the trailers first arrived: the filmmakers have taken a truly fascinating premise and done little more with it than...

Poster Dump for Man of Steel, The Bling Ring, Nymphomaniac, and The Purge

We've got a bunch of new poster for you today. Are they all good? Meh. I think the MAN OF STEEL poster is a gimme because its Superman. The one for THE BLING RING is sort of generic. There's not much but a familiar warning on THE PURGE poster. Then we have this minimalist one for NYMPHOMANIAC. Yeah, it wins. Accompanied with the line "Forget About Love"-- hands down. As far as the actual...

Trailer, poster, and images for The Purge, starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey

Formerly titled VIGILANDIA, the new thriller THE PURGE, poses the premise that one night a year you can commit any crime (crimes?) you want within a 12 hour timespan, which is meant to do...well, I don't know what.  It basically serves the purpose of not allowing the police to interfere with a movie plot, which is basically another home invasion pic like THE STRANGERS or the upcoming...

2013 Universal Pictures Movie Preview!

I love this time of year mostly because it's a "fresh start" to the new year in movies. To that end, we'll be presenting all of the top studios' 2013 movie previews right here, including a picture from each film (if a photo is available), its release date, the plot synopsis along with our basic THUMBS UP ( we want to see this! ), THUMBS DOWN ( we do not want to see this! ) or QUESTION...
