Some say that all houses have memories. For one man, his home is the place he would kill to forget. Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts star in Dream House, a suspense thriller about a family that unknowingly moves into a home where several grisly murders were committed…only to find themselves the killer’s next target. Successful publisher Will Atenton (Craig) quit a job in New York City to relocate his wife, Libby (Weisz), and two girls to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived. When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from Ann Paterson (Watts), a neighbor who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the story of the last man to leave Will’s dream house will be just as horrifying to the one who came next.
America took one look at the new offerings in movie theaters this weekend and passed, instead heading straight for the leftovers table. Despite four brand spanking new options hitting screens it was last weekend's top three who remained on top. After two weekends at number one, The Lion King traded places with last week's number three entry Dolphin Tale.

Weekend Box Office: No One Wins When Hollywood Tanks This Badly
The early numbers are in and it’s turning into a bad weekend for nearly everything being released by Hollywood. Three new movies opened this weekend in wide release: Dream House, What’s Your Number?, and 50/50. While all three movies have received very different reactions from critics and audiences, all three are headed for instant failure at the box office.

What's Your Number? May Be Weekend's Biggest Failure
The Rotten Watch is coming off a stunningly terrible week and looking for a little rebound. It got ugly around here. Real depressing. Like crying naked in my bathtub, with a glass of Beaulieu Pinot Noir, listening to Damien Rice type of situation. Scary stuff. But this week we’ve got a bunch of stuff to cheer me up.

This Rotten Week: Predicting 50/50, Dream House And What's Your Number Reviews
The trailer for the film seemed to carry trappings of The Amityville Horror with the young family menaced by the sins of their new home’s past. Now this clip, featuring a terrifying discovery via backwards writing seen through a mirror, is reminiscent of The Shining. Not to say the film is unoriginal; it’s actually fun to chart these influences.

New Clip From Dream House Shows The Darker Side Of Graffiti
The first trailer for Dream House has arrived and, for some reason, it spoils the entire movie. The film is a horror thriller starring Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, and Naomi Watts. All you’re supposed to know about it going in is that a family moves into their dream house, and creepy things start happening to them.

Daniel Craig's Dream House Trailer Spoils The Entire Movie
Gregory Smith signed on for not one, but three films. He joined the cast of Dream House, Whirligig and Conception. Smith has one heck of a busy schedule. Dream House is shooting now, Conception is set to shoot this month and Whirligig is supposed to come at some point in between.
It's still hard to know what to make of the upcoming Dream House, a movie that sounds like your typical haunted house thriller except for the people involved-- director Jim Sheridan, stars Daniel Craig and Naomi Watts, and now Rachel Weisz too

Rachel Weisz Moving Into Daniel Craig's Haunted Dream House
Craig plays the father of a family that relocates to a small New England town, where they learn that a vicious murder once took place in their home. Filming starts in January 25, after Craig wraps up his run on Broadway in A Steady Rain
It would be a big bona fide, non-Bond leading role for Craig, who had to share leading man duties with Liev Schreiber in Defiance and otherwise hasn't really established a screen persona outside of 007
