An exclusive one-sheet is here from Seth Grossman’s horror flick Inner Demons (review), and this one is just begging to be needled!
Look for the film in theatres and on VOD on October 3rd. Lara Vosburgh, Morgan McClellan, Kate Whitney, and Brian Flaherty star.
INNER DEMONS follows an ‘Intervention’-style reality show crew that films an episode about a sixteen-year old girl, a former A-student, who is fighting addiction but may in fact be suffering from something even more destructive: demonic possession. The movie is an inquiry into the truth about her – with symptoms that straddle the disturbing and scary intersection between insanity, addiction and true possession.

Directed by Pete Docter ("Up," "Monsters Inc."), the movie boasts an interesting premise, taking place inside the mind of an 11 year-old girl named Riley (Kaitlyn Dias). “In truth, Riley is not our main character; she is our setting,” Docter said earlier this year at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival (via Variety). He added: “It’s based on a strong emotional experience I had watching my daughter grow up. There is something that is lost when you grow up.”
Indeed, this will be one of the few movies that makes emotions actual characters, with Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Joy (Amy Poehler),...
If you’re excited to see Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar on the big screen, you may be still more excited to learn that the latest film from the Dark Knight helmer and Matthew “Alright, Alright, Alright” McConaughey will hit theaters with a large number of viewing options, and not just of the “to IMAX or not to IMAX” variety. FirstShowing has been all over the Interstellar news beat, first breaking the news that the film would hit IMAX two days early and then passing along a bevy of cool screening information once Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures officially announced the news via press release.
Interstellar officially opens on November 7th, but a slew of large format screenings will kick off on Tuesday, November 4th, with still more options rolling out on November 5th (all told, about 225 locations will offer the pre-screenings). Basically, if you want to see Interstellar early, you can totally do that, while also getting the best theatrical viewing experience possible. Not too shabby. But if you’re still not sure how to see Interstellar and what format is best, the film’s official site has provided a pretty nifty guide (one that you can use for Interstellar and beyond). Take a look.
So, yeah, all of these are great options, except the ones — oh, like IMAX 70mm Film — that are more great. Greater. Greatest. Interstellar was filmed on actual film (both 65mm IMAX and 35mm), so checking it out on film is a bit of a no-brainer.
Nolan’s latest — his first film since wrapping up the Dark Knight trilogy back in 2012 — features an all-star cast (McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck and Michael Caine), along with a bunch of literal stars. The space adventure tale will blast McConaughey, Hathaway and others off into space, thanks to a newly discovered wormhole that helps them zip through massive distances with ease. The film has provided the viewing public with plenty of trailers so far — many of which include McConaughey sobbing just, like, a lot — but the full content and plotline of the film remains purposely vague.
We know a few things for sure, like that the Earth is dying (which necessitates a journey into the beyond) and that the space travelers will eventually land somewhere that doesn’t really look like Earth (but let’s never forget any and all lessons we learned from Planet of the Apes). The particulars of what’s really happening, though, like what exactly happened to scorch the planet and how finding a distant ice world can help ease that (if we need water, how is one small spaceship going to bring it to us? or is that not what’s really going on at all? we still don’t know!), remain unclear. Still, if Nolan’s film can impress us in trailer format, just imagine what it will look like on the big, big, big screen.
If you’d like to procure your Interstellar tickets ASAP, the film’s site has provided a handy widget to do just that. What format are you planning on seeing Interstellar in (uh, assuming you’re going to see it at all, which is also a valid answer)?

When the sunshield for the James Webb Space Telescope underwent deployment testing, it unfolded exactly like it would in space. At least, it did if you ignore the people, cranes, air, warmth, gravity, and conspicuous absence of the rest of the telescope. Even so, it looks really cool, and provides an SPF one million coverage.

“Are you my master?”
Those are the words of one who is ready to fight in the next Holy Grail War. We were lucky to be in attendance at the worldwide premiere of Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works (UBW) at the Downtown Independent in Los Angeles. Announced as a full TV series, ufotable’s much anticipated adaptation of the UBW story was greeted with a lot of enthusiasm and hype among the international fans. The event was sold out within a week and people already began lining up hours before the screening.
For those who aren’t initiated, Fate/Stay Night was originally released as a highly successful visual novel in 2004 by TYPE-MOON, a Japanese game company. It tells the tale of a war fought every sixty years to win the Holy Grail, a device that would grant the winner any wish. Seven individuals (known as Masters) are selected and assigned a servant who will do battle in their stead. Fate/stay night chronicles the story of the 5th Holy Grail War and its characters across three different stories: Fate, Unlimited Blade Works, and Heaven’s Feel.
On the way into the theater, we were handed this lovely memorabilia that lists the main characters along with the other locations that the premiere was being held.
As the premiere started, audiences were first screened a short Q&A from the team at ufotable. They thanked the fans for all their support and to look forward to upcoming series. While I’m sure the majority of the viewers already know the story of fate/stay night, I’ll spare the exposition and say right off the bat that it’s gorgeous eye candy from start to finish. ufotable brought a level of quality that was rare in TV animation with fate/zero and UBW already exceeds beyond that. The subtleties of the character animation and attention to background details could have had me fooled for something with a movie budget. All that work only to end at a crucial point in the prologue definitely both filled me with disappointment and excitement for this week when the series official premieres on streaming channels.
Look forward to the series on CrunchyRoll and Hulu on October 4th.
During Tokyo Game Show, Nippon Ichi Software unveiled Disgaea 5 and announced that there would be a playable demo coming to PlayStation 4 owners.
The demo will be released on October 15th on the Japanese PlayStation store, so anyone with a Japanese PSN account can access the free demo. It will be 556 MB to download and should hold fans over until the game finally releases on March 26, 2015 in Japan. The West will get it at a later date.
Fans of Strider can look forward to next week’s release as Capcom will be releasing Strider 2 as a PSOne Classic title. This means it can be played on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation Portable and even the PlayStation TV.
Just like the original game release in 2000, Strider 2 will include the console port and the original arcade version.

In Hear This, A.V. Club writers sing the praises of songs they know well. This week, in honor of Prince’s pair of new albums, we’re picking our favorite songs from the Purple One.
The mere existence of 1986’s Under The Cherry Moon proves that after the success of the Purple Rain film and soundtrack, Prince could do whatever the fuck he wanted to do—including direct a black-and-white comedy on the Mediterranean coast. The film stars His Highness and Jerome Benton (frequent Prince team player and The Time’s version of a hype man) as American gigolos in the French Riviera who are out to make a fortune off wealthy, bored women before making their way back to Miami. Prince plays Christopher Tracy, the (supposedly) suave one, where Benton is his clownish sidekick, Tricky—though both men tax their limited acting skills by playing up the ...
It’s a question as old as time, or at least as old as cinema: What is the best way to adapt a written story for the screen? In the past century, many have fallen on this rocky road, getting knocked off course in the potholes of reducing plots to 90 minutes or casting characters in flesh-and-blood form. So given the scope of the struggle, there can be a certain level of pitying empathy in watching a film production so utterly fail at bringing a novel to life. But in the case of Peter Askin’s A Good Marriage, based on the novella by Stephen King, mustering such generosity requires far too much effort.
A Good Marriage begins with a man stalking a woman on a rainy night, set to the sounds of Francis Thompson’s late-19th century poem “The Hound Of Heaven” read in voice-over. So begins the film ...

Arthur Hailey was a critical punching bag for his entire career, and it’s tough to defend his novels strictly on the basis of literary merit. Arguably, though, fans were less interested in his plots or characters than in the excuse they provided him to explore a given milieu in painstaking detail. Just as Martin Scorsese’s Casino functions, at its best, as a fictional documentary about the inner workings of a casino, Hailey’s 1968 bestseller Airport isn’t so much about the multiple crises created by a snowstorm and a blocked runway as it is about the ...
