‘Watchmen’ Actor Tim Blake Nelson Says the HBO Show is “Way Beyond” a Standard Adaptation

You may know Tim Blake Nelson as the hapless Delmar O’Donnell in the Coen Brothers’ Homeric comedy O Brother, Where Art Thou?, but the successful character actor is about to step into a totally different type of world with Damon Lindelof‘s unconventional new Watchmen TV series. In a recent interview, Nelson (who also appears as the title character […]

Dark Horse’s ‘Black Hammer’ Comic Series Being Adapted for Film and Television

There are a handful of names whose presence on the cover of a comic book ensure that I will pick up that issue. One of them is writer Jeff Lemire. Now Black Hammer, one of his most popular series, is being transformed into a “multi-platform, interconnected universe” spanning film and television. Black Hammer, created by […]

New Blu-ray Releases: ‘BlacKkKlansman’, ‘Christopher Robin’, ‘Blindspotting’, ‘The Meg’

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to new Blu-ray releases and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

Academy Threatens to Resurrect Terrible Most Popular Film Oscar Idea

The Academy faced a whirlwind of backlash when they announced their idea for a “Most Popular Film” Oscar – the type of award that seemed to misunderstand why people like movies at all.

Small-Screen Stream: ‘Homecoming,’ ‘Dietland,’ And More Streaming TV

(Welcome to Small-Screen Stream, a feature where we share the best television shows streaming and where you can watch them.)

We’re also — luckily — living in […]

‘Gloria Bell’ Trailer: Julianne Moore Finds Love and Lives Her Best Life

Hollywood has always had a problem with giving women leading roles once they start hitting their 40s and 50s. Obsessed with the fresh-faced, young women pouring into Los Angeles everyday, it’s one of the more shameful sides of show business. But thankfully that’s started to change a bit with great roles for women of all […]

Don’t Believe the Bad Takes: 2018 Has Been a Great Year For Horror Movies

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: don’t believe the hype – 2018 did not kill the horror genre. And why do we have to have this conversation every year?) Blame a man’s foolhardy optimism, but part of me believed 2018 would […]

‘Bird Box’ Early Buzz: Sandra Bullock is a Bright Spot in Netflix Post-Apocalyptic Horror Film With No Vision

Netflix recently made the unprecedented decision to release three of its Oscar contender films in theaters before they hit streaming. Two of which were expected — Alfonso Cuaron’s Oscar frontrunner Roma, the Coen Brothers’ anthology Western The Ballad of Buster Scruggs — but the third was something of a question mark: Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock and directed by Danish […]

‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ Season 3 Trailer Announces the End

A Series of Unfortunate Events is returning to Netflix for a final season. The series, adapted from Lemony Snicket‘s marvelously macabre books, will once again pit the Baudelaire orphans against the overly theatrical Count Olaf.
