Poltergeist Clip Explains the Obvious

8 May 2015 3:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Tobe Hooper's Poltergeist is a classic. It's not going to be easy for the 20th Century Fox marketing team to convince longtime fans that Gil Kenan's film might actually be a worthy remake, and they're definitely not going to do so by releasing clips like this. Collider had the honor of premiering the very first Poltergeist clip a couple of weeks ago. I can't say there was anything particularly mind-blowing about it, but it did successfully recreate an iconic scene from the original within a more modern setting. This one, however, doesn't achieve much at all. In fact, it just states the obvious in a rather dull manner. No, you don't want to spoil your big scares promoting the film, but showing off something with a little more life to it than this would have been nice.

For the soundtrack, available May 19 via Sony Classical, Kenan chose German film score composer Marc Streitenfeld, known for his collaborations with director Ridley Scott.

Poltergeist contemporizes the scary tale about a family – starring Sam Rockwell (Moon, The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy) and Rosemarie DeWitt (Cinderella Man, Rachel Getting Married) – whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces.

Poltergeist: Open a Portal to The Other Side with Collider on Periscope at 5pm Pst

7 May 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Remember when we unveiled that Poltergeist clip and told you about our Periscope event? Well, the time has come! Tonight at 5pm Pst, check out the Collider Periscope account to open a portal to “the other side,” the grim half-way point where the Poltergeist takes its victims. The portal will open for about 5 to 10 minutes at a time and give you the chance to have a personal interaction with an evil entity from the other side. In case you haven't created a Periscope account yet, it's a new app from Twitter that lets you host a live broadcast that your followers can watch in real-time. I can't say I'm hooked just yet, but I have been playing around with it quite a bit over the week and it could be a game-changer for immersive marketing. So don’t forget - tonight, starting at 5pm Pst on Periscope. You can also »

'Poltergeist' Clip and Infographic: What Is a Poltergeist?

6 May 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Dr. Claire Adams (Jane Adams) explains the differences between relatively-harmless ghosts and malevolent entities known as poltergeists in a new clip from MGM's Poltergeist remake. This scene shows Claire consulting with the Bowen family, Eric (Sam Rockwell), Amy (Rosemarie DeWitt), Kendra (Saxon Sharbino) and Griffin (Kyle Catlett), explaining that ghosts are normally "harmless apparitions" but poltergeists are violent. The end of this clip shows Amy asking if its possible that this poltergeist could have taken their youngest daughter, Madi (Kennedi Clements).

The remake was produced by legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, The Evil Dead, The Grudge) and directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House). This new version is a contemporary take the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.

The First Clip From Poltergeist Is Here!

5 May 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The closer we get to its release, the more giddy I become for Gil Kenan’s remake of the classic haunted hose movie, Poltergeist. It’s movie I loved growing up, and Kenan’s Monster House, where he made a kid’s cartoon genuinely creepy and scary, proved he’s the man for the job. Now, the first clip has come our way, turning the creep levels all the way up to eleven as the evil spirits terrorising the Bowen house begin to make their presence felt. Released: 22nd May Synopsis: Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces.

Dimensions Blur In New Poster For Gil Kenan’s Poltergeist Reboot

28 April 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With little under a month until its release, the marketing campaign for 20th Century Fox’s modern Poltergeist retelling is beginning to plateau; after all, there’s only so much of a horror film you can tease before undercutting the element of surprise. But before Gil Kenan’s reboot looms into theaters, the studio has unveiled what is surely the last poster for the upcoming movie, showcasing the fine, neon-blue line between our world and the next.

Taking a slightly different approach to the seminal, Tobe Hooper classic from 1982, the Monster House director will introduce us to a young couple portrayed by Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt who soon unearth dark, supernatural forces beneath the idyllic exterior of the new suburban home. Said forces soon manifest themselves through various electrical equipment in the house – hence that iconic shot of hands pressed against the television set – and kidnap the pair’s youngest daughter. »

Following the exciting presentation at CinemaCon last week, 20th Century Fox released some new details for their upcoming releases. Check out the official synopses along with some photos for all their 2015 and 2016 films.

The highlight of the event was the must-see film of 2015 – Ridley Scott’s The Martian.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, Nasa and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, »
