The Church of Satan Is Not Pleased With This Week’s ‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’ Episode
While most fans were thrilled with last night’s super-sized episode, a certain group took issue with one of the numerous guest stars — specifically, a fictionalized version of Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey.
‘Aquaman’ Extended Trailer: Jason Momoa Becomes a King
YEAYUHH! The new trailer for MY MAN Aquaman is here — but it’s not just any old trailer. This super-sized five-minute extended sneak peek gives us new looks at Arthur Curry’s journey from being a son of the land and the sea (and Nicole Kidman, boom) to becoming the king of the ocean…but first, he has to bring Atlantis back to life (or something).
Former ‘Sesame Street’ Writer Confirms Bert and Ernie Are Gay, Workshop Responds With Denial
Many Sesame Street viewers have long suspected — including a few wise kiddos — that puppet odd couple Bert and Ernie are more than just friends. The prolific children’s series has never really addressed Bert and Ernie’s sexual orientation, but a former writer for Sesame Street confirms what most of us felt in our hearts all along…even if the show itself continues to issue denials.
‘Roseanne’ Spinoff ‘The Conners’ Gets Official ABC Fall Premiere Date
The cast of Roseanne will return to televisions this fall — without Roseanne Barr — in The Conners. The spinoff, which features the remaining members of the iconic sitcom family, will officially premiere on Tuesday, October 16 — almost a month after ABC debuts its other fall programming. In addition to The Conners, the network has set fall premiere dates for several other new and returning shows, including The Good Doctor and Grey’s Anatomy.
Robert De Niro in Talks for Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘Joker’
The initial reports regarding the upcoming Joker origin movie from writer / director Todd Phillips noted that the project was loosely inspired by the Martin Scorsese classic King of Comedy — so it makes sense that Scorsese himself was persuaded to executive produce Joker. According to a new report, that King of Comedy connection is getting a little more obvious, as Robert De Niro is officially in talks to join Joaquin Phoenix in the DC standalone film.
If You Go See ‘Unfriended: Dark Web,’ There’s No Telling Which Ending You’ll Get
Of all the film genres, horror is typically the most likely to have alternate endings — specifically either a bummer ending or a happy-ish one. While test screenings can have an impact on which ending ultimately makes it to theaters, home releases often include both. Hostel, The Butterfly Effect and The Descent are just a few of those. (It’s interesting to note that, when given the choice, audiences usually prefer the darker ending of the two.) But in the case of Unfriended: Dark Web, the film is being released with both endings. The kicker? You have no way of knowing which ending you’ll get when you see it in theaters.
MoviePass Stock Hits Record Low, Begs to Be Put Out of Its Misery
How does MoviePass still exist at this point? The company, which offers customers the ability to see one movie per day for the too-good-to-be-true price of $9.99 per month, has rapidly morphed into a case study in mystifying capitalism. Despite its consistently declining stock value, and the fact that the company spends far more than it brings in, MoviePass continues to operate — but for how much longer?
‘Zombieland 2’ Officially Happening With Original Cast and Filmmakers
With each passing year, the possibility of ever seeing Zombieland 2 seemed less and less likely, which makes today’s news a pleasant surprise. Director Ruben Fleischer and original screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are officially getting the band back together for the long-teased follow-up to their 2009 horror-comedy hit. No, really. It has an actual release date and everything.
Joss Whedon Returns to TV With New HBO Sci-fi Series ‘The Nevers’
Joss Whedon is finally returning to the small screen. HBO has officially ordered a new female-centric sci-fi series titled The Nevers from the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly. Although Whedon co-created Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series for ABC, The Nevers will be the first television series he’s created on his own in almost 10 years.
Neill Blomkamp Is Directing a New ‘RoboCop’ Movie (Yes, There’s Another One)
It’s only been four years since Sony’s attempt to reboot RoboCop with Joel Kinnaman as the cop-turned-crime-fighting-cyborg — though you’d be forgiven if you’ve already forgotten the bland remake of Paul Verhoeven’s satirical 1987 sci-fi classic. That might be an advantage for MGM, which is plotting a new RoboCop movie with District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp at the helm.
