Like its predecessor, The Conjuring 2 is based on an (allegedly) true story, with director James Wan moving the spooky action across the pond to London to explore the famous Enfield Poltergeist case. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return to reprise their roles as real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, the latter of whom appears in a new featurette alongside two survivors of the actual haunting.
There’s a moment (spoiler, maybe?) in The Huntsman: Winter’s War, when Sam Claflin’s prince explains that Snow White is absent because staring at the magic mirror too much made her ill (what a diss). We then see a quick shot of Snow White from behind as she agonizes in front of the mirror, though her face remains obscured. If you’ve seen the film, then it’s easy to imagine why Snow White and the Huntsman star Kristen Stewart didn’t feel like reprising her role for the sequel, but she’s happy to spell it out for you, just in case.
Not only did Kyle Mooney’s sketch actually make it to air this week, but he finally gave us another update on the life of Chris Fitzpatrick, aka every high school kid you knew who was into Nu Metal and rap-rock. So what’s Chris up to now? He started a metal band over the summer with a couple of his equally obnoxious friends, and they want to crowd-fund their new homemade action flick, Johnny Shadow.
Honestly, it’s surprising it took this long for a studio to begin developing a horror movie based on Slender Man, the creepy meme that took on a prolific life of its own, inspiring countless photoshopped images, fan art, fan fiction and eventually a video game and a documentary. As rumored yesterday and confirmed today, Screen Gems is the studio that will finally put Slender Man on the big screen, though given how quickly things tend to age in internet years, you have to wonder if this horror movie will still feel relevant by the time it hits theaters.
Just yesterday we learned that Russell Crowe is in talks to play Dr. Jekyll opposite Tom Cruise in The Mummy, and while Universal has yet to confirm that casting, they have released the first official synopsis for the reboot. The plot description makes some hefty promises for Alex Kurtzman’s directorial debut, which is meant to kickstart a new shared universe of action-packed horror movies based on the studio’s classic monsters.
The First Omen isn’t the greatest title — it’s as if it was concocted by an obnoxious internet commenter who only speaks in all-caps. There’s something insistent and sort of presumptuous about “First” in that title, and while yet another film — a prequel, no less — based on iconic horror classic The Omen is enough to trigger an eye roll, there’s reason to give this one the benefit of the doubt.
Sure, you have plenty of movie options in theaters next month, with Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse and everything in between (High-Rise. Go see High-Rise), but if you're looking to stay home there's lots of new stuff for you to check out. Whether you're looking to rent or add to your collection, read on for our guide to the new DVD and Blu-ray releases arriving in May.
Warner Bros. has announced release dates for two of their upcoming adaptations / reboots, adding both films — along with an untitled mystery project — to their 2017 slate. First up is CHiPs, Dax Shepard’s new action-comedy based on the classic ’80s TV series, starring Shepard and Michael Peña in the leading roles. Next is It, the long-developing and slightly-delayed adaptation of Stephen King’s beloved horror novel, which became the subject of some minor controversy following director Cary Fukunaga’s departure.
This week Amazon launched its standalone Instant Video streaming plan (a whole dollar cheaper than Netflix's monthly fee), which should entice those of you who put off by Amazon Prime's annual fees. If you need further convincing, there's plenty of great new content coming to the service next month, like HBO favorites Mr. Show With Bob and David and Boardwalk Empire, and lots of films both old and new. Read on for our guide to what's hitting Amazon Prime Instant Video in May.
With the endless stream of reboots and re-adaptations and remakes and reimaginings and re-whatever-other-word-we’re-using-now (revivals!), news like this becomes inevitable. Chances are, if you even vaguely recall a classic television show, it’s going to come back, and the best you can hope for is something like 21 Jump Street. At worst? It will cinematically haunt your soul, revealing the true insidious nature of your nostalgia like no horror you have ever known before. And with that Herzog-ian thought, we move onto today’s news: New Line is developing a movie based on Three’s Company.
