Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom: Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)"Aquaman" was released in December 2018. Despite the hero being at the wrong end of many jokes over the decades, it went on to become a huge success. In no small part thanks to star Jason Momoa's likability and portrayal of Arthur Curry, as well as director James Wan's vision for it. The movie was so successful that it amazingly ...

Now Playing for The Six Weeks of Halloween

I like to try and get a feel for what’s Now Playing in theaters at some point during the Six Weeks of Halloween, but that can be more difficult than it sounds. Last year was clearly a bit of a fluke, given the whole worldwide pandemic thing and most theaters not even being open for business and all. Even in a normal year, a lot of horror movies have rather odd release schedules. There often aren’t many that are released during Halloween season. Weirdly, many big horror movies come out on the big...

Weekend Box Office: Shang-Chi Takes Number One, Will Soon Pass Black Widow

"Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" easily bested the competition at the box office in a quiet weekend for new releases at the box office. Clint Eastwood's "Cry Macho" and Gerard Butler's "Copshop" didn't stand a chance. Marvel's latest will soon pass "Black Widow" at the box office domestically. More than that, the movie continues to assert the strength of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the bankable entity in Hollywood. Let's have a closer look at the numbers. Shang-Chi With The Three...

The Craziest Effect In Malignant Was Done Practically – With A Contortionist

"Malignant," the latest horror flick from James Wan, was released last week and it rightfully generated a great deal of conversation online, largely thanks to that totally bonkers ending. As it turns out, the big reveal at the end of the movie was largely done practically with little help from CGI. This is, to put it mildly, impressive.Warning: major spoilers ahead for "Malignant." proceed with caution. Gabriel Was Real Gabriel, the half-absorbed twin of the movie's protagonist, Madison (Annabel...

The Spoiler-Filled Story Behind Malignant's Craziest Moments [Interview]

"Malignant" is the craziest mainstream release in a long time. Years, maybe. It's the kind of bonkers filmmaking usually reserved for niche genre film festival entries and long-forgotten trash masterpieces from the '80s. To see it playing in theaters, and at the top of the HBO Max streaming service, is a perverse delight. Director James Wan, on a break between directing "Aquaman" and its sequel, decided to make the kind of blank check horror movie others can only fantasize about. We probably won...

The next time you leave a franchise for dead, make sure it's really dead. The latest horror property to be exhumed for the next generation is "I Know What You Did Last Summer," a new series based on the memorable slice 'n dice slasher films of the '90s (I don't talk about the '06 one, but these cats will). Sara Goodman pens the show, and executive produces the series alongside Neal H. Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Erik Feig, Peter Guber, Michael Clear, Rob Hackett, Craig William Macneill, and Shay Hatte...

Mortal Kombat Sequels In Development, Will Hopefully Have Actual Tournament This Time

We finally have confirmation that a "Mortal Kombat" movie sequel of some kind is in development. The information is incredibly vague and raises more questions than answers. However, the good news for fans of this year's R-rated reboot is that it seems Warner Bros. does want to keep this franchise going. So, we won't be waiting another 20-plus years to see characters like Scorpion and Liu Kang getting bloody in live-action for our entertainment.Buried deep in a Variety piece about the upcoming re...

5 Horror Movies To Stream If You Loved Malignant

James Wan is back in the horror game. Carrying his "Aquaman" clout straight into the bonkers genre project that he's seemingly always longed to do, the "Insidious" director has returned to the horror game with a big swing in the form of "Malignant." In a chat with Bloody Disgusting, Wan credits a handful of Italian and horror-centric directors, calling his latest "my version of a Giallo." He applies an apt metaphor to elaborate:"The best way I describe 'Malignant' is, growing up in the late '80s...

Malignant Ending Explained: Let's Break Down That Bonkers Conclusion

James Wan, the mind behind "Saw," "Insidious," "The Conjuring" and, more recently, "Aquaman," made his glorious return to the world of horror over the weekend with "Malignant." The director hadn't made a horror movie since 2016's "The Conjuring 2," so this was no small thing. After all, it's pretty fair to say Wan may well be our most prominent modern master of horror. That being said, he did not make another friendly franchise play here. As those who have witnessed "Malignant" know, this thing ...

Malignant Review – Horror Film Delivers Classic James Wan Scares

When The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It arrived in theaters last June, it was generally unanimous that the film was okay but would have been better had horror master James Wan returned to direct the threequel. Instead of directing the new Conjuring, Wan directed Malignant, an original horror film starring Annabelle Wallis as Madison, a woman who begins to have visions of murders. Soon realizing that the murders are a terrifying reality, Madison must uncover the truth about her connection to ...

The 13 Best Movies About The Devil Ranked

The devil is terrifying. Whether viewers are persons of faith or not, there's something about the devil that cultivates a distinct, almost existential kind of fear. The name alone, uttered in shadows and whispers, is enough to inspire a perennial, frosty chill. For certain audiences, the devil is very much real. For others, the movies he stars in are so chilling and so raw in their depiction of Old Scratch that until the lights go on, whoever is watching just might find themselves believing, too...

Malignant Review: James Wan Goes Wild With His Bloody, Bonkers Return To Horror

A movie that takes big swings is always worth celebrating, and "Malignant," James Wan's out-of-control return to horror, takes some of the biggest swings you'll ever see on film. Wan hasn't helmed a horror movie since 2016, and returning to the genre has seemingly unhinged him, or at the very least made him dizzy with glee. He's a blockbuster filmmaker now, and here he uses his blockbuster skills and clout to conjure up a movie best described as "operatic."
