Why ‘The Conjuring’ Could Become the Biggest Horror Franchise of the Century

14 August 2017 1:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Four movies in — with at least three more on deck — and the burgeoning The Conjuring Universe is continuing to scare up big box office bucks with no sign of slowing down. Even during the downturned, dog days of summer, the latest film in the franchise, prequel-to-a-sequel “Annabelle: Creation,” topped out as the weekend’s biggest winner, pulling in over $35 million in domestic returns and handily dispatching with its nearest competition (“Dunkirk,” now in its fourth week, made just $11.4 million to take second place). The 21st century has already played home to one of the genre’s biggest hit franchises ever and has steadily rolled out new offerings that seem destined to inspire their own series but, for now, “The Conjuring” is king. And it won’t stop until it becomes the biggest horror franchise of the century.

The franchise has some stiff competition, including the “Paranormal Activity” films ($401.4 million) and »

Why the Woody Allen ‘Difficult People’ Parody Exposes the Power of His Legacy

9 August 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The news cycle surrounding Woody Allen these days tends to go as follows: Reminder of previous allegations, followed by announcement of new film, followed by talent in new project being asked about allegations, followed by new film receiving either critical acclaim or relative indifference, followed by new reminder of previous allegations.

Right now, we’re in the “announcement of new film” phase, with Tuesday’s casting of Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, and Selena Gomez in Allen’s upcoming untitled feature film. But that same morning, Hulu premiered the most savage takedown yet of not just Woody Allen’s modern day work as an auteur, but the cult of personality around him.

Difficult People” in general and creator Julie Klausner in particular have never been shy about poking fun at certain topics the rest of Hollywood might consider taboo. Just consider the metric ton of jokes about Kevin Spacey’s sexuality »

The Lrm Interview with Lego Batman Movie Director Chris McKay

9 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Fans of Batman are going to get an extra special treat this weekend as Will Arnett’s incarnation of the Caped Crusader introduced in 2014’s The Lego Movie gets his very own solo adventure in The Lego Batman Movie, opening Friday. 

The animated film is directed by Chris McKay, who was animation director on The Lego Movie and who cut his teeth as a director and producer of Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken before joining Phil Lord and Chris Miller to create a new animated Lego universe.

In the new movie, Batman has to deal with the fact that his desire to be a loner has left him rather lonely (not that he’ll admit it) and the introduction of a young orphan named Dick Grayson (voiced by Michael Cera) and the new Commissioner, Barbara Gordon (Rosario Scott), gives him and Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) a chance to form a family »

Film Review: ‘The Bye Bye Man’

12 January 2017 6:01 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Horror films used to play by the rules. These days, though, especially when they involve haunted houses, they often have a visually promiscuous, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink quality that toys with the audience in ways that don’t always fit together. (The audience’s attitude toward this smorgasbord-of-fear factor tends to be a shrug of “Whatever works.”) “The Bye Bye Man” falls somewhere in between those two poles. The movie lays down its rules and follows them, and then breaks them. Yet even when it seems to be making things up as it goes along, its slapdash hallucinatory quality is a token gesture toward placing you inside the characters’ heads.

In a rural area just outside Madison, three students at the University of Wisconsin — tall sexy geek Elliot (Douglas Smith), his come-hither girlfriend Sasha (Cressida Bonas), and his smooth jock Bff John (Lucien Laviscount) — arrange to room together off-campus in a rundown old »
