[Box Office] New Dates For 'The Conjuring' and 'Prisoners'

Warner Bros. Pictures has made a major shift for James Wan’s The Conjuring (also going by The Warren Files), taking it out of its January date and pushing it to July 19, 2013. This isn’t bad news at all, but I think WB is playing a dangerous game releasing a horror film mid-summer. Wan, director of Saw, Dead Silence and Insidious, tells this alternate take on The Amityville Horror that’s inspired by the supernatural events that happened in the Rhode Island home of the Perron family. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are playing the investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. Lilli Taylor and Ron Livingston will portray the Perrons.

It’s also really exciting to hear that the long gestured Prisoners is finally cast up and about to begin shooting. Things are progressing so quickly that Warners has locked in a September 20, 2013 release! Aaron Guzikowski’s dark tale centers on a small-town man who, after his daughter and her friend are kidnapped and the cops fail to solve the crime, takes matters into his own hands, holding hostage the person he suspects committed the crime. He also comes into conflict with the big-city detective assigned to the case. Hugh Jackman, Melissa Leo, Jake Gyllenhaal and Paul Dano are all starring.
