Star Trek: Discovery loses showrunners again; Alex Kurtzman to take over It would be safe to say that Star Trek: Discovery suffered from some growing pains. In addition to the numerous delays, the Star Trek series lost showrunner Bryan Fuller a year into development due to disagreements with CBS. Fuller was replaced by Gretchen J. Berg and Aaron Harberts, who shepherded Discovery through its first season, but now THR is reporting that Berg and Harberts are out as well... Read More...

It’s a rare miss for the 54-year-old star, who has a reported 16 films to his name that have grossed over $100 million prior to last week’s release of the flagship movie for a hopeful Universal franchise. Take the misfortunes of his Hollywood colleague Johnny Depp, who suffered five consecutive misfires (namely “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” “Black Mass” “Mortdecai,” “Trans

The Mummy Director Defends The Dark Universe; Hypes Frankenstein Director Alex Kurtzman is defending the Dark Universe and hyping The Bride of Frankenstein as his film The Mummy opens to mixed audience reactions and poor reviews domestically. In late 2015, Universal Pictures started putting together in earnest what recently became known as its Dark Universe, rebooting classic monster movie titles made famous by the likes of screen legends Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney, Jr, yet setting the characters in a shared universe.
