DARYL TV Series

Remember D.A.R.Y.L.? I sure don’t, but it was a movie from 1985 about a young boy who was secretly a robot. And now, for reasons that are far beyond my understanding, there’s a TV series sequel in the works. It’s one of several titles in development over at TNT and TBS, and Tony Hale is set to star as the robot boy, who is now all grown-up…and obsolete.

upgrade tv series

Leigh Whannell‘s fantastic sci-fi-action-horror pic Upgrade is headed to the small screen. The Upgrade TV series won’t be a remake of the movie but will instead be set a few years after the events of Whannell’s 2018 flick that saw Logan Marshall-Green play a paraplegic who is given the ability to walk again – and seek revenge against the people who murdered his wife – with the help of an A.I. implant.   Read More »

Love, Victor Trailer

Back in 2018, 20th Century Fox gave us the coming-of-age teen romance Love, Simon. It was your average romantic comedy about a young kid trying to figure out his place in the world as he deals with the trials and tribulations of being a teenager, but it followed the journey of a young gay kid named Simon (Nick Robinson). It wasn’t exactly innovative with the storytelling, but that’s also what made it a little groundbreaking. It was a traditional romantic comedy that gave a queer relationship the spotlight.

Now Hulu is following in the footsteps of Love, Simon with a new series called Love, Victor, which also follows a closeted gay teen (Michael Cimino) as he makes his way through a new high school, making friends, and coming to terms with his sexual orientation. A new Love, Victor trailer has arrived, and it echoes a lot of the style and energy from Love, Simon, but Victor may have a somewhat more difficult time coming out. Read More »

chucky tv series update

Child’s Play is a very fluid franchise, and that might be the key to its longevity. While other horror franchises have died off, Child’s Play is still going strong, even in the wake of an unnecessary remake. Don Mancini, who has been behind the series since the beginning, is now bringing the story of the killer Good Guy doll to TV with the Chucky TV series. The series remains shrouded in secrecy, but in a new interview, Mancini promises that the show will combine the more straightforward horror elements of the first film while also honoring the ever-changing tone of the sequels.

Mark Hamill - Star Wars The Last Jedi Disagreement

Mark Hamill will always be known as Luke Skywalker, but outside of the Star Wars saga, he’s been doing extremely interesting work with an array of eclectic characters. On top of his incredible voice work as The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and recent turns in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance and Avengers Assemble, Hamill has also been appearing on live-action shows like The Flash and Knightfall. But his latest role is one of the most exciting yet.

The second season of What We Do in the Shadows has recruited Mark Hamill as an ancient vampire who is a rival of Laszlo, played by Matt Berry. The new character tracks down Laszlo out of nowhere to settle a personal debt, and based on the first look photo of Mark Hamill in What We Do in the Shadows, this is going to be a lot of fun.
