time bandits tv series

Terry Gilliam is a cinematic genius, but he’s also a cinematic genius who wronged a sorcerer in a past life or something. His battles with movie studios are the stuff of legend. The movies that have literally fallen apart around him are too many to count. And then the internet went and falsely reported his death. If Gilliam’s own movies didn’t present a self-awareness about the absurdity of existence and cruel unfairness of life, it would be easy to fear for his sanity.

Could his salvation come via the small screen? We already knew he had a deal in place with Amazon, but now Gilliam has revealed that he’s working on a TV version of his 1981 comedic fantasy Time Bandits. Maybe things are finally looking up for the most cursed of filmmakers.

Check out Gilliam’s own comment on the Time Bandits TV series after the jump.

The Final Girls poster

This weekend brings a wonderful meshing of horror and comedy with some real heart in the form of The Final Girls. The meta flick takes Taissa Farmiga and throws her into the world of the horror movie that her mother (Malin Akerman) made famous, making for a reunion that is simultaneously thrilling, touching and hilarious. It’s like Last Action Hero, but way better.

And to help get the word out about this seriously incredible movie that will be in limited theaters and available on VOD starting Friday, October 9th, we’ve got an exclusive batch of character posters designed by Alex Pardee, the brilliant artist who has delivered awesome work for The World’s End and Attack the Block previously.

Plus, if you need anymore convincing (other than the awesome trailer), director Todd Strauss-Schulson checked in with us to make sure you know that this movie is all about. And if that’s not enough, we had a great interview with him back in August that you should definitely take the time to read. Otherwise, check out The Final Girls posters below! Read More »
