get excited about stranger things

Details on what exactly will be terrorising Hawkins, Indiana in Season Three of Stranger Things are understandably thin on the ground, but the recent trailer for the film put its 4 July setting front and centre and we’d put good money on that mall not making it through the season in one piece. There’s something bigger and deadlier coming out of the Upside Down, there are shady assassins on the way, not to mention puberty, but at least Steve looks like he’s having a great time in his sailor suit.…

You can’t beat a movie monster. Superheroes are great, fantasy kingdoms are brilliant, but there’s something special about a classic creature roaring into multiplexes. Godzilla: King Of The Monsters director Michael Dougherty clearly knows this, as he’s pitting his title character against three of the biggest kaiju in the Toho back catalogue, and we can’t wait to see the results. Along with James Wan’s Conjuringverse, with its seemingly endless supply of demons and ghouls to spin-off, the Monsterverse has been one of the more successful attempts to pull off the ‘shared universe’ thing that Marvel set the template for. Universal’s Dark Universe is undergoing a necessary retooling, with Blumhouse a sensible home for Leigh Whannell’s Invisible Man, but the big monsters are still coming out swinging with the mega-budgets (reportedly $200…

rise from the ashes

AFTER WRITING X-MEN: The Last Stand, producing X-Men: First Class and doing both on X-Men: Days Of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse, Simon Kinberg has finally found himself in the director’s chair for the franchise’s next offering, Dark Phoenix.

However, like with many superhero movies, the film’s plot will deviate slightly from the comic book arcs. “The comics have so many different…

star wars episode ix: rise of skywalker trailer breakdown

1 Welcome back We open with Rey, on a desert planet, preparing herself to take on a TIE fighter. Is she back on Jakku, or are we going all the way back to Tatooine? 2 Feel the force It seems like Rey vs TIE fighter might be a fair fight after all. This looks similar to the TIE fighter piloted by Kylo Ren in The Last Jedi, so he may well be behind the wheel. 3 Masks on Speaking of Kylo Ren, this shot indicates that his mask – which he destroyed in The Last Jedi – is being put back together. It’s fair to say he’s definitely back on the dark side. 4 #Finnpoe returns The ultimate bromance of Finn and Poe is back, after the two were separated for most of The Last Jedi. Hopefully…
