Liam Neeson-Fronted Thriller The Commuter Bumped To 2018

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From the moment Pierre Morel’s Taken unlocked a very particular set of skills in Liam Neeson, the actor’s résumé has been a roller-coaster ride of triumphant highs (The Grey) and disappointing lows (Takens 2 and 3). But a patchy record has in no way cooled Neeson’s interest in the action genre, as he’ll soon be back, back, back, as an unassuming insurance salesman for The Commuter.

Pitched as North by Northwest meets Strangers on a TrainJaume Collet-Serra’s high-speed thriller was originally slated for a release in October, but we now have confirmation that The Commuter‘s journey won’t begin in earnest until January 12th, 2018. That’s a date it currently shares with Paramount’s animated flick Sherlock Gnomes, White Boy Rick and The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, which was hit with a delay of its own following Dylan O’Brien’s serious set accident. »

‘Bates Motel’ Boss Discusses Season 5 'Psycho' Overlap, Rihanna's "More Personal" Marion Crane

20 February 2017 8:04 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This article contains spoilers from the season five premiere of Bates Motel, “Dark Paradise”]

Bates Motel finally returned for its fifth and final season on Monday night, but some time has passed since viewers last left Norman (Freddie Highmore) imagining his dead mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) playing the piano at Christmastime.

The season five premiere showcased a very different mother-son relationship, a slightly contentious and manipulative offering that has been masterfully concocted inside Norman’s head. As Norman tried to move on with everyday life as the motel manager and create a niche for himself in town with some other »

Bates Motel Boss Dissects Premiere Twists, Confirms [Spoiler] Theory

Norman Bates’ final descent into Psychosis has begun.

The fifth and final season of A&E’s Bates Motel got underway Monday night, and it was completely, utterly, gloriously nuts. It was also heartbreaking. And on at least one occasion, slightly mystifying.

Below, showrunner Kerry Ehrin tackles some of my burning questions about the premiere, while also teasing what craziness awaits in the remaining nine episodes.

‘Bates Motel’ Review: Season 5 Does Right By Alfred Hitchcock By Ditching His Original Ending

20 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Bates Motel” could not exist without “Psycho,” but soon it could feel like the other way around. Part of the brilliance within Kerry Ehrin’s deep exploration of Alfred Hitchcock’s characters is how even in the modern day — and even while always promising an ending independent of the film’s narrative — it feels as though we’re being given crucial backstory to a character we only came to know as a pervert, murderer, and psychopath — in that order. Fifty-seven years later, “Bates Motel” is filling in the details by fleshing out Norman’s motivations, psychological state, and ultimate descent into madness.

[Editor’s Note: The below analysis contains spoilers for “Bates Motel” Season 4, but not the new season.]

The final season is steeped in more Hitchcockian lore than ever. There’s a subtle nod to the iconic shower scene in the first episode, when Norman mentions how he just finished installing new curtains. We get our first glimpse of Norma’s permanent residence, or at least »

Newswire: The Conjuring spin-off The Nun is coming to rap your knuckles next summer

17 February 2017 2:11 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

New Line has set a release date for The Nun, its latest spin-off from the apparently bottomless Conjuring franchise. The spectral bride of Christ (or whoever) in question originally debuted in last year’s The Conjuring 2, menacing Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson’s paranormal investigators. Now she’ll arrive in theaters to demonically rap people’s knuckles (or send them to hell, or whatever director Corin Hardy thinks is the scariest thing for a demon nun to do) on July 13, 2018. The Nun will be the second spin-off from the Conjuring flicks; demon doll Annabelle previously got her own standalone outing in 2014.

New Line has set July 13, 2018 — a Friday the 13th — for its horror film “The Nun,” a spinoff movie based on the demonic character in “The Conjuring 2” with British director Corin Hardy on board.

The studio began developing “The Nun” last June, shortly after “The Conjuring 2” opened. Producers are James Wan, who directed the two “Conjuring” movies and produced the sequel, and Peter Safran, who produced both movies. The current script for “The Nun” is written by Gary Dauberman and Wan.

The demon nun came to life in “The Conjuring 2” from a painting by Patrick Wilson’s paranormal investigator Ed Warren and later attacked Vera Farmiga’s Lorraine Warren. “The Conjuring 2” deals with the 1977 case of demonic possession of an 11-year-old British girl, played by Madison Wolfe.

Bates Motel Season 5 Review

14 February 2017 8:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided before broadcast.

In its fifth and final season, Psycho prequel series Bates Motel will finally catch up with the timeline of its cinematic precursor. What the show’s creators choose to keep or change from the original film looks to be half the fun of this season, making it especially exciting for fans of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 seminal masterpiece and grandfather of the slasher genre.

Last season’s shocking penultimate episode saw Norman Bate’s (Freddie Highmore) attempted murder-suicide result in the death of his mother (Vera Farmiga). If there was any question as to the presence of Norma Louise Bates going forward, those are answered quite emphatically during the opening moments. Jumping in time almost two years since the end of last season, we begin with Norman and Mother having breakfast together. The meeting clearly shows Norman is no longer himself but a combination of both mother and son. »

Executive producer Kerry Ehrin also revealed a little bit more information on the character: “Is there a shower scene? All I can tell you is that we pulled Psycho into Bates Motel, not vice-versa. That was always the goal and the fun of it. You will have to watch and find out!”

“Let me just preface by saying it’s one of my favorite films,” Ehrin continues. “But Marion is a woman written in the ’50s by a guy. It was very  much our goal to show you what’s going on in her head to give her more complexity… »

You can view EW's new images below, and stay tuned to Daily Dead for more coverage of Bates Motel ahead of the final season's premiere on Monday, February 20th at 10:00pm Et on A&E.

At Comic-Con 2016, Daily Dead and several other journalists spoke with Bates Motel executive producers / writers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, and they shared their thoughts on casting Rihanna as iconic Psycho character Marion Crane:

Carlton Cuse: We've been talking about putting Marion Crane in the show for a long time.We were very concerned about it because we wanted to make sure that we could do our own version of it. Funny, we ran all these things, people pitching actors who looked like [Janet] Leigh. We wanted to define »

There'll Be Another Conjuring Spinoff, And It'll Be Helmed By The Crow Director!

3 February 2017 6:14 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Boy, oh boy. The Conjuring is the gift that keeps giving for Warner Bros., isn't it?

The 2013 horror smash not only gave way to a sequel, but also a spinoff, Annabelle- which is getting its own sequel! But that's not all, folks. There's also going to be a spinoff about a character featured in The Conjuring 2!

(Sorry about all the exclamation marks. I'm a little over-caffeinated this morning!!!)

Folks who saw The Conjuring 2 were treated to one creepy freakin' nun. The being haunted Vera Farmiga's character throughout the horror sequel, which once again found James Wan at the helm. That nun left such an impression on audiences, despite not being the primary threat in the film, that it ended up garnering about as much buzz as the Annabelle doll did when it made its premiere in the first Conjuring. That's why The Nun is officially on its way. »
