Hulu’s Locke & Key Is ‘Amazing Family Drama’

After years in development, Hulu’s adaptation of Locke & Key will bring the horror, mystery, and family drama of the comic book series to life. After directing and writing the breakout horror film Mama, Andy Muschietti went quiet for awhile. That all changed, however, when he was tapped for a new adaptation of Stephen King’s IT. Surprising everyone, the film has already pulled in a massive global haul. Muschietti now likely has his pick of projects, and is all set to tackle the sequel to this year’s horror hit.

Live-Action Fullmetal Alchemist Criticized By Original Anime Director

Alphonse from Live Action Fullmetal Alchemist Movie

Seiji Mizushima, the director of the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime series, believes that it was a bad idea to hire an all-Japanese cast for the live-action adaptation.

Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser)- Outlander 301

Outlander is back on our screens for a third season, and it’s a little bit different to the ones that have gone before. Unlike the first two seasons, which kept Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) together in the past, this third season launches with them in different times.

The first two episodes have been slowly revealing the lives of these two star-crossed lovers during their time apart, speeding over years where little happens as each mourns the loss of the other.
