Each episode of the show will be inspired by one of the original books, complete with a “nostalgic nod to the 1990s” – the era in which the books originated.  We’re in the midst of the golden age of Stephen King adaptations. Could R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike adaptations be next? We can only hope.

The iconic television and movie franchise about women detectives is heading to the big screen once again, this time with a whole new cast of crime-fighting ladies and all new stakes to challenge them on a more epic scale.

Sony Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for the new Fantasy Island movie, based on the classic 70s TV show of the same name.

Ghostbusters 2020 Gets a New Title? New rumors suggest the upcoming Ghostbusters sequel from director Jason Reitman will be called something different when it hits theaters next year.

We all get a little extra-dimensional anxiety. But it’s only in HBO’s Watchmen series that there are whole support groups for people suffering from this affliction. One such member of one of these extra-dimensional anxiety support groups is Tim Blake Nelson‘s Looking Glass, who appears to take the spotlight in the Watchmen episode 5 promo for “Little Fear of Lightning.” Watchmen Episode 5 Promo Looking Glass is a little “weird,” as Regina King‘s Sister Night called him in the most recent episode of Watchmen.

Paul Thomas Anderson has decided to take a break from directing Haim videos and return to movies. Anderson has his first post-Phantom Thread feature already lined-up: a high school movie set in the 1970s. Anderson will write and direct the movie, which is set to begin production next year. This won’t be any ordinary coming-of-age high school flick, though. Instead, the premise will focus on a teen who is also a famous child actor. I know everyone is going gaga over Disney+ today, and that’s understandable.

Marvel posted a touching tribute to Stan Lee one year to the day after the comic book legend passed away.

Want Disney+ for Free? Here's How to Get It Disney+ launches this week and here's how you can get the new streaming service for free.

Community always played the long game with its jokes, but there’s one joke that it was never able to make good on. After the throwaway joke of “Six seasons and a movie!” became a rallying cry for the twice-cancelled comedy, fans have long wished for the feature film that would reunite the misfit study group and fulfill that mantra. It’s an idea that creator Dan Harmon has played with, and which the stars have supported, though it seems less likely as we get further away from Community‘s cult-show heyday.

Oscar-nominated filmmaker Leslie Iwerks is about to unveil her newest documentary. The Imagineering Story is a six-part documentary series which tracks the history and evolution of Imagineering in Walt Disney theme parks, and it serves as a sort of spiritual follow-up to her 2007 film The Pixar Story, which chronicled the genesis of that company and its eventual rise to creative dominance. But this series has a special resonance for Iwerks. Leslie is the granddaughter of Ub Iwerks, Walt Disney’s original business partner and the co-creator of Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

Marvel’s Animated ‘What If?’ Clips: Feast Your Eyes on a Zombified Captain America In addition to new costume designs for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Marvel Studios has also provided some new looks at What If?, the studio’s first animated series for Disney+ which will explore alternate realities inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Production on the six-episode series is expected to start shooting next… Read More...

It’s a beautiful day…to cry. Tom Hanks has never been more powerful than when he is inhabiting the role of Mr. Rogers, the beloved children’s show host who inspired generations of children.

Secret service agent Mike Banning is apparently not "too old for this shit."

Could Midi-chlorians return in The Rise of Skywalker? Audiences first learned about the Force when STAR WARS blasted its way into theaters some forty-two years ago. Alec Guinness' Obi-Wan Kenobi said of the Force, "The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us, it penetrates us, it binds the galaxy together." While most took that to mean the Force was a metaphysical/spiritual… Read More...

The Star Wars director puts up his dukes against those who have come to hate the franchise due to diversity.

You might not want to get rid of your The Simpsons Blu-rays and DVDs just yet. The long-running animated series is now streaming on Disney+, but here’s the problem: it’s in the wrong aspect ratio. The earlier – and best – seasons of the show have been stretched to a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, which inadvertently ends up cutting off chunks of the screen. This is a particularly irksome problem for The Simpsons because the show is chock-full of visual gags, and many of those gags are now being cropped out of the frame. The Simpsons is a show from a completely different era.

Blu-ray Review: Stalking Takes the Stage in THE FAN Out in 1981, The Fan was commericial director's Ed Bianchi's first film. Funny enough, it feels like a TV movie for the most part, which I suppose is fitting because he went on to work mainly in television on shows like Boardwalk Empire, The Killing, and Deadwood. The film stars a young Michael Biehn (Aliens, The Terminator, Tombstone) as Douglas Breen, a troubled man who is obsessed with Sally Ross, an aging actress (something we might not ever see committed to film again due to rampant ageism) played by Hollywood legend Lauren Bacall.

The spirit of H.G. Wells still possesses pop culture’s soul in modern times. The Invisible Man was first published in 1897 and has since inspired countless film adaptations, spinoffs, and homages. Next year, Leigh Whannell and Blumhouse will unleash their interpretation of an Invisible Man movie, and it looks like one of the most terrifying versions to date. The new movie will portray the titular monster (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) as an abuser who’s out to torment his ex-girlfriend (Elisabeth Moss).

It’s here. It’s finally happening. Rick and Morty is back, only 25 months after the season 3 finale. (But who’s counting?) It will be a short season, and as of now, only the first episode has been released to critics. But I’m exceedingly happy to report that it’s good. It’s very good. It shouldn’t be surprising. Rick and Morty is a fantastic show. But it’s been overshadowed, in some people’s minds, by a small vocal faction of fans.

In the latest Ordinary Adventures vlog, Peter & Kitra visit the 2019 edition of Disney’s Festival of the Holidays at Disney California Adventure. Their mission: to eat everything at the eight booths, and also consume some of the Holiday drinks as well. This means they had to eat 18 separate dishes over the course of one afternoon.

WB Animation has reigned for years as the preeminent purveyor of animated superhero TV and films but it looks as if Marvel Studios is about to rise to the challenge based on this What If...? footage.

Well, it looks like what's old is new again and this time what's new is the "Han shot first" debate, although now with more "Maclunkey!" What is "Maclunkey" you ask?

"How do you make sense of the senseless?" Kino Lorber & ABC Docs have debuted an official trailer for the documentary film After Parkland, which first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. In the aftermath of the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 people dead, filmmakers Emily Taguchi and Jake Lefferman traveled to Parkland and began filming with students who endured gunfire and the parents who lost their children in the crosshairs.

‘Hobbs and Shaw’ Honest Trailer: Idris Elba Takes On Two Buff Testicles The Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw closed out the summer with a lot of ridiculous action. It was too long for some, didn’t have enough “family” for others, but you really can’t say that it was anymore stupid than the rest of the Fast and Furious movies that have slowly become superhero movies with cars.

The Good Liar is the latest entry in a slowly expanding subgenre best known as They Don’t Make Movies Like This Anymore dramas. In a time of infinite intellectual property, of franchises and sequels and reboots, The Good Liar is a small oasis in a cinematic desert where once there was more frequent life. This literary adaptation is a nasty little thriller, anchored by two elder-statesmen performers whose presence alone likely willed this film into existence.
