Fox News is probably the most nefarious, hypocritical news network out there (deal with it), and it’s largely thanks to the despicable men who helped make it the conservative-leaning media giant that it is today. No one deserves more credit for the degradation of cable news than Roger Ailes, and the story of his takedown from the empire he helped create is about to be told in a new movie called Bombshell from director Jay Roach.
Bombshell follows Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman as former Fox News personalities Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson and the story of how they fought back against the sexual harassment and chauvinistic behavior of Roger Ailes, who will be portrayed by John Lithgow. The first Bombshell trailer has arrived, and while it’s a short glimpse at the movie, it’s also extremely effective in how it creates intrigue and tension, even if it doesn’t entirely lay out what the movie is actually about.

Sylvester Stallone never wanted the fight that was brought to him as veteran John Rambo in the 1982 film First Blood. But when it comes to Rambo: Last Blood, he’s out for vengeance, and he has no problem finishing a fight that he once again didn’t start, especially when a surrogate family member gets taken by some dangerous men.
A new Rambo: Last Blood trailer has arrived, and it calls back to that first incident in the small town Hope, Washington (as well as the other sequels). We see footage from the first movie cross cut with what appears to be Rambo’s last mission. Will he survive this last face-off, or will he get a send-off in the same way that Wolverine did in Logan?

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark has an intimdating legacy to live up to. The collection of horror stories by Alvin Schwartz has been beloved by nearly four decades of children, with tales that are terrifying enough to be kid friendly but also bring a fright. A big part of what made these books so successful (and controversial) are the inky, grotesque illustrations by Stephen Gammell, and the crew of the film adaptation went to great lengths to recreate those illustrations in real life. You can see how they did it with the character known as “The Corpse” in the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark make-up featurette below. Read More »
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is a title a simple as it is effective — it warns of the unknown lurking in the dark while crooking a finger to invite you in. “Listen, at your own risk,” Alvin Schwartz‘s collection of scary stories for children seems to say, welcoming only the most daring of thrill-seekers. But more than just a mere compilation of scary campfire stories, Schwartz’s three-book collection of urban myths and legends has transcended the oral histories of its stories to become a cultural giant in its own right. Stephen Gammell’s drawings grotesque and ghostly illustrations helped cement the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books, published between 1981 and 1991, as staples of many a horror lover’s childhood.
André Øvredal‘s feature film adaptation of Schwartz’s beloved children’s books is heavily inspired by the Gammell’s macabre drawings, so unnervingly so that one could mistake this as a horror film for a much older audience. But Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is very much geared toward a younger audience, one that will surely embrace the film as a classic for a new generation of horror lovers. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark effectively captures the primal horror of campfire stories while doing justice by Schwartz’s creepy designs in a marriage of old-fashioned practical thrills and sleek modern effects.
