When you hear the words “Bad Robot,” you think of Cloverfield. You think of Lost. You think of J.J. Abrams. What you don’t think of is a hard-R rated World War II movie with zombies. But if director Julius Avery has his way, that’ll all change very soon.
Getting cast in Star Wars is a once in a lifetime experience. Which provides the opportunity for a once in a lifetime over-the-top reaction.
A good story of success and opportunity is a lot of fun. When that story is an immensely charming cartoon, it’s even better.
Improvisation is responsible for some important moments in Star Wars history—Han’s famous “I know”, for instance—but it’s not considered the norm. According to Oscar Isaac, that might be changing.
Sydney Bristow is back from her time in deep cover. Maybe.
Overlord is not what you’re expecting. Trailers and early buzz have pumped it up as a “Nazi zombie” film which, while true, doesn’t quite do it justice. Actually, Overlord is first and foremost a fairly typical, behind enemy lines war film about a group of soldiers who need to complete a mission. It just so happens…
The Star Wars movies under Disney’s purview have ranged from excellent expansions to the franchise to perfectly fine—opinions may vary of course, but there hasn’t really been a generally poorly-received one. There has been quite a lot of them though, with even more on the way. But Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger says…
Castle Rock just dropped its season finale, “Romans.” Did we get an explanation for every aspect of the Hulu show’s multi-layered, Stephen King-inspired mystery? Nope. We got something even better: an ending that revealed most, but not all, and somehow felt satisfying while also being completely bleak.
Castle Rock’s season finale is next week. But if you thought you had an idea of where the Stephen King-inspired mystery series was heading, this week’s episode, “Henry Deaver,” will make you rethink everything. Or, it’ll confirm all the sneaking suspicions you’ve had all along. Or maybe...both.
From the Shire to a galaxy far, far away. The Lord of the Rings actor Dominic Monaghan is heading to Star Wars: Episode IX—reuniting with director J.J. Abrams, who he worked with on the ABC series Lost.
Castle Rock has thus far mostly followed the story of Henry Deaver, a man forced to confront a past he neither understands nor fully remembers when he returns to his Maine hometown. “The Queen,” the show’s most daring episode yet, shifts the show’s focus to another character: Henry’s mother, Ruth.
It’s a well known fact at this point that Evangeline Lilly considered quitting acting after her tenure on the ABC scifi drama Lost, only deciding not to quit after her experience on Peter Jackson’s Hobbit films.
The Cloverfield universe might have hit a major snag with the latest film, Cloverfield: Paradox, but a new fan film is (unofficially) continuing the saga in a way that makes me want to give J.J. Abrams a call and tell him: “Hey, J.J! It’s your cousin, Marvin Abrams. You know that new film you’ve been looking for? Well…
Are you ready for another year of wild, scurrilous Star Wars speculation? Well, even if you’re not, you’re gonna get it anyway. Episode IX has just begun filming, and returning director J.J. Abrams has already started dropping sneaky glimpses.
I didn’t grow up with Stephen King. Apart from checking out the TV miniseries The Stand, and my mom once seeing him at a casino, King and his work haven’t been a part of my life. Having barely visited his stuff, I was curious whether Hulu’s Castle Rock—a series that dwells within King’s stories, intertwining his …
Star Wars fans collectively wiped tears from their eyes last week after learning that Carrie Fisher would indeed appear in J.J. Abrams’ Episode IX. Mark Hamill and Fisher’s family have weighed in on the news...and if you’ll excuse me, I may have something in my eye again.
Disney has revealed the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX, which will see the directorial return of J.J. Abrams. Among the cast are the expected stars, like Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac. But it looks like Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) will be back and we’ll even see the return of the late Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa. It…
So far, the marketing for Castle Rock—the J.J. Abrams-produced Hulu show that’s set in Stephen King’s sinister vision of small-town Maine—has been appropriately eerie and deliberately mysterious. The first episode had its world premiere at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, and all we can say is: more, please.
We’ve been hearing for ages about Overlord, Bad Robot’s latest J.J. Abrams-connected movie about zombie-like creatures at the height of World War II, but now we finally have a look at its scare-filled take on what is already one of the deadliest conflicts in human history.
Welcome to Castle Rock, a town embroiled in mystery, balloons and long stares. The latest trailer for Hulu’s Stephen King saga adds to the mystery and hypes Bill Skarsgård’s character, but continues to leave the plot on the cutting room floor. What exactly is going on here?
