We’ve all seen biopics or based on true events films and shows before. It’s nothing new really. But a new British show called Urban Myths will explore the urban myths or significant events of the subject’s life.
While you may not be familiar with the show itself, you may recall the questionable decision to cast Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson. This is that show, and you can check out a new trailer for it below.

“Doesn’t look like someone broke in; to me it looks like they were trying to break out.”
The Autopsy of Jane Doe opens right at the end of very strong year for horror. There were critical and theatrical hits like The Conjuring 2, Don’t Breathe, and Ouija: Origins of Evil, as well as plenty of noteworthy films uploaded to various streaming sites. I saw the preview for The Autopsy of Jane Doe and it genuinely creeped me out. Directed by Scandinavian filmmaker Andre Ovredal (Trollhunter), The Autopsy of Jane Doe is a claustrophobic, atmospheric, and an overall scary movie that fits comfortably amongst this year’s horror best.
The movie stars Brian Cox (Braveheart, Super Troopers,NOT Game of Thrones) and Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild, Lone Survivor) as a father and son coroner team dealing with a mysterious new homicide victim.

Brian Cox is a great actor, having appeared in a wide range of movies like Manhunter as the first to portray Dr. Hannibal Lektor on screen, Braveheart as William Wallace’s uncle Argyle, multiple Bourne movies as Ward Abbott, X-Men 2 as Stryker, Troy as Agamemnon, Trick ‘r Treat as Mr. Kreeg, RED and its sequel as Ivan, Rise of the Planet of the Apes as John Landon, and of course the timeless classic Super Troopers as Captain O’Hagan, among many others.
And as it turns out, Cox almost added another great title to his resume: HBO’s hit fantasy drama Game of Thrones. The Scottish actor was actually offered a role on the juggernaut series, but ended up turning it down. Now not only is he a huge fan of the show along with the rest of us, or a “great Game of Thrones fanatic“ as he puts it, but he’s also seen a few of his friends get to play in that world. And so, understandably, he now regrets his decision to turn down the job. See what he had to say below.
A new trailer has been released for Pixels, the upcoming movie about an alien race that uses our own classic arcade video games to attack Earth. You can check out the first trailer right here if you missed it.
The movie is directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), and stars Adam Sandler (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore), Kevin James (Here Comes the Boom, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry), Michelle Monaghan (True Detective, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones, The Station Agent), who’s basically playing Billy Mitchell from King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, Josh Gad (Frozen, Wish I Was Here), Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars, Spring Breakers), and Brian Cox (Braveheart, Rise of the Planet of the Apes).
