mother!, an elevated psychological horror-thriller, supplanted The House at the End of the Street ($12.3 million) to mark the lowest nationwide launch of Jennifer Lawrence's career. The Paramount title, which costed $30 million to produce, came in No. 3 over the weekend behind It and new offering American Assassin. (In a sign that summer is over, all three titles are rated R.)

Jennifer Lawrence is an acclaimed, Academy Award winning actress who was once the highest paid actress in the world two years ago. The 27-year old actress can pretty much do whatever she wants, but it's beginning to look like her fans do not want to see her in horror movies. 2012's House at the End of the Street was panned by critics and is seen as a commercial failure when compared to Lawrence's other work, which still earned a lot of money and was in
Paramount Pictures released the full trailer for Mother online just ahead of its September 15 release date after first releasing a very brief teaser last week.

Andrea Riseborough is also on board with “Little Miss Sunshine” filmmakers Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris directing from a script by Simon Beaufoy.

The movie will follow the competition between tennis pros Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, which captured the zeitgeist back in 1973, when at 29, the No. 2 ranked King beat the 55-year-old retired former Wimbledon champion Riggs. Shue will play Riggs’ wife in the pic, with Carell playing Riggs and Stone playing King.
“Battle of the Sexes” is one of three projects revolving around the infamous tennis match; the other two are HBO and Playtone’s “Proof,” which stars Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti, and Chernin Entertainment and
Sonny Mallhi is probably not a name on anyones horror radar, however Mallhi was the producer on films like The Strangers, House at the End of the Street and the fantastic 2014 Fightfest flick At the Devils Door (aka Home). With Anguish he turns his hand at not only writing (he previously penned the psycho-stalker films The Roommate and Crush) but directing. Now I mention all those other films because Mallhi’s work has been met with various degrees of success, both commercially and critically – so going into Anguish I had no idea what to expect. I did hope for something as stunningly scary as At the Devils Door, what we got is something akin more to The Roommate…
Apparently inspired by a true possession story (though the opening titles talk more about teenagers mental health than
Rings was originally set up as a sequel to 2002's The Ring and 2005's The Ring Two, but it kept getting delayed for several years. In 2010, David Loucka came on board to write the script, when the project was being envisioned as a 3D thriller. F. Javier Gutiérrez came aboard to direct in 2014, and casting started early last year, when Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz came aboard, and the project was re-titled Rings. The studio originally gave the project a March 13, 2015 release date in 2013, which was pushed to November 13, 2015 release date,

We reported in January that Matilda Lutz has signed on as the lead character, but no details about her role were given. Deadline reports that Alex Roe is playing Holt, the boyfriend of Matilda Lutz's character who suddenly becomes distant after he watches the aforementioned tape. Since the earlier report reveals the story will examine how the tape is created, these new details could either mean that the previous report was inaccurate,
