Planet of the Apes Header

Planet of the Apes (1968)
Director: Franklin J. Schaffner
Screenwriters: Rod Serling and Michael Wilson
Cast: Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter, Maurice Evans, James Whitmore, James Daly, Linda Harrison
Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 112 minutes
Release Date: April 3rd, 2016

If I told you I was seeing Planet of the Apes in theaters in 2016, you’d assume I was watching the third film in the new series starring Andy Serkis in motion capture technology as Caesar. Thanks to TCM and their Big Screen Classics promotion, the original 1968 classic is back in theaters for only one more day. It premiered on Sunday, July 24th, at several theaters throughout New York City, and I was there with my entire family, including my 5-year daughter.

Preacher 1.9 Dominic Cooper

Preacher
Episode 1.9 “Finish the Song”

Written by Craig Rosenberg
Starring Dominic Cooper, Joe Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Lucy Griffiths, W. Earl Brown, Anatol Yusef, Tom Brooke, Ian Colletti, Jackie Earle Haley
AMC
Air date: Sunday, July 24, 2016, 9pm

Last week on Preacher, Jesse (Dominic Cooper) made his stand against Odin Quincannon (Jackie Earle Haley) and his cult-like acolytes of QM&P. After keeping them away from his family church and dealing with the nagging ghost of Eugene (Ian Colletti), he got knocked out by Donnie (Derek Wilson), who was able to withstand the pull of Genesis by shooting out his own eardrums. Jesse made one last deal with Quincannon: he gets to keep the church IF… he brings God to Annville next Sunday! Can Jesse follow through on his bold and crazy guarantee, or will he be forced to denounce the Lord in front of everyone while Odin turns his church into a new meatpacking factory complete with a food court?

Spoilers below if you have not seen this week’s Preacher:

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Characters Flash Thompson, Liz Allen, Ned Leeds Confirmed

Spider-Man: Homecoming title card

This past weekend, Marvel Studios hd something extra special to show their fans at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Aside from Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming made a very brief appearance to show Hall H attendees from exclusive footage (see our description of what was shown). Now, it’s very unlikely who were not in attendance will get to see this footage any time soon, but they’ll be able to get the entire film next year.

Here’s what we do know so far about the characters in director Jon Watts‘ Spider-Man film: Tom Holland is Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Zendaya plays Michelle, and the film will have a John Hughes vibe. But as for Tony Revolori, Jacob Batalon, and Laura Harrier, their characters have remained under wraps… until now. Check out who they play, and the connection their characters have to the Spider-Man lore here below.

‘The Flash’ Film Casts ‘Dope’s Kiersey Clemons As Iris West

Kiersey Clemons cast in The Flash

In the past few days, you may have heard about what Warner Bros has planned for the DCEU. That Justice League tease finally gave us a proper introduction to The Flash, played by Ezra Miller. As excited as we are for that team-up film, seeing Miller as Allen was a pure delight and has restored my confidence that the DCEU can stand side-by-side with their Marvel Studio competitors. While the Scarlet Speedster’s solo film, The Flash, which will be directed by Dope‘s Rick Famuyiwa, is still years away from release, we are getting a look at the diverse cast. A new report confirms that there will be a small reunion of sorts as Dope star Kiersey Clemons will play Iris West in the film.

More on the story below.

If you’ve followed my reviews of this series so far, you know I am in love with it. So this review is bittersweet. To most in Hawkins, Indiana, Will Byers drowned in a quarry. He had to – they had a funeral and everything. To those who know him best, they have spent days piecing together the truth. There is some sort of monster lurking in Hawkins, that has taken Will to the Upside Down, a parallel dimension to our own. Worse, perhaps is that the government is covering this up, and the monster as well as a powerful but scared little girl, are parts of a Cold War experiment called MK Ultra. Before we get to it, let’s take a minute to review where our essential characters are:
