Jack is back. The BFI have unveiled a brand new trailer for the upcoming UK re-release of the horror classic The Shining, directed by the one-and-only Stanley Kubrick. A full 144-minute digitally restored version of the film will be screening in a few UK cinemas around Halloween - you can find theater listings here. While I assume we've all seen this film and are quite familiar with most of it, it's always fun to watch a new trailer for a beloved classic film. Even Rodney Ascher, director of the Room 237 doc, commented on Twitter: "Impressive new trailer!" The Shining stars Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd, Scatman Crothers, Barry Nelson, Philip Stone & Joe Turkel. Redrum. "Demands to be seen on the big screen." Here's the new re-release trailer for Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, direct from BFI's YouTube: A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where »

And so we arrive at the second in our series of lookbacks at the film adaptations of Stephen King's work. And it's a bit of a special one.
The Film: Well, you likely know. Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) is a writer in need of a job and so he takes the opportunity to spend the winter at Colorado’s Overlook Hotel, up in the mountains. With him is his wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and his son Danny (Danny Lloyd). Danny has an imaginary friend named Tony who warns him that heading to the Overlook is a really bad idea. When there, Danny talks with the cook, Dick Halloran (Scatman Crothers) and the pair reveal that they can communicate telepathically, something which Dick calls ‘shining’. Soon, the family are left on »
15 years ago today, Star Trek: Voyager concluded its run on UPN. The series had launched the network (which has since merged with The WB to become The CW) with a two-hour pilot episode in 1995, while Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was still airing new episodes in syndication. It was the first Star Trek series to feature a female commanding officer in the lead role, with Kate Mulgrew playing Captain Kathryn Janeway before she went on to get TV attention again for Orange Is the New Black. Mulgrew reprised her role as Janeway in the 2002 feature film Star Trek: Nemesis. Voyager never garnered the adoration that fans had for the original series and The Next Generation, but it lasted for seven seasons on Upn from 1995 to 2001. Other notable May 23 happenings in pop culture history: • 1950: The Asphalt Jungle, one of Marilyn Monroe’s earliest films, opened in theaters. • 1964: Ella Fitzgerald »

If you met a time traveler from the future, what would you say to her? If your answer is “invite her to split the rent,” then you’re thinking like Em. Em (played by Gina DeVivo) is one of the three primary characters in Future Girl, a delightful new web series that can be found on the YouTube channel of co-star Amy Dallen.
Dallen is best known for talking about comics in a Geek & Sundry-supported vlog, and Future Girl’s premise would certainly work well as a graphic novel: Dallen portrays Curie, a time-travelling scientist who is living in the present in order to gather data for her grad thesis. Em is Curie’s down-on-her-luck roommate, and their third roommate is Viking (Heather Wood), a medieval warrior who Curie brings forward from the past.
The temporal disparity between the three roommates serves as the basis of Future Girl’s comedy, »
