It Star Thinks Pennywise Is Scarier Than Stranger Things' Demogorgon
With New Line's highly-anticipated It remake hitting theaters in just eight short days, the young cast members who make up the group known as The Losers Club appeared on ABC's Good Morning America to promote this potential blockbuster. While this movie will be a breakout role for most of these young actors, one of the stars, Finn Wolfhard, is quite well-known already, for playing Will Byers in the hit Netflix series Stranger Things. Towards the end of their interview, Gma's Amy Robach asked Finn Wolfhard which of the two horror icons he's worked with is scarier, Pennywise the Clown, or the supernatural beast Demogorgon from Stranger Things. Here's what he had to say below.

‘The Shack’ Review: Octavia Spencer Is a Heavenly Presence in Manipulative Christian Drama

‘The Shack’ Review: Octavia Spencer Is a Heavenly Presence in Manipulative Christian Drama
When self-published novel “The Shack” hit shelves back in 2007, first-time author William P. Young’s Christian drama was met with significant controversy, thanks to its inventive portrayal of the Holy Trinity as an African American woman, a young Middle-Eastern man and an Asian woman. Despite outcry from the exact kind of religious audience the book was pursuing, the book became an unexpected smash hit. Ten years later, it’s finally spawned a glossy, inevitable Hollywood adaptation – and one made palatable only because of that same off-beat trio. That’s particularly true for Octavia Spencer, who literally embodies God in the Stuart Hazeldine film.

M. Night Shyamalan's Split Wins the Box Office 2 Weeks in a Row

M. Night Shyamalan's Split Wins the Box Office 2 Weeks in a Row
While January doesn't often produce huge box office hits, fans have come out in full force for Oscar-nominated films like Hidden Figures and La La Land, which both continue to fare well with solid box office numbers throughout the month. Last weekend, M. Night Shyamalan's Split over-performed with an impressive box office win with $40 million, and it was certainly expected to repeat, even with three new releases hitting theaters. Joining the box office fray this weekend is Sony's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Universal's A Dog's Purpose and The Weinstein Company's Gold. The race was expected to be much closer, but Split took advantage of a minimal second weekend drop to easily win with $26.2 million

The estimates from Box Office Mojo reveal that Split actually expanded into 161 more theaters for a total of 3,199, which may have helped minimize the traditional second weekend drop. The M. Night Shyamalan thriller only dropped 34.3% in its second weekend,

Can Resident Evil 6 Take Down Split at the Box Office?

Can Resident Evil 6 Take Down Split at the Box Office?
The month of January doesn't often usher in huge box office grosses, but horror fans came out in droves to see M. Night Shyamalan's Split, which took in just over $40 million last weekend. This thriller will have its work cut out for it this weekend, going up against three new releases, Sony's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Universal's A Dog's Purpose and The Weinstein Company's Gold to close out the month of January. We're predicting that, while it certainly may be a close race this weekend, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will take down Split with a projected $21.7 million, just barely beating Split with $20.6 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Resident Evil 6 will open in roughly 3,000 theaters, followed by A Dog's Purpose in 2,900 theaters and Gold in 2,200 theaters. As of now, Gold is sporting a middling 43% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, although Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and A Dog's Purpose

Pennywise is back and ready to feast off fear and children. Stephen Kings’ “It” is getting a new adaptation with Bill Skarsgård taking on the role of the bloodthirsty shape-shifting clown. A new photo of the actor as the sadistic creature has been revealed, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

The image shows Pennywise in the labyrinth of the sewer system beneath the town of Derry, Maine, wearing a frilly white suit and face paint.

“Pennywise shows up, he’s front and center, and he does his show. He has an act,” the film’s director Andrés Muschietti told EW. “So it’s weird all the time, and every little thing implies a further threat.”

Sam Worthington in First Trailer for Spiritual Journey Film 'The Shack'

"We've lost so much already, I don't want to lose you, too." Lionsgate has debuted a powerful trailer for an adaptation of a bestselling novel titled The Shack, a spiritual journey story about a father who spends time at a remote shack in Oregon and "finds important truths that will transform his understanding of tragedy and change his life forever." Sam Worthington stars, along with Octavia Spencer, Radha Mitchell, Tim McGraw, Graham Greene, Ryan Robbins, Megan Charpentier, Gage Munroe, Amélie Eve, Derek Hamilton, Jordyn Ashley Olson, Emily Holmes, and Aviv Alush as Jesus (you'll see). This is actually some serious religious propaganda, with a story about Worthington getting a "mysterious, personal invitation to meet with God at a place called The Shack." This looks tailor made for American audiences. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Stuart Hazeldine's The Shack, direct from YouTube: Based on the bestselling novel, The Shack

Starry Eyes Directors Set Sights on Mama Sequel

  • DailyDead
Following its financially successful theatrical run in 2013, the supernatural horror film Mama could get a sequel in the near future from the directors of 2014's well-received Starry Eyes.

News of the Mama sequel comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which reveals that Starry Eyes writers/directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch are in "final negotiations to rewrite and direct" the follow-up for Universal.

It's no surprise that Universal wants to move forward with a sequel, as the original film (directed by Andrés Muschietti and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro) was made for $15 million and ended up grossing $71 million domestically.

Mama centered on two sisters haunted by an eerie presence following their rescue from a five-year stay in the woods. The film starred Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier, and Isabelle Nélisse. It's not officially known if the original cast will reprise their roles for the sequel, but TheWrap reports that

Less-known Christmas movies: Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever

facebook

twitter

google+

We continue our hunt for an overlooked Christmas classic in the DVD bargain bin. Our latest treat? Grumpy Cat...

Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever is a hard film to write about.

Without wishing to exaggerate its effect, it almost makes you feel like you need to unlearn everything you thought you knew about cinema in order to give it a reasonable assessment. I suppose I should start by saying it’s not a 'good film', but then value judgements feel futile in the (adorable and super-smooshy) face of Grumpy Cat. Besides, whatever insult you could level at this film’s content is redundant. Odds are it’s already been covered by the mega-meta self-loathing that oozes from every scene.

What makes it so compelling, though, is the simple fact that it exists. That you can buy it on DVD. That you didn’t just pass out
