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. Check out the Gallery 1988 Clue artwork after the jump! Read More »

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.

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 »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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.

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 »

But if you’d like to have just a little something to tide you over, there’s more info via a new True Detective season 2 synopsis, and a premiere logline and some episode titles. Oh, and in case you’ve missed them, there are a couple short new video promos, too. Read More »
