Paramount has delayed Rings no fewer than four times. First it was supposed to open in fall 2015, then spring 2016, then fall 2016. Finally, it was pushed back all the way toFebruary 3, 2017. And the studio would like to reassure you that that date is for real this time. Sure, they’ve done barely any marketing for it a month out from release. But there’s a new poster, and it’s got the release date right there and everything!
The first Rings poster is a pretty simple piece that lays out the rules of the franchise, just in case you’ve forgotten in the fourteen years since the first The Ring hit theaters. It also features Samara, because Paramount knows how much you’ve missed her. Check it out below.
The poster doesn’t really tell us much beyond the fact that this is a Ring movie, but it does set itself up for some easy cracks about how truly terrible Rings must be. (So bad it is going to kill you, apparently.) It doesn’t help that the poster itself looks kind of lazy. It’s not terrible, just kind of generic.
The previously released Rings trailer offers a little more in the way of plot. Maybe too much, as it seems to cover all seven days between watching the “first you watch it” part and the “then you die” part.
If you liked where that came from, there is a whole new Rings trailer coming sometime this week. Because this movie is coming February 3. Really.
A new chapter in the beloved RING horror franchise. A young woman becomes worried about her boyfriend when he explores a dark subculture surrounding a mysterious videotape said to kill the watcher seven days after he has viewed it. She sacrifices herself to save her boyfriend and in doing so makes a horrifying discovery: there is a “movie within the movie” that no one has ever seen before…
“She opens a doorway between hell, so she can devour the innocent. I think she’s coming for me next…” An international trailer has debuted for a horror thriller titled Don’t Knock Twice. Not to be confused with the indie comedy about an improv group, Don’t Think Twice (which we highly recommend seeing), this film is a creepy horror thriller about a demonic witch. The cast includes Katee Sackhoff, Lucy Boynton, Nick Moran, Javier Botet and Jordan Bolger. This looks dark and moody and scary, most definitely, but it also doesn’t look that original or interesting. Just more creepiness lurking in the dark. Give it a look anyway. ›››
“That’s what’s good about losing your memory – there’s so many surprises.” HBO has unveiled a trailer for the documentary Bright Lights, telling the story of the success and fame of Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds. This doc actually premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year with an appearance by Carrie Fisher, but in “light of the recent and unexpected deaths”, has taken on a whole new meaning and purpose – to solidify their legacy. The film is described as an “intimate portrait of Hollywood royalty in all its eccentricity”, featuring extensive verite footage and vintage family films. From the looks of it, this will be an emotional yet inspiring look at the lives of two people who were some of the greatest entertainers in history. ›››
The only horror movie where you can’t say to yourself, “It’s okay! It’s not real!”
“I feel like I’m going crazy!”
“It’s like things you’d never expect are happening everywhere.”
While these lines are commonplace in the horror genre, you may have also uttered them last year.
The hilarious and disturbing 2016: The Movie parody trailer imagines if the year 2016 were, indeed, a horror film. When a couple (Anna Gilcrest and Brian Huther) moves into a new house, things don’t feel quite right. Cue an onslaught of confusing, maddening, and downright horrifying events: a barrage of seemingly never-ending celebrity deaths, exploding phones, a demogogue being elected as U.S. president, and—
“England just left Europe.”
“Nobody knows. They just.…left.”
Friend Dog Studios, the production company responsible for the parody trailer, spared no horror trope. The video even ends with a child singing “Auld Lang Syne” in that ominous death lullaby tune so frequently heard in the genre.
“If you’re that interested in being a good father, why didn’t you try harder before?” Film Movement has debuted an official US trailer for the latest film by acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda, which first premiered at the Cannes, Toronto and London Film Festivals last year. Titled After the Storm, the familial drama is about an estranged father who attempts to reenter the life of his young son, with the moment to reconnect arriving with a typhoon. The cast includes Hiroshi Abe as Ryota, as well as Taiyo Yoshizawa, Kirin Kiki, Yoko Make, and Lily Frankie. One review from Cannes last year says that even fans of Kore-eda “might be taken aback by the supreme subtlety of his latest, achingly beautiful ode to the quiet complexities of family life.” It looks like another honest, heartfelt Kore-eda film about being a parent. ›››
“I think sometimes geniuses are by default lonely and isolated.” HBO has debuted an official trailer for the documentary Becoming Warren Buffett, telling the life story of billionaire Warren Buffett, owner of Berkshire Hathaway, who’s famous for being one of the wealthiest people alive. “With unprecedented access to Buffett’s day-to-day personal life, the film tells the improbable story of how an ambitious, humble, numbers-obsessed boy from Nebraska—who still lives in Omaha—became one of the richest, most-respected men in the world.” I’m curious about this, but as always I wonder if the filmmakers are too close to Buffett, telling his story in a glamorized way and never lifting up the rug to see what might be hiding underneath. ›››
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker, the second chapter based on the worldwide bestselling “Fifty Shades” phenomenon. Expanding upon events set in motion in 2015’s blockbuster film that grossed more than $ 560 million globally, the new installment arrives for Valentine’s Day and invites you to slip into something a shade darker.
When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.
Also returning from Fifty Shades of Grey are Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden, Jennifer Ehle, Victor Rasuk, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Eloise Mumford and Max Martini, who are joined for the first time by Oscar winner Kim Basinger, Bella Heathcote and Eric Johnson.
Fifty Shades Darker is directed by James Foley (Fear, House of Cards) and once again produced by Michael De Luca, Dana Brunetti and Marcus Viscidi, alongside E L James, the creator of the culture-spanning blockbuster series. The screenplay is by Niall Leonard, based on the novel by James.
“This is my life! I had to fight for this…” A trailer has debtued for an indie drama adapted from a stage play called “Blackbird”. The film is titled Una and premiered at the Telluride & Toronto Film Festivals last year to mixed reviews. Rooney Mara stars as a troubled young woman who comes to a man’s work to confront him about their past, and things get a little crazy. Ben Mendelsohn also stars, and the cast includes Riz Ahmed in a small role, as well as Tobias Menzies and Tara Fitzgerald. While some critics flipped for this film, I found it utterly boring, and it feels way too much like a stage play and not at all like a film (taking place mostly in one drab location). It doesn’t work well as a film, but that’s just my own take. Have a look. ›››
During yesterday’s college football playoff games, Disney•Pixar teased that a new Cars 3 trailer will air during the college football national championship game between Alabama and Clemson on Monday, January 9 on ESPN at 8 pm/ET. You can watch a recorded tease for the new Cars 3 trailer below.
Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez, with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!
Disney•Pixar‘s Cars 3 will feature the return of Owen Wilson as the voice of Lightning McQueen, along with Larry the Cable Guy as Mater, Bonnie Hunt as Sally Carrera, and Cheech Marin as Ramone.
Cars 3 is directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist for Cars and Cars 2) and produced by Kevin Reher (A Bug’s Life, La Luna short). The film will race into theaters on June 16, 2017.
The first Cars, directed by John Lasseter, earned $ 461.9 million worldwide in 2006, and Cars 2 topped that with $ 559.8 million globally in 2011.
