Rachel Weisz on the Importance of Secrets, Her Dream Job, and ‘My Cousin Rachel’

Characters like the one that gives its title to My Cousin Rachel are usually played with broad strokes, either to elicit extreme sympathy, or total disdain, and yet what Rachel Weisz does in Roger Michell’s adaptation of the Daphne du Maurier novel is unlike either of those, it’s a performance so layered that it would unfair to say it lies even in between. We are supposed to mistrust Rachel from the moment we first hear her name, after all she is the stranger who has seduced Philip’s (Sam Claflin) saintly cousin, made him renounce his bachelorhood, and abandon his beloved England. Not only that, but according to some suspicions, she might have even been behind his untimely death, meaning there is nothing left for Philip to do but seek revenge.

And yet upon meeting Rachel, Philip discovers something quite unexpected, rather than a severe gorgon, he finds her to be quite sensitive,

Is Wonder Woman Director Patty Jenkins Planning A Horror Project?

Subscribers to Shudder – the streaming service of AMC Networks that focuses on thrillers, suspense and horror titles – could be in for a treat at some point in the near future, as Patty Jenkins is listed as being attached to an upcoming original Shudder project. The service is new to the realm of original programming, and with its first commissioned piece – the horror documentary Primal Screen – about to premiere on the channel, more details about upcoming original programming for Shudder have been released.

Among them is Riprore, which “focuses on the heart of gangland Los Angeles, where a gruesome discovery sparks a frenetic homicide investigation, but underneath the surface lurks a darkness that leads to the end of days.” This seemingly apocalyptic horror is written by Sam Sheridan, who previously wrote A Fighter’s Heart and The Disaster Diaries.

The details do not specify that Jenkins is confirmed to direct – merely

‘Wonder Woman’ Makes History: How Patty Jenkins Lost the Chance to Direct One Big Superhero Movie and Landed a Better One
Patty Jenkins was always going to make history. Back in 2011, the “Monster” director was picked to helm Marvel’s first “Thor” sequel, making her not only the first female filmmaker to direct one of the burgeoning Marvel Cinematic Universe’s films, but the first to direct any studio-backed big-budget superhero franchise film. (Lexi Alexander broke similar ground when she directed “Punisher: War Zone” in 2008, though that film is not part of a wider franchise and was produced by Lionsgate.) After just two months on the project, Jenkins and Marvel parted ways – the old “creative differences” line was tossed around by both sides – and the job eventually went to Alan Taylor.

Jenkins moved on, turning her attention to prestige TV like “The Killing” and “Betrayal,” but the superhero world kept calling. Six years later, Jenkins finally got her superhero property, thanks to the DC Extended Universe and their much-anticipated (and so far extremely well-reviewed) “Wonder Woman.

Conviction Season 1 Review

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

Important note: I’m a complete fanatic for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and everything even remotely related to it. That’s why I was simultaneously distraught when ABC canceled my favorite McU cable network show, Marvel’s Agent Carter, and elated when it kept the divine Hayley Atwell around for one of its new crime shows Conviction, which is a notch above Betrayal and a step below Notorious as far as generically meaningless titles go. Alas, it’s a near tragedy to discover that Atwell’s role in the series, which she at least prevents from being a complete waste of time with one or two moments of charm, could essentially be played by anyone and elicit the same result.

Unlike the coterie of incarcerated innocents at the center of the show, Conviction does no one participating one iota of good: everyone is

Mike Flanagan’s Ouija: Origin Of Evil Trailer Looks Way Better than Its Predecessor

Let’s face it, Ouija was pretty much worthless. It was forgettable and a wasted opportunity. The end product was definitely the result of too many hands in the pot. However, Universal knows that acquiring the license of using the “Ouija” name is definitely something that should be capitalized upon. It also doesn’t hurt that the first film did well at the box office, probably based off the name. Luckily for horror fans, they got a great director in Mike Flanagan to take a crack at the franchise and judging from the trailer, this should have been the original film.

Ouija: Origin of Evil arrives in theaters October 21st from Universal Pictures. Henry Thomas (Betrayal), Annalise Basso (Oculus), Elizabeth Reaser (“True Detective”), Lulu Wilson (Deliver Us from Evil), Parker Mack (MTV’s “Faking It”), Sam Anderson, Kate Siegel (Demon Legacy), and Doug Jones (Hellboy, “Fear Itself”) star.
