The Quiet Ones Are Quiet No More In Creepy New Trailer

17 April 2014 4:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What is it about kids in horror movies? Ever since those skin-crawlingly scary twins in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, nothing unnerves me more than children chanting eerie lines of dialogue. So, if this latest trailer for Hammer Horror’s upcoming demonic possession flick The Quiet Ones is any indication, I’ll be better off staying far away from the film when it opens next week.

There’s not much new information in this third official trailer for The Quiet Ones, but it’s clear that there is going to be some freaky stuff going down in the isolated country estate where college professor James Coupland (Jared Harris, who recently played another professor – the villainous James Moriarty – in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) retires with several of his most devoted students to study the case of a young girl named Jane (Olivia Cooke), who is exhibiting symptoms of demonic possession. »

7 April 2014 10:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting that Noomi Rapace is in negotiations to star in an upcoming spy thriller titled Unlocked. Directed by Mikael Håfström, the film was written by Peter O’Brien and showed up on the 2008 Black List. It follows a female CIA interrogator, the role Rapace would play, who’s tricked “into getting a terrorist to provide key information to the wrong side. This puts her at the center of a plot to launch a biological attack in London.”

After breaking out in the original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, Rapace started impressing audiences on this side of the pond with performances in films like Prometheus, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Passion. She also has several very exciting upcoming projects, like The Drop, Child 44 and of course, Prometheus 2, to look forward to.

Can These 7 Stars' Careers Be Saved by April Movies?

5 April 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

April is the cruelest month, and not just for T.S. Eliot.

At the multiplex, throughout April, we're in for a brutal, Darwinian survival test for several A-list stars of yesteryear -- from Kevin Costner to Nicole Kidman to Jude Law -- all of whom are currently on the comeback trail. Some of them may end the month on their way back to their former glory, and some will see their careers shredded even further.

Here are our best guesses as to who will thrive and who will starve.

Nicolas Cage

Last Big Hit: 2013 cartoon "The Croods" (starring voice role); 2009 drama "Knowing" (leading role)

Comeback Effort: Drama "Joe" (April 11)

Prospects: Cage is earning the kind of acclaim he hasn't seen in years for delivering a real, non-cartoonish performance in this rural drama as the title ex-con, who becomes the unlikely mentor to a teen (Tye Sheridan) in need of adult guidance. »

Another TV spot for Pompeii starring Kit Harington and Emily Browning

15 February 2014 11:37 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony Pictures has released a new TV spot for the upcoming historical disaster romance (that's a genre, right?) Pompeii, which sees Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) in a race against time to save his true love Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) from certain death at the hands of the deadly Mt. Vesuvius; check it out after the official synopsis....

It’s late summer in 79 A.D. and the city of Pompeii glitters at the foot of the mighty Mt. Vesuvius. Milo, the slave of a shipping tycoon, dreams of the day he will buy his freedom and marry his master’s daughter, Columba. What he doesn’t know is that Columba’s debt-ridden father has promised Columba to a despicable Roman Senator to pay off an overdue loan.

Milo does know that his friend, the Gladiator Nigellus, is being forced to compete the next day in a seemingly unwinnable battle in the Coliseum. »

Hammer Horror’s ‘The Quiet Ones’ Gets a New Trailer

4 February 2014 2:21 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The left-over nightmares from The Conjuring are finally starting to fade and there are still many months to go before Paranormal Activity 5 hits theaters, but luckily there’s some more supernatural horror occupying the interim in the form of The Quiet Ones, a poltergeist-themed chiller starring Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) that arrives on the big screen this spring.

As shown in the creepy teaser trailer that was released around Halloween last year, The Quiet Ones is the “true story” (ahem) of a university professor (Harris) who attempted to generate the phenomenon of poltergeist activity and capture it on film with the aid of a group of students. Claflin plays one of his wide-eyed protégés, while Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel) plays the unfortunate ...
