One lucky winner will score the discs, which include a Hellraiser 4 movie collection Blu-ray, a Stephen King 5 movie collection Blu-ray, the 4K release of Shutter Island, The Haunting on Blu-ray, and more.

We’re less than two weeks out from the second season premiere of The Mandalorian on Disney+, and last night brought some new footage in a special look at the next chapter of the Star Wars series.

Film composer Michael Giacchino and Sir Paul McCartney, best known for an obscure rock group called The Beatles, have been working on an animated film together. Giacchino, who’s the Oscar-winning composer behind Up and Star Trek, is hopeful we’ll see the film one day. Unless we’re mistaken, the jovial composer is possibly alluding to a McCartney-Netflix project called High in the Clouds.

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)
The Series: Friends
Where You Can Stream It: HBO Max
The Pitch: Six attractive twenty-somethings struggle through life and love in New York City.
Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: Like many millennials growing up in the ’90s, I learned about sex through Friends. I didn’t quite understand all of their racy jokes or cheeky one-liners, but I thought it was so cool, so hip, so grown-up. Friends was like a fantasy of another place, populated by adults who had it together, or at least I thought so at the time. I know that it’s one of the most popular sitcoms of all time, and it has been “exposed” time and time again as being an outdated product of its time, but Friends still occupies a place in my heart as being that (still pretty funny!) fantasy of twenty-something life — the “fantasy” of which became even more clear when I found myself a twenty-something living in New York, around the same age as the cast of Friends was when the show first starts.

It’s Halloween, but since full-on parties are going to be few and far between thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, we’ll have to find other ways to enjoy this spooky holiday. If you’re getting sick of watching horror movies and TV shows at home, maybe you’ll want to mix it up with some gaming, and one of the more entertaining options might be playing the latest iteration of Call of Duty during The Haunting of Verdansk Halloween gameplay event, because two horror icons are getting in on the action.
Starting October 20 and running through November 3, Call of Duty is kicking off an in-game Halloween event adding some new gameplay modes in both Modern Warfare and Warzone game variants, along with a spooky new nighttime setting and Halloween-themed rewards. But the most surprising and ridiculous thing about this whole Call of Duty Halloween event is that Texas Chainsaw Massacre killer Leatherface and the terrifying Saw mascot known as Billy the Puppet will be new player skins, bringing the horror icons and some of their killer style into the multiplayer action.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The Gorge! It’s a new movie from Zach Dean, writer of a movie no one has even seen yet – The Tomorrow War, and while there is next to no info about this latest from Dean, I am legally obligated to write about it. What is The Gorge, you ask? Why, it’s a “high-action, genre-bending love story,” at least according to the source of the news. Is that enough for you? No? Well…uh…keep reading, I guess.

It feels like it’s been eons since Armando Ianucci‘s The Personal History of David Copperfield wowed critics at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and became one of the festival circuit darlings that the rest of us masses couldn’t wait to see. Then the pandemic hit and, well, you know the story. Disney has continually delayed the Searchlight Pictures film, which was originally set to hit theaters in May. But with the fall release schedule essentially done for, and theaters not looking to be back in business anytime soon, Disney is finally letting the rest of us get a dose of Ianucci’s offbeat comedy by setting a digital release date for this November.
