Watch The Fantasy Island Trailer

Sony Pictures has debuted the first trailer for Blumhouse’s re-imagining of the classic series Fantasy Island.

The Enigmatic Mr. Roarke (played by Michael Peña) makes the secret dreams of his lucky guests come true at a luxurious but remote tropical resort. But when the fantasies turn into nightmares, the guests have to solve the island’s mystery in order to escape with their lives.

It will also star Lucy Hale (Truth or Dare), Jimmy O. Yang (Silicon Valley), Charlotte McKinney (Flatliners, Baywatch), Parisa Fitz-Henley (Luke Cage, Jessica Jones), Austin Stowell (Catch 22), Maggie Q (Divergent film franchise), Portia Doubleday (Carrie), and Ryan Hansen (Friday the 13th).

Fantasy Island was a fan-favorite during its original run on the small screen. The island drama dealt with dark themes and the supernatural with a little bit of cheesiness as visitors would come to the island to live out their fantasies. Guests could request any fantasy on the unique resort island in the Pacific Ocean, overseen by the mysterious Mr. Roarke and Hervé Villechaize’s Tattoo, but those fantasies rarely turned out as expected as visitors found themselves facing challenges that tested their character.

Jeff Wadlow will direct the big-screen adaptation from a script he is writing with Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs.

HorrorNaments

HorrorNaments are incredibly detailed, precisely sculpted Halloween-themed tree ornaments. Each of the 65+ current HorrorNaments was designed by the owner of The Haunt, West Michigan’s premier haunted attraction.

The idea for HorrorNaments originated in 2011 at a family ornament exchange after the founder’s family struggled to find a Halloween-themed ornament to reflect his success in the haunted house business. HorrorNaments was created to fill that void for the 49.5% of Americans who decorate their homes with Halloween decorations. 

Every year, I put up a pop-culture themed Christmas tree and Michael Myers will be added to my growing roster of ornaments.

The Best Copy of The First Marvel Comics Issue Could Bring $1 Million Or More At Auction

The best copy of the first Marvel Comics issue could bring $1 million or more as the top lot in Heritage Auctions’ Comics & Comic Art Auction November 21-24 in Dallas, Texas.

Marvel Comics #1 Windy City pedigree (Timely, 1939) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. (estimate: $1,000,000+), from the Windy City pedigree, is by far the highest-graded known copy of what is widely considered the ultimate of all Marvel comics, of which only two other copies have earned a grade as high as 9.0. As a matter of perspective, consider that only one other 9.4 exists in CGC’s census for all of the top six most valuable Golden Age issues … combined.

“It is nearly impossible to describe the significance of this issue carrying such a high grade,” Heritage Auctions Senior Vice President Ed Jaster said. “This is an 80-year-old copy of the issue that launched Marvel Comics, and it is in pristine condition. Most collectors never get the chance to see a comic book like this, much less an opportunity to own one.”

The Windy City pedigree collection is known well among high-end Golden Age collectors. Introduced to the market by Chicago dealer Gary Colabuono, the collection was compiled by a Uniontown, Pennsylvania mailman who purchased every first issue he could of both comic books and magazines, starting in the 1940s.

Tom Hanks Becomes Mister Rogers In New Featurette

Sony Pictures has released a brand new featurette for their upcoming biopic drama A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, highlighting Tom Hanks’ incredible transformation into Mister Rogers and how much preparation the Oscar-winning actor went through in order to give an authentic portrayal of the legendary TV personality. 

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood tells the story of the real-life friendship that blossomed between the beloved Fred Rogers and cynical journalist Tom Junod (Matthew Rhys, The Americans). The film will see the cynical journalist begrudgingly accepting an assignment to write a profile piece on the beloved icon and finds his perspective on life transformed, carrying the potential for a heart-warming story that could rival 2013’s drama Saving Mr. Banks, also starring Hanks.

The screenplay was written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster (Transparent, Beautiful Ruins) and is directed by Marielle Heller (Can You Ever Forgive Me?). The movie also stars Chris Cooper (The Town) as Junod’s father. Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf of Big Beach will produce alongside Youree Henley (The Beguiled, 20th Century Woman).

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood will be released in theaters on November 22.

Watch The Invisible Man Trailer

Universal Pictures has released The Invisible Man trailer for the remake of the classic sci-fi horror flick from writer/director Leigh Whannell and Blumhouse.

Starring Two-time Emmy and Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Haunting of Hill House), the film will make its debut on February 28, 2020.

The Invisible Man centers on Cecilia Kass (Elisabeth Moss), a woman trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist. She escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid). But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turn lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.

Jason Blum, our current-day master of the horror genre, produces The Invisible Man for his Blumhouse Productions. The Invisible Man is written, directed and executive produced by Leigh Whannell, one of the original conceivers of the Saw franchise who most recently directed Upgrade and Insidious: Chapter 3.
