It was about a year and a half ago that we saw the first trailer for Amityville: The Awakening, which would bring the long-running horror franchise back to the big screen after a decade away. But its marketing push ended almost as quickly as it began, when Dimension Films suddenly yanked it off its 2015 release calendar. Eventually, though, the distributor got around to rescheduling it to 2016, so now it’s starting its promotional campaign anew.
Oscar nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh plays single mom Joan, who’s feeling really good about the new home she’s just moved into with her three kids. It’s nice and big, and situated in an idyllic suburb near a top-notch medical facility that can treat her comatose son James (Cameron Monaghan). Unfortunately, it also happens to bear the address 112 Ocean Avenue, which horror fans will recognize as the setting of The Amityville Horror. Bella Thorne stars as Joan’s daughter Belle, who was cranky about the move even before the family realized they’d set up shop inside a horrifying murder house.

Fox has stressed that Gotham Season 2 will be all about the rise of the villains, so naturally the first Gotham Season 2 clip is set in villain central: Arkham Asylum. Maybe-Joker Jerome (Cameron Monaghan) tries to make a friend, only to be rebuffed by a thoroughly unimpressed Barbara Kean (Erin Richards). Watch the first Gotham Season 2 clip after the jump.

Check out the new Gotham S2 trailer, complete with looks at the current state for a bunch of the show’s villains, below. Read More »

This weekend’s Transformers: Age of Extinction is the first entry in the franchise not to use a Linkin Park tune as its main theme. But that’s okay, because Linkin Park has found another way to contribute to the American cinema landscape.
Today we have the first trailer for Mall, directed by Linkin Park member Joseph Hahn and featuring music by Linkin Park. The indie drama follows five people who come together after a shooting at a shopping mall. Cameron Monaghan (Shameless), James Frecheville (Animal Kingdom), Gina Gershon, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Peter Stormare star. Watch the Mall trailer after the jump.

Meryl Streep being who she is, it’s never particularly surprising when she signs on to work with an iconic actor. But her talent is such that we’re intrigued anyway, and this week she’s signed on for two interesting new projects. One featuring one of her first-ever co-stars, and another starring a fellow Oscar nominee I can’t believe she hasn’t worked with yet.
The first is The Good House, a “darkly comic” tale that’ll reunite the Deer Hunter duo of Streep and Robert De Niro. The other is the YA adaptation The Giver, which puts her opposite Jeff Bridges for the first time in their careers. (Though they nearly ended up together in the comedy Hope Springs.) More details on both movies after the jump.
