THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH International Trailer Reveals More Creepy Bumps in the Night at the Eel Marsh House

by     Posted 59 days ago


Half the fun of The Woman in Black was seeing what Daniel Radcliffe could do post-Harry Potter so when The Woman in Black: Angel of Death was announced and Radcliffe wasn’t attached, I couldn’t help but think, what’s the point?  Woman in Black is a fine film, but there’s nothing particularly mind blowing about the Eel Marsh legend and, sure enough, the Woman in Black: Angel of Death trailers have failed to impress.  However, we just got a brand new international edition and it actually suggests that the sequel might have some potential.

Whereas the previous promos are rather thin and reliant on jump scares, this one offers up more story details.  The London blitz actually serves as an interesting backdrop and is a believable reason for why anyone would stay at that creepy old house.  Hit the jump to check out The Woman in Black: Angel of Death international trailer for yourself.  The movie stars Phoebe Fox, Helen McCrory and Jeremy Irvine, and is due in theaters on January 20th, 2015.

New Teaser for THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH Introduces the Title Character

by     Posted 71 days ago


I remember being a little underwhelmed by The Woman in Black when I first saw it in 2012.  It was a well made movie, but fell firmly into the category of “not my thing” despite the fact that I’m a huge horror nut.  Most fans disagreed with me though and the movie made an impressive sum of money on a relatively small budget.  If you saw the ending of that film, it will come as no surprise that Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t return in the sequel (or does he) but it looks like the atmosphere – a unanimous high point – from the original has arrived intact.

The new clip is much better than the first teaser we saw a few months back.  It’s still brief, but it actually has some incident in it.  Hit the jump to check out the new teaser for The Woman in Black: Angel of Death.  Helen McCrory and Jeremy Irvine star in the film directed by Tom Harper.  It opens in theaters on January 20th, 2015.

A few days ago at the Toronto International Film Festival, I landed an exclusive video interview with Jeremy Irvine for his new cat-and-mouse thriller The Reach.  Directed by Jean-Baptiste Leonetti (Carré Blanc), the film features Michael Douglas as a wealthy businessman determined to kill big game in the Mojave Desert.  To help accomplish his goal, he hires a local guide (played by Irvine), but after a  tragic accident they quickly become adversaries, and the rest of the film is about which person will survive.

During the interview Jeremy Irvine talked about working with Douglas, the physically challenging shoot, the story, watching it for the first time with an audience, and more.  In addition, he also talked about shooting Roland Emmerich’s Stonewall (about the gay rights movement), his process as an actor, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, Fallen, Mary Shelley’s Monster with Sophie Turner, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.

THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH Trailer Goes to Dark Places

The Woman in Black opened surprisingly big back in 2012, scoring $20.9 million during its opening weekend and then going on to lock in a grand total of $127.7 million worldwide.  With a $15 million production budget, the film clearly earned itself a sequel, but what’s another Woman in Black without Daniel Radcliffe?  Helen McCrory and Jeremy Irvine are certainly quality talent as well, but how can you expect them to draw the same crowd?  Then again, Radcliffe’s latest, What If, wound up being the fourth-lowest nationwide debut of the year.

Anyway, the reason we’re talking The Woman in Black is because a teaser for the sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, just dropped, and it’s a little underwhelming.  Hit the jump to check out The Woman in Black: Angel of Death trailer for yourself.

A first look at the Woman in Black sequel Angel of Death has surfaced by way of a promo poster.  Steve walked the floor of AFM earlier today and snapped some shots of the posters and images on display, and this eerie one for the horror follow-up seems perfectly timed for Halloween.  We know that Angel of Death will pick up forty years after the events of the first film, where Eel Marsh House has been seized by the government during World War II.  Naturally, the sudden arrival of a group of evacuated children awakens the house’s darkest inhabitant.  This image teases the children’s arrival as well as the return of the titular Woman in Black.

Hit the jump to check out the promo poster.  The Woman in Black: Angel of Death will be directed by Tom Harper.

We previously reported that Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) may be reprising his role in a sequel to Hammer horror hit, The Woman in Black.  While a recent press release neither confirms nor denies that, it does say that Tom Harper (The Scouting Book for Boys) has been set to direct. Additionally, the production team will stay intact for the sequel.  Continuing forty years after the events of the first film, The Woman in Black: Angels of Death, sees Eel Marsh House “seized by the government during World War II, the sudden arrival of a group of evacuated children…awakens its darkest inhabitant.”  Hit the jump to see the press release.

The most dangerous time in an actor’s career is shortly after a successful property comes to an end.  Being part of something that has an eternal life in pop culture is something most actors dream about, but the double-edged sword of viewers always seeing the actor as the character that made him or her famous has cut down many a careers.  Daniel Radcliffe takes his first major step away from the comfortable confines of the Harry Potter franchise through a doorway used by hundreds of sci-fi actors: the horror movie.  The Woman in Black is out on DVD and Blu-Ray.  Our review is after the jump.

Daniel Radcliffe Hinted to Return in THE WOMAN IN BLACK Sequel, ANGELS OF DEATH

by     Posted 2 years, 184 days ago


Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe may be headed towards another appearance following his leading role in The Woman in Black in the follow-up film titled Angels of Death. However, Hammer CEO Simon Oakes has stated that a second film in the series would be more of a continuation rather than a traditional sequel.

Woman in Black author Susan Hill reportedly has an outline for what happened nearly half a century after the events of the first story, which Oakes said they would plan to follow.  For more on the project and Radcliffe’s potential role, hit the jump.

Daniel Radcliffe Talks THE WOMAN IN BLACK, HARRY POTTER 3D Re-Releases, KILL YOUR DARLINGS, and Wanting to Play The Flash

One of this year’s box office surprises was the thriller The Woman in Black.  Starring Daniel Radcliffe in his first major role following Harry Potter, the Gothic horror tale was based off of a 1983 novel by Susan Hill and made over $125 million at the worldwide box office.  In fact, the film was such a success that Hammer, Alliance Films, Cross Creek Pictures and author Hill are teaming up for a follow-up entitled The Woman in Black: Angels of Death. The film will be set 40 years after the events of the first film, and will follow a new couple’s experience in the same eerie house.  For more on The Woman in Black, here’s all our previous coverage which includes trailers, images, featurettes and clips.

With the film hitting Blu-ray and DVD this week, I recently did an exclusive phone interview with Radcliffe.  We talked about the success of the film and if he was relieved that he could open a film that didn’t have the words “Harry Potter” in the title, what he thought worked really well in the film and if there was something he wished he could redo, how many takes he likes to do, and more.  In addition, we talked about his thoughts on Warner Bros. eventually re-releasing the entire Harry Potter series in 3D, the drama Kill Your Darlings (in which he plays poet Allen Ginsberg), his criteria for picking future roles, and whether there’s a comic book role he’d like to play (The Flash).  Hit the jump to either read or listen to the interview.

THE WOMAN IN BLACK Sequel Moving Forward

by     Posted 2 years, 261 days ago


Daniel Radcliffe stepped out of the Harry Potter shadow early this year in the British horror drama The Woman in Black, and the pic was a considerable success, grossing over $120 million worldwide and becoming the highest grossing British horror film of the past two decades. Given its box office take, it’s no surprise that a sequel is now moving forward. Hammer, Alliance Films, Cross Creek Pictures and author Susan Hill are teaming up for The Woman in Black: Angels of Death. The film will be set 40 years after the events of the first film, and will follow a new couple’s experience in the same eerie house.

The first film’s screenwriter, Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass), sadly won’t be returning, so Hill will be handling scripting duties this time around. Radcliffe won’t be coming back either. I didn’t catch the film, so I’m not sure if this is good news or bad news; I heard both good and bad things about the pic from trusty friends so I guess I’m gonna have to see for myself. Nevertheless, its refreshing to see a horror franchise that doesn’t rely on gallons of blood or camera gimmicks to sell tickets. Hit the jump to read the full press release.

by     Posted 2 years, 318 days ago


It didn’t claim the record for highest debut or the greatest attendance, but this year’s Super Bowl weekend still caught most box office watchers by surprise with two bigger-than-expected openings. Fox’s Chronicle was first with $22 million from 2,907 locations, but CBS Films’ The Woman in Black was right on its heels with $21 million from 2,855. That’s the first time that two titles have opened to over $20 million on a Super Bowl frame since… ever.

Title Weekend Total
1 Chronicle $22,000,000 $22
2 The Woman in Black $21,000,000 $21

Friday Box Office – CHRONICLE and THE WOMAN IN BLACK in Tight Race for Super Bowl Title

by     Posted 2 years, 319 days ago


Box office watchers were not expecting much from this year’s crop of Super Bowl Weekend releases. The three films opening against America’s biggest sporting event had modest goals to match their (mostly) modest budgets; and yet, here we are, with a photo finish for first on Friday and a weekend that is shaping up to make 2011’s Super Bowl weekend pale by comparison.  Estimates put Fox’s Chronicle on top with $8.6 million from 2,907 locations. Not far behind, however, is CBS Film’s The Woman in Black with an estimate of $8.3 million from 2,855 locations. That’s 45% higher than anyone expected from the supernatural-thriller. Right now, Chronicle is expected to edge out Black with $20 million to $19.7 million this weekend; but it is important to note that neither film was projected to make anything close to $20 million by Sunday. Only Universal’s Big Miracle is coming in as projected. The family film made an estimated $2.3 million on Friday for what looks like an $8 million first weekend. Join us tomorrow for a more detailed look at the studios’ counterprogramming successes, unless you have other plans…?

Title Friday Total
1 Chronicle $8,650,000 $8.6
2 The Woman in Black $8,300,000 $8.3
3 The Grey $3,200,000 $28.4
4 Big Miracle $2,300,000 $2.3
5 Underworld Awakening $1,700,000 $50.5

THE WOMAN IN BLACK New Featurettes, Clips and Poster

by     Posted 2 years, 329 days ago


For Daniel Radcliffe’s first major role since Harry Potter, he chose to star in The Woman in Black, a gothic horror tale based off of a 1983 novel by Susan Hill. Horror movies have been lucrative as of late (Insidious, Paranormal Activity 3, The Devil Inside) and legendary studio Hammer Film Productions is delving back into the sort of film that made them popular in the UK. On this side of the pond, however, Radcliffe’s name is sure to stir up more interest than the revival of an old horror studio. With that in mind, domestic distributor CBS Films has released a collection of behind-the-scenes featurettes and clips for The Woman in Black in an effort to showcase Radcliffe’s maturity as an actor. Directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake), The Woman in Black stars Radcliffe, Janet McTeer (Tideland) and Ciaran Hinds (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and opens February 3rd. Hit the jump to check out the featurettes, clips and a new poster.
