deliver-us-from-evil

From the director of Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose (which BTW are in the Top 10 scariest movies for me personally) comes a terrifying new thriller called Deliver Us From Evil – and it’s opening in theatres this weekend.

In the film, NY police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana) investigates a series of crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest, schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the possessions that are terrorizing their city. According to the poster and the trailer, the film is inspired by the actual accounts of an NYPD sargeant. These accounts were revealed in the 2001 book the former NYPD officer wrote with Lisa Collier Cool titled Beware the Night. In the book, Sarchie “discloses for the first time his investigation into incredible true crimes (and) inhuman evil that were never explained, solved, or understood except by Sarchie and his partner,” according to the publisher.

This is one of of two very scary looking films I’m looking forward to checking out this year. The other one is called The Green Inferno, directed by Eli Roth and starring a friend of mine, Magda Apanowicz. It looks freaking terrifying. Anyway, check out the trailer for Deliver Us From Evil below and/or check it out in theatre this weekend.

It’s not exactly The Big Chill, but About Alex certainly reminds me of that classic 80s film. Both movies feature a group of friends reuniting for a fun weekend getaway but drama arises when things get real.

Jason Ritter plays a man who recently attempted suicide. His friends consisting of Max Greenfield, Maggie Grace, Aubrey Plaza, Max Minghella, Nate Parker and Jane Levy rally together to cheer up their friend. Naturally, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns. Drama ensues when liquor, drugs and risotto are in the mix. Expect plenty of laughs, tears and awkward situations.

The film debuted at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. Writer and director Jesse Zwick is makes his directorial debut. About Alex hits theaters August 8. Check out the trailer below.

Official Synopsis

In ABOUT ALEX, a circle of twenty-something friends reunite for a weekend away after one of them suffers an emotional breakdown. Despite the group’s best efforts to keep it light and enjoy themselves, a tinderbox of old jealousies, unrequited love, and widening political differences leads to an explosion that, coupled with the flammable combination of drugs, wine, and risotto, cannot be contained. An honest appraisal of adult friendship for our current social media moment, ABOUT ALEX is a lighthearted look at the struggles of a generation that has it all – and wants more.

think-like-a-man-too

Kevin Hart along with his boys (and girls) handily beat Clint Eastwood’s singing Jersey Boys this weekend at the box office. Think Like A Man Too doubled what the musical film generated. Though the sequel’s weekend take of $30 million fell a little short of its predecessor ($33.5 million), it’s still a major win for Sony. This makes it two weeks in a row at number one for the studio (22 Jump Street topped last week). With strong word-of-mouth and A- CinemaScore rating, expect Think Like A Man Too to impress in the coming weeks.

Broadway hit musical adaptations are a tricky thing. Not all can become box office smashes like Chicago, Mamma Mia and Dreamgirls. Despite featuring three members from the original Tony-winning production, the film only squeezed out $13.5 million. With practically no buzz entering the weekend and no major marquee names, that number isn’t all that surprising. The film also skewed much older than most films with 71 percent of the audience over the age of 50 and 84 percent over the age of 35. Though critics were mixed about the film, moviegoers gave it an A- CinemaScore. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.

Meryl Streep To Play Another Legendary Icon

Meryl Streep just can’t get enough of playing real people. She’s previously portrayed Julia Child and Margaret Thatcher on the big screen. The latter earned the 65-year-old legend another Oscar statue. One could also argue that her Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada could qualify as well given that it was loosely based on Vogue’s Anna Wintour. She’s prepping to play another legendary icon. Find out who below.

Typically a film with a January release date doesn’t exactly scream blockbuster. I liken it to a Friday night timeslot. Is it the studio’s lack of confidence in the film’s prospects as to why it hits theaters January 15, 2015, or simply just to take advantage of the lucrative Martin Luther holiday long weekend. Either way, I have to say The Wedding Ringer doesn’t look half bad.

Kevin Hart plays a best man for hire who’ll stand alongside any groom lacking friends to fill up the bridal party. Groom-to-be Josh Gad is in that exact predicament and needs to find seven guys to match his bride Kaley Cuoco’s side. Ken Howard, Mimi Rogers, Cloris Leachman and Alan Ritchson round out the cast. Check out The Wedding Ringer trailer below.

If you liked The Blindside, you’re going to love this. The Good Lie is another heartwarming film based on a true story, coincidentally brought to us by the same producers as Sandra Bullock’s football drama.

Taking the part of the straight-talking woman set to make things right is Reese Witherspoon. She takes in four young Sudanese refugees (known as Lost Boys of Sudan) who win a lottery for relocation to the United States. House of CardsCorey Stoll also appears in the film.

The Good Lie was shot in Atlanta, Georgia. If you recall, this is the project Reese was shooting when she was infamously caught on film on a drunken tirade towards a police officer. The Philippe Falardeau-directed film hits theaters on October 2. Check out the trailer below.

The Expendables 3 Premiere First Full Length Trailer

The first one was surprisingly entertaining with its nod to vintage vigilante films. The sequel sucked major balls. Hopefully, the franchise finishes its trilogy with a bang. The first two-minute trailer is already a massive improvement over the last film.

Joining the geriatric mercenaries for the third lap are Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Kellan Lutz and Kelsey Grammer. They join returning vigilantes Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Arnold Schwarzenegger and naturally Sly Stallone.

Bruce Willis was set to return but was booted for asking for too much money ($4 million) for four days of shooting. Stallone tweeted, “GREEDY AND LAZY . . . A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE.”

The Expendables 3 will be released on August 15, 2014. Patrick Hughes steps in to direct the latest installment, replacing Stallone and Simon West who helmed the first and second film respectively. Check out the first trailer below.

Anna Kendrick Is A Troll

No, not of the heinous variety that live under a bridge. Rather, it’s those colorful big haired dolls popular with kids during the 60s and 90s.

DreamWorks Animations announced Anna Kendrick will appear in their upcoming musical Trolls playing the “relentlessly upbeat princess” Poppy. Mike Mitchell (Shrek Forever After) is directing the film set to hit theaters November 4, 2016.

“Anna has proven herself to be a brilliant actress with an amazing singing voice,” Mitchell said. “She’ll inject Poppy with the exact mix of spirit, sass and song that will no doubt give a whole new life to the iconic Troll dolls.”

The 28-year-old actress has certainly proven she’s got the pipes in Pitch Perfect. She followed that up with a wonderfully amusing stint on Saturday Night Live, singing in several skits. Upcoming music-themed projects include Disney’s musical Into The Woods and the highly-anticipated Pitch Perfect sequel.

Were you a Troll doll collector? Excited Kendrick is part of this project? Weigh in below.
