The Korean supernatural horror movie The Wailing made waves last year as yet another fantastic K-horror by a talented director to make its way overseas, so its no wonder an American remake is being discussed. When the announcement was made, many rolled their eyes at the prospect, some wishing that Hollywood would just leave a good thing alone. But for those of us who are unsure about the idea, here’s some possibly good news: reports say that Ridley Scott’s production company is eyeing the rights.

When it comes to ambitious, imaginative sci-fi, Nacho Vigalondo is one of those names people tend to mention. The Spanish director known best for time-travel head scratcher Timecrimes is back with a new movie, this time about a giant monster and the woman who can control it with her mind. Kinda.
If anything, the live-action Beauty and the Beast will give us all the urge to curl up with some nice, cozy nostalgia for a few hours. With its faithful-to-the-cartoon costumes and songs, it’ll be like a leveled-up version of the classic, and today Disney has doubled-down on the nostalgia factor: Celine Dion, who recorded her own version of the title tune “Beauty and the Beast” for the original movie, is returning to the story with a new original song “How Does a Moment Last Forever.”
We know that Josh Brolin is playing the extremely big bad Thanos for Avengers: Infinity War, and we’ve seen Thanos in some short scenes before, but it looks like he’ll be getting a lot more to do in the next superhero team-up movie than sitting in a very large chair. We even saw him walking around during some preliminary motion-capture tests! We also know that the heroes traditionally get some subtle costume upgrades movie to movie, so it’ll also be exciting to see if Thanos is getting a new-ish look too.
You’d be forgiven to have not seen Amazon’s Sneaky Pete just yet, given its Amazon premiere this past Friday, original conception as a CBS show and multi-year development. Still, the new con man drama from the minds and stars of Justified is sneaking by with a second season, Bryan Cranston or no.
Hollywood has lost one of its most prolific supporting actors today, as Twin Peaks star and storied actor Miguel Ferrer has lost a battle with cancer. The recognizable star identified with everything from the original RoboCop to NCIS has passed away at age 61.
Sometimes life gets so irritating that we all just want to lose our freaking minds and go on a rampage to blow off some steam. In Netflix’s trailer for I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore, Melanie Lynskey’s Ruth gets so fed up with all the garbage that happens to her — someone neglects to remove their dog’s business from her front yard,a truck in front of her blows clouds of exhaust into the air, her house gets burgled — that she decides to take matters into her own hands.
If you smell what The Rock’s been cookin’ (i.e. if you follow him) on social media, then you know that the charismatic and insanely busy actor recently had a very good meeting over at DC about the long-awaited Shazam movie. (No, not like that make-believe ’90s movie.) Apparently, that meeting went so well that the studio has reportedly split the film into two projects — or, more likely, they realized the error in thinking they could just cast Dwayne Johnson as a super-villain in someone else’s movie.
Marvel’s The Inhumans TV series is arriving faster than we realize, and its IMAX debut will set a director to match. As production gears up for a September release, Marvel has officially set feature director Roel Reine to helm the first two big-screen episodes of the adapted property.
Yesterday we caught what looked to be a Walking Dead deviation for Rick and co., as the group met a junkyard gang on their way to “Rise Up” against Negan. Now, new photos from the 2017 premiere and beyond see the Saviors making an unwelcome return to Alexandria, while producers promise “one of the most ingenious walkers is coming up in the second half.”
