35 years after it scared away the Lutzes, 112 Ocean Avenue continues to welcome new residents in Amityville: The Awakening. This time around, the poor fools are single mom Joan (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and her three kids: pouty Belle (Bella Thorne), cutesy Juliet (McKenna Grace), and coma-struck James (Cameron Monaghan).
As always, the family starts out optimistic about their new digs. It’s near some excellent medical facilities, all the better to treat James’s illness. Then, as always, bizarre things start happening. Watch the first Amityville: The Awakening trailer after the jump.

You’ve seen Jennifer Lawrence hold her own in films as diverse as Winter’s Bone, Silver Linings Playbook, and the X-Men and Hunger Games films. Now she may get a chance to do some really grim work in the new film from Quentin Tarantino, The Hateful Eight, in which stagecoach travelers pass a blizzard holed up in a Wyoming store, where tensions between them come to a violent head.
(The film might be called The H8ful Eight, depending on how seriously you want to take the trailer’s title card.)

Last week, /Film broke the news The Weinstein Company would be including a teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight with Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The filmmaker has yet to start shooting the film, so many were curious would the trailer would entail. Well, now we know.
The trailer has been seen and while the video isn’t online yet (and likely won’t be, at least officially) a detailed description is ours to share. There’s no footage, just a selection of character names and roles and some country music.

The reasons to see Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For are numerous. The incredible cast for one, which includes Jessica Alba, Powers Boothe, Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Stacy Keach, Jaime King, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis. The filmmakers are another, the iconic storyteller Frank Miller and maverick Robert Rodriguez. There’s the pulpy, exciting source material. And now, we even get a Quentin Tarantino trailer to boot.
But to truly experience a film like this, one that was probably more than half made in the computer, you almost have to see it in 3D. It was specifically crafted that way. In a new featurette, exclusively debuting on /Film, you can listen to the filmmakers and stars talk about the 3D in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Watch the Sin City 2 3D featurette below. Read More »
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is an unusual film. In its original form, it is really two movies, subtitled Him and Her, following characters played by James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain as they each experience two sides of a tumultuous relationship. But the project will first hit theaters in the US as a single-version film subtitled Them, which weaves together the two viewpoints. (And, in doing so, necessarily discards some of each experience.) This new Hong Kong trailer shows the split film in a way we haven’t quite seen in other trailers; check out the new The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby splitscreen trailer below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
By all accounts, Quentin Tarantino hasn’t even started to shoot his new film The Hateful Eight. There’s already a poster, however, and now there’s reliable info that a teaser trailer is in the can. Even better, several reports say that the Hateful Eight trailer release is set for next week, attached to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Trouble is, that’s probably the only place you’ll be able to see it for a while.
Sure, trailer news and rumors are somewhat lame, but when it’s word on a trailer for a film that we thought might never be made? We’ll take it, especially after the movie script was leaked, leading to the film being cancelled, then revived for a live reading.
More info on the Hateful Eight trailer release is below. Read More »

It looks like Tim Burton is taking a brief break from his usual flights of fancy. We have the first look at his upcoming biopic Big Eyes, starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz as artists Margaret and Walter Keane.
Though the Keanes’ eerie paintings look like something out of a Burton fairy tale, the actual movie doesn’t sound so whimsical. The Keanes’ paintings hit it big in the ’50s and ’60s, with Walter taking all the artistic credit. However, it emerged during a bitter courtroom battle that Margaret had actually done all the paintings. Hit the jump to see the first Big Eyes images.
