First Official Aquaman Movie Photo Reveals Jason Momoa's New Look

First Official Aquaman Movie Photo Reveals Jason Momoa's New Look
Aquaman has already set itself apart from Justice League with a single photo. Jason Momoa is set to reprise his role as DC's most famous Atlantean in an Aquaman solo movie next year, which is directed by James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7). Now, the first official photo of Momoa as Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman, from the movie has arrived online.

In the photo, Aquaman looks radically different from the https://movieweb.com/aquaman-movie-story-details-shark-riding-jason-momoa/cheesy version of the character that many are familiar with from the early comics and the Super Friends animated show. This isn't your daddy's Aquaman. This is an angry, totally ripped and kind of awesome Aquaman. Here's what director James Wan had to say about his take and approach to the Aquaman movie, which is set to arrive in theaters on December 21, 2018.

"It's going to look very different, it will feel very different, aesthetically, tonally, story-wise,

Hayes Brothers, Joel Silver Teaming on Horror Film (Exclusive)

Hayes Brothers, Joel Silver Teaming on Horror Film (Exclusive)
The Hayes brothers, the sibling duo behind “The Conjuring,” are teaming up with producer Joel Silver on an original horror movie.

Details are being kept under wraps, but the film is being set at Sony, where Columbia Pictures executive vice president of creative production Palak Patel will oversee the development. The brothers, Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes, have a busy dance card. They’ve been contracted to write the third installment of the “Journey to the Center of the Earth” series, and they’ve established themselves as among the preeminent creative forces in the horror genre. In addition to “The Conjuring,” the Hayes brothers have written “The Crucifixion,” “The Reaping,” and “House of Wax.”

Silver is best known as the producer of “Die Hard,” “Sherlock Holmes,” and “The Matrix.” He’s working with Sony on a remake of “Superfly,” the ’70s crime classic. Patel is involved in bringing that project to the screen as well. Before joining

First-look image from the Aquaman solo movie, James Wan and Jason Momoa say film is a “totally different beast”

First introduced in a quick cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before giving a prominent role in Justice League, Jason Momoa will soon be starring in his own Aquaman film, directed by The Conjuring’s James Wan. The film doesn’t come out until December 21st, 2018, but Entertainment Weekly has released the first official photo from the film. Check it out here…

Wan and Momoa also spoke with EW about how different Aquaman, both as a character and the film itself, will be compared to Justice League. Much like Clark Kent and Diana Prince, Arthur Curry is a man of two worlds; his father was a regular human, but his mother was the queen of Atlantis, making him the rightful heir to the throne.

Justice League was only a weekend in Arthur Curry’s life,” Momoa said. “This is a totally different beast. In Aquaman, you see when

DVD Review – Annabelle: Creation (2017)

Annabelle: Creation, 2017.

Directed by David F. Sandberg.

Starring Anthony Lapaglia, Samara Lee, Miranda Otto, Stephanie Sigman, Mark Bramhall, Brad Greenquist, and Lulu Wilson.

Synopsis:

Yet another prequel from The Conjuring universe detailing how the creepy Annabelle doll came to be.

Having now established that there is a ‘universe’ based around James Wan’s 2013 hit The Conjuring by making sequels and spinoffs about seemingly secondary characters and events mentioned in passing we end up here with Annabelle: Creation, not only the second prequel to The Conjuring but also the second prequel based around the creepy image of the Annabelle doll briefly seen in Wan’s original movie. Yes, it does seem that Warner Bros. are forcing this evil doll concept down our throats a bit but in their defence they do have a significantly creepier looking killer doll than Chucky and they aren’t about to let that particular cash cow

Film Review: ‘Daisy Winters’

Film Review: ‘Daisy Winters’
Four months after writer-director Beth Lamure wrapped production on her first movie, “Daisy Winters,” she took her own life. Her spirit is palpable in the film she’d just finished editing, a small, but clearly heartfelt story about an 11-year-old named Daisy (Sterling Jerins) who is obsessed with death — and with good reason. Her single mother Sandy (Brooke Shields) has been battling cancer for five years, and if mom loses the fight, orphaned Daisy will be forced to live with Aunt Margaret (Carrie Preston), a kid-spanking snob eager to instill discipline in the morbid child. What happens next is at once improbable and emotionally sincere, a Hallmark card with warped edges, and a strong central performance by Jerins (“Paterson,” “The Conjuring”), who’s a young actress to watch.

Five minutes into the film, it’s clear that Daisy is an unusually brutal girl. She’s at the dinner table when her mother’s best friend Suzy (Kathy

James Wan says Aquaman’s Atlantis scenes will be different from Justice League

For a lot of people Justice League has seemingly undone the good work of the Dceu’s trail blazing Amazonian, Wonder Woman. Aside from the lacklustre box-office returns, fans have been speculating about how it will shape the future of this troubled cinematic universe, with The Hollywood Reporter writing a think piece on the job that awaits James Wan’s in-the-can Jason Momoa blockbuster, Aquaman, which is set for release on Dec 21, 2018.

Most of the piece focuses on potential problems for the origin story, and what Amber Heard’s brief appearance as Mera means in terms of the source material, but what prompted the film’s director to take to Twitter was the sign off, which stated that “all James Wan and the rest of the Aqua-team needs to work out is how to have all the characters speak while underwater. There can’t be that many air bubbles under the sea after all.

The Writer Behind It Is Bringing Are You Afraid of the Dark? Back From the Dead

If you're still freaking out about how incredible the remake of Stephen King's It is (or if you're still freaked out by it, period), we have some exciting news: It screenwriter Gary Dauberman is tackling a script for an Are You Afraid of the Dark? movie. Yes, really. The creepy '90s anthology series not only launched countless careers for stars like Ryan Gosling and Neve Campbell, but also boasts a passionate fan base that may or may not be still recovering from the Nickelodeon show's more terrifying episodes. Ayaotd?, which ran from 1992 to 1996 and was later rebooted for one season in 1999, followed a group of kids who called themselves the Midnight Society and would tell scary stories and urban legends with an eerie modern twist. Given Hollywood's newfound success with recent horror films like It, Happy Death Day, and The Conjuring franchise, it makes total sense that they'd try introducing Ayaotd?

Paranormal Activity director Oren Peli on why he turned down the chance to helm The Conjuring

Director Oren Peli recently revealed that James Wan wasn’t the first choice to direct 2013’s The Conjuring. Talking on the Post Mortem podcast, the Paranormal Activity director revealed that he was offered to direct The Conjuring, and also explains why he decided to decline:

“I kind of wanted to just kind of cash out and be done [after Paranormal Activity]. I got sucked into [producing] the Paranormal Activity sequels, then I had lunch with Steven Spielberg and he said, ‘Let’s do a TV show together.’ And we did The River. I kind of kept having different opportunities to get me sucked back in. And then I thought, ‘Yeah, I could find something to direct.’ I got sent a lot of scripts. There was one I really loved called Eliza Graves. It ended up being a whole big legal mess and the project fell through.”

The Conjuring franchise absolutely ended up with the right director,

The Aquaman Solo Movie Will Feature Characters Riding Sharks; Jason Momoa Cites Star Wars As A Reference

While there are only three months separating Thor: Ragnarok and Marvel’s Black Panther spinoff, not to mention the relatively minuscule five-month gap between The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story, DC fans are bracing for the prolonged lull between Justice League and Aquaman.

The latter tentpole was once scheduled for July 27th, 2018, before being shoved back to December of the same year. As things stand, that’s a full 13 months after Justice League‘s theatrical release, but at least based on Jason Momoa’s recent comments, Aquaman may well be worth the wait.

ComicBook.com recently caught up with DC’s King of the Seven, who championed his standalone pic to be a “big road movie,” one that features characters riding sharks. Take our money, Warner Bros., take it all.

Surpassing Justice League, this moment in time is his call to become king. The only thing that

How Deafness Is Adding Extra Scares to John Leonetti's Horror Movie 'The Silence'

How Deafness Is Adding Extra Scares to John Leonetti's Horror Movie 'The Silence'
John Leonetti knows horror. The veteran filmmaker, 61, cut his teeth as a focus puller on the original Poltergeist. As cinematographer on James Wan’s Insidious and The Conjuring, he contributed to two of the franchises that launched the current horror boom. And he scored his own bona fide horror hit with 2014’s Annabelle, which grossed $256 million worldwide.

He spoke to The Hollywood Reporter from Toronto, where he’s shooting The Silence, a high-concept chiller about a world beset by monsters in which a deaf girl (Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka) provides the only hope of survival. Mister Smith Entertainment is handling...

Zack Snyder Brings Us Closer To Arthur Curry With Another Round Of Bts Justice League Pics

When it comes to the vast and immensely rich world of DC comics, Arthur Curry needs no introduction.

Otherwise known as the King of the Seven (or Orin Atlan-son), Aquaman is practically in a league of his own when it comes to the comic book industry, so it’s only fitting that Jason Momoa’s Atlantean is primed for a huge – huge! – 14 months. With Justice League imminent, Arthur Curry will soon be drafted into the world’s greatest superteam in order to fend off an alien invasion, while there’s also James Wan’s solo movie to look forward to in 2018.

As it’s coming from the filmmaker who brought us The Conjuring, Saw, and the opening chapter of Insidious, Aquaman is said to be steeped in Hollywood’s horror genre, which, on paper, makes for a fascinating set-up to Curry’s standalone adventure.

But with Justice League right around the corner,

Blu-Ray Release Of Annabelle: Creation Heralds First Footage From The Nun

Four films deep, The Conjuring universe is now widely considered to be a cornerstone of Hollywood’s horror scene. Not bad for a film franchise that flickered into life only four years ago.

In that time, James Wan (Aquaman) has delivered The Conjuring and its sequel, The Enfield Poltergeist, while director John R. Leonetti broke course to focus on the nightmarish little doll known as Annabelle. A worldwide haul in excess of $256 million was enough to warrant a sequel (read: Annabelle: Creation), which is available via Blu-ray and DVD as of yesterday, October 24th.

Not only was it another feather in New Line’s cap – Creation topped its predecessor’s haul by almost $50 million at the global box office – but David Sandberg’s chilling follow-up helped expand The Conjuring universe into uncharted territory. Next up? The Nun, and Bloody Disgusting has today uncovered the first footage from Corin Hardy’s 2018 spinoff.

The Commuter Trailer #2 Has Liam Neeson Back in Action

The Commuter Trailer #2 Has Liam Neeson Back in Action
Just over a month after the first trailer arrived, Lionsgate has released a second trailer and a new poster for The Commuter, featuring Liam Neeson in what was originally thought to be one of his final action roles, since the actor hinted last month he's retiring from action movies. He later clarified in another interview that he isn't retiring from action movies, adding that he'll keep, "doing action movies until they bury me in the ground." While it at one point seemed that The Commuter was the end of the Liam Neeson action movie era, fans will still have many more Liam Neeson action movies to look forward to.

In this action-packed thriller, Liam Neeson plays an insurance salesman, Michael, on his daily commute home, which quickly becomes anything but routine. After being contacted by a mysterious stranger, Michael is forced to uncover the identity of a hidden passenger on

Atlantean Royalty Emerges From The Deep In New Aquaman Set Photos

Justice League continues to gobble up headlines left, right, and center ahead of its long-awaited release date, but once the Caped Crusader has rallied the League and Steppenwolf has fallen, the Powers That Be will begin directing our attention toward Aquaman.

Pegged to arrive late next year, James Wan’s starry standalone pic is said to be steeped in horror, which isn’t all that surprising for a director that cut his teeth on Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring franchise – the latter of which has since become a full-blown film universe at New Line.

If nothing else, Wan’s horror heritage is a sure-fire sign that Warner Bros. is about to deliver something truly different in 2018, given the Dceu has so far been defined by po-faced blockbusters, brooding heroes and, thanks to Wonder Woman, an inspired origin story. Let’s just hope Justice League is able to build on that momentum in four weeks’ time.

Annabelle: Creation Soars Past $300 Million Worldwide

The Conjuring universe continues to go from strength to strength.

With New Line and Warner’s creepy franchise beginning to take hold, Deadline brings word that its latest instalment, a nerve-shredding prequel by the name of Annabelle: Creation, has now surpassed $300 million at the worldwide box office (off a budget of $15 million, no less).

To be exact, it’s now sitting pretty at $301.5 million, this coming shortly after it became the highest grossing horror film of 2017 – well, until It came along, that is. Not only that, but to put things into perspective, the first movie earned $256.8 million back when it released in 2014 and now, the Conjuring franchise has reached $1.2 billion globally. Not bad, eh?

Directed by David Sandberg of Lights Out fame, Creation launched as a prequel in August and is still playing in select theaters across the States. That means New Line’s spinoff will likely collect a bit
