31 trailer

I once described the “Love Hurts” sequence from the 2007 remake of Halloween to my wife and she honestly thought I was making it up. I have rarely been so annoyed (or seen an audience so irritated) than after a SXSW screening of Lords of Salem. So it’s some kind of testament to Rob Zombie that I remain interested in him as a filmmaker and have every intention of seeing his newest movie, 31…which looks like something a team of comedians would have cooked up if they were tasked with creating a parody of a Rob Zombie movie.

The new (and NSFW) 31 trailer hits all of the checkmarks: evil clowns, big unkept beards, roles for actors from cult-favorite genre movies, excessive gore, sets that look like they’re pulsating with infectious disease, and an overall griminess that threatens to shoot an STD straight into your eyeballs. But hey, at least Zombie has an anesthetic. Not every horror filmmakers can claim that.

Shut In trailer

If there was one thing we learned last Oscar season, it was that Jacob Tremblay is basically the cutest kid ever. He was endearing in Room and even more adorable on its press tour, winning everyone with his tiny sharp suits and gleeful Star Wars fandom. But now he’s using his wide-eyed innocent schtick for evil.

Shut In stars Tremblay as Tom, a boy traumatized by the loss of his parents. He catches the attention of Mary, a psychiatrist (Naomi Watts) who’s reeling from a car accident that killed her husband and left her teenage stepson (Stranger Things‘ Charlie Heaton) in a catatonic state. But after Tom disappears under Mary’s care, things take a turn for the creepy. Oliver Platt also stars. Watch the Shut In trailer below.  Read More »

King Arthur TV Series

King Arthur is having a moment. Next year sees him getting the Guy Ritchie treatment in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and cozying up to alien robots in Transformers: The Last Knight. Now we may also see him hit the small screen, albeit in a slightly different form than we’re used to. Fox is developing Camelot, which reimagines the legendary medieval ruler as a graffiti artist(!) who teams with his cop ex-girlfriend Gwen(!!) to battle modern crime and ancient magic(!!!).

commercial free CBS all access

I haven’t subscribed to the new CBS All Access streaming platform yet, but I will. In fact, I know exactly when I will give them my credit card number: in January 2017, when Star Trek: Discovery premieres and becomes available exclusively through this new service. Yes, CBS – you got me hook, line, and sinker with this dastardly plan of yours and I know I’m not alone.

However, everyone now has a second option for when they sign up for CBS All Access to try out the new Star Trek show. In addition to the regular plan, CBS has announced a slightly more expensive plan that will allow you to use the service without advertisements. Mostly.

It looks like Game of Thrones landing Ian McShane for a guest spot in season six was just the beginning of a welcome new trend. The extraordinary Jim Broadbent has joined the cast of HBO’s still popular, still excellent fantasy series and will play a “significant” role in the seventh season.

Ghostbusters Extended Cut

Even though we’ve heard that a Ghostbusters sequel is unlikely after the box office numbers were analyzed a little more closely, there’s a chance the home video release could help convince Sony Pictures otherwise. Plus, when the reboot hits home video, we’ll be getting a different cut of the movie as an extended cut has been confirmed to be on the home video release, as teased by director Paul Feig a little while back.

The film has officially been given the title of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, which appeared at the end of some of the trailers and the movie once it hit theaters, as you can see in the cover art. You can check that out after the jump along with the list of special features and the release date for the Ghostbusters extended cut on Digital HD as well as Blu-ray and DVD. Read More »

Luke Cage

Much has been made of Luke Cage‘s hip-hop influences. Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker has talked up the “musicality” of the series, comparing the 13 episodes of season one to tracks on an album and promising big-name guest stars from Faith Evans to Charles Bradley. So ahead of the series’ fall debut, Netflix has released a Luke Cage featurette that digs into this particularly unusual element of their next Marvel show.

Coker and his star Mike Colter make appearances as talking heads, of course, and they’re joined by Method Man and A$AP Ferg and Luke Cage music supervisors Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad. Watch the Luke Cage music featurette below.  Read More »
