Do you believe in ghosts or or known someone who has had an experience?

I’m sure I know people who have had experiences with them. I don’t believe in them, but I know people who think they have. No, I’m not a believer myself so I find it unlikely that I will see one.

EXCL: DANIEL RADCLIFFE TALKS “THE WOMAN IN BLACK”: PART ONE

Daniel Radcliffe’s first movie post-Harry Potter, The Woman in Black, finally sees release tomorrow, Feb. 3, and The DLB recently sat down with him to discuss the film and his post-Potter career.

The DLB recently spoke to André Øvredal, the director of the Norwegian monster movie Trollhunter which opens at The Royal in Toronto Aug. 19 before debuting on DVD and Blu-ray next Tuesday (Aug. 23).

RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

Written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver

20th Century Fox

 

Warning: don’t go into Rise of the Planet of the Apes this weekend thinking you’re going to see some sort of sci-fi action movie like the original 1968 Apes film. Pamela, the woman sitting beside me at last night’s preview screening, made that mistake and left before the end of the first act, unable to stomach the idea of animals in danger. I suspect she would have had a heart attack had she stayed until the end.
