New ‘Bates Motel’ season 5 posters

With the fifth and final season of Bates Motel just around the corner, IGN has debuted four creepy posters featuring Norman Bates and his mother, who (spoilers) he killed towards the end of the show’s previous season. Freddie Highmore’s Norman is detached from reality alongside Vera Farmiga’s Norma, whose face is void of expression, on the one-sheets, which tease yet another chilling season of the hit series. See them here…

Bates Motel Sason 5 Posters

This contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film Psycho has provided fans with an intimate look into the unraveling of Norman Bates’ psyche throughout his teenage years. Fans watched as Norman’s dangerous transformation came full circle when he methodically murdered his beloved mother, Norma, in the final gut-wrenching episodes of season four. Season five of “Bates Motel” picks up almost two years later and finds Norman (Freddie Highmore), a grown man now, living a double life. Publicly he’s a happy and well-adjusted member of the White Pine Bay community, but at home Norman struggles; his violent blackouts continue to increase as ‘Mother’ (Vera Farmiga) threatens to take over his mind completely. Meanwhile, Dylan Massett (Max Thierot) and Emma Decody (Olivia Cooke), since leaving White Pine Bay, have been living their lives blissfully unaware of Norma’s death and Norman’s full on descent into psychosis. Unfortunately, for them, they will soon find themselves drawn back into Norman’s insanity, while a vengeful Alex Romero (Nestor Carbonell), who is currently incarcerated for a perjury, hungers for a chance to destroy his stepson and avenge the murder of his one true love, Norma Bates.

Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke, Nestor Carbonell, Kenny Johnson and Ryan Hurst will all be reprising their roles for the new season, which takes place two years after the events of the previous one, while new cast members Rihanna (Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets) and Austin Nichols (The Walking Dead) are set to play characters originally from 1960’s Psycho, Marion Crane and Sam Loomis, respectively. Bates Motel will return to A&E on February 20th.

‘The Conjuring 3’ – To Be About Werewolves

The Conjuring 3 to be released in 2018 or 2019? And the rumours says it will be about werewolves!

The movie “The Conjuring” has been consistently doing well in the box office. With “The Conjuring 2” doing well as it was released early 2016, many are in much anticipation for the upcoming movie “The Conjuring 3.”

Many moviegoers, especially fans of horror movies are looking forward to “The Conjuring 3.” There are rumors circulating as to what it will be about and how intense the scare factor is. The previous movies delivered so much scare that there were reports of death while watching the movie.

It is sure that “The Conjuring 3” is going to bring in the punch. It is definite to give that gut-wrenching, eye-popping and wrist-clinching effect, no doubt. But what will the movie be about this time?

According to Release Date Portal, “The Conjuring 3” may be about werewolves. This is interesting and a different twist indeed. First two movies were about exorcism by demons. It will then be intriguing to know that the movie may deviate from its original plot to a different one.

From an interview with James Wan, “The Conjuring 3” producer, the third movie may be patterned or have a feel of “American Werewolf in London” style. Continuing with the imagination of the Warrens set against the backdrop of The Hound of Baskerville and how awesome he thinks it will be.

The movie “The Conjuring 3‘s” werewolf theme solidifies more as the Warrens have released a book with the title, “Werewolf: A Story of Demonic Possession” which was published in 1991. With this, excitement sure is building up.

As added by Cinema Blend, the movie “The Conjuring 2” has earned $40 million opening weekend. Just with this figure alone, a third movie and even more is sure to happen. The question is, when?

The movie “The Conjuring 3” may open 2018 or 2019. Basing it on a pattern, which may or may not be intended, producers and people behind the movie release it every three years. The first was 2013, the second being 2016 so it may be likely to see the third one on 2019.

However, with the excitement and fans growing somehow impatient for “The Conjuring 3,” it may be shown a year earlier than expected. Moviegoers will just be left on the edge of their seats as the new movie gets announced, hopefully soon.

Jacob Tremblay’s ‘Burn Your Maps’ for release date set

Cinelou Films has set an Oscar weekend release date of Feb. 24 for its Vera Farmiga-Jacob Tremblay comedy-drama “Burn Your Maps”, Variety has learned exclusively.

The film, directed by Jordan Roberts, centers on an American 8-year-old who declares to his parents that he is actually a Mongolian goat herder born in the wrong place. When he meets a similarly displaced Indian filmmaker, they journey east, seeking what they believe to be their true place in the world.

“It’s the same kind of quirky story as ‘Little Miss Sunshine,’ and we think mature audience will respond – particularly with an opening on the Oscar weekend,” said Mark Canton, who founded Cinelou in 2014 with Courtney Solomon.

Burn Your Maps” is the fifth title from Cinelou, founded as a prestige label specializing in character-driven adult-targeted movies in the $10 million range. Since then, it’s released Jennifer Aniston’s dark comedy “Cake” and Eddie Murphy’s “Mr. Church” with Robert De Niro’s “The Comedian” set to open Jan. 13 through Sony Classics. “Cake” performed solidly in limited release with $2.9 million and Aniston received Golden Globe and SAG nominations. “Mister Church” was less successful with $685,000 via Freestyle.

On Wednesday, the Sundance Film Festival gave a competition slot on Jan. 21 to Cinelou’s military drama “The Yellow Birds,” starring Tye Sheridan, Jack Huston, Alden Ehrenreich, Jason Patric, Toni Collette, Jennifer Aniston. Warner Bros. Pictures is handling international distribution for a total of six Cinelou releases.
