Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson unveils the first poster for Universal Pictures and Blumhouse’s horror film The Black Phone. Directed by Derrickson from his adapted screenplay co-written by Doctor Strange writer C. Robert Cargill, The Black Phone brings Derrickson and Sinister star Ethan Hawke together in an adaptation of the 2004 short story by author Joe Hill (NOS4A2, Locke & Key). “Never talk to strangers,” warns the poster for the horror thriller by producer Jason Blum (The Forever Purge, Halloween Kills), on which Hawke (The Purge, Marvel’s Moon Knight) can be seen as a costumed creep who takes the young victim Finney Shaw (For All Masonic Thames of Mankind).
“The Black Phone” is definitely one of the scariest films we have ever made. Scott thinks it’s his best film, “said Blum Collider earlier about the new film that unites him with its Sinister director. âI’m such a fan of Scottsâ¦ I really like all of his films. I loved Sinister but I will surely say that it is one of his best films. Maybe the best film he’s ever made. “
When Finney finds himself in a soundproof basement with the remains of the killer’s earlier victims, he takes calls from the dead when an antique – and separate – phone rings.
The Black Phone marks Derrickson’s return to horror after directing Deliver Us From Evil in 2014 and co-writing Sinister 2 with Cargill in 2015. Citing “creative differences,” Derrickson and Cargill left the Marvel sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and reunited to answer the call for The Black Phone.
The official description for Hill’s short story Inspiring The Black Phone is below.
âThere were creative differences. wanted to do one movie and Marvel wanted to do another movie. So he sat there and said, ‘Well shit, I have this great script that I wrote with Cargill and I’m really proud of it,’ “Cargill told CinemaBlend. âWe were going to be dating other directors for The Black Phone, and Scott said he called me and said, ‘Dude, I have to do this movie. It has to be my film, I have to do this. Do you mind waiting until I’m done with âHe really wanted to piss me off too. But in case it didn’t happen, he said, ‘Do you mind waiting?’ “Cargill continued. âAnd I thought, ‘You know what, if you feel that passionately, no. I’ll wait a couple of years to make this film. ‘”
Jack Finney is thirteen, alone and in desperate trouble. For two years someone has been chasing the boys from Galesberg, stealing them so that they will never be seen again. And now Finney is in danger of joining them: locked in the basement of a psychopath, a place stained with the blood of half a dozen murdered children.
With him in his underground cell is an antique telephone that has long been disconnected. . . but the doorbell rings at night anyway, with calls from the killer’s previous victims. And they’re determined to make sure what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney.
With James Ransone (IT: Chapter Two) and Jeremy Davies (Lost), Universal and Blumhouse will open The Black Phone in cinemas on January 28, 2022. Chloe Zhao’s Eternals may be rated PG-13 here in the US, but it’s becoming a different story internationally. News quickly spread (via The Direct) on Saturday morning that the Russian film classification organization gave the film an 18+ rating, the first for a Marvel Studios film in the country. In comparison, films like Avengers: Endgame or Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings were treated as 16+ releases, while The Avengers and Spider-Man: Far From Home received 12+ ratings.
The âChild Prohibitedâ rating is one of Russia’s cinemas that is often reserved for Western LGBTQ +-themed films, such as the Power Rangers’ latest reboot after the country passed a 2013 âGay Propaganda Lawâ. It is a law that has since been condemned by the Council of Europe, the United Nations and various human rights groups such as Amnesty International. In the United States, Eternals is rated PG-13 for “Fantasy Violence and Action, Some Language, and Brief Sexuality.”
In the film, Brian Tyree Henrys Phastos is said to be the first openly gay superhero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. âI just made a Marvel movie with the first openly gay superhero, The Eternals. I’m married to the gay superhero Phastos, played by Brian Tyree Henry from Atlanta, and we represent a gay family and have one child, âEternals actor Haaz Sleiman previously told LOGOs NewNowNext.
âOh, yes, absolutely, and it’s a beautiful, very moving kiss. Everyone cried on set, âadded Sleiman. âIt is very important to me to show how loving and beautiful a queer family can be. Brian Tyree Henry is such a great actor and brought so much beauty to this role and at one point I saw a child in his eyes and I think it’s important for the world to be reminded that in the queer community we are all children were a point. We forget because we are always portrayed as sexual or rebellious. We’re forgetting to connect to this human part. âEternals is currently scheduled for release on November 5th.
