Earlier this year, the seemingly impossible happened: FX actually ordered a pilot for a TV adaptation of writer Brian K. Vaughn and artist Pia Guerra‘s beloved comic book Y: The Last Man. The project had been kicking around Hollywood for over a decade, flirting with a movie version several times before eventually finding a suitor on television at FX.
Now the Y The Last Man cast has been announced, and American Animals star Barry Keoghan has been tapped to play the male lead. In addition, Diane Lane (Justice League) has joined the cast in a key role as a Senator, and we also know who will play Agent 355, the lead’s sister Hero, and more. Read on to learn about the rest of the cast. Read More »
It’s been an incredible decade for graphic novel adaptations, and an even better one for coming-of-age films. I Kill Giants offers the best of both, adapting the critically-acclaimed Image Comics series from Joe Kelly and J. M. Ken Niimura, which was released in 2008.
The film follows a troubled young girl who escapes from her family and school conflicts by engaging in even more fantastical ones: battling giants.

Last week, it was revealed that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon is going to write and direct a Batgirl movie. It feels like a pitch-perfect match of storyteller and character – Whedon’s voice feels perfectly honed to tell the story of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of the Gotham City police commissioner who decides to take her father’s war on crime to the next level.
Of course, it’s still early days yet. Whedon has not cast his Batgirl. And that’s why we’re here. We have 17 suggestions.

I first saw Green Room a few months ago and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. Writer/director Jeremy Saulnier‘s nasty, brutal thriller has wedged itself into my brain in a big way – it’s the kind of movie that’s so intense that it makes most hard-edged genre movies look downright friendly and agreeable. This is take-no-prisoners filmmaking at its finest.
So we’re pleased to debut a new clip from Green Room, which should give you a little taste of what to expect from the final film.

There’s being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and then there’s finding yourself in the middle of a group of neo-Nazis who will stop at anything to cover up a murder. That’s exactly what happens in Jeremy Saulnier‘s latest thriller Green Room when a punk rock band sees something they weren’t supposed to after playing a shady stop on a little cross country tour.
Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) are among the bandmates while Imogen Poots (Fright Night) is the concertgoer whose friend has met a grisly fate at the hands of another band member’s violent ways. They all end up stuck in this hell that is meticulously taken care of by Patrick Stewart and his loyal group of skinheads. A new Green Room red band trailer shows just how intense this movie truly is, and it’s one you won’t want to miss. Read More »
Many know Patrick Stewart as the fearless Captain Jean Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, or as Professor X, the noble mentor and leader of the X-Men. But this spring, we’ll see him in a role unlike any other he’s played before, and it’s pretty terrifying.
Green Room is the next thriller from Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier, and it delivers the intense, brutal and thrilling face-off between a punk band (including Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots) in the wrong place at the wrong time and a group of methodical, calculated neo-Nazis led by none other than Stewart. Watch a new Green Room trailer that teases this suspenseful match-up after the jump. Read More »
We love Green Room at the site. Both Jacob Hall and I saw Jeremy Saulnier‘s (Blue Ruin) third feature film at last year’s Fantastic Fest, and if it was released last year, it definitely would’ve made our top 10 lists. It’s a frenetic, brutal and uncompromising siege film. Green Room is also a ton of fun, in spite of the dark material.
Saulnier’s action-drama opens in theaters next month, and to continue to raise awareness, A24 has created a Green Room radio show.
