Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built – New Trailer

Lionsgate and CBS Films released today the new trailer for supernatural thriller Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built. Creepy…. Really creepy. I’ve never been to the house and now I am actually kind of want to go see this film more and more and also visit the house in San Jose, California. But we will need to wait until February 2, 2018, when the movie haunts in theaters. She can feel it. In the air. In the walls. The spirit has a power Sarah Winchester, portrayed by Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren, has not seen before and it has found them.

Inspired by true events, this supernatural thriller will take audiences inside California’s infamous Winchester House. Directed by The Spierig Brothers, Michael and Peter, who also wrote the script alongside with Tom Vaughan. This story of a woman building an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts also stars Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook, Angus Sampson, Finn Scicluna-O’Prey, and more.

On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. Built by Sarah Winchester, heiress to the Winchester fortune, it is a house that knows no end. Constructed in an incessant twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week mania for decades, it stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms. To the outsider it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman’s madness. But Sarah is not building for herself, for her niece or for the brilliant Doctor Eric Price whom she has summoned to the house. She is building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts, and the most terrifying among them have a score to settle with the Winchesters.

Only The Brave – Cast tells us all

On Friday, October 20, Columbia Pictures Only The Brave hits U.S. theaters. Directed by Joseph Kosinski, the film stars Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale, Taylor Kitsch and Jennifer Connelly. The film, written by Ken Nolan and Eric Warren Singer, based on the GQ article “No Exit,” by Sean Flynn, is about all men are created equal… then, a few become firefighters. Only the Brave, based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, is the heroic story of one unit of local firefighters that through hope, determination, sacrifice, and the drive to protect families, communities, and our country become one of the most elite firefighting teams in the country. As most of us run from danger, they run toward it – they watch over our lives, our homes, everything we hold dear, as they forge a unique brotherhood that comes into focus with one fateful fire.

Only one member of the firefighting team survived, Brendan McDonough, because he was assigned a scouting location apart from the rest of the team. Brendan was hired as consultants alongside with former hotshot Pat McCarty.

During a press conference that happened a couple of weeks ago in Beverly Hills, the actors recalled what it was like making such an emotional film that recreated the tragic events but also sheds light on the dedicated firefighters who regularly put their lives on the line to protect civilians and their cities, sleeping in the dirt without tents in the New Mexico, and much more. Let’s check it out:

Did you guys form a kind-of brotherhood like the real Hotshots when you were filming this on location?

Miles Teller – I think I underestimated the physical aspect of the job. I knew it was going to be tough but I wasn’t versed on Hotshot training before I showed up. I had seen some videos but it was tough, man, we were hiking and we shot in Santa Fe, which I also didn’t know was the highest altitude capitol in the country. It’s like 7,500 feet above sea level. We were filming some locations that were 10,000 feet above sea level. Josh (Brolin, who plays Eric Marsh, the crew’s superintendent) was giving everybody chlorophyll. I guess that was something that helps your body, your blood oxygenates better. But it was tough. It was a kick in the gut. I think the boot camp, as far as a cast rehearsal goes, I don’t think anything brings you closer together than collective suffering. It didn’t matter if it was somebody’s first movie because they looked like the actual guy or you’re Josh. Josh had an open-door policy and he really was the catalyst and energy behind this. He was our leader, top of the call sheet and he just carried that through the whole production. It was such a wonderful experience. I think anybody you talk to that was involved would echo that.

Josh Brolin – There’s a lot to that but it’s such a personal experience what we went through. To talk about it, we want you to think we went through hell, in order to become a Hotshot but the truth of the matter is, it’s like what Dwayne Steinbrink (Bridges’ character) said at the end, “You’ll never be a Hotshot but we’re glad that you guys represented.” He made that very clear and it was nice to get that honesty from somebody who was there and trained these guys but I think, as actors, we put ourselves in a situation where there was no comfort. It was very uncomfortable and I made sure that it was as uncomfortable as possible. There were no laggards. There was no entitlement. Everybody had a lot of respect for the story so they were willing to give 150 percent and it was great.

What was the one thing you wanted to make sure you captured about these real people?

Taylor Kitsch- To go back to the training as well, to have Pat and Brendan there, it really is, to me, a small percentage of why we’re there. Serving Chris) MacKenzie and Steve and Marsh and McDonough and these guys, it’s a responsibility that I think all of us absolutely loved and were honored by. That’s where that communal comes in, where everybody goes through their own fear of wanting to make people watching MacKenzie or Marsh that didn’t know them, know who there are after this movie comes out. It’s our responsibility to show that story. Yeah, there’s that responsibility and I that’s what drives you as an actor, a storyteller with Joe. Having this relationship with Brandon and having him with me talking about MacKenzie was invaluable and sharing laughs and going through that whole full spectrum of that as well is why you do it.

What was your favorite part of working with this cast?

Taylor – We’re very lucky obviously to be in this craft and this job. I wasn’t exposed to these Hotshots. I didn’t know. To have these opportunities to breathe life into MacKenzie and meet this dad and have that relationship that I have with him now but also to learn these trades, to go in and work with these guys that have real jobs and sacrifice on a real level, that was something that hit me over the head when I was doing this. We had a great time going to work with these guys up in the mountains with Kosinski. We did have a lot of laughs. You don’t want to forget about that either. In the worst of times, the worst scenario, these guys are literally laughing. That’s just how you deal with it sometimes. I’d say there’s a bunch of good memories.

What was your biggest concern in bringing your character to the screen?

Jeff Bridges – Everyone in the company wanted to do justice to the tale that we were telling. It’s invaluable to have people who actually went through that onboard. Brendan was there just about every day. Duane, the fellow I play, was there often. He came out to my place and spent a couple of days helping me figure out my costume and talking to me about the emotions he was feeling. When Joe invited me onboard, one of the things I couldn’t believe, was that Duane also is a singer, and has a band called The Rusty Pistols, and we’re going to put that in the movie. So, Duane came out and we jammed together. There’s nothing like music to bring people together. My friend, T Bone Burnett, ended up producing the song that I sing in the movie, and we used the real Rusty Pistols as the band in the movie.

What previous knowledge did you have about Granite Mountain Hotshots and this horrible tragedy? Were you aware of what happened to them before you signed on for your role?

Josh – I knew about it because I basically grew up in a firefighting community. I became a volunteer Wildland firefighter when I was 21. Even though I was working at the time, I didn’t tell production that I was a firefighter. I preferred spending time with firefighters more than actors. I spent three years in Tucson working with that community. So, it meant a lot to me to play Eric Marsh and I know a lot of firefighters who went to the funeral. As an actor, you want to be involved in a story, when you choose a movie, that resonates. Playing Cable is fun, but this is something different. It becomes very personal. I think it was very emotional for everybody involved. Everything was forward moving, and there’s something wonderful about that.
