Mehr News als Trailer (Dark Universe abgesagt, Westworld-S2 Anfang 2018, Lord Of The Rings+Name der Rose-Serien), dafür aber Another Wolfcop-Trailer, ein neuer Clip zu Aardmans Early Man, zu Spielbergs Journalismus-Drama The Post mit Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep und Alison Brie, zu den Thrillern Automatic at Sea und Hollow in the Land, zur deutschen Netflix-Serie Dark (scheint ein Mashup aus Saw und It zu sein – sieht gut aus!) sowie zum großartig aussehenden Psychothriller Kaleidoscope.

Kaleidoscope

This intense, twisty thriller unfolds in the darkest corners of a man’s mind. Recently released from prison, mild-mannered Carl (Toby Jones) quietly attempts to move on with his life. Just as he embarks on his first date in 15 years, Carl’s fresh start is shattered by the sudden reappearance of his domineering mother (Anne Reid), whose presence awakens within him a deep-seated trauma. What unfolds is a brain-warping puzzle as reality and illusion, past and present collide and explode in violence. The debut feature from Rupert Jones is a provocative psychological mystery that asks: is it possible to escape our past?

Newsbits:

  • I hate to say it, but I rather see the „Dark Universe“-Crap die than have to watch another Mummy: Universal's cinematic Dark Universe is in danger of being mummified.

    Just five months after Universal released a much-discussed cast photo promising a slew of movies starring the likes of Johnny Depp, Russell Crowe and Javier Bardem — all drawn on characters like the Invisible Man, Wolf Man and Frankenstein in its stable of classic horror films — none of the projects appears to have a pulse.

    Writer-producers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan, who were hired as the monster universe architects, have departed the franchise, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Kurtzman, whose deal with Universal lapsed in September, is focusing on television (he's an executive producer on CBS All Access' Star Trek: Discovery, and his overall deal with CBS involves more than a half-dozen shows), while Morgan has returned to the Fast and Furious franchise and is writing a spinoff for Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.

    In early October, Universal pulled the plug on preproduction that had started in London for Bride of Frankenstein — which was to have followed The Mummy as the second entry in the series — partly because execs felt the script by writer-director Bill Condon wasn't ready. Angelina Jolie had been courted for the lead but is now not attached. Insiders insist Condon (Beauty and the Beast) remains attached, but no date has been set to resume work, and a Feb. 14, 2019, release has been shelved.

  • \o/ ‘Westworld’ Season 2 Premiering Early Next Year, Says Evan Rachel Wood
  • Cronenbergs Rabid gets a remake: „The remake will portray Rose, a young woman who, after an accident leaves her scarred beyond recognition, undergoes a radical untested stem cell treatment. While turning Rose into the belle of the ball, the experimental transformation comes at a price.“
  • Turturro as Baskerville, I'm all in: Rupert Everett & John Turturro’s ‘The Name Of The Rose’ TV Remake Finds Distributor:

    Rupert Everett and […] John Turturro’s Italian TV adaptation of Umberto Eco’s crime novel The Name of the Rose has found an international distributor. Germany’s Tele Munchen Group has acquired international rights outside of Italy for the eight-part series, commissioned by Italian public broadcaster Rai.

    The €26m ($30 million) series is produced by Italian production company Palomar, the firm behind Young Montalbano and 11 Marzo. […] Turturro will star as William of Baskerville with Everett playing Gui. The series is written by Andrea Porporati (La Piovra), Nigel Williams (The Sea Wolf) and Giacomo Battiato (Karol: A Man Who Becomes Pope), with Battiato directing and Luther and Penny Dreadful’s John Conroy as director of photography.

  • Sounds cool: Park Chan-Wook Bringing THE LITTLE DRUMMER GIRL To AMC: „The official synopsis reads as such: On holiday in Mykonos, Charlie (Pugh) wants only sunny days and a brief escape from England's bourgeois dreariness. Then a handsome stranger lures the aspiring actress away from her pals - but his intentions are far from romantic. Joseph is an Israeli intelligence officer, and Charlie has been wooed to flush out the leader of a Palestinian terrorist group responsible for a string of deadly bombings. Still uncertain of her own allegiances, she debuts in the role of a lifetime as double agent in the 'theatre of the real'.“
  • Good choice: Woody Harrelson Says No Thanks To More TRUE DETECTIVE
  • Hm. ‘Lord Of The Rings’ TV Series Shopped With Huge Rights Payment Attached: „ In a deal that is expected to dwarf any TV series to date, I hear the J.R.R. Tolkien estate has been shopping a possible series based on the late author’s The Lord of the Rings novels with a whopping price tag attached. Amazon, Netflix and HBO had been approached about the project, which comes with an upfront rights payment said to be in the $200 – $250 million range. That is just for the rights, before any costs for development, talent and production. It is a payment that has to be made sight unseen as there is no concept, and there are no creative auspices attached to the possible series.“

Another Wolfcop

Another Wolfcop continues the legend of alcoholic werewolf cop Lou Garou. This time around, WolfCop must spring into action to fight an eccentric businessman who has evil intentions of seducing Woodhaven’s residents with a new brewery and hockey team.

Dark

The disappearance of two kids in the German small-town of Winden opens abysses that turn the concept of time on its head. The question is not who has kidnapped the children...but when.

Early Man

Set at the dawn of time, when dinosaurs and wooly mammoths roamed the earth, EARLY MAN tells the story of how one plucky caveman unites his tribe against a mighty enemy and saves the day!

Hollow in the Land

With their father in prison for murder, siblings Alison and Brandon are instantly considered suspects when a string of killings plagues their town, and they must fight to clear their names.

The Post

Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.

Automatic at sea

On a whim, Eve (young Swedish traveler) accepts an invitation from Peter (wealthy heir) to vacation on his family’s private island off the coast of New England. As a series of unexpected delays prevent other guests from arriving, Eve discovers that she has little in common with the increasingly erratic Peter and that something is not quite right on this mysterious island. Gradually the idyllic natural beauty of her surroundings dissolves, and Eve finds herself trapped in an unstable reality punctuated by feverish visions, dimensional shifting and secret pizza.
