doug

If you were a kid growing up during the 1990s, there’s a big chance that the Nickelodeon animated television series Doug holds a special place in your heart. The kid’s network now airs some of their more classic series in a nighttime programming block called The Splat, which doesn’t include Doug. Doug creator Jim Jinkins even has ideas for another Doug movie, but we’ll sadly never see it. Find out what would’ve happened in the Doug sequel, if the title character ends up with Patti Mayonnaise and why a film isn’t going to happen, after the jump.

stranger things stephen king's it

If Stranger Things reminds you of Stephen King‘s It, it’s certainly no coincidence. And it’s not just because the Netflix television series is inspired by (and an homage to) It and the author’s other ’70s and ’80s movie adaptations. You might be surprised to learn the show itself is a result of the upcoming It movie. The Duffer Brothers created Stranger Things because Warner Bros. wouldn’t let them adapt the book themselves.

SUICIDE SQUAD

You’ve probably read by now the long and troubled story of Warner Bros.’ meddling with Suicide Squad, which included extensive reshoots and the studio testing an alternate cut of the film which more closely matched the tone of the popular marketing campaign. We don’t know how much of that is true, but cast members have hinted that there are a lot of scenes removed from the theatrical cut. So what is missing from the film? Let’s take a look at the rumored list of Suicide Squad deleted scenes, followed up with some quotes from director David Ayer and Joker actor Jared Leto.

Suicide Squad box office

Suicide Squad might be a mess of a film, bashed by critics and fans alike, but that hasn’t stopped moviegoers from buying tickets opening weekend. David Ayer‘s comic book adaptation had a huge opening weekend, earning a massive $135 million domestically, shattering the previous August US box office record (Guardians of the Galaxy has held the crown for two years with its $94.3 million opening in 2014). The film has also grossed over $267 million worldwide, but it will need three times that to break even. If the movie’s Saturday numbers are any indication, the bad word-of-mouth buzz for this film will only result in dramatic diminishing returns in the coming weeks. Let’s take a look at the Suicide Squad box office, after the jump.

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Trailer

I’m not sure about you, but I’ve really been enjoying Star Wars Rebels. Between the Season 2 finale and the Season 3 premiere (which I saw early at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016), it seems like things are getting a lot more intense. Season 2’s climactic finale “Twilight of the Apprentice” ended with Clone Wars favorite Ashoka Tano coming face to face with her former master Darth Vader and becoming trapped and possibly killed in the Sith Temple, while Ezra is left with a Sith Holocron and is feeling the pull to the dark side.

That’s some pretty dark ground for a family television series. So when I talked to Star Wars Rebels creator/showrunner Dave Filoni at Celebration, I was curious just how dark Star Wars Rebels could get. Could Filoni kill off a beloved fan-favorite character like Ashoka? Could the main character of this kid’s animated series actually be turned to the dark side? Find out what Filoni says, after the jump.

star wars rebels x-wings

At Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 I got a chance to sit down with Star Wars Rebels creator/showrunner Dave Filoni to talk about the future of the Disney XD animated series. I haven’t published the interview yet because I didn’t want it to get buried in the madness that was Comic-Con. But with San Diego behind us, let’s begin to take a look at some of the interesting bits that Filoni revealed.

Star Wars Rebels follows the Rebellion in the five years before Star Wars: A New Hope, but we’ve yet to see an X-Wing appear onscreen. So one of the first questions I asked Filoni is when we’ll finally see some X-Wings in Star Wars Rebels. Find out what he said about Star Wars Rebels X-Wings, after the jump.
