Gremlins in Theaters

Around the holiday season, plenty of cinephiles like to throw around the names of their favorite unconventional Christmas movies.

LEGO Dimensions Discontinued

It goes without saying that /Film is not a video game site. But whenever there’s news regarding video games with ties to our favorite movies and TV shows, we think it’s worth reporting. That’s why we’re here with a disappointing update from The LEGO Group regarding their building block multiverse in the video game LEGO Dimensions.

After creating a video game that combined the worlds of Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Jurassic World, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, The Simpsons, Back to the Future, Knight Rider and many more, The LEGO Group, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games have decided not to create anymore new expansion packs for the video game. Find out more below. Read More »

Ape Meets Girl Gremlins Print

Just over a week ago, we featured a round-up of some fantastic new artwork from Hero Complex Gallery that debuted at New York Comic-Con 2017. One of our favorites was a new piece from Ape Meets Girl (aka Kevin M. Wilson) paying tribute to Joe Dante‘s horror comedy Gremlins, and now we can offer you a much closer look at the print to see how much detail went into it for all you movie and TV nerds out there.

The Gremlins print by Ape Meets Girl is called “The Old Curiosity Shop,” named for the hole-in-the-wall antique market where inventor Randall Peltzer comes into possession of a mysterious creature called a Mogwai. While the shop in the movie was full of random antique goods from around the world, the shop as depicted in the Ape Meets Girl Gremlins print is full of Easter eggs from your favorite movies and TV show. There are 84 altogether, and not only can we can help you spot every single one of them, but we have high-resolution images and an answer key that make them infinitely easier to spot. Read More »

gremlins 3

After Gremlins 2 turned the original film on its head – with Leonard Maltin reviewing Gremlins 1 in the movie and Gremlins overtaking the projection booth until Hulk Hogan stops them – it seemed to be the last word on the franchise. Decades later, talk of Gremlins 3 is finally real and original screenwriter Chris Columbus has written a script.

Speaking with /Film about the festival hit Patti Cake$, which he produced, Columbus said his script asks a question which may have been on fans’ minds since the original: if all the gremlins come from getting Gizmo wet and feeding his mogwai offspring after midnight, should Gizmo be eliminated?
