New August Release Date for Slender Man Movie

  • DailyDead
The modern-day boogeyman of the internet will have to wait a bit longer to haunt theaters in 2018, as Screen Gems has changed the release date for their Slender Man movie.

According to Box Office Mojo, Slender Man is now scheduled to come out in theaters on August 24th, moving it about three months from its previous May 18th release date.

Bloody Disgusting reports that Screen Gems has also taken the Shay Mitchell-starring horror film Cadaver off its release schedule. The movie was also slated to come out this year, but we'll have to wait and see where the new horror film—which follows a cop fighting an evil force in a hospital morgue—will land next on the calendar.

Directed by Sylvain White from a screenplay by David Birke (based on the character created by Victor Surge), Slender Man stars Joey King, Julia Goldani-Telles, Jaz Sinclair, Annalise Basso, and Javier Botet as Slenderman.

Insidious: The Last Key Review

2017 saw the horror genre go from strength to strength, films such as Get Out, Raw, and It proved that mainstream audiences still like to be scared, meaning that 2018 cinema screens will surely be filled with all manner of spooky things. The first such film to emerge is Insidious: The Last Key, the fourth film within the Insidious franchise. The first film, written by Leigh Whannell and directed by his Saw collaborator James Wan, was a smash success, introducing us to parapsychologist Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) and her helpers, Specs (Leigh Whannell) and Tucker (Angus Sampson), as the tried to help the terrified Lambert family.

‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Dominates Social Media Buzz With New Trailer

‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Dominates Social Media Buzz With New Trailer
Universal’s “Fifty Shades Freed” dominated social media buzz last week with 185,000 new conversations, thanks to the release of a new trailer on Jan. 2, according to media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service.

The trailer included the reveal in the final five seconds that Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele character is pregnant. The pregnancy announcement isn’t news to those who read the final installment of E.L. James’ erotic trilogy, published in 2012, but it had not been hinted at in the two previous films, “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Fifty Shades Darker.”

The two films, co-starring Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, have combined to gross $950 million worldwide. The final installment in the “Fifty Shades” movie trilogy is due in theaters on Feb. 9 — five days before Valentine’s Day.

Disney-Marvel’s “Black Panther” generated 60,000 new conversations last week after announcing that Kendrick Lamar would be co-producing the soundtrack, with the first track released on Jan. 5, and

‘Slender Man’ Trailer Uses All The Horror Tropes

The Slender Man legend is one of the oldest creepypasta stories around. So old that it feels like the Sony film revolving around this character feels stale on arrival. The trailer feels like one of those Funny or Die trailers without any type of punchline. While this feels like a total cash-in on the character, the question is, do fans of the story even care? Especially after the sad story that became a HBO documentary, Beware the Slenderman

You may remember that many people were trying to make a film adaptation out of The Slender Man but had many issues where many different people claimed they were the genesis of the character. In the Press Release I received, it seems like they nailed it down (or at least credited) to Victor Surge (which is a pseudonym of Eric Knudsen). Let’s watch the trailer, shall we?

Box Office: ‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Unlocks $2 Million on Thursday Night

Box Office: ‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Unlocks $2 Million on Thursday Night
Universal’s “Insidious: The Last Key” launched with a solid $2 million at 2,220 North American sites on Thursday night.

The fourth film in the “Insidious” franchise is expanding to 3,116 domestic locations on Friday, with tracking indicating a weekend opening in the $17 million to $20 million range. The strongest interest is coming from younger audiences — particularly women.

“Insidious: The Last Key” is pegged to finish third behind the fourth weekend of Disney’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and the third frame of Sony’s “Jumanji,” which will probably be battling for the top spot with around $25 million to $30 million each. “The Last Jedi” has hauled $544.6 million in North America in its first 20 days — becoming the sixth-largest all-time domestic grosser — while “Jumanji” has totaled $202.4 million in 13 days.

Fox’s third weekend of “The Greatest Showman” will likely come in fourth with around $11 million, followed by Universal’s third frame of “Pitch Perfect 3.” Additionally, STXfilms

First trailer & poster for ‘Slender Man’

Directed by Sylvain White (The Losers) and starring Joey King (Wish Upon), Julia Goldani-Telles, Jaz Sinclair, Annalise Basso and Javier Botet (Freehold, Mama), Slender Man tells the story of a tall, thin horrifying figure with unnaturally long arms and a featureless face, who is reputed to be responsible for the haunting and disappearance of countless children and teens.

In a small town in Massachusetts, four high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the lore of Slender Man. When one of the girls goes mysteriously missing, they begin to suspect that she is, in fact, His latest victim.

Movie Review – Insidious: The Last Key (2018)

Insidious: The Last Key, 2018.

Directed by Adam Robitel.

Starring Lin Shaye, Angus Sampson, Leigh Whannell, Josh Stewart, Caitlin Gerard, Kirk Acevedo, Javier Botet, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke, Tessa Ferrer, Ava Kolker, Hana Hayes, Marcus Henderson, Rose Byrne, and Patrick Wilson.

Synopsis:

Parapsychologist Dr. Elise Rainier faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet – in her own family home.

At this point, all I remember about the Insidious franchise are two things: how overrated they are overusing a demon that resembles Darth Maul’s mentally challenged relative as the main source for ineffective scares, and Lin Shaye’s elderly ghostbusting, one-liner wisecracking, courageous Dr. Elise Rainier typically stealing the show from Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne. Up until Insidious: The Last Key none of the installments has been outright terrible, but writer (and characters creator) Leigh Whannell (most known for collaborating with director James Wan on the first two entries and

Insidious: The Last Key Review

Adam Robitel’s Insidious: The Last Key fits snugly into James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s ghastly horror franchise, but rarely unlocks its full potential. Scares are ensured – even a few nifty setups that trick and treat to invigorating screams – but an overall story finds itself a bit too preoccupied with existing mythologies. Scenes constantly plug themselves into previous chapters by way of callbacks (like a switchboard operator speedily switching wires), but this means less of a focus on the story at hand. My love for the first three films echoes through multiple dimensions, which makes it even harder to admit that The Last Key is the series’ first stumbling point – no key to my nightmares.

When this new chapter opens, we meet Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) as a curious child living near a prison where death row inmates are regularly killed. It turns out that her gifts were a

Box Office: ‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Won’t Be Able to Haunt ‘The Last Jedi,’ ‘Jumanji’

Box Office: ‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Won’t Be Able to Haunt ‘The Last Jedi,’ ‘Jumanji’
The first weekend of 2018 will see one new wide release in North America with Universal’s “Insidious: The Last Key” challenging potent holdovers “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.”

The fourth film in the “Insidious” franchise is the studio’s latest collaboration with Blumhouse Productions, which delivered a trio of low-cost horror hits last year with “Split,” “Get Out,” and “Happy Death Day.” “Insidious: The Last Key” will launch on Friday at about 3,000 domestic locations with tracking indicating an opening in the $15 million to $18 million range, with younger audiences — particularly women — showing the strongest interest in the film.

That’s likely to place “The Last Key” in third behind the fourth weekend of Disney’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and the third weekend of Sony’s “Jumanji,” which will probably be battling for first with around $28 million to $30 million each. “The Last Jedi” has grossed $531.5 million domestically in its first 18 days

He gets in your head like a virus.

Watch the brand new trailer for Slender Man now. The film stars Joey King, Julia Goldani-Telles, Jaz Sinclair, Annalise Basso and Javier Botet.

In a small town in Massachusetts, four high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the lore of Slender Man. When one of the girls goes mysteriously missing, they begin to suspect that she is, in fact, His latest victim.

Some facts before you see the film:

Victor Surge is the original creator of Slender Man, the mythical Internet character who inspired Wisconsin 12-year-olds Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier to stab their friend in Waukesha woods on Sunday. Surge was the first to make a Photoshopped image of Slender Man, submitting it to a forum called Something Awful (Sa) in 2009. From there, Internet users created backstories and more manipulated images of the character, and it grew

Spooky First Teaser Trailer for Sylvain White's 'Slender Man' Movie

"He gets in your head... like a virus." Sony has released the first teaser trailer for the spooky Slender Man movie, based on the internet meme/myth about a tall, creepy, "slender" man that haunts kids. The whole Slender Man idea has already worked its way into pop culture and reality, so of course they've decided to make a movie about it. And so far this seems like just another horror thriller. Slender Man stars Joey King, Julia Goldani Telles, Annalise Basso, Jaz Sinclair, Javier Botet, Kevin Chapman, and Michael Reilly Burke. This teaser is way too obvious about covering up the blood and gore in order to get an MPAA approval, and that bothers me more than any of the footage. I am curious to see more, could turn out good. Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Sylvain White's Slender Man movie, direct from YouTube: Slender

The Slender Man Trailer is a Collection of Uncomfortable Imagery

Okay so I have watched this thing and I’m pretty much done with sleeping, the woods, and people that wear skinny suits.

Wow, this is just a whole lot of nope wrapped up in some hell nope. The fright that was born from the internet Slender Man is finally receiving his own film. Here’s the trailer and while you watch that I’m going to go build my impenetrable pillow fort that no monsters can get in.

Now the thing about Slender Man is that it’s always been a psychological thing and that looks exactly what this movie is looking to do. It is going to prey on all those things that make you cringe and wince which I’ll say is exactly what the trailer has done here.
