Netflix has revealed the first full trailer for Stranger Things 3, the long-awaited third season in the coming-of-age horror series that has become a phenomenon. The new trailer gives us our first look at plenty of new characters, the new creature, and some insane visual effects.
Stranger Things 3 stars Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, David Harbour as Chief Jim Hopper, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Noah Schnapp as Will Byers, Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Cara Buono as Karen Wheeler, Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers, Joe Keery as Steve Harrington, Dacre Montgomery as Billy, Sadie Sink as Max, Maya Thurman-Hawke as Robin, Jake Busey as Bruce, Francesca Reale as Heather, and Cary Elwes as Mayor Kline.
While feelings are mixed about the upcoming Jason Reitman directed requel, Ghostbusters, that hasn’t stopped it from moving right along. According to Variety, Carrie Coon (The Leftovers) and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) have entered final talks to star in the new film. While Reitman was hesitant to cast Wolfhard given the similarities to Stranger Things, he was reportedly “blown away” by the youngsters audition.
The report indicates that Coon and Wolfhard will play a single mother and her son, respectively, showing some pretty strong similarities to previous entries of the film franchise.
CBS All Access has shared the first official trailer for Academy Award winner Jordan Peele’s reboot of The Twilight Zone, introducing us to a few members of the massive cast of characters we’ll see throughout the anthology series. Big names such as Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), John Cho (Star Trek), Tracy Morgan (30 Rock), and more.
You can check out The Twilight Zone exclusively on CBS All Access on April 1st.
The first trailer for the upcoming reboot of Child’s Play is now online, revealing a contemporary re-imagining of the classic horror film. While in the film, the new “Smart Toy” is referred to as Buddi, he’ll clearly take on the name Chucky as it’s spoken out loud in the trailer. Despite a little naming confusion, this looks like quite the interesting modern day twist on Chucky.
Child’s Play stars Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry, Gabriel Bateman, Beatrice Kitsos, Ty Consiglio, and Carlease Burke. It hits theaters on June 21st.
The latest trailer for Stephen King’s Pet Sematary is now online, with the new footage revealing a key change to the story, with the older Ellie being the child resurrected, rather than the young Gage. In an interview withEntertainment Weekly, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura explains why they made the change.“Gage is so young, you can’t really do that much with him,” he says. “So this way, we’re able to really get underneath our affected child. We’re able to get into the psychological horror of a child [coming back] because of her age.”
Pet Sematary hits theaters on April 5th. A day that’s shaping up to be quite a day for movie releases.
CBS All Access has shared the first trailer for Jordan Peele’s upcoming reboot of the classic horror anthology series, The Twilight Zone. While the trailer gives us little in the way of footage, we get to hear Peele’s hosting voice, which is fantastic and well suited to the role. We’ll see if this newest incarnation is able to keep up with the original, but with the talent backing it, expect good things to come.
The Twilight Zone debuts on CBS All Access on April 1st.
It looks like the upcoming reboot of the classic horror franchise isn’t going to be the only place to get your Child’s Play kick. According to Deadline, SYFY has picked up the rights to develop a television series starring horror’s favorite kid’s toy. On top of that, franchise creator Don Mancini is overseeing the creation of the series.
“I’ve long wanted to bring Chucky to television and Syfy is the perfect network for us,” said Mancini. “The show will be a fresh take on the franchise, allowing us to explore Chucky’s character with a depth that is uniquely afforded by the television series format, while staying true to the original vision that has terrorized audiences for over three decades now.”
After the massive failure that was The Mummy, and Universal’s attempt at its “Dark Universe,” the studio has decided to put a stop to the shared universe attempt and “take an individualized approach to its classic monster movies.” The first step, according to Variety, is appointing Leigh Whannell (Upgrade) to the director’s chair on its upcoming adaptation of The Invisible Man.
Johnny Depp was attached to the project for the last year and a half, but is believed to no longer be in the lead role as the studio movies in a different direction. Additionally, the new films are said to be “rooted in horror, with no restrictions on budget, tone, or rating.” Good news for fans of classic monster movies.
It looks like that upcoming remake of the film based on the Roald Dahl classic, that has horrified children for years, The Witches, is moving forward. Variety is reporting that Anne Hathaway has joined the film in the role originally made famous by Anjelica Huston, as the Grand High Witch.
The update is said to be set closer to Roald Dahl’s original story, set in the “gothic south in the 1960’s.” Robert Zemeckis is writing the script with Alfonso Cuaron and Guillermo Del Toro on as producers, and Nicolas Roeg, the director of the original film, in the director’s chair. Quite an impressive team, already.

Netflix kicked off the New Year with a teaser trailer, poster, and premiere date reveal for the highly anticipated Stranger Things 3. The teaser and poster don’t reveal much about the upcoming season, outside of its Summer 1985 setting, which should give us a nice change of pace.
Stranger Things 3 will hit Netflix on July 4th, making for quite the binge-worthy addition on a national holiday here in America. You can hit the jump to check out the first poster for the upcoming season.
Jordan Peele gave the world a Christmas gift yesterday with the reveal of the first trailer for his follow-up to the award-winning Get Out, simply titled Us. The teaser gives us little in the way of story, but reveals that Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke (reuniting from Black Panther) play a family vacationing with some friends that turns into a psychological nightmare.
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, from Monkeypaw Productions, stars Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Black Panther’s Winston Duke), and their two children (Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex) for an idyllic summer getaway. Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family. After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
We’ve known for a while that Sony Pictures would be releasing a horror film, produced by James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), but details were kept quiet on the project. Now, we have an official title, cast, and even a first trailer for the upcoming twist on a classic superhero origin, Brightburn. The film is directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive) and written by Mark Gunn & Brian Gunn. Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) stars alongside David Denman (Power Rangers), Jackson A. Dunn (Shameless), Matt Jones (Home) and Meredith Hagner (Younger).
“What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.”
If you haven’t seen the film What We Do In The Shadows from director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) and starring Waititi and Jemaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords fame, it’s absolutely worth a watch. A hilariously dark comedy about an inept group of vampires in the modern world.
With its success, an American reboot was inevitable, but this time the original team is still involved as the series takes place in the same world, rather than acting as a reboot. Check out the video above for a first look, and hit the jump to check out a second look.
