Before The Snyder Cut, There Was William Gibson’s ‘Alien 3’ — And Now It’s Back Before David Fincher murdered Hicks and Newt offscreen, the sci-fi genius behind Neuromancer imagined the ultimate Aliens sequel.

"Am I crazy, or is your brother indestructible?"

I initially had little interest in watching Skyscraper, the new action adventure feature starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I hadn’t watched any of the trailers and knew little more than “It’s Die Hard starring the Rock.” I had even more trepidation upon discovering Johnson’s character, Will Sawyer, is a disabled man with a prosthetic leg. As a disabled writer, I worried how the movie would use disability. Would the Rock be a man with a magical leg that did all manner of things? Would the disability be considered a curse his character resented until it benefited him personally?

Lionsgate has debuted the first official trailer for a cheesy romantic comedy titled Little Italy, the latest from veteran filmmaker Donald Petrie (Grumpy Old Men, Ri¢hie Ri¢h, Miss Congeniality, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Just My Luck). This film has such a cheesy concept, the kind that makes you roll your eyes it's just so awful.

The Emmy-winning Netflix series seems to shapeshift yet again and keep us guessing. The Stranger Things drought feels all too real at the moment.
