Watch The Devil All The Time Trailer

Netflix has released the official trailer for Antonio Campos’ forthcoming film adaptation of The Devil All the Time, featuring Tom Holland as he leads a star-studded ensemble in a psychological thriller about a young man who will do everything he can to protect the ones he love against sinister characters.

Based on Donald Ray Pollock’s 2011 novel, The Devil All the Time film is set in rural southern Ohio in a town called Knockemstiff over the course of two decades and surrounding a cast of dark and bizarre characters, including a serial-killing couple, a faith-testing preacher and a corrupt sheriff.

Spanning the time between World War II and the Vietnam war, director Antonio Campos’ The Devil All the Time renders a seductive and horrific landscape that pits the just against the corrupted.

The film will be led by Tom Holland (Impossible, Spider-Man: Far From Home) and Sebastian Stan (Captain America: Civil War, I, Tonya) along with Robert Pattinson (Good Time, The Batman), Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland), Bill Skarsgard (It), Haley Bennett (The Girl on the Train), Jason Clarke (Pet Sematary), Riley Keough (It Comes at Night) Eliza Scanlen (Little Women), Harry Melling (Harry Potter films) and Pokey LaFarge.

The Devil All the Time is directed by Antonio Campos who also co-wrote the adaptation with Paulo Campos. It will debut on Netflix September 16.

AMC Theatres Reopens Its Doors On August 20 By Celebrating 100 Years of Operations With “Movies in 2020 At 1920 Prices”

In 1920, the Dubinsky Brothers began operations with a single movie screen in Kansas City, Missouri. That single screen would serve as the foundation for what is known today as AMC Entertainment, the largest theatrical exhibitor in the United States, in Europe & the Middle East, and in the world. One hundred years later, as AMC reopens its doors to U.S. moviegoers for the first time in more than five months, AMC is celebrating its history with a throwback to the year it all started by offering “Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices.” When the first wave of more than 100 AMC theatres reopens on August 20 of 2020, moviegoers can again enjoy the magic of the big screen at 1920 ticket prices. For one day only, on August 20, all tickets at AMC will be priced at 15 cents (plus sales tax).

This is part of a phased plan to reopen AMC in the United States. AMC currently expects to open approximately two-thirds of its more than 600 U.S. theatre locations in time for the September 3 release of Warner Bros.’ TENET, following Disney’sAugust 28 release of The New Mutants. The remainder of AMC’s U.S. theatres will open only after authorized to do so by state and local officials.

The one-day 15 cent ticketing celebration kicks off several promotions that guests will find as they return to AMC around the country. After August 20, bring-back titles such as the special Inception 10th Anniversary Event, as well as titles like Black Panther, Back To The Future, Ghostbusters, Grease and Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back will be priced at only $5. AMC is also offering an array of $5 food and beverage treats, including regular popcorn, regular Coca-Cola Freestyle drink and KidsPacks, through the end of October. And all AMC Stubs members will earn double points on all ticket and food & drink purchases through the end of October.

In addition to the throwback movie titles that start August 20, guests can enjoy new movie releases almost immediately, which will be available at normal admission prices.

Ravensburger Announces The Princess Bride Adventure Book Game

The Princess Bride Adventure Book Game differs from traditional board games in that players interact with different game boards within the “book.” Players will become immersed in the story as they complete each chapter and navigate their way through locations found in the 1987 film, The Princess Bride. In this chapter-based board game, players need to work together to keep the plot of the story on course and tell all six chapters despite constant interruptions from a sick Grandson and interference from Vizzini, Count Rugen and Prince Humperdink. Players cooperate to complete challenges by moving the seven paintable character miniatures and discarding Story cards from their hand. Once all chapters are completed, the players win the game and true “wuv” prevails.

The game is 1-4 players for ages 10+ and will cost $25 at Target and on Ravensburger’s official website. The game will be released on October 4th, 2020.
