Watch: Unsettling Trailer For Adam Wingard’s Next Horror Film, THE WOODS

Adam Wingard is the director of films like You're Next, The Guest, and segments of the horror anthology VHS movies, so he clearly knows his way around genre films. His newest movie, The Woods, just received its first trailer, and despite its bland title and a reliance on a slowed-down cover of a classic song (a trope that's become increasingly annoying in recent years), the visuals are still unsettling and creepy in all the right ways. If his previous collaborations with writer Simon Barrett are any indication, this is going to be a movie genre fans will absolutely love, and I have a feeling there's a lot more going on underneath the surface than this trailer lets on.

The Woods hits theaters on September 16th.

One of the scariest movies in decades, THE WOODS reinvents horror with a completely fresh and terrifying take on the genre.

Tim Burton Says BEETLEJUICE 2 Not Guaranteed, “Has To Be Right”

Tim Burton is interested in making Beetlejuice 2, but not if it's going to end up being something he doesn't want. The director cleared the air with Collider after months of rumors about a film no one knows is on or off:

"This is the thing, it’s something that I’m interested in, but there’s so many stories [online], dumping Michael Keaton for Johnny Depp and this or that, and I’ve talked to these people and they didn’t wanna hear this so they just made up a story. But the fact of it is I have talked to Michael and I have talked to Winona, I’ve talked to a few people. It’s something that I really would like to do in the right circumstances, but it’s one of those films where it has to be right. It’s not a kind of a movie that cries out [for a sequel], it’s not the Beetlejuice trilogy. So it’s something that if the elements are right—because I do love the character and Michael’s amazing as that character, so yeah we’ll see. But there’s nothing concrete yet."

Sounds like if it happens, it happens. Burton is at a point in his career where he doesn't NEED another film, so why not only do a film if it's only something fans will appreciate? I respect him for having that stance, even if he is in a position of success that grants him that option.

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK Season 4 Trailer: The Difference Between Pain and Suffering

Orange is the New Black is one of Netflix's most consistently great original shows, so it's no surprise that the streaming service renewed the series for three more seasons a few months ago. Season 4 premieres next month, and the first trailer just debuted this morning — and things are looking pretty rough in Litchfield right about now. The trailer doesn't flat-out say it, but it strongly hints that at least one of the main characters isn't going to make it out alive. As always, I'm intrigued to see what happens.

Season 4 premieres on June 17th.

MISFITS Creator Bringing Exorcism Comedy To Netflix

Netflix is teaming up with the creator of Misfits and E4 to bring an exorcism comedy to the streaming platform. THR reports cult superhero comedy creator Howard Overton will be developing Crazy Face, a series that will star Cara Theobold (Downton Abbey) and Susan Wokoma (Chewing Gum).

The series will focus on spirits with unfinished business possessing living people and working through their problems, and humans that can see them and have to stop them. If it's anything like Misfits' first couple of seasons, it's sure to be a fun (but dark) ride!

How Did Jared Leto Get That Laugh For The Joker in SUICIDE SQUAD?

With Suicide Squad’s release day swiftly approaching, the media frenzy for the movie is going to pick up. This just happens to be one of those posts that is trying to keep Suicide Squad in the forefront of your mind.

The word around Hollywood is that Jerad Leto is the personification of Method acting. From extreme weight gain for one role to extreme weight loss for another, the man is fully committed to his craft.

Leto recently divulged another way he got into character for his role as The Joker during an interview with CNBC’s Squawk Box. Here is what he had to say about how he prepared for the role and how he came up with his Joker laugh, which we've heard in the trailers:

“I worked on the laugh walking around the streets of New York and Toronto, and I kinda would walk around the streets and see what laughs would get under people’s skin.
You know when you hear someone laugh at a restaurant? It’s a little jarring. I tried them out. And I kind of got to a place where I would laugh and people are always turning around like, ‘Who is this creepy guy behind me?'”

It seems like there has been a growing concern about the impact that this movie will have, especially with the recent disliking of Batman v Superman and the reshooting that has happened for Suicide Squad. People are concerned with how this movie will turn out. I say don't worry about it. The cast is strong and the trailers have been engaging. I have faith that, if nothing else, this will be a good popcorn flick.

Suicide Squad will hit theaters August 5th.  

First Inspirational Trailer For Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo’s QUEEN OF KATWE

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o and David Oyelowo (who should have an Oscar for his work in Selma) topline an inspirational new Disney film called Queen of Katwe, about a young girl in a Ugandan village who uses her skills at the game of chess as a way to achieve her dreams. It's a shame the movie decided to use dialogue as obvious as "the little one can become the big one," because the metaphors about using chess to overcome obstacles are made exceedingly clear in the rest of the trailer without that on-the-nose explanation; still, this looks like a solid breakout role for newcomer Madina Nalwanga and an inspiring film that's based on a true story.

Queen of Katwe hits theaters on September 23rd.

Check out the trailer below, and then read the super detailed synopsis at the bottom:

“Queen of Katwe” is the colorful true story of a young girl selling corn on the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess, and, as a result of the support she receives from her family and community, is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion. Directed by Mira Nair (“Monsoon Wedding”) from a screenplay by William Wheeler (“The Hoax”) based on the book by Tim Crothers, “Queen of Katwe” is produced by Lydia Dean Pilcher (“The Darjeeling Limited”) and John Carls (“Where the Wild Things Are”) with Will Weiske and Troy Buder serving as executive producers. The film stars Golden Globe® nominee David Oyelowo (“Selma”), Oscar® winner and Tony Award® nominee Lupita Nyong’o (“12 Years a Slave”) and newcomer Madina Nalwanga.
For 10-year-old Phiona Mutesi (Nalwanga) and her family, life in the impoverished slum of Katwe in Kampala, Uganda, is a constant struggle. Her mother, Harriet (Nyong’o), is fiercely determined to take care of her family and works tirelessly selling vegetables in the market to make sure her children are fed and have a roof over their heads. When Phiona meets Robert Katende (Oyelowo), a soccer player turned missionary who teaches local children chess, she is captivated. Chess requires a good deal of concentration, strategic thinking and risk taking, all skills which are applicable in everyday life, and Katende hopes to empower youth with the game. Phiona is impressed by the intelligence and wit the game requires and immediately shows potential. Recognizing Phiona’s natural aptitude for chess and the fighting spirit she’s inherited from her mother, Katende begins to mentor her, but Harriet is reluctant to provide any encouragement, not wanting to see her daughter disappointed. As Phiona begins to succeed in local chess competitions, Katende teaches her to read and write in order to pursue schooling. She quickly advances through the ranks in tournaments, but breaks away from her family to focus on her own life. Her mother eventually realizes that Phiona has a chance to excel and teams up with Katende to help her fulfill her extraordinary potential, escape a life of poverty and save her family.

Season 2 of ATTACK ON TITAN Delayed Until 2017

It appears we won't be seeing new Attack On Titan until 2017. According to the Wikia (translated from original source Mision Tokyo), the news was first uncovered when a Spanish television show tried to get rights to a simulcast for the original run date of fall of this year:

As stated by the source, Selecta Visión contacted Kodansha requesting the rights to simulcast Attack on Titan Season 2 in Spain during this Fall lineup, but they were told by the Japanese company that it will not be airing on this year and that it has been rescheduled to some point of 2017, so the distributor estimates that it will premiere during the anime season that starts in January.

This would make sense as there has been no advertisement for the upcoming season. Hopefully things don't get delayed much longer! We've waited for almost three years for this!

You’ll Never Watch TV The Same Way Again After Watching This Video Essay

What started as a slight annoyance has turned into a full-fledged obsession for TV critic Myles McNutt, who started a hashtag called #EmptyCupAwards in 2014 when he noticed a few actors doing a terrible job of convincingly acting as if their characters' coffee cups were full of liquid. I feel his pain — I've noticed this kind of thing for years as well, but he had the ambition to team up with Slate and create a whole video essay about it. I'm sure a lot of you are going to complain in the comments about how the entire concept of this video is nitpicky, but if this video makes an impact on just a handful of actors and convinces them to step up their cup game, it'll all be worth it. Also: apologies for those of you who will now never be able to watch TV the same way again after seeing this. I know if I saw this video without having noticed the coffee cup problem before, I would notice it every single time moving forward. Check it out:

John Barrowman Rumored To Be in DOCTOR WHO Christmas Special

There's a good chance we'll be seeing Captain Jack Harkness in this year's Doctor Who Christmas special, Cultbox reports. The rumor comes from a video John Barrowman posted to his Facebook:

Coincidentally, Doctor Who begins filming its Christmas special in Cardiff about a week from now! If there's one way to pump up fans for the only episode to air in 2016, this is definitely it! I would love to see Captain Jack back for a prolonged period, but I realize his schedule with Arrow makes that far less likely — although you never know. Who's excited?
