Scott Derrickson’s Sinister was clearly one of the standout horror films of 2012, and those anxiously awaiting a follow-up were probably elated when Sony’s Screen Gems decided to move his upcoming Beware the Night forward to 2014, giving it a release over the 4th of July weekend – not a weekend where we normally get to see horror or genre movies.
While talking to Eric Bana for his upcoming war drama Lone Survivor, ShockTillYouDrop.com talked with him about the supernatural thriller and working with Derrickson.
When Scott Derrickson began work on Beware the Night this year, I thought it was awfully weird that it wasn’t expected to hit theaters until 2015. ShockTillYouDrop.com has been informed, however, that Sony’s Screen Gems has shifted the release date to July 2, 2014 – placing the supernatural thriller right in the middle of the summer movie season.
This places the film up against the Melissa McCarthy-starring comedy Tammy and a week before Fast and Furious 7, directed by James Wan. But, we’re told the studio has confidence in Beware the Night and it looks like it’s trying to capture some of that Conjuring-like magic.
