In 1978, Meryl Streep, already renowned for her work on the New York stage, grabbed the attention of moviegoers across the country with her Oscar-nominated turn in the Best Picture champ “The Deer Hunter.” That year, however, would seem minor in comparison to what was on the horizon in 1979.
Streep was about to work with three of the decade’s hottest directors – Woody Allen, at his most in-demand after “Annie Hall” (1977) and “Interiors” (1978); Robert Benton, whose “The Late Show” (1977) was a big hit; and Jerry Schatzberg, who won critical acclaim with “The Panic in Needle Park” (1971) and “Scarecrow” (1973).
The resulting trio of Allen’s “Manhattan,” Benton’s “Kramer vs.
In the video below, stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny explain just what happened at the end of Season 10 — a cliffhanger ending that creator Chris Carter wrote without a guarantee of there being a Season 11 — before we get a quick look at footage from the season to come, including some truly creepy shots that invoke memories of the original series’ classic monster-of-the-week installments.
Beyond more glimpses of Anderson going full action hero, you very briefly see proof that the Lone Gunmen are back (in some form, at least), that the Cigarette-Smoking Man (William B. Davis) is up to no good, and that Mulder and Scully aren’t sleeping alone.

Press Release: Los Angeles, October 24, 2017 – A rare and impressive prop of the Space Jockey aboard the derelict spaceship from Ridley Scott’s classic science fiction film will be auctioned by Nate D.
Here’s a look at an assortment of 31 films from Hulu that I think would be great movies to stream this October. I tried to give you guys a wide variety, too, hitting various sub-genres, so hopefully there’s a little bit of something for everyone in this list.
As far as high school horror films go, The Faculty has remained one of my very favorites for years now. Essentially, it’s Robert Rodriguez riffing on The X-Files, and who can resist that?
The original film, directed by Randal Kleiser, starred Joey Cramer as a 12-year-old boy who falls into a ravine and is knocked unconscious when walking through the woods in 1978. He regains consciousness in 1986 without having aged and with no memories of the past eight years. He eventually discovers that he was abducted by an alien spaceship.
Veronica Cartwright and Sarah Jessica Parker also starred in the film, while Paul Reubens voiced the flying saucer’s pilot. Brad Copeland (“Arrested Development”) was hired by Disney to write the first draft of the remake in 2009. In 2012, Disney hired Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly to write the script for the project as a potential directing vehicle for Trevorrow.
At that point, David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman were producing the remake through their Mandeville banner
The source novel for Alfred Hitchcock’s classic horror film The Birds is to be adapted again for TV by the BBC...
Don’t they ever stop migrating?
The Birds first landed in Cornwall, England, in Daphne du Maurier’s original 1952 book, and Alfred Hitchcock let them loose in Bodega Bay, California, when he made the book into one of his greatest horror films in 1963. Now, the BBC is bringing them back to rural Cornwall for an upcoming contemporary TV drama. The adaptation is likely to be more faithful to the book, rather than be a direct remake of the film.
The Birds will be written by Irish playwright and writer Conor McPherson, who adapted the novella as a stage play in 2009. McPherson also wrote the films The Eclipse and The Actors.
It'll be produced by Heyday Television, the joint venture of feature producer David Heyman (Harry Potter,
Scott’s choice to ultimately center his film around the strength of a female character was hardly the kind of thing that other late-’70s action-driven blockbusters dug into (screenwriter Dan O’Bannon first wrote Ripley as a male lead,
Since Alien burst onto the screen we’ve had three sequels, two spin-offs and, with this week’s release, Alien: Covenant, two prequels. That’s a lot of films for one creature to inhabit and the results have varied. There’s been a lot of debate over the years about which film is best,
Directed by Ridley Scott
Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Amy Seimetz and James Franco.
The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
There is a battle raging in Alien: Covenant. Not betwixt man and Xenomorph, but between director and studio. One of the biggest issues with Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was that it always felt like the director was trying to get away from the Alien franchise, but 20th Century Fox was always over his shoulder asking to put more references to the series. With Alien: Covenant, it feels like Scott clearly wanted to do a direct sequel to Prometheus, but Fox
It’s been a while since we saw her on the big screen, but Ellen Ripley lives on in books, audio dramas and games...

Now that Neill Blomkamp’s much-talked-about Alien 5 idea – which would have brought back Sigourney Weaver and offered an alternate sequel to Aliens, wiping Alien 3 from the canon - seems to be off the cards, chances are that we won’t see Ellen Ripley back on the big screen any time soon.
Rumours and rumblings suggest that Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel series (which began with Prometheus and will continue very soon with Alien: Covenant) may eventually feature an aged-down Weaver back in the
Kudos to the filmmakers for throwing us into the fire with frame one, though. I was genuinely interested because
“Silence is the most powerful scream.”
Rachel (Lauren Mae Shafer) is on the run from a serial killer (David G.B. Brown). I say run, I mean swim. She was drugged, dressed in scuba gear and then plunged in to the depths of a nearby frozen lake to drown. Unfortunately for the killer however, Rachel is something of a seasoned diver and won’t go down (or should that be sank?) without a fight. With her killer stalking her on the surface, Rachel must not only constantly outwit him, but also survive the freezing temperatures as well as literally keeping a float.
Now before you call me a cop out regarding my somewhat brief synopsis, let me just tell you that The Dark Below
With its bone-chilling soundtrack by multiplatinum recording artist Eric Bobo and a searing supporting performance by Veronica Cartwright (Alien, 24: Legacy), The Dark Below, which played several high profile genre film festivals – including Fantasia International Film Festival, FrightFest UK, Monsters of Film in Sweden and Toronto After Dark – will hit select Us theaters on March 10th. Check out the trailer and poster below:

Veronica Cartwright (“Alien,” “The Birds”) and Laith Nakli (“The Visitor”) have both been cast in the “24” revival, which debuts midseason on Fox.
Cartwright has joined as a series regular. She will play Margaret Donovan, Senator John Donovan’s (Jimmy Smits) mother. Described as well-heeled and connected, the character is formidable in business and politics and has lost very few battles in her life.
Nakli, in a recurring role, will portray one of the series’ bad guys. His character Kusuma is a battle-hardened jihadist and fighter.
Both new cast members join series star Corey Hawkins, who takes on the central role of Eric Carter in the reboot of the beloved action series, which is based on the original “24” that starred Kiefer Sutherland (who is an executive producer, but is not in the show, as he’s currently starring on ABC’s “Designated Survivor”).
