    First Look: Jim Parsons and Kaya Scodelario in Zac Efron Ted Bundy Flick

    Published

    on

    Last week we shared you first look at Metallica’s James Hetfield in director Joe Berlinger’s Ted Bundy flick Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile.

    Today we have a few new pics from the film straight from Zac Efron himself. The actor posted these fresh photos on his Instagram today and you can check them out below.

    The new pics feature Efron as creepy Bundy, along with our first looks at “Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons as Lead Prosecutor Larry Simpson and Kaya Scodelario (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) as Carole Anne Boone, the ex-wife of the notorious serial killer.

    If we can say nothing more about this Bundy film at this time, we can say that it sure as hell boasts some ballsy casting choices. And we’re all for that. What do you think? Let us know below!

    The film is directed by Joe Berlinger from a script by Michael Werwie and stars John Malkovich, Lily Collins, Kaya Scodelario, Angela Sarafyan, Jeffrey Donovan, Jim Parsons, and Zac Efron as Ted Bundy.

    The movie is currently shooting in Covington, Kentucky.

    Synopsis:

    Told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend who went years denying the accusations against Bundy, but ultimately turned him into the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

    I’m literally falling for you. ❤😎#happyvalentinesday

    The Kids Lead the Charge When There are Monsters at Large

    Published

    on

    With all the depressing news of late about kids having to contend with real-life monsters, we can take solace in the fact that the childhood horror that is “the monster in the closet” is finally about to meet its match at the hands of some monster-busting kids in the forthcoming feature Monsters at Large.

    From Florida filmmaker Jason Murphy and screenwriter Anthony Steven Giordano, the duo behind the Robo-Dog movies, comes Monsters at Large. The PG-rated flick about children with an overactive imagination that form a task force to stop imaginary monsters only to encounter the real thing is slated for release on DVD and VOD via Lionsgate on March 13th.

    Mischa Barton (“The OC”), Austin St. John (“Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers”), veteran character actor Stephen Tobolowsky, and The Florida Project’s Brooklynn Prince star.

    Synopsis:
    Mischa Barton and Austin St. John highlight this frightfully funny family adventure in the spirit of Ghostbusters, Goonies, Super 8, and “Stranger Things.” Alex decides to end his kid brother’s nightmares by forming a task force to take care of imaginary monsters. When their business becomes a hit, nothing can go wrong… until one of the monsters turns out to be real – and really big! Brooklynn Prince and Stephen Tobolowsky also stars in this spooky, silly supernatural saga.

    You’ll find the trailer for Monsters at Large above. You’ll also find the monster at large looks an awful lot like Sully from Monsters Inc.
