Halloween Ends Will Be 'Very Different In Tone' From The Other Movies

"Halloween Kills" is now in theaters and on Peacock, and "Halloween Ends" is due out next year. I'll try to avoid giving away spoilers in case you haven't seen "Halloween Kills" yet, but let's just say that movie leaves a lot of stuff up in the air for the third and supposedly final entry in this new trilogy to address. While we'll have to wait until next Halloween for "Halloween Ends," director and co-writer David Gordon Green is offering up some hints as to what we can expect from the next ent...

Halloween Kills Producer Jason Blum On Why Sequels Are Difficult [Interview]

In 2018, Blumhouse surpassed expectations with "Halloween," David Gordon Green's sequel to John Carpenter's 1978 slasher classic. Surpassing expectations wasn't anything new to Blumhouse, but the production company delivered a hit reboot that most audiences weren't expecting. Not just a hit, but more importantly, a well-liked return to the world of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers. Three years later, the horror icons return in "Halloween Kills." "Halloween" is one of the bigger Blumhouse titles. ...

Jason Blum Keeps Teasing Happy Death Day 3, Won't Confirm It

I know we're overloaded with an abundance of remakes, reboots, and sequels, and I would sure love something original for a change. However, there's one sequel I can get behind: "Happy Death Day 3." Unfortunately, it hasn't happened yet, and it's unclear if it ever will. "Happy Death 2U" ends with a set-up for a third film, but weak box office performance put any plans for that third film on indefinite hold. Which is a damn shame, because the "Happy Death Day" series is wonderful and I would love...

Blumhouse Wolfman Movie Script Still In Development With Ryan Gosling

The script for Blumhouse Pictures remake of The Wolfman starring Ryan Gosling is still in development says producer Jason Blum. The Wolfman is one of the most iconic of the Universal Monsters, having first appeared in the 1941 film starring Lon Channey Jr. In 2010, a remake starring Benenco Tel Toro in the title role opened in theaters after a very troubled production to negative reviews and was a box-office bomb. After Universal attempted to relaunch their monster's property with the critical...

Jason Blum Is As Upset As You No One Saw Upgrade, Offers Update On TV Adaptation

"Upgrade" is getting an upgrade. When the bonkers-in-Yonkers sci-fi action film, written and directed by Leigh Whannell, released in 2018, it received a pithy welcome at the box office, though critics like /Film's Matt Donato had a good time with it. Whannell moved onto his bombshell hit "The Invisible Man" in 2020, and now that the dust has settled on the (pardon the pun) universal fanfare and praise surrounding the resurrected Universal Monsters franchise-launcher, the writer-director has sign...

New Halloween Kills Clips Feature Halloween, Kills

"And on the eve before Samhain it would stir, and if the lust were powerful enough, it would rise to fulfill the curse invoked so many Samhains before. Then the people would bolt their doors. Scant good it did them, for the thing laughed at locks and bolts, and besides, there were the unwary. Always the unwary."If you squint real hard, the above prologue to Curtis Richards' "Halloween" film novelization actually spells "unlimited sequels."

Five Nights At Freddy's Movie Loses Director Chris Columbus

It's weird how waiting for the "Five Nights At Freddy's" movie has felt like an actual level of the game. You're alone (because so few of your friends care), the night stretches on (by "night" we mean years), and bad news pops up like horrifying animatronic monsters when you least expect it. Is this some sort of elaborate ARG, is there a 10-year marketing plan for this movie? Probably not, but we need some sort of hope to hold onto if we're going to keep this dream alive. We've been reporting on...

12 Awesome Sci-Fi Movies That Never Got Sequels

Many of the greatest science fiction franchises of all-time have benefitted from multiple cinematic installments that help expand their mythologies. Not every sequel to "Star Wars," "Star Trek," and "Alien" is great, but few would argue that their legacies are isolated to just one film. Occasionally, a sequel is even better than the original; recent films like "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Blade Runner 2049" surpassed expectations and became classics in their own right.But not every sci-fi series ge...
