There’s nothing like good old-fashioned hype to build anticipation. Jessica Chastain says that It: Chapter 2 will have one of the bloodiest horror sequences in horror movie history. There’s no telling if this is true or not, but based on how horrifying and successful Andy Muschietti‘s It (or It: Chapter 1) was, we should take the actress at her world.
Chastain, who appears in the upcoming sequel as an older Beverly Marsh, made the claim while on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. While I don’t take these nightly talk shows too seriously, they have been known to give us small nuggets worth of information; for instance, Ben Affleck confirming that he’s done with Batman. Sure, we’ve known that was coming, but still. And we’ve also seen trailers debut on these shows. So, there may be some truth to what Chastain said. Check out the video of her recent late night talk show appearance here below.
Dark Phoenix may be the final X-Men film under the 20th Century Fox banner before it goes over to Disney. If that is the case, then they will be going out on their own terms. And it looks like director Simon Kinberg could end the franchise with a story arc that we have already seen before: “The Dark Phoenix Saga.”
In it, Jean Grey becomes possessed by a cosmic entity and kills nearly all of life in the process. With the X-Men trying to regain control of their friend, there are outside forces that seek to manipulate her. And now we are seeing more of that, and how the new villain (Jessica Chastain) will stop at nothing to use Jean’s (Sophie Turner) new powers for her own nefarious goals. Fox has released a new trailer for Dark Phoenix, and you can check it out below.
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.
Dark Phoenix, the latest installment in the X-Men film franchise, was supposed to be released in November. But the film needed some additional photography and reshoots, and as a result, it pushed the release date to February of next year. Whether or not this was a sign of trouble is unknown. But at least we get to finally see what has become of Simon Kinberg‘s directorial debut.
Fox has dropped the first trailer for Dark Phoenix, which is based on the story arc of the same name which sees Jean Grey, one of the most powerful members of the X-Men, fuse with a cosmic entity who has the power to destroy the entire galaxy. Check out the trailer and a new poster below.
HBO already has one massive fantasy series in Game of Thrones, but now they’re adding another one. Though it’s not theirs exclusively.
It’s being reported that HBO has reached a deal to co-produce the BBC series His Dark Materials, which is based on author Philip Pullman‘s book trilogy of the same name. The report says that the series is likely one of the biggest and most expensive British series ever made.
