October TV Premieres: 18 New Series to Look Out for This Month

October TV Premieres: 18 New Series to Look Out for This Month
Some months just have a clearer TV directive. In just a few short weeks, screens will be filled with snow and warm lighting and cocoa mugs. March/April are the months of Prestige TV Onslaught. July, as we all know, is Literary Adaptation Month.

So as the leaves begin to turn and fall really kicks into high gear, it’s not exactly kismet that brings so many spooky/horror-adjacent titles to the world of TV. That’s what October has long been made into, complete with all the eyeballs searching for scares that come along with it. Whether unsettling or kitschy or ironic, a good chunk of the new shows arriving over the coming weeks are designed to thrill and chill.

There’s still a smattering of network premieres to help round out the fall schedule, and some series that you might not necessarily peg for this corner of the calendar.

David Bowie’s Zaniest & Most Underrated Film Role Is The Linguini Incident
David Bowie’s filmography is one filled top to bottom with hits. Whether it’s the critically-acclaimed The Man Who Fell to Earth, a brief appearance in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, or his performance in Labyrinth that would make the film a cult classic, the Starman’s film career is one that would last nearly as long as his musical one, culminating in over thirty roles across film and television that many remember with great fondness.

Why Crispin Glover Did Not Return in the Back to the Future Sequels

Why Crispin Glover Did Not Return in the Back to the Future Sequels
The Back to the Future trilogy is a true pop culture phenomenon. Over the three movies, the iconic characters of Doctor Emmett “Doc” Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) travel across time after the eccentric Doc creates a time machine built from a DeLorean. As well as Doc and Marty, the series gave us other memorable characters who were first introduced in the original 1985 movie including the dim-witted bully Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson), and Marty’s outlandish parents Lorraine (Lea Thompson) and George (Crispin Glover). After the unimaginable success of the first film, Part II and Part III were filmed back-to-back in 1989 and 1990 respectively.

Will Byers Needs to be Essential in Stranger Things Season 5

Will Byers Needs to be Essential in Stranger Things Season 5
With Season 4 airing earlier this summer, and the highly anticipated fifth and final season in development, Stranger Things is at an all-time high after a long break. In the upcoming Season 5, the character of Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) and his role has been brought up by both fans and the Duffer Brothers themselves. Looking ahead, it's clear that Will should be the show's central character next season, and it makes sense to have him returning to the forefront at the end.

Every year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awards its coveted Oscar to bestow the highest honors in filmmaking.

Busan Film Market: Acemaker Serves up Slate of Action and Revenge Titles

Busan Film Market: Acemaker Serves up Slate of Action and Revenge Titles
Multifaceted Korean film company Acemaker Movieworks will unveil four titles at this year’s Asian Contents & Film Market, which operates alongside the Busan International Film Festival. Action and revenge feature prominently as unifying themes.

The Covid pandemic continues to have a delayed impact on the Korean production and film releasing scenes. Last year’s prolonged theatrical drought meant funds for reinvestment were in short supply and releases postponed. Many of Acemaker’s movies were shot in 2020, but are only now confirming completion and new release dates.

“Remember” is an action drama film starring Lee Sung Min (“The Spy Gone North”) and Nam Joo Hyuk (best known for TV series “Start-Up” and “Twenty-Five Twenty-One”). Directed by Lee Il Hyung (“A Violent Prosecutor”), the story revolves around a retired soldier suffering from dementia, seeking revenge from people he believes caused the death of his family. The film is a remake of Atom Egoyan

Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile Cast and Character Guide

Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile Cast and Character Guide
When you hear Shawn Mendes voicing an anthropomorphic crocodile, it sounds adorable, cute, and fun, but not surprising. But when you hear Javier Bardem playing the character of a showman and the owner of the said crocodile, it is certain to leave you in awe. From grungy and serious characters to a comedic role, it’s definitely a complete turnaround for the No Country for Old Men star. But that’s one of the most exciting things about Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile. The film features a very interesting cast, (which we’ll get to soon enough) and is a much-awaited family movie of fall 2022.

Andor Breaks Away From Star Wars’ Skywalker Emphasis, and That’s a Good Thing

Andor Breaks Away From Star Wars’ Skywalker Emphasis, and That’s a Good Thing
Editor's note: The below contains spoilers for Episode 1-4 of Andor.Disney+'s Andor is just four episodes in, and it has already distinguished itself within the Star Wars universe. The show is not afraid to include adult themes, conflicts, and action sequences. Episode 3 even debuted Star Wars' first use of an Earthly swear word. Perhaps one of the most notable ways that Andor has set itself apart so far is in its use of mostly original characters. Other than the titular Cassian Andor from Rogue One, the introduction of Mon Mothma, and a brief mention of Saw Gerrera, the cast is made up of fresh faces. Even among the familiar figures, though, none of them are necessarily major characters in the grand scheme of Star Wars—none of them are Jedi, none of them are Sith, and none of them have the last name Skywalker.

The Two Horror Movies You Need To Watch After Smile

The Two Horror Movies You Need To Watch After Smile
Major spoilers for "Smile" follow.

"Smile" is an unsettling new horror film from writer and director Parker FinnSosie Bacon stars as Dr. Rose Cotter, a dedicated emergency room psychologist who meets a graduate student unnerved by the violent suicide of her professor and tormented by a strange entity.

Finn's film feels very familiar, clearly drawing inspiration from a host of

James Bond Producer Says Next 007 Won’t Be Young Actor: ‘Bond’s Already a Veteran’

James Bond Producer Says Next 007 Won’t Be Young Actor: ‘Bond’s Already a Veteran’
The next 007 will decidedly be a “veteran” of the spy game, according to longtime James Bond producer Michael G. Wilson.

During an “In Conversation” event at the British Film Institute to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the character, Wilson revealed that any younger actors who have been rumored to be in the mix to take over the role, like Jacob Elordi and Tom Holland, are not in the running to play the famed MI6 agent.

“We’ve tried looking at younger people in the past,” Wilson said, via Deadline. “But trying to visualize it doesn’t work. Remember, Bond’s already a veteran. He’s had some experience. He’s a person who has been through the wars, so to speak. He’s probably been in the Sas or something. He isn’t some kid out of high school that you can bring in and start off. That’s

Deadstream Review: Found Footage Horror Pushes Boundaries with Frights, Fun

Deadstream Review: Found Footage Horror Pushes Boundaries with Frights, Fun
The found-footage subgenre has always had a special place in horror, primarily due to the fact we tend to be more afraid of things that look like they could be real. That’s also why so many horror movies stretch the meaning of “based on true events” to convince the audience that the stakes are genuine in their bland supernatural flick. In the case of found footage, the subgenre also has the advantage of being ridiculously cheap compared to horror in general. And horror is already cheap compared to other genres. So, it’s no wonder the market is flooded with found-footage horror, and even less a surprise that most of these movies fail to scare or entertain. But that’s what makes watching Deadstream such a delightful surprise. Deadstream is more than great found footage; it’s one of the best horror movies of the year, period.

Big Mouth Season 6 Trailer: New Babies, New Loves, Same Embarrassing Middle Schoolers

Big Mouth Season 6 Trailer: New Babies, New Loves, Same Embarrassing Middle Schoolers
"Big Mouth" is one of the only shows on TV that understands how truly weird it is to come of age. Over the past five seasons, the series has seen the teens of Bridgeton Middle School grow from shame-faced seventh graders to slightly more confident — if just as cringe-inducing — eighth graders. It's hard to believe these horny, awkward, hilarious kids still have so much more growing up to do, but then again, the well of offbeat and frank humor for this animated comedy never really runs dry.

Check out the trailer for the new season, which looks like it'll include some plot crossover from the spin-off "Human Resources," below.

Though I'll admit I'm only a sporadic "Big Mouth" enjoyer (it can get so very gross), the upcoming season looks like an entertaining and emotionally resonant continuation of a show that always takes its teens' character development seriously,

Why Has Remaking Scarface Been Impossible?

Why Has Remaking Scarface Been Impossible?
Doing a remake of Scarface would, on paper, seem like blasphemy. This Brian De Palma movie starring Al Pacino was incredibly influential and has never wavered off the pop culture radar in the many years since its release. Of course, that perception likely comes from those unaware that the 1983 Scarface is itself a remake of a 1932 feature of the same name (both are based on the 1929 novel Scarface). Though it may be the most well-known one to modern moviegoers, the Pacino Scarface is already retreading familiar ground. Given that it’s already been remade once before, it may then seem natural rather than heinous to do yet another update on this material. But trying to get a 21st-century Scarface remake has proven enormously challenging, to the point that nobody should be expecting to say hello to this movie or any of its little friends anytime soon.

Cool Stuff: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Action Figure Provides Best Look Yet At Ironheart's Armor

Cool Stuff: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Action Figure Provides Best Look Yet At Ironheart's Armor
Before she stars in her own Disney+ series, Dominique Thorne's Riri Williams will be introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever." Previously, we've gotten glimpses at this new character in the first trailer for the follow-up to Ryan Coogler's acclaimed 2018 film and the recently released Funko Pop sporting her Mark I armor. However, True Believers were able to see Williams' upgraded suit in action in the latest trailer for the upcoming movie, which seems like an amalgamation of the first and third iterations of her armor from the comics. The Hasbro Marvel Legends action figure just dropped, as well, and it offers the best look at the live-action version of Ironheart yet.

Shortly after the second preview for the sequel was released, online retailers such as Amazon and Entertainment Earth began to tout that the toy was in stock and available for purchase immediately.

'Fight Club' and 4 Other Great Movies That Were Misinterpreted by Fans

'Fight Club' and 4 Other Great Movies That Were Misinterpreted by Fans
To what extent should a piece of work be held responsible for its fans? All forms of entertainment have, in some way, influenced their audiences in ways that are far beyond the original creator's vision or message, ranging from classical works of literature to music, plays, films, and more. Famous examples include Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and the ancient Greek tragedy of Oedipus Rex, each sporting a controversial legacy due to misunderstandings surrounding the original work.

Werewolf By Night's Cigarette Burns Are A Love Letter To 1930s Horror

Werewolf By Night's Cigarette Burns Are A Love Letter To 1930s Horror
In a week where horror folks will be overloaded by the return of Pinhead ("Hellraiser"), Art the Clown ("Terrifier 2"), and Chucky ("Chucky" season 2), the people at Marvel Studios have decided to endow upon us a television special that harkens back to the days of early sound monster movies with "Werewolf by Night." Composer Michael Giacchino, otherwise known as the man behind the scores for "The Incredibles" and "The Batman," has taken it upon himself to adapt the '70s Marvel comic into a love letter to the Universal Monsters for his directorial debut.

As the first of Marvel's "Special Presentation" department, "Werewolf by Night" presents an incredible opportunity for creatives to tinker around with characters and ideas that may not have enough leg room for an entire series or feature film, but fits just nicely into this looser mold. If Giacchino is going to take a crack at taking us
