Gargoyles

In the mid-1990s, Walt Disney Television produced an animated series called Gargoyles about a group of creatures that were turned to stone during the day but protected New York City by night. A stylistic successor to Batman: The Animated Series, the show featured darker storylines than were typically found in animation of that era and gained a cult following. Its small but loyal fan base has been clamoring for a movie version for years, and now it appears that one of Hollywood’s hottest directors wants to direct one.

A new report says Jordan Peele, who won an Oscar for writing last year’s cultural phenomenon Get Out, has actually pitched a new movie take on the animated series to Disney. Read more about the possible Jordan Peele Gargoyles movie below. Read More »

Watchmen TV show

HBO’s Watchmen TV series has been filming in Macon, Georgia for a little while now and the sets haven’t exactly been a secret. We’ve already seen some photographs of the alternate world the show is creating, which exists in the same superhero-filled and science fiction-tinged timeline we visited in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ rightfully iconic comic book miniseries.

But a /Film reader who lives in Macon snapped some new photos of the re-dressed city and what’s on display is…interesting. Very interesting. And especially interesting if you’re familiar with the source material. Naturally, these images should be considered potential spoilers until we know more, so consider this your one and only warning.

The newest trailer for Amazon’s upcoming series gives us a glimpse of Jack Ryan before he becomes the Jack Ryan, the CIA agent created by Tom Clancy and immortalized by every Hollywood Action It Boy from Alec Baldwin to Harrison Ford to Ben Affleck to Chris Pine. Now, Krasinski takes up the mantle. His Jack Ryan begins as a timid desk jockey who gets roped into a dangerous covert mission in Yemen that he never signed up for.
