Exclusive pics from Netflix’s Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance set to premiere in Aug

Entertainment Weekly has supplied some EXCLUSIVE pics from The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance which will serve as a prequel premieres in Aug. There is no trailer yet, but for now, we can now see some of the characters and know this will not be CGI but actual puppetry. Louis Leterrier (Now you see me, Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk) talked about his work for the series.

 

“I was not fighting against anyone, I was fighting against common sense and practicality,” he says with a laugh. “It’s so so complicated to build a puppet, hire puppeteers, all that stuff. We chose the long, hardest road and we’re very thankful [we did]. It looks absolutely stunning.”

The series will be 10 episodes featuring Nathalie Emmanuel, Anya Taylor-Joy and Taron Egerton as the voices of the Geflings. Additional voices, but no word yet on who will be playing who is Harvey Fierstein, Mark Hamill, Ralph Ineson, Jason Isaacs, Keegan-Michael Key, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Simon Pegg, Andy Samberg, Caitriona Balfe, Helena Bonham Carter, Harris Dickinson, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Izzard, Theo James, Toby Jones, Shazad Latif, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, Alicia Vikander, and Donna Kimball. The show’s executive producers are Leterrier, Halle Stanford, and Jim Henson’s daughter, Lisa Henson

Below the first trailer about the show. No word yet on the official trailer, but hopefully soon.

Yes, Swamp thing is still happening! Plus get your first look at the teaser for the show!

Yes, Swamp thing is still happening! Plus get your first look at the teaser for the show!

It was reported earlier today SwampThing was going to be no more. Myself along with many fans were heartbroken what with the success of Doom Patrol and Titans the DC app has been showing continuous success with the shows. Not holding back on language or violence.

Well folks don’t worry SwampThing will deliver just that the show which will be produced by James Wan has promised to see horror like violence and gore in the show. Derek Mears (Friday the 13th and Hatchet 3) will be playing SwampThing here’s the synopsis of the show. The show was cut from 13 episodes to ten episodes for creative reasons. I’ll be more than happy to take that instead of losing the whole series.

“Swamp Thing” centers on CDC researcher Abby Arcane (Reed). When she returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland — only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.  

Below you can see the teaser trailer for the show premiering May 31st!

No April Fool’s joke. Watch the first episode of the Twilight Zone now.

Unbelievably The Twilight Zone premiered today on CBS ALL ACCESS. Now, this is a streaming service that you will have to pay monthly to watch the episodes. Sadly, the entire series is not airing all at once, but each week a different episode will air. Today is a day of pranks, jokes, and misleading information. CBS decided to give the fans the chance to watch the first episode for free on YouTube.

Normally I will give a concise review with no spoilers, or just give my thoughts. This time we will let you the fans check it out. Here is the small plot of the episode called THE COMEDIAN, Comedian Samir Wassan (Kumail Nanjiani) wants to be famous…but at what cost? The episode also features Tracy Morgan.

Netflix to bring Resident Evil as a TV series

Netflix to bring Resident Evil as a TV series

Just like zombies Resident Evil refuses to stay dead. Deadline is reporting that NETFLIX will be doing a live action tv series. Per Deadline, “the plan is for the series to expand the Resident Evil universe and deepen the existing mythology. I hear the series will keep the basic premise, which also served as a setup for the movie franchise. The drama series will explore the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus.”

Let’s face it the movies are great, the video games are great even the cgi cartoons aren’t bad. This is big news where Netflix is getting a lot of buzz with their TV and films. Original or not this will be interesting to see where it goes. No word yet on casting or release date.

The Lost Boys is coming back to the small screen by the CW.

The Lost Boys is coming back to the small screen by the CW.

It appears that the CW is going to take a gamble on a classic horror film. The Lost Boys (1987). The CW has ordered a pilot for the series. With the success of shows like Riverdale which is a surprisingly great show could lighting strike twice? We shall see if this is going to be true or not. There was a time the CW was going to do a TV show about Friday the 13th  which due to legal issues fell through and may not become released, but that’s the business for you. With the not so welcomed reviews of the sequels could the series be the redemption, or just simply fade out? Hard to say at this point since there will mostly be mixed reviews. Deadline has reported the information from their website

Logline: Welcome to sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires. After the sudden death of their father, two brothers move to Santa Carla with their mother, who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead. 

There is no word of any cameos or if this will be a continuation or complete retelling.
