the nutcracker and the four realms trailer

Every girl dreams of magical worlds populated by Sugar Plum Fairies, toy soldiers, ballerinas, and gangs of mice, but Mackenzie Foy gets to be the girl who stumbles upon one.

But upon her arrival, she finds that this beautiful parallel world is threatened by an evil tyrant, Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren). And naturally, Clara is the only one who can save it. And the newest The Nutcracker and The Four Realms trailer reveals just why.

Helen Mirren stunt

Helen Mirren is out here stumping for stunt performers – and rightfully so. The Academy Award-winning actress, who’s appeared in a handful of action films over the past few years, is using her platform to draw attention to the fact that is the year 2018 and somehow, there still is not an Oscars category devoted to the hard work of an entire Hollywood community. Hey Academy, here’s a bit of free advice: when Dame Helen Mirren speaks, you should probably listen. Read the Helen Mirren stunt comments below. Read More »

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.

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.
