Disney has laid the trap for the first major film casualty of its acquisition of Fox. Two weeks before it was set to go into production, Mouse Guard, the feature film adaptation based on David Petersen’s beloved comic series, has been scrapped.

However, it seems those plans have been halted by Fox’s new parent company, Disney.

good omens teaser

When you think of Armaggedon, the first thought is of death, destruction, and the sinister Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. And while all of those are present in Good Omens, Amazon’s upcoming fantasy-comedy series based on the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett novel of the same name is going to introduce all of those things with a twinkle in its eye.

Game of Thrones ending

The eighth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones has begun, leaving only five episodes until the ending of the epic story is unveiled. That story originally began in 1996 when George R.R.

Read on for his quotes and to find out where he thinks the biggest differences will lie. Read More »

The magical creatures of the Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure ride are looking more realistic than ever. Universal Orlando Resorts released the first look at one of the titular creatures in the upcoming ride at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter land at Universal Orlando, which fans may recognize — though it looks decidedly un-fluffy as a giant animatronic puppet.

Game of Thrones is back with its eighth and final season…which means that a series known for its unwillingness to take any prisoners no longer has a reason to let the castles stand and keep heads on their shoulders.

The season premiere, “Winterfell,” follows the grand series tradition of moving pieces into place before the proper storm begins. And there are many, many pieces, even as the game table itself has shrunk to only two key locations: Winterfell, stronghold of House Stark, and King’s Landing, stronghold of House Lannister. Oh, and the army of the dead, wherever they happen to be at the moment.

/Film’s resident Westeros experts Jacob Hall and Ben Pearson will be examining these final episodes together, discussing the merits, debating the issues, and maybe even harmoniously agreeing on this grand conclusion. Join them below.
