First Look at What We Do in The Shadows Series

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.

Pull Box: October 31

NEWCOMICS

2IN1
The Fantastic Four are back together. But, before that, Ben Grimm rightfully so had some grievances with his best friend and closest confidant. The questions that Ben had for Reed throughout this entire issue were all valid, but it still seems wrong to me that, at the end of it all, Reed left them behind to try make Victor Von Doom, of all people, a better person. I hope that Reed has learned a lesson through all of this… that the Fantastic Four are truly stronger together. Not just as a team, but as characters.
SF
I honestly had no idea what to expect from this book, but it turned out to be yet another fantastic collection of short Batman stories. Always a delight to read, they touch upon many of the failures of Batman, and really bring him back to being a normal person in a suit… albeit an extremely talented and intelligent normal person. This was definitely worth the read for any fan of Batman.
WH
This was one hell of a fantastic event, that worked perfect for Halloween and setting up Wonder Woman as more of a magical force in the Justice League than before. Not only did it deepen her understanding of magic, but it also set up two major conflicts for the awesome team, with Circe manipulating them the entire time, and the Otherkind now being unleashed upon Olympus. Both of those are going to make for some awesome reading in the near future.
TER
The first Terrifics Annual, of many I hope, was pretty great. Another collection of short stories, one of them was even fairly spooky for Halloween, as well as some back story, and tragic origins. We learned the history of the Tom Strong message, and even the origin of Java, who was recently outed as Doctor Dread, making his story all the more ominous in this instance.
DE
This event is interesting, but something about Aquaman and Atlantis has always felt off to me. The stakes don’t feel as high as Witching Hour, and the villains aren’t as interesting. The most interesting thing happening here was the addition of Black Manta as a Legion of Doom representative that’s betrayed the Earth to the aquatic invaders. Maybe as it continues, it’ll get a little more interesting, but I won’t be holding my breath. Zing.

HIC
In two issues, Heroes in Crisis has managed to humanize damn near every hero and villain in the DC Universe in a way I’ve never seen before. With the exception of Booster Gold, who has continuously been made out to be a psychopath in many respects. This is just another example, and the mystery of who killed all of the heroes at Sanctuary seems to be quite a conundrum, because they’ve done so little to show the murder itself, but followed multiple possible murderers. I actually wish I could read this entire run right now, because I’m that curious.

First Trailer for Pet Sematary Debuts

Pet Sematary is often considered one of Stephen King’s most terrifying novels, and the tone and tension in this first trailer for the all new reboot certainly conveys that well enough. Starring Jason Clarke and John Lithgow, the film sees a family move to a small town, only to discover the woods hold more secrets than they could ever know.

Pet Sematary hits theaters in April 2019, and should be yet another fantastic addition to the modern reboots of Stephen King novels.

First Good Omens Trailer Debuts

NYCC

At New York Comic-Con this weekend, Amazon dropped the first trailer for their upcoming adaptation of the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett classic, Good Omens. Starring Michael Sheen (TRON: Legacy) and David Tennant (Doctor Who), the series follows a demon and an angel as they work together to stop the apocalypse.

A release date is not currently set, aside from 2019, but if this trailer is any indication, then this should be yet another fantastic adaptation of a Gaiman novel.

First Look at Pet Sematary Reboot

Filming has begun on the new Child’s Play reboot in Vancouver, and alongside that, we now have our first look at this iteration of Chucky. The doll’s origins will differ this time, with director Lars Klevberg looking to create his own version of the classic horror story, though he’s remaining tight-lipped on what those differences may be.

Additionally, we now know that Gabriel Bateman (Lights Out) will star as Andy, whose mother Karen (Aubrey Plaza) gives him the doll for his birthday. Atlanta actor Brian Tyree Henry will play Mike, the detective that gets involved after Chucky begins his killing spree. Hit the jump for a look at the full image above.

Jordan Peele Set to Host Twilight Zone Revival for CBS

After rumors of Jordan Peele (Get Out) producing the new Twilight Zone revival for CBS All Access, many of us were hoping the acclaimed actor/director would take on hosting duties, as well. Now, CBS has made it official, as Jordan Peele takes the reins from the legendary Rod Serling, the original iconic voice of the horror anthology.

Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary who not only shed light on social issues of his time, but prophesied issues of ours,” Peele said in a statement, according to TV Line. “I’m honored to carry on his legacy to a new generation of audiences as the gatekeeper of The Twilight Zone.”

Alan Wake Series in The Works

Alan

Variety is reporting that writer Peter Calloway (Legion) will helm an adaptation of Remedy’s 2010 Microsoft exclusive, Alan Wake, with backing from the game studio, Contradiction Films, and Alan Wake writer Sam Lake. The original game follows the titular character, a novelist, caught in the supernatural happenings of a mysterious town named Bright Falls.

“The story of the original game is our starting point, the seed which will grow into the bigger story we’re exploring in the show. We’ll be expanding the lore of this crazy and dark universe and diving deeper into certain aspects of it than the game ever did.

Not only that, but through the years we’ve worked on multiple game concepts and stories for Alan Wake’s world that have never seen the light of day. All of this material will function as potential source material for the show.”

First Trailer for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Drops

Netflix has revealed the first official trailer for the incredibly spooky looking Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The new series follows the comic book of the same name, as a younger Sabrina explores the horrific worlds of the supernatural, occult, and witchcraft.

Kiernan Shipka stars as Sabrina in the new series. She is joined by Lucy Davis (Wonder Woman) as Hilda Spellman, and Miranda Otto (Annabelle: Creation) as Zelda Spellman.
