‘Tenet’ trailer hints to a very cool plot!
Christopher Nolan’s ostensibly plot-less “Tenet” (a point to marketing there!) is due to open theatrically July 17. If all goes to plan, the Robert Pattinson-starrer will be one of the first new films released after the Coronavirus pandemic.
Warner Bros released a new trailer today which gives us a better idea – well, kinda – as to what “Tenet” is about.
John David Washington is the new Protagonist in Christopher Nolan’s original sci-fi action spectacle “Tenet.”
Armed with only one word – Tenet – and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.
Not time travel. Inversion.
Jamie Lee Curtis directing a horror movie for Blumhouse!
Jamie Lee Curtis has inked a first look deal with Blumhouse Pictures.
After collaborating on two recent “Halloween” entries, Curtis and her Comet Pictures banner has signed a three-year deal with Jason Blum to develop film and television projects- the first of which will be an eco-horror titled “Mother Nature”.
The pic, which fixes on climate change, was penned by the actress and Russell Goldman, who also has been appointed as head of development for film and television at Comet Pictures.
Curtis will also direct.
“I’m 61, and my motto now is: ‘If not now, when? If not me, who?’ I’m excited to have a creative home to explore my own ideas and others. Jason and his team have made me feel welcome. Comet is ready to bring these stories to screen life,” Curtis said Tuesday in a statement.
Added Blum: “Jamie is a force of nature and was a real partner on Halloween. So it’s both an honor and incredibly apt that she’s making her first feature film as a director with Mother Nature.”
‘Game of Thrones’ duo reunite for vampire movie!
Peter Dinklage and Jason Momoa have been tapped to star as an unlikely duo in “Good Bad & Undead”, a vampire action-adventure film for Legendary. The duo also starred in “Game of Thrones” together.
Per THR, Dinklage would play Van Helsing, the last in a long line of vampire hunters, who has an uneasy partnership with a vampire (Momoa), who has taken a vow never to kill again. Together, they run a scam from town to town, where Van Helsing pretends to vanquish the vampire for money. But when a massive bounty is put on the vampire’s head, everything in this dangerous world full of monsters and magic is now after them.
Max Barbakow is set to direct the film, which has been described as “Midnight Run” in a Bram Stoker world.
It’s official : The ‘Snyder Cut’ of ‘Justice League’ is coming!
It’s been talked about for 3 years, the elusive “Snyder Cut” of 2017’s “Justice League” – and now the version will see the light of day, with Zach Snyder’s “Justice League” coming to HBO Max.
Director Zack Snyder announced the news on a live Q&A Wednesday, following a virtual screening of his Henry Cavill-led Superman film “Man of Steel.”
As we know, Snyder completed most of “Justice League” in 2016 before stepping away from production due to a family tragedy. Joss Whedon then took over, and the sub-par result and poor reviews started the never-ending discussion that Snyder’s direction would have been better. Hence, the “Snyder Cut” demands.
Keep an eye out for further updates on when the “Snyder Cut” of “Justice League” will drop on HBO Max!

CW gonna need a new ‘Batwoman’
After one season on the CW, Ruby Rose has exited the drama series “Batwoman”. The show has already been renewed for a second season, so the role will therefore be recast.
Rose said in a statement:
“I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season. This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles.”
In a joint statement, Berlanti Prods. and WBTV said:
“Warner Bros. Television, The CW and Berlanti Productions thank Ruby for her contributions to the success of our first season and wish her all the best. The studio and network are firmly committed to Batwoman’s second season and long-term future, and we — along with the show’s talented creative team — look forward to sharing its new direction, including the casting of a new lead actress and member of the LGBTQ community, in the coming months.”
With no comment direct to why the actress left the role, we can only speculate.
Production isn’t set to commence again until January, so there’s plenty of time for recasting.
David Arquette to reprise ‘Dewey’ for ‘Scream 5’
Best news of the day right here.
Seems this “Scream” reboot isn’t a shoddy MTV-style reshaping after all – and I suppose the first indication that it was never going to be was the inclusion of “Ready or Not” filmmakers Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett to the call sheet.
But color me surprised to hear that the film isn’t so much a restart as it is the fourth sequel in the original series of films – just re-energized with some Trump, i-tech and ‘tardy sequel’ gags, no doubt And if their previous horror outing is anything to go by, Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett will have that laughs to horror ratio balanced perfectly.
We heard a few days back that Neve Campbell has been contacted about reprising her role as Sidney Prescott in the film, which is set up at Spyglass (The Weinsteins’, of course, produced the previous films under their Dimension banner).
Now, word that David Arquette has officially signed on to reprise his role as Deputy “Dewey” Riley in the film.
”I am thrilled to be playing Dewey again and to reunite with my ‘Scream’ family, old and new,” Arquette said in a statement released to Variety. “‘Scream’ has been such a big part of my life, and for both the fans and myself, I look forward to honoring Wes Craven’s legacy.”
Arquette’s inclusion, and Campbell being contacted, suggest that several other original cast members could also be included.
No doubt that was one thing Kevin Williamson, who wrote the original ’90s classic, insisted on – linkage to the Wes Craven quadrilogy.
“I’m excited to reteam with David and work with Jamie, Guy and Radio Silence on the next ‘Scream,’” Williamson, who will executive produce, said. “Their take on the movie is both original, inventive and honors Wes’ legacy in a wonderful way. ‘Ready or Not’ was my favorite horror film of last year and I can’t wait to see what their amazing talents bring to the ‘Scream’ universe. I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
Filming is going to kick off in “Dawson’s Creek” country, Wilmington, N.C sometime later in the year – with the production already prepping those Corona-proof precautions.
“Hellraiser” Series Potentially Heading to HBO!
Hey there, fellow horror geeks and monsterphiles! Prometheus here with some awesome news!
As reported by Deadline, HBO is working on a potential “Hellraiser” TV series! Yup, that’s right, and Halloween director David Gordon Green is set to direct the pilot, along with several other episodes!
The series will be written by Mark Verheiden and Michael Dougherty and will be the first time Pinhead, AKA The Hell Preist, is seen on the small screen. I, for one, can not wait to see what can be done with this subject matter on HBO! Heres to hoping they don’t pull any punches!
The new HBO series will be a continuation of the well established “Hellraiser” mythos – not a reboot, and is not related to the upcoming “Hellraiser” film, which will be an actual reboot. Confusing, I know.
Do we need two different, especially nonconnected versions of “Hellraiser?” Probably not. But I say too much Pinhead is better than not enough Pinhead so, bring it on!
What do you think out there? Are you excited that the new “Hellraiser” series will hopefully be on HBO? Comment below and let me know your thoughts!
Until next time, keep on geekin’ on, my friends!
‘Scary Stories’ director returns to helm sequel
André Øvredal will return to direct a sequel to Paramount and eOne’s “Scary Stories to Tell int he Dark”, according to Bloody Disgusting.
The original horror release, which chalked up a sumly $100 million worldwide, was released to both decent reviews and surprising box-office success in August of 2019.
Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman will again write with Guillermo Del Toro, who produced the original, reprising his role on the new film.
“Venom 2” Pushed Back – Titled “Let There Be Carnage”
Hey there, fellow horror geeks and monsterphiles! Prometheus here, and it looks like “Venom 2” is our next coronavirus victim.
I reported recently how “Venom 2” was one of the only major films on Sony’s 2020 slate that hasn’t been pushed back. Well, it looks like I’ll be eating those words as Sony is now reporting “Venom 2” will be moved from October 2nd, 2020, to June 25th, 2021. This takes “The Batman’s” old spot, moving that film to October 1st, 2021.
This makes the wait to see Woody Harrelson’s Carnage on the big screen well over a year. Fourteen long, Carnageless months… to be exact.
Sad news indeed, but in these unprecedented times, I can’t say it was unexpected. On a lighter note, the film did receive an official title! “Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage.” How bad ass is that? Here’s to hoping we can get back to normal sooner, rather than later. (If ever…) Tom Hardy, of course, will be reprising his role as Venom.
Until next time, keep on geekin’ on, my friends!
‘Halloween Kills’ co-writer has seen rough cut, offers verdict
In an enlightening yak at Movieweb, “Halloween Kills” co-writer Scott Teems promises horror boffins a sequel that’s bigger and badder than the 2018 film, which reintroduced audiences to the long-suffering but deadly Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis).
“I really can’t say anything about it, but I am really excited about it. I saw a rough cut of it a few weeks ago, and I’m a little biased, but my gut says that people that like the last one will be very excited about this one,” Teems said. “It’s like the first one on steroids, I guess.”
The film, still slated to release just before October this year, was penned by Teems, Danny McBride and David Gordon Green.
Curtis reprises Strode with Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Robert Longstreet, Charles Cyphers and Anthony Michael Hall also starring.
