One year ago, Laura Barns (Heather Sossaman) committed suicide due to ridicule received over an embarrassing video of her passed out at a party. Six of her classmates were especially horrible in their treatment of her, as they were unpopular and Laura was the most popular girl in school. Tonight, those same six classmates have decided to get together to talk with one another via Skype, but are ill-prepared when an uninvited seventh person logs onto Laura's old Skype chat and shows that they know quite a bit about the prior year's events. The unknown person threatens the group and states that if they log out or stop talking, someone will die. As the chat progresses, the truth about who posted the video begins to emerge and other secrets are revealed that test their friendships

Poltergeist Official Trailer #1 (2015)

05 Feb 2015

Poltergeist_2015_poster

Release dates
July 24, 2015

When you hear remake or reboot you think. Christ can you leave well enough alone. Stop sucking the genre dry already. 9 times out of 10 remaking classics is not a good thing. The theaters are littered with the remains of remake movie corpses that killed any chance of rebooting the series as the studios hoped. Then again Godzilla and the first Star Trek movie by JJ Abrams proved me quite wrong in that aspect. Poltergeist from what I have seen from this trailer may just prove me wrong again. 10387557_418489018300778_7731961317628754781_nSome of those scenes are just really that creepy and disturbing. Especially the original all time creep me out from the original which was the clown doll that in this version was reimagined into a more creepier scene if you could believe that. The same holds true with the famous "They're hereeeeeeeeeee !!!!! scene with the little girls hand pressed on a TV with white noise static flickering on it. In the remake  she presses her hands against the TV like in the original but in this instance another hand presses back .  Some really great reworking of the classic iconic scene if you ask me. 1549482_418276878321992_4141746859730901193_n
So what is the plot going to be in this one ? is it the same or do they vary so much that it is a new movie altogether ? Thats a good question. In these post I usually include a plot summary or something from sources that include source material .  So far there is no official page that I can point to to get any more info about plots or what have you and the Wikipedia page that usually post all the press release notes and official synopsis has the bare minimum on this one . However the Facebook page has some interesting photos and back stories that are pretty interesting .

Official brief description of Poltergeist .

Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi and director Gil Kenan reimagine and contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is invaded by angry spirits. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and take the youngest daughter, the family must come together to rescue her.

From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.

Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

Tom Hardy (“The Dark Knight Rises”) stars in the title role in “Mad Max: Fury Road”—the fourth in the franchise’s history. Oscar winner Charlize Theron (“Monster,” “Prometheus”) stars as the Imperator, Furiosa. The film also stars Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”) as Nux; Hugh Keays-Byrne (“Mad Max,” “Sleeping Beauty”) as Immortan Joe; Nathan Jones (“Conan the Barbarian”) as Rictus Erectus; Josh Helman (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”) as Slit; collectively known as The Wives, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”) is Splendid, Riley Keough (“Magic Mike”) is Capable, Zoë Kravitz (“Divergent”) plays Toast, Abbey Lee is The Dag, and Courtney Eaton is Fragile. Also featured in the movie are John Howard, Richard Carter, singer/songwriter/performer iOTA, Angus Sampson, Jennifer Hagan, Megan Gale, Melissa Jaffer, Melita Jurisic, Gillian Jones and Joy Smithers.

Oscar-winning filmmaker George Miller (“Happy Feet”) is directing the film from a screenplay he wrote with Brendan McCarthy and Nico Lathouris. Miller is also producing the film, along with longtime producing partner, Oscar nominee Doug Mitchell (“Babe”, “Happy Feet”), and P.J. Voeten. Iain Smith, Graham Burke and Bruce Berman serve as executive producers.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar-winning director of photography John Seale (“The English Patient”), production designer Colin Gibson (“Babe”), editor Margaret Sixel (“Happy Feet”), Oscar-winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (“A Room with a View”), action unit director and stunt coordinator Guy Norris (“Australia”), and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt (“Knowing”).

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Kennedy Miller Mitchell production, a George Miller film, “Mad Max: Fury Road.” The film is scheduled for worldwide release beginning May 15, 2015, and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. 2015

15 Jan 2015

The_Man_from_U.N.C.L.E

If anyone is as old... well as I am. You may remember a spy / sci-fi / adventure series called The Man from U.N.C.L.E. A series that ran from September 22, 1964, to January 15, 1968 that starred Robert Vaughn (Napoleon Solo) and David McCallum (Illya Kuryakin) as secret agents. Sort of on the vibe of James Bond and the old British Spy Fi Avengers.
Now there is going to be a theatrical release / reboot of the show that will hit the theaters in the US on August 14, 2015. The show will star Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo and Armie Hammer as Illya Kuryakin and will be released by Warner Brothers. As of yet there are no trailers to this so I can't give you a teaser but snooping around the net there are loads of stills which I will load and of course a plot summary that is pretty much the same from post to post. This one is from the Google search page for the show

"At the height of the Cold War, a mysterious criminal organization plans to use nuclear weapons and technology to upset the fragile balance of power between the United States and Soviet Union. CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) are forced to put aside their hostilities and work together to stop the evildoers in their tracks. The duo's only lead is the daughter of a missing German scientist, whom they must find soon to prevent a global catastrophe"

You can get some more on this from these sites
Henry Cavill personal blog page.
Wikipedia
IMDb

So you are one of those that have no clue what the show is about and may not even care. So ok now lets have some fun first a teaser for the first season of the original series and then read a bit on the show itself.  Hopefully I can get some video of the series if it has not been swept into the we will repackage it to sell and no more free looks for you standard. if so then I will post them in the video section of the community page.

And some background via the one and only free only open source for all info Wikipedia.

The series consisted of 105 episodes originally screened between 1964 and 1968. It was produced by Arena Productions using the studios of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The first season was broadcast in black-and-white.

Ian Fleming contributed to the concepts after being approached by the show's co-creator, Norman Felton. The book The James Bond Films says Fleming proposed two characters, Napoleon Solo and April Dancer (The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.). The original name was Ian Fleming's Solo. Robert Towne, Sherman Yellen, and Harlan Ellison wrote scripts for the series. Author Michael Avallone, who wrote the first original novelisation based upon the series (see below), is sometimes incorrectly cited as the show's creator.

Solo was to have been the focus, but a scene featuring a Georgian (Georgia-USSR) agent named Illya Kuryakin drew enthusiasm from the fans and the agents were paired.

Premise

Solo and Kuryakin.
The series centered on a two-man troubleshooting team working for U.N.C.L.E. (United Network Command for Law and Enforcement): American Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn), and Georgian (Georgia-USSR) Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum). Leo G. Carroll played Alexander Waverly, the British head of the organization (Number One of Section One). Barbara Moore joined the cast as Lisa Rogers in the fourth season.

The series, though fictional, achieved such cultural prominence that props, costumes and documents, and a video clip are in the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library's exhibit on spies and counterspies. Similar U.N.C.L.E. exhibits are in the museums of the Central Intelligence Agency and other US agencies and organizations gathering intelligence.

U.N.C.L.E.'s adversary was THRUSH (WASP in the pilot movie). The original series never divulged what THRUSH represented, but in several U.N.C.L.E. novels by David McDaniel, it is the Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity, described as founded by Col. Sebastian Moran after the death of Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls in the Sherlock Holmes story, "The Final Problem".

THRUSH's aim was to conquer the world. Napoleon Solo said, in "The Green Opal Affair", "THRUSH believes in the two-party system — the masters and the slaves," and in the pilot episode ("The Vulcan Affair"), THRUSH "kills people the way people kill flies — a reflex action — a flick of the wrist." So dangerous was THRUSH that governments — even those ideologically opposed, such as the United States and the USSR — had cooperated in formating and operating U.N.C.L.E. Similarly, when Solo and Kuryakin held opposing political views, the friction between them in the story was held to a minimum.

Though executive producer Norman Felton and Ian Fleming conceived Napoleon Solo, it was producer Sam Rolfe who created the U.N.C.L.E. hierarchy. Unlike national organizations like the CIA and James Bond's MI6, U.N.C.L.E. was a global organization of agents from many countries and cultures. Illya Kuryakin was created by Rolfe as just such an agent, from the Soviet Union.

The creators decided an innocent character would be featured in each episode, giving the audience someone with whom to identify. Despite many changes over four seasons, "innocence" remained a constant — from a suburban housewife in the pilot, "The Vulcan Affair" (film version: To Trap a Spy) to those kidnapped in the final episode, "The Seven Wonders of the World Affair".
