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.
Just mere days after it was announced that Shriek would be added to the villains roster for Andy Serkis‘ Venom 2, comes news that Naomie Harris (28 Days Later, Moonlight) will play the character. More on the story below.

CBS is readying to launch in January a new streaming series, Star Trek: Picard, featuring Patrick Stewart‘s famed Starfleet officer Jean-Luc Picard. The actor led the cast of TV’s Star Trek: The Next Generation as the captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise for 7 seasons beginning in 1987 and then in 4 theatrical films, the final being in 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis. To familiarize viewers with Jean-Luc Picard and the Star Trek: The Next Generation universe, CBS and Paramount have released Star Trek: Picard Movie & TV Collection, a new Blu-ray box set centering around the character.
The 6-disc Blu-ray set includes all four feature films starring TNG cast — Star Trek: Generations, Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Insurrection, Star Trek: Nemesis — as well as the scifi television show’s 2-part episode “The Best of Both Worlds.” If you don’t already own one of the previously released movie Blu-ray box sets, then this new Picard-centric package is the way to go as far as what you get for the price — and you get a lot.
Does anyone remember the Spider-Man: Maximum Carnage story arc? Well, it looks like Venom 2 will be adding a major character from that comic. According to new reports, Shriek will be joining Carnage (Woody Harrelson) in the mayhem. More on the report below.
When a film is able to amass an $855 million worldwide box office, you can be sure that the studio behind it will be interested in investing in a sequel. And that is what is happening with Venom. Though the film was panned by critics, Venom 2 is in the works.
Kelly Marcel, who co-wrote the script for the first film with Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, will be back to pen the sequel. However, director Ruben Fleischer won’t be back since he is busy working on Zombieland 2. More on the report below.
