The post PBS to Tell the True Story of Edgar Allan Poe appeared first on Dread Central.
As usual, the premise was simple: Each contestant spun a "wheel" to receive a famous name and (often comical) topic, and the host and guest volleyed back and forth with no clear winner. Fallon mimicked the rap-metal vocalist – whose name was misspelled "Zak" – ordering in a McDonald's drive-thru. An already-cackling Questlove triggered a Rage-styled guitar riff, as
Directed by John Huston.
Starring Jack Nicholson, Kathleen Turner, Anjelica Huston, Robert Loggia, John Randolph, William Hickey, and Lee Richardson.
John Huston’s penultimate movie, Prizzi’s Honor, arrives on Blu-ray, but the bonus features leave a bit to be desired. You get trailers for five other movies and a commentary track featuring film historians Howard S. Berger and Nathaniel Thompson. It’s still a worthwhile purchase if you’re a fan, though.
If you approach director John Huston’s Prizzi’s Honor with a frame of mind shaped by such films as The Godfather trilogy and Goodfellas, you’ll likely find yourself thrown by this movie’s tone. In fact, you might think that Huston was attempting a mob film only to fall flat, but the reality is that he was making a mob movie as seen through the lens of dark humor.
As far as recent horror titles go, be sure to keep an eye out for Demon, Inconceivable, Timebomb, The Hollow One, The Evil in Us, and Safe Inside. Warner Bros. put together a quad pack Blu-ray set featuring four Stephen King classics (It, Salem’s Lot, The Shining, Cat’s Eye) undoubtedly to get everyone ready for Pennywise next month, and Paramount is keeping busy with several Blu-ray re-releases, including Clue, The Addams Family, and Galaxy Quest.

1967 The Whisperers premieres in London. It's about an old poor woman living in solitude who is beginning to lose her grip on reality. Dame Edith Evans sterling work was instantly lauded - she won Best Actress at Berlinale and from such disparate groups as the Nyfcc, Nbr and the Golden Globes. She landed her third and final Oscar nomination in the Best Actress lineup (sadly only the winner, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner's Hepburn, was less than superb in that shortlist!). At the time Evans was the oldest Oscar nominee of all time in any acting category having just turned 80 years old. That record has since been undone but she's still the third oldest lead actress nominee after Jessica Tandy

Off The Cliff: How the Making of Thelma & Louise Drove Hollywood to the Edge, by Becky Aikman, chronicles how Jodie Foster and Michelle Pfeiffer were slated for the lead roles, but had to turn them down after production was delayed. Once the news was out, Hollywood’s top actresses jockeyed for the plum roles.
“It seemed as if every agent who represented anyone with a vagina and a pulse besieged Pathé and Ridley company for a shot,
On the official Dolph Lundgren Instagram, the actor posted a photo where he's seen wearing a harness for wire work, revealing that wire work is a "good core workout." He's not in full costume here either, but perhaps these rehearsals do indicate that we're getting closer and closer to seeing him on the set in full costume. Still, even if that does happen soon, it's entirely possible that we won't get an official first look at King Nereus. Regardless, this is the first updates we've seen from the set in quite awhile, following a set photo that surfaced last month featuring the first meeting between Aquaman and Mera.
The character of King Nereus is quite a recent one in the DC Comics pantheon, created by DC Films president Geoff Johns and Paul Pelletier, debuting in Aquaman Vol. 7 #19 (June 2013). This character rules an underwater kingdom known as Xebel, the homeland of Mera, who Nereus claims as his own, as he formulates plans to kill Aquaman. While it remains to be seen if this particular story line will be used in the movie, Jason Momoa teased this Aquaman movie will be based on the New 52 reboot comics, which is where King Nereus was introduced. Nereus' primary power is Hydrokinesis, allowing him to manipulate water in any way, although it remains to be seen if the movie version of Nereus will retain the same powers.
The video was posted on Twitter by a user named MAHDi, who revealed that he found this video on Dolph Ludgren's Snapchat. He also refers to the Aquaman secret working title, Ahab, which was revealed back in December, long before filming actually started. Filming is expected to last throughout the summer in Australia, with another report revealing that the production has set up a fall shoot in Italy. There will reportedly be scenes filmed at Castle of Venus in Erice, on the island of Sicily, just off the coast of Italy. No details have been released about what exactly is being filmed there.
While very little about the story has been revealed, director James Wan has confirmed that the DC Comics character Aqualad will not have a presence in this movie. Star Jason Momoa has described Aquaman, which hits theaters on December 21, 2018, as a "coming of age story," while director James Wan has hinted at some romantic adventure elements, comparing this story to the iconic 1980s movie Romancing the Stone, starring Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. While we wait for more plot details, take a look at the set video and photo for Aquaman.

Bottom Line: As he embraces his mid-40s, Jude Law has morphed from British golden boy to globally bankable character actor. His range is wide, from tragic robot Gigolo Joe in Steven Spielberg’s “A.I.” to Robert Downey, Jr.’s comedy sidekick Dr. Watson in Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster “Sherlock Holmes” franchise. Still stunningly handsome, Law is gaining grit and gravitas as he gets older. But there’s a sense he’s still holding back.
Latest Misfires: Law took on evil power-monger Vortigern opposite Charlie Hunnam as Arthur in Ritchie’s attempt to similarly update “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,
