With the still-untitled A Quiet Place 2 not due to come out for well over a year, it’s not surprising that writer-director John Krasinski has been keeping very, well, quiet on the project as of late. But while it sounds like the filmmaker is still working out the details of the follow-up to his acclaimed horror hit, the Jack Ryan star is starting to open up a little about the approach he’s taking to the sequel.
Netflix recently revealed which films would be coming to their library to ring in the New Year, and they’re looking like a great collection for horror fans. Hailing from 2001-2004, you can now stream Jason X, Ghost Ship, Eight Legged Freaks, Gothika, Cellular and The Butterfly Effect. Of course, none of these are stone cold classics, but they’re all worthwhile watches if you can put up with a bit of wonky early noughties CGI and occasionally very hammy acting.
Though the new Aquaman movie sees Patrick Wilson’s Orm as the main villain, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s take on David Kane, aka Black Manta, has certainly earned its fans, among whom is DC writer Geoff Johns.
Even for a film that might clock in at around the 3-hour mark, Avengers: Endgame looks to be packed to the gills with characters and plotlines, but with actors like Katherine Langford and Hiroyuki Sanada entering the fray, it’s evident that Marvel Studios is hoping there’ll still be room for a few fresh faces in the action.
Though the Star Wars saga is very much Disney’s domain in a legal sense, the fans have long told stories of their own from that galaxy far, far away, and with this unofficial new Darth Vader movie, we see a testament to the dedication of the franchise’s followers.
Marvel Studios has managed to sneak in one last promo before the year is out in the form of a 14-second Captain Marvel video, and while the preview doesn’t offer much in the way of new footage, it’s still a stylish enough teaser to ensure fans will be ending 2018 more pumped than ever.
The devastating Snap sequence at the end of Avengers: Infinity War saw most of our favorite superheroes collapse into piles of dust in front of their traumatized friends. Just as we were reeling from that, we were then walloped with a credits scene in which Nick Fury and Maria Hill are driving through a city when cars and helicopters begin crashing around them. As Fury himself collapses into dust, he sends out a last-minute cry for help to Captain Marvel. But who were the pair on their way to see on this trip?
James Wan has done the impossible and made a successful Aquaman movie. When glancing at the hero’s current domination of the global box office, it’s worth remembering that for nearly two decades he’s been the butt of jokes about talking to fish and the idea of his own film being a hit was considered so ridiculous it was parodied in Entourage. Now, with the movie having received broadly positive reviews, a high audience score and proven a big hit in international markets, The Hollywood Reporter is predicting it’ll end up with an impressive $900 million haul.
We all know that DC has had a tough time getting some footing in its own interconnected superhero universe, otherwise known as the DCEU. Eventually getting the message that superhero movies can be fun and include more colors than grey and black, the DCEU has finally pulled up from a steep nosedive.
