Sun, 01/08/2017 - 20:04

The one thing you cannot say about this year's Golden Globes was that it was boring. Far from it. Not only did La La Land set a record with seven wins for one single film, but the show was stuffed with some shocking surprises.

Everyone's Favorite Possessed Doll Is Coming Back in 'Cult of Chucky'

Fri, 01/06/2017 - 06:37

The big horror franchises of the '80s followed a pretty similar life cycle. Churn out sequels year after year at first, slow down, eventually stop entirely, then reboot 20-plus years later. Then, when the reboot doesn't hit big, get rebooted all over again just a few years later. That's the pattern Halloween, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street all fell into. But one '80s horror icon escaped that trend: Chucky. Chucky, a doll possessed by the spirit of serial killer...

Rather than a production still, it's a photo from behind the scenes, featuring director Taika Waititi and star Chris Hemsworth (aka Thor), which is an interesting choice.

Thu, 01/05/2017 - 12:14

The future of the main X-Men films is now up in the air, but the franchise as a whole received an injection of fresh, inventive spunk thanks to last year's R-rated Deadpool. That new wave of edgier, riskier Marvel material will continue with this year's R-rated Logan. In that film, Patrick Stewart will once again reprise the role of Charles Xavier for a story set in the near future -- one that seems to pick up Xavier's journey at a time when he's aged considerably and...

Is This Our First Tease of a Future Obi-Wan Kenobi 'Star Wars' Movie?

Thu, 01/05/2017 - 07:23

The success of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story means we're going to get more Star Wars spin-off movies. The first is already happening, and it'll take place around the same time as Rogue One while also serving as an origin story of sorts for Han Solo. Disney/Lucasfilm will likely move forward with a third (and maybe fourth) spin-off film, but what they will be about is anyone's guess. Originally plans were afoot for a Boba Fett-centric movie directed by Josh Trank, but that went away...
