Listen to Diddy, Pharrell’s New Song ‘Finna Get Loose’

16 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The end of June has been wild for Diddy: First, he got arrested for kettlebell stuff. Then, he reunited the Bad Boy family at the Bet Awards — and fell down a trap door. And now he's teamed up with Pharrell to remind everyone who he is, with "Finna Get Loose," one big feeling you can feel with your ears. (Well, he is many things, but in this scenario: rapper.) The production on this track, courtesy of Pharrell, is undeniably fantastic. The lyrics are ... well, a blend of bland and scary (there is a reference in here to Stephen King's Cujo, whoa!). As a package deal, though, it seems to accomplish its goal — even if the person in the background is panting really hard and should probably receive medical attention instead of dancing. Anyway, as far as reminders go, it's pretty fun. Diddy even goes a little bit »

Neil Gaiman Will Write Multiple 'American Gods' Episodes

27 June 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Game of Thrones is unique in that creator George R.R. Martin wrote one episode per season for Season 1 through Season 4, based on his own novels. Popular author Neil Gaiman is set to carry forward that tradition with American Gods, the new Starz series based on his Hugo and Nebula Award-winning fantasy novel. Producer Bryan Fuller confirmed with Collider that Neil Gaiman has agreed to pen at least a couple of upcoming episodes. He states.

9 Stephen King TV Adaptations That Will Totes Creep the Hell Outta You

24 June 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Writer Stephen King is regarded as one of the great masters of suspense (no disrespect to Mr. Hitchcock, of course) and his contribution to entertainment over the five decades has been huge. His thrilling, spooky, and often campy stories have been turned into countless film and TV projects, delighting horror and sci-fi fans alike on-screen since "Carrie" got doused in pig's blood back in 1976.

King has dozens of TV adaptations to his credit, including current CBS hit "Under the Dome," so we think now's a great time to look back at a few standouts. Here are 9 creep-tastic Stephen King TV adaptations worth getting scared by. (Spoiler alert: If you live in a small and sleepy New England town, prepare to be extra freaked out.)

Laurie Metcalf to Play Annie Wilkes in Broadway Version of Stephen King’s Misery

23 June 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When it was announced in March that Stephen King's classic horror novel Misery was getting the Broadway treatment, Elizabeth Marvel was intended to play the juicy role of number-one fan and number-one torturous motivator Annie Wilkes on stage. Due to House of Cards commitments, however, Marvel has left the project and Laurie Metcalf has joined it in her place.

Variety reports that Laurie Metcalf will play Annie Wilkes in the Misery Broadway play. Widely known for her stellar turn as Jackie Harris on Roseanne in addition to a plethora of other TV and film credits, Metcalf is perhaps best known to horror fans for her intense, unflinching portrayal as Mrs. Loomis in Scream 2.

As Wilkes, Metcalf will inflict pain on author Paul Sheldon, played by Bruce Willis in his Broadway debut. Metcalf is no stranger to the stage, having performed both off Broadway in Domesticated and on Broadway in The Other Place. »

‘Tales From the Crypt’ Volume 1 The early days of the horror icon crawl back from the grave

22 June 2015 7:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Few comics sit at the intersection of “fan beloved,” “industry defining,” and “absolutely impossible to acquire” the way the EC Comics library does. For a while they almost felt like Comics’ very own Holy Grail. On one hand, you’ve got the Tales From The Crypt brand itself, which has left an indelible mark on pop culture with films, cable TV series, Saturday morning cartoons, and a line of revival graphic novels from Papercutz — a proud legacy, to be sure. But on the other hand, you enter into the more nebulous region of pop cultural osmosis, and it’s there that the legend of Bill Gaines’ little comic line that could grows to gargantuan levels. The baby boomers that ate his ghoulish “mags” up in the early ‘50s eventually grew into the genre fiction movers and shakers of the ‘70s and ‘80s — from cult directors like George Romero and Joe Dante, »

22 June 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Want to revisit "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" before "Terminator: Genisys" opens? Better do it before July 1, when Netflix says "Hasta la vista" to the 1991 sequel.

If you have a hankering to watch "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Moonstruck," "Cast Away," or "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," get on it, because those are also disappearing in July.

And start marathoning these TV classics before they go poof: "Leave it to Beaver," "Dragnet," "Mission: Impossible," "Hawaii Five-o," "Magnum P.I.," "Miami Vice," "Knight Rider," "Melrose Place" and "Wings." Also bid goodbye to the Stephen King miniseries "The Stand" (1994) and "The Langoliers" (1995).

Below is a complete list of the movies that Netflix is pulling from your streaming list. And, just so you're not left empty-handed, here's a list of what's new on Netflix in July 2015. (All titles and dates provided by Netflix and subject to change.)​

'Under the Dome' Season 3 Unites Julia and Big Jim to 'Fight the Enemy Within'

22 June 2015 2:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Are you ready to go back "Under the Dome" -- and outside the Dome, around the corner from the Dome, or wherever CBS sends us next? Season 3 of the show that is really not following Stephen King's book at all anymore premieres this Thursday, June 25 at 9 p.m. with back-to-back episodes. In "Move On" and "But I'm Not," CBS says:

The residents of Chester's Mill appear both inside and outside the Dome following their mysterious encounter in the tunnels beneath the town. As the Dome begins to reveal its ultimate agenda, the townspeople are forced to question what and whom they can trust as fresh threats appear, new residents emerge and surprising alliances form."

On the new residents front, it looks like Marg Helgenberger will guest star as Christine Price, a Chester's Mill resident with insight into the Dome's origins, and Eriq La Salle guest stars as Hektor Martin, »

Let's celebrate Father's Day with these 5 murderous movie dads

19 June 2015 5:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's Father's Day, meaning it's time to celebrate the man who gave you everything. Or maybe he didn't! Maybe he took off before you were even born. Maybe he was always away on business. Or maybe he just didn't love you enough. Hopefully none of those were true for you, but if they were: I am so sorry. Let's be real: Father's Day isn't fun and games for everybody. But even if your dad fell short, look at the bright side: at least he didn't try to kill you (I hope!). To afford some perspective, below I've listed five murderous movie dads who will make you immediately run out and buy a card saying "Thanks for always being there, Dad" or "You're the greatest, Dad" or "Thanks for not trying to cut me up into little pieces with an ax, Dad." That last one you're probably going to have to make yourself, »

Stephen King Calls for ‘Responsible Gun Control’ After Charleston Church Shooting

19 June 2015 1:44 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Here’s one kind of horror that Stephen King isn’t a fan of: The real-life horror of gun violence in America. “Carrie” and “It” author King took to Twitter to call for “responsible gun control laws” on Thursday, after the deadly church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, that left nine dead. King also took aim at those who keep “proudly closed minds” on the issue of gun control. See video: Jon Stewart on Charleston Church Massacre: 'This Wasn't a Tornado, This Is Racist' “Until responsible gun owners support responsible gun control laws, innocent blood will continue to flow,” King wrote. »

‘Breaking Bad’ Actor Aaron Paul Joins Hulu’s Original Series ‘The Way’

17 June 2015 3:56 PM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Hulu has tapped a major Hollywood celebrity for its upcoming series The Way. Aaron Paul (of Breaking Bad fame) is joining the Hulu original series as both a lead actor and producer.

The Way centers on one family involved in a cult-like religious movement as they deal with issues like power, marriage, and the idea of going after the life you want to live. Paul will play opposite lead actress Michelle Monaghan as her husband Eddie Cleary. Eddie will question all he’s come to believe when his faith is challenged at its core.

Hulu announced The Way back in March 2015. Executive produced by Michelle Lee and Emmy-winner Jason Katims, The Way was written by Jessica Goldberg (of Parenthood fame). Hulu’s original series is produced by Katims’ True Jack Productions and Universal Television.

Paul is not the first big-league Hollywood actor to join one of Hulu’s original programming projects. »

The Last Horror Blog: The Pros and Cons of Making 'The Stand' Into a TV Show and a Movie

15 June 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It’s been a rough road for adaptations of some of Stephen King’s biggest books. Rumors of a movie based on King and Peter Straub’s epic The Talisman have floated around for years (with Steven Spielberg attached at one point), but have never come to fruition. Ron Howard tantalized us with what was sure to be an amazing multi-feature version of King’s sprawling dark fantasy series The Dark Tower, but that too has languished in development Hell (although it may be moving forward again). Then Josh Boone came along with plans to update King’s post-apocalyptic masterpiece The Stand for a new generation. That project originally earned consternation from fans when it was announced that the 1000+ page novel (the unexpurgated version – King’s...

Steam Summer Sale 2015 Guide

12 June 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Are you ready for a miracle?

For those of you who don’t have a clue about what the heck I’m talking about, the Steam Summer Sale is the biggest event for anyone owning a computer.

Basically, Steam (a distribution platform by Valve that allows you to buy and play PC games) throws a summer sale every year. Usually I don’t talk about sales, but this isn’t just any sale. This is the sale for video games. Most games, even the most recent ones, get their prices slashed anywhere from 60-90%. And trust me when I say there are a lot of games and deals to be found.

But with so much goodness as far as the eye can see, sometimes the Steam Summer Sale can feel overwhelming. It’s easy to get lost in all of the discounts and wind up blowing your wallet on games you won’t play, »
