‘Doctor Sleep’ Spoiler Review: A Powerful, Emotional Adaptation That Deserved More Attention
Time will be kind to Doctor Sleep, a bold, audacious, unapologetically sentimental horror film. The box office returns are paltry, and the film itself has its fair share of problems. And yet, Mike Flanagan‘s tender adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel shines because it’s so committed to embracing emotion. Stanley Kubrick’s cold, unfeeling, excellent The Shining jettisoned the […]

10 Hidden Details About The Overlook Hotel Everyone Missed In Doctor Sleep & The Shining

With the release of Doctor Sleep, the highly anticipated sequel to Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, the expected comparisons to the 1980 horror masterpiece have begun. Fans of Stephen King's novel, on which the film was based, were elated to find out that Doctor Sleep would also be a continuation of that storyline as well, taking inspiration from the sequel novel that King wrote featuring an adult Dan Torrance grappling with his demons from the Overlook Hotel.

The Overlook Hotel (really the Timberline Hotel) in Colorado was as much a character in Kubrick's film as the rest of the cast, with its curious geometric carpets, hedge maze, and spectral guests. Built on an old indigenous burial ground, its denizens seemed to be starved for anyone that possessed the "shining", Dan's special ability that wasn't featured as much in The Shining but makes a big appearance in Doctor Sleep.

Editorial: What Makes Doctor Sleep’s Rose the Hat So Appealing?

  • DailyDead
“Eat well, stay young, live long.” This is the motto that Doctor Sleep’s villain, Rose the Hat, lives by. It’s a motto that we all apply to ourselves, whether we speak it aloud or not. This is especially true for women, as staying young is a goal we all strive towards because god forbid we age. And, really, we’re not allowed to. We have to be Rose the Hat forever, and in a way, we want to be.

The latest Stephen King adaptation introduces the True Knot, a band of cult-like vampires who torture and kill children to feast on their “steam”—their psychic powers. As their leader, Rose does most of the torture and killing herself. She uses her natural, maternal air to trap her prey for a slow and painful death. She’s a villain of the highest degree, and one of the most frightening

'Ford v Ferrari' & 'Charlie's Angels' Look to Lead the Weekend

'Ford v Ferrari' & 'Charlie's Angels' Look to Lead the Weekend
Last weekend saw the top ten deliver the lowest combined total for the same weekend since 2007, bringing in just over $100 million. This weekend, should our forecast hold, we'll be looking at a sub-$100 million weekend for the top ten and what could be one of the worst weekends of the year. Among the week's new releases, Fox's Ford v Ferrari hopes to prove there is still an audience for adult-targeted, larger budget features alongside the release of Sony's Charlie's Angels and WB's The Good Liar.

At number one, look for Fox's Ford v Ferrari to pull into the winner's circle. A few months before Disney's acquisition of Fox was final, the decision was made to move director James Mangold's story of Ford's attempt to challenge Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966 from a summer release to a more awards-friendly Fall release.

Beverly Hills Cop 4 Heads to Netflix, Eddie Murphy to Return

Joseph Baxter Nov 14, 2019

Eddie Murphy’s long-mooted fourth Beverly Hills Cop film will bypass theaters, instead headed for Netflix in a deal with Paramount.

Beverly Hills Cop 4 has found a home with Netflix! Indeed, the decades-awaited fourth film in the franchise that upgraded Eddie Murphy to household name status finally appears to be getting out of its stay in developmental purgatory, ready to have streaming audiences burning doing the Neutron Dance.

Paramount Pictures, the property owner of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, has made a one-time deal that will see Netflix produce the fourth film, which – once again starring Eddie Murphy – is to manifest as an exclusive feature on the streaming giant's platform, according to Deadline. Murphy is reportedly collaborating with producer Jerry Bruckheimer to procure scripts and a director.

Beverly Hills Cop 4 with Eddie Murphy Is Officially Happening at Netflix
We're finally, officially getting Beverly Hills Cop 4. This past week has been all about the launch of Disney+. But you're not going to want to abandoned your Netflix subscription just yet. Netflix has scored the rights to make the long anticipated Beverly Hills Cop sequel, once again teaming with Eddie Murphy, who will return as iconic Detroit detective Axel Foley.

The announcement comes after Eddie Murphy just had a career defining turn in the comedic biopic Dolemite is My Name for the streaming service. This move deepens the relationship between Eddie Murphy, who had somewhat fallen out of the public eye the past few years after a string of flops, and Netflix, who is facing more competition now in the streaming field than ever before, with Disney+ launching this past Tuesday and more on the way, such as Apple TV+ and HBO Max.

Netflix Licenses From Paramount Rights To Make ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ Sequel With Eddie Murphy & Jerry Bruckheimer

Netflix Licenses From Paramount Rights To Make ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ Sequel With Eddie Murphy & Jerry Bruckheimer
Exclusive: Beverly Hills Cop Axel Foley will come back to active duty…for Netflix. Paramount has made a one-time license deal — with an option for a sequel — that will enable Netflix to make the fourth installment of the film with Eddie Murphy and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The studio had been developing a reboot for awhile. It is another example of studios striking inventive deals with Netflix at a time when long gestating sequels like The Shining followup Doctor Sleep, The Terminator: Dark Fate and Zombieland: Double Tap have been hard pressed to measure up to the grosses of their predecessors, with at least two of them in line to lose money because of the high cost of P&A.

This deal gives Netflix a sexy title with a big star and it gives Paramount an opportunity to reap revenue on a library title. Paramount launched the franchise in 1984 with the Martin Brest original,

Will Ford V Ferrari Race Past Charlie's Angels at the Weekend Box Office?

  • MovieWeb
Midway pulled a surprise upset at the box office last weekend, bringing in $17.8 million, which bested Doctor Sleep. Warner Bros.' ambitious sequel to The Shining did a lot less business than had been expected, based on estimates. Things aren't going to get any easier this weekend as a trio of newcomers will give moviegoers a bevy of options. Fox's Ford V Ferrari, Sony's Charlie's Angels and Warner Bros.' The Good Liar all make their way to theaters, but which newcomer will take the top spot?

That, it would seem, will be an easy answer, as Ford v Ferrari, the latest from director James Mangold (Logan) is poised to race past the box office competition this weekend. Industry estimates have the racing flick, which is an awards season hopeful, bringing in between $20 and $30 million. Even on the low end, that should be just enough to squeak by the competition.

'Midway' Star Patrick Wilson on HBO's 'Watchmen,' 'Aquaman 2' and 'Conjuring 3'

'Midway' Star Patrick Wilson on HBO's 'Watchmen,' 'Aquaman 2' and 'Conjuring 3'
Every word and syllable matters to Patrick Wilson, something his Midway character would likely appreciate.

Roland Emmerich’s Midway surprised the industry this past weekend when it debuted at the domestic box office with $21 million, upsetting the heavy favorite, Doctor Sleep, for the top spot. In a way, it’s a fitting turn of events for a film about the Battle of Midway, one of the greatest American underdog stories in the history of warfare.

Wilson plays Admiral Edwin T. Layton, an intelligence officer during World War II, whose belief in code-breaking nearly thwarted the attack on Pearl Harbor and played a key ...

‘Ford v Ferrari’ To Do Donuts Around ‘Charlie’s Angels’ With $50M Global Opening

  • Deadline
Fox/Chernin Entertainment’s Ford v Ferrari, an original movie aimed at older males about the 1966 Le Mans race between Henry Ford II and Enzo Ferrari, will lay claim to the No. 1 spot at the domestic box office with a $20 million, maybe even $30M+ start. That will stop Sony’s franchise reboot of Charlie’s Angels in its tracks with its lowest opening in the series — $10M-$12M per industry estimates at 3,400 theaters.

The first two Charlie’s Angels movies, which starred Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu and were directed by McG, opened to $40.1M (2000’s Charlie’s Angels) and $37.6M (2003’s Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle), respectively.

Also this frame comes New Line/Bron StudiosBill Condon-directed Helen Mirren-Ian McKellen movie The Good Liar, which is tracking in the low-single digits. If it’s lucky and finds its much older 60+ audience, the pic could

Both the book and film adaptations of Neil Gaiman's Coraline are certainly worthy of the praise and fandom they've received since they've hit their respected shelves. Gaiman's gruesome yet kid-friendly tale of a girl who discovers a parallel world in a secret room of her house has delighted and terrified readers for years, and so has the movie.

Doctor Sleep was expected to be a big hit for Warner Bros., and the studio had such high hopes that they were already planning a sequel.

Doctor Sleep 2 Was Being Planned, Will It Still Happen?

Doctor Sleep 2 Was Being Planned, Will It Still Happen?
Those who enjoyed Doctor Sleep are probably going to be disappointed to find out that a sequel was already in development that will probably never see the light of day. The Stephen King adaptation, which serves as a sequel to The Shining, was released in theaters over the weekend and arrived with something of a messy thud. As such, Warner Bros. is going to do its best to simply mitigate its losses, so any talk of Doctor Sleep 2 will surely exist in the realm of what could have been, rather than what may be.

According to a new report detailing Doctor Sleep bombing at the box office over the weekend, Warner Bros. had a great deal of confidence in the project and director Mike Flanagan's vision. So much so, in fact, that studio chief Toby Emmerich had already inked a deal with Flanagan and his production company Intrepid Pictures to work on a sequel.

A Doctor Sleep Sequel Was Reportedly Already In Development

Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s popular novel The Shining is widely considered as one of the best horror movies ever made. Not only is it a deeply disturbing piece of psychological terror, but it also boasts a skillfully crafted score that resounds with ominous dread, blood-curdling imagery that will linger with you long after the credits have rolled and a ton of deep, poetic symbolism centered around a mind unravelling in a haunted hotel in the midst of winter.

Fast forward 39 years and Mike Flanagan’s recently released sequel Doctor Sleep – which sees central character Danny Torrance all grown up, struggling with his childhood trauma – has sadly released to very underwhelming box office earnings. Nevertheless, it looks like Warner Bros. was actively planning on developing a trilogy out of the psychological horror franchise.

Interestingly, WB had commissioned Flanagan to pen Halloran, a new movie focused on the
