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.

Telluride Film Review: ‘The Imitation Game’

30 August 2014 6:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nothing is too heavily encrypted in “The Imitation Game,”, rendered in such unerringly tasteful, “Masterpiece Theatre”-ish fashion that every one of Turing’s professional triumphs and personal tragedies arrives right on schedule and with nary a hair out of place. More than once during the accomplished (but not particularly distinctive) English-language debut for Norwegian director Morten Tyldum (“Headhunters”), you can catch the ghost of the late Richard Attenborough nodding approvingly over the decorous proceedings. And yet so innately compelling is Turing’s story — to say nothing of Benedict Cumberbatch’s masterful performance — it’s hard not to get caught up in this well-told tale and its skillful manipulations. Likely to prove more popular with general audiences than highbrow critics, this unapologetically old-fashioned prestige picture (the first of the season’s dueling studies of brilliant but tragic English academics, to be followed soon by “The Theory of Everything”) looks and »

Hammer Films and Entertainment One have debuted the first teaser trailer for The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, director Tom Harper’s follow-up to the Daniel Radcliffe-headlined 2012 horror smash The Woman in Black.

Here’s the official synopsis, followed by the trailer below…

As bombs rain down on London during the Blitz of World War II, a group of school children are evacuated with Eve, their young and beautiful schoolteacher, to the safety of the English countryside.

She’s Back… First Trailer for Hammer’s The Woman in Black: Angel of Death

21 August 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

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.

Sigourney Weaver to Play Your Disappointed Grandma in ‘A Monster Calls’

20 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If you’re going to have someone on your side to protect you from bad guys and guide you through life’s trials and tribulations, there is probably nobody better than Sigourney Weaver to get the job done. But although she’s one of the most badass action stars in film history, she’s leaving the niceties to Liam Neeson this time around. Weaver has signed on to the cast of the children’s fantasy flick A Monster Calls, an adaptation of the brilliant 2011 novel from Patrick Ness that will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) and feature Neeson as the title creature. The actress is taking on something a little more frosty in the film, playing grandmother to 13-year-old protagonist Conor, whose life is especially complicated with a double whammy of brutal bullying from classmates at school and his mother’s (Felicity Jones) prognosis of terminal cancer.

Sigourney Weaver Joins Liam Neeson in A Monster Calls

20 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sigourney Weaver has joined Liam Neeson and Felicity Jones in a fantasy film called A Monster Calls, which is based on Patrick Ness’ award-winning children's novel. 

The film is being directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible), and the story follows "a young boy who attempts to deal with bullying at the hands of his classmates, and his mother's terminal illness, by escaping into a fantastical world through the guidance of a tree monster."

Weaver will play the boy’s grandmother, Jones is playing the boys mother, and Neeson is playing the monster. I really like the concept of the story, and the cast they've brought together to bring it to life so far is fantastic. The movie is set to be released in October 2016.

Toby Kebbell Boards A Monster Calls

20 August 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You may not know Toby Kebbell, but the actor’s star has been rising steadily over the past ten years. This past summer, he took on the mo-cap role of antagonist Koba in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – but prior to that, the British thesp had earned raves for his parts in Dead Man’s Shoes, Control and RocknRolla. And rest assured, if you currently can’t picture his face, just wait. He’ll play Doctor Doom in Josh Trank’s anticipated Fantastic Four reboot, and now we’ve learned that Kebbell is also climbing on board the dark fantasy A Monster Calls.

Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) is directing the adaptation of Patrick Ness’ award-winning children’s book, which was in turn based on an original idea by the late Siobhan Dowd. Bayona, whose past credits also include bone-chilling ghost story The Orphanage, has been putting together »

J.A. Bayona's (The Impossible) A Monster Calls is beginning to take shape with one heck of a cast.

Sigourney Weaver Joins A Monster Calls

18 August 2014 12:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The high-profile dark fantasy A Monster Calls, from The Impossible director J.A. Bayona, just added Sigourney Weaver to its cast. The Aliens actress joins the already-attached Liam Neeson and Felicity Jones in the adaptation of Patrick Ness’ award-winning children’s fantasy novel (which in turn was based on an idea from the late Siobhan Dowd).

The film will focus on a young boy (still uncast) who attempts to deal with bullying at school and his mother’s (Jones) cancer diagnosis by retreating into a fantasy world full of dark and dangerous creatures. When the most fearsome of the creatures (voiced by Neeson) follows the boy back into the real world, the two begin an exchange of stories, with potentially devastating consequences.

Weaver will take on the role of the boy’s grandmother, with whom he is to live once his mother succumbs to the cancer. The character is described as a “no-nonsense” woman. »

13 year old Jack Hollington from Liverpool is set to star in the title role of the new BBC adaptation of LP Hartley's classic novel The Go-Between.

Guillermo del Toro Talks Animated Ode to Mexico 'Book of Life' (New Trailer)

7 August 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Some weeks ago, Fox invited some scribes over to the Little Theatre to see preview footage of Guillermo del Toro-produced 3D animated/action adventure comedy/romance "The Book of Life," which comes out October 17, just before Halloween. Now they've released the trailer, below. Smartly, they're backing workaholic Del Toro's latest production, which will play like gangbusters to the under-served Hispanic audience, the fastest-growing moviegoer demo--as well as everyone else. Del Toro likes to take on talented young filmmakers like Spanish filmmaker Juan Antonio Bayona, who followed up smart-house horror thriller "The Orphanage" with English-language tsunami drama "The Impossible" and TV's horrific "Penny Dreadful" and is now prepping "World War Z 2." This time the young filmmaker is Mexico City-born Cal Arts grad Jorge Gutierrez, who 4 1/2 years ago pitched Del Toro his vision of a magical Mexican Orpheus and Eurydice folk myth using »
