hellboy reboot failure

David Harbour is a charming guy, a good actor, and a genuinely beloved figure. So it pains me to see him talkin’ crazy about his failed Hellboy reboot. According to Harbour, the film’s failure was primarily due to fans of the Guillermo del Toro movies who were angry about a reboot. And while it’s certainly true that fans of the del Toro movies were unhappy the Oscar-winning filmmaker wasn’t allowed to complete his trilogy, that’s certainly not the reason the Hellboy reboot failed.

stranger things 4 premiere

The two-year gap between Stranger Things seasons 2 and 3 was already tortuous enough, but fans of the Netflix sci-fi series may have to wait even longer for Stranger Things 4 as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread.

Production for the fourth season of Stranger Things had begun in Atlanta earlier this year but was suspended earlier this month in the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. But if things had gone according to plan, the series might have premiered as early as next year, star David Harbour recently revealed. But now the questions remains as to whether it can keep that original Stranger Things 4 premiere date.

Black Widow Trailer

Natasha Romanoff may have sacrificed herself for the greater good in Avengers: Endgame, but that’s not stopping Black Widow from finally getting her own movie. And neither is coronavirus.

Black Widow is still slated for release in May (for now), and Marvel Studios just released the final trailer that reveals so much more about the movie taking place after the events of Captain America: Civil War, but before Avengers: Infinity War. A villain calling himself Taskmaster has taken over the assassin group known as the Red Room, the organization which turned Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) into a weapon. We’re not sure what his plan is exactly, but it likely has something to do with toppling governments and taking over the world. Standard villain stuff. Watch the new Black Widow trailer below.

Black Widow Super Bowl Spot

Natasha Romanoff sacrificed herself in Avengers: Endgame to bring back everyone that Thanos snapped away in Avengers: Infinity War. But there’s more to the former SHIELD agent’s story in between the events of Captain America: Civil War and the villainy of Thanos, and we’ll see it unfold in Black Widow. Natasha reunites with the deadly makeshift family she had before falling in with The Avengers, and there’s likely betrayal and danger in her future (or rather her past). Watch the Black Widow Super Bowl spot for more. Read More »

David Harbour Hosting Saturday Night Live

Based on David Harbour‘s general enthusiasm in any given situation, we knew that he would have plenty of fun hosting Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately, it seems like the writers might have been tired in their third episode in a row, because the sketches were rather middling in their comedy. Thankfully, there were a couple of great standout sketches, including one that has David Harbour giving a Joker-inspired gritty take on Oscar the Grouch.

Without further adieu, let’s run through the best and worst sketches from the David Harbour hosted Saturday Night Live.

Eddie Murphy Hosting Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live will return for its 45th season this fall on September 28, and just in time to promote the release of Zombieland: Double Tap in October, star Woody Harrelson will take hosting duties for the season premiere. But the most exciting news about SNL this season is who will be hosting in December.

Eddie Murphy will be returning to host the series for the first time since 1984, the same year that he left the series after being a cast member since 1980. This is an even bigger deal than Adam Sandler returning to host the show last season, and we have even more details on the roster of guests coming to Saturday Night Live below. Read More »

stranger things 3 spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Stranger Things 3.)

When Netflix provided me with screeners to review Stranger Things 3, they included a laundry list of spoilers that could not, under any circumstance, be mentioned in the review. As a rule, I try to avoid any and all spoilers in a general review, but this list was daunting to say the least. Now, the cat is out of the bag. Stranger Things 3 dropped on July 4, and I’m guessing if you’re reading this, you went ahead and binged the entire season over the holiday weekend. That means its time to head back to Hawkins, and delve into the details that Netflix was so hellbent on keeping a secret.

Spoilers follow – obviously.
