Bryan Fuller and Michael Green exit American Gods season 2 as showrunners

In a bit of surprising news, Bryan Fuller and Michael Green are leaving Starz’s American Gods as the series’ showrunners. They will no longer be part of the show going forward despite its active development for the second season.

American Gods premiered on Starz earlier this Spring and earned a quick renewal after it became a ratings hit. The reason why Fuller and Green have exited the series hasn’t been confirmed yet, though Deadline reports it is because of the series’ budget. According to them, the first season’s budget had grown to Game of Thrones levels and Dante di Lorento, the new chief of American Gods‘ producer FremantleMedia North America, wanted to cut the second season’s budget, leading to Fuller and Green’s departure.

Despite their exit, Fuller and Green have apparently written more than half the episodes for the 10-episode second season, which Starz is aiming for a mid-2018 premiere.

Sundance Wish List: 70 Films We Hope Will Head to Park City in 2018
The fall is often perceived as the launch pad for awards season, as numerous prestige films compete for attention in the final weeks of the year. For much of the film community, however, it’s also the first major window into movies worth talking about next year. That’s because the Sundance Film Festival lineup typically drops in the middle of November, shaking up the holiday season with a mixture of familiar faces and newcomers who could make an impact in Park City this January. With programmers working in overdrive to complete the lineup in the coming weeks, and filmmakers praying to break through as the deadlines loom, we’ve cobbled together as much intel as we can for this extensive preview featuring dozens of promising titles that stand a good chance at making their way to Sundance this year. As usual, we’ve tried to avoid projects that are

‘Willard/Ben Limited Edition’ Blu-ray Review

When people hear the Michael Jackson song Ben, many don’t know that it was written for a movie. With the remake of Willard, a lot of horror fans were made aware of the story of a boy and his rats. Now both are available in the Willard/Ben Limited Edition Blu-ray box set.

Willard Styles (Bruce Davidson) is somewhat of a social misfit. Made fun of by his co-workers and pushed out of his father’s company his only friends are rats, especially Ben and Socrates. When Socrates is killed at his workplace, Willard decides to get revenge on the people who have wronged him, with his rats. Bruce Davidson plays the part of Willard well, and having Ernest Borgnine as his nemesis, you really do pity him. That is why the relationship with the rats is so endearing to the audience. They give him an escape from the

The Bottom Shelf: Willard, Ben, Street Trash and The Wonderful Worlds of Ray Harryhausen

Nick Aldwinckle Oct 30, 2017

This month's round up of genre DVDs and Blu-rays features Ray Harryhausen, Willard, rats on the rampage and more...

The underappreciated ‘nature gone wild’ porn horror movie subgenre has a somewhat patchy history, with a viewer’s search more likely to end up in some SyFy channel Megapterranoshark Versus Crocosaur cul-de-sac than something of the calibre of a Jaws or Arachnophobia. Sharks, spiders and gators are all well served, though (alongside the glaring lack of a movie adaptation of Guy N. Smith’s glorious Night Of The Crabs books) rodents have had something of a raw deal.

Film Review: No New Frights in Store for ‘Happy Death Day’

Chicago – “Happy Death Day” has a “Groundhog Day” gimmick, but that’s about it, offering essentially an ‘80’s style slasher flick with the hope that with a little cosmetic window dressing will help it appeal to an audience in 2017… Live, Die, Repeat. That’s all this film offers with precious few improvements to justify its existence.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

The story, such as it is, involves a self obsessed sorority sister named Tree (Jessica Rothe). She acts the way sorority sisters always do in movies like this, meaning she’s a bitch with a capital B, mean to her roommate, sleeps with her married professor, rude to her own father, and seems to live her life aiming for “Mean Girls” type perfection. She begins the day waking up in the dorm room of a college boy (Israel Broussard) she met after a few too many drinks the night before, and ends her
