Winchester giveaway

Confession time: I don’t handle ghost stories very well. I lost my damn mind during The Conjuring, and I still remember emerging into a dark and foggy street after seeing the first Paranormal Activity and being jumpy for a few hours.

But I may have to psyche myself into seeing Winchester, the new horror film starring Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke, when it comes out on Friday. In the meantime, we’re hosting a giveaway of prints of an alternate poster for the movie that was designed by celebrated artist Daniel Danger, who’s done some incredible work for companies like Mondo over the years. Take a look at the full poster and learn how to enter our Winchester giveaway below!

Winchester Trailer

There are plenty of horror movies about haunted houses, but this might be the first about a house intentionally built for the purpose of imprisoning ghosts.

No, we’re not talking about a reboot of Ghostbusters again (at least not yet), but rather Winchester. Formerly given the subtitle of “The House That Ghosts Built” when the first trailer debuted last year, CBS Films has opted to go with the shorter title of Winchester (it’s cleaner). But that doesn’t mean there’s a shortage of scares in this horror thriller starring Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke.

winchester trailer

As someone with an unhealthy addiction to Travel Channel specials on America’s most famous haunted houses, I’ve been wondering for ages when someone would get around to making a movie based on the legend of the Winchester mansion. And here we are.

Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built takes one of the more intriguing ghost stories of the past century or so and builds it into a movie. It certainly helps that the great Helen Mirren, who seems to be discovering a Liam Neeson-esque love for genre fare at this stage of her career, is front-and-center as Sarah Winchester, the eccentric owner of a very famous “haunted” residence.

Disney Franchise Timeline

While there are plenty of heavy-hitters at this edition of D23, Disney also used the expo to introduce a film that, while it has a famous title, may not be on as many radars as the movies coming out of Lucasfilm and Marvel. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is a fantastical take on an iconic story and the footage screened at the film’s panel suggests something similar to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland…with a lot more dancing.

Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) ain’t the family man he once was. Toretto has abandoned his old crew for Cipher (Charlize Theron), who somehow convinces him to play for a different team.

Collateral Beauty Trailer - Will Smith

Even though Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will undoubtedly dominate the box office when it hits theaters in December, there’s at least one film that’s bold enough to go up against the franchise spin-off on opening weekend.

As a form of therapy, Smith begins writing letters to Time, Love and Death, and one day he gets a surprise when one of them actually shows up to talk to him.
