Producers Kurtzman and Morgan depart Universal's Dark Universe

In the summer of 2014, Universal hired Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan to head up their endeavor to craft a new cinematic universe around their classic monster movie properties - a universe that eventually became known as the Dark Universe.

Exclusive Clip: Tom Cruise and Alex Kurtzman discuss The Mummy

Director Alex Kurtzman's THE MUMMY , the first entry in the Dark Universe that Universal is planning to build around their classic monster characters, has made over $400 million at the global box office - an impressive haul that would be better for the studio if only they hadn't put $125 million into the budget and then spent $100+ million on top of that for marketing....

DVD/Blu-ray Release Dates: AUGUST & SEPTEMBER 2017

The dog days of summer are upon us, and since the movies in the theater traditionally get a little worse from here on out, what better time to look at what's hitting home video? August's big new title is Ridley Scott's ALIEN: COVENANT , but if you want something a little more old school, brand new Blu-rays of PET SEMATARY , and GHOST are coming. September has a few really great...

Head of Universal's Dark Universe isn't sure about its future

The funny thing is, over the last few months whenever someone I know/meet finds out that I work for AITH - or "one of those horror movie sites" - the first thing they always ask me is "How did you convince someone to pay your dyslexic-ass to write words?" To which I reply, "I dunno".  After that, they always ask me what I think of the DARK...

Andy Muschietti talks IT Part 2 & classic movie monsters

If you are new to this site, or just don't read my posts, then you might not know that I am really godd*mn excited about the upcoming feature adaptation of Stephen King's IT from director Andy Muschietti.

Check out Blu-ray special features for The Mummy starring Tom Cruise

Seriously, why didn't Universal just call this film TOM CRUISE starring The Mummy? I guess the studio still hasn't learned their lesson that the Universal Movie Monster universe doesn't need Tom "nothing against the guy" Cruise plastered all over its marketing materials. But that horse is long dead so let's stop beating on the poor bastard. Today we...

It's the Booze Talkin', I'm still excited for the Dark Universe to unfold!

Last week when I sat down for THE MUMMY, I hadn’t read the scathing reviews. Walking in I kept an open mind and dare I say I was hoping for a fun couple of hours. And you know what? That is exactly what I got. And while it appears some have left disappointed, I truly enjoyed the ride. There are a number of factors that played into my reaction to the film. It was fun to see Tom...

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...
