After narrowly escaping North Korean terrorists in Olympus Has Fallen, Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is back for more world-saving in London Has Fallen. He accompanies the President (Aaron Eckhart) to the funeral of the British Prime Minister, which becomes a target for bad guys who want to take out all the world leaders in one fell swoop. To stop the worst from happening, he must team with an MI6 agent (Charlotte Riley).
Focus Features recently moved London Has Fallen from fall 2015 to early 2016, and it’s taking advantage of that extra time to get started on a marketing campaign. Get your London Has Fallen first look after the jump. Read More »

Briefly: Endangered world leaders are apparently no match for endangered astronauts. Focus Features has moved the London Has Fallen release date from October 2 to January 22, 2016, just days after Fox shifted Ridley Scott’s The Martian up to October 2.
The new slot puts London Has Fallen against another British-American triller set in London, Ariel Vromen’s Criminal. Also opening that day are the faith-based mystery Risen and the horror film The Boy.
Gerard Butler once again as Secret Service agent Mike Banning, who accompanies the POTUS (Aaron Eckhart) to the funeral of the British prime minister. When the event is targeted by terrorists, Banning teams with an MI-6 agent (Charlotte Riley) to foil the plot. Morgan Freeman also returns from Olympus Has Fallen. [Deadline]

We got a brief teaser for Suffragette back in April thanks to the U.K. election. But today we have a much better look at what may very well be the source of Meryl Streep‘s next Oscar nomination.
Directed by Sarah Gavron, the historical drama chronicles the fight for women’s suffrage in 1910s England, led by activists like Emmeline Pankhurst (Streep). But the real center of this particular story is a foot soldier in the movement, a working class woman named Maud played by Carey Mulligan. Watch the new Suffragette trailer after the jump.

Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, and Morgan Freeman return in the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen. This time, they’re over in the UK, as the title London Has Fallen implies.

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 »
“Tell anyone and we’ll kill you, and your whole family. And watch the film over and over.” Those ominous words closed out the Blumhouse panel at WonderCon 2015 as producer Jason Blum unveiled the first look anywhere at Sinister 2, the sequel to the surprise 2012 horror hit.
The sequel will be released August 21 from director Ciaran Foy, from a script by the team behind the original, Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill. Once again, a family will find a box of films of murders that unleash a terrible evil. Below, check out the super short, super creepy first look at Sinister 2. Read More »
Walking onto the set of Insidious Chapter 3 is almost exactly like walking into the Further. That’s not just because, on day 25 of a 29 day shoot, they’re shooting scenes in the Further. It’s because first-time director Leigh Whannel likes a very quiet set and everything is kept incredibly dark. How dark is it? So dark, PAs walk around the stage with flashlight head attachments. So dark that even the dim monitors around which a small group of journalists huddles in far the corner are putting off too much light. A ceiling to floor curtain is dragged in front of us to just make sure things remain dark.
After writing and co-starring in the first two films, Whannel is doing both those jobs as well as directing Insidious Chapter 3. It’s a prequel to the first two, set three years before the first movie, and is described as an origin story for Elise, Lin Shaye’s character. She’ll be called in to help the Lambert family (Stefanie Scott and Dermot Mulroney) deal with some issues in the Further, the alternate plane of existence that’s home to some of the most terrible creatures imaginable. In Insidious Chapter 3, the main villain is described as “the physical manifestation of cancer” and he was the star of the brief, frightening scene we saw shot. It’s August 12, 2014 at Delfino Stages, about 20 miles outside of Los Angeles and this is our Insidious 3 set visit. Read More »
