Doctor Who teases Neil Patrick Harris’ mystery new villain. Meet the humans of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts (and Pete Davidson). Plus, a look at the final episode of Titans, and behind the scenes on Secret Invasion. To me, my spoilers!
Untitled Universal Monster Thriller
THR reports Alisha Weir (Matilda: The Musical) has joined the cast of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s mysterious new monster movie at Universal studios. While plot details are still under wraps, the outlet states “the project was at one point titled Dracula’s Daughter,” and centered “on a group of kidnappers who abduct a band of young people, one of whom ends up being the titular character. Woe then betides the kidnappers.”
THR also reports Pedro Pascal has joined the cast of Weapons, Zach Cregger’s follow-up to Barbarian described as “an interrelated, multistory horror epic that tonally is in the vein of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia.”

Star Wars: Skeleton Crew
Jude Law suggested his Skeleton Crew may not always be safe for its kid heroes in a new interview with Empire.
[Younglings] need guidance, but they’re vulnerable. And so throughout, the people they meet, you question all of them. Is my character nice? Is he not? You just want them to be alright and get back home. But if you know Jon and Chris’ work, you’ll know that the kids aren’t always safe. Seeing this galaxy, this world that we’ve all grown up loving, and the jeopardy, the divides, the heroes, the villains, through the eyes of children, is brilliant.
