child's play behind-the-scenes video

I’m trying to remain cautiously optimistic about the new Child’s Play. As a fan of the original franchise, I was initially against this remake. But the casting, and the footage from the two trailers, have turned me around a bit. I’m still not 100% sold, but I’m hoping to be surprised. One thing the film definitely has going for it is the use of practical effects. When this project was first announced, I figured a terrible CGI Chucky would be used. But as this new Child’s Play behind-the-scenes video shows, the filmmakers made around six Chucky animatronic puppets in order to bring the killer doll to life.

Legion season 3 trailer

Legion, creator/showrunner Noah Hawley‘s trippy, hallucinatory exploration of the inner workings of a mutant’s mind, wasn’t made for casual viewing. It’s the type of show that demands your attention, rewards you with things you’ve never seen on TV before, and makes you appreciate the executives at FX who signed the checks for Hawley to make something so bonkers.

A perfect example: it’s a show in which characters ask questions like, “How do you surprise someone who can go back in time and warn himself?” Insert Keanu Reeves “whoa” gif here. Steel your minds for one more season of this mind-bending series and check out the new Legion season 3 trailer below. Read More »

Child's Play remake trailer reaction

The Child’s Play remake trailer is here, and…it looks okay? If you’ve been reading my work here at /Film, you know I’m not a fan of the idea of this film. I’m a die hard Child’s Play franchise fan, and there was no need to launch a remake. For one thing, the original franchise is still going, with original creator Don Mancini at the helm. Why start over again?

And yet, if I’m being honest, I don’t hate what I see here.
