the umbrella academy early buzz

The Umbrella Academy is just the latest of many superhero series to hit the small screen, as Hollywood breathlessly tries to mine every comic book for a TV show or film adaptation.

But the Netflix series, based on the Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá Dark Horse comic book series of the same name, stands apart from the rest. Ellen Page leads the cast of The Umbrella Academy, which follows a gang of misfit siblings with superpowers who reunite to solve the mystery of their father’s death. Critics are praising the Netflix series for being a breath of fresh air from the glut of Marvel and DC Comics adaptations, offering a refreshing and bonkers take on the familiar genre.

Umbrella Academy Trailer

If the X-Men franchise has been disappointing you in recent years, maybe you’ll take solace in a different kind of mutant superhero story that has flares of Watchmen, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Atomic Blonde all mixed together.

Umbrella Academy, based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, is a new series coming to Netflix in February, and the first trailer has just arrived with some 1980s pop music to usher in the story about a group of adopted misfits who must band together to stop the world from ending.

flatliners trailer

Like any year, 2017 has had some truly excellent films, and then it’s also had some stinkers. As we approach the end of the year and enter awards season, get ready for more excellent films. For now, though, here come the summer runoffs – the films studios had no real faith in and dumped at the dead-end of September. Films like the Flatliners remake, which is now sitting at an uncomfortable 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, as the folks at MovieFone were kind enough to point out. Read more about the Flatliners negative reviews below.

flatliners trailer

From producer Michael Douglas comes a remake of Flatliners. Based on Joel Schumacher‘s 1990 film, the premise appears to be more or less the same with some modern touches. It’s a fine movie that doesn’t quite live up to its premise, so unlike a lot of cases, a remake here makes sense. So far, based on the marketing, it doesn’t look like Niels Arden Oplev‘s (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) movie is bringing a whole lot new to the table – except for a strong cast.

Below, watch the new Flatliners trailer.

Flatliners Remake Trailer

If Netflix’s The Discovery wasn’t quite what you were hoping for in a movie that explores what happens after we die, maybe the remake of the 1990 thriller Flatliners will make up for it.

Ellen Page (Juno), Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Nina Dobrev (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), James Norton (Happy Valley) and Kiersey Clemons (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) star in the remake of Joel Schumacher’s film, taking on the roles originated by Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. They are five medical students who learn about what lies beyond mortality when they stop each others’ heart for a few minutes at a time before immediately resuscitate them. What starts as an almost indescribable thrill that seems to have a positive impact on their brain slowly turns into a nightmare as they are each haunted by something tragic from their past.

Flatliners Sequel

Just a few weeks ago, the developing Flatliners remake gained an interesting name with Kiefer Sutherland joining the cast. What’s interesting about the addition of Sutherland to the cast is that he starred in the original 1990 cult favorite thriller, and his involvement in the new take on the story opened up the possibility of this being more of a sequel instead of a true remake. Now we seem to have confirmation of as much from Kiefer Sutherland himself. Find out what the actor had to say about the Flatliners sequel after the jump. Read More »
