New Gremlins Movie Is Definitely A Reboot, Says Chris Columbus

Seeing as we live in a time where nostalgia-driven remakes and belated sequels are all the rage, a new Gremlins movie has been in the works for a while. The 1984 original horror/comedy has been a favorite alternate Christmas film for decades, but despite its success, Joe Dante’s anarchic masterpiece never really spawned a franchise, except for the mostly forgotten 1990 sequel, Gremlins: The New Batch.

Original screenwriter Chris Columbus is trying to put that right, though. For the past few years, he’s been working on a script for Gremlins 3. The last time we got an update on its development was back in 2017, with the famed director of the likes of Home Alone, Harry Potter and more confirming that he was aiming to capture the sensibility of the first film and promising that it would be “twisted and dark.”

While chatting with Metro Us, however, Columbus has now given

‘ReBoot: The Guardian Code’ Review: Netflix’s New Series Is in Need of a Software Patch

The original, 1994, all-computer-generated animated series ReBoot is a cult-classic cartoon. It took advantage of cutting-edge CG tech to bring to life the denizens of a computer system by the name of Mainframe. Led by the Guardian program Bob, the team of Dot Matrix and her younger brother Enzo and various other characters defended Mainframe from both the nullifying effects caused by losing to the User in a game as well as damage caused by computer viruses like Megabyte and Hexadecimal. It was a self-contained series that never ventured into the real world outside of …

Original ‘ReBoot’ Series to Stream in Its Entirety as Twitch Marathon

24 years ago--oh User, I'm old...--Saturday-morning cartoon fans everywhere were introduced to the first, fully CG-animated series: ReBoot.

Trailer For Netflix's Reboot of the 90s Series Reboot

Do you remember the 90s series ReBoot? It was a Canadian CGI-animated action-adventure series. I vaguely remember this show, but Netflix is rebooting it and calling it ReBoot: The Guardian Code. They even released a trailer that you can watch below and it looks pretty silly. It kind of has a Power Rangers type vibe to it and it definitely looks like something that would come from the 90s. This version of the show is a live-action and CGI hybrid. Even the CGI looks like it comes out of the 90s! This is the description that came with the trailer:

The show is a cool mix of live action and awesome animation about the adventures of four teenagers who become the Next-Generation Guardians of Cyberspace with the help of an artificially intelligent bio-constructed teenage girl.

If you're familiar with the original series, then you know that they've changed some things up.

Raise your hand if you’re a ’90s kid and you remember ReBoot. I sadly don’t, though I do remember its more kid-friendly PBS equivalent, Cyberchase. It seems like Reboot: The Guardian Code, the Netflix, uh, reboot of the series, is banking on a combination of nostalgia for the original show and the near-universal familiarity with Power Rangers. The original ReBoot was an […]

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson Decode Mulder and Scully's Relationship in New 'X-Files' Teaser

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson Decode Mulder and Scully's Relationship in New 'X-Files' Teaser
What are Mulder and Scully? Not even David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson really know.

The X-Files co-stars attempt to decode their characters' relationship in a new promo for the series' upcoming 11th season.

"We're co-workers, friendly co-workers," Anderson insists, while Duchovny notes, “In the second movie we were married, we appeared to be married. And then when the last season began, we appeared to be estranged."

"Everything's up in the air in the world of The X-Files, so you don't really know," the actor reasons.

One thing's for sure, however, the new season will show a "closer" Mulder and Scully, as Anderson suggests. A scene in the promo shows Mulder tempting his partner with something "like a date."

“I’d say we’re kind of back to where we were originally, but without the sexual tension,” Anderson shares. “Because we’ve already had sex."

The X-Files returns Jan. 3, 2018, at 8 p.m. Et/Pt on Fox

‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ Will Feature a Harvey Weinstein-Like Figure Who Preys on Flight Attendants

‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ Will Feature a Harvey Weinstein-Like Figure Who Preys on Flight Attendants
Many social media users have cited the 19-season run of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” as a reminder that sex crimes have long pre-dated Harvey Weinstein. To the surprise of no one, the disgraced former studio head — whose dozens of accusers recently inspired countless others to speak out against powerful men they’ve encountered in the workplace — will inspire a 2018 episode of the Dick Wolf-created NBC procedural.

The show’s executive producer, Michael Chernuchin, told Entertainment Weekly that “we are hitting Harvey Weinstein head-on” with a fictionalized account of predators who work in the airline industry.

While readying a previously-planned script about “airline pilots and what a boys club that is,” Chernuchin said he and his writers realized, “‘Wow, this is exactly what the actresses go through in Hollywood. It’s the same environment.’ So we got all of our Harvey stuff out with airline pilots.”

American Gods 'The Secret of Spoon' Recap

If you were wondering if American Gods would cross the same controversial territory as the novel, the opening minutes of this episode resolves your curiosity. It not only crosses the land of its source material, but it also takes present day twists on the subject material.

As the novel, this episode opens to a slave ship coming to America in 1697. One of the slaves is praying to Anansi, asking to be freed from where he is. In comes Mr. Nancy, played by a very well dressed Orlando Jones. In this one scene, where he describes what the future holds for the black race, Jones puts on the performance of his career.

Joe Manganiello Is Deathstroke in Ben Affleck's Batman Movie

Joe Manganiello Is Deathstroke in Ben Affleck's Batman Movie
A few weeks after Ben Affleck made headlines with his mysterious Deathstroke video, it has been confirmed that this character will be the main villain of the actor/director's Batman reboot, with Joe Manganiello set to star. DC Entertainment CEO Geoff Johns, who is co-writing the script with director/star Ben Affleck, confirmed the news in an interview to discuss his new role as head of DC Films. However, he wouldn't confirm if Deathstroke will have a cameo in Justice League, which is currently filming in London.

Shortly after the video was posted of Deathstroke, which appeared to be taken from the Justice League set, a report claimed that this iconic character will serve as the main villain in this Batman reboot. Joe Manganiello had been rumored to play Deathstroke back in March 2015, as part of the Suicide Squad cast, but that character wasn't even included in the movie, when it hit theaters this August.

Deathstroke Is the Main Villain in Ben Affleck's Batman Movie

Deathstroke Is the Main Villain in Ben Affleck's Batman Movie
Just hours ago, Justice League star Ben Affleck posted a new video from the set, which gave us our first look at Deathstroke. Sadly, we still do not know who is playing this iconic villain in Justice League, but whoever is underneath that iconic mask will be sticking around in the Dceu for at least one more movie. A new report has surfaced that Deathstroke will in fact be the main villain in director/star/writer Ben Affleck's upcoming Batman Reboot.

The report comes from The Wrap, which reveals Deathstroke's presence in the Batman Reboot, but doesn't reveal who will be playing this villain. It's possible that Deathstroke is being played by Colin Farrell, who we reported last month is in talks for a mystery role in Justice League. It isn't known how large or small Deathstroke's role is in this movie, but it's possible he'll merely be introduced

DC Entertainment to Publish Comics Based on Popular Hanna-Barbera Characters

Pajamas and a big bowl of sugary cereal is how many of us remember watching our favorite Saturday morning cartoons as kids. Beginning in May, DC Entertainment plans to give old fans and new the chance to relive (and extend) their childhoods with a new, modern lineup of comics based on some of Hanna-Barbera’s most popular cartoon characters, but reimagined in a fresh and contemporary fashion.

The initial lineup includes:

Scooby Apocalypse – Featuring character designs by veteran artist Jim Lee and an origin story by Jim Lee and Keith Giffen (Justice League 3001), artist Howard Porter (Superman) will provide his own unique take on Freddie, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo. “Those meddling kids” and their Mystery Machine are at the center of a well-meaning experiment gone wrong and they’ll need to bring all of their mystery solving skills to bear (along with plenty of Scooby Snacks), to find a
