Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri Trailer


Somebody messed with the wrong mother when they murdered her daughter Angela Hayes (Kathryn Newton). Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) will stop at nothing to make sure that her child's killer is caught and after several months of still no arrests, she decides to take drastic action. She forks out for three enormous billboards to go up in her Missouri town with a message to the highly respected Police Sheriff Bill Willoughby (Woody Harrelson). An embarrassed Willoughby visits her to encourage her to take the billboards down, but she's standing firm and will certainly not be intimidated by police involvement - or, indeed, anyone who dares complain about them. She assaults her dentist with his own drill after discovering that he made a complaint and attacks two local high school kids who try to mock her. Even the local vicar is trying to appeal to her sanity at this point, but when she torches the local police station, it becomes clear that she's quickly becoming way out of control.

Chuck Barris Sam Rockwell

The Philadelphia-born television presenter died of natural causes at his home yesterday (March 21st 2017) in Palisades, New York and is survived by his wife of seventeen years Mary Rudolph. Chuck Barris revolutionised daytime TV in that he created the internationally popular 'blind date show' concept with his 1965 show 'The Dating Game', as well as one of the first TV talent competitions 'The Gong Show'. But perhaps the thing that he is most famous for is his claim that he once worked as a hitman for the Central Intelligence Agency.

Sam Rockwell Thinks Audiences "Just Want To Be Scared"


Sam Rockwell

Actors often get type-cast in specific genres and as particular characters but 46-year-old star Sam Rockwell cannot be accused of doing that with an impressive C.V. that includes Green Mile, Seven Psychopaths, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Iron Man 2.

PoltergeistSam Rockwell plays father Eric Bowen in a remake of the 1980s classic, Poltergeist

However, if he could be accused of appreciating one particular kind of film it may be the horror kind as he steps into the remake of the 1980s horror classic, Poltergeist, having started off his big screen career in the 1989 scare-fest, Clownface.

Sam Rockwell - Poltergeist Interview


Sam Rockwell talks about Poltergeist

A read-through of Sam Rockwell's resume‚ is like a read-through of the best of American cinema. Since his debut over 25 years ago, in the Francis Ford Coppola-produced horror flick, Clownhouse, his work has been as diverse as it's been steady, with barely a moment to rest between jobs. Lawn Dogs, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Matchstick Men, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Moon, Seven Psychopaths, The Green Mile, Galaxy Quest, Frost/Nixon, Iron Man 2, The Way Way Back. a single DVD box set could barely contain them all.

He's been a mainstay in the theater too, a long-term member of the LABryrinth Theater Company in New York City. He was directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, and later this year will return to Broadway in Fool To Love, written by renowned playwright (and Poltergeist screenwriter) David Lindsay-Abaire.

At 46, the California native shows no signs of slowing down. Last year alone he starred in four film projects, including Lynn Shelton's romantic comedy Laggies, and the comedy drama Better Living Through Chemistry alongside Olivia Wilde, Jane Fonda and Ray Liotta. This year, Rockwell has another four slated for release, including the remake of seminal horror movie, Poltergeist.

'Poltergeist''s New Cast Take On A Classic


Steven Spielberg Tobe Hooper Rosemarie DeWitt Sam Rockwell

Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper's 1982 haunted house movie 'Poltergeist' is so iconic that remaking it has always scared away filmmakers. Instead, they have merely been mimicking its innovative approach for more than 30 years.

'Poltergeist' was released on 22nd May 2015'Poltergeist' was released on 22nd May 2015

The remake's star Rosemarie DeWitt couldn't agree more. "I mean they rip it off constantly in the horror genre," she says. "So now we just didn't 'pretend' to not make 'Poltergeist', we just made 'Poltergeist'! Because the younger generation doesn't know that movie."
