Netflix has released an official trailer for In the Tall Grass, an adaptation of the novella of the same name written by father and son authors Stephen King and Joe Hill which was first published in Esquire magazine back in 2012. The project was announced in May of last year.
The adaptation is directed by Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) and stars Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, The Conjuring), Laysla De Oliveira (The Gifted, iZombie), Rachel Wilson (The Glass House, Saw 3D: The Final Chapter), Avery Whitted (The Vanishing of Sidney Hall), Harrison Gilbertson (Need for Speed, Upgrade), and Will Buie Jr. (Gifted, Bunk’d).
You can check out the trailer for In the Tall Grass along with a brief synopsis and more below.
Watching this latest trailer for Roland Emmerich‘s Midway, one can’t help but feel that they’ve seen something like this before.
That’s because it bares a striking resemblance to Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor, using actual history to create a popcorn blockbuster that is full of action, explosions, and heroic music. Lionsgate has released a new trailer for the film, which you can check out below.
Ever since the Annabelle doll first appeared in James Wan‘s The Conjuring, she has been on a wave of terror that has spread across multiple spinoffs in the Conjuring universe. And now, she is ready to come back to where it all started in Annabelle Comes Home. For after spending her creepy life scaring the living daylights out of two families, she finds herself back encased in a glass box at the lovely home of Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga). You know, the paranormal investigation couple who we saw in the first Conjuring. Well, all three are back for an all-new haunting that will see Ed and Lorraine protect their daughter (Mckenna Grace) from the nightmarish doll that will forever haunt our memories.

Aquaman may be one of the most iconic superheroes in the DC lineup, but the character himself has a reputation for being one of the silliest superheroes. Furthermore, his introduction in Zach Snyder’s Justice League did not do him any favors. That being said, Jason Momoa‘s portrayal was a radical change for the one-dimensional pasty white hero. Instead, we got something that truly represented the character’s struggle of living in two worlds while acknowledging his overall cheesiness.
This helped lay the foundation for his own standalone film. Directed by James Wan, Aquaman sees the return of Momoa playing the aquatic eponymous hero in a globe-trotting superhero epic. By embracing many of the title character’s foibles and cheesiness, the film turns out to be one of the best DCEU entries to date. And while that is an easy bar to cross over, its world-building and willingness to have fun expands the cinematic universe and opens the door for the DCEU to explore bold and new possibilities.
