The Guillermo del Toro Produced ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ Begins Shooting This Week

The Guillermo del Toro Produced ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ Begins Shooting This Week

The thriller follows a group of young teens who must solve the mystery surrounding sudden and macabre deaths in their small town.

So hyped that this is actually happening, feels like it's been talked about forever. I wanna see a lot of GDT-influence.

I was hoping it would be an anthology series with little to no greater narrative but I'll take it.

I bought one of these books at a fifth grade bookfair. Opened it up and saw a charcoal potrait of a scarecrow tanning human hide on a roof. Then another charcoal of a lady with freshly hatched spiders crawling out of her cheek. It was like a lightning bolt hit my brain and fried any sense of safety I had. I loved it.

A documentary on the books is currently showing in film festivals. https://www.salemhorror.com/schedule/2018/10/6/scary-stories

Robbie Rotten actor Stefán Karl Stefánsson has passed away (age 43) Thanks for the memories.

Robbie Rotten actor Stefán Karl Stefánsson has passed away (age 43) Thanks for the memories.

July 10, 1975 – August 21, 2018

Stefan Karl Stefansson, 43, has passed away after battling aggressive bile duct cancer for two years. Per Stefan's wishes, there will be no funeral. His earthly remains will be scattered in secrecy in a distant ocean. Stefan's family wants to express their gratitude for the support and warmth received in recent years, and to express their deepest sympathy to the many friends and fans of Stefan Karl.

I have been dreading this day since the last two years :(

Rest in Peace, Stefan.

Fuck, was hoping he was out of the woods. He really was number one.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends, cancer sucks.

Can't believe it. Thought he was in the clear. RIP.

He always seemed like a truly kind person. I always admired the way he embraced the meme height of "we are number 1". He really appeared to be passionate about what he did and cared for his fans, and he showed so much strength and courage with his battle with cancer.

Stefan will surely be missed, he was one of the good ones.

Danny Boyle Exits James Bond 25 as Director

Danny Boyle Exits James Bond 25 as Director
Danny Boyle Exits James Bond 25 as Director

... due to creative differences

This phrase has been tossed out for extremely many film productions the past two years.

I knew it was too good to be true

Step 1. Let's get a director with a unique voice to make a franchise film.

Step 2. Let's force that director to make a generic movie that any director can make.

Step 3. Let's get rid of that director because he wouldn't make a generic movie.

"We love your work, it's distinctive, it's fresh, it's the shot in the arm we need in the franchise. Having said that, Bond does have a certain style, and the audience have certain expectations so we're going to have to get you to change your vision just a little completely, is that OK?"

Kelly Marie Tran Opens Up About Leaving Toxic Social Media: "I Won't Be Marginalized"

Kelly Marie Tran Opens Up About Leaving Toxic Social Media: "I Won't Be Marginalized"

Social media ruined the internet.

She probably could have left out "I want to live in a world where women are not subjected to scrutiny for their appearance." Is Kelly so naive to think her looks isn't part of the reason she's in movies? Hollywood will always be about looks. She's in the one industry where looks make or break you. You can be an "ugly" doctor or lawyer or engineer. You can't be an "ugly" leading actress. I get that she wants the world to be blind: color blind, sex blind, appearance blind. Yes, judge my character and talent, not my cheek bones. But she most definitely went into the wrong career. Is she naive to think the casting people, producers and director of Star Wars didn't cast because she fits a certain look they wanted?

Social media is ruining/has ruined far more than just the internet.

I think that's a good attitude to have. Don't let all of the weirdos get you down.

If Guy Ritchie isn't returning, I'm not watching.

Guy Ritchie who directed the first two installments hasn’t revealed, if he will return for Sherlock Holmes 3. Even if he decides to return, the team will have to wait as he has commitments with Disney which isn’t due until May next year. The movie filming is set to start in early 2019 and the movie is set to release on Christmas in 2020.

I forgot he's doing the live action Aladdin. As for his take on Sherlock Holmes, they are steeped in his style Game of Shadows took it in the nth degree.

I dunno, if it's made well I still feel it could be enjoyable

His style really makes these movies enjoyable... so I'm with you

SLICE - Official Trailer | A24

SLICE - Official Trailer | A24

Excited to see how Chance does acting. Trailer was just ok, but between A24, the cast, and what seems like a decent enough story I'll definitely keep tabs on this one

Zazie Beetz is in everything. I think she has lots of movies lined up to be released before 2019 ends.

PS: Love for Hannibal too. :D

Seeing him with that camera makes me think Joe Kerry would make a pretty solid Peter Parker.

Kelly Marie Tran: I Won’t Be Marginalized by Online Harassment

Kelly Marie Tran: I Won’t Be Marginalized by Online Harassment

In one of the Crazy Rich Asians thread people pointed to her character as a reason why forced diversity ruins movies. Like what? As if the character would have been differently written if she was white?

The online hate is real and it's absurd.

Wtf is forced diversity? That makes no sense in the context of SW.

A fucking galaxy full of different aliens, but adding a few non-white people is somehow a political act, rather than a proper expansion of characters?

People who have a problem with the ethnicity or race of characters are pure idiots. Make all the arguments you want about the character’s function within the diegesis, but leave the edit racist shit at the door.

People that can’t distinguish between the actor and character baffles me... did I enjoy the character of Rose, no. Do I have anything against Kelly, also no. Ridiculous

“I don’t hate Kelly. I’m just critical of the movie and choose to voice my criticism by commenting incessantly on every single social media post made by the actors and director, even if it’s just a picture of them with their grandparents or them enjoying their birthday. My ability to criticize will not be marginalized”.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople is fantastic.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople is fantastic.

I absolutely love Thor: Ragnarok. It's probably my favorite MCU movie and I heard Waititi's other movies were great as well but I never actually got around to watching them. Come to find out that Hunt for the Wilderpeople is on Hulu and decided to put it on and it's such an amazing, funny, and genuinely heartfelt movie. Sam Niell plays an excellent grumpy old man and if you loved Rachel House's Topaz in Ragnarok she has more screentime as an overbearing Child Services worker and is even funnier here. Seriously, go watch this.

Edit: Everyone is recommending What We Do In the Shadows so I'll definitely check that out.

Watch What We Do In the Shadows. Absolutely hysterical.

"Faulkner is cauc-asian" well, they got that wrong because you're obviously white.

I love when Ricky initially meets his foster family, walks through the house, around, and gets back in the car. Absolutely hilarious.

Ric-key BAY-KA!!!

This tells me so much about the movie.

Such a very 90s Will Smith premise but Ang Lee's inclusion has me hopeful. Likely he's doing it for some crazy CGI dual Will Smith thing, but hopefully there's more to it.

Sorry for the shit quality. Could only find it on some IG page.

Description:

An elite assassin becomes the target of a mysterious young operative who can seemingly predict his every move.

Release Date:

It's like moonlight. Except an 8th grader did it in an introduction to photoshop lesson. They didn't even 2 slightly different photos, like come on.

Can people agree in advance that this is a movie and therefore meant to entertain, which it does by compressing a long and complicated story into a couple hours -- meaning it will not be 100% historically accurate, and your ability to point out inaccuracies is not a sign of great moral superiority?

ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NOT

This looks like a sequel to Braveheart, even has a speech-moment, and it seems to want to repair Robert the Bruce's bad reputation built in Braveheart.

I'm in regardless.

Well this looks fucking good.

Hell or High Water was fantastic and i'm extremely excited for what Mackenzie and Pine has cooked up for us.
