Is Bride Of Frankenstein Back On The Slab?

Thanks to The Avengers and the success that has followed it, the film industry as a whole is seemingly experiencing what we’ll term “Shared Universe Fever,” a condition that is rivaling the Disco Fever that plagued a nation in the 1970’s, and the Hulkamania that followed in the ’80s.

Truth be told, it actually kind of makes sense in Universal’s case, especially when the studio has a license to some of the most iconic monsters around. Really, they’ve been at this for so long that the lore they’ve established for werewolves, vampires and the like has actually overtaken folklore of centuries past, and is somehow now regarded as being canonical among the public at large.

Unfortunately, though, the studio really put the cart before the horse with this whole Dark Universe concept, hoping that their recent reboot of The Mummy would find the same success that

It Looks Like Universal's Bride Of Frankenstein is Going Back Into Development

After Tom Cruise's The Mummy bombed, Universal Pictures had to rethink their whole "Dark Universe" plan. The next film that was supposed to be developed in this Universal Monster cinematic universe was Bride of Frankenstein, but the last we heard, the studio shut down the production and removed it from their release schedule.

The reason for the project being shut down was so that director Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast) and the creative team could rework the script and get the project in a place that everyone is happy with. At the time, Universal said:

"After thoughtful consideration, Universal Pictures and director Bill Condon have decided to postpone Bride of Frankenstein. None of us want to move too quickly to meet a release date when we know this special movie needs more time to come together. Bill is a director whose enormous talent has been proven time and again,

Millie Bobby Brown Is Sherlock's Sister in Enola Holmes

Legendary Pictures has finalized a deal with Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown to both star in and produce a movie series based on the Enola Holmes Mysteries novel series, written by Nancy Springer, which follows the title character, the sister of Sherlock Holmes.

Critics Reveal Their Favorite Holiday TV Traditions — IndieWire Survey

Critics Reveal Their Favorite Holiday TV Traditions — 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: What are your winter holiday season viewing habits (that are not for work)? Do you have traditional go-to shows or movies? Are you looking forward to anything in particular?

Eric Deggans (@deggans), NPR

As I have written in the past, I’m not the kind of critic who loves holiday specials. Too often, they’re too hokey, too commercial, too weird (yes, Bill Murray, I still don’t get “A Very Murray Christmas”) or, in the case of countless Hallmark Channel movies, way too white. But I do have a few holiday media traditions, starting with my Spotify Holiday Tunes playlist, which gets fired up as

Watch a City Come Together and a Monster Created in These Videos From The Sinking City

I’ve been keeping a very close eye on Frogwares’ The Sinking City, which is a 3rd person horror adventure that takes place in a world that is as inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes as it is by H.P. Lovecraft and his eldritch terrors. While still early in development, the team is beginning […]

Cheer Up Your Loved Ones with Adorable Cthulhu Amigurumis

For those of you who don't know, Amigurumi is the “Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures”. Chances are you’ve seen adorable ones on Pinterest with your favorite Pokemon or Digimon or even animal. They tend to be freaking adorable. Kutuleras is an Etsy shop from Spain that makes a lot of awesome amigurumi with most of them involving Cthulhu. We have Cthulhu Totoro, Cthulhu Sherlock Holmes, even Cthulhu Deadpool (because why not?).

Hayes Brothers, Joel Silver Teaming on Horror Film (Exclusive)
The Hayes brothers, the sibling duo behind “The Conjuring,” are teaming up with producer Joel Silver on an original horror movie.

Details are being kept under wraps, but the film is being set at Sony, where Columbia Pictures executive vice president of creative production Palak Patel will oversee the development. The brothers, Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes, have a busy dance card.

In addition to “The Conjuring,” the Hayes brothers have written “The Crucifixion,” “The Reaping,” and “House of Wax.”

Anthony Harvey, Director Of "The Lion In Winter", Dead At 87

  • CinemaRetro
Cinema Retro's Todd Garbarini and Lee Pfeiffer with Anthony Harvey at a screening of The Lion in Winter at the Loew's Jersey City, 2009.

 

By Lee Pfeiffer

Anthony Harvey, the actor who became an editor only to finally become an esteemed director, has died at age 87 at his home in Long Island. Harvey was born in London and attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art with the hope of becoming an actor. However, he turned to film editing instead. On a whim he contacted Stanley Kubrick and convinced the director to hire him as editor on the 1962 production of "Lolita".  Kubrick was so impressed that he hired Harvey again to edit his next film "Dr. Strangelove". Harvey's innovative method of fast cutting won plaudits from the industry. At one point, however, disaster nearly struck when footage of a complicated sequence he had edited went missing, leading him to have to recreate

‘Doctor Radar #1′ Review (Statix Press)

Written by Noel Simsolo | Art by Bezian | Published by Statix Press/Titan Comics

Although my comic book tastes have always primarily been skewed to American comics, and especially Marvel and DC superhero titles, I am always happy to have a dabble outside of my comfort zone. I think it’s good on a personal level to expand your horizons, and it’s good to support a diverse as possible group of books on the shelves. Both those reasons, or either one of them, are good enough reason to pick up this book. Doctor Radar was originally published in France in 2014, and going on Titan Comics track record in selecting European comics to reprint, I have high hopes for it.

The first few pages give us a taste of what is to come. Set in 1920 France, the moody art and muted colours instantly give us a strong noir flavour. We start with a prologue of sorts,

Stellar Fan Art Imagines Jude Law As Mar-Vell In The Captain Marvel Movie

BossLogic is at it again.

With news that Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) is being courted for the Captain Marvel movie, BossLogic has produced a rather stellar piece that imagines The Young Pope actor as Doctor Walter Lawson (Aka Mar-Vell).

He is, in a nutshell, the mentor figure for Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), who is imbued with superhuman strength, energy projection, and flight soon after her DNA is infused with that of an extra-terrestrial. Now that’s what I call a close encounter.

As for BossLogic’s beautiful rendering, the prolific concept artist has gone for a more classic-inspired look while creating Jude Law’s Mar-Vell. In the comics, that character is often portrayed in military garb, or as a high-ranking Kree soldier, though without any official details to consult, it’s impossible to gauge the direction Marvel will eventually take. Still, if nothing else,

We Now Know Who Jude Law May Be Playing In Captain Marvel

Forget Dr. Watson and 221b Baker Street; former Sherlock Holmes star Jude Law is now in contention to play Doctor Walter Lawson (Aka Mar-Vell) opposite Brie Larson in the Captain Marvel movie.

News broke earlier this afternoon, when Variety revealed that Law had entered talks to join the 2019 spinoff. Should a deal place, he’ll play the film’s male lead alongside Larson and, presumably, Star Wars alum Ben Mendelsohn. That post has since been updated to include the most pertinent line of the lot: Jude Law’s character, Walter Lawson, will be the all-wise mentor for Carol Danvers as she begins to wrangle her superhuman powers under control.

Indeed, those familiar with Marvel Comics will know all too well that Doctor Walter Lawson originally held the title of Captain Marvel, though it’s unclear if that lore will be woven into the fabric of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s solo movie.

Jude Law Joins The McU Opposite Brie Larson In ‘Captain Marvel’

He’s played lotharios, vicious villains and movie heroes, but he’s never appeared in a Marvel movie, until now. Jude Law has joined the cast of Captain Marvel, the upcoming stand-alone Marvel Studios movie set to go into production next year for a 2019 release. The Jude Law Captain Marvel news comes from trade paper Variety.

Jude Law Captain Marvel News! He Will Play Doctor Walter Lawson In Forthcoming Movie

The character that Law will not be the villain of the piece as Ben Mendelsohn has already been signed up for that role. Instead, he will play Doctor Walter Lawson, a.k.a. Mar-Vell, who becomes a mentor of sorts to Brie Larson‘s Carol Danvers/ Captain Marvel as she tries to figure out her new powers.

The film will be set in the 1990s with Samuel L. Jackson expected to reprise his role as Nick Fury.

‘Captain Marvel’: Jude Law Lands Male Lead Opposite Brie Larson (Exclusive)

‘Captain Marvel’: Jude Law Lands Male Lead Opposite Brie Larson (Exclusive)
Jude Law is in negotiations to play the male lead opposite Brie Larson in Marvel’s “Captain Marvel,” sources tell Variety.

Ben Mendelsohn is on board to play the villain with “Half Nelson” helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck directing. Kevin Feige is producing.

Marvel had no comment.

Geneva Robertson-Dworet wrote the most recent script with “Inside Out” scribe Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman penning previous drafts, which follows Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight.

Law will be playing Doctor Walter Lawson, a.k.a. Mar-Vell, who becomes a mentor of sorts to Danvers as she tries to figure out her new powers.

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Feige announced that the superhero film will be set in the ’90s, before the Avengers ever thought of assembling, and [link=nm

TV Review – The Sinner

Liam Hoofe reviews The Sinner

American audiences will already be very acquainted with The Sinner. The show, adapted from the novel of the same name by Petra Hammesfahr, was a ratings success on the USA Network, and as a result has been streamed internationally by Netflix, with the full season hitting our shores last week. And, having binged watched the whole show in a little over 24 hours, it’s easy to see why.

The Sinner is not your conventional murder mystery. It strays away from the conventional whodunnit? narrative, instead, asking, why do it? The show had me hooked from the first episode, and chances are if you don’t engage with that opening 35 minutes, then there is no point in watching the rest.

The set up is simple, yet effective. Cora Tannetti is a married mother with one son. One day, at the beach, she is aggravated by a
