L.A Confidential TV Series

There’s only one problem when you cast Walton Goggins. Once he shows up, you spend the rest of the movie/show waiting for him to come back. Thankfully, CBS’ upcoming small screen take on L.A. Confidential won’t have that problem – he’ll be playing one of the lead characters.

Child's Play TV Series

All horror icons grow old, stop being scary, and eventually vanish into the ether. It’s just the circle of life. It happened to Freddy Krueger. It happened to Jason Voorhees. It happened to Michael Myers (although that new movie may have something to say about that). But Chucky? The kids’ doll possessed by the soul of a psychopathic criminal? He’s somehow kept on trucking. And now, the little guy’s killing spree will continue on the small screen in a new Child’s Play TV series.

The Lighthouse

Willem Dafoe is a treasure. A frequently terrifying, shapeshifting treasure. The instantly recognizable character actor broke the mold with his Oscar-nominated turn as an amicable motel manager in The Florida Project, but you can’t keep Dafoe away from all things creepy and unpleasant. He’s now set to star in The Lighthouse, the new film from the director of The Witch. Sounds like a match made in heaven. Or hell. Both apply here!

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge images

Update: Disney has denied that Hollywood Studios is undergoing a name change. Their statement, and our thoughts, have been added to the original article below.

The Hollywood Studios Park at the Walt Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida has been undergoing a bit of an identity crisis over the past few years. It’s a park in transition. The new Toy Story Land opens in a few months. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge arrives in a few years. Until then, giant swaths of the park are a construction site. It’s a collection of attractions at the moment, not a theme park with a unified idea connecting the disparate parts.

So a new name feels like the right option, and we’ve known that one was coming since August of last year. And now it looks like Disney has decided on a new name for Hollywood Studios – Disney Cinemagine Park.

Weiss.

mario movie

Updated: Tonight, Nintendo confirmed that a Mario movie is indeed in the works:

Our original story from November 2017 follows.

The last time Mario and Luigi leapt across the big screen, they were played by Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo in a 1993 live-action film that set the stage for the many, many bad and misguided video game adaptations to follow. But maybe live-action was just the wrong fit for the famed video game duo. Maybe animation is the right track.

A new Super Mario Bros. movie could come our way via Illumination Entertainment, the company behind Despicable Me and The Secret Life of Pets. All Nintendo needs to do is sign on the dotted line.
