Ryan Reynolds’ Clue Reboot May Be Rated R

One of my favorite comedies out there is the 1985 murder-mystery Clue starring Tim Curry. The movie is (obviously) based on the famous board game and co-stars the likes of Christopher Lloyd, Madeline Kahn, and Michael McKean. And if you love the movie as much as I do then you might be excited to know […]

Exclusive Interview – Composer Jim Lang talks about his score for the latest Hey Arnold! feature and creating that memorable jazz theme

When viewers first tuned in to Hey Arnold! in October 1996 they probably thought that it was going to be another silly kids show to pass the time, but as the episodes went on it started to stand out as something more than that. Hey Arnold! began confronting real issues that children have to deal with and showed them that life isn’t always perfect and that’s ok. Over 20 years later the topics and lessons are still very much relevant, hence why new installments continue to be released, the latest being the feature Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie. One of aspects of the Hey Arnold! world that continues to garner recognition is the score by composer Jim Lang, whom many critics say was children in the 90’s first introduction to jazz. We decided to speak with Lang about his ground breaking score and what it was like to recently revisit these beloved characters,

Cinematographer Revealed for the It Sequel

They defeated It when they were kids, but the Losers' Club will have to face the ancient entity again as adults in It: Chapter Two, and following recent potential casting reveals for the sequel, a new cinematographer is reportedly on board for the anticipated film.

Collider reports that Checco Varese will be the cinematographer for It: Chapter Two. Chung-hoon Chung served as the director of photography on the first It film, but as Collider points out, director Andy Muschietti could be looking for a different visual style in the sequel, which will take place around 27 years after the 1989-set first film, with the Losers' Club inevitably returning to their hometown of Derry to face the return of It, aka Pennywise. This change in visual style is also reflected with The Shape of Water production designer Paul Austerberry coming on board for the It sequel (Claude Paré was the production designer

Trailer For New It Documentary Takes Us Inside The TV Miniseries

Awesome as 2017’s It was, I must confess that I’m still trying to wrap my head around all the cash the major motion picture raked in. Really, the impressive numbers that it posted were pretty much unheard of for a horror flick, and are normally reserved for summer blockbusters, superhero movies and family favorites featuring CGI cartoon characters.

That said, there were likely a variety of factors instrumental in the big screen adaptation’s success such as positive word of mouth, good marketing, nostalgia for Stephen King’s novel and/or the 1990 television miniseries, and perhaps a few people people who wanted to conquer their coulrophobia (fear of clowns).

Speaking of which, the classic TV production will serve as the focus for today’s conversation, as it remains one of the more notorious of King’s works to find its way to the small screen, along with The Tommyknockers and The Shining (yep,

Story of It Trailer Promises to Expose the Truth Behind Pennywise

Story of It Trailer Promises to Expose the Truth Behind Pennywise
Stephen King's It has been a beloved horror novel from the very beginning. However, it was the 1990 adaptation that made Pennywise the clown a horror icon. Now, a new documentary will take a deep-dive look at the 1990 adaptation, which was done as a two-part miniseries that more or less serves as two short movies or one long movie. The second trailer for Pennywise: The Story of It promises an awful lot for hardcore horror and Stephen King fans.

The trailer was released by Dead Mouse Productions and, though it isn't what one would call flashy, as it mostly just revolves around cheap animations and text on a screen, what the trailer spells out does sound of interest to many. This new It documentary will include tons of interviews with the cast and crew, new photos from the making of the miniseries, as well as exclusive behind the scenes footage.

Stephen King’S It Miniseries Deluxe Vinyl Score Coming April 10th from Waxwork Records

At times bouncy, peppy, and deceptively jovial, Richard Bellis' score for 1990's Stephen King's It miniseries is also abruptly haunting and nightmarish, creating a creepy carnival-esque atmosphere that is the perfect accompaniment to Tim Curry's iconic performance as Pennywise. Waxwork Records will soon release the score like never before on a deluxe triple LP vinyl package, and to help you float until its April 10th release, they revealed a look at the cover art and details on some of the Derry-based goodies collectors can look forward to:

It Director Teases the Start of Filming on Chapter 2

Get ready to float again, as it looks like Andy Muschietti is just about ready to start production on It: Chapter Two.

Scaring the pants off its audiences and winning over the box office in 2017, Muschietti successfully adapted Stephen King’s 1986’s novel and rebooted the story after the 1990 TV adaptation. Bill Skarsgård took over from Tim Curry in the role of Pennywise the Dancing Clown, proving that horror remakes and re-adaptations aren’t all necessary bad ideas.

The Shadow

Even Jerry Goldsmith’s score and an oddball supporting cast – including Tim Curry and Jonathan Winters – couldn’t hypnotize moviegoers into making Martin Bregman’s 1994 thriller a hit. Alec Baldwin stars as The Shadow, a crime-fighting master of mind-control inspired by 30’s pulp fiction and a popular radio show. The film opened to both indifferent critics and wary audiences, possibly uncomfortable with the ambivalent nature of a not-quite-super superhero.

Mark Hamill Reveals The Inspirations Behind His Portrayal Of The Joker

General audiences know him best as the heroic Luke Skywalker from the Star Wars saga, but DC fans idolize Mark Hamill for his turn to the Dark Side. The actor has played Batman’s nemesis the Joker across numerous media for over 25 years now, beginning with the acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series in 1992. To many, his vocal performance perfectly captures all aspects of the supervillain: his charm and humour, yet also his monstrous, murderous side.

In an interview with Sway’s Universe, Hamill talked about where exactly his portrayal of the Joker comes from. The star revealed that, back when he started doing B:tas, he was influenced by a strange mix of inspirations, including classic black-and-white horror The Invisible Man and TV personalities like Howard Cosell and Jay Leno.

“I would imitate the old Universal horror films and I realize, in retrospect, I wasn’t doing it consciously, but Claude Rains as The Invisible Man
