what happened to the dark universe

Like a freshly-turned vampire immediately stumbling out into the sun, Dark Universe died before it could really get started. Universal had hoped to launch their own cinematic universe based around their classic monsters, but the first entry – The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise – was a complete dud.

Star Trek Discovery Showrunners Fired

Star Trek: Discovery is making some changes behind the scenes, with showrunning team Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts being removed from the series and replaced with executive producer Alex Kurtzman.

The change in leadership in the second season of Star Trek: Discovery comes after a number of issues kept arising with the showrunner duo. First, the second season premiere went way over budget and needed to be paid for with money intended for episodes later in the season. But the real issue is that Berg and Harberts apparently become “increasingly abusive” with their writing staff. Read More »
