The Conjuring 2

Director James Wan has been pretty generous with snapshots from the set of The Conjuring 2, but today we finally have our first official still. Above, you can see Madison Wolfe as Janet Hodgson (via Entertaiment Weekly). Her supernatural affliction draws the attention of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) in 1977 England. Like the first film, The Conjuring 2 is supposedly based on a true story, and a pretty well known one at that. “The haunting that afflicted the Hodgson family is probably one of the most documented paranormal cases in the world,” teased Wan.

But it might not be the only famous event referenced in the movie. Rumor has it the opening scene will feature the DeFeo murders, which inspired The Amityville Horror, and now actress Alexa Najera has confirmed (via Bloody Disgusting) that she’ll play “Allison, not Dawn” in The Conjuring 2. Allison and Dawn are the names of two of the DeFeo children. The Conjuring 2 opens June 10, 2016.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Another new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them still has dropped thanks to Entertainment Weekly. This time, actor Dan Fogler gets to be front and center. He plays Jacob, a No-Maj (i.e., Muggle) character who gets caught up in the wizarding world after meeting “magizoologist” Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). Way in the back there is Katherine Waterston as Tina, a witch. The Harry Potter spinoff, set in 1920s New York, arrives November 18, 2016.

Inferno

Ten years after The Da Vinci Code hit theaters, it doesn’t look like a whole lot has changed for Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon. He’s still played by Tom Hanks, he still spends a lot of time in old buildings looking at even older stuff, and he still likes hanging out with younger brunettes. In The Da Vinci Code it was Audrey Tautou, in Angels & Demons it was Ayelet Zurer, and now in Inferno it’s Felicity Jones. What is different this time around is that he’ll be dealing with amnesia, which… makes him a less cool version of Jason Bourne, we guess? Inferno arrives October 14, 2016.

Kung Fu Panda 3

With just weeks to go until its release, Kung Fu Panda 3 has already released a lot of marketing material. You probably weren’t dying to see another look at Jack Black‘s martial arts superstar. But he’s cute, and it’s a slow week, and Kung Fu Panda 3 will be one of your least terrible options once the January doldrums hit. So enjoy the photo above of Po looking wistful and Ping (voiced by James Hong) looking vaguely annoyed. King Fu Panda 3 drops January 29, 2016.
