It is the adrenaline rush the box office sorely needed after a summer that could accurately be described as “pretty bad” — the new take on Stephen King’s doorstop of a novel is the best horror opening ever, the highest single-day box office for an R-rated movie, the lowest-budgeted movie to gross over $100 million in its opening weekend, and now it’s the biggest opening for a September movie in history.
Harry Dean Stanton, accomplished actor, musician, and singer, has died at 91 years old. He starred in almost too many films to name, from Pretty in Pink to Repo Man, to Cool Hand Luke, Alien, Escape From New York, and Wild at Heart, and was beloved by fellow actors, directors, and critics alike.
From a Certain Point of View is a new Star Wars anthology book comprised of a number of short stories told from perspectives all over the galaxy far, far away, from Stormtroopers to X-wing pilots to one helmeted bounty hunter. If you’re one of those people who prefers to listen to your books, good news: the voice cast for the audiobook version of this anthology is pretty stellar.
When Rami Malek was cast as Freddie Mercury in Bryan Singer’s Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, one question was on everyone’s mind: Can he do it? Mercury was the kind of talent that comes along once a century, if that, and while Malek is no doubt a great actor, there’s a lot of pressure that comes with portraying one of the modern world’s greatest musicians. So, how is he doing it? Well, see for yourself.
Netflix’s scramble to cut some kind of deal with Disney after the company announced their own Disney-exclusive streaming service last month seems to have come to naught, as CEO Bob Iger announced that Marvel and Star Wars movies would also be among the films appearing exclusively on the new app Disney hopes to launch by 2019. Better get those Moana viewings in fast, folks.
Andres Muschietti is fast becoming a highly demanded director in Hollywod, especially after what looks like a big success with his It movie. Muschietti has signed on to direct a live-action adaptation of anime Robotech, and has said he wants to do Stephen King’s Pet Sematary next after he’s finished with It. Which might be sooner rather than later, as the director plans to start working on It 2 before touching anything else.
There’s something up with Stephen King — rather, his house, which looks to have been taken over by a certain sinister clown. It’s a little tough to notice at first, but if you look very closely, it appears the master of horror literature has put a red balloon up in one of the front windows of his gorgeous home in Bangor, Maine to celebrate the impending release of It.
In the new Star Wars trilogy, the First Order is basically the Empire Part II, complete with a number of ships and vehicles of war that are direct callbacks to what their predecessors had 80 years prior. You’d think they’d hire some new architects. Today brings news of two very cool, very scary-looking First Order vehicles: the sinister AT-M6, and the equally-sinister Dreadnought.
