The House With A Clock In Its Walls

Universal Studios has released the second trailer for The House with a Clock in Its Walls. The family friendly horror comedy is directed by Eli Roth and stars Jack Black as an eccentric uncle who also happens to be a warlock, and Cate Blanchett as his witchy neighbor who is as charming and equally mystifying.

The film is actually based on the beloved children’s classic written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey, which is about a young boy who accidentally awakens the dead, and it is up to the strange town of witches and warlocks to rally together to put them to rest. Check out the latest trailer as well as a new poster below.

Andy Serkis is perhaps best known for his amazing motion-capture work in the Lord Of The Rings and rebooted Planet Of The Apes film series than anything else in his entire career. But now the master of creating characters like Gollum and Caesar takes a turn behind the camera for Mowgli. While the Serkis had previously done double-duty as actor and second-unit director for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, he’s making his feature directorial debut with Mowgli, a darker adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book.

The House With A Clock In Its Wall

Eli Roth collaborating with Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Entertainment is something that you’d think would never happen in a million years. One dives into the world of horrors beyond anyone’s imagination and the other explores the world of imagination. But with the right material, the two could be paired nicely. That’s what we are getting with Roth’s adaptation of The House with a Clock in Its Walls.

Based on John Bellairs‘ children story, with illustrations by Edward Gorey, the film follows Lewis (Owen Vaccaro), who moves into his uncle’s (Jack Black) creepy old house with a mysterious ticking clock and ends up accidentally waking up the dead. Check out the full trailer below.

Thor: Ragnarok poster

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok
4K Ultra HD | Blu-ray | DVD | Digital
Director: Taika Waititi
Screenwriter: Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle, Christopher Yost
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 130 Minutes
Release Date: March 6, 2018

Thor: Ragnarok was my favorite of the three MCU films that came out last year and I think it’s one of the better MCU films ever. Where the first two Thor films didn’t fully connect with audiences, Ragnarok gives a full tonal shift combining the established characters with a new sense of fun and spirit. This shift is due mostly to new director Taika Waititi (What We Do In The Shadows). Everything feels different for the better in Thor’s third solo adventure with the colors brighter, the dialogue quippier, characters more memorable, and scenery more extravagant. Chris Hemsworth plays Thor, the God of Thunder, for the fifth time, this time against his older and stronger sister, the previously banished Hela (Cate Blanchett). While the movie made over $300 million in the U.S., if you missed it, the new 4K Ultra HD/Blu-Ray combo pack is available now!

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok
Blu-ray | Digital
Director: Taika Waititi
Screenwriter: Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle, Christopher Yost
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 130 Minutes
Digital Release date: February 20, 2018
Blu-ray Release Date: March 6, 2018

Despite some of the tonal inconsistencies the Thor franchise has had in the past, Thor: Ragnarok feels like the defining Thor film. Chris Hemsworth returns to reprise his role as the title character he has played since 2011, and the third installment features a brand new first: the addition of a fellow Avenger, the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Director Taika Waititi takes the title character in the direction the franchise should have followed since the very beginning. By embracing the comedic potential and letting Waititi tell the story that he wants, turning Thor: Ragnarok into a hilarious action-filled adventure. While Ragnarok will hit store shelves on March 6, 2018, the digital version has been available since late February.

Along with the film, this home release is chock full of bonus features — the cover Thor, the first ten years of Marvel, Valkyrie and Hela, the source material that inspired the film, and of course, the return of Darryl.

10 Things We Learned At Marvel’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Press Day

Thor: Ragnarok header image

It’s pretty much safe to say that Thor: Ragnarok will be a game changer, as it not only takes the Thor franchise in a new direction but the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as well. And a lot of that is thanks in part to Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige giving director Taika Waititi the freedom he needed to tell the story that he wanted to tell while also being confined to the rules of the MCU. The sequel is a bombastic thrill ride from start to finish and is finally a Thor movie that everyone can enjoy.

We were recently invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to Feige and Waititi, as well as stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Cate Blanchett (Hela), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Karl Urban (Executioner), and Rachel House (Topaz). During the event, we learned about the Taika effect, missing Asgardians, Hulk finally getting some dialogue, what the newcomers have to say about joining the universe, and much more. Read more below about the top ten things we heard at the Thor: Ragnarok press conference.
