There are plenty of movies that aren’t getting released in theaters this year that audiences are hungry to sink their teeth into. Many of them have been moved to 2021, but this weekend brings the release of a movie that deserves the big screen treatment that has unfortunately been relegated to a small screen debut on premium VOD.
Love and Monsters takes place seven years after a monster apocalypse was unleashed on Earth. After spending years in a bunker with other survivors, a young guy named Joel (Dylan O’Brien) is sick of waiting for things to change, and he decides to head to the surface to reunite with his high school sweetheart Amy (Jessica Henwick), who is in another bunker 80 miles away. There’s just one problem: Joel is far from skilled at surviving, and he has a tendency to freeze whenever a giant monster comes around. See for yourself in the new Love and Monsters trailer below.

Some of the most soul-crushing and formative experiences come from young romance. But imagine how much harder that kind of love would be in the wake of a giant monster apocalypse.
Love and Monsters is a new sci-fi romance that finds a young man named Joel (Dylan O’Brien) estranged from his high school girlfriend Aimee (Jessica Henwick) after giant monsters appeared on Earth and forced what remained of humanity to hide underground. But when he reconnects with her on a radio, Joel decides to risk his life to track her down and rekindle their love. It’s A Quiet Place mixed with teen romance, but with a lot more deadly creatures. Watch the Love and Monsters trailer below. Read More »
Paramount Pictures, one of the oldest legacy studios in Hollywood, has not been in an ideal market position in a long, long time. Now the studio is getting some financial aid from New Republic Pictures, a production company whose credits include 1917, Black Swan, and Rocketman, for ten upcoming blockbusters, including Mission: Impossible 7 and Top Gun: Maverick.
The 100-plus-year-old studio has also decided to make its Dylan O’Brien-starring sci-fi adventure movie Love and Monsters available on premium video on demand services later this year, instead of giving it the theatrical release that was originally planned. Get the details below. Read More »
Back in 2012, Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Night at the Museum) was gearing up to direct a film called Monster Problems, a post-apocalyptic coming-of-age story based on a script by Brian Duffield (Insurgent, Jane Got a Gun). Time passed, and that version of the movie fell away into the gaping maw of Hollywood’s endless “what if” scenarios.
But Monster Problems is back, crawling out of its early grave. Guardians of the Galaxy actor Michael Rooker has joined the project alongside The Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien. Levy is still on board all these years later, but he’s shifted into a producer role and found a new director. Learn more about Monster Problems below. Read More »
Jordan Peele may be horror’s new favorite son, but the ever-busy writer/producer/director is finding ways to acknowledge his comedy roots. Jordan Peele and former Key & Peele writer Charlie Sanders teamed up to create the YouTube Premium series Weird City, a sci-fi anthology that brings the funny to futuristic dystopias. Set in a society where classes are starkly divided by the haves and have-nots, labeled in this case as “Above the Line” and “Below the Line,” Weird City stars LeVar Burton as a mad scientist who introduces all kinds of bizarre gadgets to better optimize love and life — to hilarious results according to the Weird City trailer.

For 10 years and four Transformers movies, Bumblebee was charmingly mute, only able to communicate through the radio. It was a fun quirk that suited the iconic character, but it all changed in last year’s Transformers: The Last Knight when we heard Bumblebee’s voice for the first time. In that film, Optimus Prime says he hasn’t heard Bumblebee’s voice (voiced in The Last Knight by sound designer Erik Aadahl) since Cybertron fell, and now it sounds like audiences are going to have the chance to hear what the big yellow Autobot used to sound like.
That’s right – Bumblebee is going to speak in the upcoming Bumblebee movie. And he’s going to sound a lot like that guy from Maze Runner.

This YA dystopian movie has everything: zombies, explosions, deadly missiles, and Giancarlo Esposito in a fabulous coat. Aiden Gillen’s also rocking a sweet turtleneck, but the fashion choices of the prestigious character actors is besides the point: the Maze Runner trilogy is officially reaching the end of the labyrinth.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure is closing out the YA dystopia series — admittedly, one of the better ones we’ve seen in the past decade — with a bombastic third and final act. That means the Gladers, led by Dylan O’Brien‘s Thomas, will be going back into the deadliest maze they’ve faced yet. Because as everyone knows, the only way to move forward is to go back.
