As yet, there’s no word who’ll be joining Isaac as family members Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester and Grandmama, along with butler Lurch.

The Addams Family will open in theaters on October 11th 2019, where it will go up against Are You Afraid of the Dark? and The Goldfinch.

Addams Family Reunion: the sequel that time forgot

Simon Brew Nov 15, 2017

After Addams Family Values struggled at the box office, another film still followed a few years later. But Addams Family 3 this was not...

Were the world right, then in 1993, Addams Family Values would have got both the rich acclaim and enormous box office it merited. A deliciously playful sequel, it’s 94 minutes of tightly put together comedy, with a bunch of performers that come close to defining ‘perfectly cast’. Christina Ricci, clinging to a fence as she’s threatened with the Harmony Hut, remains a comedy highlight of 1990s cinema.

But the film didn’t really hit. As much as it was liked, its box office was less than half of the original. It was released the week before Mrs Doubtfire in the Us, and it was the latter that become the widely seen family comedy of Christmas 1993. Addams Family Values would do okay at best, but

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017
November may mean the end of Halloween, but that doesn’t mean that the creepy fun has to end as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon continue to add some freaky films to November’s list of streaming content.

Netflix will start the month off with films like “Oculus” and “Silent Hill” for fans of big scares and “Casper” and “Scary Movie” for those who looking for a milder way to keep the Halloween spirit alive, and will also add in “9” and “Piranha” later in the month. For those who would rather leave the October spookiness behind, science fiction comedies like “Chappie” and “Men in Black” or family-friendly films like “Charlotte’s Web” and “The Boss Baby” should make for fun movie nights.

Hulu will also keep the frights coming with offerings like “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” and “Beowulf,” but will also get a headstart on the winter holiday season with “Christmas with the Cranks,” Happy Christmas,” and collection

Fan-Made Poster Imagines Addams Family Reboot With Oscar Isaac And Eva Green

A movie reboot of The Addams Family has long been in the works. For years, the plan was for Tim Burton – natch – to direct a stop-motion film featuring the ooky, kooky brood. However, once he vacated the project back in 2014, things stalled. Word has it, though, that it’s being reignited as a CGI flick from MGM. Conrad Vernon, the co-director of the R-rated Sausage Party, is set to helm, working off a script from Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride, Monster House).

While that’s all well and good, the internet still has its heart set on a live-action movie. Social media users have even collectively agreed on the perfect actors to resurrect Gomez and Morticia: Oscar Isaac and Eva Green. The idea has been doing the rounds online for a while, but now, Boss Logic has set his digital art skills into imagining what such a film would look like,

The Addams Family: animated reboot has Sausage Party director

Ryan Lambie Oct 13, 2017

The director of Sausage Party has reportedly boarded the animated reboot of The Addams Family...

They're creepy, they're kooky, and obviously, altogether ooky. But for over 20 years now, The Addams Family has remained firmly away from the silver screen - the last we saw of America's spookiest (fictional) family was 1993's sequel, Addams Family Values

Thanks to MGM, however, Morticia, Gomez and their unholy offspring will be making a triumphant return over the next couple of years - albeit in animated form. Word of the reboot has bubbled away for some time now, but it looks as though things are moving forward: The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the news that Conrad Vernon, best known as the director of Sausage Party, will be overseeing the project.

Newswire: Here’s what’s coming to (and going from) Hulu in September

August has been Friends Month at Hulu, with the streaming service getting a big collection of movies and TV shows that are all about people who have friends or whatever, so it’s appropriate that September will be Family Month—a month dedicated to movies and TV shows about people who either have families or don’t have families because their parents were gunned down in an alley. In September, Hulu subscribers will be able to catch such family-centric content as The Addams Family, Addams Family Values, season 13 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Batman, Batman Returns, Carrie, My Girl, Robocop, And You Thought Your Parents Were Weird, Silent Hill, Freaky Friday (1977), Freaky Friday (2003), and Lilo & Stitch—though that one’s technically about ‘ohana, which means family.

Subscribers will also be able to watch a bunch of classic Tgif sitcoms, most of which revolve around families ...

Forrest Gump, and the big battles behind a monster hit

Simon Brew May 15, 2017

Forrest Gump was a huge hit - but it's worth remembering just what a massive, massive gamble it was. Here's just a slice of that story...

Few major Hollywood blockbusters of the 1990s can lay claim to being some kind of cultural phenomenon, but surely Forrest Gump can. Love or loathe the film, its dialogue has slipped into everyday language, it’s inspired a spin-off bunch of restaurants, and it’s one of the top grossing films of the decade. Oh, and it won a bunch of Oscars, including a second consecutive Best Actor win for Tom Hanks.

It’s often said that the most successful films, though, have tumultuous behind the scene stories. I remember when Richard Donner directed Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas in Assassins (based on a heavily butchered script by the pre-Matrix Wachowskis), and it was widely reported that the shoot was a calm and very pleasurable one.

Celebrating the movies of Keanu Reeves

Kirsten Howard Feb 17, 2017

Keanu Reeves, as much as any actor of his generation, has left a legacy to be proud of. We take a look back at his career.

Much like his character in the John Wick films, Keanu Reeves is a man with very little to lose.

Often maligned for his lack of range as an actor, or dismissed as merely a vaguely goofy action star, every misstep that Reeves has taken throughout his career has come from an enviable ability to consistently take risks. Despite every effort to pigeonhole him, Keanu Reeves just won’t be told what he can and can’t do.

Gird Your Loins for a "Devil Wears Prada" Musical

Chris here, with exciting Broadway adaptation news. Yes, we've maybe begun to move past eyerolling whenever our favorite movies are cashgrabbed into a stage musical and are occassionally excited about some prospects. The Devil Wears Prada seems like a more natural fit for Broadway (and long rumored). It also just landed some quite credible talent: composer Elton John and scribe Paul Rudnick.

If you're worried about an instant classic like Prada being bastardized, look no further than how Elton John turned Billy Elliot into both a financial and creative success on the stage. Paul Rudnick has given us such gay classics as Jeffrey, Addams Family Values, and In & Out, so don't expect the hilarity to be diminished either. While there is not an arrival date yet, the announcement of their involvement is all we need to confirm that this adaptation is really happening and will be a gay old time.

‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Musical Targets Broadway With Elton John, Paul Rudnick

‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Musical Targets Broadway With Elton John, Paul Rudnick
Fox Stage Productions’ brewing musical adaptation of “The Devil Wears Prada” has locked down two key members of its creative team, signing Elton John and Paul Rudnick to write the stage version of the 2006 Fox comedy.

Grammy winner John already has the ongoing smash musical “The Lion King” under his belt, as well as Tony-winner “Billy Elliot” and Disney’s “Aida.” Rudnick, a regular contributor to The New Yorker, has written plays including “Jeffrey” and “I Hate Hamlet,” with screenplays “Addams Family Values” and “In & Out” also on his CV.

The “Devil Wears Prada” musical, which has been percolating for a few years now, comes from a producing team led by Kevin McCollum, Fox Stage Productions and Rocket Entertainment, the production company whose CEO is John’s husband, David Furnish. In 2013, Fox tapped Broadway veteran McCollum (“Rent,

The Furniture: Wednesday Addams Sets Thanksgiving on Fire

"The Furniture" our weekly series on Production Design. Here's Daniel Walber

Happy Thanksgiving! In three days, Americans will gather together to cook, feast and argue. The acrimonious presidential election has launched a multitude of think pieces on the subject. How do you talk to your relatives who voted differently than you? The classic stereotype of the young, liberal, usually-white urbanite going back to conservative “middle america” for turkey is certainly more fraught this year than it’s ever been. Does that scenario now come with the moral obligation to speak up?

This may seem like a weird way to begin a column about Addams Family Values, a comedy sequel without an overt political message. But there's some Thanksgiving advice to be found in the Oscar-nominated design of legendary production designer Ken Adam (The Spy Who Loved Me) and set decorator Marvin March (Annie). Beyond the social satire of the early 1990s ("But Debbie.
