Corin Hardy’s horror film The Nun just earned the biggest opening weekend haul of any movie set in The Conjuring cinematic universe and pushed that franchise into the history books as the biggest R-rated horror franchise of all time, with over $1.1 billion worldwide. That tops long-running franchises like Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th and more.
With numbers like those, it’s no surprise that The Conjuring 3 is still in development, and one of the producers has given a brief update about the further adventures of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. Read More »

The Conjuring is one of the best horror movies of the 21st century so far and The Conjuring 2 is one of the best horror sequels ever made, so the news that The Conjuring 3 is officially in the works at Warner Bros. is music to my ears. But there’s a catch: James Wan will most likely not return to the director’s seat.

James Wan‘s Aquaman went fishing and caught itself another new writer. David Leslie Johnson has been brought on board to pen the DC superhero movie, which already has Jason Momoa attached to play the lead. Johnson recently worked with Wan on The Conjuring 2: The Entfield Poltergeist, which is shooting now. More on the new Aquaman writer after the jump. Read More »
The last time a Dungeons and Dragons movie hit the screen, in 2000, it was a fantasy disaster, like a D&D play session where every dice roll comes up totally wrong. But Warner Bros. started to develop a new D&D movie a couple years ago. While that effort was temporarily delayed by a lawsuit, now the new Dungeons and Dragons movie is back on.
There’s already a script in hand thanks to that pre-lawsuit development effort, from David Leslie Johnson (The Conjuring 2), and so the film could be able to move relatively quickly. We don’t know much about the story, but it is reportedly set in the Forgotten Realms section of the D&D universe. Read More »
For decades Denise Di Novi has worked as a producer. She consulted on Videodrome; her name is on Heathers; and she was among the most significant members of the team that brought early Tim Burton films to the screen. She worked to make Edward Scissorhands, Batman Returns, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Ed Wood, for starters. Now Di Novi is making the move to director, and she’ll call the shots on the thriller Unforgettable, at Warner Bros. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
After the success of the Lord of the Rings films, The Hobbit and now Game of Thrones, Warner Bros. is looking to kick off another major fantasy franchise. They’ve just purchased the rights to Dungeons & Dragons, the incredibly famous tabletop role playing game in which players create characters and go on adventures through mystical worlds.
Screenwriter David Leslie Johnson is writing the film based on his own script, Chainmail, which was itself based on a fantasy game that predated D&D. Now that Warner Bros. owns the rights to the more popular brand though, Leslie Johnson is retrofitting his script to fit that game. One of this film’s producers, Courtney Soloman, actually directed a D&D film released by New Line 13 years ago. (There have also been two direct-to-DVD sequels.) That 2000 release was a financial and critical disaster, but WB is going to try again. Read More »
I’ll say this for Jonathan Liebesman‘s Clash of the Titans sequel Wrath of the Titans: the movie really doesn’t look to skimp on the creatures and mythical monsters. Not only that, but it gives the returning Sam Worthington a haircut that is really worthy of the legacy of Harry Hamlin’s style from the 1981 Clash of the Titans. (Not sure that’s a good thing, actually.)
Anyway, the sequel has Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes reprising their roles as Zeus and Hades, and adds Toby Kebbell and Rosamund Pike, both of whom get a couple good shots in this new trailer. But most of what this new look affers is monsters, monsters, monsters. Which is a big part of what we really need from a movie like this, after all. Check it out below. Read More »
