(Aotn) It has already been quite a year for Stephen King fans with the theatrical releases of both “The Dark Tower” and “It” and now we can anticipate the upcoming Hulu limited series “Castle Rock”. “Castle Rock” will be a psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, it will combine the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.
Hulu has committed to a 10-episode first season and the project was developed for television by Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason, who serve as executive producers, along with J.J. Abrams, Ben Stephenson and Liz Glotzer. “Castle Rock” is from Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and it is sure to be epic.

Not for the first time, British thesp Idris Elba has gone on record to debunk any rumors linking him with the James Bond franchise.
Speculation was rife that The Dark Tower actor would assume the 00 license from Daniel Craig in the not-so-distant future, particularly after the latter appeared to display some hesitancy about returning for the untitled Bond 25. Looking back with the benefit of hindsight, though, MGM’s radio silence coupled with Craig’s wry British humor (“I’d rather slit my wrists”) produced something of a storm in a tea cup; after all, the series stalwart has agreed to reprise as Ian Fleming’s gun-toting sleuth one final time.
What’s more, the Powers That Be have already gone ahead and reserved a November 2019 release date for Bond 25, leading to all kinds of rumors about what the next chapter could entail. Last we reported, Yann Demange, Denis Villeneuve »

It defied already optimistic expectations last weekend, opening to mostly postive reviews and a staggering box office of $123m. Hot takes are afoot as to why It is such a mega hit, compared to the flopzilla of The Dark Tower. And amongst the good reviews was the adulation of one particular enfant terrible...

New Line Cinema's It remake gave the sagging box office a much-needed jolt after the worst summer season in 11 years, pulling in a massive $123.4 million, which even came in $6 million higher than the original estimate of $117.1 million. The tally easily set a new record for the highest September opening weekend in history, along with the highest debut for any horror movie in history, and provided even more proof that audiences are hungry for edgy R-rated fare. This weekend, Pennywise and The Losers Club will go up against three new movies opening in wide release, Lionsgate's action-packed adaptation American Assassin, Paramount's bizarre drama mother! and Open Road Films' thriller All I See Is You. None of these movies are expected to give It a serious run for the box office crown, with the movie easily expected to repeat atop the box office with $66.2 million.

Everything is connected in the Stephen King Universe. While this year’s The Dark Tower heavily played up the story’s connection to other King tales, loaded with direct references to everything from Cujo to The Shining, Andy Muschietti’s It didn’t quite take the same approach. But there was at least one fun King Easter egg that […] »

I’ve learned of a new way to see movies that’s beyond 3-D. Back when The Dark Tower was released I saw it in one of Regal’s 4Dx equipped theaters, and while it was unique it didn’t really work for the movie. With that said, I went to see New Line Cinema’s It again this past […] »

Image Source: Everett Collection Spoilers for the It movie and novel below! For the most part, the recent It film adaptation is pretty faithful to Stephen King's original 1986 novel, but there are a handful of key differences. In addition to leaving out the controversial sex scene, the updated iteration of the beloved horror tale also features a scene with Beverly Marsh (the only female member of the Losers Club, played by actress Sophia Lillis) that doesn't happen in King's story. At least, not at first. After Bev is kidnapped by Pennywise and dragged down to his lair, the demonic, shape-shifting clown holds her up in the air by her neck and opens its jaw all the way back so she's forced to stare deep into its throat. There are some glowing, orange lights moving around in there, which instantly cause Bev to go into a strange trance. She's eventually »

Marvel movies are big business, from the Avengers franchise and all of the interconnected heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on screens both big and small, to Fox's ever-expanding world of the X-Men and Deadpool, to the Sony steered Spider-man movies, going all the way back to Sam Raimi's original trilogy. But that doesn't mean every big name actor and A list talent in Hollywood wants to be associated with these characters. Some heavyweight actors have straight up said no way when Marvel came knocking. So, who would do such a thing?
Since becoming its own studio, which was later acquired by Disney in one of the biggest studio deals this side of Lucasfilm, Marvel has had no problem attracting top-tier A-list talent to its roster; the talent who commands major ticket grosses and critical acclaim alike. Who doesn't want to suit up as a one of Marvel's Merry Mutants, »

George Clooney says that the Oscars are not to blame for diversity issues in Hollywood. The actor and humanitarian has stated that the real issues in Hollywood over diversity start with studios and executives, not the Academy Awards. The Academy Awards have come under fire the last few years for a lack of diversity in the award winners. 2017 appeared to attempt to add more diversity to the awards ceremony after 2 straight years of almost all male Caucasian winners, but does the blame fall squarely on the Oscars?
2016 was when the industry got a true shakeup with the Oscars So White controversy when not one person of color was nominated in an acting category when movies like Creed and Straight Outta Compton showed some true promise during that award season. The backlash and negative press led to the 2017 awards show going out of its way to get away from the "old »

Pennywise tops the box office again, as Stephen King's It breaks September records...
The new adaptation of Stephen King's It has become the biggest September release of all time in the Us following its second weekend at the box office. The movie, in America, added another $60m, to take its Stateside total to $218m. Worldwide, the total for the adventure horror now stands at just north of $370m and climbing, with more territories still to open in. Expect the film to cross $500m at the box office by distance by the time it's done in cinemas...
From last weekend...
It’s little secret that big Hollywood studios have had a tough summer at the box office. But salvation has come – at least for now – in the shape of a horror movie.
“You’ll float too.”
The catchy tag line for the new film adaptation of Stephen King’s “It” might also apply to the egos of those behind the record-shattering box office hit (which must be about as inflated as Pennywise’s balloon). In its opening weekend, the R-rated horror film is expected to earn $117 million in North America. That’s the biggest opening ever during the month of September, and for a horror movie.
Jeff Goldstein, the distribution chief at Warner Bros., said he initially hoped for a launch around the film’s production budget — in the $30 million to $40 million range. “That would have been a marvelous,” he told Variety on a call Sunday morning. “After we dropped the first trailer, we realized we had something special. It really took the zeitgeist by storm.”
