Channing Tatum was the front runner for Castlevania, now Van Helsing

Earlier this month, an animated mini-series inspired by the Castlevania video game franchise was released on the Netflix streaming service.

John Landis says Universal's Dark Universe isn't respectful of the monsters

Last week I shared a box office prediction post that said Universal's Dark Universe kick-off flick THE MUMMY , starring Tom Cruise was only set to make about $30M this past weekend. Turns out the film did (slightly) better than that and scored $32M. As I said in that post and will say again here, that may not seem like a small chunk of change, but when you consider that even...

The Mummy (Movie Review)

PLOT: After disturbing the tomb of an evil Egyptian princess, a man finds himself cursed to be a vessel for Set, the god of chaos. REVIEW: Universal's first attempt at relaunching their classic monsters series (Dark Universe, is what it's being called) is Alex Kurtzman's THE MUMMY, a messy, confusing, and only occasionally entertaining hodgepodge of action movie,...

The Mummy reboot may already be a flop at the box office

Well, that was fast. Usually, I am one that keeps mucho up-to-date on all things related to the box office. I don't tend to post many stories about that here as peeps don't seem to care nearly as much as I do about such things. I get that some of the most classic flicks of our genre made zero bucks at the box office - and also that some of the worst have made bucko...

Spoilers: The Mummy has an awesome The Mummy (1999) easter egg

I don't know about this upcoming THE MUMMY starring Tom Cruise. Truth be told I was a bit off-put by the movie once it was announced that Tom Cruise was going to be headlining the flick. Now, let me just say right here and now, I have nothing against Cruise. I couldn't care less about all of his less-than-favorable antics and/or which church he does or doesn't go to....

The Bride of Frankenstein will have much more screen-time in upcoming reboot

Recently it was announced that not only was Universal creating their own cinematic universe of classic movie monsters but also that the next film in line for the reboot treatment was BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN . I'm excited about this new take on the material as I was slightly disappointed by the lack of actual Bride of Frankenstein in the original. I know, it's an utter...

The Mummy gets more clips, featurette, and posters

Some clips have been released from THE MUMMY , and I have to say that I disagree with Universal's decision to put some of these out into the world. Glimpses of horror, action scenes, and character moments are fine, but there are things shown in these clips that I think should have been kept under wraps until the film comes out this weekend. The film's synopsis goes like...

Blumhouse may enter the Dark Universe, Jolie and The Rock still rumored

I think I've made it pretty clear in the articles I've written about THE MUMMY that my hype levels for the upcoming film and for Universal's "Dark Universe" of monster movie reboots is through the roof. 2017 has been an awful year for me so far, and THE MUMMY is one of the movies I'm most looking forward to in hopes that it will provide some solid...
