Back in 2012, ‘The Woman in Black,’ starring Daniel Radcliffe and directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake), became the highest grossing British horror film of the past 20 years – grossing over $33 million in the UK and over $125 million worldwide. In ‘The Woman in Black: Angels Of Death,’ seized by the government during World War II, the sudden arrival of a group of evacuated children at Eel Marsh House awakens its darkest inhabitant. Tom Harper directs the film, which hits cinemas on January 1st, 2015. Harper’s also got a stellar movie called ‘War Book’ coming out, so look out for that next year.
ABC and Marvel have announced that the first teaser trailer for Joss Whedon’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ will debut with next Tuesday’s ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ episode. This news follows last week’s revelation that Robert Downey Jr. would be starring in ‘Captain America 3,’ with an eye for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to tackle the “Civil War” comicbook storyline. ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ airs on Tuesday at 9:00pm ET/PT (2:00am UK time) on ABC.
In the ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ when Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
This new promo video has landed online for Justin Simien’s ‘Dear White People,’ which premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival to stellar reviews and a special jury award for breakthrough talent. Starring Tessa Thompson, Tyler James Williams, Kyle Gallner, Teyonah Parris, Brandon Bell, Malcolm Barrett, Brittany Curran, Justin Dobies, Marque Richardson, Dennis Haysbert and Peter Syversten, ‘Dear White People’ follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular “African American” themed party thrown by white students.
With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in “post-racial” America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world. In the US, ‘Dear White People’ opened in select cities last Friday and will expand nationwide on October 24th. I got to see the film recently and I thought it was absolutely FANTASTIC. Fingers crossed there’s word on a wide UK release date shortly (there’s certainly a tonne of interest, as the film’s recent screenings at the London Film Festival sold out before they even went on sale).
