#Annabelle Trailer Has Arrived

With the release date less than a couple of months away now, Warner Bros. is kicking the promotion for Conjuring spin-off Annabelle up a gear with the second trailer. Prepare for creepy mannequin action and lots of demonic activity.



Annabelle follows John (Ward Horton) and Mia Form (Annabelle Wallis), a young couple happily expecting their first child. But when the beautiful (depending on how you look at it) vintage doll John buys for his wife attracts the attention of an obsessed satanic cult, things go scare-shaped for them and, more violently, their neighbours.

Surviving that initial incident, the couple moves to a new house, but discover that Annabelle has somehow made the trip with them. Sadly, they don’t at first make the connection between the creepy object and the horror that befell them last time, but they soon learn that the doll has a demon attached to it, one determined to make their lives a living hell. Just once it would be nice to meet a demon whose only concern is tha…

All-Star Cast Joins The Jungle Book:Origins

Warner Bros. has cast an entire zoo’s worth of actors for its adaptation of The Jungle Book, which Andy Serkis is directing.

Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Naomie Harris, Tom Hollander, Eddie Marsan and Peter Mullan are joining Benedict Cumberbatch to star as the animal characters in the feature. Rohan Chand, the young actor who starred opposite Jason Bateman in Bad Words, will star as the human boy Mowgli.

Serkis will also take on a role.

Callie Kloves wrote the script, adapting the Rudyard Kipling short stories, while her father, Steve Kloves, the screenwriter who wrote seven of the Harry Potter films for the studio, is producing with Jonathan Cavendish. The movie will employ a mix of motion capture, CG animation and live action.

Jungle Book centers on Mowgli, an orphaned boy raised by wolves who befriends members of the animal kingdom who help him grow up. Serkis will play Baloo the bear, and Bale will voice Bagheera, a fearsome panther, both of whom save Mowgli from the killer ti…

If I Stay Review: Typical YA Fare Lacks Emotional Punch

Although well-intentioned, If I Stay is yet another hollow YA cryfest. This has been the Summer of YA and the results have been meh - from Divergent to The Fault in Our Stars, 2014 has tried its best to bring in the teenagers, all while adults roll their eyes at the melodrama. If I Stay follows the same tired themes of teenage love mixed with tragedy, and the result is only slightly better than other submissions.

Cellist Mia (Chloe Grace Moretz) has a natural talent: given the instrument as an infant, her talents have grown quickly. Yet her social life is one of missed opportunities and long hours practicing, until she and rocker Adam (Jamie Blackley) kindle an unlikely love affair. What Adam doesn't know is that Mia has applied to Julliard, which will take her far away from her Portland roots; Adam's band is gaining notoriety, and soon the two realize their time is limited. Everything comes to a tragic halt when Mia's parents (Mireille Enos and Joshua Leonard) a…

Outcast Trailer Starring Nicholas Cage & Hayden Christensen

Here's another, in the form of Nick Powell's Outcast. Cage stars alongside Hayden Christensen and Yifei Liu as a battling medieval Crusader called The White Ghost. It's Season Of The Witch all over again... but in 12th-century China.



Cage and Christensen have retired from their killing-for-God career when the story starts, and on the evidence in this clip haven't seen each other for a while. They re-team, however, to help the children of a deposed Chinese emperor battle their murderous usurper uncle (Andy On).

Powell is a stunt-man and second-unit director with credits on Bourne, X-Men, Gladiator, The Last Samurai, and Paul WS Anderson's Three Musketeers and Resident Evil: Retribution. This is his debut as a fully-fledged director, and it's looking like his long experience of battle choreography has led to something fun... if not always for the right reasons.

James Dormer (the BBC Musketeers, 2011 David Bradley actioner The Holding) wrote the screenplay, and Pau…

#AndersonCooper Appears In BLACK WIDOW #12

Anderson Cooper Makes His Marvel Comics Debut in November’s BLACK WIDOW #12!
This November, CNN’s own Anderson Cooper makes his Marvel Universe debut for a special, Marvel Comics only, investigative report that begs the question – is the Black Widow truly the Avenger we want?

Those questions and more will be answered in November’s issue!

The two-hour special ­– eight years in the making, from laying of the first foundation to triumphantly topping the gleaming new 104-story One World Trade Center with its spire – focuses on the construction workers who performed the Herculean task.

Watch the official trailer from WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD, starring Shailene Woodley, exclusively on Apple Trailers:

Magnolia Pictures will release WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD OnDemand September 25, 2014 and in theaters October 24, 2014.

Kat Connors is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve, a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears - just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother's absence and certainly doesn't blame her doormat of a father, Brock, for the loss. In fact, it's almost a relief. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve's disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college, she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother's departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it...

#BATMANVSUPERMAN Set Photo

As filming continues in Detroit on “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,” more and more set photos are hitting the web. First there were a handful that showed Ben Affleck as non-Batman Bruce Wayne,.

Nothing too exciting, but today we finally got some real superhero stuff.

Henry Cavill took a stroll to his trailer, trying and failing to keep his flowing Kryptonian garb under the black robe meant to stop onlookers from getting photos. But everyone in the world knows what Superman looks like. Why make Cavill throw on the extra layer? You mean Superman’s costume looks almost identical to the one in “Man of Steel”!?

As a number of side-by-sides have already pointed out, Superman’s costume in “Dawn of Justice” is slightly different than the one in “Man of Steel,” which doesn’t make sense if you think about it, right? Superman found his suit on that 18,000-year-old ship. How is there a new one? Maybe we’ll get an explanation in “Dawn of Justice.”

Where ever Kal-El did pick up this new suit, th…

TV Review: The Leftovers “Cairo”

TV Review: The Leftovers “Cairo”
By: Brandon Wolfe

It would appear that Kevin Garvey is a bit more messed up in the head than we quite realized. While we had previously been made aware of gaps in his memory, resulting in those lost shirts and the appearance of that irate dog tied to his front porch, we see this week that Kevin’s lost time appears to be more dangerous than anyone thought. Awoken by Dean the dog-shooting mystery man (whose appearances often seem to coincide with Kevin’s forgotten escapades), Kevin finds himself in the middle of the woods. When he asks Dean how he got there, a confused and somewhat hurt Dean fills him in: the two of them kidnapped Patti, the silently snide leader of the Guilty Remnant, the night before, roughed her up and tied her to a chair in a cabin Kevin that visited as a child. Dean wants to know what happens next, but a stunned Kevin is still trying to process what happened before.



Kevin implores Patti that he is sorry for what he has done and asks…

Mark Wahlberg In Talks To Star In Deepwater Horizon

The 2010 explosion on the gigantic Gulf of Mexico oil rig Deepwater Horizon made headlines around the world not only for the immediate tragedy of workers who lost their lives in the accident, but for the wider damage caused to the local environment. A film about the tragedy was pushed into development a couple of years ago and Mark Wahlberg is now in talks to star.

All Is Lost director J.C. Chandor is overseeing the film, which is now likely to feature Wahlberg as the second-in-command on the rig in the 48 hours up leading up to the disaster and the day itself. The behind-the-scenes tale will highlight stories of real-life heroism around the incident, which were not made public at the time but appeared in the script’s source material, the New York Times article Deepwater Horizon’s Final Hour. The paper’s piece chronicled how 11 people were killed and 16 injured when the rig blew.

Chandor is currently looking to kick off filming in either late spring or early summer next year, to give …
