Bryan Fuller Teases His Idea For Hannibal Season 4, Says He’s Having Conversations About It

2 hours ago

As far as TV cancellations go, there’s not many that are more disappointing than Hannibal. A small screen adaptation of Thomas Harris’ novels, it brought one of the most iconic characters in cinema to television in a show that was absolutely excellent in every way imaginable. Polished, superbly acted, intelligent and twisted in all the right ways, it was a delight to watch and as such, when it was given the axe after just three seasons, fans were devastated.

Since then, there’ve always been rumblings about Hannibal potentially returning for more, with creator Bryan Fuller remaining hopeful that he’ll get to continue telling his story one day. Last we heard, he was looking to bring the cast back to adapt The Silence of the Lambs, with Fuller saying the following in December:

“I think the film adaptation is a perfect film, but there’s a lot of »

Watch The Striking Opening Minutes Of Daniel Espinosa’s Life

2 hours ago

Did you see Life when it was released in cinemas back in March? I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t, as it dramatically flopped, pulling in a meagre $30 million domestic on a $58 million budget. At the time, the film was widely criticized as being a blatant Alien ripoff and, with Alien: Covenant on the way, audiences seem to have figured they may as well wait for the real deal.

Well, Alien: Covenant is now here and it’s good, but it’s not quite the return to form we all hoped it would be. So, with the Life Blu-Ray set to be released on June 20th, maybe it’s time to reevaluate the movie? Let’s start with the first ten minutes, which has just been released by Sony Pictures and can be viewed above. The video showcases the film’s striking opening long shot, in which we »

Star Wars’ Stormtrooper Head-Banging Blooper Finally Explained

3 hours ago

Today is the 40th anniversary of the release of Star Wars, now known as Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. It’s about as iconic as a film can get and subsequently spawned the gargantuan media franchise that we all know and love today. Yet, beyond all the famous “Use the Force,” Death Star battles, and Mos Eisley Cantina stuff, there’s one tiny goof that fans have come to adore.

I’m talking, of course, about the famous Stormtrooper who bumps his head on a blast shield door. Until now, it’s been a little hazy who exactly was in the costume, but THR have finally figured it out: it’s actor Laurie Goode. Interestingly, Goode only got the role as the original man cast, Peter Dukes, called in sick at the last minute.

“On the second day of filming, I developed an upset stomach. By midmorning, »

New Mutants Eyes Blu Hunt And True O’Brien To Play Mirage

3 hours ago

New Mutants looks like it could have the potential to shine a light on some unusual corners of the X-Men universe. As it moves towards production, Fox and director Josh Boone are finalizing the casting of their gang of young mutants and they’ve picked an impressive array of young acting talent. So far, we’ve heard that 13 Reasons Why star Henry Zaga is to be playing Sunspot, that Game of Thrones alumnus Maisie Williams will be playing Wolfsbane and Anya Taylor-Joy will bring Magik to life, and just today, we got confirmation that Rosario Dawson will be playing Dr. Cecilia Reyes.

Now, we’re hearing that two young actors, The Originals Blu Hunt and Days of Our Lives True O’Brien, are being considered for the role of Mirage, a mutant with the power to create illusions of people’s fears or wishes. Of the two, some detective work by ComicBook. »

IFC Will Distribute Lars Von Trier’s The House That Jack Built

3 hours ago

Lars Von Trier is famously persona non grata at the Cannes Film Festival after he, uh, expressed sympathy for Adolf Hitler (never a good idea), but he seems to be doing quite well there regardless, as IFC have just acquired the rights to distribute his next feature, The House That Jack Built.

Set in the Us in the 1970s, the film follows a serial killer (Matt Dillon) who reportedly views every individual murder as a work of art. It’ll follow the highly intelligent man through five murders that chart his psychological development as a serial killer and will be told entirely from his point of view and explain precisely what he thinks ‘art’ is. This combination of artistic expression through extreme violence is extremely Lars Von Trier, so the film should prove fertile creative ground for him.

Apparently, the killer spends much of the movie in conversation with a »

Spider-Man Shows Off His New Suit In Latest Homecoming Promo

4 hours ago

Forget Armani or Hugo Boss, the best suit maker in the McU is obviously Tony Stark. Not content with forever refining his own Iron Man technology, he’s also provided gear to War Machine, Falcon and now his young protégée, Spider-Man. What’s more, he’s taken some tips from Apple and knows about the dirty consumerist fetish of quality unboxing, as we can see in this new TV spot for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

How else to explain style with which this Stark designed Spider-suit unfolds out of a briefcase surrounded by all manner of awesome-looking Spider-themed gadgets. Judging from what we see here, Spider-Man will be discovering new functions in the suit throughout the film – just within the trailers alone, we’ve seen tiny Spidey drones emerge from it, an emergency parachute and all manner of web-based chicanery. Even better, there’s a load of locked functions hidden by Stark »

Sam Raimi Came Very Close To Directing A “Wacky” Version Of The Fly II

4 hours ago

David Cronenberg’s The Fly is an all-time horror classic and might just be the finest body horror film ever made. Even three decades after it was released, its gross practical special effects still astonish, as does Jeff Goldbum’s twitchily committed performance as the unfortunate Seth Brundle. Despite its firm place in the cinematic canon, however, few recall its sequel, The Fly II.

Released in 1989, the film follows the orphaned Martin Brundle, Seth’s son, as he discovers that he’s got his own special kind of buzz about him. Directed by Chris Walas, the makeup and animatronics director on the original, the film features only one returning cast member (Geena Davis is replaced by Saffron Henderson) and the general consensus is that it’s an entirely unnecessary footnote to the original. It’s not all bad though, as it’s got a totally sweet gore moment where a »

It’s been just a day since HBO debuted that jaw-dropping full trailer for season 7 of Game of Thrones, and it’s left us hungry for anything new that we could find out about the series. Fortunately, Entertainment Weekly have stepped in to sate our craving with a magazine cover feature that reunites the Stark children and takes us behind the scenes of the show.

Seasoned viewers will remember the Starks being scattered across Westeros in the first season, and from there each has carved a path of violence, tragedy and rebellion as they circled to back to one another. Now, as the season 7 trailer promises, each of the Starks is about to face a hugely different set of problems over the course of the upcoming outing. The not-actually-dead-after-all Jon Snow is tightening »

Third Star Wars Anthology Movie Will Be Revealed Next Month

6 hours ago

Kathleen Kennedy, President of Lucasfilm, has revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair that the next Star Wars Anthology movie will be decided very soon. In fact, we could learn what it is as early as next month, if she’s to be believed.

“We haven’t identified it yet, but yes. We have a couple of things right now that we’re circling, and we’ll make a decision between the two pretty shortly. It’s probably for 2020, and we will make a decision by June.”

The film will follow in the footsteps of Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One and Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s still untitled Han Solo spinoff. These Anthology movies were, at one point, regarded with a certain amount of scepticism, with the worst case scenario that they’d be a forgettable cash-in between ‘proper’ episodes in the franchise.

Rogue One pretty much put that to bed, »

Game Of Thrones And The Walking Dead Are Having A Poster Showdown

The Walking Dead And Game Of Thrones Posters Gallery 1 of 3

Who will win the face-off between White Walkers and walkers? That’s the question posed by this fun competition between Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, represented by the duelling posters that you can see above. Each of the hugely popular shows has a new season on the way, though HBO’s hit is much closer than AMC’s, and each has their own fearsome monsters, so some wag at the marketing department has now decided to pit one against the other.

In the white corner are Game of Thrones‘ otherworldly creatures from the north, the White Walkers. George R. R. Martin describes them as “hard as old bones, with flesh pale as milk.” They’re such a feared enemy that it’s necessitated the construction of a massive »

Dark Knight III: The Master Race Covers Will Get Their Own Hardcover Collection

7 hours ago

This week, we brought word that Dark Knight III: The Master Race would be undergoing a slight name change upon its release as a collected edition, effectively being rechristened as Batman: The Dark Knight: The Master Race. Well, it appears that trend will continue with a companion book set to arrive this September.

If you’ve been keeping up with the threequel to Frank Miller’s immortal classic The Dark Knight Returns – or at least news pertaining to it – you’re likely aware that this limited series has seen an obscene amount of variant covers, particularly for the first couple issues. Normally, stuff like this appears as supplemental material in the back of its relevant trade, but if that were the case with this story, the book would’ve been as thick as the Yellow Pages.

Knowing that, DC has opted to release a 176-page tome (I told you »

Rosario Dawson Confirmed To Be Playing Dr. Cecilia Reyes In New Mutants

7 hours ago

Josh Boone’s New Mutants looks set to give Fox’s X-Men franchise a breath of fresh air. Described as “Stephen King meets John Hughes,” it’s purported to be almost a horror film that focuses on the twisted and unusual possibilities that come with mutant powers.

Earlier today, Rosario Dawson was reported to be joining the production, setting off a storm of speculation as fans wondered what role she’d be playing. Well, now we know. She’s set to show up Dr. Cecilia Reyes, a doctor and former member of the X-Men. The character manages the impressive feat of being simultaneously a mutant and a trauma surgeon in the Bronx, and is prized for her medical knowledge as much as her mutation. Her power is described as a “psioplasmic bio-field” which surrounds her body at all times and protects her from harm. In the comics, Reyes eventually learned »

Michael Beach Confirms Role As Black Manta’s Father In Aquaman

7 hours ago

Aquaman, the upcoming sixth entry into the DC Extended Universe, has one heck of a terrific cast list. With Jason Mamoa as the King of Atlantis, there’s also Amber Heard as Queen Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Vulcan and Temuera Morrison and Nicole Kidman as Arthur Curry’s parents. It doesn’t stop there, either, as it’s now been revealed that another important figure is also in the mix.

Actor Michael Beach was asked on Twitter this week if he’s playing supervillain Black Manta’s father in the movie and replied with a very cryptic, but also telling, response: “Yes or no… Correct!”

Yes or No … correct! https://t.co/khOOAPjSMa

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Will Not Have A Major Romantic Subplot, Says Rian Johnson

8 hours ago

I feel a great disturbance in the ‘shipping’ fan community, as if millions of voices are suddenly crying out in disappointment. Today’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi news appears to be focused on what’s not in the film rather than what is, and according to Rian Johnson, “[There’s] no one-to-one equivalent of the Han-to-Leia, burning, unrequited love. In our story, that’s not a centerpiece.”

Though Han and Leia’s romance subplot gave us one of the all-time iconic lines in the franchise (“I love you.” “I know”), it’s safe to say that Anakin and Padme’s romantic canoodlings in Attack of the Clones didn’t exactly burn up the screen with passion. Anyways, it’s not as if The Force Awakens left any obvious dangling romances undeveloped, though I’ll always hold out hope that Finn and Poe’s bromance will one day drop the ‘b’.

Arrow Season 5 Ends With Explosive Finale

8 hours ago

Seeing as how this past season of Arrow was deemed a return to form by many longtime viewers, it was quite pleasing to see that last night’s finale was one of the best in series history – if not the best. Thanks to it being the final phase in Prometheus’ deadly game along with featuring a slew of guest stars and effectively capping Oliver Queen’s five-year backstory in the flashbacks, it truly felt like everything had come full circle. But one aspect will undoubtedly cause conversation to run rampant from now through October: Death, and lots of it.

By now, we’re all aware that season finales present the most opportune time to kill off characters due to shock value and the reality that every actor’s contract has to expire at some point. With that, it came as no surprise that a few characters got the ax last night, »

Stranger Things Season 2 Monsters Will Make Demogorgon “Look Quaint”

8 hours ago

Among many other things, part of what made Netflix’s Stranger Things a super smash-hit when it arrived last summer on the streaming service was how much it leaned into its numerous horror movie influences.

At the crux of this, of course, was the terrifying creature nicknamed the “Demogorgon” by Mike, Eleven and their friends, which hails from the mysterious realm called the Upside Down. An unstoppable monster with a face like a Venus flytrap, it won’t be easy to top in the second season. Still, the showrunners think they might have actually managed it.

Stranger Things producer Shawn Levy spoke to YouTuber GoldDerby about the new season recently and promised that things will get much darker and more dangerous when the hit series returns.

“Will Byers is very much at the center of several intersecting challenges, threats in season two and I think overall the forces of evil »

Rooney Mara Is Ominously Observed In This New Picture From A Ghost Story

8 hours ago

Director David Lowery’s A Ghost Story was one of the big success stories of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, with critics describing it as unforgettable, ambitious and powerfully poetic. The recently released trailer seems to support those opinions, giving us a glimpse into a weird and moving alternative ghost movie in which the titular spook is a decidedly lo-fi dude in a sheet with eye holes.

Casey Affleck plays the titular ghost, returning home after his untimely death to solemnly haunt his grieving widow (Rooney Mara) as she mourns him. He soon realizes that as a ghost, time has become somewhat slippery, observing his wife getting over him and growing increasingly disconnected from his mortal life as the years slip through his spectral fingers. What follows is billed as “a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence.”

Supergirl Season 2 Blu-Ray Release Date And Extras Revealed

8 hours ago

Although the first season of Supergirl was no slouch, I agree with many viewers in saying that its sophomore run was a vast improvement. It wasn’t just that the show was finding its footing, but there’s the undeniable benefit that comes along with being a superhero series airing on The CW. In other words, it’s apparent that the network affords more creative freedom, thereby allowing comic book based shows to stay truer to their source material.

Actually, you need only look as far as the first couple episodes of season 2, which both featured Tyler Hoechlin as one of the most believable interpretations of Superman in live action – ever. But as much of a welcome addition he made as a guest star, the focus on Kara Zor-El was never lost as she found love with Mon-El, and even battled supervillain threats such as Cadmus, Parasite and Mr. Mxyzptlk. »

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams Adds Vera Farmiga To Its Impressive Cast

8 hours ago

Adaptations of Philip K. Dick stories are always welcome and soon, we’ll be getting a whole load of them thanks to Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams. This British/American co-production (exec produced by Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston) will consist of ten standalone episodes, each bringing to life one of Dick’s short stories. The currently announced adaptations are: The Commuter, The Impossible Planet, Crazy Diamond, Father Thing, Real Life, The Hood Maker and Kill All Others.

The show already boasts an impressive cast, including luminaries like Timothy Spall, Steve Buscemi, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard, Tuppence Middleton and many more. Now, it’s been announced that Bates Motel and The Conjuring star Vera Farmiga has climbed on board. She’s set to appear in director Dee Rees’ Kill All Others, playing a demagogic politician who makes a shocking statement that encourages citizens to commit acts of violence, which »

Ryan Murphy Continues To Tease American Horror Story Season 7 On Instagram

9 hours ago

American Horror Story season 7 remains shrouded in mystery. We know that it’s about the 2016 Presidential Election and we know that fictionalized versions of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are set to appear, but we still don’t know who the lead characters will be or what supernatural (or otherwise) menace will be at the core of the story.

That hasn’t stopped creator Ryan Murphy from posting cryptic hints on Instagram for the last couple of weeks though, previously teasing us with a drawing of a horrific elephant/clown/zombie thing and a pretty vague picture of the back of someone’s head, with blue hair. Connecting these dots requires some Sherlockian leaps of ingenuity and who knows whether they’ll pay off or not?

Fortunately, his latest post is a little more straightforward, hyping up the presence of new cast member Billie Lourd:
