the craft reboot blumhouse

Blumhouse will attempt to summon Manon by producing a reboot of The Craft. The ’90s witch flick has become something of a cult classic, and producers have been mulling a remake for a few years. Now, Zoe Lister-Jones is set to write and direct a The Craft reboot for Blumhouse and Columbia Pictures. But will this new take on The Craft be able to capture the magic of the original?

invisible man remake cast

Now that the Dark Universe is dead (*sheds a tear*), Universal is retooling their plans for future Universal Monsters movies. For now, they’ve teamed with Blumhouse and Upgrade filmmaker Leigh Whannell to concoct an Invisible Man remake. And it looks like that film is attracting some impressive talent. A report indicates Elisabeth Moss, of Mad Men and The Handmaid’s Tale fame, is circling the project.

us box office

Early box office projections for Jordan Peele‘s Us are in, and the horror film appears to be headed towards a $40+ million opening weekend if all goes well. That’s not exactly mega blockbuster territory, but it’s not bad, either. As is the case with most films out of the Blumhouse horror movie factory, Us had a relatively meager budget, which all but guarantee’s it’ll be a hit. On top of that, those early projections could increase after the film premieres at SXSW next week. If the buzz out of the festival is overwhelmingly positive, it could help hype the Us box office even higher.

Blumhouse had smashing success with their sequel/reboot to Halloween, and while they still don’t have the rights to a sequel yet, they’re certainly mulling the idea. But what about other horror franchises? Could Jason Blum and company reboot more fright flicks? That’s the dream (or should I say nightmare?). In the past, Blum has mentioned a passing interest in a Scream reboot, and he hasn’t given up the idea. The mega-producer also would like to take a crack at Hellraiser. Nothing is even close to official yet, but that could change.

Ma Trailer

A Blumhouse movie starring Octavia Spencer? You have my attention. In Ma, Spencer plays a lonely woman who offers some teens a chance to crash in her basement and knock back a few cold ones. But Spencer’s house has some rules, and if the kids break them, well…there’s going to be trouble. Ma comes from Tate Taylor, who also directed Spencer in The Help. Watch the Ma trailer below.

happy death day 2u review

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. An unlucky person finds themselves living the same day, over and over again, in a continual loop. If they happen to die, they have to start the day all over again. And things are exactly the same…except when they aren’t. Sounds pretty familiar, right? It should. It’s the plot of Groundhog Day, but it’s also the plot of several other notable titles: Edge of Tomorrow, the recent Netflix series Russian Doll, and of course, Happy Death Day, the clever slasher flick from 2017.

Now here comes Happy Death Day 2U, a sequel that might not have seemed likely when the credits on Happy Death Day rolled. After all, the person stuck in same day – college student Tree Gelbman – was able to close the loop, and become a better person in the process. Surely Tree couldn’t get stuck in a loop again…right?

Relive review

Remember the TV series Day Break? Probably not, because it only aired for one season back in 2006. It starred Taye Diggs as a detective stuck in a Groundhog Day situation, forced to experience the same day again and again until he solves the murder of an important public official. Jacob Aaron Estes’ new movie Relive feels like that show mixed with Frequency, the Dennis Quaid/Jim Caviezel movie in which father and son communicate across time.

Selma star David Oyelowo plays L.A.P.D. detective Jack Radcliff, whose family is mysteriously murdered in the first few minutes of the film. As he mourns their deaths, he receives a seemingly impossible phone call from his niece (A Wrinkle in Time’s Storm Reid) – she’s very much alive, and is somehow calling from a few days before the murders take place. So it’s up to Radcliff to put the pieces together and prevent their deaths before they happen. Read More »

the invisible man remake

The Dark Universe is rising from the grave! Sort of! Almost two years after Tom Cruise’s The Mummy both launched and killed Universal’s monster cinematic universe in one fell swoop, Blumhouse is set to take over with a new version of The Invisible Man. Leigh Whannell, who helmed the kick-ass horror action flick Upgrade, will direct. At one point, Johnny Depp was attached to star – but that’s no longer the case. This is going to be a fresh start.

spawn reboot no joy

Finally, someone is going to be brave enough to make a dark and gritty superhero movie. Todd McFarlane has been teasing a Spawn reboot for years, and he’s teamed with Blumhouse to make it a reality. McFarlane has spoken frequently about what he’s hoping to achieve with this new film – an R-rated horror-movie vibe that’s far removed from the terrible 1997 Spawn movie. Now, McFarlane has added even more detail by claiming this new film is going to be both “dark” and “ugly.” And that’s not all! The movie will also be completely free of joy. Sounds fun!
