Apple TV+'s Alien Invasion Series Looks Suspiciously Invasion-Free

What would you do if aliens threatened to land on Earth?

Simon Kinberg, the producer behind many of the X-Men movies and Star Wars Rebels, is teaming up with David Weil, the showrunner of Amazon’s Hunters and Solos, for a ten-episode streaming show with a sprawling cast that “will make you question what you would do under extraterrestrial t...

‘The Alienist’ Should Please ‘Penny Dreadful’ and ‘Hannibal’ Fans

When The Alienist was first published in 1994, author Caleb Carr said, “I was always aware that if done correctly, this could end up being a great movie.” Well, we’ll never know if a great movie could’ve been made from this material, and not for lack of trying. Paramount Pictures bought the movie rights before publication in 1993, but behind-the-scenes squabbles about budget and scripts kept The Alienist from the big screen for more than two decades. Now Carr’s serial killer novel finds new lif...

No Concessions: “The Alienist”

Back in the day I used to read books before they became movies. I would have read The Alienist, Caleb Carr’s 1994 page turner, anyway–A Silence of the Lambs-type serial killer story set in 1896 New York had its hooks in me from its very description, and I was amply rewarded. A year or so later, for a story I was writing, I had the opportunity to visit Hollywood’s legendary Western Costume, a repository for filmdom finery. I got to see some of the lovely creations for the adaptation, which was to...

Black Mirror Is Coming Back To Netflix With New Episodes

Black Mirror, a Twilight Zone -esque anthology, is coming back to Netflix with new episodes. For the uninitiated, the show is a techno-horror series that feels like our reality, only fast-forwarded a few years. You can catch up here before the show returns on October 21.In the opening episode, a terrorist forced the Prime Minister of England to have sex with a pig. (That one turned out to be oddly prescient.) In another episode, a young man becomes a celebrity when he threatens to kill himself ...

’10 Cloverfield Lane’ Director Dan Trachtenberg Joins ‘Black Mirror’ Season 3

Black Mirror is already a perverse and pitch-black riff on The Twilight Zone, so why shouldn’t it steal directors from a film series that also seems to be borrowing a thing or two from Rod Serling’s iconic television show? 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg will helm an episode of the popular science fiction anthology series’ third season, which was wooed away from the U.K.’s Channel 4 by Netflix last year. This certainly feels like good news, as Trachtenberg is the kind of director ...
