#SDCC17: ScareDiego – Full Coverage: Stephen King’s IT, First Footage From The Nun, Annabelle: Creation, Q&A Videos and Scene Descriptions!

Published

on

Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema stole the horror show on Preview Night of the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con as they hit the ground running with a triple threat of NEW IT footage plus a Q&A with the film’s director and stars, a Q&A with the director and stars of Annabelle: Creation (review), and a BIG surprise – The FIRST EVER FOOTAGE OF THE NUN!

We have video of the Q&As for you right here along with brief descriptions of each scene. The host of the event was Rotten Tomatoes Senior Editor Grae Drake, and rarely have we seen a host for one of these things that did a better job of working the crowd, interviewing the talent, and being completely entertaining to boot! Kudos to her!

Grae kicked off the festivities in grand fashion. What we can’t show you here was a wonderful introduction by Stephen King. From there Drake brought out director Andy Muschietti to introduce a clip of some new IT footage that was being seen for the first time.

The clip perfectly set the tone for the movie, featuring most of the Losers’ Club standing at the edge of a cliff having a loogie spitting contest before diving in. It’s during this scene that Beverly Marsh (Sophia Lillis) solidifies herself as a member of the gang with hilarious results. These kids… the Losers’ Club… they have chemistry to spare. I was sold from frame one.

From there it was time to bring out said Club (minus Jaeden Lieberher, who plays Bill Denbrough) – Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor. They set up the next scene, in which the Bowers gang is beating up Ben Hanscomb (Jacobs), leading to a rock fight. We also get our first (and only) look thus far of Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise. The nefarious demon clown taunts Ben and at one point waves to him with a severed child’s arm. He was chilling. Absolutely chilling.

After another brief discussion, a brand new trailer was shown. It’s not available now at press time, but we’ll put it up as soon as we get it!

Look for IT in theaters on September 8th.

Next up, Grae brought out writer Gary Dauberman (It, Annabelle: Creation, The Nun). Gary apologized for the absence of The Nun‘s director, Corin Hardy, and then quickly announced that – SURPRISE! – we were getting treated to the first ever footage from the film. He then read a note from Hardy, and it was time for some action!

In the footage we see Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) doing some late night exploring through an incredibly Gothic and spooky looking church. She happens upon a room full of praying nuns all on their knees. Irene turns and notices a mirror on the wall… while staring into it, she sees one of the nuns come up to her and stand directly behind her. She turns to look, but the nun behind her is gone. Slowly the rest of the nuns rise up from their knees. Irene turns back to the mirror. No one is behind her, and then… BAM! The Nun (Bonnie Aarons) delivers a demonic shock. Fade to black.

Look for The Nun in theaters July 13, 2018.

It was then time for the main event. Grae brought up Annabelle: Creation director David F. Sandberg along with stars Stephanie Sigman, Anthony LaPaglia, Lulu Wilson, and Talitha Bateman. Check out the Q&A below.

Believe this… Annabelle: Creation is 100% pure nightmare fuel. Look for it in theaters on August 11th. Don’t blame us for the sleepless nights!

Things Get Bloody on Blu-ray When The Sword and the Claw Clash!

Published

on

Get ready to fight dirty as the two-fisted, ultraviolent grindhouse classic The Sword and the Claw is poised to hose down your home video collection with geysers of arterial spray! Coming to us from Alamo Drafthouse’s American Genre Film Archive on January 23, 2018, this is one title you’re not gonna wanna miss!

We’ve been obsessed with Turkish genre films for decades,” said AGFA director Joe Ziemba. “We were blown away to discover that we had the only known 35mm print in existence for this movie, which also happens to be Turkey’s most insane battle epic. This is the first 4K preservation of a Turkish genre film in history. We couldn’t be happier to share it with the world.

Special features include a new 4K scan from the only surviving 35mm theatrical print, face-smashing action trailers from the AGFA vault, and bonus movie Brawl Busters, which features a new 2K scan from an original theatrical print.

The eye candy doesn’t stop there either! This bad boy is coming with some neat reversible cover art with illustration by Alexis Ziritt (Space Riders)!

Synopsis:
They took his money. They took his family. And now, they’ve taken his hands. But they can never take his revenge! Exploding from the same hallucinogenic netherworld as TURKISH STAR WARS, THE SWORD AND THE CLAW stars Turkish genre legend Cüneyt Arkin in his most iconic role. It’s CONAN THE BARBARIAN meets The Three Stooges meets DOLEMITE with more lo-fi bloodshed, pop-art visuals, and bizarro dubbing than the boundaries of reality can handle. This is the movie that Kung-Fu Express described as the “Dirtiest fighting ever!”
