‘IT: Chapter Two’: Writer Gary Dauberman To Bring New Horrors To Stephen King’s It Sequel
eelyajekiM   |  

It Pennywise 2017

Having only seen bits and pieces of original IT TV miniseries, I didn’t know what to expect from the new Stephen King’s IT from director Andy Muschietti. But after catching a screening of new film, I can understand why everyone is so afraid of clowns. That being said, there are a few flaws, but overall, I had a terrifyingly good time. The reaction has been so good that Warner Bros. feels confident enough to move forward with a sequel.

Pennywise It Trailer

Clowns are pretty much at the top of the list of things to be afraid of. Though they can bring laughter with slapstick comedy, but one can’t get over the fact that there is something truly terrifying about them as well. Which is why coulrophobia — the fear of clowns — has been popularized in pop culture. And we owe a great deal of thanks to Pennywise from Stephen King‘s novel It for manifesting those fears of clowns.

A brand new adaptation of It, from Mama director Andy Muschietti, is just a few more months away, and now WB has released a new trailer that brings back all those fears we thought we suppressed. Check it out here below.

The Movie God   |

Now that the franchise as a whole is going by the name The Conjuring Universe, we knew it was only a matter of time before The Conjuring 3 would be on the way. The first two movies making over $638 million worldwide combined probably helps as well.

It’s being reported that New Line Cinema has hired The Conjuring 2 writer David Leslie Johnson to work on the script for the trilogy-maker. James Wan, who directed the first two movies and was also a writer and producer on the second installment, is expected to be involved in the project, though the report says he’ll likely produce this time with a new director brought in.

‘The Conjuring 2’ Trailer: James Wan Scares The Bejeezus Out Of You

The Conjuring 2 starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson

There were few recent films that were genuinely able to capture the essence of fright and scares like James Wan‘s The Conjuring. The director proved that jump scares weren’t necessary, and was able to build tension with precision. Now he’s back to follow that up with The Conjuring 2, with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprising their roles as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. However, the sequel will take them across the pond all the way to England where they will have to face what is described as England’s Amityville.

Check out the new trailer here below.

Cary Fukunaga Shares Thoughts On ‘It’ Departure
The Movie God   |  

Pennywise in Stephen King's It

It was a sad, sad day when we found out that True Detective season one director Cary Fukunaga had decided to walk away from the two-part movie adaptation of Stephen King’s horror tome It after a dispute with New Line Cinema on the direction of the project. He had been working on development for about three years.

Now Fukunaga has finally shared his thoughts on the departure. But don’t continue below expecting to see an angry, frustrated rant aimed toward New Line. No matter how infuriated the director was by the way things played out, he took the high road when talking about what happened. At least this time.

‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’ Reboot In The Works

Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Kruger

Five years ago, Platinum Dunes attempted to revive A Nightmare On Elm Street with a brand spanking new reboot for a younger generation. However, the film, starring Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Kruger, wasn’t very well-received by critics or audiences, and bombed at the box office. But when it comes to horror icons of those cheesy and campy slasher films of 80s, they do not stay dead for long.

New Line Cinema will once again be stirring up a few nightmares in an all new reboot of A Nightmare On Elm Street, which will reportedly ignore the damage that was done in the 2010 film.

More on the story below.

Guillermo del Toro Departs ‘Justice League Dark’; ‘Sandman’ Now At New Line Cinema
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Guillermo del Toro

The Hollywood Reporter ran an article yesterday about how Warner Bros. is currently in the process of moving some of their less kid-friendly DC Comics movie projects, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s Sandman adaptation, over to their New Line Cinema division.

Buried at the very end was the most distressing news the article contained: Guillermo del Toro is no longer directing Justice League Dark, by far the one future DC film venture I wanted to see made more than anything.

James Wan To Direct ‘The Conjuring 2’; WB Pushes Sequel To 2016
eelyajekiM   |  

James Wan

James Wan‘s The Conjuring was a bonafide thriller and critical success, and of course when you have a box office smash that also happens to be an R-rated horror film, studios want to see more — remember Saw. The film also contained various demon-possessed objects like the Annabelle doll which received its own spinoff film, Annabelle — which was also another box office hit.

Considering Wan said he was going to take a break from horror by directing Fast and Furious 7, some wondered when we would make his return to the scare-filled genre. It appears that his break won’t last very long, as it has been confirmed that he will return to direct The Conjuring 2, which is set for a 2016 release.

Shazam Might Not Be On ‘Justice League’ Film Roster

Shazam DC Comics Header Image

It’s only been a few hours since it was announced that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would play Black Adam in Shazam. While it was thought that this news meant that Shazam’s introduction might be included in Justice League, New Line’s Toby Emmerich has said that possibility is slim to none. The film will still have the DC brand name attached to it, but Shazam will be produced under New Line’s banner, which is actually a branch of WB. That being said, it is unlikely that the hero will be accepted into the DC Cinematic Universe.

Hit the jump for the full quote.
