The Conjuring 3

The Conjuring universe has been growing quite a bit in the past few years. Not only has the spin-off Annabelle sparked a franchise on its own, but The Nun became quite the success earlier this year, and The Crooked Man spin-off is still on the way. But with Annabelle 3 bringing Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) into the fray in a much more prominent way, what does the future of The Conjuring franchise look like?

Patrick Wilson has been making the publicity rounds for this month’s release of Aquaman, and a recent interview eventually turned to The Conjuring franchise. While the actor couldn’t reveal much about the sequel, what he did say certainly makes us curious about what will happen. Read More »

aquaman press conference

“Whoa!” Jason Momoa’s deep, raspy voice exclaimed upon setting his eyes on the Madame Tussaud wax mannequin of himself at the Aquaman press conference in New York City. Suddenly, the 39-year-old actor was like a kid in a candy store, staring deeply at his incredibly accurate wax likeness with the kind of sparkle in his eyes reserved for children seeing a superhero for the first time. But he’s not the only one to have that exact reaction.

“My first experience wearing the suit, it was really beautiful and I’ve actually never told [director James Wan] this,” Momoa said. “I put it on, I didn’t have a mirror, and I come out of wardrobe and I get to see his face. He’s always extremely passionate and lets you know right away. But the absolute joy — he looked like a kid — he beamed, ‘I did it.’ He was super proud, and he didn’t have to say anything, I could see it on his face.”

For Momoa, director James Wan, and fellow cast members Amber Heard and Patrick Wilson, who joined them at the Aquaman press junket on Saturday, December 1 in New York City, Aquaman is about extending that childlike wonder of seeing a favorite superhero come to life to an entire movie. And no, it’s not just about wax mannequins — however eerily similar they are (“I can blame everything that goes wrong on it!” Momoa exclaimed). Momoa, Wan, Heard, and Wilson discussed the personal and mythic elements that went into Aquaman, and the long road to bringing it to the big screen.

Here are some of the splashiest things we learned about the making of Aquaman ahead of the film’s release on December 21, 2018.

Aquaman Trailer

All right, the last Aquaman trailer we featured was said to be the “final” one, but that’s only here in the United States. Our friends over in China recently got a new trailer, and it has plenty of new footage from the upcoming DC Comics superhero movie starring Jason Momoa. Most of the new stuff is all of the underwater action spectacle that will help Aquaman stand out from the rest of the comic book fare. Check out the new international Aquaman trailer below if you’re hungry for more footage. Read More »

aquaman early buzz

We’re a month away from the theatrical release of Aquaman, but Warner Bros. seems to still be testing the waters with the comic book movie starring Jason Momoa and directed by James Wan.

At least one more test screening for Aquaman appears to have been held in California recently, with more reactions pouring in from the lucky audience members selected to come aboard. And the Aquaman early buzz seems to be much the same as before: mostly positive.

aquaman posters

Aquaman will soon make a big splash in theaters everywhere! That’s right, the King of Atlantis is going to swim his way onto movie screens, and cause a tidal wave at the box office! And he’s going to get you wet. Okay, that’s enough of that. We are indeed getting closer to the release of Aquaman, though, which means marketing is going to increase. Case in point: a series of silly (yet somehow enjoyable) character posters have just surfaced (sorry, I can’t stop!), featuring lots of blue, lots of flowing hair, and lots of Patrick Wilson yelling. Plunge to the depths below to sea the Aquaman posters.

Annabelle 3

In the Conjuring universe, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga play married paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. Thus far, the pair haven’t figured prominently in any of the cinematic universe’s spin-off movies, appearing in The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 and skipping out on the Annabelle franchise and the recent The Nun. But that’s about to change: a new report says Wilson and Farmiga are set to reprise their roles in the upcoming Annabelle 3.

Aquaman gave a select few audience members permission to come aboard for early test screenings of the Warner Bros. DC Extended Universe film. So what’s the verdict? A little murky, since audience members didn’t share more than a few vague reactions to the comic book movie. But for the most part, it seemed like Aquaman made quite a splash.

In the Tall Grass Cast

Peter Cushing made a living and defined his legacy as a horror icon by “classing up” B-movie productions. He’d show up, looking and sounding like the smartest man in the room, and suddenly even the most ridiculous scenario made perfect, logical sense. If he believes it, then you believe it!

I wouldn’t have pegged Patrick Wilson as the American answer to Peter Cushing, but here we are. After lending his “intelligent everyman” qualities to the Insidious series, the Conjuring series, and Bone Tomahawk, the talented actor has joined another horror movie: Netflix’s adaptation of Stephen King and Joe Hill‘s short story In the Tall Grass. And man-oh-man, this movie is going to be…something else.

The one-two punch of Aquaman and Shazam! signaled a new era for Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe. No longer will the DCEU be solely dark, gritty, and brooding — here are two male heroes who are bright and, dare I say it, goofy. The Aquaman trailer in particular may have been a little too goofy for the audiences at the Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.

But if you were skeptical after seeing the Aquaman trailer for the first time, dive into our Aquaman trailer breakdown to find out if James Wan‘s movie holds water.
