Blumhouse has released the first trailer for Incarnate, a twist on the typical exorcism formula starring Aaron Eckhart as an alcoholic, wheelchair-bound man who battles demons from inside the mind of the possessed. He doesn’t use religious methods to expel the ungodly forces, he uses…technology, maybe, or perhaps just good old fashioned force of will? Presumably, they’ll answer that in the film because it’s not entirely clear in the trailer, but if the idea is executed it well, it could make for a nice revamp on a very well-told genre.
From horror mega-producer Jason Blum, and directed by San Andreas helmer Brad Peyton (though Incarnate was in the can before Peyton and Mr. Dwayne Johnson struck box office gold) from a script by Ronnie Christensen (Passengers), Incarnate pits Eckhart’s unconventional exorcist against a young boy, played by Gotham‘s David Mazouz, who is possessed by an incredibly powerful unholy spirit.
Incarnate also stars Carice van Houten and Catalina Sandino Moreno, and arrives in theaters September 30th. Watch the first trailer below.
In My All American, actors Aaron Eckhart and Finn Wittrock tell the remarkable true story of legendary University of Texas football duo Coach Darrell K Royal and all-star safety Freddie Stienmark. In theaters November 13th, the film focuses on Coach Royal leading Texas Longhorns football from their worst-ever record to winning a national championship, and how Freddie’s grit and indomitable spirit touched his life both on and off the field.
Eckhart is known for his roles in Any Given Sunday, Thank You for Smoking, and as Harvey Dent in The Dark Knight, while Wittrock is deemed one to watch with roles in seasons four and five of American Horror Story and Unbroken.
We caught up with the two stars to discuss their NFL week 10 predictions, Lady Gaga, and tackling Tom Brady.
Thoughts on the Oakland Raiders moving to LA?
Well I saw the mock of a new stadium, it looks good. I’m an Oakland Bay Area guy so I would like them to stay in Oakland. I’m very encouraged with their new coach, I like Derek Carr and I like Amari Cooper so I think we’re going in the right direction.
What impresses you most about NFL players as athletes?
What doesn’t impress me… they’re beasts, those guys, they’re stallions. When you’re watching the best of the best they have not only the physical [abilities], but they have the mental. Think about it, there’s five quarterbacks that who can throw a ball out of 6 billion people on the planet Earth, so they’re pretty special.
Who is the most underestimated player in the NFL?
Wes Welker, Tom Brady makes his receivers and tight ends so great. Usually it has to do with size, and usually the way they overcome it is through mental toughness and that’s a great lesson for us all.
