Ready Player One co-star Lena Waithe made a splash a couple years ago as the first black woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for Aziz Ansari’s Netflix series Master of None. Now she’s making her feature writing debut with Queen and Slim, a new drama that turns Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya and newcomer Jodie Turner-Smith (Nightflyers) into the black Bonnie & Clyde. But there’s much more to this movie than two criminals on the run. Watch the Queen and Slim trailer below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »

The Lion King is poised to help Disney rule the summer box office all over again when it arrives next month. While the visuals have been nothing short of stunning, especially with it comes to the photorealistic visual effects used to bring the animals to life, we’ve yet to really see the animals talk to each other, which has been a little worriseome. But that changes today.
The Lion King TV spot lets us see Mufasa (James Earl Jones) speaking to a young Simba. And on top of that, we get to hear a new rendition of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” sung by Donald Glover and Beyoncé Knowles Carter, the voices of the adult Simba and his childhood friend Nala. Read More »

Game of Thrones may be over, but our watch has not ended. The HBO series left us with plenty to think about, but as we slowly begin to assess the show’s legacy, we’re still hearing trickles of information from those who were involved about how the show could have been different. We’ll tackle some of those revelations below to avoid putting spoilers out in the open, but one thing I want to tease is that actress Lena Headey has confirmed a scene was shot involving Cersei’s miscarriage – a plot point suspected by some fans, but which ultimately wasn’t included in the show. Read on for more on the final season of Game of Thrones, as well as some updates on the upcoming prequel series. Read More »

Aldis Hodge and Harriet Dyer will join Elisabeth Moss and Storm Reid in the horror film, which is being directed by Leigh Whannell.

Even though Imagine Entertainment has tackled blockbuster family fare before with the adaptations of Dr. Seuss books How the Grinch Stole Christmas and The Cat in the Hat, they’ve yet to dive deep into animation. Sure, they’re the company behind the animated Curious George movies, but those were hardly huge hits. However, Imagine is hoping to beef up their animated content with co-founder Ron Howard‘s next project.
Ron Howard has dabbled with family films like How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Parenthood, but he’s yet to dive into that territory in animation. That will change with the director slated to be at the helm of an adaptation of The Shrinking of Treehorn, a children’s book from 1971 by Florence Parry Heide with illustrations from Edward Gorey. And that’s not the only animated project in the works at Imagine Entertainment. Find out more below. Read More »

Here’s a little extra creepiness for your weekend. Part of the Pet Sematary alternate ending is now available to watch online, and it’s disturbing to say the least. While I enjoyed the ending that made it to theaters, I can’t help but wish the film had stuck with this dark conclusion instead. To be fair, the theatrical cut’s ending is plenty dark – but in an almost playful way. This version is far more unsettling. Watch the Pet Sematary alternate ending below. And beware of spoilers.
