Vampire Chronicles TV series

Bryan Fuller just went and got himself attached to another TV series, and this time, the pairing is perfect. Fuller is now on board the upcoming Vampire Chronicles TV series, adapted from the books of Anne Rice. Fuller’s Hannibal was as much an adaptation of The Vampire Chronicles as it was the Hannibal Lecter series, so this is a decision that makes perfect sense.

chris hemsworth star trek

One moment, you’re planning to boldly go back to the science fiction movie series that helped launch your career and the next…well, you’re lost in space. Chris Hemsworth knows as much about Quentin Tarantino’s planned Star Trek movie as you do, which means “not much.” Surely, this doesn’t bode well for the original Star Trek 4 pitch, which involved the return of Hemsworth’s George Kirk.

Bumblebee Transformers photo

Update: A new high resolution version of the image has been released and we’ve added it below.

There’s a section in the song “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” that describes everyone dancing “in the new old-fashioned way,” and now the upcoming Bumblebee Transformers spin-off movie is putting its own spin on the concept of something being new and old-fashioned at the same time. A fresh photo from the film has emerged that showcases the title Autobot hero in his old-fashioned form as a yellow Volkswagen Beetle…but it’s also new, because we haven’t seen that character as anything other than a Camaro in a live-action Transformers movie yet. (Just go with me on this.)

Take a look at the new photo below, which also includes another look at the film’s human star, played by Hailee Steinfeld.

There Will Be Blood 10th Anniversary

At the height of a certain meme, you could name-drop There Will Be Blood and casual filmgoers would actually scrunch their noses and say, “Is that the milkshake movie?” In the intervening years, however, Daniel Day-Lewis’s powerhouse performance as Daniel Plainview has continued to cast a long shadow over cinema. In many ways, writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson’s oil drama/“milkshake movie” is actually a monster movie, with a dissonant score by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood and a title that deliberately invokes horror.

With Anderson and Day-Lewis re-teaming this Christmas for Phantom Thread, the time is optimal for a look back at this landmark 21st-century film. Anderson’s “friendly competitor,” Quentin Tarantino, who professed to like the exuberance of Boogie Nights over the formalism of There Will Be Blood, nonetheless rated the latter as “one of the best movies made” in the decade of the 2000s.

Let’s jaw about There Will Be Blood and the way it plays off themes in Anderson’s body of work. Let’s properly celebrate the There Will Be Blood 10th anniversary. Oh, yes. There will be spoilers.

Quentin Tarantino Star Trek R Rated

Update: Deadline has confirmed that Mark L. Smith will write Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek movie. This story is strange for many reasons, but it’s especially strange since Tarantino has always penned his own projects. Our original story continues below.

Earlier this week, news broke that Pulp Fiction filmmaker Quentin Tarantino would be joining the Star Trek franchise via an idea he pitched to J.J. Abrams. The news sounded almost too strange to be true, and that perhaps any moment we’d learn a mistake had been made. But now even more details about Tarantino’s Star Trek have arrived, including the revelation that the film will be R-Rated, per Tarantino’s stipulations. In addition to this news, The Revenant writer Mark L. Smith has emerged as the frontrunner to pen the script. Folks, this continues to seem very, very weird.

new Blu-ray releases

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

We’re almost there, folks! 2017 is almost at an end, and as we burn through the holiday season, it’s time to kick back and catch up on some new films you might’ve missed in theaters. That’s where good old Blu-rays come in. Yes, that’s right – there’s more to movies than streaming. Pretty sure I mentioned that before. I’ve put together a jam-packed new Blu-ray round-up for you to close out the year. There’s a lot of good stuff here, including one of Christopher Nolan’s best films; a polarizing horror movie from Darren Aronofsky; a surprisingly honest biopic; a harrowing Kathryn Bigelow drama based on a true story; yet another one of those dang Lego movies; a spy sequel; and a true crime miniseries. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.
