One Day at a Time Reboot Gets Premiere Date at Netflix

19 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Netflix (perhaps in a happenstance manner) celebrated Norman Lear’s 94th birthday by announcing on Wednesday a premiere date for its “reimagining” of One Day at a Time, one of myriad sitcoms the TV legend shepherded over the decades.

Premiering Friday, Jan. 6, 2017, the new series follows a Cuban-American family led by a recently separated, former military mom (Queen of the South‘s Justina Machado) as she navigates a new single life while raising her radical teenaged daughter (Matador‘s Isabella Gomez) and ‘tween son (Marcel Ruiz), with the “help” of her old-school, Cuban-born mom (Egot winner Rita Moreno) and a »

Mike Flanagan’s Ouija: Origin Of Evil Trailer Looks Way Better than Its Predecessor

24 June 2016 6:32 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Let’s face it, Ouija was pretty much worthless. It was forgettable and a wasted opportunity. The end product was definitely the result of too many hands in the pot. However, Universal knows that acquiring the license of using the “Ouija” name is definitely something that should be capitalized upon. It also doesn’t hurt that the first film did well at the box office, probably based off the name. Luckily for horror fans, they got a great director in Mike Flanagan to take a crack at the franchise and judging from the trailer, this should have been the original film.

Ouija: Origin of Evil arrives in theaters October 21st from Universal Pictures. Henry Thomas (Betrayal), Annalise Basso (Oculus), Elizabeth Reaser (“True Detective”), Lulu Wilson (Deliver Us from Evil), Parker Mack (MTV’s “Faking It”), Sam Anderson, Kate Siegel (Demon Legacy), and Doug Jones (Hellboy, “Fear Itself”) star.

First Full Trailer for Board Game Horror Prequel 'Ouija: Origin of Evil'

23 June 2016 7:32 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It was never just a game. Universal has unveiled a trailer for the upcoming horror prequel Ouija: Origin of Evil, the follow-up to the Ouija movie from 2014. Did anyone even want a sequel to the first one? The film has quite a cast: Henry Thomas, Elizabeth Reaser, Doug Jones, Parker Mack, Sam Anderson, Kate Siegel, Annalise Basso, and Lulu Wilson. The plot for this one involves a young daughter of a family being taken over by a malevolent spirit, and things get increasingly freaky from there. I can't help but say this looks fairly generic, with some bland scares and the usual horror tropes, nothing unique. Oh well. Here's the first official trailer for Mike Flanagan's Ouija: Origin of Evil, direct from YouTube: Inviting audiences again into the lore of the spirit board, Ouija: Origin of Evil tells a terrifying new tale as the follow-up to 2014’s sleeper hit. »

Watch: ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’ Trailer Heads to the ’60s for Dark Scares

23 June 2016 2:07 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Evil, unsurprisingly, dominates in the trailer for Universal’s “Ouija: Origin of Evil” with a small girl named Doris — played with malevolent intensity by Lulu Wilson — being overtaken by a merciless force.

“Do you know what it feels like to be strangled to death?” she asks at one point.

The movie, a prequel to the 2014 hit “Ouija,” is set in 1965 Los Angeles as a widowed mother (played by Elizabeth Reaser) and her two daughters add a new stunt to bolster their at-home séance scam business. The strains of Herman’s Hermits’ relentlessly upbeat 1964 hit “Something Good” provide a strong counterpoint to the growing evil-doings in the trailer.

Henry Thomas, best remembered as Elliot from “E.T. — The Extraterrestrial,” plays a concerned priest from Doris’ school. “I believe she is channeling powers we do not understand,” he says with urgency.

Universal has given “Ouija: Origin of Evil” an Oct. 21 release date. »

First Trailer For Ouija Sequel Chronicles The Origin Of Evil

23 June 2016 1:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bringing together the Oculus crack team of director Mike Flanagan and Annalise Basso, Universal is aligning Oculus: Origin of Evil to be its tentpole scarefest going into the 2016 Halloween corridor, and today the studio has conjured up our first look at the supernatural sequel in action.

In collaboration with Blumhouse Productions, the follow-up will be hoping to strike box office gold in the vein of its forebear, which proved to be one of the sleeper hits of 2014 after pulling in an overly impressive $102 million off the back of a meagre $2 million budget.

Fast forward two years and now, Origin of Evil will thrust moviegoers back to the Los Angeles of the 1960s, where unspeakable evil stalks a widowed mother and her two daughters. Toying with supernatural forces beyond their controls, things go from bad to horrible in today’s reveal trailer, which also spotlights the sequel’s principal cast: Elizabeth Reaser, »

‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’ Trailer: Something Tells Me This 1965-Set Horror Prequel Isn’t Into Something Good

23 June 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Any eight-year-old can tell you that toying with Ouija boards is asking for trouble, but how many movies would be left if premises based on bad decisions were no longer allowed? 2014’s “Ouija” was inevitable in our current films-based-on-toys moment; once it made more than $100 million against a $5 million budget, so was its upcoming sequel. (According to a tweet from Jason Blum, it’s also better than its predecessor.) Watch the trailer for “Ouija: Origin of Evil” now…unless you’re scared.

About a widowed mother who hosts séances in her home, “Origin of Evil” is a prequel set in 1965 with an entirely new cast. The charlatan’s young daughter gets her hands on the board game/spiritual device this time around, so you can probably imagine much of what happens on your lonesome. »

Ouija: Origin of Evil Trailer Goes Back to the Beginning

23 June 2016 11:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in the fall of 2014, producers Jason Blum and Michael Bay turned a board game into a low-budget sleeper hit with Ouija, which earned $103.5 million worldwide from just a $5 million budget. While the original thriller was set in present day, the upcoming follow-up Ouija: Origin of Evil takes us back 50 years, as you can see in the first trailer and poster. Inviting audiences again into the lore of the spirit board, Ouija: Origin of Evil tells a terrifying new tale as the follow-up to 2014's horror blockbuster that opened at number one.

Mike Flanagan Attempts to Save a Franchise in First Trailer for ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’

23 June 2016 10:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After the back-to-back success of Oculus and Hush, writer-director Mike Flanagan will release his third feature of the year (after September’s Before I Wake) with Ouija: Origin of Evil. The first trailer introduces the family the film centers around, as their Ouija board scam becomes an all-too-chilling reality when the youngest member of the family gets in touch with an evil spirit.

The first film did well at the box-office (though much less so with critics, holding a 7% on Rotten Tomatoes) and it remains to be seen if Flanagan can balance studio needs with a more critically-minded eye. Other than a creepy use of a split-focus diopter, the trailer features traditional PG-13 horror conceits such as harsh lighting, a gliding camera, and a creepy child to try and deliver its scares.

See the trailer below, along with a poster, for the film starring Henry Thomas, Elizabeth Reaser, Doug Jones, »

This Horror Sequel Will Make You Never Want to Touch a Ouija Board Ever Again

23 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

As 2016 stretches into Summer and Fall, the year's biggest horror movies have begun to arrive in droves. The latest scary film to come forth from the ether is Ouija: Origin of Evil. A follow-up to 2014's Ouija, it functions as a sort of prequel to its predecessor. With former Grey's Anatomy guest star and Twilight actress Elizabeth Reaser in the lead, the events take us back to the 1960s and focus on a young girl who gets possessed by the evil spirits she conjures with a Ouija board. Given the success of the stylized nostalgia behind 2013's The Conjuring and 2016's follow-up sequel, we could be in for a terrifying treat. »

Joe Swanberg Anthology Comedy Easy Plucks Starry Ensemble Ahead Of Netflix Debut

14 March 2016 12:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hannah Takes the Stairs and Uncle Kent director Joe Swanberg’s has assembled a star-studded lineup for Easy, a new anthology series headed to Netflix.

Toplining the casting bill are Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, Michael Chernus, Marc Maron, Elizabeth Reaser, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jake Johnson, Aya Cash, Dave Franco, Jane Adams and Hannibal Burress – who recently joined the ranks of Paramount’s Baywatch opposite Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.

Written, directed and executive produced by Swanberg, the indie drama represents a passion project for the creator, and retains elements – albeit slack elements – of mumblecore filmmaking. That is, in essence, a creative process that favors low-key techniques and improvised dialog in order to nurture a lax and ultimately more believable viewing experience. Lena Dunham, the Duplass brothers and Lynn Shelton are among the few creators that still employ such a technique.

Joe Swanberg's career has moved to the beat of his own drum. While he can't seem to shake the now passé mumblecore tag, the writer/director/jack of all trades has developed from his own hyper-indie early works to attracting well known actors to feature in movies like "Drinking Buddies," "Happy Christmas" and "Digging For Fire." And his next career leap finds him going to Netflix, where he'll bring his strong work ethic to a brand new series.  Read More: Interview: Joe Swanberg Talks Personal Filmmaking, Paul Mazursky & The Inspiration Of "Friday Night Lights' Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, Michael Chernus, Marc Maron, Elizabeth Reaser, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jake Johnson, Aya Cash, Dave Franco, Jane Adams and Hannibal Burress are lining up for "Easy."
