Popular college student Laura shares everything with her more than 800 Facebook friends. One day she accepts a friend request from classmate Marina, an awkward outcast. But when Laura excludes the hoodie-clad loner from her birthday party, she makes the mistake of posting pictures of the happy gathering. Outraged by the snub, and then devastated when Laura unfriends her, Marina kills herself, unleashing evil forces that commandeer Laura’s Facebook page and post a video of Marina’s gruesome suicide. Soon, one by one, Laura’s classmates Gustavo, Isabel and Olivia fall prey to demonic forces that include homicidal swarms of wasps. Laura’s Facebook page is mysteriously hacked and begins displaying videos of each of her friends’ horrific deaths, triggering a drop in Laura’s social media followers and turning her into a campus pariah. Kicked out of school for the out-of-control postings, Laura joins forces with her boyfriend Tyler and tech-savvy friend Kobe to try and stop the killings. Together, they uncover secrets of Marina’s past and learn of her involvement with the ancient witchcraft of the “Black Mirror,” which serves as a portal to evil spirits. Laura tracks the demonic forces’ origins to a remote site where they face off against the deadly social media terror gone supernaturally viral.

2017 Preview: September

September 1st, 2017


As bad as July was, August actually managed to be worse. 2017 was over $300 million behind 2016’s pace during August alone. That’s worse than the rest of the summer combined. The only film that was an unqualified hit was Annabelle: Creation, although there were a couple of other films that are doing well enough to be considered financial hits. There’s some good news and some bad news for this September. The month gets off to a slow start with no wide releases the first weekend, but there are three films opening during the rest of the month that are expected to top $100 million and all three should be better than the best August had to offer. It is expected to be the biggest hit of the month and is tracking to break the record for the biggest September weekend. Both Kingsman: The Golden Circle and The Lego Ninjago Movie are expected to cross $100 million, although they are opening the same weekend, so that could hurt both of their chances. Meanwhile last September, Sully was the biggest release of the month earning $125.07 million. It should top that, while Kingsman: The Golden Circle and The Lego Ninjago Movie won’t be too far behind. 2017 should cut the gap with 2016, but sadly only by a little bit. More...
