moviepass subscription dropped

Update: MoviePass has released a statement claiming that the numbers from Business Insider’s reports are false and that its parent company has not released any subscriber numbers.

For some strange reason, MoviePass has dropped 90% of its subscribers in less than a year. Weird, right? What mysterious explanation could there be for this massive decrease in subscriptions? I’m joking, of course. We all know the answer: the movie-ticket-subscription service imploded after leaking money like a siv. This resulted in a sudden change of rules and pricing, which in turn resulted in MoviePass friends to become MoviePass foes. And now here we are, with the company somehow still hanging on, but just barely.

rest stop movie

Her Smell director Alex Ross Perry wants in on the ongoing Stephen King adaptation boom. The filmmaker will write and direct Rest Stop, based on a King story of the same name. King’s tale follows a mystery writer who intervenes in an act of domestic violence unfolding at a rest stop. The story is very brief, and even a bit anticlimactic, so you can expect Perry to take some liberties with his adaptation.

the lodge trailer

The Lodge was one of the best films I saw at Sundance this year – a chilly, slow-burning nightmare that’s bound to give horror fans a jolt. What makes this creeper so effective is how unpredictable it is, which means you might want to go into The Lodge with as little info as possible. That said, the first trailer for the film does an excellent job being vague, while still selling the dread-inducing atmosphere on display. Watch The Lodge trailer below.

stranger things trial

As Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer head to trial over plagiarism charges, they’re worried about something worse than litigation: spoilers. Charlie Kessler is suing the Duffers, claiming they stole the idea for their hit Netflix series from a script he wrote. The Duffers deny this. In addition to fighting to prove their ownership of the show, the Duffers are also hoping to avoid Stranger Things season 3 spoilers from getting out due to the trail, and have brought a motion to seal portions of the record to stop this.

A new Toy Story 4 TV spot is here, and it’s loud. It features all our old familiar toy-friends: Woody, Buzz, and so on. It looks about what you might expect, and then, holy crap!

With Murder on the Orient Express, director and actor Kenneth Branagh loaded the cast with famous faces and impressive actors, all in the name of bringing Agatha Christie’s mystery to life. Branagh clearly wants to repeat this approach with the sequel, Death on the Nile. Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer and Jodie Comer already have parts, and now Black Panther breakout Letitia Wright has climbed aboard the Death on the Nile cast as well. Wright will play one of the suspects Branagh’s Hercule Poirot is investigating.

child's play trailer new

What if…the Child’s Play remake ends up being good? Fans of the franchise (like me!) were initially grumpy about this entire endeavor, but slowly and surely, the new film has worn has down. The cast is mighty impressive, and having Mark Hamill as the new voice of Chucky is a masterstroke. And then there’s the footage, which looks promising. Including the footage you’ll see in the new trailer below. While nothing can ever replace the original Child’s Play series, this new take on the material might end up surprising us all. Watch the new Child’s Play trailer below.
