Who needs Hamlet when you've got Nebula? Karen Gillan's blue cyborg space assassin may have 12 soliloquies in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3," if James Gunn's official verified Twitter account is to be believed.That's likely a joke on Gunn's part. However, he recently replied to a retweeted ComicBook.com article that said a reading of his "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" script left Gillan and her co-star, Pom Klementieff — who plays Mantis — in "floods of tears." He said, "I hope it's not beca...

Netflix has one of those aspects all wrapped up and taken care of, obviously, but the streamer hasn't quite managed to find its niche regarding properties under its ownership that could naturally expand to multiple platforms, mediums, and -- most importantly for Netflix -- profit streams.Well, that...

Netflix didn't think Roku could succeed. Now the streaming underdog is hoping its original content can take on Disney, HBO and more.

Roku founder and CEO Anthony Wood in 2014. Marcio Jose Sanchez/AP Roku hasn't always owned content that it could market to viewers.

For screenwriter Matt Harris, it's the conclusion to a long and winding road. Snapping the tape at the end of a marathon.

Midnight Mass Creator Mike Flanagan Warns Haunting Fans Not To Look For Hidden Ghosts

The upcoming Netflix miniseries "Midnight Mass" comes from Mike Flanagan, the terrifying mind that gifted us "The Haunting of Hill House" and "The Haunting of Bly Manor." Fans of the Haunting anthology series are likely anticipating hidden ghosts in Flanagan's latest, as the series infamously hid its scares in the background, waiting for viewers to catch them in the corner of their eye. But Flanagan's mind contains multitudes — not every scare is the same. For that reason, he's made a point of w...

Kathryn Hahn Has Been Cast As Joan Rivers In Showtime's The Comeback Girl

Comedy legend Joan Rivers lived a life that constantly defied expectations and traditions, resulting in her ceiling-smashing rise as a prominent and successful woman in a business that hardly seemed willing to give her time or space. In that light, it's always been of the utmost importance that any fictionalized retelling of Rivers' life would only be attempted with an actor who can similarly rise to the occasion and embody an icon who refused to be easily defined. So, who else but "WandaVision"...

How Star Wars: Visions Embraces And Reinvents The Franchise's Long-Held Values [Interview]

When "Star Wars: A New Hope" released in 1977, audiences were blown away by the original adventure tale. And it is original, in as much as any story idea is. But the American space opera has always had the cinema of Akira Kurosawa coursing through its veins. In crafting his epic, George Lucas leaned heavily on Kurosawa's 1958 samurai picture "The Hidden Fortress," down to mimicked lensing and particular shots. Now, decades, several sequels, three prequels, and a ton of spinoffs and merchandising...
