The del Toro/DiCaprio team-up was apparently too good to be true. Leonardo DiCaprio was previously in talks to join Guillermo del Toro‘s return to directing, Nightmare Alley.

Doctor Sleep Q&A

Mike Flanagan, the director of Oculus, Hush, Gerald’s Game, and The Haunting of Hill House, has crafted plenty of cinematic moments that have left audiences with their hearts pounding. But his upcoming film Doctor Sleep, which is both an adaptation of Stephen King‘s sequel to The Shining and a continuation of the story told in Stanley Kubrick‘s 1980 horror classic, gave Flanagan “the two most nerve-wracking moments of [his] entire career” – getting approval from both King himself and Kubrick’s estate.

That’s no small feat, considering King’s opinion about Kubrick’s movie, and in a Q&A in West Hollywood yesterday afternoon, Flanagan and his producer Trevor Macy talked about striking that balance, recreating some of Kubrick’s iconic visuals, and much more.

The Handmaid's Tale God Bless the Child Review

After the triple-episode season premiere, The Handmaid’s Tale is marching forward. While lagging, the seasonal start so far feels fresher than it did with season two now that June is situated in a new insular world of Commander Lawrence’s household while still tangled in the Waterfords’ affairs. Nothing feels too new in “God Bless the Child”, as it seems there to occupy time in Gilead proceedings while inching bitty developments.

Last we left off in the triple-episode season starters, Serena and Fred Waterford have split up, June’s baby Nicole/Holly is now safely in Luke’s arms in Canada, and Emily has contacted her long-lost wife for a reunion.

When Kamala Khan debuted in the pages of her very own solo title Ms. Marvel in 2014, she was an immediate sensation. Marvel’s first Muslim superhero character to head her own comic book took on the mantle once worn by Carol Danvers (the current Captain Marvel) and became a wildly popular success, with fans quickly clamoring for Kamala’s turn on the big screen. And perhaps that turn may come sooner than we think. Mindy Kaling, who has pioneered diversity both in front of and behind the camera, confirmed that she has had discussions with Marvel Studios for a Ms. Marvel project.
