Who would have imagined that 41 years after the biggest cult classic debuted, there would indeed be a made-for-tv remake of said beloved classic? That’s right, we’re talking about The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and yes, Fox picked it up. Kenny Ortega, director of High School Musical, will be directing this take on the classic 1973 film, which was firstly adapted from the Broadway show of the same name. Just when you thought Rocky Horror was a sacred cinema cow that couldn’t be touched, along comes this new trailer for the Fox production that asks, Could you be wrong? (more…)
Stranger Things, which popped up on Netflix on July 15th, has become a new favorite for many among the plethora of high quality original content on the streaming platform. The show largely plays homage to horror twinged, adventurous ‘boy’ films of the 1980s, with an even heavier atmosphere. The show itself is about the disappearance of a young boy, Will Bryers, in 1983 Indiana, and the increasingly strange circumstances that happen afterward (or rather, because of it), including the appearance of a mysterious girl with unnatural powers. While many fans loved it, they thought it was truly over. It seems, however, Netflix has other plans. (more…)

Sherlock says it himself, “Something’s coming.” Sherlock doesn’t know what yet, but it’s easy to see the strain he’s put himself under. Could Sherlock be cracking?

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are joined this season by Toby Jones, who will be another villainous Arthur Conan Doyle character. Check out the new trailer below. (more…)
If you’re completely unaware of what Mystery Science Theater 3000 is, well, shame on you. The show was created by Joel Hodgson in 1988, premiering on local Minneapolis UHF station, WUCW (then known as KTMA). MST3K’s entire focus was showing low budget, B-grade films in their entirety while three characters (Joel and two robots known as Tom Servo and Crow) mocked the movies relentlessly, their silhouettes taking up the bottom fourth of the screen. It wasn’t until the show moved to Comedy Central, however, that it became a cult success, running for six seasons until 1997. After that it went onto SyFy (well, The Sci-Fi Channel back then), running for three more seasons until 1999. After that second cancellation, he powers-that-be in the show’s creative went on with their lives, many of them moving on to form RiffTrax. Then, in 2015, creator Joel Hodgson started a Kickstarter campaign to revive the show a third time. Needless to say, it was extremely successful. Now, finally, we’re finally getting more details of the revival at Comic-con. (more…)
Growing up as a kid in the mid 90’s was a lot of fun. One of those big reasons was Legends of the Hidden Temple. In this game show for kids, the object was to complete physical challenges and prove yourself worthy enough to enter the temple. Once inside, you and your partner had to solve a series of puzzles and find the item of the day. It was a great show, and it still is. Now that nostalgia is coming back, and the game show is now a TV movie for Nickelodeon.
At the 90s nostalgia fest that took San Diego Comic Con via Nickelodeon, a trailer for The Legends of the Hidden Temple was released onto the world. And… and… it’s…. *sigh*. You’ll see. (more…)

It’s been a busy San Diego Comic Con for writer/producer Bryan Fuller, who has not just one, but two huge new series to promote before the discerning nerd audience. Of course the first is Starz American Gods based on the Neil Gaiman book, which has been filming in and around Toronto since last spring. Meanwhile, the other series hasn’t even announced a cast yet and is expected to begin filming in a couple of months. Of course the second series is the new Star Trek show for CBS All Access, so there is arguably more attention for this news that Fuller shared at the con, the series’ official title. (more…)
Finally! The first live action trailer for American Gods has been released at Comic Con. The Starz panel, which included several of the cast members, the producers, showrunners/writers Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, and the man himself, Neil Gaiman, also included the announcement that Kristin Chenoweth was announced as landing the role of Easter, the goddess formerly known as Ostara, the goddess of spring.

Everyone knows that Kevin Smith and Ben Affleck are tight, perhaps because they’re both so infamously tied to the “Bennifer” nuclear disaster known as Jersey Girl. But you know who else was in Jersey Girl in a cameo? Affleck’s BFF Matt Damon. Of course that wasn’t the first time Damon appeared in a Smith film, he had a small role in Chasing Amy, appeared as the angel Loki in Dogma, and appeared as himself – the star of Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season – in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Now, in Smith’s new AMC series Geeking Out, Damon is performing for the director again in a different capacity. (more…)
