Exclusive New Poster For Corin Hardy's The Hallow

9 December 2014 3:35 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Freshly recruited to helm The Crow remake, thanks in part to references provided by one Edgar Wright, British director Corin Hardy will be showing off his filmmaking bona fides first hand next year when his debut horror The Hallow hits our screens. The monster movie has a first-look poster we’re delighted to be sharing with you right here. Click below for a closer peek. Just maybe not too close… With its director citing classic horrors like The Evil Dead, Alien and The Thing as boyhood inspirations, The Hallow will mingle the real-world and the fantastical in a way that should thrill fans of early Guillermo Del Toro. It tells the tale of a conservationist (The Awakening’s Joseph Mawle), his wife (Drag Me To Hell’s Bojana Novakovic) and their wee’un who move into the Irish countryside where they soon unwittingly disturb the local wildlife. And by ‘wildlife »

News

Here's a spot of exciting news. Bernard Cornwell's gripping The Last Kingdom novel is coming to BBC Two in the form of a shiny eight-part TV series.

Part of the Saxon Stories saga, The Last Kingdom is an historical drama starting in the year 872 in a post-Viking invasion pre-England.

22 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Tagline: "Nature has a dark side." Corin Hardy will make his directorial debut with the horror title The Woods. This title is in production and filming will take place somewhere in the Green Isles (Ireland). Hardy's film will be a creature feature, in which a conservationist is confronted by hostile townsfolk. Joseph Mawle (The Awakening) and Bojana Novakovic (Devil) will star. And now, an early movie poster is available for the film. The film's story focuses on Adam. Adam sets off into the local Irish woods, on a surveying job; he takes his family along with him. The locals warn Adam of creatures, stalking the night. But, this ancient folklore does not deter Adam, nor his work. And soon, he is confronted by vicious beings, which emerge from the darkest patches of forest. Adam's surveying days might be coming to an end, forever. The Woods is being developed by both Occupant Entertainment and Fantastic Films. »
