Before he became James Bond, Roger Moore graced the small screen as The Saint, aka Simon Templar, a thief and master of disguise who originated in a series of books in the 1920s and quickly expanded into the world of radio, comics, TV, and movies. Val Kilmer played the character in a film in 1997, and now, more than twenty years later, it looks like Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt will be the newest actor to get buried under loads of makeup and don a fake mustache as “the Robin Hood of modern crime.” Read More »

Sometimes there’s no better theme park than the one that exists in our imagination. Paramount Picture’s new animated movie Wonder Park takes that sentiment and runs with it. It’s about an imaginary park that comes to life! There’s a talking bear! And something called a “chimpanzombie!” The new Wonder Park trailer delivers everything a magic-loving theme park enthusiast (probably) wants in an animated movie.

A rumor about Guardians of the Galaxy actor Chris Pratt taking over the mantle of Indiana Jones from star Harrison Ford first popped up in 2015. Since then, Pratt has both denied the rumor and later acknowledged it, basically leaving the door open to the possibility should anyone at Disney or Lucasfilm come calling with an actual offer for him to play the whip-cracking archeologist.

WWII-era body horror is not a crowded subgenre. The blood gets thinner when you account for quality. But even though German Nazism has been tied to the occult since long before Indiana Jones tried to stop them from getting the Ark of the Covenant, it’s not that surprising that jackbooted sci-fi horror isn’t more popular. I mean, the point of making grisly schlock on the cheap is to keep it cheap, and war – even the fictional kind – isn’t cheap.
It’s that arena Julius Avery’s Overlord has jumped into. Once rumored to be another sneaky entry into the Cloverfield franchise (Cloverlord?), the action horror hybrid sends a handful of shaky soldiers into a fortress where Nazis are secretly doing…something…to people. Unfortunately for the paratroopers, they’ve gotta battle Hitler’s horde and the beastly things their scientists have unleashed.
So, let’s unleash six movies to double-feature with Overlord.
