New Footage Debuts from Goosebumps in New International Trailer

Goosebumps_Poster(PCM) Sony Pictures India released a new international trailer for director Rob Letterman’s adaptation of Goosebumps, debuting new footage and monsters from the October 16th release.

Based on R.L. Stine’s beloved series of children’s horror fiction novellas, Goosebumps is directed by Gulliver’s Travels and Shark Tale director Rob Letterman and comes from the story by Scott Alexander (1408, Big Eyes) & Larry Karaszewski (1408, Ed Wood) with the screenplay by Darren Lemke (Jack the Giant Slayer, Shrek Forever After).

Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series.

It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.

Goosebumps is based on the also stars Amy Ryan, Ryan Lee, and Jillian Bell and will open in theaters nationwide October 16, 2015.

The new banner features Katniss Everdeen standing atop a toppled statue of President Snow, fires still burning around it while the rebel fighters of District 13 strike menacing poses in their all-black get-ups.

Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off mission, using the unit from District 13 – and risking their lives – to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow increasingly obsessed with destroying her, the mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

A24 Released the First Trailer for Indie Horror The Witch and it is Disturbing

(PCM) A24 released the first trailer for The Witch, and it is one disturbing ride.

Few things have the power to induce spine-tingling chills like the idea of a super-religious family living on the edge of the woods in 17th Century New England, especially with the addition of shape-shifting goats, black magic, a sinister kidnapping, and rampant paranoia.

Writer-director Robert Eggers packs all of these elements into his first feature-length film, The Witch, being distributed by A24 nationwide after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

Described as “A New-England folktale,” The Witch explores the downfall of a 17th century family, ostracized from their colonial neighbors and forced to lead life on the edge of the woods, rumored to be overrun with witches, away from the rest of civilization. After the youngest in the family, a newborn, is kidnapped right from under the family’s nose, tensions ride and paranoia turns to action as the family reaches the brink of sanity.  With teenage daughter Thomasin, played by newcomer Anya Taylor-Joy,  under suspicion of witchcraft, the family’s bonds are tested, and tested hard.

The Witch was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and Robert Eggers won the Directing Award for demonstrating “a consistent and excellently rendered vision, creating a story that was hauntingly detailed as it was masterfully executed,” and is currently sporting a strong rating of 89% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Rodrigo Perez praised The Witch in his review for The Playlist, writing: “An evocative look at the nature of evil and the inescapability of malevolence, “The Witch” will dazzle and shake you right to your core.”

The Witch, written and directed by Robert Eggers, stars Anya Taylor Roy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger, and Lucas Dawson. An official release date ha yet to announced.

Meteorologist Katie Fehlinger Puts Body-Shamers in Their Place After Negative Social Media Comments

(PCM) There’s a lot of shaming going on in the world today, especially on social media. It seems like anyone can be shamed for anything; there’s fat-shaming, skinny-shaming, makeup-shaming, parenting-shaming, and the list goes on-and-on. But now, it seems that some particularly nasty trolls on social media have taken to shaming pregnant women.

CBS 3 Philly Meteorologist Katie Fehlinger learned about this cruel form of shaming after receiving more than one horrible comment regarding her appearance in recent weeks.

Fehlinger, who is 38 weeks pregnant with two twin girls, has continued to report the daily weather every morning on CBS 3 Philly, having her image broadcast into the homes of millions of Americans every morning.

It’s no secret that news anchors and meteorologists are the subjects of frequent critique and ridicule when it comes to their appearance; when people are watching you every morning, they feel entitled to freely share their opinion on your looks, no matter how rude or negative the remarks.

Most anchors accept this as part of the job and do their best to shake it off, but every now and again a viewer goes too far and needs to be put in their place.

That’s what Fehlinger did in a very well-written Facebook post after receiving two incredibly rude comments regarding her pregnant figure.

A message for the haters…Hey guys! Once more, I have to get something off my chest. So, the nature of my job makes…

Posted by Katie Fehlinger on Wednesday, August 19, 2015

The post, starting with “A message for the haters…,” goes on to condemn those who think it’s okay to ridicule a pregnant woman’s body and lifts up pregnant women everywhere for their sacrifice and for being beautiful. The post reads in part:

“Hey guys! Once more, I have to get something off my chest. So, the nature of my job makes me an easy target for criticism. I will always understand that, and I will most typically just ignore it. However, after someone blatantly called me a “sausage in casing” and another declared that “sticking your pregnant abdomen out like that is disgusting”, I felt a need to draw a line and speak up.

Everyone’s right to their opinion is important, but so are manners. And while rude comments like these will never make me feel the need to change anything about myself, I find a bigger underlying issue here. These particular nasty-grams were directed at a pregnant woman.

So this little manifesto of sorts is dedicated to every mother out there – other pregnant moms-to-be, moms reading this while their toddlers play on the swing set, moms whose kids have long since gone off to college… You are beautiful.

Even during the most uncomfortable – and let’s face it, less than glamorous – symptoms of pregnancy, what women go through to bring their precious children into the world is, simply put, AMAZING and you should be lauded.

Frankly, I don’t care how “terrible” or “inappropriate” anyone thinks I look. I will gladly gain 50 pounds & suffer sleepless, uncomfortable nights if it means upping my chances to deliver 2 healthy baby girls. Now it’s about more than aesthetics. I want these babies to have the best start possible. And that hopefully means my belly that “looks like it’s about to explode!” will continue to grow the next few weeks.”

Fellow news anchors and moms around the country showed an overflow of support for Katie Fehlinger on social media, to which she had this to say:

“Beyond overwhelmed at the response! I NEVER expected this. In truth, I went in hoping for some catharsis more than anything smile emoticon But, when you think about it, it’s one of the most relatable topics out there. Everyone has a mom. Every human being on earth is here because a woman went through this journey…and THAT should be celebrated. Thank you all for proving that positivity outweighs the negative.”

You go, Katie Fehlinger!
