Gerald’s Game is, without a doubt, the most difficult Stephen King novel to adapt, which is why it’s taken a little while for the film version to get off the ground. But with Oculus director Mike Flanagan on board and two leads now secured, it looks like this thing might actually happen after all — and it’ll be interesting to see how Flanagan translates one of King’s most unnerving stories into a feature film.

The force is very strong with Disney and Lucasfilm’s legal department — or at least one would assume, which is why it’s probably not a good idea to infringe on their trademarked properties, especially Star Wars.

In addition to writing and directing their own films, Joel and Ethan Coen have been known to provide scripts for other directors, like Angelina Jolie (Unbroken) and Steven Spielberg (Bridge of Spies).

Ben Affleck is a man of many talents: A-list movie star, director, producer, Matt Damon’s BFF, Batman, vape enthusiast, and this week he’s an autistic accountant moonlighting as an action-hero in The Accountant. But there’s just one skill he can’t seem to master, and it’s knowing what to do with his face in movie posters. Like Adam Sandler, who makes the same face in every single poster, Affleck also has a very specific default facial expression: Blankly staring off into the distance.

Hollywood’s troubling pay gap problem doesn’t only apply to gender; it also applies to people of color.

Our biggest takeaway from Marvel’s special IMAX preview of Doctor Strange was just how impressive and immersive all those world-bending, inter-dimensional sequences are on the big screen. You really only get a small taste of how bold those scenes are in the previews, like the latest international trailer for the new film, but a pair of newly-released blacklight posters are definitely in keeping with that psychedelic, third-eye-opening bent.
