Good morning Angels! Sony announce remake of Charlie’s Angels, Elizabeth Banks directing

10 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

You could say that this was an inevitability given the amount of remakes, reboots and reimaginings that have graced the big-screen over the last decade or so. Indeed with more and more television adaptations working with cinema audiences, it’s no real surprise to hear that cult television series Charlie’s Angels is getting a second outing (via THR / The Tracking Board).

Sony has announced that a new version of the show is set for a reboot after the project had originally had two big-screen versions in 2000 and 2003 respectively. With the likes of Baywatch (read our review here), 21/22 Jump Street, CHiPS and others taking to the big-screen with mixed results (Baywatch opens in the Us tomorrow), it’s now seemingly the time to revisit the series.

Already attached to direct the film is Elizabeth Banks, who made her directorial debut on 2015’s Pitch Perfect 2 with Angels marking her sophomore effort. »

The Grinch: first pic from new CG reboot

23 May 2017 9:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Brendon Connelly May 24, 2017

Benedict Cumberbatch is voicing The Grinch. And here's what he'll look like...

Illumination - the folks behind the Despicable Me films, of course - have been showing off some of their key characters to licensors over the past week, the better to encourage the continued manufacture, distribution, sale, enjoyment and, eventually, landfill-clogging destruction of their merchandise. And in a new piece of artwork - that you can see at the top there, and in full down at the bottom - that's been placed as an advert in Global License, we get our first look at the studio's CG take on The Grinch, from next year's The Grinch Who Stole Christmas do-over.

Following Boris Karloff, sort-of-Tim Curry, Jim Carrey and Seth Green, the latest actor to play (well, voice in this instance) Dr. Seuss' immortal, Christmas-derailing hermit, will be Benedict Cumberbatch. Seems only natural. Shame that »

Pennywise Documentary Trailer Delves Into the Story Behind It

23 May 2017 5:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With New Line Cinema's It remake shattering trailer view records, with 197 million views in the first 24 hours, this Stephen King story is certainly more popular than ever. For those who want to explore this story and the original 1990 mini-series, starring Tim Curry in an iconic performance as Pennywise the Clown, you can help make a new documentary about It happen. Earlier today, a new IndieGogo campaign was launched for Pennywise: The Story of It. Here's an official description of the project from Dead Mouse Productions, which is running the crowdfunding campaign.

"From Dead Mouse Productions Ltd and Cult Screenings UK Ltd, makers of Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II, You're so cool, Brewster!

The Scariest Scenes in TV History — IndieWire Critics Survey

23 May 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the scariest moment or scene on TV?

Ben Travers (@BenTTravers), IndieWire

Though there are moments within “Penny Dreadful” (the seance) and “The X-Files” (“Home”) that left me spooked, the title for scariest TV scene has to go to the only show to give me nightmares — actual, legitimate nightmares. After watching the first two episodes of “Hannibal,” I woke up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat and haunted by a bright red room with blood running down the walls — twice! Two weeks in a row, “Hannibal” ruined my peaceful slumber, and I had to stop watching the show live (and during the night entirely). Each week, »

2017 – A new Resurgence in Horror

17 May 2017 6:29 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Horror seems to be making a comeback with a new wave of films now receiving both critical acclaim, as well as financial success at the box office. Just by attaching the names of writer/director James Wan or Production Company Blumhouse, seems to have enough momentum to make it a box office hit. So with the public now paying to get scared again, here are the top five horror films worth looking out for in 2017.

Death House (Release Date: Tbc)

x

With jump scare film franchises like The Conjuring (2013-2016) and Insidious (2010 -2018) dominating at the box office, it will take something special to change the trend, but that is something Death House is looking to initiate.

Based on an original concept by Gunnar Hansen to bring the icons of horror together the cast reflects his vision perfectly; and for any icons not featured in the original, 5 sequels are already planned for the franchise. »

Could Ian McDiarmid Reprise Emperor Palpatine On Star Wars Rebels?

12 May 2017 2:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s not just the upcoming slate of movies that Star Wars fans are excited for at the moment. While there’s definitely a lot to look forward to there, we’ve also got some notable stuff coming down the pipeline on television.

Star Wars Rebels is about to air its fourth and final season, which promises to end the show in style. We already know that franchise stalwart Warwick Davis will be voicing Rukh, a character previously seen in the novels, while fan favourite Ahsoka Tano will be returning for more, too. The list goes on, but the upcoming season could be about to get even more exciting if this new casting rumour turns out to be true.

Star Wars News Network have reported that none other than Ian McDiarmid has recorded lines for Star Wars Rebels. As any fan can tell you, McDiarmid played the Emperor/Chancellor Palpatine »

More on It’s Chilling New Trailer That Debuted at the MTV Movie and TV Awards

9 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Stephen King adaptations have always been a mixed bag.  Since they’re sold off to the highest bidder, rather than to anybody with integrity or vision, you end up with the widest possible range in quality: everything from certified classics like The Shawshank Redemption to best forgotten dreck like The Lawnmower Man. Although fondly remembered for playing host to Tim Curry’s career-defining turn as Pennywise the clown, the 1990 It miniseries falls firmly into that second category.  Outside of Curry’s nightmarish growl, there never really was much to praise from that adaptation.  The scares were horribly telegraphed, the set design garish

Stephen King’s It First Look: Don’t Enter The Sewers [Video]

8 May 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s It has a lot to live up to. Of course, it goes without saying that the original novel is a horror classic, but in addition to that, many audience members have fond memories of the original 1990s mini-series starring Tim Curry. Sure, if you actually look back at that adaptation, it doesn’t really hold up too well, but nostalgia goggles are a powerful thing, so in the eyes of many, it will always be a big uphill battle.

Several weeks back, we got our first look at the film with its teaser trailer, and man did that thing look creepy. However, as with every Stephen King adaptations, the scares are only one part of the package. The author is also well known for creating memorable characters and settings. Between books like It and The Body, he helped to create a staple interpretation »

The first scene from Stephen King’s It is terrifically spooky

8 May 2017 3:17 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Despite the looming tower of Tim Curry’s impeccable performance as Pennywise the new two-movie version of Stephen King’s It seems very happy to carve out its own particular niche on our expectant hearts. The first trailer broke records and a few pairs of trousers, showing off the increasing terror faced by The Losers Club. The first film in this series focuses on the kids from Derry who face up against a demonic evil under the guise of a clown, the next film will focus on them as adults.

It was a sad day which saw the departure of original director Cary Fukanaga (and his choice for Pennywise, Will Poulter) however the first looks we have at Mama director Andy Muschietti’s take on the spine-chilling tale were very encouraging. Last night the MTV Awards gave us a new peek at the film, with close to »

Exclusive: Lana Parrilla Spills on Evil Queen's 'Challenging' Song & Connecting With 'Once Upon a Time' Fans!

5 May 2017 4:45 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

From Evil Queen to dancing queen!

This Sunday's highly anticipated musical episode of Once Upon a Time features a truly sensational solo from the famed Snow White villain, so we called up the on-screen queen herself Lana Parrilla to get the behind-the-scenes secrets on how she prepared for her "Ziggy Stardust moment" and the challenges that came with it.

"I wish that we would've done more than one musical episode -- that's how great it was!" Parrilla dished to Et over the phone while she was vacationing with her mother, Dolores Dee Azzara, in Spain last month.

"At first, I was nervous because I thought, 'Oh god, I'd better figure out how to really sing.!' I mean, the whole world is going to be watching, so I'm not going to pretend I'm a great singer," she explained. "I'm just going to do the best that I can. I kind of channeled my nerves into excitement, so I got »

13 Things You Never Knew About the Original It Movie

2 May 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

This September, the first half of the two-part film adaptation of Stephen King's 1986 novel, It, will be released. For those unfamiliar, the story follows a group of childhood friends who is terrorized by a shape-shifting, evil being that preys on the fears of its victims. Over 20 years later, the creature - which often takes the form of a clown named Pennywise aka "It" - returns, forcing the friends, now adults, to come together and protect the next generation as well as themselves. The Fall film, which features a cast of young up-and-coming actors (including Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise), will be so terrifying that it'll have you shaking in your boots. Yet, this isn't the first time the horror story has hit the screens. In 1990, the first adaptation aired on ABC as a miniseries, starring Rocky Horror Picture Show alum Tim Curry as the demented clown. Take a look at »

Newswire: Clowns were scary long before It, Stephen King says

12 April 2017 1:22 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

This September marks the second attempt to translate Stephen King’s massive, culrophobia-inducing novel It into audio-visual form, with the first of two planned movies dramatizing the evil that awakens to stalk the children Derry, Maine every three decades or so. (The first, Tommy Lee Wallace’s miniseries starring Tim Curry, came out in 1990—27 years ago.) And professional clowns, who only recently were cracking their greasepaint complaining about American Horror Story’s creepy clown, are not happy about it. But King says these (literal) clowns can’t place the blame on his shoulders: He was hardly the first to point out that grown adults in brightly-colored onesies making balloon animals are unsettling.

The clowns are pissed at me. Sorry, most are great. But...kids have always been scared of clowns. Don’t kill the messengers for the message.

It Remake: Why Stephen King's Story Needed a New Movie

9 April 2017 3:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Recently, New Line Cinema finally released the very first trailer for director Andres Muschietti's upcoming take on Stephen King's It, which is easily one of the author's most beloved works. The collective internet went absolutely nuts for it because, put simply, it is one of the best trailers to be released in quite some time. Part of this is probably being driven by the nostalgia that many of us feel for the 1990 version of It, which was done as a two-part TV miniseries. Though, it more or less served as a movie. Or two movies. However you want to look at it. Nostalgia can be a good thing, but this new and terrifying trailer proved that we really, truly need an It remake.

The new It trailer, according to Deadline, was viewed nearly 200 million times in the first 24 hours of its release. That shattered the previous record. A big part »

The New ‘It’ Trailer Is Better than It Deserves To Be

7 April 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I never understood the fanaticism that surrounded Stephen King’s It, particularly the mini-series that starred Tim Curry.  Although perfectly serviceable in its own right, it exhibited the worst traits of its author: over-long, largely confusing and far too entrenched in the Dark Tower series to really stand on its own. That last part, more than anything, has always been a sticking point for me.  What exactly is It?  Why does it transform into a spider?  What exactly is the significance of the turtle?  Read an entirely separate book series, and its related stories, and you might just figure that out.
