The Magic Order

When famed comic book writer Mark Millar sold his Millarworld company to Netflix back in 2017, the plan was for him to develop new properties that could work as both comics and potential film or TV shows. The streaming service announced last year that several adaptations were coming soon, and now another adaptation is one step closer to reality.

James Wan (Aquaman, Saw) will direct the pilot episode of The Magic Order, based on an original comic that Millar wrote and Netflix published last year. This is exciting both because Wan rarely steps into the world of TV, and because the premise for this show is pretty damn great. Here’s what we know so far. Read More »

If you’ve been craving more creepy dolls in your life, today’s your lucky day!

The Trench Release Date

We won’t get to see an Aquaman sequel until 2022, but we’ll be returning to the world of the film much sooner thanks to The Trench. The horror-movie spin-off will open before Aquaman 2, and it will also be set after the events of the first Aquaman. When news of the spin-off broke, some assumed it might be a prequel focusing on how the citizens of The Trench turned into the Lovecraftian monsters seen in the first film, but that’s officially not the case. Producer Peter Safran dropped this bit of Trench info this week, while also commenting on how The Conjuring Universe is inspiring the approach to future Aquaman films.

weekend box office aquaman week 3

It’s official: Aquaman is now the champion of the DCEU. A few years ago, if you had told me a movie starring Aquaman would outgross one featuring Batman and Superman, I might have laughed. But things change, and audiences can’t seem to get enough of James Wan‘s underwater hero. The Warner Bros. flick remained at the top of the box office for a third weekend in a row, with Escape Room coming in a distant second.
