‘The Walking Dead’ Rebuilds in First Season 9 Teaser From Comic-Con
Before The Walking Dead shambles into Comic-Con tomorrow with a full trailer, AMC has debuted the first official teaser for Season 9. The brief sneak peek offers a look at the various communities attempting to rebuild in the wake of Negan’s terror, while Danai Gurira’s Michonne talks to Lauren Cohan’s Maggie about setting new rules for how they should treat one another. Should go over well!
James Wan Confirms ‘Annabelle 3,’ Compares It to ‘Night at the Museum’ With the Warrens
New Line took over San Diego Comic-Con last night for ScareDiego, teasing a few of the studio’s upcoming horror films — including, obviously, IT: Chapter Two. But the highly-anticipated sequel to Andy Muschietti’s horror hit wasn’t the only film on the docket: James Wan was on hand to confirm a third installment of Annabelle, based on the creepy doll from the Conjuring franchise.
If You Go See ‘Unfriended: Dark Web,’ There’s No Telling Which Ending You’ll Get
Of all the film genres, horror is typically the most likely to have alternate endings — specifically either a bummer ending or a happy-ish one. While test screenings can have an impact on which ending ultimately makes it to theaters, home releases often include both. Hostel, The Butterfly Effect and The Descent are just a few of those. (It’s interesting to note that, when given the choice, audiences usually prefer the darker ending of the two.) But in the case of Unfriended: Dark Web, the film is being released with both endings. The kicker? You have no way of knowing which ending you’ll get when you see it in theaters.
Anne Rice’s ‘Vampire Chronicles’ Series Picked Up by Hulu
After Josh Boone’s plans for a new Vampire Chronicles film adaptation (possibly starring Jared Leto) fell through, Paramount and Anne Rice decided to take the author’s beloved novel franchise to the small screen. Last year, the studio announced that it had optioned the rights to Rice’s 11-book collection for a new TV series, which has been officially picked up by Hulu.
MoviePass Stock Hits Record Low, Begs to Be Put Out of Its Misery
How does MoviePass still exist at this point? The company, which offers customers the ability to see one movie per day for the too-good-to-be-true price of $9.99 per month, has rapidly morphed into a case study in mystifying capitalism. Despite its consistently declining stock value, and the fact that the company spends far more than it brings in, MoviePass continues to operate — but for how much longer?
Joss Whedon Returns to TV With New HBO Sci-fi Series ‘The Nevers’
Joss Whedon is finally returning to the small screen. HBO has officially ordered a new female-centric sci-fi series titled The Nevers from the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly. Although Whedon co-created Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series for ABC, The Nevers will be the first television series he’s created on his own in almost 10 years.
Neill Blomkamp Is Directing a New ‘RoboCop’ Movie (Yes, There’s Another One)
It’s only been four years since Sony’s attempt to reboot RoboCop with Joel Kinnaman as the cop-turned-crime-fighting-cyborg — though you’d be forgiven if you’ve already forgotten the bland remake of Paul Verhoeven’s satirical 1987 sci-fi classic. That might be an advantage for MGM, which is plotting a new RoboCop movie with District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp at the helm.
