Event Report: Warner Bros. Studio Tour’s “Horror Made Here” Halloween Celebration is an Exciting Mix of Small-Town Fun and Hollywood Scares

16 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Last year, this writer had the opportunity to attend Warner Bros. Studios’ first iteration of their “Horror Made Here” Halloween-themed celebration that took attendees all over the WB lot for a multi-media experience. For this year, though, they really upped the fun factor by streamlining the event, and embracing all these amazing properties that have done so well for both WB as well as New Line Cinema. There were Freddy Kruegers running amok, Valak was coming out of the walls, and even a few Gremlins showed up in the shadows to boot.

All in all, “Horror Made Here” was an absolutely sublime time, especially as a genre fan who grew up on so many of these properties, and I really enjoyed how WB successfully managed to bring together this small-town feel with some big-time horror icons, and if you’re in the Los Angeles area over the next few weekends, »

New to Streaming: ‘The Untamed,’ Jean-Luc Godard, ‘Whose Streets?,’ and More

20 October 2017 5:14 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Cinema Through the Eye of Magnum (Sophie Bassaler)

When one conjures iconic memories from cinema history, they might be of your favorite shot or sequence, but my mind often travels to behind-the-scenes photos featuring director, cast, crew, and beyond. These photographs often have a unifying connection: they come from Magnum Photos. Since 1947, the photographic cooperative — founded by such iconic names as Robert Capa amd Henri Cartier-Bresson — has been responsible »

L.A. Film Festival Moving to September From June, Partnering With Arclight

18 October 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Moving into awards season, the Los Angeles Film Festival will shift from mid-June to mid-September for its 24th edition next year.

Film Independent, which operates the festival, also announced Wednesday a multi-year partnership with the ArcLight Cinemas chain. The festival has been headquartered at the Arclight Culver City for the past two years.

The move will put the L.A. Film Festival into the heart of awards season. It will follow the Venice International Film Festival, which begins in late August; the Telluride Film Festival, which runs over Labor Day; and the Toronto Intl. Film Festival, which starts three days after Labor Day. The Los Angeles festival would be ending next year just as the New York Film Festival is starting.

In its June slot, the L.A. Film Festival took place a few weeks after the Cannes Film Festival.

The L.A. Film Festival has been aiming in recent years to put an emphasis on films »

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Composer Benjamin Wallfisch on the Unique Score, Experimenting, & Vangelis

17 October 2017 7:57 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Composer Benjamin Wallfisch has been a very busy guy lately. Over the past 18 months he’s composed the scores to Hidden Figures, A Cure for Wellness, Annabelle: Creation, It, and Blade Runner 2049, and he worked with Hans Zimmer on some key pieces of the Dunkirk score. Working on just one or two of these films would be challenging enough, but that Wallfisch not only lent his talents to the aforementioned films but crafted unique, memorable scores for each one is mighty impressive. Blade Runner 2049 may have been the most challenging of the bunch, as Wallfisch and Hans … »

‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’: Looking Back on the Slasher Classic 20 Years Later

17 October 2017 6:13 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

With Halloween quickly approaching, horror fans everywhere are in search of the next great scary movie. While 2017 has been a phenomenal year for the genre -- with standouts like Split, Annabelle: Creation, It and Get Out -- audiences need only to look back on the late ’90s slasher era for some of horror’s best thrills. 

The genre was more popular than ever thanks to the colossal success of Scream in 1996, with almost every major film studio attempting to recreate that same magic. Soon, everything from Urban Legends to a new installment of Halloween with Jamie Lee Curtis followed. Between 1996 and 2000, the horror genre was at an all-time high. So high, it almost became hard to keep track of them all. 

But one slasher film in particular stands out among the rest: I Know What You Did Last Summer, which came out 20 years ago on Oct. 17, 1997.

It’s not all that surprising, given the screenplay »

Annabelle 2 Crosses Huge Horror Milestone at the Box Office

16 October 2017 10:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It (no pun intended) has been an absolutely outstanding year for horror movies. Not only has there been an unusual amount of quality thrillers getting a wide release, but the majority of them have been crushing it at the box office. One such movie is Annabelle 2, which has officially crossed the $300 million mark at the global box office. That makes it one of the biggest hits of the year for any studio, at least where profitability is concerned.

According to Box Office Mojo, Annabelle: Creation, with a few additional box office dollars from around the world over the weekend, now has a grand total of $301.4 million worldwide. The movie is really slowing down, as it's been out since early August, but that is a pretty significant milestone for this particular movie. Since New Line and director David F. Sandberg managed to make the movie for a reported $15 million production budget, »

Annabelle: Creation Soars Past $300 Million Worldwide

15 October 2017 5:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Conjuring universe continues to go from strength to strength.

With New Line and Warner’s creepy franchise beginning to take hold, Deadline brings word that its latest instalment, a nerve-shredding prequel by the name of Annabelle: Creation, has now surpassed $300 million at the worldwide box office (off a budget of $15 million, no less).

To be exact, it’s now sitting pretty at $301.5 million, this coming shortly after it became the highest grossing horror film of 2017 – well, until It came along, that is. Not only that, but to put things into perspective, the first movie earned $256.8 million back when it released in 2014 and now, the Conjuring franchise has reached $1.2 billion globally. Not bad, eh?

Directed by David Sandberg of Lights Out fame, Creation launched as a prequel in August and is still playing in select theaters across the States. That means New Line’s spinoff will likely collect a bit »

8: new Stephen King TV adaptation on the way

13 October 2017 1:13 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

John Saavedra Kirsten Howard Oct 16, 2017

Stephen King's Lovecraftian novella, N., is coming to the small screen...and it will be called 8.

You could almost say Stephen King has risen from the dead, except that his popularity never died out in the first place.

See related  Star Trek: Netflix reveals the most rewatched episodes New on Netflix UK: what's added in October 2017?

Yet another adaptation has been announced in the Year Of King. The author's novella, 'N.,' is set to become a TV series from Gaumont TV. The show won't be called 'N.,' though. Instead, the project will be titled 8.

'N.' is the story of a man who has been diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder, but in true King fashion, something way more sinister might be behind the man's suffering, as he becomes increasingly obsessed with a Stonehenge-like formation of stones in Maine that »

James Wan's The Children Brings in Bloodline Star Linda Cardellini

10 October 2017 8:08 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If there's a modern king of horror, his name is James Wan. The man responsible for The Conjuring and Saw is currently directing Aquaman, but he's got his plate full of other, horror-related projects he's producing as well. One of his next movies is a horror/thriller titled The Children, which has just locked down Linda Cardellini (Daddy's Home) for the lead role. Not much has been revealed about the movie, but with James Wan and an intriguing star leading the cast, this is already shaping up to be one you're going to want to keep on your radar.

It appears that, for now, New Line Cinema is keeping the details on The Children mostly under wraps. According to Variety, who broke the news of Linda Cardellini's casting, the movie "follows a social worker who, while investigating the mysterious disappearance of two children, discovers her own family might also be in jeopardy. »

The Lost Boys Is the Best Halloween Movie Says It Screenwriter

8 October 2017 2:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gary Dauberman wrote Annabelle: Creation and co-wrote the screenplay for It, which has become the highest grossing horror movie in history. So, when it comes to discussing horror movie, Dauberman might know a thing or two about the genre and has come out to proclaim that 1987's The Lost Boys is the best movie to watch around Halloween. That's a pretty bold statement, but he makes several good points that will make you want to throw it up next in the watch list, especially if you haven't seen it in a while. Plus, it's the 30th anniversary, so might as well celebrate 30 years of The Lost Boys while you're at it.

Gary Dauberman is currently riding a huge wave of box office success with It and he recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to recommend a spooky Halloween movie. Those thinking that he might plug his own movie, which is out in theaters right now, »

We obviously love summer, but there’s something about October that we can’t get enough of. Falling leaves, a chance to finally break out our favourite sweaters, and Halloween (easily our favourite holiday) all make the colder weather bearable. October is also the unofficial beginning of awards season, with studios releasing their biggest contenders as the year winds down.

While there are tons of cool movies hitting Cineplex theatres this month, there are also plenty of exciting movies coming to the Cineplex Store that you can watch from the coziness of your own home. We’ve picked five of our favourites for you here, so read on to see what new Cineplex Store title you should »

R-Rated Movies Are Taking Over the Box Office and ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Could Be Next

3 October 2017 7:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Denis Villeneuve’s much-hyped, long-in-the-making, and already critically beloved “Blade Runner 2049” hits theaters this Friday, it will be joining some unexpected company: a slew of other R-rated features that are already dominating the box office. This past weekend’s big winners may have initially made waves because of the oddly crowded nature of their ticket returns — each of the top three, including horror holdover “It,” the Tom Cruise actioner “American Made,” and comic book sequel “Kingsman: The Secret Circle,” made just over $17M — but its their adult-skewing ratings that tell the more compelling story.

As The Washington Post notes, it’s not just that this past weekend’s box office was dominated by R-rated films, it’s that 2017 as a whole has already played home to a staggering number of R-rated performers, from critical darlings to horror outings and everything in between, with more on the way.
