salem's lot reboot director

Gary Dauberman is ready to sink his teeth into Stephen King‘s iconic vampire tale Salem’s Lot. The filmmaker, who directed Annabelle Comes Home, and co-wrote It and It Chapter Two, will direct the Salem’s Lot reboot for producer James Wan. Released in 1975, Salem’s Lot was King’s second published novel, and concerned a small New England town overrun by bloodsuckers. The book served as the inspiration for a 1979 miniseries directed by Tobe Hooper, and still another miniseries that was released in 2004.

the batman production

The Batman is currently shut down due to the Joker, er, I mean the coronavirus pandemic. But director Matt Reeves is using this delay to his advantage, and fine-tuning his upcoming Dark Knight reboot. As Reeves puts it, this downtime will give him more of the prep time he wished he had right before they started shooting, so at least there’s one positive thing coming out of all of this.

The Dream Review

(The SXSW Film Festival may have been cancelled, but our coverage will go on with reviews of films and TV shows made available to our critics.)

It seems pilots about chasing the dream in Los Angeles were supposed to be hot this year at SXSW! But of all the TV shows about this idea, The Dream is the one that worked the best for me. The pilot follows Daryl (Micah Bijon) as he struggles to find his path right out of film school. How hard is he struggling? Well, we kick things off with his middle school-aged nephew giving him ten dollars for gas to ensure he can get home, get to work that day, and presumably collect him at the end of the day. Turns out college is expensive. Living in LA probably isn’t helping him out much either.

coronavirus and nostalgia

Nostalgia has been the dominant force in filmed entertainment for the entire 21st century. Superhero blockbusters brought childhood comic book reading sessions to life, a slew of remakes have repackaged animation into live-action for a new generation, and the rise of streaming has seen multiple services revive long-cancelled television titles in an attempt to cash in on viewers’ fond memories (while bolstering the services’ media libraries at the same time). Nostalgia has had an outsized influence on the media Hollywood produces, and thanks to the coronavirus, its reign seems poised to continue…and maybe even grow more powerful than ever. Read More »
