It’s been almost a year since we heard the first details about the next season of Fargo, FX’s small screen riff on the Coen Brothers’ Oscar-winning 1996 movie. Last year, showrunner Noah Hawley cast Chris Rock as the lead of season 4, and today, the network has finally announced the other key members of the cast.
Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, Paddington), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), and more are joining the show this season, which takes place in Kansas City in the 1950s. Discover the rest of the newly-announced cast (including a new personal favorite!) and find out who they’re all playing below. Read More »
Night Hunter was stuck between a rock and a hard place: go with a tantalizing, vague title like Nomis that would probably get mispronounced to hell, or adopt a generic, hyper-masculine title like Night Hunter. The David Raymond film obviously went with the latter.
The thing about a title like Night Hunter is that it’s both too specific and too vague — sure, it’s about a person who hunts at night, but what does that mean? In this case, the hunter in the title refers to a serial killer who at the beginning of the film is arrested — but that doesn’t stop him from taking more lives with every passing second, despite the efforts of Henry Cavill, Alexandria Daddario, and Ben Kingsley. Watch the Night Hunter trailer below.

Rian Johnson built his early career as a genre-hopping filmmaker with his keen ability to craft memorable, meaningful movies, and after his first visit to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he’s jumping to yet another genre. While he tackled a murder mystery in his debut feature Brick, his newest film, Knives Out, is an Agatha Christie-style whodunnit with a detective (Daniel Craig) investigating a family-centric murder mystery – and Craig is far from the only mega-star in this spectacular cast. Check out the first trailer below.

Bill Condon, the Oscar-winning filmmaker who recently directed the live-action Beauty and the Beast for Disney, is back with a new movie, and this one does something that’s inexplicably never been done before: it pairs Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen on the big screen together for the first time ever.

I’m old enough to remember booting up the family PC and spending hours clicking through the world of Myst, a first-person point-and-click adventure puzzle game originally released in 1993. Hollywood has tried to translate the game’s mesmerizing world to both the big and small screen over the past ten years, first with a planned movie and then with a TV show on Hulu, but nothing came of either attempt.
Now, more than twenty-five years after the first game’s debut, a different company has come along and purchased the rights, so we may end up seeing a Myst movie and TV show after all. But is that world a good fit for those mediums?
