‘It’ Producer Confirms R-Rating and Sequel For New Stephen King Adaptation

If you’ve read Stephen King’s It, then the idea of a film adaptation that isn’t rated R sounds preposterous — and yet, it happened before with the 1990 television miniseries (which does not hold up, by the way). For those concerned that the new adaptation from director Andres Muschietti might forgo the R rating in favor of courting a wider audience, the producer of the upcoming film has laid those worries to rest while also confirming that Warner Bros. has every intention of making a sequel.

‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ Review: Second Verse, Just as Good as the First

In 2014, a pair of veteran stunt coordinators introduced the world to John Wick, a former assassin who rages out of retirement to seek revenge on the man who killed his puppy and stole his car. With action as sharp and seemingly seamless as the impeccable suits worn by its eponymous protagonist, John Wick reinvigorated a genre bloated with CGI and dominated by implausibly acrobatic vehicles. In 2017, Keanu Reeves is back with John Wick: Chapter 2, a righteous follow-up that’s bigger and maybe not better, but just as good as its predecessor.

Paramount Kills Production on ‘Friday the 13th’ Reboot

Paramount performed a little maintenance on their calendar last night, removing both World War Z 2 and the repeatedly delayed Friday the 13th reboot from their upcoming release schedule — but that’s not all. The studio has reportedly completely shut down production on their new Friday the 13th project, which was set to begin filming in just six weeks. With no release date (again) and pre-production halted, it seems that Jason Voorhees’ revival may be delayed indefinitely.

New ‘Justice League’ Image Features More Superheroes Glaring at Things

Based on the images we’ve seen so far (and just the images), it’s fair to assume that Justice League is a movie about A. a long-haired metal-head who starts a rock cover band with a group of people in unnecessarily elaborate costumes, or B. a team of superheroes who spend their time aggressively posing and staring at things offscreen. Either way, it seems like it could be a good time.

How David Fincher and a Script Mistake Made ‘Se7en’ a Modern Classic

21 years ago, audiences were floored by David Fincher’s Se7en, the compelling psychological crime thriller which became an instant classic thanks, in part, to a particularly twisted ending. But that ending, box and all, almost didn’t happen. In a new interview, screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker reveals some interesting trivia about Fincher’s classic, which never would have achieved that status had he received the correct draft of Walker’s script.

Young Han Solo Directors Confirm Woody Harrelson for ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff

Just a couple of weeks back we learned that Woody Harrelson was in talks to join the young Han Solo movie, the next spinoff under the Star Wars Story banner. Today, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller officially confirmed the actor’s casting via Lucasfilm with a statement in which they praised Harrelson’s talents — both in front of the camera and behind a ping pong table.

Doug Jones Plays a ‘Fish Man’ and More New Details About Guillermo del Toro’s ‘The Shape of Water’

When you’re Guillermo del Toro and you’re making a new film that features a fish-like man (a merman, basically), there’s really only one guy for the job: Doug Jones. The famously prosthetic-friendly character actor has appeared in several del Toro projects, including Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth and The Strain, and recently reunited with the filmmaker for his next film, The Shape of Water — in which he’ll play the merman, of course. Though the official synopsis is intentionally somewhat vague, Jones has revealed a few details to help fill in the blanks.
