Muppets Haunted Mansion Trailer: Gonzo And Pepe Try To Survive The Night (And Ghost Puns)

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Halloween, that is. While the Muppets may be more commonly associated with Christmas Carols, the scare-filled festivities of Spooky Season mean that we can once again look forward to Jim Henson's puppet creations entertaining, enchanting, and distracting us from the ever-present worries of (gestures wildly) everything going on these days. Loaded with special guest stars, new original music, and -- of course -- all the Muppet characters we know and love, ...

How Lucasfilm Made ‘Star Wars: Visions’ the Most Ambitious ‘Star Wars’ Project Since ‘A New Hope’

When Masi Oka was first approached to provide a voice for “Star Wars: Visions” — Lucasfilm’s sensational new anthology series for Disney Plus that presents nine “Star Wars” shorts by seven Japanese anime studios — it did not take much to convince the actor to say yes. “Star Wars: A New Hope” was the first movie […]

Is Eternals The First Marvel Studios Movie To Receive A PG-13 Rating For ... SEX?!

Look away now and preserve your innocence, puritans! Everyone else, kindly settle in for an incoming rant. Forgive me for painting with such a broad brush, but I'd go so far as to say that blockbuster filmmaking has rarely felt more cold, sexless, and emotionally distant as it does now. I won't try to dissect all the social or political reasons for why this might be the case, but nowhere is this trend more apparent than in the most popular and consistently profitable ongoing franchise: the Marve...

House Of Secrets Series Coming To Disney+ From Harry Potter Director

Director Chris Columbus is returning to his roots: small children risking their lives on dangerous adventures. Between writing "The Goonies," launching the "Harry Potter" franchise and helming the only "Home Alone" movies that actually count, Columbus has proven himself a pretty solid bet when it comes to stories about reckless kids and unpredictable action. So his latest project, "House of Secrets," shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, especially given the this next bit of info...The show is...

James Gunn Says Mantis And Nebula Have 'Pretty Huge' Roles In Guardians Of The Galaxy 3

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...

'The Wonder Years' shines in ABC's reboot of the coming-of-age dramedy

Early '90s TV is hitting the refresh button this fall, in the case of "The Wonder Years," delivering an impressive and ambitious ABC dramedy. Coming on the heels of Disney+'s "Doogie Howser, M.D." reboot, the two shows join the earlier "One Day at a Time" in proving it's possible to nostalgically recycle titles and still produce distinctive and captivating series.

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...

Marvel Fans Picked The Best MCU Phase 2 Villain, And It's Hard To Argue Against Them

The worst villain of Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was previously picked by fans in a poll that ended up being completely wrong. There's just no way that Yellowjacket from "Ant-Man" is a worse villain than Malekith from "Thor: The Dark World." However, when Marvel fans were asked to pick the best villain from that same era of Marvel Studios movies, they actually came up with the correct answer.  And The Survey Says... For this Marvel poll, we had 624 participants in the United State...

Dear Evan Hansen Director Stephen Chbosky On Finding 'The Reality' In A Musical [Interview]

Stephen Chbosky knows a thing or two about teen angst. The author of "Perks of Being a Wallflower" adapted his acclaimed young adult novel into the delicate 2012 film starring Logan Lerman and Emma Watson, making his mark as a director with a finger on the pulse of teens dealing with such heavy issues as post-traumatic stress and depression. But on the screenwriting side of things, Chbosky has a surprising affinity for musicals. The filmmaker penned the feature adaptation of Broadway smash "Rent...

Star Wars Editor Marcia Lucas Was Furious With Sequel Series, Cried Over The Prequels

When you watch enough movies, the dirty little secret that nobody ever really wants to acknowledge starts to emerge. The vast majority of films aren't terrible or masterpieces -- they're merely okay. Some good stuff, some bad, all combining to make an unspectacular 2.5 out of 5 star film. That's just the way it is! But when it comes to some diehard fans of blockbuster franchises like, say, "Star Wars," suddenly all of that conventional wisdom goes out the window and becomes replaced with charged...
