See the new poster for horror film 'The Babadook'

babadook

In the new, much-buzzed-about horror film The Babadook, a children’s book comes to life and turns the life of single mother Amelia (Essie Davis) into a living hell. Given that premise, we thought twice about debuting the poster for the film, which opens in cinemas Nov. 28, lest a similar fate befall us here at EW Towers.

But, hey, you only live (and die!) once.

From 'Psycho' to 'Gone Girl': the best director/composer teams

REZNOR-ROSS.jpg

With this weekend’s release of Gone Girl, director David Fincher has once again showcased the unsettling sounds of award-winning composers Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor (above). Ever since 2010’s The Social Network, the duo have become a fixture of Fincher’s work. The duo’s deceptively minimal sound, with subtle motifs barely hiding cold electronic undercurrents, is remarkably well-suited for Fincher’s trademark visual aesthetic, in which every smile and doorway can take on an air of menace if the camera lingers long enough. While he has worked with a number of composers before—most notably Howard Shore—Fincher has found a sonic soulmate in Ross and Reznor’s scoring.

But what about the other great director/composer relationships in Hollywood history? What other composers have had their music strongly associated with a director’s work, so much so that you can’t picture a film without hearing the score?  READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'Annabelle' sneaks ahead of 'Gone Girl'

Annabelle and Gone Girl will exceed expectations as both head for a possible $30+ million showing this weekend.

Though that terrifying doll from The Conjuring took first place on Friday with an estimated $15.5 million, it’s likely that David Fincher’s well-regarded adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestseller will inch ahead when the weekend totals are tallied. Poorly reviewed horror movies do not age well, even across a single weekend. Interestingly, audiences gave both Annabelle and Gone Girl a B CinemaScore, suggesting that neither lived up to their expectations.

Box office preview: Will 'Gone Girl' triumph over 'Annabelle'?

It’s a battle of the R-rated thrillers at the box office this week, and though both Gone Girl and Annabelle are tracking similarly, it looks like David Fincher’s literary adaptation may have an edge in both the short and long term.

The Christian-themed action pic Left Behind also opens in under 2,000 theaters, and, as with most faith-based releases, its success or failure is somewhat of a wildcard. Industry tracking can never seem to get a solid handle on the Christian market.

Here’s how things might play out.

Dan Harmon crowd surfs in exclusive clip from 'Harmontown'

Community creator Dan Harmon is a comedy heavyweight. He’s also something of an actual heavyweight. (I write this as a man who could stand to lose a pound or 20 myself.) But did that stop the mercurial, mirth-creating madman attempting to crowd surf when he took his Harmontown podcast on the road in early 2013? It most certainly did not, as the exclusive clip below from the tour-documenting, and utterly fascinating, new film Harmontown very much makes clear.

Joan Allen gives motherly advice in clip from Stephen King's 'A Good Marriage'

Stephen King may be one of our most prolific writers, but he tends to let others get the ol’ finger blisters when it comes to adapting his tales for the big screen. One exception? The forthcoming, Peter Askin-directed A Good Marriage, for which Uncle Stevie did decide to pen the screenplay version of his novella.

Kevin Smith has been discussing the possibility of Clerks 3 for awhile now, and though the film has had trouble finding a home, recent comments from Smith suggest it may finally see the light of day. And it’s all thanks to Smith’s latest film, Tusk.

Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way and Langley Park eye 'American Wolf'

No, American Wolf is not a follow-up to The Wolf of Wall Street. It’s actually a tale of the female alpha wolf (the “06”) who’d captivated the scientific and tourist community only to be shot by a hunter outside of Yellowstone National Park in 2012, and Leonardo DiCaprio’s production banner Appian Way is teaming up with Kevin McCormick’s Langley Park to secure the film rights, sources tell EW. The deal is not closed yet, though.

Nate Blakeslee, a Senior Editor at Texas Monthly, sold his book proposal for the story earlier this week for a reported seven-figures. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it inspired some enthusiastic bidding between various production companies, including New Regency and ImageMovers.

The story will focus on the impact Wolf 832F, or 06 (called that because she was born in 2006), had on the humans around her, the business of wolf-watching at Yellowstone, and the public outrage at the hunter, whom Blakeslee was able to track down.

Denzel Washington, Antoine Fuqua answer readers' 'Equalizer' questions

Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington’s revival of The Equalizer is poised to rule the box office this weekend. The film is based on the 1980s television series of the same name—and favorite show of Max Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street—but Fuqua and Washington have put a modern twist on the classic thriller.
