Game of Thrones 15 million

We’ve written about how each of the episodes in Game of Thrones upcoming eighth season may be 90 minutes long, and now it sounds like HBO is giving showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss a big enough budget to make sure the show goes out with a bang.

gerald's game stephen king

Stephen King has been terrifying audiences since the 1970s, penning one best-selling horror novel after another, his name becoming synonymous with horror fiction in the process. Film and TV adaptations of King’s work have been prevalent just as long as he’s been publishing it, but recently there seems to be a Stephen King boom. More and more King-related projects are finding their way to the big and small screen. And that was before the adaptation of King’s It raked in boffo box office. With It making all that dough, expect even more Stephen King adaptations to be announced soon.

To help you keep track of all the upcoming King projects, either completed or in development, I’ve compiled this handy list. It’s worth noting that not all of these films will ever see the light o day. Indeed, some of them have already entered the infernal halls of development hell, and who knows when they shall ever escape. Then again, now that King is big business at the box office, there’s a good chance titles that have been stuck in development hell for ages will suddenly find themselves fast tracked.

Without further adieu, here is every upcoming Stephen King adaptation.

Jack Ryan TV show teaser

Update: A new Jack Ryan teaser has been released by Amazon ahead of the full teaser trailer premiere at New York Comic Con.

Shows about spies have been a near-constant presence on television since the medium’s early days, and while we’ve seen properties like Get Smart and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. make the jump to the big screen in recent years, Amazon is about to reverse that trend by bringing one of cinema’s biggest spies to TV. The company has just released the first brief teaser for Jack Ryan, based on the Tom Clancy-created character that’s appeared in five movies so far, and you can check it out below. But if you’re looking for your first glimpse at The Office star John Krasinski locked and loaded as the title character, you’ll have to wait just a little while longer.

Superman The Movie Extended

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a three-hour extended cut of Richard Donner‘s 1978 classic Superman: The Movie! But what’s it doing up there? Oh, I see now, it’s preparing for its long-awaited home video release later this year. Naturally.

Warner Bros.’ Archive Collection has finally decided to give Superman fans the chance to own this rare, newly-remastered extended edition for themselves, and considering how Henry Cavill’s modern cinematic interpretation of the Man of Steel isn’t exactly cheery, it seems like a great time to bring Christopher Reeves‘ smiling, unabashedly positive take on the superhero back into our lives.
