Film & TV News: October 27


  • The bad guy is back: Empire has released a few new pictures from next year’s Suicide Squad featuring Jared Leto’s Joker. Just in time for Halloween!
  • SNL is set to be hosted by Matthew McConaughey for the first time in over a decade, and Adele will be the musical guest. That might just be enough for me to actually tune into SNL again.
  • Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, the highly-anticipated Christmas Special and return of the BBC show, will air on both sides of the Atlantic on January 1st, 2016.
  • Even if you haven’t seen Crimson Peak yet, this conversation between director Guillermo del Toro and fellow directors Christopher Nolan and Alejandro González Iñárritu is highly recommended.


The new Netflix series Master of None actually looks pretty hilarious, despite my reservations about Aziz Ansari:

And another Netflix gig, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, finally gets a full trailer:

David O. Russell’s latest Jennifer Lawrence/Bradley Cooper/ Robert De Niro collaboration Joy:

And here’s the Force Awakens trailer for the zillionth time, for good measure:

In Cinemas

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, Love, Burnt and Our Brand Is Crisis all hit theaters this coming weekend, marking a weird horror-film-less Halloween weekend.


The World Series starts this week and will dominate the TV at your local bar whether you like it or not. Next Saturday sees the premiere of Ash vs. Evil Dead on Starz and the second season of The Returned on SundanceTV. Does anyone watch The Returned? Should I be watching?

On Netflix

The time has come where Netflix seems to be releasing a season of a TV series every week now. The third and final season of Hemlock Grove is now available, for the five or six of you that actually stuck with that show for more than fifteen minutes; Arrow and The Flash and Gotham are now up for the DC Comics camp; and Jessica Jones, the Marvel follow-up to the hit Daredevil, streams at the end of November.

Review of the Week

Check out Pumpkinhead this October 31st, or peruse our John Carpenter Director Series for more scares. Or, for a different kind of scare, go watch Willow. Ya got options, kid.
