Paul Feig on the ‘Last Christmas’ Twist, Playing With Genre, And How ‘Freaks and Geeks’ is the Template for ‘Dark Army’ [Interview]

Paul Feig was not happy that the internet guessed the twist in Last Christmas. But sometimes, in the words of the great George Michael, you gotta have faith. Of course, there was a chance that someone would guess the premise of Last Christmas, which takes its inspiration from the Wham! song of the same name, but that Feig was “not pleased” that audiences wouldn’t get the chance to be blown away as he was when he read Emma Thompson’s script. “I was just really emotional when I read it. It really...

‘Dark Army’ Will Be a “True Monster Film”, Says Director Paul Feig

Paul Feig has offered an update on Dark Army, his somewhat secretive new Universal monster movie. In a new interview, the filmmaker reveals he’s currently working on a script rewrite, and he hopes that the film will be his next if all goes according to plan. On top of that, Feig spoke a bit about what he’s going for with Dark Army – not so much a horror movie, but more like an old school “true monster film” from the classic Universal days.

‘Bride of Frankenstein’ Remake Might Still Be Aliiiive With Amy Pascal and John Krasinski Circling the Project

After the implosion of the Dark Universe, Universal had supposedly put a lid on the Bride of Frankenstein remake, but the project may still have a pulse after all.

Universal Hopes ‘The Monster Mash’ Movie Will Be a Graveyard Smash

Remember The Monster Mash? You know – the hit novelty song in which a bunch of monsters get together to have a graveyard smash? Well, it’s becoming a movie. Universal Pictures, who seem to be taking a grab-bag approach to their classic monsters at this point, are gearing up to make a Monster Mash movie to serve as the feature debut of music video director Matt Stawski. Plot details are being kept secret, but we can only hope the Transylvania Twist will be involved in some capacity. I was wor...

‘Renfield’ Movie Will Focus on Dracula’s Bug-Eating Henchman

Renfield, the lunatic who loves to eat bugs and pal around with Count Dracula, is getting his own movie.

‘Dark Army’ Will be a Universal Monster Movie in the Spirit of ‘Bride of Frankenstein’, According to Paul Feig

Universal is sitting on a horror goldmine: the Universal Monsters. Sadly, they haven’t been able to figure out what the hell to do with them. Their initial attempt to launch the Dark Universe with The Mummy failed immediately. Now, they’re taking a different approach. They have Leigh Whannell’s Invisible Man on the horizon. And then there’s the mysterious Dark Army, a film from Paul Feig. Feig’s movie will feature both classic Universal Monsters and new characters, but details on the project ha...

'Mr. Robot' recap: Tyrell's last stand

Loss, death, The Great Void, emptiness: it all hangs over “Not Found.” An appropriate title, as our heroes wander in the night, their Christmas Eves hardly a time for celebration, but rather a rumination on the meaninglessness of, well, everything. What even matters anymore? The Dark Army is winning. Our heroes are losing. And everyone is running out of time. What's the point of even trying anymore? The Dark Army has been in control for a long time, but the end of last week's episode a...

‘Mr Robot’ Season 3 Finale: What the Twists Mean for Season 4

The Mr. Robot season 3 finale may have tied up plenty of loose ends, but it left us with even more questions. Where will Elliot go now? What will Angela do with that earth-shattering revelation from Philip Price? And just what is up with that end credits scene? The third season of Sam Esmail’s dark hacker series hurdled toward its finale earlier this week, only to quietly wrap up with a return to the beginning. It’s not the promise of a better, alternate world that Esmail kept dropping hints of...

‘Mr. Robot’ Review: ‘Shutdown’ Brings a Surprisingly Quiet, Introspective End to a Roller Coaster of a Season

(We’re going to kickstart our weekly discussion of USA’s Mr. Robot season 3 by answering one simple question: who had the biggest mental breakdown in this week’s episode?) Long after the final credits rolled for “Shutdown,” the lyrics of Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang Bang” echoed in my head. “Bang bang/ He shot me down / bang bang / I hit the ground / Bang bang /that awful sound /bang bang / my baby shot me down.” I say Nancy Sinatra (sorry, Cher fans) even though the version of “Bang Bang” that was pl...

‘Mr. Robot’ Season 4 Ordered by USA

The revolution isn’t over yet. USA Network announced that Mr. Robot has been renewed for a fourth season, shortly before its third season finale airs. This renewal comes on the tail of the most invigorating season of the grim hacker show yet and star Christian Slater‘s third nomination for a Golden Globe for his work as the title character. The third season has found idealistic hacker Elliot Anderson (Rami Malek) attempting to undo the devastating consequences of his hack that brought down t...

Mr. Robot season 3 has been a return to form for the USA Network show, reminding us that it is one of the best and most invigorating shows on television. “Stage 3” takes that momentum and brings it to a brief halt — though writers Kyle Bradstreet and Courtney Looney try their best to make an episode about moving plot pieces a...

Sobering reminders of reality go hand-in-hand with Mr. Robot, and “Frederick and Tanya” is no exception. The episode has the thankless job of dealing with the aftermath of the Dark Army’s shocking attack against 71 E Corp buildings, as well as tying up loose plot threads that have been forgotten since season 2. Plot has never...
