Snowpiercer Train

A couple of years back we found out that a TV series based on Snowpiercer, the English-language debut of OKJA director Bong Joon Ho, might be on the way.

TNT has since ordered a pilot episode for the potential show, and the cast is beginning to take shape. The first actor cast was Daveed Diggs (Hamilton, Black-ish), and now Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly has come aboard for one of her rare TV roles.

Joe Hill's Locke & Key Header Image

Hulu has officially ordered a pilot episode for a potential new TV series adaptation of the Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez comic book series Locke & Key. We found out almost a year ago that a new adaptation was being developed, which followed a failed movie adaptation and another TV series attempt at FOX, which got as far as a pilot episode being produced before they decided not to pursue it any further.

This latest attempt to adapt the comic is looking promising so far. It received plenty of interest from multiple networks before Hulu landed it. And not only have they ordered a pilot episode, but LOST and The Strain showrunner Carlton Cuse is set for the same position should it go to series, and they’ve lined up Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson to direct the pilot.

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton
Disney Home Entertainment
Release date: February 28, 2017

Back in November, I got to see Marvel’s Doctor Strange at a special advanced Dolby Cinema screening. I have to say, that was an incredible way to see a film like this. But as I left the theater blown away by both the film and the theatrical experience, I was like, “I can’t wait to watch this again in Blu-ray.” Then I sent an email to the other GoD writers saying, “No one dare even think of requesting Doctor Strange, that one is mine!”

So, basically, after one viewing I loved the movie and already knew I’d be excited to watch it on Blu-ray in the comfort of my own home, and to also check out the bonus features. And here we are, several months later with me now in possession of a “Cinematic Universe Edition” Blu-ray review copy, complete with lenticular cover insert, after having left no one else on staff standing. (Yes, I’m a brutal conquerer and dictator!) Right away, I was like, there’d better be feature-length audio commentary on this thing! And, yes, director Scott Derrickson did provide this for the Blu-ray Edition, so he’s safe.

10 Things We Learned From The Stars Of Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’

Marvel Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is the 14th film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Based on the 1963 comic book character of the same name that debuted in Strange Tales, the film follows Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) as he goes from brilliant but egotistic neurosurgeon to a man with nothing but a pair of crushed hands suffered in a car accident. Strange uses his last bit of money and travels to find The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) who resides in Kamar-Taj. It is there where he learns what it takes to become the Sorcerer Supreme.

We were fortunate enough to sit down recently with a group of our fellow journalists to talk to the cast, director Scott Derrickson, and Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige about the film, how they made hand choreography look like magic, their geek-out moments, and what it was like to work with each other. Check out the top 10 things they said at the press conference here below.

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange
Directors: Scott Derrickson
Screenwriters: Scott Derrickson, Jon Spaihts, C. Robert Cargill
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 115 Minutes
Release Date: November 4, 2016

Marvel Studios has a reputation for raising the superhero movie bar higher and higher with each and every new release. There has been a total of 14 films since they kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man way back in 2008, but Doctor Strange will be the first to venture into the psychedelic world of mysticism. The Scott Derrickson-directed film pays homage to Steve Dikto’s creation by filling the screen with mystical landscapes, M.C. Escher-like bends, and psychedelic visuals that will make even the casual fans cheer. While it is visually stunning in more ways than you can count, Doctor Strange does have a few narrative and pacing flaws. But it is not enough to hurt the overall enjoyment of the movie, as it just retreads familiar territory but with stunning psychedelic visuals. Check out the full review below.

Doctor Strange

Marvel Studios has been describing Doctor Strange as one of their most psychedelic films, and based on the trailers and footage we have seen, that is no understatement.

But as much as we have seen from all those promotional materials and the world, or should I say worlds, there are those who may not be as familiar with the characters involved. So the studio has released a brand new featurette that will help you get acquainted with the title character. Check out the video below.
