Cujo Will Return in The Dark Tower Movie

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Dark Tower, after years and years of waiting for an adaptation, is finally coming to the big screen in just a few short months. The trailer for the movie surfaced not long ago, giving us our first look at the upcoming big screen version of Stephen King's epic series. The books contain a lot of crossover between his books and it looks like the movie will be keeping that up as well. The author has confirmed that, among other Easter eggs, the killer dog Cujo will be making an appearance in The Dark Tower movie.

The legendary horror author recently spoke with IGN about the upcoming Dark Tower adaptation. While talking about some Easter eggs in the movie, and it looks like there will be a lot, Stephen King revealed his personal favorite, Cujo, which is one that wasn't in the trailer. Here's what he had to say about it. »

The Scariest Scenes in TV History — IndieWire Critics Survey

14 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

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: What is the scariest moment or scene on TV?

Ben Travers (@BenTTravers), IndieWire

Though there are moments within “Penny Dreadful” (the seance) and “The X-Files” (“Home”) that left me spooked, the title for scariest TV scene has to go to the only show to give me nightmares — actual, legitimate nightmares. After watching the first two episodes of “Hannibal,” I woke up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat and haunted by a bright red room with blood running down the walls — twice! Two weeks in a row, “Hannibal” ruined my peaceful slumber, and I had to stop watching the show live (and during the night entirely). Each week, »

Fargo creator Noah Hawley: ‘I'm Stanley Kubrick without the Ocd’

22 May 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

On the eve of the third season of his freewheeling Coen brothers spin-off, the superstar showrunner talks us through his ‘20-year overnight success’

Confidence doesn’t seem to be something that Hollywood’s current golden boy, Noah Hawley, is short of. When I suggest that he’s being heralded as “the Kubrick of television” – pushing the boundaries of prestige programming and its visual effects in a not dissimilar way to that in which Dr Strangelove, The Shining and A Clockwork Orange did in 20th-century cinema – he does not (as I suspect a British counterpart might) dismiss the mantle with protestations of humility, false or otherwise. “I’m Kubrick without the Ocd,” he chuckles instead, and proceeds to recommend Jon Ronson’s documentary Stanley Kubrick’s Boxes to me, about the celebrated film-maker’s obsession with achieving the perfect storage solution.

We Didn't Expect These to Be the Most Popular Stephen King Book Quotes

19 May 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Whether you've been a lifelong Stephen King fan or you're just now getting around to checking out some of his timeless (and usually terrifying) novels, you have to admit that the man is a genius. Not only does he tell insane stories, he also always weaves a few astute observations about human nature into his books. I'm not surprised that people tend to highlight certain passages of his, but I am surprised by which ones people have highlighted the most. Related5 Movies You Didn't Know Came From Stephen King According to Kindle's data, the most popular quotes in all of his books are below, and five out of 10 are from King's 2011 time-travel thriller, 11/22/62. Classics like Carrie and It didn't even make the list, but there at least a couple from The Shining in there. 11/22/63: "But stupidity is one of two things we see most clearly in retrospect. The other is missed chances. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Filmworker’

19 May 2017 1:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stanley Kubrick had many compulsions, like his famous fear of flying, and one of them was privacy. Considering what a unique superstar of a filmmaker he was, he succeeded in leading more or less his entire life outside the media fishbowl. That’s why after a certain point (around the post-“2001” late ’60s, when he was still transitioning from major Hollywood director to monomaniacal living legend), there is so little up-close coverage of who he was, on and off the set. Recently, though, a lot of Kubrickiana has begun to seep out of the woodwork, some of it gathered into termite-art documentaries like “Stanley Kubrick’s Boxes” (about his vast collection of memorabilia) or “S Is for Stanley” (about Kubrick’s relationship with his long-time Italian chauffeur and personal assistant).

Filmworker” is the best of these films yet. Directed, shot, and edited by Tony Zierra, it’s a portrait of Kubrick’s right-hand man, »

5 Movies You Didn't Know Came From Stephen King

19 May 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Like it or not, you can't throw a rock in the cinematic universe without hitting a Stephen King book adaptation. Many of the best horror movies of all time originated in the brain of King, from Stanley Kubrick's mindf*ck, The Shining, to Misery, a horror movie so exceptional that it earned Kathy Bates an Oscar. But we can't just stop there. Did you know King has also written quite a few books outside the horror realm, and some have been adapted into wildly and critically acclaimed films? We're leaving the scary movies behind to give you a different kind of surprise twist. »

The Pros and Cons of Looking Back: Close-Up on John Carpenter’s "Christine" and "Starman"

14 May 2017 3:27 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. John Carpenter's Christine (1983) is showing May 4 - June 3 and Starman (1984) is showing May 5 - June 4, 2017 in the United Kingdom.ChristineWas it too dark? Too bleak? Too gory? Did it have the misfortune of opening when American moviegoers were flocking to E.T.? Either way, when John Carpenter's The Thing landed in the summer of 1982, with an apocalyptic cliffhanger and the most surreally grotesque, tactile, gooey monster effects you never realized could be put on film, it fizzled. "It was hated," Carpenter later recalled at a screening in Los Angeles. "Hated by fans. I lost a job. People hated me. They thought I was this horrible, violent—" He trailed off and joked, "And I was." The audience laughed, because by now The Thing's exalted place in movie geek culture is secure: an exquisitely paranoid horror classic and arguably the crown »

Toy Story 3, and its horror movie undertones

10 May 2017 1:42 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison May 18, 2017

For a family-friendly film, Toy Story 3 is steeped in horror. With spoilers, we take a look...

This article contains spoilers for Toy Story 3.

In August 2010, a couple of months after Toy Story 3 was released in Us cinemas, the chair of the MPAA Classification and Ratings Administration admitted that they might have made a mistake in giving the film a G rating.

Speaking on industry podcast The Business, Joan Graves said that based on feedback they had received from parents since the film's release, Toy Story 3 should have been given a PG rating “at least”, because of a climactic scene in which Woody, Buzz and friends find themselves sinking into an incinerator like rubbish. Graves went on to say that the film changed their approach to animated family films, and that they would no longer give these movies “the benefit of the doubt” in »

Why Universal's Stephen King Theme Park Ride Never Happened

5 May 2017 4:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you are a Stephen King fan, 2017 is going to be a great year for you. The Dark Tower movie adaptation is finally happening, after the project spent years in development, a new, terrifying version of It is one the way, Castlerock is heading to Hulu, and the author has a new book coming out. So what could possibly make this year better for fans of the horror icon? How about a theme park ride? It turns out that almost happened not once, but twice, and we have some details on why these awesome sounding attractions never came to be.

Per Bloody Disgusting, the time that Universal Studios Florida was toying with doing a Stephen King themed attraction was much closer to happening. There aren't a lot of details known about the horror-themed ride that never was, but Bloody Disgusting did manage to unearth some details about how the ride would have ended, »

The Dark Tower: Trailer Analysis

4 May 2017 11:05 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.

Stephen King fans were a buzz earlier this week when the long awaited trailer for The Dark Tower debuted online. Starring Idris Elba as Roland The Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as The Man in Black, the story is a sort of sequel, sort of reinvention of the classic book series from Stephen King. Young Jake Chambers discovers another dimension called Mid-World. Discovering an evil force is intent on destroying The Dark Tower, Jake relies upon Roland Deschain, the last of a mystical brand of knights called Gunslingers, to help stop The Man in Black before all of reality is destroyed.

The opening of the trailer was a fun throwback to the third novel, The Waste Lands. Jake Chambers is having visions of an other worldly place. His shrink tells him what he saw was simply a dream and to ignore the whole thing. »

The Dark Tower trailer features Easter eggs for The Shining and It

4 May 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday fans got their first look at the long-awaited trailer for the film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series of novels, but tucked away in the background of Matthew McConaughey’s Man in Black unleashing hell on earth and Idris Elba’s Gunslinger performing one of the sickest looking reloads in cinematic history is a photograph of the Overlook Hotel present in arguably the author’s most famous work, The Shining.

There is also a brief shot of young hero Jake stumbling across a destroyed circus with some balloons floating, hinting at Pennywise the Clown and It.

For those unaware, the different worlds found within The Dark Tower are used as a hub to connect all of Stephen King’s novels into a singular universe – something the film is clearly tipping its hat too with these references.

Shining and It Easter Eggs Discovered in The Dark Tower Trailer

3 May 2017 5:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

At long last, the very first trailer for the long-in-development adaptation of The Dark Tower has arrived. The movie comes out in just a few short months and we now have a good sense of what Stephen King's epic fantasy series looks like in live-action form. Those who have read the books know that The Dark Tower takes a lot of lore from other Stephen King books and ties it all together. So, quite appropriately, there are a few Easter eggs in The Dark Tower trailer to other Stephen King works, such as It and The Shining.

Sony's first trailer for The Dark Tower has quite a few people excited, but die hard fans of the novels will be quick to notice that the movie is going to be very different. That is because it isn't adapting any of the eight books directly. Instead, the movie is taking place »
