Eli Roth News Archive
This weekend Hollywood gave us all kinds of movies this weekend, but it was a family monster flick that flew the highest!
Adam Sandler's Hotel Transylvania 2 was number one at the box office and took in $47.5 million in North America alone — setting the record for a first weekend in the notoriously slow September!
But don't feel bad for the previous record-holder — it was the original Hotel Transylvania!
This weekend, Jurassic World made a killing at the box office — which officially means that movies featuring prehistoric monsters are totally IN right now!
After 20 years of being in pre-production purgatory, Warner Brothers is in talks with Eli Roth to direct a big screen adaptation of Meg, a New York Times bestseller about a giant, prehistoric shark!
The Hostel director would be a great fit for the story, which based on the description is essentially Jaws on crack. The Steve Alten novel centers around two men who join forces to subdue an ancient shark that's terrorizing California beaches.
Though instead of a Great White, they will battle a Megalodon, which are said to grow 60 feet long and are dubbed the most powerful predators in history!
Roth is likely to direct the film because he's quite the shark fanatic already. The 43-year-old is set to host Discovery Channel's Shark After Dark, and make an appearance on Shark Week where he will be swimming with — you guessed it — sharks!
We think it's safe to say for this ancient monster movie will make a big splash in theaters!

Marilyn Manson has never been one to shy away from controversy throughout his career, but even he's gotta draw the line somewhere!
Marilyn was immediately linked to the disturbing footage due to the fact that it was edited together with clips from some of his previous music videos. However, the singer is finally speaking out about the bizarre video, and he says it was NOT meant to see the light of day:
Newly Found Music Video Footage Depicts Lana Del Rey Being Raped By Director Eli Roth… But Nobody Seems To Know Where It Came From
Throughout the years, Eli Roth has gained a reputation for his "torture porn" splatter flicks, featuring grotesque and disturbing images.
However, even by his standards, this is very dark.
A video has recently surfaced on the internet showing seemingly random clips from Marilyn Manson music videos for songs off of his 2012 album, Born Villain.
But between the short clips is an unexplained sequence which depicts Lana Del Rey being raped by Eli, and it's understandably creating quite a stir.
