Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door, and makes a quick friend in Champ (Ryan Lee). But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah’s mysterious dad is in fact R.L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series.


As Zach starts learning about the strange family next door, he soon discovers that Stine holds a dangerous secret: the creatures that his stories made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Stine’s creations are unintentionally released from their manuscripts, Zach’s life takes a turn for the weird. In a crazy night of adventure, it’s up to Zach, Hannah, Champ, and Stine to team up and get all of these figments of Stine’s imagination – including Slappy the Dummy, the girl with the haunted mask, the gnomes and many more – back in the books where they belong to save the town.

#JessicaJones Trailer "Nightcap"

After a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases in New York City. It's time the world knew her name.

Ritter stars as Jessica, a woman with super-strength and advanced healing powers who was once a superhero. After a traumatic experience, however, she gave that up and is now making a living as a private eye. Her cases often bring her into contact with those similarly boasting special abilities as well as the usual: cheating spouses, small crimes and missing relatives.



Overseen by Melissa Rosenberg and based on Brian Michael Bendis’ Alias comic book series, the show will also feature Rachael Taylor as Jessica’s closest friend Patricia “Trish” Walker, Mike Colter as friend and sometime love interest Luke “Power Man” Cage (who will be starring in his own series, now shooting), Carrie-Ann Moss as the enigmatic Harper and David Tennant as Zebediah Kilgrave, The Purple Man, a psychic psychopath who has caused so much trouble for Jessica in the past and looks set to continue to do so in the present.

As you can see from the teaser, Jessica doesn’t really do mornings, and she’s not best pleased at being woken up. But she’ll be a little more active for the series, which drops in its entirety on Netflix on November 20. It’s part of the Defenders set of shows, which also includes Daredevil, back next year for a second season.

Movie Review: 'Sicario'

After a very slow start, Sicario becomes one of the best movies of the year.

Review by Matt Cummings

August and early September were some of the worst I've ever seen at the box office. But luckily, the Oscar season is approaching, with several noteworthy films having already arrived. Among them is the thriller Sicario which almost takes too long to get going. But once it finally does, it becomes a brutal, engrossing experience that is instantly worthy of Oscar praise.

Set on the US-Mexican border, Sicario introduces us to the Idealistic FBI Agent Kate (Emily Blunt) who discovers a grisly reminder of the Mexican cartels' power. Soon, she's whisked away to a intra-agency meeting with the flip-flop wearing Matt (Josh Brolin), who offers her a chance to find out who left her with a house full of corpses. Thrown into a hornet's nest of crime and violence on a scale she's never seen, Kate must decide whether Matt and his mysterious friend Alejandro (Benecio del Toro) can be trusted or whether they're part of the problem. The answers will shock Kate to her core, setting into motion a series of events she cannot control and that could ultimately lead to her own scandalous death.

Director Denis Villenueve continues to tell powerful and engaging (albeit bleak) stories as he did in 2013's Prisoners with all the skill of a cinematic master. He and Writer Taylor Sheridan envision a world on the edge of chaos, with the only difference between the villains and the good guys being who has the most effective killers on their side. The newcomer Sheridan fills Kate's world with world-class liars and assassins, whose only motivations are to give the drug trade to one cartel so they're easier to manage. That's a tough pill to swallow, along with the reality that this war on drugs is never going to end. Period. Sheridan puts Kate in the crosshairs of men who make it their mission to use up good people like her, creating a final sequence that's hard to watch but expertly crafted.

Everyone turns in solid performances, from the almost-sleepy-eyed del Toro to the flip-flop killer Brolin. They stand on one side of a very nasty fence, charred and beaten down with choices that alienated them from society long ago. Both take that side on with believability and a healthy amount of ego, pushing Kate to her limits on several occasions. On the white picket side is Blunt, who turns in a great performance as the idealistic FBI agent with has no idea of the world she's about to enter. Once she emerges from it, Blunt gives her all the looks of someone who's seen horrors that have permanently changed her. And even though she is our conduit into this world, Sicario really isn't about her. del Toro takes over this film about 3/4 of the way, exacting a special kind of revenge that might go down as the most disturbing of the year. To see him and Blunt share screen time is both a joy and an exercise in madness, with one having no idea about how dark the other truly is . That's the indispensable nature of the success behind Sicario.

The great cinematographer Roger Deakins also makes a powerful statement, lending his hand in crafting a rousing, sadistic vision behind the drug cartels and the seemingly open nature of the Mexican border with the United States. Even if such things aren't really the case, Deakins and Villenueve make you think it is: their universe is one of move and countermove, graying loyalties, dirty US cops, and an almost medieval way of dealing with your enemies. All gushing aside, however, is the fact that Sicario takes awhile to get going; and by that I mean almost 45 minutes. You are really placed in Kate's shoes as you wonder with her where she is going, what are her new team's motivations, and even pondering whether they can be trusted. But once those answers are revealed, you find yourself so deep into the story (and into Kate's rabbit hole), that it's too late to climb out.

Sicario asks tough, uncomfortable questions that might not have clear-cut answers. Can we win a drug war when the odds are so stacked against us? Is the internal system of corruption within our borders that pervasive? Rather than trying to answer these, go see one of the best films of the early Oscar run; you'll find yourself wanting to know more about a subject with no clear winner and lots of losers. Whether it deserves Oscar noms will depend on future releases, but in a vacuum this one deserves plenty of consideration.

Sicario is Rated R for strong violence, grisly images, and language and has a runtime of 121 minutes.

Movie Review: 'The Martian'

The science-fiction epic The Martian is also an irresistible human drama.

Review by Matt Cummings

With news recently that Mars most likely has water, mankind seems more ready than ever to venture there. Thus it seems fitting that Ridley Scott's The Martian should arrive to remind us of the dangers those journeys will ultimately bring. But the result is a brilliant, smart, and well-acted affair that is also one of the best films of the year.

While on a mission to Mars, Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is left behind after a massive storm leaves him injured and presumed dead. His commander (Jessica Chastain), and fellow crew members (Michael Pena, Kate Mara, and Sebastian Stan) are forced to abandon the mission, while Watney wakes up injured and covered in sand. Rather than giving up, he decides to survive until the next mission arrives four years later, 'sciencing the shit' out of the remains of base camp into a partial greenhouse. Meanwhile on Earth, NASA Director Teddy Sanders (Jeff Daniels), Mission Director Vincent Kapoor (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and PR Director Montrose (Kirstin Wiig) learn of Watney's survival and immediately begin to plan a rescue mission. As the setbacks mount against Watney, NASA and the world join together to rescue him, regardless of the cost.

Director Ridley Scott has needed a win for a long time, producing a series of critical and financial flops that include The Counselor and Exodus: Gods and Kings. With The Martian, he scores nothing short of a trifecta: beautiful cinematography, solid and persuasive acting, and a story that instantly locks you in. Scott has been the unqualified master of shooting the pretty scene, and this time it's Mars that's on display. There's almost a sereneness to his desert world, when of course massive storms aren't battering the crew, brought to us by longtime Scott collaborator Dariusz Wolski. This will look and sound gorgeous on the largest platforms, so consider shelling out the bucks to see in XD, RPX, or Atmos. You'll be sure to feel every ounce of sand, and wince at every piercing ray of light. It's clearly the best visual spectacle we've seen since Mad Max: Fury Road.

But beyond the pretty images and solid score by Harry Gregson-Williams, The Martian is also a terrific human drama. Space exploration is not only about the thrill of discovery, but about people trying to survive the worst which space can throw at them. Witnessing Damon take his plight as a challenge is nothing short of a celebration of the human spirit. Watney's is indomitable, even when setback continues to strike what's left of his camp. He simply gets up and sciences what he can from what's left. That's a powerful message in a time when American ingenuity and even science itself seems under constant attack.

Damon is surrounded by a stellar cast, many of whom we sadly never get to know. That's the one issue with The Martian, as the backgrounds for their motivations are never fully expressed. Still, it's great to see Daniels chewing scenery with Ejiofor and Wiig, while Chastain and the underused Mara and Stan process the news of Watney's status. At its heart, The Martian is not about the typical negative drama or ludicrous feats of ridiculousness, but a movie about smart people banding together to save one man. Things are almost collegiate as Scott and Writer Drew Goddard ditch the melodrama in exchange for solving practical problems with experience and rationalism and the result is frankly refreshing. In fact, The Martian becomes a multi-cultural effort, characterized by sharp dialogue and a willingness to extend a helping hand merely because.

It's great to see Ejiofor as the head of the mission, Donald Glover as the wiz kid whose math offers a needed push about 3/4 of the way through the movie, and Michael Pena as the guy who gets to pal around with Watney over millions of miles. Audiences might feel like all the numbers and calculations which dominate the Andy Weir novel are too much, but they're necessary if we're going to get on Watney's side. And soon we're right there with him, as Damon's personable nature gets us through long stretches of him just digging holes, modifying his habitat, and cursing through the keyboard when NASA finally reconnects with him. And even though we know how it will end, The Martian sits right next to great recent Science-Fiction films like Gravity, and Interstellar.

The Martian is one of the best films of the year, bolstered by beautiful imagery and strong performances that are a bit undercooked. But the majesty and danger of space travel is captured brilliantly by Scott and well-acted by Damon. Its almost boisterous, positive message about humanity will find Oscar love in a time when so much darkness pervades both the imagined and real landscapes. Whether The Martian can stand alongside several other recent candidates will no doubt fall to audiences to decide. But it's definitely worth your time to find out.

The Martian is rated PG-13 for some strong language, injury images, and brief nudity and has a runtime of 141 minutes.

Taika Waititi Offered Thor: Ragnarok

Taika Waititi, who co-wrote and co-directed the vampire spoof What We Do In the Shadows, is in negotiations to direct the third installment of Marvel’s Thor movies, titled Thor: Ragnarok.

Chris Hemsworth is reprising his role of the Norse god of thunder.

Waititi’s emergence as the choice caps off a round of intense meetings that took place over the last month. Ruben Fleischer, Rob Letterman and Rawson Marshall Thurber were the other directors that were finalists for the gig.

Waititi is the latest head-scratcher from Marvel for their pick to direct a big-budget extravaganza, especially one steeped in the Norse mythology and an Apocalypse myth.

He wrote and directed episodes of Flight of the Conchords and is a writer on Disney’s upcoming animated feature Moana, which will star Dwayne Johnson.

(Fun fact: he appeared with Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern, the 2011 adventure movie from Marvel’s superhero movie rival, Warner Bros.)

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is another example of someone from the fringes that Marvel brought into the majors.

#Watchmen TV Series Heading To HBO

Variety is reporting HBO is in early talks with Zack Snyder to develop a “Watchmen” television series, based on the superhero comic book series from DC Comics, Variety has confirmed with the network. Snyder directed the 2009 film adaptation of “Watchmen.”

“Preliminary discussions regarding ‘Watchmen’ have occurred but we have no additional information and no deals are in place,” HBO said in a statement Thursday.

Warner Bros., which owns DC Entertainment, declined to comment, though insiders confirm the studio would be involved in the potential project.

Other than Snyder meeting with the premium cabler to discuss adapting the DC property for TV, any storyline details are being kept under wraps, and no writer or other auspices have been attached. There’s currently no word on whether the series would be a prequel, sequel or new take on “Watchmen.”

Should the project (first reported by Collider) continue, HBO’s “Watchmen” would mark Snyder’s first big foray into television.

The director/writer/producer, who wrote and directed “Sucker Punch” and “300,” is at the helm of the upcoming “Justice League” pair of films, and will produce Gal Gadot’s big screen “Wonder Woman” in 2017 as well as Jason Momoa’s “Aquaman” in 2018. He also directed Henry Cavill’s Superman pic “Man of Steel” and is an exec producer on the hotly anticipated “Suicide Squad,” which hits theaters Aug. 5.

The 2009 “Watchmen” movie — which starred Jackie Earle Haley, Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Patrick Wilson — opened big, but sank quickly, indicating that only comic book fans ran to theaters.

Lethal Weapon TV Series On It's Way

According to Deadline a Lethal Weapon hour long series based on the films that starred Mel Gibson and Danny Glover has landed at Fox with a put pilot commitment. It will be written by former Chuck executive producer Matt Miller, who most recently created and executive produced the ABC drama Forever for WBTV.

Like the Rush Hour series, Lethal Weapon is a relatively straight remake featuring the movies’ central characters, Roger Murtaugh, who was played by Glover, and Martin Riggs, who was played by Gibson.

Sergeant Murtaugh (Glover), who recently celebrated his 50th birthday, getting partnered with the suicidal and highly volatile ex-U.S. Army Special Forces soldier-turned-LAPD Narcotics Sergeant Riggs (Gibson), who had been reassigned to homicide after a psychotic episode on the job as he deals with grief following the death of his wife in a traffic accident.

On Lethal Weapon, Miller is reuniting with Forever executive producer Dan Lin whose Warner Bros-based Lin Pictures is producing the project alongside WBTV and Miller’s Good Session Prods. banner. Miller, Lin and Jennifer Gwartz executive produce.

The original 1987 Lethal Weapon movie, written by Shane Black and directed by Richard Donner, was a breakout hit, grossing $120 million on a $12 million budget.

James Wan To Deliver #MacGyver Reboot

THR is reporting 20th Century Fox Television is rebooting The A-Team, CBS is bringing MacGyver back to the small screen,

Based on the Richard Dean Anderson starrer that ran for seven seasons on ABC, the CBS take is described as a reimagining of the television series of the same name, following a 20-something MacGyver as he gets recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.

NCIS: Los Angeles' R. Scott Gemmill will pen the script and executive produce the CBS Television Studios drama while staying on board the CBS procedural. Henry Winkler, who exec produced the original series, is on board to serve in the same capacity alongside James Wan's Atomic Monster head of production Michael Clear. Wan (Aquaman, Mortal Kombat, Saw) will exec produce and direct the potential pilot and would segue into TV with the project. CBS is keeping mum on how large of a commitment the new MacGyver is, but the network and CBSTVS are said to be very high on bringing back a title from the studio's library. \

The original series ran for seven seasons and 139 episodes, spanning two TV movies on ABC in 1994. Producers Paramount Television attempted a spin-off series, Young MacGyver — starring Supernatural's Jared Padalecki — but that did not move forward.

For his part, Wan was attached to direct New Line's long-planned MacGyver movie in 2012.

The news comes as reboots of film and TV franchises continue to be in high demand. Fox also on Friday announced that it was rebooting Lethal Weapon for TV. That joins a rapidly growing list of reboots in the works as broadcast networks look for intellectual property with built-in brand recognition in a bid to cut through an original scripted landscape that features more than 400 series.

Fox is readying Behind Enemy Lines; Training Day is in the works at CBS; The CW is prepping The Notebook and Friday the 13th; and studio 20th Century Fox Television is shopping a reboot of The A-Team, while Norman Lear is rebooting One Day at a Time, though there is no network yet attached. For its part, Fox has revivals of The X-Files and Prison Break in the works after recently rebooting 24.

This season's reboots and revivals have debuted to mixed reactions. Fox's Minority Report has faltered in its early episodes; NBC's Heroes had a modest debut, while and CBS has found early success with Bradley Cooper's Limitless follow-up. Additional revival series based on Rush Hour (CBS) and Uncle Buck (ABC) are due later this season.

Bridget Jones’s Baby First Image

The original Bridget’s director Sharon Maguire is back to make this one, from a script that has seen work by Fielding and Far From The Madding Crowd’s David Nicholls. Plot-wise, details are still locked in Bridget’s diary, but word is that the new movie will be based on Fielding’s columns and not her third book, Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy, which (spoiler) outraged fans by offing Mark Darcy and leaving Bridge to raise their kids alone.

Instead, the title points to the early days of Bridget getting unexpectedly preggers and exploring the joys and challenges of motherhood. Patrick Dempsey is also in the cast in an unspecified role, though he could well be a new romantic rival, since Hugh Grant won’t be showing up in this one. There’s some debate as to whether Dempsey might be the father instead of Colin Firth’s Mark, which would add the requisite dramatic tension and potentially a chance for Firth to put his Kingsman skills to the test and avoid another rubbish slap fight.

#SUFFRAGETTE Opens OCTOBER 23rd In Select Cities

SUFFRAGETTE OPENS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23rd

Academy Award nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, lead the cast of a powerful drama about the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain.


The stirring story centers on Maud (played by Carey Mulligan), a working wife and mother whose life is forever changed when she is secretly recruited to join the U.K.’s growing suffragette movement. Galvanized by the outlaw fugitive Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Maud becomes an activist for the cause alongside women from all walks of life.

Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.

First Image From Mel Gibson's "Hacksaw Ridge"

With his cast and crew in place, Mel Gibson is now rolling the cameras on his new directorial effort, returning to the wartime milieu that has served him well in the past.

With a script from Gibson’s old collaborator Randall Wallace, Hacksaw Ridge is based on the true story of Desmond T. Doss, who served as a US Army medic in World War II during the battle of Okinawa and refused to kill. Despite his objections, his incredible valour saving lives during the battle saw him awarded the Medal of Honor, the first time a conscientious objector has won the decoration.

Garfield is playing Doss, with Vaughn as Sergeant Howell, the man whose job it is to get raw recruits ready for combat, Sam Worthington as Captain Glover, in charge of the unit and Luke Bracey is Smitty Ryker, the tough alpha of the platoon. Teresa Palmer will be Doss’ true love Dorothy Shutte, with Rachel Griffiths as his mother, Bertha.
