Back to School Reality Series

If you thought Rodney Dangerfield didn’t get any respect before, just wait until you hear how MGM is using one of the comedian’s classic movies for a television series.

Back to School is a 1986 comedy following the comedian as a millionaire who enrolls in college with his son in order to keep him from dropping out. Of course, wild antics and hilarity ensues on the college campus. Since Hollywood is remaking everything else these days, you would think that the movie would be ripe for a big screen remake. But instead, MGM Television is turning Back to School into an unscripted documentary series that will follow parents who have decided to go back to school at the same university as their kids.

spider-man horror movie

Spider-Man continues to be a beloved film figure, with the character swinging back into theaters next month with Spider-Man: Far From Home. But things could’ve gone a lot differently for the big screen adventures of everyone’s favorite wall-crawler. Because back in the 1980s, there was almost a Spider-Man horror movie directed by none other than Texas Chain Saw Massacre filmmaker Tobe Hooper.

hulu original content

Now that Disney is in charge of Hulu, you can expect even more original content from the Emmy-winning streaming service. Following their 21st Century Fox acquisition, Disney holds a controlling stake in Hulu, which apparently gives the platform more incentive to boost its original content output, which includes award-winning titles like The Handmaid’s Tale, The Looming Tower, and more.

Amityville 1974

To paraphrase the original film, for god’s sake, stop making Amityville Horror movies. When you include direct-to-video titles, there have been 23 films based on The Amityville Horror. And if you add documentaries to the mix, that number gets even higher. The story has been told, and told again, and again, since the 1970s. Surely, there’s nothing more to say, right?

Wrong! There’s a new Amityville Horror movie headed our way – Amityville 1974, which will serve as a kind of prequel for the original Amityville Horror. Of course, 1982’s Amityville II: The Possession was also a prequel, but I guess we can just pretend that didn’t happen.

Ghostbusters Optimus Prime

Earlier this year, we got word that there would be a Ghostbusters and Transformers crossover in a limited comic book series from IDW Comics in honor of both franchises celebrating their 35th anniversaries. Not only would characters in both franchises meet, but the signature Ghostbusters vehicle, the Ecto-1, is being turned into an Autobot called the Ectotron. However, that’s not the only Transformers and Ghostbusters crossover character we’ll see this year.

Coming to San Diego Comic-Con this year as an exclusive release will be a Ghostbusters x Transformers set that has Optimus Prime turned into the Ecto-35, a semi-truck made to look like it belongs to the Ghostbsuters. It’s…weird. Read More »

y the last man tv show

FX has been developing a TV adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s acclaimed comic series Y: The Last Man for years, going as far as to commission a pilot that was picked up to series earlier this year. That seemed like great news, but the stumbles for this property continued: a few months ago, the series lost showrunners Aida Mashaka Croal and Michael Green due to “creative differences;” thankfully, FX decided to continue moving forward with it anyway.

The search was on to find a replacement, and now that search is over: Eliza Clark, who previously worked on Animal Kingdom and The Killing, has been hired to take over as the new showrunner. Read More »

daredevil prison fight

The cancellation of Daredevil was one of the biggest losses for Netflix this year, but at least it went out with a bang. A comic book series that had become synonymous with gripping, backbreaking fight sequences — and started the whole Netflix-Marvel hallway fight trend with its first Oldboy-inspired season 1 fight — Daredevil outdid itself in its third and final season with a rousing 11-minute fight sequence done entirely in one long take. But the reason that the Daredevil prison fight was so amazing may just be its downfall. According to showrunner Erik Oleson, that epic Daredevil prison fight won’t be eligible for a stunts Emmy because it’s just too damn long.
