Stranger Things season 3 confirmed

10 hours ago

John Saavedra Aug 22, 2017

The Duffer Bros. have confirmed that Stranger Things season 3 is a go!

Although Stranger Things season 2 isn't due out until October, we've already received our first bit of season 3 news. In an interview with New York Magazine, creators Matt and Ross Duffer have confirmed that Netflix has already greenlit a third season of the show. They also revealed that there will likely be a fourth season that will probably be the show's last.

“We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” Ross told Nym. “We just have to keep adjusting the story,” said Matt. “Though I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year.”

It's true, after three straight years of monsters invading the town of Hawkins, Indiana, it might be time for the characters to pitch their tents elsewhere. »

Trust Me episode 3 review

Trust Me’s third episode was worth the wait, as this medical thriller finally becomes thrilling…

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Trust Me episode 2 review Trust Me episode 1 review

Now we’re talking. It’s taken two episodes to bring Trust Me to a riveting place, but it’s there. The third instalment was an involving hour that not only gave us much-needed clarity into Cath’s until-now opaque motivation for lying, it also placed her in some gripping situations.

Cath’s speech on the contempt the real Ally Sutton showed for her career and how casually she tossed it away framed her crime as a class revolt, thereby shining a light on her hitherto murky motivation. Perhaps I shouldn’t have needed to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, but there you are.

Cath is clearly as bright and capable as any doctor, »

American Made review

20 hours ago

Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman reteam for American Made. Here's our review of a great crime drama...

There are certain things you can generally count on in a Tom Cruise movie: running really fast, smiling winningly at ladies and hurtling around in fast cars, or on motorbikes, or in planes. Also, he’ll be topless at least once.

See related  Trust Me episode 2 review Trust Me episode 1 review

Cruise’s second collaboration with director Doug Liman (they previously brought us the unexpectedly great sci-fi action film, Edge Of Tomorrow), American Made requires quite a bit more from the Hollywood stars than just winning smiles and stunts - though the movie does deliver plenty of those too. Cruise plays Barry Seal, a former Twa commercial pilot who, at the behest of an enigmatic guy with a beard who calls himself Schafer (Domhnall Gleeson) winds up flying planes for the CIA. »

Preacher season 2 episode 10 review: Dirty Little Secret

Ron Hogan Aug 22, 2017

Preacher season 2 is staying true to its scatalogical, scandalous and sacrilegious comic book roots, as episode 10 shows. Spoilers...

2.10 Dirty Little Secret

Whatever you might say about the additions to the source material, there's no a doubt in my mind that Preacher is trying to stay as true to the original comic book as humanly possible. Things have been adjusted to be slightly more palatable and less graphic for public consumption, but everything people wanted to see from Preacher is still there on TV in one form or another. The show hasn't shied away from the scatological, scandalous, and sacrilegious elements that made the comic a hit and inspired Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to bring it to television, devoting years of their lives and careers to making this happen the way they wanted it to. »

This episode begins, as usual, with the fight scene promised by the previous episode. To be honest I’m a little bored of seeing the various Marvel Netflix shows doing that thing where they repeatedly confront the main villain only for the fight to end in a stalemate, so at least »

True Lies, The Abyss: James Cameron reaffirms Blu-ray plans

Simon Brew Aug 22, 2017

James Cameron explains why the Blu-ray release of True Lies and The Abyss took a back seat...

Amongst the notable absentees on the Blu-ray format are two James Cameron features that could happily enjoy the upgrade to 1080p.

The films in question? 1989’s underwater adventure The Abyss, and 1995’s Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle, True Lies. Cameron has been said to have been working on Blu-rays for both in the past, but over a decade into the life of the format, and neither film has appeared yet.

James Cameron has given an update on his plans, and he’s confirmed that both films are still on the way. “I’m working on that”, he said to The Arnold Fans. “The True Lies Blu-ray and The Abyss Blu-ray have sort of fallen off my to-do list, getting one, not two, »

The Chinese film that’s grossed $769m and counting

Simon Brew Aug 22, 2017

One of the biggest films of the year barely scraped a few quid in UK cinemas. But Wolf Warrior 2 is a juggernaut...

One of the biggest box office successes of the year is closing in on $800m – and that’s purely off one country’s takings.

Wolf Warrior 2 stars and is directed by Wu Jing, and after nearly a month in Chinese cinemas its take is at an astonishing $768.5m. If you wanted a further signifier as to the power of Chinese box office – and why Hollywood is so aggressively chasing it – then let that be it.

The film has enjoyed small releases in Australia, New Zealand and the UK so far, as well as a limited run in the Us. But they between them have only added shy of $4m to the film’s total. Wolf Warrior 2 has now dethroned Avatar as the film to make »

The Xena: Warrior Princess reboot is not happening

21 August 2017 3:09 PM, PDT

Kirsten Howard David Crow Aug 22, 2017

NBC has confirmed that its Xena: Warrior Princess reboot has been nixed...

The gods truly are a cruel and uncaring breed. After promising fans a return to the world of Xena: Warrior Princess and her wild adventures, the planned NBC reboot is apparently dead.

The news was confirmed late on Monday by The Hollywood Reporter, who said that NBC considers the project to be already in the bowels of Hades.

While chatting with the trade, NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said, “Nothing is happening on that right now. We looked at some material; we decided at that point that it didn’t warrant the reboot. I’d never say never on that one, because it’s such a beloved title, but the current incarnation of it is dead.”

Talk about a cruel stab of fate.

The project already seemed to be on the outs after »

Paul Greengrass' next film is heading to Netflix

21 August 2017 3:09 PM, PDT

David Crow Aug 22, 2017

Paul Greengrass of United 93 and Bourne fame will make a Netflix film about a right-wing Christian terrorist attack in Norway.

Netflix is becoming brazen about their business model for releasing original films. While they have had some gems in the past like Beasts Of No Nation and Barry, this summer had their first bonafide hit: the wonderful Okja. And with Will Smith and David Ayer’s Bright just around the corner, their talk about making the theatrical model obsolete is emboldened with yet another filmmaker joining Ayer, Martin Scorsese, and other heavy hitters on the small screen.

Thus enter Deadline announcing Monday afternoon that Paul Greengrass of the Bourne movies and United 93 is making his next true story drama about terrorism for the streaming giant. In an unnamed film, Greengrass will give a dramatic account of the far-right Norwegian terrorist Andres Behring Breivik, who in »

The Sound trailer, starring Rose McGowan & Christopher Lloyd

21 August 2017 12:09 PM, PDT

Joseph Baxter Aug 22, 2017

The Sound trailer shows the unusual team-up of Rose McGowan and Christopher Lloyd as paranormal investigators.

While The Conjuring films may have rejuvenated the box office viability of the paranormal horror genre, a smaller scale movie, called The Sound, comes to the table with something unique: Rose McGowan and Christopher Llloyd teaming up to battle a malevolent spirit. 

Video of The Sound Official Trailer

The Sound trailer centres on McGowan’s Kelly Johansen, a passionate skeptic of the paranormal who, armed with an expertise in acoustics, utilises soundwaves as the primary tool of reports that she posts online. However, the debunking activities lead her to a case in an abandoned subway – built on a graveyard – in which a purportedly hoaxed suicide occurred 40 years earlier.

Ironically, the case not only uncovers paranormal proof, but makes Kelly the target of a malevolent spirit, forcing her to see disturbing imagery and memories. »

Jurassic World Evolution: first trailer

Matthew Byrd Aug 22, 2017

See if you can manage a Jurassic Park that doesn't turn into a disaster in this new game from the makers of Elite Dangerous...

Frontier Developments, the studio behind space epic Elite Dangerous, have confirmed that they are working on a new game based on Jurassic World called Jurassic World Evolution.

See related  Trust Me episode 2 review Trust Me episode 1 review

Jurassic World Evolution is perhaps best thought of as a Jurassic Park-themed take on SimCity. Rather than cast you as one of the park's visitors, it allows you to oversee the operations of a park of your own design. The extent of your ability to customise the park is still unknown - we're still unsure if you will be able to design the park's basic layout from the start - but it does seem like you'll have some control over where certain buildings and attractions are placed. »

17 films to catch at Horror Channel FrightFest 2017

21 August 2017 3:13 AM, PDT

Den Of Geek Aug 22, 2017

Horror Channel FrightFest takes place in London this weekend. Here's our pick of films to look out for...

Summer’s almost over and what better way to welcome in the spooky season than by hiding from the heat in a darkened room, with five days of wall-to-wall horror? Yep, it’s August Bank Holiday and that means the 18th annual London Horror Channel FrightFest is upon us. For some, this is a familiar pilgrimage. Veterans will be used to bloodshot eyes, numbness in the spine, a lack of nutrition and an acute anxiousness every time there’s a loud noise. For others, it may be their first visit and these are things to look forward to. Either way, FrightFest promises probably the biggest, purest, uncut dose of horror you can endure without going insane, complete with special guests, world premieres, live events and at least a couple of parties. »

Rick And Morty season 3 episode 5 review: The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy

Rick And Morty season 3 delivers yet another winning episode in The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy. Spoilers...

This review contains spoilers.

3.5 The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy

I certainly didn’t expect two truly brilliant Rick And Morty episodes in succession and, furthermore, that The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy might even be better than Vindicators 3: The Return Of Worldender, but here we are.

Both episodes have razor-sharp, laugh-out-loud jokes throughout. Where Whirly Dirly has an edge over Worldender is that it takes the characters in completely new directions. With Community, Dan Harmon made a point of having a cast of characters who would be successfully entertaining, no matter how they were paired off, each configuration resulting in a fun and interesting dynamic. He and the other writers have now managed the same feat with Rick And Morty.
