After a beautifully executed series of 9 character posters released throughout last week, we now get two more posters and three banners teasing key action sequences from the upcoming trilogy ending sequel The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies.Gandalf (Ian McKellen) lies amongst the rubble of war, bleeding from the head as Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) comforts him with a kiss in both a poster and a banner. In the second poster, we see Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, who has become obsessed with his reclaimed treasure as the Orcs march towards the Lonely Mountain.

Luke Evans looks good in a cape. And I get the impression that Luke Evans knows that he looks good in a cape, though, the trick is, as he says, a good wind machine. This is now life for Evans, an admittedly private actor who is starring in what seems to be just about everything these days. I asked Evans if he can walk down the street without being mobbed, to which he responded that, outside of a stray fan every few blocks or so, he can still walk around in general obscurity.

Right now, audiences can see James Wan's horror spin-off prequel Annabelle, which focuses on the story of the creepy doll glimpsed in The Conjuring. The film offers some decent scares, but it's mostly a formulaic story of demon possession and supernatural events that we've seen before. So MTV decided to freshen things up by taking some footage to Toy Story and mashing it up with the teaser trailer for Annabelle. The result is a very creepy and scary Woody that will never have you look at the cowboy the same way again.

- Dread Central: Annabelle: Mean-Spirited Prank Video
Warner Bros. Certain images come pre-loaded with an inherent creepiness — identical twins, clowns, dolls, identical ginger clown dolls — but while their presence guarantees some degree of an unsettling atmosphere they’re not actually all that scary. It’s a fine distinction perhaps, but it’s enough to make one leery at the idea of a horror film built around a doll.

PLOT: A young family, reeling from a violent attack, start experiencing strange phenomena after they buy a creepy doll that seems to have a life of its own. REVIEW: THE CONJURING was one of those pleasant summer surprises, in that it was a deliberately old fashioned, extremely effective little thriller with an unapologetic R-rating and a top-flight cast. It had style and it had substance. One of the most... Read More...

A prequel to 2013's fact-based horror hit The Conjuring, Annabelle tells the "origin" of that movie's possessed doll. Culling elements from Rosemary's Baby, The Conjuring, and Insidious, Annabelle isn't a Chucky-style killer doll movie but rather the umpteenth movie in recent memory about demonic possession. The aptly named Annabelle Wallis stars as (no, not Annabelle) Mia, a possible nod to Rosemary's Baby star Mia Farrow. Like Rosemary, Mia spends most of the movie pregnant and dealing with supernatural forces at play in her apartment building.
HitFix reporter Chris Eggertsen interviewed the cast and crew of "Annabelle" over the weekend, and here are five things he learned from them about the "Conjuring" spinoff and what scares them. http://www.hitfix.com
