The Twilight Zone is coming. And for those who have a CBS All Access pass, they will be able to see producer and host Jordan Peele‘s vision for the anthology series that is rooted in horror and suspense. The series promises to return to what made the original great, and will have a contemporary twist to it.
Now a pair of new trailers have been released for the episodes “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet” starring Adam Scott and “The Comedian” starring Kumail Nanjiani. Check these trailers out below.
An official trailer has been released for Killing Gunther, an action comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The movie is written and directed by Saturday Night Live alum Taran Killam, who is making his directorial debut.
The story follows a group of assassins who have grown sick and tired of Gunther (Schwarzenegger), the greatest hitman alive. To fix this problem, they join forces in hopes of simply making him not alive anymore. An easy enough plan on paper, but one which proves to be a tad bit more challenging than anticipated.

Director Michael Dougherty previously took the superstitions of the Halloween season and molded them into superbly told stories for his horror anthology film Trick ‘r Treat. Now, the filmmaker takes on Alpine folklore’s anti-Santa in his Christmas horror Krampus. Though it’s a while before the horned and hoofed baddie makes his on-screen appearance in the film, when he does arrive during a massive blizzard, he brings with him an unfathomable reign of terror the likes of which young Max and his family have never seen.
It’s a few days before Christmas, and Max (Emjay Anthony) is finding it hard to spread the cheer this year. After having a physical fight during a Christmas pageant, the prepubescent boy fails at getting his family to follow their usual holiday customs. He just wants things to be the way they used to be before his dad David (Adam Scott) became a busy workaholic; his mom Sarah (Toni Collette) closed herself off and became an overachieving Martha Stewart type; and his stereotypically distant teen sister Megan (Stefania LaVie Owen) hit puberty and stopped bothering with him. Thankfully, Max can still find comfort in Omi (Austrian-born actress Krista Stadler), his homely old bun-wearing grandma who seems very adamant that her grandson finish writing his annual Letter to Santa.
Last week we saw a featurette for the upcoming holiday horror flick Krampus that dove into the folklore behind the demon-like creature who comes to take bad children away.
Another new featurette has now been released called “A Look Inside,” which includes director, writer, and producer Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat) and some of the cast members talking about the movie.
You can read much more about the movie and watch the video below.
Universal Pictures has released a new featurette for Krampus, the Christmas horror flick from Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty.
The new video briefly dives into the folklore behind Krampus, a demon-like creature who kidnaps the kids too naughty to be visited by Santa. The video also covers the way the figure is celebrated in other countries—young men will often dress up as the terrifying creature and frighten the local children on the eve of Saint Nicholas Day, though some of the costumes are no doubt scary enough to make even adults want to flee, arms flailing about—as well as some appearances in pop culture.
