Annabelle: Creation Trailer Released

The new trailer for Annabelle 2 (now titled Annabelle: The Creation) has just been released.

The trailer delivers the typical creepy doll and creepy kid moments one would expect from the sequel to the financially (although not critically) successful film.  The sequel will be directed by David F. Sandberg (who delivered scares to movie goers recently in the form of Lights Out) and is set for release on August 11th, 2017.  The original Annabelle ended up making $84 million dollars domestically and over $256 million dollars world-wide, so a sequel to the film was all but certain. read more

$900 Million Lawsuit Filed Against Warner Bros. Over The Conjuring Franchise

Warner Bros.’ The Conjuring franchise, along with its various sequels and spinoffs, has made over $900 million and counting for the studio. In 1980, Gerald Brittle published a book about the cases of Ed and Lorraine Warren, entitled The Demonologist. Brittle claims that his agreement with The Warrens in 1978 included a “no competing work” provision which is still in effect today. The Hollywood Reporter has published portions of a 335 page amended complaint which Brittle filed against Warner Bros. in Virginia federal court on Wednesday. The complaint seeks $900 million in damages, and it alleges that Warner Bros. knowingly created the franchise under permission by Lorraine Warren when it was actually Brittle’s permission the studio needed to move forward. Furthermore, Brittle claims that the studio can not claim “fair use”  based upon the historical facts of the cases because Brittle alleges that The Warren’s stories are works of fiction. read more
