new stephen king movies

Sooner or later, someone might want to consider launching a Stephen King streaming service. Because there are already a plethora of King adaptations out there, and it seems that every day, something new gets announced. Just last week, a new adaptation based on a short story from King’s recent collection If It Bleeds was announced. Now, two other adaptations pulled from that book are in the works: Rat, which is being developed by Ben Stiller, and The Life of Chuck, which hails from Darren Aronofsky. And there’s a third adaption that’s a possibility as well.

unsolved mysteries ghosts

I quite enjoyed Netflix’s Unsolved Mysteries reboot, but I had one specific complaint: it needed more ghosts. One of the hallmarks of the original Unsolved Mysteries were episodes devoted to ghostly encounters, and sadly, the first six episodes of the revival had zero (it did have a UFO episode, though). Thankfully, it looks like the next six episodes – which don’t have a premiere date just yet – will include at least one episode devoted to the supernatural, although it’s going to be “unusual,” according to executive producer Terry Dunn Meurer.

servant seasons 3 and 4

Servant, the spooky slow-burn Apple TV+ series from M. Night Shyamalan, has already been renewed for a second season. But has it been renewed beyond that? It sure sounds like it, at least according to Shyamalan. According to the filmmaker, a writer’s room for Servant season 3 and season 4 has already been assembled. And while this may not mean Apple TV+ has officially given an order for those seasons, it confirms that Shyamalan and company are planning ahead.

Hong Kong Disneyland closing

After reopening on June 18, Hong Kong Disneyland is shutting down again due to a new COVID-19 outbreak. The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort hotels, however, will remain open with an adjusted level of services. This is the latest setback for Disney – they had to delay reopening Disneyland in California, and they’re currently facing heavy scrutiny for reopening Disney World in Orlando, despite a huge spike in coronavirus cases in Florida over the last several days.

mothra twins

Remember Godzilla: King of the Monsters? It was the most recent entry in Legendary’s MonsterVerse, and it introduced a whole slew of new kaiju creatures alongside Godzilla, including Mothra. In the original Mothra films, Mothra was accompanied by two tiny twins who spoke for the gargantuan moth. That wouldn’t exactly fly in the serious, gritty MonsterVerse, but director Mike Dougherty did manage to have a version of the Mothra Twins in his film – albeit in a truncated form. In a recent Instagram post, Dougherty revealed we would’ve gotten another glimpse of the twins as part of an unfilmed post-credit scene.

quarantine stream the devil's advocate

(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 Movie: The Devil’s Advocate

Where You Can Stream It: Netflix

The Pitch: Hot-shot Southern lawyer Keanu Reeves gets recruited to join a big New York City law firm, but there’s a catch: his new boss, Al Pacino, is the devil!!!!!!!!!!

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: It’s okay to have fun with dumb movies. And The Devil’s Advocate is pretty damn dumb. Keanu Reeves uses a questionable Southern accent, Al Pacino chews the scenery so hard he’s in danger of breaking some teeth, and a pre-fame Charlize Theron is stuck in a mini Rosemary’s Baby remake, and all of this happens in the same movie. Clocking-in at an overwhelming 144 minutes, and featuring scenes where Pacino dips his fingers in holy water and causes the water to boilThe Devil’s Advocate is a blend of legal drama and horror melodrama, and it’s a hoot.

Tom Hanks on wearing masks

Everyone, please wear a mask when you go out into the world. I know it’s inconvenient. I know you’d rather not. But it’s just common sense. And more than that, it’s necessary. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Instead, listen to America’s dad, Tom Hanks. Hanks was one of the first prominent figures to catch the coronavirus, and he’s fed-up with people shunning masks. And if the guy who played Sully isn’t enough to convince you, maybe you’ll listen to Bill Nye. He’s a science guy, after all.

Mr. Harrigan's Phone

The Stephen King adaptation renaissance shows no signs of going away anytime soon. Since King is so prolific and pumps out approximately a bajillion books a year, there will always be material to adapt. Case in point: Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, a short story that appeared in King’s recently published collection If It Bleeds, is now becoming a Netflix film. Blumhouse and Ryan Murphy are producing the flick for Netflix, with Saving Mr. Banks filmmaker John Lee Hancock attached to write and direct.
