10 observations about the cover of Vanity Fair's new Hollywood issue

1 February 2016 12:01 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Every year Vanity Fair treats us to a spellbinding showbiz spectacle with its Hollywood issue, which celebrates A-list actors by having them lounge all over each other like West End chaises. Check out the 2016 class, photographed by (who else?) Annie Leibovitz.     1. At first Cate Blanchett appears to be reclining on Viola Davis, but judging by the height of her lean, she actually scaled Viola Davis and planted an Australian flag on her shoulder blade. "Me and Viola, we're in this together," her posture suggests. Viola's posture suggests the rebuttal, "Maybe, if I have time."  2. Jennifer Lawrence is going for some kind of thug head-lean here? Jane Fonda chuckles and says, "Let her try."  3. How have we gone this long without realizing Brie Larson and Alicia Vikander are the same person? I haven't seen Oscar doppelgangering of this kind since 2009 when Vera Farmiga and Maggie Gyllenhaal were co-nominated and spent all »

Trailer Trashin’: More Fact-Based Period Horror in The Conjuring 2 Teaser Trailer

15 January 2016 2:00 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. I hope the year is off to a good start for all of you. It’s coming to you later than I intended, but here’s the first Trailer Trashin’ column of 2016. Now let’s take a look at the teaser trailer for director James Wan’s upcoming horror sequel The Conjuring 2.

Premise: Husband and wife paranormal investigators Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.

My take: Ever since I first saw The Conjuring (2013), it’s been one of my favorite horror movies. Inspired by the work of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, it was a smartly written, sharply directed film with good scares, a talented cast playing characters we actually cared about, and which made good use of its period 1970s setting. »

Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled brand new photos from their upcoming lineup of films hitting cinemas in 2016.

Above is Tom Hanks with director/producer Clint Eastwood on the set of the upcoming film Sully.

However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career.

Sully also stars Aaron Eckhart (“Olympus Has Fallen,” “The Dark Knight”) as Sully’s co-pilot, Jeff Skiles, and Oscar nominee Laura Linney (“The Savages,” “Kinsey,” Showtime’s “The Big C”) as Sully’s wife, Lorraine Sullenberger.

The Conjuring 2 Trailer: This Time the Scary Children Are British

7 January 2016 8:46 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After The Conjuring was a reasonably sized hit at the box office, it was only time until we got The Conjuring 2, and as anyone knows, the easiest way for a horror movie to one-up its predecessor is to make the scary children British. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson return as real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, now on a trip to Enfield, England, though still wearing adorable seventies outfits. The Conjuring 2 arrives in theaters on June 10 and, if it does well enough, maybe we'll get a Conjuring 3. Though really, Vera and Patrick might want to look into a new line of work — paranormal investigating can't come with a good health-care plan. »

Watch: First Trailer for Vera Farmiga’s ‘Conjuring 2’ Promises Plenty of Scares

7 January 2016 1:31 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Line has released the first trailer for “The Conjuring 2,” offering up a chilling conversation between a young girl and Vera Farmiga’s paranormal investigator character.

“It said it wants to hurt you,” the girl says. “Right now.”

The trailer portrays a bleak countryside home and sets the film, with James Wan returning to direct, in Enfield, England in 1977. Other than offering creepy sound effects, a rotating crucifix on a wall and a shadowy figure about to pounce, the trailer appears to be largely spoiler-free.

The “Conjuring” sequel had originally been set for a pre-Halloween release on Oct. 23, 2015, but New Line decided last year to move it back to a prime summer release date of June 10 — similar to its predecessor, which was moved into the summer after New Line received strong response at preview screenings.

New Line scored a massive surprise hit in 2013 with Wan directing the supernatural thriller, which »

James Wan Returns To Horror With The Conjuring 2; Trailer Debut

7 January 2016 12:54 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

2013’s The Conjuring scared the living hell out of audiences and further established director James Wan as a bonafide master of horror. The film, which was based on one of the many cases of demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, did exceptionally well at the box office. A sequel to the film was a must, and it was announced soon after that Wan would return to direct the film, which would this time be about the Warrens’ case in Enfield, London.

Shooting came and went, and this morning the official trailer for The Conjuring 2 dropped and oh boy is it a frightening one. Could this sequel (which sees Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson returning to their roles of Ed and Lorraine Warren) live up, or be better than the first film? I don’t know, it looks like that could be case. What do you fright fanatics think? We can all see if it is, »

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga battle evil spirits in first teaser trailer for The Conjuring 2

7 January 2016 12:49 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ed and Lorraine Warren are back to fight a new evil demon.

The real life couple, who practice as demonologists, provided the source material for one of the scariest horror films in recent memory, The Conjuring. What we didn’t realize then was that their files could give birth to a whole new horror franchise. We're going to have a super hard time sleeping tonight after watching the teaser trailer for the sequel, The Conjuring 2, which already has us looking over our shoulders.

This time documenting a poltergeist in Enfield, England that torments a single mother and her four children, The Conjuring 2 features more religious elements, including an intensely freaky scene involving crucifixes, promising to be even creepier than its predecessor. Director James Wan is back to deliver the scares, and frankly, there isn't anyone we'd rather have behind the camera.

The film stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, as »

First Trailer For The Conjuring 2

7 January 2016 12:43 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

After a brief detour into the world of over the top with Fast & Furious 7, James Wan is firmly back in the world of horror with the sequel to what has to be his finest hour, The Conjuring. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are back as real life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren as they travel to Enfield in North London to tackle the case of a single mother and her four children plagued by restless spirits. Yes, this is the case of The Enfield Poltergeist, which gripped England in the late 1970s. While it doesn’t give too much away, the first teaser trailer promises Wan hasn’t missed a step after his brief trip away from the genre. Sure, it feels a bit too familiar (the upside crosses, I’m looking at you), but there’s a deeply unsettling tone running through it, and you just know »

'The Conjuring 2' trailer: This time, with British accents

7 January 2016 12:22 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Based on the first trailer, The Conjuring 2 appears to have everything you could want from a Conjuring movie: languid shots drifting ominously down dark corridors; the eerie sounds of a music box winding down; upside down crosses; pale ghouls leaping from the shadows; "Based on a true story" claims despite the case in question probably being a hoax; Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson in period garb; kid tears.  In fact, the only thing that's different this time around, as far as I can tell, is that some of the characters speak in British accents (the film is set in London, where Ed and Lorraine Warren absolutely 100% battled a ghoul known as the "Enfield Poltergeist"). Pip-pip, Cheerio, and all that sort of rot! Watch the trailer above and below.  The Conjuring 2 is in theaters on June 10. »

The Enfield Poltergeist Haunts Ed And Lorraine Warren In Full Trailer For The Conjuring 2

7 January 2016 11:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If yesterday’s teaser tested our nerves with an eerie peek into the history of the Enfield Poltergeist, then New Line Cinema’s first full trailer for The Conjuring 2 serves up an assault on the senses, showcasing what happens when Ed and Lorraine Warren are drawn back into the realm of all things supernatural.

When there’s something strange spotted in the neighborhood of Brimsdown, Enfield, Peggy Hodgson is left with little choice but to call the Warrens – Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga – the real-life paranormal investigators that underpin New Line Cinema’s budding horror franchise. This time around, returning director James Wan is weaving his horror sequel around the purported true story of the Enfield haunting, where a demonic possession brought terror upon Hodgson and her vulnerable four children during the late 70s.

Of all the siblings to be most affected, it’s Madison Wolfe’s Janet that experiences »
