Surprise! ‘Benji’ Remake Not Only Happening, But Already Filming
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Brandon Camp's Benji

I, like many others, have a bunch of movie favorites I watched as a kid in the ’80s. Some well-known and enjoyed to this day; others much more obscure. One of the more obscure titles is 1987’s Benji the Hunted, part of the series of Benji the dog movies seen mostly in the ’70s and ’80s. How many of these Benji movies I actually saw, I couldn’t say, but Hunted has always stuck with me.

The series began in 1974 with the simply titled Benji, which was written, directed, and produced by Joe Camp. The movie did insanely well considering the year it was released, making $45 million at the box office on a $500,000 budget. Now comes word that the original is not only being remade by Camp’s son Brandon Camp, but it’s already begun filming.

FOX Rocky Horror Picture Show Time Warp

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again
Based on The Rocky Horror Picture Show by Jim Sharman & Richard O’Brien
Directed by Kenny Ortega
Starring Laverne Cox, Tim Curry, Victoria Justice, Ryan McCartan, Reeve Carney, Christina Milian, Annaleigh Ashford, Adam Lambert, Staz Nair, Ben Vereen, Ivy Levan
Air Date: Thursday, October 20, 2016, 8-10pm

Going into FOX’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again, you know that it can never live up to the 1975 cult classic film, but it can do its originator justice. Unfortunately, this new 2-hour TV special doesn’t.

The original The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a horror-comedy musical, became a counter-culture sensation after midnight screenings generated the now-famous audience participations, cosplay, and in-theater act-alongs. The film itself was an homage to classic science fiction-monster movies, complete with camp, meshed with gender-bending and titillations that were still considered taboo at the time, all set to catchy rock and roll tunes. It was unique, it was exciting, and it resonated with people so strongly that the movie and soundtrack are still in play today, and theater productions continue to be staged around Halloween time each year.

Monty Python Legend John Cleese Recaps ‘The Walking Dead’ (Video)

John Cleese Recaps The Walking Dead

On Sunday night season seven of AMC’s The Walking Dead begins, and fans will finally get the answer to the question they’ve been pondering, theorizing, fearing over the past six months (after getting past that initial unadulterated rage phase after season six ended). And when that first episode begins and we get that answer, chances are high that for some fans things will be brought right back around to unadulterated rage. If you watch the show, you know what that question is. If not, I won’t say any more than this about it (though there will be spoilers below, so proceed with caution).

But while we prepare ourselves mentally and emotionally for whatever is going to happen, there’s still some time for a few laughs. If you need a refresher on what’s gone down in the first six seasons of The Walking Dead, or if, for whatever strange reason, you want to watch the new season but don’t feel like watching the first six, a new video has been released in which comedy legend and Monty Python member John Cleese reminds you/sums up what’s happened so far. It’s basically the same as Samuel L. Jackson’s beginner’s guide to Game of Thrones for us, only shorter and John Cleese style! Check it out below.

Spoilers for American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare

Throughout the first half of season 6 of American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare, we followed the Millers, Matt (Andre Holland) and Shelby (Lily Rabe) telling the cameras their story. Their colonial home in North Carolina was haunted by the first settlers of the Roanoke colony, led by The Butcher, Thomasin White (Kathy Bates). Thomasin, with the help of a witch (Lady Gaga) slaughtered her entire clan and family and have been returning from the dead every blood moon to rid people from their ancestral land. The series, done with “dramatic re-enactments” showed the Miller’s struggle to survive with Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sarah Paulson acting as the Millers.

Deadpool 2 Domino

Given how Deadpool was a huge success, it comes as no surprise that Fox is moving ahead with Deadpool 2. Those who stuck around for the after-credits sequence were given a small treat when the title character told the audience that Cable would be in the sequel. While details on who could play Cable are still sketchy, there is a new report saying who director Tim Miller has his eyes on to play the role of Domino.

According to this new report, Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane), Sienna Miller (High Rise), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond), Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), and Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049) are all on the shortlist to play Domino. More on the story below.

Arrow 502 Header

Season 5 Episode 3: “A Matter of Trust”
Directed by Gregory Smith
Written by Ben Sokolowski & Emilio Ortega Aldrich
Created by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg
Starring Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, Echo Kellum, Paul Blackthorne
The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, October 19th, 2016, 8:00pm

Last week on Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) recruited Team 2.0, hence the name. He was completely brutal to Curtis, Wild Dog, and Evelyn Sharp (Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzalez, Madison McLaughlin), and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) tried to talk some sense into him (she also had a moment where she looked sick). But Diggle (David Ramsey) is back in the military, but got framed and thrown in jail. Mayor Queen made a deal with AmerTek to fund a free clinic for his broken city. One of the reps got attacked by something with magic tentacles. Turns out that “Ragman” is a good guy and AmerTek is in bed with Tobias Church (Chad Coleman). Secret bankruptcies and what not. Prometheus is the new “Big Bad,” who is bigger and badder than Tobias Church. Who could it be?

Spoilers below.

Today Nintendo introduced the world to their latest home console, which was code named the “NX” but will officially be called the Nintendo Switch.
