Black Panther Closes on $750 Million at the Box Office!

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is closing in on the $750 million mark ($733,024,077) at the worldwide box office though whether or not it hits a billion has a lot to do when Avatar: The Way of Water comes out. And that’s December 12 – today is December 4 – which means Wakanda Forever […]

Mike Flanagan’s Intrepid Pictures Leaves Netflix

Apparently Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Gerald’s Game, The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Midnight Mass, The Midnight Club, etc.) is no longer working with Netflix, according to Comicbook.com, which is based on an article from The Wrap that expands upon Flanagan and producing partner Trevor Macy moving their Intrepid Pictures production shingle […]

Return To The Mountains of Madness?

At the Mountains of Madness may make it to the screen after all, though whether little or big is anybody’s guess. In an Indiewire interview Guillermo del Toro talks about his upcoming Pinocchio on Netflix and how animation (of the stop motion variety) inspired his work in live action.

Apparently I’m not the only person to think so because The Wrap has recently reached the same conclusion (you’d have to join WrapPRO to read the full article but the two paragraphs you can read gratis are enough) albeit 11 […]

The Panther Strikes!

I said that Black Adam would have a problem when Black Panther: Wakanda Forever premiered though people say a lot of things, it doesn’t make them true. Though the proof is in the pudding. Wakanda Forever has been out for two days – it premiered November 11 – and has pulled in $330 million. Now […]

‘Sandman’ Wakes For Season Two!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman has been renewed for a second season! This is really good news because despite appearing to do well, appearing in Netflix’s Top Ten for numerous weeks, the series was supposedly quite expensive and when combined with their famously opaque system of determining whether or not something […]
