Patrick Stewart and Rebecca Ferguson in talks for Joe Cornish’s The Kid Who Would Be King

2 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in May it was announced that Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) is set to direct the fantasy adventure The Kid Who Would Be King, and now comes word from The Tracking Board that Patrick Stewart (Logan) and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) are in talks to join the cast.

The film revolves around a group of kids who embark on an epic quest to thwart a Medieval menace named Morgana who is the half-sister of King Arthur. Andy Serkis’ son Louis Serkis (Taboo) is set for the lead role of Alex, a young boy who discovers the mythical sword Excalibur. He is joined in the cast by Tom Taylor (The Dark Tower) Rhianna Dorris (Secret Life of Boys), Angus Imrie (Kingdom), Denise Gough (Guerrilla) and newcomer Dean Chaumoo.

‘Gerald’s Game’ Review: Kinky Sex Goes Wrong, but It’s Stephen King Done Right

17 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“It” and “The Dark Tower” have the highest profiles in a year of Stephen King adaptations, but “Gerald’s Game” best demonstrates the paradoxical nature of bringing his work to the screen. The master of pulpy horror tends to go long on prose, burrowing so deep inside his characters’ psyches that the stories often lose their way. That storytelling gamble is perfectly illustrated by “Gerald’s Game,” in which a woman’s chained to a bed in a kinky sex game gone wrong, wandering the contours of her own mind. How do you make a movie out of that? Director Mike Flanagan figured it out.

It takes a specific kind of filmmaker to tackle the challenges of a single-set survival movie, whether it’s Danny Boyle in a canyon (“127 Hours”) or Rodrigo Cortés inside a coffin (“Buried”), but the closest cinematic comparison to “Gerald’s Game” is James Wan’s “Saw, »

‘1922’ Review: ‘The Shining’ Meets ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ in the Year’s Most Impressive Stephen King Adaptation — Fantastic Fest

23 September 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Netflix-produced “1922” has jolts of violence and sweeping period details, but in a year overrun with Stephen King adaptations, it’s also the simplest of them: “It” features a ludicrous shapeshifting clown, “The Dark Tower” is an inter-dimensional sci-fi western fantasy, and “Gerald’s Game” has kinky sex gone wrong and a giant goal. In “1922,” a guy kills his wife and feels guilty about it. That’s the gist of its premise, and while nothing groundbreaking, the story mines a degree of profundity out of the traditional supernatural thriller tropes at its core.

As directed by Zak Hilditch (whose 2013 debut “These Final Hours” was an expressionistic apocalyptic tale), “1922” (originally a King short story) has the merits of a solid “Tales From the Crypt” or “Masters of Horror” episode, with a »

‘1922’ Trailer: The Year of Stephen King Movies Continues with Thomas Jane Killing His Wife

22 September 2017 1:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While we’ve never been hurting for Stephen King adaptations (you can’t really go more than a couple years without getting at least one), 2017 has already seen two film adaptations of the author’s work with The Dark Tower and It (the latter now the highest grossing horror film of all-time) with Gerald’s Game and 1922 on the way.  Netflix has now released a 1922 trailer, and it looks as suitably creepy as we’ve come to expect from films based on King’s horror stories. The story takes place in 1922 and follows a poor … »

First trailer for Stephen King adaptation 1922 starring Thomas Jane

22 September 2017 11:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from this year’s The Dark Tower and It, Netflix is set to close out 2017 with two further Stephen King adaptations in Gerald’s Game and 1922. We got a trailer for the former earlier this month [see here], and now the streaming service has unveiled its first look at 1922.

Written and directed by Zak Hilditch and based on King’s novella from Full Dark, No Stars, the horror sees Thomas Jane (The Mist) leading a cast that includes Molly Parker, Dylan Schmid, Kaitlyn Bernard, Brian D’Arcy James and Neal McDonough; watch it here…

“1922 is based on Stephen King’s 131-page story telling of a man’s confession of his wife’s murder. The tale is told from from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story’s unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, »

‘1922’ Trailer: Stephen King’s Haunting Novella Comes to Netflix Just in Time for Halloween

22 September 2017 11:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Netflix must be pretty happy over the fact that “It” is the highest grossing horror film in box office history. The streaming giant is surely hoping all the recent Stephen King attention will turn two upcoming originals into hits: “Gerald’s Game” and “1922.” The trailer has officially premiered for the latter, and you should not watch it if rats give you the creeps.

“1922” is based off the King novella that was featured in his 2010 collection “Full Dark, No Stars.” Thomas Jane plays a farmer who conspires to kill his wife (Molly Parker) and recruits his son to help him commit the crime. But the wife won’t go down without a haunting, and soon the farmer is attacked by rats and becomes convinced his dead former lover is haunting him from beyond the grave. »

Thomas Jane in Trailer for Yet Another Stephen King Adaptation '1922'

22 September 2017 9:52 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"A woman have to be crazy to leave a nice house like this one." Netflix has debuted an official trailer for yet another Stephen King adaptation this year, this one titled 1922 based on one of his short stories. From director Zak Hilditch, 1922 is about a rancher who wants to kill his wife to make money, and attempts to convince his teenage son to participate. Thomas Jane stars, and the cast includes Molly Parker, Neal McDonough, Brian d'Arcy James, Dylan Schmid, and Kaitlyn Bernard. This joins the growing list of Stephen King adaptations in 2017, including The Dark Tower, It, Netflix's Gerald's Game, and "The Mist" TV series. This film looks like it has some style, and is as dark and twisted as everything from King's mind. Here's the first official trailer for Zak Hilditch's 1922, direct from Netflix's YouTube: "Life is rarely fair." A simple yet proud rancher in the year »

‘1922’ Trailer: The Dead Don’t Stay Dead In Latest Stephen King Adaptation

22 September 2017 8:33 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As a Stephen King agnostic myself, I have remained largely indifferent to the ubiquity of King-related film and television content this year. This hasn’t been easy, as 2017 is angling — as aggressively as possible — to be the Year of Stephen King. I feel as though I’ve been bombarded with promos for (and breathless articles about) “The Dark Tower,” “It,” “The Mist,” and, to a lesser extent, “Mr.

Josh Greenstein Re-Ups as Sony Marketing and Distribution Chief

21 September 2017 3:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Josh Greenstein has renewed his contract to remain as Sony Pictures’ president of worldwide marketing and distribution. The deal is for three years.

He will continue to report to Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group Chairman Tom Rothman. Greenstein joined the studio in 2014, having been hired away from Paramount by Amy Pascal, Rothman’s predecessor. His employment status has been closely monitored, and there had been mutterings that he might decamp Sony at the end of his deal for a return engagement at Paramount or might segue to 20th Century Fox.

It wasn’t clear how Greenstein would get along with Rothman, given that he had been hired by Pascal. However, Rothman has been courting the executive to remain on board, according to insiders, arguing that after several bruising years at the box office, Sony was turning a corner. His pitch, it appears, worked.

“Josh is a true star in our industry,” said »

Disappointing August 2017 Closed Out the Worst Summer Movie Season in Over 10 Years

20 September 2017 8:18 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

As the September box office attempts to get 2017 back on track*the month is currently up 14% compared to last year*the chapter ends on what was a dismal August 2017 at the domestic box office. August was the fourth month in a row to show a decline compared to the previous year, all of which contributed to the worst Summer movie season in over ten years, in which the total summer gross failed to top $4 billion for the first time since 2006. August 2017 wrapped up as the worst August in twenty years with calendar grosses delivering a combined $657.7 million from 225 movies, 35.5% behind last year's gross and failing to top $700 million for the first time since 2000. Thanks to the continued performance of Annabelle: Creation, which just topped $100 million domestically yesterday, the month did deliver a $100+ million earner, a feat that looked as if it might not happen not too long ago.

The Dark Tower Blu-ray/DVD release date and bonus features

20 September 2017 6:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Simon Brew Sep 20, 2017

The Dark Tower is heading for its home release in the UK in December. Here are all the details you need...

Off the back of not very impressive reviews, the first film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower saga - starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey - struggled to gain much traction at the Us box office, only scrounging up $19.5m in its opening weekend. Whilst plans are still afoot for a television series based on the books, there are surely a few question marks over the planned film sequel to this particular movie.

Rick And Morty season 3 episode 8 review: Morty’s Mind Blowers

With season 3 being as excellent as it has been, the occasional goof-off episode doesn't hurt. Spoilers...

3.8 Morty's Mind Blowers

A major problem I had with season 2 is how so many episodes felt like goof-off episodes. There seemed to be little interest in developing the characters or multiverse in meaningful ways. Season 3 doesn’t have this problem; I mean, last week they convincingly built and destabilized an entire new society in 22 minutes. So, it’s okay that Morty’s Mind Blowers is a relatively incidental episode, content to pull off a bunch of good jokes and then close out.

It is a bit disappointing this takes the place of another Interdimensional Cable. Though it moves further and further away from it out of necessity, Rick And Morty’s foundation is built in part on Justin Roiland’s frantic, »
