Say “pirate movie” today and the immediate association is the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Some of those films are terrible, but they all made tons of money. Not so long ago, though, a pirate movie went down in history as one of the biggest flops of all time: Cutthroat Island. How bad is it really, though?
We recently shared our review of Freaks, the heartfelt tale of a father trying to protect his superpowered daughter. The movie picked up a distributor soon after its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, which means it’ll be in theaters eventually. In the meantime, though—doesn’t that title sound kind…
Yes, you read that right, there’s another RoboCop movie coming.
When I was a kid, I had a recurring nightmare in which I was being chased by a group of gigantic kangaroos hellbent on murdering me. For years, I couldn’t understand where the dreams came from—until recently, when I offhandedly mentioned them to my boyfriend.
The post-apocalypse tends to suck. After all, it is about the sudden and often disastrous decline of everything civilization currently is. But what if you suddenly found yourself having to ride out the end of the world with people you’d already started to drift apart from before everything went to hell?
They’re creepy, sure. Perhaps even kooky, too. Definitely mysterious and spooky. But whether or not the stars of MGM’s reboot of The Addams Family are altogether ooky remains to be seen. The cast has just been rounded out and includes Mad Max: Fury Road’s Charlize Theron.
After years of waiting for fresh content, the Stargate fandom has finally been able to watch MGM’s new 10-episode prequel web series, Stargate Origins, in its entirety on its streaming platform. The show, clocking in at just around two hours, was definitely cute, and that it both starred and was directed by women was…
Back in 1994, few could have predicted what Stargate would become. The original film was a hit but what happened after is damn near unprecedented. Not a theatrical sequel, no, but several popular television series and a rabid fandom that far overshadowed the people who saw the original movie in theaters.
The Stargate franchise is… intimidating. There are three movies, three TV series (two of them exceedingly long-running), an animated series, and tonight, a new web series begins, titled Stargate: Origins. There’s so much Stargate that even if you wanted to check out its epic saga of soldiers, interstellar travel, and…
Oh, you didn’t think there was going to be a Stargate series without an actual Stargate, did you?
We already had a very vague teaser, but here’s our first real look at the next chapter in the Stargate franchise—one that looks to the franchise’s past with an exploration of humanity’s first discovery of the alien portals.
Everyone’s favorite creepy, kooky next-door neighbors, The Addams Family, are getting animated once again.
Unnamed sources are telling The Hollywood Reporter that the fight for distribution rights to the James Bond films just got two new contenders: Apple and Amazon. Up until now Warner Bros. have been in the lead with the best bid, but let’s be honest. Apple and Amazon have deeper pockets.
Today, Eon Productions and MGM sent out a four-sentence press release announcing that the next James Bond movie will hit UK theaters on November 8th, 2019. That’s it. There was literally nothing else. That’s weird... but it’s also telling.
MGM’s mysterious Comic-Con announcement about the future of the Stargate franchise had fans eager to see if there would be news of a new TV show, or an update on the attempt to bring the franchise back to film. Instead, fans got something they probably never expected: a prequel made up of a series of web shorts.
While History of the World Part I might be the most obvious Mel Brooks movie to get a sequel (of course, there being only one of those is part of the joke), Spaceballs has aged incredibly well. Not only is science fiction huge in movies again, but the same franchises lampooned in that film are back in a big way. And…
Fairy tales are so tired right now. They can’t keep up with all the reimaginings and spinoffs and mashups and modern takes. In the realm where the Platonic manifestations of fairy tales live, they’re just begging for a break. And yet...
