Black Christmas trailer

We’ve already seen two versions of the holiday horror film Black ChristmasBob Clark‘s low-budget 1974 original cult classic, and Glen Morgan‘s slicker, more expensive remake in 2006. But now the story of a group of sorority sisters terrorized by a serial killer during the holidays is getting a woman’s touch: Sophia Takal (Always Shine) is directing another remake for Blumhouse that puts a new spin on the familiar story. Check out the first trailer below.

prisoners of the ghostland cast

Nicolas Cage recently described his upcoming film Prisoners of the Ghostland as the “wildest movie” he’s ever made, and that’s saying something. The film teams him with legendary Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono, director of Why Don’t You Play in Hell? and Suicide Club. Now we have two updates on the project, one good, one bad.

First, the good: Green Room‘s Imogen Poots is joining the cast. Now the bad news: Sion Sono has apparently suffered a heart attack. But reports indicate he’s doing well, and is not in any critical danger. So I guess that’s good news after all.

Y The Last Man cast

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 »

I Kill Giants Trailer

The film follows a troubled young girl who escapes from her family and school conflicts by engaging in even more fantastical ones: battling giants.

batgirl actress

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.
