The Shining Sequel

Mike Flanagan, who recently helmed the excellent Stephen King adaptation Gerald’s Game for Netflix, has another King project he’d like to tackle: Doctor Sleep.

The Dark Tower failure

After years in development, the film adaptation of Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower hit theaters earlier in 2017 and proceeded to disappoint everyone.

In all official statements, Paramount setting a release date for the new Pet Sematary surely has nothing to do with It grossing nearly $700 million worldwide earlier this year. But come on, let’s get real. We’re going to see a whole bunch of new Stephen King adaptations arrive in the next few years and they’re all going to be chasing that sweet, sweet It money.

You can’t beat something tangible, folks. Or maybe you can. But I’m going to hold onto this stubborn belief as long as humanly possible!

This week’s Blu-ray roundup features Kathy Bates breaking a leg (or two), a killer Santa Claus, Kirsten Dunst getting high, a goofy yet inventive space adventure, the best performance of Robert Pattinson’s career, and Jeff Goldblum doing his Jeff Goldblum thing. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.
