‘It Chapter Two’ Director Andy Muschietti Would Love To Remake ‘The Howling’ – ScareDiego At Comic-Con
Toward the end of tonight’s New Line ScareDiego session of It Chapter Two, the cast and director Andy Muschietti were asked by a fan in the crowd what other horror films they would remake next, and what titles they would refuse to touch.

“I assume to the chagrin of Stephen King that we should not remake The Shining,” said James Ransone to applause.

“Something like Rosemary’s Baby,” said Jessica Chastain suggeting a classic that shouldn’t be rebooted, “something that comes from a director who is incredibly visionary, and they really told the story in their own way; I can’t imagine remaking.”

Other titles Hollywood should keep their hands off per the cast: John Carpenter’s They Live, and though not a horror film, Big Trouble in Little China.

However, if Muschietti could remake another horror pic after Stephen King’s It, he told the crowd it would the 1981 pic The Howling.

Movie Review – Annabelle Comes Home (2019)

Annabelle Comes Home, 2019.

Directed by Gary Dauberman.

Starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Mckenna Grace, Madison Iseman, and Katie Sarife.

Synopsis:

While babysitting the daughter of Ed and Lorraine Warren, a teenager and her friend unknowingly awaken an evil spirit trapped in a doll.

As garish as the prospect of a spin-off franchise based on The Conjuring‘s creepy possessed doll Annabelle seemed at first – backed up by 2014’s Annabelle being really quite terrible – 2017’s surprisingly decent sequel, Annabelle: Creation, suggested an inoffensive cinematic niche for the “character” to exist in.

And though this threequel brings plenty of promise to the table – namely supporting roles for The Conjuring‘s Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, and the previous film’s writer Gary Dauberman returning to both write and direct – Annabelle Comes Home is ultimately a shockingly snoozy haunted house romp with desperately little creative or even basically moody on offer.

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Swings to $185 Million Launch at Box Office
The Marvel-mania that has loaded Disney’s box office receipts has now turned its good fortunes to Sony, as “Spider-Man: Far From Home” has earned a six-day box office opening of $185 million, the largest ever for a film released over the Fourth of July weekend.

By comparison, the 2017 film “Spider-Man: Homecoming” earned $154 million in its first six days, representing a 20% increase for this sequel. Worldwide, the film opened in all territories except Italy after releasing in China and Japan last weekend, and now has a global total of $580 million.

For Sony, the success of “Far From Home” is a welcome reverse of fortune after the release of last month’s “Men In Black: International,” which has been relying on overseas grosses as it has only grossed $72 million so far in North America. “Far From Home” has set a new six-day opening record for the studio, as well as records

The Legends Behind the Artifacts of 'Annabelle Comes Home'
[This story contains spoilers for Annabelle Comes Home.]

The cursed doll Annabelle was first introduced to horror audiences in The Conjuring (2013), and proved to be so compelling that the porcelain figure quickly became the subject of her own franchise with Annabelle (2014), Annabelle: Creation (2017) and the latest, Gary Dauberman's Annabelle Comes Home.

New Line's Annabelle and Conjuring films are based on accounts that paranormal researchers claim to be true. But with the latest installment, when the theater lights turn back on, viewers may be left with more questions than answers.

Annabelle vs. Chucky: Which Killer Doll Rules at the Box Office?

Annabelle vs. Chucky: Which Killer Doll Rules at the Box Office?
Now that “Annabelle Comes Home” is in theaters, horror fans have the chance to see not one but two evil dolls in theaters: Annabelle, the horrific beacon of the “Conjuring” universe, and Chucky, the knife-wielding friend-to-the-end first introduced in “Child’s Play” 31 years ago.

Creepy dolls have a long history in film and TV, but Chucky had the evil-doll lane mostly to himself from 1988 to 2004, with five films that grossed $125 million domestically. Adjusted for inflation to present-day totals, that roughly equates to $251 million.

But this decade, Annabelle has taken over as the top killer doll in Hollywood. Since her debut in 2013’s “The Conjuring,” Annabelle’s decrepit visage has been a major factor in the rise of the “Conjuring” series and in New Line Cinema’s revitalization as a horror house. She’s made beating Chucky look like (sorry)… child’s play, as each of her two films so far

How a First-Time Director Handled Annabelle Comes Home

Don Kaye Jun 27, 2019

Screenwriter turned director Gary Dauberman on making the horror movie he wanted with Annabelle Comes Home.

After penning Annabelle (2014) and Annabelle: Creation (2017), along with related films The Nun and The Curse of La Llorona, screenwriter Gary Dauberman makes his directorial debut with the third entry in the series, Annabelle Comes Home. The new film takes the story of the malevolent doll -- which acts less like a living entity herself and more as a conduit for all kinds of unearthly spirits and creatures -- back where it started, to the home museum of real-life demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, who we first met in 2013’s The Conjuring.

When Ed and Lorraine (played once again by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) go out of town on a brief overnight trip, they leave their daughter Judy home with her trusted babysitter Mary Ellen. But after Mary Ellen’s troubled

How Annabelle Comes Home Fits into The Conjuring Universe

Don Kaye Jun 26, 2019

Director Gary Dauberman and stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson share their thoughts on Annabelle, the Warrens and more.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return to the roles of real-life demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren in Annabelle Comes Home, the third movie in the Annabelle series that is itself a spin-off of The Conjuring movies, in which Wilson and Farmiga first played the parts of the courageous yet faith-inspired paranormal investigators and exorcists.

Although the Warrens mainly bookend the new film -- which is centered about their daughter Judy (Mckenna Grace) and two friends as they battle the hideously evil title doll -- Farmiga tells us in the video interview below that it’s fun to slip back into Lorraine’s skin: “The danger is to get too comfortable in these roles,” says the actress. “But Lorraine -- even the little time we spend with Lorraine, her

The latest chapter in the ever-growing Conjuring universe is here and the verdict is in. Annabelle Comes Home, based on the early indication from Rotten Tomatoes, may not be at the top of the food chain with this franchise, but it's apparently not half bad! Granted, Rotten Tomatoes is just a general indicator. That said, as far as third entries in a horror spin-off franchise go, this doesn't seem to be a bad bet for those who are looking for a little bit of spooky business at the movies this weekend.

On the critical side, the movie has a decent 64 percent approval rating, with 69 reviews counted. The audience rating is a bit better, currently sitting at 74 percent.

Film Review: Horror is Worth a Visit in 'Annabelle Comes Home'

Chicago – There is such an unnerving quality to older dolls, which is why they lend themselves so perfectly to horror stories. There’s just an unsettling feeling when looking at their static expression, usually plastered with a permanent smile that gives me terrible flashbacks to when I worked retail.

Oddly enough, “Annabelle Comes Home” similarly elicits familiar feelings of terror but channels it through an 80’s horror homage.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

We’ve strayed far enough from the ground zero franchise, “The Conjuring”, to forget where it all even began. I can gladly say that it doesn’t matter how we were introduced to Annabelle, the plucky, demon-possessed doll that fuels our nightmares because we’re at a point where this side-franchise has been pardoned of its past sins. What started out as a prequel spin-off (“Annabelle”), which then got a much superior prequel of its own (“Annabelle: Creation”), has finally had

Box Office: ‘Annabelle Comes Home’ and ‘Yesterday’ Take on ‘Toy Story 4’
The weekend box office has gone to the dolls. “Annabelle Comes Home,” a supernatural horror film about a possessed toy, is facing off against another band of plastic figurines: “Toy Story 4.”

Disney-Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” is expected to dominate box office charts again over newcomers “Annabelle Comes Home” and “Yesterday,” a fantasy musical set to the Beatles classics.

Annabelle Comes Home” is getting a head start on the weekend, debuting Wednesday in 3,525 North American theaters. It’s expected to earn $30 million over the five-day frame. Warner Bros. and New Line are distributing “Annabelle Comes Home,” a sequel to 2014’s “Annabelle” and 2017’s “Annabelle: Creation” and the seventh entry in the Conjuring franchise. Should estimates hold, “Annabelle Comes Home” would rank on the lower end of Conjuring debuts, which have ranged from “The Nun’s” $53 million to the first “Annabelle’s” $37 million.

‘Toy Story 4’ Climbs To $135M+ Through 4 Days & Will Dominate Next Weekend Before ‘Spider-Man’ Swings In – B.O. Preview

  • Deadline
Disney’s Toy Story 4 drew an estimated $14.2 million Monday, taking its four-day total to $135.1M. It will continue to conquer the box office into this weekend with $60M-$70M ( a 40%-50% drop) before Sony/Marvel’s Spider-Man: Far From Home brings another flood of cash in next Tuesday.

Toy Story 4‘s first Monday is the fourth best for a Disney animated film after Incredibles 2 ($23.6M), Finding Dory ($19.5M) and Toy Story 3 ($15.6M).

Some in the distribution community have expressed concerned there’s a sequelitis funk in the marketplace after Toy Story 4 came in under its $140M-plus projections. Sequelitis really isn’t to blame here as audiences showed in bulk that they made Toy Story 4 the biggest domestic opening in the 24-year old Pixar franchise. Disney-reported Monday actuals came in at $120.9M for the weekend, higher than the $118M the studio was originally observing Sunday morning.

‘Annabelle Comes Home’ Review: The Best ‘Conjuring’ Spin-Off Brings John Hughes to the Usual Horror Routine

‘Annabelle Comes Home’ Review: The Best ‘Conjuring’ Spin-Off Brings John Hughes to the Usual Horror Routine
Marvel and Star Wars delivered the biggest event movies of the past decade, but “The Conjuring” franchise has churned along with more confidence and consistency than either of them. James Wan’s 2013 entry set the template in motion, with real-life demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) providing a backdrop for endless jump scares. Having grossed upwards of $1.6 billion, “The Conjuring” universe has proven that sometimes, the most lucrative ideas require less CGI wizardry than spooky silence, and the lingering possibility that something terrifying could break it.

Well, that, and one helluva spooky doll. Annabelle, one of several horror tropes laying within the Warrens’ cabinet of paranormal monstrosities, showed the potential to carry her own creepy spin-off from the very first scene of “The Conjuring.” With “Annabelle” and prequel “Annabelle: Creation,” the stationary figure became a gateway for demonic forces seeking the souls of young children. “Annabelle Comes Home
