More Eternals set photos have surfaced of Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh and Kit Harrington.
Finn Wolhard hyped the film’s practical effects on a recent episode of Kevin Smith’s SModcast.
There’s a lot of practical effects. And a lot of the effects that you think would be CGI are not, which I was so happy to be part of.
In the same interview, Wolfhard revealed Floria Sigismondi’s The Turning is secretly set in the 1990s.
It’s set in the 90s. Well, they don’t ever say that it’s the 90s. It has a great soundtrack. They have some great 90s music in there.
In conversation with Rue Morgue, Richard Stanley revealed his adaptation of The Dunwich Horror is scheduled to begin filming this winter.
I’m pleased to say that SpectreVision has basically greenlit two more Lovecraft adaptations, and I’m currently prepping my new adaptation of The Dunwich Horror. It will be set in the same milieu as Color Out of Space, in a near-future, disaster-struck Arkham County. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get that before the cameras this winter. With Dunwich Horror, we’ll go on campus and get back to Miskatonic University for the first time since Re-Animator. We’ll also get to deal with the Necronomicon, the black book at the core of the mythos. So I’m very much looking forward to getting my hands on this.
We also have a trailer for the sequel to the 2018 Indonesian horror film, May the Devil Take You.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley is attached to direct an upcoming episode of Batwoman, written by Daphne Miles.
Rogue One co-writer Gary Whitta confirmed that he is not involved with the upcoming Cassian Andor spinoff series.
Giancarlo Esposito spoke to IGN about Moff Gideon’s motivations for capturing Baby Yoda.
Like any great leader or scientist – clue, clue, clue – with someone who is advanced in a certain way, yeah, you could want to be their best friend, or you could want to co-opt what is inside them to figure out how to make all of us a little better at humanity. So it’s that power and control of a Moff leader who is trying to put the universe back together. But, how does he know everything? How does he know everything that’s going on? He’s a very interesting character and I’m so honored to be a part of this production.
