They all float in this first ‘It’ trailer

29 March 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Author Stephen King has had a very hit and miss track record when it comes to adaptations of his stories. For every Shawshank Redemption, The Shining and The Green Mile, there’s a The Lawnmower ManSleepwalkers and Maximum Overdrive. Even within some of his projects that are seen as a success, there can be weak moments. Take the TV mini-series based on his door-stop-thick novel, It – the first two thirds were fantastically freaky, spawning a generation of coulrophobics, but the last third is somewhat of a let down.

Hoping to rectify this is director Andrés Muschietti. His previous project Mama proved that he can do creepy, and this first trailer for his version of It brings all the scares.

Starring Midnight Special‘s Jaeden Lieberher, and Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard, this film will form the first of two movies. This one will tell the story of the ‘Loser’s »

Getting a Grip on ‘Evil Dead II’

22 March 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Celebrating 30 years worth of fanaticism and community in the cult of Ashley ‘Ash’ Williams.

Thanks to our Star Trekian utopia of VOD insta-satisfaction (“Number One, slap The Greasy Strangler on the view screen!”), it’s becoming difficult to remember the ruthless savagery of that bygone VHS hunt. I spent far too many days roaming my hometown and neighboring cities chasing down lesser-known Kurosawas, the Critters sequels, and the seemingly always elusive pre-Mad Max apocalyptic mindfuck, A Boy and His Dog. Too often I had to settle for less, and rewatch Police Academy 4 instead of the highbrow hilarity of Zapped! cuz some other Scott Baio devotee had the local Power Video on stakeout. If your tastes in cinema aligned with the Blockbuster new release guarantee then you were golden, but us degenerates with a predilection for Roger Corman, and movies made before our births were doomed to the endless quest. Which, of »

Films that led to other films being cancelled

Had Tomorrowland been a hit, we might have had a Tron sequel. We look at movies whose fate had a knock-on effect on other films...

You've probably heard of chaos theory and a thing called the butterfly effect - a concept where the flapping of an insect's wings in a London borough causes a shed to collapse somewhere in the Australian outback.  In other words, seemingly incidental events can have a knock-on effect on everything else - like that old board game, Mousetrap, where a ball falling into a bath caused a boot to kick a bucket, which eventually led to the cruel detainment of several rodents.

The concept applies even in the high-stakes, high-energy world of filmmaking, where the success of one type of movie can prompt rival studios to greenlight their own, »

Performer of the Week: black-ish's Anthony Anderson

14 January 2017 7:37 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Anthony Anderson

The Show | black-ish

The Episode | “Lemons” (Jan. 11, 2017)

The Performance | Nine weeks after the election and little more than a week until the inauguration, the fact that Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States remains a tough truth for many Americans to absorb. Enter black-ish‘s Anderson, who in Wednesday’s episode of the ABC comedy gave a masterful performance as Dre struggled with both the election results and his friends and family’s reaction to them.

Anderson’s usually jovial portrayal of his character fell away as Dre explained to »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 9 Review: Broken Promises

10 January 2017 8:51 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Well, the return of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had pretty much everything you could want in a television program: killer robots, kickass action, epic betrayal, and a copious amount of Eighties movie references. It was so much fun, I made it halfway through the hour before realizing I missed Robbie Reyes. 

On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 9, Aida wasted no time in getting her evil plan into action. Said evil plan involved getting control of the Darkhold, the book of black magic that made Aida so powerful in the first place. 

Exactly how powerful? We're talking capable of rewriting her own programming powerful. Yeah. Imagine if your iPhone could do that. (To be fair, it feels like my phone is doing that to me every time I try to check my email on it.) Scary stuff. 

I didn't like feeling pain, so I fixed that.
