With Harvey Weinstein’s extensive history of sexual harassment and assault recently exposed, more women have come forward with new allegations of abuse. As the number of Weinstein’s accusers continues to grow, the film distribution company he co-founded with his brother Bob is reportedly negotiating a possible sale. The Weinstein Company has nine upcoming films on its slate, including The Current War; over the weekend, the potential awards contender had its release date pushed back from this fall to an undetermined date in 2018. But that’s not the only film that could be affected by the growing allegations against the company’s former executive.
When the 13th falls on a Friday in October, it makes the season extra spooky. To celebrate the occasion, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have released a cover of John Carpenter’s iconic Halloween theme. The duo behind scores for films like The Social Network and Gone Girl took a crack at recreating Michael Myers’ eerie theme song, and my dudes, the results totally shred — but like, in a creepy-cool way.
Just yesterday, Universal pushed the release date for Fast and Furious 9 (or whatever they end up calling this one) back a whole year from 2019 to 2020. The move led many to suspect it might have something to do with the upcoming spinoff, which focuses on Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs and was announced in the wake of some highly-publicized drama between Johnson and co-star Vin Diesel on the set of Fate of the Furious. Fellow #Family member Tyrese Gibson has been pretty vocal about the whole thing on social media, going as far as to beg Johnson to reconsider his spinoff plans. But following the Fast 9 release date change, Gibson has shifted from begging to downright dragging.
What happens when you take the classic “boy has a crush on his hot babysitter” trope, add some ritual human sacrifice, a bunch of blood and gore, and a dose of humor? You get The Babysitter. The first trailer for the new film from McG (who hasn’t directed a feature since 2014’s forgettable 3 Days to Kill) looks like his most entertaining project in ages, and it’s coming to Netflix next week.
IT is on track to best The Exorcist as the top-grossing horror film of all time, making it safe to assume the latest adaptation of the Stephen King classic will be just as much of a hit when it arrives on Blu-ray. In addition to the longer director’s cut recently confirmed by Andres Muschietti, the home release of IT will likely also include some deleted or alternate scenes. And according to one of the film’s young stars, we might know what at least one of those scenes could be.
Here’s a surprising bit of news for your Friday: Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to the Halloween franchise to reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode in David Gordon Green’s new sequel. As Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum promised earlier this week, that film – simply titled Halloween — will arrive in 2018. If it doesn’t meet that deadline, Blum says you can kill him. (But, you know, don’t do that.)
Back in March it was reported that Warner Bros. was eyeing Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn to helm the sequel to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. Although not officially confirmed, Vaughn seemed like a good, sensible choice; the director who (along with screenwriter Jane Goldman) revitalized the X-Men franchise with First Class could probably steer Henry Cavill’s Superman in the right direction. And that might be the case, as Vaughn says he has indeed had talks with Warner Bros. about helming Man of Steel 2.
And in other, totally unsurprising Star Wars: Episode IX news… Following this morning’s announcement that J.J. Abrams is returning to direct (and co-write) the trilogy finale comes word that the release date has been pushed back seven months from May 24, 2019 to December 20. Meanwhile, despite a change in directors and Ron Howard’s ongoing reshoots, the Han Solo spinoff weirdly remains the one Star Wars property that won’t be released in December.
Can we put a moratorium on trailers using the Talking Heads’ “Once in a Lifetime”? Now that we’ve gotten that bit of unofficial business out of the way, here’s the first full official trailer for Downsizing, the new film from Alexander Payne (Nebraska, The Descendants). We’ll have our review from the Toronto Film Festival later on, but until then, you can sneak a peek at one of the more puzzling films to premiere at this year’s fest.
While a handful of cameos in The Last Jedi remain rumored, director Rian Johnson has confirmed at least one actor to look (or listen) out for in the upcoming Star Wars sequel. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who appeared in Johnson’s three previous films, will also appear in The Last Jedi. News of the actor’s cameo comes not long after John Boyega (jokingly?) confirmed three others, including Tom Hardy and a pair of particularly notable princes.
Although Rocket Raccoon’s origins have been discussed and hinted at in both Guardians of the Galaxy movies, we still don’t know too much about his past — and given what we do know, that seems okay. It’s not as if fans need a Marvel movie with an entire sequence devoted to the torturous circumstances that led to Rocket’s creation. This isn’t the DCEU, after all. But according to James Gunn, that’s about to change.
The latest adaptation of IT hits theaters this weekend, bringing Stephen King’s horror epic back to frightening (and weirdly fun) life. But director Andy Muschietti and screenwriter Gary Dauberman have only given audiences half of the story, which takes place in the ’80s and follows a group of misfit tweens — self-described as the Losers Club — as they confront the evil entity that’s been killing kids in their town. The second half follows the Losers almost 30 years later, when they return home to destroy that evil once and for all. Before casting begins for the sequel, which won’t arrive until 2019, we came up with some ideas of our own.
