Get to know the mysterious characters of The Fall of the House of Usher. Could a Brightburn 2 really happen? Get a look at Kiernan Shipka’s new time-travel slasher movie. Plus, what’s coming on Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon and American Horror Story: Delicate. Spoilers, away!
Deadline reports The H Collective is developing a sequel to 2019's Brightburn through a new imprint called H3 Entertainment, a company that plans to “integrate the Metaverse, Web3 and AI into a slate of films.”
During a recent interview with Collider, Shawn Levy stated he’s no longer certain a sequel to Free Guy will see the light of the day in light of Barbie’s overwhelming success.
I think it is definitely not assured. We love Free Guy and the love for Free Guy that has kind of resonated in aftershocks, if you will, in the last couple of years. That’s been thrilling to Ryan [Reynolds] and I. We are developing a sequel, but the truth is that you now have Barbie that has obviously left a mark about a character in a fictional world who comes to self-awareness. So, we’re only gonna make Free Guy 2 if it’s different than the first movie and if it’s different from other movies.
A new TV spot for The Marvels encourages you to see it in IMAX, alongside a smattering of new footage.
The daughter of the sole survivor of a masked killer’s rampage travels back in time to the night of the murders in the trailer for Totally Killer, starring Kiernan Shipka, Olivia Holt, Julie Bowen, Charlie Gillespie, Liana Liberato, Lochlyn Munro and Randall Park.
Elsewhere, Tara Reid leads a post-apocalyptic band of vampires in the trailer for Bloodthirst, co-starring Costas Mandylor, Robert LaSardo, Eileen Dietz and Sarah French.
During a recent interview with The Playlist, Ms. Marvel director Adil El Arbi confirmed a second season will depend on the success of The Marvels this November.
We’re waiting for The Marvels, so that will decide what the next step will be. So we’re very much looking forward to that. I can’t wait to see it, man. It’s great to see the trailers and to see the whole family back there and Iman Vellani doing great work, so looking forward to that.
Shawn Levy also stated the final season of Stranger Things will be “as big as any of the biggest movies” in a new interview with Total Film magazine (via Games Radar).
There’s no way to be contiguous with season 4, and not, frankly, expand scale and depth. It’s major, major, cinematic storytelling that happens to be called a TV series. Stranger Things 5 is as big as any of the biggest movies that we see.
