A few release dates worth mentioning for a pair of 2014 releases. First up is 20th Century Fox’s Devil’s Due.
The found footage supernatural thriller – directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett – is arriving in theaters January 17, 2014. Very little is known about the plot, but that will be remedied soon. We hear a trailer may be arriving with the release of Carrie. Zach Gilford, Allison Miller, Robert Belushi and Kurt Krause star.
Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett co-directed the haunted house segment of V/H/S (pictured).
Meanwhile, Jinn is getting a release from Freestyle Releasing on April 4, 2014.
The story of Jinn involves ancient mythological creatures who have never been seen in U.S. cinemas before. The premise of the jinn concept, known to over 1 billion people around the world, involves supernatural entities and revolves around creation mythology: In the beginning, three were created; man made of clay; angels made of light; and a third…made of fire. They are powerful due to their existence in a parallel world, and also because they have free will and can be both good and evil.
