10 Best Horror Movies of 2018 You've Already Missed

10 Best Horror Movies of 2018 You've Already Missed
We're barely past the midpoint and it's already been a great year for horror movies. A Quiet Place pleased critics and genre aficionados in droves, Hereditary left audiences shocked and gasping, Upgrade delivered unprecedented ultraviolence, and Annihilation found an unlikely yet enthralling intersect between fantasy and body horror. We've also seen solid sequels in Insidious: The Last Key, The First Purge, and Hellraiser: Judgment. And the best may be yet to come, with The Nun, The Predator, and Halloween all coming down the pike when it comes to 2018 horror Movies.

Sure, there have been some disappointments as well but there've also been some incredible genre offerings that have fallen through the cracks. If you're one of those cinephiles who complains there's nothing new or original horror movies being produced these days, you simply aren't looking hard enough.

But hey, that's what I'm here for: To separate the wheat from the

New Film Adaptation of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary to Star Jason Clarke?

Readers first learned that "sometimes dead is better" when Stephen King's Pet Sematary was published in 1983, and they'll soon learn that morbid lesson again with Paramount Pictures' upcoming reimagining of the heart-wrenching horror novel, which could potentially star Jason Clarke.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Clarke is in talks to star in the lead role as a doctor and father (named Louis Creed if the movie gives the character the same name as the one in the book), who moves his family to a country home near the cursed burial grounds where pets have been laid to rest... before coming back to life with a vengeance. No other cast members have currently been announced for the new Pet Sematary movie.

Variety previously revealed that Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, the filmmakers behind 2014's Starry Eyes, have been set by Paramount to direct a new take on King's classic 1983 novel about life,

Helen Mirren Speaks Out Against Netflix: ‘It’s Devastating for Film Directors’

Helen Mirren Speaks Out Against Netflix: ‘It’s Devastating for Film Directors’
Helen Mirren would probably pick team Cannes if she had to choose a side in the current war of words between the film festival and Netflix. The Oscar-winning actress is making headlines for telling The i newspaper that Netflix is “devastating” for filmmakers and cinema at large. Mirren says the streaming platform is robbing cinema of the “communal” experience that is so essential.

“It’s devastating for people like my husband [“Ray” director Taylor Hackford], film directors, because they want their movies to be watched in a cinema with a group of people,” Mirren said. “So it’s a communal thing.”

Ironically, Mirren admits she loves watching movies on her iPad (she must be using Amazon Prime). The actress has been touring the world in promotion of her film “The Leisure Seeker,” in which she stars opposite Donald Sutherland, and she went viral earlier this month for campaigning for stunt actors to receive their own Oscar category.

Box-Office Weekend: Black Panther Wins Another Weekend

Adding an estimated $108 million to its coffers, Black Panther, easily topped the weekend box office for the second week in a row. The continued dominance of the latest entry to the Marvel canon allowed it to become only the fourth film ever to bring in over $100 million in its second weekend of release, this also makes it the fifth highest grossing title domestically in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Elsewhere, the weekend’s other new releases finished with decent showings over the weekend.

The comedy Game Night finished in a distant second place behind Black Panther, with $16.6 million. Despite falling to third place, the animated Peter Rabbit brought in $12.5 million to raise its three-week total to respectable $71.3 million. The Natalie Portman-starring Annihilation finished with a somewhat unimpressive $11 million in fourth place, but could benefit from decent word-of-mouth to gain some traction in the coming weeks.

Box-Office Weekend: Black Panther Wins Easily

With an estimated $192 million for the three-day weekend, the latest entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU), Black Panther, easily topped the weekend box office finishing nearly $175 million ahead of the film in second place.

The animated Peter Rabbit finished in a distant second place with $17.3 million, giving that film a two-week total of $48.2 million). Fifty Shades Freed fell from first to third, earning $16.9 million, which is approximately $60 million less than it made it its initial elongated week of release. Elsewhere, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle held onto fourth place for a second straight week adding $7.9 million to raise its nine-week total to $377.6 million.

Box-Office Weekend: Fifty Shades Freed On Top

Surprisingly, the top three spots of this weekend’s box office belonged to three new releases. First, the latest (and presumably last) film in the “Fifty Shades” franchise, Fifty Shades Freed, debuted in the number one spot with $38.8 million. This pushed the franchise over the $1 billion mark globally—an impressive feat for any franchise, despite the disputed critical quality of it. The family-friendly (for the most part) Peter Rabbit brought in $25 million over the weekend, which was good enough for second place. Finally, the Clint Eastwood-directed action film The 15:17 to Paris debuted in third place with $12.6 million.

Fourth place was claimed by last week’s first-place finisher and recent box-office juggernaut Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which added another $9.8 million to raise its eight-week total to $365.7 million. Elsewhere, The Greatest Showman took fifth place with $6.4 million, giving it an eight-week total of $146.5 million. Maze Runner: The Death Cure

'Fifty Shades Freed' dominates North America on $38.8m

'Fifty Shades Freed' dominates North America on $38.8m
Erotic franchise finale delivers lowest debut of series.

Fifty Shades Freed, Universal’s finale to its erotic drama franchise, dominated the competition in North America as it opened top on $38.8m despite scoring the lowest debut of the series.

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan star in the R-rated release, which arrived in 3,768 venues, some 20% behind the $46.6m number two launch exactly a year ago of Fifty Shades Darker, and less than 50% of what Fifty Shades Of Grey achieved on $85.2m back in 2015.

Sony Pictures launched children’s film Peter Rabbit in second place on a decent $25m in 3,735 venues, while Clint Eastwood’s terrorism thriller The 15:17 To Paris opened third via Warner Bros on a limp $12.6m in 3,042.

Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle slipped three slots to four on $9.8m for $365.7m after eight weekends, and Fox’s Maze Runner: The Death Cure, added $6m for $49m and fell four places to number six in its

Netflix and ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’ Made Exhibition History With Just 4 Words: ‘Only on Netflix Tonight’

  • Indiewire
You’ve probably never heard of “Breakout,” Columbia Pictures’ 1975 prison-break movie starring Charles Bronson. That’s to be expected — it’s a ‘B’ movie at best — but its successful release was one of the most important in film distribution history. Why? Because “Breakout” was released on 1,300 screens simultaneously, with national TV advertising. At that time, TV ads for movies were all but unheard of, and releases tended to be either initially exclusive in downtown theaters, or shown in different territories at different times.

Despite predictions that it was a waste of money, “Breakout” was an immediate hit. That convinced Universal to do the same thing for “Jaws” less than a month later, and that film’s massive success remains the most significant change in exhibition history. By creating the notion of a shared experience for 2 million people, it created the template for how most studio features are released today.
