‘Annabelle: Creation’ Scares up a Number One Debut at the Box Office

The summer of 2017 has been full of big budget disappointments and smaller films that were not able to capture moviegoer’s interests (and more importantly, ticket purchases).

And when it come to horror films, unlike 2016’s bumper crop of summer hits such as Lights Out, The Conjuring Two, and Don’t Breathe, no genre picture was able to get horror fans into the theater…until now.

Annabelle: Creation easily won the weekend box office with an estimated $36 million dollar take and is poised for a profitable run at the box office, with no worthy competition until the release of Stephen King’s It on September 8th. read more

New Image of Pennywise from Stephen King’s IT Released

Horror fans worldwide are chomping at the bit, eagerly awaiting original stills (or how about a trailer???) for the new cinematic adaptation of Stephen King’s IT.  Though due to hit movie screens in 2017, the release of production imagery or details have been held to a deliberate pace in order to build up as much anticipation as humanly possible.  Luckily, the folks over at Empire Magazine are here to the rescue.

In the latest issue of the pop culture publication, a brand-new image of our favorite demonic clown Pennywise will be unleashed upon the masses (see below).  You can view the image on the film’s Facebook page as well, as Pennywise (portrayed by Bill Skarsgard) peers out from the depths of a sewer drain….ready to (presumably) rip poor Georgie’s arm off in an iconic scene from the best-selling horror novel. read more

New Image of Pennywise the Clown Released Ahead of IT Premiere

Pure evil continues to have a new face.  Entertainment Weekly has released another photo of the original wicked clown Pennywise, demonic star of the upcoming re-adaptation of Stephen King’s brilliant novel IT.  In the latest promo shot (seen below), the child-killer is peering out from the inside of a large drain pipe.  As we all know, the sewers and underground drainage systems are where Pennywise waits in the shadows, poised to pounce on its unsuspecting victims.

Anticipation is high for the classic novel remake, following up on the 1990 television mini-series.  Bill Skarsgard (Hemlock Grove) will portray the demon clown, which he promises will be a different take on the character than the critically-acclaimed version made famous by Tim Curry.  “Tim Curry’s performance was truly great, but it’s important for me to do something different because of that,” Skarsgard says. “I’ll never be able to make a Tim Curry performance as good as Tim Curry.” read more
