Gargoyles

In the mid-1990s, Walt Disney Television produced an animated series called Gargoyles about a group of creatures that were turned to stone during the day but protected New York City by night. A stylistic successor to Batman: The Animated Series, the show featured darker storylines than were typically found in animation of that era and gained a cult following. Its small but loyal fan base has been clamoring for a movie version for years, and now it appears that one of Hollywood’s hottest directors wants to direct one.

A new report says Jordan Peele, who won an Oscar for writing last year’s cultural phenomenon Get Out, has actually pitched a new movie take on the animated series to Disney. Read more about the possible Jordan Peele Gargoyles movie below. Read More »

wendell and wild

It’s been three years since the final episode of Key and Peele aired, but we still feel the hole left by the near-perfect sketch comedy series. We could hope for a reunion special or maybe even a revival, but with its creators/stars Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele currently killing it in Hollywood, that’s unlikely.

But a Key and Peele reunion is in the works, even if it’s not in the form you’d expect. The duo are teaming up as the voice actors in Netflix’s Wendell and Wild, a stop-motion animated feature to be directed by Coraline and Nightmare Before Christmas director Henry Selick.

oscars 2018 speeches

The 90th Academy Awards showed a Hollywood at an impasse.

With the industry in the midst of a sexual and political upheaval, Tinseltown’s most glitzy awards ceremony found itself grappling with its message. The result: an overlong, messy Academy Awards ceremony that swung between self-congratulatory nods to the Time’s Up movement and cheery apolitical, made-to-go-viral stunts.

But a few 2018 Oscars speeches salvaged the show. Fiery remarks and inspirational anecdotes helped galvanize the ceremony and make the four hour-plus TV event worth watching.

2018 Independent Spirit Awards Winners - Get Out

With the Oscars just around the corner, it’s almost time to wrap up awards season. But before Hollywood has its biggest night, the Independent Spirit Awards always take the time to honor some of the smaller, indie movies. In this case, some of these movies have already made quite a run during awards season, were distributed by a major studio and ended up with a bunch of Oscar nominations, but they were also independently financed.

The 2018 Independent Spirit Awards winners were announced Saturday night, and Get Out came away with the big prize for Best Feature. In addition, Jordan Peele won Best Director. But the film wasn’t able to come away with Best Screenplay. Instead, that honor went to Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird. Check out the rest of the 2018 Independent Spirit Awards winners below.

Jordan Peele's new movie

Practically every aspect of Get Out, Jordan Peele‘s directorial debut, has been dissected and analyzed during its year-long trek from opening in theaters to becoming a multiple Oscar nominee. Peele has been in videos pointing out easter eggs and addressing fan theories, and classes are being taught about his film.

The Director’s Guild Of America awards have already been handed out, giving Guillermo del Toro one of several major victories on his path to potentially (and seemingly likely) winning Best Director at the Academy Awards.
