I’m in Las Vegas for the yearly CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest) which is the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors. The convention is filled with talks about how to maximize profits and a show floor filled with the newest and best concessions equipment. More notably, most of the major movie studios hold presentations of their upcoming film line-ups for the next year and beyond, and some even show some of their films early to get some excitement from those booking the screens.
This morning we saw a presentation from Paramount Pictures showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Terminator Genisys, Mission Impossible Rogue Nation, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, Star Trek 3, Zoolander 2 and more. After the presentation I recorded a spoiler free CinemaCon Paramount reaction video reaction with Steve from Collider, which you can watch that now embedded after the jump.

The upcoming horror film Unfriended already has a unique look. From the first scene to the last, the entire thing takes place on a computer monitor as a bunch of friends interact on Skype and realize one of their dead friends may have returned, and is trying to kill them. However, what we learned at the WonderCon 2015 panel on the film is that director Levan Gabriadze took that concept to a whole new level. Each actor was in a separate room, actually on a computer, and they shot the entire movie in one take, in real time. Read More »
One of the smartest things writer/director Leigh Whannell did with Insidious Chapter 3 is go back in time. In the first film, the awesome character of Elise was killed. In Chapter 2, we see her as a character in the Further, the spiritual limbo the film series centers around. But for Chapter 3, the series goes rewinds the timeline to explain a bit more of how Elise – played by Lin Shaye – because so familiar with the spirit world of the Further.
At WonderCon 2015, Blumhouse premiered a new clip from Insidious Chapter 3 which shows a bit of this origin. We see Quinn (Stefanie Scott) ask Elise to help her contact her dead mother. Anyone who watches horror movies knows, this is a very, very bad idea.
Watch the new Insidious 3 clip below and read about a second, even scarier, clip. Read More »
