Amazon Debuts Trailers for Joey King, Sydney Sweeney Blumhouse Horror Films

Published

on

As Halloween creeps closer, we’re getting more seasonal horror to celebrate the holiday. Prime Video in particular is going all in this fall with a lineup of four films from horror mastermind Jason Blum and his Blumhouse production company. Today, Amazon released the trailers for the brand-new films, which all debut this October.

Blumhouse gave us a first look at The Lie, Black Box, Nocturne and Evil Eye, four original movies that all stay within the horror genre but tell very different stories. The Lie stars Joey King in a role that’s about as far from The Kissing Booth as you can get. King stars as Kayla, a teenage girl who confesses to her parents that she killed her best friend, Brittany, on an impulse. While her parents try and protect their daughter and cover up the crime for her, they fall deeper into a complicated series of lies.

Today’s The Lie trailer teases the psychological thriller, which also stars Peter Sarsgaard in the role of Kayla’s father, Jay. It all begins with Kayla spotting Brittany on the side of the rode while she’s waiting for the bus, and inviting her friend into the car with her and her dad. The girls take a break and pull over to go to the bathroom, but when Jay hears a scream from the woods, he runs to find them. When he reaches the girls, only his daughter is there, sitting on top of a bridge over a river — and Brittany is nowhere to be found. “How do you undo something really bad?” Kayla asks her dad. “I pushed her, I pushed her and she fell,” she confesses.

We also got a look at Sydney Sweeney‘s Blumhouse thriller, Nocturne. While King’s film is a twisted, psychological tale, Nocturne dips into the supernatural with ghosts and spirits. Sweeney stars as Juliet, the twin of successful musician Vivian. When Juliet discovers her dead classmate’s old music theory book, she becomes obsessed with its contents and lets everything on the mysterious pages overtake her.

Today’s trailer shows Juliet’s transformation from timid student to bold, accomplished musician, but it comes at a terrifying cost. “Something’s up with you, Jules,” Vivian tells her sister. “I won’t be there to pick up the pieces.” Although she’s widely recognized for her role on Euphoria, Sweeney she’s no stranger to horror — she’s starred in multiple scary movies over the years, including The Ward, The Horde and Along Came the Devil. 

The other two Blumhouse films, Black Box and Evil Eye, look just as dark and thrilling as The Lie and Nocturne. Black Box, starring Mamoudou Athie, follows a single father who questions his identity after undergoing an experimental treatment following the death of his wife in a car accident. Evil Eye, which stars Sarita Choudhury, tells the story of a woman who becomes suspicious of her daughter’s boyfriend’s past and its link to her own secrets.

The Lie and Black Box premiere on Prime Video Oct. 6, while Nocturne and Evil Eye hit the streaming service a week later, on Oct. 13. Watch The Lie trailer in the video above, and check out the trailers for the rest of the Blumhouse films below.

Ellen DeGeneres Apologizes For Toxic Workplace Scandal: “I Take Responsibility for What Happens At My Show”

Published

Ellen DeGeneres is starting fresh with Season 18 of her show, promising viewers “a new chapter.” In her first monologue since taking a hiatus over the summer, the The Ellen DeGeneres Show host addressed the allegations and reports that have plagued her show for months now, apologizing to those affected and taking responsibility going forward, the New York Times reports.

“As you may have heard, this summer there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show and then there was an investigation,” DeGeneres began. “I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously and I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected. I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power and I realized that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show.”

The monologue comes after a tumultuous few months for DeGeneres, who was the subject of multiple reports over the summer detailing a toxic workplace on the set of her show and accusing producers of sexual harassment. As a result, WarnerMedia launched an investigation into The Ellen DeGeneres Show and three producers were fired. Before her official Season 18 debut earlier this month, DeGeneres promised her viewers, “we’re gonna talk about it.”

Keeping true to her promise, she didn’t hold back on today’s show, even addressing the claims that she’s not really as nice as she seems. Over the summer, comedian Brad Garrett claimed that DeGeneres’ “horrible” behavior was “common knowledge” in the industry. DeGeneres owned up to her reputation as the “be kind lady,” and explained that her mantra began after the death of Tyler Clementi, a young man who killed himself after being bullied for his sexuality. “I thought the world needed more kindness and it was a reminder that we all needed that, and I think we need it more than ever right now,” she said.

Despite the rumors about her behavior behind the scenes, DeGeneres insisted that she shows her authentic self on camera. “The truth is I am that person that you see on TV,” she said. “I am also a lot of other things. Sometimes I get sad, I get mad, I get anxious, I get frustrated, I get impatient.”

She later added, “I am a talk show host and you know that, but maybe some of you know that, you know, I was an actress. I’ve played a straight woman in movies so I’m a pretty good actress. But I don’t think that I’m that good that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me and my intention is to always be the best person I can be.

“And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I am so sorry for that. If that’s ever the case, I have let myself down and I’ve hurt myself as well because I always try to grow as a person. I look at everything that comes into my life as an opportunity to learn. I got into this business to make people laugh and feel good — that’s my favorite thing to do. That and Jenga, I love that game.”

The Ellen DeGeneres Show returns for Season 18 today on NBC at 3/2c. Watch DeGeneres’ full monologue in the video above.
