get out

The midnight secret screening at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival was probably the worst kept secret in the festival’s history: It was the premiere of Jordan Peele‘s directorial debut Get Out, a Blumhouse-produced horror movie that takes on the monster of racism in modern times. Imagine Meet The Parents mixed with The Stepford Wives. It’s smart, visceral, thrilling and, of course, funny.

M Night Shyamalan trilogy

UPDATE: Shyamalan has confirmed his plans to make a trilogy and we’ve added the new details below.

Now that some of you’ve seen Split this past weekend, we can now talk more openly about its third act and, more specifically, its fantastic ending. Are those last few minutes more than a wink and a nod? Will we see a payoff to Split‘s ending? If writer-director M. Night Shyamalan has his druthers, possibly.

Below, learn more about a possible M. Night Shyamalan trilogy (Split SPOILERS follow).

split ending

It should come as no surprise that M. Night Shyamalan‘s Split features a big twist. It’s kind of his thing. Everyone, even his fans, has poked fun at his penchant for Big Shocking Reveals, some of which work as stunning reversals and some of which fall flat on their face. The twist in Split is a weird one – for every person who sees it and loses their goddamn mind, there will be someone who has no idea what the hell just happened.

In other words, it’s the kind of thing that demands to be discussed. Huge spoilers ahead. Seriously. If you haven’t seen Split yet, I’d suggest not reading on.

split review

(This review originally ran after Split‘s first screening at Fantastic Fest 2016. It arrives in theaters today.)

Every filmmaker finds themselves in a rough patch every now and again, but few directors have had quite as public a rough patch as M. Night Shyamalan. It wasn’t enough that the immensely talented director of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs was stumbling with duds like The Lady in the Water and The Last Airbender – his name had become synonymous with disappointment for many moviegoers. He had become a punchline.

But now, it’s looking like Shyamalan has started to get his groove back. The Visit was one of last year’s more pleasant surprises and now Split, which held its world premiere as part of a secret screening at Fantastic Fest, has seemingly revealed his future going forward: he’s going to keep on making low-budget horror movies until someone tells him to stop. If his latest film is any indication, few people are going to tell him to stop anytime soon.

Pacific Rim 2 Set Photo

Right now, Universal and Legendary Pictures have Pacific Rim: Uprising (a new title that was announced last month) in production, and that means set photos have been cropping up online every now and then. Due to copyrights, we can’t really post any of them for you to see, but that changes today thanks to an Instagram post.

The Pacific Rim 2 set photo in question appears to reveal Star Wars: The Force Awakens co-star John Boyega on set wearing the signature Jaeger pilot suit that we’ve previously seen worn by Charlie Hunnan, Rinko Kikuchi and Idris Elba. Though it appears the suit design has been changed up a bit.

cult of chucky

In an age where seemingly every significant horror movie has been remade (or rebooted, pick your poison), there’s something to be said about the Child’s Play series continuing to pump out sequel after sequel to the original movie. You know, like proper horror franchise did back in the day. While the results have often been a little erratic, there’s something undeniably magical about a long-running series churning out movies at a fairly consistent pace over thirty years. After all, what are horror fans to do with their time if they don’t have movies to rank and compare and argue over into the wee hours of the night?

And that brings us to today’s news: Universal has officially announced the existence of Cult of Chucky, the seventh movie in the Child’s Play series the sequel to 2013’s Curse of Chucky.

Fifty Shades Darker Trailer

Sequels to romances are few and far between, but Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t your average romance. Based on E.L. James‘ erotic thriller of the same name, the film adaptation was a box office sensation pulling in over $571 million on a budget of just $41 million. However, the sequel Fifty Shades Darker isn’t just a result of the big box office, because there was a whole trilogy of books before the first movie even got off the ground.

Now a new Fifty Shades Darker trailer has arrived, playing to its prime target audience during the premiere of The Bachelor last night. The new trailer shows the next chapter of the romance between Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson), and it appears things are not only going to get kinky again, but also deadly.
