It is the adrenaline rush the box office sorely needed after a summer that could accurately be described as “pretty bad” — the new take on Stephen King’s doorstop of a novel is the best horror opening ever, the highest single-day box office for an R-rated movie, the lowest-budgeted movie to gross over $100 million in its opening weekend, and now it’s the biggest opening for a September movie in history.
Harry Dean Stanton, accomplished actor, musician, and singer, has died at 91 years old. He starred in almost too many films to name, from Pretty in Pink to Repo Man, to Cool Hand Luke, Alien, Escape From New York, and Wild at Heart, and was beloved by fellow actors, directors, and critics alike.
From a Certain Point of View is a new Star Wars anthology book comprised of a number of short stories told from perspectives all over the galaxy far, far away, from Stormtroopers to X-wing pilots to one helmeted bounty hunter. If you’re one of those people who prefers to listen to your books, good news: the voice cast for the audiobook version of this anthology is pretty stellar.
John Wick is back again… again. Keanu Reeves’ immortal hitman will come out of retirement once more in John Wick: Chapter Three, which Lionsgate has officially announced will hit theaters May 17, 2019.
Bryan Singer’s Queen biopic looks like it’ll get a little meta. Word on the street is that Mike Myers, who, along with Dana Carvey, immortalized the car sing-along to “Bohemian Rhapsody” in Wayne’s World, is in talks for a role in Singer’s movie about the band, which stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from movies, it’s not to experiment with death. But that won’t stop one group of young folks from engaging in their fun new pastime of competitive dying. Flatliners, a remake of Joel Schumacher’s 1990 cult film, posits that dying for a couple of minutes gives these kids a new appreciation for the lives they have, until their deaths start to catch up with them. Never play with forces you can’t fully control.
Vince Vaughn has come a long way from crashing weddings as a strictly comedic actor. He’s made one of my favorite transitions in film acting, from “Oh, he’s hilarious” to “Oh, he’s actually really good.” While his season of True Detective wasn’t exactly lauded, Vaughn has proved his talent for drama, and his new film Brawl in Cell Block 99 certainly looks like it’ll prove that even further. Also, he just looks terrifying.
It’s almost the end of the month, which means it’s time to check out what kind of new stuff is coming to your favorite streaming services in September. Amazon Prime has some good ones this month, including a ton of classics and a new new films that you should definitely check out if you missed them in the theater.
Richard Stanley’s The Island of Dr. Moreau — which can hardly be called “Richard Stanley’s The Island of Dr. Moreau,” as he was fired from production only three days after it started — joined the storied halls of notoriously troubled film production disasters shortly after its release, and was even the subject of a documentary, David Gregory’s Lost Souls, that attempted to explain how the movie went so wrong. Luckily for Stanley, his long-in-development passion project might be resurrected again, twenty years after the first try.
Production on Godzilla: King of the Monsters is currently underway, and this morning director Michael Dougherty sent a message to fans of the franchise: be on the lookout for Easter eggs. He tweeted out a photo of a prop that’s a major callback to the Godzilla film that started it all.
It’s a big deal when you pass a follower milestone on social media. You feel like, finally, you’re being HEARD, you’re being SEEN, and, naturally, it warrants some kind of celebratory post to commemorate the day. But not all of us can celebrate with Chewbacca, the Chewbacca, by our side. Fortunately for Emilia Clarke, she can.
Hollywood has been itching to do something with The Twilight Zone for quite a while now, but nothing seems to be sticking. Today brings news that Warner Bros. has officially hired on another screenwriter to pen the script: Christine Lavaf, of Fringe, Falling Skies, and Warner Bros. MonsterVerse fame.
