The Charles Dickens novella A Christmas Carol is a timeless classic, adapted a great many times in the years since its publication in 1843.
For the upcoming holiday season a new adaptation of the tale is coming, this time from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight. A teaser trailer for this latest take was released earlier this week, and it promises a darker version of the story than most of the previous adaptations we’ve seen.
More info on the new adaptation of A Christmas Carol and the trailer can be found below.

Alien III? Didn’t that already happen back in the ’90s? By no less than William Gibson, the author of Neuromancer?
Yes, Alien3 was and still is a thing. Possibly much to the chagrin of many fans of the franchise. But, before that happened, there was an attempt at a script written by William Gibson (father of see above). According to the Alien vs. Predatorwiki, Gibson’s script was the first of 10 commissioned sequels to Alien and Aliens and was written in 1987 only to be re-written in 1988 and the studio accepted neither.
Director Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi horror classic Alien is set to arrive on 4K Ultra HD exactly one week from today.
The new release comes in celebration of the film’s 40th anniversary this year. You can find all of the information on the Alien 40th Anniversary Edition 4K release, including which bonus features will be included, below.
News of Mark Wahlbergtaking a $1.5 million paycheck for his reshoots on Ridley Scott‘s All the Money in the World came as a shock to many, especially when his co-star Michelle Williams was only paid 1% of that. Details of the staggering wage gap only got darker when it was reported that Wahlberg would only approve of Christopher Plummer, who was to be Kevin Spacey‘s replacement, if he got paid a large sum of money. It was a polarizing subject, with some saying Wahlberg was greedy, while others criticized Williams for not asking enough. To make matters worse, both are represented by the same agency, WME.
However, in order to quell an already volatile situation, Wahlberg has donated his $1.5 million paycheck to the Time’s Up movement. Plus, Williams has released a statement responding to the donation. More on the story below.
