Searching for his missing sister, Clay heads up to the eerie woods of legendary Crystal Lake where he stumbles on the creaky remains of rotting old cabins that lie in wait behind moss-covered trees. And that's not the only thing hiding under the brush. Against the advice of police and cautions from the locals, Clay pursues what few leads he has with the help of a young woman he meets among a group of college kids up for an all-thrills weekend. But they are about to find much more than they bargained for. Little do they know, they've entered the domain of one of the most terrifying specters in American film history - the infamous killer who haunts Crystal Lake armed with a razor-sharp machete...Jason Voorhees.
Paramount Pictures is reportedly considering a found footage angle for the next Friday the 13th reboot, which they are producing with Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes.
Back in June, we reported that Paramount Pictures has retained control of the Friday the 13th franchise, which Warner Bros. gave up as part of a deal to co-produce and co-distribute Interstellar. Paramount only has the rights for five years, so if a Friday the 13th movie doesn't hit theaters by 2018, the franchise moves back to Warner Bros.Read More
It seems that one of this year's more popular remakes will be getting a enw installment. According to Bloody-Disgusting, Platinum Dunes will be producing Friday the 13th II.

Tyler Perry is back to his old tricks. In a move that has surprised no one, his latest theatrical dramedy Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail pulled in $41.1 million over the weekend, becoming the number one film at the box office. While the movie currently ranks as the twentieth highest grossing fat suit movie of all time, it is Perry's biggest opening weekend thus far, proving once and for all that the man owns February. With an opening weekend this high, you can look for even more films from Perry's signature brand sometime in the very near future.
This week's only other new release, Sony Screen Gem's Fired Up, didn't fair quite so well. The poorly marketed teen comedy about a couple of jocks who join their high school cheerleading team, took an immediate nosedive at the box office and wound up in ninth place with just $6 million. Expect it to be out of sight and mind by next week.Read More
Jason took the box office this weekend, with his Friday the 13th earning an estimated $42.2 million dollars. That is the biggest weekend take of the year thus far, and it beats the cumulative earnings of any previous Friday the 13th ever released with the exception of Freddy vs. Jason. This is certainly good news for both producers Platinum Dunes and longtime fans, as they are pretty much guaranteed a sequel now that their favorite slasher has proven his ability to hack up the bank.
In the second and third place spots were two holdovers from previous weeks. The romantic comedy He's Just Not That Into You dropped down one space to number two with another $19.6 million to its name. In just two weeks, this Valentine-themed charmer has earned an estimated $55 million. Coming in at third is the little Fox action film that has surprised many. Taken earned another $19.2 million, bringing its earnings up to $77.9 million. It should reach $100 million in the states before it completely drops off the top ten. Its current worldwide grosses stands at $146.9 million. That's a pretty decent take for a film that didn't really get any promotional push at all.Read More
We've all seen the thirty second Super Bowl Ad. Now, come this Friday the 13th, we will be able to watch the very first full length Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen trailer. That's right, this latest look at Michael Bay's giant robot sequel will unspool in theaters playing Warner Brothers' Friday the 13th remake. If you needed one more reason to watch Jason Voorhees chop up naked teenagers, this should be the incentive that pushes you over the edge.
We don't have a run time on the upcoming trailer, or any idea what footage will be shown. But you can rest assured that it will contain some never before scene moments that will have bloggers dissecting it shot for shot once it becomes available on the Internet. It will be the perfect Valentine's Day gift for that special someone in your life. An advanced look at robots followed by campsite carnage. What could be better?Read More
