Surprise Third ‘Blair Witch’ Movie Gets Trailer, September Release
Lionsgate has set a Sept. 16 launch for Blair Witch, the third film in the found-footage horror franchise — and the first in 16 years.
The studio revealed the project Friday night at Comic-Con at what had been billed as a screening of “The Woods,” releasing a poster and trailer. The updated story, directed by Adam Wingard, is set in the remote Maryland woods where three filmmakers disappeared 20 years ago.
“Blair Witch” centers on a group of college students venturing into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of the sister of one of the students — who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods, but as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence.

Box Office: ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Dominates Opening Weekend, Blasts Toward $60 Million
Paramount’s “Star Trek Beyond” is dominating at the U.S. box office as the latest entry in the durable franchise heads to a solid $60 million opening weekend, estimates showed Saturday.
The 13th “Star Trek” movie is performing in line with forecasts and will wind up the weekend with more than double the nearest rival — Illumination-Universal’s third frame of hit animated comedy “The Secret Life of Pets” with about $28 million at 4,048 locations. “Pets” will finish with nearly $260 million in its first 17 days.
Fox’s launch of animated comedy “Ice Age: Collision Course” debuted in third place with a somewhat disappointing $21 million at 3,992 sites as “The Secret Life of Pets” blunted its potential attraction in the family space. New Line’s opening of horror-thriller “Lights Out” could edge past the fifth Ice Age film as it was outperforming forecasts with $20.4 million at 2,818 venues.
Sony’s second weekend of “Ghostbusters” could »

James Wan's Aquaman Movie Lands One Time Justice League Scribe Will Beall
Aquaman may have a release date (July 27th, 2018), but for some reason, it's become one of those movies many fans refuse to believe is happening until the cameras start rolling. James Wan is going to be at the helm, and now it has a writer in the form of Will Beall. If that name rings a bell, it's because he was hired to pen Justice League before Chris Terrio took over the project for Zack Snyder. It was revealed way back in 2014 that Warner Bros. were developing Aquaman on dual tracks, meaning they hired Beall and Kurt Johnstad to work on one script while David Leslie Johnson (The Conjuring 2) did another. Then, the plan was possibly to merge them, something which worried many fans. That didn't pan out anyway, and Beall moved on to work on the Training Day TV show. However, he's now been rehired to rewrite the screenplay by himself as, »

Guy Ritchie Goes Medieval With ‘King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword’ Starring Charlie Hunnam [Watch The First Trailer]
“Luke Skywalker was always the most uninteresting character in ‘Star Wars’ because he’s the good guy. Good guys are boring,” Guy Ritchie said last year referring to his new protagonist who’s not just a knight in shining armor.

Heroes Unite In Epic First Trailer For Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’

‘Wonder Woman’ Trailer: Gal Gadot Is A Major Badass Warrior In First Look
The trailer is striking, with Diana, princess of the Amazons, being a total badass and independent woman. The first shot sees Wonder Woman finding Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) unconscious on the beach. Taking a look at her home and her mother Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), the scenes are breathtaking. We then see Trevor and Diana embark on a journey when he tells her about a massive conflict in the outside world. Hoping that she can stop the threat, she fights alongside men and discovers her full power and her true destiny.
The almost three-minute video has incredible action sequences, dark tones and the cinematography is amazing. »
