New Fast & Furious 9 Teaser Trailer Is All About Family

Trailers for upcoming blockbusters have been dropping at an alarming rate over the last month or so. You might even say they’ve been hitting the web at a fast and furious pace (sorry). Be it Black Widow, No Time To Die, Wonder Woman 1984 or Ghostbusters: Afterlife, among several others, hype for 2020’s biggest and most exciting films is officially picking up.

Another preview that we know we’re getting though is one for Fast & Furious 9. We’re quickly approaching its May release yet we still haven’t seen anything from it. Not even a post-credit scene to tease what was to come in last year’s Hobbs & Shaw. The anticipation will soon be over though, as the first full trailer for the pic lands on January 31st and ahead of its debut, Universal has now dropped a quick teaser that reveals the first bit of footage from the film,

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Won't Bring Back Rick Moranis as Louis Tully?
Rick Moranis reportedly will not reprise his Louis Tully role in Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Moranis also did not take part in the 2016 all-female reboot. The news comes after Bill Murray spoke out publicly about coming back to the franchise for the first time, noting that Jason Reitman's script is really good. Murray also noted that the script for the highly anticipated sequel has a lot of emotion and doesn't shy away from the fact that Harold Ramis is no longer with us. As Ghostbusters fans know, Murray has been cagey about a sequel for decades now, so his words should carry some weight.

In the original reports about Bill Murray and Ghostbusters: Afterlife set visits, it is mentioned that Rick Moranis did not return to join the rest of the surviving cast. Joining Murray are Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts. Moranis has largely been out of the spotlight for over 20 years,

Halloween Kills: Anthony Michael Hall Gets Paul Rudd's Blessing as the New Tommy Doyle
In this year's horror sequel Halloween Kills, Anthony Michael Hall will be playing the adult version of Tommy Doyle, one of the two children babysat by Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) in the original movie. Longtime fans of the series will know that Hall is not the only person to play an older version of the character, as Paul Rudd famously played the part in 1995. The role may now be changing hands once again, but from one Tommy Doyle to another, Rudd offered Hall his support in taking on the role.

Recently, Anthony Michael Hall spoke about his role in Halloween Kills in a new interview. The actor revealed that Rudd called director David Gordon Green during the shoot, and it sounds like he's thrilled to have Hall playing Tommy Doyle next. After Rudd told Green how happy he was for Hall to step into the role, Green passed the

'The Turning' Star Finn Wolfhard on 'Ghostbusters' Humor and 'Stranger Things 4'
Much like his Ghostbusters character, Finn Wolfhard enjoys discovering relics of the past. Whether it’s recording a song for The Turning soundtrack with a bass guitar that belonged to Nirvana or eagerly starting the Ecto-1’s Corvette engine, the recently turned 17-year-old is keen on understanding the nostalgia that drives many of his works. Wolfhard even reveled in a steady diet of classic ‘70s cinema during his recent holiday break in Vancouver.

Bill Murray Officially Confirmed For Ghostbusters: Afterlife

One of the biggest questions surrounding the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife was how much the legacy cast members would factor into the story. Paul Feig’s much-maligned 2016 reboot brought back many of the franchise’s familiar faces, but made the strange narrative decision to cast every single one of them in brand new roles in attempt to establish that his take on the team wasn’t connected to the first two installments.

That call was one of many that saw the last Ghostbusters movie face incredible backlash, but now we’re only six months away from the latest attempt to reinvent the series. Ghostbusters: Afterlife hails from Jason Reitman, who is more than familiar with the source material as the son of original director Ivan, and the filmmaker looks set to put a fresh spin on a brand that’s been around since 1984.

Paul Rudd Gave Anthony Michael Hall His Blessing To Play Tommy Doyle In Halloween Kills

Blumhouse successfully relaunched the Halloween franchise back in 2018 and now, after a year out, Michael Myers is returning once again this October for the first half of a massive two-part finale that promises to end the saga of Myers vs. Laurie Strode once and for all.

Halloween Kills will again star Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie, with another character from the 1978 original featuring, too: Tommy Doyle, once the young boy babysat by Laurie when the Shape attacked. As fans will know, Paul Rudd first played an adult Tommy back in 1995’s Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers. Since then, of course, Rudd’s career has exploded and he was unable to reprise his role in Kills due to his prior commitment to Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

Instead, Anthony Michael Hall is taking over the part. And it turns out he was given Rudd’s blessing. Hall revealed this fun tidbit while speaking on the Fantasm Podcast,

The Witcher Season 2 Will Reportedly Adapt Blood Of Elves

Netflix’s The Witcher has been steadily assembling a dedicated fanbase since its premiere in December. The series quickly became one of the most popular on the platform, we may be getting an animated spinoff and showrunner Lauren Hissrich has already said that they have plans for a story that spans seven seasons.

But with season 2 now in pre-production, what can we expect from it? Well, according to sources close to Wgtc – the same ones who told us Bill Murray would return in Ghostbusters: Afterlife and that a new Scream movie is in the works, both of which have been confirmed – the next run will be a rough adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s first full novel in the Witcher saga: Blood of Elves (which followed two short story collections).

Taking inspiration from Blood of Elves makes a lot of sense, too. As with the first season, it’s unlikely that

Finn Wolfhard Is as Excited as We Are About Stranger Things Season 4: "It Feels Like Home"

It's honestly unfair how Stranger Things hooks us with every season and leaves us wanting more. The third installment, which hit Netflix back in July, left us on a major cliffhanger, and we're now waiting for the fourth season with bated breath. We don't know when the series will return (it's still in the early stages of production), but we do know that one of the show's biggest stars, Finn Wolfhard, is just as hyped about it as we are. "I start filming in a few months," the 17-year-old actor revealed to Popsugar over the phone on Jan. 11. "It's nice to come back and have a routine." That routine will involve Wolfhard reprising his role as Mike Wheeler - one of the main protagonists who helps battle the monstrous forces of the Upside Down.

Paul Feig Wants His Ghostbusters 2016 Team to Return, Hopes for Afterlife Crossover

Paul Feig Wants His Ghostbusters 2016 Team to Return, Hopes for Afterlife Crossover
We probably won't be seeing a sequel to 2016's Ghostbusters reboot anytime soon, but director Paul Feig is willing to settle for a crossover. This summer, the highly anticipated movie Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be hitting theaters, bringing the franchise back to the big screen after a four year absence. As most of us know, the movie serves as a direct sequel to the original Ghostbusters and its 1989 sequel, completely ignoring the 2016 reboot. More than likely, this also spells the end of Feig's Ghostbusters canon, though the director is still holding out hope for seeing the reboot's characters return in a crossover movie.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association panel for Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist, Feig had this to say about the concept of seeing Abby, Erin, Patty, and Jillian once again, possible even in a crossover with Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

Finn Wolfhard Returns to Music for ‘The Turning’ Soundtrack
Finn Wolfhard heads back to the Nineties (again) for his new song, “Getting Better (Otherwise),” from The Turning soundtrack.

Wolfhard stars in the upcoming adaptation of Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw as Miles, a wealthy orphan who lives alone in a massive manor with his sister, Flora, and their housekeeper Mrs. Grose. Things start to unravel when a new governess, Kate, moves in to tend to Flora. It’s a tale as old as time (or the 1800s): Is the house haunted or is Kate just insane?
