DC’s ‘The Flash’ Is Getting a Page-One Rewrite

Ezra Miller as The Flash in Justice League

Last year, Warner Bros.’ The Flash lost not one but two directors, as first Seth Grahame-Smith and then Rick Famuyiwa dropped out. Instead of racing to find a new one, though, the studio is using this as an opportunity to take things in a new direction. Joby Harold, the scribe behind the studio’s upcoming King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, has been tapped to do a page-one rewrite of the script.  Read More »

Better Call Saul Season 3 - Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring

Better Call Saul hasn’t exactly been subtle with its hints that Breaking Bad baddie Gus Fring would come knocking in the very near future. Last week, they went so far as to release a Los Pollos Hermanos “commercial” featuring Giancarlo Esposito back in character. But it’s only now they’ve finally gone and made it official. Yes, Gus Fring will be in Better Call Saul season 3 — and it sounds like he’ll be giving Mike Ehrmentraut (Jonathan Banks) something to chew on.

The first Better Call Saul clip, however, has nothing to do with chicken or drugs or Gus Fring whatsoever. Instead, it checks in on Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), who seem to be feeling a little awkward about the way things went down in season two.

Twin Peaks premiere date

The return of Twin Peaks has been shrouded in mystery, and not just the odd, surreal Lynchian kind. Up until now, we’ve had little idea about when the show would premiere or even how many episodes we’d get. But today at their TCA session, Showtime shared the first crumbs of information we’ve had about Twin Peaks in a good long while, including an exact release date and episode count.  Read More »

When Will the Han Solo Movie Hit Theaters?

han solo release date

With occasional exceptions for an Avatar or a Lord of the Rings, December has not traditionally been a boom time for blockbusters. More often, summer is when the big-budget spectacles come out in full force. But you may have noticed that the past two winters have been absolutely dominated by Star Wars — and we have every reason to believe Episode VIII will repeat the trick in 2017.

No surprise then, that a new rumor claims Disney is thinking of sticking with that Christmas corridor, instead of shifting to summer with 2018’s Han Solo spinoff as originally planned. More about the Han Solo release date rumor below.  Read More »
