Telltale Games and Netflix have announced a new partnership that will see the narrative game studio creating a game based on the streaming service’s wildly popular supernatural series, Stranger Things. Telltale typically releases episodic titles with new characters, often expanding lore and mythos for series, so possibly expect more of the same here.
Netflix is working hard to expand the world of Stranger Things, just recently even inking a deal to create novels based in the world, as well, with the first book being about Eleven’s mother, Terry Ives.
The first trailer for Blumhouse’s Halloween revival is now online. The new film is not technically a reboot, but a sequel to John Carpenter’s first classic film, ignoring all other sequels. The story picks up 40 years after the first film, with Michael Myers making his escape from a mental hospital after a bus crash. He returns to finish Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode, but after years of preparation, she’s ready to kill the masked murderer.
Halloween hits theaters on October 19th, and should make for quite a good holiday film.
MGM has released a first look at the upcoming Addams Family animated film set to hit theaters on October 11th, 2019. In addition, they’ve also released the full voice cast, and synopsis for the film. Joining the previously announced Oscar Isaac as patriarch Gomez Addams will be Charlize Theron as Morticia, Chloë Grace Moretz as Wednesday, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley, Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester, with Bette Midler as Grandmama and Academy Award winner Allison Janney as the family’s arch nemesis Margaux Needler.
Morticia, devilishly devoted to her husband and children, is the pale glue that holds her clan together. Gomez, debonair, sinister and passionately in love with his wife, is enthusiastic about whatever dreadful scheme he’s cooked up. Wednesday is a brilliant and sinister teenage girl with long braids and dead-pan wit. Pugsley, a menacing 10 year old on over-drive, enjoys getting into any kind of dreadful mischief he can find. Mad Uncle Fester is good natured, merry and likes to create mayhem any way he can. Grandmama is smitten with her grandchildren who enjoy her cookies shaped like bats and skulls. Margaux Needler, the reality TV makeover queen, is consumed with a desire for absolute suburban, pastel perfection.
After rumors of his casting had started swirling almost a month ago, Jamie Foxx has been confirmed to play Al Simmons, aka Spawn, in the upcoming live-action adaptation directed by Todd McFarlane, and produced by Blumhouse. With a budget of $10-12 million, the film is expected to be modest and focus more on Twitch Williams, a detective searching for a ruthless killer with supernatural assistance.
McFarlane has apparently envisioned Foxx in the role for many years, and the two have both attempted to get him to play the title character, with Foxx auditioning for the role many years ago, until the production fell apart.
That Hashtag Show has revealed character breakdowns for Alec Holland, a.k.a. Swamp Thing, and Abby Arcane from the upcoming live-action adaptation streaming on the DC Universe.

The first teaser trailer for Shane Black’s upcoming The Predator is now online, giving us our first glimpse of the new cast of humans fighting a group of Yautja that includes Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Boyd Holbrook, Sterling K. Brown, and more. You can check out the official synopsis below.
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
According to That Hashtag Show, Todd McFarlane’s Spawn with Blumhouse Productions is moving along nicely, with news that Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx is being eyed for the role of Al Simmons, aka Spawn. Foxx has officially been offered the role, after he himself pursued in 2013 in an earlier reboot attempt.
If he accepts, he’ll be sharing the spotlight, as the film will supposedly follow Twitch Williams as he teams with Spawn to track down a supernatural serial killer.
Hot on the heels of the announcement of the DC Universe, it’s been revealed that James Wan will be producing a live-action Swamp Thing series for the streaming service, as well. Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica, Netflix’s Daredevil) and Gary Dauberman (It) are attached to co-write the series and act as showrunners.
The story will follow CDC researcher Abby Arcane as she returns to her home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus. There, she meets Alec Holland, who is quickly taken from her, but morphs into the elemental Swamp Thing after his resurrection.
