The Walking Dead Honors Cinema’s All-Time Greats With Nostalgic New Posters

16 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You didn’t think AMC was going to sit back and let Stranger Things have all the fun now, did you?

As the Netflix darling continues to imitate cinema’s all-time greats in anticipation of its return on October 27th, AMC (via Bloody Disgusting) has rolled out a collection of new and nostalgic posters for The Walking Dead in honor of episode number 100, “Mercy.”

Reaching said milestone is no mean feat, particularly in the cutthroat business of television, and executive producer and director Greg Nicotero believes The Walking Dead‘s 100th episode – an episode that’s also doubling as season 8’s long-anticipated premiere – is cause for celebration. It’s seemingly chock-full of Easter eggs and nods to the past, but these old-school posters go one step further to pay tribute to cinema’s greatest hits.

Included in the gallery below are homages to The Thing, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, »

‘Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond’ Trailer: Jim Carrey Shows You How He Transformed Into Andy Kaufman

19 October 2017 7:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Any list of Jim Carrey’s best performances is bound to have his turn as Andy Kaufman in Miloš Forman’s “Man on the Moon” somewhere in the top five. Carrey earned universal acclaim for his turn as the comedian and performance artist, winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical/Comedy, and now he looks back at the process of becoming Kaufman in the new documentary “Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond.”

Directed by Chris Smith, “Jim & Andy” features never-before-seen footage from behind the scenes of “Man on the Moon.” The documentary chronicles Carrey’s artistic process and how he fully transformed into the legendary Kaufman, which included going method and remaining in character for much of production. The documentary premiered at the Venice Film Festival earlier this year. »

It: Chapter Two Could Be A Psychedelic Trip Into The Mind Of Pennywise

18 October 2017 4:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Pennywise the Dancing Clown, also known as The Eater of Worlds, is arguably one of Stephen King’s crowning achievements.

Much like the Boggart of Harry Potter, King’s killer clown is able to lure its victims (children, mostly) by assuming the form of their biggest fears – be it a burning mass of human flesh or, in the case of Stanley, a warped oil painting running amok. That nightmare fuel formed the spine of New Line’s recent adaptation and even now, over a month after its initial release, It continues to perform quite well at the global box office, recently smashing through $600 million worldwide.

It’s no wonder New Line and Warner Bros. wasted little time before issuing the green light on It: Chapter Two. A September 2019 release date is already in place, and we understand both Andy and Barbara Muschietti are prepared to reprise their roles as director and producer, »

Paul Reiser on Hulu Saving His Johnny Carson Comedy ‘There’s… Johnny!’ and Giving It a Premiere Date — Exclusive

13 October 2017 12:38 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After months of sitting in limbo, Paul Reiser’s period comedy “There’s… Johnny!” has finally been given a premiere date: All seven episodes launch November 16, on Hulu.

For Reiser, it’s a relief to finally get to show his pet project to the world. “There’s… Johnny!” had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year and was originally set to debut on NBC Universal’s Seeso digital platform in August. But then Seeso was shut down, leaving all of its original series hanging.

Some of Seeso’s existing programs, including “Harmontown,” were sold to another digital company, Vrv. After three or four months of conversations with various potential homes, “There’s… Johnny!” finally landed at Hulu, as part of an overall distribution deal the streaming service signed with NBCU.

Andy Signore Fired From ScreenJunkies for His ‘Egregious and Intolerable Behavior’

8 October 2017 8:42 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Another one bites the dust. Following Harvey Weinstein’s termination from the Weinstein Company earlier today, Andy Signore has been fired from ScreenJunkies for “egregious and intolerable behavior.” Signore, who created both the website and the Honest Trailers series for which it’s best known, was accused of sexual misconduct by several women earlier this week.

Here’s the full statement from Defy Media, Sj’s parent company:

Defy Media and Screen Junkies have today terminated Andy Signore’s employment, effective immediately. There is simply no justification for this egregious and intolerable behavior.

“In August, Defy’s Hr team was made aware of allegations made against Andy, at which time an investigation was launched. On Friday, new information became available and the scope and magnitude of his inappropriate actions became apparent. We are acting swiftly to address the concerns of the people affected, »

‘The Gifted’ Review: Fox’s ‘X-Men’ Series Would Benefit from a ‘Legion’ of Better Ideas

2 October 2017 1:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Perhaps the main issue with “The Gifted” is the same one facing most TV spinoffs of bigger properties: It feels like “X-Men”-lite.

Despite solid direction from Bryan Singer, who first successfully brought Wolverine, Cyclops, and Storm to the big screen in 2000, and above-average dialogue from creator Matt Nix, the pilot episode of Fox’s new superhero side story still comes across like it’s trying to be bigger than it really is, while simultaneously feeling far too familiar.

The Walking Dead could “absolutely” continue without Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes

1 October 2017 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While we’ve seen countless shock deaths in The Walking Dead over the years, once character who has always seemed safe is Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes. However, writer Robert Kirkman recently revealed that he doesn’t think Rick will make it to the end of the comic book series, and now it seems the TV adaptation could follow suit.

“I think it could,” Kirkman told EW when asked if the show could survive without its leader. “Andy is the leader of this show and his dedication to the show is absolutely inspiring. Everyone just looks up to him and he’s a huge part of this show. But we have a very strong ensemble, and there’s a lot of characters that could carry the show. The Walking Dead is a story very much about a world and a bunch of people inhabiting that world.

New Line Announces Release Date For It Sequel

25 September 2017 3:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We haven’t seen the last of Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

Mere weeks after hitting theatres, New Line has already assigned a release date to their It sequel, announcing that the film will be with us on Sept 6th, 2019. So, basically the exact same weekend that the first one opened on. And that makes sense, too, given how well the movie’s performed thus far at the box office.

Tentatively titled It: Chapter 2, the sequel will pick up with the Losers Club 27 years after the events of It. Given that, we’re unclear as yet whether the film will herald the return of Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Sophia Lillis and the rest of the gang, but assuming director Andy Muschietti and Co. incorporate flashbacks into the story, there’s a very good chance New Line’s sequel will feature both the original Losers Club and their adult counterparts, as the »

Why Darren Aronofsky Shot a Two-Hour Rehearsal of ‘mother!’ in a Brooklyn Warehouse

18 September 2017 9:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Darren Aronofsky didn’t only want to rattle audiences out of their comfort zone with his seventh feature, “mother!” He also wanted to create a challenge for his team of long-time collaborators by shaking up his approach. “We had been doing the same thing for a long time and I wanted to try a different process to see what would happen to the team if we did something where it wasn’t so much pre-production,” said Aronofsky in an interview with IndieWire.

After writing the script in what the director called a five day “fever dream” and casting the film – the pieces quickly falling together once Jennifer Lawrence signed on as the lead – Aronofsky developed the story during a secret three month rehearsal in a Brooklyn warehouse. The director started the process with Lawrence and co-star Javier Bardem in an effort to flesh out their characters and find the “real »

Review: It (2017)

15 September 2017 7:33 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Incredible to think that after the plethora of Stephen King film adaptations over the years (this year alone boasts five), that his beloved Horror story It, has – until now – not had a big screen retelling. The nearest we have gotten is the flawed but ambitious Tommy Lee Wallace Mini-Series from 1990, which featured an iconic turn by Tim Curry as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. However, if you only have this version of the story in mind upon entering Andres (or Andy as he is credited) Muschietti’s adaptation, you may be a little startled, as this is far darker, far more intense and truly the king of King adaptations.

Utilising the dark cinematography (by Chung-Hoon Chung) and CGI-aided scares that helped him make a mark with his 2013 debut Mama, Muschietti beautifully and savagely captures the essence of the source material, while leaving a distinctive imprint of his own. Set mostly in »

It director talks box office success and sequel plans

12 September 2017 12:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The director of It, Andy Muschietti, has been speaking about the film’s huge success and plans for a sequel.

It was predicted to be a success at the box office, thanks to a mixture of an iconic villain, scary trailer, and 80s nostalgia gripping society. But the Stephen King adaptation was not expected to blow the box office apart.

Breaking nearly every record it could think on its way to a $123 million domestic box office opening, It is now well and truly on top of the world.

Andy Muschietti, who directed the movie, with Barbara Muschietti producing, spoke to Variety about the movie’s success, being asked about their initial predictions.

“I had a premonition like five months ago” said Barbara, “that it would do $80 [million in its opening weekend]. I have no idea why, people kept telling me that I was insane, and I actually turned out being wrong — because it turned out to be higher. »

Taking Toronto’s Pulse: Fuzzy Awards Picture, More Politics

12 September 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Toronto Film Fest has offered plenty of A-list talent, including appearances from George Clooney, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lawrence. But the fest approaches its midpoint with no blockbuster film sales or clear-cut best picture contender. From the looming presence of Trump to meaty female-driven projects, here are five takeaways from the Canadian gathering.

Lack of Awards Season Favorites

“Downsizing,” “The Shape of Water,” “Mudbound” and “The Upside” all have their fierce partisans but also a fair share of detractors. Other films, such as “The Current War,” were met with a tepid response when they debuted over the weekend. The result is that this year’s festival has yet to host the kind of unadulterated best picture Oscar front-runner that past gatherings have spotlighted. So far, there’s no “La La Land” or “Moonlight” or “Spotlight” that festival-goers can know for certain is going to be getting a ticket to the Academy Awards.
