Pro-tip: if you're scared of clowns or creepy dolls, you might want to skip the new ‘Poltergeist’ trailer. If you're all good with evil clown dolls coming to life and attacking young children, what are you waiting for?! You can watch the new ‘Poltergeist’ trailer above.

‘Poltergeist’ First Look: They’re Heeere...(And They Look Awfully Familiar)

The original 1984 ‘Poltergeist’ is one of the best horror films ever made. With its PG rating, it’s also one of the great Trojan Horses of genre cinema. Parents show it to their kids, thinking it will be a a little scary but totally family-friendly experience, only to realize too late (usually around the point where the guy hallucinates his face being torn off) that the movie means business. So, when we dive into the first look at the upcoming ‘Poltergeist’ remake, we do so with the skepticism of people who think the original masterpiece holds up as well today as it did over 30 years ago.

This week sees the release of ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ the latest sci-fi adventure from Andy and Lana Wachowski. And while in all likelihood ‘Jupiter Ascending’ will not go down in history as one of the great works of its genre, the occasion of a new sci-fi epic from two of the modern masters of the form seemed like a good time to assess and celebrate the recent highlights of science fiction cinema, which has taken audiences from the furthest reaches of the cosmos to the deepest recesses of the human mind.

One of the more curious horror releases arriving this year is the remake of ‘Poltergeist,’ starring Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Jared Harris. Remake or no, that is one enticing cast of talented people. The remake is based on the 1982 horror classic directed by Tobe Hooper and produced by Steven Spielberg, and up until now, we haven’t known a whole lot about it—aside from the fact that it will be presented in 3D (insert eye roll). A new interview with Rockwell provides some new details about the project, and doesn’t make it sound all that scary.

'The Way, Way Back' Interview: Stars Sam Rockwell and Maya Rudolph

"Marky Mark and the Fun Bunch." Precisely how Maya Rudolph came to incorrectly remember the name of Mark Wahlberg’s former music group is just one of the highlights of this great interview with her and Sam Rockwell, the two stars of 'The Way, Way Back,' the directorial debut of the writing team of Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. In the film, Rockwell and Rudolph play employees of a water park who help an awkward kid overcome some of his insecurities while he’s on vacation with his mother and her new, authoritative boyfriend. As a counterpoint to his oddly more dysfunctional domestic situation, the pair provide a stabilizing if unconventional influence on the boy, even if they aren’t quite funky.

Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.': Sam Rockwell's Justin Hammer to Appear?

Marvel's 'Iron Man 2' may have proven the least well-received of the trilogy, possibly even the cinematic franchise at large, but there can be no denying that Sam Rockwell's entertaining Justin Hammer character had clearly been shoved aside by 'Iron Man 3,' and likely any future films. If Robert Downey Jr. isn't interested in 'Iron Man 4' however, might Rockwell look to reprise the character in Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?'

'The Way, Way Back' premiered at Sundance and will be released by Fox Searchlight later this year. That's been a winning proposition for many films, including 'Juno,' '(500) Days of Summer' and 'Little Miss Sunshine,' which this most resembled. Or maybe it comes across that way because both star Steve Carell. Now there's a trailer for the film.

We've been looking forward to Martin McDonagh's ‘Seven Psychopaths‘ after we saw the first trailer, but it seemed to be missing something. That something? Foul language. Now with the release of the red band trailer, you can get a better sense of how much fun this movie could be.
