Dark Powers Called Upon in Universal's 'Ouija' Horror First Trailer

Ouija

The trailer has been playing in theaters for nearly a month now, and with the release of The Purge: Anarchy coming this weekend, Universal Pictures has finally decided to unleash the trailer for their next horror venture Ouija. Inspired by the creepy, supernatural "board game" of the same name, the film follows a group of friends who get caught up in the dark powers of this mystical board, forcing each of them to confront unimaginable horrors. Actually, by the looks of this trailer, the horrors are pretty basic, and don't really offer anything in the vein of a promising story. It just hits every cliche in the book pretty hard. Watch!

Keira Knightley Buys Chloe Grace Moretz Beer in Trailer for 'Laggies'

Laggies

Director Lynn Shelton brought her latest film Laggies to the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and now the film is hitting theaters this fall. It's pretty standard indie fare with Keira Knightley playing a twentysomething struggling with adulthood, lacking motivation while figuring out the next step of her life. But this one has a great supporting cast with Chloe Grace Moretz turning in another promising performance along with Sam Rockwell (The Way Way Back) and Mark Webber (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World). This doesn't look to break new ground, but with this caliber of cast, it really has charm. Watch it!

Michael Rooker as Yondu Gets a 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Poster

Guardians of the Galaxy

Not too long ago, an image teased the silhouette of Michael Rooker as Yondu, an important character from the comic books on which the forthcoming Marvel Studios film Guardians of the Galaxy is based. Keen eyes might have noticed a quick shot of the blue-skinned character in the extended trailer that debuted last week, but now everyone can get a really good look at the character since director James Gunn has just revealed a new character poster featuring the man himself holding an artifact that we've seen Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) handling in pretty much all the trailers. Does it have something to do with the Infinity Stones?

First Look: Ultron & Army Revealed in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron'

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

We're bound to get a huge first look at The Avengers: Age of Ultron next week at Comic-Con in San Diego, but until then we have our first look at the titular villain and his robot army thanks to the new cover of Entertainment Weekly. James Spader plays the bad buy, but there's no site of him since Ulton just looks like an alien version of Iron Man. Speaking of which, the cover also features a glimpse at a new suit for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and also his patriotic partner Captain America (Chris Evans). Expect some more images to surface soon and plenty more news tom come out of Comic-Con next week. Look now!

'Horns' with Daniel Radcliffe Gets New Poster & Halloween Release

Horns

Following the release of the teaser trailer earlier this week, word comes from ComingSoon that Alexandre Aja's adaptation of Horns led by Harry Potter franchise star Daniel Radcliffe will hit theaters in the United States on October 31st. That was the same date for the film's debut in the United Kingdom, but it wasn't clear until now if that release would be the same here as well. Along with that news comes a cool new teaser poster, one that's much better than the newspaper headline teaser from across the pond. It doesn't even use Radcliffe's face this time, and it's more than a little ominous with that dark, horned figure. Hopefully we'll have more to say about the film after its Comic-Con panel next week in San Diego. Look!

Valiant Comics is Bringing 'Archer & Armstrong' to the Big Screen

Archer & Armstrong

While Marvel and DC Comics are the top contenders in comic book movies, there are still some lesser known, but beloved, comic book titles that make their way to theaters every now and then. Now one more will make the journey as Valiant Comics has announced that they're adapting their series Archer & Armstrong to film. THR reports the comic book company commissioned a script themselves with friend of the site, BenDavid Grabinski, landing the job of writing it.

Ron Howard Set to Direct Authorized Documentary on The Beatles

The Beatles

Hot on the heels of the 50th anniversary re-release of the musical classic A Hard Day's Night, featuring the iconic British import The Beatles, it turns out The Fab Four have a new film on the way as well. Apple Corps Ltd, White Horse Pictures and Imagine Entertainment announced in a press release that they are teaming up to produce a documentary about the early party of The Beatles career. More specifically, it will focus on the touring years following the rock group from their early days in the Cavern Club in Liverpool to shows in Hamburg and all the way to their last public concert in Candlestick Park, San Francisco, in 1966.

Watch: Two More Extended TV Spots for 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

Guardians of the Galaxy

"I like your knife, I'm keeping it." While we've gotten a pretty big taste of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) with the latest trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, both Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana) have been seen but barely heard from. That all changes with a new TV spot that explains both of their connections to the villain Ronan (Lee Pace), and also shows them kicking some ass. Meanwhile, another TV spot briefly shows us a young Peter Quill when he was taken from Earth as a kid. The more we see of this flick, the more excited we get for August. Watch!

Christian Bale May Play Travis McGee in 'The Deep Blue Good-By'

The Deep Blue Good-by

After spending years in development, it seems the adaptation of The Deep Blue Good-By, featuring John D. MacDonald's recurring character Travis McGee, is finally making progress. The Wolverine director James Mangold boarded the film this past spring, after directors like Paul Greengrass and Oliver Stone flirted with the project and Leonardo DiCaprio wanted to star. But now a new name might end up with the lead role as Variety reports Out of the Furnace and American Hustle star Christian Bale is in early talks to play the self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game who appears in 21 books.

Disney's 'Jungle Book' Casts Mowgli as Only On-Screen Actor in Film

The Jungle Book / Neel Sethi

The cast of Disney's new live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book has filled out rather nicely with Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o and Ben Kingsley all taking roles. However, all those talents are voicing the animals in the Rudyard Kipling tale, and we've been waiting to see who would end up taking the lead role of the young boy Mowgli, who is raised by the jungle around him. Now Disney has announced that 10-year old Neel Sethi will make his acting debut in the film directed by Jon Favreau after being picked out of thousands of auditions from across the United States, New Zealand, London, Canada and India. Read on!

Chloe Grace Moretz to Lead English Voice Cast for 'Princess Kaguya'

Princess Kaguya

As much as I love Studio Ghibli, I'm not the biggest fan of these kind of casting updates. I prefer the original Japanese voice cast with subtitles, but as always it's hard to sell the film here in the US without dubbed English voices. GKids has unveiled the cast for the English language version of Ghibli's The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, directed by Isao Takahata, his first film in fourteen years. Providing the lead voice will be Chloë Grace Moretz, who is already everywhere and in every movie from Cannes to The Equalizer. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya adapts a classic story about a tiny girl found inside a shining stalk of bamboo.

Beyond Spectacular: Experiencing '2001' in 70mm; 'Interstellar' is Next

2001 in 70mm Ticket

"This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it." This past weekend, at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, New York City, I experienced the spectacular - Stanley Kubrick's seminal sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey projected in 70mm. The film first hit theaters in 1968, but is touring again as a 70mm restored version, which first hit in 2001/2002. The theater was sold out, every seat filled, the audience awe-struck in total silence for most of the entire movie. Words cannot really describe this kind of cinematic event, as it is truly an experience, one that will "dominate and overwhelm the viewer", as Ebert wrote in one of his posts on seeing 2001 in 70mm. It is that enveloping, but that's what makes it awesome.
