Stephen King easter eggs

We’re less than two weeks away from the release of The Dark Tower, the (hopefully) first film adaptation of Stephen King‘s multi-novel magnum opus. Our own Jacob Hall will have a full interview with director Nikolaj Arcel here on the site in the coming days, but during their Comic-Con chat, Arcel teased that The Dark Tower will contain easter eggs reference King’s 1975 novel Salem’s Lot, and we’ve seen in previous trailers that there are references to The Shining, It, and more.

Today, a brief new teaser for The Dark Tower debuted at Entertainment Weekly and it highlights even more Stephen King easter eggs that the film has in store for us.

Thor Ragnarok is 80 percent improvised

After two Thor films that rank pretty low on my personal list of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, I never imagined I’d be excited to see Thor: Ragnarok. But hiring director Taika Waititi to put a comedic spin on these characters seems to have paid off in a big way for Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios, and based on the Comic-Con trailer that was released this past Saturday, Waititi has put together a colorful, unexpected sequel that should turn a lot of heads when it comes out later this year.

You might think that a blockbuster film of this size would need to be rigid and strictly structured to meet its release date, but in a new interview, Waititi says that Thor Ragnarok improvised 80 percent of the film. Plus, The Shawshank Redemption actor Clancy Brown has been added to the movie’s cast. Find out who he’s playing below, and read more of Waititi’s comments about his approach to making this eye-popping sequel.

Twin Peaks part 11 review

(Each week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Twin Peaks: The Return by answering one question: what was the best scene of the episode?)

Every once in a while, co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost craft an entry of Twin Peaks that’s emblematic of the series as a whole, simultaneously full of everything that often makes it intriguing and frustrating in equal measure. This week’s episode fits that mold, and thankfully the intriguing aspects outweighed the frustration this time around. This show is a perpetual see-saw, and each viewer’s personal tastes dictate our ability to keep riding it.

Read on for our Twin Peaks part 11 review.

Unlocked trailer 2

It’s been a long time since the original Bourne trilogy, and terrorism thrillers – even last year’s continuation of that franchise, Jason Bourne – don’t have quite the same appeal that they used to. I don’t know if it’s because we’re too far from the events of September 11, 2001, or if these movies can sometimes feel too fresh because we’re sadly never far enough from the latest devastating attack somewhere in the world, but a low-level B-movie about preventing a terrorist attack doesn’t feel like the norm anymore. And it feels especially weird when when a movie like that, in this case a film called Unlocked, is directed by an acclaimed documentary filmmaker like Michael Apted (the Up series).

Triple Threat trailer

If you recognize the names Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, and Tiger Chen without looking them up, then your day is about to get a whole lot better: the three martial arts movie stars (who appeared in films like Ong-Bak, The Raid, and Man of Tai Chi, respectively) have teamed up for a new action movie called Triple Threat, and the first trailer has arrived. This is the Avengers of modern martial arts films.

If you don’t know these guys’ names and you’re a fan of bone-crunching action movies, allow this to be your introduction to what this group of cinematic badasses is all about.

Gambit movie

It’s been two years since Channing Tatum took the Hall H stage at Comic-Con 2015 to take a photo with the massive assemblage of X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool cast members during 20th Century Fox’s panel. Now, in the midst of Comic-Con 2017, we’re not much closer to seeing him suit up as the card-throwing Cajun mutant Gambit.

The film has experienced a revolving door of directors over the past year or so, and now Tatum says that the movie’s script is being reworked in the wake of the success of unconventional X-Men film like Deadpool and Logan. Get the latest info on the long-brewing Gambit movie below.

Y The Last Man TV Show

An adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra‘s sixty-issue comic book series Y: The Last Man has been in the works for years –  first as a movie and then, thankfully, as a TV show, which is a much better fit for the sprawling tale.

But the show has been in the works at FX for a long time now, so what’s up with the delay? According to writer/showrunner Michael Green, you can blame the 2016 presidential election for the long wait.
