Hammer Horror has been back for a few years now and their first major success since their revival was 2012’s The Woman in Black. Now the studio has released the first teaser trailer for the sequel The Woman in Black: Angel of Death. The teaser gives un nothing to go off on in its short runtime. Besides some threatening text and a little jump scare, there are no hints toward story and characters. The film is directed by British TV director Tom Harper and stars Helen McCrory (The Queen, The Special Relationship), Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, Railway Man), and Adrian Rawlins (the Harry Potter series) and will be released this February.

Hammer is looking to take the franchise route with The Woman in Black starting with this one which is set 40 years after the events of the original film. "If your second's successful, then your third, then you've got a franchise," said Hammer CEO Simon Oakes in a previous interview. "I just don't believe in the notion that you can press a button and create a franchise, but, I mean, I'm definitely planning 3 and 4…"
The Woman in Black: Angel of Death stars Phoebe Fox in her first leading role in a feature film. Fox is joined by Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, Great Expectations, The Railway Man), the award-winning Helen McCrory (Skyfall, Hugo, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows), and »

Hammer has released a fantastically eerie trailer for their upcoming horror sequel The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death. The movie tells a different story with a new cast that includes Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Helen McCrory (Skyfall), and Phoebe Fox (Switch). Daniel Radcliffe's character is not a part of this story, but the creepy old house is! I really liked the first movie, and I'm sure the sequel will be just as good. Here's a description of the story:
England, 1941. With London in the midst of the blitz, two teachers evacuate a group of schoolchildren to the abandoned Eel Marsh House. Seeking safety from the bombs in the remote coastal location, the group instead find themselves facing an evil far more frightening when their arrival awakens the Woman in Black.
The film will be released in UK on February 13th, 2015, but doesn't have distribution in the United States yet. »

Two years ago, the huge success of the Daniel Radcliffe-led horror The Woman in Black confirmed Hammer’s comeback. Next year, the production company is coming back with the sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, with relative newcomer Phoebe Fox taking the lead alongside Jeremy Irvine (War Horse).
The first film took more than $120m. at the global box office, an impressive feat for any film, and even more so for a film made outside of the Us. And now we’ve got our first taste of the horrors in store for us next year, with the first teaser trailer landing online.

Daniel Radcliffe starrer The Woman in Black rescued the long-dormant Hammer Film Productions with a stellar $20.9 million opening weekend back in 2012, which more than earned the period chiller a sequel. Now, whether or not fans actually wanted The Woman in Black: Angel of Death is up for discussion, but the original movie’s key role in kickstarting a new era of Hammer Horror can’t be overstated, so it’s only to be expected that the studio would try to turn the flick into a franchise.
The first trailer for the follow-up, which hits next February, doesn’t do much more than announce the sequel’s existence, which is a bit disappointing but should have been expected considering how far away the title is. We do know quite a bit about what Angel of Death will focus on, however. Set during World War II, the sequel replaces Radcliffe with Helen McCrory »

In case you forgot, there's a sequel coming to the 2012 gothic horror flick The Woman in Black, the first film that saw Daniel Radcliffe venture outside of the Harry Potter franchise. However, the British star isn't returning for The Woman in Black: Angel of Death. Instead, it's Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Helen McCrory (Skyfall) and Phoebe Fox (Switch) starring in the horror sequel with a new tale of terror in the old, abandoned Eel Marsh House. Now we have a teaser trailer from across the pond, and it doesn't show us much, and that's not just because the YouTube version of this video is far too dark to see anything. Watch!

Back in 2012, The Woman in Black starring Daniel Radcliffe pulled in more than $127 million worldwide, a solid sum for the low budget thriller. Now, the creepy spirit that haunts the Eel Marsh House is back in The Woman in Black: Angel of Death and today the first trailer for the thriller has arrived. Angel of Death takes us back to England, 1941, and with London in the midst of the blitz, two teachers evacuate a group of schoolchildren to the abandoned Eel Marsh House. Seeking safety from the bombs in the remote coastal location, the group instead find themselves facing an evil far more frightening when their arrival awakens the Woman in Black. Tom Harper (The Swarm) and Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Helen McCrory (Skyfall) and Phoebe Fox (Switch) star.

Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has been cast as Frankenstein author Mary Shelly in a film project called Mary Shelley's Monster. The story "tracks the young writer as she writes her seminal novel and is drawn into a Faustian bargain with her own 'monster' of an alter ego, who offers literary fame at a desperate personal cost." Shelley first published her classic novel Frankenstein anonymously at the age of 21.
The film's producer Rose Ganguzza envisions Shelley's life as "the story of the most extraordinary 19th century teenage heroine told in a visceral, sexy, contemporary way. Our film is not a period drama. It is a story of youth that transcends time, a gothic romance, a love triangle that involves a dark passenger and we are tremendously excited to have such an exciting cast onboard this wonderful project."

(Cbr) As Sansa Stark on "Game of Thrones," Sophie Turner has seen her fair share of monstrosities. Now, she’s about to face an entirely different kind of monster. Turner is at the heart of "Mary Shelley’s Monster," director Coky Giedroyc’s new movie focusing on the legendary author’s creation of “Frankenstein.” Turner will play the titular Shelley, with "American Horror Story" veteran Taissa Farmiga on board as her stepsister Claire Clairmont. "War Horse" actor Jeremy Irvine will play Mary’s husband, Percy Shelley. “Our film is not a period drama,” producer Rose Ganguzza tells Deadline. “It is a story of youth that transcends time, a gothic romance, a love triangle that involves a dark passenger and we are tremendously excited to have such an exciting cast onboard this wonderful project.” Production begins later this year in the United Kingdom and Malta. »

For anyone who tries to pull that whole “fake geek girl” load of crap, please point them in the direction of Mary Shelley. It’s really hard to argue that girls don’t have a place in horror or alternative culture when the person who created Frankenstein and his monster was a teenage girl. Now the story of the prolific author in her adolescence, the time when she wrote her masterpiece, will be chronicled in Mary Shelley’s Monster, with Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner stepping into her shoes. The twist here is that the titular monster is not the one created by a mad scientist in a lab out of thrifted body parts; it’s a personal demon that she struggles with, sacrificing pieces of herself to get literary fame and that perfect final draft. Shelley was a badass to be reckoned with, anonymously publishing “Frankenstein” at the age of 21 when she married poet Percy Bysshe Shelley (to »

Many of Game of Thrones’ cast members are finding success away from the popular HBO series, and Sophie Turner (who plays Sansa Stark) is set to star as Frankenstein author Mary Shelley in Mary Shelley’s Monster.
Mary Shelley’s Monster is described by producer Rose Ganguzza as, “the story of the most extraordinary 19th century teenage heroine told in a visceral, sexy, contemporary way.” She added, “Our film is not a period drama. It is a story of youth that transcends time, a gothic romance, a love triangle that involves a dark passenger and we are tremendously excited to have such an exciting cast onboard this wonderful project.”

The film sees Shelley entered into a Faustian pact with her monstrous alter ego, winning literary acclaim at a high cost.
Turner plays Sansa Stark in HBO's hit Game of Thrones series.
There are three upcoming projects that are busy casting up. Here’s who they got: Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner has joined the cast of Mary Shelley’s Monster. Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston just took a role in the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, just signed on to join the Millennium Films thriller, Criminal. Hit the jump for more on all three casting announcements. After three years of solely being associated with Game of Thrones, Turner is finally making moves to establish a career for herself outside of Westeros. Mary Shelley’s Monster isn’t her first – she’s actually got two other films in post-production right now, Alone with Ray Liotta and Barely Lethal with Hailee Steinfeld and Jessica Alba – but this could be a big one for her, one that »

A couple of weeks back it was announced that Elle Fanning (Maleficent) will play Mary Shelley in A Storm in the Clouds, and now it has been revealed that Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is also set to appear as the Frankenstein author in a new film entitled Mary Shelley’s Monster.
According to Deadline, the film “tracks the young writer as she writes her seminal novel and is drawn into a Faustian bargain with her own “monster” of an alter ego, who offers literary fame at a desperate personal cost”, with producer Rose Ganguzza stating that it will “tell the story of the most extraordinary 19th century teenage heroine told in a visceral, sexy, contemporary way.”

Joining the premium-tv ranks requires a certain commitment to doing what others aren’t. Hence, Netflix gets virtually no points for “BoJack Horseman,” a raunchy animated series that not-so-boldly goes where seemingly everyone — Fox, Comedy Central, Adult Swim — has gone before. Will Arnett and Aaron Paul lend their voices to the enterprise (as well as helping pad the roster of exec producers), but it’s such a stale premise that even when the series musters the occasional smirk, it feels deserving of a trip to the glue factory. Does “BoJack’s” Hollywood satire merit saddling up to watch? To quote the protagonist, “Neigh.”
Part of the series’ problem right out the starting gate is that Arnett’s boorish, self-absorbed former sitcom star feels like little more than an equine version of a character he’s played a dozen times, most effectively in “Arrested Development.” BoJack headlined a “Full House”-like »

If the dramatisation of a famous young English novelist floats your boat then the upcoming Coky Giedroyc ('The Killing') directed project 'Mary Shelley's Monster' will be high on your list of 'movies to watch' in 2015. 'Game of Thrones' stunner Sophie Turner (below) has been cast in the title role in the project which follows the early life of the young writer during the time of her penning her seminal piece of work 'Frankenstein'. With Turner on board it does seem like the perfect piece of casting. 'American Horror Story's Taissa Farmiga (below) will also star as Mary's stepsister Claire Clairmont whilst 'War Horse' actor Jeremy Irvine will play Percy Shelley. »
As one of the more exciting films currently in development, Mary Shelley’s Monster is slowly coming to life. Telling the story of the influential young author, the film will track her progress as she pens the legendary tale that secured her place in the annals of literary history, while negotiating that eventual fame at a heavy personal cost.
Mary – the wife of poet Percy Shelley – published the gothic story anonymously at the age of 21 in 1818, but this cinematic exploration of that period of her life is not intended to be a dry biography. On the contrary, it will take an altogether different approach, as producer Rose Ganguzza (Kill Your Darlings) explained:
“[It is] the story of the most extraordinary 19th century teenage heroine told in a visceral, sexy, contemporary way. Our film is not a period drama. It is a story of youth that transcends time, a gothic romance, a love »

• It looks like Mike Epps may finally get the chance to play legendary stand-up comedian Richard Pryor after all. The comic has emerged as the front-runner to play the part in a biopic for The Weinstein Company directed by Lee Daniels (The Butler). Epps was previously signed on to play Pryor back in 2005 and met with the late comedian while he was still alive to prepare for the role, but that project fell through. Epps reportedly beat out actors Michael B. Jordan, Nick Cannon, and Marlon Wayans after Wayans had also been previously attached to another Pryor film, this one »
