We were just talking about board games being made into movies, and now here’s the trailer for Ouija. The horror film is based on Hasbro’s “spirit board” game, which allows people to interact with spirits via a board marked with letters, numbers, and words like “yes” and “no,” and a small planchette which is “guided” by spirits to spell out statements on the board. And while you may be surprised by this story concept, when someone in the film uses a Ouija board, they get in touch with something that turns out to be dangerous. Watch the Ouija trailer below.

Here’s the first teaser for the adaptation of Joe Hill‘s novel Horns, which comes from director Alexandre Aja (High Tension, Piranha 3D). Daniel Radcliffe stars as Ignatius, a guy whose girlfriend perishes under mysterious circumstances, leading most everyone to think Radcliffe is the person responsible. There’s more to it than that, and one of the story’s complications is that Ignatius grows horns, and finds that this new physical development also brings a power to compel others to admit hidden details about their lives. Juno Temple and Sabrina Carpenter also star in the film adapted by Keith Bunin; watch the Horns teaser below.

Probably the weirdest Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice rumor to float in the past week said that all of the other rumors so far had been based on a fake script intentionally distributed by Warner Bros. The goal? To propagate misinformation about the film. Moreover, the rumor claimed that the author of that script was none other than Kevin Smith. The whole story seemed too ridiculous to be true, and now Smith has commented on it. To the surprise of no one, he says the whole claim is bunk.
On the more positive side, however, Smith is also sharing something new from his own film Tusk. He’s dropped the film’s first poster, and it’s a great image. Check that out below. Read More »

Briefly: AMC has already released a few briefs teases from the set of The Walking Dead season 5 but now they’ve gone one step further. Almost like you’re visiting the set yourself, they’ve premiered a short scene from the new season. Emphasis on the “short,” in that it’s 30 seconds and feels like an assembly made very quickly by an editor to show the actors what they just shot. But still, it’s The Walking Dead and there are zombies a-plenty.
Check out a scene from The Walking Dead season 5 below. Read More »
