Thor: Ragnarok is already, unapologetically, a Taika Waititi movie. It’s off-the-wall, hilarious, bright, and wonderful. There couldn’t possibly be a way to make it more Taika Waititi, could there? Yes. Yes, there could.
The third Cloverfield movie, The Cloverfield Paradox, was unexpectedly released on Netflix Sunday night. It was a landmark moment for film distribution because never before has a film of this magnitude been released without reviews, notice, or promotion.

Hulu just released the first trailer for its upcoming series, Castle Rock. The show is an original tale inspired by a blend of works from the mind of Stephen King, and with this trailer, we finally have a better idea of what that means.
Director Rian Johnson kept a lot of ideas and plot elements out of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, including Luke Skywalker’s reported third lesson for Rey, Supreme Leader Snoke’s origins, and that time a porg sliced its head open with a lightsaber.

We were pretty surprised to learn that J.J. Abrams would be taking back the new Star Wars trilogy he originally started, replacing Colin Trevorrow as the director of the ninth film in the series. But why did Abrams agree to return? He said he wants to “do better” by the characters and their story.
Earlier this week, we got the ridiculous report that Quentin Tarantino not only pitched a Star Trek movie, but that J.J.

When Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released, it’s going to be a little like Rey Groundhog Day. We’ll either find out who her parents are—or we’ll find out that we have another two years of speculation on our hands.

A long time ago, David Fincher was in the running to direct The Force Awakens, a job that eventually went to JJ Abrams. As it turns out, Fincher avoided the galaxy far, far away for a good reason.
I mean, when you’re pitching yourself as being “From the Mind of Stephen King,” you damn well better have a small slice of Americana hiding some messed up stuff. But Castle Rock’s own take on a classic King trope looks as starkly gorgeous as it does creepy.
