Jigsaw Is A New Netflix Crime Series Where 'Viewers Are In Control'

Netflix is taking another shot at "choose-your-own-adventure" style storytelling with "Jigsaw," a heist drama starring Giancarlo Esposito ("Breaking Bad," "Better Call Saul") that promises to be "unlike any series you've seen before." The streaming service tested the waters with its 2018 interactive film "Black Mirror: Bandersnatch," which allowed viewers to make decisions in the story by selecting different on-screen options. Now, Netflix is trying something even more ambitious with the upcomin...

Muppets Haunted Mansion Special Will Feature An Appearance By The Late Ed Asner

Celebrity deaths are one of those inevitable facts of life that I nonetheless take extremely personally, particularly whenever someone I have personal attachments to is involved. It's only natural! Even without the looming specter of delays caused by the pandemic, the nature of this business means that it's not unusual for an actor or entertainer's last work to release well after their actual deaths. This can be deeply bittersweet, reminding us of what we've lost while simultaneously giving us a...

Lucasfilm's Obi-Wan Show Will Feature F9 Star Sung Kang Wielding A Lightsaber

To the surprise of nobody, Disney and Lucasfilm are keeping very quiet about the upcoming "Obi-Wan Kenobi" series. Ewan McGregor had to lie about it for years. They're not going to tell us anything. So, we're left to extrapolate what we can when some poor actors try to say nothing, while saying something, during press junkets. Luckily, Sung Kang recently spilled some tea during an interview. And it's substantial! Relatively speaking. His character, who does not yet have a name, is going to have ...

Three Jackass Stunts Were Too Dangerous To Actually Make It Into The Movies

The "Jackass" crew have put themselves through all kinds of cartoonish violence in the name of entertainment, but it turns out there were some stunts that went too far even for these gnarly dudes. While playing "Truth or Dab" with "Hot Ones" host Shaun Evans to promote the upcoming "Jackass Forever", Steve-O and Jason "Wee Man"Acuña recently shared the three bits that were deemed too violent to make it into the "Jackass" movies.  Too Hot For Jackass?

Dune Is Off To The Races At The Box Office, Let's Set Some Expectations

A certain section of film folks have been looking forward to one movie above all others over the last couple of years, and that movie is "Dune."

Jeopardy! Legend Ken Jennings Will Help Host The Show While They Figure This Whole Mess Out

To paraphrase a certain Mad Titan: all that unnecessary drama, all that controversy, and where did it that bring you? Back to the guy everyone assumed would get the "Jeopardy!" hosting gig in the first place, apparently. At this point, the story of the behind-the-scenes headaches that have plagued the long-running and widely-loved game show since the passing of Alex Trebek have cast an inescapable shadow over the actual show itself. While the hunt for a permanent, full-time host is still ongoing...

The Batman TV Spot Teases The New Reboot, New Full Trailer Coming Next Month

We have been waiting for "The Batman" for a long time. Even after director Matt Reeves took over for Ben Affleck, and once Robert Pattinson became our new Bruce Wayne, it took a bit. But the DC Comics adaptation is finally coming out early next year and the hype train is about to leave the station, as evidenced by this new TV spot which, fun fact, contains 0 percent new footage. That being said, its primary importance is hyping up the brand new, full-length trailer that is just around the corner...

Possession Trailer: This Gonzo Horror Classic Is In 4K Now

Starring Isabelle Adjani and Sam Neill, "Possession" was released in 1981 – and it was not a hit, at all. However, over the years, a steady cult following has grown up around the movie.

Dune Director Denis Villeneuve Is Not A Fan Of Marvel Movies, Sorry

You know what I was just thinking the other day? "It's been far too long since the last time a prominent filmmaker was randomly asked about their opinions about Marvel and sparked another week of relentless social media chicanery." True story, I swear! "Dune" director Denis Villeneuve must have picked up on the vibes I was sending out into the ether (I'll try to do better to control this superpower of mine from now on, don't worry), as he has become the latest in a long line of industry figures ...

Finch Poster Shows Off Post-Apocalyptic Tom Hanks, His Robot, And His Dog

I know of only two constants that keep me grounded amid this chaotic and unpredictable world: Zendaya is Meechee, and Tom Hanks is Finch. That latter point is what's relevant here, as Amblin Entertainment and Apple TV+ have revealed the first official poster for the post-apocalyptic movie that's fittingly titled -- you guessed it -- "Finch." Tom Hanks, of course, portrays the eponymous Finch in another film where he has to share the screen with the absolute minimum number of other human beings. ...

Warriors! Come Out To Play ... This New The Warriors Board Game

How has it taken this long to get a "The Warriors" board game? I know Walter Hill's 1979 action movie is a bit of a cult title and doesn't carry the cache of something like "The Thing" or "The Shining," which have previously gotten the tabletop treatment, but still! The whole set-up for the movie is essentially a board game itself.One group of hoodlums has to traverse the boroughs of New York and each area has a unique hostile gang wanting to kill them.

Sandman Netflix Series Will Bend Genres, Just Like The Original Comic

Neil Gaiman's comic series "The Sandman" is a sprawling epic that combines multiple genres to tell its near-mythical story.

Disneyland Ride Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin Is Getting An Overhaul

The last few years for the Disney theme parks have been full of change, which is to be expected and embraced. Some of those changes have focused on updating current attractions to become more culturally relevant. In some cases, as with Pirates of the Caribbean, it means revising show scenes to eliminate unpleasant stereotypes. In others, as with the forthcoming update to Splash Mountain, it means updating a ride from stem to stern. Now, another ride is getting an update, in the former style: Rog...
