Anne Hathaway Joins The Witches Remake

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 Variety is reporting that Anne Hathaway has joined the film in the role originally made famous by Anjelica Huston, as the Grand High Witch.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.

Stranger Things 3 Teaser and Premiere Date

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.

First Trailer for Jordan Peele’s Us Debuts

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.

First Trailer for James Gunn Produced Brightburn

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.”

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

psfront

After the success of last year’s It reboot, studios have been clamoring to resurrect past Stephen King franchises for modern audiences, and Pet Sematary is no different. Entertainment Weekly has given us our first look at the updated film, directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch, who are best known for the 2014 Hollywood horror-satire Starry Eyes.

The reboot stars Jason Clarke as Louis Creed, John Lithgow as Jud Crandall, and Jeté Laurence as Ellie Creed. You can hit the jump to check out all of the new images.
