A mysterious "original sin" plagues the Stephen King multiverse in the latest trailer for Castle Rock. The author's upcoming Hulu anthology series with J.J. Abrams is set in the fictional Maine town from many of King's stories.

"Everyone's got a theory about how it started, about Castle Rock's original sin," narrates Terry O'Quinn's Dale Lacy. "Was it the Puritans who settled here? Or was it the mills, where we grew rich by scraping God's Earth until it bled? Was that when he turned his back on this town?

Steven Soderbergh Shooting Panama Papers Movie Next, Title Revealed & Much More

Exclusive: What’s going on in the world of filmmaker Steven Soderbergh these days? As usual, a little bit of everything.

‘American Horror Story’: Which was the scariest season of ‘Ahs’? [Poll]
We just got word that season 8 of “American Horror Story” is in production and should debut on FX this fall. All we know about this eighth edition of this franchise is that it is set in the future and will star Oscar winner Kathy Bates, Emmy winner Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters. The latter two have been with the show since it kicked off in 2011 while Bates appeared in seasons three through six.

Other commitments kept Bates from appearing in season seven, “American Horror Story: Cult,” which aired last fall and focused on the 2016 election. That is the one that TV academy voters will be considering this summer. The first six seasons of “Ahs” reaped 81 Emmy nominations and 15 wins, including one for Bates (“Coven”).

While awards are nice, the real measure of success for the series is the number of goosebumps it raised. After reading our recaps of the seven

Ava DuVernay tackles tentpole filmmaking with “A Wrinkle in Time”

It’s positively refreshing to see a director get a chance to work their way up to a blockbuster. Too often these days, one indie hit gets a hotshot filmmaker (let’s face it, always a white dude) the next franchise to helm. It’s rare that this sort of work is a reward for someone who has earned the chance to take their talents to a new level. Even rarer is when it’s someone who’s not the aforementioned white dude. For Ava DuVernay, a string of important critical and cultural success stories has allowed her to become the first woman of color to receive a budget of $100 million for her work. Teaming with Disney to tackle a once thought to be unfilmable novel, she’s brining A Wrinkle in Time to screens. Opening this week, it’s another example of the early section of the year no longer being a dumping ground.

‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Review: Ava DuVernay’s Eye-Popping Spectacle Proves that a Little Imagination Can Go a Long Way

At a time when Disney would rather fund suffocatingly faithful (and/or toxically garish) “live-action” remakes of classic films than roll the dice on original stories for a new generation of kids, there’s something refreshing — and downright beautiful — about what Ava DuVernay has done with “A Wrinkle in Time.” Less satisfying than the recent “Pete’s Dragon,” but told with a similar degree of revisionist zeal, this eye-popping adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved 1962 novel scrubs away the Christian overtones of the source material in favor of some distinctly 21st century humanism.

Jesus is out, self-worth is in, and it’s coming for your children via an $103-million orgy of special effects that starts with a giant astral projection of Oprah and only gets more insane from there. At one point, Reese Witherspoon transforms into a giant piece of flying kale. It almost doesn’t matter that the

Bill Skarsgard Has a New Stephen King Project Coming, and It Looks Absolutely Chilling

If American Horror Story and Lost had a baby, and then that baby had another baby with Stephen King, it would probably look something like Hulu's upcoming TV series Castle Rock. The drama is from executive producer J.J. Abrams and the twisted mind of King, who's been using the fictional town of Castle Rock as a setting for a number of his novels over the years (The Dead Zone, Doctor Sleep, Revival). Although many specifics about the show are still under wraps, we do have a few ideas about where it's headed and who we'll see on screen. Judging from the new trailer, above, the series will intertwine characters and themes from King's body of work.
