Trailers for WWE Studios’ Leprechaun: Origins and See No Evil 2

26 July 2014 4:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

WWE Studios has released trailers for two of its upcoming horror movies in the reboot Leprechaun: Origins and the slasher sequel See No Evil 2, and you can check them both out below…

Leprechaun: Origins will see two couples backpack through Irish countryside but they “quickly discover the idyllic land is not what it appears to be be when [the] town’s residents offer the hikers an old cabin at the edge of the woods. Soon, the friends will find that one of Ireland’s most famous legends is a terrifying reality.”

The film is directed by Zach Lipovsky and stars WWE Superstar Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl (Muppets Most Wanted) in the role made famous by Warwick Davi, alongside Stephanie Bennett (Grave Encounters 2), Andrew Dunbar (Alien Trespass), Melissa Roxburgh (Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days) and Brendan Fletcher (Freddy vs Jason).

Watch the New Trailer for Leprechaun: Origins

25 July 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The Leprechaun has the ultimate luck of the Irish, but those who cross his path have some of the worst luck in the world. The horror franchise that began in 1993 will be reborn late this summer with Leprechaun: Origins, and a new trailer for the film has been released at Comic-Con, along with a first-look image of the Leprechaun.

This time around, the Leprechaun is portrayed by WWE Superstar Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl. From Lionsgate Home Entertainment, Leprechaun: Origins is set for an August 26th VOD release and will come out on Blu-ray and DVD on September 30th. We have the film’s recently released Comic-Con trailer that gives us the first glimpses of the Leprechaun as he stalks a group of backpackers, as well as the first Leprechaun image revealed at Comic-Con (image courtesy of Variety!):

Sdcc – Our first look at Leprechaun in Leprechaun: Origins

25 July 2014 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming out from their panel during Comic-Con, we have our first look at Dylan Postl (aka WWE’s Hornswoggle) in the reboot of the Leprechaun franchise, Leprechaun: Origins. Here’s the image…

Quite the departure wouldn’t you say?

Director Zach Lipovsky said in an interview with Bloody Disgusting, “Our Leprechaun is completely different than what you’re used to seeing in movies and elsewhere,” Lipovsky continues. “Our approach was to make something that could really be out there. Something more organic and less fairy tale. Our creature is something that clearly has biological roots. That being said, it does have all the traits you’d expect from a Leprechaun… the pointy ears, the lust for gold… but ours also has the skin of… let’s say a naked mole rat. It has dead things hanging off of it… we took a very dark and disturbing approach when it came to bringing it to life. »

Trailer for WWE's Horror Thriller Leprechaun: Origins

10 June 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

EW

WWE Studios has released the first trailer for their horror movie Leprechaun: Origins, which is a reboot of the original cult franchise. I've enjoyed the Leprechaun films that have been made over the years because of how absurd they were. I was especially entertained by the cheesy humor. The reboot seems to have ditched the humor aspect of the franchise and the filmmakers seem to be going for more scares this time around. As much as I enjoy horror films, this doesn't look that good to me. 

"Leprechaun: Origins concerns two young couples who, while backpacking through the Irish countryside, 'quickly discover the idyllic land is not what it appears to be be when [a] town’s residents offer the hikers an old cabin at the edge of the woods. Soon, the friends will find that one of Ireland’s most famous legends is a terrifying reality.'”

Well, here’s some pretty “big” news (hur hur). The trailer for WWE Studios and Lionsgate’s reboot to the Leprechaun franchise, Leprechaun: Origins, has been released online via Entertainment Weekly. The film was set to be released on the big screen but will now be pushed out as on VOD, Digital On Demand and Pay Per View on August 26th. Leprechaun: Origins will then be released on DVD on August 30th.

Leprechaun: Origins is the seventh entry in the franchise and is directed by Zach Lipovsky and written by first-timer Harris Wilkinson. The film features WWE Superstar Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl (Muppets Most Wanted) as the tituar Leprechaun, taking over for Warrick Davis who played the character in the previous movies.

The Leprechaun series of movies have always been light in tone but, like Curse of Chucky did for Child’s Play last year, this entry looks to be taking things more seriously. »
