The Terminator series is making its third attempt at a trilogy. But would it be better as a one-off story, Ryan wonders...

Genisys probably seemed like a good idea at the time. After the so-so critical and financial performance of Terminator 3 and Terminator: Salvation, the fifth entry in the series would, as far as its producers were concerned, take the saga back to its glory days: the nightmarish chases of The Terminator and the eye-popping special effects of T2, widely regarded as the franchise's high-water mark. »
If you still haven't seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 yet, there will be some Spoilers below, particularly for one of the five Guardians 2 post-credit scenes. By this point, we're guessing that most people who wanted to see this superhero sequel have seen it alread. But if there are some that are still waiting for the Blu-ray and DVD release later this month, we're giving you a fair warning. This is your last chance to avoid spoilers for the Guardians 2 post-credit scene, which introduces a long-awaited character into the McU, with one artist offering a glimpse at what a certain actor may look like as this character.
If you have seen the movie and the five post-credit scenes, perhaps the most intriguing of these scenes is one where Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) from The Sovereign showcases the coccoon that will be used to give birth to Adam Warlock. Kevin Feige »
Last year it was announced that Idw Entertainment were developing a small screen adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s acclaimed comic book series Locke & Key, and now comes word that Hulu has officially placed a pilot order, with Carlton Cuse (Lost) set to executive produce and showrun and Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange) directing.
Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them… and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all!
“I love this story,” said Hill during last year’s announcement. “The seven years I spent working on Locke & Key was the happiest creative experience of my life and there still isn’t a day when I don’t think about those characters and miss visiting with them. The six »

Once again, fans have everything crossed as another Locke & Key adaptation effort presses forward with Scott Derrickson attached...
It's been a series of heartbreaks for fans of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez's Lovecraftian Locke & Key comic series who have pined for a TV or movie adaptation of the material up until now.
Along with other titles like Y: The Last Man and 100 Bullets, the extremely bingeworthy comics seemed to be amongst a new breed of visually and emotionally captivating stories that arrived piping hot and ready to serve up on screen in the 00s.
Locke & Key is getting another stab at becoming a TV series.
Hulu has given a pilot order to an adaptation of the Idw comic book, written by the comic’s author Joe Hill and executive-produced by Carlton Cuse (Bates Motel, The Strain), our sister site Deadline reports.
The horror/fantasy drama follows a family that, in the wake of the patriarch’s murder, moves from California to Massachusetts. There, the mother and her three kids move into an estate called Key House to be close to the deceased’s brother. »
There are no shortage of films churning out of Hollywood where gambling is a central theme. Rounders, Casino and many others remind us of the consequences when gambling, or an obsession with gambling, goes too far.
Sometimes Hollywood narrows their focus to go beyond the Blackjack tables and into the world of sports betting. Though films featuring sports betting in some way, shape or form don't roll off the tongue with the same ease as a more traditional gambling film, there is plenty of representation in this niche.
Here are some of what I consider the top sports betting-themed films worth checking out, especially with March Madness and endless office bracket pools just around the corner. All of them are at least a decade old and shouldn't be too hard to rent or watch on a streaming service.
