The Irishman Netflix

Martin Scorsese‘s upcoming gangster movie The Irishman has traveled a long and difficult road toward production, but it’s finally come together at Netflix. The film will star heavy hitters like Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel, Ray Romano, and Bobby Cannavale, and it features digital de-aging techniques that will allow those actors to play characters across multiple decades.

In a new interview, De Niro spoke about why Netflix was the only proper way to go for The Irishman, and his reasoning involves one vitally important factor: money.

J.J. Abrams anthology series

J.J. Abrams doesn’t waste his clout. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens director backs some talented filmmakers and even once oversaw a 4K restoration of the cult horror classic Phantasm. Abrams and Bad Robot did the restoration out of love for director Don Conscarelli’s work. Now, Abrams is collaborating with another filmmaker he admires, B-movie icon Larry Cohen, who directed It’s Alive and The Stuff. The two of them are developing an anthology series at the moment.

Below, learn more about the J.J. Abrams anthology series in the works.

slasher things

The Demogorgon is a truly terrifying monster that the kids from Stranger Things had to defeat, but what if they faced off against your run-of-the-mill slasher villain? It wouldn’t be pretty — we’re talking violence, strong language, adult content— all things that may be a bit too mature for the 11-something kids who saved the day and Will Byers.

While we may not get a guy with a chainsaw chasing the kids around Hawkins, this spoof of the Stranger Things trailer imagines what it would be like if the small Indiana town was terrorized by Jason from Friday the 13th or Pennywise the Clown from It. Unsurprisingly, it matches up perfectly.

The Bureau For Paranormal Research and Defense will fight the creatures that go bump in the night once again in Neil Marshall‘s Hellboy reboot, now simply called Hellboy. Some new details have emerged about the comic book adaptation, including who’s a part of B.P.R.D. this time around. Abe Sapien is on the team, of course, but so is someone who can listen to the dead and a scarred military-type with a dark secret.

American Horror Story Cult opening credits

Producer Ryan Murphy has never been one to shy away from controversial topics in the television shows and films he’s worked on, whether in Nip/Tuck, Glee, Feud, or American Crime Story.

Game of Thrones behind the scenes video

Last night’s Game of Thrones episode, entitled “Beyond the Wall,” featured yet another ambitious battle scene as Jon Snow, Tormund Giantsbane, Ser Jorah Mormont, and a few other fan-favorite characters went on a mission in the icy wastelands north of Eastwatch-by-the-sea and faced off against the Night King’s army of the dead.

And much like they did after this season’s “The Spoils of War,” HBO has now released an in-depth behind the scenes video that details the tricky techniques the production used to achieve many of the episode’s biggest and most explosive moments. This should go without saying, but there are obviously huge spoilers for last night’s episode in this video, so consider yourselves warned if you haven’t caught up. Check out the detailed video below.

Death Note Clip

This weekend brings another Netflix original movie to the streaming service, and it might be their most controversial yet. Death Note is an American adaptation of the famous manga of the same name, and while there has been some backlash about the whitewashing of the cast, it sounds like the most offensive thing about the movie is the fact that it doesn’t do anything fresh with the material to justify it. There’s nothing explicitly American about this new take on Death Note from director Adam Wingard other than focusing on a mostly white cast in a condensed adaptation that lacks any of the substance of the original.

Check out what some of the early Death Note reviews have to say below. Read More »

how to talk to girls at parties trailer

Elle Fanning continues her electric career playing precocious teens on the cusp of sexual awakening with her role as the eccentric love interest in How to Talk to Girls at Parties — but with a twist. This time, Fanning is an alien newly indoctrinated into 1970s’ London’s punk rock scene.

Based off of Neil Gaiman‘s short story of the same name, How to Talk to Girls at Parties marks director John Cameron Mitchell‘s return to feature films after a seven-year hiatus. Now it seems like Mitchell will be swiveling from the morose tone of his last film Rabbit Hole, and recapturing the oddball effervescence of his earlier film, Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
