steven soderbergh rejection

If you’re struggling with job rejection after job rejection in your 20s, don’t worry. Rome wasn’t built in a day, nor was Steven Soderbergh an indie darling director immediately after he joined the film industry. It took work, and rejection by one of the top movie studios of the day.

In April 1984, Soderbergh was an aspiring 21-year-old filmmaker scraping by as a game show scorer and a freelance film editor. But in an effort to break into Hollywood, he decided to send a demo reel of short films shot on Super 8mm to Lucasfilm. They rejected him. And Soderbergh still has the letter.

unreal season 3 trailer

After a nearly year-long delay, Lifetime’s UnREAL is coming back onto our TV screens.

The darkly comic send-up to reality TV was nominated for a few Emmys in its first season and became one of the breakout shows of 2015, but it has been plagued by so many of its own behind-the-scenes conflicts that the drama in front of the cameras seemed demure by comparison. But after a really, really deep sophomore slump, UnREAL is revamping itself for its third season, boasting new showrunner Stacy Rukeyser and its first female “suitor.” Let the games begin.

afterlife with archie

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! With the kids trick or treating and everyone telling you to be of good fear! It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Halloween has become as big as Christmas. From excessive decorations to Hallmark cards and holiday parties, the reign of the Pumpkin King is encroaching on Santa Claus’ good cheer. Although we have horror films a’plenty, movie fans may be looking for something a little more this year. Something to read when the sun goes down. Something to keep the seasonal spirit alive between slasher flicks and ghost stories.

So how about some great horror comics? From science fiction to the occult to zombies to just good ‘ol Halloween fun, we have got you covered. And most importantly: these series all stand alone, so you don’t have to do the kind of back-breaking research that often goes hand-in-hand with superhero comics. Just pick a title that sounds good and dive right in.

Enter at your own risk and in the words of the Mistress of the Dark herself: “Unpleasant dreams!”

Michael Jackson's Halloween

Some of you might associate the late Michael Jackson with the Halloween season thanks to the King of Pop’s legendary music video for “Thriller,” which was famously directed by John Landis and featured not only some memorable choreography, but excellent makeup effects. But a new CBS special called Michael Jackson’s Halloween could make you rethink that association. A trailer for the special has come online, and strap in, because you’re not going to believe that a major television network is going to broadcast this for millions of people.

Bright Featurette

After a detour into the superhero genre, David Ayer is back to making gritty cop dramas — but with a twist. The End of Watch director brought some of his Suicide Squad stars on board for his Netflix film Bright, which combines Ayer’s buddy-cop sensibilities with some of the supernatural elements he played with in his DCEU film.

Because you know the only thing missing from a buddy-cop movie are orcs.

Dark Tower sequel

As deep into the Stephen King renaissance as we are now, it’s easy to gloss over the little blip over the summer that was The Dark Tower.

Highly anticipated by King fans and Idris Elba fans alike, The Dark Tower opened to meager box office returns and even worse movie reviews. Trouble had been brewing long before it was released in theaters — Nikolaj Arcel‘s adaptation of the series that King has called his “magnum opus” had a slim 95 minute run time — and fans were skeptical over whether the incredibly dense, decade-spanning novels could be condensed into one movie. Turns out they were right. But that doesn’t stop Elba from keeping his hopes up for a sequel.

Laura Dern The Last Jedi

Laura Dern‘s Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo was nowhere to be found in the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But before the Dern fanatics out there (and let’s face it – everyone should be a Dern fanatic) get too upset, it’s important to note the Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico and Benicio del Toro’s DJ were also nowhere to be seen in the new footage. When it comes to new characters, the latest chapter of the Skywalker saga is keeping its cards tucked close to its vest.

But if your Laura Dern sense just tingled, it’s because of a new image of the actress as the pink-haired Resistance leader has arrived online and you can check it out below.
