Fantasy Island Movie

Fantasy Island had a premise where a few of your favorite things can become a reality. Whatever vices you had could finally be indulged at a secluded paradise hideaway. Of course, having those fantasies does come at a price. It made for a very popular TV show that ran for seven seasons in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Now, Blumhouse has taken that show and given it a cinematic revival, along with a few of its signature touches and added twists. An official trailer for this new Fantasy Island has been released by Sony Pictures, and you can check it out below.

The Invisible Man Movie

If the Dark Universe is being reborn, I’m glad it’s through Blumhouse Productions. Producer Jason Blum has always prioritized a good story over a simple premise, and now we will get to see what he can do with The Invisible Man from director Leigh Whannell.

The film will see Elisabeth Moss as a wife who escapes from her abusive husband, only to find out that he may be haunting her as an invisible man. Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen also star. Check out the trailer below.

The Hunt

Universal Pictures’ The Hunt, from director Craig Zobel, using a script written by Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse, seemed to come out of nowhere. The trailers revealed that Blumhouse would be releasing another social satire akin to some of their previous films those in The Purge franchise. In The Hunt, a group of elite high-class rich snobs pay to participate in hunting down and killing people for sport. While the premise of it isn’t shocking per se, the film would be released in theaters in the wake of recent racially-motivated shootings. However, it seems that the premise has caused such a political uproar that it pushed Universal to cancel the release of The Hunt. More on the report below.

James Gunn

Last summer, James Gunn was in the midst of preparing for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the closing installment of the Guardians trilogy. What happened after that can only be described as a whirlwind of crazy. First he was fired by Disney for some old tweets that were dug up. Then he was hired by WB to write The Suicide Squad, which eventually led to him directing as well. Finally, he was rehired by Disney to finish the Guardians trilogy.

The filmmaker, who is usually vocal on social media, has been silent about those recent events. At least up until now. Gunn is now opening up about what has happened to him, how he thought he would never be rehired, and the status of both The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. See what he had to say below.

Jason Blum Offers Terrible Explanation To Why There Are No Female Blumhouse Directors, Later Apologizes

Jason Blum Blumhouse

“There are no female filmmakers interested in the genre” is possibly the worst thing anyone could say when asked why there are no female filmmakers yet for said genre. Patty Jenkins has proven that theory wrong for the comic book genre with Wonder Woman. Jennifer Kent took on the horror genre with The Babadook. So to say there are no female filmmakers interested in genre films would be very incorrect. Plus, it’s 2018.

And yet, the thing that should not be said, continues to be said. This time, Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum tried to explain why there haven’t been any female directors for a Blumhouse film. Let’s just say, it’s an explanation that wasn’t well-received and he has since issued an apology for his comments. More on the report below.

Spectre Dave Bautista as Mr. Hinx

Fantasy Island can be considered as an early inspiration for shows like LOST and Westworld. The 1970s ABC TV show featured an enigmatic man (played by Ricardo Montalbán) who oversaw an island where anyone’s dreams can come true. However, these dreams can come at a huge price. And for some visitors, these dreams could turn into full-on nightmares. Blumhouse will bring that same horror-like vibe to a new iteration to the big screen, which will star Michael Pena and Jimmy O. Yang. Now, they’ve just cast their newest start. New reports says Guardians Of The Galaxy star Dave Bautista is in talks to have a role in the film. More on the story below.

‘Glass’ Trailer: M. Night Shyamalan’s Latest Reveals Villains Are Among Us and Heroes Are Within Us

Glass starring Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Bruce Willis

M. Night Shyamalan is not one for traditional storytelling. So when he inserted that twist in Split, it showed that the world of Unbreakable was much bigger than we originally thought. That’s because it was revealed that Split took place in the same universe as Unbreakable, and the story would continue on with Glass.

Now Universal has released the newest trailer for Glass starring Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Bruce Willis in a film that could change the superhero genre as we know it. Check it out below.

Remember Universal’s short-lived Dark Universe that died an agonizing death when The Mummy opened in theaters to lower than expected numbers? It may have had a short lifespan, but it looks like the Dark Universe could potentially be rising from the grave. Jason Blum, founder and CEO of Blumhouse, says he is interested in bringing the Dark Universe back to life. More on the story here below.
