amityville-the-awakening-movie-trailers-clip-images-and-posters

"Amityville: The Awakening" is a reboot of the Amityville horror franchise that first started in 1979 and was followed by a series of seven sequels and a 2005 remake.

Written and directed by Franck Khalfoun ("P2"), the film follows teenager Belle Walker (Bella Thorne), who moves with her family into a new house located in Amityville, Long Island.

The cast also includes Jennifer Jason Leigh, Cameron Monaghan, Mckenna Grace, Thomas Mann, Jennifer Morrison, Kurtwood Smith and Taylor Spreitler.

After a difficult production and several delays, "Amityville: The Awakening" was finally released in only 10 theaters on October 28, 2017 and grossed just $742. The film received mostly negative reviews.

suburbicon-trailers-tv-spots-featurettes-images-and-posters

"Suburbicon" is a satire directed by George Clooney from a script co-written by Clooney, Grant Heslov and the Coen brothers. The film is set in a peaceful 1950s suburban community that hides a disturbing reality. In this context, a husband and father played by Matt Damon is forced to confront the dark suburban nightmare after a home invasion upsets the community's fragile balance.

The film also stars Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac, Karimah Westbrook, Glenn Fleshler, Noah Jupe and Alex Hassell.

"Suburbicon" opened in theaters on October 27th, 2017 and received mostly negative reviews. While the cast received the occasional praise, Clooney caught most of the heavy flak for mishandling the film's conflicting tones and delivering an edgeless satire. The film is considered one of the most disappointing of 2017. It also tanked at the box-office, only grossing $2.8 million from 2,046 theaters in its opening weekend.
