‘The Blackcoat’s Daughter’ Trailer: Starring the Girl From ‘Mad Men,’ the Girl From ‘Sing Street,’ and the Devil, Probably

the blackcoat's daughter trailer

I’ve been looking forward to seeing The Blackcoat’s Daughter ever since I missed it during Fantastic Fest 2015, back when it was still going by its original title, February. Oz Perkins‘ directorial debut inspired a great deal of conversation throughout the festival, with audiences split over whether or not it was a gem or…let’s just say “not a gem.” Any film that can stir up that divide people and get them talking is a must-see.

After a lengthy delay, the film is set to arrive soon and an atmospheric new trailer has shown up.

The trailer is light on plot but heavy on mood, with Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka and Sing Street‘s Lucy Boynton playing girls who are left alone at their prep school over winter break when their parents never show up. And then awful things start to happen, things involving evil forces and “brutal bloody violence,” as the MPAA warning promises us. Emma Roberts is also on hand, playing a character heading toward the school for reasons unknown.

Here’s The Blackcoat’s Daughter trailer:

It’s an extremely effective trailer, reminding me very much of last year’s incredible The Witch (and if it’s half as good, we’re in for something cool). For a taste of what to expect, Perkins’ second film, I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, is currently streaming on Netflix.

The Blackcoat’s Daughter will premiere exclusively on DirecTV on February 16 before A24 releases it in theaters on March 31. Here’s the official synopsis:

A deeply atmospheric and terrifying new horror film, THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER centers on Kat (Kiernan Shipka) and Rose (Lucy Boynton), two girls who are left alone at their prep school Bramford over winter break when their parents mysteriously fail to pick them up.  While the girls experience increasingly strange and creepy occurrences at the isolated school, we cross cut to another story—that of Joan (Emma Roberts), a troubled young woman on the road, who, for unknown reasons, is determined to get to Bramford as fast as she can. As Joan gets closer to the school, Kat becomes plagued by progressively intense and horrifying visions, with Rose doing her best to help her new friend as she slips further and further into the grasp of an unseen evil force.  The movie suspensefully builds to the moment when the two stories will finally intersect, setting the stage for a shocking and unforgettable climax.

A forgotten 1986 novel predicted a terrible Trump-like president

Https%3a%2f%2fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fcard%2fimage%2f371811%2f1f58690a-cafa-4dcd-ad4f-2481a8936756

An erratic president causes unprecedented chaos in his first two weeks in office. He lashes out at Australia, threatens to invade Mexico, imposes an anti-terrorism travel ban that makes terrorism more likely, and shoots off angry missives at the New York Times when he should be coordinating a military raid from the situation room. 

That’s all Donald Trump. What, did you think I was going to tell you behavior this bad was predicted in a 1986 satirical novel? 

Yes, there are plenty of Trumpian echoes in the book in question — Christopher Buckley’s forgotten bestseller, appropriately named The White House Mess. But for the most part, what it shows us is how far below regular satire this presidency has sunk.  Read more…

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the Season 2 finale of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, titled “Can Josh Take a Leap of Faith?”

There are a lot of twists and turns in the final episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 2.

But showrunners Rachel Bloom (who also stars as Rebecca Bunch) and Aline Brosh McKenna always knew exactly what line to end with:

“Josh Chan must be destroyed.”

That’s right, after two seasons of obsessing over Josh Chan — aka the reason she moved to West Covina, California — Rebecca Bunch has had a change of heart. Why? Josh Chan left her at the altar for … God? (He’s going to become a priest.) Read more…

Apple Knocks 1/3 Off Final Cut Pro X for Students

Apple just announced a new academic bundle for $ 199 that includes Final Cut Pro X, with Logic, Motion, Compressor and MainStage all thrown in to boot.

Final Cut Pro X has always had a great price, at just $ 299 for the powerful software. As a bonus, there has been no upgrade price since it came out in 2011; if you paid $ 299 for it the month it came out, your license is still good six years later for the most current version, which works out to only $ 50/year, or around $ 4.50/month. There is no guarantee that the no-fee upgrade policy will continue (unlike a software like Resolve, where a dongle purchase comes with upgrades guaranteed), but so far it’s held up and proven to be a great investment for its users.

Google Docs: A modern tool of powerful resistance in Trump’s America

Https%3a%2f%2fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fcard%2fimage%2f372093%2ff4823837-e51e-4165-91a5-d47795ca4529

During a time of impassioned protests, controversial policies, and steadfast political resistance, the people of Trump’s America and those standing in solidarity across the globe are coming together in unique ways to make a difference.

The stark change in political tides has reignited an otherwise subdued form of communication amongst the many scrambling to organize, and fighting to stay informed: the sharing of Google Docs.

Though the simple word processing tool—which allows users to easily create, edit and share documents online—has been used since 2010 for everything from students compiling group projects to scientists cataloguing what animals fart, the personal, direct platform for collaboration has become a perfect way for likeminded individuals to connect about political issues across the country.
