AMC has plenty of zombies to spare with The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and the apparently endless array of spin-offs and movies they want to make in the coming years. But thankfully, they’re starting to diversify their horror slate with a little vampire terror.
NOS4A2 is a new series coming to AMC this June, based on Joe Hill‘s 2013 novel of the same name. The story follows a young woman named Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings) who finds herself drawn to lost things, especially people. But the way she finds them takes a toll on her, and it brings her face-to-face with an evil vampire (Zachary Quinto) who has been abducting children, feeding off their souls, and leaving them in a twisted alternate universe called Christmasland. Yeah, it’s a lot to take in, but the first NOS4A2 trailer makes it look rather compelling. Read More »

Amazon Prime Video has released a new Hanna featurette to mark the release of the first season on its streaming service and to delve into just how they made the anticipated TV series.

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?
This week we look to build a better toilet, look back on 80s horror, look back on 80s politics, remake another TV show, and get our guitars out in opposition of gentrification. Read More »

It probably helps that the movie actually looks surprisingly good, which I don’t think many of us were expecting. More on the Detective Pikachu box office below.

Since people would rather be entertained than actually learn something, the History Channel has resorted to creating narrative programming. It’s probably why we’re doomed to repeat the mistakes of our past, but that’s besides the point. History has carved out a niche by creating shows that take viewers back to various periods of time, and their latest will see Sylvester Stallone getting behind the camera for a period cop drama set in New York at the turn of the 20th century.

Sinemia is introducing a new unlimited plan that it hopes will put it back in the conversation of the battle for the superior movie ticket subscription service. The ticketing app has unveiled its Sinemia Unlimited Plan, which allows subscribers to watch one 2D movie a day for $14.99 a month. That’s only $5 more than the infamous MoviePass plan that blew up and subsequently tanked the service (though they still refuse to give up). Could this be the plan that earns Sinemia more subscribers?

Weta Workshop and Trishula Entertainment have teamed up to develop a District 9 board game based on the acclaimed 2009 sci-fi film directed by Neil Blomkamp. But this time, instead of taking place from the perspective of a scared company field agent who finds himself turning into one of the much-maligned Prawns, the board game will allow you to play as a soldier bent on raiding and suppressing the aliens.
