Brittany Murphy's Last Film Is Finally Coming To Theaters; Watch The Trailer For Something Wicked Here!
The world was shocked and saddened when Brittany Murphy died under mysterious circumstances in late 2009.
From the delightfully wicked Drop Dead Gorgeous, to the emotionally resonant 8 Mile, to the completely flawless Clueless, it's safe to say the young actress played a large part in many of her generation's most underrated films!
She's been gone for nearly five years now, but she'll never be forgotten! In fact, the starlet's movies are gifts that keep on giving!
Something Wicked was the last film Brittany shot. Though it took a half decade to finish up, it is finally making its way into select theaters this month!
Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above)!
Yikes! Looks super scary! Brit looks flawless as always, but we can't help wondering whether the movie — which opens April 4th in Eugene, Oregon, where it was filmed — will be a dud! Considering that it's only to be played in 19 theaters after it's initial release, we don't have too much hope. But who knows! Crazier things have happened…
Do U think Something Wicked is a hot, steamy mess or are U eager to see Brittany's shining face one last time no matter the quality of the material?
We sure do miss Brittany Murphy. But because of how the film industry works, it looks like we'll be getting one more performance out of the late star.
Over four years after her tragic death in December of 2009, the last film Brittany shot has finally been given an official release date.
Something Wicked will premiere on April 4 at the Regal Theater in Eugene, Oregon (the town where the movie was filmed) before expanding nationwide.
A thriller about "young love gone wrong" is said to have one of Brittany's most haunting performances of her career. We can't wait to see it!
Of course, any joy we have watching will be tainted by the sadness of knowing this will be the last time. But all the more reason to celebrate it.

But what does Brittany's mother Sharon Murphy think of these new reports of foul play?
In a new essay, Sharon finally breaks her silence on the matter to rip apart both Angelo and his evidence. She says:
The more we hear about this case, the more complicated it gets.
Brittany Murphy tragically passed away in 2009, and though it was ruled to have been caused by anemia and pneumonia, her father, Angelo Bertolotti, recently opened up about the possible REAL reason she and her husband, Simon Monjack, died.
Her father is now claiming that they were poisoned as high levels of heavy metals were supposedly found in his daughter's hair post-mortem.
However, we're now hearing that this is not a surefire sign of poison. New reports suggest that if traces of heavy metal were found, it could have been the result of heroin use. The International Journal of Medical and Pharmaceutical Science Research and Review has allegedly reported that heroin addicts often have higher blood levels of almost all heavy metals tested.
But Brittany wasn't found to have heroin in her system at the time of her death!
Well, it seems heroin breaks down in the body within
This story gets sadder and more bizarre every day!
As we reported, Angelo Bertolotti said the test results showed that his daughter's hair contained high traces of heavy metals which apparently can indicate poisoning!
Well, the Clueless star's father also says he shipped those findings off to the El Lay Coroner's Office in the hopes of reopening the investigation into Brittany's tragic death, but the Coroner's Office swears they haven't received any documents from him at all!
Angelo assures the world that
And the person at the helm of this reinvestigation of sorts is the actress' father, Angelo Bertolotti.
In a new interview, the forever grieving parent still believes Brittany's death was infused with foul play:
"I had a feeling that there was a murder situation here. Yeah. It's poison. Yes. I know that."
Angelo is alleging in court papers that the coroner never tested
