A Mom Is On A Mission To Save Her Kids in BREAKING IN

BGN_Tsr1Sheet_0301_RGB_1This Mother’s Day, a group of thieves mess with the wrong mom!

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will do anything to rescue her children from a band of ruthless criminals who kidnap them before her very eyes.

In Breaking In, the new Universal Pictures action thriller from V for Vendetta director James McTeigue and producer Will Packer, Shaun (Union) takes her two children on a weekend getaway to her late father’s secluded house. When they arrive, she discovers her father had built a fortress designed with impenetrable security.  As she wonders why, criminals force their way in, lock her out of the house and hold her children hostage, demanding the contents of a safe.

Initially feeling powerless, Shaun’s maternal instincts kick in and she gets physical as she figures out a way to outwit her children’s captors.

When the ringleader tells her she is “a woman alone at the mercy of strangers,” she becomes determined to prove them wrong and find a way into the house to save her kids and herself from what looks to be certain death, even if she cooperates with the thieves.

1[1]

Union shines in this action-packed suspense thriller as a desperate mom who will stop at nothing to get her children back and teach the criminals a lesson: no traps, doors or locks, and especially no man can match a mother with a mission.

Fascination With Horror Movies Sets Stage For TRUTH OR DARE

TOD_Tsr1Sheet_RGB_1Get ready for a creepy tale on Friday the 13th! “Truth or Dare” arrives in theaters to scare your pants off in April.

The movie is produced by horror movie mastermind Jason Blum, whose company Blumhouse Productions was behind the 2017 blockbusters “Get Out” and “Split.”

In this new supernatural thriller, a harmless game of “Truth or Dare” among a group of college friends turns deadly when someone – or something – begins to punish those who tell a lie or refuse the dare.

The film, directed by Jeff Wadlow (“Kick-Ass 2”), stars Lucy Hale (“Pretty Little Liars”), Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf”), Violett Beane (“The Flash”), Sophia Taylor Ali (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Nolan Gerard Funk (MTV’s “Awkward”), and Hayden Szeto.

If you like sinister, creepy and hair-raising flicks, you probably don’t want to miss this one. A look at the movie trailer promises to keep your heart racing and adrenaline pumping – a signature effect of Blum films.

Blum has developed the perfect formula for success, turning small budget films into a horror movie gold mine with such hits as “Insidious,” “The Purge,” “Happy Death Day,” “Unfriended,” “Sinister,” and “Creep,” which have grossed over $2 billion worldwide. His first big hit, “Paranormal Activity” was his biggest profit-maker. Produced with a $15,000 budget, it made more than $193 million worldwide.

Why are his movies such a big success? Because he loves horror movies – when they’re well done.

“A lot of horror movies get made by people who don’t really like them, so they don’t respect them,” says Blum.

Even though he usually produces his films for less than $5 million, he always tries to deliver a great story with compelling characters and good acting.

“Horror is great storytelling with scary elements on top of it, but if you don’t have great storytelling, you can have all the scares in the world, but the movie won’t work.”

Don’t miss “Truth or Dare” in theaters on April 13.

THE SINNER | Renewed by USA Network for Season 2

gVp37qiZ[1]

USA has announced that THE SINNER will return for Season 2!

The show originally premiered as a six-part miniseries starring Jessica Biel and Bill Pullman, and will return  for a limited season in Summer 2018.

SYNOPSIS: Season 2 lures Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) back to his hometown in rural New York to assess an unsettling and heart wrenching crime — parents murdered by their 11-year-old son, with no apparent motive. As Ambrose realizes there’s nothing ordinary about the boy or where he came from, the investigation pulls him into the hidden darkness of his hometown. He’s pitted against those who’ll stop at nothing to protect its secrets — and a mysterious woman who proves to be a complicated, enigmatic piece to this haunting puzzle.

While Jessica Biel won’t be starring in Season 2, she’ll remain attached to the show as an executive producer alongside Derek Simonds, Michelle Purple, Charlie Gogolak, Brad Winters and Antonio Campos.

This show is definitely worth watching. It has you on the edge of your seat throughout every episode, and really makes you sympathize with characters you wouldn’t imagine sympathizing with. The premise for the show was based on the novel of the same name written by Petra Hammesfahr.

You can watch Season 1 of THE SINNER on DVD, Amazon Instant Video, Fandango Now, Google Play, iTunes, Microsoft, and Vudu.

Here’s the trailer for Season 1 in case you need convincing:

Movie Review by Kristin: IT | #ITMovie @ITMovieOfficial

IMG_2152

Goooooood morning!!!

It’s actually a GREAT morning because I was able to sleep after watching IT last night with the family! I don’t know why I agreed to watch that movie at night, but I did. I was tense the entire time and then took the most nerve-wracking shower I’ve ever taken in my life because I was certain that Pennywise was standing outside my shower curtain. Did I mention that I am NOT a horror movie person . . . AT ALL?!

SYNOPSIS: When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

Let me start by saying: 1) I do not like clowns. In no way, shape or form do I think a grown adult should be dressing up like that and entertaining children. lol. It’s just creepy in general. 2) As I already mentioned, I am not a horror movie fan, I don’t enjoy being scared, and I totally had to fall asleep last night watching FRIENDS on Netflix so I wouldn’t keep thinking about Pennywise the damn Dancing Clown!!

With that being said . . . the movie was actually better than I expected. I kept getting mad at the typical person walking into the basement instead of out of the house, but I digress. The majority of the cast were minors and I thought they all did a fantastic job! The script was great and they delivered the foul-mouthed lines perfectly. Jack Dylan Grazer, who plays Eddie had to be one of my favorites. The other members of the self-proclaimed  “Losers” group alongside Jack Dylan Grazer were Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Finn Wolfhard (Mike on Stranger Things), Sophia Lillis, Chosen Jacobs and Wyatt Oleff.

From watching the trailers, you would think that the sole purpose of the movie is for the kids to defeat Pennywise, but I like the little plot twist. It’s more about their fears than it is of Pennywise himself. He represents the respective fear for each of the kids, and I thought that was pretty interesting. It taught me two things: 1) Don’t let anyone know what your fear is and then maybe it won’t try to kill you, and 2) It you ever have to face your biggest fear, make sure you have the kids of Derry on your side.

Aside from being so incredible tense throughout the movie, I thought it was really good. The cast was phenomenal, the plot was interesting and the only complaint I really have is not being able to understand Pennywise a lot of the time because he constantly drooled and slurred his words. But, then again, I probably didn’t want to hear what he had to say anyway! So check it out and, as always, let me know what you thought!
