The Prodigy trailer

Orion Pictures is often fondly remembered as the mid-size distributor that released four Oscar winners throughout the 1980s and ’90s (The Silence of the Lambs, Dances with Wolves, Amadeus, and Platoon) and tons of other great films ranging from RoboCop to The Terminator. But those rose-tinted reflections can overshadow the fact that the company also put out movies like Mac and Me and Johnny Be Good. Hey, not everything can be a winner. After going out of business in the late 1990s, Orion was resurrected in 2013 and has been steadily releasing movies you’ve never heard of ever since.

Now they’re kicking off 2019 with The Prodigy, a new horror film starring Orange is the New Black‘s Taylor Schilling and Jackson Robert Scott, the kid who played Georgie in the 2017 adaptation of Stephen King’s It. Will this be a new classic or be doomed to the wasteland of bland horror movies? Check out the newest trailer below and judge for yourselves. Read More »
