Watch: Quibi’s Homemade ‘The Princess Bride’ Remake Scene, Starring Jack Black, Jon Hamm, Patton Oswalt, and More

Last year, we heard rumblings that Hollywood was considering tackling a The Princess Bride remake. Frankly, that sounded like an awful idea because Rob Reiner’s 1987 movie managed to strike a perfect balance of tones and it seemed unlikely that any new version would be able to recapture its spirit – especially without original writer William Goldman on board (Goldman died in 2018.) Then, a few weeks ago, Jason Reitman (Juno, Ghostbusters: Afterlife) announced that he had recruited an A-list cas...

‘Man & Witch’: Sean Astin, Christopher Lloyd, and the ‘NeverEnding Story’ Queen Unite for a New Fantasy Film

A new fantasy film is in the works which aims to be a “heartwarming homage to the lo-fi fantasy films of the ’80s,” and it’s set to unite three actors who are widely known for starring in iconic 1980s movies. Tami Stronach, who played the Childlike Empress in 1984’s The NeverEnding Story, will co-star in this new movie opposite Sean Astin (1985’s The Goonies) and Christopher Lloyd (the Back to the Future trilogy).

‘His Dark Materials’ Author Philip Pullman to Release Unseen Lyra Novella in October

When The Amber Spyglass brought Philip Pullman‘s His Dark Materials trilogy to an end in 2000, that seemed like the end of the story of its protagonist. But 20 years later, and we’re still following the bullish heroine on adventures in her parallel-world Oxford — both on screen in the excellent HBO/BBC TV series adaptation, and in new books published by Pullman. While Pullman’s latest novel The Secret Commonwealth, the second in a new trilogy of books set in the world of His Dark Materials, pic...

Re:Zero’s Second Season Already Rife With Death

‘The Sandman’ Audible Trailer: Neil Gaiman’s Acclaimed Comic Book Series Becomes a Dreamy Audio Drama

Neil Gaiman‘s surreal comic book masterpiece The Sandman seemed like it would prove to be unadaptable — though attempts to bring it to live-action have been made over the years. But before The Sandman would ever hit our screens (with the latest project being made as a Netflix series), it will hit our eardrums. An audio drama adaptation of The Sandman is set to debut on Audible this month, with a star-studded cast led by James McAvoy set to tell the story of Dream, the metaphysical king of dream...

Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan Chased by Sex-Hungry Monster Girls

Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan‘s sexiness has been affirmed as its premiere episode involves an assortment of monster girls craving the male protagonist’s semen so that they can have offspring as powerful as him, with perhaps the only negative aspect of the show being its pitifully short duration.

Three Personalities in My Head Talk to Me and Make Me Do Things

I remember hearing a little voice in my head since I was in kindergarten. I thought it was normal so I just didn’t talk about it. As I grew older I became conscious that this isn’t natural and that now there are other two persons living within me. They have different personalities, talk to me, to each other. We discuss a lot, it feels like having roommates, but they are always with me. I’m pretty sure this isn’t schizophrenia at all since the symptoms described by people who have it are nothing ...

What if Middle-earth was in Pakistan?

J.R.R. Tolkien hinted that his stories are set in a really ancient version of Europe.But a fantasy realm can be inspired by a variety of places; and perhaps so is Tolkien's world.These intriguing similarities with Asian topography show that it may be time to 'decolonise' Middle-earth. Mental decolonisation Where on earth was Middle-earth? Based on a few hints by Tolkien himself, we've always sort-of assumed that his stories of "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" were centered on Europe, bu...
