A Series of Unfortunate Events teaser trailer

UPDATE: Alas, the A Series of Unfortunate Events teaser trailer has been revealed as a fake. Original story follows.

Last year, we got the very fortunate news that Netflix was fast-tracking a series based on Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. For fans, that meant a second chance to see the beloved books brought to life, following the little-loved 2004 movie starring Jim Carrey.

It’ll be a little while yet before we see if this attempt pans out any better than the last one did. But the first promo, at least, is very promising, with a deliciously creepy vibe that should feel familiar to book readers. Watch the A Series of Unfortunate Events teaser trailer after the jump.

Secret in Their Eyes (5)

You could argue that Juan José Campanella‘s 2009 Argentinian thriller Secret in Their Eyes didn’t really need an English-language remake, and you’d probably be right. But as far as unnecessary remakes go, this one actually looks pretty promising.

Directed by Billy Ray (Shattered Glass), the new Secret in Their Eyes stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman, and Julia Roberts as three FBI colleagues whose lives were torn apart by a brutal murder. Many years later, Ray (Ejiofor) gets a lead that could finally resolve the case, only to uncover something even more destructive. See the Secret in Their Eyes trailer and images after the jump.

Gallery 1988 Clue artwork

This year marks the anniversary of several movies, including the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, the 40th anniversary of Jaws and the 25th anniversary of Gremlins 2: The New Batch. But there’s another film that may not be quite as celebrated, but deserves to be honored for its 30th anniversary this year: the murder mystery comedy Clue.

Based on the classic board game of the same name, the film brings to life the strange and perplexing murder mystery that keeps getting worse as the stormy night carries on. If there’s one piece of evidence to show that adapting a board game into a movie can work, it’s Clue. And Gallery 1988 is paying tribute to the movie with a collection of fantastic, original artwork.

Wayward Pines season two

Is anyone out there watching M. Night Shyamalan and Chad Hodge‘s TV series Wayward Pines on Fox? The series debuted about two years after it was picked up by the network, and while it didn’t do so well when it premiered up against the season finales of The Blacklist and Scandal, it’s actually found a decent audience since then.

But while the live numbers weren’t anything to write home about, Wayward Pines gained a record percentage DVR lift of 90% for a 1.9 rating, which isn’t bad at all. In the weeks since, it’s actually gained a consistent viewership (especially after DVR numbers come in), but that could get shaken up if the show may get a second season with a whole new cast.

Dark Places

Mad Max: Fury Road co-stars Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult reunite under very different circumstances in the first U.S. trailer for Dark Places, based on the bestselling novel by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl).

Theron plays Libby, who as a child survived a horrifying incident that left her mother and two sisters dead. Her testimony pegged her brother as the killer, sending him to prison for life. But 25 years later, Libby is approached by true-crime obsessive Lyle (Hoult), who forces her to reexamine what happened on that fateful night. Watch the Dark Places trailer after the jump.

Bermuda Triangle movies

The Bermuda Triangle, that decades-old center of odd aeronautical and oceanic lore, is now the focus of multiple films at different studios. The Caribbean area that has been said to be a mysterious danger zone for planes and ships is a great location for a thriller, especially because factors as varied as alien influence and Atlantis are used to explain the supposed disappearance of various craft.

Earlier this year, Universal set a team to work rewriting a Bermuda Triangle movie pitch that had been sitting at the studio since 2012. Now the Triangle has snared Skydance, the company behind Paramount efforts such as Terminator: Genisys and the recent Mission: Impossible films, as well. Read More »

The Leftovers Season 2 Teaser Trailer

I wasn’t immediately taken by The Leftovers when I watched the pilot on HBO, but over the course of the first few episodes the show really grabbed me. Created by Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta, the show has a very cool mystery set-up (set two years after 2% of the world’s population mysteriously disappeared) but focuses more on the characters and drama (and even though I think the character focus works here better than in Lost, I’m still drawn more to the mysterious twists). The Leftovers season 2 teaser trailer has been released by HBO and can be watched now after the jump. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

new X-Files series

The truth is out there on social media. The X-Files revival is shooting now, with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back in action as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Images from set over the past few days have shown unremarkable sights such as chairs marked for the actors, and an impossible-to-read script page. Today, however, Fox offered up something good: a monitor, showing an image of Mulder and Scully. Read More »
