Chirs Hardwick Allegations

Just before the weekend, comedian and television personality Chris Hardwick had some serious allegations tossed his way when ex-girlfriend Chloe Dykstra penned a detailed and disturbing essay laying out his pattern of emotional and sexual abuse throughout their three-year relationship. For his part, Chris Hardwick denied these allegations in an official statement, but that hasn’t stopped AMC from taking action while they “assess the situation.”

AMC has pulled the second season of Talking with Chris Hardwick, which is hosted and produced by the comedian, from their schedule. Furthermore, the network says the comedian and host is stepping down from moderating panels for both AMC and BBC America at San Diego Comic-Con next month. Read More »

Annabelle Creation Review

(This review originally ran following an early screening at Comic-Con. Annabelle: Creation is in theaters today.)

While sequels tend to have trouble measuring up to the originals, in the horror world, there are plenty of occasions in which a follow-up, no matter how deep into the franchise fans have gone, turns out to be a surprisingly satisfying entry into its canon. In the case of Annabelle: Creation, we’re handed a sequel that runs circles around the original, both as a quality film and as a gruesome, terrifying piece of horror storytelling.

atomic blonde trailer

One of the panels that went overlooked at San Diego Comic-Con amidst all the major news and trailers from the rest of the convention was Entertainment Weekly‘s own “Women Who Kick Ass” panel. Usually, the panel features an ensemble of tough, badass women from movies and television, but this year’s panel focused on just one: Charlize Theron.

With Atomic Blonde in theaters this weekend, Charlize Theron continues to proved that she’s a certified action star. As Theron said during the panel, she sought out the movie herself because she wanted a very specific movie to play with, a movie where she could play a character who was “unapologetic and can play by the same rules as men.” Atomic Blonde is definitely that movie, and it opens up a possible franchise where Charlize Theron can keep returning as the secret agent over and over again.

Along with discussing the future of Atomic Blonde with Entertainment Weekly senior writer and panel moderator, Sara Vilkomerson, the actress also talked about a possible follow-up for Mad Max: Fury Road, what she thinks of the suggestion that she be the next James Bond, one of her proudest moments on screen, and what she wants to see from future female characters in movies.

Rocko's Modern Life - Comic-Con TV Trailers

We’re still recovering from the insanity that is San Diego Comic-Con. Because there are so many movies and TV shows that get promoted at the massive pop culture convention, we simply don’t have the time to report on each and every one of them by attending all the panels that unfolded. But we still wanted to highlight some of the big shows with new footage to show off for fans.

So we’ve rounded up a slew of new trailers for upcoming TV shows, both returning and new programs, ranging from revivals of Nicktoons like Rocko’s Modern Life and Hey Arnold! to freshman shows like The Orville and Future Man, returning shows like Once Upon a Time and Doctor Who, and plenty more Comic-Con TV trailers from the 2017 convention.

westworld season 2 trailer

Update: Fresh off the first trailer from Comic-Con, HBO has announced that Westworld season 2 will arrive in the Spring of 2018. Not exact date has been given yet. Our original Comic-Con post, complete with the new trailer, continues below.

***

Westworld season 2 has only been filming for a week, but that didn’t stop HBO’s ambitious science fiction series from bringing a few minutes of footage to Comic-Con 2017. After a panel that was mostly about fun banter amongst the assembled cast and a steadfast refusal to comment on the upcoming second season in the slightest, it all wrapped up with a cryptic teaser and a release year.
