Black Water trailer

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren were action movie staples in the 1980s and 1990s, and the two have often shared the screen before – but they’ve always appeared as adversaries. But this year, the duo is finally going to be up on the same side in a new action thriller called Black Water. Anyone who grew up watching these guys blast their way through films like Universal Soldier and The Expendables 2 will probably perk up at the notion of watching these two truly team up for the first time.

Double Dare Reboot Host

Last month, we found out Nickelodeon was bringing back their beloved game show Double Dare. The game show and several varying iterations that followed it focused on two teams competing to win prizes by answering trivia questions and partaking in super messy physical challenges. The new show will very much have the same format, but it will have a new host that Nickelodeon is bringing in from YouTube stardom.

Liza Koshy, best known for her YouTube channel with over 14 million subscribers, has been named as the Double Dare reboot host. If you’re one of those fans who was hoping Marc Summers would return as host, don’t worry. The former Double Dare host will return as a color commentator during the game show’s physical challenges.

unreal ending on hulu

When UnReal premiered on Lifetime in 2015, it felt revolutionary. Here was a pitch-black drama about the lurid behind-the-scenes conflicts of a Bachelor-style reality show, featuring two of the most fascinating and fearsome antiheroines on TV (played with withering contempt by Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer). Immediately, UnReal became a critical darling and a boon to Lifetime’s bid to be taken seriously in the oversaturated prestige TV market.

But then UnReal fell to its own behind-the-scenes conflicts. Co-creator Marti Noxon left series after its Emmy-nominated first season and the series suffered a bad sophomore slump. Attempts to restore the show’s creative potential mostly fell flat in its most recent third season, while ratings dipped even further. Now, the show that was once hailed as the “female Breaking Bad” will air its fourth and final season on Hulu.

As the UnReal final season makes its way to Hulu, let’s take a look at the show’s messy lows and its magnificent highs. Read More »

noblemen review

The New York Indian Film Festival played host to several Shakespeare adaptations this year. Among them were Bornilla Chatterjee’s The Hungry and Abhaya Simha’s Paddayi, relatively direct transpositions of Titus Andronicus and Macbeth, though unassuming upland bullying drama Noblemen decided to use the Bard more obliquely: as a moral backdrop for its twisted tale.

Set in a co-ed boarding school but focusing on boys in their volatile teen years, Vandana Kataria’s debut feature sees a Founder’s Day The Merchant of Venice production host a tale of mercy gone awry. It’s a nuanced piece that spirals into stomach-churning violence (more implied than overt, yet unflinchingly realistic) as the unique nexus of Indian Christian schooling and silent, deadly homophobia come to an explosive head.

George RR Martin Ice Dragon movie

We’re never going to get to read The Winds of Winter, are we?

George R.R. Martin, the author of the acclaimed A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy novels on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based, has seemingly found every excuse not to finish the next novel in that series and has instead been attaching himself to a variety of entertainment projects that pull him away from his writing desk. Now we can add a new one to the pile: a report says Martin is producing an animated movie adaptation of his children’s novel The Ice Dragon for Warner Bros. Animation.

idris elba the hunchback of notre dame

Idris Elba will be putting a sexier, modern-day spin on Victor Hugo‘s Gothic classic The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Elba will be directing, producing, and starring in The Hunchback of Notre Dame for Netflix in a movie that is described as a “sonic and musical experience.” But that’s not the best part — Elba, who is a pretty successful DJ when he’s not working as a Hollywood star, will also be producing original music for the feature.
