'It' Remains #1 with $60M Second Weekend, Floating to September Record
After just eight days in release, WB and New Line's It became the highest grossing September release of all-time, two days later it added another $40 million to that total for an impressive $60 million second weekend and nearly $220 million in just ten days. The horror film's performance vastly overshadowed the weekend's two new wide releases that saw Lionsgate and CBS Films's American Assassin deliver respectable results in second place while Paramount's release of Darren Aronofsky's mother! suffered greatly, finishing in third and receiving a disastrous "F" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. With an estimated $60 million this weekend, WB and New Line's It brought its domestic cume to $218.7 million after just ten days in release. As already mentioned, that makes it the largest September release ever, topping 1986's Crocodile Dundee ($174.8m). That number, of course, is not adjusted for inflation. Adjusted for inflation, however, It still finishes within the top

Audiences Hate Jennifer Lawrence's New Movie Mother!

  • MovieWeb
Audiences Hate Jennifer Lawrence's New Movie Mother!
Moviegoers are having very negative reactions to Jennifer Lawrence's latest movie, Mother!, according to CinemaScore, which currently has the movie at an F rating. The Darren Aronofsky directed movie has been getting trashed by audiences, but praised by critics, leading to a huge divide between audience and critic with the polarized reviews. Could it be that moviegoers are beginning a backlash against Jennifer Lawrence?

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

Watch Jennifer Lawrence in Exceptionally Creepy First 'mother! Trailer

  • Movies.com
Released soon after Jennifer Lawrence broke out big in The Hunger Games, House at the End of the Street is the only movie that the actress has done that could be described as a horror movie. But that's about to change. Teased as a psychological thriller, mother! looks to be a full-blown horror movie. Darren Aronofsky, who wrote and directed, previously crafted the exceptional psychological drama Black Swan, which earned Natalie Portman an Academy Award for her sterling performance. This time around, he pairs Lawrence with Javier Bardem as a couple living in a remote location. When uninvited guests Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer arrive, things soon turn incredibly creepy.

Jennifer Lawrence Goes Crazy in Creepy Mother! Trailer

Jennifer Lawrence Goes Crazy in Creepy Mother! Trailer
Another horror movie may have just entered the awards season discussion. Director Darren Aronofsky, who is easily one of the most respected filmmakers working in the industry today, has assembled an all star cast for a brand new horror/thriller that looks to be a couple of cuts above what one usually expects from genre filmmaking. Now, the first full trailer for Mother! has arrived online, giving us a better sense of what to expect from this mysterious potential Oscar contender.

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. This trailer still doesn't give us much of what to expect in terms of story as it looks like Darren Aronofsky wants the mystery to unfold for the viewer. We do get that there is a couple living in a seemingly remote area in

Film Review: Anguish

  • CineVue
★★★★☆ The previous credits of Sonny Mallhi, directing for the first time with Anguish, may not have inspired much confidence. Co-producing the Oldboy remake and exec-producing The House at the End of the Street - the one Jennifer Lawrence film people are prepared to forget - will do that. Thankfully, Anguish is accomplished enough to make you excited for whatever Mallhi works on next. Having premièred in the UK at Glasgow's FrightFest in February, the film is about two disaffected Illinois teenagers with a paranormal link. Lucy (who insists on being called Lucinda) is the one tragically killed by a truck, and Tess (Ryan Simpkins) is the one moving to the same town, bearing a history of severe anxiety problems.

Shue will play Riggs’ wife in the pic, with Carell playing Riggs and Stone playing King.

Glasgow Frightfest: ‘Anguish’ Review

Stars: Ryan Simpkins, Annika Marks, Karina Logue, | Written and Directed by Sonny Mallhi

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

'The Ring' Sequel 'Rings' Gets a New Halloween Release Date
The ever-changing release date saga of Paramount's Rings has added yet another chapter, with the studio pushing the horror sequel back once again, although this change may be for the best. Deadline reports that the studio has pushed Rings from April 1 to the horror-friendly date of October 28. The studio also moved up Richard Linklater's comedy Everybody Wants Some from April 15 up to April 1.

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 Guti&#233rrez 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,

Review: Anguish

There a huge amount of “been there, done that” with the majority of films dealing with possession and/or possible exorcisms. By now, there are very few things that seem original within the subgenre and it takes a whole lot for a film to really stand out. Enter Sonny Mallhi, one of the producers behind such films as The Strangers, The House At The End Of The Street and At The Devil’S Door (just to name a few). While doing a hell of a job developing and producing films, it’s his directorial debut, Anguish, that really offers that breath of fresh air, opting not to follow traditional cliches’ within the genre and instead, giving horror fans a film that pulls you close and gives you quite the frightening experience.

There’s a very intense opening to Anguish, one that makes you as a viewer interested in where the story is going,

'Rings' Will Bring Back a Character from 'The Ring'
Last week, we reported that production is under way on Paramount Pictures' Rings, which is set 13 years after the 2002 thriller The Ring. There isn't much we know about the story so far, except that it centers on a young girl (Matilda Lutzz), whose boyfriend Holt (Alex Roe) watches the infamous VHS tape, which causes each person to be killed seven days after watching it. Aimee Teegarden has also recently joined the cast, but no details were given for her character. Today we have new details that could provide some Spoilers if proven to be true, so read on at your own risk.

Shock Till You Drop is reporting that an adult version of Aidan Keller, the character portrayed by David Dorfman in The Ring and the 2005 sequel The Ring Two, will appear in Rings, although it isn't known how large or small his role may be. It isn't known if David Dorfman himself,

'Ring' Prequel 'Rings' Casts Alex Roe as the Male Lead
British actor Alex Roe has signed on to play the male lead in Paramount's Rings, which we reported last week will be a prequel to the studio's 2002 thriller The Ring. While that report has yet to be confirmed, it claimed that this new story will be set several years before The Ring, focusing on the origin of Samara's reign of terror and how the mysterious video tape was created. In The Ring, anyone who watches this VHS tape dies seven days later.

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,
