You have to see this terrifying alien encounter in the new Area 51 trailer

24 April 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The secrets and conspiracies surrounding Us base Area 51 come to life in a new science fiction horror movie.

Paranormal Activity director Oren Peli's Area 51 uses the found-footage format to bring a new kind of paranormal terror to the big screen.

Three friends mount a covert mission to break into the notorious base, where the Us is alleged to hold secrets about alien contact.

Using military-like precision to gain entrance to Area 51, the trio are soon in over their heads as they encounter technology beyond human comprehension and extraterrestrial creatures bent on being freed from their prison.

Filmmaker Peli collaborated on Area 51 with Academy Award-nominated Whiplash producer Jason Blum for his Blumhouse company.

Area 51 will be released at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas and on video-on-demand platforms on May 15. »

More Terror in M. Night Shyalaman's 'The Visit' International Trailer

24 April 2015 2:54 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Hot on the heels of the Us trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's return to the horror genre with The Visit, an international trailer has surfaced which gives us a completely different look at the film. This time we understand exactly why the film is a found footage story as granddaughter (Olivia DeJonge) seems to be filming some kind of home movie or class project as she and her brother (Ed Oxenbould) visit their grandparents. But during this weekend visit, they learn their grandparents have some spooky and terrifying secrets. The papermade bumpers for this trailer are a nice touch and it's just a better trailer all around. Here's the international trailer for M. Night Shyalaman's The Visit from Universal France: You can still watch the Us trailer for The Visit right here. The Visit is written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, The Village »

Watch: The Director of 'Paranormal Activity''s Long-Hidden 'Area 51' Movie Finally Has a Trailer

24 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Hot off the success of Paranormal Activity, but before that innovative horror movie would spawn its own franchise and countless knockoffs, writer-director Oren Peli made another movie that used found footage and a cast of unknowns to put a new spin on an old source of scares. It was called Area 51, and nobody has seen a thing from it since people first learned Peli was making it way back in 2009. So where has it been for six years? According to a few sources, Peli has been tinkering with it here and there, along with his Paranormal Activity producer Jason Blum. Normally such a long delay between filming and eventual release isn't a good sign, but we'll soon finally find out if Peli is the real deal or a one hit wonder, as Area 51 (his only other movie as a director) is about...

Things Go Bump In The Night In First Footage For M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit

24 April 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After experimenting in different genres to no tangible avail with The Last Airbender and After Earth, M. Night Shyamalan is returning to a genre he helped define with the release of upcoming horror film, The Visit, which today debuted its creepy first trailer.

Mixing found footage elements with more traditional camera work, the clip is an unusual melange of genre tropes, and despite our utmost attempts, we haven’t been able to identify any indications of a last-act, Shyamalan-styled twist. How and ever, the core premise of The Visit will center around a young brother and sister who are shipped out their grandparents for the weekend to spend some quality time with their ageing relatives. What could possibly go wrong?

A lot, as it turns out. Enforcing a non-negotiable, lights-out-by-9:30 policy, the grandparents attempt to push the children to a safe distance, but it isn’t long before the »

The director of Paranormal Activity tackles aliens in the Area 51 trailer

24 April 2015 9:03 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Oren Peli has not directed a film since the first Paranormal Activity in 2007. He has produced and written several projects in the last 8 years, but Area 51 is his first directorial effort since his breakout found footage hit. Using the same style, Area 51 tells another horror story but this time it is not ghosts that pose the supernatural threat. As the title implies, Area 51 will focus on a group of friens who mess with the wrong extraterrestrial. The film follows Reid, who has always »

Shyamalan Channels a Little 'Paranormal Activity' in Second Trailer for 'The Visit'

24 April 2015 7:49 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Yesterday brought us the first domestic trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's newest thriller The Visit and today we have a new international version with some additional footage. Now I only skimmed through this thing, but it looks to me like Shyamalan is attempting to capture some of that Paranormal Activity dread, most notably in the scene where we see one character on security camera just opening and closing a door (Why is she doing that!c!c!c!) and then a little Blair Witch (and every other found footage film since) use of flashlights as the only source of light. And he appears to be mixing that in with traditional narrative storytelling for what has been described as a micro budget feature. All that to say, I'm down. The film arrives on Sept. 11, have a look at this new trailer below. yt id="Ngd42wen_3M" width="640" readmore postid »

The Visit Trailer Will Make You Not Want to Call Your Grandparents Ever Again

24 April 2015 12:10 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

M. Night Shyamalan's latest film-slash-chance at redemption, The Visit, has two grandkids visiting their grandparents for a weeklong getaway in Pennsylvania. Fun, except, they get Hansel and Gretel–ed and Paranormal Activity–ed once the clock strikes 9:30 p.m. (I swear that's not a spoiler because that's all in this trailer, and, hey, on top of all that, there'll most likely be a twist to make things really crazy.) The movie comes out September 11, but you can get thoroughly creeped out right here, right now. When you're done, though, please face your fears, and call your grandparents and relatives to make sure they haven't been scratching any walls lately. »

‘The Visit’ First Trailer: M. Night Shyamalan’s Latest

23 April 2015 8:19 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

“Bedtime here is 9:30,” Grandpa announces before lights out. “It’s probably best you two shouldn’t come out of your room after that.” Ok, Nanna and Grandpa are, well, grandparents. But if that doesn’t seem a tad odd, wait until you hear what Nanna comes up with much later in the kitchen. What you get when you team writer-director M. Night Shyamalan with “the producer of Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Insidious, Sinister” is The Visit, which stars Deanna Dunagan and Peter… »

The Visit Trailer: This Might Be M. Night Shyamalan's Weirdest Movie Yet

23 April 2015 5:16 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

M. Night Shyamalan has had a weird career. He.s experienced incredible highs with movies like The Sixth Sense, but he.s fallen so far from grace that he wasn.t even mentioned in the promotion for his last movie, After Earth (his name only appeared on the poster really small and in the corner). A new trailer for his latest, the thriller The Visit, just dropped, and it is a strange looking thing to behold. Check it out for yourself. Shyamalan.s name is all over this trailer, so they.re definitely not shying away from his involvement, but watching this video, it feels more like the Blumhouse Productions movie that it is. The producers behind low-budget horror hits like Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and The Purge, their fingerprints are all visible all over the place, from the general aesthetic to the found footage (at least in large part, I »

"Would you mind getting inside the oven to clean it?" Time spent at your grandma's house should translate into warm moments that you'll cherish forever, but if the brother and sister in M.

Oren Peli's long-missing 'Area 51' finally gets a release date and trailer

23 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This might be a textbook case of "waiting too long." Then again, I may underestimate the public's appetite for films in which characters run around while dramatic things you can almost see happen. I may be wrong. It may well be that people are actually still excited about "The new film from the director of 'Paranormal Activity.'" I suspect they're not, and that the moment for Oren Peli to release a second film should have been about five years ago, but Paramount Insurge is going to put it to the test when they finally, after long last, release "Area 51" in May. If you aren't familiar with the title, aside from the cultural echoes associated with the name Area 51, that's not surprising. This was announced as the director's follow-up to "Paranormal Activity" six years ago, and getting information about it has been tough. I read an early treatment, »
