tom welling's superman

Smallville was a few years ahead of its time. Since the show wrapped up its run back in 2011, the “Arrowverse” has exploded in popularity, incorporating Supergirl, The Flash, Green Arrow, and several other comic book heroes into the mix, leaving Tom Welling‘s version of Clark Kent as just a faded memory.

But now fans will get to see Welling reprise his role as Superman in Crisis on Infinite Earths, the huge five-part crossover event series which marks the most ambitious thing The CW’s superhero shows have ever done. This will be the third Superman in the crossover, alongside Tyler Hoechlin from Supergirl and Superman Returns star Brandon Routh playing the Kingdom Come version of the character. Get the details below. Read More »

One Cut of the Dead release date

This year’s Fantastic Fest is officially underway in Austin, Texas, but one of last year’s big festival hits will finally be available to stream very soon.

One Cut of the Dead, the Japanese zombie comedy that written, edited, and directed by Shinichiro Ueda, is a low-budget indie that won the Audience Award and Best Director at the 2018 genre festival, and ended up earning more than 1,000 times its budget in Japanese theaters. After hearing genre fans gush about the movie for a full year, thankfully it’s finally going to be easily accessible on the horror-centric streaming service Shudder starting next week. Read More »

texas chainsaw massacre sequel

After 2017’s disappointing prequel Leatherface, it looked like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre film franchise may have closed its tool shed for the last time. But it looks like the ol’ saw has been gassed up and the door has just been kicked open once again, because a new report says we’re getting another Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel, this time in the vein of what David Gordon Green and Danny McBride did with last year’s Halloween movie. Here’s what we know about the project so far. Read More »

Tango and Cash 2

In 1989, Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell joined forces in a buddy cop action film called Tango & Cash, in which they played a pair of police officers who were framed for murder. The film was excessive, frequently ridiculous, and totally over the top – a last gasp of the macho 1980s action era before we transitioned into the (slightly) more reasonable ’90s.

And because Stallone is intoxicated by the notion of revisiting practically every memorable character he’s ever played, now he’s talking about a possible Tango and Cash 2. But apparently Kurt Russell is a bit more hesitant to jump back in and play the hits again, so it seems unlikely that this one’s going to come together any time soon. Read Stallone’s comments about the potential sequel below. Read More »

Star Wars Schedule

Earlier this summer, Lucasfilm announced that three new as-yet-untitled Star Wars films will be released every other year starting in 2022. And while we can speculate about what exactly those movies will be, the company has still not officially revealed which films are going to be taking those slots.

In a new interview, Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson says Lucasfilm is “still figuring out” its game plan, and he leaves the door open for the possibility that he might be able to make another original movie before filming begins on the first entry in his upcoming Star Wars trilogy.

Disney Apple merger

Rumors about a Disney Apple merger swirled for years, but thanks to Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger, we now know that a deal between the two companies was likely to actually happen – if, that is, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs didn’t die back in 2011.

Vanity Fair published an excerpt from Iger’s upcoming autobiography, “The Ride of A Lifetime: Lessons From 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company,” in which Iger talks about the probability of the two companies joining forces, something that clearly would have had huge ripple effects across the entertainment industry.

Tinder original series

Netflix. Amazon Prime Video. Hulu. DC Universe. Shudder. The Criterion Channel. Vudu. CBS All Access. We’re already practically drowning in streaming services, and we haven’t even seen the official launches of AppleTV+, Disney+, HBO Max, Quibi, or Peacock yet.

Without Remorse cast Bell Turner-Smith

Update: Variety reports that Queen and Slim star Jodie Turner-Smith has also been added to the cast. She’ll play Karen Greer, “a possible love interest to Jordan’s character.” In the Tom Clancy literary universe, Admiral Greer (played by James Earl Jones in three movies and Wendell Pierce in Amazon’s Jack Ryan series) recruited both Jack Ryan and John Clark/John Kelly. Karen Greer could be a relative, although she doesn’t appear in the books or previous movie/TV adaptations. Our original story from September 17 continues below.

While most of us would probably rather forget that Fox’s 2015 Fantastic Four film exists, we’re about to see two of that movie’s cast members reunite. Former Ben Grimm/The Thing actor Jamie Bell is the latest to join the Without Remorse cast, meeting up with former Johnny Storm/The Human Torch actor Michael B. Jordan, who’s leading the new spy thriller for Paramount. Learn about Bell’s role in the upcoming film below. Read More »
