Janet Hodgson Discusses Strange Happenings For The Conjuring 2 In New Featurette

When it comes to horror movies this year, The Conjuring 2 is the movie that I am looking forward to the most.

It was back in 2013 when the first film hit the big screen and now James Wan is back in the director’s chair as he reunites with Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, who reprise the role of Lorraine and Ed Warren.

The Conjuring 2 sees the couple travel to Enfield in London – for what has now become a well known case.

Madison Wolfe is set to take on the role of Janet Hodgson and the real Janet Hodgson talks about her experience in this new featurette:

David Thewlis, Franka Potente, Maria Doyle Kennedy, and Frances O’Connor complete the great cast list.

Reprising their roles, Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, who, in one of their most terrifying paranormal investigations, travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.

The Conjuring 2 is released 13th June.

Warcraft: The Beginning – A Look Inside Featurette

Warcraft: The Beginning is set to be one of the biggest films of the summer and there is not long to go now until the film finally hits the big screen.

Warcraft: The Beginning is based on the hit computer game and this is the first time that it has been brought to the big screen. Duncan Jones is back in the director’s chair and it is set to be the biggest film of his career to date.

I am a big fan of Jones – who has brought us Moon and Source Code – and I am excited to see him tackle the big budget blockbuster for the first time.

In this brand new featurette the director and the cast talk about the film. It looks like it is going to be an epic ride:

Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky and Daniel Wu have come together to make up the terrific cast list.

The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another.

As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces
extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home.

So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.

Warcraft: The Beginning is released 30th May.
