Ron Perlman joins Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Alison Sudol, Colin Farrell, Jon Voight, Gemma Chan, and Carmen Ejogo in the cast. Ron Perlman will play a goblin that I can imagine was his dream role in the film. David Yates directs the film from a script written by Rowling.

Christopher Landon‘s Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) is nearing its October 30, 2015, theatrical release date via Paramount Pictures so today we have a new poster and clip.

Tye Sheridan, David Koechner, Cloris Leachman, Halston Sage, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan, and Sarah Dumont star in Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.
Producer and filmmaker Adam Ripp will be bringing us The Curse of Poltergeist documentary that will try to shed some light on the Poltergeist Curse we documented here.

The official release date nor trailer have been released yet, but we will keep you updated once more news is released.
James Wan posted a new set photo from the set of The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist (2016) with Wan, Vera Farmiga, and Patrick Wilson. New Line Cinema and Wan will be releasing The Conjuring sequel June 10, 2016. The Enfield Poltergeist is the story of Peggy Hodgson (played by Frances O’Connor), who at the time was a single mother raising four children. Moving furniture and levitation ensued including the ghost’s communication through one of the daughters. Ed and Lorraine Warren soon after visited the home to help the distressed family. Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes will return to write the screenplay.
