Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ Trailer Dropps

CBS Films and Lionsgate teamed up to bring us the first full look at Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.  Based on the book series written by Alvin Schwarts.

The film is directed by André Øvredal, best known for the smaller horror films, Trollhunter and The Autopsy of Jane Doe, and produced by Oscar winner Guillermo Del Toro.

Check out the trailer below.

The film has a horror Jumanji  vibe – a group of kids open a book and read from it, and things from the book come into the real world.  However, unlike the beloved jungle movie, this one has a lot more terrors in it.

The teens are played by Zoe Colletti, Michael Garza, Gabriel Rush, Austin Abrams, Dean Norris, Gil Bellows, Lorraine Toussaint, Austin Zajur, and Natalie Gonzhorn. 

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark drops in theaters this fall – August 9th.

‘Dora the Explorer’ Trailer Drops

The first trailer for Dora and the Lost City of Gold has dropped, and it shows that the film may actually take quite a departure from the Nickelodeon show.

While the show is known for teaching really young kids what a square and a spoon look like, this movie isn’t taking an educational route at all.  It is more like a young Tomb Raider movie.  I mean, come on – Dora throws a knife!

Check out the trailer below.

Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon team up to bring this action version of Dora the Explorer. The film stars Isabela Moner in the lead role with Eva Longoria and Michael Pena as her parents.

It’s a interesting take on the character.  Having Dora and her classmates kidnapped, then having to escape the bad guys while finding a lost city in the middle of a jungle.  Let’s see if the studios can pull it off.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold hits theaters on August 2 of this year.

The film also stars Luke Perry, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning, and Bruce Dern who is playing the rancher who owned the infamous ranch where Manson and his followers lived.
