Conjuring

Briefly: Six months ago, who would have though James Wan’s The Conjuring would itself conjure not one, but two, follow-ups? A spin-off, Annabelle, is currently filming. Now Warner Bros. has set a prime October 23, 2015 release date for the direct sequel to the paranormal investigation film. Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes are writing and Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are now confirmed to return. There’s no word on the plot, but Lorraine Warren was again interviewed extensively as research.

Watch the Opening Scene of ‘Hannibal’ Season Two

Hannibal - Season 2

Storytelling is all about setup and payoff, control and release. I won’t talk about the end of the first season of Hannibal, to protect those who haven’t seen it, but we can safely talk about the opening of season two. The new season begins this Friday, and the first significant scene in the first episode sets up the episodes that will follow, if not quite in the way you’d expect.

Watch a long clip from the scene below, which will also serve as an intro to the show for those who haven’t yet tuned in. Read More »

eli-roth-2

Eli Roth‘s latest film, The Green Inferno, is still awaiting release but the director behind the Hostel series has already lined up his next thing. It’s called Knock Knock, and the story follows two young girls who seduce a married man and then make his life a living hell. Roth will direct and co-write the screenplay with Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo, who collaborated with him on Aftershock.

Not Safe for Work

Joe Johnston could have done anything after Captain America: The First Avenger, and what he chose to do was run in the opposite direction with a micro-budget thriller.

Not Safe for Work stars Max Minghella (The Social Network) as a paralegal who gets trapped in his office building with a killer (J.J. Feild) on the loose. It’s the latest from producer Jason Blum, the hotshot producer behind Paranormal ActivitySinister, and Insidious. So the pedigree is pretty promising, but how does the film itself look? Watch the trailer (which, despite the title, is totally SFW) after the jump.

penny-dreadful-trailer

Penny Dreadful is the new show from Showtime and Sam Mendes, a Victorian-age horror tale that is a bit like an alternate League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, basically a collection of several famous pulp characters that lie in the public domain. It features Dorian Gray, Frankenstein’s monster, players from Dracula, and Eva Green. (The actress is not in the public domain, to be clear.)

The first teaser was brief, but this full trailer has a lot more of Green, plus blood, bodies tangled, twisted and mangled, insects and spiders, and all manner of creepy weirdo images. There’s a lot to take in, and it should be safe for work, though perhaps not for those in particularly sensitive jobs. Read More »

Odeya Rush in The Odd Life of Timothy Green

Jack Black seems like a natural fit to lead Sony’s upcoming adaptation of R.L. Stine‘s Goosebumps, seeing as he’s worked with director Rob Letterman before on Gulliver’s Travels and Shark Tale. But a kids’ movie needs a kid to star, and now the film has found one in We Are What We Are actress Odeya Rush. Get more plot details after the jump.

a-field-in-england-teaser-header-2

Last summer Ben Wheatley‘s film A Field in England started to see release, with a simultaneous drop in theaters, on disc, and on cable and VOD in the UK. It went on to play festivals and finally opened in the US last week. Along with the film’s UK release last year was a “digital masterclass” on the making of the movie — a thirty-minute behind the scenes doc that is really terrifically detailed. This isn’t fluffy filler, but rather a nuts and bolts look at making an indie movie with relatively few resources. It’s fantastic stuff, but loaded with spoilers (naturally) about the film.

So now is a great time to point it out to you once more, as the film is in release pretty much everywhere at this point. Below you’ll find a good deal of behind the scenes footage, and links to even more. Read More »
