During the London bombings of World War II, school teachers lead a group of children in evacuation to Crythin Gifford, a remote village outside of the city. When the group takes up residence at the Eel Marsh House, 40 years after Daniel Radcliffe investigated the first haunting, the teachers soon realize they are not alone. The longer they stay in the house, the more the awful past of the residence unravels itself and the evil spirit that lurks around them threatens the well-being of the children. In theaters January 2nd 2015.
The unlikely duo of Hayden Christensen and Adrien Brody star as even unlikelier brothers in what is Armenian director Sarik Andreasyan’s English-language debut. Brody plays the f**k-up who, just out of prison, ends up quickly falling back into the criminal crowd–and this time he’s pulling his brother into his shenanigans. And those shenanigans include a heist. An American Heist. This, of course, raises an interesting question: Is 50 Cent in this? So you’d think! He’s not, though. They got Akon instead.
An official trailer has hit the web for Against the Sun, a WWII combat and survival story about a trio of American navy fliers who are shot down over a vast stretch of the Pacific Ocean. The film stars Garrett Dillahunt (Raising Hope), Tom Felton (Harry Potter’s Malfoy) and Jake Abel (Supernatural) as the crew of a torpedo bomber who must survive in a tiny life raft in the uncharted Pacific, without the aid of helpful items such as food and water. When the sharks start circling the sea gets rough, you can imagine how challenging things get. Will you watch it?
If you’re a fan of District 9, it’s hard not to be excited about director Neill Blomkamp’s next sci-fi film, Chappie.

Chappie is scheduled for a release next year on March 27th. Will you watch it?

Few things are as tense as watching someone needlessly gamble away a fortune. Nothing makes me want to yell at the screen more. Nevertheless, I’m pretty eager to see The Gambler based on this awesome Red Band trailer. There isn’t a lot of sex or violence going down here. It’s basically just John Goodman saying “F**k you” a lot followed by Mark Wahlberg saying “F**k you” just once. I’m not sure if we’re getting dumb Wahlberg, angry Wahlberg, or just flat out serene Wahlberg, but we do get a bald John Goodman, so it’s all good either way. It gets a limited release December 19. Then the rest of us schmucks finally get to see it starting January 2.
Griffon Ramsey makes incredible detailed wooden sculptures. But while many artists who deal with wood use utility knives or chisels as their primary creation tool, Ramsey opts for the much more powerful chainsaw. Ramsey’s latest creation is an awesome sculpture of Groot from the box office megahit “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and in the video Ramsey gives us an intimate look at how she made it. Not only does Griffon use the chainsaw to carve the outline for Groot out of the massive tree she used for the sculpture, she also uses it to make the fine cuts that give Groot skin textures and other small details. Check it out!
