The new 'Deliver Us From Evil' trailer is here and it's selling a film that could easily be the scariest release of 2014. A combination of police procedural and demonic possession movie, it looks like a fresh spin on material that's seen plenty of play in the past few years. Could this be the next 'The Conjuring'? That's high praise for a movie that doesn't hit theaters for another month and a half, but it looks like it could be.
As films like 'The Conjuring' and 'The Last Exorcism' (Parts 1 and 2) tackled the exorcism/possession horror tale in new and, primarily in the case of the former, interesting ways, so too is 'Deliver Us From Evil,' the new trailer for which takes exorcism to the streets. If you can get past Eric Bana's New Yawkah accent and the fact that Olivia Munn is his wife, you'll be in for a scare or two.
The 'Deliver Us From Evil' trailer might feel a little familiar, but that's what happens when you have a horror film as successful as 'The Conjuring' -- everyone is going to want to copy that success. Here Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn and 'Community' star Joel McHale deal with the supernatural that's based on a real-life story.
How exactly do you bounce back from a critical and financial bomb as big as 'Battleship'? If you're director Peter Berg, you go make 'Lone Survivor,' a war film based on true events that's already started generating extremely positive pre-release buzz. The newest trailer for the film has arrived and we certainly hope the finished film is as intense as it looks here.
Seconds into 'Deadfall,' the lives of two of the main characters are sent careening off course by a fluke accident. They are siblings Addison (Eric Bana) and Liza (Olivia Wilde), making a fast getaway from a casino robbery. They're driving down a snowy road when a deer darts in front of their car, smashing through the windshield and flipping the vehicle into the woods. If everything had gone according to plan, Addison and Liza would have escaped. Through sheer coincidence, they did not.
Somewhere out there, there's an alternate universe where Eric Bana is a huge movie star. Intense and fearless, Bana has frequently contributed great work to films that don't deserve him and his career has suffered in the process. He now belongs to the Guy Pearce school of actors: former leading men bizarre character actors. The news that he's in talks to star in a supernatural thriller called 'Beware the Night' is heartening. It's been too long since Bana got the play the hero.
