Exclusive: Banner & Synopsis Hit For Dark/Web Segment 'Rideshare'!

20 June 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

The twisted world of Dark/Web is slowly approaching. If you’ve ever needed a reason to fear the world the internet, this upcoming series is sure to give you one. With its healthy combination of both serialized and anthological storytelling, Dark/Web seems poised to scratch an itch that a lot of consumers are having.

If you’re unfamiliar with the digital series, here’s the official synopsis:

"When Ethan (Elerding), Sam (McKissack) and James (Nardelli) find themselves the target of cryptic emails from someone posing as their childhood friend Molly (Gonzales), they assume she’s been the victim of an all-too-common hack. After they reach out to alert her, however, they discover that Molly’s been missing for months and no one has any idea what happened to her.As the emails keep coming, each containing a tale written by Molly, her friends realize that this may be more than just a sick joke. Someone has hidden information in the stories, details pulled from real life that point them to people and places from Molly’s past; clues that may lead them to their missing friend."

In addition to the killer premise, each episode consists of a standalone anthology segment woven into its narrative. Today, we have some news involving one of those segements: “Rideshare.”

Thanks to the producers of Dark/Web, we now have the official banner for “Rideshare.” The banner was created by Tim Nardelli, and it gives us just a taste of what we can expect.

This first segment of Dark/Web will make you think twice before hopping into your next Uber ride. Check out the official synopsis below:

"Leeland, family man and recently unemployed, takes a job at the Uber-like 'Rideshare' company. After months of driving late nights to make ends meet, the app begins communicating with him, telling him the ever darker secrets of his passengers and coaxing him to 'do' something about it."

"Rideshare" stars Graham Sibley, Molly Hagan, Brandon Scott, Wesam Keesh, Maria Breese, Jamie Lee Redmon, and features Julie Benz as Rideshare.

The segment is written and directed by Boman Modine, shot by Sara Garth, and produced by Michael Nardelli, Tim Nardelli, and Mario Miscione

Exclusive: Dark/Web - Training Day’s Julie Benz Joins The Digital Horror Series

18 April 2017 7:26 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

The internet may be a useful everyday tool that we take for granted, but at its core, it has the power to be devastating and deadly. In the darkest reaches of the web are the most horrifying of possibilities, and even if you’ve never been a victim yourself, chances are you’ve at least heard some terrifying stories involving the deep web.

The upcoming Lrm-exclusive digital series, Dark/Web, will be tackling some of those possibilities. The single story will be told over the course of the eight-part series, but embedded into each of the episodes are bite-sized “segments” that act as mini-anthologies within the show.

It’s been a good while since we’ve had an update from Dark/Web, but when it rains it pours!

How Spider-Man: Homecoming Fits Into The Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline

17 April 2017 12:06 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

The chronology of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films as a whole has been pretty straightforward. By and large, they tend to take place one after another in the same order as they were release. Of course, there are some exceptions. Captain America: The First Avenger was obviously a period piece, taking place decades prior to the rest of the Avengers’ origin stories (though it picked up right before The Avengers and after Thor, which puts it cleanly where one would expect in the timeline).  

Other than that one, perhaps the only questionable film is Doctor Strange, which sometimes seems to take place around The Avengers, and sometimes feels like it starts off around the time of Captain America: Civil War, which brings into question how long everything took to happen in the film itself. That’s neither here nor there, but the point is that for the most part, the »

Digitally De-Aged Sigourney Weaver In Future Alien Movies?

17 April 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Sigourney Weaver is 67-years-old. Let that sink in for a moment. I was raised on incredible science fiction movies like Ghostbusters, Galaxy Quest, and the Alien films (just the first three, let us never speak of Alien: Resurrection). In my mind, Weaver will always be eternally 30-something, an intensely charismatic actor who lent a dynamic physicality and a rich intelligence to some of my favorite sci-fi films. 

Time -- that unrelenting bastard -- eventually catches up to us all...unless you're a beloved character like Professor X, Princess Leia, Wolverine, and now (maybe) Ellen Ripley. For better or worse, through the magic of CGI, Hollywood has become increasingly invested in digitally replacing, facemapping, and de-aging actors. 

As has been widely reported, director Ridley Scott is considering many more Alien films beyond the upcoming Alien: Covenant. According to, Scott is planning to connect the dots between the original 1979 Alien and his new iterations, »

Justice League Actor Says His Scene Wasn’t ‘Comic Booky’

17 April 2017 9:37 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Today’s age of comic book movies really is an embarrassment of riches. Growing up, I remember assuming that any film based on my favorite comic book characters would likely fall short, and end up being a boring shadow of what I’d hoped it would be. Nowadays, we have the likes of Marvel Studios, Fox, and DC churning out ridiculously faithful fare that would be the envy of any comic book fan in decades past.

Of course, not every film is perfect. Marvel Studios and Fox don’t have perfect records, and the DC has had a hard time getting its own universe in order, and many tend to point to the tone established in Batman v Superman as one of the potential issues. The film was dark and grim, almost completely devoid of any humor. While that isn’t the only problem the flick had, it’s certainly the most cited, »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Rey’s Parentage Will Be Addressed, Says Director Rian Johnson

17 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

What in the world is up with Rey? That’s been a question on all Star Wars fans’ minds ever since we saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In a film franchise that tends to revolve around the Skywalker clan, it’s been unclear as to whether or not the new trilogy’s leading lady is actually of Skywalker descent, and if she is…which Skywalker? There’s no way it’s a giant coincidence that she happens to be incredibly force sensitive. Whoever she is, her parentage is going to be a big deal. Not just anybody could have such quick mastery of the Force.

However, in a franchise that has a tendency to sort of gloss over big details — and in a franchise where big answers can always be pushed over to the next film — it’s a valid concern that Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the next flick in the franchise, »

Split 2: M. Night Shyamalan Writing The Climax Of The Upcoming Sequel!

17 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

We may very well be in the middle of one of the greatest career renaissances in recent memory. M. Night Shyamalan is a filmmaker who started off his career with a bang. The Sixth Sense is still a flick that is highly relevant in the pop culture zeitgeist, and Shyamalan went to follow up that strong film with Unbreakable and Signs, proving that he was no one-hit wonder.

Of course, you can’t bring up Shyamalan without also bringing up the slump he fell into. There may be some debate as to when it started. Some say it started with Signs, some say The Village, but most can agree that his work started to get universally panned around the time of Lady in the Water. From The Happening through After Earth, it wasn’t clear if he would ever come back as the same creative force as he once was. »
