Exclusive Interview: Stephen Lang lands on TERRA NOVA

The characters in TERRA NOVA, which airs on Fox Mondays at 8 PM, have it rough. They’ve left behind the crowded, airless, polluted world of 2049 for the environs of Earth, circa 80 million years BC. There is fresh air and plentiful food, but there are also people-eating dinosaurs, power struggles and a supremely tough military man in charge, Commander Nathaniel Taylor, played by Stephen Lang. Lang (should anyone need reminding) also played badass baddie Col. Miles Quaritch in AVATAR, the most successful motion picture ever made. He was also the villain in this year’s remake of CONAN THE BARBARIAN, a …Read On »

Not many characters survived the bloodshed of SCREAM 4, but Deputy Judy Hicks (played by Marley Shelton) managed to come out okay and ready for future SCREAM movies.

The film, directed by Wes Craven who helmed the previous three movies, just hit Blu-ray and DVD and the actress spoke with ASSIGNMENT X in this exclusive interview about her role in the film and wanting to return for more.

It’s rare for a filmmaker to helm all four installments in a movie franchise, but like Steven Spielberg did with the INDIANA JONES franchise, Wes Craven has matched that record with SCREAM. SCREAM 4, the latest chapter, hits DVD and Blu-ray this week as it reunites the surviving cast members from the previous three movies – Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette as they confronts the nefarious Ghost Face killer one more time as he (or she or more) terrorizes the quaint small town of Woodsboro. ASSIGNMENT X recently spoke with Wes Craven in this exclusive interview about the …Read On »

Movie Review: ABDUCTION

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Taylor Lautner, Lily Collins, Alfred Molina, Jason Isaacs, Maria Bello, Sigourney Weaver, Denzel Whitaker, Michael Nyqvist Writer: Shawn Christensen Director: John Singleton Distributor: Lionsgate Release Date: September 23, 2011 ABDUCTION feels so much like an adaptation of a young adult novel that it’s surprising to see that the script is an original (okay, according to the production notes, it’s based on an un-screen-credited idea by executive producer Jeremy Bell) by Shawn Christensen. Indeed, Christensen turns the original premise, and the title, into something of a red herring. There’s a sense of familiarity about the film, but it’s …Read On »
