Get Out Golden Globes

What began as an amusing piece of awards season news has blown into a much larger conversation. Jordan Peele‘s Get Out, one of the best and most financially successful movies of 2017, has been categorized as a comedy by Hollywood Foreign Press Association. That means that it will qualify in the “Best Comedy or Musical” category at next year’s Golden Globes, should it earn the nomination. That’s a weird fit for a horror movie, albeit a horror movie with plenty of comic relief.

Naturally, the internet had a lot of say about this, and now Peele himself has joined the conversation.

A movie based on the X-Men character Multiple Man is in the works at 20th Century Fox and the Oscar-nominated actor is on board to star.

hotel transylvania 3 trailer

What happens when Dracula needs to get away from it all? If “he goes on a cruise” wasn’t the first thing to spring to mind (and it shouldn’t have been, because, well, sunlight), then you may be surprised by the Hotel Transylvania 3 trailer, which is all about the world’s most famous vampire and his extended clan going on a vacation.

the strangers prey at night trailer

Hey, remember The Strangers? The 2008 home invasion horror movie received mixed reviews from critics, but it was a financial success, grossing $52 million at the domestic box office against a $9 million budget. The rules of the horror genre suggested that a sequel should have followed in 2009 and that we’d be on the direct-to-VOD The Strangers Part 8 by now. That’s how this is supposed to work.

Instead, the sequel is finally arriving next year, a decade after the first movie hit theaters. The first The Strangers: Prey at Night trailer is here, but is it too late?

Christopher Tolkien Resigns

Even as the Lord of the Rings movies garnered critical praise, made billions of dollars, and won fistfuls of Oscars, one man was very unhappy with the films: Christopher Tolkien. The son of author J.R.R. Tolkien was an outspoken critic of Peter Jackson’s take on his father’s fantasy novels and, as the director of the Tolkien estate, stood in the way of other Middle-Earth-centric stories being told on the big and small screen.

But now, Christopher Tolkien has resigned as director of the Tolkien estate and that means more movies and shows (and possibly projects beyond that) set in this legendary fantasy world may come to pass.

Titanic Re-Release

It’s been 20 years since James Cameron‘s Titanic broke office records, melted hearts, and swept the Academy Awards. To celebrate this milestone, the film is returning to theaters for a limited run next month. And since this is a James Cameron re-release, you know what that means: some fancy technology will be involved to help sell this as a proper event. In this case, that means the film is being presented in “Dolby Vision” and will be screened in both 2D and 3D formats.

deadly class first look

Deadly Class is the latest comic book to make the jump from the page to screen and Syfy could have a real winner on their hands. Rick Remender and Wesley Craig’s soul-searing tale of high school life in an academy for young assassins has been one of my favorite comics since it debuted in 2014, and a first look at the television adaptation’s cast reveals a group of kids who are in for a very rough couple of years.

Get Out Golden Globes

Get Out, the smash hit horror satire that may very well be the best film released in 2017, could be a dark horse awards contender. After all, this is looking like a weak year for prestige pictures and a critically lauded, bold-as-hell vision could sneak in through the cracks. It’s possible!

And if it does sneak in through the cracks, the Golden Globes will treat it as a comedy.

mario movie

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.

Danny McBride co-writing a new Halloween movie with Superbad director David Gordon Green sounds like a joke, but the Vice Principals star is taking this thing very seriously. In a new interview, McBride spoke about making the series scary again, getting Jamie Lee Curtis to return, and trying to honor a series beloved by so many. That last one is admittedly tricky when you’re literally ignoring every single movie in the franchise except the original, but hey, if there’s one horror series that needs emergency surgery to stay alive, it’s Halloween.
