This weekend, as you sit at home with your families, eat turkey, watch football, maybe head out and see The Force Awakens trailer, the executives at Warner Bros. are going to be doing something even better. They’re going to be reading the script to Guillermo del Toro‘s Justice League Dark, aka Dark Universe.
The director confirmed he and his team have completed the team up script, which will feature Swamp Thing, The Demon, John Constantine, Deadman, The Spectre, and others and turned it into Warner Bros. If they like it, we may be seeing the film sooner rather than later. Read more about the Justice League Dark script below. Read More »

Warner Bros. has been trying to craft a new film adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel The Stand for several years. The studio has gone through a roster of writers and directors, but last year finally landed on The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone to write and direct.
Boone is a life-long fan of Stephen King, and has been pretty forthcoming with some comments about The Stand. Now, what was originally seen as a single-film adaptation has now expanded into something much bigger. Because WB likes the prospect of selling an event movie series rather than one single long dramatic horror movie, The Stand is now planned as a four-film series. Read More »

In our line of work, there are days when we get discouraged. Like the ones where yet another studio announces it’s building a Marvel-style universe, or the ones where we spend three hours watching some $200 million movie only to realize it feels exactly like the last three $200 million movies we saw. It starts to feel like there’s nothing new under the sun, and we might as well stop caring.
But we wouldn’t be doing this if there weren’t even more days that made us rejoice in the movie business, and made us excited to see where things are headed next. Not all trends are bad, even if we’ve complained about some of our least favorite ones in the past. After the jump, check out 10 movie and TV trends we love. Read More »
The Woman in Black was something of a surprise success — the old-school supernatural thriller had the advantage of surprise, and of Daniel Radcliffe in one of his first post-Potter roles. Radcliffe and the surprise factor are not a part of the sequel, but there’s still a serious creep factor in The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death, as a bus full of kids fleeing the Blitz in London arrive at the supernaturally dangerous Eel Marsh House. (And the film is called Angel of Death, which should be enough to generate some interest.) Check out the full-length Woman in Black 2 trailer below. This is a much different trailer compared to the one we saw last month. It is more focused and much more compact — it’s one of my new favorite one-minute edits.

CBS Films has been trying to crack the popular children’s book series, Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, for a while. Originally, they brought on Saw writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton to pen a script. Evidently their take wasn’t what the company wanted. CBS has now gone back to square one and hired a writer who knows a little something about blending the tones that made these books so popular. John August, writer of Go, Charlie’s Angels, Big Fish, Corpse Bride and Frankenweenie, has been hired to write a new script for the scary series of short stories. Read more about the Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark movie below.

What’s a Friday the 13th without Jason, a Nightmare on Elm Street without Freddy, or a Scream without Ghostface? Well, we have no idea about the first two, but we’re about to find out about the last one.
Last month, word got around that MTV’s Scream TV series would not involve the iconic Ghostface mask. Instead, we’ve now learned, it’ll debut a more “organic” new mask. Meaning it’ll possibly be made of flesh. Ew. More details on the Scream TV series mask after the jump.
