Todd McFarlane Shares an Update on His ‘Spawn’ Movie, Which He Compares to ‘Jaws’

Confession: I'm a bit of a Spawn fanboy. I was pretty young when the first issue dropped in 1992, so getting my hands on a copy felt like a forbidden, taboo achievement. I absolutely adore the 1997 HBO animated series featuring the incomparable Keith David voicing the title role, and I'll ever defend the admittedly pretty awful live-action adaptation o the same year starring the underrated Michael Jai White. So it suffices to say that I'm pretty excited and cautiously optimistic for creator Todd McFarlane's movie reboot on the property. "Cautious" because the micro-budget …

Keith David Says Churches Need Security Checks After Texas Massacre

  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_2b1vkemp"]] Keith David says the sad fact is places of worship have to increase security ... even if it means checking everyone at the door. We got the "Greenleaf" star -- he plays Bishop Greenleef -- at Lax where he said checking worshipers just seems necessary now in the wake the mass shooting in Sutherland Springs ... at least until Congress passes some serious gun control legislation. The way Keith sees it ... until mentally ill people are forbidden from owning guns,

Marvel's New Warriors Series is Looking For a New Home Now That it's No Longer Airing on Freeform

Marvel's has been developing a series adaptation of their comic New Warriors and it was originally set to air on Freeform. That's all changed now. The series will no longer air on Freeform and according to THR, Marvel is now trying to find a new home for it.

Apparently, Freeform couldn't seem to find a slot in their schedule for next year to fit the show into. Marvel has screened the pilot episode for test audiences already and according to the report, it's testing through the roof and has caught the attention of high-level Disney executives. That's a good sign! Dan Buckley, president of Marvel Entertainment said:

"We are extremely excited about Marvel’s New Warriors and look forward to finding the perfect partner to launch the series with in 2018.

According to inside sources, Disney isn't letting Marvel shop the project around to networks outside of the Disney organization, which

They Live, 1988.

Directed by John Carpenter.

Starring Roddy Piper, Keith David, Meg Foster, and George “Buck” Flower.

Synopsis:

An unemployed drifter arriving in Los Angeles looking for work who, thanks to a pair of special sunglasses, uncovers a mysterious conspiracy in which humanity has been enslaved by greed, consumerism, and ignorance by a sinister alien presence hiding in plain sight.

Well, we did it.

For the second year in a row, we’ve survived another 31 days of October Horrors.

This year we’ve looked at the wide variety of the kinds of horror the big screen can offer. We’ve had sci-fi horror, body horror, satirical horror, psychological horror, horror that arguably isn’t horror but this is my list so I’m talking about it anyway, and so on.

We looked at films with all manner of monsters from serial killers, aliens, space vampires, psychic teens, murderous hitch-hikers, Satan

Your Alternative Halloween Viewing Guide: Hidden Horror Gems to Make Movie Night Frighteningly Fun
Every Halloween, when you want to check out a horror movie to get your heart racing, or a hilarious scary movie send-up to celebrate the holiday with laughs, everybody seems to cycle back to some of the same old classics.

While the slasher movies we've all come to know and love are classics for a reason (see: Halloween, I Know What You Did Last Summer or Scream), it’s fun to dive a little deeper into the realm of obscure horror, where some of the truly great fright flicks hide in the shadows.

Check out Et’s suggestions for some of the great lesser-known gems of spooky cinema with this year's alternative Halloween viewing guide:

The importance of cats in horror cinema

Mark Harrison Oct 31, 2017

Want to enhance your horror movie? Make sure you sign up a cat...

This feature contains broad spoilers for several horror movies featuring cats, including Alien, Cat People, Drag Me To Hell, Fallen, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, Pet Sematary and The Voices.

The relationship between humans and cats over time has given way to a number of cultural impressions and outright superstitions. Ancient Egyptians associated them with gods. In the Middle Ages, they were linked with witches and killed en masse, which probably hastened the spread of the Black Plague through the rodent population. And in the modern day, it's interchangeably lucky or not if a black cat crosses your path.

Like anything with such a wide array of symbolic links, movies have presented cats as characters in different ways over the years. It's their abiding association with the supernatural – whether as an omen

Full Trailer For Netflix's Stretch Armstrong And The Flex Fighters Animated Series

Netflix has released a full trailer for their upcoming animated series Stretch Armstrong and The Flex Fighters. The series was inspired by the classic late 70's-early 80's action figure that kids could stretch. The series has a very different kind of tone and vibe as the original toy, but it looks like a fun series that the kids will enjoy.

The story follows a high school student named Jake Armstrong and his two best friends Nathan Park and Ricardo Perez and they are accidentally exposed to an experimental chemical that forever changes their lives. They are transformed into unlikely heroes who embark on a series of adventures.

Blu-ray Review – The Thing (1982)

The Thing, 1982.

Directed by John Carpenter.

Starring Kurt Russell, Keith David, Wilford Brimley, T.K. Carter, David Clennon, Richard Masur, Charles Hallahan, and Joel Polis.

Synopsis:

A group of researchers in Antarctica fall foul of an alien organism that can mimic anything it comes into contact with, resulting in paranoia as the trust between the team crumbles.

Given that the special editions of this title sold out within a couple of hours, prompting Arrow Video to run out a few extra to satisfy demand, you can be sure that John Carpenter’s 1982 sci-fi/horror The Thing still remains a popular title amongst connoisseurs and collectors alike. So with that in mind, does this movie really need to be sold to you? Does it need a plot analysis? Of course it doesn’t, because you already know what you’re in for when you put that shiny Blu-ray disc into your player

Todd McFarlane still planning new Spawn animated series

A few years ago, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane revealed that he was developing a new animated series based upon his comic book character, even going so far as to unveil some early concept art for the potential show.

McFarlane has of course since found the funding for his long-planned live-action feature film reboot, which is gearing up to go into production in February, and now he has revealed to Screen Geek that he’s still hoping the animated series becomes a reality.

“I’m going to get the [Spawn] movie out and then we still have the rights for TV and animation and we’ll just figure it out,” said McFarlane. “I’ve also got to figure out how to get Keith David in my movie, too. Just for one line.”

Todd McFarlane's Spawn Might Also Be Getting a New Animated Series

On top of the new live-action actor Spawn movie that is being written and directed by Todd McFarlane, it sounds like we might also eventually see a new animated series!

I don't know if you remember or not, but back in the late 90s HBO ran three seasons of an animated Spawn series that was freakin' fantastic! If you've never seen that series before, you really need to check it out. Spawn was voiced by the great Keith David, and the series won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animation Program.

When talking to Screen Geek about the what else was in store for the Spawn franchise, Todd McFarlane said:

"I’m going to get the movie out and then we still have the rights for TV and animation. We’ll just figure it out."

October Horrors 2017 Day 10 – The Thing (1982)

The Thing, 1982.

Directed by John Carpenter.

Starring Kurt Russell, Keith David, Wilford Brimley, T.K. Carter, and David Clennon.

Synopsis:

The crew of an American research facility in the Arctic is forced to battle with a shape-shifting alien life form that is able perfectly to mimic the appearance and characteristics of any living thing it comes into contact with, including various members of the crew themselves.

For horror fans, John Carpenter is a legend. From the pioneering slasher horror of Halloween to the cult hits of Escape from New York and Big Trouble in Little China, Carpenter has crafted an eclectic career of numerous cinematic cult classics (and let’s face it, more than few duds).

I heaped praise on his iconic Halloween in last year’s October Horrors, and this year I thought I’d continue the trend, so this time around we’re going to be spotlighting a whole

TV Critics Pick the Best Animated Voice Actors of All Time — IndieWire Survey

TV Critics Pick the Best Animated Voice Actors of All Time — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Who is your favorite voice actor for animated characters on TV? Why?

Dave Trumbore (@DrClawMD), Collider

My knee-jerk reaction was either Kevin Conroy or Mark Hamill for their roles as Batman/Bruce Wayne and The Joker, respectively, because “Batman: The Animated Series” is always on my mind. But thinking a moment more, my favorite voice actor (and arguably the best in the biz) is Frank Welker.

‘Rick and Morty’: 12 Guest Stars Who Make Season 3 Worth Re-Watching

‘Rick and Morty’: 12 Guest Stars Who Make Season 3 Worth Re-Watching
Rick and Morty” is one of the best-looking animated series on TV. As high-concept as these travels through technicolor dreamlands and psychedelic wormholes can get, “Rick and Morty” wouldn’t be what it is without some talented performers bringing the show’s characters to life.

In Season 3, series co-creator Justin Roiland did more of the heavy lifting than ever before (including anchoring an entire episode by his lonesome). But, as usual, this now-finished season also drew on some incredible voice talent for some one-off delights. Some of these guest stars were such a natural fit for the show that it’s surprising it took this long for the show to utilize their talents. (How did two whole seasons go by before a pair of “Community” folks showed up?)

Rick and Morty Season 3 Episode 10 Review – ‘The Rickchurian Mortydate’

Liam Hoofe reviews Rick and Morty’s season 3 finale…

Rick and Morty season 3 has arguably been the show’s best season to date, and it came to a close this past weekend with the season ‘The Rickchurian Mortydate’, an episode that did everything a season finale could be expected to do – wrap things up thematically, and set up loads of potential storylines for the following season.

Let’s get rid of the elephant in the room first, shall we? When promos dropped last week, revealing that the President of the United States was going to be involved in this episode, fans everywhere began to speculate that ‘The Rickchurian Mortydate’ would see the return of Evil Morty, who was seen last seen being elected as President of the Citadel. This turned out to be an effective bit of trolling from Harman and Roiland, as the character was not even referenced in the episode.

Rick And Morty season 3 episode 10 review: The Rickchurian Mortydate

3.10 The Rickchurian Mortydate

Maybe it was the long wait before it returned, or maybe it’s the fact that it feels like we only got nine episodes because one had already aired months previously, or maybe it’s just that I was having such a gosh darn good time and time flies when etc., etc. Whatever the reason, season three came and went too soon.

Season one was chock-full of character development and world-building. Season two was generally more content to goof off. Season three struck a decent balance between both: there was quite a

‘Rick and Morty’ Review: Action-Packed ‘The Rickchurian Mortydate’ Bids Goodbye to Season 3 with a Wink and a Smile

‘Rick and Morty’ Review: Action-Packed ‘The Rickchurian Mortydate’ Bids Goodbye to Season 3 with a Wink and a Smile
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for the “Rick and Morty” Season 3 finale, Episode 10, “The Rickchurian Mortydate.”]

When the logline for “The Rickchurian Mortydate,” the Season 3 finale of “Rick and Morty,” was released, there was plenty of speculation that what the president referenced in the episode description would be Evil Morty, the mastermind revealed at the end of “The Ricklantis Mixup.” A more mythology-obsessed show might have gone that route, building on the success of the season’s standout episode and threading together the C-137 timeline with the consequences of Rick and Morty’s actions in the broader multiverse.

That “Rick and Morty” instead said farewell to Season 3 with an unexpectedly self-contained musing on the nature of obligation and family doesn’t make the show any less ambitious. But it does indicate a show segueing briskly into its offseason, wrapping up some thematic loose ends in a way that didn’t outdo its Season 3 predecessors, but still gave viewers plenty to latch onto, visually and philosophically.
