The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina's Aunt Zelda Is No Stranger to Fantasy

  • Popsugar
Everyone's favorite teenage witch is getting a modern update, thanks to Netflix's The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Set to premiere on Oct. 26, the highly anticipated series will present a darker version of the classic character Sabrina Spellman. The series comes from the minds behind Riverdale, and it stars Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina. As always, Sabrina's teenage witch years will be guided by her aunts, Aunt Zelda and Aunt Hilda. Comedic British actress Lucy Davis is set to play the more motherly of the two sisters, Aunt Hilda, while the stern Aunt Zelda will be played by Australian actress Miranda Otto.

Otto is no stranger to the fantasy and horror genres. She's best known for her role in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings films, in which she played the fierce shieldmaiden Éowyn. Her iconic character was one of the movie's few female heroes, and a kickass one at that.

With the latest chapter of The Conjuring Universe, The Nun, proving to be another solid hit for Warner Bros. at the box office (and taking the series beyond a combined $1.4 billion at the worldwide box office), producer Peter Safran and writer Gary Dauberman have been providing an update on several planned future instalments in the horror franchise.

Firstly, speaking to Cinema Blend, Safran has said that The Conjuring 3 is “actually coming along great. David Leslie Johnson is working on the screenplay, and I feel pretty confident they will have that one up and running next year.”

The Nun Soars Past $200 Million Worldwide At The Box Office

It may not be receiving the best reviews, with a score of 26% on Rotten Tomatoes at time of writing, but the latest outing in The Conjuring franchise has proven that horror is healthier than ever, and we couldn’t be happier about it.

This weekend, The Nun followed up its spectacular opening with more impressive numbers, bringing its global box office haul to an incredible $209.2 million. Broken down, that’s $85.2 million on home turf with another $124 million coming in from overseas. And with a budget of only $22 million, you can probably imagine how happy the studio is with this.

In fact, The Nun will soon soar past Annabelle, which currently sits at $275 million worldwide, and while it likely won’t beat out fellow franchise films like The Conjuring 2 ($320.3 million) or The Conjuring ($319.4 million), no one can deny that Corin Hardy’s spinoff has been a tremendous success.

‘The Nun’s Stairway To Heaven: ‘Conjuring’ Universe Pic Soaring Past $200M Worldwide

  • Deadline
‘The Nun’s Stairway To Heaven: ‘Conjuring’ Universe Pic Soaring Past $200M Worldwide
The Nun‘s spirit continues to move all over this land, and by the end of Sunday, will count a global box office running tally of $209.2M, which, when split up, will be $124M+ overseas and $85.2M domestic.

Soon enough, the New Line horror release will fly past Annabelle‘s worldwide take of $275M. Among all Conjuring movies, Conjuring 2 is the highest-grossing title globally at $320.3M, followed by The Conjuring at $319.4M, and then Annabelle: Creation with $306.5M. The Nun‘s global haul by tomorrow will have bested all the global cumes of The Purge and Paranormal Activity movies.

In its second weekend stateside, the Demian Bichir-Taissa Farmiga movie continues to draw a huge under-25 crowd at 61%, a hard demographic to dynamite out of the house and into the theater when you’re not a superhero film. Domestic second weekend is shaping up to be $18.4M, -66% at 3,876 theaters.

‘The Predator’ Hunts Down No. 1 Box Office Spot

20th Century Fox’s “The Predator” will take the top spot on the box office charts from “The Nun” this weekend with an estimated $26 million opening from 4,037 screens, but will need help from overseas markets to stay out of the red.

Shane Black’s addition to the ’80s monster franchise looks like it will have an opening slightly higher than the $24.7 million the last installment, “Predators,” made in 2010. But “The Predator” is a far more expensive film, with an $88 million budget compared to $40 million for its predecessor. The larger budget is mainly due to the increased CGI in the film, as well as the salaries of stars like Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown and Keegan-Michael Key.

‘The Predator’ Chomps On $2.5M Thursday Night – Box Office

  • Deadline
‘The Predator’ Chomps On $2.5M Thursday Night – Box Office
20th Century Fox’s reboot of The Predator grossed $2.5M last night in Thursday previews which started at 7Pm.

That’s lower than the $4.2M previews made by Ridley Scott’s R-rated Alien: Covenant from May 2017, which went on to a $36M opening, and just under the $3.4M made by Kingsman: The Golden Circle which continued on to a $39M three-day. Tracking has forecasted that The Predator has a shot at No. 1 with $25M-$30M. As we mentioned earlier, Hurricane Florence nor the sex offender controversy that dogged Predator last week at Tiff will be a stumbling factor at the B.O.

The previous version of Predator in 2010 entitled Predators and produced by Robert Rodriguez for $38M (before P&A) posted a $10.4M opening day, and $24.7M weekend. This Predator cost more at an estimated $88M. Predators finaled at $52M stateside, $127.2M worldwide. The best opening for a Predator movie belongs to its Alien crossover,

It will also venture into the homes of paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren, who are played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga.

“This is the Warrens picking up where they bring Annabelle home after we see that in The Conjuring after they visit the nurses’ apartment. It happens a little while after that, so they bring it home and they’re aware of the doll’s evil, and sort of worry about

Indiegogo Campaign Launched for New Book Scared Sacred: Idolatry, Religion And Worship In The Horror Film, Featuring a Foreword by Doug Bradley

The supernatural and the religious often become intertwined in battles for souls and psyches in horror cinema, and with the rising popularity of movies such as The Conjuring films and the enduring legacy of franchises like Hellraiser, House of Leaves Publishing is looking to bring the discussion of faith-based and worship-centric horror to the printed page in a new book called Scared Sacred: Idolatry, Religion and Worship in the Horror Film, which recently launched an Indiegogo campaign.

Edited by Rebecca Booth, Erin Thompson, and Rf Todd, Scared Sacred features a foreword by legendary actor and author Doug Bradley. Collecting essays from a wide range of authors and experts, Scared Sacred looks at religion in horror cinema through the lens of four key categories: Christianity, Mysticism, Occultism, and Beyond Belief. In these four sections, the book examines the impact and depiction of religion in an extensive list of horror films, including The Conjuring movies,

Aliens Rule The World in First Trailer For Rupert Wyatt's Sci-Fi Thriller Captive State

“No crime. No poverty. No unemployment. The state of our union is strong.”

The first trailer has been released for the upcoming sci-fi thriller Captive State and it looks like a fascinating film! The movie comes from director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and the story is set in a Chicago neighborhood "nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, Captive State explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents".

I love the concept of an alien race that is already ruling over the world. Sure, things may seem like they are great now, but let’s just wait and see if they bust out that cook book “To Serve Man”.

The movie also has a great cast that includes John Goodman, Ashton Sanders (Moonlight), Jonathan Majors (When We Rise) and Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring).

‘The Nun’ Got a Big Box Office Boost From Latinos
With $162 million grossed worldwide after five days, “The Nun” is on pace to become the highest-grossing film in the “Conjuring” universe, and Mexican and Latino moviegoers are playing a big hand in the horror film’s robust start.

According to Warner Bros. and comScore data from the film’s $53.5 million domestic opening weekend — the best for a “Conjuring” film and second-best for a September release — 36 percent of the audience was Latino, up from 17 percent for “The Conjuring” and 26 percent for last year’s “Annabelle: Creation.” On top of that, Mexico was the top overseas market with $10.7 million grossed.

‘The Predator’ Won’t Be Stopped By Hurricane Florence, Or Controversy, At Box Office

‘The Predator’ Won’t Be Stopped By Hurricane Florence, Or Controversy, At Box Office
20th Century Fox’s sixth iteration of The Predator is expected to hit its tracking range between $25M-$30M at around 4,000 locations including Imax and Plf locations.

In the wake of buzzy promo blitzes at CinemaCon and San Diego Comic-Con, the film hit a bump in the road as it headed to Tiff last week and that was that director Shane Black cast a friend who was a registered sex offender. The convicted offender’s scene with Olivia Munn was cut last week. While studio marketing and PR executives fear this type of black ink in this day and age which can throw a film’s commercial trajectory off its tracks, many of those in distribution do not believe it will impact general moviegoers’ decision to see the $88M-budgeted R-rated sci-fi film this weekend. “It’s a matter that’s in Hollywood’s orbit,” said one non-Fox studio executive.
