‘Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse’ Opening In Theaters Today

Happy Halloween! This October has already seen a new addition to the Paranormal Activity series (The Ghost Dimension), the return of AMC’s The Walking Dead and its spinoff series Fear The Walking Dead, and the comeback of R.L. Stine’s classic scary-tale series Goosebumps with Jack Black (Shallow Hal, School of Rock) at the helm. This week, and just in time for Halloween weekend, we get another Zombified movie experience from director Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity, Burning Palms) in the form of Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. Bringing back the fun-zombie feel of Zombieland (2009), this one follows three scouts who must use their experiences to ban together and save their hometown from a zombie outbreak. Actors Tye Sheridan (The Tree of Life, Mud), Logan Miller (I’m In The Band, +1), and newcomer Joey Morgan star in the lead roles, with Sarah Dumont (Don Jon, Playing It Cool), David Koechner (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby), and Cloris Leachman (Young Frankenstein, Beerfest) in the supporting cast. Director Landon co-wrote the screenplay with Lona Williams (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Shark Tale), Carrie Lee Wilson (Teamo Supremo, College Road Trip), and Emi Mochizuki (College Road Trip). Also still playing in theaters for your Halloween needs are Goosebumps and Crimson Peak. Enjoy the Halloween weekend, and be safe!

New Film ‘Heaven Knows What’ From Directors Ben And Joshua Safdie Opening May 29th


Directing brothers Ben and Joshua Safdie (The Black Baloon, Lenny Cooke) will see their dramatic 2014 hit Heaven Knows What opening in theaters this May 29th. The film received recognition at the Venice Film Festival last year and was also shown at this year’s SXSW Festival. Adapted by Joshua and fellow screenwriter Ronald Bronstein (Frownland, Go Get Some Rosemary) from a book by Arielle Holmes (Winter’s Dream), the story follows Harley and Ilya (played by author Arielle Holmes), the latter of whom struggles with heroin addiction, but who, at Harley’s request to prove her love, slits her wrists to save herself and their relationship in this intense psychological drama. Holmes based the book and character on her real-life experiences as a heroin addict and the lengths she and her fellow users would go to in order to get their fix. Making up the supporting cast are actors Caleb Landry Jones (No Country For Old Men, X-Men: First Class), and Eleanore Hendricks (A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints, Nancy Please). The movie opens in theaters nationwide this May 29th, and from the looks of the trailer it will be pretty intense. The trailer alone will take you back to 2000’s hard-hitting drug-drama Requiem For A Dream. Check it out here on MADE!
