Wes Craven - Marvel - Will Smith

We’re enjoying an extended weekend thanks to Labor Day, so the Best Stories of the Week comes in a little later than usual this weekend. The blockbuster summer season has wrapped up, and the newsflow has slowed down considerably as a calm before the storm that is awards season, but we’ve still got some good stuff worth checking out.

This past week brought a casting shortlist for Ready Player One, news of Nickelodeon looking to revive some of their 90s Nicktoons, some big changes at Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, some power restructuring at Marvel Studios and the unfortunate passing of Wes Craven.

As far as trailers go, we’ve got a tease of the BBC TV movie The Gamechangers with Daniel Radcliffe, a new look at Goosebumps, Eddie Redmayne shooting for another Oscar in The Danish Girl, Will Smith‘s football drama Concussion and more.
