‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Film Review: Linda Hamilton Is Back, and So Is the Franchise’s Mojo
Humans hunted by robot drones. Refugees huddled in camps. Bodies invaded without consent. This isn’t the dystopian future the heroes are trying to avoid in “Terminator: Dark Fate,” it’s the dystopian present they live in. Tim Miller’s welcome, topical, action-packed sequel smartly overlays the sci-fi spectacle of James Cameron’s first two “Terminator” movies on top of a contemporary world which is, in its own way, just as harrowing.

The first two “Terminator” movies imagined a future in which an artificial intelligence called Skynet took over the world and nearly obliterated the human race. When a man named John Connor took back the planet, Skynet sent robot assassins back in time to kill his mother before he could be born, and when that failed, to kill him as a teenager, before he could become a soldier.

The Terminator” and “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” spawned three sequels and

Jeph Loeb to Exit as Head of Marvel Television
Jeph Loeb will exit as head of Marvel Television, an individual with knowledge confirmed to TheWrap. This follows the division’s move under Marvel Studios and its chief, Kevin Feige, who was named chief creative officer for Marvel last Tuesday.

Loeb, whose exit has been in the works for some time, will leave in the coming weeks, the individual said. Marvel declined to comment.

Feige, the architect of the hugely-popular Marvel Cinematic Universe, was put in charge of content creation across all of Marvel’s mediums last week, including publishing and animation. In addition to Marvel TV, Marvel Family Entertainment is also moving under Feige and Marvel Studios, which is under Disney co-chairmen Alan Horn and Alan Bergman.

Adrian Rosales on The Young & The Restless — Everything You Need to Know

That's actor Jay Montalvo playing Lola's father, Adrian Rosales, on The Young & The Restless. He made his debut in the Aug. 16 episode when he crashed his baby girl's wedding ceremony.

Kevin Feige Named Marvel Chief Creative Officer in Addition to Marvel Studios President
Kevin Feige is one of the busiest guys in Hollywood, and his position at Marvel just doubled. Not only is he still the sitting president of Marvel Studios, he has just been named Marvel's Chief Creative Officer. This means he will be the overall creative director of all Marvel storytelling across all mediums.

Kevin Feige will now be overseeing not just the movies in Disney's McU, but also the storytelling on the publishing side of things including the iconic comic books, all of the upcoming TV shows on Disney+ and on other networks including ABC and Hulu, and any animated projects that are in the works.

Marvel Television and Marvel Family Entertainment are now moving under the Marvel Studios Banner. Kevin Feige will still be reporting directly to Walt Disney Studios co-chairman and chief creative officer Alan Horn and co-chairman Alan Bergman on any projects that Marvel Studios wants to move forward with.

Marvel TV Officially Dead As Kevin Feige’s Named Chief Creative Officer

There are plenty of powerful superheroes in the McU, but perhaps none more so than the man who makes all of the decisions off the screen.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has just been promoted to Chief Creative Officer, overseeing basically everything pertaining to the company. Instead of just heading up the House of Ideas’ live-action movies, he’ll now be in charge of television, film, comic books and more. This unfortunately spells the end of Marvel Television as we know it.

The relatively new division of the massive Disney conglomerate has been failing to capture the success of its extremely successful cinematic counterpart for a while now. Shows like Legion, The Gifted, Agent Carter, Iron Fist and Inhumans weren’t able to attract enough viewers to justify lengthy runs and even highly-anticipated series like Luke Cage, The Punisher and Jessica Jones ended much sooner than fans expected.

Now Feige,

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Leo Fitz - 5 Things The Comics Changed (& 5 Things They Kept The Same)

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. has a healthy mix of characters originally created for the screen and characters adapted from comics.

Though Skye appeared to be an original screen character, she was actually an adaptation of Marvel comics’ Daisy Johnson.

Box Office: ‘Abominable’ Climbs to No. 1 With $20.8 Million, ‘Judy’ Hits High Note

  • Variety
“Abominable” towered over the box office this weekend as Universal and DreamWorks’ animated adventure debuted to $20.85 million in North America and $29.7 million worldwide.

The PG movie benefitted as one of the few offerings at multiplexes catering to family crowds and marked the best opening of the year for an original animated film. It also joins Universal’s “Us” and “Good Boys” as the only original titles in 2019 to launch at No. 1 on domestic box office charts.

“We saw a great opportunity for not just an opening weekend, but a strong corridor going forward,” said Jim Orr, Universal’s president of domestic distribution. “With this particular weekend, kids have been back in school for some time and routines have settled down.”

Marvel’s TV Division May Very Well Be Finished

As I begin typing this story, I’m immediately reminded of the importance of reading entire articles, and not just the headlines. Mark my words: social media links for this will be flamed with comments reminding us of how the Disney Plus shows are on the way, but those aren’t exactly what we’re here to to discuss.

To be clear, we’re talking about the TV division at Marvel that’s brought us shows such as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter and Legion, not to mention popular Netflix series like Daredevil, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Marvel Studios, who produces the movies, is handling the Disney Plus offerings like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, etc. These two houses have historically not gotten along, thereby serving as the jumping point for today’s news.

‘Abominable’ Film Review: Familiarity Doesn’t Stop the Fun in This Sweet Animated Tale
Animation can be a tough venture for filmmakers: The target audience tends to be young children, who simultaneously have a limited attention span while still demanding entertainment at every corner. But then if the story is too juvenile or too preachy, or if the animation itself isn’t eye-catching, then you lose the parents, the all-important keepers of the wallet. And even when an animated film becomes an exquisite piece of cinema, their audiences aren’t necessarily going to run out and buy a stuffed yeti plush afterward.

Writer-director Jill Culton (“Open Season”) understands this mix of priorities, and her latest film “Abominable” falls somewhere in the middle of it all, with a story that’s sweet but formulaic, jokes that are juvenile but not annoying, and the use of gorgeous colors and textures. Nothing here truly changes animation, and yet, you can’t help but walk out of the

Ghost Rider’s Cancellation Shows That Marvel Television Is Doomed

The inter-company rivalry between Marvel Studios and Marvel Television continues to fascinate me. Now, with news circulating that Marvel Television won’t be proceeding with their Gabriel Luna-starring Ghost Rider show, insiders are chalking it up to yet another casualty of behind-the-scenes drama between the two Marvel limbs. Theoretically, the two companies should work in harmony, with the idea being that Marvel Studios focuses on big screen McU adventures, while Television spearheads McU TV like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the now-cancelled Netflix shows.

What eventually transpired though were series about Marvel superheroes that were nominally set in the same universe as the movies, and which occasionally made a vague reference to the Battle of New York, but were for the most part entirely separate. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, the Punisher and Iron Fist never stood a chance of making it into any big screen movie, and their isolation
