Child's Play Remake Rated R

While the MPAA has yet to issue an official rating for the Child’s Play remake, producer Seth Grahame-Smith wants to assure horror fans that the new take on Chucky will have a firm R-rating. According to Grahame-Smith, you can expect a whole lot of gore and intensity in the upcoming movie, so at least that’s one less thing to worry about.

nightmare alley remake

Guillermo del Toro is ready to return to directing after winning an Oscar for The Shape of Water. The filmmaker will helm a remake of the 1940s noir Nightmare Alley, and he’s already attracting some serious star power. Leonardo DiCaprio is in talks to star in del Toro’s movie, which will follow a con-man who teams up with a psychic, and then later a psychiatrist, to scam people. Since del Toro’s involved, I’m assuming some sort of sexy monster will show up at some point. But maybe not.

the raid remake

When the scrappy Indonesian martial arts thriller The Raid: Redemption became an instant action classic in 2011, it seemed inevitable that a Hollywood remake would be on its way. Lo and behold, Frank Grillo soon signed on to star in The Raid remake, and director Joe Carnahan signed on three years later. But that was in 2017, and since then, we’ve heard nary a peep about The Raid remake.

But don’t worry, Carnahan is here to assure us that The Raid remake is still happening, in a new interview where he reveals the plot details of his English-language “reimagining” of Gareth Evans‘ hit film.

The Twilight Zone Emmy Eligibility

CBS All Access isn’t exactly overflowing with must-see content, with Star Trek Discovery and The Good Fight being the only two original hits in their library. But since The Twilight Zone reboot came along, plenty more people have been flocking to the streaming subscription service, and the show is bound to end up with some Emmy nominations later this year, but not in the category you might think.

Unlike other anthology shows that have landed accolades from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, such as American Horror Story or Fargo, The Twilight Zone won’t be competing in the category for Outstanding Limited Series. Instead, the sci-fi series reboot will be vying for a spot in the Outstanding Drama Series category. That will give the series much more competition, but that’s not the only hurdle the series is facing when it comes to landing Emmy nominations.

What if…the Child’s Play remake ends up being good? Fans of the franchise (like me!) were initially grumpy about this entire endeavor, but slowly and surely, the new film has worn has down. The cast is mighty impressive, and having Mark Hamill as the new voice of Chucky is a masterstroke. And then there’s the footage, which looks promising. Including the footage you’ll see in the new trailer below. While nothing can ever replace the original Child’s Play series, this new take on the material might end up surprising us all. Watch the new Child’s Play trailer below.
