Mel Gibson and Charlie Hunnam are Set to Star in The New Action-Thriller Waldo

Mel Gibson, Charlie Hunnam and Eiza González are set to star in a new action-thriller called Waldo. No, it’s not a film adaptation of Where’s Waldo, but that would certainly be an interesting movie, especially with this cast!

Waldo center on “a disgraced former Lapd detective, played by Hunnam, living the life of a minimalist in the woods. His quiet life comes to a startling halt when he is roped back into working as a private eye to investigate the murder of an eccentric television star’s wife.”

There’s no information on who Gibson will be playing in the film. The movie will be directed by Tim Kirkby and it will start shooting early next year.

Gibson can next be seen in the film Dragged Across Concrete with Vince Vaughn. Hunnam is best known for his roles in Sons of Anarchy, Pacific Rim, and Crimson Peak. González

Guillermo del Toro Directing ‘Pinocchio’ for Netflix

Guillermo del Toro Directing ‘Pinocchio’ for Netflix
Fresh off his Oscar win for “The Shape of Water,” Guillermo del Toro is set to make his animated feature film directing debut. Del Toro has received the green light from Netflix to film “Pinocchio,” a stop motion musical version of the classic children’s tale about a puppet who wants to be a real live boy. He will write and produce the film in addition to directing it.

The film will be set in Italy during the 1930s, a particularly fraught historical moment and a time when fascism was on the rise and Benito Mussolini was consolidating control of the country. Production on “Pinocchio” will begin this fall. Del Toro previously set “The Devil’s Backbone” and “Pan’s Labyrinth” against a totalitarian backdrop, although he placed those stories in Franco’s Spain.

Inside The Incredible Mind Of Guillermo del Toro

Guillermo del Toro is on a roll – his most recent film, The Shape of Water, was a critical and commercial smash hit, he’s currently working on a ‘darker version’ of the Pinocchio story, and has three TV series in the pipeline. It seems del Toro’s fantastically entertaining imagination knows no bounds. To celebrate the release of his TV series The Strain – Seasons 1-4 available on DVD 22nd October – here’s a celebration of the Oscar-winning director’s most visually arresting, genre-defying creations.

1. Hellboy

The Mexican director took Mike Mignola’s cult comic book character, about a demon conjured by the Nazis during the war, who switches sides and becomes a good guy, and turned him into an iconic screen hero – a cigar-chomping Ron Perlman, unrecognisable in extraordinary make-up.

2. Pan’s Labyrinth

Del Toro started out doing special effects make-up. He showed off his love of the craft in

Guillermo del Toro movies: All 10 films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Shape of Water,’ ‘Pan’s Labyrinth,’ ‘Crimson Peak’
Guillermo del Toro celebrates his 54th birthday on October 9, 2018. The Mexican-born auteur hit the Oscar jackpot earlier this year with his fantastical love story “The Shape of Water” (2017), which took home four prizes including Best Picture and Best Director. But that’s just one of many eye-popping fantasies he has crafted throughout his career. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at all 10 of del Toro’s films, ranked worst to best.

Del Toro made his feature directing debut with the Spanish-language horror drama “Cronos” (1993), which established him as a maker of dark, visually-stunning fright-fests. The film wrote him a ticket to Hollywood, where he helmed the creepy chiller “Mimic” (1997). Over the next two decades, he would bounce back-and-forth between mainstream American productions and more personal stories in his native language.

Best Movies and TV to Stream in Oct: ‘Making a Murderer 2,’ ‘Romanoffs,’ ‘Sabrina’

This month, Hulu looses an unnatural force on a gaggle of teenage girls and partners with Blumhouse for a yearlong calendar of holidays from hell. Meanwhile, over at Netflix, they’re pulling out all the stops: sadistic island cults, witches, demons, Irl terrorists and murderers. And Amazon, to their credit, goes against the grain with a pair of handsomely mounted, finely pedigreed miniseries. All that and a couple of festival-favorite features, coming soon to a functional Wi-Fi signal near you. Here’s what you’ll be streaming this October. (For network,

Movie Review – The Little Stranger (2018)

The Little Stranger, 2018.

Directed by Lenny Abrahamson.

Starring Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Will Poulter, Charlotte Rampling and Liv Hill.

Synopsis:

A doctor provides care for the eccentric family who live in a crumbling 18th century mansion during the postwar years, only for mysterious and dark events to take place within its walls.

A few weeks ago, The Nun cast a chill through UK cinemas – more because it was utterly terrible than because it was scary. It did, however, mark the return of pure gothic horror to UK cinema screens and to the top of the box office, a few years after Guillermo del Toro’s delightfully lurid Crimson Peak failed to make any sort of impression on critics or audiences. Immediately in the wake of Corin Hardy’s Conjuring movie comes something equally gothic, but very different, in the shape of The Little Stranger – Lenny Abrahamson’s first movie since

TV Review: ‘The Miniaturist’ on PBS

  • Variety
A solid edition of the PBS “Masterpiece” lineup tends to indulge some combination of the following: a plucky heroine, a secretly soft hero, a compelling romance and/or mystery, and a lush period backdrop to set it all off. “The Miniaturist” — based on Jessie Burton’s 2014 novel — technically works well as the latest entry, traveling back to 1686 Amsterdam for a tale laced with secrecy, intrigue, and even a hint of supernatural subterfuge. It features a determined heroine in teen bride Nella, sent to live in a new home with a rich and broody new husband Johannes Brandt (Alex Hassell), his wary sister Marin (Romola Garai), and a pair of servants — surly Cornelia (Hayley Squires) and loyal Otto (Paapa Essiedu) — who know much more about all of the above than they initially let on.

But things only start to take off once Johannes gifts Nella with a dollhouse modeled after her new home,

‘Crimson Peak’ Blu-ray From Arrow Video Gives Guillermo del Toro’s Gothic Romance the Love It Deserves

Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak Midnights at The Tivoli This Weekend

“Ghosts are real, that much I know. I’ve seen them all my life…”

Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak plays this weekend (August 24th and 25th) at The Tivoli at midnight as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli midnight series.

A couple of years before winning this year’s Oscars, Guillermo del Toro delivered a beautiful tale of unexpected love, sorrow, twist and passion with his 2015 ghost story Crimson Peak.

Crimson Peak is the tale of an aspiring author named Edith (Mia Wasikowska). In the aftermath of a family tragedy, she is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past,

Watch: Actor Javier Botet Talks About Being The Super Lanky Movie Monster In Films

Most folks know the names Doug Jones and Andy Serkis, but far fewer people probably know the name Javier Botet.

Basically, if you see a super lanky creature with big hands in a film, it's probably Botet.

Legendary, Warner Bros. Near Distribution Deal (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Legendary Entertainment will likely leave its distribution and co-financing pact with Universal Studios early, according to multiple insiders. The company behind “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” is decamping for Warner Bros., its former home. A deal has yet to be signed, but the two entertainment players are in exclusive negotiations and are expected to come to an agreement shortly.

However, the deal will be much different than previous pacts that Legendary has signed, signaling a larger strategic shift that’s taken place at the company following a series of box office flops and the departure of its founder Thomas Tull in 2017. Namely, the Warner Bros. alliance will be a straight output deal, meaning that the studio will release Legendary’s films for a fee. It will not be a slate financing partnership, which was the kind of alliance that Legendary had at Warner Bros. during an eight-year relationship that ended in 2013. Warner Bros.

The Tivoli Announces the ‘Reel Late’ Midnight Line-Up – The Witch, Eraserhead, Mad Max

“You killed Ted, you medieval dickweed!”

Another brilliant lineup of midnight movies for the ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ to kick off the summer 2018 season. It’s an especially good variety of titles that will draw the late night movie buff crowd with several retro surprises. The Midnight Movie experience has always catered to a college-age crowd and that’s the way it should be. The oldest film this time is David Lynch’s Eraserhead from 1978 and the most recent is The Witch from 2015. There’s a Miyazaki of course (Spirited Away) and a couple of standards including Bill And Ted’S Excellent Adventure and Ghost In The Shell . I’ve been hosting the midnight show at The Tivoli for ten years now and I’m certain Crimson Peak, But I’M A Cheerleader and The Witch, all new to the Tivoli midnight roster, will draw good crowds.

Jessica Chastain Joined ‘It: Chapter Two’ Because She’s a Stephen King Fan Who Loves How Horror ‘Empowers Women’

Jessica Chastain Joined ‘It: Chapter Two’ Because She’s a Stephen King Fan Who Loves How Horror ‘Empowers Women’
It was the kind of casting that seems preordained: When Jessica Chastain was officially tapped in February to play the adult Beverly Marsh in the much-anticipated horror sequel “It: Chapter Two,” the news came only after months of fans dream casting the redhead for the role, drumming up enough chatter that Chastain herself happily admitted to wanting the role in November of last year. The chance to take on the part of grown up Beverly (played by Sophia Lillis in the 2017 horror hit) also appealed to Chastain because it would reunite her with two of her favorite collaborators: director Andy Muschietti and his producer sister Barbara Muschietti.

But that wasn’t the only element that spoke to her. Like plenty of other genre fans, Chastain grew up reading Stephen King’s books and watching the movies they inspired, even if she was perhaps a smidge too young to dip into his brand of terror.

Here’s Who Should Play the Kids From ‘It’ as Adults in ‘Chapter 2’ (and Who Really Is Playing Them)

  • The Wrap
Here’s Who Should Play the Kids From ‘It’ as Adults in ‘Chapter 2’ (and Who Really Is Playing Them)
Stephen King’s novel “It” is actually two parallel stories, about a group of seven kids fighting the monstrous clown Pennywise, and then returning to finish the job as adults. With “It: Chapter One” a huge horror movie success, here’s who we think should pick up the reins in “It: Chapter Two.”

Bill Denbrough (Jaeden Lieberher): Edward Norton

An essential part of Bill Denbrough is that, as a child, he struggled with a stuttering problem. Jaeden Lieberher did a solid job dealing with the stutter as the leader of the Losers Club. Edward Norton, who has a decent physical resemblance to Lieberher, has proven to be one of the best stutterers possibly ever in his turn in the 1996 thriller “Primal Fear.” When he returns to Derry, the stutter does to, giving Norton a chance to deploy those skills again.

Jaeden Lieberher’s Choice: Christian Bale
