Bella Thorne took to her Instagram account to share the latest one sheet for the upcoming Amityville: The Awakening. For me, it’s passable but I think the iconic house should play a much more central role in the poster than Thorne’s character. But what do you think?
Thorne captioned the post with the following statement: “Can’t waIt to give you nightmares – check out our new poster! @AmityvilleAwakening opens April 1st #film #horror #yass #april1st #amityville#friyay #cantwait #superexcited”.
According to the latest report from the MPAA, Amityville: The Awakening has been recut to secure a PG-13 rating classification. This comes as something of a disappointment when one stops to consider that it was originally announced that it would carry an R-rating. But, I’m waiting to actually see the film before making any kind of judgment.
Amityville: The Awakening is slated for a nationwide release next month. You probably already know all about the fiasco in which Dimension Films inexplicably pulled Amityville: The Awakening from its upcoming release schedule. But just in case, here’s the rundown: It was initially planned for a January 2, 2015 release. Then, Jason Blum revealed that his production company was still working out the details of postproduction with Dimension. Then, after being bounced around a bit, the film finally secured its current date of April 1st.
In the film, “Belle and her family move into a new house, but when strange phenomena begin to occur, Belle begins to suspect her Mother isn’t telling her everything about the home’s history. She soon realizes they just moved into the infamous Amityville house.”
Amityville: The Awakening is helmed by Franck Khalfoun (Maniac 2012). It stars Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), Bella Thorne (Scream: The TV Series) and Cameron Monaghan (Vampire Academy).
