The Terrifying Reason You Recognized This Actress in the Sharp Objects Trailer

The Terrifying Reason You Recognized This Actress in the Sharp Objects Trailer
If you're on the verge of canceling your Summer plans just to focus on dissecting Sharp Objects, which premieres July 8, you're not alone. Based on the eponymous novel by Gillian Flynn, the HBO miniseries brings in notable names like Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson, who play Camille Preaker and Adora Crellin, respectively. That's all well and good, but there's one more cast member you should be excited about: Sophia Lillis. She plays a young Camille on the show but is best known for her role as Beverly Marsh in the 2017 remake of It.

Even though she was fantastic in the movie, when Lillis first auditioned for Beverly's character, the producers wanted her to be girlier. Fortunately, director Andy Muschietti - who had a different idea in mind - put his foot down and worked with Lillis on crafting a character who was more rebellious and a tomboy. Beverly's inherent strength

Justice League concept artist says Zack Snyder did finish his cut of the movie

Warner Bros. and DC Films may be doing everything they can to move forward from Justice League after the DC blockbuster’s disappointing box office performance last year, but it seems there still remains a passionate section of the fanbase hoping that the studio will release a ‘Snyder Cut’ of the superhero team-up.

While it seems very unlikely that we’ll ever get to see Zack Snyder’s original vision for the movie, Justice League concept artist – and frequent DC animation director – Jay Oliva has revealed that Snyder did in fact deliver a completed version of the film before his departure.

“Zack isn’t the kind of director who creates the film in the edit bay,” said Oliva.” It’s all planned out meticulously from beginning to end. That’s how Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were done. All of the scenes Zack envisioned was

Batman v Superman cinematographer says severe criticism of the film “hurts”

The cinematographer on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has addressed the criticism the film received upon release.

While Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman performed well enough at the box office, the film certainly didn’t land with applause from critics and it also received a mixed reaction from fans.

There was a lot of very strong criticism directed at Snyder, the film, and those who worked on the production. One of those individuals, cinematographer Larry Fong, told ComicBookDebate that he can’t accept some of the reactions to the film:

“Everyone has their opinion. Does everyone have to love the movie? Of course not… visually I feel like me and my crew killed it, so when you hear things about it, it kind of hurts. To be honest the weirdest thing… I’ve never really talked about this. But the weirdest thing, and this has happened a lot,

Amy Adams Jokes She Played ‘Nuns and Virgins’ to Avoid Sexual Harassment in Hollywood

Amy Adams Jokes She Played ‘Nuns and Virgins’ to Avoid Sexual Harassment in Hollywood
Amy Adams has a unique strategy for warding off unwanted advances on movie sets.

The five-time Oscar nominee, 43, opened up about her experience dealing with sexual harassment in the work place during an group interview with The Hollywood Reporter to tout her new HBO show Sharp Objects.

“I think most women have experienced it, even if it’s just feeling unsafe rejecting somebody. And apologizing, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry, I must have been sending you the wrong signal,’ when, really, it’s like, ‘No, I think I said I don’t want to go out with you, I don

Amy Adams Goes Dark: 'Sharp Objects' and a Female Antihero for a Troubled Time

It's not 20 minutes into our interview, and already Gillian Flynn is in tears.

The best-selling author of Gone Girl is huddled with Mad Men writer Marti Noxon and five-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams in a private room at a bustling Brentwood steakhouse. They're here to talk about their prestige murder mystery, Sharp Objects, adapted from Flynn's lesser-read debut novel about a deeply troubled newspaper reporter, Camille Preaker, who cuts and draws all over her skin. On the surface, Flynn, 47, wouldn't seem to have much in common with the character — except that she too was once ...

Avengers: Infinity War Nominated For 7 Teen Choice Awards

A few days ago, we were finally able to add Avengers: Infinity War to the prestigious list of movies to gross $2 billion worldwide – not that that came as much of a surprise, mind you.

In doing so, it became only the fourth feature film ever to surpass the $2 billion milestone, an honor it now shares with The Force Awakens, Titanic and the one true box office king, James Cameron’s Avatar, which is still somehow – almost inexplicably – in a league of its own at $2.78 billion. But the good news doesn’t end there.

Giving Kevin Feige and co. even more to smile about, the Teen Choice Awards released their nominations the other day and Infinity War managed to score a whopping 7, including Choice Action Movie, Choice Action Movie Actor and more. Not only that, but Marvel also saw Black Panther and Thor: Ragnarok earn a few nods, too, with the

Celebrating Man of Steel’s 5th Anniversary: Why it is a great modern day Superman origin

Ricky Church praises Man of Steel on its fifth anniversary…

Five years ago today the Superman film franchise was revitalized with a reboot from director Zack Snyder and writer/producer David Goyer in the form of Man of Steel. It’s crazy to think of that as the beginning of the Dceu and seems a lifetime ago given all the controversies surrounding the films since, but this is a mark that should be celebrated. I believe Man of Steel to be the modern origin and story Superman needed for today’s world and is perhaps the best film in the Dceu thus far.

One of the perceived difficulties of bringing Superman to film is how ‘unrelatable’ he is as a character and hero. It’s often that we hear Superman is too good; he’s too strong; no one can relate to anyone with that much power. When you break it down,

Blumhouse Television is developing a limited series based on James McBride’s 2013 National Book Award-winning novel The Good Lord Bird, and Ethan Hawke is set to star as abolitionist leader John Brown. Not only that, but Hawke will also co-write the script with Mark Richard (Fear of the Walking Dead).

Blumhouse has made a name for themselves with the horror genre, and Hawke previously worked with them on The Purge. But they are looking to expand their brand into other genres. They are also a part of Amy Adams' HBO series Sharp Objects and Showtime’s upcoming The Loudest Voice in the Room.

Apparently, The Good Lord Bird is one of Hawke's favorite books, and the story follows "a young slave who joins up with Brown, disguises himself as a girl to avoid being recognized, and eventually participates in the famous 1859 raid on the army depot at Harpers Ferry.

Inside Jason Blum’s Plan to Take TV by Storm
Jason Blum has made a fortune creeping out movie audiences with low-budget horror hits like “Paranormal Activity,” “The Purge” and most recently “Get Out,” the kind of zeitgeisty smash that comes along once a decade or so. Now, one of Hollywood’s most revolutionary producers is bringing a different kind of scary to the small screen.

Moving into television is enabling Blum to broaden his palette beyond the blood-and-gore-spattered stories that established his reputation. These days, he’s tackling an even darker subject — politics.

Moving into television is enabling Blum to broaden his palette beyond the blood-and-gore-spattered stories that established his reputation. These days, he’s tackling an even darker subject — politics.

For Blum, nothing is more terrifying than the news out of Washington and the conservative media that has enabled Trump’s rise. “Roger Ailes scares me,” says Blum. “Steve Bannon scares me.”

In fact, Blum has limited series coming up on both controversial public figures: One, based on Gabriel Sherman’s book “The Loudest Voice in the Room,” about the fallen Fox News chief, will air on Showtime,

Here’s Who Should Play the Kids From ‘It’ as Adults in ‘Chapter 2’ (and Who Really Is Playing Them)

Here’s Who Should Play the Kids From ‘It’ as Adults in ‘Chapter 2’ (and Who Really Is Playing Them)
Stephen King’s novel “It” is actually two parallel stories, about a group of seven kids fighting the monstrous clown Pennywise, and then returning to finish the job as adults. With “It: Chapter One” a huge horror movie success, here’s who we think should pick up the reins in “It: Chapter Two.”

Bill Denbrough (Jaeden Lieberher): Edward Norton

An essential part of Bill Denbrough is that, as a child, he struggled with a stuttering problem. Jaeden Lieberher did a solid job dealing with the stutter as the leader of the Losers Club. Edward Norton, who has a decent physical resemblance to Lieberher, has proven to be one of the best stutterers possibly ever in his turn in the 1996 thriller “Primal Fear.” When he returns to Derry, the stutter does to, giving Norton a chance to deploy those skills again.

Jaeden Lieberher’s Choice: Christian Bale
