Who’s Game for ‘Ready Player One’

ready-player-one

Our first look at Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One is finally here. Based on the bestselling novel by Ernest Cline, the adaptation is absolutely epic and finds Spielberg in his wheelhouse – so expect Jurassic Park thrills, E.T. heart, and A.I. ambition and none of that latter-day political/historical snooze-shit!

Set in 2045, the world has gone to shit and its population has taken refuge at OASIS, a virtual universe with real rewards created by an eccentric genius whose death triggers a global competition to find a digital Easter egg granting control of OASIS to its winner.

Tye Sheridan (Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse) plays hero Wade Watts, a young and impoverished 80s aficionado looking to win the game to keep its world accessible to everyone and away from greedy big business.

Movie and gaming icons populate OASIS and are fun to spot in the trailer (we spy with our virtual eye Iron Giant, Freddy Kruger, Duke Nukem, the Back to the Future Delorean, A-Team van, Stephen King’s Christine, and Joust ostrich!). Ready Player One arrives in theaters March 30, 2018.

A trailer has gone online for season two of Netflix original series and water-cooler sensation “Stranger Things.” Picking up about a year after the events of season one, the show finds 12-year-old Upside-Down abductee Will Byers having visions of a new monster coming to destroy the people of Hawkins.

Set to Michael Jackson’s Thriller, the trailer quickly touches on the 80’s nostalgia that made the show so fun while simultaneously flexing its bigger, scarier horror muscle. Everything looks so damn good and creepy, it’s easy to forget Eleven … until she pops up and nearly steals the whole thing!

Grab Your Shitting Pants: ‘Walking Dead’ Season 8 Begins Oct. 22!

twd-8

AMC released a first trailer for season eight of “The Walking Dead” this week and it is five minutes of intense action, gruesome gore, and everything awesome and fun that makes us shit our pants! The footage teases the pending war between Rick Grimes and his growing alliance and big bad Negan and his Saviors.

The feuding footage is pure whiteknuckle and the zombie action will put a smile on your face, but it’s the scenes bookending the trailer that raises eyebrows: Father Gabriel at the mercy of Negan and some walkers; a drastically aged Rick awakening from a deep slumber in what appears to be a hospital room.

Game Changer: ‘Jigsaw’ Is Back!

Jigsaw-Poster

“Games can be won,” says a defiant Laura Vandervoort in the first official trailer for Jigsaw, the eighth film in Lionsgate’s record-breaking SAW franchise. It’s a nice bit of bravado, but can Vandervoort outmaneuver John “Jigsaw Killer” Kramer’s work? Don’t make me laugh like Billy the puppet on his tricycle!

Jigsaw is back and the games are starting again! But, how? Kramer’s dead. Copy cat killer? Jigsaw cult? It doesn’t matter! The traps are gruesome and inspired and hearing Tobin Bell’s voice again will put a smile on your face ten miles wide.

Jigsaw is helmed by Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers) and written by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D) and creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell. It arrives in theaters Oct. 27!

Knock, Knock! Who’s There? ‘Strangers 2′ Bitch!

strangers

Production has wrapped on The Strangers 2, the long gestating sequel to Bryan Bertino’s terrifying 2008 home invasion classic. Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) is now at the helm with a script penned by Bertino and Ben Ketai (30 Days of Night: Dark Days).

Roberts tells Crave:

I love the first one. I think it’s a super cool movie,” he said. “It’s really smartly put together and I think [Bertino] did a really good job of creating a really oddly paced movie. In a good way.

You know, people have played with the whole mask thing since then… they haven’t really done that sort of pacing, and set it in a drama, or the feel the first one had.

So it’s a great opportunity to try something a little different, for me. There’s a real grounded drama. You really buy into this family and the journey they’re going through before everything goes horribly wrong.

Christina Hendricks (”Mad Men”) stars as the immensely busty matriarch of a family stranded at an abandoned trailer park and tormented by masked killers – Pin-up Girl (Lea Enslin), Dollface (Emma Bellomy), Man in the Mask (Damian Maffei) -  during an ill fated road trip.

Lewis Pullman (Aftermath) plays Hendricks’ husband and Bailee Madison (”Trophy Wife”) is their flat chested daughter. The film is slated for a 2018 release.
