Sarah Wayne Callies in Trailer for Horror 'The Other Side of the Door' It was never meant to be opened. Fox has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming horror thriller The Other Side of the Door, starring Sarah Wayne Callies (from "The Walking Dead", Into the Storm) as a grieving mother desperate for emotional closure after her son is killed in a freak accident.

Ron Howard On Why He's Turned Down The Chance To Direct Superhero Movies Director Ron Howard has dabbled in sci-fi and fantasy with the likes of Cocoon, Willow and Splash, but over the course of his illustrious career he's yet to take the helm of a comic book/superhero movie - and it's not because he hasn't had the opportunity. During his appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Howard revealed that he'd been approached by George Lucas do direct Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace - along with Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis, incidentally - but managed to convince him that he was the only man for the job (thanks for that, Ron).

The official logline says the movie “follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions” which sounds about right.

Meanwhile, Marvel’s “Ant-Man” has hit Blu-Ray after earning $518 million worldwide at the box office.

Within the Disney Pixar universe, the highly anticipated The Incredibles 2 (working title) is still a long way off. Over three years, in fact. The sequel to the 2004 smash hit Incredibles won’t arrive in theaters until June 2019, but progress is already well underway on the project.

Announcing the news via his Twitter, Bird tweeted a gif of the composer signing his new contract.
